The New Moon on Friday, August 30, 2019, at 6 degrees Virgo has a feisty accent, with the Sun and Moon being so closely conjunct Mars. However, Venus is also within a 4° conjunction adding a softening edge to any overly nervous Virgo energy.
The August 2019 new moon is the best moon phase in a very long time for starting something new or reenergizing something. It is especially good for romance so you could find your true soul mate or reinvigorate a marriage.
New Moon conjunct Mars brings an abundance of energy and initiative which must be used in a safe way. If this hot energy were to build up in your body, it could be released spontaneously in an uncontrolled and destructive way, hurting yourself or others.
Sun trine Uranus brings positive change and exciting opportunities. Increased freedom and self-confidence allow you to express the more flamboyant, or kinky side of your personality.
Arguably, with these planets and the New Moon all in the famously finicky sign of Virgo, we need to be careful not to be too critical or pessimistic. With Venus bringing up the rear in the Virgo stellium, this is where the healing balm might work its powers or where someone’s ability to make an attractive offer could soften an otherwise harsh and uncomfortable situation. Even though Venus placed in Virgo is in its fall: unable to operate with quite so much dignity, strength, or even neutrality, as when it is placed in some of the other signs.
Managing to meet the needs of a variety of individuals, all very different from one another, may be the true challenge here, with the one-size-fits-all, traditional strategy of Saturn feeling a bit outmoded. Follow your instinct and be confident about making changes and starting new projects. Your love life will benefit from increased sex drive, physical attractiveness, and open-mindedness. Internet dating could bring an exciting new romance.
