Get Sh*t Done With This Powerful New Moon Spell
On September 9, 2018 at 11:01 am PST there will be a new moon in Virgo. The “Virgo vibe” is notoriously known for wanting perfection and personal improvement but with this September’s new moon, the focus goes deeper than unattainable ideas of perfection. What Virgo really wants to bring into your life is balance, health, and the perfect recipe for what will allow you to thrive as a human being — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
The way to work constructively with this energy is by using this September new moon to take an honest assessment of the current stage that you’re at in your life. What would you change or do differently? What do you need in order to not only survive, but to thrive? Write them down on a list — Virgo loves making lists! — in order to capture and invite those changes into your life.
The sun (ruling your life energy) meets with Pluto (the planet of transformation) and the two together will work to ensure the improvements you’re wanting to make in your life will be for the better! Not only will the sun and Pluto surge the power that you will need to make impactful change, but it will also help you to simultaneously purge and release as needed to make room for the new!
Saturn (ruling commitment) just recently went direct on September 6 after being retrograde since April 17 so this is another planet that is working to help cement and support your commitment to lasting positive transformation on internal levels, as well as your surrounding environment! If you want to have a better diet, live in a beautiful and more organized home, experience better working conditions… these transits will sweep out what isn’t working or serving you and fill your life with goodness.
Mercury oversees Virgo and meets with Saturn for a very serious discussion (Mercury rules communication and the mind) so this helps to focus your attention, but also assist you in taking yourself and these changes seriously. Additionally, it will help to resolve any issues that may be obstructing your personal development.

Mercury also trines Uranus (planet of innovation), helping you to venture outside of your normal boundaries. For many, these changes will be on an internal level —changes that you will want and need to make. For others, you will see exciting events happening around you connected to your work, self-improvement, as well as messages that will aid and provide a guiding hand or assistance in your life. This is because new moons typically usher in new paths/roads in life, but also Mercury trine Uranus can bring in unexpected messages or information that can change the course and quality of your life for the better!
There is an underlying impulsive vibe swirling in the cosmos brought on by Mars (action) squaring Uranus (surprise). It’s hard to not take action on the things that excite you but looking at the chart of the new moon this action is inspired, which is the best kind of action! The surrounding planets mentioned are working to ground you and support you, so it is absolutely okay (and encouraged!) to stay spontaneously open to inspirational changes and see where they are guiding you!
- Find a rosemary, lavender, or mint herb plant and a pot to care and tend for it in. This should be a new plant that will be welcomed into your home or garden, not one that has been recycled from your garden space. Rosemary, lavender, and mint are not only easy to care for but they are connected to and work excellently with the energy of Mercury, which rules this new moon. Also, they will help bring in peace, concentration, as well as self-improvement.
- With the plant in front of you at your altar or sacred space — this can be indoors or outdoors! — write your intention for what you want to improve in your life for the better, paying attention to the details. For example, if you want to live healthier what exciting exercises are you interested in trying (aerial yoga, mountain biking, spin class- just to name a few!) and what new recipes would you love to try? Add that to your list. Stay open to what would excite and thrill you because the universe will provide the opportunity even if it’s not currently available in your area.
- Make a full list, holding nothing back! When you are done, fold the list towards you into three squares and tuck into the base of the herb plant. Repot the herb over the list while saying a prayer over the plant inviting these things into your life for your highest and greatest good. Water the plant immediately and place in the east direction of your home or a window that receives sun. Water and tend to it as needed to allow your intent to grow and prosper in your life! — By Jessica Wiggan
