This month's New Moon falls under the Earth sign of Virgo. This gives us a chance to evaluate how recent events may have brought out changes in our lives. The last Full Moon we experienced was under Water sign Pisces. Pisces Full Moon left us somewhat vulnerable and sensitive, but also allowed us to understand our own feelings and thoughts about our circumstances. There is a contrast to Pisces opposite sign Virgo. In the next two weeks, we can become more grounded and practical in more than one way. Virgos are organized and helpful, but also tend to be critical towards themselves and others. We should remind ourselves to be patient and kind with our family, friends, and work associates. Careers are a bigger focus this month, so expect an improved work-life balance if you've been making the efforts to succeed!
New Moon events are the time to attract and create positive changes. Health and well-being is essential foundation for our success in life. Be open to doing things differently to find more ways to feel refreshed on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Whether you add yoga to your daily routine, or decide to switch up your diet, remember that the goal is to create a more balanced lifestyle. In the career department, Virgos excel in their work ethic because of their ability to take realistic and achievable steps towards success. However, you should remind yourself to resist the urge to bite off more than you can chew to avoid disappointment. Ask yourself, what small yet effective steps can I take over the next few weeks to see real, positive improvements? This might include removing yourself from toxic social situations. If there are people around you who take up too much of your time and/or do not help expand your life in productive ways, you may have to create some distance. It's up to you to decide what needs to be done to improve the quality of your everyday life!
We should all also be aware that there are other planets affecting this New Moon that will add some confusing and tense energy for us to work with. Be clear in your communication and work with what you know. You may not be able to always see a clear picture and that's okay. Virgo tells us to do what's best for ourselves, to be self-sufficient without feeling drained. That includes creating time and space to heal ourselves first before taking any actions. If you feel stuck or lost during this time then take advantage of this energy by clearing your mind. If you or someone else had sickness of the body or of the heart, love and reassurance will guide us towards true healing. Write down your thoughts and goals, get more organized at home, or do a ritual to attract what you desire. With the right efforts and intentions, this Virgo New Moon can help you to achieve your goals!
