Virgo Full Moon March 5: The Roar of the March Lion

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." Steve Jobs (1955-2011) founder of Apple Computer. 

"Life is divided into three terms - that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present, to live better in the future."
William Wordsworth (1770-1850) English Poet

Cosmic Gorillas in the Room
March unfolds...the last square between Uranus and Pluto, the Equinox and the first of four potent 2015 eclipses wait in the wings. That's a lot of mojo for one month. Yet here we are once again on the threshold of an intensely energetic month without any sense of what lurks on this cosmic stage. Can you hear the March Lion roaring???

Appropriately, the month begins with a Virgo Full Moon being the odd theme setter for the next 29 days (Full Moon sets the stage for the New Moon through July 2016). Virgo likes to be in control of circumstances. And despite the oddity of a Full Moon setting the tone for a lunation, the intensity of these times has blurred the lines of reality to such an extent that a shrug of the shoulders or "whatever" may now be your retort to the Universe's on-going paradoxical ways.

Virgo points to the exactness of life. Associated with the archetype of the Priest or Priestess and ruled by communicative Mercury, Virgo exudes a refined, specific quality expressing itself through
attentiveness to detail, discipline, perfection, analysis, aloofness, healthy choices, intelligence, service to others and loyalty. As the flip side of formless Pisces, Virgo examines and works with the specifics of life until it gets it "just right" (hint: it rarely is!).

So let's get Virgo specific about the Cosmic 411:

When: Full Moon arrives on Friday March 5th at 8:05 am in Hawaii, 10:05a on the West Coast, US, 1:05p on the US East Coast, 6:05 pm GMT, and on the 6th from central Russia east to the International Date Line.

Where: Moon positions at 15° Virgo, opposite the Sun and Chiron in Pisces.

Theme: Healing the wounds of the past while blazing new trails into the future. Preparing the stage for those to come. Sourcing a higher power within to externally effect substantive change. Here's an example of the evolving generational mindset now emerging...yes, the crystal children are in the house!

Here's the Full Moon Chart:

Synopsis: Uranus and Pluto, the Cosmic Gorillas in the room, continue to melt down old structures, spawn havoc, rebellion and chaos, and effect profound changes in how society functions and flows. This lunation offers you an opportunity to further embrace radical change, attune to and act on your heart's desires, heal the wounds of the past, and prepare yourself for a future of uncertainty and unforeseen opportunity.

Suggestions for this lunation:
Receive bodywork...take care of yourself
Reorganize your daily priorities
Clean your living space...even make a Feng Shui appointment!!!
Show compassion for those less fortunate in life
Dedicate yourself to renewed service for others
Create a new daily routine, ritual or practice
Create a greater focus about what is most important in your life

Recommended questions for reflection:
In what areas of my life can I show more compassion and understanding?
What events from the past call out to me for healing and completion?
How do I feel about the future and my role in the world?
What internal gifts of mine am I ready to share with the world?

The intensity exhibited throughout societies around the world stands in stark contrast to the common, everyday life of most individuals. Yet, it's the energy of many individuals that ultimately transform and reshape society. Uranus and Pluto now near their last of 8 squares on March 16. Uranus is the revolutionary, shock, kick down the door vibration...the cosmic sky lord; Pluto is the dark, foreboding force of death and rebirth taking us into the Underworld. These combined energies have been mirrored over the past 4 years by ISIS, police attacks on unarmed citizens, political wars, invasions of sovereign countries, Corporate maleficence and control, etc. etc. Equally, the weather systems over the past few years have demonstrated the natural worlds heightened force. Yet together, such intensity equally spawns massive changes in how societies function and evolve, as well as ushering in technological breakthroughs and a future of great opportunity and growth.

The beginning of the new season arrives on March 20th  (21st from Eastern Europe to the International Date Line) the day after the Pisces New Moon. This is quite symbolic of old doors emphatically closing (Pisces) and new doors rapidly opening (Aries). Part of an Aries surge that includes the South Lunar node and Uranus, Venus and Mars for some of March produce quite a bit of initiative for manifesting anew. That's the Aries nature of the fire elemental...whenever personal planets position in a fire sign, expect a surge of adrenalin to follow.

Lastly, the Moon opposes the Sun and Chiron at this lunation, imbuing the overall vibration with a stronger desire to heal the hurts imposed on each other, as well as reverse the environmental havoc wrought by humankind. Equally, Saturn in square to Neptune continues to flex its muscles, as the quest for truth fleshes out embellishments and inconsistent past statements from those held in high esteem or quite popular in society.

Collectively, these are strong headwinds that literally reshape civilizations. At this Virgo Full Moon, take time to honor the cycles of nature and the evolutionary tides of these shifting times. Remember, uncertainty and instability are the forces essential to effect a different conversation and approach to life. Children born under these vibrations will express these vibrations as they become the movers and shakers of massive societal shifts in their adult years.

As I wind down this phase of my astrological career (1 more update to go!), I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the many people who have expressed kindness and warm wishes for my future endeavors. Over the past 2 weeks, I have experienced many mixed emotions about the new steps I now take. Part of me says "don't change" while other parts say "change you must." Before me lies a vacuum ready to be filled with newly inspired creativity. To fuel these steps, I will visit Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Africa a month from now. Seems these massive waterfalls ought to be the perfect place to symbolically and enthusiastically infuse my creative channels for what's to come. Stay tuned....

Blessings to all
Sat Nam
