On September 25, we have a new Moon in Virgo, conjunct with a powerful Mercury retrograde and aspected by Jupiter and Neptune. What does this mean?
What is the Moon? It is our mother, emotions, feelings, water, and how we relate to each other. It’s our consciousness and intuition.
What is a new moon? It is about new beginnings and creating something new for your future. This is a great time to meditate and turn within. Beginnings are about a new cycle, but an old cycle needs to come to an end for a new one to start. It’s a time to think about what we desire and set intentions to manifest those desires. The new Moon is also called a dark Moon, meaning you have the ability to see in the dark with intuition; the mind is illuminated to find its way out of what has been bothering you. It is recommended to turn inward and meditate.
What is Mercury? Mercury is the prince of the zodiac, meaning he is the messenger, the communicator. Wherever Mercury is in our charts indicates how and why we communicate the way we do. Some of us communicate analytically, and others, intuitively. Mercury is sales, writing, siblings, our thinking process, and travels.
What is Virgo ? This is a mutable earth sign, meaning there’s a desire for a practical approach to change and adaptability. Virgo is concerned with precision and perfection. Virgo is the natural 6th house of the zodiac, indicative of service, healing, diet, nutrition. It’s also the house of open enemies (enemies we know about) and litigation, where we fight our battles.
Putting this all together…the new Moon in Virgo will be conjunct a powerful Mercury retrograde, aspected by Jupiter. This can make you feel you need not only to purge (aka “fall” cleaning) things in your home, but can also redirect you to purge your thoughts and clean your mind, which is a far harder task than anything tangible. This will require you to step outside of your comfort zone, but will help you feel more productive in how you are approaching the time towards the end of the year. Use the energy of the new Moon to manifest your thoughts and desires and redirect your intentions so they align with the Universe ✨💫🌙
