The New Moon is a time of initiations and beginnings when we are given a chance to make a fresh start, let go and leave the past behind and plant the seeds of our next phase with clarity and intention. This New Moon happens in methodical, kind and practical Virgo on 17 September 2020.

What is the energy and focus for a Virgo New Moon?

Virgo energy is very organised, precise and orderly. It is ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication making this a fantastic time for you to write out budgets, get organised in your home and life and generally get things under control and in order. Naturally neat and tidy, Virgo asks us to be mindful of our environment, both at a personal level in the home, and to care for the environment of the whole planet too. Wasteful or messy behavior is a no- no.

Purity and being clean is a focus – especially in the food we eat. Healthy natural foods which are good for both the body and mind are represented by Virgo – just don’t take clean eating to extremes as we all need to splurge every now and then. Virgo rules the habits we have be they good or bad, so the Virgo New Moon is the right time for starting new, healthy and positive behaviors. Virgo also inspires us to make wise choices around self-care and move away from those elements in our lives which are negative or toxic.

Natural Zodiac Zone

Virgo is the ruler of the Sixth House in the Natural Zodiac. The Sixth House rules your day to day routine, your working life and the people you work with, your health and the professionals like doctors who treat you, your pets, and also where you serve and offer service to others or your community.

The key issue about this house is that it is all the things you do each day which add up to your quality of life and health. Good habits with a balance of activity and rest, stimulation and relaxation and a balanced diet will bring you good health and an enjoyable quality of life. Bad habits or a badly unbalanced life will result in poor health, stress and depression long term. Opening your awareness to self-care and the benefits it can bring are a gift of this house.

Typical Virgo New Moon Events

1 Getting the urge to tidy up your home, your finances, or your life!

2 Starting a healthy eating plan to give you more energy and improve your moods and stress levels.

3 Starting a new daily routine which allows you time for personal self-care and mental relaxation.

4 Becoming more environmentally conscious and committing to doing something green
