Critique in the Darkness: New Moon in Virgo 2020

New Moon in Virgo

September 17, 2020

By Maharani Rutan©

On September 17, 2020, there will be a void of the moon in Virgo at 7:00am EST and 4:00am PST, depending on the orb. Those at 23 to 25 degrees Virgo will be affected.

In July I had written about the prophecies of September 2020, and I am sure you will agree when I said, “perhaps we should become more spiritual and maybe there will be an advance in a vaccine for COVID-19.” (Read more about it here). However, I never said it would be miracle, as the full moon only brings forth new ideas and new beginnings, which means that the new moon brings us darkness and we are blind to what is really in front of us (read about the new moon and full moon meanings here).

The New Moon signals a time of beginnings for some. There is an impulse to act now because we feel our idea or thought, or change, has to happen in an instant. Though the energy may feel right for making impulsive changes and following your instincts, remember that the new moon blinds so that we cannot see the glitches or potential long-lasting change.

Therefore, analyzing our past mistakes or premature decisions and actions may be the best way to understand why we cannot repeat these again. The energy of this moon goes back, once again, to 2001; while not at the same exact degree, it is very similar. But for those that cannot remember that far back, perhaps autumn of 2009 and 2012 may refresh your memory. Nevertheless, the question that we will all ponder is what part of our lives needs a change.

As this moon is in Virgo, it can represent standards, logic, hard work, art, childhood memories, responsibilities, health, and most of all, earth. I believe that to see how we could have been impacted is important as we pave the way to the future; not to repeat those patterns so we are not blinded again.

Though this moon is not at the exact degree as the moon in 2001, you will see the similarities. As COVID has been the number one issue around the world, it is important that we look at similarities in the past. Cholera and Yellow Fever had rapid casualties in 2001, especially in Asia and Africa. Though a vaccine was not available for Cholera until 2016, the illness was fought with antibiotics. Like COVID, yellow fever is also a viral infection with no cure currently. In 2009, we also saw the H1N1 Pandemic, and while antiviral drugs which can lessen the severity were available, they are not a cure. Following this, in 2012, Hantavirus and Ebola appear in autumn; both are viral, both represent lung issues, and once again, there is no cure. Could it be that there is some common denominator? If we do have a vaccine it could be a cure to all, or perhaps close to it, but will it come in Spring 2022 or Spring 2025?

Nevertheless, we had opportunities for many health, earth, and work related issues in the spring of 2003, 2006, and an exact match in 2014. It was discovered 2003 that SARS was making headline news which began in Hong Kong, which is related COVID in 2020. In the spring of 2006 eight men joined a clinical gene trial and nearly died. In 2020, there are rumors that clinical trials of the vaccine for COVID have led to at least one death before the trials were halted last month. In 2014, a vaccine for Ebola worked during the West Africa outbreaks. Like COVID, currently, statistics state that vaccines given in U.K appear to work as well.

These similarities are not the first coincidences which were uncovered relevant to 2001. I have discussed similar events in the full moon blog in September here.

The New Moon is a time to articulate what our wishes are conferring to the predictions available (through Virgo this month). The moon in Virgo carries preparedness about all the slight specifics and how we can help others.

I also would not be surprised if major news regarding the aspects which I discussed regarding the energy of Virgo become headline news for those in Brazil, Costa Rica, Paris, and Mexico City. Furthermore, breaking news from California and Florida, especially LA and Tallahassee, is possible.

Enjoying nourishing foods and a clean environment. This is the time to be real! All emotions must be tempered with reason rather than raw. An endeavor for cleanliness and healthfulness, realism, and hard work is a must. The energy is great for ethical and divine gifts and will help anyone in need. Encouragement to others by weighing their burdens and helping to find answers for them will be very satisfying. Looking to your mother to be a model of cleanliness, ethics, hard work, and sensibleness may cause confusion.

For every full and new moon, I bring forth predispositions particular to the astrological sign emphasized. The primary placeholder affected by this moon is Virgo. For Virgo, your predisposition is listed below. For a general predisposition of all other signs, my suggestion is to combine your full moon predictions, or new moon predictions according to your sign, with the Solar and Lunar eclipse of June and Lunar eclipse of July for a complete picture of the possibilities in your future.


My sweet Virgo, first and foremost you know the old saying, “hakuna matata”, leave your worries behind. The remainder of this year will bring growth in your professional life and you will overcome several obstacles. I would not be surprised if more opportunities head your way by the end of September through December. But the only way things can go your way is by keeping your personal opinions and views to yourself, especially after 24th. Be as transparent as possible to your loved ones, as you do, so you will find the bonding is even deeper. If you are single, I would not be surprised if you find that special someone when Rahu changes signs. If you are married, be excited for your partner’s achievements by the end of the year.

Saturn: Work life can be rewarding as long as you are organized and hard working. You will gain recognition. New opportunities are possible. Financial life will also take a turn for the better. Because of this, your moods and outlook will impact your family and social life for the better.

Saturn (after the 29th): Illness with your spouse or family member could bring tension. Unnecessary spending. Difficulties with superiors are possible. Be patient and be dedicated.

Rahu (In Taurus Sept 24): Competition is possible at the workplace. Doing things in a hurry will not go over well. You will have support from your loved ones.

Ketu (In Scorpio Sept 24): Stress, difficulty concentrating, and accidents are possible. Keep cordial relationships with all.

Uranus: Positive influence where learning about other cultures, humanity, and inspiration to make a difference is the energy.

Jupiter: Any jobs or transfers are auspicious currently. Your work will be appreciated which will help you gain an even stronger reputation. Any charitable work you do will enhance that reputation.

Maharani’s Advice

This month does not bring any extreme conflicts or dilemmas into your life; you may get a lot of the support you are wanting in your work /career. But be sure you work as a team player. You might find that October is not as easy. There could be minor health or financial issues; unexpected expenses could be possible or glitches at work that could cause you to be short-tempered. This could lead to a presumed predisposition of being rude and short to others. Be humble; go on long walks somewhere which brings you peace of mind. In November there could be travel or a mini-vacation. Your active participation at the workplace will not be respected. However, you know that Mercury brings slips of the tongue. It will be retrograding from September 23 until Mid-November so be careful. In December, decisions and health related issues are possible, and there will be some sort of a significant change in your work environment. As long as you are true you should find no problems.

The Moon in Virgo brings a time of sensibleness, analysis, and efficiency. People may feel more hardworking and detail oriented. As a result, this is a good time to achieve completion of projects, particularly smaller scale projects that require organization and attention to detail.

Due to Virgo’s association with health, food, and fitness, there may be concerns during this time. Also, people may be shy as they are absorbed in study and academic pursuits. Because serious thinking is highlighted, carefulness needs to be taken to avoid being too unwarranted or overcritical. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, as is Gemini.

Since moon in Virgo is Tangible, Secure engaged, Nourishing, Trustworthy, and Cooperative, 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.The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Virgo moon is:

“Om Hrim Pitambaraya Paramatmane Namaha”

(Om ha rim petam bar ya Para matma nam aha)

Please remember, I am not an astrologer, rather, a Vedic reader where astrological tendencies are the groundwork for resolutions and directions to sublime pathways.

Wishing you one of the most productive moons ever.

Meticulous Maneuvers: New Moon in Virgo 2018

New Moon in Virgo

September 9, 2018

By Maharani Rutan©

The fall season is soon upon us and the Halloween decorations are already displayed in retail stores. Our days of summer heat are hopefully toning down a bit. Now, the hustle and bustle begin as the children are back to school and some are sent to college.

As we sit back trying to keep cool, political and international things seem to be heating up. In the meantime, all of us not in the political world are still scratching our heads wondering what the truth is. “However, the time will come to search even deeper for the truth between March and October 2018, when the truth as we knew it will bring eye openers to many.”-Predictions of 2018.

We all have been shocked in one way or another, from politics to our heroes passing. It has left all wondering, are we all getting old or is this just a new beginning?

Perhaps we can all have a sigh of relief as the eclipse of Cancer, which has begun Cancers journey, the last eclipse in Aquarius, and the Leo eclipse in August, are all behind us. Also, the little trickster (Mercury retrograde) has moved away.

This moon comes to us just in time to get our hands dirty and get to work. I am sure you have heard many Western Astrologers explain and write about the Earth sign Grand Trine. In short, I will leave that explanation for the experts. However, in VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) one of the most crucial times will occur between September 6, 2018 through September 28, 2018 and is known as Kala Sarpa Dosha. Without going into the technicality of this inference, the effects can be very damaging.

Environmentally, when this occurs there are bound to be Earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and floods. On the international front, battles, exploitation, and dysfunctional within the Government is a good possibility. Hence, on a personal level, depending upon the placement of one’s planets, one can have mixed results. Earth signs and Virgos are highlighted. There could be career advancements.

The new moon will void the sky on September 9, 2018 at 2:01pm EST and 11:01am PST in the practical sign of Virgo at 17 degrees. Unfortunately, the new moon has never been at this degree; the closest it has come was in 2007 at 18 degrees and the closest it will be in the future is in 2037.

In the world today, everything makes a full circle and if we rewind to 2007, President Bush appointed a new Attorney General, could it happen again? Then again, I would not be surprised if this will be a year of tropical storms and minor hurricane with September being the busiest month.

Maybe we should be wondering what’s next. My prediction is work. Uranus is retrograde in Taurus and going back to Aries for a couple of rounds to recheck. Jupiter and Venus are bringing some beautiful things to Aquarius, Sagittarius, Virgo, Libra, Gemini and Aries. But since this is a Virgo gift, I will expand on Virgos further into the blog.

The New Moon brings a time of opening something innovative, slow transparency, and taking a leap of faith. There is an impulse to take gambles, even if it means baby steps. It’s a new way of looking at things and a new way going on with your daily routines. The inspiration is right for making spur-of-the-moment moves and following your instincts. This is the time to act through courage and have genuineness in progress – take an opportunity, live in the moment.

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

The moon in Virgo carries insight about all the little things and how we can help and serve others. Enjoy nutritious foods, pure manners, and clean surroundings. Time to be genuine! Sorting through emotions sensibly and modestly, while limiting your reaction, is the energy that will ultimately create a positive reaction. It may become very difficult to know what is decent, pure, and healthy, but there is a consideration that everything will happen through hard work. The more work that is focused on helping others, the more blessings you will receive.

The Moon in Virgo brings a time of carefulness, analysis, and efficiency. People may become more meticulous and detail-oriented. As a result, this is a good time to complete small or large projects; undertake the detailed ones first, since Virgos are thorough, the energy will supply the focus.

If you are a Virgo one piece of advice for you would be to remain calm; 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 rushed to get things done or get things in order.

Virgos may also be fanatical with health, food, and fitness activities. Also, people may be reserved as they are engrossed in meditation and intellectual pursuits. Because critical thinking is highlighted, caution needs to be taken not to act with unwarranted comments or in finicky ways.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, as is Gemini. Therefore, Gemini’s may also become fixated on cleaning and removing clutter.

Advice for Virgo’s for the remainder of the year:

Now is the time to take advantage of any promotions and bonuses. This is also the best time to look for new career opportunities. Your financial situation will soon improve. You will notice that family members are more respectful and thoughtful towards you than ever before. You may even want to get involved in religious activities. Take notice of every opportunity you receive in all areas of your life. Your growth and expansion will come this year and new networking is possible.

Even though October may bring difficulties at your current position, in general, fall looks great for sustainable gains. The remainder of the year you are being warned not to give uninvited advice to people. You may need to sleep more and stay away from the color green as much as possible.

The moon in Virgo is precise, scrupulous, hygienic, complicated, 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. This year there are four mantras that will assist in advancing your spiritual self, as well as being more intertwined with the universal vibrations.


Om Shreeng Aing Sauh

Omm shriing aiingg sauh


Om Namo Prim Pitambaraya Namah


Aum Narayanaye Vidmahe Vasudavaye Dhimahi Tanno Vishnu Prachodayat


Om Aim Bum Budhaya Namaha.
Aum budhagrahaya vidmahe, Indu putraya dhimahi,
tanno somya prachodayat

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

Vedic readings are unique – neither western astrology or Vedic astrology. They are an exclusive method which integrates astrology and predisposition to bring the most exceptional probabilities of shifting actions and reactions to bring spirituality and humility in the future.

Vedic readings also look at meditative factors to eliminate or walk around some of the less favorable probabilities.

Wishing you the most productive new moon.
