Friday’s Full Moon in Virgo

“Soul is where the fires of our passions burn. It is where our love is most alive. The soul longs for this deeper love, for a connection between the form and formlessness, for the continuum between the earth and the divine.” Benjamin Shield

“You are not the oil, you are not the air – merely the point of combustion, the flash-point where the light is born.” Dag Hammarskjold

This month’s Full Moon is at 27 degrees of Virgo on Friday the 18th in the wee hours at  at 3:18 AM EDT. This Moon is on the Pisces/Virgo axis and being late in degree, it is approaching the  29th degree – also called the anaretic degree in astrology. The meaning of the anaretic  degree is “poised for change” and this Full Moon , occurring in close proximity to the Spring Equinox, may very well have that feel to it. At the time of the Equinox on the 20th,  the Sun moves  from the dreamy , watery sign of the Sea God, Pisces, to the dynamic, fiery, Mars-ruled sign of Aries.

This Full Moon signals a time to get organized in order to clear the path to take action and move forward. The sign of Virgo rules discrimination and organization.  This is a health- oriented sign and its wise under this influence to create balanced routines – work routines , for example that support health and well being. It’s a good time to get rid of clutter and things that are no longer of use.

The Moon’s closest alignment is a harmonious trine with Pluto indicating a time to be in touch with what you feel passionate about and to create a more harmonious, structured environment to bring that to life.

Saturn is conjunct Juno indicating a good time to look seriously at what your commitments are and what you are willing to take responsibility for going forward.

The Moon is also forming an inconjunct aspect to Neptune. Wherever there is an inconjunct in a chart indicates the constant need for adjustment. It is wise – especially with the influence of the Jupiter/ Neptune conjunction which is in effect now, to make an extra effort to stay grounded as there is a significant amount of ethereal energy at this time. The veils are thin between the worlds.

The Jupiter/Neptune conjunction is also spiritual in nature. Compassion, kindness and patience will go a long way in dealing with others or in situations where conflict arises. It is a good time to be bringing more Light into the world.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”Light breaking into many colors as it passes through a prism.”
