The Full Moon is at 28°28” Virgo at 2:10 pm ET. The Sabian symbols are: “A man gaining secret knowledge from a paper he is reading” for the Moon and “A prism” for the Sun. This is a dynamic combination. It shows the necessity of preparation before you launch a full expression of yourself.

A loved child is totally prepared to shine in her self-expression. She delights in being. But as she ages, she learns how to shield and store her inner light. By careful study and self-reflection, she becomes poised to share her light selectively.

The Virgo Full Moon encourages you to reflect on whatever you might presently have in motion and pay attention to the details of its expression. It might be time for adjustments so that your prism can catch the light and you can shine more brightly with less reticence.

NASA is calling this a super full moon, and astrologers call it a supermoon, because how close it is to the earth. I do not buy in to the doom hype personally, that warns this is unleashing an energy to panic about… but it is scratching a core of concern. It’s always a good idea to have safety discussions with your loved ones and in a Virgoan way, be prepared for situations that demand attention.

With all the tumult in our world, some people gather supplies in case of disaster. However, to stock an apartment with weeks worth of food can seem extreme compared to someone with a 4,000 square foot home. Some people send healing light to themselves and the planet. Some people do both. In our family, my husband just told his mother (home for 3 days after 10 weeks in rehab for a broken hip) that he would NOT take her to the supermarket on a busy Saturday. He will take her to the bench outside her apartment so she can savor spring. As I said, it’s a day to prepare in ways that make sense for your personal situation.

I awoke sending Reiki and meditating and I’ll be doing more on the exact full moon. Wherever you are, may its light fill you with the reflection you require.

The bottom line is full moons heighten emotion anyway, and this one has the extra emphasis of Uranus in line with the Aries Sun. It creates a trigger-happy tendency… so watch reactions.

Be sure to be somewhere you can observe this big beautiful moon!

The Moon is VOC* from 2:10 pm to 4:03 pm ET. When the moon enters Libra, be prepared for the potential of an emotional see-saw. This isn’t necessarily bad, unless you’ve planned to be two places (or with two dates) at the same time. Unexpected events flow best when you keep the lines of communication open.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course: Avoid signing contracts, investing in a big purchase or beginning new projects or important conversations. Perfect time for clearing away clutter, finishing up loose ends, meditating or following serendipity. The “mood” of the period will be colored by the sign it is in… in Virgo, it’s great for organizing, finessing a project or exercise routine and clearing out closets.
