The Moon in Virgo sends us back to work after Leo’s party mood and gives us a to-do list. We become impatiently aware of what needs to be improved, fixed or healed. Our compassion is strong, but we can get irritated at less industrious folk. This transit is a time to: weed, edit, critique, care, exercise, investigate, study, heal but be gentle with others. Virgo asks us to consider what needs healing, what needs composting. It’s time to study, learn, train, organize and turn our compassion into pragmatic action. Don’t get stuck in your head. Weed, plant, and care for medicinal herbs. During this transit important issues are practicality, organization, cleaning up your diet or your house, healing your body or offering healing to others and attending to loose ends. After the Leo party it’s time to clean up our act and turn our attentions to the matter of our health and hygiene. Practical Virgo cleans the house, sets things in order, washes the dog, and harvests the vegetable. She purifies and organizes our diet, setting us on the healthy road for this lunar cycle. It is a time of taking responsibility and cleaning up the messes we’ve been leaving. Virgo brings painstaking attention to detail; housecleaning is a good way to work through a Virgo transit. During a Virgo moon, women are mentally active but there is a tendency to excessive criticism both of oneself and others. Emotionally it’s an inward time when we can reflect on personal relationships. Moon in Virgo is the best time to work magick involving employment, intellectual matters, health and dietary concerns. Healing rituals for ailments of the intestines or nervous system are also done during this period of time. Those born under a Virgo Moon sign are curious, responsible, caring but need to cultivate gentle acceptance of self and others.
We instinctually gravitate towards practical activities under the influence of a Virgo Moon. In an urge to set things right, we might easily find ourselves re-organizing and rethinking plans. Emotional satisfaction comes from solving problems, making order out of confusion, and helping others. Health matters might come into focus. We notice the smaller parts that make up the whole, and instead of letting nagging details bother us, we might work on ironing them out so that we can feel more confident moving ahead.
The Moon in Virgo generally favors the following activities: Mental pursuits, work activities, services, and routines. Activities that would benefit from tending to details.
