SUNDAY AUGUST 28, 2011 is a new Moon in the practical intelligent Earth sign VIRGO. In astrology, Virgo rules the sixth house of health, work, and service to others. Sun, Moon, and Venus are all in Virgo on this new Moon so focus on health, nutrition, finances, and all practical matters.
If communications were problematic during the Mercury retrograde that ended Friday August 26, this new Moon brings opportunities to regain balance. Now that Mercury is direct, new endeavors are favored. Time to put your plans into action.
An attitude of gratitude is perfect for this Virgo new Moon. Good fortune is for all, and is strongest for the earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Phoenix, Ox, and Serpent years.
