3/9/21 Virgo Full Moon


For me, Virgo speaks of implementation. The Pisces-Virgo Axis is one of practicality vs intuition, regarding what we perceive, feel, and do; both seeking to implement a shift in practice & perspective.


We often hear of Virgo being an overly analytical archetype, but this is a common misconception of sun-sign astrology. Sigh.


Virgo is ruled by Mercury, (appearing to now move direct in Aquarius today) & unlike Gemini who is also ruled by this planet of connectivity & communication, Virgo seeks to establish action through thought rather than merely express thought impulsively. The archetypal energy here is a bit more pragmatic. More discerning. We take expression one step further in Virgo, refining, honing our ideas, & becoming a bit more mindful of how our thoughts can also serve the minds of others. How can we express & implement our inner vision & put it into action in the world?


Earth-ruled Virgo often possesses an inner knowing of which details are important & which are simply distractions. We actually have 7 Earth oriented energies at play at the time of the Full Moon; Venus & Uranus conjunct in Taurus, & Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, + the South Node occupying most of Capricorn's realm. We may be (and have been) feeling heavy lately.


This is the last Full Moon of the astrological/astronomical year, & the cycle begins again with the March Equinox & the Sun's crossing of the celestial equator.. more on that in the future.


So, I feel like there is a lot of forward momentum that I'm trying to attain, to almost lift the weight of the current season (winter, here in the northern hemisphere) & reinvent parts of myself that have been withdrawn, diligent, & weary.


The Full Moon always offers a reminder to make adjustments & readjust our path forward for the next two weeks by focusing on eliminating that which is not steering us towards our goals. With the Moon closer to Earth than normal (nearing perigree) it may have a stronger influence. Find balance by incorporating connection to both Earth & Water during the days surrounding 100% fullness, or simply meditate on these elements in the mind. Best to find a body of water near trees, but weather is not always so accommodating !!
