What else should I know about the new moon in Virgo?

New moons occur once or twice every month. They open a cosmic door that had been previously closed to you depending upon where they land for your Rising and Sun signs. A new moon not only brings something fresh and new to your life, but gives you the chance to use its energy consciously as you seek to build new patterns and plans that will echo out for six months to a year.

This lunation will be a new moon in Virgo (4 degrees). The energy of this elemental Earth sign will be quite prominent in our lives at this time. Virgo is the sixth zodiac sign on the wheel and aligns with our daily routines, responsibilities and employment. It rules our work-related projects, as well as coworkers, staff and people that report to us. Physical fitness, diet and health are also under this domain. Pets, too, can be spot lit at this time. The new moon will take place at 4:17 A.M. (Eastern) on August 27, 2022.

As for astrological aspects for this lunation, mighty Mars, the planet of sex, passion, drive, anger and war will be in a violent disagreement with the moon. This will bring us an insatiable desire to pursue our passionate desires. Explosive conflicts may manifest if tension has been simmering beneath the radar. This would thus cause tantrums, accidents or violence if we let the fury get the best of us.

However, Mercury, the planetary ruler of this lunation, will be in an excellent alignment with Mars, Jupiter and Pluto, which will bring hope and opportunity despite the volatile energy and emotions we may see flare up. If we focus our mental energy and concentrate on problem solving, we may see progress.

We may also be eager to go big or go home, ready to ignore challenges to instead think outside of the box or indulge in what excites us. Venus will be in a conflict with Saturn and Uranus at this time, likely bringing feelings of restriction and rebellion around relationships. Last to note, Mars will link sweetly with Jupiter, which should further feed the flames of our courage and desire to conquest whatever stands in our paths.

The actions that are taken near this time will likely manifest near the full moon in Virgo (16 degrees) on March 7, 2023.
