full moon in virgo

the sky was bright blue at six am, last night's gibbous moon long set. today, the sun enters pisces, and the full moon's in virgo.

someone asked me yesterday if i think the moon influences our behavior, collectively and as individuals. my answer is an unequivocable yes. i believe that its influence can be seen not just in tide tables, but in the very soup inside our cells. each of us isnt really much more on some level than a membrane around encased droplets of the primordial sea from which all life spawned. i believe one can attune oneself and one's energies to these influences, and can use them, preferably to the benefit of one's Self and others.

i believe this is the Work of the Witch.

the virgo full moon as the sun enters pisces is an "afflicted" moon - the energies of scientific, analytical virgo don't mix easily with soulful, transcendental pisces. but in their most evolved expression, virgo and pisces together represent the principles of healing through action, of conscious awareness for the holiness of all reality, down to the smallest particle. for virgo, caring comes when one works with others to find workable solutions to everyday problems. pisces provides the vision and the intuition, virgo provides the service, and the craft.

the lunar eclipse tonight intensifies this already intricate dance.

i know more than one person who's struggling to find solid footing under this challenging moon.

and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.

i am a pisces and i have a good virgo friend. we seem to connect deeply on one level, but i know that if he were my best friend or my husband, we would clash in many ways. from your description our relationship makes a little more sense to me. thanks.

It always cracks me up when the scientific types ignore the wisdom of astrology. My mom taught me sun-sign astrology when I was eight, and I've added to that a bit over the years. I'm an Aries, and I can always count on my phone to ring off the hook when the moon is in Aries... and also to become my more aggressive self. I clean and organize obsessively when the moon is in Virgo, talk and write my head off when it's in Gemini, and, well, we all know the effect of the Scorpio moon. My own moon is in Taurus... thank God. I know a triple Aries, and it ain't purty.

Love your blog -- LOVE it.
