Virgo New Moon: Cool Clarity + Surrender
September 17, 2020 — The Virgo New Moon arrives on Thursday, at 4am Pacific Time, offering a much needed respite of clarity from our chaos and confusion.
This New Moon is forming a supportive trine to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, the very planets that have been stripping us bare all year, bringing karmic reckonings while imploding the world as we know it.
These alchemical planets are now working in our favor, helping us to call forth our strength, resilience, intelligence, and hope as we plan for continued intensity. Mars is now in retrograde until November, ramping up our traumas, triggers, anger, and frustrations. Luckily, the Virgo Moon is emerging from the conflict, offering her sweet voice, ringing like a clear bell through the fires and smoke. She is ready to help us organize and connect with our logical minds, finding fresh solutions to long-standing problems. Virgo makes order out of chaos. She works hard, with diligence, to make sure that we are on our proper paths, and that our hearts are filled with pure intention.
The Virgo Sun and Moon are opposite Neptune in Pisces, the foggiest planet and sign. Neptune is dissolving our ego and rigid mind, beckoning us to dissolve our identities and connect to the space of oneness and divine perfection. As we straddle the Virgo-Pisces axis, we’re learning to balance our hard work with surrender: How can we work hard to amend what we can and accept what we can’t? How can we find human solutions, while trusting that the universe will lead us to the best outcome, no matter what? Humility, service, and clarity of mind are the keys to unlocking the full potential of this New Moon. We can relish in Virgo’s sensibility and care, gathering our minds, clearing our thoughts, and remembering to never give up on anyone ever, beginning with ourselves. On this Virgo New Moon, may we channel our clear logic and hard work, as we surrender to the currents of divine unfoldment. May we offer our service to the collective rebirth, finding cool stillness, resilience, and order within the high heats of our chaotic confusion. Sign Up for The Alchemist's Kitchen newsletter.
