The New Moon in Virgo takes place on Sunday, August 28th, 2011 at 9:03pm.  This is a beautiful New Moon with a grand trine in the earth signs (Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn).  If you want to increase your well-being in the material and physical realm, this is a perfect time to set your intentions in order to manifest more abundance and greater health.
Jupiter, planet of joviality, luck, and expansion, increases our appreciation for this earthly existence.  This appreciation can express itself in all kinds of ways, from a desire to connect with nature, to heightened sensuality, to overflowing enthusiasm for our daily work in the world.
The New Moon in Virgo allows us to be very precise and grounded.  This is an important element in manifestation.  Although we may want many things, wanting and wishing are not always enough to bring forth manifestation.  It is important to draw the energy of vision down into the physical plane.  This is done by being very specific, practical, and realistic.  You can do this by creating measurable goals that can be accomplished within a defined time-frame.  And remember to write them down!
The New Moon in Virgo is trining Pluto in Capricorn.  Pluto expresses the energy of power.  In order to empower ourselves, we must first go through an initiation and be transformed by that initiation.  Because it is in the sign of Capricorn, which rules career and social standing, if you work to truly empower yourself, you will see the benefits manifest in your career and the way others perceive you.
The Mid-Heaven, which also rules career, is in Capricorn, trining Jupiter in Taurus, and Venus in Virgo.  This creates a fabulous opportunity for channeling the energy of love and passion into our careers and expanding wealth and health.
Everyone can benefit from this New Moon; however, because each of us has a unique natal chart, we each feel the impact in a slightly different way.  If you would like to learn more about how the New Moon will affect you personally, or other manifestation techniques, you might consider one of my CFU workshops on these subjects:  Predictive Astrology, Using Astrology to Manifest Your Goals, and The Law of Attraction.
