Moon tracking, day 12. The moon has been in Virgo all day, and it will be again tomorrow, until it moves into Libra at 9:13p EDT. But there’s a twist! If you’ve been wondering about how these “void moons” feel, you’ll get the chance to check it out tomorrow since the moon will be void from 5:49a EDT until it moves into Libra at 9:13p. After the moon makes the last of the major aspects to other planets throughout the zodiac, it’s "void-of-course" until it moves into the next sign. The idea is that void moons are not great times to start new projects (but you can finish things up), and they’re times you may feel a little aimless or sluggish.
How’s the Virgo moon treating you? I’ve been feeling motivated to clean up around the house, clean out the fridge, eat a bunch of vegetables, and get some tasks crossed off my to-do list. This morning, though, as I was standing out in the backyard while my dog sniffed around, I was also picking up an earthier vibe from the Virgo moon than I usually do. I was trying to figure out how to describe that earthiness when I saw @proudmandible’s comment on @powerfemmetarot’s post about yesterday’s Virgo moon. Tending a garden! Taurus earthiness always makes me think of moss and enormous old trees, and Capricorn is the solid, rocky earth of a mountain. Virgo feels like the earthiness of tending a garden.
With @proudmandible’s permission, here’s most of the insights they had to share from a Virgo sun perspective: "For me, being a Virgo is all about being a gate/groundskeeper. It’s about learning boundaries - when does constantly serving others turn into martyrdom? When does a critical vantage point communicate thoughts too harshly? When do I need to speak my mind with more frankness? And perhaps the thing that was hardest to understand about “the virgin”, that purification is actually discernment - who do I let into my heart and body? What kind of alchemy am I doing with the ingredients/people I am letting in the mix?”
