FULL Moon in Virgo 2/19/19
The Sun has moved into Pisces soon thereafter is FULL Moon in Virgo. Both at 0 degrees ushers in a feeling of newness, the Fool in Tarot or beginning energy. This is the first FULL Moon after the Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year two weeks ago.
Virgo is the archetype of the Virgin, as there is some implied naivete. The essence that is important in Virgo is humility and approaching life as if there is constant and never-ending improvement. Of course, we aim for mastery, yet there is so much to be gained by viewing the world with a lens that says "perfection is evolving, and through effort, I can choose to do my best at all times". Virgo does not sit in ego, yet rather invites the perspective that perfection can come through moving with humility. When we have humility, we are open to different ways to be. Virgo accepts that through service, we honor ourselves and others, and move closer to perfection.
Mars is flowing in aspect to the Full Moon with its recent move into Taurus. Taurus does not rush and although Mars is the Planet of Will and Action, we are advised to slow down and be in our bodies. When we ground ourselves and allow for the subtle natural rhythms, we can find that we can move forward more effortlessly now. Chiron has moved into Aries asking us to have the courage and face our fears.
The Virgo FULL Moon reminds us that self- care and our health are very important. Through taking care of ourselves we can be an open channel to the greater mysteries and divinity in our world.
How can we slow down and tune into our body? What is our saying to us? If we choose to make decisions that align us with our greatest self-care in mind, what happens? Do we feel more connected to all that is?

The asteroid Chiron, known as the wounded healer, is at the tail end of spending time in Pisces. On February 18, Chiron will enter Aries and stay there for the rest of the year. We had a glimpse of Chiron in Aries from April 17 to September 26 in 2018. In mythology Chiron was a Centaur, 1/2 man, 1/2 horse who was immortal and could not heal himself. He needed to learn to accept his wounding and incorporate that part of himself, his fears and insecurities, and rise above the wounds. In that process, he learned how to help others overcome their deep wounds.
With Chiron at the last degree of Pisces, the message is to "Let go, forgive, and release!" Pisces is the sign of the Mystic, the one who has one foot in this world and one in the heavens. Pisces is in the zodiacal journey learning to surrender to all that is. Control is an illusion and through aligning with the vast universe, Pisces finds peace. Pisces work is to let go and forgive as carrying the burdens and pains of the world do not serve. We can choose to release and turn over our ailments to the divine.
Since September 27th, all of us may have felt a particular wound was weighing heavy on us. We may have felt a crisis of faith or a lack of trust in the bigger picture. We may have witnessed or experienced some of our most challenging moments, moments that had us on our knees in anguish. These experiences may have led us to our faith, to the greater meaning of life.
Are there ways that you have been able to rise above the chaos and find compassion for yourself and others? Are you willing to forgive? Forgiveness does not mean that you have to forget wrongdoings. It means you choose to not allow that transgression to take hold of you. You choose to let go and not allow that energy to keep a space in your heart. It is a gift to give yourself.
As we step into Chiron in Aries, the journey will be more about courage. Courage to let your insecurities not be in the driver seat. To face your fears and do it anyway. To be brave in a world where you question whether you can weather the storm. Finding your courage and conviction will be the opportunity to develop yourself and heal. Channeling your inner warrior is the assignment. Stay strong and carry on!
