FULL MOON IN VIRGO – 2 MARCH 2018: Serving the Ideal

Full Moon in Virgo


The Full Moon takes place at 11° 22’ of the Sign of Virgo. It strongly affects Virgo and Pisces Signs and also Gemini and Sagittarius Signs, which are born near the end of the 1st decan or near the start of the 2nd decan, as well as those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the degrees 9°- 13° of the mutable cross.

The full moon at Virgo takes place on the night of March the 1st, with the two Lights in full opposition at 00:51 into March the 2nd.

If we take a glance on the chart of the Full Moon, the first thing that impresses us is that the Moon stands on her own within the Sign of Virgo.

A Virgo Moon is a Moon that makes us want to analyze how we feel. Sentiments pass through the sieve, everything is categorized and scrutinized. Every need is rationalized and analyzed. We do this, not in an attempt to deny and distance ourselves from our emotions, but instead in an attempt to find out, how what is that we feel, can also serve us on a practical level.

This is the modus operandi of the Moon in the Sign of Virgo. She is a woman in the loom that her need for warmth makes her act by weaving meticulously a layer to cover the bare floor.

Opposite the Moon, within the infinite vastness of the Sign of Pisces, Sun and Neptune are in conjunction. The ultimate ideal. The methexis of existence with the Dionysian element. Dream and creativity, imagination and drunkenness, idealization and transcendence of the Ego. Excessive idealism and deceptive feelings or illusions, tendencies to flee reality.

This very contrast between the earthly and the spiritual, between serving the reality and escaping from it, is what this Full Moon brings into the foreground.

A contrast that is even more pronounced with this Full Moon, since, beside the Sun and Neptune in the Sign of Pisces, two more planets, Mercury and Aphrodite and the Centaur Chiron, are there also.

Mercury from Pisces has an important astrological role in this Full Moon since it rules the Moon in Virgo and thus directly affecting our emotional response to the lunar energy.

The planet’s close conjunction aspect with Venus and the wider one with Chiron has as affect the transforming of the analytical and meticulous mental categorization of our emotions into a more abstract process. Sentiments reach for the romantic ideal, words are incantations that heal, and we want to express ourselves artistically and creatively.

Jupiter from Scorpio is making a trine aspect to Mercury, Venus, and Chiron, magnifying the transcendent element of the moment and at the same time giving a moral weight to our thoughts and desires.

So, on the one hand, we have our everyday needs, which we are called upon to find the means to cover, and on the other hand we want the unattainable and the ideal. We may be seeking the ideal love or the ideal job. The realization of our own personal vision. We want to communicate and share affection in a relationship without keeping it only in order to cover us on practical issues.

We like to express what it is we like and not only what it is correct. We need to create while working and not to mechanically reproduce details lost in the triviality of everydayness.

This Full Moon awakens intense feelings in us and makes us nervous because it invite us to find the way to serve the ideal.

The “Ideal” love is a love where we learn to serve.

The “Ideal” work does not exist but nonetheless we can work towards our personal vision without depriving ourselves of the means to make a living.

“Dreamlike” relationships do not exist but every proper relationship must have truth, morality and inspire us both mentally and practically.

 

FULL MOON IN VIRGO POSTSCRIPT

The concerns raised by this Full Moon in Virgo are similar to those of an artist trying to reconcile what he conceives as ideal with the very labour and the detailed work that he has to do to transform this ideal into a practical and tangible work of art.

Andrei Tarkovsky writes:

“…art must carry man’s craving for the ideal, must be an expression of his reaching out towards it; that art must give man hope and faith.”

But every great artist, in order to bring the ideal to the real world, has worked hard, meticulously and analytically, and expressed what he felt in a practical and simple way, weaving feelings in the loom of his art, just as this Full Moon in Virgo does.

VIRGO NEW MOON – 20 SEPTEMBER 2017

Virgo New Moon

GET YOUR OWN READING!

The Virgo New Moon takes place at 27°27′ of the sign on September the 20th 2017.

The lunation’s chart has a strong emphasis on the Earth element and vibrates intensely the energy of Virgo, since not only the Lights, but also Mercury, Venus and Mars are gathered within the first half of the maiden zodiac sign. It is now the most appropriate time to deal with any obligations and pending issues that require our attention and have been neglected, but it is also the right time for us to begin making improvements on how we live our everyday life.

Actions relating to our physical condition, our health, working conditions, new jobs and projects that require patience and dedication, seeking for employment , setting things straight and making practical moves are particularly favoured by this New Moon.

Yes all these are boring, especially after the vacation time, but now it is the time to organize and put things in order.

Mercury in the sign of his exaltation will function with detail and with perfectly logic, compensating fully for any tendencies of “flight” that Neptune that is in opposition brings. Mars conjunct Mercury will make us think with precision and will give skill in our actions. Our thoughts will easily discern what is it that needs to be done and more importantly how it will come to be realized.

At the sentimental level, with Venus having just entered Virgo, in the sign of its fall and quincunx with Chiron,  we are still experiencing as “wounds” the revisions and decisions we have made in the past weeks. The New Moon itself is in opposition to Chiron at 26 ° Pisces, reinforcing a pattern of wounding and subsequent healing,  that we have seen many times in the last years that Chiron is in Pisces.

But that is precisely the lesson we are supposed to get.

How it is that we experience our feelings and the way we relate has to be more practical and less of a daydreaming or illusion, so as that our relationships to become more balanced. It is through this process of cleansing that we may find the awaited renewal to our relationships, something that is aided by the trine that Venus makes with Uranus.

This New Moon may be boring, dull and plainly cathartic, not letting us to be carried away and holding us down to earth, but on the other hand its aim is to makes us more effective and to teach us to discern our priorities.

Until the next Full Moon in Aries that will wake us up for good and the next New Moon in Libra…       stay grounded but don’t be boring.

Full Moon in Pisces

FULL MOON IN PISCES – 6 SEPTEMBER 2017

Full Moon Pisces

The Full Moon in Pisces on September the 6th brings mixed emotions.

Every Full Moon in Pisces asks us to assess whether our need for inspiration, dream, and contact with the unconscious are in tune with the practical and earthly issues that we face in our everyday life, but this Full Moon in particular will confuse more our emotional landscape.

The Moon is in Pisces and our feelings are already attired with the romantic idealism and the hypersensitivity of the sign. Neptune in conjunction with the Moon increases our empathy, our desire for the imaginary, makes us abstract and is opposes the Sun in Virgo. This Virgo Sun seeks purity, analysis and practical thinking, and expresses what we want in our everyday life. All of these, with the Sun-Neptune opposition become inconspicuous and flicker like a mirage in a desert of the real.

What is it that we want and what we ask from our relationships and from others? What exactly do we feel? Is this real true or it is just our idea? Are we really disappointed or do we feel uncomfortably frustrated because of our emotional charge? Is our attitude towards others clear or does it misguide?

Such are the questions brought forth by this Full Moon, but unfortunately the answers do not come.

Full Moon Pisces

Venus on the chart of the lunation cannot express love, relate and feel valuable, but on the contrary remains attached to obsessions that causes her quincunx with Pluto, to the illusions that maintains the quincunx with Neptune and engages in sweet introversion quincunx with the Moon.

Rational thoughts and logic could have helped the situation somehow, but Mercury has just stopped on his retrograde course and is ready to direct without yet being able to put thoughts to speech or to untie mingled emotions.

Mercury’s conjunction with Mars, upon the same degree of the eclipse of  the 21st of August, requires from us more caution in not saying anything hurriedly, not getting aggressive or taking a position that is not easily reversible, misunderstood or can hurt, rather than to act bold and straightforwardly.

The scenery will become clearer in the next few days and the trines that Mars and Mercury make with Uranus and the sextiles with Jupiter will be helpful. Tension will find its release, and we will gradually feel free from people or situations that restrict us, either by re-establishing the structure of our relationships or through completely new opportunities and acquaintances.

In everything that we have described above, any resolutions that we have made while Saturn was retrograde, until his direct motion on August the 25th, will now begin to be gradually applied and be of help.

The final exit of Mercury from its shadow, which happens on September the 19th, will also help us be more decisive and clear in what we communicate.

Until then, let us experience the tension of this full moon with patience, knowing that it is part of a creative process which while confusing initially, it will eventually renew us at a practical level and uplift us with inspiration and spiritual strength.

VENUS IN VIRGO SQUARE SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS

VENUS IN VIRGO SQUARE SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS

VENUS SQUARE SATURN

Venus is in Virgo. Practical, demanding, fussy, always changing, wanting so much. Saturn is traveling in Sagittarius, testing the vistas of our faith, but bestowing faith in the end through this process of maturity.

These days are the right time to realize that the hardships and shortcomings that you may have in love exist because you over analyze and over think on how love should be. You demand too much from love and at the same time you project the trivial of everyday upon the very ideal of love.

Perfectionism may be right, but not if it makes it harsh for yourself or the one who’s there by your side. If you are alone, and this other one whom you seek has to be so perfect… then sorry but your quest ends before it even begins.

Think of it.

The perfect is not the ideal. The ideal is whatever makes You perfect!

So while this transit lasts remember not to strip love from its transcendental garments. Be patience and attire love with faith and trust.

Most of all have faith in yourself, whether being alone or hand in hand with someone.


Trust and Love on a prayer for the next five days…

«We’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot for love
We’ll give it a shot» – Bon Jovi

…and have faith from then on!

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS SQUARE JUPITER in VIRGO

Saturn square Jupiter

Saturn square Jupiter is an aspect that tests our faith.

The Whitman brothers in the movie "The Darjeeling Limited" start on a journey to find themselves and seek spiritual guidance. On their quest they travel through Kashmir and pay homage from one temple to the other, religious relic after relic. It is as if a higher power like an invisible hand pushes them towards a higher purpose, but they are too focused in the reality around that they miss any possibility of attaining spirituality.

Ironically, their enlightenment comes in a small village in the middle of nowhere when they share humane, personal, everyday moments with the villagers.

Yes, our faith in something higher, in ourselves, in our dreams, in the future, this period may actually be tested. But we can find faith where it gushes. Not in the high places, but where we serve ethically our purpose, in the humble and daily.

We only need to know that FAITH is within us. It starts from us and leads to us.
