Virgo Moon in the sky? Means it’s time to get busy…!

The astrology of the Moon is SO much more than just cycling through the lunar phases. The zodiac sign that old Grandmother Moon transits on any particular day affects everyone, whether you realise it or not. And under a Virgo Moon, you’ll feel her influence more than most other signs…

What happens under a Virgo Moon transit?

Under the sign of the Maiden, the Moon is expressed as flexible, organized, methodical, and meticulous

As a mutable earth sign, Virgo is action-oriented.

She brings a lunar frequency of change and betterment, encouraging us all to seek refinement and purification.

Mutability brings the power to actually make positive changes, to manipulate your reality and ACT. And the element of earth brings this change-making potential, well, down to earth!

In everyday terms, this astrology often looks like the urge to clean!!

Plus, Virgo Moons also tend to bring meticulous attention to detail.

So it comes as no surprise that it’s a lunar transit favoured by bookkeepers and editors – under a Virgo Moon sign, every ‘i’ is dotted and every ‘t’ is crossed.

  • That pile of clean laundry still in the basket? Folded in minutes.
  • Stack of old paperwork on the side? Sorted and filed.

A Virgo Moon sign has the potential to turn us all into domestic Goddesses of the highest order!

And with this Moon’s attention to detail, also comes the ability to plan like a queen!

So when the Moon moves through this clarifying corner of the skies, make the most of it. This is your moment to strategize and diarise the next few weeks/months of your life.

Moon in Virgo energy loves to see things neatly lined up ahead. And when this energy is moving through the collective it can be a good time to pin other people down. So grab a calendar (or your iPhone) and start plugging in dates.

You’re far more likely to get done what you need to later on if it’s written down in plain sight.

A Virgo Moon calls for service and generosity

You’ll likely find this transit inspires a desire to give your time, energy, and expertise to others. But this rarely manifests as sitting around listening to the woes and warbles of your friend in need!

Under a Virgo Moon, you’ll feel a restless drive for taking action.

It’s a transit you’ll recognize for your need to DO something to tackle whatever the root of the problem is. Buuuutttt… Under the gaze of ruling planet Mercury, be wary of the high-speed stream of nervous energy that may also hit.

Beware: Virgo Moons can bring out your worst inner critic

Despite urging the best for everyone else (Virgo’s mothering comes second only to Cancer) this Moon rarely encourages us to take care of ourselves.

So beware of bouts of self-deprecating behaviour and mean self-talk.

With the potential for nit-picking, it’s important not to spiral into negativity, especially if you over-exert and tire yourself out.

The Moon in Virgo body

Many folks can be physically affected by the Moon’s transit.

If you’re physically affected by la Luna’s transit through the sign of Virgo, then your digestive system is likely to be where it’s at.

Our bodies tend to move through natural cycles of purification and release under a Virgo Moon. So take care of your gut health. Eating gentle, clean foods will help reduce the risk of any digestive troubles.

If you are extra sensitive, any allergies may flare. So detoxing your spaces and letting fresh air breeze through your home may also be of benefit under this Moon.

The old adage that Your Body is a Temple really rings true under this lunar transit.

So extra self-care is advised – anything you can do to really nourish and nurture your physicality will be doubly effective.

And remember: you can’t give from an empty cup, so love yourself first.

The Virgo Moon shadow

Every Moon has her shadow.

Shadows are rejected, hidden, suppressed, distorted, misunderstood, (or all of those) aspects of self. Our shadow traits rise up from the subconscious mind, often in ways we are completely unaware of, in response to triggers or BIG and difficult emotions.

Under a Virgo Moon, the shadow can look like:

  • Criticism + self-criticism
  • Perfectionism
  • Obsession
  • Worry / Overwork + Burnout
  • Body dysmorphia
  • Paralysis + procrastination

Shadow work under a Virgo Moon

Today’s Virgo Moon transit is the ideal time for shadow work because this Moon encourages us to see the details that maybe overlooked at other times. That micro-aggressive response you had? The way you judged your partner? The resistance to doing THAT thing?

All these kinds of things maybe your shadow appearing in plain sight. USe them as gateways – portals to your unconscious world, were healing beckons.

Just be veeeery careful you don’t slip into self-criticism. Turn up the compassion levels.

Do the Moon transits really affect how you feel?

Astrologically, the Moon affects your feelings, sensitivities, and intuitions, plus your unconscious leanings, too. 

So when we’re talking about the Moon and her transits, we’re talking about the deeper layers of our being: those you may not be wearing on a badge on your chests, for all the world to see!

But tune in closely, and you WILL notice the subtle changes in the frequency of the day – kind of like the emotional weather.

This subtlety is why both the daily Moon transits and your natal Moon are usually felt (and expressed) more freely by children.

…Kids tend not to have learned to hide pieces of themselves away (yet!) so their lunar qualities are on show.

You’re also more likely to see the giveaway traits of a natal Moon sign in lovers, close friends, and people who show up with you vulnerably.

As an ancient Goddess of the feminine mysteries, the Moon also influences the body

As she circles the Earth, the tides within our own bodies tend to rise and fall. This happens energetically, BUT ripples down into the physical too.

So parts of you will feel enlivened or dulled, soothed or enflamed, depending on how her energies land in your own miraculous physicality!

As the Moon spins her way around the Earth, she spends between 1 and 4 days at a time in a single zodiac sign.

As above so below – we are mirrors for the cosmos. We are mirrors for the Moon.
