NEW MOON IN VIRGO
AUGUST 30 @ 6:37AM EST | 6 DEGREES

trying to create permanence out of anything (especially who you think you are) is wasted effort.

you’re not doing something wrong if newness makes you nervous. that just means your system is rewiring, shifting, in motion.

you’re not doing something wrong if you have no idea what you’re doing but are trying anyway. that just means you’ve stopped playing prophet & started living with presence.

you’re not doing something wrong if you feel messy, discombobulated, completely foreign to your own damn self. that just means you’re doing what so many live forever afraid to do— surrendering to the reality that change is truth & the truth changes.

the dark moon (the day(s) before a new moon) is for cleansing, contemplation, & intentional resting. skipping ahead to new moon intentions/plans/actions is great yet so much more effective when we take the time to make room for those seeds to grow, to be honest about what might be in the way. taking the time to get to the root of what we want & need is never wasted effort. don’t make it a mission, just make a moment.

virgo is the pattern maker & identifier. ruled by Mercury, virgo works with the concept of fractals. this is the understanding that the macro is made up of the way multitudes of the micro overlap. consider that the themes of your self/life are not anything you’re stuck in but rather, opportunities to practice change in small ways that inevitably begin new patterns. this is how you tell new stories about yourself, your life, & what is possible for all of us.

when the new moon comes, it’s your cue to begin again. do not wait for someone or something to give you a new story or make your dreams come true. those things only happen when you take response-ability for being present to your own life & let enough of the past go to be available to forward movement. unmake up your mind about what you’re capable of or what is inevitable for you. I don’t like to beg but please, my starling, leave room for something different.

if you have been waiting for the stars to align, I must tell you that that is a matter of perspective, maybe even a matter of decision. because the future arrives when you realize it is already here. but, I must also tell you that moments as beautifully poised to support you as this one are infrequent. so abandon your complacency or self-judgement & join the conspiracy of the multiverse to turn your shine into an eternal summer.
