Having a hard time sleeping? It’s always difficult to sleep when the energy of the New Moon in Virgo is present.
If your mind is working overtime, this is normal. This New Moon is aligning with the intentional Virgo season!
Astrological Energy Shift: New Moon in Virgo
When moon phases align with where the Sun is transiting, the cosmic energy is amplified. In this case, the Sun moved into Virgo on August 22, 2020 and this will be your first New Moon in Virgo since, amplifying everything that Virgo represents.
New Moon energy can be decoded by simply admiring the moon in it’s present phase.
Have you ever looked at a New Moon? It’s hard to see because the night sky is black as the moon “hides.” You can’t see very much of it, but you can feel it’s presence and you know it’s there.
The moon represents the subconscious and our emotions. New Moons are a great time to dive into the depths of our emotional world and start manifesting.
As you can see, there are several phases that need to take place before a Full Moon is present again where you’ll be able to see an illuminated night sky. This means that you have time to wrestle with your subconscious to decide what it is that you truly want to manifest.
There is symbolism when the Moon becomes more visibly present. The more of the Moon that is visible, the more details and aspects of your life are illuminated, leading to your next big detox of what no longer serves you during the next Full Moon.
Maximize This Energy
Since you will be dealing with Virgo energy, it’s important to remember what Virgo represents. Symbolized by the Maiden or the Virgin, it’s important to remember that Virgo is a human and a woman at that, amplifying feminine energy.
Virgo is also an earth sign that represents the day to day life of the human experience, balanced by the watery opposing Pisces that represents the oneness with universal energy of the human experience. Virgo wants you to materialize with intention so organization, detoxing, and strategy is key.
With Virgo being a Mercury-ruled earth sign, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by your mind when trying to define and manifest your goals. If you find yourself becoming too critical of yourself, try some more Piscean tasks like meditation to calm your thoughts.
