The Full Moon in Virgo on March 12th 2017 by Margaret Gray

‘Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.’ 
― Corrie ten BoomClippings from My Notebook

Key Planetary Energies today:

This Full Moon is part of a Tsquare opposing Chiron (2’) and Mercury in Pisces (5’) and squaring Saturn in Sagittarius (5’). It is also trine Pluto in Capricorn (3’) and exactly quincunx Uranus in Aries!

So how is this likely to affect us?

Individually:

Although Virgo is an Earth sign, it is the most analytical of the Earth signs in that it is ruled by Mercury. Virgo’s natural inclination is to dissect concepts, ideas and events in an attempt to understand the different components which led to the final result. Ultimately Virgo’s search for understanding is about self-improvement and the improvement of the collective. Hence individuals with strong Virgo in their chart often thrive in teaching roles. At its most expansive, this Full Moon can help us to understand more about our behaviours, thoughts and ideas, particularly in the two weeks leading up to the Full Moon. At its most limited it can find fault with everyone else to avoid the harshness of its own self-criticism and self-blame.

The opposition to the Sun/Chiron/Mercury stellium in Pisces reminds us of the important roles compassion and forgiveness play in healing. Ultimately all healing of ourselves and others comes from unconditional love, which by its nature counteracts the harsh critic within.

In the YouTube recording of Relationships and the Full Moon in Virgo by Armand Diaz and myself https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKZcAzXJ9Mg&feature=youtu.be we  mention the Hawaiian Ho’oponopono chant for forgiveness and reconciliation:

‘I love you,

I’m sorry,

please forgive me

and thank you’.

Grace comes from forgiveness, enabling us to heal ourselves and live a happier life. With forgiveness based on unconditional love, our beliefs can soften, allowing flexibility to take the place of rigid, limited immovable ideas. Hence space is created for new beginnings.

You are more likely to resonate with these themes if your Sun, Moon and/or Angles are between 21’ and 27’ Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius, Aries and/or Capricorn

This is an ideal time to:

  1. Spend some time alone in quiet contemplation
  2. Use journaling to process thoughts and feelings to do with past and current relationships
  3. Review health and body care – food, exercise, rest, relaxation, fun…
  4. Enjoy some physical pampering
  5. Engage in some forgiveness practice, followed by an energetic clearing
  6. Spend some time in nature to ground in the here and now!

In Relationships:
This Full Moon is very relevant to relationships particularly with Venus currently Retrograde in Aries. Feel free to check out the latest recording from ‘Relationships and Astrology’ with Armand Diaz and myself at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKZcAzXJ9Mg&feature=youtu.be

Welcome to Jupiter in Libra! Sept 9th 2016 – Oct 10th 2017

The ingredients of both darkness and light are equally present in all of us,…The madness of this planet is largely a result of the human being’s difficulty in coming to virtuous balance with himself ― Elizabeth Gilbert

This expansive planet’s last visit through this Air Sign was from Sept 26th 2004 – Oct 26th 2005. (Jupiter has an 11.6 year cycle). It’s well worth thinking back to what you experienced in 2005, as this new transit offers an opportunity to revisit and continue some of the unfinished themes that may have arisen in your life at that time.

Core Jupiter in Libra Themes:

Individually:

Jupiter by nature expands the nature of whatever Zodiac Sign he is in. Hence his visit in Libra is likely to highlight dualities and polarities in our life so that we can bring them into greater balance. images-2The particular arena of our life where this will occur depends on which part of your chart Jupiter is currently travelling through.
Both Jupiter and Libra are natural seekers of justice and equality, hence this will be an excellent time to work on issues that have felt unjust in your life. Jupiter in Libra also reminds us that there are consequences to our choices and this is an ideal time to get a clearer understanding of the consequences of some of the choices we have made in our life. Overall our main learning with this transit will occur through our relationships as we learn new balanced ways to connect, cooperate and compromise.equality-1245578_640

3 Main things to notice in your Birth Chart:

  1. Which House in your Chart is Libra in?
  2. Do you have Planets in Libra or Aries that Jupiter will aspect by conjunction or opposition over the year and on what dates will this happen?
  3. Are any of your Angles in Libra?

In Relationships

Without a doubt our greatest learning in this lifetime is through relationships – initially with our family and later with friends, colleagues, significant others etc. The Libra/Aries axis is the axis of ‘self’ and ‘other’ and as Jupiter travels through Libra we are invited to assess how we relate to everyone on a daily basis. Who are we surrounded by? Why do we surround ourselves with these individuals and communities? What are we seeking to balance or reflect in ourselves? What are we learning through these relationships and/or brief encounters? Are these relationships balanced? Are they fair?14291855_1354312897920000_181995381591821502_n

As Jupiter squares Pluto in Capricorn over the year, (see the dates below), we will be invited to release ways of relating that no longer work for us and that are not based on equality, cooperation and compromise. The Jupiter opposition to Uranus in Aries will challenge us to maintain our individuality, whilst enjoying being in relationship. At its most limited Jupiter can express itself through grandiosity, inflation, egocentrism entitlement and narcissism. If these patterns are present in relationships, they are likely to be highlighted over the coming year, enabling us to make clearer choices.

Jupiter is also about joy and this year invites us to expand the ‘joyful’ aspects of our relationships.

Important dates to keep in mind on a Personal and Collective level when the above themes will be highlighted – (I will post more about these on the actual dates):

  • Nov 21st – Nov 27th: Jupiter will square Pluto in Capricorn (15’)
  • Dec 23rd – Dec 30th: Jupiter will oppose and hence expand Uranus Rx in Aries (20’)
  • Feb 6th – June 9th 2017: Jupiter will be Retrograde in Libra
  • Feb 27th – March 5th 2017: Jupiter Rx will oppose Uranus in Aries (22’)
  • March 25th – april 2nd Jupiter Rx square Pluto in Capricorn (19’)
  • Au 2nd – aug 8th: Jupiter square Pluto Rx in Capricorn (17’)
  • Sept 27th – Oct 1st: Jupiter will oppose Uranus Rx in Aries (last time) (27’)

Although this transit will be felt by all of us, if your Sun, Moon and/or Angles of your chart are in Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn you are more likely to resonate with the main themes of this Transit.

My last quote comes from Gloria Steinem who describes the Libra art of cooperation beautifully: ‘Instead of either/or, I discovered a whole world of and’.
