FULL MOON IN VIRGO

“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.”
 Caroline Myss

The Moon is in Leo to begin the week and will be Full upon entering Virgo, Tuesday morning at 10:54am ET.

This is a a very auspicious Full Moon as it will conjunct Fixed Star Regulus at zero degrees of Virgo. This Full Moon illuminates issues around criticism versus self-acceptance and perhaps where in our lives we need to heal, feel whole finding a more holistic approach in our overall routine, patterns, physical, mental and spiritual habits.

This Full Moon illuminates, magnify, cleanse, purify our comprehension of what it means to heal; understanding that to be useful, to know our place, and to find purpose, one must first be of service to their body which is the temple and vehicle of the spirit.

Understanding also that to be useful, to know our place, and to find purpose, one must be of service to to this Earth which provides sustenance and gives us food which feeds our body.

Mercury joins Neptune to begin the week and this is the first of 3 conjunction (because of Mercury retrograde). Next ones will be on the 24th of March and the 3rd of April.

Pay attention to clues revealed this week around poison and toxicity. Weather this is something you are ingesting, a guilty pleasure, a mental habit, a place, or a draining person, this aspect combined with the Full Moon could reveal to you some of your posions…..what is poisoning you.

Chiron also just entered Aries to begin the week (at 4:09 ET) after being in Pisces since 2010. This is a major shift as Chiron is associated with pain, healing and where we feel vulnerable and raw.
Some self-undoing habits or patterns might become super obvious to you (if not already), and with Chiron (the great healer and teacher) changing signs, priorities will really start shifting.

Look to where Aries sit in your chart to understand where this will be taking place. Chiron entering the Cardinal sign of Aries will most affect people with important Cardinal planets (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn)

Have a wholesome and healing Full Moon, enjoy the changing tides.

 

The Peak of Sweetness

Just before the first hint of her fall                                  375174_10150393680206962_204208241_n2
A brief moment of glory
Sitting on her golden throne
Her eyes rest on the bounty

There are many secrets hidden in the heart
that only time can expose
The maiden is fair and fertile
for a season only

After the decline of the light
A sacrifice of flesh
What is concealed will be revealed
when pride turns to humility

The ripen fruit must fall
at the peak of sweetness
To process and preserve
the memory of summer’s caress

 

Active surrendering when night takes over

The Sun is in Scorpio and the Moon is in Gemini favouring research and technical knowledge. Gemini is connected to the polarities that comes from navigating opposite truths, seeing that we are both masculine and feminine in essence. Witnessing the dualities of what the mind knows and what the heart desires and the versatility that comes from holding opposites perspectives. Accepting that there are many answers and even more questions.

The revelations of Tuesday’s Full Moon around our bodies and what is required of us to maintain maximum health are slowly sinking in. Diseases and a the need to heal is a big theme at the moment.

The end of October highlights the fight between light and darkness as we prepare to enter the winter season.

The truth is we know that our bodies are not eternal and that we are slowly moving towards a final destination. But we also want to maximize our experience while we are here by making sure our container is functioning to its full capacity. Knowing that we are mortal makes us want to indulge and find pleasure while we also know that bad habits brings sickness. We can feel overwhelmed by the amount of knowledge that still needs to be grasped or anxiety around not knowing.

We might be aware of both our mortality and the desire for continuity that motivates our actions. The need to accept or heal, the need for both light and darkness. Embracing our femininity while honoring our masculine side and surrendering actively to life and her process.

The Sun just crossed from Leo to Virgo and is now conjunct the star Regulus (The heart of the Lion). This interesting part of the zodiac is often associated with The Sphinx. The meeting of the lion with the maiden. In more ancient systems these two are thought to have been one sign.

The Sphinx is a symbol of the co-joined male and female energies and the hermaphrodite stage of consciousness. When the ego power and personal desires meet humility, purity and healing power.

Relinquishing the loud voices of personal ambitions to bow down to the earth, the processes of nature and receive initiation into her secrets.
