2022-03-02 Virgo New Moon – Southern Hemisphere

Editor: Robin Armstrong


Virgo New Moon

Southern Hemisphere

The New Moon

When your feelings about the past, memories, and your sense of security

conjunct or meet up with

Your confidence,  purposefulness, and your hopes for the future

A profound impression is made.

A note on the harp of the soul.

A seed moment in celestial manifestation.

The Horoscope for the New Moon is for the exact moment of the New Moon.

There are no houses in this chart because the Moon is in all 12 houses at the same time when viewed globally. So this is the true New Moon chart for anywhere on earth. You can add the houses to it according to where you live.

Most computer printouts will draw the horoscope with the houses as appropriate for where you are on the planet. This was not done here in order to focus on things valid for everyone on the planet.

New Moons are the peak  points of subjective impressionability in the month.

Receptivity to core insights and to God, are accentuated.

Chanting (or even drumming) on a New Moon will give an extra vitality to your efforts over the following month,

until the next New Moon.

A holy  environment and spiritual companions are a great blessing.

The New Moon accumulates and reflects on all of the experiences of the past month. On the New Moon the conglomerate of experiences past, creates a high tide of intuitive impressions. At the moment the Moon meets the Sun, light is  shone on these impressions creating a new sense of purpose. It is the Sun than effects the Moon.

From our worldly consciousness we cannot see the combination or aggregate of memories, but we can certainly feel it.

Unfortunately our habit patterns are too gross or physical to allow us to attune to this phenomenon consciously, but we certainly can feel it.

Only the initiate or one established in spiritual disciplines can clearly witness the New Moon within.

Zodiac Pattern Types

Zodiac Bundle Type


All planets within the space of a trine, two thirds of the charts is empty.

The course of the person’s life stays within narrow limits of opportunity. One’s interests will be gathered together intensely. The bundle type is instinctively inhibited. Most of one’s energy will be directed into a few selective concerns. One will be able to create much out of meager circumstances. One will be able to turn small beginnings into significant and unexpected outcomes. You will naturally express yourself in a few specific areas and generally stay detached from other considerations.

Virgo New Moon – Bundle:

Summer and sunshine continue to reign down under while the upcoming New Moon occurs in down to earth Virgo. The Moonlight has vanished and the moments of complete darkness make way for the potential of deep spiritual contemplation and intuitive insight. Although not visible to the naked eye, the Sun meeting the Moon is an energizing time. Materialistic and practical matters we have been exposed to since the last New Moon will nurture the intuitive impressions about to unfold.

It is a powerful yet sensitive time as this invisible luminosity is being channeled into the Bundle Pattern.

Virgo’s high level of adaptability is being called upon as it is asked to channel its desire to improve itself into a small, intense arena. The need to communicate a few select earthly concerns will be as high as the level of reflection and introspection. Seeds planted now, whether spiritual or mundane, are subject to high scrutiny and deep analysis on their way to significant maturity.

Use this pivotal New Moon energy to clear your mind and meditate while embracing silent darkness and tender new light!



45° – 0°, 3 1/2 to 0 days before the New Moon.

            This is the last phase of the lunar cycle before the new moon. It is often called the balsamic moon phase and it lasts for three and one half days from the crescent to the new moon. The light finally disappears into the mystery of silence and darkness. Completion becomes important. Your own projections seem to disappear in the vastness of all that is happening around you.

            You are searching for something new but are unsure of how to end the old attachments. Your awareness of others begins to lose relevance as you approach renewal. Try to understand what needs to be left behind. This should be a daily meditation. You have the uncanny ability to know when anything is ending or about to fall apart. Unfortunately it is not usually wise to tell others about it. They would probably consider you to be too negative. You need to learn why things come to an end. It is important for you to mind your own business or you will keep seeing everything that is going to collapse on everyone. Learn to look within for the new vision. Trust silence. Take steps to move towards your vision. Be very selective. Listen and wait.

            Often people will not appreciate you until you have gone. Try to insure that your influence is a positive one. Watch what you say. Often you will seem overwhelmed by useless or futile commitments. Do not try to save face. Be honest and let go.

            The quality of ending will directly effect the nature of the new beginning just about to come. So be wise. No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. It may not make sense to others but if you trust your conscience, you will see the way. Hold on to your principles. Do not make promises that you cannot keep, especially long term promises.

            You have the tendency to lose yourself in others only to be left very insecure when they do not have the answers. You want to become completely involved with someone. You will constantly search for or wonder about the ultimate love of your life. Often you will feel that what you have is not enough, and then you will wonder why you bother to stay within it.

            You are looking for completion and fulfillment and are not likely to embrace freedom comfortably. You want to burn your past for future goals. It is amazing though how long you can procrastinate and wait. You want to help but often do not know what to do. You will probably not bother until somebody else cares.

            A little encouragement can have profound effects. To attract positive feedback you must be positive towards others. If you must end a situation, it is important for the reason to be correct, otherwise your problems will reoccur in the new arena.


O°- 45°, 0 to 3 1/2 days after the New Moon.

This is the beginning of the lunar cycle and lasts for three and one half days. The light is emerging gently. From the depths of the darkest moment up to the first slim crescent of light, and a little farther until the crescent is smiling brightly.

            This is a highly intuitive time filled with deep impressions and new beginnings. This is a time of seed moments and powerful insights. There is a predominant undercurrent of anxious anticipation. A new moon cycle is born.

            Born under this phase you need to feel that your life is just beginning to open up. The challenge is subjective: are you prepared to advance your own cause? You should readily adjust your lifestyle to support any new sense of direction that you feel is emerging within you. You will be constantly having to make new starts in life. You will be sensitive to new beginnings and uncertain about your present surroundings. You are inclined to leave old attachments and memories behind. You want to move forward towards your goals and will be frustrated by any setbacks.

            When you begin a project it is important to advance with care and gentleness. Make sure that you nurture and protect the germinating seed; ie. the new you. It is usually easier for you to do things than to talk about them. Remember that you do not have to achieve everything right away, but it is important for you to feel that you are advancing toward your goals.

            You are the kind of person who plants ideas in the minds of others. You will reach out and impress others subtly. You will always be able to sense the new path that should be taken. As long as you are moving along this path you will feel relatively secure. Worries and problems will surface when you crystallize or stop growing. Do not look back or hold on to the past. Nurture the light within. Protect your own development and do not throw your good ideas out to fools who will not appreciate them. Neither should you follow the dreams of others. Trust your own inner sense of direction. Whenever you can make the effort to be creative, you should. Do not try to explain the process, just do it! Consistent effort will accumulate. Reach out. Rely on your instincts. Grow. Break out of old patterns. Move on. Move on. New beginnings always seem small against the vastness of life around you, none-the-less every journey starts with one small step. Try to find friends who will support and acknowledge your efforts. Always be cautious about what you say. Words can come back to haunt you.

            You will always be trying to start something. Make certain that you take time to water the flowers and plants in your garden of hopes and dreams. The end does not always justify the means so make your daily life creative. Take time to smell the flowers along your path. You will be able to draw encouragement and inspiration by listening to birds singing.

DAYLIGHT IS DECREASING           =         Momentum towards responsibility

MORE DAYLIGHT THAN DARKNESS  =   Individuality predominates

MUTABLE    =         Adaptable, perceptive, manipulative.

EARTH         =         Practical, materialistic, down to earth, tactile.

FEMININE  =  Reflective

RULED BY  =  MERCURY: need to communicate and  make connections.

KEYNOTE:  =  “I analyze”

PART OF BODY  =  Intestines, Alimentary canal, spleen.

COLOUR  =  Yellow-green.

GEMS  =  Pink jasper, hyacinth, agate, marble, topaz, and aquamarine..

METALS  =  Mercury

HERBS  =  Fennel, dill, licorice, endive, mandrake, skullcap, savory, southern wood,

    valerian, walnuts.

Some Virgo Considerations:

 Virgo is a Mutable sign. Mutable is adaptable and perceptive.

Virgo is where critical perception manifests.

There is a continual challenge to improve and make things better.

Virgo’s place importance on health and youthfulness.

There is always something to be concerned about!

They are very tactile and easily discomforted.

Their special gift is to improve the quality of life.

They are intolerant of those who do not help

And of those who make things more difficult.

They are continually making adjustments and improvements.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, or the mind.

This is the critical or discriminating mind. When positive this shows a brilliant intelligence. When negative it can degenerate into constant complaints and excessive criticism.

The challenge is to practice what one preaches

And to keep one’s mind positive and clear.

This is the dark half of Summer.

Darkness increases and with it

Comes growing responsibilities and fading freedoms.

Daylight is still greater than darkness but it’s predominance will soon be neutralized. One needs to prepare for the future and improve one’s capacity for relationship. One needs to be useful and helpful to others or difficulties will increase.

This is the trigram of The Abysmal, Water.

Too much water will destroy the crops; too little will diminish the harvest. Virgo’s are vulnerable to the abyss of discrimination.

They can isolate themselves by too much criticism,

And they can impair their progress by too little criticism.

There is a need to improve or perfect.

The job is rarely ever completed. There is always more to be done.

They do too much or too little. It is difficult to find a balance here.

The Eightfold Path for Virgo is Right Mindfulness or Right Attentiveness.

One needs to be diligently aware, mindful and attentive with regards to: the activities of the body (focus on breathing and exercise), sensations and feelings, activities of the mind, and ideas, thoughts and conception of things.


Pentans are five degree divisions of the Zodiac in which the zodiac repeats itself creating a sub-level  of meaning. Sub-pentans divide each 10 degrees of the zodiac into 12 sub-sub-signs adding a third level of meaning. The Zodiac sign is the Main Theme, The Pentan is the Special Focus and the Sub-Pentan is the Intimate Detail.

Zodiac Faces

Today we see

the Face of Opinion

Aries: Your opinion will be well received today. You will be able to sense where things are headed. Be ready to reach out and act on good ideas. Some risks are worth it!

Taurus: Everyone will have their own opinions today. Too many opinions are as good as none. You will be challenged to adapt and adjust your viewpoint. It is unlikely that you will!

Gemini: You will see things clearly today but others around you will not. If you get caught up arguing over differences of opinion you will lose time and credibility. Trust your own instincts but do not try to explain yourself.

Cancer: You will be out of your element today. Too many opinions will confuse you. Don’t ask! Castles made of sand fall in the sea eventually. Protect your own feelings and don’t expect others to be reliable. Talk is cheap!

Leo: Others will have a good opinion of you today. Accept compliments when they come. Do not try to go out in too many directions. Good will will have a magical effect on others.

Virgo: You will have strong opinions today, but others will still emphatically disagree with you. Keep it to yourself or you will be ridiculed in front of others. Criticism will not be taken in a positive light.

Libra: Good vibrations prevail. There will be scintillating conversations and a diversity of opinions. If opportunities for investment arise, then you should capitalize on them.

Scorpio: Everyone will have their own take on things today. Opinions will float around like pollen in the wind. Those who talk the most know the least. Don’t throw pearls before swine!

Sagittarius: You will get in hot water today over your opinions. You will assume that you have the special overview and should be listened to. Make sure that you have your facts straight before you put them out.

Capricorn: Talk is cheap. Silence is golden. Do not get pulled into petty discussions that are supposed to solve the world’s problems. You will gain more presence by keeping your opinions to your self than by putting them out. Maintain your sense of mystery.

Aquarius: There is a big difference between what you know to be true and the opinions of others. If you express yourself well and with honesty you will impress others and gain respect.

Pisces: You will be challenged from several directions at the same time. You will not win an argument today so don’t expect your opinions to be valued. Try to keep aloof from idle or abstract discussions.
