Be sure to check your February prediction in the masthead for more details on this full moon.
On February 19, we have a full moon in Virgo, at 00 degrees. Full moons are about culmination, harvest, and Virgo is the sign of the perfectionist, the master of details. There are several things that intrigue me about this full moon.
It forms a beautiful trine (120 degrees) with Mars in fellow earth sign Taurus, which suggests a kind of relentless and steadfast movement toward a goal. Mars represents our physicality, sexuality, ambition, and in Taurus, it simply keeps moving forward, knocking down obstacles like – well, Ferdinand the bull in the children’s story.
It forms that same beautiful angle to the cusp of the 8th house, which governs mundane stuff like taxes, insurance, mortgages. That house also rules the paranormal, life after death, communication with the dead, reincarnation.
For earth signs – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn – this should be a beneficial full moon, even if it may feature a tad of the nuttiness you often see during any full moon. For fire signs – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius – it could feel like one of those days when everyone around you is nitpicking about something and you could care less. After all, you’ve got Jupiter in fellow fire sign Sagittarius right now, and that means Let’s have fun!
Water signs Scorpio and Cancer will feel the benefits of this full moon, which forms a beneficial angle to your sun sign that facilitates an easy exchange of energy. Pisces, though, may feel the brunt of this full moon because it’s opposite your sun sign. Before you even leave your home on the 19th, sit quietly for a few minutes and gather positive thoughts around yourself.
Air signs – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius – is represented in this chart only in the Gemini ascendant at 5 degrees. The moon will square your sign, so it’s best to start the day the same way that Pisces should.
That said, there’s a big shift on the 19th for the asteroid Chiron, known as the wounded healer. Chiron stays in a sign from a year to 8 years, and takes about 50 years to circle the zodiac. It remains the longest in Pisces and in Aries, where it will be from now until 2027. However, it made a brief entrance into Aries last spring – April – and remained there until it retrograde back into Pisces in late September 2018. So, look back to what was going on in your life then. It may provide clues about what you’ll experience now.
