VIRGO NEW MOON 2016

We'll begin September with a New Moon in eclipse!

Virgo influences our daily routines, our health, and service to others. Virgo is the ordinary details of our days. It's our ability to discern the wheat from the chaff.

A New Moon is the seed, the fresh start for the month ahead.

Last year, 13th September, also had an eclipsed New Moon in Virgo. This one will be occurring in the same area of life (House) as last year. You will likely see a similarity in what's starting now with what went on back around that date.

Personally, I had moved house a month earlier, with my BF-to-be-husband, and so such a change caused my daily routine to be completely different. This year, I'm soon to move house again and amongst a community. Once again, my daily routine will be very different to what it is currently.

Virgo calls us to start projects, relationships, or new ventures, with a sense of clarity and discernment. It is setting goals that affect our daily and basic needs.

So what do you need in place, with your daily habits and routines, that enables you to feel healthy, rested, clear, and capable?

You might need naps, quiet, time alone, teamwork, feeling appreciated, creative outlets, body work, or structure. Virgo is about specifics. Now is a good time to put whatever details you need in place.

This begins with our own certainty of what we need. When we are clear in our own heads, we are better able to communicate our needs to others. Then, our loved ones, business associates, friends, or work colleagues, can be supportive. At the very least, they're not left with any doubts about why we are off obtaining for ourselves what reduces our stress.

A Virgo New Moon is also a time when we have the potential to analyse where we have been slacking. Perhaps you've been; staying up too late, losing yourself in social media, eating junk food, neglecting your yoga practice, choosing distractions over hard work.... whatever it is that takes away from you feeling vibrant as well as useful.

Now is the perfect time to clean up your act.

Virgo needs to feel of practical use, and we can do that best when our life is clear of the debris of modern living or cluttered mental attitudes.

If you make sure that the details of how you need to walk through your days are properly in place, you will sidestep the anxiety and stress Virgo is prone to. Instead, ensuring that our basic needs are met means we are content, calm, and able to take care of ourselves and offer unencumbered service to others.

This eclipsed New Moon, at 9°, is touching the North Node, a karmic point. So for many of us what we are starting or heading into, is life changing.

Accelerated growth that's soul defining.

Opposite nebulous Neptune in retrograde, we need to be careful that we are not led away from practical details towards fantasy, wishful thinking, and Romantic ideals.
Keep a balance between retaining your dreams but also doing what is pragmatic. As well as balancing your needs and other people's reactions. It's a time when sensitivity with others is at it's height. Check with others before allowing misunderstandings to develop.

Neptune also offers the chance to add soulfulness to our daily routines. Whether it's directly with meditation, or more integrated, perhaps as a more compassionate and spiritual approach to the work we do.

In challenging relationship to the Saturn-Mars conjunction, we have available to us some mighty determined energy to manifest our new ventures. But this is done with hard work, not luck. The opportunity is there. Focus, set clear goals, and put in the effort, and you will reap what you sow.

Peace & clarity dear souls,
Autumn
