Happy Virgo Full Moon!
I am feeling hope and optimism return after a very trying winter season. The warmer temperatures, melting snow, and longer days are such a welcome reprieve.
This Virgo full moon is asking us what tendencies or habits do we need release when it comes to our health and healing. What priorities do we need or want to embrace to shift old behaviours?
With Spring on the horizon, many of us in the northern hemisphere are itching to have that Spring fever. The growing energy of Sol beckons us out of our dark cocoons, urging us to stretch and wipe the sleep from our eyes.
This full moon is occuring at 11 degrees Virgo directly opposite the sun in Pisces. Virgo rules the mundane tasks that are daily life, Pisces rules imagination, dreams, and the ethers. It's time to wake up and be very discerning about what serves us and what doesn't.
Virgo is the goddess of harvest, the sovereign high priestess. It's time to separate the wheat from the chaff and separate what stays and what goes. Harvest the growth from the seeds that were planted last fall before our deep slumber. The tools that got us through the winter may need to go into storage and be switched with ones that can serve us through the thaw.
Here is the mantra for this full moon:
I awaken from the slumber of darkness,
To be reborn anew.
With a clear and discerning heart,
I prune what is no longer needed.
Standing raw and naked,
I am washed clean by the rain
Ready to begin tending to the new growth surrounding me.
