New Moon in Virgo: Be of Service to others…

New Moon in Virgo

August 28, 2011

By Maharani Rutan©


OnAugust 28, 2011, the new moon will move into more settled and earthy territories of Virgo.  The journey of the moon will begin the voyage to void to birth of new moon in Virgo at 5 degrees and the voyage will be complete approximately 10:04pm EST and 7:04 PST.

The New Moon signals a time of awakenings. There is a desire to take action and begin something fresh, be it a small change in the way you approach your daily schedules or a whole new path on your journey through life. The energy is right for making impulsive moves and following your instincts. This is the time to act from your heart and trust the developments – take a risk, live in the moment, dance to your own drummer. The New Moon blesses new beginnings, and invites you to take a chance! The chart of the New Moon is the key to influences in the coming lunar month.

The magnificent new moon brings rebirth to early born Virgo’s.  However, Mercury is retrograding and is changing signs in Virgo.  Which means everyone will be affected and since mercury emphasizes mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Pisces and Sagittarius) the changes will come but not as quickly as you would like. Read more about it here.

This moon is particularly zoned for the positive for mutable sign.  Mutable signs will also enjoy this new moon in a wonderful way.  For Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces if any of the houses in your natal chart is within 5 degrees of a mutable sign or that you are born within the first five days into that sign then this moon will magnify you. You should be very excited.

The New Moon is an asking (invocative) time, and a time to formulate what our needs are according to the prospects available (through Virgo this month).The moon in Virgo brings consciousness about all the little minutiae and how we can help and serve others. Enjoy wholesome foods, pure activities and a clean atmosphere. Its time to clear up the clutter your life and make room for healing on a spiritual, physical and psychological level.

There are tendencies to sort emotion out rationally, always perfecting and refining responses. The need to strive for limpidness and healthfulness, realism and hard work are greater significance to may at this time.


There is a higher need to create spiritual energy by helping anyone that needs help. By nurturing others there is a greater inclination to view their own dilemmas and solutions are endless. Mother figures are model of wholesomeness, principles, hard work and realism.

The Moon in Virgo brings a time of sensibleness, investigation, and effectiveness. People may feel more productive and detail-oriented. As a result, this is a good time to finish projects, predominantly smaller scale projects that require organization and attention to detail. Due to Virgo’s association with health, food and fitness may be concerns during this time. Also, people may be introverted as they are engrossed in deliberation and academic pursuits. Because critical views are emphasized, caution needs to be taken to avoid being too decisive or hypercritical.

When the beautiful Venus (in Virgo) says hello to beautiful Jupiter ( in Taurus) there is a sense of sparks flying.  Not only is it about money but it all about learning being in the spotlight and legal issues going outstanding well in your favor.  Oh better yet love is in the air.  Its time to put on that best dress or that outstanding suit because this will be the month to remember mutable signs. But remember nothing is perfect and every chart is unique.  Therefore, I would suggest that you make a personal appointment with my recommended Astrologers, Leslie Hale or Rex and let them open the windows of possibilities and let me be your guide to get you there.


Virgo is ruled by Mercury, as is Gemini. While the Moon is in Virgo, it also a good time for scholarly pursuits, but not it is better for those requiring critical facts rather than original creativity. This is a good time for taking care of any matter that requires meticulous attention. People may become timid and retrieving with Moon passing through Virgo and will tend to be discerning, persnickety and even overly critical at times. Virgo rules the intestines and power of absorption. Many people may feel the urge to clean up their homes at this time that is a good way to channel Virgo energy.

Since, moon in Virgo is Practical, Hard working, Pure, Meticulous, Helpful It is my suggestion that you purchase a Green candle and carve your name through the wick. Anoint the candle with Inspiration oil or Eucalyptus oil and chant the psalm 5. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.

The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Virgo moon is:

“OmEim Saraswatiyei Swaha”

OmI’M Sah-Rah-Swah-Tee-Yei Swah- Ha

This mantra invokes energy for making any projects productive and victorious.

With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I will”, it must be worded “I will be guided.”

Please note I am not an astrologer, rather I am a Vedic reader.  In Vedic readings Astrology is a significant aspect to embark on a higher spiritual ground which allows answers and pathways of new direction.  The philosophies are concentrated on what is here now and how it can be changed by delivering the truth of dilemmas and forks up ahead.  It is my recommendation that you speak to Leslie Hale or Rex prior to phoning me and get latest trends that will either amplify your life or bring needed closures.  I will than guide you into a direction on how to apply changes in your life to make those trends as easy as possible.

Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic or a tarot reader. In my opinion an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle.

Since, every moon cycle represents a change it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. Remember every physic base all their telephone readings on your energy. So remember to ask guidance from the higher power before having a reading so that you can be neutral with your energy.

The clearest answers can be given when energy is at a neutral point. Never get a reading with your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible. 98% of all physics are empathic and clairvoyant so this energy is very important to them as well as you. Always remember every reader has their boundaries as to how far in the future they want to read. This is of their choice; however, reading beyond 6 months is a very hazy situation. Our free will plays an important role in our destiny and we are able to change anything. This is the main reason why many readers do not go beyond the 3 to 6 months mark.

Please note I am not an astrologer and do not claim to be.  I am a Vedic reader.  Vedic readers use the tools of astrology and the energy of the Earth and the recipient of the reading to bring pathways to sublime bliss.  Vedic readers always keep in mind that for every action there is a reaction. If we continue to live life in peace and harmony and allow the spirits to guide us then we bring a pathway to awakenings and change.

Namaste Maharani.
