Awakening the Sovereign Woman Within: Virgo New Moon Magic
In the embrace of the upcoming New Moon in Virgo, we celebrate the theme of Sovereign Woman. It's a time to break free from societal expectations, embrace your inner power, and step into your authenticity.
This New Moon arrives on the wings of Divine Blessings. Virgo, the sign of the Virgin, represents a woman who is whole unto herself, a Sovereign Woman. It's a time to let go of perfectionism and self-doubt, and to relax into your authentic self.
What Virgo Teaches Us
Virgo’s energy helps us embrace our authentic self while accepting it with compassion, forgiveness, and strength. It does not matter whether you have Virgo predominantly in your chart or not. Virgo season brings us an opportunity to show up as we truly are and realize our inherent self-worth. It is a time to let go of self-doubt, perfectionism, and self-criticism as we step into our potential. It shows us who we could be if we allowed ourselves to step fully into our power.
Virgo season is also a time to find balance between who we could become and who we are right now. Virgo reminds us that if we are always comparing ourselves to our ideal version, then we will never experience true happiness. On the other hand, if we stop growing and striving to become a better version of ourselves, we stagnate and become unhappy. We must find balance between accepting ourselves as we are and wanting to transform into the next version of ourselves. The question becomes: How can you love and yourself today while working to become your future self?
The first step in accepting yourself is letting go of conditions you must meet for love. We often hold ourselves to an impossible standard, and when we fail to meet it, we fall prey to shame, embarrassment, self-doubt, and should-ing ourselves. We tend to hide our mistakes and mull them over, forgetting that others love us and want to support us. We feel that we are the only ones going through something and that everyone else has their life together far better than we do. We also compare ourselves to others without even knowing them or understanding their struggles. We tell ourselves that we have to meet certain criteria to be loved by others or to love ourselves. We may even judge our worth on what we do, not who we are.
As we work with Virgo, it’s a time to become aware of the conditions we place on ourselves for love and acceptance. What impossible level of perfectionism are you holding yourself to and why? Begin to teach yourself that you are worthy of love, acceptance, and fulfilled dreams. You do not have to be perfect to receive love and be worthy. You do not have to do anything more than be who you are right now.
What the New Moon in Virgo Means for You
Letting go of these things that make you feel unworthy can be a long process. Allow this new Moon in Virgo during September 2023 to help you accept your worth and cultivate a life that is full of everything you deserve. You deserve love, you deserve happiness, and you deserve to have people who accept you for who you are. These are not things you need to jump through hoops for. Rather, they are your birthright as a human.
It all starts with a deep self-acceptance and appreciation despite any experiences that may have caused you to feel pain, shame, or unworthiness. What do you need to heal to begin to feel your worth and know you are good enough? That is at the heart of Virgo’s energy.
The new Moon is a time to write yourself love letters about all the gifts that you have to give the world. It’s a time to have compassion for yourself. It’s a time to define your boundaries both with yourself and others. You must be willing to say yes to the things that matter and no—without guilt—to the things that feed your insecurity or sense of scarcity. Some of the boundaries will be with yourself, including your thoughts and your habits. Others will be with friends, colleagues, and other partners. Align with the Earth element this season to feel where you need boundaries, then know you are worthy of upholding them.
