September’s New Moon Will Encourage You To Prioritize Self-Care

And even though three signs won’t feel it as intensely, it’ll still be an emotional experience.

Every 28 days, the moon tells a story. Through the trials and tribulations of life, the moon is constantly encouraging and challenging you, forcing you to look within your heart and understand what you’re feeling. All stories begin somewhere, and when it comes to the lunar cycle, it always begins on the new moon. However, not every new moon will have a significant impact on your birth chart. In fact, the September 2021 new moon will affect these zodiac signs the least: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

Taking place in logical, analytical, and detail-oriented Virgo, this new moon is the perfect time to put something practical into motion. Replenishing the cosmos on Sept. 6 at 8:52 p.m. ET, this new moon will encourage you to tinker with your usual routine by prioritizing self-care and organization. It could also encourage some pretty innovative methods and logistical shifts. After all, this new moon will also form a trine with futuristic and revolutionary Uranus, helping you do away with tradition and try something that helps you tap into your more unique and personalized ideas.

And just because this new moon is in rational Virgo doesn’t mean the experience is bound to be less emotional. This new moon also happens to oppose sensitive and empathetic Neptune, which increase your desire for compassion, encouraging you to open your heart and lend a helping hand.

But if your sun or ascendant is in a cardinal zodiac sign, you might not feel this new moon as intensely. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t feel it at all. Here’s what to expect:
