Happy Full Moon in Virgo, Everyone!
Every Full Moon we are presented with a great opportunity to become aware of two opposing energies, what they represent, and are given a chance to exercise our ability to merge their energies. This full moon highlights the analytical perception of the mind (Virgo) with the compassionate insight of the heart (Pisces). We are encouraged to learn spirituality as a practice of respecting our physical body, acknowledging our mind’s ability to make choices, right or wrong and honoring the intelligence within that guides us all.
Besides the Sun and Moon’s opposition, other celestial lights have also important messages for us to pay close attention to: A group of planets in Pisces are employing imaginary and dreamlike blindfolds to prevent us from seeing the practical side of life.
Logical Virgo Moon is rationally challenged as she opposes sensitive Piscean energy that is so deeply connected to the past and things that are coming to an end. Virgo’s ruling planet, Mercury (Pisces) squares Saturn (Sagittarius) causing people to engage in ‘blabbering’ pessimism and creating mental blockages.
On this Lunar Event, Uranus (Aries) opposing Jupiter (Libra) creates a tendency towards promoting erratic and rebellious behavior. It’s wise to not make your partner feel caged in. Uranus quincunx to Virgo Moon requires adjustment in attitude of both parties; or chaos can be created. Difficulty in articulating our feelings and desires can be a hindrance in all relationships or partnerships.
Venus recently moved into Aries (detriment), started it’s retrograde cycle on Mar 4 and will remain retro until April 15. A “second chance” perhaps, to rekindle a once “thought to be failed” friendship –try it!
Mars entered Taurus (detriment), on Mar 10, and will remain in the same sign until April 21. It is important to refine our definition of security, values and desires.
The Full Moon in Virgo brings focus on organizations, bookkeeping, preparing for taxes and basically tackling all of life’s mundane necessities. We are reminded to purge destructive habits and be most attentive to our health and healing, purifying toxins in the body as well as scrutinizing cleanliness practices.
On Sabian Symbol, an Astrological Mandala by Dane Rudhyar…
23 deg, Pisces: “A materializing medium giving a séance; the ability to give one’s own vital energy to substantiate one’s conscious ideals or unconscious desires.”
23 deg. Virgo: “A lion tamer displays his skill and character; the need to tame one’s vital energies in order to fulfill one’s destiny.”
The ancients taught very simple and direct ways to live peacefully. But as time went on, people embellished the teachings until they became a very complicated body of knowledge.
We don’t need a fancy lifestyle. We only need to know when to plant grain and when to harvest it. Those who harvest timely are those who ultimately gain.
