full moon / march


Sap Moon 
Sunday, March 12th, Virgo, 7:54 am PST

Energetically, full moons are the most intense periods of the month. Part of this is because the sun and moon are in opposing signs, it can often feel like we are being pulled in two different directions, or swinging from one side of the pendulum to the other. I feel this a lot right now as we enter into the height of our full moon in Virgo with the sun in Pisces. This is a time of really learning to balance action and receptivity, really knowing when to be out in the world and when to be alone or resting, when to be moving and when to be still. 

For the last year or so time has been doing all sorts of nutty things. For one, it is collapsing. This means that we can feel more easily into the future, we are all becoming more psychic and intuitive (these are also strengths of Pisces). On the flip side it allows things from the past to surface and be cleared more easily. And it also is causing time to speed up, so things that it might take us lifetimes to heal previously we can do so so much faster. So, all of this might make you feel like a lot is being thrown your way, or pulled in all different directions, or just plain old confused.

It is important to be taking some solo contemplative walks / hikes or be in meditation this month. Because all of this is happening, and because we have the moon in the active sign of Virgo and the sun in the receptive sign of Pisces, we need to really discern what's going on and what to do about it. Because Pisces just increases our sensitivity and psychic senses the best way to start to understand what is yours and what is someone else's is to spend time in your own energy. Really get to know it. Be in your body (the best way to do this is through movement). Create a container for your energy. Being in your body and being grounded is the only way when you are out in the world and you are struck with or absorbing different energies you will know if it is yours or someone else's. This takes practice. So, start to practice now. The energies of the sun and moon and other planets are supporting this.

This solo time will also give you more space to get clear about what is important, what direction to move in, and connect to the guidance that is available to you. Spending some solo time will help you be more clear about how to move into the world from the truth in your being and what action(s) to take. Venus has also begun her retrograde, so this will help in any exploration of your values and pleasures. Venus reminds us that when we heal the personal we heal the collective.

This Virgo Moon can help you be thorough in your contemplation and listening. It's also a great time to get organized, on a more practical level. There is no coincidence to the term "spring cleaning". Virgo energy is great for sorting through things on a more base and rational level. We are also coming out of the winter months, and with the time change and blossoms blooming it's a good time to do any kind of spring cleaning that you feel called to do. We are also in a natural time of letting go as the moon transitions from full to new, letting go of more and more light in each moment.

Be still. Feel. Listen. Get clear. Make a plan. Take action.
