New Virgo Moon – August 30

The Astrology

There’s a New Moon in Virgo today.


This new Virgo Moon represents something new emerging after a period of gestation.

Before anything can BECOME there must be some kind of thought. You get ideas about things. Then you think about an idea until your thoughts gather enough momentum to create an intention. An  intention needs more thought before it can grow into a plan. This intention stage may include some very small actions, for example, research, but it can also be a time to just daydream about the intention. Daydreaming is a natural, enjoyable, fun activity; it’s also a valuable tool and resource during the planning phase of anything that’s to BECOME something. Always give yourself time to daydream.

Once your thoughts have gathered enough momentum to have become a plan you want to take action on, you’ve entered a new phase in the process of turning thoughts into things. Something new has emerged in you.

What is it? What have you been thinking about doing or changing? What direction are you being called toward?

You might not know in this red hot minute what will happen when you take the next step. There are always unforeseen and unexpected developments to be managed. And that’s the key point: Take the next reasonable step, and then the next, and so on. You don’t expect a seedling to produce fruit or flowers immediately. Whatever the new thing is that has emerged within you needs time to mature. But do take the next reasonable step.

Making Changes – August 28

The Astrology

Sun, Venus, and Mars in Virgo are in a cooperative trine with Uranus in Venus-ruled Taurus.


Changing a habit requires a lot more than willpower. In fact, change is short lived if there is mental resistance to it. Outside pressure from well-meaning or authoritarian people or from society can initiate change, but that kind of pressure will meet with resistance in time, as well. You may want or need to change your daily routines or health-related habits, and with Uranus in Venus-ruled Taurus since March, you may have had a breakthrough around something that has seemed set and resistant. But, then, you couldn’t muster the energy to follow through with it. From now through September 22, you have cooperation and assistance from the Sun, Venus, and Mars in Virgo to free yourself from self-imposed limitations (habits) and routines.

Don’t be upset with yourself and don’t force yourself to change if you still feel resistance. This is also a good time to gather data and sort out your feelings and motives. Do some research. Do a test run (try change out for a day or two) before you commit. The Universe is benevolent. There will be other times, and you’ll know when the time is right for you. In the meantime, you’ll have more facts and more knowledge about what you need and want for yourself.
