If you’ve been waiting for an opportunity, this is it! Now is the time, during the New Moon Phase, to create new beginnings. For the first 48 hours following the exact time of the New Moon each month, a window opens for making wishes that, if visualized and taken action upon, will materialize in the days and months ahead. There is a tremendous amount of enthusiasm in the atmosphere and a feeling of rebirth. Move forward powerfully, and initiate projects that you feel instinctively attracted to. Follow your impulses and allow yourself to go outside your comfort zone.
The planet Mercury rules over both Virgo and Gemini. While the Moon is in Virgo, intellectual pursuits are called for, but those adept in detail-oriented tasks will hold sway over those with an aptitude for creativity. Now is a good time for taking care of any matter which requires painstaking attention. With the Moon passing through Virgo, people may become shy and retiring, and will tend to be discriminating, judgmental, and even overly critical at times. These influences lead to a concern about food and health, and many will feel the urge to clean up their homes at this time. Virgo rules the intestines and the powers of assimilation.
