Full Snow Moon in Virgo: the Journey of Devotion

On February 27, 03:17 AM ET, we witness an enchanting Full Moon, happening at 8°57’ of the sign of Virgo.

Full Moons take place when the Sun and the Moon form a 180°angle, technically known as an opposition, and the Sun’s rays completely illuminate the side of the Moon facing the Earth. The Moon in Virgo is now opposing the Sun in Pisces, and their alignment brings things to completion, promoting clarity and understanding.

Full Moons are the peak and blossoming of the lunar cycle: they are meant to be a moment of celebration and culmination. As we witness the maturation of our efforts and intentions, we are encouraged to honor the progress we made throughout the first half of the lunar cycle and to enjoy the results of our work.

The Full Moon we experience in February is also known as the Snow Moon, due to the snowstorms that tend to be common at this time of the year in most of the Northern and Eastern parts of the United States.

To celebrate the arrival of this Full Snow Moon in Virgo, on Ferbuary 27 at 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live Full Snow Moon in Virgo Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

Virgo: Discernment, Discrimination, and Healthy Habits

 

Virgo is an Earth, Mutable, Yin archetype. Ruled by the Yin side of Mercury, directed inwards towards critical thinking and self-analysis, Virgo corresponds to the season of harvesting: the process of separating the weeds from the wheat symbolizes our capacity to discriminate, to discern what is useful and what is not. Similarly, the Full Moon in Virgo invites us to choose carefully how we invest our energy and focus and to be mindful of how we manage the power of our attention.

As an Earth sign, Virgo has a strong correlation with physicality and earthly matters. In particular, it is associated with our desire to understand how our body works in order to maximize our health and wellbeing. Through Virgo, we establish and maintain healthy habits, we cultivate a positive relationship with our body and our health, and we choose every day to love and respect ourselves by paying attention to what we consume and intake, not only in terms of food, but also in terms of information, energies, and emotions.

This Full Moon may reveal to us those habits and routines that are supporting our wellbeing, and the ones that are not. As we gain more clarity and understanding of ourselves and our reality, we are encouraged to make conscious daily choices from a place of self-awareness and self-love.

 

Virgo vs Pisces: Balancing Logic and Intuition, Abstract Reasoning and Rationality

 

The opposition between the Moon in Virgo and the Sun in Pisces, widely conjunct Venus, is highlighting the necessity to find a balance between logic and intuition, order and chaos, rationality and abstract reasoning, left and right brain.

While Virgo is inclined towards practicality, effectiveness, planning, and organization, Pisces tends to go with the flow, embracing what comes up and trusting the Universe. Yet, there needs to be a balance between the two: an excess towards any end of a spectrum is never healthy or sustainable in the long run.

While Pisces teaches us to surrender and accept that we can’t control everything, Virgo teaches us that a good, practical strategy must follow any intention setting. Virgo reminds us that we need to put in the daily work needed if we want our dreams to come true, that we need to commit to an ongoing process of self-improvement and refinement of our skills if we want to feel fulfilled, offer value to humanity, and make the world a better place.

The Full Moon in Virgo opposing the Sun in Pisces is an invitation to balance these polarities: to dream big and cultivate faith in the natural unfolding of things, while we keep striving to get better and we engage in self-analysis to become aware of what we need to improve, yet without beating ourselves up for our imperfection.

 

Embracing the Beauty and the Imperfection of the Physical Dimension

 

The Virgo-Pisces polarity has a lot to do with the need to reconcile the physical and the spiritual planes. While Pisces is about trying to transcend the physical dimension by cultivating a connection with Spirit, other realms, and a Higher Power, Virgo is about honoring and embracing the physical, including our bodily experiences and limitations. Through Virgo, we learn to perceive our body as a gateway to the discovery of timeless truths, rather than as something dirty or impure that needs to be fixed or hidden.

Virgo is often associated with excessive perfectionism leading to constant feelings of self-doubt and cyclical crises. These are stemming from the awareness that everything can be better and that there’s always something more that could be done. Pisces reminds us that we are where we need to be, that we are already perfect and complete. A dynamic balance can be found in being committed to ongoing self-improvement without beating ourselves up for not measuring up to an ideal standard of perfection that is unnatural and unattainable.

Full Snow Moon in Virgo trine Uranus: Embodying our Genius & Being Originally Practical

 

The trine between the Full Moon and Uranus increases our desire for novelty and new experiences. The trine is a 120° angle representing easy flow and understanding between two celestial bodies. When two planets are connected by a trine they support each other’s function, their qualities blend and they work together easily. However, we need to actively make an effort to channel their energies towards a concrete purpose, as this aspect doesn’t force us into action, but only suggests it.

Archetypally, Uranus longs to break free from stagnation and repetition, while the Moon tends to stick to familiar habits and ways of living. However, the current harmonic alignment between Uranus in Taurus and the Full Moon in Virgo facilitates the integration of the changes that have been taking place: it eases the process of moving away from old routines and establishing new ones.

This planetary configuration supports our efforts to embrace our uniqueness and to be ourselves fully without worrying about other people’s opinions of us. The Earth trine between the Moon and Uranus promotes original practicality and facilitates the embodiment of our genius through the establishment of consistent habits.

 

Mercury trine North Node: Broadening Our Mental Horizons

 

Mercury is the planetary ruler of Virgo: its condition and the aspects it makes will give us more in-depth insights into the energetic quality of this Full Moon. Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods, has recently stationed direct in Aquarius and formed an exact conjunction with Jupiter on February 14. Mercury is still conjunct both Jupiter and Saturn and is creating a trine to the North Node in Gemini.

Mercury is also the planetary ruler of the North Node, the point in space symbolizing our collective karmic path. The planet of communication, logic, learning, and critical thinking represents a supportive influence for our movement towards our evolutionary direction. Mercury in Aquarius conjunct Jupiter and trine the North Node promotes the broadening of our mental horizons, increasing our willingness and desire to commit to an ongoing learning process, both intellectual and experiential.

The Full Moon in Virgo reminds us to embrace whatever experience we encounter on our path and consider it as a learning opportunity. Mercury in Aquarius supports the objective observation of our circumstances and possibilities, allowing us to adopt a detached bird’s eye view of our reality. This can help us reach a better understanding of what shows up for us during these days.

 

Full Snow Moon in Virgo: the Journey of Devotion

 

As mentioned previously, Virgo is about discriminating the information we take in, selecting what we want to pay attention to and invest energy in at any given moment, and filtering out what is not relevant. This celestial alignment is inviting us to apply our knowledge and expertise in ways that are practical and useful, to be able to serve the collective while feeling fulfilled and inspired on a personal level.

The Full Moon in Virgo is reminding us to honor our progress while inviting us to keep striving to become the best version of ourselves we can be. Virgo inspires us to make the most out of any challenge, to keep getting better, and to commit to seeing obstacles as stepping stones for deeper levels of self-mastery and self-knowledge. We are now encouraged to make decisions from a grounded place, as we have the chance to achieve a clearer understanding of reality and of why we have ended up where we are at.

Full Snow Moon in Virgo

The Virgo Full Moon opposing the Sun in Pisces inspires us to see the sacredness and the beauty in the human experience and to find sparks of the divine in our ordinary and mundane lives. This cosmic event invites us to embark on the path of devotion and to experiment with what happens when we consciously adopt a devotional attitude towards our daily tasks and chores. When we see our worldly commitments and duties as a chance to cultivate mindfulness and be in the present rather than a burden or an impediment, new opportunities and possibilities open up, and we naturally become more receptive to magic and grace.

Snow Moon – The First Super Full Moon of 2020 in a sign of Leo, February 9th

On February 9, we will experience a passion-filled Full Moon in the sign of Leo. This Full Moon is one that will bring about heightened energy and courage and give us the initiative and strength to chase our greatest desires.

This is the first of two Super Moons we will experience this year and will reach its peak at 2:33am EST. Super Moons occur when the Full Moon is closest to the Earth as it moves about its elliptical orbit, making them appear up to 30% brighter and larger than usual. This incredibly luminous Super Moon will see us experience more heightened energy and vibrations as we are showered in radiant moonlight. This Full Moon was originally named the Snow Moon by Native American tribes because of February’s winter and snow-filled weather.

 

Super-charged energy portal that will ignite a fire in our souls

 

Leo is ruled by the Sun so anytime that we have a Full Moon in Leo, we experience a super-charged energy portal that shines a divine light down on those things in our lives that feel heavy and dark. This Leo Full Moon will ignite a fire in our souls and allow us to connect with our inner Sun, clearing away anything that seeks to dim our inner flame.

We are reminded that life is made to be experienced, not controlled. The Universe will help us feel more connected than ever before to our true life’s path. We are asked to take some time for self-reflection. What brings you a sense of purpose? What sets your soul on fire and fans your inner flame? We will be showered with the divine clarity to clear away anything that separates you from your purpose and fails to bring peace within your life.

This is an incredibly strengthening and motivating Moon filled with incredible restorative energy. We will feel more connected to the present than ever before as we tune into the Full Moon’s energy and infuse it with our own. We are being supported in letting go of that which no longer serves us and that which seeks to weigh heavy on our soul.

This Full Moon relates back to the Lionsgate portal we experienced in August 2019 and we may find ourselves revisiting themes that arose during this time or harvesting the seeds that were planted during this time. As we push past old fears and barriers, we usher in a time of tremendous breakthroughs. 

 

Sun opposite the Moon

 

With the Sun opposite the Moon, our relationships will come into clearer focus in the next few weeks. We will naturally put our attention towards our relationship dynamics and intuitively realize what is causing disharmony. Our emotions are at their highest during a Full Moon which can sometimes cause tension between our inner and outer selves and can sometimes feel draining.

However, it’s important to use this moment of increased subconscious awareness and connection to self to look at your relationship from an outside, balanced, and impartial perspective. The Universe is providing us with the clarity to see our circumstances and the power to make the necessary changes to create more harmony in our lives. 

 

Full Moon trine Mars – awaken to your divine inner light

 

This emphasis on creating harmony is furthered with the Full Moon trine Mars. Mars is the planet of motivation. It blesses us with the courage and motivation to move from a follower to a leader, allowing us to make the first move and take the lead. Your intuition is at its peak as your instincts kick in, you realize exactly what it is you want to accomplish, and you see a clear path on how to get there.

If you are a normally shy person, prepare to unleash your inner passions as you naturally become more assertive. Don’t be afraid to speak out. You are being wholeheartedly supported by Mars as the entire Universe stands by your side. Continue to move forward with honesty and sincerity, pushing past the fears that seek to dim your inner light. Mars becomes a motivational speaker standing firmly by our side. It offers us the support and motivation to move forward with confidence.

The projects that we start during this Full Moon will blossom into something truly beautiful. Mars allows us to acknowledge the fears that have been holding us back, the pains that we have been carrying, and the things we have tried to avoid resolving. It creates a space for change, for progress. Allow yourself to shift, releasing those things that rest heavy on your spirit. Feel your body, mind, heart, and soul lighten as you awaken to your divine inner light.

 

With the Full Moon quincunx Neptune, our emotions are heightened further

 

As Mars and Neptune both increase our emotional sensitivity, we may feel conflicting emotions that can stir up confusion and tension. The lesson here is balance. If you feel tensions rising, take a step back. Become at peace with your situation and circumstances.

Find the balance within your life as notice the positive shift that this conjures. Find the balance between service and sacrifice and emotional sensitivity and emotional outbursts. By having trust and faith in yourself, those around you, and the Universe, you create a foundation of pure love.

 

Ras Elased Australis and Ursa Major alignments

 

The two major fixed star alignments that will come into play during this Full Moon are the fixed star Ras Elased Australis and Ursa Major. Both of these stars will act as the planet Mars does and help to further reinforce the alignment of this Full Moon trine Mars.

Ras Elased Australis at 20 degrees Leo showers us in bold energy and a heightened power of expression. It allows us to look at our situations carefully before deciding to forge ahead. However, once a decision has been made, our journey down our life’s path will be divinely powerful as we let no challenges stand in our way.

Ursa Major will bless us with the gift of patience. As Mars ignites the fire within us, Ursa Major gives us the self-control we need to find balance.

 

This Leo Full Moon is one filled with courage, strength, and initiative

 

We are being encouraged by the Universe to let go of past fears as we move forward with passion. We are showered with the confidence to act boldly but are reminded that any action must not be done out of selfishness. This Full Moon is all about balance. By finding the balance between emotional sensitivity and pure bravado, we find harmony within ourselves and unleash our innate power. The Universe is reaffirming that it is this balance within ourselves that is the key to having our greatest desires fulfilled and the key to manifesting our wildest dreams.

We are being taught to always move from the heart. Our heart is our soul, it is our inner truth and our most powerful tool. By liberating our hearts from the self-imposed shackles, we have created, we give ourselves permission to try, fail, learn, and evolve. Vulnerability is not weakness; vulnerability is power. Allow yourself to be vulnerable, even in the face of fear.

You are never alone in anything you face and will always find yourself supported by the Universe. It is by looking fear in the eye and saying “not today” that we see our biggest and most incredible growth. It is this shift in mindset that helps us find our inner strength and confidence, helps us to break free of our chains, and allows us to level up on our journey.

This is a Full Moon dedicated to standing in our power. This is the time to walk in alignment with our highest calling and connect with our Higher selves. Leo is a sign ruled by the Sun. It is time to connect with our own inner suns and the core of who we truly are. The core of our being is our ultimate reality and this Full Moon is here to show us our divine truth.

To support you along your journey and to help you harness the energy that this powerful Super Full Moon is bringing in, we have created a guided meditation and a full Moon journal.

For those that feel overwhelmed with mind-chatter, self-doubt, and uncertainty, these self-care tools were channeled to assist you in discovering the peace and clarity that this incredible Full Moon is inviting you to experience. Tap here or on the image below to learn more 🙂
