In this time of impending harvest in the Northern Hemisphere, the Virgo New Moon provides us with the emotional material to separate the wheat from the chaff, metaphorically speaking. Virgo is known for her urge to improve herself and the environment, which necessitates the analytical qualities of discernment and evaluation. From an emotional standpoint, this period is ripe for discarding unhealthy ways that hold us back from optimum growth. It marks a time when we can initiate new practices that assist us in emotional cleansing and a refocusing of our perspectives and actions.
