Full Moon Magical Virgo


March 1st, we have the first of two full moons in March ~ another magical month. She reaches her fullness in Virgo tomorrow at 4:51 pm PST (7:51 pm EST`).  Native Americans called this Moon the Worm Moon as this is the time of the year when the earth begins to soften and the earthworms begin to make their way to the surface.

Full Moons are a time for releasing, letting go and recalibrating and joining this Virgo Full Moon we have a Venus-Jupiter trine that also adds a joy and optimism that can boost your confidence and faith ~ take notice your day tomorrow!

Under her fullness, Grandmother Moon is sitting in the first house and so it is a good time to be present to the way you enter a room and to what you leave behind when you leave the room.  It is also a good time to take a look at things from different directions to shift your perspective. Remember even small shifts can lead to big awakenings and healing.

Virgo Moons can open up our energy around our life paths and encourage us to bring our radiance out into the world to support healing for ourselves and others. This is a wonderful time to work with your Throat Chakra. Clearing the Throat Chakra helps you to have good, clear communication enabling you to express yourself authentically.

Full Moon Ceremony

Taking the time to create and share in ceremony/rituals under the Full Moon can be food for your soul. This is a time of the month when many women ovulate, symbolizing Purna energy, a time of fullness, expansiveness and productivity. Rituals/ceremonies deeply nourish our spirit and soul and afterwards, you will find that you are more clear and connected to your center.

Here is a simple chakra ceremony that you can use under this Virgo Moon ~


  • Start your day with a blueberry and coconut water smoothie ~ healing and energizing for your throat chakra with the healing blue color and cooling liquid.
    • Blend together blueberries, kefir, maca powder and a little cacao powder ~ top it off with your favorite toppings (roasted sunflower seeds, or bee pollen).


  • Prepare for your evening ceremony by gathering the following:
    • Music: I recommend downloading the Song: Dancing Through the Chakras by Terry Oldfield & Soraya Saraswati (you can find it online)
    • Pick out a Mandala Picture here & print it out on a heavy stock paper for coloring later;
    • Coloring pencils, water colors, markers or chalk for coloring your mandala;
    • Candles;
    • Sage
    • Gemstones (emerald, turquoise, aquamarine);
    • Lavender essential oil
    • Tea (Lavender tea is lovely!);
    • Blue or turquoise pajamas or something colored to wear while you dance, color and sleep!

Your Ceremony ~ you can do this in the evening or in the morning during the Full Moon ~

  • Find your space where you will be able to hold your ceremony (preferably somewhere you can experience the light of Grandmother Moon’s fullness) and create a small alter using your gemstones, candles, tarot cards and a blue, green or earth tone colored cloth or pictures.
  • Lay out your mandala paper and materials for coloring on your table/floor.
  • Light your sage and cleanse the room, yourself and your altar.
  • Light your candles and use the lavender oil on yourself and around the room to lightly permeate your senses and surroundings.
  • If you use tarot cards, draw a card to work with during your ceremony. One card is good as it can speak to you more clearly when you ask a clear and concise question.
  • Light your candles and turn out the lights ~ if not candles turn your lights down low or off if you feel so inclined so that you tune into your body fully.
  • Start your music and follow the dance through all your Chakra’s paying special attention to the Throat Chakra. When you are done ~ stop and take a deep breath. Take a few minutes feel your body and energy. Where is the energy moving? How do you feel? Notice your throat chakra.
  • Move to your space to create and color your mandala… stay connected to your body and the energy from the dance. If you are drawn to write ~ do! This is a great time to listen to what your body wants to share with you.
  • Make your tea and sip on your tea and write in your journal before bed.

Place your mandala somewhere that you will see it often during the next two weeks ~ for me, this is an important part of the healing power of ceremony. To bring it forward is how we hold onto the power and healing we experienced during the ceremony.

Here are a few questions to think about during your ceremony:

  • Have you ever taken time to contemplate what it means to express yourself authentically?
  • Do you take time to listen to others and yourself daily?
  • What words do you choose daily to speak out to the world?

Mother Earth is shifting into spring and we are shifting with her ~ feel the movement, be the movement. Catch her the Moonlight and follow the energy.

The month of March begins with a Full Moon in Virgo counterbalancing the mystical magic of the Pisces stellium that I wrote about a few days ago (read more here). With five planets in Pisces and Neptune figuring prominently in the chart of the Full Moon, the desire to transcend and melt into an experience of bliss and creative spirituality will be strong, with only the Virgo Moon to provide balance and order. Integrating polarities is an important part of any Full Moon since the Sun and Moon are always in opposite signs at that time. Here we are learning to find a balance between day to day life in a body (Virgo) and the creative inspiration of Pisces.

The opportunity for experiences that open the heart will be many with a trine from Venus in Pisces, which is already open and ready to achieve bliss, to Jupiter in Scorpio which as it prepares to turn retrograde later this month is at a standstill, beaming a laser light of expansion and confidence in our ability to passionately (Scorpio) embrace life and love (Venus) in all of its many forms and with all of the blemishes intact.

A harmonious trine from Saturn to the Moon helps to ground her earthiness amidst the mystical magic of the Pisces/Neptune influence.  This Full Moon asks that we align firmly with our bodies and find our center in the earth while allowing our hearts to open and swell with love and an acceptance of the bliss of divine connection.  Not an easy path, but one which will bring abundant blessings!
