The Moon sets the emotional tone as it transits through the Zodiac signs. It changes signs every 2 1/2 days. You can work with this rhythm to "go with the flow" of the Moon. You can use it to know the general feeling tone to expect.

In mutable earth sign Virgo, the mood is geared toward busy productivity and adjusting with minor tweaks here and there. It favors clearing, refining, purging, detox-ing and organizing. It favors launching self-improvement schemes. Your steps may be more purposeful, and this helps you with tasks that require patience and focus on details. You can get into a zen-like groove of action, so mundane tasks like cleaning don't seem so laborious. You want to be working and seeing signs of tangible effort.

The Moon in Virgo favors big tasks that are time-consuming and require concentration. Activities like gardening (especially weeding and pruning), de-cluttering, cleaning closets and other storage areas and catching up on chores.

Mental puzzles, games and reading satisfy the active mind under a Virgo Moon. Conversations are full of everyday analysis of events and people, sometimes critical or fault-finding. Practical solutions come now, and it's easier to break goals down into steps.

This fleeting transit puts health on the radar, and is a good time to look at your daily routine. It favors refinements to diet or exercise, so that the body system functions better.

Some power actions under a Moon in Virgo: drink lots of water, fast, stretch, walk or jog, volunteer, add finishing touches, write or edit, give and take some constructive criticism, encourage a loved one to keep trying, de-toxify your home or work space, bring order to chaos, use discernment, refine your routine.
