This Full Moon is causing some beautiful shifts and causing some inner earthquakes in her making. The Moon is related to Divine Feminine wisdom and intuition. The Moon has a direct influence on Earth as witnessed in the tides of the oceans and human emotions.
The Full Moon in Virgo is at the end of the lion's tail constellation sending us full force into the truth behind what is getting in our way. With so many planetary influences this month I definitely recommond getting intentional with this Full Moon.
Let's get into it a little bit. Saturn is a planet that deals with karma and changes astrological signs every 2.5 years. Any time there is a change in sign is an opportunity to close the door on that which has been present throughout the duration of that planet's placement. Saturn is associated with the masculine in relation to a father figure. He outlines rules, regulations, time lines and boundaries. Saturn is at home in the Capricorn which is where we are currently feeling his energy. March 21 sends Capricorn into Aquarius. The past 2.5 years have led us into perfectionism, leadership, planning, fears and realisitic expectations. These all have shadow sides to them and it is always important to witness how you personally have been affected if at all by this energy. What is important in noticing with this closure is the ending of a karmic cycle as well. What have you been putting off or fighting with these past 2.5 years. For me, it was finally letting go of a part time job at the beginning of January. We ended a decade when going by Gregorian calendar, we are in a leap year, and Mercury stations direct on March 10 as well. We have so many influences floating around right now it is important to stay grounded and remember that actions take time, growth takes time and progress is progress no matter how big or how small. When in Mercury retrograde it is adivsed to abstain from beginning new projects but utilizing what we have in front of us due to mass communication errors.
I am not an expert, I am using my intuition and the knowledge I do have over what I do know in these areas.
We also have Chiron coming into play as he is coming to a full 6 month cycle at the end of the month as well. Chiron is known as the "wounded healer" by many. It is what teaches us the alchemy of pain; it is through our pain that we are able to guide others through theirs; it is through our pain that we are able to conjure the strength to do it again. Chiron is a big influence on my chart. Chiron is an asteroid with a rather unique and erradic orbit, goes with its messages. Simply pay attention to what your lessons have been these past 6 months and where you can still grow into these lessons.
OKAY! This Full Moon in Virgo and what does it mean?
This is our final Full Moon of the winter here in the Northern Hemisphere and it is a time to see what we have been through in the darkest months. The winter is the direction of North, the element of Earth and associated with Yin energy, the feminine. It is a time where we withdraw from social activities as often and we spend more time in doors, in solitude and eating nourishing, warm meals. The winter is a time of self-reflection as we close out a year and welcome a new one. It is time to take stock and to let yourself witness your darkness from a place of compassion and understanding. So often we feel lost in the dark, the winter is your time to become comfortable seeing in the dark with more hours spent in the shadows of night than in the light of the day. This Full Moon is in Virgo while the Sun is in Pisces. Pisces is a mysterious and wise sign, like the essence of Frankincense. Pisces draws us to be dreamy and intuitive while following the guidance of our highest self and trusting our intuition. There is also an element of emotional alchemy present within this sign as water is the ruling element over our emotions and our sacral chakra. Virgo is quite different. Virgo is a sign of productivity, perfectionism and care. This is a sign of action. There are always shadows as I mention. With this Full Moon having so much energy in clearing due to the other influences I have mentioned and some I have not, this is important to looking at.
This Full Moon in Virgo can be used to witness where you have been holding yourself back out of fear that it is not perfect or others will judge it because it is not so. It is asking to seek balance from over performing, over giving and being too busy in general. It is the final Full Moon, the Worm Moon, where the earth is softening and things are beginning to thaw. This is the opportunity to let your winter woes melt with the snow and to witness the lessons found in the darkness of winter.
When I think of this Full Moon I begin to get questions such as: What are habits that are not allowing me to water my seeds for the Spring? What have others shown me over the winter months? Who can I let go of? What relationships can I nurture? How have I been treating myself? How have I been treating those closest to me?
I am also fighting off a cold, which I know so many others are as well. There is a physical sickness associated with this time of the year as we are clearing out before calling in. People, energetic parasites, energetic chords, energetic debris are all things that are being cleared. How many of you have had old lovers, old friends or acquiantances find their way into your life some how whether that is directly or indirectly?
Think about it.
Let yourself have the time, drink lots of herbal tea, Chamomile is a powerful ally with this Full Moon, have salt baths or foot soaks, go for walks, write yourself a letter of growth and appreciation, do something nice for yourself.
I am going to leave it at that.
I am holding a Full Moon Online Clearing and Healing circle the evening of the Full Moon on Monday, March 9 from 8-9:30pm. Please check out the event on my website and register through my online store. I promise, it will be magic.
