Full Moon in Virgo March 7th. The Virgo Full Moon on Tuesday (EST) occurs with Saturn at the 29th degree of Aquarius, just about to spill into Pisces. The Virgo Moon is the only personal planet in an Earth sign, and with three planetary bodies in the mystical watery sign of Pisces it may be difficult to ground into the practical realm of life for the next few days. If that occurs, the best thing to do is to go with the flow.

The Pisces influence is wonderful for anything creative or magical, but with the Moon full in Virgo there is a strong emphasis on ritual and routine. Mars in Gemini is in a strong square to the Sun and Moon this week which suggests that we will likely find ourselves somewhat scattered under these energies, so this Full Moon will be better for planning and imagining than actually implementing something which requires a disciplined approach.

Saturn at the true cusp of Aquarius and Pisces is intensely idealistic – Aquarian idealism is intellectual and Piscean idealism is emotional – combining the two offers up a banquet of visionary longing for a world that offers greater perfection than the one we actually live in. The Virgo Moon resists this broadening of the scope of our experience and prefers to be grounded in the mundane details of life in physical form. It anchors us into a heart of practical reality where we are able to make the small changes that can ultimately result in the satisfaction of the larger Aquarius/Pisces vision. In any case, this lunation will impel us to seek more from our […]

Astrological news this week: Stelliums, Virgo Full Moon, and Equinox news

Planetary forecast for the week of March 14-21, 2022.

You might have read some different articles this week about the intensity of the planets this week because the planets are all in a bunch. Astrological news is just like any other kind of media – we thrive on drama to bring in the eyeballs. But it seems to me that this week’s astrology is not nearly as dramatic as it was a few weeks ago when the Moon was in Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces and the planets were in even a tighter window of the zodiac wheel.

As this chart shows, on February 27th all of the visible planetary bodies (plus Neptune and Pluto) were within 60 degrees of the chart wheel which is very tight indeed. Marc Edmund Jones named this chart pattern the “bundle” when describing the natal chart – an intense focus which can lack perspective. This tight bundle intensified around February 26th with the Moon in Capricorn entering the bundle, and began to ease when the Moon moved into Aries on March 3rd and departed from the crowded area of the zodiac.

In any case, don’t be alarmed when you read articles like this, things are difficult enough in the world without adding unnecessary panic and anxiety to the mix.

Virgo Full Moon: The Moon will be full in Virgo on March 18, 2022 at 3:17 am EDT, just before the equinox.  Every Full Moon is full of gifts and blessings, and at this time when we have the Sun in a stellium in Pisces encouraging dreams and inspiration but also confusion, the Virgo Moon helps us to ground into our bodies […]

2.27.21 The meaning of the Virgo Full Moon

artist unknown

Today’s Virgo Full Moon helps us to ground in the midst of the electrical influences of three planets in Aquarius and the expansive transcendence of three planets in Pisces. Aquarian idealism is intellectual, and Piscean idealism is emotional – combining the two offers up a banquet of visionary longing for a world that offers greater perfection than the one we actually live in. And because the Virgo Full Moon seeks perfection, or at least continual improvement, the theme of envisioning a path to a life which is more ideal is the theme of this Full Moon.  It anchors us into a heart of practical reality where we are able to make the small changes that can ultimately result in the satisfaction of the larger Aquarius/Pisces vision. In any case, this lunation will impel us to seek more from our lives – to align with our center of Spirit and from there, create change in the material world in which we live.

The Virgo Full Moon is an interesting dance balancing our attachment to the mundane world through the Moon in Virgo with the transcendent and otherworldly longings of the Sun which is in Pisces.  During the Full Moon the lunar instincts dominate the solar conscious mind, and Virgoan areas of security and a need for order are highlighted.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury and Mercury is still in its shadow period after having turned direct in Aquarius last week.  We may be flooded with flashes of insight and exciting new information, but Virgo doesn’t trust anything this unpredictable and encourages us to consider every detail before making a decision to move forward.

Creating order out of chaos can be considered the theme of this Full Moon as we move […]

2.26.21 Jupiter trine the North Node as the Virgo Full Moon begins to blossom

art by Lisbeth Cheever-Gessaman

Jupiter is a planet of great abundance and beneficence, so when it harmonizes in a trine to the North Node of fate it is a lucky time; a time when doors will open when and where we least expect it, and when if we allow it, we can be guided towards the best route to fulfillment.  It sounds easy, and it can be, but we often don’t recognize opportunities when they come our way.  When Jupiter is in chart, it’s best to pay attention and recognize that if the door closes before you, it’s really not your door.

The Virgo Full Moon won’t culminate until very early (EST) Saturday morning, but the Full Moon energies are beginning to blossom. Virgo seeks to adapt to circumstances in the most efficient and orderly way possible, but we also have three planets in Pisces, the sign opposite to Virgo.  Where Virgo is rooted in the mundane day-to-day world, Pisces seeks to transcend this reality in favor of something more ascended, or more creative.  If we integrate the creativity of Pisces with the efficient plans of Virgo, we can design a superb pathway towards an abundant future, with Jupiter’s blessing. ❤️

Weekly update for February 22-March 1, 2021: Virgo Full Moon and the end of Mercury retrograde

In this week’s video I begin with some philosophy about fate and the astrological chart, a question I was asked by a viewer recently. Mercury just turned direct, but its motion won’t return to normal for another week or so and I explain why.  We’ll explore why the Virgo Full Moon comes at the perfect time for the changes that are formulating under the ongoing square from Saturn to Uranus.  There’s a lot packed into this video and I hope you enjoy it!

Transcript (transcribed by tiny little creatures inside my computer and roughly edited by me, please excuse errors and consider watching the video instead!)

Hi, everybody, my name is Lynn Hayes. Welcome back to my channel. And if you’re new here, I’m really glad you’ve joined me today. In today’s video, we’ll be talking about the astrology for the week of February 22 through March 1 2021.

There’s a few things I would like to talk about, of course, before we get to the astrology for the week ahead. One thing that came up in the comments from last week’s video is somebody who was asking why her life is so hard. That question is not new. I think that’s an interesting topic to discuss when we’re talking about an astrological chart, some people have astrological charts that don’t involve a lot of trauma. They don’t involve a lot of challenge. They don’t show violence, they don’t show depression, particularly and some people […]
