New Moon in Virgo on 5 October 2021

Helping others succeed is the theme of the lunar cycle in sidereal Virgo, 5 October – 3 November 2021. The energy of the new moon will guide the collective to use their time wisely.

Virgo is the feminine side of Mercury that enjoys analyzing details before taking on a task to master. The goal is to share the knowledge gained so others benefit.

This lunar cycle will be a potent time for artists, writers, healers, and others that use their hands to create products for the marketplace. The key is to maintain the mind and body when dealing in commerce. Others will need to be conscientious consumers.

Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Mars will be in Virgo during the new moon. As the natural ruler of the sixth house, Virgo is connected to daily tasks, well-being, and competition. Being overly critical, obsessing over tasks, and becoming exhausted are signs of imbalance. Additionally, this may activate anger, arrogance, and self-centeredness. 

Venus transits Scorpio the entire month of October, where it will not be comfortable. Relationships can become strained or end. Decide on which battles need to be fought.

Spiritual practices like Sun Salutation and ‘taco breathing’ can ground energy, reduce excessive heat in the body, and shift mood. Sharing your expertise with others is a way to use this energy externally.
