With a full moon in Virgo underway, the cosmos beckons us to embrace the essence of purification. But before we dive deep into the astrology of this lunation, let’s take a close look at the magic and spirituality of this lunar phase. As you may remember, the full moon phase marks the midpoint of the lunar cycle, which is when the moon is fully illuminated as seen from Earth. Similar to the way the new moon marks a period of renewal and intention setting, the full moon is a representation of completion, culmination, and emotional revelations. It’s a powerful reminder of the cyclical nature of our lives, urging us to reflect on emotional evolution and release what no longer serves us. Energy flows where attention goes, so many of you could begin to see your intentions come to fruition at this time. 

This is a perfect time to think back to the new moon in Virgo that took place back in September 2023. Governed by Mercury, Virgo’s zodiac archetype is symbolic of our emotional, mental, and physical well-being. It teaches us to approach life with meticulousness and refinement. Under the influence of this lunation, we are called to purify our mind, body, and soul, seeking clarity and balance in every aspect of our lives. This is a time to assess our habits, routines, and relationships with a discerning eye, identifying areas in need of improvement so we can take practical steps toward personal growth. This lunation encourages us to refine our routines, organize our surroundings, and clear our minds. However, this is a lot easier said than done when considering the astrology of this full moon, especially with Mercury (its ruler) detriment in Pisces.

Remember, the full moon phase is essentially a call for balance between the sun (our sacred masculinity, ego, and physical identity) and the moon (our divine femininity, emotional landscape, and innermost feelings). With the sun in Pisces and the moon in Virgo, we are presented with a unique opportunity to harmonize the subconscious and the practical aspects of our lives. Dreamy Pisces, ruled by Neptune, is associated with intuition, empathy, and spirituality. Methodical Virgo, on the other hand, is ruled by Mercury and is recognized for its analytical nature, attention to detail, and perpetual acts of service. In our birth chart, the sixth house (Virgo) represents our day-to-day lifestyle in the physical dimension, while the 12th house (Pisces) speaks about our privacy and unconscious patterns. 

With all of that being said, this full moon is asking us to reflect on what we need to get in order, mentally and spiritually. After all, our physical reality is a manifestation of our inner world, so if something’s off balance, Luna will be the first to let you know. More importantly, with Mercury (the ruler of this lunation) transiting the sign of Pisces, our introspection is deepened, and our intuition is heightened, but there’s a catch. While Pisces encourages us to trust our instincts and embrace the subtleties of the unseen realms, Mercury seeks tangible evidence and concrete details. This synergy ultimately challenges us to create a balance between what we feel intuitively and the logical evidence being presented to us at this time.

On a brighter note, the moon will form a harmonious trine to Jupiter, the planet of abundance, expansion, and spiritual wisdom. This means that despite what may seem ambiguous or hard difficult comprehend at first could result in something incredibly rewarding. Are you ready to put in the work? Know that what is being illuminated is being brought to your attention for a reason. Make a commitment to be the best version of yourself. 

Your health and well-being are a priority under this lunation, Aries. Hovering over your sixth house of wellness, routines, and day-to-day affairs, Luna is prompting you to pay close attention to your daily devotions and health regimen. You may feel a strong urge to refine your schedule and establish healthier habits during this time.  Mercury in Pisces will simultaneously provide you with intuitive insight, even if that means you feel guided to get more rest or spend time in solitude. Luckily, Luna's trine to Jupiter indicates there is a sense of expansion and/or optimism when it comes to your finances and a sense of security. Reflections: How can you prioritize your self-care routine to enhance your overall well-being? What steps are you taking to establish a healthier lifestyle?

While encouraging you to explore new hobbies and passion projects that contribute to your productivity, the influence of Mercury in Pisces brings focus to your social networks and that of your colleagues, friendships, and like-minded peers. Let your intuition guide you toward aligning your social connections with your long-term goals.
