This new moon is in the earth sign of Virgo. Virgo’s positive aspects include discernment and wisdom about current and future needs. Virgo has immense respect for natural resources, and keeps a clear eye the equitable use, distribution, and saving of these resources. Virgo’s guardians are divine heavyweights: Demeter, Gaia, Artemis, Iris, and Mercury. Virgo is also a healing sign with its focus on futuristic and forward thinking healing modalities.
With this moon, the celestial and earth energies call us to put our love into action. The active principle is now our driving force. That’s why it will feel right to do ritual work, volunteer for political activities, clear clutter with an intention, or start something new and wonderful. Whatever you’ve been dreaming, whatever you’ve seen in visions that you desire, whatever your heart pulls you toward – the time is right to take loving action. This means now.
One of the overall gifts of this moon cycle is the reminder that our souls are born from the ancient mystery: shining with the ultimate truth, ancestral guidance, and earth wisdom. These are the qualities of the love that creates all life.
Watch for hidden and long-held secrets to come out. This may be very overwhelming and hard to wrap our minds around. The message is: don’t fear the dark, anger, or fear itself. Rather, embrace and allow it all while also embodying light, love, joy, and creativity. Hold light, reflect light, and send light out into the world. Allow this light to peacefully and naturally illuminate and disperse any lingering shadows.
Remember: simple is best. Just offer the love and light as an unconditional gift.
To fuel all this action, we’re also being given so much inspiration. Find a balance between action and quiet time. When you go within, you’ll find it easy to get in touch with your inner strength, intuition, and creative spark. Once you do, it will feel easy and natural to proactively move in the sacred direction to which your heart feels called.
Ground yourself in love, surround yourself with love, let love fill every bit of space inside and outside you, and reflect your love out into the world. Release anger and fears. Forgive others, and forgive yourself. Make room in your being for love and light. You and the multiverse are better served when all the space you are is filled with this divine radiance.
Even though mainstream news sources paint a picture of chaos, the truth is that all beings on all levels in all dimensions, including humans and all life on Earth, are raising their vibrations and awakening to new levels of being. Truly everyone is learning new ways to be. Humans are actually entering a new vibration we have never experienced before. It feels like that for all the other beings, too. Lightworkers and magical people play an important part in steadying this vibration and holding the space for it to properly emerge. That’s why we must remember to act with compassion, tolerance, kindness and immaculate self-care.
Luckily, powerful Aquarius energies are washing over us to us to show us we have what it takes to hold this space and support this positive transformation. These energies are also reminding us that we have the unflagging support of ancestors who are helping raise the vibrations and steady us on our journey to collective wholeness.
The shadow side of humanity is being exposed at a rapid rate, which allows it to be healed. The placement of Aquarius in this Virgo moon cycle helps us focus spiritual energy on awakening, transforming, and correcting our course as needed.
In earthy Virgo, plants, minerals, and the very earth beneath our feet are all communicating with us…and we should really listen. We all have wisdom to share with one another on all levels to make this leap in vibration. We need each other, and we all share a common heart, a common love and a common light. Listen to the plants, trees, flowers, crystals, rocks, mountains, water, air and all the beings that comprise the earthy aliveness of Mama Earth. They’re calling to us with all they have, and this Virgo moon cycle gives us the opportunity to hear them like we’ve never heard them before.
