The New Moon in the sign of Libra starts a good cycle in which to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Scales. First and foremost, get clear on what Virgo is all about and how you might benefit from embracing Virgo qualities. Virgos are all about planning, organization, and being of service. Think school supplies, clearing out your closet, or donating to a food bank, for example.
Virgo thinks methodically but is also very humble and warm. So during Virgo season, We’re looking to balance the perfectionism that comes up with Virgo energy while also really embracing and being kind to yourself.
Knowing that Virgo can be a bit of a perfectionist, plus considering the influence of Mars in Gemini, nervous tension may run high. Still, though, Virgo is an earth sign, so grounding practices will be helpful and supportive at this time. That’s a really good way of working through any kind of racing thoughts or a sense of overwhelm.
We have a chance to build our negotiating skills without compromising our principles or needs, and without resorting to appeasement. It’s a time to work on re-balancing our relationships and to recognize our partners as teammates rather than adversaries.
This New Moon brings fresh and creative energy into our lives, and more specifically, into our relationships. This is a cycle in which balancing our close personal relationships becomes an urgent desire. Negotiations may be especially effective, as we are inclined to assert our needs in ways that don’t offend others. Because this moon is opposite Jupiter, we should watch for exaggeration and excess. However, we do need a fresh start. Shooting too high or too far won’t help us achieve our goals sooner. Sitting at the halfway point of the zodiac, Virgo is the last of the “personal” signs. The mutable earth sign is the final stop before the journey expands with the highs and lows of partnership, family, and society — aka Libra through Pisces.
Go into this new moon with a little more gentleness for yourself; Virgo loves to nitpick about the details for the benefit of the system as a whole, so use its focused energy to clean out the gunk in your life. Yes, it’s more annoying than just writing down your goals, but a little precision under this new moon will go a long way.
