​Virgo New Moon: The Power of Habit

Exclusively written for the Beach House by Lennon Mara of Moon + Quartz

The Virgo New Moon is your chance to set intentions for the patterns and habits that will support your goals, hopes, wishes and dreams over the next twelve months.
Creating order is a creative act, a form in and of itself — and it’s the most pragmatic, intelligent response you can call upon anytime your life hits the skids. Our habits and patterns are more than the sum of their parts; the structure they contribute to our days buoys us, keeps us afloat. Think back to the last time you wake up late for work. How did you feel? Insecure, a little lost somehow, a little less in control? This is the power of our habits. This is the power of ritual. This is the power of everyday magic.
Changing our habits is also how we transform the material reality of our circumstances. Through small, practical, consistent, upwardly-focused and intentional steps, we can change the material reality of our circumstances. This is Virgo’s domain.
Virgo energy asks us to find that midpoint where serving others is, at the same time, serving ourselves. It asks us to consider small shifts in our daily work and process, shifts that allow us to enter into a deep state of flow, belonging, and joy in our efforts.
Use the New Moon to trace over the small, everyday moments that structure your life: where can you make shifts that create the possibility for more spaciousness, more balance in your daily experience?
Stay practical with this energy. Avoid trying to take shortcuts, or attempting to cheat the system. This is about getting clear on what you want, and putting in the work to define the steps that you need to take to get you there. It’s about creating support for your dreams through small, disciplined structures (like your habits and routines) that will transform your life over time.
The one key during this time? Focus on what is most practical for you in each moment. Fresh ways of bringing your heart into your work and into the world will arise with surprisingly natural ease.
Please note that Dark Night will not be taking place this month. But don’t fret, our signature event will be resuming on the Friday closest to the New Moon in October. We are looking forward to seeing you then!
