Virgo New Moon -Nourish & Ground
September 9th -Virgo New Moon -Earth Element
The new moon in Virgo is always one of my favorite new moons of the whole year.
The yang of the summer months have come to pass, and the energy shifts into more of a feminine nurturing vibe. The earth heralds this transition through the abundance of bounty on offer from the fruits,vegtables,late summer flowers in bloom and the changing colours of the leaves on the trees and hedgerows.
Grounding and Productivity ...Time to sow the seeds of love...
Virgo is associated with earth, home, mother, family and nourishment -its the perfect energy to support us to take a strong holding over new goals in life.We can accomplish practical tasks with order and ease. Clearing out and re-organising personal space, or business matters will be well recieved at this time.
self care is about about tending to your wellbeing -our body is our earth, and rituals with intention to improve your health and beauty are highlighted in Virgo energy.Autumn is a natural time to shift our routines from the fast pace of the summer to a more gentle and sustainable routine, encouraging one to ease into the cooler months and draw nourishment from the earthly abundance that is all around us.
Autumn energetically brings in the 'harvest' of the last year. At this new moon take time to review what it is that you truly want to harvest this autumn, and what projects and dreams have not come to fruition,make time to release any of these to make room for the new energy that you want to work with. Lots of transformations occured over the summer with the 3 major eclipses, this brought suprise change for many people, and it was fast and furious with no let up at times-This has left us with new circumstances,a different perspective and new opportunities have been presented, what is left in place after this period of disruption is key and this isa good place to build from , and keep those close to you who have stuck by you through these transitional times, for their love and friendship is dear and counts.

Autumn is yin time -slow is more ,exchange the gym for more gentle practice like yoga and walking, the shower for the bath and the busy pace of summer life for a quiet candle lit corner to read a book.Enjoy the peace and calmness of Autumn for it is yours to embrace!!
Nourish your body with warming soups, broths and autumnal tonics. As we transition into Autumn it is recommended to avoid cold raw foods if you suffer from mucous and inflammation and enhance your foods with warming spices such as ginger and cinnamon to support your digestive fire.
