Virgo New Moon Mood

It’s that time of month, when we get a cosmic reset and the ability to discern what needs our attention and what does not. Yesterday’s New Moon in Virgo is asking us to wade in the shadows, to focus on the darkness. You may be feeling emotional, low energy, annoyed, reclusive, or you may be feeling the potent energy of Virgo asking you to step up into this new era. Virgo is the healer, the wise one, the sensualist, connected to the earth and her healing. Virgo energy is back to school energy; it’s progressive, transformative, analytical and when evolved its the difference between judgment and discernment.

Yesterday’s New Moon may be over, but her affects still linger. The Virgo New Moon is asking us to level up. To be compassionate to ourselves while also reminding us that we can grow and meet ourselves where we want to be. What does your dream life look like? What does the healthiest, most grounded, most sensual version of yourself look like? How can you step up to make that a reality?

Take some time today to meditate, journal, breathe, reflect, orgasm, dance: whatever’s going to get you back in your body. Make a list of your spiritual, physical, professional, mental and emotional needs and set goals for yourself for each. Reflect on this as the moon waxes. What structures can you create to help support your vision? This energy is here to help you grow and bloom and level the fuck up.
