Thursday, March 5th we have a Full Moon in the sign of Virgo. Virgo is a mutable earth sign, so it’s energy is practical and adaptable. Virgo is about perfecting things, helping us to be more efficient and useful. There is also a deep sense of service with Virgo. At the Full Moon the Sun is directly opposite the Moon. This Full Moon occurs at 15 degrees of Virgo with the Sun at 15 of Pisces. The Virgo/Pisces axis is the axis of healing both physical (Virgo) and spiritual (Pisces). When this axis is stimulated, as it is with this Full Moon, the awareness we garner is that of what needs healing. The Sun in this chart is conjoined Chiron in Pisces. Chiron is the archetype of the wounded healer, and in Pisces the wound is one of separation from Source/God/Goddess. It is also the wound of the separation of spirit and flesh, a very Piscean Age notion.
Since the inception of the Garden of Eden Myth, we have been told that spirit is holy and flesh is profane. We are both spirit and flesh and saying that our earthly bodies are profane is a no win scenario for everyone, we are being told that we are sinful because we have a body! Try living without a body! It is insane, and quite frankly psychologically splits us. It works against our ability to integrate, and become whole. This is also seen in the denigration of the feminine. In Astrology the two elements associated with the feminine are Earth and Water. Earth is our physical body and Water our emotional body. Virgo is an earth sign and Pisces a water sign. It is time to integrate our whole nature and balance the male (Fire/Spirit & Air/Mental) with the Feminine. Only in this can we become whole or ‘wholey’.
Along with the conjunction of the Sun to Chiron, the Sun/Chiron conjunction is part of a Yod or ‘Finger of God’ configuration in this chart. The Yod requires us to make adjustments. The Sun/Chiron is in an opportunistic sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. The lines of communication are open for us to talk about our wounding through a sense of powerlessness (Pluto in Capricorn). How can we be empowered if half of our being is not being valued? The third point in this yod is Jupiter, the planet that the finger of god is pointing at. Jupiter is in Leo retrograde. Jupiter is the planet associated with our understanding, our philosophy of life, which includes our religious philosophies. Leo is the sign of both leadership and creativity. In the body Leo rules the heart. It seems that ‘God’ is asking us to look within our hearts, to open them to each other, to come to the realization that we are all one (Pisces) and that we must be in service to healing each other (Virgo) body, mind, feelings and spirit.
We are in the New Paradigm, the more conscious you are, the greater influence you have. We cannot get caught up in fear, we must move into our hearts and love each other and facilitate in healing each other. The atrocities we see played out in the world come from a place of separation, of alienation and of a heart closed to compassion. It is time to open up to the Love and only through love can we heal, ourselves, others and the planet.
