March 18, 2022 • 3:18 AM EDT • 27°40′ Virgo
This month’s full moon is in Virgo, a logical, practical, detailed and at times skeptical sign that often exhibits an “I’ll believe it when I see it” attitude in life.
Since full moons occur when the moon and sun are in an exact opposition to each other, the intuitive, visionary, ambiguous and at times self-deceiving Pisces Sun directly is opposing it. But the Sun isn’t alone. Neptune is right there alongside it, and it’s encouraging the Sun to see the world through rose-colored glasses.
So what can you expect from this full moon?
Generally speaking, the opposition between the pragmatic moon and the idealistic Sun speaks to the need to achieve a healthy balance between doubt and faith. However, with the emphasis on Virgo, it speaks loudly to the need to discern facts from fiction, truth from lies and reality from illusion.
And on that note, there’s a very good chance that this full moon will bring a sobering reality about a situation, relationship or long-held belief, and because of Neptune’s influence, you could experience a sense of insecurity for not having seen it sooner.
The takeaway from the Virgo full moon is the need for greater scrutiny and objectivity in your life. If you heed its advice, its flowing trine to transformative Pluto promises that a sense of balance, healing and renewal will enter your life.
The house in your horoscope that holds this full moon is where the action is in your chart, and something related to one (or more) of the life areas ruled by it may come to light, to fruition or to an end. And in the case of this month’s Virgo full moon, it’s where it’s like to burst your bubble.
