New Moon in Virgo September 2021

The New Moon in Virgo occurs at 01:51 (BST) on September 7, 2021 at 14°Vi38′. This is a dynamic New Moon which widely opposes Neptune and closely trines Uranus. Here we are in the void but who better than Virgo to create order from chaos? There is an opportunity to set seeds of intention to create change in our daily lives. The focus is on routines, work, health, skills and service and with Uranus involved, the prompt is to awaken and upgrade! It’s time to upskill says the universe, whether it’s the skills you use for your job or position or just life skills. The world is changing and we need to change with it. Be open to learning new techniques.

Yes we may feel out of sorts at times with Neptune in the mix. The challenge is that in the face of great uncertainty, loss and disillusion, many of us have secret hopes, ideals, wishes. But not everything is workable in the current reality so there may be a need to break down our dreams into more manageable bite size pieces, test the theory, experiment. With Mars also in Virgo, although not conjunct the New Moon, we’re constantly motivated to ‘make it better’. But as Mars too more closely opposes Neptune, there’s part of us still wondering whether anything we do counts at all. For some, maybe it feels like it doesn’t matter what we do, it’s all a tiny drop in a vast ocean.

Yes, what we do counts. A drop becomes a wave. We need to have faith. We need to stay grounded. Hygeia, conjunct his lunation, asks us also to cleanse and declutter, inside and outside. The clearer we feel in our lives and in our minds, the easier it is to be flexible and adaptable to sudden changes or even simply the march of progress. If you feel lost, focus on the basics, Look after your physical body. Eat well. Sleep well. Move to the best of your ability. With ruler of this lunation, Mercury, in a trine to sensible, stable Saturn, the more we stick to the facts , the easier it is to maintain our equilibrium.

I recorded a 38mins astro-tarot reading for this lunation over on my Patreon (on the $1 tier and up) where I discussed the aspects of this lunation along with the Sabian symbol and asteroids Atropos, Homerus, Memoria and Okyrhoe. Click here to join my Patreon
