There is a new moon on September 9th, 2018. This new moon takes place in the sign of Virgo. Virgo nature has a mind of its own. The Virgo nature is very reflective, analytical, and forthcoming. Not only is the new moon in Virgo, but there are many planets currently transitioning through earth signs.
New moons are a time for planting seeds, new beginnings, and truly gaining a better understanding of whatever it is you are supposed to be learning / growing from. With that being said, new moons can be a time of a lot of fear and scarcity. When new beginnings end and new doors open, often times it requires for something to end and for other doors to be shut. Stay patient with yourself and constantly remind yourself of your strength, I promise this is nothing you can’t handle.
This new moon is a really important time to stay close to yourself, it’s a time to be more concerned with your relationship with your own life rather than other people and their life. So often we are faced with this battle of trying to balance our own boundaries + expectations of how we want our life to be and how we want our relationships to feel and look, while simultaneously trying to embrace acceptance for what is and focus inward.
Of course, love, communication, compassion, and empathy make the world go round. In fact, those are the things that make the world survivable. However, it’s important to remember that no one owes us anything nor do we owe anyone else anything.
This new moon is a time to learn to be unapologetic for your life.
If you need time, take time. If you need space, have space.
If you don’t want to talk to any of your old friends from college, don’t.
If you want to distance yourself from family members without a lengthy explanation, you are entitled to do so.
If you want to go to the gym at midnight when you have work the next day at 8am, no one has the power to stop you.
This new moon you are being asked to take control of your life, to really make it your life.
Take this new moon and use it to your advantage. Take this new moon and really dive into your own life. Figure out what works for you, figure out what you want in your space, figure out how you want your world to look like. Take this time to heal, to learn, to grow, and to create – without giving anyone an explanation, and without feeling guilty for it. This is your time to start being unapologetic with your life.
