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.

Dream Big: August 11-12 Forecast

The Astrology

The Moon in Capricorn will meet up with Saturn in its own sign August 11-12. The Moon in Saturn’s home responds to Saturn’s orderly regimen and is sensitive to Uranus’ (in Taurus) encouragment toward personal freedom and self-direction. With the Moon, Saturn, and Uranus in the earth signs Taurus and Capricorn, down to earth, practical, reliable, and conservative qualities are emphasized. The Sun, always the creative life force, is assisted by Venus. Venus in the Sun’s home attracts whatever is wanted while Mars is empowered by the Leo Sun and directing its creative, passionate energy. The Leo planets and Capricorn planets are not inclined toward each other, so the fiery energy is not in sync with the earthy energy. The fire energy is dominate through August 21, when the Sun joins Venus, and Mars in Virgo, an earth sign.

The Vibe “DREAM BIG”

You may feel inspired to design and/or create something that’s quite different. It could be a new career, a home, a business, or something more immediate, like a garden. The desire to create, build, expand, explore is universal. What is created is always unique and personal for you. Hold onto the thoughts you’re having. Let yourself daydream about whatever it is you want to do until your dream(s) can gather momentum. There’s no real hurry. You can feel a lot of pleasure and enjoyment in the dreaming stage.
