The Virgo Full SuperMoon, March 19 2011

SupermoonThe Moon will be full today, Saturday March 19th, at 2:10 pm EDT.  The Moon is full in Virgo, and it is opposite the Pisces Sun in the sky.  The Virgo/Pisces polarity relates to a blending of our experience of life in the material world (Virgo) with our desire to seek a more transcendent experience (Pisces).

As you probably know, this Moon is a Supermoon (® Richard Nolle) and is closer to the Earth than other times of the year (see this earlier article for more information)

When the Moon is full in that solilunar opposition, the influence of the Moon is more powerful, revealing our emotions and instincts and our hidden reactions to unseen events.  The Moon is invisible in daylight, and it is only in the darkness of the unconscious that our deeply ingrained emotional patterns come to light.

This Full Moon is at the end of Virgo which requires an orderly and methodical approach to the realm of feelings.  There is an attention to detail here, and a need to care for the details of life in a body, even as the Pisces Sun urges us to transcend this wordly life for something more magnificent.

But another energetic element is at work in the chart for the Full Moon – the incongruity between the Aries influence (Uranus, Jupiter and Mercury) of aggression and defense combined with the Pisces influence (Sun, Mars and Chiron) that seeks harmony and flow.  Under the influence of this Full Moon we are being called not only to honor the daily rituals and routines (Virgo) of life and self-care, but also to remain strong and vigilant (Aries) while maintaining a grounded (Virgo) attunement to the spiritual forces (Pisces) that keep us evolving as spiritual beings having a human experience.

The Full Moon in Virgo (and therefore the Sun as well)  is approaching an opposition to Uranus, which suggests that even though the Virgo Full Moon has the potential to bring us back down to earth, Uranus will apply more pressure on us to break free of restrictions and become liberated from our obligations.  Virgo’s cautious nature and respect for rules doesn’t respond well to the rulebreaking nature of Uranus, and this Full Moon could bring about some interesting inner turmoil especially since Mercury, Virgo’s traditional ruler, is opposed by Saturn and a celestial education is sure to be applied in some way.

This sort of oppositional tension can be balanced, but it often takes a great deal of attention and awareness to see where in our lives we need to find greater grounding into the material world (Virgo), and where we may have fallen into a rut and need to break free of old patterns (Sun/Uranus) to achieve true bliss (Pisces).

On the 20th the Sun enters Aries and the conjunction to Uranus culminates, so this fever for change will continue for a day or two after the Full Moon.  This Sun/Uranus conjunction is embedded in the chart of the Vernal Equinox and will be affecting us for the next few months, so be prepared for some bumpy roads ahead! I’ll be writing more on the Equinox in Sunday’s post.

    reat analysis on the astrological combos; it resonated very strongly for me. If you need me, Ill be house cleaning and running on the treadmill while I contemplate how I can spice up my daily routine while still honoring my responsibilities as continually working on my spiritual progression but recognizing the “now” of the present moment. 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration. <3

    Thanks all, good to see you Andrea.

    Aliha, sun signs are one of the least important significator in compatibility, the whole chart must be considered.
