Purge And Purify: New Moon In Virgo Rituals…

What to do when the luminaries meet in the Maiden's sign?

It’s Virgo Season and so the New Moon naturally resets in Virgo. Read your horoscope here and use the stars on this day of still, dark and quiet to really work the celestial weather…

Here are my top 5 tips!

1. Make Lists, Pare Back, And Quietly Set Your Intentions…


Virgo is the analyst extraordinaire of the zodiac.

Governed by clever Mercury, she is an expert list-writer and adept at getting everything planned within an inch of its life.

The New Moon is when Sun is joined by the Moon in this sign, a wonderful day for getting ORGANISED, setting up a schedule, putting pen to paper, making checklists, tick boxes and all.

Writing down your wishes will intensify and supercharge them!

It’s also a day to quiet the mind, seek solitude, and introspection.

Note that in the Tarot, the card for Virgo is the Hermit.

Take a break to meditate on this card and its meaning: soul-searching, seclusion, being alone, and relying on your inner guidance.

Gazing upon this card we see a lone man with his lantern held high, a guiding light with a six-pointed star – a symbol of wisdom. His long staff is a sign of authority, stability and endurance, he is alone in mountainous terrain (like Sean Connery!) 

He is humble in his simple cloak. We too can take on his earnest nature; retreat into the sacred, and draw your attention inward to find the inspiration you seek, deep within.

The sixth sign in the Zodiac, Virgo is known as a self-sufficient sign, and the Hermit reminds us that we have everything we need to answer our questions within ourselves.

Turn away from consumerism and excess, stripping back to quiet solitude to evaluate with authenticity, integrity, and purity. Like the Hermit, turn away from all that doesn’t serve you to focus on what’s truly useful

2. Think ‘An Apple A Day’; Refresh Your Health, Wellness, And Overhaul Fitness Goals…

Virgo is the sign most in tune with all round body intuition – they rule the stomach, intestine and ‘gut instincts’. Read more in astrology and the body.

Such a co-incidence that Fiona Apple was born on a Virgo New Moon, with Mercury here too! Listen to her music on this day of darkness.

“I was so self-critical. I still am, but it’s not as bad anymore.”

Take time for self-love, and self-care.

This is an awesome time for us all to set good intentions for an active healthy lifestyle, and to look after the good bacteria in our tummies!

Set positive intentions around the little daily rituals, including:

  • Drinking more water
  • Taking more steps (or the stairs instead of the lift!)
  • Getting more fresh air
  • Eating better
  • Brushing and flossing – every day!

3. Be Of Service – Help Those In Need!


4. Clear And Clean Away The Clutter… Target The Little Things – Every Last Speck Of Dust…

With the Luminaries in earth you’ll want to get practical, and give yourself the best chance possible

The dark moon is a wonderful time to clean house and let go of extra baggage – release what no longer serves you, Stargazer!

‘Mama’ Cass Elliot, Born September 19th 1941, Sun, Moon, Neptune and North Node in Virgo…

You can detox your wardrobe and purge kitchen cupboards, scrub the floors and sweep away the debris of the past…

“I never trashed a hotel room or did drugs”

Sean Connery, Born 25th August 1930, Sun, Moon, Mercury And Neptune In Virgo…

Just before the new moon (and on the new moon itself) we can let go and release, ready to make room for a fresh start and new cycle.

This is an excellent time for manifestation and intention setting, considering what seeds of intention you’d like to plant now, and see come to fruition on the Full Moon in Virgo.

Flavoured with Virgo vibes, the new moon carries a particularly organised, methodical feeling.

So here are some beautiful ways to slow down and honour the new moon… Mark the Moment!

5. Purge & Purify; Get Orderly And Organised – Time For A Neat Trim?

If life – and your locks are getting a bit unruly consider a trim.

Just ahead of the New Moon is the best time to let go – in a neat and tidy fashion.

This is the perfect lunar phase – and zodiac sign – for a wax, pluck and general brush up.

Sixth sign of the zodiac, Virgo tidies up after the Leo party.

Virgo is helpful and keen, with an earthy goodness that’s your health consultant cum secretary.

Be helpful to others to let this Virgo energy flow and multiply – into Action, Virgo Style!
