Full Moon :: March 1 2018 :: 7:52 pm ET :: 11 degrees Virgo

Sliding gleefully down a waterslide. Full immersion when you reach the bottom. Once there, time stops. You sink and you soak. When you emerge you are exhilarated and joyful. You’ve taken the plunge. You have arrived and you are reconnected.

The watery plunge is a Pisces story of moving deep into a well of spiritual truth and self-discovery. It’s important to remember that none of it would be possible without the Virgo part of the symbol—the slide itself. 

Virgo is in charge of the mundane, every-day aspects of life that allow us to be of service to ourselves and others. Pisces is what happens when we expand beyond the earth realm and dissolve into our psychic sensitivity, intuition, emotions and imagination.

To build a slide for yourself, you have to pay attention to the details. You have to stand with both feet on the ground and decide step-by-step what you are willing to accomplish. If you are going to step up to the Virgo challenge, you create healthy habits that will propel you along with a force as strong as gravity.

If you don’t do these things, the structure will fall apart and you won’t get to ascend. You won’t get to plunge and dissolve. You won’t transcend.

Energy runs high and big on a Full Moon and it’s easy to get ahead of yourself with overreactions, big emotions and powerful expression. But this Virgo Moon urges you to go small. Go in. Go for the detailed look. Survey your craftsmanship. Have you been attending to your vessel? Are your calculations working? Are you maintaining the daily structure?

With a mashup of planets Pisces planets currently murmuring a lullaby that soothes us into a technicolor dream scene, it’s hard to get your feet on the ground. Yet this Full Moon cuts in like a quick plunge into cold water. She shakes you awake and says, attend! Attend to the mechanics in your life that support you. Do it so that you can go even deeper into your reverie, because you will emerge assured that your spiritual journey serves on an earthly level.

If you are attending to these supports, then this Moon invites you to take a ride on the Pisces exhale. Use your physical earth-world alignment to propel you into a Piscean sea of soul-truth.

You get an opportunity to mobilize yourself for some kind of improvement project. Put your effort in, but don’t expect the path to the finish line to be straight and easy. You may meander. You may make some progress and then take a step back to reassess. Keep plugging away.

Notice the moments when you’re working and your mind wanders. Hands busy, mind free to travel. There may be a special insight that comes through in these moments. Open your mind up to receiving new answers, but don’t just sit around and wait for them to float in. Keep busy and move yourself toward expansion.

You have worked to get where you are. Let the accolades come in. Can you receive an award if you aren’t present for the experience? You have to accept that you have done something deserving. You have to convince that voice in your head that you are worthy. The good news is that this should feel easy to do right now. Soak it all in. On some level, you have been learning lessons and applying them. Even if everything isn’t Virgo-standard perfect, applaud yourself for lessons learned and accept the rewards that are being delivered.
