On September 14th, 2023 at 6:39 PM MST, we will have the New Moon in Virgo. Both the Sun and Moon will be meeting at 21 degrees of the sign. Each month the Sun and Moon join together in a new sign for a rebirth of the Moon. The Moon rules our emotions and our intuition, it shows us what we need to feel comforted in this lifetime. This time the reset happens in the sign of Virgo, which rules over our health. This is a grounded, earthy energy. What house do you have this Virgo energy in? What natal planets does it make contact with? Don’t know? Come and join my Sip n Stars group. We meet once a month before each New Moon. I help you understand the energy of the sign where the New Moon is happening, help you craft some sample wishes, give you a lesson on manifesting, and then do some chart readings for those who attend live. Sign up here. And you can even have a friend join you for free the first session.
Virgo is the ruler of the 6th house of the Zodiac. Virgo is a healer, a naturopathic one. It rules our health, our daily activities, our work, even our pets. It is a place where we find a natural inclination to be of service to others. Healers use alternative methods like Reiki, Hypnosis, Crystals and Sound therapy. The ruler of Virgo is Mercury. This is what gives those with strong Virgo energy so much attention to detail, and a bit OCD about having a lot of order and structure in their lives. Details, details, details, they never miss a detail. If you struggle with this find a Virgo to help you, like me.
During each new moon we have a chance at a new beginning. We get to create 10 new moon wishes, and we want to do them within about 8 hours of the event, after may work best. This is an earth sign, so it is helpful to work with this element when creating your intentions. Write your wishes out, and then plant them like seeds in the earth. Choose a plant that is still in the process of blooming. Make sure these are wishes that are good for both the ego and the soul.
Your wishes this month are focused on things that are a part of your daily routines. This is a great time to wish for a new job, a healthy diet and workout plan, a new pet might be on your wish list. You can wish to get better organized, and learn how to pay attention to all the details. You can wish for better health in general. To go even more in-depth about this sign check out my article and hypnosis session here. Then take a look below at how all the planets are interacting during this event.
The ruler of this New Moon is Mercury, as it is the ruling planet of the sign of Virgo. It is home in its sign, but it is in retrograde. That means there is something about the past you need to understand in order for this new beginning to happen. Something you need to review in careful detail. You may have missed something, or overlooked some information. Now you have a second chance to understand your Virgo lessons. In fact, Mercury is almost at a complete standstill so it is putting out a lot of energy as it gets ready to end its retrograde right at the time of this New Moon. Something might actually blow your mind and create a new way of living for you. Whatever you have been learning over the past several weeks of the Mercury retrograde, it is now time to put that information to good use. It's no coincidence that the Sun and Moon are meeting at the exact same degree that Mercury started its retrograde. The two events are connected.
The Sun and Moon are making a trine over to Uranus in Taurus, which is also now retrograde. This is helping you shift in unexpected ways, to make a surprising fresh start. Outer planets bring us a lot of time for introspection. But the time for withdrawing to do that sort of work, may quickly come to an end because of this contact to the planet Uranus. In fact, all 3 of the outer planets, Pluto, Neptune and Uranus are making positive contact to one another. There may be something at a mass consciousness level that is awakened. Something from the past is being activated, as all 3 are in retrograde.
Neptune in Pisces loosely opposes the Sun and Moon in Virgo. This is a battle for healthy boundaries. It is also the need to get back in contact with our beliefs, and our spiritual side. Virgo is so busy focused on the details, that they sometimes forget there is more to life than just work, and being busy. There is a need to just ‘be’ as well. Some balance can be restored as a result of this tension.
Jupiter, like Uranus, is also in the sign of Taurus, where it just began its retrograde that lasts through the end of the year. It is pretty wide of the planet Uranus, and the Sun and Moon, but it is a very large influential planet. It provides us a big growth opportunity. In Taurus, we are getting lessons on self-worth, finances, love, beauty and values. Jupiter entered into Taurus on May 16th. What have you been learning so far? What are you ready to review in more detail? Something may spark your interest as a result of the new moon activities.
Venus, ruler of Taurus, is in a square to Jupiter now. They will speak together for several days. The two benefics even in a square are trying to help you to feel better about something that is going on in your life. They are trying to show you what you need to change in order to find your joy again. Venus is also in a sextile to Mars in Libra, making one of the things you hope to heal a relationship. One you feel very passionate about. Mars here is stirring things up so when the South Node comes through later, you see what you need to see, and either walk away, or work to restore balance in your relationships. Mars and Venus are the only planets not retrograde, this is where you focus your attention to try to move something forward.
Chiron in Aries, also retrograde, is making an odd angle back to the new moon. This can bring up painful feelings, in unexpected ways. But the point of them being triggered now is so you can heal them. On the other side of Chiron is the North Node. This healing is part of your fated journey. When you heal whatever this is, or let the shame and embarrassment go, a new beginning will show up for you. A fated one.
