Saturday morning, at 09.18 AM (Oslo time), we will have this year’s full moon in the mutable earth sign Virgo. As always, a full moon means sun opposing the moon in the sky, and the full moon in practical and rational Virgo, opposing the emotional and romantic Pisces sun may for many of us feel like we need to cry one minute while in the next, we are stuffing all past pain to the very back of our mind while giving ourselves some rational advice about being a grown up.
But with grandmother moon full and bright in the sky, a symbolic “illumination” always occurs in our own lives, and on the Virgo-Pisces axis, it is our old wounds that are illuminated, encouraging us to truly feel the hurt. You need to feel it to heal it as they say. Virgo rules the tools and techniques that we use to deal with day-to-day life, while Pisces rules the tools that we use to deal with our spiritual selves. It is time to find the balance between our head and our heart.
She might not look like it, but like the Buddhist bodhicittas, Virgo is a courageous heart warrior, which makes this full moon a wonderful time for self-healing. Even though perfectionistic Virgo may be prone to stay up in her head, see if you can let your head rest for now, and dive into your heart’s intelligence instead. Know that your true strength and power come from your heart center, and that your heart and soul are capable of amazing things. Trust that whatever is coming up for you around this full moon are the areas in your life that truly needs healing, and let your intuition guide you towards the perfect solution. Tap into the transformative powers of the Divine Feminine & let the moon do her healing magic.
This is not the time to rush around in a desperate search for answers though, so slow down and take time to just breathe for a moment. Try to find a balance between the whimsy Pisces/Neptunian influence and the stricter Virgo/Mercury’s love for overthinking everything. Even though the structured Virgo moon may urge you to try to create order out of everything, see if you can find it in you to trust that whatever is ebbing and flowing around you at this time will form into solid matter when the time is right. Avoid paranoid thinking and do your best to stay open-minded. Trust the timing of your life – it will all fall into place when it is meant to. No sooner. No later. End of story.
If you feel a bit lost and confused and your life kind of feels like a test you did not study for (I hear you), know that this may be the Universe way of trying to stop you from walking down the wrong path. It is time to soften your Ego, let go of your fears of failure and start to trust. Stop resisting & start to surrender. Save yourself from another detour by listening to what the Universe is trying to show you.
Above all, use this Virgo full moon as a time to slow down and heal. Practice self-love and be patient with yourself as you restore those fragile parts of you that may be broken. And honor that quiet voice within, after all, you need to be still to hear your soul’s whisper.
