Nothing says “Virgo season” like getting your priorities in line and suddenly having the urge to rearrange and polish your home. And your best attempt at emulating Marie Kondo will only feel more necessary as we enter the next lunar phase. The September 2021 new moon occurs on September 6 at 8:52 p.m. EST (5:52 p.m. PST) in the down-to-earth and super-planner zodiac sign of Virgo, offering us an opportunity to make constructive changes in our lives so we can channel the most efficient and practical version of ourselves. For some zodiac signs, staring at the looking glass may feel uncomfortable, but for the zodiac signs least affected by the September 2021 new moon, making these changes will feel breezy and effortless.
This upcoming lunation offers us a chance to get make the necessary changes so we can be our ideal selves, making it an auspicious time for those who are willing to accept those changes. Take this as the perfect opportunity to restructure your life so that you can attract the goals and visions you set for yourself. “The new moon in Virgo grounds us in the magic of practicality and the ins and outs of our day-to-day life,” astrologer Ellen Bowles, co-author of Astrology SOS: An Astrological Survival Guide, tells Bustle. “Virgos are ritualistic in their routines, so they understand the small details that make up our daily lives is what creates the bigger picture. This energy is sure to rub off on all zodiac signs.”
What’s more is that Mars, the planet of passion and power will also be chilling in Virgo territory, making a positive trine aspect with Pluto, the planet of rebirth, in no-nonsense Capricorn. In astrology, aspects denote the relationships between the planets. When planets create a trine, you’re in luck. That’s because when planets enter signs in the same element, they usually get along. With these intense planets singing in harmony, we’re reminded of our own passions, strengths, and resiliency. The earth sign influences are urging us to remain grounded and committed to our goals, ultimately helping us to step into our power.
