Virgo Full Moon
With Mars squaring the Sun and Moon, you can expect this month’s full moon to bring any buried or long-standing resentments to a boiling point. Most of the time, such an event clears the air and after the dust settles, everyone knows where they stand, as well as the issues that need to be resolved.
Unfortunately, that’s not likely to be the case here, because Neptune is conjunct the Sun, opposite the Moon and square Mars. As a result, whatever conscious (Sun) and emotional (moon) clarity one would expect from the Virgo full moon is blurred by Neptune’s foggy influence. Add in the influence of Mars square the planet of imagination, and it can be easy to make a mountain out of a molehill and/or lose sight of the original issue.
Should a conflict arise in your life, your knee jerk reaction may be to mete out a strong dose of tough love. If so, you’re experiencing the lunar side (Virgo) of this full moon. On the other hand, if your knee jerk reaction is to accept all the blame, you’re experiencing the solar side of this full moon.
While every full moon focuses on a particular theme, it isn’t intended to be one-sided. Its purpose is to make us aware of a particular issue and if need be, bring it into balance in our lives.
In that respect, this full moon offers us the opportunity to master the lesson of balancing accountability (Virgo) with forgiveness (Pisces).
