Forecast 9/5 The Virgo New Moon occurs at 7:36 a.m. ET.

This is an extraordinarily direct New Moon; it sails into a connection with Jupiter, know as the Great Benefic. Unless your personal horoscope has other challenges going on, this can be an overall auspicious day for new undertakings.

Often when the moon is new it is best to wait a couple of days before undertaking a launch, but today has a rare cooperative energy supported by clear communication. Take advantage of it, if only to write down your thoughts, plans and strategies for the upcoming weeks.

scott-birthsThe Sabian Symbol** for this degree of Virgo is: Finely lettered names and mysterious lines are seen; it is a family tree.  This image indicates the depth of a concept that springs into life as the new. In other words, when something fresh bursts onto a scene it comes from somewhere. There is nothing truly new under the sun, and yet every now and then an idea is hatched that shakes things up. A child is born who changes the family dynamic; a product arrives that alters the way people do business. How this all comes about is somewhat traceable, but there is still the serendipity of why certain paths get taken.

It is valuable to jot down the circumstances of why you contemplate a certain direction today. Perhaps itemize the flow of decision-making or make a pros and cons list. Capturing in snapshots the steps that have led you to this place helps to give you the foundation of understanding the rightness of your new point of view. You may not feel there is any fresh start that needs undertaking, but if you take the time to map out where you’ve traveled it is highly likely that a path not yet taken appears.

This needn’t be a radical shift, although for some it might. However it is about organic growth and the natural order of what comes next. Sometimes there is hesitancy to take that next step, but since time passes regardless you might as well go through it with a conscious awareness.

This is a perfect time to start a new health or exercise routine, a job change or reorientation, as well as a fresh outlook on a relationship. ©Cucinell 2013- all rights reserved
