What does it all mean?
Virgois all about the details, so be prepared to see to them or at least have someone else see to them for you, you will feel better 🙂
Try not to worry about things you have no control over, especially things that might not ever happen… Because Virgo “see’s” all the details others miss, it’s hard for her not to worry…
It’s good to keep busy during a Virgo moon, make lists, tidy, organize, plan, find solutions to problems… a lot can get done now
Virgo can be more critical than the rest of the zodiac, but only because she so need things to be “correct” or “perfect”. Try to give yourself and others a break over the next couple of days. If you are an employer, be prepared that tasks may not get completed exactly they way you had expected.
In the 11th house: If you have been thinking about volunteering, now is the perfect time for you to start… we can feel kinder towards our community and those who have less then us… It is also the perfect time to get your head into a beloved hobby, and to hang out with friends…
This moon’s influence is positive for: Breaking “bad” habits, Canning foods, Fixing cars, Hair cut (for less growth), sending mail or starting a diet.
This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
Moon in Virgo
Sun in Virgo
Ascendant in Virgo
Mid-heaven in Virgo
Moon in 6th and or 11th house
Any aspects to the Moon, Venus or Mercury.
And those who have a strong Piscean placement in their charts..
NEW MOON occurs on Friday August 30th @ 6:37 am (ET) and @ 3:37 am (PT).
The New moon is traditionally known as a good time to begin a new project, job or relationship…. Saturday the 31st is likely the best time for new endeavors under this new moon…. Check that other factor are favorable before committing to any new situations, especially if they are to be long term… Situations that involve communications, transportation and technology are likely to be the most successful….
Take care not to be too critical, towards the self and others…
It can be a very productive time at work, this includes community work, volunteer work, vocational work and hobbies…
Because the new moon is the sign of Virgo, Mercury is in the sign of Virgo and the Sun is in the sign of Virgo… This could be a great time for new writing material… so if you are a writer, have wanted to be writer or just need to get pen to paper for whatever reason… 🙂
Mercury moves into the sign of Virgo until 14th of September
Mercury is the planet of communications, technology and transportation… He rules Virgo and Gemini
Virgo pays close attention to details, works hard and does what is needed… Virgo is also critical of themselves and others.
Mercury is comfortable in Virgo, as he rules her… Details at work will take precedence over other things making this a good time to get ahead in work projects… However, it is easy to get so caught up in the details, busy taking care of the little things, that we can miss out on the bigger picture…. take a step back and look up and around once in a while… 🙂
Exercise and a healthy diet will help to take care of any of nervous tension or anxiety, which can be an issue for some folks when Mercury visits with Virgo…
If you have been thinking of going on a job search, and if other factors “agree” as Mercury visits with Virgo, it can be an excellent time to proceed…. as is reviewing and updating personal career/work/vocational goals.
Team work should proceed smoothly, making this an excellent time to delegate work, and/or to get involved in community events…
Friends and socializing can help to release pent up energy/emotions, and is highly recommended.
In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂
The Moon Void-of-Course:
There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void off Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void off Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-off-Course moon…
Good for Void-Of-Course Moon:
These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.
Opportunity Periods (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):
There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods.
Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.
