Full Moon In Virgo – The Perfect Human

On February 19th, 2019 we have a Full Moon at 0° Virgo.

Zero degree of any sign is a very powerful degree, because it symbolizes the starting point of endless possibilities. Anything is possible at zero degrees.

Virgo is translated with “Virgin” and we may be tempted to associate with Virgo virginal attibutes such as unexperienced, pure, or innocent. but if we look at the etymology of the word,  “Virgo” comes from Latin and it means “Self-sufficient” and has pretty much nothing to do with what we associate virginity with now.

Virgo is a symbol for a person who doesn’t need anyone – or anything – to be complete. That’s why Virgo is the sign of perfection. Virgo is the last personal sign (the personal signs are the first 6 signs of the zodiac, from Aries to Virgo). Virgo has mastered the process of individuation. Virgo is the symbol for the “perfect” human being.

It is only in the next sign, in Libra, when we start to open up to others.

The first six signs are for Self-mastery, and no one is better at self-mastery than Virgo. This is the reason why many Virgos or people with strong Virgo energy love self-improvement activities such as fitness, nutrition, health rituals and so on.   

Being of service, being helpful is another Virgo attribute. This is because Virgo understands better than any sign how to help another human improve their condition. Virgos understand how individual systems work – and here we can count human bodies as systems, too. If a Virgo gives you advice or takes care of you, you know you are in good hands.

No matter whether you’re a Virgo or not, no matter whether or not you have Virgo energy in your chart, the Full Moon in Virgo is an invitation to be like a Virgo, or to make use of Virgo’s energy in the area of your life where the Full Moon falls in your chart.

The Full Moon in Virgo is trine Uranus at 29° Aries and is quincunx Chiron at 0° Aries.

Chiron’s work on healing the identity is just beginning (0° Aries). Uranus (the higher manifestation of Chiron) is at 29° Aries, teasing us with the promise of freedom. The type of freedom that comes when we truly understand who we are.

How can we heal our wound of identity (Chiron in Aries) so that we can liberate ourselves (Uranus at 29° Aries)? Through Virgo.

Virgo is the sign that aims to reconcile the matter and the spirit, in the same way, Chiron, the half-man, half-horse Centaurus, aims to reconcile his animal side and his human side. At the time of this lunation, become aware of these two separate parts of yourself. You are you, half-God, half-animal. You are human.
