In the early hours of the morning (00:51 UT here in the UK), the Moon was exactly opposite the Sun in the sky – meaning it was a Full Moon. If you’re interested in the details, the Moon was at 11°23 Virgo opposing the Sun in Pisces.
At Full Moon we look back at what progress we’ve made since the New Moon (that amazing Lunar Eclipse on February 15th!). What did we set in motion then? That New Moon was in Aquarius so perhaps we were thinking about starting something original – exploring an unorthodox or unconventional approach to a new project.
We’ve reached the peak of that now, with this Full Moon. It’s time to look back and assess the strengths and flaws of our intentions. If we think of the Full Moon as a mirror (the Moon reflects the light of the Sun), we may ‘see the light’ as to how to make the most of the virtues (Virgo) of our plans. The challenge, on this Virgo-Pisces axis, is to find a way to integrate judgment and compassion.
It’s also worth thinking back 6 months or so, to the Virgo New Moon, back in September 2017 (on the 20th). What were your intentions then? Perhaps you were setting new work routines in place, or starting a new fitness regime? Anything to do with your daily routines and what keeps you healthy – be it in mind, body, or spirit.
