Blessings for this Virgo Full Moon! February’s Full Moon, known as the “Snow Moon” is certainly living up to its name! High-velocity winds and chaotic weather patterns are all part of the erratic Aquarian energy ushered in with the New Moon stellium on February 11th. This Full Moon in Virgo reminds us that the powerful forces of nature cannot be underestimated. Humans cannot control nature, but we can certainly work with her. Being aware and conscious of just how much human energy affects the environment will become a major scientific focus in the years to come. The good news is that this month’s Aquarian energy ushers in the winds of change cutting through layers of density. There is a new wave of optimism and hope in the air, as spring approaches. Over the next month, I will be writing the astrology newsletters from Egypt. Last spring 2020 the Sekhmet Rising Class was birthed during my stay in Luxor. This March, I have been given the message to work specifically with Goddess Hathor’s energy while in Egypt. The theme is one of Sacred Sensuality and the Art of Relationship. Look for my announcement of this class for Mystery School of the Goddess beginning May 2021. You can also follow the trip on my FB pages: Mary Lomando/The Egyptian Blue Lotus.

FULL MOON IN VIRGO FEBRUARY 27, 2021
All Full Moons illustrate the themes of the opposite signs involved. During this Full Moon, we are balancing the Virgo/ Pisces polarity. Both of these signs are about service. Virgo is all about discrimination and attention to detail without being overly judgmental or critical. Pisces is about following your spiritual and artistic impulses and being of service to divine inspiration, rather than personal ego. Virgo stresses the need for order, purity, and symmetry; while Pisces is often adrift in a sea of dreams. The lesson is how to remain grounded without losing hope for achieving your dreams? Virgo is a practical Earth sign. Her role is to be of service and to help others through her mental acuity, rather than to be the prima donna. She is the director, choreographer, and set designer, and accountant, rather than the star of the show.
The Virgo/Pisces polarity brings up the important theme of compassionate discernment. When is it more beneficial to surrender the personal ego to a higher power; and when is it more appropriate to stand your ground? If boundaries are your issue (either too porous or too rigid), notice how these issues play out in your personal life. Full Moons have a way of bringing issues to the surface.
The ruler of the sign of Virgo is the planet, Mercury, which rules our thought processes, language, and communication. Virgo is also the sign of healers; she calls for us to be of service on the planet, but to also be discriminating in thought, word and deed. Be aware of how you choose to express yourself. Words do matter! Are your words toxic or nourishing to yourself and others? The world we create is a product of our thinking.
If your Sun, Moon, or Ascendant (Rising Sign) falls in the sign of Virgo, this is your personal Full Moon. If Virgo is your sun sign, or you have major planets in the sign, the themes of discrimination, self-analysis, and attention to detail are important for your growth and development. Avoid obsessive/compulsive thinking, or being addicted to perfection. Virgos are vulnerable to excessive worry and anxiety, which can affect the nervous and digestive systems. If you are a Virgo, pay close attention to your diet (since Virgo rules the intestines), especially in regard to food allergies. Virgos like to look and feel good, so they may be involved in the fashion industry, as well as health and fitness professions.
Virgos are good with their hands and very skilled at fixing things. Designers, models, craftspeople, accountants, medical technicians, and musicians (especially guitarists) have Virgo prominent in their birth horoscopes. The lesson with Virgo is to be consciously aware of negative thinking patterns. Old hurts can unconsciously lead to self-sabotage. If you find yourself being too judgmental of yourself and others, try using positive affirmations to break the habit. Virgos can often become obsessive and go to extremes in diet or hygiene ranging from total perfection to sloppy untidiness. Often a simple dose of fresh air and exercise in nature help to free the mind from mental clutter. Having a loving pet, and/or hobby can also help to alleviate any Virgo anxiety.
At this time both the Sun and Venus are in the watery sign of Pisces opposite the Full Moon in Virgo. This can be a very creative time for artistic inspiration and spiritual aspiration, as the lure of the subconscious becomes very seductive. Although Virgo is a very practical, earthy Moon sign, and Mercury is, once again, moving direct in the sign of Aquarius, we may still find it is difficult to concentrate on mundane tasks with all of the Piscean energy around. This Full Moon is the perfect time for a relaxing aromatherapy bath, beach walk, meditation… any experience where you can just let your mind unwind. Piscean planets inspire your creativity, while the solidly capable Virgo Moon reinforces the need for practical action. This may be the time to dust off a creative project that has been sitting on the shelf, or clear the clutter from your desk or workspace and re-engage with your vision. Some effective techniques for re-activating your creative spark are active imagination, meditation, and journey work, hypnosis, past life regression, journal writing, and dream analysis. Find a deck of inspirational cards that speaks to you and see what messages come. Have some fun with it. During this Full Moon, you may be much more in tune with your inner psychic!
With this Full Moon, the planet Mercury is finally out of retrograde (since mid-January) in the sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is the fixed air sign, which rules science, telecommunications, electronics, computer technology; and interestingly enough, astrology. This is the time to buy that smartphone, laptop, or tech device that you have been waiting for; take an online class, get an astrology reading, or enjoy an uplifting group activity like yoga or reiki. With Jupiter in the picture, there is a lot more optimism and hope in the air right now. It is time to expand your mind and think more positively; more opportunities are becoming available. Aquarius brings in the idea of more individual freedom, but also the need to act responsibly. The second half of February is one of those rare months when there are no retrogrades at all!
Full Moon in Virgo Trine Uranus in Taurus:
This is a very positive aspect for thinking out of the box. New and innovative ideas lend themselves to practical implementation. We can get a lot done now, especially coming out of the retrograde period.
The Virgo Full Moon is associated with Isis, the Great Mother Goddess of Egypt (some say that the original face of the Great Sphinx was carved in the image of Isis during the Age of Virgo). This was the age of the matrilineal, agrarian societies when the feminine face of the goddess was revered and worshipped. Isis was the goddess who taught her people the right use of magic, the healing arts, and the importance of “words of power”. Healing chants, drumming, and sacred dances were all part of the rituals that were used in the healing temples of Isis to ensure health to the mind, body, and spirit.
FULL MOON MEDITATION WITH THE GODDESS ISIS:
Take a few moments to gaze at the light of the Full Moon. (If you cannot view the moon, imagine it in your mind’s eye.) Allow the light to penetrate your third eye. Then, light a white candle, get into a comfortable position, and take a few deep breaths allowing all that is heavy or toxic (worries, anxiety, and troubling thoughts) to leave your body. If you have a favorite essential oil, anoint your third eye and heart chakras at this time. (You may prefer to do this meditation after a relaxing bath). If you work with a special crystal, the full moon is a good time to reactivate and recharge it. Visualize a blue lotus extending its stem from your crown to the blue/white star group, Sirius, the “home” of Isis. As you connect this “star cord”, the Goddess Isis appears before you wearing a white linen gown and a blue cloak trimmed with gold. Her forehead is encircled with a band of gold, and a 5-pointed star of lapis lazuli sits over her third eye. Her gaze is deep but loving. She communicates with you telepathically. She asks that you meditate on all that you are thankful for in your life right now. It can be as brief or as detailed as you like. She then asks that you think about all that you wish to release or let go of in your life over the next 2 weeks. All that is causing you pain, grief, worry, or regret. (You can also write this down in your journal or diary). Then, she asks that you project yourself into the future and write down how you see yourself in the next 6 months. What would you like to manifest? You can meditate on this for a few minutes. Then, Isis leads you into her temple, a vast crystalline hall bathed in Light. The full moon is beaming down through the top of the temple which is open to the night sky. The light of the Star Sirius also shines into her temple entering your Crown chakra. Feel the diamond white light of Sirius and the soft white moonlight mix together like an elixir of light that bathes your crown chakra in its delicious essence. Allow this crystalline liquid to bathe your mid-brain and pass through your entire body. Immerse yourself in this diamond liquidity of light. Breathe it in. Allow a few minutes to float in this womb of Light.
May you walk in Truth and Beauty Always,
