There is a softness, a sweet space opening in the hearts of humanity. Can you feel it? A space where we are moving out of control dramas, of planning every moment of our lives to a ‘T’. We are engaging with uncertainty like never before and inviting into our lives the ‘magick’ that unfolds when we become comfortable with not knowing the future. We are a discovering a tender & warm space in the present moment, the here and now.
This is what our Virgo Full Moon is gifting us this month in the lead up to our Autumn/Spring Equinox.
View ALL Lunar/Astral Transits for 2022
Full Moon in Virgo
With our FULL MOON in the Earth Sign of Virgo, reflecting the LIGHT of the Sun in watery Pisces, we have the opportunity to discover where in our lives we are holding on, controlling, trying to put situations into 100% perfect order, or holding ourselves to standards that no human could ever live up to?
Adding to the alchemical mix of our March Full Moon is Neptune conjunct our Sun, plus our Moon is trine Pluto. This menagerie will be felt for many months to come, most likely up to our Summer/Winter Solstice mid-year.
Moon in Virgo, Sun in Pisces
Virgo symbolises the Virginal Maiden – representing purity, the natural world in splendid perfection, the healing powers of the natural realm. She represents self-transformation, how we nourish our body, minds & Souls. Ruled by Mercury (communication), she represents the feminine archetype of Mercury the messenger planet – feeling, intuitive expression. During this Moon, we have the opportunity to become conscious of where we are holding on, controlling or becoming fixated on our plans, instead of trusted our gut-feelings and flowing with our natural intuitive natures.
Plans are great. Preparing a structure for your life can be helpful. As the saying goes ‘fail to prepare, prepare to fail’. However, plans must also be flexible, consciously adjusted & tweaked.. or even at times plans call for being dumped completely as you let yourself receive the wisdoms gained from your endeavors.
The thing is – letting go is REALLY hard to do at times. We sometimes become fixated on HOW a PLAN must flow. The EXACT steps a plan MUST take to create a goal. We control ALL the VARIABLES of the plan in order to feel a sense of comfort – maybe from a fear of failure or to ensure a desire outcome is reached within YOUR timeframe.
This Full Moon is about letting go of every precise (and often exhausting) minute detail and falling into the warm & oozy feeling of your intuition, particularly as you are being warmed by the Sun in Pisces. Pisces is a creative dreamer, so spend some time reflecting on how you can drink in more of this delicious essence in your life. Plans aren’t necessarily linear… and in fact, often those curve balls in your plans is where the real magick is found. And what better time to let go of your ‘head plans’ and move into the feelings of your Heart, than a time when the whole world is turning upside down with change!
You may find you will be faced with choices of letting go of something that you know in your heart is not for you, even though your mind/ego is grappling with cutting something loose as you may have invested time, money, energy, love into it. Just let it go. What is this Full Moon whispering to you. You know you know the answer, it is just your ego that you are grappling with that is keeping you stuck! Let the reflections of intuitive Pisces help you tap into that inner-knowing.
Pluto Trine our Moon
Pluto the planet of transformation & empowerment is trine (90 degree angle) to our Full Moon. Heralding transformation, Pluto in Capricorn is about death and rebirth or endings and beginnings. It is a time of breaking down all old outdated structures… structures that embody power & control such as governments, corporations & religion. This dismantling then creates opportunities to rebuild solid foundations from the ground up and inside-out… structures that support communities, humanity and the sustainable life of this planet.
With Pluto trine our Full Moon, we are being guided to take a deep-dive into the dark emotional recesses of our shadow, and let go of control issues that come from a much deeper place of self-worth. Change is one of THE HARDEST things in life, yet that is Pluto’s gift – through change we grow, evolve, and thrive through the best versions of ourselves. Trust yourself, your intuition, your inherent soulful guidance… you got this!
Neptune Conjunct our Sun
Neptune (Illusion, deception, creativity) is conjunct our Sun this Full Moon. Neptune in Pisces thrives in this placement, helping us awaken to the DIVINE from within. It fosters a movement beyond materialism / consumerism and the foundations of religious dogma. Neptune in Pisces fosters spiritual transformation. This energy provides a potential for humanity to expand beyond perceived limitations through dedicated spiritual practice and to find AUTHENTIC TRUTH. Allow your IMAGINATION to SEE beyond the illusion and awaken to living with Spirit through heart-n-soul.
Neptune/Sun conjunction this Full Moon is a delightful energy helping to deepen our spiritual connection to self within the miraculous unfoldment of life. Neptune helps us to creatively look at any problems/concerns we are having from a different angle, from a grander vantage point of consciousness. If you have been experiencing a situation or problem in your life that appeared ‘too hard’, ‘futile’, or a ‘bridge too difficult to cross’, through the influence of Neptune this Full Moon you may suddenly ‘see’ a way to leap to the other side of your challenge. Solutions through Neptune are often ‘out of the box’ type discoveries, and usually they involve getting our of our own way or limited ways of thinking in order to change to come to pass with Grace.
Just a few days after our Full Moon, we flow into our Autumn/Spring Equinox on March 21, 2021 – 1:33am AEST
Each year as the Sun enters Aries toward the end of March we have the AUTUMN (Fall) Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere and SPRING (Vernal) Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere.
The Equinox is a powerful portal gateway of ascension into higher levels of consciousness. At this time of unity, the feminine & masculine merge as one, opening opportunities to unify duality within our selves, and expand our awareness to greater dimensional/light octave levels.
As day & night are close to equal length on the Equinox, the Equinox represents our place of transition, that ‘moment’ between the in & out breath, the space between our thoughts/words, the eternal stillness that is present in the simplicity of the present moment. The Equinox helps us find that stillness, that place of unity, that eternal space that exists within us. It helps us to find, embrace and become that balance in our lives – balance of the Masculine/Feminine, balance of the Soul/Ego, balance of the Being/Doing, balance of Heaven/Earth and the balance of Spirit/Matter.
Here are some suggestions to help you connect with the energy and celebrate the sacred potential of our March Equinox:
- Cleaning – This week clean your house, your office, your meditation space, your closet… make space for a fusion of order & balance. Clutter, unnecessary ‘stuff’ clogs up your life physically/energetically. Space is need for a rhythm of balance & harmony for flow with Grace & Ease in your life. Maybe time to get some inspo from Marie Kondo!
- Detox – At the change of Seasons (ie Equinox) I enjoy starting a detox. It is my way of preparing my body for a shift in gears, a letting go of the last season, and my way of welcoming in the new. You could do a juice fast for a day, a week… or maybe just eat a little LIGHTer on the Equinox as your way of gifting more LIGHT into your life as you kick off a new cycle of Spring or Autumn.
- Journal / Vision Board – In addition to my detox, I also enjoy spending a little time on the Equinox writing & drawing in my journal… and on occasion I may also include some photos of things that I LOVE. This process helps me to feel into the freshness of the new Season, what do I wish to invite into my life (as well as what do i wish to let go of)… that will ultimately bring more balance, harmony, joy & vitality over coming months.
- Rhythm & Harmony – Find space this weekend and with wonderment & curiosity connect with the balance & harmony of rhythm in your life. You could meditate on your breath – focussing on the in & out breath…. and the expansive ONENESS of the space between the breath. Walk in nature and feel the rhythms of the natural world – how the songs of the birds, the wind in the leaves & ripples of sunlight on the leaves all harmonically create a symphony of life around you. Sit by the ocean and tune into the rhythms of the waves – particularly the space between the wave coming in and the flow of the wave going out. Or even wake up early to watch the Sunsrise and later in the day watch the Sunset and feel the expansive ONENESS of the cycles of life both around and through you.
