Virgo Full Super Moon: Blessed by the Sacred Goddess

astrologySuzy Olsen

Pisces season starts with a bang with the assistance of the powerful earth goddess: a super full moon in the sign of Virgo. Upon the sun entering the sign of Pisces on February 19th, we have the full moon in Virgo at zero degrees at 7:54AM PT. Virgo is the sign of the dutiful perfectionist and the sacred servant.She inspires within all of us to find sacred purpose in our work, our mission and our calling. The recent Aquarius new moon brought some exciting opportunities or ideas, and now we can begin to see the results in the earthly realm. 

This full moon is especially wonderful because it will be closest to the earth and will be conjunct the magnificent fixed star Regulus.  Regulus, living at zero degrees Virgo, indicates valiant courage and supreme success.  Because it is the moon joining this star, women will be feeling especially successful, ambitious and independent. Wherever zero degrees Virgo occurs in your own personal chart will indicate where honor, wealth and feminine wisdom exists for you. To use this full moon to the best of its capacity, however, our intentions must be pure. With Virgo, success only comes when our desires are of a high vibration and are for the good of all. 

Mars and Uranus make a trine to this full moon, ushering in even more bravado. These two planets may be motivating us or inspiring us to go further than we thought possible. At this time there may be unexpected breakthroughs and moments of genius. Harness this upbeat energy to further communicate an important message or to finally complete a large project.

Enjoy this glorious full moon energy while it lasts, as the tone will be changing a bit in the coming weeks.  As we move into March, our momentum may be slowed by Mercury stationing retrograde in the sign of the fish. Mercury will station on March 5th, and will be in Pisces for a total of two months. For some, this may mean plenty of confusion in communication or travel plans. All in all, however, I'm excited for the opportunity to go deeper with this Piscean energy. This is the perfect time to deepen a spiritual practice and get in touch with our intimate selves. Perhaps we may reach a new height in spiritual understanding, deepen our meditation practice or begin a new area of study in the realm of the occult. This time may also be packed with dreamy creativity, but we must harness our strength in our dedication to bring our Neptunian visions into reality. 

In Pisces, our options are limitless and our dreams are boundless. 

NEW MOON IN VIRGO

Late this Tuesday evening, west coast time, the New Moon will arrive in the sign of the earthly goddess -- Virgo. The themes that come to mind for manifestation during this fertile time include our health, our ability to work without distraction, conquering our to do lists, taking care of our own well being, and being of service to others. Virgo is a 'responsible' sign, and thrives on organization and a sense of accomplishment in our daily lives. This New Moon is highlighting our ability to thrive in our daily mundane activities, and how to be more conscious in our daily rituals.

For anyone who is self employed, it certainly helps to strengthen one's Virgo qualities. If you can't be responsible for your own daily work, who will? But in order to be most effective in our work, Virgo tells us we must find balance between work and play. After a full day of work, we need time to put up our feet and to spend time with our loved ones. There is a balance that must be achieved in order to stay happy, healthy and sane in our daily lives. 

We are still coming off of the intense energies of the Eclipses in August. This New Moon is a continuation of those themes and goals we set last month. We are taking the next practical steps towards achieving our goals and our destiny. Though we are being reminded of all the work that is still ahead of us, she is telling us to also celebrate all the small victories. As you create your 'to do lists' at this time, congratulate yourself for every little task you check off. The Universe is supporting you right now as you take care of business!

The New Moon occurs at 27 degrees Virgo and is square Saturn and opposing Chiron. These are no small matters. Saturn will be presenting an obstacle or two in our paths. A challenge that we can overcome and learn from. Chiron will be highlighting where we still need healing in our lives. Pay attention to what comes up for you emotionally, and shine a light there. This is not a time to ignore difficulties. We are called to face them and work through them with love and compassion.  

We may experience moments of anxiety and nervous tension. Remember to take care of yourself during this time. Virgo rules our health, and if we allow stress to take over -- we may find ourselves stuck in bed with a nasty cold!

Overall, this is an excellent time to clean house and get organized. Venus will be joining the Virgo party, showing us that there is natural beauty all around us. De-clutter your home and workspace and spend some time outdoors to connect with nature. The earth goddess beckons us to get grounded in our bodies and the spaces we occupy.
