Both Virgo and Pisces are in play, as opposite and complimentary forces. Earth and water (Pisces) are both receptive and fluid. Virgo craves order and the satisfaction of feeling whole and productive. Pisces is the instinct to surrender, and give over to the forces of higher healing.
This Full Moon then is a balancing of daily stability through routine, with the need for unscheduled time. And it’s the balancing of the impulse of self-improvement, with the healing that comes naturally from self-acceptance.
Virgo is a sign of presence, and one that observes the smallest details. A great expansion happens now from being here now — in your body, where you are. A great renewal comes from letting go of what keeps you from settling in, and knowing the power of presence.
At the Virgo Full Moon, there’s a high beam on the mind-body connection — how are thoughts, and what you digest affecting your body? The Sun is engaged, in Pisces, for spiritual vitality — heeding the messages of the soul (in dreams, knowing).
It’s a Good Time to:
- Map out the steps toward a goal, with daily routine in mind.
- Spend time alone, like taking a walk or reading.
- Resolve to be a born again virgin, and make sex sacred again.
- Take steps to improve your diet, cutting out toxins.
- Spend time caring for a child, the elderly or an animal in need.
- Set aside time each day to practice toward a goal.
- Organize your desk, garage, closet, bookshelf.
- Write letters or postcards.
- Take care of business that involves fine print.
- Research or edit
- Attend a literary event.
SATURN IN SCORPIO brings serious emotional fortitude to the business of purifying and purging. This is an excellent time TO CLEAN HOUSE, both your real space, and your body and soul.
PLUTO-RULED SCORPIO is the excavator, and this is a time to dig into the fertile, yet dark potential that lies dormant within. Very often, I find that when you let more of yourself live, there are big adjustments to be made — in the daily routine, in the need for solitude. As you retrieve parts of the soul, there’s a different standard for the day with a new sensitivity.
It’s a re-sensitization that then demands a new rhythm for life and work.
Now is a great time to experiment with practices and activities that allow your wholeness to take root.
In a time like ours, what practices are effective, in this process of accelerated change? It’s not about being perfect, with perfectionism being a Virgo peccadillo.
Full Moons bring rising inner tides — the material of the psyche is surfacing. This Full Moon brings home the reality that it’s useful (and a lifesaver) to have a basket of strategies that work in different situations.
This is a time to experiment, listening to the soul’s promptings, on what will aid in the integration process. What gives you confidence, to ride the waves, and even if you’re knocked down, find your center again? Sometimes what’s needed is to Do Nothing — to simply let the waters wash over and trust the process.
The Full Moon is in Virgo, who is often depicted as an EARTH GODDESS, and maiden of the harvest. The Sun is in Virgo in September, and that’s when we glean what’s been sown in the Spring and Summer.
At the Full Moon, we’re invited to manifest with sure-footedness, from a real grounded awareness. Virgo is a sign of presence, and one that observes the smallest details. A great expansion happens now from being here now — in your body, where you are. A great renewal comes from letting go of what keeps you from settling in, and knowing the power of presence.
What strikes to the nervous system cause you to escape from being present? This can be a time of clearing, simplifying and purifying. You become the Virgin, whole-unto-herself (or himself), able to take in new experiences, and be changed by them.
