All New Moons are an opportunity for a new beginning, but the New Moon in Virgo is an especially positive time for anyone looking to start new healthful habits or to stop harmful ones.
In astrology, The New Moon brings us a chance to reset our goals and to commit to making necessary changes. This is an optimistic period of the month, but to make best use of the New Moon, just as with a Full Moon, it’s vital to align its lunar energies with the energies of the relevant zodiac sign.
Virgo is traditionally associated with health, and perhaps especially with nutrition and with alternative health. Make a resolution during the Virgo New Moon to up your vitamin and mineral intake, and perhaps try out a new eating regime. Not a diet as in a punitive, miserable restriction of calories or fats – we’re talking diet in the true sense of the word, taking in food which enriches and nourishes you.
As a zodiac sign, Virgo is also famously critical by nature. However, the upside of this critical ability is discernment, and that’s what we can use during the Virgo New Moon. Discern what – and who – is good for you and what – and who – is not, and make plans to maximize that which brings you positivity and upliftment.
In astrology, Virgo energies are also about detail, perfection and intricacies. During this moon phase, we can take a critical look at our schedules, routines, time management and organizational habits. Clear your clutter, mentally as well as physically, and find ways to achieve more in less time. Virgo is a mutable sign, so well able to balance what may seem to be conflicting priorities.
The Virgo New Moon is also a great time to pay attention to your mental health. In astrological terms, this sign’s energies can be quite worrisome and nervy, so learn to relax better and to put future worries out of your mind. Mindfulness and meditation can be really helpful for this, so make focusing only on the now a key part of your Virgo New Moon preparations. With Virgo being an earth sign, anchoring yourself in nature can help too.
Horoscopes: The Virgo New Moon for Each of the Sun Signs
As with Full Moons, the energy of the Virgo New Moon is subtly different for each of the Sun signs, depending on the location of the planets in the moment of your birth. So, in astrology, for each sign of the zodiac there are different ways of making the most of what Virgo brings us.
Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During the Virgo New Moon
Get down to work. This Virgo New Moon brings enthusiasm for getting on with it, so this is a good time to banish procrastination. Aries is good at starting things but not to great at finishing them – use Virgo’s energy to manifest some staying power and a sense of responsibility which will help you finish what you started.
Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During the Virgo New Moon
This is a playful vibe for Taurus, and excellent for dating, partying or meeting someone new. Yes, Virgo energy can party – just you wait and see! It’s a fabulous time for entertaining too, Taurus, although you’ll want everything to be just perfect. Rope in some friends for the clean-up the morning after!
Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During the Virgo New Moon
Time to clean house – literally and figuratively, Gemini. Use this Virgo New Moon energy to clear up your clutter and to get rid of things which are taking up space in your head. Freshen everything up and you’ll also freshen up your own outlook on life. Redecorating or even finding a new home is well starred now and the perfect new project for this lunation. New surroundings will refresh your mind and your spirit.
Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During the Virgo New Moon
Time to go back to school, Cancer? You’ve learned that you need some intellectual challenge, so this is the perfect New Moon for planning a return to education. Don’t be daunted by the prospect – it’s important now that you stretch your mind and your mental agility. Even if it’s just for pleasure, not for your career, learn something new. You are far more capable than you believe.
Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During the Virgo New Moon
Take a fresh look at how you value yourself. Others value you, for sure, but despite your Leo flamboyance you have a deep-rooted sense of insecurity. The Virgo New Moon can help you to see yourself as others see you, and in that way, come to value and to love yourself just as much as we love you.
Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During the Virgo New Moon
Reinvent yourself! You spend a lot of time worrying about what others think of you, but with the New Moon in your own sign there comes a delicious sense of freedom and individuality. It’s time to get that tattoo, change your hair color, switch up your wardrobe or simply express who you truly are.
Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During the Virgo New Moon
Empathy may overwhelm you during this New Moon – you want to serve the world, as Virgo energy so often does – but in order to do so, you must first serve yourself. Stop feeling guilty for needing a rest. Take time out during this New Moon and resolve to do something just for you.
Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During the Virgo New Moon
Networking is a big deal during the Virgo New Moon and rather than getting to know people for how you can use them – be honest, Scorpio, you do do that sometimes – you’re enjoying getting to know people just for the sake of it. This is a highly sociable time and a very genuine moment for you too. Make the most of it.
Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During the Virgo New Moon
Focus on your goals for self-discipline during the Virgo New Moon. You like to make a good impression in the world, but not all of it is always honest. During this lunation you have the power to genuinely focus on self-improvement, so that you can be your best self at all times. Your intent is pure, Sagittarius, so drop the showmanship and just be yourself.
Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During the Virgo New Moon
It’s rather a restless New Moon for Capricorn, so don’t be surprised to find yourself with itchy feet or unable to settle. The truth is that you need a new challenge, and perhaps pastures new too. If you can travel, you should. If you can’t, at least free your imagination and resolve to get out of your rut as fast as you can. Remaining where you are simply isn’t an option.
Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During the Virgo New Moon
Don’t be surprised to gain new insights into others during this New Moon. It activates the most psychologically perceptive area of your chart, which can be a mixed blessing. Knowing what motivates others means you can see right through them, but isn’t it better to know than not to know? Use the pureness of Virgo’s energy to avoid becoming jaded and overly suspicious.
Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During the Virgo Moon
This New Moon falls in your love zone, Pisces, and it is indeed a good time to start a new relationship. If you’re happily attached, however, it’s a good time to renew the magic. Relationships take work, so be prepared to put in the effort. This New Moon comes as a reminder that everything worth having involves difficult choices at times.
