The New Moon is in Virgo today joining the Sun who moved into Virgo at the end of last week.
Virgo is very much about service and being useful
on the Earth plane. A wise woman I knew once said, “fill yourself up to overflowing and only give away
to others when you are filled to overflowing.” Virgo energy is about service -- and part of the lesson is about when to give to others and when to care for the self.
A new Moon is a time for a breath in and a long breath out. A releasing of energy preparing to start again. Summer is drawing to a close in the Northern Hemisphere and it is nearly spring cleaning time in the Southern Hemisphere.
In Virgo we long to purify and let go of that which no longer serves us. The not so helpful by-product can be too much judging of the self.
So, my short and sweet for this new moon is:
Action: Breathe in.
Long Breath out.
Questions: What can I release that no longer serves me?
How can I best serve myself
Consider the service to the outer once the moon has waxed a bit. For today,
at least, see the spots in yourself and in your home that may be neglected and
need some gentle loving attention.
Gaze with love and care on yourself. As a loving mother would on her child.
Gently give to yourself what’s needed. Be kind. Be gentle. Observe yourself and your home with care. With Mars/Saturn conjunct in Scorpio the urge for physical transformation and control over ourselves, others and events will be strong. So as much as you can, allow yourself to breathe in, flow out. If there is stuff to throw out, go for it, but be as kind and gentle in all actions today as you can. Have a sweet natured inner dialogue.
Be mindful of the good you have given to yourself
and others so far this year. Keep to an inventory of the positives you’ve felt and done.
Like attracts like and if you focus on the positive beliefs and
contributions you’ve made this year, you will naturally build from there.
Tread gently with yourselves for we are all tender Ones.
