The lunar cycle is full of ups and downs, but every part of the process is important. And if you’re one of the zodiac signs affected by the new moon, you know that beginnings can feel just as intimidating as endings often feel bittersweet. If you’re currently staring at a long road ahead, know that it always seems impossible to reach the finish line when you haven’t even taken your first step!

The most climactic moments of the lunar cycle to happen at two different moments: the new moon and the full moon. While the latter is intense and dramatic, the former is a more subtle experience, but that doesn’t make it any less powerful. In fact, the new moon is what launches the whole experience, as it represents the beginning of a new chapter. The themes and situations that tend to pop up during a new moon are often incredibly meaningful, revealing opportunities ripe for the taking. And if you make a point to start a project or commit to a new relationship during a new moon, it will have *that* much more potential to succeed!

However, the dark side of Virgo energy is the way it can leave you feeling scatterbrained and stressed out, especially if you’re struggling to keep up with a mountain of tasks. Because this new moon will square off with sharp-tongued Mars in Gemini, there’s a chance that an information overload may lead to impulsive decision-making. Remember to take a step back and consider the bigger picture before making your move! Virgo always encourages you to plan ahead, but Gemini wants you to fly by the seat of their pants. Too much friction one way or the other could lead to chaos, so remember to take things one step a time. Expecting perfection is a recipe for disaster, so instead of dreaming of an overnight success, spend time appreciating the small victories along the way.

If your sun sign, moon sign or—most importantly—your rising sign falls under any of the following zodiac signs, the upcoming new moon will be a powerful start to something beautiful. Here’s why:
