Over the last 5 weeks of eclipse season I have received a spike in client calls. The eclipses have the potential to emotionally shake people up with truths being revealed to them. Sometimes it's a personal truth that's bubbled up from the sub-conscious. And sometimes it comes from others. Regardless, when the impact is significant, it throws people off balance as they emotionally and physically process and integrate the new information into their life.
(NB: The severity of the impact is always dependant on which part of a Natal Chart the eclipses landed)
For those of you who are sitting in the wake of uncomfortable challenge or change that has thrown you out of routine, this week's Full Moon in Virgo brings a welcome opportunity to restore balance.
But even if you were not impacted by the Eclipse, this Full Moon will be PERFECT for releasing toxic ways of being and restoring routine and healthy practices into your life. I like to think of it as a massive Productivity Upgrade opportunity - in both our Career and Personal Lives.
On Friday March 2nd at 11.51am (AEDT), the Moon will be Full in the sign of Virgo.
Virgo is a practical earth sign and in fact is the only Zodiacal sign represented by a female! I like to think of her as the earliest incarnation of the pharmaceutical company because her role in ancient society was akin to the medicine woman. Virgo's strength lies in diagnosing, prescribing and restoring order to ill-health. As a result, Virgo attributes include creation of structure, precision, attention to detail, focus on health, perfectionism and being of service to others.
The very practical and organised earthy energy of this Full Moon asks us to identify where we can transform our daily routine, health habits so that we have the energy to be of service to others. Where in our life are we ready to release toxic health and daily habits that that are holding us back from achieving our potential in our Careers and Personal Lives?
It is opposite the Sun in Pisces – the sign of compassion, creativity and dreaming. . It is highly sensitive and thrives on intuition and serving others. But it can struggle to create boundaries.
Together these signs spark the differences within us where on one hand we are ordered, have routine and seek perfection (Virgo) vs feeling things deeply, getting creative and even seeking to transcend realms (Pisces). In short it brings up the ORDER of our daily routine versus the CHAOS of creativity and dreaming. And THIS is vital to be clear on when it comes to our Careers and Businesses.
WHAT IS THE FULL MOON?
The Full Moon is when the moon is completely lit up. This occurs when the Sun and Moon are opposite each other in the sky and earth is situated directly between them.
In Astrology, the Moon represents the responsive, reflective or unconscious levels of our personality such as our emotions and needs. It symbolises our feelings and reactions to things.
The Sun represents our identity and outward expression as well as our ego.
When the Moon is full, it represents the opposing forces of our inner and external life. For example, us as an individual versus in relationship, our home life versus work, our creativity versus community involvement.
With the full Moon lighting up our emotions and intuition, it allows you to tap into and overcome challenges in our life. We’re more easily able to see what’s causing us any disharmony and provides an opportunity to release what’s no longer serving us. For example bad habits, ways of talking to ourself that don’t serve us, relationships that quash our ability to shine in the world or patterns of behaviour that sabotage us reaching our potential.
Each Full Moon brings an opportunity to let go of something different depending on the Zodiac Sign it is located in.
USING THE VIRGO FULL MOON TO CLEAN UP OUR ACT AND GET PRODUCTIVE IN OUR CAREER AND/OR BUSINESS.
This Full Moon highlights what's gone awry in our daily routine and health habits that inform our ability to work.
And this is IMPORTANT. Because exactly how we nurture this aspect of ourselves (or not) has a direct impact on our ability to create flow and opportunity in our careers and businesses.
Getting the right balance between order and chaos is fundamentally what is at play here.
Therefore this full moon brings an opportunity to say goodbye to any unhealthy practices that are holding us back from performing. For some it may be cleaning up the diet, others it may be reigning in partying ways, for others still may be re-installing an exercise regime or instilling better sleeping patterns. By detoxing our body, mind and soul, we make room for a new vibrancy in our life and allow for breakthrough ideas and connections with other to come through.
When the body lacks nutrition, exercise and sufficient sleep and the mind is full of negative thoughts or "busyness" our ability to perform to our potential, connect to our purpose and really shine is limited!
So this is the Moon to use to set up supportive structures and systems in our lives at home and work that allow for an easy flow of productive work. Systems may not be sexy but they allow us to get a lot more achieved with less stress, less time wasting and focussing on what matters most.
Personally, I'm ready for a re-boot in this area.... it's March and it's time to design structure in my work and personal life that will allow me to activate my creativity!!! That's why I've created the Virgo Full Moon Ritual.
