Today, August 30, is New Moon in Virgo. Virgo is an earth sign, as in, it’s time to come back to earth after a fun, fabulous summer. It helps us to become more grounded, more practical, taking care of business. It helps us to become more detail oriented, more aware of what needs to change, and more aware of the Earth. There are eight planets in earth signs, so that might give you an idea of the strength of this New Moon. Virgo also embodies being of service to others.
A lot of people I’ve spoken to lately are saying they felt as though they were in limbo, that space between, and they were anxious about being there. I say “What a wonderful place to be. This is a place of possibilities; this is where the magic happens.”
Every once in a while the Universe gives us the opportunity to rest, heal, take stock of ourselves and get ready, clear and open to receive the new. August has been perfect timing for this. For many of us, September is conditioned to be the start of a new year, and we need that time. So if you are, or have been experiencing this, relax with it, go with it. Things are gearing up.
This New Moon seems to be what we have been waiting for. The flood gates open, and new awareness, new opportunities and new ways of thinking roll in. Keep your eyes and ears open so you don’t miss anything.
This year, Virgo is bringing in a time of change, of transition. We have the opportunity to heal, using gifts from the earth , such as crystals and herbs. We have the opportunity to bring in love and abundance and have some aha moments.
I discovered a new way of journaling a few months ago. It’s been very helpful to me, so I’m passing it on to you. It involves asking questions beginning with “how”, then letting the ideas flow. This technique has helped me to make decisions, it has helped me to see the path ahead and has helped me to focus on how to move forward. I hope it helps you.
So, here are some sample questions:
- How can I improve myself and my life?
- How can I serve more people in a more discerning way?
- How can I make better choices for myself and my family?
- How do I bring more creativity into my life?
- How do I create more joy in my life?
Take this opportunity to create your own questions, then start writing and see what comes out. You may find a gem.
