There will be a Full Moon in Virgo March 12, 2017 at 9:54 am EST.

This means that the Pisces Sun energy is opposing its opposite sign, the Virgo Moon.

The sun is the vital energy that keeps us alive and a place where we can create our desires. We are here on earth because of the sun, because the sun generates life. Each month we are asked to embody a new part of the self, as we move through a different sign of the zodiac. This month that sign is Pisces, and we will be in this energy until March 20th , then the sun moves into Aries.

As I said a couple of weeks ago, Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, thus representing the end of the astrological year. The Pisces energy allows us to bring closure and is a culminating energy, so there is an ending of sorts. The Pisces energy also represents the divine laws that are shown to us through our dualistic reality, and is reflected to us through the Full Moon in Virgo. Pisces is often representative of the wounded healer. Put simply, we are shown both sides of the story so that we can make a decision based on all the information shown. This insinuation is that some information was hidden from us in the past cycle.

With the Full Moon in Virgo, our intuition is amped up and we feel everything. Think of the sun as the physical body, and the Moon is the ego or the emotions. The moon reflects the light or energy from the sun. That is why there is always a new and dynamic energy that is being exposed it the Full Moon. We have the ability to tap into and see our whole self in this moon cycle. This energy can be very perplexing as well. Just think about it, we can see everything and we can feel everything. That can drive a person crazy if there is a lot of chaos going on within our life. Sometimes it gets to be too much energy! With the Sun in Pisces and the Moon in Virgo, I feel like the knit picky voice of the ego is picking out every little insecure and imperfect thought that we have. So how to combat this energy! 

By doing something… that’s how! If you just sit there and think about all the crazy going on within you and all around you, you may just go crazy yourself. So, bring in the grounding energy of work and play. Do something physical, bring something into your physical existence!

For us in the Northern Hemisphere we have the Spring Equinox on March 20th, 2017 at 6:29 am EST. In the Southern Hemisphere, they are moving into the Fall Equinox. Either way, this is a pivotal point as the astrological New Year is observed, as is the sun moving into Aries bringing in spring. Something to take note of is this represents the beginning of the beginning, so that means that we are in the energy that is the end of the end. To me, it feels very uncomfortable and itchy, like a wool sweater that I want to get out of.

There are the yearnings for the new energy, but the old energy needs to be reconciled. So, this also means that this is a great time to write. Writing brings you thoughts into physical form. This can help to bring proper closure to the end of the past one year cycle, because we need to acknowledge the lessons that we have learned. It is easy to get caught up into victim mode here, and think of all the injustices that have occurred this past astrological year.

Use this as the jumping off point and ask yourself, what have I learned about me? How has my mind shifted? How has my opinion shifted? Have I been getting caught up in everybody else’s energy, or have I been standing in my own power? How have I been influenced by others? Did it make me feel powerless? How can I better prepare myself to stand in my own power in this new cycle? These are just a few questions; can you think of anymore?

I know that this is a lot of energy to feel and process, that is why we need to be able to burn off a little steam. Go dancing, do yoga, take a brisk walk, clean out that basement, or finish that project. These are great ways to use this energy in a positive and productive way. I find that once I stop thinking about doing something and start just doing something, then I can continue on… It’s that kind of energy right now. So, don’t get stuck just sitting there and festering, get up, get out, and get into action.

We are moving our energy from the darkness of the deepest depths of our subconscious into the light of the energetic and fiery knowing, as the planets move from Pisces into Aries. 

As always, if you are looking to get more insight as to how this energy is affecting you, do not hesitate to email me for a reading.
