Tomorrow the Moon will be full at 1° Virgo 53′ trine Pluto in Capricorn and conjunct Saturn. Plus this Full Moon is going to be a total eclipse, visible in the skies above North America. Lynn Hayes has a nifty diagram on her blog with links you can follow to get more info on this eclipse path, News of the Upcoming Eclipse. Those of us with planets or Angles from zero to five degrees will be feeling this puppy, especially if said planets and Angles are in Mutable signs or Cardinal (courtesy of Pluto in Capricorn . . .)
There are a lot of other astrologers with a better grasp of the Virgo/Pisces axis than I with my lonely Virgo Midheaven writing about this lunation including a couple of great ones on Moon Circles. For me this Full Moon falls across my 3rd House and 9th House, squaring my Venus in Sagittarius in the first. How I see myself in relation to the greater world is being highlighted and just recently I realized somewhere along the line I had undergone a big change in that area. I have become a comfortable person. It may have something to do with my Ascendant having progressed into Capricorn about the time I got married and now my progressed Sun being there too; and honestly, I’m not quite sure what to make of this transition. It’s like the drama and intensity of Scorpio has slowly washed away exposing the calm, centeredness that lay within, surprising the heck out of me!
Pluto is closely trine this full moon and it would behoove us to pay attention to our emotional house cleaning now because if we don’t, we may be setting ourselves up for a ruder awakening when Pluto forms a T-square with the Full Moon axis March 21st in Aries and Libra!
Vesta is closely conjunct the Sun in Pisces for this lunation and it so happens I have Vesta in Pisces in my natal chart trine Mars/Mercury in Scorpio. I’m very much in the learning phase when it comes to the asteroids and thought I’d share the interpretation from my software on Vesta in Pisces (let me know if you would like info on your Vesta):
Vesta in Pisces
A pursuit of the purely spiritual can become a deep focus in your life if you allow it, perhaps even to the exclusion of more mundane things that really do matter in everyday life. Taken in context, however, it gives you the ability to penetrate to the heart of dreams and bring out their essential meanings.
Now that both Mercury and Mars are direct, we can use the power of this eclipse to move ahead on our path! Now I will find out if having transiting Neptune exactly square my Mercury will allow me to “see” my way or whether I will have to do as the Fool does and take the next step forward with faith . . . 😀
This is another photo of the Full Moon in Leo – leave it to Leo to provide plenty of opportunities to make the most of a photo op! 🙂
