Virgo Full Moon – March 12, 2017 at 7:54 AM PDT


Sunday, March 12, 2017 at 7:54 am Pacific daylight time the moon will be full in the sign of Virgo. This is a full moon after a Solar Eclipse in Pisces at the New Moon on February 26th. This full moon in Virgo has an ample amount of Pisces energy with Mercury, Chiron, Sun, Neptune and the lunar South Node in Pisces. The moon in Virgo is illuminating our need to discern choices for ourselves, consider what we’ve been opening up from in the inner world since the solar eclipse and deciding where we want to improve ourselves bottom line. We cannot go back on where we were without a cost. Virgo says, “GET REAL!”, “Falsehoods to yourself get you no where or even will take you back a step or two.” Pisces prefers softness and surrender to the demanding perfection of the Virgo energy, but there is no escape when you are clear and know what needs to be done to improve whatever it is you are focused on right now. You know the present moment is where your power is at, and what has surfaced in the past two weeks gives you some clarity on where you can do better. Get on with it and make it real. Health? Nutrition? Physical exercise? Cleaning out your closet that’s been overdue for a season? Doing a health cleanse to release toxicity? Cleaning your around your house and making plans for spring gardening? Taking time with your niece or nephew who appreciate your wisdom? Any of these would be thoughtful use of Virgo moon energy.

Mercury is at the end of Pisces and will enter Aries on Monday, March 13th. Mercury is square Saturn in Sagittarius during this Full Moon in Virgo exact by degree. It may be difficult to have a clear sense of boundaries with this combination and authority figures may find it challenging to get the attention of youth who may appear to be more spaced out than usual. Having patience may be the virtue you’ll need until the next lunar cycle starts with the new moon March 27th. Authority figures, police, all will be stressed with the tension of the Saturn square Mercury in Pisces, but also widely square the full moon in Virgo at 22 degress 13 minutes, setting up a potent T-square. Observe the world around you and how this manifests in the collective by local and national news stories. This will not be an easy combination and it will be viewed as abrupt that changes or happens swiftly being in mutable signs. If we remember what Carl Jung said we might open deeper awareness, “When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside of you as fate.” What are you experiencing directly rather than what you are observing in the collective? Know what is yours and what isn’t, especially if you are an empath, having discernment and awareness will lessen suffering from collective energy.

Venus is still retrograde in Aries moving towards reentering Pisces on April 2nd. She will retrograde back to the same degree Mercury is at 27 degrees Pisces at this Full Moon which will amplify the energy of the moment when she stations to turn direct on April 15th. With Venus in Aries I’m reminded of the recent Fearless Girl statue that was place across from the Wall Street Bull, a reminder to the countless corporations that lack women leadership. Her defiant stance is quite the symbol with Venus in Aries. Without women and diversity in leadership positions we lack an ability to have balance in the bigger scheme of life. We can do better and hopefully this moment plants the seed for us to realize new leadership in our business community far and wide.

Uranus and Eris are conjunct in Aries, lighting up the 22 degrees in an opposition with Jupiter in Libra at 21 degrees 21 minutes retrograde. This combination is revolutionary action and change agents in social justice. What stories are you following now that pick up this sudden event or chaotic breakthroughs? I’m sure you can name a few! The full moon moment strikes the chord for another round of high tension in social justice. The recent news story of the US attorneys from the previous administration (USA) asking to resign their positions, one defiantly did not and was terminated on March 11th. Anticipate this news story to continue in the coming weeks. It also shows the Saturn in Sagittarius (law) archetype getting blind-sided with this request from the current administration. In the judiciary branch this is a highly unusual occurrence and will be something we will want to pay close attention. Pluto is still moving slowly through Capricorn at 19 degrees giving the status quo an overhaul that will change it forever.

Mars moved into Taurus on March 9th slowing his fast track through Aries and finding himself in the slow lane which can piss you off when you were used to the flow in Aries. Again, full moon Virgo reminds you that patience is virtue. Almost like hearing your mother say, “Slow down!” or “Chew your food before you swallow!” Taurus is a fixed energy and has endurance to it for some hard work. Burn off any frustration with some sweat! Until the full moon March 27th take time to improve yourself in some small way. Life blooms when we go with the flow, the cosmic flow for this moment is getting real with ourselves. Namaste.
