New Moon in Virgo – September 2021
We open the week with Mercury trine Saturn on Sept 4, which supports practical thinking, planning, decision-making, signing contracts, taking care of business and organization. Saturn creates things that last – and with Mercury in relationship-oriented Libra, this feels especially good for making agreements and other solid communications. Also, this is a perfect day to purchase a new computer or iPhone, as Mercury Retrograde begins on Sept 27, and you can get yourself set up now or over the long holiday weekend.
Venus squares Pluto on Sept 5, so be mindful to avoid power struggles in relationships, as manipulation and control issues are ripe for activation (or obsession, equally toxic). Venus rules your value and Pluto is covert, thereby giving your partner the position to potentially affect the way you feel about your Self – but only if you’ve given your power away to begin with. That is a major caveat… and anything that comes up has likely been simmering under the surface for a while. This would be a good time to have a real conversation about any dysfunctional dynamics that are calling for attention.
We have a glorious New Moon in Virgo on Sept 6 @ 5:52pm PDT that is an extra auspicious time for new beginnings. Practical Virgo rules holistic health, wellness and service – systems and order, details and discernment (what’s useful and what’s not). Virgo loves routines and rituals and regards them as sacred, whether list-making, exercise, cooking (food as medicine), etc – get clear about what what feeds You. This is a great time to begin a new health or wellness regimen, to do something that will enhance your life and well being. It’s a time of renewal.
Uranus (The Great Awakener) is making an exact trine to the New Moon, indicating a change – time to do something different or a twist appears that opens a new door for you. Think futuristic or out of left field – it will be stimulating and move you into new territory if it’s in your orbit. This can also indicate a mindset shift in which you’re led to something fresh that allows you to create a life more aligned with your Authentic Self. This goes to harmonious evolution without all the heavy lifting…
There are two aspects occurring on the New Moon that are highly beneficial. First we have Mars trine Pluto, that creates a surge of energy for making things happen, and in earth signs, they are practical, tangible creations. You can climb mountains with Mars-Pluto, as it is transcends obstacles, step by step. This gives you stamina – and on a New Moon, an amazing launch pad to start anything that you want to succeed.
Next aspect on the New Moon: Venus trine Jupiter, which is the lucky combo of love, opportunities, resources, $$, attention, beauty, creativity, style, relationships – all the heart-centered, value-based qualities that you could desire packed into this duo. This is beautiful energy for healing, for making amends and for all connections (which we need!). What the world needs now is love sweet love…
Although the New Moon is on the evening of Sept 6, the energy continues on Sept 7 so you can take actions to begin then if the holiday keeps you from doing so (in the U.S.). After so much stress and strife, this is an unusually opportune time for focusing your efforts on special that will activate a new path for you. Please don’t squander the opportunity. Whether it’s major or small and personal, choose something meaningful and do it joyfully. This is a gift!
As always, the global chaos (transformation) continues, but we have the opportunity for a golden week of transcendent actions and consciousness that begins our journey through the final four months of 2021. Let’s make the most of this precious opportunity, which doesn’t happen often. Please be thoughtful about what you can bring into your life now – and how it can benefit others.
Also, this New Moon in Virgo falls on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year – a rare event for both to occur on the same day. Extra special.
As always, I am grateful for your presence on our journey together. xo
