A new moon occurs in Virgo on September 8th, and with Mars (planet of action) still in Virgo, this can be a great time to get work done and start work projects, whether in your actual job or at home or personal. You can pay closer attention to the details, get organized, and figure out exactly what you need to do. The new moon in Virgo of 2021 is also an energetic cleansing bringing all of us a dose of much needed renewal and drive.
The New Moon in Virgo Packs Refresh-Oriented ‘Back-to-School’ Energy
New beginnings are exciting, but they also require work, and the upcoming new moon in Virgo of 2021, occurring on September 6th at 8:51 a.m., ET, will remind us of this. Providing the practical energy needed to move forward, Virgo energy supports dreams and wishes only materializing with the help of daily practice, repetition, and work. With that in mind, the Virgo new moon of 2021 aims to inspire more focus on the details of life, helping us to identify what should be tweaked in order to improve the larger picture in our lives.
In astrology, a new moon occurs when the moon and sun form an exact connection in the same sign, causing the appearance in the sky to look like the total absence of a moon. This cosmic event initiates a new lunar cycle, representing beginnings, fresh starts, and new perspectives.
With this new moon in Virgo of 2021, expect daily tasks and busy work to increase with a focus on health, aligning with back-to-school time. This particular new moon will form a close connection with the planet of action, drive, and ambition, Mars, anchored by Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, providing stability and a solid foundation for change. The new moon is also forming a realistic opposition with Neptune retrograde in Pisces. The need to get organized, or restructure certain habits or daily routines is also in order: Now’s the time to get down to business after a playful season in Leo.
Keep in mind that change creates an energetic space for growth and opportunity: The universe is clearing out what no longer is in alignment in order to attract what is, and we can expect sudden shifts and surprises over this two-week energetic window. This is sparked by the grand earth trine connection between the new moon, Mars in Virgo, Uranus in Taurus retrograde, and Pluto in Capricorn retrograde. This is a harmonious planetary alignment in astrology that provides a stable portal to easily manifest the harvest from past work. New decisions, contracts, and discussions surrounding financial value and worth can be a focus, too.
We can also expect improvements surrounding love, relationships, or business contracts. The planet ruling over love and agreements, Venus, will be comfortable at home in the sign of Libra and forming a beautiful connection with lucky Jupiter in Aquarius retrograde. Venus and Jupiter are the two positive planets in astrology, and when well-aspected, they can make our lives easier. Expect past opportunities to resurface, relationship breakthroughs, and expansive beginnings.
