The New Moon in Virgo is worthy of it's own blog post. The Moon and Sun meet in Virgo at 11:04 pm EST as Mercury has just stationed direct in Leo on Friday. Mercury began the retrograde in Virgo and will be retracing those degrees soon. The push for resolution & forward movement is very strong! Allow for flexibility and avoid negativity and criticism during this time since Virgo can be prone to perfectionism and holds very high expectations generally. As a mutable sign, Virgo's gift is versatility and drawing on that quality will greatly ease anxiety and help situations flow naturally and benefit even those of us not dealing with Mercury retrograde confusion and clean up.
The arrival of a New Moon just as Mercury prepares to move forward seems very auspicious and well timed, and with Venus just a few degrees ahead in the same sign, blessings, reconciliations, and positive feelings should be abundant. Our eyes may open to beauty and our hearts open to each other. Letting go of judgments, holds and blocks, and the idea that there is only one way is possible now and favored by the universe. Jupiter will align with the Virgo Moon and Venus in the next two days adding to the good fortune and optimism. Jupiter is philosophical, expansive and open minded, and in Taurus lends a grounded, how-to approach if you're ready to set goals, take the first or next steps and make things happen, potentially in a very big way! Remove perceived road blocks and explore avenues for growth and expansion in relationships, career, business, and home life. All areas of our lives are prime to bloom after a series of spring/summer eclipses followed by Mercury retrograde, and now a well placed New Moon to spur us on!
