Welcome to the season of the Eclipses. Until the new moon, rest, relax, repose. Nothing has to be decided yet, especially with the eclipse nigh. Then, expect new beginnings and adventure! All the planets are operating against the backdrop of Mercury retrograde until the 22nd. Two steps forward, one back? Maybe, but you don’t want to stress about it.

The best strategy, and you do want a strategy, is to plan, brainstorm and negotiate, ready to launch and action your new inspirations late September or October. Meanwhile, it’s the perfect time to bring more ritual into the daily routine, amping up both ‘heart’ and ‘practicality’. Appreciate what is working and feel compassion and reverence for all life, beginning with your own.

Virgo is about skill development, and the rituals in life that are constantly creating and re-creating our experience of reality. Think – ritual magic, new beginnings, initiation and awareness. You start creating habits that make life better, for you.

Read your ‘solar houses’ below, and the house where you find 9 degrees Virgo.


AriesARIES/6th house:The New Moon Eclipse in your house of health is the perfect time to start supportive new habits in the realm of diet, exercise and daily ritual. Think of your body as your best friend. What do you feed her? How do you keep her fit and active? When do you let her rest? Play? Explore? Connect? Amp up the self-care.

TaurusTAURUS/ 5th house: The creative and playful sphere of the heart is awakened at this New Moon Eclipse. Ask what rituals do you have in place around your artistic expression? Is it haphazard, random or so strict there’s no room to breathe? Set into motion some healthy ways to connect to your inner child. Make them fun!

GeminiGEMINI/ 4th house: The New Moon Eclipse lights up your home, family and emotional security sector. What are you doing to feather your nest, metaphorically and literally? Ask how ritual can improve this area of life. Regular family dinners? Time with rels that could use your expertise? Renewed Feng Shui in the home? Go big!

CancerCANCER/ 3rd house: This is the perfect time to create new habits around self-talk, verbal communication and written or spoken expression, teaching and leaning. Notice how you connect socially around familiar haunts, and then start putting more conscious awareness on your thoughts. Remember, they turn into things!

LeoLEO/ 2nd house: New Moon Eclipse amps up your house of money, a representation of your inner core values and self-esteem. This is excellent for boosting feelings of self-worth and setting in place new habits of care, respect and generosity. Let go the critical and embrace the abundance of

non-judgment. So freeing!

Virgo VIRGO/first house: This is your ‘birthday’ New Moon and ideal for starting any new project that has your ‘heart’s desire’ in it. Most likely opportunities are rolling in. You get to pick your favorite and lavish it with positive energy. The trick is to not become totally obsessed. Start a habit of balance in everything you do.

LibraLIBRA/ 12th house: The New Moon Eclipse in Virgo is your ‘Dream Moon’ as it activates your unconscious mind. Up comes all the buried treasures in the form of inspiration, epiphanies, synchronicities and head over heels love interests. Treat this like a preview of coming attractions. Nurture, respect, revel and enjoy!

ScorpioSCORPIO/ 11th house: The New Moon Eclipse in the house of friends is a wonderful opportunity to bring healthy habits of connection into being. Your powers of discernment are heightened, helping you know intuitively which birds of a feather you want to flock with. Remember, to have a friend, be a friend. Spend some time there!

Sagittarius SAGITTARIUS/ 10th house: Attention to detail and a feeling of new beginnings lights up your career sector. This is where you put new habits into place. If you’ve been overworking, pull back. If it’s been hard to focus, you practice new skills. As support and opportunities land, create the perfect balance of work and play.

CapricornCAPRICORN/ 9th house: This is your ‘Exploration Moon’ as a thirst for the unknown activates every cell in your body. What you thought was a closed door, a limitation or block, opens wide and you walk on through. The habit of open-mindedness can be developed now with very little effort. Easy breezy enlightenment time!

Aquarius AQUARIUS/ 8th house: The Virgo New Moon Eclipse is a chalice of overflowing opportunity where you create new habits around shared resources. This means anything from finances, borrowed or loaned funds, creative projects and even intimate, erotic expression can take on new meaning in your life. Think Renaissance!

piscesPISCES/ 7th house: This is your ‘Relationship Moon’ where you can examine your personal one-to-ones and put into place more supportive, loving and caring habits. Old unconscious behaviors dissolve, replaced by mutual respect and reverence for life with another. Boundaries improve creating more room for unconditional love.

It takes 21 days to start a new habit. Let’s set fabulous intentions now!

Have a wonderful, ritual filled, New Moon Eclipse!
