Moonbeams: Harvesting our karmic lessons, healing our wounds around self-acceptance, and moving forward.
The Full Moon in Virgo will be occuring at the cusp of 1 degree of Virgo. Whenever we have a transit in the first degree of a sign we experience powerful new karmic beginnings. While Full Moon’s are about completion, we must remember that the New Moon in Virgo we had in September had a heavy 9 energy to it…the number of karmic endings. So there seems to be a role reversal between these two lunations. This means that a karmic cycle is completing. What was going on in your life in September 2018? Let’s not forget that in that same month, Chiron went retrograde in Pisces, illuminating the Virgo- Pisces axis.
Moon trine Uranus- breaking free
Mars conjunct Uranus- unleashing the fires
Saturn sextile Neptune- patience, seeing something through
Mercury conjunct Neptune- fact vs. fiction
Venus conjunct Saturn- needing self-love
Virgo is the sign of purity and perfection and the aspects during this FM are cleansing our lives of self-restraint and martyrdom. The day before this FM, Chiron re-entered Aries after being retrograde in Pisces since September. Chiron RX in Pisces was about helping us understand that we cannot wait in the water because life will just pass us by. Self- sacrifice is fine as long as you are whole to begin with. The healing waters of Chiron and Pisces have now been replaced by the purifying fires of Aries. You can read more about this transit here. Also on the day before the FM the Sun entered Pisces, helping us to detach for perspective and Venus conjunct Saturn. This conjunction is about giving up self-crticism in favour of self-trust. So you can see that leading up to the FM we had some cleansing already beginning.
1º Virgo: A traveling pilgrim leaning on his staff, which he holds in his left hand, addressing a small band of men & women.
Denotes one whose early life is threatened by the elements and who will be compelled to endure sufferings, hardships, and trials as an atonement for remote past acts. If his destiny is to live, his destiny is to overcome, and he will be a wise instructor and guide to his fellow-men. It is a symbol of Repaying.
If we look at the Kozminsky symbol for this FM it’s symbol is atonement. This is about paying off karmic debts and finally soothing the past and any regrets or failures we may experienced. I’m expecting many people to make great progress in the Pisces\Virgo ruled areas of their lives during the two weeks the FM is active. If you have been feeling stuck in this axis, prepare to say goodbye to its stagnation.
Virgo rules the harvest because it’s time to reap what we have sown.
I’d also like to mention that the Full Moon is conjunct the royal star Regulus. In many occult rituals the crowning occurs after self-sacrifice has occurred. Expect to wear a crown after all the martyrdom you’ve experienced with Chiron retrograde in Pisces. If you’d like to learn more about this ritual, I’d recommend you watch the horror film ‘Hereditary’ on Netflix which is all about the dark side of the Virgo/Pisces axis.
