New Moon in Virgo
In the past two weeks haven’t you been feeling like enough is enough already? The Sun and Moon together in perfectly poised Virgo is amplified by excessive Jupiter. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, so many things feel magnified and intense this month.
Virgo is the pattern keeper and if we let her, she will show us the energetic patterns in our life. There is a place for everything and everything has its place. So let go and trust the Virgo energy to take care of life’s little details – she knows how all the puzzle pieces fit together even when it's not clear to us.
Virgo’s gift is the quality of discernment. Use that Virgoan discernment constructively by identifying, letting go and releasing any thought patterns, possessions or people in your life who are holding you back from your deepest desires. Only the best will do for you now.
Open your closets and cabinets. It’s time to clean house, out with the old!
