On March 18th, 2022 we have a Full Moon in Virgo. Full Moons happen in the signs that are opposite from the Sun. We are now in the Pisces season, and we have a record number of planets in Pisces: the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune.
What happens when we swim into too much Pisces energy? It’s easy to get lost in Pisces’ fertile field of endless possibilities.
To balance things out, every Pisces season we have a Full Moon in the opposite sign of Virgo.
Virgo is that part of us that is down to earth and remembers to set the alarm at night and makes sure we have enough food in the fridge.
The Full Moon in Virgo will remind us of the practical realities of our everyday life. If we want to achieve those crazy Piscean dreams, we also need Virgo’s practicality and attention to detail.
Ruled by Mercury, Virgo is the voice of reason.
The question Virgo asks is “Does it make sense?”. If it does, good. If it doesn’t, Virgo is the last sign of the zodiac that will try to spare our feelings.
The Full Moon in Virgo will call things for what they are. Even if the message may sound harsh or insensitive, it is well-intentioned. Virgo truly cares – she is the sign of service after all.
Virgo is a symbol for the harvest – all Full Moons in Virgo have a “time to reap what we have sown” energy. When the Moon is Full in Virgo, we are just before the equinox.
The Sun is in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. A full Solar cycle comes to an end.
The Full Moon in Virgo is our yearly opportunity to take an honest look at how far we’ve come, see what has worked and what hasn’t, and to come up with a plan for the new solar cycle.
Full Moon In Virgo – The Aspects
The Full Moon on March 18th, 2022 is at 27° Virgo and is opposite Neptune in Pisces, trine Pluto in Capricorn, and trine North Node in Taurus.
Neptune, Pluto and the North Node are collective energies that are beyond our individual control.
In astrology, the Sun symbolizes the world leaders, whereas the Moon symbolizes the people. The Full Moon in Virgo is about how we, the people, respond to worldwide events. And there’s no better way to respond to the Piscean chaos than with Virgo’s reason and common sense.
Neptune in Pisces asks us to restructure our relationship with the world we live in. We’re all in this together.
Pluto in Capricorn invites us to become our own authority. For this, we have to metaphorically slay the dragon or the umbilical cord that keeps us stuck in a dependency we’ve long outgrown. Corruption needs to be witnessed – in our power-hungry leaders, and also within ourselves.
The North Node in Taurus wants us to become self-reliant. Even if that means we have to reform that Scorpio sector of our life. Scorpio is our shared resources. That’s energy resources (the high price of gas is one of the ‘side effects’ of the South Node in Scorpio transit), material resources, emotional and psychological resources.
If a relationship has become one-sided, or one party takes advantage of the other, it’s time to reclaim our North Node in Taurus autonomy.
We can no longer wait for the ‘other’ to fix our problems. We can no longer stay in a relationship or a contract that has become a burden and doesn’t serve our interests.
Thankfully, these collective energies align harmoniously with the Full Moon. The Full Moon in Virgo can be our much-awaited wake-up call.
The world is going through a lot of turmoil at the moment. The Full Moon in Virgo is an opportunity to draw the line, take an honest look at what’s no longer working and come up with a realistic Virgoan plan on how to fix it.
Once we listen to Virgo’s voice of reason, the upcoming Aries season is our opportunity to start again – stronger, wiser, and more committed than ever.
