Your New Moon in Virgo Horoscope & Affirmation, According To Your Zodiac Sign
The season of the harvest is in full affect; where there is gratitude, there is also abundance. Given the unparalleled circumstances of the present moment, it is essential that we nurture our mind, body, and soul, and this is precisely what Virgo season is instilling in us all. Governed by analytical Mercury—messenger god and the planet of communication, thought process, and day-to-day due diligence—the essence of Virgo highlights the synergy and/or communication taking place between the mind, body, and spirit, while Gemini who specializes in the more logical, and social aspects of communication. Though some may refer to Virgo as the “perfectionist” of the zodiac, there’s a lot more to this mutable earth sign than meets the eye. For Virgo, there is beauty in the intricate details and the tedious process. This, of course, depends on how you look at it, but something as simple as tending to your due diligence goes a long way. And if there’s one thing Virgo season is here to teach us, it’s that our daily rituals are sacred. Think about it: without a productive routine—where you can exercise your duties responsibly and practically—chances are you're not in the right mindset to create the stability you crave, right? The key is to make sure you're showing up for yourself in the process and by that I mean, practicing accountability. Tapping into this energy will not only make your life easier, but also serve as a catalyst in regard to your divine mission on the planet.
With that being said, there’s a powerful new moon in Virgo headed our way, and you don’t need to have personal planets in this mutable earth sign to benefit from its magic, and divine fertility. *Everyone has Virgo somewhere in their birth chart, so take a moment to check which astrological house belongs to 14 degrees Virgo.* A friendly reminder, the new moon occurs the moment the moon, the sun, and earth align via the same longitude line, which is why the moon becomes invisible. Astrologically, this takes place when the moon conjuncts the sun, in the same degree of a zodiac sign, which in this case is Virgo. Vanishing into the night sky on Sept. 6 at exactly 8:52 p.m. EST, this rich lunation is not only presenting us with a clean slate to start again, but a completely different mindset at that. This, of course, is all thanks to the astrological aspects at play, as well as the fact that there are a total of five planets transiting earth signs: sun, moon, Mars, Uranus, and Pluto. Keep in mind, the element earth has everything to do with abundance and stability, and Virgo’s mutable earth is here to strengthen us in more ways than one. In fact, its (mutable) modality is known for being incredibly versatile and extraordinary, which is precisely where Virgo’s power to analyze, crystalize, and simplify comes in. Sitting across from Pisces—via the astrological axis of self-sacrifices and divine duties—the essence of Virgo is equally as healing as it is detoxifying.
The beginning of the lunar cycle, the new moon phase is a symbol of rebirth, renewal, and new beginnings. After all, the moon is a representation of your unconscious mind and emotional experiences; therefore, getting in touch with its ebb and flow is a powerful way to cultivate self-awareness. In a practical sign like Virgo, however, the new moon brings forth an earthy kind of fertility, highlighting everything from our health regimens to our general state of mind. Sitting in close proximity to go-getter Mars, themes revolving around the physical body, self-care, and general productivity levels are bound to be top of mind during this time. What are you trying to improve when it comes to your day-to-day lifestyle? Have you been exercising more often? Aggressive Mars—god of war and the planet of assertion, energy, passion, and sexual desire—will also be in harmony with transformative Pluto, fueling us with the determination, willpower, and razor sharp vision we need in order to succeed. Although, come to think of it, the new moon’s exact trine to revolutionary Uranus is more than enough to catapult us towards the future, as this electric synergy will more than likely spark a tremendous breakthrough in our lives. Have you been anxiously waiting for something to manifest? The power of divine timing is always at play but in case you’re wondering… no, there is no such thing as a coincidence. Also, Uranus is retrograde in Taurus, and this is helping us adapt to the intense changes we are undergoing.
Either way, the essence of Uranus—the planet of change, chaos, innovation, and rebellion—is bound to stir things up in our world a bit, in order for us to fully align with our higher selves. Truth is, it doesn’t matter if you’re an accountant, entrepreneur, or even a light worker; the spiritual awakening taking place is bringing you closer to your divine mission on the planet. It’s an electric shockwave of genius combined with crystal vision. Tune into these universal frequencies, and put your plans in motion. Create the change you seek within, and all around you. Focus on what’s tangible, (Virgo) and be clear with your intentions. You’re ready for this. Harmony-seeking Venus thrives when transiting through her sign of rulership, Libra, but the planet of love will simultaneously square cathartic Pluto—Lord of the Underworld and planet of regeneration—in the process. Use your discernment when it comes to relationship dynamics and agreements in general. Don’t compromise your values and more importantly, use your power wisely. Ironically enough, Mercury will kick off its retrograde journey at 25 degrees Libra—the same degree Venus is currently transiting through—on Sept. 27, suggesting that we will be taking a second look at the relationship dynamics that come up during the new moon. Fortunately, Venus’ trine to Jupiter retrograde adds a layer of hope and optimism to the mix which, in turn, helps us focus on the bigger picture. Meaning, if you’re feeling challenged in a particular relationship, where things feel unjust, there is still hope for something greater.
