The Full Moon takes place at 16° 40′ of the Sign of Virgo. It strongly affects Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius, Taurus, Capricorn, Scorpio, and Cancer Signs, who are born near the middle of the second decan.
It also affects those of you who have personal planets, Ascendant or Midheaven at degrees 13° – 19° of the above signs.
A difficult and separative Full Moon, which is once again crucial for relationships, takes place on March 7 in the sign of Virgo.
Each Full Moon brings to light tensions that have been bottled up and stirs up our emotions. It is a time of culmination of events and situations.
If we look at the Full Moon chart the first thing that strikes us is that the Moon is located alone in the sign of Virgo, lonely and withdrawn, with all the other planets in the opposite hemisphere of the chart. A formation that emphasizes the tension that can arise in the relationships of those directly affected by this Full Moon since it is the emotions and psyche that are the main focus.
The Moon in Virgo causes us to analyze how we feel. Feelings are put through the filter; 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 feelings, but instead in an attempt to figure out how what we are feeling can serve us on a practical level.
Opposite her, in the vastness of Pisces, the Sun and Neptune are conjunct. The ultimate ideal. Dream and creativity, imagination and intoxication, idealization and ego transcendence. Excessive idealism and selflessness.
But at the same time, Neptune in opposition to the Moon creates deceptive emotions. It creates illusions, and tendencies to escape. Excessive sentimentality and needs mixed with guilt.
Moon opposes Mercury and emotions are vague, double, and changing. Our hearts want one thing, and our minds say another, and while the heart yearns for the dream it is stuck in the mundane environment of everyday life…
At the same time, thoughts are confused and full of on-criticism and find it difficult to believe in the Dream.
Instead of judging with clarity the Moon on the contrary becomes more confused and cannot get out of the mental mazes.
This lack of Faith results from the very difficult position Mars has in the chart of this Full Moon.
Out of Bounds, within Gemini, it is square to the Full Moon. Tension, nervousness, selfishness, agitation are prevalent, and caution is needed in what we say and how we say it.
Mars is ruled by Mercury in Pisces, which is ruled by Neptune, a Neptune which is in opposition to the Moon and square to Mars. Chaos and confusion! Sharp harsh words, dilemmas. Illusions and disappointments, and inability to act as nothing seems clear.
Venus is in detriment in Aries having just left a conjunction aspect with Jupiter and Chiron and while in love, she’s also quite feisty. In her quincunx to the Moon, she should be willing to heal wounds, but because she is in detriment and ruled by Mars it is easiest for her to escalate the tension and bring on ruptures.
The romantic (Venus) seems incompatible with the practical issues that arise. Love is hurt by Mars square the Full Moon, and eroticism is castrated by the inability to discern.
Venus’ sextile to Mars is the only positive aspect that can work and reignite the spark, but Mars is out of bounds and with difficult aspects.
And Uranus, in sextile to the Sun and trine to the Moon, while under other conditions could function by bringing renewal of emotion and opportunities for change, under the existing ones, as ruled by Venus in debility, intensifies deliverance through reaction, opposition, rebellion or even final separation, which feels like redemption.
Saturn in the very last minute of the Aquarius Zodiac at 29°59′, at the very last minute of the anaeretic degree, and also in trine and sextile to the Nodes of the Moon, speaks of a definitive closing of cycles which nevertheless aim to move us forward.
This Full Moon in Virgo will be a test for relationships will be DECISIVE and CRITICAL.
Hopefully with Saturn entering Pisces, the maturity will be again found to make your dreams for you and your partner come true.
Yes, this Full Moon in Virgo will shake us up, confuse us, make us feel regret and guilt. It will affect our relationships as any Full Moon does. Foggy, nervous, and difficult.
Under this Moon… try to draw on your reserve of patience, and work with a willingness to work things for the best, for you and your loved ones.
Until the next Moon…
Wishing all health and peace of mind.
