The summer's final New Moon occurs in Virgo on August 27. Here's how it can get us started on a path to self-improvement that results in a better quality of life.
Hey guys, we have the New Moon at 4 degrees of Virgo on August 27th at 1:16 am PST, which would be 4:16 am EST. Check your local time to see when this lunation occurs in your area.
We’re at the last New Moon of the summer season.
But even though this is the final lunation for the summer of 2022, we can begin something productive.
The luminaries are in Conjunction, as they are during New Moon events. During these lunations, the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun, which obscures its light.
In terms of planetary energy, this one is rougher than the Virgo New Moon we had back in 2021.
Due to the Aspects made by the Sun and Moon during this celestial event, our emotions might fluctuate.
Regarding the alignments, to the luminaries, the Sun and Moon will connect with Mars, Jupiter, plus Saturn. We could feel emotionally off-kilter with these kinds of Aspects. Therefore, we might feel self-assured one moment and then filled with self-doubt later. With this mixture, try to balance between confidence and being hard on yourself because this is a contrasting mix of energies.
Mercury is the Chart Ruler for this lunation because it’s the natural placement of Virgo, making it the depositor for the Sun and Moon.
But something else is occurring with this planet at the time of this New Moon.
Mercury happens to be in its Pre-Shadow Retrograde Phase. As a result, we could feel unclear about where to start in terms of creating a fresh chapter in our lives. But this isn’t to say we can’t use this New Moon to begin something; it just means we could feel foggy about our direction.
Also, Mercury is receiving a variety of Aspects that could cause discomfort with our communication and thoughts.
Transit-wise, Mercury is making complicated connections with Venus, the Lunar Nodes, Uranus, and Neptune. With these planets Aspecting one another in a complex manner, there could be moments of tension with others due to misleading and unpredictable behavior.
Because of these alignments, we could look at where changes are needed with our relationships and finances. This New Moon could be the period of working on getting more realistic about our love lives and money, so we aren't continuing the same erratic, self-sabotaging, and deceitful patterns.
Luckily, Mercury will at least make two harmonious connections during this lunation to Mars and Pluto.
Mars and Pluto are generally more complex, but these celestial bodies offer some relief for a change this time.
Energetically, we could feel motivated to execute ideas on the back burner that we now have the stamina to go after, especially with this Mars influence. Even though this is an out of Sign Aspect along with a Waning Trine to Pluto, it helps us clear our minds and focuses on what needs to be transformed in our lives.
Signs that will experience this New Moon more than others will be Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, between 00 to 8 degrees of these placements.
The New Moon In Virgo Vibes
Over the next few days, the vibes we’ll experience will feel triggery.
Ambitious vibes peak on the 27th but then decline by the 29th. We could start this New Moon feeling energetic, then need some downtime.
Intersecting ambition is emotional sensitivity and solitude. With the solitude at its peak on the 28th, we could begin to feel demotivated and need time to recharge. Because emotional sensitivity is mixed in with this while motivation is going down, this could be a day of feeling more triggered than usual.
Emotional sensitivity is mixed in with a smidge of social, romance, and ambitious energy on the 27th. This could make for a day that causes us to feel all over the place mood-wise.
