Happy New Moon!
Happy New Moon in Virgo!
The seasons are changing, and we are preparing for fall and winter here on the Northern Hemisphere. As the seasons change, we too may be feeling drawn inward towards our own personal shifts and transformation.
This New Moon in Virgo supports both introspection and healing that can take place on many levels and be felt throughout the entire month. You are taking a healing journey to become the best version of yourself.
Healing seems to be a major theme right now and should be a top priority as this Moon Cycle progresses. We begin this cycle in the earthy sign of Virgo, the Healer, and wind it back down during the Last Quarter moon taking place in the watery sign of Cancer, the Nurturer.
Grab a cup of warm tea and read on to see what this New Moon Cycle holds for you!
The New Moon takes place in Virgo on September 19th
Like mentioned above, this New Moon is very supportive of healing. There may be something that has been bothering you for quite some time now, and the answers you are seeking in regards to healing will soon be shown to you, but you must first quiet the mind to be open to these answers.
One influence of Virgo is the need to find order and detail. When the moon is in Virgo we tend to analyze our surroundings or situation; which can be very helpful for our healing and growth, but this New moon you may need to slow down and sit in silence first in order for these answers to be shown to you.
The Healer within is waiting to speak to you, but you must first stop over-thinking your situation and be open to its message. Listen to what your body may be telling you. If you have had a physical ailment that has been on your mind, begin to look for whatever emotional connection could be related to it.
Give your body nourishing food at this time. When the Moon is in Virgo, your body may become more sensitive to low-grade, processed food or harmful substances.
The card pulled for this phase is the Support card. Ask yourself what it is that you really need right now to support your healing journey.
Remember that you are supported in your healing by those around you, but ultimately you must be supportive of yourself right now.
You have shown up for yourself more times than anyone else has. Show yourself some love and gratitude this week. It is important to treat yourself with love during this time.
The First quarter Moon takes place in Sagittarius and Capricorn on September 27th.
This first quarter moon takes place in Capricorn just as the seasons change.
You may be feeling the need to put things in order or prepare for the changes.
There is no need to feel rushed or stressed during this time, even though you may feel presented with that energy from others or circumstances in your life.
Stay focused on your current goals and remember to act with grace under any pressure that you are experiencing. It will not last, and with patience you will be able to achieve everything that you are needing.
The card pulled for this cycle is the Surrender Card. Try to relax and go with the flow during this time. Do what you can do, but relax about whatever it is that feels is out of your control right now. If you are feeling stuck or in a place where you can't act, allow yourself to just be still. Sometimes we truly win, when we surrender for the moment.
Full Blood Moon
This Full Moon takes place on October 5th, and is known as the Blood Moon, marking the darker months ahead. This Full Moon takes place in the fiery sign of Aries.
The Full Moon brings heightened emotions and deeper feelings, while the influence of Aries likes action and spontaneity. The Moon is opposite of Mercury during this time, making this a bit of a challenging time, as conflicts could arise with others if we are not watchful.
There may be a sense of restlessness in the air, as we have so much energy going on, and no where to put it. There is something that needs to be expressed and energy needs to get flowing. Be careful it doesn't explode out of you.
The card pulled for this cycles is the Play card, which is very fitting for the astrological dynamics right now! You may have be feeling quite expressive, with a good eye for detail during this time, making this a great time for anything artistic. So open up and play a little bit to express this energy in a physical way.

The Last Quarter Moon in Cancer takes place on October 12th.
The Last Quarter Moon takes place in Cancer and it feels almost like coming full circle with the journey that the Virgo Moon has brought us on.
As the moon winds back down to New, we are called in once again towards our healing process, this time supported by the nurturing sign of Cancer.
Indulge in your self care once again, and look back on the lessons you have learned this past month.
You may be feeling vulnerable during this time or notice increased emotions due to the Cancer influence. So tend to yourself and your needs right now. Focus on your home and family and nurture that which needs to be nurtured.
