The New Moon is initiating a cycle in Virgo on Monday, September 6th a
8:52pm ET. The new moon is a time of new beginnings and initiations. This means it is an ideal time to set intentions aligned with Virgo rulerships including work, critical thinking, and physical health. More on Virgo rulerships below.
Virgo is mutable and that means change. When a sign is mutable it signifies it is the last month of the season and that change is coming. In this case we are at the end of Summer and Autumn will be here at the start of the Libra season in about two weeks on September 22nd. I have already noticed one of the first signs of autumn, brown leaves on the ground. Have you taken noticed of any signs of Autumn in your neighborhood?
Virgo is the sign of work, duty, and responsibility to self and others. When we are under the influence of Virgo there is a need to analyze our thoughts, feelings, and actions so that we can function better. One way we can do this is by setting up routines for exercise, eating healthy foods, and having organized spaces.

Virgo Tarot Spread
Every New Moon I shuffle my tarot deck, pull a card for each of the questions below, and jot down my first impressions upon seeing the cards. The tarot spread provides insight into what is currently growing, at fruition, and asking to be released in my life. In addition, it provides a framework for which to nourish the things I want and to reflect so I may make adjustments in my personal life journey.
What is the seed of the Virgo New Moon? (use card number 5 from your Leo New Moon Tarot Spread, or start fresh this moonth).
What begins to grow as the moon waxes in Scorpio?
What peaks as the moon becomes full in Aquarius?
What do you let go of as the moon wanes in Gemini?
What is the seed of the upcoming moonth in Virgo? (use this card as card number 1 for the New moon in Virgo tarot spread next new moon).
I like to think of this as a spiral spread as I go back to it weekly when the moon changes phase from new moon to waxing first quarter moon, the full moon, the waning third quarter moon, and finally a few days before the next new moon at the dark moon phase. The Virgo New Moon Tarot and Astrology Workbook provides all the information in this blog post, all six tarot cards associated with Virgo, the tarot and astrology wheel showcasing where all 78 cards fall on the zodiac, additional tarot spreads for each of the moon phases referenced above, plus much, much, more.
Virgo New Moon Circle
If you want to discuss your tarot spread in a sacred circle join the Virgo New Moon Circle on Monday, September 6th at 7pm ET. It is a space that supports you in manifesting your intentions. It also awakens you to your blind spots that may be hindering your progress.
Sharing in a new moon circle creates a powerful force that supports, embraces, and inspires thoughtful speaking and deep listening for lasting change and transformation.
We will discuss the energy and rulerships of Virgo and discuss how it is showing up in our lives. One of the things I like most about sharing in a new moon circle is how one can either be a mirror, opposite, or compliment of what others are going through at the moment making for deep reflection and introspection.
