On Saturday, March 19th a Full Moon in Virgo will rise at 06:11 pm GMT. Full moons bring increase and culmination and also the opportunity to release aspects of things not working for us. We may feel the full moon energies up to three days before and after the actual event noticing a feeling of increased “fullness” as our emotions and body weight increase.
The energy of Virgo is mental, analytical, investigative, practical and critical. It is an earth sign and also considered the time of culmination and harvest. This Full Moon, in the last degrees of the sign of Virgo at 28 degrees, exhibits mental and practical ‘earthy’ work coming to completion. At this degree, things that one has been mulling over or organizing for some time are finally coming into full form. A death of sorts, the ‘harvest’ is complete, a celebration takes place and then the cycle repeats, but it is in this ‘death’ that the fertility of the natural world replenishes itself.
The Sabian Symbol for this degree is 29 degree Virgo, “A Man is Gaining Secret Knowledge from an Ancient Scroll He is Reading”. (From Linda Hill’s 360 degrees of Wisdom.) “Our ability to translate this ‘Knowledge’ into a practical set of lessons for our day-to-day life assists our progress as we grow and mature”. We harvest new ideas and ways of giving service on a daily basis but tend to always return to the essential truths of a matter. Looking for answers, we tap into the yield of ‘Secret Knowledge’ to plant new ideas for the future. Understanding arrives through patient, steady work constantly replenishing and refining to achieve illuminated inspiration.
“One by one, tiny pieces of the puzzle fit together. What emerges is a complete design of the whole picture. For one can not be without the other. Over emphasizing on the minute details leads one into a frenzy, step back and re-gain balance and ease seeing how you belong into the bigger picture.” ~ Dipali
The Full Moon is in Virgo at 28 degrees on March 19th, 2011. This particular full moon is packed with high nervous tension energy possibly erratic zings and dings. Let’s delve into the astrological aspects happening during the full moon a bit further.
Stress levels may be high during this time. The highly fluctuating energies may certainly add a layer of jarring ripples within emotional waters for people now. Be patient as possible no matter what arises. Tendencies or habits that are out of balance or that are on auto pilot are brought into the light of conscious awareness. With the sign of Virgo highlighted, either you can be highly picky, critical or judgmental or you can break free to heal yourself and restore balance inside. The “inner critic” needs a vacation or at least some new skills on how to be “compassionate (Pisces).” Put that on the to do list and do it! Of course the first urge, during a Full Moon in Virgo is to analyze it out, think about it, chew it to pieces until it is all mush. It may be best to “feel” things out first then the order and information will make sense.
This one is a “Super Moon.” (a term coined by astrologer R. Nolle)
Super Moon represents the Moon is the closet to the Earth, it is called lunar perigee. With the lunar energy (literally influencing the tides of the Ocean) being so strong, symbolically or literally we may experience unusual weather, climate change as well as earth changes such as earthquakes, volcano eruptions etc. The emotional climate may also express this similar movement so let it all purge out if need be. Roll with the waves happening now.
During a Full Moon, the Sun and Moon are in opposition to one another. Sun in Pisces ‘opposes’ the Moon in Virgo, push and pull between the details and the wholeness, find the compromise between both. Blend your practical and feeling aspects so they work as one unite towards finding the solution to any adversity happening now. The Full Moon in Virgo is closely knit symbolically to transiting Uranus in Aries. At the same time the square aspect between transiting Uranus/Pluto is wide but building now. We must be truthful and confront the shadow or negative side and bring more awareness within self and relationships. Uranus/Pluto square can be; intense, powerful, transformative and also there is a bit of disruption possible with the energies now. Cardinal signs: Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn are feeling the dynamic tension, pressure and possible excitement.
With the momentum of energy increasing with 3 planets in Aries so far, you can decide to be a part of things that enhance and support your overall well-being (Virgo) and spiritual evolution (Pisces) or not. Chances to overcome the past and any places you adhere needlessly to being a Victim and move forward to be empowered will come whizzing by. Ready to grab them and move ahead? Jupiter in Aries very close to its opposition aspect to Saturn in Libra – retrograde suggests resolving conflicts between expansion and consolidating.
Helpful Suggestions: Stop often and breathe. Connect with the Universe and let go of the accumulated stress instead of holding onto it. Cry if you need to, shake it off, take a walk, exercise to blow off steam – whatever it takes. Remember, make a conscious choice to no longer feel victimized but rather, embrace how empowered you are to make a change in your life in this moment. When you understand yourself as a Spiritual being moving through life, there is much more meaning to the details of life.

Full Moon in Virgo Ceremony
In meditation or a quiet place, allow yourself to relax and tune into how each human being, animal, planet, Earth, Stars, Nature etc. – is a puzzle piece and all working together to make a whole Cosmic picture. We are all equal, and we are all are interconnected. Breathe into this recognition and truth through the heart than just the mind or it being a good idea. Select 1 place where you will no longer be super critical or perfection oriented within yourself. Let this heal, support and encourage yourself differently. Move beyond the old programming of negative criticism. Work with this for one month every day.
