Beware: the Virgo New Moon Is Bringing Out the Skeletons in Your Closet

Oof, prepare for some heavy and traumatic issues to surface… because you'll have nowhere to hide. Even worse, you'll have no choice but to talk about them with others.

The new moon in Virgo on August 30, 2019 at 3:36 a.m. PT—with its compromising and communicative energy—will push you to start having some serious conversations about the past to help you make important decisions about what needs to occur so you can move on.

Thanks to a conjunction between Mars (planet of passion) and Venus (planet of sociability), both in earth sign Virgo, you'll be motivated to negotiate with important people in your life involving these festering situations. This could lead to better insight and solution.

While these convos may be intense (and downright terrifying to start), there is a lot of support at this time, with Mercury (planet of communication) in Virgo in its sign of exaltation. For you to truly face the problems, do the small things that are in your power in order to make big headway to overcome them.

More importantly, you'll need to take things that are discussed and put them into action in a practical and productive way. Try your best to keep your cool as you discuss these heavy issues; be open to new solutions and lead with your heart. After this point, you'll be able to release the past in order to step into newer and more exciting chapters. And those issues may not look so scary after all…

Here's how the new moon will affect your sign.
