New Super Moon in Virgo: Balance is the Key
During a New Moon, the Sun and the Moon are always conjunct — that is in the same degree of the zodiac, and within an eight degree orb of each other. Every New Moon we have is a coming together of the masculine energy of the Sun with the feminine energy of the Moon.
New Moons represent new beginnings — fresh starts. When the dual forces of the Sun and Moon join hands in their monthly cosmic dance, they create an ebb and flow of opposites — the conscious versus the unconscious – action versus receptive intuition. This is the Dark Side of the Moon and the energies of the Moon are now at a subconscious level. We probe deeper and review our innermost needs and desires, and we plant seeds.
New Moons are about balance of these opposing forces — the cosmic balance of the male and female energies, the Yin and the Yang — both in our individual selves and in the universe. astrology.com
