Sacred Devotion and the Virgo Full Moon
Tuesday, March 7
4:40 a.m. pacific time
Just like a sunbeam can’t separate itself from the sun, and a wave can’t
separate itself from the ocean, we can’t separate ourselves from one
another. We are all part of a vast sea of love, one indivisible divine mind.
― Marianne Williamson
This month’s Full Moon occurs just 55 minutes before Saturn changes signs. This is important because Saturn only changes signs approximately every 2-1/2 to 3 years and the last time he was in Pisces was during the early nineties. Currently, there are three other planets swimming through this vast water sign: Mercury, the Sun, and Neptune. It’s almost as if the threesome is gently beckoning Saturn to join them in the Piscean ocean. You can learn more about Saturn’s important transit through Pisces and how to navigate this three-year period here.
With each Full Moon we receive new opportunities for manifestation, reflection, and realization. Every Full Moon brings a special gift of energetic wisdom based on the zodiac sign that it occurs. Alignment with one’s body, mind, and spirit is Virgo’s most important purpose.
We each have Virgo somewhere in our horoscopes. Therefore, when a lunation occurs in the sign of Virgo (2x annually: New & Full Moon), that area of our life becomes highlighted and it’s easier to integrate these energies into our lives.
Additional Virgoan significations (see below key words for more) include purity and sacred devotion — often depicted as the seeker striving for perfection. Additionally, Virgo is ruled by Mercury (the mind) and is — in Virgo’s case — related to analytical critical thinking (to get to the pure essence of the issue).
Neglecting the purification and healing of the Virgoan elements of body, mind, spirit can sometimes precipitate an inner and/or external crises. If a crisis is interpreted as something happening to us, it can lead to confusion and feelings of victimization — another key Virgo theme. However, once we integrate our spiritual essence with our body–mind we realize our wholeness as powerful divine beings.
This Full Moon makes a benefic aspect to the planet Uranus. As you may recall, Uranus is associated with liberation and unprecedented and often unexpected change. Do you need to liberate yourself by making an internal and/or external change in your life? Are you in need of transforming and deepening your devotional practice? Is there a healing opportunity that has recently come to your attention?
Take time during this Full Moon (March 6–8) to feel into where you would like to regenerate your life. Reevaluate the areas needing your attention. Pay special attention to your nutritional requirements, thought processes, and spiritual needs. Try not to belabor details, overanalyze, or become too critical — be gentle, kind, and loving to yourself and others.
