September 9th, 2018, is a New Moon in Virgo! Opposite Neptune, we may be susceptible to confusion, deception, and fantasy right now. Try not to get carried away with any ideas that aren’t grounded in reality, particularly if they make you feel insecure or discouraged. These things can sometimes be the easiest to believe, when they touch upon the things we fear, but the willingness to believe them doesn’t actually make them more likely to be true! This lunar aspect to Neptune makes it easier than usual for us to be fooled, so stay away from making big purchases and don’t put too much stock into gossip or things that you hear. Unless there is concrete proof in front of you, err on the side of not taking anything too seriously for now. As it’s important to expect that you may not fully understand the intentions of others, we should do our best to be clear and honest about our own. Even if we’re feeling confused, we can at least express *that*!
This new moon is sextile Jupiter, which brings good luck, happiness, and supports us in acting with honesty and integrity, no matter what’s coming at us from others. It should bring feelings of enthusiasm and optimism, so ride those feelings to start new projects and set new moon goals!
The moon is also trine Pluto, which fosters feelings of determination and the ability to understand complex issues. While Neptune’s position could create some fogginess, the moon’s positive aspects to Jupiter and Pluto offer counteracting positive vibes—supporting the possibility that any issues that arise, if dealt with honestly, can lead you to a better place than you’ve been, in your relationships with yourself and others. Have faith in possibility, and do your best to only believe and follow the things that make you feel good about yourself and your place in the world! <3
