We are graced with a divine gift as the New Moon in Virgo falls on Labor Day, urging us all to take a moment to relax, catch our breath, and to integrate the past few intense Full Moons in Aquarius that tore us apart so to release so much of what no longer served us. Now, its time to put a focus on what does, on how to rebuild ourselves with a focus on what is healthy, how we can better take care of our body, mind, and souls, and most importantly, how we can better serve those around us.
The New Moon in Virgo puts a major focus on our health, as health-conscious Virgo wants nothing more than to nourish and serve our highest good. We must remember that while we are a spiritual being, we still have to nourish the vessel that houses our soul.
Virgo season is the perfect time to focus on those minor details, our routine, and daily habits that contribute to our health and lifestyle. With a Virgo New Moon, we can really amplify those intentions so to help empower setting new goals that correlate with a healthier way of living.
When the Moon is in Virgo, she is hyper focused on not only our health, but also our daily lives – our routines and how we approach our long-term goals with the smallest of details in what we do every day. This is the perfect time to really consider how you are doing your part, day by day, so to reach that 5-year plan and to make your dreams to come true. Like many, you more than likely set intentions during the New Moon in Leo last month while it coincided with Lion’s Gate, and so now you are given a microscope to see if you are on track, and if not, then what intentions you need to set this month so to ensure you are tending to your dreams accordingly.
It is important to focus on grounding your energy during the time of the New Moon, both leading up to it and also after. The reason being is that our thoughts can get away from us – we can be anxiety ridden, in thinking too far into the future, stressing over the minor details, and also worrying about things that don’t really play that big of a part, but nonetheless, the anxiety is there. Take your time to consider why those thoughts are there – what wounds or insecurities are being triggered? With a more focused, balanced, and grounded mind, and directed at what fuels us, we can better understand how to lay to rest those anxiety ridden thoughts and focus on what fuels us.
This New Moon is vital in getting our heads clear and in the game, as later in the month before the next New Moon which will be in Libra, is when Mercury joins the other planets in retrograde and starts its chaotic journey in Libra as well, bringing up all things in our lives that are imbalanced, primarily within our personal relationships, romantic life, and artistic pursuits.
The New Moon in Virgo is a time on integrating the past work we have done, in being grounded within our bodies, and to focus more clearly with where our soul is leading us.

The New Moon ushers in new energy, allowing you to get a better focus on your goals as well as the motivation to get them going. You feel that now the time is ripe to start a new venture or to finally act upon a long-standing goal you have been thinking constantly about. All signs point to yes, Aries, get the ball rolling and act – get what you want and make those dreams of yours come true.
Are you ready for new beginnings, Taurus? You feel so drawn to something that makes you believe in magick and all of the wonderful dreams that come with it. You feel it in your heart, your soul, and your mind that this is the right avenue for you. While you are one to plan a goal out meticulously, you feel the urge to just leap into this blindly. Throw some caution at the wind and take your time, know where you are going to land before you take that leap.
Everything is coming together so nicely. You feel amazing with the work you have done, satisfied with how your efforts are starting to show up in positive results and that you are exactly where you need to be. Things just couldn’t be better. Take a little time to pat yourself on the back and celebrate your success. While you are in the midst of making some big things happen, you can take a moment for yourself so to catch your breath and marvel at the amazing work you have done so far. Expansion is coming and with the attitude of gratitude, you will make it even bigger than anticipated.
You are starting to see all of the results from your hard efforts pay off and you haven’t felt so good in such a long time. What’s even better is that now you can sit back and enjoy it all. Take a pause, Cancer, and know that you have done well. You feel good about yourself and everything that you have went through in the past – all of the hard work, the trials, tribulations, and everything in between now makes sense. Good things are going to continue to come through as well as you have only chipped at the top of the iceberg that are your blessings and rewards.
Your dreams may be rather intense leading up to the New Moon, full of symbolism and even premonitions of what is to come. You might be thinking this is all wishful thinking, or perhaps its your greatest fears and doubts. Whatever the case, it is important to know that while these could be good or bad, these are results of your subconscious processing much of your past, your present, and how things are leading into the future, and so if you want those good things to come true, then you need to give your future goals and plans good energy. This is also a time of spiritual exploration, in focusing on your intentions, manifestation work, and any other spiritual work you have been doing. Take time for yourself, and cleanse, charge, and take good care of your spirit.
Trust is a big thing, and you do not give it easily to others, and so when you feel that you have been manipulated, lied to, or that you gave your trust to the wrong person, you take it rather personally and may even beat yourself up for it. You see the potential in everyone, even those who don’t see it in themselves, and so this experience might have you feeling a bit jaded. It is important to remember that now you have seen the full picture, and can see someone, or a situation for what it is, you now know how to proceed so to avoid any further pain or succumbing to ill intentions. The New Moon may give you a temporary phase of peace as you focus on your next move.
You feel incredibly in touch and in tune with your spiritual, creative, and romantic side. The right song puts you in your feelings, you are able to pick up so many thoughts and feelings from a painting, and you feel alive when experiencing intimacy with the one(s) you love the most. Enjoy these feelings Libra and soak them up. Express what’s in your heart. Get into your own artistic bubble and create what’s in your soul. You may also be sought after by someone who is still in the learning stages of something you are experienced with for advice – listen to them and offer what you can.
You are beyond excited about the new energy entering your life. You can feel a new cycle is presenting itself and you have fought so hard to get here. So many new ideas are swirling around in your head as well, as you are eager to take on these new experiences and finally have a strong foundation where you can create from a place of abundance that is much larger than what you have experienced in the recent past. This is the perfect time to act upon an idea, to make a dream come true, or to put good energy into a new venture. Remember, the attitude of gratitude will only attract even more experiences and situations to be grateful for, so push that energy into your focus.
You feel content, like everything is as it should be and are expecting even better things to present themselves into your life. You might be falling head over heels for someone special, starting a new venture with a group of friends or coworkers you are closely connected to, or your home life is expanding and feels more enjoyable than it has in a long time. Whatever the case, this is a time of creating new memories, creating new foundations, and starting things that you are going to carry into the future which you will look back upon fondly. This is an incredibly inspiring time for you, so soak it up as much as you can.
You are integrating much of the lessons you had learn in the past and focusing on how you can apply them to your present and future. You have grown so much, and you feel that, however, you might also be reminiscing too much on the past, feeling that things were much easier then and wish you could rewind so to go back to that place. You cannot make your life any easier if you remain stuck in the past, Capricorn, but you can learn from it. You might be connecting with someone whom you had parted ways with not long ago, perhaps a childhood friend, an old flame, or someone who had greatly impacted your life in some way or another – whatever their position in their life, their influence is going to greatly inspire you to focus on the future once more.
You are going to experience a small taste of what is to come in terms of a dream coming true/manifestation taking form. Something that you have been waiting so long for is starting to make its way into your life, and it may have caused you to reach far out of your comfort zone, much further than you have in the past, and it may even call upon you to continue to do so, as this new experience – what you have been wanting for so long – requires you to step into a completely new cycle and to reinvent yourself entirely. Nonetheless, you are inspired and the more you align with it, the quicker it continues to take form.
All eyes are on you as you share your passion in what you love doing. Your passionate energy is magnetic and hard to miss. You naturally draw others in when you are comfortably in your bubble, working away and creating things that fuel your soul. You may receive opportunities or invitations from others so to expand on what you love doing, or something similar is going to come along and offer you a step up, so to push yourself further out there. You are admired, desired, and looked at with great respect and adoration from others during the New Moon. Flaunt your stuff, Pisces, and continue to put yourself out there.
