August is astro-rich. The summer month will be host to not one, but two new moons, giving it double the astronomical importance and twice astrological depth. And, of course, giving us two chances to connect to our inner most selves, as new moons are the ultimate prompt for ~realizing things~. On August 1 (though it was July 31 in some time zones) we experienced a new moon in Leo, and now, on August 30, we'll be treated to a new moon in Virgo. If you know anything about the intense energy that is Virgo, you know just how crucial meditations for the August 2019 new moon are going to be. While the new moon in Leo might have empowered us to be brave and confront our fears and hang ups, the Virgo new moon is going to give us a kick in the pants to get more serious about personal lives, our work and our futures, whether we want it or not.

The summer months give us some leeway to be a little bit more lax than usual with our lives — mentally and physically. Up until now, we've been getting by just fine with messy rooms and untidy minds, but all of that is going to change when the new moon rises dark in the sky in Virgo. That earth sign energy is going to illuminate all of the things in our lives that are out of place and make them impossible to ignore. Aka, if you've been taking it easy this summer, you're about to have a lot on your plate. Here are some meditations that will help you sort through the emotional and physical messes that you have ahead of you, so that you can move into the peak of Virgo season with a clear mind and space.
