A New Moon in Virgo Tarot Spread

By Tina Gong


Methodical, practical and modest, Virgo represents the side of our human nature that finds joy in serving, honor in duty, and pleasure in organization and and analysis. As the new moon moves under this sign, we are going to examine our own Virgo tendencies - and how they can help or hinder us. 

What the New Moon in Virgo Will Be About

This sign’s high standards are what we’re going to focus on during this half of the cycle. Critical and exacting, Virgo pours over each and every detail - no matter how small. It is this gift for precision and logic that gives her a great talent for problem solving, but at times can also become burdensome - for both those close to her and for herself. 

On her worst days, she can be extremely critical. A perfectionist to a fault, Virgo’s well-meaning feedback can become exhausting. To others, her nit-picking can come off as hurtful and judgmental - we must learn to understand that the standards that we hold for ourselves may not be same as the ones that others do. But as harsh as she can be on those around her, there is no one Virgos are harsher towards than themselves. At times, their inner dialogue can be filled with questions - of what they "should" be doing, how something "should" be handled, who they "should" be.

Suppressing Your Inner “Shoulds” for the Virgo New Moon

What can be truly damaging about perfectionism is that it is immobilizing. Sometimes making a decision and taking action requires a bit of faith. Not everything can be calculated, analyzed and ordered into a neat package. What criticisms we express towards others is only a reflection of the our own insecurities - we dislike in others that which we dislike in ourselves. And what criticisms Virgo verbally expresses is just a fraction of the burden that she carries within. The weight of all this negativity towards oneself can take a heavy toll.

Under the Virgo new moon, we’re going to examine how this perfectionistic drive manifests within ourselves. What are the negative emotions within us that tell us that we are not good enough? How are they affecting our lives? And what do they reveal about us?

To start off, we’re going to go through our decks and find the Hermit card, which is the corresponding card in the tarot to the Virgo zodiac sign. We’re going to use this as a significator of sorts, to help us focus our thoughts on this Virgo new moon.

Shuffle the cards as usual, draw and lay them out as pictured.

  1. Where am I too critical of others? - In what ways have I been too harsh on others? Where can I be kinder to others?
  2. Where am I too hard on myself? - In what ways have I been too harsh on myself? Where can I be kinder to myself?
  3. What is the effect of my perfectionism? - What things, positive or negative, does my sense of order bring me?
  4. What big picture am I missing? - What am I missing out on when I ? What am I not seeing?
