On September 14th, 2023 we have a New Moon at 21° Virgo that is charged with practical magic and harmonious energies. It offers up a cleansing and clearing type energy, that helps us declutter, so fresh energy can come in. This is a unique moon that calls for manifesting and alchemy! This moon offers treats and has a lot of strength behind it. This will be The last lunar cycle before we step into eclipse season.

Virgo, the meticulous and analytical sign ruled by Mercury, invites us to step into the realm of refinement and precision. When the New Moon graces this earthy sign, it brings our focus toward self-improvement, organization, and paying close attention to the details of our lives. But with this New Moon, there is a twist – Mercury, the ruling planet of Virgo, is stationed standing still before moving direct, adding an intriguing layer of depth to this moon.

Mercury, as the cosmic messenger, rules over communication, intellect, and the processing of information. When it stations it seems to pause in its journey before it shifts direction. This stillness holds unique significance, encouraging us to pause, reflect, and refine our thoughts and intentions. So on the eve of this New Moon work with the energy as a time to reflect and be in stillness as you go deeper in understanding your intentions moving forward. With this New Moon in Virgo and Mercury stationed while opposing Saturn, it is best to take things slow, we’re granted a moment of introspection around our thoughts, words, and intentions. It’s a time for profound clarity to fine-tune our plans and ideas. This is a huge opportunity for a major reset!

Another special point to make about this New Moon is in astrology we like to look for aspect configurations, and this moon has a special one known as a Kite. This cosmic alignment can propel us towards greater heights of transformation and self-discovery. This energy offers a powerful catalyst for change and personal growth. Imagine this kite aspect as a cosmic wind that lifts us up, offering us a unique perspective on our lives and a harmonious flow of energy.

Part of this kite is the moon forms a Grand Trine with Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. This is beautiful energy for transformation, innovation, and deep-rooted change on a psychological level. It encourages breaking free from some stagnant patterns and embracing new ways of doing things, particularly in how we manage our daily routines and practical matters, along with our finances and long-standing goals. Also in the mix is Neptune in Pisces opposing this Grand Trine. Neptune, our planet of dreams and spirituality is infusing a touch of inspiration and intuition. It’s as if the Universe is urging us to blend the mundane with the mystical, finding a harmonious balance between our everyday lives and our dreams and ideals.

When I think of Virgo, I think of Alchemy. Virgo embodies both the alchemist and the healer through its dedication to refinement and service-orientated approach. Always considering the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects, along with the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit. So, to harness the alchemical energies of this New Moon, consider setting intentions related to personal growth, health, and self-improvement of your daily routines. What aspects of your life could benefit from a touch of alchemical transformation? Whether it’s purifying your thought patterns, detoxifying your body, or refining your goals, this energy offers the time to embark on your inner alchemical journey.

May this New Moon inspire your inner alchemist as you take a moment to listen from within and set your intentions with newfound precision.

Wishing you a healing New Moon.
