The New Moon is in Virgo. The archetype symbol of healing, order, service, structure, perfection, and attention to detail. With aspects to Mercury, we’re venturing into new territory.
The theme for this moon is positivity, healing, self-belief, and transformation. All with small committed steps and with no agenda. This makes it all the more potent. It allows for the willingness of support to enter and direct where needed.
Jupiter completed its retrograde cycle a few days before this new moon. We can capitalize on the groovy lucky vibes and attune to expanding the energy that can surround us now.
We have the chance to set intentions of hope, positivity, abundance, and luck. And while many things in our world are finding a new foundation to flourish. We can influence this outcome by taking responsibility for our part in it.
Pray, meditate, do what you do when you wish a dream realized. And then add some extra for humankind. This is also in line with Virgo’s sense of service and timely. Nothing like some cosmic influence to get things moving in a positive direction.
Patience is key.
There are times we can get carried away and feel a sense of loss when life has no purpose.
Now with this global pandemic, some of us are being asked to create a new one. While having to let go of the old. It can be deep and unrelenting.
To deal with unexpected challenges breaking things down, we can move from one lily pad to another. Especially if changes such as these make you feel overwhelmed.
There may be times when you’re feeling extra focused, and others may feel super scattered. These are the extremes to look out for.
And with that, we have two supportive flowery love helpers for this lunation.
The Golden Waitsia and Happy Wanderer.
Flower Essence Healing on Offer
Golden Waitsia – helps the mind to let go of the worry associated with having everything just so.
With this moon, the mind may be busy or preoccupied with all the to do’s. It helps to let go of all the microscopic details and align with a bigger picture. And although the Moon is in Virgo – with aspects to Mercury – we may find our minds can be super obsessive and busy right now. This essence helps to let go of the anxiety around perfectionism. It is a big picture essence.
With Mars in Aries (the sign of the individual) and in retrograde, the Happy Wanderer essence awakens self-determination. When we have to walk into new ways of being and forge our path. It helps to ease anxiety and the need for external validation. Sometimes you have to make decisions on your own. An essence of self-determination and self-belief. This, too, is a big picture essence.
And when one believes in oneself, anything can be achieved.
The messages are clear.
Attune to who you are on a soul level with an individual purpose for the good of all.
We’re all worthy of creating and maintaining our life’s work and dreams.
In Victor Frankl’s book Man’s Search for Meaning, he states,
“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”
And this is the challenge. Learning to face ourselves is the bravest, most profound thing you could do right now. Or ever.
To face the feelings of fear, grief, loss, confusion, anxiety, pain, joy, relief, and awaken deep awareness. And to use and transform these feelings into insight and inner peace. In small, profound, and yet manageable ways
With the so-called chaos of this year and everything that it has awakened for us, we will continue to do so. This is to push us out of our norm. Through this process, the mind will search for meaning and make way for some “reason” why things had to happen.
For me. As with all the work I do – no matter the reason – we have opportunities to empower and make good on what’s been served up to us.
It’s not experience that brings wisdom. It what we draw from the experience that is the gold in anything we endure.
Mars in Retrograde.
This transit can be used to our advantage.
This is a time when we can see we’re intolerant and channel negative energy through the triggers that arise. The key to this transit is to notice and pull this awareness within. It’s not the time to lash out or confront.
This transit is helping us to align with our true calling. When we make the most of these retrograde transits, we can access parts of ourselves and times past to clear and reestablish a new path forward.
One path could simply be the doors closing to times and traits past. This is how we can create an environment where we thrive without carrying the karma from our past, generational stuff, and social conditioning.
And with the state of our Earth, if there was ever a time to change – It has to be now. It is time to evolve. And if you have the impetuous, the bravery and the calling – this the best time to start. The use-by date is making itself known in a lot of places of this current paradigm. Making this a fortunate time to find or work towards clarity.
Our Energy is Important
With this, you may have felt lethargic or confused about why you’re not firing on all cylinders. Feelings of depression, sadness, or loss of interest in ambitious drives. All are hints that something is up for change, and a new opportunity may present.
It could be by acknowledging emotion or tuning in to make sure you want to be doing what you’re doing. Purging is big all month on all levels.
Mars retro can also show us that we’re more than our ambitions; we’re more than our career or “do.” A rebalancing takes place to make sure you find fulfillment in all areas of life.
It helps us reassess and make sure the path we’re on is the right one. Unified wealth means unification on all levels of life. Weaving through every thought, connection, and relationship.
This is a natural cycle ripe for rest, meditation, visits to the beach, holiday if you can, counseling, and deep inner work.
So many are tired. When the body is calling for rest in this way – it’s good to heed its advice.
This moon cycle is potent. And with so many things to consider.
Use first your intuition. Listen to your gut instincts.
We use the Astro energy as a means to gift us wisdom and to make the most of the empowerment on offer. When things come out of the blue and set you in a spin. There are many tools to use to help us understand, connect, and shift our perspective.

How to Apply this to the Everyday
It’s all very well and good to understand the energy of this time. It’s even better when we apply it.
To recap – if you find you’re angry, intolerance, overreacting, triggered – follow the feelings within. This means take five before you act or say something you might regret as the moment’s impulse.
Following the feeling.
Sit with what’s uncomfortable. If you’re struggling, channel it healthily. Go for a run, exercise, remove yourself from the environment – gift yourself some downtime. The benefits are endless—less stress in the body, access to creative solutions, a positive mindset, and an open heart.
This is taking full responsibility. And if you need to communicate, make sure it is a win-win for all.
With Mars in Aries, it is a time to hold your sovereignty within group dynamics. The flower essence Happy Wander supports inner strengthen. Self-belief, self-reliance, and self-determination. Especially if you find you’re on the receiving end of an impulsive tanty.
The Roller Coaster of 2020
This year has been such a roller coaster for all of us.
With Virgo’s strong vibe amongst the frey, the simple things in life are more than the best. They’re the way through after these months of 2020. And it’s not over.
With Jupiter (planet of expansion) moving forward, and Saturn (planet of restriction and karma) due to start his sojourn ahead at the end of the year – the last nine months have been the gestation period.
If you have felt you want something or do something but have been restricted. This tension should release soon. Seeming “blocks” are ways in which we can re-evaluate. The best way to manage this is to tune in to what we’re willing to sacrifice to achieve.
There is some significant Astro energy ahead of us. The key.
Remain true to yourself.
It can be so easy to get swept up in the ideologies and dramas surrounding us.
Intentions | Change | Choice
For me, my work and my intentions, my heart has always changed the ideology that we need to suffer to learn. We needn’t suffer needlessly. We can use discomfort for our good, yet we needn’t endure if we don’t need to or any longer than we have to. We needn’t have to ignore or push through to make it go away or pretend it will go away.
If the choice has been taken out of our hands -in the words of Victor Frankl
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s way.”
Life has changed in ways we didn’t see coming. And now that the lid has been lifted, we get a chance to choose now more than ever how we get to live. Including who we want to live with – or even what we have to live with.
We can create the world we want to live in. But we have to start now. There is no more room for complacency or procrastination. What do you offer this gift of your life? What can you gift back to a planet that sustains you?
To create Harmony.
To envision a bigger picture ideal. Is a prayer of sorts
And big picture prayers are what we need right now.
Happy healing new moon
Until next time
Much flowery love
* Mans Search for Meaning written by Victor Frankl
It is a book about life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering, but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. It’s a fantastic book and continues to inspire to find significance in the very act of living.
Being fully seen and understood by another human being without judgment or bias is both our greatest need and the thing that is most missing from our daily life.
Especially now in this era. More than ever.
