The Stage is Set for an extraordinary cosmic gathering at the time of this New Moon in Virgo on August 25th! This is an exciting and powerful alignment designed to assist us in answering the call of our heart and destiny! The planets involved, all at 17 degrees, are Uranus in Aries, Mercury in Virgo, and Saturn conjunct Mars in Scorpio. They will be forming a configuration called a Yod, better known as the finger of God or Fate in Astrology! Additionally, we have the Sun and Moon in Virgo at 3 degrees (A New Moon), opposing Neptune, (Spirit) in Pisces! Wow….! How lucky are we to have such an alignment at this most critical time on our planet!
We all have been working very hard the last 6 to 9 months during the Grand Cross energy to make changes, release what holds us back, and embark on new directions.
Each month the New Moon is a chance to wipe the slate clean and start anew in some area of our life. The axis of this New Moon is Virgo/ Pisces. At the highest level of vibration it is asking us to ground and walk the path of service, ( Virgo) integrating and listening to our highest self and Spiritual guidance, ( Pisces!)
The Yod at this new Moon is asking us to clear out or change something in our life that is keeping us from moving forward in some way. This simply means “ do that thing” you very likely know you must, but have been avoiding! More than likely it will have the qualities that involve your health, nutrition, exercise, meditation, and your spiritual practice….. Those behaviors and habits we do on a daily basis. It is that THING you know you need to do…but just keep putting off!
It will give us the gift of Clarity, Courage, Motivation, and Enthusiasm to walk our personal and collective paths! The timing of the Virgo New Moon/ Yod couldn’t be more perfect! It directs us to take inventory of our lives, impelling us to harvest our talents and release what is not in alignment with our soul’s intention and purpose.
She deals with perception of patterns and the quest for refinement, integration, and wholeness. Her sacred task is to identify and rectify imbalances between body, mind, and spirit.
She prompts us to remember our divine origins and the roles we choose to play at this critical time on our beautiful planet Earth.
This Virgo New Moon with all its aspects this month asks us to:
Simplify our lives….
Dedicate ourselves to what’s important….
Be mindful of what goes thru our mind…
What we are thinking, we are broadcasting..
Entertain new ways of looking at ourselves and our world….
What needs to be released so you can be of greater service and add your own “Secret Sauce “to the world?
And I love this quote ….. High vibration Virgo!
“Work is love made visible” Kahlil Gibran…
Spend time during the Balsamic moon phase… (3 days prior to the new moon, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) and ponder your different life situations. Keep uppermost in your mind that YOU chose! That it IS time! That you have everything you need to engage these mystical and transformational energies directly and consciously! You will benefit greatly from doing so. The energy of Mars conjunct Saturn in Scorpio will empower you to take command of any situation. Mars will mobilize great spiritual power to help you achieve your highest goals, BUT… you must come from a very high level of integrity and intention for this to happen!
Mercury in Virgo will give you a blue print…a plan…to execute and know how to proceed with your new ideas. It will be clear, practical, and efficient!
The New Moon in Virgo is exact at 7:13 AM PDT, Monday August 25th.
Remember, do your ceremony at the exact time or AFTER……NOT BEFORE. You can make your lists and prepare… But…….., do your ceremony after!
And, as a reminder, New Moons occur every 29 1/2 days when the Moon aligns with the Sun in each of the 12 signs. It is a natural time of new beginnings. The ancients used the timing of the moon as a way of life, from planting to sowing to celebrating. New Moons are about starting anew. This month we honor and work with the qualities of Virgo…..and the Powerful amazing Yod configuration!
