NEW MOON in VIRGO August 30th , 2019
The events, the feel of July will have lost its hold as the beginning of a new lunar cycle shifts us into high gear.
Mars, Venus, the Sun AND soon Mercury will be in Virgo – the site of the New Moon on the 30th. Virgo is the sign of the worker bee, keen on constantly seeking ways to improve and bring order to normally less-than-obvious signs of chaos. No matter what sun sign you were born under there is an urge to ‘get to work’ - cleaning, organizing, essentially resetting ourselves with clear intentions of what we hope to accomplish in the long run. It is the underlying theme both before AND a few weeks after the New Moon.
While this is a common theme for any New Moon in Virgo’s territory there are a few extras that amplify the benefits of its influence. First Uranus sits in a beautiful position suggesting changes we are working towards have 1) been a long time coming (producing a touch of anxiety and 2) also inspired us to push us passed rigid reasonings that have previously held us back. In other words, we have added pep in our step as we prep, sleeves rolled up ready to make an honest ‘try’ in areas we have been hesitant to tackle before. It’s likely something that we’ve been gearing up to do since the middle of 2018. I suspect many have made more progress (albeit in a zig zagging fashion) in the last year then they have been aware of until now. And so, we are embarking on a learning curve discovering how to better work with the flow of change instead of teetering on the edge humming and hawing about what comes next. It’s a blessing considering Pluto and Saturn have been pressuring us to get real – for some resulting in a sense of feeling frozen on the spot. These two heavy hitters are in fact well-angled in relation to Virgo making this New Moon especially useful if you have been stuck, so to speak.
Additionally, with energizer Mars and loving Venus paired close to the New Moon the drive is certainly there to deal with stressful relationship issues on a more practical level – likely stemming from a desire to improve where we stand as individuals all bullshit aside.
As always, the planetary influences play out differently for every sun sign AND with consideration of your personal birth chart.

August 30th - New Moon in Virgo// September 14th - Full Moon in Pisces
ARIES & Aries Rising...
Get back to work Aries!! Inspiration has not been lacking in your world. And now it is time to create a practical platform to manifest the best of those bright ideas into material reality. You’re probably craving more structure in regards to ‘dealing with’ your physical health/routine and stabilizing spending habits. In fact, working towards those ends will indeed calm your mind (improving your ability to manifest exactly what you want) as you transition from the leisurely lifestyle afforded you over the last few weeks.
That said, while the next few weeks unfold the power of Mars in Virgo will boost your drive pumping you up with all the energy needed to set yourself up for success. Take advantage - the New Moon in Virgo on the 30th(and the two weeks that follow) is an ideal time to put your plans in motion.
TAURUS & Taurus Rising...
There's likely an urge to revive the kid in you – the one that manages to find joy in the simplest of ways Taurus. If there are no kids in your maybe you’ll be inspired to work towards having more space, freedom to express yourself in new ways. Any ‘project’, loved-leisurely activity will do as this planetary line-up encourages you to breathe a little easier and there is no better way to do that then doing what you love. It’s been a wild year, especially for Taurus’ born mid-April so you probably could use a break to re-assemble yourself.
Also, under the New Moon you could be inspired to begin something entirely new – something you’ve just never got around to doing. Whatever it is, it is likely to weave in well with the new energy that has been ushered in with Uranus in your sign.
On a last note consider that efforts to lighten up will naturally free you from self-imposed limitations that may have had an effect on your overall health.
GEMINI & Gemini Rising...
Further to your Full Moon scope a few weeks back, resetting your base, foundations at work, at home, with family is the focus of the upcoming New Lunar cycle. It seems you’ve spent so much time running around, gathering intel, chatting up the neighbours so to speak that other areas of life are starting to feel a bit out of order. And so, under the New Moon on August 30thand for the two weeks that follow you’ll practically feel as if you have no choice but to organize, simplify your life a touch. The effort you put in now will indeed pay handsomely Gemini. Not only will you feel inspired to get rolling but a new clarity will emerge. Constructing clearly defined intentions is the first step to ensure positive growth – especially over the next six months. Virgo is a kindred spirit, governing your life direction and career aspirations Gemini so do take advantage of what is looking life one of the best lunations of the year if you’re looking to get ahead.
CANCER & Cancer Rising...
I imagine you’ve been neck deep in dealing with the details Cancer. Running this way and that (and probably chit chatting up a storm) will have taken a toll by now. The good news is financial issues, serious talks involving one of your closest relationships is likely starting to cool down. In other words, some of your energy is being returned to you as you begin to clear the decks of what has become extraneous. Truth be told, though, there is work to do. It is just that you will be more focused on prioritizing.
In another vein, the folks you are interacting with, especially at the time of the New Moon on the 30,thand over the two weeks that follow will play a role in how the ins and outs of your life develops over the next six months. It wouldn't be surprising if there is a reunion of sorts that essentially plants seeds of inspiration that you didn’t even know you’ve been looking for. Wish well and dream well Cancer -this is one of the best New Moons of the year to communicate, improve your relationships and in general realign yourself for the better.
LEO & Leo Rising...
It seems you are somewhat challenged to take a hard look at what’s worth keeping and what simply needs to be tossed Leo. There is also an urge to strongly consider how you use your time. It would not be surprising if you pop out of bed in the morning and start tackling the closets – a symbolic gesture to ‘make room’. In short, the feeling that you are starting fresh is flowing through the window of your soul – something that you undoubtedly experienced around your birthday. This sense of renewal can come in any number ways. However, work, career and finances seem central.
In terms of work and career you may be angling for a raise. Indeed, you are likely to be questioning whether ‘this’ is worth your time and effort. More than any other member of the zodiac you know your worth Leo. And so, if that isn’t reflected in what you’re gaining chances are you’ll be inspired to take risks (calculated risks that is) to set things to right.
The New Moon on the 30thand the two weeks that follow is a wonderful time to set the pace for the next six months. Before then, you’ll reap the rewards from sorting, clearing and clarifying what is of value and what just isn’t anymore.
VIRGO & Virgo Rising...
Happy Birthday Virgo!! Are you awake? I bet you are. The planetary influences under this brilliant-for-you New Moon (and for at least six months ahead) will motivate you to be the best you can be. It seems you will be positioning yourself with greater purpose – in effort to expand your world and take advantage of anything that so much as whispers the promise of embarking on a new experience. Travel, education, daring home moves, virtually anything you can associate with the term freedom is on your plate of possibility.
You are, after all, not just the celestial favorite, hosting Mars, Venus, the Sun, Mercury AND a decidedly advantageous New Moon but Uranus is lighting up the seeker in you. It’s the part of you that is forever curious always wanting to know, see and do more.
That said, wish well under this New Moon. Like magic, developments over the next six months will support the intentions you set on the 30thand for the two weeks that follow. Those born at the end of August and even early September will be receiving especially positive vibes to help them along.
LIBRA & Libra Rising...
Life is beginning to wind down Libra. It seems more focus will be needed in fewer directions which at very least, changes the pace significantly. All that has gone on over the last few months (major activity on the social front) is indeed finally starting to catch up with you. While you are naturally a community- oriented person even you need a break from that kind of hustling and bustling no matter the entertainment value. I am stressing the point as with so many planets and a New Moon positioned in Virgo (ruling sign of your 12thhouse of rest and repose) this is a perfect time of year to catch up and reset. This year, as well has likely ushered in a ton of changes suggesting it would really do you good to find your feet, your steady spot, before your birthday rolls around.
On August 30th, during the New Moon and for the few weeks that follow then, it would be wise to reassemble yourself with due consideration of your health – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually…). Dream work can also be especially revealing. In short Libra, time to get back in touch with the you for a bit before attempting to leap too far forward.
SCORPIO & Scorpio Rising...
The planetary line-up before and after the New Moon sets your social-sector aglow. Friendships, valuable connections & networks will matter to you now more than ever Scorpio. You may even be inspired to organize a reunion or to make new connections, attend events you normally wouldn’t consider. In another vein, if you are a writer or have something to say that ‘the world’ should know …well you are more likely step up to the podium in the next few weeks.
The New Moon on the 30thand the two weeks that follow is indeed a great time to speak your mind and gather with like-minded folks. In fact, the exchanges you have will have an impact on how the next six months unfolds.
I should note that while you are in the mood to be amongst the crowd if you are attached it is likely you’ll want to roam solo now and then. You’ll be able to cover more ground and are better able to take advantage of every invitation/opportunity if you don’t have to consider another’s schedule.
SAGITTARIUS & Sagittarius Rising...
Career, long-term goals and all the details that will ‘make it work’ may seem to surround every thought. In other words, there is work piling up on your table Sagittarius and it’s glaring at you. It is a good thing that you are not normally opposed to getting down to business at this time of year. However, the details do tend to bog you down even on your best day. Still, even you can’t deny that sometimes it is important to look over the fine print and organize every tidbit to ensure the big picture unfolds smoothly and efficiently. In fact, the more effort you put in the details now the easier the next six or so months will flow.
The New Moon, by the way, is particularly good if you are hoping to make a step up on the career front. Financially speaking efforts made now can translate into surprising out-of-the-blue opportunities. Something worth noting if you happen to be a freelancer. In any case Sagittarius the inspiration to get things done will be there for the next few weeks. Use it or lose it love.
CAPRICORN & Capricorn Rising...
Hallelujah the line-up of planets that have been cruising through your 8thare finally moving on! Let’s hope financial issues (tied up with power struggles involving a mate?) are drawing to a close. While there are likely loose ends to deal with it seems more a matter of handling legalities, the fine print. No doubt you will indeed be considering the details in regards to finance at least for the next month or so. Under Virgo’s influence, a fellow earth sign you may have a natural knack for finding practical solutions too – things that may have not been apparent before but are in super focus now.
What it all comes down to is it seems you are moving towards greater freedom Capricorn complete with opportunities to travel, further your education make creative (and lucrative) strides in your choice of work …. And well you name it. You're definitely not shy when it comes to hard work and when a solid plan forms in your mind there is no stopping you when you're ready to start the climb. The New Moon on the 30thand the few weeks that follow is a great time to take those first steps up.
AQUARIUS & Aquarius Rising...
As the faster moving planets march into your solar eighth it looks like you’ll be faced with tough decisions at the time of the New Moon on the 30th and at least a few weeks beyond. Home, family, relationships and finances are all central to your considerations. Of course, when the pressure is on, as it is, it can also affect your health Aquarius. While, I am not necessarily predicting bad news here you’ll be pressed to figure out 1) what is really worth focusing on and 2) what is realistically within your control to change. Once you have made that crystal clear though, the New Moon provides just the push you need to do what needs to be done without reservation AND offers a clear sense of what can be expected down the road. To leave you on a positive note, genius ideas/solutions are liable to strike when you (finally) allow yourself to lay that head down lightly on the pillow. In other words, letting go of certain things (you know what they are or will soon) is key now and in the months ahead.
PISCES & Pisces Rising...
You’re poised to begin or renew a commitment to someone or something that you consider too valuable to lose Pisces. As so many planets gather in the sign opposite yours you could say that who or what you devote yourself to is a clear reflection of what you need more of in your life. You get what you give darling.
In the same vein, it is funny to note that Pisces can often be as pernickety as Virgo when it comes to where they focus their energies. In fact, if that is true for you it is likely you’ve already found the balance point from where you can build your dreams. That is, what you wish for, want AND work towards now has an extremely good chance of developing into something more over the coming months. The New Moon then is a perfect time to zoom in on what you would like more of in your life especially in regard to close relationships.
