Ideas, Innovations, and Inspirations: Moon in Virgo September 2013


New Moon in Virgo

September 05, 2013

By Maharani Rutan©

It has been a tough August for many of us and a sign of relief for those mutable signs is on its way.  On September 05, 2013 the new moon will enter Virgo at 13 degrees depending upon the orb.  The blanket which covers the moon will happen in the early hours of EST at approximately 7:36 am, 4:36 PST and 11:36GMT respectively.

The last time the moon was at 13 degrees, or close to it, was on September 08, 2010 when it sat nicely in Virgo at 15degrees.  Though auspicious to many western views, this can bring about many dramatic events when Mercury will be entering Libra and Venus in Scorpio.

Mercury will be entering Libra just few days after the new moon; on September 09, 2013. Many have tried very hard not to create conflicts at the end of August and remained as peaceful as possible taking the non-confrontational avenues. However, when mercury is in Libra all those efforts may be undone.  Where communication is the trouble that is being avoided, balance and peace may not come easily, and trying to find balance may be very difficult.  This is because Virgo says mean what you say and act upon it.  Make sure kindness and gestures continue during this period but don’t butter too much since it can be looked as flattery or unrealistic.  Finding the balance is the key to this transit.


When Venus enters Scorpio on September 12, 2013, people may become very self-absorbed in areas of warmth. Possessiveness is the love with them.  This often can turn into a love – hate relationship which is very inductive of love. This type of energy can be very cynical, temperamental and based only upon sexuality or physical attraction which has no emotions.  Those hidden emotions, however, are deep because, often times, it is due to damaging relationships of the past.  Be careful between now and November 5, 2013 that personal relationships are not based upon sexuality alone with passion and love hidden because of insecurities or obsession.

The New Moon signals a time of starting something new, gaining transparency and taking a leap of faith.  There is an urge to take chances, even if it means baby steps.  It’s a new way of looking at things and it’s a new way going on with your daily routines; even if it means to take a different way home to work or altering the way things are done out of habit.  The motivation is right for making spur-of-the-moment moves and following your intuition. This is the time to act through valor and have sincerity in progress – take an opportunity, live in the moment.

The new moon begins a new cycle.  New moon is asking you to make time to prepare for what your needs are according to the prospects you have in your life and what is available to you (through time of Virgo this month).



The moon in Virgo brings insight about all the little details and how we can help and serve others. Enjoy nutritive foods, pure deeds and clean surroundings. Time to be realistic! Sorting through emotions rationally and always humbly while emptying your reaction is the energy that will create positive reaction.  It may become very difficult to know what is good, clear; and healthy but there is an understanding that it will all work through common sense and hard work. The more work that is placed in helping others, the more blessings you will receive.

The Moon in Virgo brings a time of prudence, scrutiny, and productivity. People may feel more conscientious and detail-oriented. As a result, this is a good time to accomplish small or large projects, tackling the detailed ones first; since Virgos are meticulous the energy will supply the focus.

If you are a Virgo one piece of advice for you would be to take it easy; nothing is going away so fast that you must finish everything now. If you know someone that is a Virgo, be considerate towards them as they may seem pressurized to get things done or get things in order.



Virgos may also be obsessive with health, culinary and fitness activities. Also, people may be withdrawn as they are immersed in meditation and intellectual pursuits. Because critical thinking is emphasized, caution needs to be taken not to be too precarious or nitpicking. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, as is Gemini. Therefore Gemini’s may also get a blunt of the fixation to clean and get rid of clutter.

This is a good time for taking care of any matter that requires thorough attention. People may become reserved and retrieving with Moon passing through Virgo and will tend to be judicious, meticulous and even overly restless at times. These influences lead to a concern about food and health, for Virgo rules the intestines and the power of being flexible. Many people may feel the urge to clean up their homes at this time that is a good way to channel the Virgo energy.

The moon in Virgo is accurate, meticulous, hygienic, over-elaborate, and compliant. It is my suggestion that you purchase a Green candle and carve your name through to 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 functions of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention. 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:

“Om Eim Saraswatiyei Swaha”

(Om I’M Sah-Rah-Swah-Tee-Yei Swah- Ha)


This mantra invokes energy for making any task fruitful and successful. 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…”

Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a psychic 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 that every psychic bases all their telephone readings on your energy. Therefore, before phoning your favorite psychic ask for guidance from the higher power 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 when your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible. 98% of all psychics are empathic and clairvoyant so this energy is very important to them as well as you. Always remember that every reader has their boundaries as to how far in the future they want to read. This is 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.

These are general tendencies; every chart and every reaction is unique.  Therefore, this is not to be taken as an exact science or presumption, only as information and awareness of action and reaction to certain energy.

Vedic readings are quite unique – it is not western astrology or Vedic astrology, it is a unique technique which incorporates astrology and tendency to bring the most unique prospective of altering actions and reactions to bring spirituality and humility in areas of future as well as seeing mutative factors in order to eliminate or walk around them.

Wishing you the most productive new moon.
