If you are still reeling from the intense astrological energy we experienced this summer, you’re not alone! While you’re trying to pick up the pieces from these crazy months, make sure you steady yourself for a little powerful punch this month.
The next New Moon will come grace the night sky on September 9th, and it will occur in Virgo. The first phase in the lunar calendar, the new moon brings us the opportunity to make a fresh start. This is a great time to set your sights on the future. More specifically, to increase your odds of success you should take some time to set shorter term goals, focusing on the remainder of this lunar cycle. What steps can you take to move forward in a positive way?
With this occurring in Virgo, you will find yourself empowered to discover new and exciting solutions to life’s problems. During this time, you will also feel motivated to address some of your old habits and behaviors. Often, the only barrier between you and your biggest goals is simply yourself. By making small changes to your daily habits and refocusing your mind, you can free yourself from limitations.
It is important to keep your heart and mind open. Don’t allow yourself to dismiss new ideas simply because they feel ‘odd’ or ‘different’. The same old solutions have been failing you. so why not try something new? The secret to success will be found in some of the most unlikely places.
Now that everything is rolling in a positive direction, you can start to prepare yourself for the full moon which will occur in Aries on September 24th. While the New Moon is the start of the lunar cycle, a time for new beginnings, the full moon is the peak of lunar energy. During this time your mood and emotions will be at an all-time high, so don’t allow it to get away from you!
The bold energy of Aries is going to be felt strongest when it comes to your confidence and desire for adventure. Never before will you feel stronger and more capable of taking on the world, so why would you allow something like that to pass you by?
We are often limited by our fears, choosing to settle for less simply to avoid stepping out of our comfort zone. The Aries Full Moon is going to give you a unique opportunity to face these fears once and for all, overcoming them and releasing yourself from the hold that they have on your life. Take a moment to step back and seriously look at your life. What is holding you back? Trust your intuition, and if you feel like things are getting uncomfortable, that’s a sign that you’re finally leaving your comfort zone and making it happen!
