Hello and welcome to the New Moon in Virgo on 20th September 2017 @ 06:29am!
If you're anything like me then you are still spinning from the Pisces Full Moon and Mercury turning direct at the beginning of September. There's been a lot of processing and confusion in the air! Now we are being asked to finally make sense of it all, and put it into some plan of action.
Personally I LOVE Virgo New Moons. I feel it giving me the extra dose of help and support to get going with the things I need to do for myself, such as finally give up that bad habit, or start a new regime. I can even suddenly feel no longer addicted to something or another, and generally feel healthier and better, but of course we don't get there without a kick. A kick start is a good thing, but, as one of my favourite quotes says...
"And the day came when the risk to remain in a tight bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom"
- Anais Nin
As with all New Moons, the time has come to start afresh.
As with all zodiac signs, Virgo has a light side and a dark side, the light side being duty, service, cleanliness, purity, organisation, and the dark side being criticalness - be careful! Projection and shaming and blaming is high at this time, look after your own self-esteem, so your chances of coming from that place are less, and if you're on the receiving end you can find it easier to look after yourself and remember that nothing is personal. That might sound fluffy but it's true. The Second Agreement of Don Miguel Ruiz states that everything anyone says or does comes from their own reality, it's got nothing to do with you! Instead, focus on you, it's time to channel your efforts into the light side...
Set an intention to give up that bad habit, start a new and better health regime, sort out your finances, get a workable plan in action for your career. And don't tell me you don't know what it is - you do. It's no accident that we have the Pisces Full Moon before the Virgo New Moon. What messages have you been feeling and receiving the last few weeks? (Hopefully your AstroTarotMantra below will help you clarify further).
For instance, my physical world is breaking down. I have had massive messages from my body and in my work that I need to listen and take heed. It's all heading to a tipping point. Last Wednesday the pain I have become accustomed to living with in my back and hips reached such a crescendo that I could not bend forward, lean back, or turn to the side in the slightest, or raise my foot up on a step without stabbing and shooting pains going down my lower back, heck even sometimes just breathing in triggered it. The pain to remain the same became too much, and I finally found the motivation to change my diet and things improved greatly and immediately, however it's also time to remember this:
The Serenity Prayer
God Grant Me The Serenity To Accept The Things I Cannot Change; Courage To Change The Things I Can; And The Wisdom To Know The Difference.
As well as keep checking in on this question:
Am I complaining to try and get what I want?
If so, try coming out of that, remember what it is you want, and ask for that instead - focus on the good intent, not on nitpicking what isn't right, or you'll unpick all your hard earned work along the way.
