Full Moon March 1, 2018 - Of Saints and Sinners


The first Full Moon of March happens this afternoon, at 11° Virgo, and rises on the star Zosma, in the constellation of Leo, has an opposition to Neptune and is trine to Saturn. There's good news about this, and there is not so good news, friends, so let's take a look at the good first.

People born under the sign of Virgo, the eternal caretaker, are known for their attention to detail, quick thinking, and exacting nature. Remember, the ruling planet of Virgo is Mercury, the Communicator. The fact that this Full Moon is rising at 11° is significant - 11 is considered a master number in numerology and represents awakenings, higher consciousness, and the opening of portals into higher realms and dimensions.

On the positive side, this Full Moon is just perfect for the artisan and craftsperson who is very skilled and produces very fine and detailed works. Their precision and perfectionist traits are enhanced by this Virgo Full Moon to the highest potential. This can be utilized working with styles that require intricate and delicate operation of tools, like lace-making, etching or fine jewelry making. Overall, this is a beautiful Full Moon that strikes the perfect balance between being magical, sensitive, and intuitive, with being practical and very guidance driven.

Full Moon trine Saturn is a big positive because it gives the patience and emotional strength to handle sensitive or difficult relationship issues. Saturn common sense and reality will clear up any self-delusion or fantasies you may have about others. Saturn gives a grounded feeling if you are feeling upset and eases the Neptune feeling of confusion and disorientation. However, this aspect is not as strong as the opposition to Neptune. Your instincts may not be so deceptive but you should still not rely on them.

The downside to this Moon is the hard opposition to Neptune, considered a planet of inspiration, dreams, psychic receptivity, illusion, and confusion. That's where the magical and sensitive parts come in, as I mentioned above. Neptune may increase your emotional sensitivity to such a level that you misunderstand others and become confused about your own feelings. You should take extra care in your dealings with others because you are likely to get the wrong impression and they will get the wrong impression about you. Generally this aspect one of the most sensitive and compassionate but we just have to be careful that the idealism is not misplaced, unrealistic and impractical.

At this Full Moon, we have the opportunity to be either saint or sinner, a nurse or a torturer, it just depends on how evolved your consciousness is. People who become unconscious through use of drugs or alcohol are opening themselves to being used by nefarious forces. Another tendency for those touched by this full moon will be the inability to take criticism from their superiors. Especially affected are the very people who dish out a very cutting critique of others. At this sensitive full moon however they will feel extremely wounded if they receive the same back. It'll certainly be entertaining to watch the effects of this Moon on the current occupants of the White House, if you'd like to correlate this Moon with current events.

As with any Full Moon, this is the perfect time to release whatever no longer serves your greatest and highest good. It's also the time to clear your crystals of any negativity they've picked up over the month. Gently lay them on a tray and let them bathe in the moonlight, whether outside or in a window. Remember, the veils between the worlds are thinnest around a full Moon, so be very careful what you invite in. Instead, the Full Moon is best used to purge things out, and banish entities/bad habits back to the underworld from whence they came. Make sure you close the door firmly afterwards! There will be another Full Moon this month, making it a Blue Moon, and we'll talk again then. Be well, everyone, and if you need any metaphysical cleansing supplies such as sage or Palo Santo, we're fully stocked!
