Theme: Collaborate and Grow

Back in February, at the new Moon in Aquarius, you were asked to open your eyes to the possibility and potential, especially when it came to finding solutions to challenges. How did that go? Did you believe you didn't have to do it all alone? Perhaps you realised that being part of a partnership could be beneficial? Collaboration can take many forms, what does this look like for you?

New Moon in Virgo - Creating Strong Systems

GMT - 27th August @ 09:16 | Eastern Time 27th August @ 04:16| Pacific Time 27th August @ 01:16| Mountain Time 27th August @ 02:16| Australian Eastern Time 27th August @ 18:16| Australian Western Time - 27th August @ 16:16|

Theme: Creating Strong Systems

Foundations, systems, processes.....when these things are in place, life runs more smoothly, with less effort, giving you more time to do the things you love. During the new Moon in Virgo cycle, build the things you need to create a strong foundation for you to live the life you love. Don't be afraid of setting up systems, processes and boundaries to make your life easier.
