A Virgo new moon ritual to help you harness the potency of the zodiac’s purist.
At 1:29AM EST on September 20, 2017’s new moon in earthy Virgo falls just shy of two days before the Autumnal Equinox. Enjoy this grounded energy by spending time in nature and keeping things short, sweet and simple.
Ritual: Random Acts of Kindness
‘Tis better to give today, as Virgo is the sign of selfless service. For this Virgo new moon, we’ll devote the day to practicing random acts of kindness. Translation? We will give without getting props for our actions—even being generous in a totally anonymous way. There are many ways to do this. For example, you could leave an extra five dollars at the coffee counter to cover the person’s latte who is in line behind you. You could bring a box of cupcakes in the break room at work, with a note that simply says, “Take one!” Drop off clothes at a charity, leave flowers on someone’s desk, offer to bring lunch for a friend who is on an insane deadline. Place a recycling bin in the mail room of your apartment complex for neighbors to file their junk mail in.
Just keep your eyes open while you’re grooving through your day. When you spot little ways to help out in your community, make your move! This doesn’t have to cost a penny. Simple moves count, like helping a mom carry her stroller up the subway steps, sharing a link for a friend’s art show on social media, or bringing an elderly neighbor’s newspaper delivery from their lawn to their front door so they don’t have to trek down the steps to retrieve it.
Heads up for all the people-pleasers and caretakers out there: We know you already give too much on the average day and this exercise should not be used for making sacrifices. For you, the practice will lie in knowing that it’s enough to give something small and within your means. It’s not generous to drain your own reserves; in fact, this can leave the receiver feeling obligated and uncomfortable. Mind the balance—small actions speak volumes!
