Under the influence of the Virgo Full SuperMoon (™ Richard Nolle) on March 9, 2020 we encounter a polarity between an urge to transcend life’s cold hard realities and the necessity of a well-defined and grounded life in the material world. With the Pisces Sun conjunct Neptune for a double dose of Piscean glamour, magic, creative imagine, and potential for confusion, the scale is heavily weighted against the Virgo Moon which seeks to create order and find meaning in the smallest of details that are necessary for life in a body.
What is a SuperMoon? A SuperMoon (coined by astrologer Richard Nolle and now in common usage) is a Full or New Moon that occurs when the Moon is at its closest point to the Earth (perigee). The Moon appears larger in the sky, and is not only symbolically more powerful but also arguably exerts a stronger force on human behavior, amplifying the effects of the Full Moon.
Jupiter harmonizes with this Full Moon (and Neptune) to help to provide the expansiveness that further enhances the Piscean energies, so even though this is the Virgo Full Moon we may find the Piscean energies to be in ascendance. This requires a fair amount of letting go of our need to control while still maintaining our daily rituals and routines for the Virgo Moon. Meanwhile Venus in Taurus, seeking stability and security the pleasures of earthly existence, conjoins rebellious Uranus for a heavy dose of disruption and an urge for a radical change that will shake up our routines and create more space and air.
Under this Full Moon we find ourselves needing to integrate all of these opposing forces: Mundane details vs creative inspiration. Comfort and security vs change and newness. Practicality vs emotion and escapism. And all under the heightened emotionality of the Full Moon.
To aid us in this process I offer this lovely quote from Suzy Kassem:
Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them. Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them. We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside. None of us are just black or white, or never wrong and always right. No one. No one exists without polarities. Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them, and within them.
