The Moon in Virgo Wants You to Get Your House in Order

The moon moves into practical and analytical Virgo today, and it’s giving us the patience to evaluate and make important changes to our health, our emotional well being, our relationships, and our physical spaces. You ready to dig in to some self improvement?

The Moon Moves into Virgo at 7:37 AM

When the moon is in the sign of analytical Virgo, we tend to be more productive, health conscious, and critical. It’s a great time to focus on the more mundane and menial tasks that need attention, as our focus and memory are razor sharp and we don’t mind getting into the nit picky stuff. We may be craving things like puzzles, mental exercises, games, and reading.

Take this time to do some organizing, deep cleaning, or Marie Kondo-ing of your home. We can buckle down in a zen-like state and do some serious detailed work if it means that we’ll see tangible results. Gardening could also be a great productive pastime, as could catching up on chores.

Our conversations and thoughts can turn toward the critical, and focus on fault finding with ourselves and others. Self improvement is likely to be at the forefront of our minds, and it would be a good time to evaluate your daily habits and routines, making adjustments to your diet and exercise.

The Moon is Sextile Mercury at 9:29 AM

This morning, the moon in Virgo forms a sextile angle with Mercury in Cancer. This is a favorable aspect, and can put you in the mood for socializing and gabbing. Which, to be fair, can still be quite a challenge in these quasi-quarantined times. But it will be worth it to get creative in your modes of communication today. Take advantage of FaceTime or Zoom calls, and maybe shoot off some voice memos to the people you’d normally chit chat with in person.

You can expect more communication in general right now, with others seeking you out for advice or counsel. Your intuition is on point, and you can feel out other people’s problems and offer the right words of encouragement, or even just a (perhaps virtual) shoulder to cry on.

Your memory is razor sharp, which could bring about some nostalgia or wistfulness. You might be reminded of an old friend, or maybe even hear from one. That clear head also means that routine mental work will feel easier than usual right now. (Sensing a theme today?)

The Moon is Trine Uranus at 10:18 PM

Tonight the moon in Virgo forms a trine angle with Uranus in Taurus. This transit can bring change and excitement to your private life, but without all of the chaos. You could feel a little antsy, like something big is in the air. Trust your gut. As we’ve already discussed, your intuition is sharp today, and if you stay flexible and go with the flow, great things could happen.

You might work up the courage to break the ice with a new friend or possible lover, and you may find yourself attracted to those outside of your normal “type.” Just keep in mind that this energy is more impulsive and playful than commitment-minded. Get out there and try something new, whether in a social situation or in another activity.

This could be a great time to focus on breaking bad habits, or breaking out of relationships that have run their course. Emotional breakthroughs might show up tonight. Stay open minded and pay attention.

The Moon is Square the Sun at 11:29 PM

A bit later tonight the moon in Virgo forms a square with the Sun in Gemini, possibly introducing some stress and irritation in our home or family lives. Right now the sun is shining a light on our more negative inner emotions, habits, and unconscious reactions.

This is a catalyst for us to recognize the old beliefs and self-defeating thoughts that no longer serve us. We should focus on releasing these things from our lives in the time leading up to the full moon in Sagittarius on June 5.
