Full Moon in Virgo
February 19, 2019
The Full Moon of February 19, 2019 will be a Super Full Moon due to the close proximity to the Earth. This big, bright, beautiful Moon will come to full light at 0 degrees, 42 minutes of Virgo at 7:53am PST. The Full Moon magnifies our emotions bringing them into sharp focus, and is a time when we can experience a sense of completion, deep insights or realizations. A time when decisions can be made and appropriate actions taken.
Virgo is an earth sign that is practical, analytical and seeks perfection. Virgo looks at what is and what could be and with attention to detail and a well-crafted plan, begins to make improvements. The downside of Virgo’s striving for perfection is that the details overwhelm and it’s a slippery slope to excessive criticism of self, others or any situation, which improves nothing and can be hurtful and damaging to all involved.
There are some added transits to this Moon, the most compelling is Mars in Taurus with Uranus in the last degree of Aries on its heels creating a trine with this Virgo Moon. Mars in Taurus speaks of taking action that stabilizes and Uranus at the critical 29 degrees adds an urgent intensity to this Moon. Sudden development are possible.
Mercury the ruler of Virgo (as well as Gemini) is in the sign of Pisces and sits right next to Neptune in Pisces providing intuition and higher guidance. Mercury and Neptune squares Jupiter in Sagittarius, as well as sextiles Venus and Saturn both in Capricorn. These aspects challenge us to remain optimistic without assumption and to deal with our reality in loving responsibility.
Use awareness and work with this Virgo energy which at heart loves excellence and to be of service through developed meaning gifts. Virgo is a sign truly capable of making things better and if there is a situation or area of life that needs attention, look at it honestly and see what actions or improvements you can make.
As an added note…Uranus is finishing up the last degree in Aries before it finally and fully moves into Taurus on March 6th. This is an energy that can bring sudden events and changes. Pay attention to how you feel, how you’re moving…literally in the world. There will be some of us that will feel more challenged, more fearful, more frustrated than others. It is a time to move with awareness in thought, word and action so that you don’t break that glass, trip up the stairs or say or do something that you may not be able to take back or fix. It’s been 7 years of change and all of us on some level have experienced that. My hope is that this last 7 years has helped us to understand our uniqueness more fully and to claim ourselves authentically, courageously and joyfully.
And if the sky is clear make sure to look outside at this beautiful Full Moon….
