The new moon in Virgo takes place early in the morning, on Friday, August 30th. I expect a significant impact, considering the sun and moon will be conjunct, Mercury, Venus and Mars.
Note that this array includes all the personal planets and the conjunct is tight. It’s quite unusual to see all the planets bunched up like this. It’s is going to impact every single one of us in an intimate way.
The moon in Virgo is emotionally nourished by working to serve others. The new moon is concerned with new beginnings. Even if you’re not particularly geared towards helping out, this is month where you might consider it. The emphasis on Virgo at this time just can’t be denied.
We set intentions under the new moon. Here are some ideas, depending on where the new moon falls in your natal chart:
New Moon & Stellium in the 1st house – Act on one of your ideas. Clean up your act. Offer to help (without being asked).
New Moon & Stellium in the 2nd house – Clean and sort and fix your possessions. Get rid of clutter.
New Moon & Stellium in the 3rd house – Tremendous emphasis on communication of all kinds. Try to hook people up with the help they need, rather than gossip.
