Happy Full Moon In Virgo AND Saturn Leaving Aquarius Thank God/Dess (Reference mass shootings, blizzards, earthquakes, ice storms etc) and moving into its new home of Pisces.
On March 7th, 2023 we have a Full Moon at 16° Virgo. Every Full Moon is an opportunity to integrate the energy of 2 opposite signs. At a Full Moon, the Moon and the Sun are opposite each other. Since we are in Pisces season (so the Sun is in Pisces), the Moon can only be in the opposite sign, Virgo. We can only reach the potential of a sign if we employ the qualities of the opposite sign. We can only birth Pisces qualities through Virgo. Pisces feel their way through the world. But when things get too “mushy” we need Virgo. Virgo brings order into chaos and comes with practical approaches to help us navigate through the sea of change.
Saturn is the planet of karma, past lives and lessons learned. What lessons are now in your life that are repeating? Saturn is sitting in Pisces for the next 3 years. Virgo is opposite Pisces and this full moon in this sign will make sure you know the lessons you should learn.
Full Moon In Virgo, Saturn In Pisces
Virgo’s solution to our never ending, existential Piscean crisis may be totally out of the box (Full Moon trine Uranus). But it will give us that extra push to move forward (Full Moon square Mars). Less than one hour after the Full Moon in Virgo, Saturn moves into Pisces. We know that change is inevitable. We can feel it in the air. A new chapter of our life is about to begin.
The Sabian symbol of the Full Moon in Virgo is “A Volcanic Eruption”. The Sabian symbol speaks about the importance of releasing the old, before inviting the new. With Saturn at 29° 59’ Aquarius, minutes away from ingressing into Pisces, the Full Moon in Virgo will remind us that change is an inevitable part of life.
To make space for the new, everything must be released. 100%.
Change is not easy. But real change only happens when we start from a zero state. That’s why sometimes we need something of the magnitude of a volcanic eruption. The old must be burned to ashes. Even if we have no idea yet where we’re headed towards. “Change” doesn’t necessarily mean you quit your job tomorrow and buy a one-way ticket to the Amazonian jungle. Change is not what we do. What we do is a reaction to change. Change always starts from within. Sometimes change is an epiphany around why we’ve been stuck in the same old pattern. Other times it’s a moment of clarity: “THIS is what’s actually happening”. And other times it’s a decision “I will no longer walk this path”.
At the Full Moon in Virgo, ask yourself: “Where is there an inevitable exodus in my life?”
Pisces…. a water sign, is the last constellation of the zodiac. It’s symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces’s attention between fantasy and reality. As the final sign, Pisces has absorbed every lesson — the joys and the pains, the hopes and the fears — learned by all of the other signs. This makes these fish the most psychic, empathetic, and compassionate creatures of the astrological wheel. With such immense sensitivity, Pisces can easily become swallowed by emotions and must remember to stay grounded in the material realm (appropriately, Pisces rules the feet).
Those with this sun sign must be wary of mirages: These impressionable fish prefer wearing rose-colored glasses to addressing problems, which can earn Pisces a reputation for being flaky or delusional. This water sign should remember that problems can’t be solved by swimming away. Willful ignorance never makes conflict disappear: It only gives it the chance to grow.
A mutable sign, Pisces effortlessly adapts to their surroundings. These visionary fish have unparalleled access to the collective unconscious through their clairvoyance and make incredible artists and creatives. Kind and gentle, they’re invigorated by shared experiences of music and romance. Any relationship with mystical Pisces is guaranteed to involve deep spiritual exploration.
The most important impact of Saturn in Pisces to highlight is the fact that Saturn is the Lord of Karma, while Pisces is the Zodiac sign that rules karma. This means the transit of Saturn in Pisces is going to be extremely karmic, just full of karmic energy, and we may have to dig into the karmic sludge and work through karmic baggage, old karmic patterns, and have a deeper understanding of our karmic lessons.
Pisces rules spirituality, so we can learn more lessons around our spiritual selves, and what it is we believe in spiritually. For some, this may mean ditching what you’ve thought you believed for a long time, and coming to the understanding that it was hollow and not true to who you really are. For others, this may mean becoming more invested in what you believe, if you feel it’s the right thing for you.
In general, we may be more practical in spiritual matters overall though, and may want to ground our spiritual energy.
Pisces is the sign of compassion and empathy, so Saturn in Pisces can force us to confront issues around this. Where we’ve lacked compassion and empathy can suffer greatly, and cause us to suffer as punishment. We have to learn this lesson, and develop a better emotional understanding of the plight of others. On the flip side, Pisces also rules boundaries, so those with too much compassion and empathy may have to learn the power of healthy boundaries. If you struggle with saying no, if you’re a doormat, if you’re always being taken advantage of, this can come back to bite you in a big way, and you have to learn how to protect yourself in a healthy way.
Pisces is ruler of the arts and imagination, so this is a highly creative sign, and Saturn in Pisces may push us to be more practical and productive with it. This would be excellent for anyone who already works in the arts or does something creative, and we may see more people flock to do this professionally. Pisces is the very last sign of the Zodiac, so we are at the end of a cycle. This can be a time of major endings, and we see many things from the past finally being resolved and coming to a close that have been building for some time.
