Full Moon in Virgo 2013

Full Moon is a time when the Sun is in opposition to the Moon, thereby fully illuminating the lunar terrain with solar energy.  Previously hidden information is likely to be exposed at this culmination point in the lunar cycle.  Any wishes made or projects began at the time of the New Moon has reached the stage where evaluation is called for before continuing on with the next step of the plan.

On Monday 25th February 2013 at 20:26 GMT, we have a Full Moon in Virgo at 7 degrees 23 minutes.  

There is a Pisces stellium - Neptune, Sun, Chiron, Mars and Mercury, with Venus joining the party six hours after the Full Moon.  The natural ruler of this stellium is also within the cluster (Neptune), giving us a strong message of focusing on the more spiritual side of life and to have trust in the Universe.

The solar rays shine on the Virgo moon, bringing its shadow qualities to the fore, e.g. being a stickler, a perfectionist, a critic.  As an earth sign ruling the 6th house of routines, Virgoans prefer to stick with what they are familiar with, though they can be flexible if necessary (it is a mutable sign afterall).   The dispositor of the moon, Mercury, is retrograding in Pisces, therefore, both dispositors of the Sun and Moon are in Pisces, giving us an added emphasis in utilising the Piscean energy at this time, even if it may seem uncomfortable to the more practically-minded individuals.  

This Full Moon is in a mutable T-Square with Jupiter in Gemini (besides being a traditional ruler of Pisces, it is also disposited by Mercury in Pisces - further reinforcing the Piscean message).  Jupiter is a happy-go-lucky planet, but in a T-square, we tend to get overly-optimistic, overly-arrogant and basically over-doing things.  This is a learning opportunity for us to be spiritual (Pisces) in a practical (Virgo) world.  Moreover, it is a time to see with eyes of compassion and faith (Pisces) rather than through critical eyes and harsh judgments (Virgo).  There are facets of life which simply cannot be explained logically.

Where the Virgo Moon falls in your chart is the area of life where you may need to be less critical, less of a perfectionist - let go and relax!  Where the Pisces Sun /cluster falls is the area of life where you may need to get a grip on yourself and not give in to procrastination and pessimism.

With such a strong Pisces message, perhaps we could think about other people by focusing on service, e.g ask the Universe how you can serve on this mortal realm.  This is a time to learn about living a spiritual life in a practical way.  As Teilhard de Chardin once quoted, 'We are not human beings having a spiritual experience.  We are spiritual beings having a human experience.'
