Brace for a tidal wave of verbiage on the Full Moon at 07° 24′ Virgo on 25 February 2013, 12:26 PM PST. Jupiter in ever chatty Gemini square the lunar axis is the source. It looks to be one of those times when everyone has an opinion and no problem sharing it.
Another factor promoting endless dialogue is a Mercury-Mars conjunction in mutable Pisces. Mercury is a couple of days into one of its retrograde periods, pushing communications to the forefront for better or worse. Whenever Mars conjoins Mercury words can end up being turned into weapons and since mutable signs in general prefer to talk their way out of trouble? Yup, lots of talk, talk, talk. Just be thankful this conjunction is in amiable Pisces who is a generally peaceable sort. If it was in Scorpio for instance, heads would roll. The retrograde factor implies arguments could go revisit the same points many times before matters are resolved . . . a truly scary thought.
Given the Sun in Pisces conjoins Chiron and the Moon is in Virgo, one of the signs noted for a desire to heal, this Full Moon may bring opportunities to experience catharsis and healing of long standing wounds. Saturn in Scorpio, another sign of healers, and Pluto in Capricorn create harmonious, supportive aspects to the lunar axis. What this suggests to me is whilst delving into those old wounds is bound to have extremely painful moments the wounds once drained will heal up nicely. Be brave!
Uranus in Aries has something to add via the ongoing sextile to Jupiter in Gemini and tense aspects to the Sun and Moon. Aries is semi-sextile the Pisces Sun and inconjunct the Virgo Moon. Rash Uranus in Aries essentially irritates the luminaries because it wants action NOW and is in no mood to sit down and discuss things. As frustrating as this is, please don’t dismiss ideas generated out of hand because chances are those ideas hold a kernel of brilliance and can be applied to good effect at a later date. Those who have personal planets and the Ascendant at 6° to 7° Aries, Virgo or Pisces are the most likely to get the full effect.
Venus leaves Aquarius for Pisces within hours after the Full Moon and proceeds to conjoin Neptune in Pisces (the aspect is exact on 28 February). You know those romantic plans you made for Valentine’s Day? Now is a much more favorable time to put those into motion. Grab those rose-colored glasses and plan a candlelit dinner for two. It will worth it, potential hangover and all. *grin*
The beauty of this Full Moon in Virgo is its mutable quality . . . all those marvelous options to choose from. Cardinal signs initiate, fixed signs keep us on course but without the mutable sign ability to conceive of alternatives and think inclusively, the world would be a much poorer place. Relax and go with the flow . . . who knows what marvelous vistas will appear!
On a personal note: Thankfully this Full Moon the most intense aspects don’t affect my chart. Venus in Aquarius is trine my Sun and the Mercury-Mars conjunction in Pisces is making a waxing trine to my natal Mars in Scorpio from the fourth house. Might inspire me to do some spring housecleaning or work in the yard.
