NEW MOON IN VIRGO 17 degrees
A New Moon in the sign of Virgo will take place on September 9th, 2018. New Moons are a door opening from the Universe. YOU must lay seeds in this area of life AFTER it appears, depending on your sign (and rising sign) to receive the greatest change. The power of this New Moon lasts for six months to a year. The actions you take from September 9th – September 21st will likely come to fruition in very big ways by February 19th, 2019 (plus or minus four days) depending on the success of your initial plans.
ENERGY FORECAST: A LOVING UNIVERSE
The energy forecast for this New Moon will bring forth many of the aspects of the earth sign, Virgo. A sign of work, fitness, routine, and practicality, Virgo energy likes to get all of the details in a row to plan and prepare. Ruled by Mercury, a planet of the mind and communication, we will all be faced with getting the answers we need or laying the framework for things to come. Even in areas of love, creativity, adventure, or relationships, we will be eager to “read the fine print” and make sure we have a strong, steady foundation in order to build and grow something, rather than watching it flourish organically. We want to assess how we are going about living our lives and how we can improve our growth not just immediately, but further on down the road.
One of the strongest attributes of this New Moon is an opposition to Neptune, which can manifest in two ways. Neptune in this angle can bring forth magical, lyrical inspiration to our lives or art, or a profound, deep connection with another kindred spirit: romance, true love, or a spiritual relationship. However, for those who are prone to addiction or darker attributes, some people may lose themselves in their “fantasy” and overindulge in drugs, alcohol, or other “shadow aspects” within their personality. Yet, because there are so many dazzling rays shooting across the sky, with Jupiter and Pluto in a happy alliance, along with Jupiter and Neptune drizzling gold upon our lives, we will be feeling support from a loving Universe.
Expect that people will start to open their hearts to believe in you – and generous opportunities will finally be presented. For many months now, we have been in a period where the Universe was bringing massive changes into our lives – yet, with retrogrades forcing us to slow down and assess our options (and review the past that led us to be here now), we were at the mercy of cosmic storms. Yet, one of the most spectacular aspects of 2018 – the absolutely tremendous embrace of Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn that we have been blessed with since May – also reaches out to sync with Mercury, which has just danced into Virgo. This lovely Earth trine provides stability to our relationships, projects, and personal growth. Anything that moves forward now can be expected to have a steady foundation. Communicate your thoughts to people and to the Universe and know that honesty, integrity, and truth are rewarded. Communicate honesty to yourself. What do you truly want? Your hearts desires can become physical. They can become flesh.
Find out where your life will begin to flourish and grow for many years to come by reading your sign below.
Work, work, work, work. It’s time to buckle down and get everything moving in motion. Use this time to amplify your work life. Ask for more projects from employers. If you're self-employed, advertise and get your name out there. Ask for referrals. If you work for a business, make sure you're being seen by your superiors. You'll also be focusing on your fitness and daily rhythm. How do you balance your work-life? Anything to do with fitness/health is also in focus: want to lose weight? Kick that bad habit? Quit smoking? Get on a plan. Meet a doctor. Stop waiting. Do it now. If you want to get a new job, this would be a time to be rocking out those resumes. Use this time well. Grind. It’ll pay off.
Love, romance, fun, adventure, and creativity shine for you now. You'll be more attractive, so if you're single, get your face out there! Meet people. It's better to meet people through friends or socially rather than apps. Plan some events. Some of you may be moving and changing up your lifestyle. Embrace every ounce of change that is coming. You're worth it. Also, there may be a focus on art projects and you may feel more inspired than any recent times. Embrace that muse. It was meant for you. If you have children, they may be taking focus for you. Allow a lyrical, romantic, and beautiful spotlight to hit your life and inspire your heart for the entire year to come. Your heart will be lit on fire.
The foundation of your life can change. The way you love yourself, self-love, as well as everything to do with family, home, your "chosen home/family," Mother/Father relationships, and anything to do with domestic matters will be apparent now. Jump on real estate if you can. Update your living space. Buy some new furniture, give a wall a fresh coat of paint, look for that perfect cooking set for you to entertain with. Being domestic is going to go well for you, now, so invite friends over or use this time to enjoy your home. Also, you’re going to be considering what truly makes you happy and if you have the things in your life you need, particularly self-respect and self-love. Look in the mirror and ask yourself: "Do I like myself? What do I truly need? What makes me happy? Am I on a path that is fulfilling emotionally?” Answer these questions truthfully.
Get ready to expand all areas of communication. Focus on advertising, social media, grow your presence online or with people, and anything ruled by communication will flourish. Meet new people. Reach out to new contacts. Ask others for new contacts. Submit a resume. If you want a job in any of these areas listed, get it, because you can. Writing. Agencies. Contracts. It's all lighting up. If you are launching a campaign in any of these areas, it will be divinely blessed by the cosmos. The time is now. Lay the seeds.
Money seems to be about to come in – or ways to generate more of it. Increase your income by looking for better jobs or by asking for a raise. Show you're qualified. Update that resume. Also focus on the things you "own," especially your possessions. People are not possessions, but if you look at people in that way, make sure they're yours, dependent on you, and you will lock that down. What do you own? Make sure it's yours to stay -- because it can be. If you're looking to buy things, you're likely to have luck.
This New Moon is ALL ABOUT YOU, and that means you are in the spotlight. Use this time to evaluate who you are, what you want, and where you are going. You can utilize the power of this New Moon in any way you’d like, but it is the only New Moon to fall in your sign until next year. Use this time to analyze how you want to shine – and then go for it! Put yourself out there. Get a fresh new haircut, wardrobe, or style. Start that project that’s been on the backburner that you’ve always wanted to pursue. Become the person you were meant to be. If your birthday falls three days before or after September 9th, this will be a BIG year for you. It will be one with lots of new beginnings, new relationships, and you will see how this year marks a major change for your life. You may move to a new home or city or see a huge shift in your lifestyle and view of the world. This will also occur if you have 17 degrees Virgo as an Ascendant/Rising Sign (+/- 4 degrees). Be ready! Here it comes.
All things that are hidden and growing will soon come to light for you. Your time is coming. Every dream, fire, desire, and focus is in your scope now. Things may come out that you've long hidden or things that have been hidden by other people, so be aware. This New Moon will "clear out" the past year, and get you ready to finally shine. Lay any seed you want to germinate slowly. It will need more time than most. Lay your biggest endeavors at the next New Moon October 8th, 2018, so use this time to release the past and let go of pain and enemies.
Your dreams and aspirations, as well as friends, are heating up. What do you want long-term and how do you get it? Think about that vision you've always wanted. Make a plan. You're good at that. Create the steps. Make it possible. This can cover any area of life. However, you're about to heat up a lot of social fun, and you're likely to find these dreams align with new people you meet, so say YES to your social engagements and watch your coming year light up with stronger friendships and ferocity.
This New Moon will help lay a pattern of success in your career for you that will last six months to a year. The seeds you lay around this time will crown you in success, glory, or public recognition. Send resumes. No updated resume yet? Do it now. And make sure you make a list of some top candidates you want to apply to. Search out anyone and anything that can improve your power, “fame,” and status in your life. Sometimes, this even means aligning yourself with people or partners in order to create united power. If you want a public marriage, relationship, or business engagement, this would be the time to lay that forward too. Pay attention to offers that come by, new projects that are gaining momentum, or any lover/partner that may able to lift you to the stars.
Grow your mind, expand your horizons, and travel are open roads to you now. Academics, spirituality, and media (public relations, publication, television, writing of all sorts but on a very large scale) can be blessings to you. Find ways to better yourself by looking at how you are connected to the greater world. Join groups. Fine tune skills. Find mentors. Ask for help. This is a pivotal moment to get your life together before you are about to ramp up to career momentum at the next New Moon. New experiences are awaiting you, so buckle up and get ready for the ride. You’re going to flourish.
Anything to do with deep union is in focus. Loans. Joint bank accounts and businesses. Combined projects and ownership. Sexuality, especially when it is not in balance. Secrets. Things that are not equal. This will be a time where you can forge stronger unions and start new ones. Money is likely to be in focus for many of you. The biggest thing you'll be thinking about is: what do you owe me? What do I owe you? Make sure that you open yourself to deeper connections and to giving and receiving in more fulfilling ways. However, do not take on more “debt” than you can give back – remember, balance in partnerships, however you establish them, is key.
Partnerships. Business. Marriage. "Becoming official." Long-term friendships. Unions. You can be blessed with all. This is a good time to assess what you want in a serious partner and what you do not. Make a list. If you have a partner (in business or love), use this time to talk about taking your union to the next level and how you can compromise and work better together. If it’s not going to work, it may be time to let that relationship go. For those looking for key partnerships, it may be a time where you meet a destined one or someone finally steps up in the ways you’ve been hoping for. This may also be a fortunate time in connection with the public.
