The Virgo Full Moon is exact at 7:54am Pacific time on Sunday, turning our awareness to the ways in which our daily habits and practices engage with our higher creative and spiritual ideals. For an in-depth look at how to work with this energy based on your Sun and/or rising sign, the Moon Guides are live and available for download!
Here are four ways to work with the energy of the Virgo Full Moon.
Balance clarity of purpose with acceptance
Virgo energy is highly analytical — which makes it particularly susceptible to missing the bigger picture of unity and interconnectedness. Pisces energy, on the other hand, is more connected to flow, dissolving the boundaries that divide — though it risks getting swept up, taken advantage of, or otherwise lost in the current. This Full Moon presents us with the challenge of balancing the need to practice forgiveness and acceptance while staying clear about our purpose and values.
Practice mental housekeeping to avoid self-defeating habits
The Full Moon opposite Chiron connects our emotional nature with our sense of being somehow flawed or wounded. Chiron represents a particular form of wound: if we face it, acknowledge it, accept it, and integrate it, we find ourselves with tremendous power to use our experience to share valuable wisdom with those around us. And if we don't? It'll manifest itself again and again through self-defeating habits and behaviors that get in the way of our ambitions. With Mercury in Pisces square Saturn in Sagittarius right around the time of the Full Moon, there's energy available now for the kind of sober thinking and mental discipline we need to begin this healing conversation.
Find stability in your body
With Virgo an earth sign, physical practices are particularly effective now at bringing calm and peace to our mental state at this time. If this Full Moon brings up anxiety for you, a twenty minute walk in the outdoors can bring expanded awareness, leading to intuitive solutions.
Engage in physical acts of service
How successfully have you brought transcendence, an element of higher purpose or meaning, into your daily work? Uniting action on the physical plane (Virgo) with spiritual principle (Pisces) is key to finding harmony and deeper satisfaction with our work now. Work to bring your creative vision into alignment with something higher.
