So here we go, a new moon in Virgo on August 30, at 6:37 am EDT. I love new moons. Even when they have challenging aspects generally or to my natal chart, their fundamental message is the same. New Moons represent a time of renewal and newness – new doors open, new the people enter our lives, new opportunities present themselves and, usually, synchronicities proliferate.
As an archetype, Virgo is the perfectionist, the discerner, master of details, whose mind works at the speed of light, connecting this detail with that detail to create a larger picture. Virgo tends to be very left-brain – rational, reasonable – but there’s often a deep intuition that pushes up against that left brain, whispering, Hey, forget the brain, how’s it feel?
And on August 30, half the zodiac is in Virgo: sun, moon, Mercury, Venus and Ma. The part of fortune is also there. If we look at the meanings of the planets, this lineup really strengthens the basic archetype. Sun – you, your personality, ego, total self; moon – intuition, inner life, emotions, mom, how you nurture self and others; Mercury – Virgo’s ruler and also rules communication, travel, siblings, neighbors, contracts; Venus – love, romance, money, art, beauty; Mars – the warrior, ambition, motivation, sexuality, physicality. That part of fortune is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, the place where you are incredibly lucky.
With half the zodiac in Virgo, all of us are called upon to be discerning, attentive to details, but to listen to our hunches, intuitions, gut feelings. Other earth signs – Capricorn, Taurus – will love this full moon. It forms a beautiful angle to your sun sign, especially if you’re born in the first week or so of your sign. You water signs – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces – should also benefit. Fire signs – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius – and air signs – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius – should look to the natal house where the new moon falls. You’ll benefit most according to what that house rules.
