Upcoming New Moon Dates

The New Moon in Virgo will occur on September 17th. Following that is a Full Moon in Aries on October 1st.

The next New Moon falls on October 16th, in the sign of Libra.

What to Expect During the New Moon in Virgo

When the New Moon occurs in Virgo, it takes on the themes and the energy of Virgo such as:

  • Organization
  • Responsibility
  • Hard work
  • Attention to detail
  • Structure

Virgo is also a sign that rules the 6th house, the House of Health, and a focus on physical health can be felt during this New Moon.

While you may not feel ready to say goodbye to the lazy days of summer, don’t fret, because the ambitious, driven energy of Virgo will amplify your willingness and desire to get moving. If Leo season encouraged more indulging and leisure time than you expected, you can rely on Virgo to help you focus more on health and fitness.

De-cluttering is one of the main themes of Virgo, as this is a sign that prefers an organized space to work within. Virgo is a meticulous, neat sign that pays close attention to detail – meaning you might start feeling like taking a white glove to your baseboards. Forget spring cleaning, a Virgo New Moon is one of the best times of the year to organize and de-clutter your home.

Virgo energy vastly increases our ability to focus, but this intense attention to detail can also lead to overthinking and worry. Virgo energy can be neurotic at times, and this New Moon may encourage to think about your emotions rather than actually feeling them.

When everyone is collectively soaking in the energy of this New Moon, it might feel like you aren’t connecting on an emotional level with those around you. It takes more effort to express our emotions when the New Moon occurs in Virgo.

However, the focus and foresight that comes with this energy makes it easier than ever to plan for the future. And, as Virgo is ruled by Mercury, your cognitive abilities are sharpened during this transit. Virgo’s structured nature makes this an excellent time to organize your schedule and set a stable routine.

Who Will Be the Most Affected?

Because the New Moon is occurring in Virgo, Virgos will feel this energy the most deeply. Other Earth signs – Taurus and Capricorn – will also experience this New Moon on a fundamental level.

Each and every zodiac sign can prepare themselves for a boost in energy and drive during this New Moon!

Your Checklist for Using Virgo New Moon Energy

Virgo is not only an Earth sign, but it’s also the most detail-oriented sign – and, Virgos are the natural healers of the zodiac. Let’s explore ways that you can use this energy to get organized, focused, and start manifesting your dreams.

Tackle Home Projects

Virgo is the organization master, and you’ll feel a natural pull towards de-cluttering and cleaning your home. With a New Moon in Virgo, you can’t help but pay attention to details, so it’s also a great time to take a look at your calendar and make the appointments that you’ve been putting off until now.

Catching up on chores feels like a breeze during this transit, so don’t shy away from those home projects that have felt too overwhelming to tackle until now.

The cleaner and more organized your space is, the easier it is for you to focus on your heart’s desire. Use this energy to do a deep cleaning on your home, taking advantage of the earthy energy that makes it easier than ever to focus on chores.

Reset Your Schedule

Leo season was all about fun and leisure, but Virgo season lights a fire under our backsides that says it’s time to get back on track. The New Moon in Virgo is the perfect time to reset your schedule and get organized. Virgo helps you regain the structure that may have been lost or misplaced over the summer.

Virgo craves routine and stability, and these are key issues that come up during this New Moon, which beckons you to incorporate these traits into your life in some way, shape, or form. This doesn’t mean that you have to overhaul your entire calendar for the rest of the year, but rather utilize this New Moon to plant the seeds of predictability and routine.

Focus on Self-Care

Virgo is all about health, as well as hard work and routine. When you take care of and push your body, you feel more confident and capable, helping you take the calculated risks that open the doors of opportunity. If you use this New Moon to focus on your self-care routine, you’ll have more motivation and ambition to follow your dreams.

Have you been neglecting your self-care routine? Then this is the perfect time to get back on track. Your morning routine is especially important, as it sets the tone for the entire day. Exercising, meditating, and feeding yourself a nutritious breakfast are surefire ways to set a positive, motivated tone for the day.

And while Virgo energy encourages hard work, it’s also important to take time for rest and relaxation each day. Make sure to set time aside after the workday is finished to allow your body and mind time to recuperate.

Make a List

This New Moon is ambitious, but it can be difficult to figure out your next move without a clear plan. This is why lists are so important – they help you not only clear your mind, but they also help you visualize the things you want to accomplish, achieve, and attract.

While you may feel ambitious during this transit, trying to reorganize your entire life in one fell swoop is not only overwhelming, it’s nearly impossible!

Making lists allows you to take things one step at a time, making it easier to find your rhythm. You can carry a small notebook with you to make lists throughout the day, or even use the notes application on your phone – just try to remember to take notes and make lists when you feel compelled to remember a certain thought or idea.

Even if you aren’t naturally inclined towards making lists, this energy will inspire you to start taking note of the flashes of insight that the Moon and Mercury are pushing in your direction. Making lists of the things you want to attract in your life also makes it easier to start visualizing and manifesting these things.

Visualize Your Goals & Dreams

Making manifestation lists makes it easier to visualize the relationships, events, and circumstances that you want to attract. Once you’re able to visualize these things, it’s time to hold onto these images and let the energy of the New Moon start making way to brings these things to you.

The New Moon is the most delicious, fruitful time to set your intentions and practice gratitude for the things you want to manifest – even before they’ve entered your life. Imagine how you’ll feel in that dream car, the color of the interior, the sensation of your hands on the steering wheel, the feeling of the bass thumping as you play your favorite song on the stereo.

Virgo energy helps you see these details in full color. Focusing on and visualizing the things you want to manifest will amplify your ability to attract them, so imagine the color, shape, texture, smell, and tactile sensations connected to the things you want.

New Moons embody the energy of a fairy godmother, granting wishes and making your dreams come true – even if you have to wait a while to see these dreams coming to fruition. Take advantage of the giving nature of the New Moon by asking for exactly what you want during the next few days, visualizing yourself receiving those things, and feeling the gratitude you’ll experience once you’ve received them.

A Virgo New Moon Ritual

Any New Moon is an excellent time for a New Moon ritual. The perfectionistic energy of Virgo also makes it a fabulous time to work on a vision board. Why not incorporate these two ideas and try a Virgo New Moon ritual that will help you manifest your dreams quicker than ever? Here’s what you will need:

  • Poster board
  • Magazines
  • Glue

Step 1

Start cutting out pictures that represent the things you want, whether it’s a house, a car, a romantic relationship, or spiritual enlightenment. Once you’ve got your images, it’s time to set the mood.

Step 2

Find a comfortable, sacred space in your home where you can practice your ritual uninterrupted. Bring with you your poster board, glue, images, and any other art supplies you like – like glitter, markers, or paint.

Step 3

Start your ritual by burning incense, sage, or Palo Santo to clear any negativity in the air. (You can read more about using salt and sage for New Moon purification.) Put some relaxing music on, and light a candle to help you feel more relaxed and connected to the energy of the Universe.

Step 4

Now, seated comfortably, it’s time to assemble your vision board. Let your intuition guide you and try not to overthink it.

You don’t have to paste your images in a certain order or follow any kind of template; simply do what feels natural. What is important during this ritual is that you focus on visualizing the things you want to manifest.

Step 5

Once you’ve completed your vision board, keep it in a safe space until the completion of this lunar cycle – the next Full Moon.

Look at your vision board frequently throughout the next two weeks and continue visualizing these things flowing into your life. On the next Full Moon, take note of any of the dreams that have begun to blossom!
