Starry-eyed and heart fluttering, I’m thrilled to announce that the New Moon will move into Virgo on the 15th of September!
But what does this celestial ballet mean for us? What are New Moon movements, and why should we care?
New Moon movements are essentially the dance of the Moon as it orbits our planet. These lunar phases influence the ebb and flow of our emotional tides, just as the Moon controls the sea’s tides on Earth. It’s a time of beginnings, of planting seeds, of setting intentions. Quite magical, isn’t it?
Now, you may ask, Why does it matter which zodiac sign the New Moon is in?
Well, every zodiac sign is associated with certain qualities, traits, and energies. When the New Moon moves into a specific sign, it brings an infusion of that sign’s energy into our lives. A New Moon in Virgo, for instance, may bring opportunities for practicality, organization, and an analytical approach.
Are you ready for the real twist? Some zodiac signs will be more impacted by this movement than others.
How many, you ask? Which ones? Well, that’s the suspense I’m going to hold onto for a bit longer. Are you feeling the anticipation? Good, because it’s about to get even more intriguing!
The Virgo new moon’s arrival
As the moon’s silver glow dims into a sliver on the 15th of September, it moves into the constellation of Virgo. With my own Virgo sun sign, I can almost feel the extra pull from the cosmos. It’s a time of precision, detail and introspection, and it will affect us all in different ways.
Impact on Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leos, known for their incredible radiance and bold energy, are likely to experience a shift in their mindset when the Virgo New Moon comes around. Rather than diving headfirst into whatever comes their way, Leos may find themselves stepping back and observing their world with a more analytical gaze.
This isn’t a sudden change in personality, but rather an adaptation to the detail-oriented Virgo energy.
This introspective period can be spent analyzing your actions, refining your goals, and indulging in self-care routines, much like famous Leo, Jennifer Lopez, who has always been known for her meticulous devotion to her craft and her lifestyle.
This is a unique opportunity for Leos to shine the light of their introspection on things less-often seen. So, don’t be startled by this shift. Instead, embrace it, just like Lopez does.
In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision. – Dalai Lama
Impact on Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libras, known as the scales of the zodiac, tend to naturally be in favor of balance and harmony, particularly in relationships. As a result, the Virgo New Moon might initially induce a sense of imbalance in Libras. Yet, the practical and analytical energies of Virgo can be an asset during this time.
Use this period to critically analyze your relationships and determine if they genuinely serve your best interests. It’s a process that requires courage – it’s not always easy to end relationships that no longer serve you. Yet, through it all, you might find healthier connections waiting for you, as I did in my early twenties.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. – Steve Jobs, a fellow Libra who knew the value of balance and refinement.
Impact on Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios – the embodiment of depth, intensity, and mystery, might initially feel out of their comfort zone during the Virgo New Moon phase. The transparent, meticulous, and detail-oriented Virgo energy can feel intimidating, especially for Scorpions who prefer their secrecy.
However, this is the perfect opportunity to review the aspects of your life that you usually keep under wraps. The Virgo New Moon invites you to throw open the curtains and take a good look at the things you’ve kept hidden from view. Don’t dread what you might find. Instead, use it as a path to self-realization and growth.
I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet. – Mahatma Gandhi, a celebrated Scorpio who always stood for truth and non-violence
Welcome the celestial changes
Regardless of our signs, the cosmos influence us in unique ways. The Virgo New Moon is an invitation to introspect and refine. Embrace this period of celestial change as part of your journey of self-discovery. And remember, the stars are not just above us, they are within us too.
