The sign of Virgo combined with the fresh beginning of a new moon is asking you to focus, fine-tune, get clear on your goals and visions.This is a perfect time to find new solutions to old problems. this current alignment of the planets support sound and bold answers to the question of what we need to accomplish right now in our personal and collective life to move forward into a brighter outlook for the future. There is no ‘rule’ to be manifesting with the moon as such. This moon shouldn’t have the intensity we have been experiencing lately, but it is powerful, so use it with care, enthusiasm and know that now is the time for you and your new phase.

This energy lasts for 3 days before and 3 days after the New Moon and will help move us forward with greater clarity and ease. Over these next few days focus on how you can step more boldy into your power. Ask yourself: What do I have to offer the world, my community? How do I want to shine my light, and shine it brighter? ⠀
