The Full Moon in Virgo is on Monday February 22 at 1:20 PM EST. The Eclipse Season has already been bringing in winds of change.
This Full Moon, however, pushes the winds even stronger; and then in two more weeks, on March 8, there is the first of two Eclipses: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces.
The power of transformation is getting stronger and stronger now, breaking down centers of moderation and control.
You can see this happening politcally as candiates like Trump and Sanders are doing well. They are not members of the moderate wing of their parties, each instead speaking with a strong voice that does not much care about being cautious or restrained.
For any kind of true transformation to take place, that which holds things together must be broken down, so real change can move through without much obstruction or obstacles.
In the late ’60s and ’70s there was great transformation moving through our collective and individual consciousness, as well as through our world. The center was breaking down, in th eworld and in each one of us.
Uranus conjunct Pluto triggered that revolution; now Uranus square Pluto has been triggering this one.
Like the ’60s, people are tired of doing “business as usual” in a corrupt world, trying to keep privilege and wealth in the same hands over and over again.
Like in the ’60s, people are tired of secret and lies, and other attempts to continue programming people to be robots or even slaves to those who remain in control and in power.
As our lives continue to come apart at the seams of our old paradigm, allow your self to be more flexible, not fighting change, and instead trusting it to be happening for a reason, with meaning.
I realize that is easier to do when change is happening because of the birth of a baby, or a new and obviously better job, or moving to a better home; but divorces, and even deaths happen so we can move forward into new phases or seasons of our lives.
And now as we move through a Full Moon in Virgo on the way to our first of two eclipses, we are definitely in transition between phases or chapters of our lives.
So many people I talk with or work with now are in transition, letting go of what is passing, and opening up to what is right for them now.
And yes for many there are decisions to make as they move through their transition: decisions that will affect the quality of the new chapter of their lives.
But can we choose whether we will go through to a new chapter or not? Do we have that kind of control of our lives and fates?
Well sometimes it is obvious we cannot, like when someone leaves us or dies, or when we are fired from a job or evicted from a home.
But how about if we choose to cheat on our spouse or choose to move to a new home or leave our job on our own?
What if we choose to not cheat or not move or not leave the job?
If we chose to cheat, we are already unsatisfied with our current relationship. And if we leave a home or job, we are similarly unhappy.
So we could choose to stay unsatisfied, could we not? And if we did, would we be choosing to not move forward into a new phase of our lives?
No actually each above example represents a turning point in our lives as we sense we are needing to make choices.
If we move on from our status quo, we are obviously entering a new chapter of our lives.
But if we choose to stay, we are entering a new phase of life too. Staying showed we were more certainly commiting to our previously chosen life.
Inside ourselves we know we have entered a new chapter, one based on security and stability. We have passed our chance to move into something new and perhaps better.
We have sunken more deeply into our lives, precluding any big chosen changes for likely an extended period of time.
If our choice was out of alignment with the Universe’s higher destiny for us, then we will lose our opportunity for perhaps all our life to ride that destiny.
But we will gain a sense of safety and predictability.
Now such choices may be at yoru doorstep. How do you want to move through this transitionary time on Planet Earth for the human race?
What potential changes are opportunities for greater satisfacion, personal evolution, and greater connection to our authentic Self and the Universe?
And what potential changes are just temptations to leave our chosen path and to be distracted from our true potential and destiny.
March and April open a Portal into an acceleration through these times of transition into the Age of Aquarius. Trust your heart, but use your head. That marriage between heart and head is so important now.
This week at the Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo on Monday we move through a relatively gentle full moon.
And with all the intensity now, that will be welcomed by many.
But keep in mind that although this Full Moon is rather gentle, we are also in the first winds of the Eclipse Season.
Change is moving through no matter what.
This Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo strongly suggests we let go, surrender to the Universe and the process of transformation.
It is not aligned now to have too strong an agenda or too much contol.
Choose to not only let go, but to be of service. Let go another notch of ego now, and allow your Higher Self to show the way.
Pisces is rather pure energetically, being sensitive to emotions and feelings that are toxic or even overly intense. Virgo is rather pure physically, sensitive to environmental toxins and germs that may be around. It will not tolerate well anything that harms the body.
So as you let go you will feel these senstivities even more. Let your self be removed from toxic environments, psychologically, spiritually, mentally, or physically. It is OK to take care of your self.
Next passage after this Full Moon will be at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8. We will have much to say about that in the next few weeks.
