Full Moon in Virgo March 9, 2020 at 1:48 pm ET.
When we have a Full Moon in Virgo, it is always when the Sun is in Pisces. We are moving from the New Moon in Pisces and entering into the Full Moon of Virgo. Astrology reminds us of oppositions and duality, and how life operates on a spectrum.
Virgo is very analytical and practical, whereas Pisces is very spiritual, philosophical and dreamy. We could think of it in terms of using music as an example. Virgo would be about learning how to read musical notes and analyzing the structure of a song, whereas Pisces would be about feeling the music and going with the flow of how the vibrations affect your mood. Virgo would be about learning the methodical steps of a dance routine to get it perfectly timed to the beat, whereas Pisces would be just moving to the rhythm and flow of the melody and vibrations in any way that feels right in the moment.
I love Virgo energy because it is all about productivity and getting things in order in your life. Scheduling and using your time intelligently is best now. It’s a good idea to work towards something in a practical, methodical way as we head towards this Full Moon so you have something completed by the time it arrives. This is the time to make something grow, put in the effort and make it happen.
Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, and Mercury is now Retrograde in Pisces with the Sun. Use your ability to visualize and dream up awesome ideas that can head you in the right direction toward producing something meaningful for the Full Moon.
Virgo is like the number crunching accountant, and likes to be responsible, measured and accountable for how life is working out.
This is a great time to do self assessment of your accomplishments and to look at your goals. Have you been doing the necessary work to accomplish the results you want? With Mercury Retrograde now, it’s a good time to ask yourself if there are there any goals you may want to rethink and reconsider.
This is a great time to assess your daily habits. Perhaps some of the things you do regularly, or every day, are taking up more of your time than you’d really like them to. Maybe you want to create a shift to your routines so you can manifest a different lifestyle. This is an excellent time for procrastinators to get real and admit where time has been wasted and recognize what is holding you back from making practical gains toward your goals.
A Full Moon in Virgo is the opportune time make real, practical efforts toward manifesting something tangible in reality. This is the time to change up your routine and let go of some of the things you have been doing for a while so you can make room for different opportunities.
Virgo is very health oriented, emphasizes the importance of self care and more of us could be hypersensitive to our health concerns now. Virgo is geared toward being very precise about health matters, including nutrition facts and counting calories. Virgo reminds us that You Are What You Eat. Virgo likes cleanliness and because Virgo is strongly geared toward precision and accountability, can actually have anxiety or be obsessive compulsive to the point of being a germaphobe. Virgos are very sensitive to hygiene practices and are more likely to carry around hand sanitizer than other signs.
Because we are in flu season, and we are now contending with the potential spread of coronavirus (I wrote an article on that about boosting your immune system here), it is wise to learn how to take practical steps to be more preventative and prepared.
Also in terms of habits, this is the time to consider your unconscious habits. Especially considering cold and flu season, how often do you touch surfaces and then touch your face? What surfaces are you touching with your hands, and then touching other surfaces which may transfer germs. It is interesting to see how health authorities advise people to be conscious of their habits, while they themselves exhibit those same habits, putting into consideration just how unconscious our habits really can be. It is also interesting that hands and mouths are in focus considering Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, and Mercury rules the hands and communication devices – which of course includes our mouths.
Whereas Pisces would be more about holistic health on a more spiritual energetic level, like Reiki and energy work, hypnosis, Virgo is more practical such as the a nurse that focuses on the step by step procedures that are organized and timed according to scientifically proven objectives.
Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, and Mercury is Retrograde in Pisces leading up to this Full Moon in Virgo. Mercury is also going to slip back into Aquarius a few days before this Full Moon arrives. This indicates that we really don’t have all the information, we don’t really know all the details and there is a lot of mixed information, even potentially skewed information about what this Coronavirus is all about. With a Full Moon in Virgo, it is best to err on the side of caution and to be preventative and smart about how you are approaching health concerns by taking precautions in advance. It also indicates the importance of being conscious of how your habits influence your future.
We also need to take into consideration that this Full Moon is also opposite Neptune in Pisces with the Sun, which further adds to the potential of wishy washy information that doesn’t make logical sense, and numbers that may not add up at this time. As I mentioned in the Mercury Retrograde in Pisces Horoscope, as Judge Judy says, “If it doesn’t make sense, it’s usually not true.”
Remember Virgo is the virgin, which represents being cautious and intentionally holding yourself back from exposing yourself to potential situations you may not want and using your logical mind to make decisions for yourself instead of just letting things happen. Whereas Pisces, would be getting drunk where you are not thinking so much about about the potential consequences or just flat out ignoring them, because you are just going with the flow of your feelings in the moment. Virgo is about being prepared in advance and doing your best to stop things from getting out of hand by creating decisive order to your life.
Yes, Virgo does tend to worry a bit too much sometimes, however, that can be beneficial by getting things in order for your best chances of acquiring the outcome you desire.
A Full Moon in Virgo reminds us to take care of the details, to take care of our bodies and health so we are prepared to minimize risks and optimize best practical results.
Mercury will station direct in Aquarius about 9 hours after this Full Moon arrives on March 9, 2020 at 10:49 pm ET.
