Full Moon in Virgo | Tuesday, February 19
0 degrees | 9:53am CST
Virgo: the functionary of the zodiac. Humble, patient, and diligent, its agenda is literally just to get things right. With Tuesday’s Full Supermoon at 0 degrees, Virgo’s athletic commitment to the regeneration and the maintenance of ideals is robustly lit up. This Full Moon offers the hope and optimistic belief in our own creative capacity to work toward whatever it is that matters most to us, whatever makes us feel most connected in this existence.
Virgo is the only sign in the zodiac associated with a female humanoid figure. This full, round, 0 degree Moon reflects back the image of a pregnant mother. She knows the mysteries of the womb, creating the order and stability required to gestate new life and usher it into its full expression. Though she curates order, Virgo is fully aware of the importance of inspiration. To become more than routine, Virgo needs to make action in the name of something vast, and so she draws from the abstract pools of her counterpart, Pisces’ multidimensional unity consciousness, the infinite web of connection permeating reality. Virgo’s own ruler, Mercury, sits conjunct hypnotic Neptune in Pisces, strengthening our access to this infinite wellspring of the collective consciousness, and offering up treasures from the deep.
Jupiter, however, strong as ever in Sagittarius, squares Neptune and Mercury. This is a big signature that speaks in strokes so broad the mind literally has to bend to perceive its meaning. Mercury conjunct Neptune in Pisces opens the aperture of our minds so that the amount of ambient psychic energy being processed is much higher than usual. But with the king of the skies, giant Jupiter, squaring this otherworldly Piscean duo, how we handle this information is very important. Psychic information, which comes from a transpersonal web of connection, is all too easy to confuse with projected emotional information, which comes from our hormonal responses to stimuli. Failing to sort through what’s what would directly violate Virgo’s civilized code of conduct, thus debilitating the magic of this Moon.
This Moon wants you to see clearly. It wants you to sort through your emotional landscape so that whatever is gestating within you has the space to come into the world. Check yourself and see where you’ve been humbled and where you’ve been empowered in manifesting your creative and relational visions since Winter Solstice. With Pisces Season beginning, we’re moving toward the Spring Equinox now. It’s time to start walking the line between light and dark and seeing how our strategies have worked and which have to be discarded or reworked. There’s no rush now: patience is our virtue of the day, and clear unbiased vision.
While patience is the order of the day, the skies don’t let us off easy with this Moon. The chart of the Full Moon has heavy-handed aspects that make our emotional and creative investments out to be the most loaded areas of our psyches. Venus, lady of love, beauty, and art, conjuncts the two gods of hellfire and brimstone in austere Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto, as well as the South Node, which purges. Few other signatures could make it as glaringly obvious that we need to make space for some chats with the shadow sides of our habits in relating to ourselves and others. While the Neptune-Mercury combo bring out the most spiritualized of experiences, the Venus-Saturn-Pluto bunch bring out base emotions like fear, greed, resistance, and jealousy. In relation to ourselves, our creativity, and to others, we can expect to see the best of ourselves and the worst of ourselves. Such an ambitious Capricornian signature asks us to accept the challenge to reconcile these aspects.
Fortunately, Virgo loves to master and perfect. Her strongest skill is in sorting through material so that the best can come through. And Virgo, Mercury-ruled, is heady. She likes nothing less than to sacrifice her loftier principles for her animal impulses. Base emotions have to be acknowledged and processed, but it would devastate Virgo to let these emotions run totally loose and dictate the way we live our lives. Categorically accurate, this sign reminds us that while we live in animal bodies, we’re no longer just animals. Humans are hybrid beings, straddling planes of existence, and exploring the farthest reaches of free will and agency.
Harnessing agency and making conscious choices in our every relational move is the deep work of this Full Moon, and the secret to getting there is Capricornian pragmatism. Listen carefully for what works and what doesn’t in nurturing your sense of connection, and engage only the patterns that help you to move through and grow from emotional intensity. All patterns that keep you stuck in the intensity become material to purge.
This is a portal Moon. While your feathers may be ruffled by the Venus-Saturn-Pluto grouping, the Mercury-Neptune conjunction forms a tight sextile to it, supporting us in channeling higher consciousness when we meet with conflict in the 3D. This means that we can breathe into chaos, welcoming the wind it blows into our sails, and look to the bigger meaning without dragging conflict out. Stay proactive by sorting and organizing the meaning of your experiences, and remember to leave space in your organizational scheme for the unknown to surprise you. Allow yourself to move step by step, A to B instead of A to Z.
Let this Moon expand your awareness. Let it show you the full range of your motivations so that you become less of a stranger to yourself. Take time to organize your inner experiences but move right along to focus your attention on your growth process as you accept and meet challenges. Sort the wheat from the chaff; give yourself permission to be the best you can be. With a Virgo Full Moon, getting aligned with the tenderness of your growth potential will come as a relief.
