September New Moon Will Inspire Us to Reach for the Stars

The September 9 New Moon is happening in Virgo. Whether you realize it or not, the moon is probably affecting you in some way. The moon goes through stages, which anyone can notice simply by observing it each night. The moon’s appearance changes each night depending on its cycle and these cycles can affect us all, even if some people don’t realize it. 

As we come out of this summer in which six planets were in retrograde, we are all feeling a little unstable and foggy. The energy of Virgo will help us drain that lingering brain fog and instability.

Virgo is the most perceptive, visually sensitive and resourceful signs in the zodiac. It’s season started on August 23 and will last until September 22. If you’re a Virgo – happy birthday! If you’re not a Virgo, get ready for a month of powerful and intense energy. Virgo is a sign of purity and highest values that teaches us to maintain personal integrity and intentions. Virgo is focused, efficient, sharp, and detail oriented. She can find out how to get that mystery smell out of your carpet, which frames are crooked, and which light bulbs are out. 

A new moon always means the time for a new chapter, a fresh start, letting go of the old and making space for something new. It generally brings a positive energy that we should all welcome and take advantage of.  Astrologer Lisa Stardust shares: “The Virgo new moon marks a hopeful new beginning, which may be hard for some because, in order to start fresh, something has to end. This new moon, in true Virgo fashion, forces us to clean up our act, moving forward toward a truthful new beginning.”

What this means is to identify what is no longer serving you, and what you need to do in order to move forward.

New Moon represents a New Cycle. The new moon is a time of new beginnings and change. It’s the time when we usually feel motivated and encouraged to start something new and achieve our goals.  This means that when we set our intentions during September New Moon, we need to make sure they are aligned with our values. suggests that the new moon rising in Virgo means that this is not only the time to start something new, but also the time to identify and let go of problems we’ve been experiencing in order to find some practical solutions. During this new moon, you’ll have a chance to think about what you need to keep so you can focus on what really matters to you. This is also a time where you can focus on sharpening your skills and think about the life-work-balance and self-care.

This means that you will have the opportunity to do something really great for yourself!

This September New Moon comes 3 days before Jupiter sextile Pluto. It’s a great opportunity to take advantage of the energy from the new moon to do something constructive because this is a time when it could pay off in a big way. This new moon may help you feel more optimistic, self-confident and focused on the future goals.

New Moon in Virgo – Focus on Self-Care

Virgo is an intellectual problem solver, fixer, organizer, and analyst. The sign has a true desire for everything to be as perfect as possible. Other qualities of Virgo is a healer and humanitarian. AstroStyle shares: “Virgo is the sign of selfless service,” so when a Virgo’s penetrating eye for detail notices a flaw or inefficiency, they want to fix it because it’s genuinely for the greater good.

The new moon symbolizes beginnings, so if you want to align your own life with the lunar cycle, it’s a good time to begin new projects and endeavors. Over two weeks after a new moon, the light of the moon will be increasing until it reaches it’s the brightest potential – a full moon.

The energy of having a new moon in Virgo this September brings a slightly different opportunity. According to, a Virgo new moon “is different in that we don’t plant new seeds; instead, we try to figure out what to do with what we’ve harvested.”

So rather than starting a new project, look at how you can utilize or repackage what you already have. It’s still a new beginning, but there’s no need to start from scratch — intelligent and efficient Virgo wants you to work with what you already have for its new moon. In simple terms, it says: turn your own lemons into lemonade.

Every Project Must Have a Solid Plan

Astrologer Jennifer Racioppi shares, “The Virgo new moon calls us back to a deliberate mind that has its eye on the details.”. Virgo is a sensible and grounded earth sign. As per North Star Astrology, “The New Moon in Virgo is the time to listen to your ‘gut’ instincts,”  “Stop wasting mental energies worrying about what you can not change … analyze how your problem-solving skills can best be put to use.”

So how can you best take advantage of this new moon? Focus in on Virgo’s areas of influence:

  • Focus on humanitarian work, career, health, and service-oriented efforts.
  • Organize your workspace or office so you can channel your energy toward your career or business goals most effectively.
  • Take charge of your health by cleaning up your diet, creating your exercise routine, or establishing better mental health habits.
  • Get your living space in order. Virgo pays attention to detail, and house cleaning is an excellent opportunity to work through Virgo transits. When your home or office is orderly and clean, you’ll have more mental clarity and bring efficiency in other areas of your life. A clean house can do wonders for your mental and emotional health.
  • Bring excellence into your existing projects. Reevaluate all that you have, acknowledge, and make a plan to build something new and better.

The Hood Witch advises that Virgo new moons are a time when “women are mentally very active, however, there may be tendencies to focus on excessive criticism of oneself as well as others.” Try to let go of Virgo seriousness and remember to lighten up. Use this Virgo’s critical eye to uplift yourself and others, instead of being overly critical and “too perfect”.

Take Advantage of Virgo New Moon

If you want to utilize Virgo’s energy, allocate some extra hours for yourself this September, practice patience with friends and family, and adopt new personal self-care habits.

Practice Self-Care

As you are on the way out of the summer season, a new self-care routine will help you transition into fall. Taking self-care seriously this fall is going to be essential in building a strong foundation for the year ahead. Try a new experience, a new type of exercise, experiment with new foods that rebuild your mind and body. The best start for Virgo season is to get a refreshed good night step.

Connect with the Earth

While you might have enjoyed a summer experience, you’ll need to ground your energy in order to flourish this Fall. Take your shoes off and put your feet in the sand, water, or dirt, connect your body to Mother Earth in some way. Whether this means for you, walking barefoot, drumming, or meditating, it’s important to practice grounding as Virgo season invites us to connect to our beautiful planet.

Unleash Your Creativity

Engage in a project that inspires you and notice how this will expand your life. Be patient – positive effects of this creative energy might not be immediately noticeable. Channeling your energy into new, exciting ventures will fuel your passion. The Virgo energy will keep you focused and committed, which is what you need to stay inspired and on track.

Make Money and Save for the Rainy Day

The Virgo season will help you increase your income. While you might be tempted to spend the money on a new fall wardrobe, consider the future and save or invest your money wisely. Create a good start for the rest of the year by being practical and mature when it comes to your finances and make sure that you allocate money for a rainy day and emergencies.

Switch Roles

While you might be encouraged to be a leader, remember that there’s always something to learn from other people. Take a break from constantly showing the way, and listen to what the people are saying. If you’re the one who’s always doling out advice to your friends and co-workers, give them a chance to return the favor. Don’t be afraid to ask a friend or a relative for advice or for their opinion. This reversal of your primary role will help to strengthen your relationships and creates stronger connections with other people. There’s so much to learn from others, and asking them for advice is a great way to show how much you value their experience and wisdom.

Create Deeper Connections

Virgo’s energy will help you nurture your relationships. If you’re not in a relationship, you may feel inspired to have a partner! As Virgo’s energy will help with increasing your focus and efficiency at work, you’ll have more time for romance. While it can be challenging to be there for your partner and also carrying for yourself, this month it will make it easier to do both.

If you allow yourself to learn from Virgo season’s influences, you can take the spirit with you into the rest of the year.
