#179 The Astrology Forecast for the New Moon in Virgo


The themes this week are…

1. Practicality

2. Organization

3. Boldness

The astrology forecast for the New Moon in Virgo brings two of the same three themes from last week. Practicality and organization are highlighted due to the heavy influence of Earth placements with the New Moon in Virgo, Mercury ending its retrograde transit through Virgo, as well as Jupiter and Uranus in Taurus.

Boldness replaces kindness as a theme because of the prevalence of the transits of the Moon and Venus through Leo.

Put it all together and the focus is to open your heart and express yourself through the tangible nature of your daily routine and work.

If you are curious how these, or any other transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.

It is my purpose to help you understand who you are, so you can accept, appreciate, and love the divine, unique miracle that is you.

Reflect on past experiences for insight but don’t overanalyze.

The Moon in Gemini Sextile Mercury in Leo

The New Moon in Virgo

Virgo is the Mutable Earth Sign symbolized by the Virgin and ruled by Mercury, the planet of the conscious mind and communication.

The Four Cornerstones of Virgo are:

1. Details

2. Health

3. Diet

4. Service

Ask yourself, what you are putting into your body and how is it affecting your mind? What are you putting into your mind and how is it affecting your body? What are you doing from the moment you wake up, to the moment you go to sleep?

During the New Moon in Virgo set your intentions to ground into the details, improve upon your health, and create a diet that fuels your mind, so you can be of greater service to those around you.

Virgo rules the intestines, the organ that eliminates waste from the body.

During the New Moon in Virgo set your intentions to eliminate any part of your life that is creating stagnation, or dragging you down, so you can be more efficient in your daily routine.

FRIDAY, September 15

The Sun in Cancer Sextile Uranus in Taurus

Mercury Direct in Virgo

As Mercury ends its retrograde through analytical Virgo, returning to direct motion, mental clarity starts to return regarding routine tasks, productivity, and communication.

The brain fog lifts, and plans put on hold while Mercury moved backwards can now move forward again. However, remnants of the retrograde may linger during Mercury’s “post-shadow” as it realigns to its normal velocity. So continue to allow some flexibility.

Use the clearer skies to integrate lessons learned during the retrograde rather than rushing into brand new initiatives.

Anchor ideas into practical application.

Fine-tune methods and skills, but defer launching major projects just yet.

Tie up loose ends on long standing issues. In conversations, practice active listening and patience as you articulate your thoughts.

Mercury stationing direct marks a threshold to utilize its sharp Virgoan discernment blended with empathy. By following a steady pace, you assimilate retrograde insights to create meaningful order and understanding.

When: August 3 - Mercury Enters Its Retrograde Shadow in Virgo 8°0’

August 23 - Mercury Retrograde in Virgo 21°51’

September 15 - Mercury Direct in Virgo 8°0’

September 29 - Mercury Exits its Retrograde Shadow in Virgo 21°51’

Mercury is at 8° in Virgo from September 11 – 19. Take is slow these days as we begin to ramp back up to Mercury’s normal transit speed.

Give yourself plenty of time to get to where you need to go and refrain from adding any new projects to your plate. Instead tie up loose ends and continue to organize your health and life in a way that provides efficiency in your daily flow.

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Aries, Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius.


The Sun in Virgo Trine Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

The flowing trine aspect between the Sun in orderly Virgo and Uranus retrograde in grounded Taurus brings opportunities for constructive change to health routines, work projects and use of technology.

As your Sun shines its light on useful improvements, forming a harmony with Uranus’ ingenuity, you gain breakthroughs when you blend diligent effort with timely innovation.

Take care of necessities but allow space to experiment.

Research alternative methods but avoid extreme deviation from time-tested fundamentals.

Inventive ideas should aim at increased stability in the future, not just short-term thrills.

Embrace change that helps streamline systems and progressive visions for growth, while still building on a strong foundation. With patience and willingness to learn new tricks, you synthesize the best of tradition and change. Your path ahead appears brighter when you use this innovative yet pragmatic energy wisely.

When: September 13 - 16

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius.

SATURDAY, September 16

The Moon in Cancer Sextile Mars in Virgo

Venus in Leo Square Jupiter Retrograde in Taurus

The tense square between expressive Venus in Leo and expansive Jupiter retrograde in Taurus can create conflicting desires between dramatic self-display versus building solid foundations.

Flamboyant Venus craves creativity and passion, while prudent Jupiter retrograde favors patience and practicality.

You may feel caught between showy extravagance and wise moderation.

To balance these energies, develop skills and talents with humble dedication, not to gain acclaim but for craftsmanship itself.

In relationships, provide reassurance through steadfast devotion, not grandiose gestures. Withstand urges for risky sensual overindulgence which may destabilize bonds built over time.

The path forward emerges when you blend colorful creative vision with pragmatic long-term planning. Let virtues of loyalty and generosity eclipse ego.

By working skillfully through this tension of style versus substance, you uncover rewards of lasting self-confidence.

When: September 14 – 18

This is the third time since June that Venus in Leo has squared off with Jupiter in Taurus. This alignment occurred most strongly on June 8 – 12 when Venus in Leo Squared Jupiter in Taurus, while both planets were direct.

It occurred for the second time between August 20 – 24 when Venus was Retrograde in Leo and formed a Square with Jupiter in Taurus, while Jupiter was direct.

Now Jupiter is retrograde and Venus is direct. Think back to these dates and reflect upon what was occurring in your close personal relationships. Think of this period as an opportunity to close the chapter on which began in June, persisted in August, and comes to fruition now.

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.

SUNDAY, September 17

The Moon in Cancer Sextile Uranus in Taurus

The Moon in Libra Opposite the North Node Retrograde in Aries

The Moon's transit through diplomatic Libra forming an opposition to the North Node in individualistic Aries highlights tension between pleasing others versus asserting your own needs.

You feel inclined to maintain harmony and keep the peace as the Moon merges with Libra's urge for balance.

However, this conflicts with the North Node's push towards confidence and independence. Try to integrate both sides - be tactful yet honest about your feelings, cooperative without compromising values.

In relationships, offer advice sensitively rather than prescribing solutions. Develop self-reliance and courage to speak up, but with consideration of different perspectives. Through this integration of graciousness and conviction, you find your calling. Let thoughtfulness guide bold action.

By working skillfully with this opposition, you discover your authority in fostering unity, not division.

When: 10am – 4pm PDT

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Cancer and Capricorn.
