Virgo Full Moon

Virgo Full Moon
22 Virgo 13
Two weeks ago we activated the lunar month with the Pisces Solar Eclipse. This event was both a closing of the Pisces/Virgo eclipse cycle, which we won’t experience again for about nine years and it was also the beginning of the 29- day Pisces lunar month. Pisces is as we discussed the last sign of the zodiac and next month we will launch the new lunar year with the Aries New Moon. We seem to have one foot in the release and one foot in the future. We continue this process of - release and assess with the Virgo Full Moon who will push the questions “What do we need to let go” vs “What works?”
The chart for the Full Moon has Mercury conjunct Sun oppose Moon and all three square Saturn. Yikes. That is a lot of tension and is an opportunity for a lot of misguided thinking and feelings to be processed for the three days of full moon. It does not mean however it is guaranteed to ibe a rough three days since Pluto is in harmonious aspect with the Sun and Moon. As long as we are growing internally, finding the truth internally we can shed for our future. For those who get their brains in a tizzy they may find it a bit more challenging. Consider slowing down and ask what is really going on?
After all the Full Moon in Virgo can get caught in the weeds. We are so sure that the answer to the problem is ‘this’ and then we realize later that if we had only had some perspective and honored the bigger picture that the problem was not ‘this’ but instead something different and probably more meaningful --a ‘bigger this.” For example, is “this” running around pleasing various family members and getting stressed? Or is the “bigger this” telling the truth and drawing a line? Where we say, “your crazy is not my problem” and getting on with our life and future in a more meaningful way.
On this Full Moon expect areas that are emotional cul-de-sacs to be put in our view.
Pisces is sensitive and gentle and can care about much and at the same time Pisces can be lost, naïve or cold and negative. With Full Moon in Virgo we have to ask, “What emotionally works ---really?” Are you so negative that it is off putting? Who is not returning your phone call as fast as they used to in the past? Are you alone too much? How is that working? Where are we too naïve? Where are we caring too much or more to the point how is our caring misguided? Or perhaps it keeps us small and safe. Is this working? At the same time Saturn in Sag is asking us to honor truth. But we should not throw the baby out with the bathwater in some righteous move, which is the yucky side of Saturn in Sag.
This Full Moon is a tricky balancing act as we:
Acknowledge that which works but not get caught in the weeds.
Give ourselves some perspective and look for bigger issues that need to be cleaned up
Find the truth inside as we look at everything that pops up for three days but don’t get righteous. Find our inner counselor or mentor or ask someone really smart whom we respect for advice.
Find the emotional center and ask if you are cold, delusional or misguided and if the answer is really confusing then again go internal for the truth and then ask for some advice.
And above all, find faith in the middle of everything that comes up to view. For three days consider if there are no accidents and everything is part of a bigger picture—what is true and what is your next move?
Deep in our souls we are ready for this Full Moon, which is just two weeks before we get our compass set on our new year next month. Make the most of it.
Happy Purim to my friends who celebrate this fun holiday.
I heard my neighbors celebrating last night in preparation!
