The Cosmic Mirror
Every Full Moon mirrors the human condition of contending with opposites. Whenever we feel pulled in two directions, we must evaluate the two ends to find the right path. This is particularly true in the case of intangible Pisces and detail-oriented Virgo, which asks us to keep the boundless mystical realms in mind as we go to work to pay the bills.
An Unsung Hero
The Sun in Pisces reflects the big picture, dreams, and transcendent vision. As the final sign of the astrological “year”, Pisces is concerned with endings, as all things must slide back into the primordial ocean, to remix with the unvaried stream of life. On the other hand, the Virgo Full Moon suggests sharp focus on the specifics, analyzing, and paring down for optimal efficiency. Virgo is an unsung hero in astrology, often gaining a bad rap as being prickly, petty, and critical. However, Virgo rolls up her sleeves like Mother Teresa, offering a helping hand to anyone in need, without hesitation. Where Pisces sacrifices for the sake of the ideal, Virgo busies itself more like a social worker, taking care of the logistics of finding housing or locating ingredients for the communal soup. Moon in Virgo brims with insight and humbly quests for a way to make a meaningful contribution.
The journey of the Moon began on February 11th, when six planets (six!) joined together to bang us over the head and wake us up. Since then, on the journey away from the Sun, the Moon absorbed messages from each of the planets she encountered. These concern our inextricable interconnection to each other and nature, the collective wound requiring healing, and the immediate need for action. The Moon’s contact with the North Node represents the absolute importance of communicating and listening to each other. In this way, the Moon brings the deeper meaning of the times to our attention in her brightest configuration.
