“I am tired, beloved, of chafing my heart against the want of you; of squeezing it into little ink drops, and posting it. And I scald alone, here, under the fire of the great moon.” Amy Lowell

There is a Full Moon today at 28 degrees of “resourceful” Virgo (2:10 pm EDT). This lunation is actually a “Super Moon,” meaning that the Moon is at its closest point to Earth (perigee). The last time we had a “Super Moon” was almost two decades ago. This Full Moon will look much bigger in the sky, especially on the horizon, but the larger size is merely an optical illusion. It will, however, have reportedly greater impact on the tides. Perhaps also on our emotions.

Full Moons tend to bring about “full illumination.” With this Full Moon in logical, analytical Virgo, we have a pitting of the intellect (Virgo) against the emotional (Pisces) self, with the impressionable, imaginative Pisces Sun in opposition to this Moon. With oppositions, we need to find a balance between the two opposing forces. In this case, integrate the “head” (Virgo) with the “heart”(Pisces), the part of us that is more emotionally vulnerable.

Wherever the Virgo Full Moon falls in our personal horoscopes (the house), is the area of life where we may also need to do some extra scrutinizing or refinement (Virgo). Also, some elimination, as Full Moons are times of release. Virgo likes to systematically take things apart for study under a microscope.  This sign symbolically rules the intestines in the body which break down food substances into digestible particles. It could be the affairs of that part of our life where the Full Moon occurs need to be reviewed in “minute detail” with eye towards improvement. Virgo the Virgin, or “Maiden,” seeks purity or perfection. Likes to fix broken situations. Restore order.

Too, this Full Moon opposes “change-agent” Uranus in Aries, a planet associated with “sudden breakthroughs,” sort of a harmonious tie-in with the “revelatory nature” of a Full Moon. Especially this Full Moon in Virgo, a zodiacal sign which intrinsically tends to be more insightful.

Unpredictable Uranian energies are also more “highly charged” and with mutable Virgo, the sign of work, being more nervous and restless, we may want to make sure that we keep ourselves fully occupied now, both physically and mentally, and also try to just “go with the Uranian flow” of electrifying energies.  The Virgo Moon always wants to be productive. It also desires to be of service to others. Definitely an admirable trait.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Mohandas Gandhi

Additionally, the Full Moon forms an awkward quinqunx to “disguising” Neptune, the natural ruler of Pisces, so we may also have to be prepared to deal with or manage some more confusing or nebulous issues (Neptune) that could suddenly arise. The “astute” Virgo Moon with its incredible powers of perception will likely, however, be able to deftly help us “pierce the veil” of Neptunian illusion and dispel any fogginess.
