The New Moon in Virgo is a time to get your life back in order.

If you’re in Australia or otherwise Down Under, it’s the end of winter – what better time to get things sorted out, after the months of winter hibernation.

And if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere? Guess what? Miraculously that works too!

In the north, the summer may be over but the new school year has just begun and anyone with kids knows that this is THE time to start planning out the year ahead.

Funny how astrology works, right?

The New Moon is the time to set your intentions for the month ahead. By getting clear on what you want, you will effectively be sending out arrows of desire that cannot help but start to manifest. Of course you also need to work towards your dreams. For help getting started with your New Moon wishes, intentions and commitments, pick up my 100% New Moon Wishing Guide here.

The New Moon in Virgo is also the ideal time to do all the activities listed below. If you want to live in tune with the planet, have a think about how well (or not) you’re doing with everything listed. Are you on top of things? And if not, are you willing to make an effort to get sorted?

◗ 1. Take an inventory Pay attention to the details. Do an inventory of your life. Work out what’s working and what isn’t. Virgo has a reputation for being picky – too right! The image for the sign of Virgo recalls the people who once used their powers of discernment literally to sort the wheat from the chaff – back in the days of people-skilled agriculture. So use the energies this month to think about where in your life you need to make changes. Pay particular attention to your daily routines.

◗ 2. Be of service If you’re on the New Age path, you’ll have heard teachers reminding us all that the best work is when we’re of service to others. Virgo is all about being of service, so use this month to consider whether you’re being of service to others. Think about what’s going on at work, especially. How can you help other people? Service with a smile will attract karmic Brownie points. Easing a colleague’s workload, or offering to pick up someone else’s kid after school… It’s the little things.

◗ 3. Be healthy Virgo has a strong alternative health theme. The New Moon in Virgo is a wonderful time to think about your diet and your daily habits. Much has been written about the importance of morning and evening routines, so how do yours look? Virgo is a fine habit-former, so start some beneficial new routines this month – be it morning or evening yoga, daily meditations, nutrient-packed breakfast smoothies, earlier nights or whatever – and see how long you can keep them going.

◗ 4. Avoid nitpicking Are you being too critical? Use the New Moon in undeniably picky Virgo to assess this. Love and criticism, for example, don’t go together so make sure you haven’t allowed yourself to get into the habit of finding flaws in the people you love. Don’t do it to yourself either! Doing your best is one thing, but perfectionism is another. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Do as you would be done by – a very Virgo way to be.

◗ 5. Get organized Virgo is like the part of us that’s ‘together’. In other words, the part that’s organized and punctual. Catch up with paying bills, filing paperwork and tidying up when the New Moon is in Virgo.
