The first of two full moons in March will appear late on March 1st or early on the 2nd, depending on location, and will be sitting at the 11th degree of Virgo.
Change will be happening thick and fast and, due to the moon being in opposition to Neptune, much of the change will be surrounding deception within our intimate relationships. This will be mostly due to our intuition being out of sync, when usually a full moon heightens our intuition and psychic senses. This means that during this full moon we may feel paranoid and believe our fearful and suspicious thoughts to be true, with jealousy, insecurity, and controlling behaviours rising to the surface.
It is highly likely that our dreams, or possibly nightmares, may be more intense as this moon comes into full fruition, and it’s worth being aware that it could be during sleep that we experience the greatest amount of turmoil. Whether we remember our dreams or not, what we dream about can significantly influence how we feel throughout the day. So if we are dreaming about disturbing things, such as our partner cheating on us, or of a dysfunctional love dynamic, it is likely that we will feel restless, irritable, and maybe even angry as we go about our day.
Our doubtful and untrusting mind may cause a variety of difficulties as we get caught up in imaginary scenarios—particularly from the last days of February through the first week of March. We may be struggling to differentiate a truth from a lie, and will not know who is being genuine or deceptive. For those who are usually highly intuitive, this can pose great problems, as when all else fails, their gut instinct is there to steer them in the right direction.
Until then, it will seem that our circumstances are full of misconceptions, misunderstandings, and confusion, as we struggle to see who is on our side and who is secretly sticking knives in our back.
To top it off, our sensitivities will be off the scale, and we will want to emotionally react to things that we’d normally let pass. This may cause personality clashes with arguments and disagreements flaring up, and may even lead to closing doors on certain friendships or relationships. Though, if we are truthful with ourselves, these are the ones we probably should have ended long ago due to the amount of chaos they bring to our lives.
The full moon being in Virgo only adds to heightened tensions as it causes us to seek perfection, look for mistakes, and to criticise rather than chill out with our expectations and understand that we aren’t flawless ourselves. That said, we also deserve to be treated respectfully, so if people are consistently putting us down or taking advantage, this Virgo air will illuminate all that’s harmful in our lives and encourage us to surround ourselves with those who pull us up rather than down.
As with all storms, we have a choice: we can go into self-protection/damage limitation mode and turn off our phones and take shelter, hibernate, and isolate for a few days to keep ourselves away from as much human interaction as possible, or we can confront the storm head on, ride it, and see what it’s here to teach us.
Whichever we choose, thankfully the moon is not full for long, so it won’t be too long before calmness and harmony return, and, in the meantime, there is a good chance we will be ending certain chapters in our lives, and even closing the book where some relationships are concerned—which may have been long overdue.
With this snow storm I have caught a head cold and am feeling rather down in the dumps, but like in the previous paragraph I will not let it defeat my mood and instead understand that what my body is seeking is much needed rest. My body needs rest (my eyes have been killing me the last few days so much so that I been to the opticians to get new glasses). All indications that my body needs rest and nurture. Listen to your body these few days when the full moon is around.
Let me know what your body has been craving or where it has been aching? Have you felt lower in mood? Craving sugary or salty foods around tis time?
Until next time…
