The Full Moon in Virgo will be emanating a strong lunar energy that will be pulling our emotions to the surface and also delivering awareness and clarity – bringing abrupt but highly positive change.
We will all feel this moon’s intensity, regardless of our zodiac sign, however, those who were born under Virgo will feel it a little more intensely than others.
Virgo is a grounded Earth sign, so it is likely we will find ourselves being ‘pulled back down to Earth’ if there are areas of our life that we have been unrealistically fantasising about or simply living under an illusion.
We are currently going through a period where our entire belief systems are being questioned and where our perspective will dramatically be altering. This might be somewhat of a challenge, as Virgo doesn’t appreciate sudden change, so although we may be receiving numerous insights and we will be going through a radical awakening, it may feel a little uncomfortable to fully accept that all may not be as it once seemed.
Full Moons are always a time for releasing, and with this current energy there could never be a more optimum time to let go of anything unhealthy and depleting, particularly as we are about to experience the Equinox energies and enter Aries season – the start of a new astrological year. It’s also a good time for spring cleaning, clearing clutter, tying up loose ends and receiving long-awaited resolution or closure.
The lessons that have been presented to us since the beginning of Aries season last year, on March 21 2021, will be learned during this Moon phase, as we come to a greater understanding of why certain people played significant parts in our lives, and we piece prominent events together. When we make sense of all that has occurred during the past twelve months and illusions dissipate, all associated karma will also be released.
Our priorities will be changing and we will recognise where our energy is being drained, so it won’t just be our physical world that receives a shake-up, we will also be going through major internal, emotional shifts.
This is an intense phase that will cleanse anything that feels toxic in our lives, which includes bad habits, unhealthy thought patterns, reactive behaviours, outdated beliefs, and irrational fear-based thoughts and feelings that drain our energy and leave us feeling anxious and burnt out.
Also, ties that energetically bind us to people or situations that are detrimental to us or that limit us in any way will easily be severed during this period, and we will feel the freedom to finally walk away with peace, love, compassion, and forgiveness in our hearts. In particular, we will feel the urge to remove ourselves from dynamics with anyone who consistently provokes arguments or those who are aggressive, controlling, manipulative, deceptive, judgmental, overly critical, and generally abusive.
We will likely be feeling nostalgic due to the accumulation of emotional cosmic energy, so we may find ourselves looking back at our past in an attempt to find answers. This might look like ruminating on why certain relationships ended or why we are struggling to let go of relationships that are shrouded in confusion and heartache. Fortunately, our intuition is at an all-time high during this Full Moon, so it’s the perfect time to go within and listen carefully to our inner voice.
We will be wanting to speak our truth, and as Virgo is also associated with healing, forgiveness and accountability, this could be the perfect time to dive inwards and attend to inner wounds that need attention.
We may also find we feel compelled to reach out to make amends with those we have unresolved conflict with, and that we are ready to communicate in a clearer and a more open and honest way. Fortunately, Virgo is highly sensitive, compassionate and empathetic, and has a need to understand others on the deepest level, so it is likely any tension will be effortlessly cleared and stronger bonds will be created.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury so we may find we are more in our headspace than heartspace over these coming days and we will likely be far more logical and rational – not allowing the heart to overrule the head. We might find this a little challenging, due to the moon being in close opposition to Neptune, the planet of dreams, ideation and delusion. Therefore, we could find we quickly switch between believing in the illusions we have created and recognising where we have been optimistically fooling ourselves.
There may be temporary blurred lines between our imagination and the truth, particularly concerning how we have viewed some of our closest relationships and we may not receive full clarity on everything we are feeling and seeing until after the Full Moon has passed. However, we will constantly be receiving signs that some of our long-held beliefs have been romanticised to create a comfort zone for when we needed an escape from reality.
It is highly likely our dreams, or possibly nightmares, may be more realistic and intense, so it’s worth being aware that it could be during sleep that we experience the greatest amount of turmoil. Whether we remember our dreams or not, what we dream about can significantly influence how we feel throughout the day and point towards what is weighing heavily in our thoughts or hearts.
Over the next 24 hours we may notice we are overthinking and over-analysing more than normal, and this can lead to feeling wired and a little on edge. It is vital to recognise when this is happening and take a step back to process all the new data running at full speed through our heads.
Virgo is practical and hard-working and helps us become more organised and productive, so we will likely find we awaken over these next few days with a burst of energy, wanting to rearrange and restructure major aspects of our life and home.
When we let go of items we are no longer aligned with we will instantly feel lighter, freer and less overwhelmed as certain objects can carry unhappy memories and low vibrations.
We will also have the desire for more stability and balance, so could find we reassess job opportunities, our home and relationship dynamics, or finances. We will likely also be feeling highly curious and eager to learn, and could find ourselves researching subjects in depth, and possibly wanting to make major changes on our career path.
Virgo is known for having a deep desire to be of service, so it is possible we will have a strong impulse to help with humanitarian causes, volunteering and offering assistance to those around us. We might even feel the urge to sign up for an educational course in care, mentoring or nursing sectors.
If there have been blockages preventing our creativity and aspirations we will notice we are easily able to overcome them, and will be feeling more energised and inspired than ever before. Virgo energy brings with it high expectations, and can bring up issues surrounding control, criticism and seeking perfection, so it is important not to be too harsh on ourselves, and rather than forcing anything, just surrendering to allow a natural flow.
Virgo can bring in the need for solitude and peace, and we may be tempted to spend the day, or part of it, free from interruption and focusing on much-needed self love and care so we can feel more grounded, harmonious and centered.
This Full Moon marks the end of a chapter or the completion of a significant phase in our lives and an exciting restart. It brings closure, transformation, rebirth, and the manifestation of things we have been working toward. It is a time where we can reflect on what no longer serves us so that, with gratitude, we can release old energy and create a clean, brand new space to begin again.
