The semester is (hopefully) off to a great start, but on Monday, Sept. 6, we have another new beginning: At 6:52 p.m. MT, we have our first New Moon of the Fall semester, and this one takes place in orderly, organized earth sign Virgo.
If you haven’t heard through the astrology grapevine, New Moons are revitalizing. They are times for initiating new projects, calling on new opportunities, and starting afresh. Each New Moon carries with it a set of themes, and the themes of the 2021 Virgo New Moon center on order, efficiency and clarity.
Uranus, the Great Awakener, is in Taurus and in harmonious contact with the New Moon; and Venus in Libra and Jupiter in Aquarius are also buddying up in the sky.
While these planets and this New Moon will affect all zodiac signs to some degree, the following four zodiac signs will benefit the most.
- Virgo ♍
It’s not every day that you get a New Moon in your sign, so take advantage of it. Not that you aren’t planning on doing so; you plan just about everything in your life. Well, how about this for your planner: a new beginning. That is what the New Moon brings. It’s in your 1st House of the Self, so all matters of you– your physical appearance, your aims and goals, your passions –come into focus. They also beckon a fresh start.
Uranus puts extra emphasis on starting afresh. He urges you to expand your world view by exploring different cultures or activities. Remember: New beginnings only happen when we have the courage to step out of our comfort zone. Maybe this is something as simple as altering your routine or letting yourself do nothing (for once). Either way, the Venus-Jupiter trine reminds you that self-indulgence isn’t a sin…
- Gemini ♊
Though you are usually clever, your imagination could use a tune-up. The 2021 Virgo New Moon helps you do just that. Sitting in your 4th House, the lunation asks you to thoroughly examine your lifestyle and habits. It also presents to you an opportunity to clear away the old habits preventing you from being more productive. This will likely manifest as a minor room renovation; really, any sort of reorganizing of your personal space benefits you.
Uranus further awakens your creativity by shocking you out of any ruts; though this may take the form of a nightmare or vivid dream. Either way, you’re inspired again! Good thing too. The summer was rough for you, artistically speaking. But not anymore. Words flow like lava. Bonus: the trine between Venus and Jupiter further stirs your creative juices, while also boosting your confidence. If only you could maintain this level of efficiency forever…
- Sagittarius ♐
To the untrained eye, it often looks like you are randomly shooting arrows hoping to hit a target. On the 6th, you might just shoot a bull’s eye. You’re hustling with a purpose because you are itching for more responsibility and more success. This is because the New Moon is sitting pretty in your 10th House of career and professional dealings. So, apply for that internship or job; or, talk to your boss about a promotion.
Opportunities for professional growth are endless, and Uranus may bring one seemingly out of thin air. There could be a caveat: one of these Uranus-sent jobs/internships may require some adaptability in your day-to-day routine. Don’t sweat, though: movement is what you were made for. Also, the trine between Venus and Jupiter brings a network of new and pre-existing friends who are more than willing to help you on your way to the top…
- Pisces ♓
Unlike Virgo, your attention on this 2021 September New Moon is targeted at other people. Highlighting your 7th House of partnerships, the New Moon creates an opportunity to heal, nurture, or grow your pre-existing partnerships– be they personal or professional. The seed for a new relationship may be planted. Maybe you decide to download a dating app; maybe that cute barista at Dutch Bros. finally asks you out; or maybe you– gasp –ask someone else out.
This is an uncharacteristic behavior for you, but with Uranus in the mix on this Virgo New Moon, just about anything can happen. For you, Pisces, this “anything” will have to do with like-minded peeps who share the same life vision as you. Will one of these peeps turn out to be your soulmate? Tough to say, but the trine between Venus and Jupiter certainly sings the tune of romance. For you, at least…
