Each month, there are two lunar events worth noting in astrology– new moons and full moons. New moons – next one is in Pisces on March 17 – are times when new opportunities manifest themselves. Doors open. New chapters begin. New energy is born.
Full moons – today – generally mean harvest and also illuminate parts of our lives we don’t usually see – good parts, not so good parts, the moon doesn’t care. Sometimes people go a little nuts on full moons, which is why emergency rooms are generally so busy on these nights. But when a full moon spells harvest, there’s usually positive news of some kind.
So tonight, March 1, at 7:51 p.m. eastern, there will be a full moon in earth sign Virgo. As a sign, Virgo is a master of details with perfectionist tendencies, often sees nuances that others miss, can be very self-critical and overly analytical. But the sign also possesses such precision that when these qualities are applies to an artistic/creative venture, the results can be astonishing.
These qualities also make it easier to manifest your desires during a full moon in Virgo. Especially during this one. It forms a beneficial angle – trine, 120 degrees- to Saturn in Capricorn. Saturn doesn’t have the greatest reputation in astrology, but when you consider that it rules the physical world, we wouldn’t be here without it. It also rules foundations, tangible reality, responsibility, discipline, endurance. And, it helps to solidify your dreams. So, March 1 is a great for manifestation! Just be very clear in your own mind, within your owns emotions, what you hope to create.
This full moon is also opposed to Neptune in Pisces, so there can be emotional confusion or lack of information in a relationship or surrounding an event. So step out into nature with some good music on your phone and start walking! If the weather where you live isn’t conducive to being outside, then find a spot inside where you can curl up. Or go to a museum, a movie, get lost in a good book.
This full moon should be especially good for anyone with a Virgo sun, moon, or rising, and for Capricorns, Tauruses, and the water signs… possible exception there is Pisces. You air and fire signs – the rest of the zodiac – have Virgo somewhere in your charts. If you don’t have a birth chart, you can get one free here.
Take note of where Virgo – falls in your chart. The house where you find it will be impacted by this full moon.
