This Full SUPER Moon event occurs at the 0 degree mark in the sign of Virgo, so it brings with it a vibration of renewal. While Full Moon’s are generally illuminating, revealing and releasing…. this one (and next month’s Full Moon in Libra, also happening at the 0 degree mark) brings on an extra burst of NEW energy, too.
This FULL SUPERMOON’s Soundtrack: Delicate by Taylor Swift [Music Video]
The Challenge: criticism, negative self-chatter, worry, micro-managing tendencies or pressure/effects, missing the details or over-looking important features or the fine-print, naivete, jealousy, finicky or picky — too focused on details that don’t really matter, pettiness, gossip, meddling or chatter that disrupts natural maturation of goodness resulting in a ‘spoiling’ of circumstances that ruins what is best left alone or untouched (this could alter actual results), vulnerable to poisoning or toxicity
The Breakthrough/Potential Wisdom: release what’s not working or worthwhile in the long run, focus , knowing what to leave untouched, understanding particular needs appropriate to natural cycles, efficiency, productivity, tuning into natural rhythms and nature itself/working in communion with natural processes, natural instincts - especially when applied to material concerns like finances, organization or production, the benefits of caution and patience - good things come to those who wait, humility, smart moves and even strategic victories, grounded, inner-security/rooted in and supported by the physical realm in a sustainable manner, holistic healing/healthy improvement, satisfactory evidence in a situation that brings resolution
With this Full Moon in Virgo (Decan I) aligned with the 8 of Disks, we can get more rooted and secure when we know what we’re working for. An extra dose of patience is on tap, when we know it will be worth the wait and our efforts will pay off in the end — even if we can’t yet see when that end will be. This vibe also helps us get clear on what’s actually worth our attention and what’s just so not anymore.
We may feel a bit more flexible when it comes to letting some things that are unnecessary fall by the wayside. Our focus can turn toward what actually deserves our attention; as it shows us signs of progress or feels most promising in the moment. (Feels being the operative word here. Logic may not have all the answers you need at this time.)
It’s also an indication of investments paying off in the end. Prime time for at least setting something aside for the future and leaving it alone — letting time work it’s magic. Like fine wine aging or financial investments, like retirement accounts, some things are just better after time has passed and require little to no effort once properly set up.
(It’s the benefit of time itself; the time it takes for things to grow or multiply, naturally, producing dividends. This also applies to healing… the peace we begin to feel only after some time has passed.)
On the card is an image of a tree growing tall and flowering. Every organic gardener knows that if the soil is nutrient-rich, the plant well-cared for and protected, then it builds a natural immunity to pests and as it grows will produce abundant fruit with little effort.
This Full phase of the Moon completes a cycle that began last September, with the New Moon in Virgo. Think back to what you started then, or set in motion. If you’ve been setting New Moon intentions, now’s the time to take stock and look back at what you intended back in September.
Make the time to secure your bounty, or at the very least tighten up the preparations for what you feel will be needed in the future, before the next New Moon (in Pisces) in early March, when we can expect some ground-breaking events that make us think twice. Things may be extra confusing next month, when dramatic changes cause us to reflect and rely ever more on our intuition and psychic abilities. [New Moon + Uranus moves into Taurus + Mercury stations Retrograde all on the same day!] We won’t have this kind of access to the clearly analytical-mindedness of Virgo then.
This phase, as represented by the 8 of Disks, is a delicate stage of development in the grand scheme of things. While we may see signs of progress, the process is not yet complete. It’s not time to harvest - it’s time to protect the future harvest and ensure the results will be optimal in the end.
Just as flower petals are a beautiful sign that fruit is on it’s way, it’s best not to touch the delicate petals. If we tamper with them, we risk sacrificing the end result (material gains/abundance) for a split second of pleasure. Resist the urge to fix things that are best left to Mother Nature, especially those things that are new and just beginning to emerge — like a new relationship or a recent investment.
Patience is vital now. It needs time to mature. This also applies to some things we may notice going sour…. sometimes what’s not beneficial will dismantle of it’s own accord without any interference on our part. It’s best to listen to your intuition when it comes to knowing when to keep your mouth shut or hands off and let karma take it’s natural course.
Keep It Neat and Tidy
With Virgo’s clean moonbeams, it is a good time to remove excesses to better your chances of prosperity and abundance come harvest time.
I have a wild raspberry patch in my backyard. In the early springtime, I prune the canes, carefully removing the excess to ensure a bountiful berry harvest in the growing season. It requires that keen Virgo-eye, though. If I cut back too many canes, or fail to remove the old and dead wood, the harvest is lousy. But if I don’t clear away enough of the raspberry canes, it quickly becomes overgrown and the berries are difficult to reach in the tangled mess, limiting the berry-bounty. It’s a surgical process under the influence of Virgo moonbeams.
The load can be lightened in a way that produces a better, cleaner outcome. Not a time to get carried away with any details that don’t matter, though. Any effort applied must be meticulous, as to not disrupt the delicate balance that has potential to produce a high yield. Make sure you clean up what needs cleaning up and nothing more.
