Tonight is a Full Moon that I have been preparing for since before the last new moon. The culmination of everything that was worked for since the New Moon, and as always, setting the stage for what is next to come.
There are two sides of this, as usual. The Yin and the Yang. Let me describe first the Astrological qualities of this full moon, and then tell you about the personal happenings going on in my own life.
Tonight, the Full Moon is occurring in the Sign of Virgo. Virgo is the symbolic energy of the independent creative woman, the virgin. In Tarot it is linked to the card “The Hermit”, which is all about inspiration from within, circumspection (looking at the whole of things and taking in all of the data), and blazing the trail based on your own knowing, rather than following in the path set out by another.
As this relates to the Full Moon, this is the time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. This is a time which is emotional, romantic, and meaningful beyond measure.
This Full Moon is all about balance between the day-to-day functions and minutia that we often get caught up in, and our own spiritual health and growth. There is a power greater than we can understand at work here, moving through us to create an inner peace to the turmoil, so that we can tackle the outer world turmoil in greater stride than we had before.
Now, CafeAstrology did a great job of writing up some stuff about it, so instead of try and paraphrase it i’m just gonna quote them! Thanks CafeAstrology!
” Some sort of crisis (which can be a crisis of consciousness) or sudden awareness of a lack in our lives provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs within the context of the house polarity where the Full Moon occurs in our natal charts. This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between work and service, practicality and impracticality, criticism and acceptance. ”
With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves, and to let things out of our systems. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is not particularly rational as yet.
I’ve often found its really helpful to hear from someone else what THEY are going through, in order to get some clarity on what’s going on in my life… So i’d like to do that for you now. Instead of try and write it all down, I’m just going to record it. 2 birds with one stone, right? I need to make more content for youtube anyways, and this is a great place to start!!
Peace to you and Yours!
