Getting Down To The Real Nitty Gritty

This Full Moon in Virgo, directly following Venus going retrograde* and with Mercury square Saturn, could be thought of as a period of deep personal healing. We have the ability to look within and deal with our firmly seated beliefs that may be holding us back, but first we must jump the hurdle of this Moon's difficult position. Virgo is the archetypical nurse figure, taking care of the universe. This lunation, however, the nurse must heal within before healing without. The buildup of resentment is real - has anyone taken the time to repay Virgo's charity & dutiful attentions? On the other hand, patients may not have asked for the ‘medicine’ at all, and in frustration are apt to throw it all back in the Virgo Full Moon’s face. Quite the conundrum, isn't it?
Our friends at Mystic say, "Mercury square Saturn is a test to think your way out of the box. These are tough aspects yet we can make them work by being willing to be open to suggestions from our intuition as Mercury is in Pisces. The highly efficient Virgo Full Moon is saying that we need to get down to the nitty gritty if we want to achieve our dreams (Sun in Pisces). Virgo sometimes wants to shy away into the background but right now it’s important that we step up to the plate. Let others see your work. This Full Moon it’s about having the confidence to show what you can do. Learn to control those fearful lions that tear at the meat of your courage."
Getting our courage back is key at this Full Moon, and using it for a good cause is crucial. Perhaps this is a cosmic push for us to speak truth to power, yes? For those of you who are following politics, know that this Full Moon has the pathological need to shock and outrage, so don't be surprised if this plays out on the political stage. However, the upside is that we also have the opportunity to rise and achieve personal enlightenment and awakening. There is also the promise of being freed from the bondage of imprisoning mindsets. Sounds good to me!
*Venus is in retrograde from March 4 to April 15. You may find out more about it here.
