Moon in Virgo
“It sometimes takes a moment of solitude to bring to mind the real power of companionship.” – Stephen Richards
This Sunday morning brings to light our third Full Moon of 2017; a lunar event the Native Americans refer to as The Worm Moon. Its name comes from the timely reemergence of the hardworking earthworm who will fertilize the Earth, its tireless efforts setting the stage for the Spring Equinox on March 20th.
A Full Moon floods our ecosystem with light, transferring with it extra energy – thus categorizing it as the most vibrant, productive, creative, and often chaotic time of the lunar cycle. The Moon, representative of the divine feminine spirit or Yin energy, is currently halfway through the Earth bound sign of Virgo. The altruistic analyst, Virgoan caste excel at making things better and run more smoothly. They are the guardian sign of the sixth house, the house of daily routine and health, and carry with with them a sharp wit and ability to communicate.
With Virgo shedding it’s light via our astrological symbol of subconscious and emotive foundation, this Full Moon and proceeding lunar phase encourages us to work through some of the issues we would have otherwise swept under the rug of heavy hearts, overfilled plates, and emotional battle wounds.
A nearly opposite aspect (interaction) with asteroid Chiron may hasten the effort to sort through past emotional, physical, and spiritual hang-ups bubbling to the conscious surface. Generally stimulating our Root Chakra as well as our Sacral Chakra, this along with written or verbal self-expression will ultimately leave us lighter, more whole, and confident.

Sun In Pisces
“Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door.” – Emily Dickinson
The Sun, the brilliant and ever constant symbol of divine masculine energy (Yang) sits opposite the Full Moon in Pisces; the 12th and final sign of the zodiac. In the last week or so I’ve found it unusually difficult to go a few moments without finding myself confronted with a situation compelling me to help out, adapt, or let go.
Pisces, the enigmatic water element sign sits across from Virgo on the Zodiac, relating largely to the Sacral and Third Eye Chakras. Sun in Pisces renews our faith in self-renewal as well as generational change; it inspires us to dream more and worry less, and supports mindfulness and present moment meditation practice.
Characteristically mysterious and empathetic, Pisces destabilizes the constancy of the Sun; perhaps it’s best described as a sun shower that turns into a rainbow on a warm spring day. This unique interaction can encourage energy fluctuation, unexpected emotional revelations, and decreased focus/memorization skills.
Sun in Pisces acts instead as muse as it rewards the spirit with a deep yearning to use the imagination; exploring new techniques, freestyling, partner work, underwater movement exploration, and catching up on restorative energy work are all excellent ways to make use of the Sun in Pisces combination.
Finding Your Freestyle Ideas: Sun in Pisces feeds the unexpected or welcomes any new approach; imaginitive shape play, loosely structured movement assignments, sensual-based floor sequences, and working within groups to develop solo expression would all be ventures highlighted by this Sun transit.
Tips: With heightened emotional sensitivity, demanding and/or aggressive movement should be suspended until the Sun moves into independent, fiery Aries.
