This New-Moon-in-Virgo Baño Will Help You Align Your Priorities

As summer's warm sun rays give way to a cooler breeze before autumn blows in, we can indulge in the final new moon of the season. The new moon in Virgo arrives like a schoolteacher checking in on the goals you're setting for a productive school year. Now is the time to gain some order and perspective after that wild double supermoon ride in August. Additionally, with several planets in retrograde, you may be feeling pulled in all directions, but Virgo assists in alignment.

The Super Blue Moon in Pisces had us diving deep into our intuition and looking out for signs of illusions. Now that the veil has been lifted, Virgo steps in to organize things with a fresh perspective. New Moons are a clean slate, ripe with possibilities and the space to manifest just about anything your heart desires as long as it's in alignment with your journey. Virgo thinks big and seeks perfection with an unmatched precision. So, tread lightly and make sure you're not too hard on yourself during this lunar phase.

Take Virgo's perfection-seeking ways as the starting point of embracing your flaws and being perfectly you. It's good to be precise in your manifestations, but trying to be perfect all the time can be exhausting and fruitless. Go easy on yourself. After all, Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, which is currently in retrograde until the 15th.

When thinking about what you want to wish for under the Virgo New Moon, consider the worker bee mentality of this zodiac sign. Areas to focus your wishes on include work and jobs, efficient organizing, and helpfulness. Set intentions for a healthy work-life balance or adapt to a minimalistic lifestyle to avoid clutter in your home.

Virgo rules physical health. If you desire to establish healthier lifestyle habits, wish for it under the Virgo New Moon. If you overanalyze things, leaving you uncertain and confused about making final decisions on just about anything, you can wish to have these traits easily lifted from you. Since Virgo rules excessive perfectionism, you can wish to release self-defeating traits and create space for less worry, self-criticism or criticism of others, and workaholic tendencies.

As with each zodiac sign, Virgo is associated with specific physical parts of the body. So, if you struggle with constipation, diarrhea, or any ailments impacting digestion, intestines, and bowels you can also wish for healing in this area during the New Moon in Virgo.

Spiritual-Bath Recipe For September's New Moon in Virgo


Sea salt

Rosemary, lavender, and/or lemon balm herbs

Chrysanthemums or buttercup flowers

Florida Water

Clary age, chamomile, eucalyptus, and/or patchouli essential oils

Sage and palo santo

Amethyst, lapis lazuli, jasper, and/or carnelian crystals

Green candle


1. Begin by burning some sage and as the smoke wafts through your space and around you, pray and set your intentions for the Virgo New Moon.

2. Follow that by burning some Palo Santo, and continue to speak your truth, tapping into that throat chakra.

3. Now, begin filling your bathtub and pour two cups of sea salt into the warm water, using your hands to mix in the salt until it dissolves. Close your eyes, feel the sensation of the water flowing through your fingers and over your hands, become aware, and give thanks.

4. Next, choose which essential oils you feel called to use and pour several drops into the water. Mix in with your hands, and feel free to have a full conversation with the Universe as you prepare your New Moon ritual.

5. Follow that with several splashes of Florida Water. Breathe in the fragrance and give thanks for the purifying qualities of the spiritual cologne.

6. Dance and move your body intuitively as you grab a few handfuls of your chosen herbs. Add them to the water, mixing them in with your hands and saying words of gratitude to the herbs.

7. Finally, cover the top of the bath water with flower petals. Save some of the flowers in a vase for a Virgo New Moon altar.

8. To create your altar, first choose where you want it to be. You can create it in the bathroom so you can see it as you soak, or you can place it somewhere you'll sit and reflect after your bath, like a nice reading nook.

9. Place your candle next to the vase of flowers and strategically place your chosen crystals around it. Don't give it much thought. Allow the crystals to go where they'd like, with your intuition leading the way.

10. When you've got everything ready, submerge yourself in the sacred bath you've just created for yourself. Feel the ingredients on your physical body, knowing they are impacting your spiritual body as well. Soak for 40 mins, dedicating 20 of those minutes for cleansing, and the remaining 20 minutes for healing.

11. Step out of the bath knowing that a shift is taking place, whether you can feel it yet or not. Allow yourself to air dry or towel dry with a white or light-colored towel. Watch as your manifestations grow over the next six months until the Full Moon in Virgo on Feb. 24th.
