Full Moon in Virgo - Putting Our Spirtual Visions in Order

Today March 12 at 7:45am EDT the Moon was at it apex, at 22 degrees Virgo. This full Moon is in Virgo, the sign of healing, day to day work, and organization. As the Moon rules our emotions, we have a strong desire to get things organized in our life, to adjust our schedules, clean up our homes and our emotional baggage.

The Oracle of the Radiant Sun

A full Moon occurs when the Moon is opposite the Sun. It brings out conflicts between our conscious and subconscious minds, and is an opportunity for healing and resolution. The Sun in Pisces and Moon in Virgo, show there is a need to find a way to incorporate some of the spiritual lessons we have learned (Sun in Pisces) into our everyday routines (Moon in Virgo). This full Moon occurs at 22 degrees Virgo, so take a look at what house this occurs in your chart, to see where this will show up in your life. Is it in the fourth house - maybe you need to make an altar or find a spot in your home to reflect your spiritual leanings? Is it in the sixth house - how can you bring your spirituality into your work? Etc.

The Sabian symbol for 22 degrees Virgo is "a Lion Tamer Displays his Skills and Character". This reminds me very much of the Strength card in the tarot. It shows that this full Moon, we can will not tackle our issues with brute force, but rather with patience and gentleness. Calmness and self confidence will take us farther than trying to impose our will by being demanding.

The full Moon is opposite Chiron, the asteroid representing the wounded healer. Old wounds, especially spiritual wounds will show up now. Use this Moon as an opportunity to release and forgive in this area. There is also an opposition to Mercury in Pisces, the planet of communication. We may not be able to put our feelings into words at the time. It may be easier to communicate our feelings through art, especially dance and photography, two art forms Pisces is most comfortable with.

The full Moon has a square to Saturn, showing a conflict between our emotions and the outer structure and expectations in our life. We may long for healing, but be afraid of what others will think of us. It also shows that we may feel limited in our capacity to express ourselves. We may feel more like withdrawing at this time.

The Sun is conjunct with Chiron on this day in Pisces. There is opportunity to shine a light on where we have been hurt. Again, look at where 22-24 degrees Pisces is in your chart, to see what area this occurs. You probably already can guess where this is, by looking at some of the issues that have come up over the past week.

Other aspects on this full Moon are Mercury in Pisces square Saturn in Sagittarius. Again this shows we feel restricted and inhibited in our communications. We must take time to think about and organize our thoughts when expressing ourselves. There is also an opposition between Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries. The planet of expansion and growth, Jupiter is in retrograde, slowing down our sense of forward movement. We want harmony, but this is disrupted by outside sudden events in the world around us.

Use this full Moon as an opportunity to do some healing and letting go, especially spiritually. Find how you can bring the spiritual lessons into your day to day life, and establish this into your routine. Maybe you need time to meditate, or go for a walk? Do you need to make a space for yourself in your home? Or eat a diet that feels more aligned with your health goals or values? This full Moon is a great time to look at these issues.
