‘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 Boom, Clippings 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?
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,
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:
- Spend some time alone in quiet contemplation
- Use journaling to process thoughts and feelings to do with past and current relationships
- Review health and body care – food, exercise, rest, relaxation, fun…
- Enjoy some physical pampering
- Engage in some forgiveness practice, followed by an energetic clearing
- Spend some time in nature to ground in the here and now!
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
