SUPER NEW MOON IN VIRGO OCT 16 7:31 PM UTC / 8:31 PM BST / 3:31 PM EST / 12:31 PM PST / OCT 17 6:31 AM AEDT
The October 2020 New Moon is a super New Moon, meaning it just looks larger than usual for a new moon in Virgo.
Virgo is an earth constellation and lights up a theme health and healing, taking care of your body, gardening, herbal medicine. in new ways. This new moon comes with a twist – I usually suggest you focus on resting and rejuvenating on new moons (and the Red Day in Conscious Calendars) and then setting intentions for the month on the FIRST lunar day.
This month, And that New Moon is on October 16 2020. Right at the beginning of mercury retrograde. The theme for this is actually going to be the exact opposite of the energy that I suggested for the full moon on October 1, the full moon had an energy, which was expansive and so I wanted you to water, the energy of flow within the new moon is a quiet time. But because of the energies, it is going to be activated also by that Mars retrograde. So instead of spending more time in the quiet and nourishing, I’m actually going to recommend activating. I would like to suggest that on October 16 and 17th, you add dance, that you add some movement.
So the full moon on October 1 was about flow and moving like kelp, and being gentle and welcoming that energy, the new moon, which normally is this quiet time, I want you to activate your body. So that could just be running in place, that could be moving side to side from foot to foot, you know sort of activating your thighs, sort of shaking the body a little bit. That is going to be resonant energy for this new moon. It’s not a specific ritual, but it’s giving you activities which are resonant with that new moon. Of course. I think herbal medicine is fabulous. Saffron and honey are your recommendations for this month.
Mercury has only begun to retrograde just two days ago. It started on October 14 and Mercury is in the constellation of Venus in Libra. The first day of Mars retrograding back into Pisces was October 4. So Mars moves back into the water sign after the full moon of October 1. It’s the opposite this full moon, I’m sorry, this new moon and this new moon being an earth sign surrounded by and protected. This is all beautiful energy around this new moon. There is a reason I’m saying let’s activate your body, I think you’re going to find it really kind of helps move things along. And that you don’t get stuck. It’s sort of that that theme on keeping movement happening in your life. All right, the that New Moon is about bringing herbal medicine and healing changes to your physical body, to your garden to your house. earth signs are all about working on the physical. So you might be fixing things around the house, you might be gardening some more. And for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere saffron season, I planted my saffron bulbs just before making all of these videos. And I’m hoping to see them at least leaf out this year. So if you have some herbal herbs that you want to plant, even if it’s just some ground cover, that is time, that’s either creeping time or Oregon No, go ahead and just plant a single herb. Even if you don’t have a balcony, you can make a potted plant inside your home and choose one herbal, herbal plant that you can plant and grab and just sprinkle into your food. It’s a time to just choose one simple thing like that and begin integrating it into your life. So between planting one thing that you can use in your food and activating your body. This new moon is smack dab in the middle of the month. Then we have Halloween with the Blue Moon, the second full moon of the month.
