Virgo although an Earth sign, is ruled by the planet Mercury which is associated with Air. This airy element, gives Virgo's the sharp analytical mind their well known for.
Now is a time to get things in order, write lists, strategize & make plans. Take the time to clarify thoughts & stream line intentions & goals. This period can be seen as our personal building blocks, we our creating brand new life architecture for the next 6 months.
We are reminded during this transit of the fine line between being discerning & being critical. This can be with others, but particularly we are reminded to dispense of self-critical tendencies.
During this time we might feel irritable, patience being at an all time low - our nerves might be frayed or we might have the experience of being overwhelmed or battle weary, this is all be linked to the last of a long procession of Uranus Pluto Square transits, the last one happening on March 17th.
In the face of this last Uranus Pluto Square, our challenge is to take a soft approach, one of patience, forgiveness & compassion.
This Full Moon we are being asked to listen to the wise words of our inner teacher, to develop & grow, it is of great importance to listen & trust in our own internal barometer. All the validation we seek is within, theirs no need to turn to outside sources.
The pace of life now needs to be slow, so that we can fully physically & mentally assimilate all that we are experiencing.
Harvest & Purification:
Virgo being a sign of an abundant harvest, we should see signs of things we sowed 6 months prior coming to fruition, it is also a time of new beginnings, new seeds are sown.
For this new cycle to take seed , first we must go through a period of purging, purification - cleaning out the old to make way for the new.
This is a great time to have a physical, emotional & mental detox - look at negative habits, unhealthy relationships, old thought patterns, toxic behaviour, what ever is holding you back from reaching your full potential, now is a powerful time to release it. We cultivate a higher faith in life by trusting our feelings & intuiting the path forward.
To aid with this, burn a mixture of the Virgo incenses, listed in the left hand column.
Mercury also rules healing & with the Sun in Virgo's opposite sign of Pisces, this creates a deep sense of compassionate & loving care. So be kind to yourself & others, this transit can have a few stressful ups & downs so the extra tlc, will be well appreciated.
With transits to Capricorn, although the healing is soft, it is also very powerful.
Focus on "hands-on healing" & "crystal healing" at this time.
Laying with a carnelian crystal on your sacral chakra & your hands slightly tucked under the small of your back for 10 mins in the evenings will help greatly.
As Virgo is very much about physical healing, try as much as possible to focus on nourishing foods, exercise & going to bed earlier this next fortnight.
Rituals this month should focus on wellness & balance, creating a simple daily routine is the most effective.
In fact with all things in our lives we want to be thinking, the simpler the better during this period.
Meditation & quiet contemplation is of greater importance over the next 2 weeks. Virgo encourages us to spend more time in nature & with animals. A good way to do this is by mediating with your back against a tree, or my talking to plants, birds, animals & insects.
Rituals can be a simple as mindfully cooking a nourishing home cook meal. Pouring love into every stir of the pot, or actively noticing the flowers for 5 minutes a day as you walk along from A-B getting some fresh air.
