New Moon in Virgo: 25 degrees on September 17th
The New Moon forms a trine to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and an opposition to Neptune.
The Virgo New Moon turns you toward more serious matters after a period of playful indulgences has passed. You may be mulling over the nuts and bolts of your daily life. Work may be a concern or perhaps a health matter, or even how to run your life more efficiently.
Evaluate the areas that need improvement. You may want to start listing a few areas that need your attention. Don’t worry too much about the details yet; just work on identifying what it is you would like to change. If you find that walking up a flight of stairs causes a strain on your heart, perhaps it’s time to start an exercise routine.
A job that seems to be a complete waste of your time may very well be. Consider how you can accomplish the same ends by adjusting the ways and means of completing them.
Spend time in contemplation without the distraction of music or chatter. Make notes to yourself citing several areas you want to improve. Look around your home and your workspace. Is something particularly glaring? Any visible clutter? Make a mental commitment to change.
Brainstorm on possible tools you might need to help make the job easier. Allot yourself several days to really get organized, including a detailed checklist to help you remember every step along the way. You’ll surely feel much clearer once you’ve created the space to do so.
New Moon trine Jupiter
Emotions swell during this brief transit and we can easily get carried away by feelings of sentimentality and nostalgia. The past seems like a utopian vision if we remember only the good and turn a blind eye toward the imperfect memories. Instead of looking back, we would do well to peer into the future. Visualizing our dreams and goals will actually get us started on the path toward their fulfillment. We do feel friendly and want to connect with others, particularly with family members and close friends. Self-indulgence is a distinct possibility now. Give in today and pay the price later.
New Moon trine Saturn
This short transit is excellent for getting a lot of work done, particularly tasks around the house or duties and responsibilities that we must fulfill on a regular basis. There’s a sense of stability and practicality that keeps us focused, on task and productive. We aren’t easily distracted. We feel strong on the inside and have an increased sense of security. This is a good time to make business plans because we’re reasonable and have good judgment. Mapping out goals and a path toward achieving them will provide a handy guide in weeks to come. At the end of the hardworking day, be sure to get enough rest.
New Moon trine Pluto
This brief period of intensity offers the perfect opportunity to look deep inside and perform some thoughtful self-analysis. This is far preferable to psychoanalyzing other people, who might not even be aware that we’re doing so. To avoid the urge to play armchair psychologist, grab the metaphorical flashlight and follow your own fears down to their powerful core. The result is insight and improved understanding of the self, which gives us freedom to make better choices in personal behavior. This is also a great time to lend a listening ear to a friend or loved one with a problem, for we have a depth of understanding and sensitivity that may be lacking at other times.
New Moon opposite Neptune
Communication suffers and confusion reigns during the few days this transit is in effect. Despite our best attempts to get our point across, we often have the feeling that no one understands us. When confrontation arises, we take evasive action. We want no part of controversy or arguments. Let’s hope that no decision-making will be required today, either. If it is, a coin toss might be the best way — at least it’s objective! Whatever information we have or gain during this time is likely to be incomplete or inconclusive. We’re more gullible than usual, and our judgment isn’t up to par. We’re flooded with idealistic but highly improbable ideas. We can even be deceived under this nebulous influence, so if you receive an offer that seems to good to be true, remember — it probably is. For most folks, the worst thing that will happen is feeling absentminded and indecisive.
