The Virgo/Pisces Full Moon:
February 28 March 1, 2010
"You have to belong to yourSelf before you can give up your Self."
The Full Moon in Virgo occurs on Sunday, February 28, 2010 at 11:38am EST/ 8:38am PST.
This month, we find ourselves in the "in-between' space where the formless Piscean ocean meets the cultivated landscape of Virgo. The End, the Beginning and the Harvest. Water and Earth. Change and Stability. Spirit and Soul. Union and Uniqueness. Surrender and Service.
The elements of these signs are water and earth, containers and sustainers, with both elements and signs considered feminine. This is a source of Creativity within us, which calls forth the Sacred within us. Call on the Goddess this month and ask for a dream, a vision, an awakening. This is the time to be receptive, not active.
This means spend some time listening to your 5 senses and to your imagination before you act on anything. Use your "uncommon senses' and stay open to Spirit. Be receptive to the moment and see how you dance with it.
When we're rigid in our sense of self, we don't dance very well with the All. But when our sense of Self is deep, our dance, like the Dancer on the Greater Trump, The World, can create peace and unity. In opening to these greater energies, we become a channel for a new Creation.
Part of our service to the world is to learn to be at peace with ourselves so that we can create peace with everyone we come in contact with. We can create a loving space that enlivens Spirit with every Being we contact, once we connect to the Divine Spirit within ourselves and learn to know and love ourselves. This is the Pisces/Virgo task.
This Pisces/Virgo full Moon calls us to be healers of each other. Compassion and discernment are the values to cultivate, while we learn to see the Sacred in our ordinary lives. We are all wounded; we can all be healed. Loving ourselves enough to take the time to heal ourselves is the goal. If we can do it, then perhaps we'll learn to see our fellow beings with compassion and understanding.
It is hard to love ourselves, but if we can't, how will we ever trust ourselves enough to let go and dissolve into the mystic
Piscean unity that this full Moon opens for us?
The 6th and 12th houses, the Virgo Pisces axis, are concerned with "improvement'. Improvement means to benefit. Improvement implies growth and evolution. This full Moon gives us the opportunity to benefit from the deeper archetypal vision we discovered last month. You improve when you have a bigger vision to bounce off of. You expand and evolve your understanding of life when you have a big vision. And it gives you courage to stand up for what you believe in.
We'll also benefit from the presence of Jupiter conjoined the Sun this full Moon. Jupiter expands and enlivens whatever it touches. It makes us curious enough to explore the Unknown. The Sun is our sense of Self and purpose, so Jupiter, which rules Pisces along with Neptune (remember the Neptune/Chiron/Jupiter conjunctions last year) is infusing the Piscean sense of Mystical Union with last year's collective Aquarian egalitarian vision. Our purpose is to feel that we are all in this together, that we are one family, one world.
