The Full Moon falls at 19 degrees of Virgo on March 9th coinciding with Mercury stationing Direct in Aquarius. This “Worm Moon” which signals the start of spring and earthworms rising to the surface of the soil may also be bringing many other previously hidden things and abilities within view and reach. Since the Moon will be opposite of Neptune it may be still be difficult to discern the appropriate course of action regarding things observed. The details may be overwhelming and little patience goes a long way in this situation.
The second decan of Virgo highlighted brings a mounting up of Saturnian themes, and a trine aspect by the Full Moon in this sign powers up the conjunctions between Mars, Pallas Athene, Jupiter and Pluto in Saturn-ruled Capricorn this month. In addition, Saturn is amplified in the late degrees of his own sign and gearing up for the ingress into Aquarius on March 21st. That the aspects formed are harmonious should be encouraging in a time where there is so much discouragement in the air. It means that hope should not be abandoned and redoubling the efforts toward improvements will only help the chances of success.
Pallas Athene in Capricorn positively ignited by the Virgo Moon assists all practical healing applications, particularly those relating to structural integrity. The warrior goddess of wisdom, healing and fine arts is a motivational force in times of fear and uncertainty. This is an influence that can aid us in becoming more organized in various aspects of life. Whatever the focus is and wherever problems beg for solutions there is obviously much work to be done but the way for greater productivity and effectiveness is finally being paved. Someone out there and I’m not sure who first came up with it said “Don’t give up before your miracle occurs”. That statement is ever so appropriate to remember now.
The current worldwide theme around health and hygiene has been heightened because without them we are not only vulnerable to various forms of disease but unable to fully enjoy anything that we have worked so hard to accomplish. Due to mainstream media there is so much ridiculous nonsense being circulated. It’s just so easy for people to get scattered and lose sight of what’s important.
Leading up to the Full Moon, Venus in Taurus forms a conjunction to Uranus and sextile to the North Node in Cancer. These aspects may seem to be challenging in the areas of attachments to things and people remaining the way that they are. Provided that there is a readiness to move on to the next phase of development this influence will not be too disruptive. Rather it may be the signal of exciting new opportunities opening up in ways, places and situations that would probably not have been imagined. In other words, there may not be a whole lot of “security” indicated in the stars right now but that could be quite liberating.
