New Moon in Virgo: Keep your dreams strong, keep your faith stronger.

They say it's not enough for us to have dreams, we need to have faith in them. Because if we don't have faith in them, who will? And where does action fit into all this? Action has always been a crucial part in dream building. Small action steps are just as important as big action steps. The little details that often go unnoticed or happen behind the scenes. They may seem tedious at times because they have to be done whether we want to do it or not. The paperwork we have to do, the little errands we have to run, or anything that has to be done regularly every day, every week, every month, or every year. They are here to teach us about the art of time management. A good time management includes an order of priority — what needs to be done first and what can be done later. Setting realistic schedules by considering the amount of time we need, and leaving in extra time for those unexpected things that may come up. With the Moon and the Sun together in Virgo, it is important to not just work hard, we also need to work smart. As we start a new beginning, remember that getting things done is all about the approach we use to schedule our time. And each action step we take brings us closer to that goal or dream we have. So keep our dreams strong and faith even stronger on our journey forward.

Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse! The Moon is conjoining with Jupiter and the Sun in Virgo, marking an especially vibrant and intellectual New Moon in the sign of the Virgin. A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks the Sun. Its effects can be felt up to six months after the actual date of the Eclipse and this can be a great time for a mental or physical overhaul. Ruling the 6th House in Astrology, or the House of Health, the Virgo energy is all about maintaining good health and the ability to cope in the face of adversity. Those born under this sign are known for their analytical, observant and precise nature. They may seem overly picky, skeptical or critical at times, but they are generally happy to help others. Being methodical and efficient gives them great joy and they will always work for the greater good. When the Moon is in Virgo, we can feel more inspired to get things done. Whatever area of our life we may be focusing on, no detail will be overlooked as we feel more ready to look deeper into any issue. We can have a more active mind that is always thinking and analyzing, which can be a good exercise for our problem-solving skills. Just make sure to learn to have more trust and faith along the way. Planet Mercury rules the sign of Virgo. Just like the ancient Roman Mythology, the Winged Messenger is a bundle of mental and physical energy. Communication, intellect and awareness lie within Mercury's domain. 

With the Moon forming an opposition to Neptune Rx and Chiron Rx, we get back in touch with our deepest emotions. There is a new way to heal an old situation as we are able to see it from a renewed perspective. Now is not the time to make decisions based on our feelings, but rather try to use our head sensibly. There may be a warning siren going off in our head when we are about to take the same road, so trust our intuition and take another turn. We will flourish in this new direction where we can expand more in a lifelong dream. Sometimes an opposition between planets can also mean that we have been working too hard on a situation and that it's time for us to take some rest. Perhaps we have been a little too uptight, anxious, and holding onto fear lately. The burden of carrying our past around has made us weary. We are repeating a pattern because of unfinished emotions from the past. Trust that we are now guided to let go of worries and anxiety, and that we are being divinely guided and protected on our path. It is safe for us to let go of fear and relax. In fact, we are safer when we are emitting a more peaceful energy because that is what we will attract. Keep our Heart Chakra open. Forgive those who may have hurt us and forgive ourself too. This is our soul's request to us: Let the past go.

The Moon is also forming a trine to Pluto Rx and a sextile to Saturn, and we work in clever ways to shift things in the direction we desire. We could find it easier to stay clear of any difficulty as we discover that with a positive attitude, we will know exactly what to do when the time is right. There truly is no better time to focus on what we want to accomplish and plant new seeds than this New Moon. What we do and say will define the path towards our final goal. Try to focus more on our progress at this time - instead of expecting perfection from ourself. We are on the right path, even if it feels like we are moving rather slowly. Appreciate and love ourself more. Relax the tension in our body. Get a massage or exercise. Dismiss all the things that no longer serve our highest purpose. Find a better balance between work and rest, as well as between the material and the spiritual. Pray for healing and release from all emotional traumas and negative mental patterns. As Saturn makes his transition from Scorpio into Sagittarius, we can safely move forward, knowing that we have learnt our sacred lessons. The purpose has been served in a relationship or situation. There is a blessing in disguise. The Virgo New Moon helps us recognize this blessing in the midst of an apparent challenge. Notice how much better we feel when we can finally shift our perspective and think more positively about ourself and others. This is our new route.
