We are having a Full Moon in Virgo on March 12th, however, for those in the Western part of the world it will appear the fullest on the night of March 11th. Full Moons are the peak of the Moon cycle when both the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs, with this case being Virgo and Pisces.
The opposition between the two signs can bring up situations in which we need to learn to work with both sides of the polarity, and in many situations it can be in a challenging or emotionally charged way. In this case, however, the South Node is in Pisces (where we also had the last solar eclipse) and the North Node is in Virgo, which started in November 2015 and will finish in May.
The month of Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20) is generally one of the more magical periods of the year, and a good time to explore and participate in anything that involves spirituality, creativity, and healing. However, because the South Node is in Pisces, and we had the recent eclipse there, we are also being called to release any negative qualities of Pisces we may have. This energy is still playing out over the coming months. (You can read more about it here.)
During this Full Moon, we are being reminded of the evolutionary push we need to make towards the Virgo energies that we are lacking, which the Universe is calling on us to embrace. Virgo is about being grounded, realistic, attentive, organized, clean, pure, and productive. Taking care of our physical bodies and living a functional life is important when we are dealing with the Virgo sector of the zodiac. In situations like this, sometimes challenges come up that push us to be able to adapt to life’s challenges in a better and more efficient way.
Venus started its retrograde just 8 days prior to this Full Moon. This is shaking things up and pushing us to reflect on our relationships, values, money, and how we express and receive love. This may or may not be directly related to this Full Moon for everyone, however, it is still an important part of the backdrop until April/May.
Full Moon Is In A T-Square Involving Chiron, Saturn, and Mercury
The Sun is applying towards a conjunction to Chiron with Mercury close by. Chiron is somewhat of an asteroid associated with our blocks, wounds, traumas, as well as healing. Any situations or challenges that come up during this Full Moon could be associated with the need to heal and/or move beyond what is holding us back. The Sun will be making an exact alignment with Chiron on March 14th.
The Sun, Chiron, and Mercury with the Moon opposing them are all forming a square aspect with Saturn in Sagittarius. We may face obstacles, limitations, or perhaps the need to get real about a certain perspective around something related to the Virgo-Pisces opposition. The Sun will make an exact square to Saturn on March 17th/18th that will bring up some of these things.
Mercury has been in Pisces since February 25th/26th and will be going into Aries a day after this Full Moon on the 13th/14th. This could lead us to be more imaginative and perhaps more psychic, but due to being somewhat mentally absent. Mercury here can make our communication less direct and confusing and easier to overlook details and more challenges with left-brained activities. Once it goes into Aries our minds and communication will be quicker and more direct.
Things To Consider During This Period
What are your limitations, blockages, and wounds showing you about what you need to change? What can you do to be more healthy, efficient, and productive?
Interestingly, daylight savings time starts on the day of the Full Moon in North America. I would imagine that many people will face challenges as a result of not paying attention to it even though it is a Sunday. This is a great example of the Virgo-Pisces polarity at play.
Since Virgo is associated with health and the Full and waning Moon is associated with ‘release’, this can be a good time to do some sort of cleanse/detox up until the next New Moon in two weeks. This is especially so since we will be transitioning from Winter to Spring, which is generally the best time to do a cleanse. This can also be a good time to get an early start on your spring cleaning.
The exact time of the Full Moon will be 2:54pm Universal Time; you can find out what that is in your time zone by clicking here.
