The Virgo New Moon is stronger and bigger than a normal new moon because it’s a Super Moon. A Super Moon means that the moon is closer to the earth, which makes it appear larger. It intensifies the gravitational pull between the moon and earth, as well as influences your emotions, making it feel like a full moon. The Virgo New Moon is a more intense time to plant new seeds with it being a super moon. The new moon presents an opportunity to begin projects and set new intentions.
Virgo New Moon
The Virgo New Moon takes place on September 17, 2020 at 7:00 am ET (4:00 am PT). The Virgo energy relates to bringing up the wisdom of the earth. Mother Earth provides everything we need. She’s grounding and provides a vessel for healing. It brings to light remedies that support your physical body such as herbs and essential oils.
Virgo rules the mind and the mental axis. She can be analytical, critical and the perfectionist. It’s ruled by Mercury, which is about the mind, thinking and learning. Virgo looks at minute details. It’s a good new moon to review anything that needs focused attention. It’s wise to give yourself breaks when working intently, so you don’t get caught in a mental loop that causes you to over-process. Take time to get out in nature, walk in the grass, hug a tree, smell the flowers and breathe in the fresh air.
Virgo helps you tune into your thoughts. It’s a reminder to be more conscious about what you’re thinking and choices you’re making. Notice when thoughts are spiraling and shift them with affirmations and mantras to align with what you want. With Virgo being a mutable (flexible) sign, it’s important to look at a situation from all sides and be flexible with the process.
The Virgo New Moon is inspiring you towards creating healthy habits. Since Virgo rules the minute details it rules the microbiome in your gut which is responsible for your immune system. Look at the foods you’re eating and how you’re taking care of your gut health. It’s important to look holistically at your body and correct imbalances.
The Virgo New Moon is a time for practical action and creating healthy habits. What area of your life can you clean up a bit? Review your birth chart and determine what astrology House it’s falling in for you. Set your intentions to support the characteristics of your specific birth chart. Is it taking place in your 5th House of creativity and love? Is it in your 9th House of foreign travel? Discovering what House is in Virgo will help you get focused. Then set your intentions to make the most of it!
At the time of the Virgo New Moon there are 6 planets in earth signs – the Sun and Moon in Virgo, Uranus in Taurus, and Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. There is a deep sense of grounding and creating something new in physical form. Of course the old needs to be release to make room for the new. The powerhouse planets in the earth signs are making permanent changes.
The Sun and Moon in Virgo are squaring Saturn in Capricorn. This is helping you see the upgrade that’s been taking place during the year. It’s deeply transforming old patterns and creating a new system. Review your birth chart to see where this is taking place for you. The relationship of these two houses will provide clues as to what is transitioning.
Neptune in Pisces is helping you dream a new reality. Neptune is deeply connected with spiritual growth and the mind of God. It’s highly imaginative and creative. It helps you think about what you want to create and what feels aligned with your values. Neptune amplifies your instincts, intuition, and spirituality. With it in Pisces, there may be a lack direction or indecision about which path to take. The Sun and Moon in Virgo are opposite Neptune in Pisces, providing practical steps and creating a plan that works for your new vision. Tune into your dreams and visualize what it “could” look like. Then anchor your intentions with the Virgo New Moon.
With all of these planets in earth signs there’s a sense of practicality and focus on bringing things into physical form. It’s important to listen to your physical body at this time as it’s a barometer of what’s taking place emotionally. What messages are you receiving? It’s also a good time to get body/energy work to help move out stagnant energy and get into flow as Virgo is deeply connected with energizing the physical body and healing.
Tools for the Virgo New Moon
Essential oils are a powerful tool that support you in releasing emotional blocks, manage stress, open your heart and restore balance. What essential oils are you drawn to use for the New Moon?
Lemon – is uplifting and invigorating. It provides support in focusing with the Virgo New Moon. Lemon helps detoxify physically as well as emotionally. Simply put a drop of oil on your hands and breathe it in or diffuse it to inspire.
Melissa – inspires optimism and seeing the bright side of transitions. It is liberating, helping you break free of old patterns and limitations. As your energy flow increases you’ll manifest more of the good stuff you want. Put a drop on your thumb and apply to the roof of your mouth for focus and brain health.
Cypress – helps you get into the flow of life. Physically it helps move fluids through the body. It helps release stuck emotions and patterns that hold you back, getting you into a healthy and happy flow. Use this on pulse points or on the bottom of your feet.

Journal with the Virgo New Moon
Purify your thoughts and emotions, and create clarity by journaling.
– Gratitude Journal: spend time writing about all the things you’re grateful for and feel the gratitude within your body. Gratitude opens the door to receiving more. When you feel grateful for what you already have, without the thought that something is missing, then the Universe sends you more!
– Forgiveness Journal: The Virgo New Moon is a great time to emotionally dejunk your life. Forgiveness is one of the most powerful practices you can adopt. By holding onto unforgiveness you short circuit your system and keep your vibe low. Write a letter to someone you need to forgive. Tell them how you feel and either send it to them or burn it.
– Joy & Happiness list: Make a list of things that bring you joy. Then every few days do something off your list to help your ego/mind see that you “in-joying” life. Self-care is a great way to raise your vibe, which in turn helps you manifest more.
Use these journal prompts to help you gain clarity and formulate ideas. During the new moon journal “as if” your goals have already been achieved. It’s a very powerful tool to engage your imagination and plant seeds in the subconscious. People that visualize themselves achieving their goals are more likely to achieve them. Visualize yourself making the sell, getting the job, building healthy relationships, being fit and healthy, or whatever your goals are for the new moon.
