New Moon in Critical Virgo
We have a New Moon in Virgo on Saturday, August 27, 2022 @ 4:17 a.m. EDT. Virgo New Moons are all about employment, holistic endeavors, perfectionism, health, organization, textiles and environmental issues. This Moon is perfect for starting diet and health regimens, organizing, and setting up sacred space for yourself. This is a perfect time to reorganize your work or home space, seek new employment, get a checkup, commit to better health habits, start writing a book, and have keen attention to detail. It's all about healing but this also will make us more critical than usual so remember, you’re not perfect, and neither is anyone else.
Virgo energy gives us the drive, and determination to do, and be better. We will feel more inclined to do things, and have motivation to see them through; especially when it comes to decluttering, clean up, and organization. Virgo hates a mess and they also dislike uncleanliness, nasty habits and dysfunction so clean up is key here, as we begin to progress forward with determination. Virgos like to ground themselves too. So this energy will help with that, especially since Virgo season is also retrograde season too.
Mercury is in Virgo as of August 4th and moves into Libra on August 25th but then goes retrograde on September 1st, 2022 in Libra. Then it moves on September 23rd into Virgo (dignified) It’s September 9th in Modern Astrology. With Mercury retrograding in Libra it will be all about rewriting contracts, cleaning up business affairs, and taking a closer look at your domestic life and partnerships. Once it moves into Virgo the retrograde energy will get more intense.
Souls born in the Sun sign of Virgo will be perfectionist, critical thinkers, hard workers, and have a gift for keeping things in order like a fine running machine. All earth signs will feel this Virgo New Moon the most but you all know the drill....lol. Souls born with placements in Virgo of Sun, Moon, rising, Dragon head/tail always feel this shift the most. Where ever Virgo is placed by house and sign, it will motivate you onto action of that house, and make changes for the better.
Magickal Folk: This is the perfect Moon for spell work for commitment to better health and dietary changes. Spells for seeking new employment, writing, and intellectual pursuits are all blessed under these stars. Healing rituals for ailments of the intestines, and nervous system work very well at this time.
The next few weeks, the Virgo energy will make many of us somewhat critical both of ourselves and others. We must try to use Virgos energy to improve our own wellbeing, and organize so we have a better working environment. Mental clarity will be key and as we move into Mercury retrograde in Libra/Virgo from August 31 – October 10, 2022.
This energy brings the past back to life but it is also a time to watch the road as chain reaction accidents, travel delays, and miscommunication are always possible. Speak clearly, and reiterate and repeat everything to get your point across.
Have a safe, happy and healthy new Virgo Moon.
