VERANDAH MAGAZINE STARS BY KIM FALCONER
The New Moon in Virgo is perfect for bringing more ritual into the daily routine, amping up both ‘heart’ and ‘production’. It’s a time to appreciate what is working and feel compassion and reverence for all life, beginning with your own.
This New Moon chart also contains the long anticipated Mars – Saturn conjunction at 17 Scorpio. Think Luke Skywalker (Mars) and Obiwan Kenobi (Saturn). To learn more about this energy, listen to the GVA recording “Mars and Saturn Conjunction”).

Virgo is about about skill development, and the rituals in life that are constantly creating and re-creating our experience of reality. It’s magic to the core that we can all access.
Think – ritual magic, new beginnings, initiation and awareness! You start creating habits that make life better. Now. Read your sun sign below, and the house where you find 2 degrees Virgo. It’s may point to specific ways you can create abundance and well being through ritual in your life.
ARIES/6th house: The New Moon 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?
TAURUS/ 5th house: The creative and playful sphere of the heart is awakened at this New Moon. Consider what rituals 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. Play, and have fun.
GEMINI/ 4th house: The New Moon 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 relatives that could use your expertise? Renewed Feng Shui in the home? De-clutter!
CANCER/ 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 then start putting more conscious awareness on your words. Try scripting it the way you want!
LEO/ 2nd house: New Moon 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 of any critical judgments and embrace the abundance of allowing. Fly free!
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 shower it with positive energy. The trick is to not become totally obsessed. Start a habit of balance in everything you do. Equilibrium.
LIBRA/ 12th house: The New Moon 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!
SCORPIO/ 11th house: The New Moon 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/ 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 recognition and opportunities land, create the perfect balance of work and play.
CAPRICORN/ 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/ 8th house: The Virgo New Moon is a chalice of overflowing opportunity where you create new habits around shared resources. This means anything from finances, money borrowed or loaned, creative projects and even intimate, erotic expression can take on new meaning in your life. Think Renaissance!
PISCES/ 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 New Moon everyone! xKim
