The Moon transits through Virgo when the lunar sky path crosses through the sixth sector of the zodiac, which is located in the constellation of Virgo, between <150° – 180°. Moon in Virgo highlights attention to detail and organization and is a favorable time for work that requires skill and precision.
Now is the time for paying attention to detail, detoxing your diet, cleansing your home environment, or getting started on a regular self-care routine.
Moon journaling each month during the new and full moon help connect you with these lunar energies. Use these Virgo moon phase journal prompts to reflect on areas of your life that could benefit from more attention to detail.
New Moon in Virgo
The New Moon in Virgo only occurs when the sun sign is also in Virgo, during the end of August and at the beginning of September. This energy coincides with the start of “back-to-school” season when people are making a fresh start for a new academic year, getting organized and feeling excited about the possibilities ahead.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the same planet that rules Gemini. Mercury energy symbolizes an expression of thoughts and intellectual discrimination. Virgo is logical, pure and can tend to be overly critical when life gets messy.
The earthy sign of Virgo is detail-oriented, service-minded and has an inherent love of excellence in all strivings. This is a great time to commit to personal goals that take care of the details of our day-to-day lives. Journal prompts for this moon phase include:
- What are my daily rituals or habits? How can they improve?
- When am I most disciplined?
- How am I of service to others?
- Where can I loosen up my expectation of “perfection” in my life?
Full Moon in Virgo
Full Moon in Virgo occurs when the Sun moves into Pisces, the zodiac sector opposite to Virgo. This takes place sometime at the end of February and at the beginning of March. This is the time of awareness of the body-mind connection.
Full moons illuminate the darkness and shine a light on the shadows that haunt us. Now is when you start to see how your daily routines, diet, habits, and hygiene impact your self-image or your ability to be of service. Pay attention.
The energy of this full moon supports problem-solving and the ability to handle stress. It is a time to face reality and make any difficult decisions that have been delayed.
Virgo allows us to gain insight into our situations and receive more clarity. A Full Moon in Virgo brings attention to the areas of our lives that need the most improvement and gives us the energy we need to initiate these changes. Use the following journal prompts for this full moon phase:
- When do I feel most relaxed and worry-free?
- Is there an area of my life where I get “analysis paralysis”? How can I let go of that?
- Where and with whom would life be easier if I were less critical and more receptive?
- What bad habits do I need to release?
Virgo is a Mutable Earth sign that supports organization and self-care. Focus your intentions on intellectual matters, employment, health, and dietary concerns.
This is a good time to organize your home and indulge in hobbies that bring you joy.
Healing rituals for areas on the intestines or nervous system are also done during this time.
- I serve the highest good through love
- My daily routines support my well-being
- I look beyond imperfections and see the beauty that surrounds me
