Happy March everyone! We certainly start this month of strong with a full moon in Virgo! Because it is a new month AND a full moon I felt another energy update was in order. Let's take a look at what is in store, what to be aware of, and how to move through the shifts that may occur around this full moon!
Full Moon In Virgo is asking us to be Practical
Virgo is the sign of practicality, so it is natural that during this full moon you are looking at things that seem realistic and planning ahead for your future not in huge, but small more specific ways. This is a very analytical sign and always looking for the new while assessing the old. Take a look at what has worked for you in the past and use your own personal knowledge to begin taking steps to move forward.
You may find yourself getting caught up in the idea of perfection as this full moon's energy comes about. Remember that even if things are not perfect today, or in this moment, it does not mean they never will be. Everything is a process, and some things take time to grow and take shape before we truly start to see results. Do not let yourself get caught up in the idea of perfection!
The energy of this full moon is also probably guiding you to what you need to look at, there may be cracks in your foundation that need to be filled in before you can start building more of the empire that is your future life. Full moons ARE about releasing so you may find that certain things come up that you do not need anymore, let these go and fill their space with something more conducive to the life you want to live. A very IMPORTANT question to ask yourself right now is: "What do I want?" or "Who do I want to be?".
Emotions May run high... Don't Panic!
As with any full moon, we are likely going to be a little emotional. We know the moon effects the tides of the ocean, and being 70+% water we are obviously going to have a tendency to have the tears flow and the fears come out. If you or anyone you know is going through an emotional roller coaster, seek comfort and the best place to do it is yourself. Do not beat yourself up over feeling bad, over having a bad moment, or having a lapse in judgement. Believe me the things that surface during this moon may bring about emotions, but they are bringing about the things we need to fact the most.
What are you not Willing to Digest?
Virgo rules the Digestive system, so during this full moon you may find yourself being faced with the things you have had a hard time processing or keeping down. And sometimes these things may come up in an emotional outrage, they may hit you like a freight train, or they may slowly creep up on you but if there is something you have had a hard time getting through it is likely that it has or will come up within the next few days.
So what do you do if and when it does?
Look at what comes up, look at the beliefs you have formed around it. Odds are you have a belief about this event, idea, relationship, etc, that is making it so you can't "digest" whatever it is you are moving through. So while this full moon may bring it about in interesting and potentially emotional ways, honor the fact it is coming to surface so you can dive into it and move through it once and for all.
It's all about healing
The sign of Virgo is also the healer, so this moon's energy is giving us an opportunity for healing as well. This can mean physical healing; you may be guided to take up new eating habits, exercising, or visiting a doctor or specialist to make sure all is in order. But this can also be emotional and relationship healing as well. This is a very powerful moon with a lot of potential stirring around it, be sure to embrace the healing energy it has and try to connect with it as you see fit. You may even find yourself conversing with the moon and asking it for guidance- no, it's not weird to do that.
The Son of Swords' Guidance for the full moon
I asked for tarot insight in moving in to this full moon's energy and the son of swords (pictured above) came leaping out of the deck!
The insight and guidance I gather from this is:
You are the key to all you need to know, all you wish to conquer, and all you wish to manifest in your reality. Right now take time to observe, look at what is happening around you before you dive in to taking action, this is where being practical totally comes in to play. The son of swords is practical and extremely direct when he goes after what he wants. He makes sure to look at all aspects before taking a step- try doing this around this full moon. And remember, he is a SON, not a father, there is still a naive energy about him, he is still learning and still figuring things out. Knowing that not having all the answers and not having to be perfect in all aspects of life is okay and in fact should be embraced at this time.
The Son of swords may be holding a sword, indicating the action he needs to take, but is real power is in his wings, indicating the path he is forging for himself. You are on a journey right now, action is important but it is also important to take a look at where you are going and why you are headed that way. Remember the only thing you need to change course is the decision to do so, no body else controls those wings of yours!
Guys, this is going to be an epic full moon with so much to learn and heal and even manifest for ourselves. Be gentle with yourself and others, and do not be afraid to ask for help when it is needed!
Have a lovely full moon, and happy March!
Love and Light,
