Full Moon in Virgo March 1st 2018: Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

Moonbeams: Discernment, Materialization, Healing

Major Lesson to be Learned: Being of service to your higher self by grounding its energies into practical reality

Challenge to Overcome: Not wanting to take a hard look at yourself without your rose coloured glasses on.

The Moon will be putting on her spectacles and rolling up her sleeves during this lunation. There are 4 planets in Pisces- Sun, Neptune, Mercury, & Venus which is imbalancing the Virgo Pisces axis to an extreme. Having such a strong conglomerate of Piscean energy will require la luna to put forth some extra efforts and put on her high beams in order to see through the ethereal mist.

Like a Virgo

Virgo is an earthy sign that is methodocial, organized, self sacrificing, and analytical. It’s staring at all this mystical energy plotting how to fix it. On the other hand, Pisces is a sign of mysticism, surrender, dreams, and emotions. It’s staring at Virgo charming and luring it away from a place of rigidity to a place of flow.

Virgo Full Moons are our opportunities to clean up the Virgo ruled area of our lives. We have 1 full moon in this sign every year and every year I usually see a lot of people decluttering, cleaning, organizing, and revamping their lives. This is Virgo’s ‘sacred work.’ Being of service to yourself and humanity through letting go of material fixations and focusing on how you can help others from a place of true sincerity and humility. When a Virgo is able to properly harmonize its Piscean energy, we can see some beautiful practical magic unfold.

Sacred Work involves applying the 3 ways of the Virgo Pisces axis. Here are 3 ways to work with the energies of this moon.

1. Intuition Precision
Have you ever wondered how it is that Virgo’s always seem to know how to plot their next move? As someone with a few Virgo’s in my family, I can honestly say that I have rarely seen them take a misstep. It’s like they can envision exactly how something is going to play out. This is because Virgo’s more than any other sign, trust their intuition. They rely on their hunches and gut feelings as a navigational tool. Being an earth sign, they will follow through on their feelings and take action. It is this precision intuition that will be illuminated for us during this full moon. Trust your instincts and use the Virgo ability to ground those instincts into reality.

2. Making the Mystic Realistic
This actually happens to be my motto and the motto for this blog. Ironically, I started this blog during the Virgo Pisces axis of 2015, so it makes perfect sense. The Virgo Moon is analyzing all of the Pisces energy and is deciding what you can realistically manifest, and what needs to go. For example, you might have been dreaming about having this amazing perfect job, and yet you haven’t taken any practical steps to acquire that job. The Virgo Moon will tell you to hold on to that dream, but to start putting out resumes and do some networking. Or perhaps you have been fantasizing about getting married and starting a family. The Virgo Moon might completely discard this fantasy because you are not in the right place for that and should be focusing on other things in your life right now. Essentially, this full moon will be giving you a reality check in the Virgo Pisces axis area of your life. It’s not about discarding all of your dreams, since Virgo knows that dreams are the architecture of your reality, rather, she wants too ensure that you are healthy and not obsessing over things that are not “serving” you.

3. Feeling is Healing
This is probably the toughest job for Virgo and one that will be the most uncomfortable during this full moon. Virgo’s are known to be quite cranky and moody and this is because they like to keep all of their emotions stored up inside. They are very afraid of vulnerability and the Piscean void of being open and receptive. Virgo’s will store their pent up feelings inside and these feelings get stored in the sacral chakra- the bowels, intestines, liver, and sexual organs. We know energetically that if you are constipated, or are too regular, or are feeling more depressed and anxious- the above mentioned areas will not be functioning properly due to a build of up of emotions. Remember, Virgo rules the bowels, so it tends to have issues digesting its feelings. With such a heavy emphasis on Pisces energy at this time, we will be feeling extra emotional. You want to be careful that you are not suppressing your emotions, but are finding ways to release them. Go for a walk, do some exercise or yoga, meditate, walk barefoot through the grass, cry, do anything that will help to ground you. Virgo is the sign of the harvest so we have an interesting energetic portal opening up for us at this time. Full Moons wrap up cycles, usually two week cycles, but I would go further back and say this moon is wrapping up what began during our New Moon in Virgo back on September 19, 2017. What did you experience back then? With a harvest moon occuring right before Spring, there is a need to release and discern what is healthy for us and what is making us sick. We all know Virgo is the sign of health and healing, so use this Full Moon to listen to your body.
There has been a lot of hype about this lunation for the simple fact that we have a stellium in Pisces. We cannot discount Pisces energy as being illusory and useless, we have to honour all of its magical gifts by using its Virgo opposition to materialize it. This is why the Full Moon in Virgo is about ‘separating the wheat from the chaff’ the most sacred work there is.

New Moon in Virgo September 20, 2017: Solitary Witch

Date: Wednesday September 20, 2017

Moonbeams: Witchery & Surrending

Our New Moon in Virgo features 5 planets in Virgo with some auspicious configurations for magic.

Virgo is the sign of the Virgin which is all about being one with one’s self, and not needing anyone to define you. Virgo is a very solitary sign because it spends a great deal of time alone putting up walls of reserve and solitude in order to examine the divine details from a place of quietude. This encapsulates Virgo in a pristine crystalline structure that allows Virgo to view every situation from a place of clarity and reserve. Mercury, the ruler of Virgo is still conjunct Mars meaning that even Virgo’s are having trouble trusting information coming through at this time. Thought processes have quickened, but at the expense of intuition which is the cleaning agent of Virgo. Mars opposite Neptune is distorting our dreams and wishes, so the energy is very messy and in Virgo season, this is the equivalent to hell breaking loose. Saturn squaring the New Moon is putting pressure on the New Moon to clean up this confusing mess and the Moon is freaking out blaming itself for this kerfuffle.

If we go back to the basic archetype of Virgo, it’s one of solitude and quietude. Releasing blame and self critical behaviour is the best “cleaning agent” at this time. Mercury opposite Neptune is allowing us to weave spells of magic, to use affirmations and mantras to achieve the desired results. Having a heart to heart conversation with your guides and the universe will alleviate the pressures from Mercury and Saturn at this time.

It’s time to prune your broomsticks, get out your grimoires, and polish your crystals. The greatest lesson this New Moon has to offer us is that we are not the Be All and End All. There is no shame in asking the universe for help or calling upon higher forces for assistance. Most of us have been going through some major transformations this last little while do to the eclipses, and as a result we have found that we have been putting extreme pressures upon ourselves in order to get through the changes we have been experiencing. Part of the lesson of the Mercury Mars conjunction has been about releasing control. This is one of the hardest things for Virgo to accomplish, but surrendering control by calling upon higher forces is what will allow you to see the divine in the details as opposed to just a messy situation. We cannot forget that Virgo is a Mutable Earth sign which means that changes we co-create now will have a long lasting effect. This is why Virgo is the sign of the Witch. A witch is only a person who in her centredness invokes spirit to create change.  What a better time for magic?

Full Moon in Virgo: Extracting the Eclipses

Date: March 12, 2017

Time: 10:57am EDT

2:57pm UT

7:57am PDT

22 degrees- Master Builder

Moonbeams- reality check, seeing the bigger picture, processing

Our Full Moon in Virgo is a time of wrapping up the eclipses we experienced in February. This lunation will create a sinking into the soil kind of feeling whereby we will be looking back over the eclipse season and making sense of all that transpired. The Virgo full moon will be reflecting the light of the Pisces sun, teaching us wholeness and forgiveness. This is not the time to be hard on yourself or self-critical, this is the time for self-love and healing. Virgo is the processor (bowels) extracting the nutrients while releasing the toxins. Discerning what needs to stay and what needs to go. In order to integrate the eclipse changes, Virgo’s earth energy is telling us to look at the bigger picture and all the minute details. When we do this, Virgo’s mutable energy will allow us to relax into the process and to trust the divinity of time. Since Pisces is still playing a part during this lunation, use the Virgo ability of observation to pay attention to any signs, symbols, and omens that will be presenting themselves to you from the mystical Pisces realm.

Saturn in Sagittarius will be making a square to Mercury in Pisces, indicating the need to bring structure and stability to your ideas. It’s not enough to just dream it or think it, Virgo will be forcing analysis. Look to see where the moon will be transiting in your chart, because this will indicate where in the house, the divine is living and where the diamonds of the eclipses will be extracted.

Pluto in Capricorn will be trining the moon during this period helping us to transform, check to see where Pluto will be transiting as this will indicate how and where you can harness this power. The Capricorn energy will give you the stamina to do this.

Virgo will be extracting the stones and rocks from the eclipses and using its self love magic to refine them into the shiny bright diamonds they are.

Virgo: The Cosmic Mechanic

Now that the celebratory season of Leo is over, and you have embraced your inner lion king or queen, it is now time to put your kingdom in order. With Virgo, the divine is in the details. Virgo season is one of cleaning and fixing up your life! The symbol of Virgo is the virgin, representing the purity and innocence of this time of year. Virgo’s remove any impurities from their life, whether that be mental, emotional, physical, or material. Out of all the times of the year, now until September 22, is a time when the connection between mind and body is of the utmost importance. Impurity is the root cause of sickness in all its forms. Have a clean state of mind, and the physical body will show the same. Physical toxins represent spiritual toxins.

Virgo season is a time to pay attention to the details, analyze what needs to be removed and what needs to be introduced in your life. Since Mercury is the ruling planet during this time, repairing the broken is to ensure life runs more smoothly down the road. Making adjustments now, is not for the present, but for the future.

Virgo season is the season of fixing things up! This is the time when the cosmos will shine a blaring light down on what is broken. When we find things in the external that have are in shambles, this is only a reflection of what needs to be fixed spiritually within us. Virgo’s are givers, and represent the spiritual gift of service. How can one be in service, if their spiritual selves are cluttered with all that does not serve them? Get our your Book of Shadows and start making notes of what needs to be done. Remember, our outer worlds are always reflecting back to us our inner worlds, so use the Virgo ability of observation to closely observe the omens, signs, and symbols which are communicating to you about your higher self.

So Roll up your sleeves, and become your own cosmic mechanic this season by channeling the divine to know how to fix what is broken, and you will start to see that what needed to be repaired, was only you!

Tips

Green Moss Agate is the perfect crystal for Virgo’s as the green colour correlates to the earth sign and groundedness of this time. It also promotes physical health.

Green Aventurine sharpens the eyes, which will help you to “see” during this very analytical time. This stone is also a lucky stone to bring forth opportunities!
