New Moon [14 Virgo 38]
– September 7, 2021 (01:52 GMT+1)
At the time of the New Moon, all is dark. You only see the sliver of the crescent moon a couple of days after the exact moment of the New Moon.
Traditionally, you set your intentions at the time of the New Moon. Then, you make a wish when you first see the crescent Moon in the night sky.
At the exact moment of the New Moon, the Sun & Moon sit side-by-side in the zodiac in earth sign Virgo.
Virgo is the star sign of order & analysis, list-making & strategy, resourcefulness & measured behaviour. It’s linked to work and routine, lifestyle and health, self-care and service to others.
Therefore, this is an excellent New Moon to start a new habit or begin any activity that feeds you, nurtures you, grounds you & strengthens you.
The Uranus Factor
The earth signs are Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn. One planet in particular stands out during this New Moon and that planet is hyper, live-wire Uranus. At 14 degrees Taurus, Uranus is making an exact trine aspect to both the Sun & Moon.
When Uranus is involved, you can expect the unexpected, be ready for the diversion, the swift change of pace. Uranus is the rebel & activist.
If you haven’t found anything to protest about or get frustrated in recent times, you’re not living in the world. It’s hard to settle and continue with your daily routine as the world goes mad around you.
The other planet in Virgo is Mars so use your anger, your irritation to stoke the fires that burn deep within, that urge you to make a difference. You might sign a petition, join a protest, voice your concerns or uphold your beliefs. Uranus is the trigger, the spark that unites the collective.
The Call of the Moon
And yet, the call of this New Moon in Virgo is to continue living your life well, to restore order, calm the mind and not let fear or worry take hold.
A New Moon in a feminine earth sign is the ideal time to put one foot in front of the other, to allow the constancy and beauty of nature to soothe your soul, to be grateful for the rituals and routine of your daily life.
Much nurturing and care is needed now. Start with you, the ones you love, heal self & others, help and be of service, then gently move out into the world.
Happy New Moon
