At 1:30 AM EDT today, the New Moon occurs as the Moon aligns with the Sun in the sign of Virgo. A time of new beginnings, this New Moon presents an excellent opportunity for us to formulate some goals regarding “all things Virgo.” We’d do well to concentrate on new ways to get our day-to-day life organized. We might think about the keywords for this particular and earthy sign — such things as analytical, intelligent, reserved, critical, helpful, conscientious — and consider ways to incorporate these traits into our personalities.
The New Moon in Virgo is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Virgin, such as building our powers of healthy, constructive discrimination, beginning a new project that requires attention to details, starting a health regime, setting up specific routines that will help us manage our lives in constructive and mindful ways, and handling the finer details of our day-to-day life in an organized, step-by-step fashion so that we can free our minds of clutter.
This New Moon occurs as Jupiter and Uranus move towards an opposition — an atmosphere that is a little too risky, disorganized, or chaotic for Virgo’s tastes — and the quincunx from Uranus to the New Moon emphasizes this awkward relationship. However, we’ll do best if we allow for some surprise elements now. Fortunately, Virgo is an adaptable sign. Striving for perfection can be a wonderful challenge, as long as we don’t allow ourselves to become overly focused on flaws and feel guilty or stressed about them.
The Moon continues its transit of Virgo only until 6:06 AM EDT when it enters relationship-focused, gracious Libra.
A void of course Moon occurs from 1:30 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a conjunction to the Sun), until the Moon enters Libra at 6:06 AM EDT.
