New Moon In Virgo: Healing Wounds And Changing The Tide

The new moon on Wednesday September 20, 2017 is in the healing sign of Virgo. The new moon in September continues the theme of change that began with the total solar eclipse last month. The changes this time will be more like minor adjustments to your long-term goals or how you get there.

The September 2017 new moon will remind you of the most painful wounds you have suffered. In order to move forward you must begin focus on the healing process. This will involve adapting to unexpected changes or making adjustments to your long-term hopes and dreams.

This will be a complicated Moon, defined by what’s missing or broken.

And yet, the challenge of this Moon will be to accept that when it comes to our life, it’s not perfect. It’s not going to be neatly wrapped up. So you’ll have to make the best of things, while embracing the messy moment or itchy sense that you don’t have everything you need.

Since the new moon occurs in Virgo, and this is the sign the Mercury retrograde began in back in mid-August, this can be a good time to bring everything full circle and take advantage of opportunities that were put aside mid-August. Virgo is highly productive and efficient, so get working, get organized, make lists, and focus on the small tasks, chores, and projects that need your attention.

Virgo can be good for paying closer attention to the details, being more practical, and being of service to others. The more we do, the more we want to do- just make sure you’re not pushing yourself over the limit and causing unnecessary stress.

This new moon will be opposite Chiron in Pisces, the asteroid of wounds and healing. Because of this, we may be dealing with some collective wounds that need to be worked on and healed.

The New Moon’s solution won’t be straightforward. Maybe part of the fix will be the acceptance that you were wrong – you acknowledge the error, then move forward.  It will be tricky to find a balance between healing release and blind delusion. Tread carefully.

This New Moon will create a sense of urgency. There may be an anxious scramble to react as quickly as possible when things go awry, and make it all better. But you won’t be able to fix everything. You’ll have to react, yes. But you’ll have to do so thoughtfully, without losing sight of the details. And, without straining to make it perfect…as Virgo energy so often learns.

As I said, it’s a complicated Moon. To sum up: identify the key problem, keep your eye on the details, then work to maintain a balance between doing the best you can and accepting that you can only do so much.
