Breathe deeply into the new beginnings of the Virgo New Moon as you light a eucalyptus candle under the darkness shrouded in divine knowing. You are encouraged to look with radical honesty at what you can do to plan, strategize and communicate your intentions into existence. Everything is possible, and as you lean into your divine gifts, you will see how intensely you are the creator of your destiny.
Thursday, September 14, brings the New Moon in Virgo. New Moons are a time to embrace this earth sign’s natural, detailed focus and healing energy. Take what you’ve learned from the past and make it the foundation for the future you dream of.
Mercury, the planet of communication, is set to station directly tomorrow, September 15, in Virgo, as it ends its three-week period of reflection, which adds to the significance of this lunation. While the New Moon in Virgo is opposite retrograde Neptune in Pisces, you can embrace a greater sense of reflection and spirituality as you can see how to use any past challenges or heartbreak for the brand-new beginning you desire.
The symbol for this lunation at twenty-one degrees of Virgo is a dark river and distant bell echoing the future, beckoning you to take action while you must learn to work in the darkness. This lesson can help you to find your faith and your divine trust.
They provide stepping stones that allow you to manifest whatever you wish. As the New Moon in Virgo occurs on the heels of Mercury’s retrograde ending, it’s interesting how the guardian angel of Jupiter, Chavakiah, represents this lunation. Chavakiah brings a greater emphasis on hope, forgiveness and reconciliation, helping you restore your belief in the future, which will be far more impressive than anything that has occurred in the past.
Your rituals are best practiced in darkness as the New Moon in Virgo is exact at 9:39 pm EST, adding strength and power to your manifestations. To honor the energy of Virgo more deeply today, as both the Sun and Moon are within this zodiac sign, consider adding in the essential oils and herbal properties of chamomile, saffron, lavender, patchouli, eucalyptus and bergamot along with sapphire, opal or citrine to divinely embody the opportunity for profound new beginnings under this lunation.
