Full Moon in Virgo
On Monday, March 9th at 11:47am MT, we welcome the Full Moon in Virgo. As with any full moon, new truths and realizations will be illuminated as you prepare to release the old and make way for the new. This particular full moon is helping you overcome your fears as well as to acknowledge your weaknesses and forgive yourself for your shortcomings. It’s time that we remove stagnant emotions like guilt and self-pity as we shed the old versions of ourselves so that we can begin to blossom into the people we’re meant to become. We’re also reminded that boundaries will need to be put into place to direct the flow of our lives. Developing healthy boundaries with ourselves and others is necessary as we carve out space for ourselves in the world.
Now, let’s dive into these lunar aspects so you can harness these energies for your highest good.
Full Moon in Virgo Aspects
There are both challenges and opportunities that coincide with this lunar cycle - let’s start with the difficult aspects so we can end on a high note, shall we?
Virgo is the sign of the Goddess which means this full moon will give you the opportunity to tune into your divine feminine power. As such, Astrology King notes that this lunar cycle could increase your emotional sensitivity to the point that you can become confused about your own feelings and potentially misunderstand others and their intentions. Keep in mind that others are also experiencing these energies so you could possibly give off the wrong impression to others as well.
Our intuition could become negatively influenced by our subconscious fears and therefore, could be unreliable. You may find yourself imagining things that aren’t real, experience strange feelings, or have nightmares. Paranoia, hypochondria, weakness, guilt, and shame are also possible so be sure to take extra precautions if you’re feeling under the weather as that could cause you to be more susceptible to illness and infection.
Don’t worry, it’s not all bad news! This Full Moon in Virgo brings the end of Mercury Retrograde so any projects or areas of your life that have been in limbo will begin to flow again. (thank goodness!) This Full Moon is also trine Jupiter which brings about feelings of happiness and joy. It will allow you to be open and honest about your feelings to help reduce the deceptive influence of Neptune. Be sure to approach situations with mutual respect and understanding to reduce the confusing influences of these lunar qualities.
Increased self-awareness will help you differentiate between truth and illusion. Jupiter also brings the potential for harmony, hope, wealth, success, popularity, and friendship. This aspect provides a good overall perspective of who you are and your place in this world. The optimism, good intentions and moral integrity from this aspect make this a great opportunity for professional advancement, business, and legal matters. Phew - thank goodness for Jupiter, right? Now let’s move onto our chakra focus and ritual.
The Crown Chakra
For this Full Moon in Virgo, we urge you to ensure that your Crown Chakra is open and activated. Our crown chakra is the seventh chakra and is located at the top of the head. This chakra is associated with the color white or deep purple and serves as our connection with the Divine. It’s also responsible for:
- Consciousness, thoughts, and awareness
- Awareness of higher consciousness, wisdom, of what is sacred
- Realization, liberation from limiting patterns
- Communion with higher states of consciousness
- Ecstasy, bliss, and presence
When our crown chakra is imbalanced or blocked we can experience depression, a sense of alienation or disconnection from life, and a lack of empathy. Other symptoms can include:
- Insomnia, nightmares
- Boredom with life, loneliness
- Spiritual disconnection
- Rigid and limiting self-identity
- Greed and materialism
- Lack of purpose and direction
- Mental fog/confusion
- Headaches/migraines, light sensitivity
- Mental illnesses that involve delusions (e.g. schizophrenia)
- Neurological and endocrine disorders
Imbalances can be the result of living in stressful environments, fast-paced lifestyles or experiencing unresolved trauma that developed in childhood.
However, when open and activated, you’re able to channel messages from your Higher Self and the Divine, access higher states of consciousness, and develop a deep and trusting relationship with the Universe. You’ll find yourself connecting with something greater than yourself, experience the interconnectedness of all beings, and come to know that you are truly taken care of by a loving and abundant Universe.
If you feel like your Crown Chakra might be imbalanced, we invite you to explore this ritual to help strengthen your connection with Source.
Full Moon & Crown Chakra Ritual
For this Full Moon in Virgo ritual, we’ll explore a violet flame meditation to ensure that your crown chakra is open and clear. Begin by clearing the space however you feel called - sage, Palo Santo, prayer, etc.
Lay down or find yourself in a comfortable seated position - close your eyes and bring your attention to your breath. From there, imagine a swirling ball of white light around your crown chakra. Once your energy and conscious awareness are centered, begin transforming this light into a violet flame. Begin to visualize this violet flame dissolving any blockages, negativity, sluggishness, or aggressive energies that are dwelling within you.
Once you feel that is complete, we invite you to close this practice by repeating a few affirmations. We recommend using Kailo’s Crown Chakra oil essence for this ritual. You can put a few drops into your hands and hold them to your crown chakra as you recite your affirmations:
Crown Chakra Affirmations
- I am part of the Divine
- I honor the Divine within me
- I seek to understand and to learn from my life experiences
- I cherish my spirit
- I seek experiences that nourish my spirit
- I listen to the wisdom of the universe
- I trust my intuition
- I am open to letting go of my attachments
- I live in the present moment
We hope that this ritual helps you strengthen your connection with the Divine and that you begin to realize and embrace the powerful energetic being you are. We wish you a magical Full Moon in Virgo filled with love and happiness.
To You. From Us. With Love.
