Analysis
The Sun and Moon make their monthly opposition illuminating the Moon in Virgo. This full Moon shines a light on both Virgo and Pisces. Virgo is a mutable earth sign, dedicated to getting down to the details. Ruled by Mercury, one would assume this particular full moon is intense to Mercury's current retrograde in the opposite sign, Pisces. Both signs symbolize the "pause and reflect" in the zodiac. While Virgo is more likely to come up with the crisis that Pisces heals, this lunation may bring up an area of your life where you feel its time to "clean house" (figuratively or literally). This is a time to be in touch with reality and seek the truth. Practical matters come up with a whopping seven planets in Earth signs. 
 
Jupiter emphasizes the particular energy of this Moon with positive aspects to both the Sun in Pisces and Neptune as well. Idealizing or fantasizing comes to mind. It's very easy to get caught up in the what "could be" here. Be mindful— the overly analytical Moon in Virgo also forms positive aspects to a heavy stellium of Capricorn energy. With connections to heavy hitters like Pluto, Saturn, and Mars suggests opportunities to build something grand. This Moon has the chance to analyze and strategically plan. Much can be accomplished as a result of this Moon in terms of building for the future. Now is the time to raise your standards. Put finishing touches on anything that needs it. Commit to a healthier lifestyle. Look for assistance if you need it within your home or business. 
 
Venus has moved into the sister sign of Taurus and is nuzzled up next to Uranus. This can be some shocking, unexpected situations in regards to romance or finances. Shakeups taking place around the time of this Full Moon may take a solid week or two to pan out because they will be amplified by planets in Capricorn. Trust that what may ultimately come to an end, is meant to. Full Moons often bring some matters to a close. Space is being made for much more reliable possibilities. The universe is encouraging you to think long term. With Aspects to the north node, topics centering around home, family, or emotions will appear. Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) are especially sensitive to these changes, and may expect to feel an extra oomph energetically.
 
Both Uranus and Chiron are in tune with the lunar nodes. On one end, Uranus points the way to positive changes and breaking out of old patterns. On the other, Chiron still reminds us of the growing pains taking place in the process. Make the most of this Moon and take your time. Don't over-analyze, or beat yourself up either. Everything happens in divine time. Take stock of what you're doing right, practice a glass is half full type of mentality. Take care of your tummy and listen to your body. Time spent with pets, or even being of service can help put your mind at ease. Once Mercury ends his retrograde mid-March, things will become more apparent. Look for clearer skies at the end of the month.

Full Moon in Virgo Ritual 
You will need:
Steps:
  1. Take your smudge or incense and clear your space, opening sacred space. 
  2. Light the blue candle, then the white. This is to set intentions, explicitly relating to improving something in your life. 
  3. Light your charcoal and wait until its red hot. Carefully burn cedar inside an incense burner. Using cedar cones, or stick work well also*. Allow to burn until it smolders. 
  4. Take your pen and paper and meditate on what it is you are manifesting or perfecting. When you're ready, write that out on your paper. Keep the timing in the now; you want to write as if it's already happening. 
  5. Take this and fold it towards you three times. When you are finished, place this on an altar space with the quartz crystal on top. 
  6. Place the Hermit card on this as well. Leave this up for a few days to help manifest your intentions. 
  7. Close sacred space when you are finished. 
Other Ritualistic Ideas:
  • See a metaphysical healer 
  • Detox or cleanse
  • Clean and purge your home or workspace 
  • Apply for a new job, set up an abundance altar
  • Spend time with pets or animals in need
  • Volunteer 
  • Spend time out in nature

This Full Moon is in the fixed air sign of Aquarius. This quirky, social, fun-loving sign is all about seeing the bigger picture. Often confused for a water sign, it's an intellectual air sign. Known as the water bearer, not for its emotions per-say, but merging the collective energies and emotions with the great collective. The Star card in the Tarot represents Aquarius. This is the card that comes shortly after The Tower and is seen as welcomed peace and serenity after a crisis. It's safe to say this Full Moon may deliver us a bit of sweet and salty emotions. Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius, and in the case of this Full Moon is the start of...

August is a month where I encourage everyone to slow down and cool their jets. The intensity of the planetary aspects will only increase as the month goes on. Take your time when traveling places, or making significant decisions. Steer clear of any conflict, and steer clear of going toe to toe with someone. Tempers are likely to flare, and some of the most dangerous and unexpected things can take place. This will be due to transit Mars's squares causing friction with Saturn, Jupiter, and Pluto. Mars and Pluto are the bosses of astrology; no one wants to pick a fight with them. When they come into challenging angles, explosive events take place. The month kicks off with Mercury the messenger in opposition to Pluto on the first. This will bring about intense conversations, and possibly some juicy information. Shortly after, Mercury will oppose Saturn in Capricorn as well, indicating some new set of rules or regulations being rolled out. This is just in time for

The word Leo is derived from the Greek word leon meaning lion. The constellation can be seen in the sky as a Lion bearing Regulus, the royal star that is closest to the sun along the ecliptic making it one of the most powerful fixed stars in the sky. In ancient Egypt, several gods and goddesses were depicted with lions heads such as Mahees, and Sekhmet, the son and daughter of the Sun god Ra sent to attack evils and commit honorable acts of sacrifice. In Greek mythology, as part of the twelve labors to King Aristias, Heracles was tasked to ...
