On September 14th, around 9:39 pm EST, the New Moon—the moon phase associated with fresh starts — will appear in the practical, adaptable sign of Virgo. All new moon transits provide a reset each month (and tend to be ideal for setting intentions and manifestations). However, there is something particularly motivating about the New Moon in Virgo.
It’s important to note that this New Moon is forming a harmonious trine with Uranus in Taurus. This can bring about exciting (yet unexpected) revelations. Additionally, Mercury (Virgo’s ruling planet) is currently in retrograde in Virgo. This may sound alarming, but rest assured, Mercury is in its final day of retrograde on September 15.
While all the zodiac signs will experience the effects of the new moon, some will feel its impact more than others. Check out the signs below (Sun and Rising!) to see which zodiac signs will flourish during the New Moon in Virgo.
The New Moon appears in your 1st House of Self and Identity, and the desire for you to wipe the slate clean is feeling pretty powerful. With the Sun and Mercury both in your sign (the latter in its last day of retrograde), it may feel as though the stars are aligning after some cloudiness and uncertainty. Don’t be afraid to lean into it. You may feel inspired to change up your appearance. Have some major goals you’ve been mulling over the last few weeks? Set those intentions and start making plans, because this cosmic shift is ready to set you up for what’s next.
As this New Moon shows up in your 7th House of Relationships, it could be time for some important conversations with those close to you. Mercury in Retrograde has already been pushing you to reflect on the state of your connections—romantic, platonic, and otherwise. Now, the new moon transit is here for the fresh start you’ve been craving. You simply must be willing to talk things through. With the transit forming a trine with Uranus in Taurus in your 3rd House of Communication, the moment for these talks is fast approaching. Work towards being as honest and clear as you can while hearing others out. Keep in mind that this will clear the path for stronger foundations or for newer connections.
Ready for some spotlight, Sagittarius? With the New Moon appearing in your 10th House of Career and Public Image, your career and reputation are deserving of your attention. New moon transits can offer a new opportunity, which you should certainly take into consideration. However, you may also be feeling some pressure to decide which path you want to take, and now that Mercury is shifting out of retrograde, you just might get some clarity. What are you hoping for your life to be? How do you want the world to know you? With Uranus in Taurus forming a positive aspect, you may feel empowered to create the habits and structures you need to thrive.
As the New Moon is taking place in your 5th House of Romance and Creativity, you may feel as though a weight has been lifted off your shoulders regarding your creativity. If you’ve felt like you’ve been hitting a wall, take a deep breath. Things are starting to change. Some much-desired inspiration may start taking root with this moon phase, so keep your heart and mind open to possibilities. Take some time to sit with what brings you joy, what your creative legacy looks like, and what makes you passionate.
