This is a powerful New Moon. It’s taking place in one of the signs of the Goddess – Virgo. Virgo is a gentle facet or side of the Goddess – the one that happily looks after home and family. Virgo, of course, represents the Virgin, which all women are at one point in their life. It’s the sign that knows it’s ok to be soft as well as strong. It’s a sign of mental acuity that thinks more about other people than it does about itself. But this month?
This New Moon in Virgo is triggering Mars, the planet of All Things Male, of competition and arguments. It’s like a Goddess getting an injection of testosterone.
Where in your life could you do with finding a better balance between being soft and gentle as well as competitive and driven? That’s one of the energies very much on offer at the time of the New Moon in Virgo this month.
Follow your dreams
Moreover, this empowered New Moon is taking place opposite the dreamiest planet of poetry and soulmates, Neptune.
Put it all together and you have driven and determined women chasing their dreams. So think about what you want to achieve and think about the fact that even if you were born female, you have male energies within you, and vice versa.
It’s the same way that the beautiful yin/yang circle has female and make energies, black and white, soft and strong. (In case you don’t know, yin represents the soft and feminine while yang is masculine and out there).
A New Moon meditation
On the night of the New Moon, print out a yin/yang symbol or cut out the one on this page and put it on your altar if you have one, or simply sit it in front of you as you sit down to meditate.
Call in the energies from the four corners, north, south, east and west and ask for the Divine feminine and the Divine masculine to embrace you. Imagine these two very real and powerful energies swirling around you as you chant:
Om Shakti, Om Shiva
What this mantra means: Om calls in the Divine, Shakti calls in the Divine feminine, Shiva calls in the Divine masculine.

Every month, I do a Facebook live, to get in tune with the New Moon.
