Happy New Moon in Virgo!
This New Moon in Virgo brings us a fresh burst of energy to help us make clear cut decisions so we can achieve our goals and step into our full potential.
Since April we have endured retrogrades and eclipses that have brought up past wounds, lessons on forgiveness and reasons for us to let go and finally heal. It feels like we have been torn down, rebuilt and torn down again.
This New Moon in Virgo will help give us the needed push or missing piece to finally pull everything together in a lasting way.
We had a series of Eclipses, and Jupiter, Pluto, Neptune, Mercury, Chiron, Saturn and now even Uranus retrogrades affecting us this year. Like a caterpillar before it enters it’s cocoon, we must shed and shed and shed again. A caterpillar doesn’t just shed it’s skin once before it becomes a butterfly… It spends most of its time shedding and rejuvenating itself.
All of this non stop astrological energy has tried to help us shed our old ways so that we too can step into a better future and a new us. It is safe to say, we have had a roller coaster of a year, but there has been purpose to the lessons.
This New Moon is welcoming in the Virgo season. Virgo seasons is about reassessing our lives, taking charge, and making the changes needed so that we can move where we want to go.
Using our Spirit de la Lune Planners, decks and the 4 turnings of the moon we create the Moonlthy Lunar Report for each New Moon. Read on to see what this New Moon in Virgo has in store for you!
New Moon in Virgo
This New Moon joins the sun in Virgo on the 30th of August.
Virgo energy is one of organization, attention to detail, new beginnings and making room for a fresh start. If you have a lot of Virgo in your chart, you might be one to collect stationary or hoard notebooks.
Virgo loves to see an organized plan with all the little details mapped out. This is a great time to get serious about your intentions for the moonth ahead!
Virgo energy has a “back to school” feel to it, where we want to take charge of our lives, prioritize our time and be more efficient.
Allow this New Moon in Virgo to give you the push you need to reevaluate your life, then reorganize it in the way that is needed so you can move forward.
Take charge of your life with this New Moon. Look within to see what is stopping you, then clear it out by the roots so it won’t keep coming back! Virgo energy is all about taking charge of your life.
“Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, and Isis were all considered virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. All great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, and even Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality; needless to say, they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, and never touched.”—Monica Sjoo
You might find yourself doing a deep clean of your house, or a deep cleanse of your aura. Meditate and visualise what your true desire is and ask to see what it is you need to clean up or clear our in order to allow in the new energy that best supports your growth.
Redefine the version of yourself that you are wanting to become, and then clear the room and take the needed steps to embody it.
When the moon is in Virgo, we tend to become critical and obsessed with the details of our lives. It’s a good time to analyze your mindset and where you are putting your energy. What have you overlooked? This New moon tells us to get our shit together, recognize the error of our ways an make commitment to ourselves to move forward in earnest.
This week, Venus trine Saturn on the 1st of September is going to open your heart to new commitments. Mercury trine Uranus helps you stay focused and determined to invite in new ideas and exciting circumstances.
Determination is at an all time high as the Sun and Mars meet to provide direction and purpose into your life. Follow their lead. Intuitively connect with what you know is good for you and cancel out distractions that will work to slow you down. Set intentions this week for clear direction and guidance in your life as you navigate and plan your next steps.
The card pulled for this week is Waning Crescent: Transform, during the last phases of the moon cycle a recalibration takes place. The inward stillness allows all the shifts and energy that moved through you in this Moon cycle or phase of life to being to mold you into a new form. Do not pass over this vital step on your path! If things feel dark, you may be in the pupa stage, this is the stage butterflies and moths change their form. If many things are shifting, you may still be shedding old skin. Caterpillars do not rush the changes and they cannot skip or modify this step to meet their ego’s needs. Allow acceptance to give you patience and feel excitement for what is ahead! Change can be difficult to accept, especially if when it is not your choice. Try to find lessons in the changes you are confronted with and allow your intuition and your instincts to guide you.
The crystal companion for the week ahead is Apatite. Attuned to the Throat Chakra, apatite inspires creativity and self-expression. Attuned to the third-eye, apatite can improve your memory and concentration. It can also help you suppress you physical appetite by helping your mind focus on other things.

The card pulled for this phase is Waxing Crescent: Awareness. This card was pulled for us last month as well! It looks like there is a lot for us to be learning about ourselves and our environment right now! As the moon grows in the sky, your intuition is heightened and your sense of clarity is restored and invigorated. You might begin to receive more messages and see different pathways to choose from. This can become overwhelming at this point in the moon cycle.
As energy picks up, it shifts movements. Remain flexible at this time and open your awareness. You can begin by accepting what you can’t control and keep your focus on the things you can control. Sometimes this might only be a passing mood or moment. Observe your surroundings and your interactions. Have faith in the journey and believe in your vision.

Emotions tend to run high when the Moon is in a water sign, with Neptune in Pisces, conjunct the Moon, and opposite the Sun, we might experience some confusion over what it is we truly want this week. To ensure you aren’t walking blindly or falling into wishful thinking, plan ahead during the First Quarter phase. Use your action plan from the planner so you don’t end up becoming overwhelmed, or stuck with your head in the clouds this week.
Be cautious to not get lost in a place of delusion, or rely on escapism this week. The Virgo energy we are experiencing right now is asking us to clean up our acts, get our act together…and keep it together.
Pisces energy this week is giving us the gentle push forward. Don’t mistake this small subtle push for emotional delusion and get lost in your own thoughts and delay your progress.

Compassion and understanding will help you build stronger connections with those you love.

If you are feeling in a dark place personally, you will need to step outside of yourself and your own situation. When we serve others, we take time and attention off of our own problems and shift our focus towards compassion and love. This cultivates feelings of appreciation and gratitude within ourselves and others we serve.
If you are having a hard time moving forward for yourself, help someone else this week. It will give you time off from your problems, help heighten your perspective, while cultivating a sense of unconditional love.
The Full Moon in Pisces connects you to your higher purpose and the divine. It provides an even deeper connection and look into your intuition. There will be a few moments when you may feel lost and confused, remember you have been through this before. Call upon your personal power instead of neglecting it. The answers lie within you.
The Harvest Moon asks us to reflect on our journey and find all the paths of gratitude. In the cycle of creation, this is the opportune time to give back to keep the abundant energy cycling through your life.
