New Moon Musings
by Kathy Crabbe
New Moon In Virgo – September 8, 2010.
This month the New Moon enters the earthy, mutable sign of Virgo, the Virgin. During your New Moon Meditation allow yourself to focus on self-healing: nutrition, exercise, work/life balance, building and nurturing healthy habits, body/mind connections and preventative medicine. Virgo the Virgin is self-sufficient, service oriented and perfect as she is with so much to teach us.
When the Moon enters Virgo on September 8th get ready to:
- Study, learn, train and organize your compassion into practical action
- Learn about medicinal herbs for healing
- Delve into the ancient mysteries
- Focus on self-improvement
- Clean up your act
- Renew yourself through play, whimsy and quirky jokes
More About The Lunar Cycles
“Female nature is profoundly lunar at its biological base” ~ Vicki Noble.
The new moon is the perfect time of the month to plant seeds of intention for the month ahead. It is a time of trust, of beginnings and of letting go into intuition. The sign that the moon is in reflects qualities of your inner self and being-ness. Each month there is at least one new moon that will rise at sunrise and set at sunset. Astrologically speaking this means that the sun and the moon are in conjunction. Take time to realign with the moon each month because with practice you’ll discover that you can create all you desire and so much more.
The Great Spirit said, ‘purity’
Have faith that all your hard work will
Come together and be of service to all
You are the recorder of all wisdom.

Introducing The Moon Muses
The Moon Muses are intuitive guides and question askers that offer insight and wisdom along with exercises to heal and inspire you. They are creative leap takers forming a glowing moonlit bridge between your rational self and your higher self, a self that dwells in pure intuition, clairvoyance (clear seeing), meditative reflection and dreaming. This month you will meet a Gemstone Muse, Pink Jasper and Alice, a Lefty Oracle Muse. I encourage all of you to create a Moon Musing Journal to record your monthly moon explorations (more about this in my eCourse, Awaken the Divine Feminine).
My Version of Virgo: Alice Lives Here
“Alice” is part of a series of 500 or so left-handed (my non-dominant hand!) drawings I created over a period of five years. These drawings were later turned into an oracle card deck that I use for giving Soul Readings.
Alice has appeared to remind all of us that if you’re happy, you’re on track!
Now is a good time to start tracking your progress to see how far you’ve come. One way is by writing down your dreams and keeping a dream journal to keep track of which dreams have manifested in the real world and which haven’t. Try creating some colorful charts to organize things in a detailed way, such as tracking your dreams according to the moon and then looking back to see which moon phase and sign had the most effect upon your dreams.
A Dream Visioning Exercise
1. Keep track of your dreams this month by starting a dream journal to take note of the moon phases, moon and sun signs, your menstrual cycle, the day of the week, your moods and any other interesting tidbits of information that may be influencing your dreams.
2. How is your waking life influencing your dreaming world? Can you spot any connections that may be influencing your dreams?
3. Take note of your favorite, most wondrous dreamscape in the coming month.
4. If you could request dream guidance what would you like to know?
5. How have your dreams guided you in the past and have you ever connected with your spirit guides or ancestors in your dreams, and if so what happened?
Create a simple hanging mobile of your favorite dreamscape by cutting out images and words to represent your vision. Hang it somewhere prominent in your home and see what happens, making sure to take note of it in your Dream Journal.
A Message from Pink Jasper – Earth Momma!
You community needs you, no matter how large or how small your contribution! Your insight and input are invaluable and need to be shared. Take some time to journal about the different ways you could share your insights with your community in an inspired way. And yes, virtual communities count too, but Virgo being an Earth sign really wants you to get your hands dirty with the real stuff, not just virtual dirt so this means taking action in your surrounding community as well!
Action Hero Time
Take a moment to envision yourself inspiring, healing, and organizing others in your community. Pretend you are an action hero – who are you? Feel free to make up a name for yourself based upon your super-human powers or borrow a name from a well-known action figure.
Reserve a few pages in your journal to express yourself by describing your action hero look, your outfit, your special powers and all the amazing things that have made you the super special action hero that you truly are.
