I always feel mixed feelings about letting the summer go (one more day!) , while being excited by the focus this time of year seems to bring. Time to get er done!
The Sun in Virgo can be demanding and perfectionist, with a focus on being organized and together. Under a Virgo New Moon we may find ourselves seeking purification or flawlessness - with a strong need to be right. Virgo’s critical nature comes from that desire to get things exactly so. This energy can increase efficiency, yet also makes us a bit hard on ourself and others in the process. Try to give people a little slack (including yourself!) Virgo’s tendency to try to be all things to everyone can take its toll!
Theres added tension in the air right now (Mars Uranus) that can trigger restlessness and impatience and set us off against each other. We all need to relax and trust that everything will work out. Try to give others a little breathing room even as you focus in on what needs to be done . That doesn’t mean doing nothing. It’s about getting the balance right.
What’s that saying about the strings of a lute ? - too tight and they snap - too loose and they produce no sound. (interesting that it refers to a lute, it’s obviously a very old saying).
My point is - Virgo is the tightener- Neptune sitting opposite is a loosener. The more dreamy influence can help soften the harsh glare of Virgos perfectionism by increasing our empathy and compassion for others. Everyone is just trying to do their best!
It’s been a bit of a slog over the summer with many planets retrograde. As they all begun to gain forward momentum - we can too!
A New Moon is the perfect time to get back in the saddle and plant seeds of intention; time to focus on what we would like to see unfold over the next lunar cycle. Enjoy how the Sun and Moon combination stimulates your creativity, and Neptune’s energy helps you to dive into your imagination and use it to access your dreams. If you can dream it - it can happen!
The air right now is pregnant with possibility! Use this magic moment of intention to vision your way forward and initiate new ideas. You know you want to!
