Full Moon at 5 degrees Virgo
5:30am mountain time
meaning the Moon will look crazy full the night of the 23rd
This Full Moon is a SuperMoon so everything is just a bit more than more!
Saturn conjunct the Sun at 5 degrees Pisces
I love a Winter garden – this is the Central City Opera garden – where the plants are snoozing, resting before the big PUSH of Spring. You might very well be in the winter garden of your own life or certain parts of your life are feeling well underground and not quite ready to push through to something new. In preparation for an inevitable Spring push, considering there will be a powerful eclipse that not only covers a large swath of the U.S. and also where that eclipse works in your chart and the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Taurus in April, well, it’s quite a line-up of cosmic events. Which is all to say, if you’re still feeling the need to rest lots, cocoon, and have lots of down time – good job!
You are doing exactly what you need to do – to rest before the Spring springs anew.
The Sun is sandwiched between Mercury at 2 degrees Pisces and Saturn at 9 degrees Pisces. Mercury will entice you into a rich fantasy world and fantabulous visions of unlimited potential. The Pisces Sun is loving that. You NEED to have expanded visions! Then Saturn puts a kaibosh on some of the phantasgamorical dreamtime with some practical wake-up calls.
The Full Moon in Virgo gets in the act with mental chatter like: “Hey! What’s necessary? What’s efficient? and Haven’t you got some organizing to do before you get going on whatever new thing is getting ready to bust open in your life?” Virgo can nag, the Virgo part of you can nag you, but always in service to what works best!
Please remember! Sometimes the BIG PUSH, the birth of something new and extraordinary could be the tiniest shift in your perspective, your awareness of yourself on a deeper level, or maybe you take a few more walks outside. Watch out for judging yourself and criticizing yourself for not doing more – Virgo Moon loves to do that. Taking downtime for yourself is critical these days.
Tending to your self-care with exquisite attention to details will completely satisfy this Full Moon energy. Whatever doesn’t align with your vibration, and you think you may be done with that version of your story, let it go into the vaporous, etheric energies of Pisces. Neptune is also transiting Pisces for the next year so LOTS of support from the non-linear realms to get rid of everything Virgo moon put on the list to have moved out of the house.
It could be as simple as letting thoughts that upset and disturb you to be replaced by thoughts that calm and energize you. You have to feel in to how much you will be able to tolerate from external stimuli right now. Honor that. You are in a deep re-calibration phase right now and most of your energy is needed by you for this deep transformational work we are being called to do. As it turns out, creating a paradigm shift has to begin in your heart and in your mind. The more relaxed you can be, the more time you dedicate to relaxing your nervous system, the more you will enjoy the process of your own growth and be better able to hold the space for the birth of the NEW.
Mars at 8 degrees Aquarius and Venus at 9 degrees Aquarius both square Jupiter at 10 degrees Taurus. The LOVE planets are needing more freedom, seeing freedom and individual expression as critical to heightening sensual experiences.
This Amaryllis, which I have been watching bust into bloom for a couple of weeks now wowed me to the core. I saw us all as midwives to the blossoming of the NEW. How exciting! To be midwives to a higher vibration of consciousness, the vibration of LOVE!
And, as midwives of the new paradigm, I am honoring my teachers today as none of this work could I be doing without their teachings and guidance. Working with John Wing Flower has basically taught me to neutralize triggers that used to keep me trapped in some version of insanity (unbalance) in myself. Now even if I get triggered, which I still do, sometimes, I can return to a neutral, unemotionally charged state very quickly.
I am also honoring, R. Michael Kosacoff, whose memory I honor often but specifically this week as it is the third anniversary of his passing. He taught me invaluable lessons of how to be in the world, how to be in my life to support my own growth.
It’s good to honor your teachers and to realize that no one does healing work solo. Technically you ARE doing the work but you need to have teachers and guides to see you through
