Too often, Virgo is stereotyped as the aloof librarian, the neat freak, the nitpicker. She comes after Leo, the sign of pomp and play, and before Libra, the sign of peace and pleasure. Someone had to clean up after Leo and set a clean, firm foundation upon which the Libran scales could be exquisitely calibrated!
Never underestimate Virgo’s ability to roll up their sleeves and get dirty in order to clean things up. Virgo kneels at the altar of What Must Be Done. It rules routines, service, the daily grind, and most importantly, the job-worth-doing-well-done.
In the spirit of Virgoan purity and meticulous attention to detail, let us remember that the word “virgin” has not always meant “one who has never had sex.” In ancient Greece, priestesses were “virgins,” the original meaning translating to “one-in-herself,” a woman who owns herself.
A virgin was a respected maiden, an unmarried woman who had full governance over her body and sexuality. Virgin, then, did not mean pure of sexuality — it meant free from mental or physical tyranny. A virgin was a woman of strength, independence, and wisdom, and this is the aspect that Virgo evokes.
A New Moon is activating a powerful trio of planets in the sign of the high-minded virgin, the clear-eyed assessor, humble servant, and truth-teller: the sparkling Sun, assertive Mars, and quick-witted Mercury — this powerful choir is lifting their voices so you can hear your calling in the final days of Virgo season.
Virgo is devoted, detail-oriented, and always does her best to get things right. So, this stellium shines on the area of your life which requires your hard work, your humble devotion, in order to set yourself up for pleasure and peace.

This is your opportunity to prepare for the long term future, to “act as if” your best life is already happening. (The publisher wants the book ready in a month/your audience eagerly waits your broadcast in October/you just got the call saying your dream job is available/your dream date asked you out, et. al.)
Whether that means de-cluttering and cleaning your home in preparation for your future move, sprucing up your home office to accelerate your side hustle, or simply making yourself and the ones you love most feel more comfortable and secure — the practical steps you take now march you toward their eventual future. Bonus points if you take some of those steps in fuzzy slippers.

The urge to multitask could be pretty overwhelming in the face of all the invites, emails, forms, and phone calls you’re fielding this week, and that’s on top of your errands, classes, and coffee dates! Mercury and Mars working this close together particularly makes you prone to rush and/or scatter your energy in a myriad of directions, resulting in a lot of unfinished tasks and frustration.
The New Moon offers your a cleansing new beginning, the chance to consciously direct these energies to work in your favor. What sort of schedule would serve your honest-to-goodness desires? Taking the time to map out your priorities and schedule the time to: study for that exam/conquer that inbox/return those calls/submit that paperwork/insert your errand here — will serve you a lot better than leaping gung ho into a pile of tasks. This is very fortunate energy for interesting new opportunities — so make sure your mind and inbox are both clean, organized, and ready to receive!

Together, they’re helping you quietly cut away the frayed edges of loose ends, sort and toss emotional clutter, and clear away the cobwebs in this House of Endings. The Sun is preparing to move into your sign; your most powerful opportunities of the year are just ahead — so now is the time to rest, review, repair, and prepare. This is an excellent time for behind-the-scenes work, solitary study, and research.
Reflecting upon your goals brings rich insights — although you may find yourself sweeping a few old dreams away, it is only to reveal those new dreams that are more befitting of you now. You’re in the process of re-orienting and rearranging, which is often equal parts awkward and exhilarating!
This is the House of Sacrifice and Blind Faith. Trust, Libra. Your time is coming, and you don’t want a lot of old emotional baggage weighing you down when you’re running toward this peak.

Invitations and opportunities are forecast to fly at you now, and in the coming weeks, as the New Moon always kicks off a steady build of energy.

Right time/right place magic is coursing through your chart, especially as the planet of luck, growth, and expansion, Jupiter, prepares to move into your sign in October.
You’re likely to be full of ideas right now — don’t hesitate to connect with those who you know can help lift you and amplify your message. And if you suddenly come up with a new plan, or your old plans alter or disintegrate altogether, try to look at this joyfully as part of the alchemical process — the breakdown before the reconstitution, lead to gold. Rebirth is your specialty, Scorpio. A new life is on the horizon.

This is a great time to take charge of your life, your public persona, and your goals. You’re bound to be noticed this week, as this energy acts as a sort of cosmic highlighter, so make an effort to dress your best, speak with confidence, double check your emails and applications, and do your due diligence.

You may feel compelled to change up your focus in a big way, whether by traveling, taking a class, or diving deep into a new skill or topic that will allow you to stretch beyond your current status, and really enliven your soul. You’re hungry for an adventure and it’s time to feed your spirit.
This is a great week to expand your activities. Go new places, try new things, explore the talents or topics that once seemed outside your wheelhouse. As usual, Capricorn, without even having realized it, you have ascended to a new level. Fresh new perspectives and routines are forecast!
If you’ve been feeling a little itchy lately, Aquarius, it could be that you’re sensing that you’re about to shed yet another skin. This week, the New Moon, motivated Mars, mental Mercury, and the spotlighting Sun are activating your House of Intimacy and the Other, AKA, the House of Sex, Death, and Rebirth.
This energy is ripe for self-empowerment — you have an opportunity to peel back some layers and really get intimate with yourself, your rawest needs, most secret desires, and deepest fears. What they are and why they are, and how to make them work for you. This is the House of Shadow work, of accessing the untapped resources we have hidden from ourselves.
When you recognize your patterns and motivations without shame, you gain the key to unlock and adjust them — to take conscious control. To actually get what you want. Your intuition is keen right now, Aquarius. Listen carefully and without judgment. When you do that, more power and pleasure are forecast.
It’s all about your one-on-one connections this week, Pisces. The New Moon is activating the powerful trio of the shining Sun, motivated Mars, and mental Mercury in your House of Partnerships, prompting a new beginning when it comes to your most personal relationships. Discussions, conflicts, and resolutions all abound under this dynamic energy. If you’ve been waiting to ask a question, send a message, or clear the air about something with someone very close to you, now is the time.
It may also be that you need, or feel you need, the support of a partner in your life or work right now. The desire to “bounce ideas off of” someone, and to share some banter is present. You’re expressing yourself quite well and confidently now, so whether it’s your romantic partner, a business associate, or best friend, you’re bound to come up with some new and exciting joint endeavors this week! Working cooperatively is forecast to bring you greater success!
This is also a wonderful time to create new resolutions for yourself when it comes to your one-on-one relationships. Do you give too much? Take too much? Do you feel both supportive and supported? Empowering yourself allows you to empower your loved ones to take care of you. Sharing is caring, Pisces, especially when it comes to letting us know what you need. When you are happy, you make the whole world brighter.
