"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Virgo Full Moon - Paying Attention To The Details

   Today's Full Moon takes place at 1:08pm on the 26th degree of Virgo, a degree I am quite familiar with, as my natal Moon is situated there. When the Full Moon is here, that means the Sun is on the opposite point in Pisces creating the give and take of an opposition. Organization, weeding out and polishing our skills are some of the attributes of this Mutable Earth sign. Other positive key words associated with Virgo are integrity, discernment and analysis, while criticism, over-thinking and  perfectionist carry the  more negative traits of Virgo.

   We started out with the Pisces New Moon two weeks ago setting the stage for rest and retreat, some down time, reflection and letting go, a time of compassionate understanding and a feeling of connection with the greater whole. Building on those unseen vibrational connections with others, including animals and having two planets (Mars and Saturn) turn retrograde while giant Jupiter turned direct, has been the underlying theme since the beginning of the month. Saturn slowing down in mysterious Scorpio and Mars having to put the brakes on in Libra gives everyone a sense of time standing still while events in the world keep swirling around us.

   Where do you have to shift through information to discern your own needs of organization and orderliness? Perhaps you still need time to walk along the beach and clear your head or time to go through paperwork and finish those taxes. Saturn in Scorpio will help you uncover the missing paperwork when you put your full attention on it. It may seem that what you need is at odds with what the boss or others in power want right now, just do your best to keep your head down and get done what needs doing. Notice the details in your everyday life and keep polishing your own skills as you wait for the tide to turn.

   A few thoughts on a current event... a plane goes missing over the ocean thousands of miles away and we all wonder... how can that happen in this day and age of technological advances when private citizens can get an app for their cell phone that shows planes landing and taking off all around them?! Scorpio darkness and mystery adds to questions of Neptunian sleight of hand, or fogginess. Where did it go? Neptune in Pisces is conjunct Mercury in the Full Moon chart, adding haziness to possible deceit in what we are hearing. Keep shifting until you find your own truth and continue to tune into yourself and connect with inner guidance/compass for what your direction needs to be.

   We do indeed live in interesting times! Remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground while checking in with your own heart~
