Get in touch with your material girl as your finance zone is the fertile field for your seeds of intention. Before something becomes a reality, you need to visualize it and feel it. Virgo is about detail so don’t be afraid to define exactly what you want to attract, how much, and even what kind of work would light you up. What possessions do you see in your name? What do you want to call ‘mine’? Write a list of up to ten items, and apply your creative flair by drawing up or finding images to make a vision board. Go with a unique approach and allow your ideas to flow freely without the what ifs.

Tie up loose ends or close off projects as its time for your next phase. Mercury rolls into home sign Virgo on the day of the full moon so you’ll be brimming with ideas. Think outside the box and connect further afield than you’d normally think practical.
Libra | Libra rising
Libra, you have double manifesting power on this week’s new moon in earthy Virgo. This moon magic is strong this month, as it’s in your mystic zone. While Virgo is an efficient earth sign, this dreamlike area is anything but. However, it’s an extremely creative space to work from. Drop into the dark moon phase by preparing a sacred space. Ground in with some natural beauty like flowers, and perhaps make a small altar. Add to the ambiance with scented candles, then write up what you’d like to bring into your life over the next six months. This zone is literally about dreams, so put the detail into yours. A key to this new moon is drawing on the resources that others can bring to the table, that compliment your own. What unique yet practical contribution could a significant other, offer you? When merging assets, can you connect radically yet preserve a space for independence?
Scorpio | Scorpio rising
This week’s new moon suggests finding the practical edge in friendship. Bring in a dynamic twist by collaborating with your partner, or even allow extra space from your partnerships in order to make some radical new connections. Your partner or a close friend may introduce you to a new group or circle that has a lot of potential and feeds back into your primary relationships. The magic of this moon is best directed toward calling in friends or peers with shared ideals and particular common interest. If you’ve been searching for those people that provide nutrition to your hopes and dreams, then plant the seeds of intention that you’ll meet exactly the right people at the right time for you. Get clear on your goals as well as the kind of people or groups you’d like to find or be a part of. You may find yourself in a caring or even motherly role for friends.
Sagittarius | Sagittarius rising
This week’s new moon is all about aiming for peak career goals. How exactly do you want to be of service through your career? Earthy Virgo ‘squares’ your sign, bringing success by forcing you to focus rather than apply your usual wide-ranging approach. You don’t like to be reigned in but go with it and knuckle down. Consult a professional, get a manager or even outsource the details of banking, booking or social media content if it’s tripping you up or slowing your usual frenzied style. Set your intentions for what you want to achieve in your career and how you present professionally. Ask that you receive the assistance you need to pin down details you’d normally avoid. If you can move past resistance around dealing with practical details, this week could see you achieve a lot of traction. Less talk more action will set you up as rather fetching to potential employers, bosses or career collaborators.
Capricorn | Capricorn rising
You’ll literally feel ‘in your element’ with six planets in super-practical earth sign Virgo.

The area for new moon expansion is also one of promoting and spin. Make the most of it by getting your message out. Detail out your big picture, connect the dots and find the meaning. Get clear on your ‘why’ as our philosophies provide the inspiration that fuels ambition and also attracts others when they understand our message. What would you like to share in a big way, and what does your audience look like? How would it feel to get the finer points of your knowledge consolidated?

Include boundaries, this is an earth sign after all. You’re less private than you are communal and tend to prefer a social approach over a personal one, so opening your home to unexpected friends or even sudden visits from old family friends will support you this week. You may take up an invitation to stay somewhere new or book a spontaneous hotel or rental to spice up your romance with an unexpected change of scene. Whatever spur of the moment decision you make, doing things differently at home or pattern-breaking your habitual emotional responses will pay off in your intimate life.
