I am thinking about the Theme for this Full Moon Virgo Pisces, and find it hard to find one central theme, both of these mutable signs are so easily influenced by anything that goes around (Yes, Virgos are also influenced, just like any other mutable sign), that this full moon will probably center on the usual issues of the Virgo Pisces axis: Order vs. Chaos, Big picture Vs. details, dreams and visions vs. practical how to, healing with faith vs. healing with proven medicine.
This Full moon is just a few days after the Mid Mars Retro Phase, Mars is in Retro in Virgo Since January 24, and will stay in retrograde in Virgo until Apr. 14. On March 3, Mars was in an exact opposition to the Sun, starting a new phase. This Mars in retrograde motion forces all of us to take a look at our daily actions. Mars represents action, Virgo is the energy of detail, of routine, and of doing the right thing for the sake of doing the right thing.
This Full Moon will highlight all those imbalances in our daily routines, do we spend too much time and effort on being healthy, eating right, exercising, and criticizing every bite we take, fighting against diseases real and imagined – and all the while driving ourselves and everyone around us crazy with too much emphasis on every little detail? On the other hand, some of us eat too much, do not exercise at all, and are hoping that their habits will not cost them too much (they usually do). There are very few people in the world right now who are in the middle: yes, they do care about what they eat, but it does not become such a central issue filled with anxieties and criticism, they do take care of their health, and again, give it due proportion.
Traditional astrology does not emphasize the act that the Pisces Virgo axis has such a tendency to lose proportions. Pisces wants the ultimate happiness, the feeling of fully merging with the whole, Virgos wants control. This full moon will highlight this conflict between pure faith and human control.
Next on the list is a small issue of criticism. Its there, always, sometimes we notice it more, most of the time we take it for granted as part of life. In Pieces we imagine the perfect world, in Virgo we take actual steps into materializing that vision, and as we all know, its not easy. The frustrations of the imagined ideal against its actual manifestation cause us all to criticize mostly ourselves but also other people. This horoscope, with Mercury in Aries conjunct Uranus and square Pluto will cause all of us to lose patience, and say thing we might regret later – it’s worthwhile to attempt to think before telling other people what is wrong with them, and If possible, make an effort to see what is good and valuable in them.
Overall, this is not such a dramatic full moon, just more of what we usually deal with, frustrations, criticism, the need to take care of ourselves and others in this world, while all the while aspiring towards some sense of peace and happiness.
The best way to go around this time is to do what you say. If you promise yourself something – do it. If you don’t want to do anything, it’s OK, just don’t make the commitment.
Meditation points for this full moon:
Daily actions and small routines, do those still serve me?
Am I really following my own advice to myself, or am I just criticizing and doing nothing about it?
What do I believe will make me healthy? Do I really do something about it?
Full moon horoscope: Mar 8, 9:39 GMT, 18° of Pisces – Virgo
Full moons are the time for pondering, not for doing. This is the point in the cycle when emotions run high, and feelings on all levels are heightened.
In this full moon, you will get a good chance to see the relationship between preaching for a better world, and the gap between what is being said to what is being done about it.
