The sun and moon has come together in earthy and diligent Virgo (exact August 27th at 10,17 AM CET) and her keen eye for details and perfectionistic tendencies, makes a Virgo new moon the perfect time to take care of practical concerns and the details of everyday life.
However, as the time of the new moon should rather be a time of introspection and contemplation, helping you connect with your own Self, do not allow yourself to fall down Virgo‘s perfectionistic slippery slope making you overly focused on your flaws, which will only leave you feeling guilty and stressed.
Instead, as the light from the moon diminishes and you once again find yourself in the dark stillness of a moonless sky; take some time to see the beauty of imperfection and balance out Virgo’s perfectionistic nature with lots of compassion and self-love ♡.
Draw upon the grounding and healing energies of the earthy sign of Virgo. Connect with the light of your inner Guide, and let the new moon lead you on your own healing journey.
If you have the courage to go there, the darkness of the new moon can bring you to the depths of your soul, and give you the opportunity to heal some of your most painful wounds. Being the last of the personal signs (Aries through Virgo), Virgo urges us to clean up our inside as well as our outside before we start our journey through the next six signs of the zodiac, representing the highs and lows of partnership, family, and society (Libra through Pisce).
You cannot move forward in life until you have healed your past, so don’t wait. Ground yourself through Virgo’s earthy energy, connect to your center, then take the leap, trusting that you will be fine.
Be patient with yourself and treat yourself with loving kindness no matter what comes to the surface throughout this process. Give your wounded child a safe place to heal. Virgo‘s energy can be perfectionist, but it’s important to remember that even though it may all feel messy, messy does not mean broken or not good enough. It only means it’s time to tidy up a bit.
Take a moment in stillness, placing your hands over your heart, connecting to your heart center; then ask yourself what’s the most nurturing thing you can do for yourself at this time? Celebrate yourself, your life and your body, and make an effort to schedule time for the things you love. Get really clear on what you need in your life to feel happy and healthy, then make your everyday into your own personal healing ritual.
If you find your body resisting turning all the attention towards yourself, and your own needs, know that this is natural. We’re so used to always lend everyone else a helping hand and make sure everyone has what they need, that we may end up feeling like a failure when we don’t have the energy to put others first anymore. But don’t feel bad about taking care of yourself first and to make your own healing a priority. This Virgo new moon is asking you to fill up your own cup first this time. Remember that an empty cup has nothing to give!
And unless you start to accept yourself for who you truly are, how can you expect others to? Let go of your inner critic, and start to act towards yourself from a place of love and compassion. Be patient with yourself and your journey, knowing that the most powerful steps you can take on your healing journey is to learn to love and accept yourself and your life as it is.
If you’re feeling lost, stop and retrace your steps until you find your light again. It might take minutes, hours, days or even years, but do it. The time has come to drop your mask and let the universe know that you are ready to step up to your highest path.
New Moon Blessings ♡
MY UPCOMING EVENTS:

MYSTICA 100h Advanced Yoga Teacher Training
The Magic begins on October 26th
Have you been thinking of expanding your way of teaching or practicing yoga, in a way that meets with the mystical? Do you feel called to weave mysticism and rituals into your yoga classes? To practice and teach more in harmony with our Earth’s and our own bodies’ rhythms and cycles? Welcome to the Advanced Yoga Teacher Training that embodies and honors the seasons, the cycles, and the magic of the phases – both in nature and in our bodies.
As the seasons change, so do we. We humans are intricately a part of nature, of Mother Earth and her cycles, and as such we are not meant to have the same focus or the same yoga practice throughout the year. This is what inspired us to create MYSTICA: A 100h advanced vinyasa-based yoga teacher training, which brings in the seasons, the cycles, and the magic of the phases – both in nature and in our bodies.
