On February 27th, the moon will express itself fully in the sign of Virgo. Virgo is considered to be a self-oriented sign that understands that in order to live a full complete life it is necessary to create well thought out and implemented systems. Full moon energy is related to oppositions where the Sun and the Moon stand across from each other. Thus, at this time, the Sun will be in the sign of Pisces. This is important to understand as Virgo is a sign that involves the integration of Self while Pisces is focused on the release of Self in order to blend with Oneness. With this full moon in Virgo, we all have the opportunity to learn how to create systems that will help us live more productive, integrated lives on a daily basis while also considering how we can pull from the realm of spirit in order to make our practical everyday lives more fulfilling.
The Full Moon in Virgo Experience
The Moon is a very special planetary body as it reflects what we need in order to feel safe. When the moon moves into the sign of Virgo, feeling safe is related to creating clarity and order especially in the realm of the mind and the emotions. Virgo is an earth sign so there is always a need to feel grounded. Thus, Virgo will seek to organize anything that is disorganized or chaotic. This can also produce the effects of being critical with oneself and with others in an attempt to right wrongs or make the imperfect perfect. Virgo does not like the unexpected because it doesn’t know how to process it in its developed, organized system. Clarity and order are important for gaining valuable insights and living a life that is productive in a meaningful, humble manner.
Grounding in this Experience
This full moon in Virgo will teach many of us the importance of living an organized, grounded life. Many of us are walking around in chaos. This chaos is felt throughout various parts of our lives from finances to our love lives. Virgo teaches us the importance of discernment and being critical in order to remove that which is no longer relevant or efficient in the daily living process. While the opposite sign of Pisces will seek to transcend that which is difficult through spiritual practices, creative endeavors, and/or substances, Virgo charges us to sink into groundedness in order to eliminate the impurities that make the daily living process difficult.
Something as simple as creating a schedule, cleaning up our living space, and adopting healthier eating habits are ways in which we can integrate Virgo full moon energy. With Virgo, the process is important and the solutions are in the details that so many of us choose to avoid. At this full moon in Virgo, we all are encouraged to look at our daily process to see how we can improve our overall lives by becoming more organized and efficient. While Virgo may be considered critical, it is this ability to thoroughly analyze what is within the immediate environment and eliminate that which is not useful that produces a living experience that is efficient and orderly.
Belonging to Yourself
One of the key elements of Virgo energy is the idea that we belong to ourselves first and foremost. Represented by the virgin in the zodiac, a virgin is someone that is whole and complete unto itself. The Virgin is not seeking a partner as the next sign Libra does in order to feel complete. The Virgin is pure and full in the sense that it has not received any input from the outside in order to be itself.
At this full moon, many of us may be thinking about what makes us feel impure. Virgo is a sign that thoroughly considers how to remove impurities in order to be its best self. It is one of the reasons why Virgo is associated with natural health and cleansing, especially of the digestive tract. It is through a thorough cleaning process of the mind, body, and spirit that one is able to create the “perfect” station that will allow one to live in unison with itself and the immediate environment. Thus, when there are chaos and disorder within the self, we can expect to have chaos and disorder in our environments. This full moon in Virgo encourages us to consider how the disruptions in our lives are directly related to the disruptions within ourselves and our environments. Ultimately, in order to achieve the order and that will allow us to live fulfilling lives it is important to consider what is causing disturbances to our personal systems.
Integrating the Virgo Experience
With the full moon in Virgo, there is a culmination that offers us the opportunity to wrap up those things that are not creating the efficiency in our lives that we desire. Look around you, and consider how you can implement more efficient systems that will enable you to live in the fullness of yourself. Virgo is the humble servant that understands that in order to help others we must first be able to help ourselves. Purification starts with the self, it can only extend beyond the self when we have made the space to create a life that is efficient and connects and grounds us into our daily lived experience.
