Full Moon in Virgo ~ March 19, 2011

On the last day the Sun transits Pisces, the Moon waxes and becomes full in Virgo. Full moons signify the completion, culmination of what may have been initiated during the previous new moon in Pisces which encouraged us to get in touch with our 'higher self', show compassion, and seek the truth that lies deep within our heart and soul. During the Pisces-New Moon, the North Node (life path) aligned with Neptune (enlightenment) and Uranus (awakening). Their alignment remains strong and is joined by this Full Moon in Virgo who squares the North Node, opposes Uranus and is quincunx Neptune.

The Virgo-Full Moon picks up where the Pisces-New Moon phase leaves off. The heart (Moon) may still be meticulously processing (Virgo) what might have transpired over the past two weeks, but the soul (Sun) seems to 'understand' the 'truth' without the need for words or logic (Pisces). Harmony and balance between intellect/intuition and being practical/having faith will be necessary to make the most of this full moon phase. Those who feel like they're at a crossroads in their life might experience the impact of this Full Moon in Virgo stronger than most.

This Full Moon occurs at 29 degrees of Virgo on March 19 at 11:10 a.m. PDT / 2:10 p.m. EDT. Those born within 3 days of March 19 or September 22 or or with natal planets and/or house angles around the late degrees of mutable signs or early degrees of cardinal signs may feel the effects of this full moon phase more pronounced than others.

For me as a Virgo-rising, this Full Moon falls right in my natal 1st house (the ego, the self, my potential); as a Cancer-Sun, in my 3rd house of (thought, communication); and happily aligns with my Neptune. This all happens in the backdrop of transiting Neptune continuing to square my natal Neptune. *pbbbbt* Well, I might as well pull out my crystal ball and get some direction that way! I don't really have a crystal ball but would be cool if I did :) I am a Cancer-Sun and do listen/actively use my intuition. Although, my Virgo-ascendant plus Gemini-Mercury aren't always too comfortable with too much 'woo woo' in conducting my own personal life. It seems that this full moon focuses on that part of my chart/makeup in another attempt (for I'm sure there have been other times) to help me reconcile both those parts of me. oh, joy :p
