Sunday, March 12, 2017 – FULL MOON IN VIRGO OPPOSITE SUN IN PISCES VENUS RETROGRADE IN PISCES/ARIES UNTIL APRIL 15, 2017
Let the games begin!
We know what Full Moons bring. Emotions, emotions, emotions and sometimes out of control emotions. We know what Venus brings emotions, emotions, emotions. The Moon is our emotional thermometer and Venus is our emotional barometer. Each one of these two powerful planets are indicators of how we process emotional experiences; especially those that have to do with love energy. How we love ourselves and how we love others. How we react and respond to what we believe love is.
With this Full Moon in an earthy sign (Virgo) opposite the Sun in a watery sign (Pisces) we have an opportunity to learn what it really means to balance the emotional with the practical. Pisces energy is fluid. Virgo energy is contained. Earth needs water or it gets hard and crusty. Water needs earth or there would be floods everywhere. So you see we need both of these elements. To make the case for Virgo and Pisces and how each one of these signs are critical to supporting our lives; we must be aware of the boundaries necessary for the practical and emotional aspects of life to come together in perfect balance. Full Moons bring opportunities to bring opposites together by reflecting as well as restructuring according to the signs involved.
What makes this Full Moon on Sunday even more powerful is that Venus; the planet of love and beauty will be retrograde in Pisces on Sunday adding to the Full Moon experience. Venus retrograde is considered to be quite a beautiful thing. It gives us an opportunity to review what it is we believe LOVE brings to our life. When a planet goes backwards it is if we can turn around and take one more look. With love relationships; part of what is occurring is an opportunity to reflect on who the people were that have shared their love with you in the past as well as who the people are that share love with you now and finally what is the value of that love? Venus brings love in many ways. Love from people, love from possessions, love from self-worth and even love from our animals.
The sign of Virgo brings discernment. Just what we need right now. The ability to discern what love means to us up close and personal. So here is what you can do to get the best from this Full Moon/Venus Retrograde transit on Sunday. Take some time to journal out what you have received with regards to love from the past lovers of your life. What did each one bring you that has made you a better person and if you are with the same love you have always been with; answer the same question. If you are single and want to be loved; what is it you have to share with another person? Then look around at what it is you love in the other areas of your life. First and foremost how much do you love yourself? Secondly how much love is shared with your loved ones? And moving on from there; your prized possessions; your writings; your creative ideas; your roommates if you have them; and, of course, your animals.
I guarantee that once you have done this exercise you will be able to know more about what your true heart desire. What have you given up to get what you want from love? We know true love can only be had with compromise. Ask yourself if you compromise too much or not enough. And this works for whatever and whomever we give our hearts to. By the way, reflection is best when it can support our present and future experiences. So don’t make this exercise a pity party. Make it a power party. You alone are in control of your happiness thermometer and barometer. Learn to set the temperature to give you the most quality.
Enjoy the process of discovery! Discovering just how much you give to love and for love and much you get from what you give. Wow. Now that’s Spirit talking.
As always the astrological sign and house placement of both the Moon and Venus in your sacred birth chart will bring you closer to understanding the effects of how this Full Moon in Virgo/Venus Rx energy can support your life. In all the years I have done this work I truly believe that astrological transits bring possibilities! There is always a new way to reinvent; restructure; redefine and renew. As the title of my book reminds us “Life is Good…When You Do the Work”.
I will be writing another blog specifically addressing when Venus goes direct in Aries on April 15th. For now be well and know that LOVE IS ALL THERE IS!

P.S. I will be starting astrology classes in the Spring. “Astrology for the over 50 Crowd”. So much still to learn about our spiritual/astrological journey after the big 50!
