Virgo Full Moon
Mutable March Madness
March 7, 4:40 am PT (Your Time)
Swollen with the deep ocean light from a Pisces Sun, the ripe Virgin Moon has much to sort through in her fullness. One hour after the Sun and Moon strike their exact opposition at 16 degrees, Saturn lurks shadowless into his new Piscean pond. Exposing the Dark Lord's demoted ingress, Our Lady of Mutable Madness works to balance edgy feelings at the threshold of structural change.
Saturn has dominated in his home signs of Capricorn and Aquarius since 2018. Finding his sea legs in the watery realm of Pisces for three-ish years may not be easy. Reigning in the ineffable requires patience. Fortunately, Saturn is known for thriving in the crucible of creation. Just prepare yourself for the inevitable spin of unintended consequences and orbits of disruption.
Languishing in the sign of the Fishes, Mercury, Luna’s water-logged host, awkwardly tries his hand at poetry. Unreasoned words gush past his lips in a fountain of drivel, sending stealthy spells of meaning straight to the heart. Co-present with the Sun and Neptune, Luna’s desire for detailed analysis must be met with intuitive sprays of whimsey. A poem can mean something different to everyone who reads it. A life can mean something different to everyone who lives it.
How are you writing your story as the tides of fortune change? Commitments made now will have long-lasting repercussions.
Balancing on one foot, Luna cites the quiet confidence that has been building throughout the yin part of the year. Spring, metaphorically and literally, is right around the corner. Doing her best to let go of comparisons, she secretly sidles up to Jupiter in Aries, who offers abundant assurance via their antiscion.
Longing to harvest the fruits of her labor, an aura of disquiet ricochets from earth to air to water. Lovely Luna is embroiled in a messy T-square with Mars at the helm in Gemini and Neptune opposing alongside the Sun. This is Luna's mutable tribe, though, unlike her less-tidy compadres, she prides herself on perfecting and ordering the world around her. Their unruly expression rattles her sense-making and becomes a source of aggravation. Words get twisted. Facts are hard to discern.
“Fair Maiden, scrutinizing a poem is challenging when the fairies recite their prose.” It’s not the measure of things that needs our attention. This is a story of taking chances, not relying on crumbly dry particulars. Providing testimony and stretching the bounds of what’s possible, Uranus makes a trine to Luna and invites new experiences. Getting things right and having big expectations dies on the vine in the world of duality. Shake things up and trust all will be well. Your inner guidance has its’ own litmus test.
Ruled by Venus via Egyptian Bounds and Decan, our Lady of Meticulous Magnification sees the beauty in everything. As she sifts through the evidence, bringing order to chaos, the Fishes call her to sink back into a warm bath of creative mayhem, disturbed but attuned.
Today, like every other day,
we wake up empty and frightened.
Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading.
Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
The Full Moon phase is associated with illumination, clarity, overwhelm, and exhaustion. Shadow box with the muse, and take care of your earthly needs. Provide context as needed, but don’t split hairs. These are the final days of the yin half of the year. What learning can you anchor from the last six months? Name it. Frame it. Own your successes and failures. The Moon in Virgo loves that kind of analysis.
As Luna gives up her light to the dark sky, she does so in anticipation of the next New Moon at 0 degrees of Aries. It will be a whopping fresh start that occurs at the Equinox. One that is bound to stoke our deepest needs for liberation and authenticity. Between now and then, the cosmos is a swirl of activity, including three planetary ingresses and an active Third Quarter Moon phase. Stay tuned!
