New Moons are about planting new seeds of intention, a time for fresh ideas and a new start, and this beautiful New Moon is no different! The Virgo New Moon energy will have us getting organised, practical, structured and focused – an energy that we undoubtedly and desperately need after the mid-year craziness. It’s a time of focus and completion of the tasks, to-do’s and chores – you know, the ones that have been piling up recently. We will tend to daily life, schedules and routines and truly get things moving forward at a steady pace, and the New Moon will show you exactly where in your life that little bit of extra energy is needed. Allowing this energy will bring you serious improvements in your life, so don’t hold back, get to work!
The powerful Virgo New Moon is aligned with Mars and in a positive aspect to Uranus in Taurus – and this simply means energy and drive – especially towards completing those old projects, or maybe a brand new one?! You’ll know, it’ll just flow through you. The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars will all be hanging out in Virgo along with the New Moon so this Virgo energy will be INTENSE – and what I mean by Virgo energy is this:
Earthy, practical, productive, hard-working and grounded. A focus on the tangible and a focus on the details. Constant and quick moving energy that is always looking for its next project to complete.
And as if it’s not already the most helpful energy in the most perfect timing – this New Moon and intense Virgo energy will bring a focus on our health and well-being. You will be wanting to eat healthier, exercise regularly, and check in with your mental, spiritual, and emotional health.
This time is a blessing – it is the Universe giving you the opportunity, energy and guidance to do what you need to do after going through such an intense eclipse and retrograde period. It’s your time to get back on track and it’s your time to realise just how much you can do with this incredible life of yours.
YOUR PERFECT VIRGO NEW MOON RITUAL
What is so magical about the New Moon is its power to free our imagination from any material or mental limits – and you’ve probably felt this and gotten glimpses of what is possible in your life, knowing with all of your being that it is possible and forgetting about any of the limits you felt trapped by previously.
Use this to your advantage, create the space to tune into your body and intuition to sense out what it is we you truly yearning for – and then pass this yearning on to the Moon and it’s powerful manifesting abilities.
It’s a time to really tune into your ‘gut’ instincts, to let go of what you cannot change (and blocking inspiration) and open up to and focus in on what you can do to grow. This is a time to bring together your intuition and discipline like no other time before.
This is a truly magical ritual, have fun!
WHAT YOU NEED: Candle, paper & pen, Clear Quartz crystal, incense
Prepare your sacred space with your crystal, paper, pen and candle in front of you and burn your incense.
Take a few moments to connect to your breath. Sit yourself in a relaxed position with your palms facing upwards to receive. Focus in on the scent of your incense and notice how it affects your body and mind.
Light your candle – as if the fire is a symbol of your passion and purpose; and focus your gaze upon the flame. As the light flickers tune into your heart centre or gut (wherever you feel your intuition) and allow yourself to know what is needing to be released, what is needing to be burned and cleared away; maybe it’s negative self-talk, bad habits, limiting belies, relationships – whatever your soul is communicating to you.
Bring your focus in on the candle and take nine deep breaths slowly, knowing that nine symbolises completion and clearing.
Now, lets call upon Virgos talent for organisation as you envision your dreams and what you desire to call into your life.
Write down what your soul is calling in for your life – what you are seeking to manifest.
Hold your quartz crystal against your third eye (on your forehead, just above the space between your eyebrows) and close your eyes. Imagine the crystal shooting a beautiful light into the sky, reaching out into the cosmos. This light is what is connecting you with your deepest desires and intentions and bringing them closer and closer.
In your hands, hold your crystal at a safe distance from the flame, close enough to feel the gentle warmth. Now place your crystal against your heart, feel the vibrations of transformation radiating throughout your being.
Look back at your notes – what you want to release and what you want to manifest and in true Virgo fashion, start to write down your action plan on how you are going to release these things, and how you are going to manifest these things. Allow whatever wants to come out to come out, you are organising your visions so that they may blossom into fruition.
Once you are done organising and taking notes, close your eyes and speak gentle words of gratitude for your guidance and protection.
Put out your candle safely.
And lastly, for the next 30 days – be grateful. Sit down with your journal each morning and write out all that you are grateful for in that very moment. Gratitude attracts desires!

LIBRA & LIBRA RISING
Before setting your intention this month, take some time and space to connect with your inner wisdom.
What’s your soul truly yearning for?
It’s a good time to clear your mind, for all manner of healing and therapy. Your inner world runs deep and your ability to explore your subconscious is heightened at this time. But, it’s not always easy to tell which ideas come from within and which we have internalised from the world around us, so spend some time alone truly going into the depths of your soul and replenishing yourself.
SCORPIO & SCORPIO RISING

You’ll find yourself letting your guard down that little bit more during this time; being more honest and trusting with friends and those around you.

So have fun!
SAGITTARIUS & SAGITTARIUS RISING
Fear or love, Sagittarius, with career decisions, which will you choose? It’s time to call yourself out if you’re using ‘practical’ or ‘realistic’ concerns simply as convenient excuses to avoid committing to the work you have been called to do.
You might be feeling like your energy is taking you in a million directions – use this Virgo energy and prioritise, plan, do. Stay focused on where it is you want to go and what it is you want to achieve.
This energy calls for the possibility of a career advancement, career change or a new start on a new career path.

Intensity is the theme of this New Moon for you – in all facets of life.

This could mean letting go of things or simply tweaking them to make them more cohesive with your new self.
PISCES & PISCES RISING
Take a look around at your relationships to make sure they are providing you with growth in some way Pisces. This is a time of improving your existing relationships where possible, but if there are people that don’t measure up, well, see-ya!
