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

Crystal Meditations for Quarantine

Crystals carry a lot of power. These earthen tokens of sacred geometry are said to hold the energies and secrets or the universe, and can also be charged, like any talisman, to hold the intention of the practitioner or wearer. These sparkling gem treasures are gifts to us from the Earth and can be used in a plethora of ways, and since the collective world is experiencing a vibrational and energetic shift due to quarantine and the covid-19 pandemic, many are searching for new ways to ground and center themselves while dealing with the emotional, physical, and financial upheaval that comes with this crisis.

April proves to be a mighty and potent month ahead. The Sun will be spending the first portion of the month in the sign of Aries. This brings about a noticeable shift energetically, encouraging everyone to be self-sufficient. Jupiter will make a rare conjunction to Pluto, shining a light on intense and often brutal topics. Pluto is the lord of the underworld and rules everything from death and destruction to regeneration. Pluto's keyword is evolution. Both physically and spiritually. Pluto will be meeting up with Jupiter in Capricorn, amplifying the world's current conditions. This is a once in about every twelve-year aspect, and promises even more significant upheavals in the weeks ahead. While some astrologers suggest this is the "kiss of death," I see things a bit differently. It's my job to inform readers and clients that the "stars impel, they do not compel." AKA; the astrology provides the framework to have experiences; it doesn't always dictate our lives. It merely provides the atmosphere...

New Moon in Aries: Brand New Dawn, March 24th, 2020

This New Moon is a fierce one, with more than just a little bit of heat behind it. Aries, the cardinal fire sign, is the very first of the zodiac. It’s a sign known for its independence and willingness to forge on. This is the very first New Moon in the astrological new year. This begins once the Sun moves into Aries, as it did a few days ago on March 20th. For astrologers and those from the Northern Hemisphere, we call this the Spring equinox. This is the welcoming of new energy and new life. Those of you wanting to set new personal “new year” goals, now is your time. I promise they’re more likely to stick than the ones set in January!..
