This practical Virgo full moon is giving us an opportunity to get our house in order before the middle of March when things may get a bit overwhelming…it means buttoning down the hatches, as the more prepared we are for the storm, the easier it will be to navigate the waves.
The two Aquarius new moons reminded us that we are all interconnected, and its airy energy opened up lots of synchronisities and connections, making February an interesting month for new developments and a significant feeling of moving forward.
Over this full moon, we can finally free ourselves of things that are still hanging on but no longer serving us. Virgo is one of the most practical signs of the zodiac and focuses us on discipline and structure, which is a pleasant respite from the emotional bashing we have had lately.
Virgo is symbolised by the Goddess Ceres, and represents the love a mother has for her child. This moon reminds us of our symbiotic relationship with nature as Ceres is responsible for the fertility of the land and taught us how to grow, preserve and prepare the grain and corn for the harvest. As the sun begins to warm the cold ground and nature begins flourishing again, this full moon reminds us of the natural cycle of birth, growth, decay and death.
Virgo helps us analyze our situation from a more rational and unemotional perspective and shows us the way forward. Sometimes it is hard to let go of memories, represented by the stuff that we hide in boxes and bags. When we accept the natural cycle of life and see this period as a time of growth, it is easier to let go of the past and allow new things to enter our lives, and this full moon gives us the energy we need to propel our projects, careers and creative endeavours forward.
If you’ve been feeling sluggish and heavy over the last few months this is the moon to take up a sport, activity, change your diet, go on a detox and go out in nature. Listen to your intuition, which will become stronger over the next two weeks, and take action.
In relationships, this moon can upset the balance between self-reliance and dependency. Beware the inner critic creating inertia and feelings of insecurity, with the earthy, practical and independent energy of Virgo in conflict with the emotional, sensitive needs of Pisces. Don`t panic if things get churned up some things need to be aired and this is the time to speak, which can seem disruptive at the time, but is liberating.
The key to successfully riding this moon wave is to keep busy doing the things you love and make you happy. Use the Virgo energy to boost your will-power and determination to make changes and start putting into action the intentions you set out on the Aquarius new moon.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words of Pablo Naruda:.
“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”
