The Virgo Full Moon occurs at 1:05 p.m. ET.

Before that time you may feel as though you’re on a bucking bronco; only adaptability keeps you on the horse. Pay attention to the details of your experience, no matter how minute. Don’t neglect diet or exercise.

Shortcuts in execution do not reap rewards; resist the temptation to cut corners and never do so at the cost of integrity.

handkerchiefThe Sabian Symbol** for this Virgo Full Moon is “A Fine Lace Handkerchief, Heirloom From Valorous Ancestors”. This sets up a curious combination of images; one, the lace handkerchief associated with a genteel existence, yet the delicate object is from a courageous lineage.

It is an apt picture for the strength of Virgo. The details in small things allow greater execution of big concepts. One may mistake an appreciation of etiquette or formalities as being a weakness or distraction from more valiant efforts.

The power of this Virgo energy emphasizes the strength in a routine or ritual, which may have a secretive edge to it. Consider the use of handkerchiefs in a distant past: women actually used them to signal potential lovers of feelings they were not allowed to articulate.

Perhaps the most famous handkerchief depicted is from Shakespeare’s Othello. Had he been as thoughtful as he was passionate, Othello may not have been steered into his famous tragedy. This picture is linked to the moon sign, so it gives a clue as to the emotional investment needed to carry out the vision. The Virgo Full Moon reminds us to treasure the little things in order to carry on with the big goals. It also reminds us that to protect the things we love requires courage.

The Sabian Symbol** for this Pisces Sun is “An Officer Instructing His Men Before A Simulated Assault Under A Barrage Of Live Shells”. Pisces is the sign linked to dream fulfillment, yet this image projects the theater of war. It is imperative for the warrior to test in environments that emulate conflict or changes of survival in real combat are slim. It is also possible that someone can be injured or killed during the simulation; these are high-stakes situations.

Since this Full Moon has strong connections with Pluto, it is not surprising that the Sabian Symbols** conjure valor and assaults. Pluto brings intensity. It’s geometric connections to this Virgo Full Moon suggest that this is not a time to avoid an offer or pass the buck.

Step up to this Virgo Full Moon energy with a commitment to yourself. Make it something that you are willing to fight for and know that it is in your blood to succeed. Close your eyes, picture the achieved outcome and go for it.

The moon goes void-of-course/voc* at 1:36 p.m. ET. There may be a “short-circuit” that occurs mid-afternoon if something you want does not align with something you need; this is temporary so don’t let the feelings domin..ate the day.

Once the Sun has set, it makes a picture in the sky with Pluto, which encourages focus of will. This can be highly stimulating for a project already in motion, but may be frustrating if you can’t get the wheels in motion. If you feel a bit thwarted, or even if you don’t, it’s wonderful to have a release, so exercise, dance and get physical.

*in Virgo, the void-of-course is great for organizing, finessing a project or exercise routine and clearing out closets. What is something seemingly insignificant that you’d like to make time to do? This may be the perfect time for it.
** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
