8 Virgo 57

In general, the full moons in Virgo are wonky three-day windows.  It is not that they are problematic or full of drama, but more that Virgo Full Moons can stoke our insecurity.    We look at others and situations and see all the problems.   Or we look at ourselves and feel ‘less than’.   Virgo who is always in search of perfect can bring our most critical eye.  It is a great moon to tackle tasks and fix stuff.  But we have to be careful that critical eye does not cloud our judgement.   As the expression goes, “Don’t let the perfect get in the way of the good.”

So, what is the solution?   Like all full moons we turn to the opposite side of the teeter totter which on Virgo Full Moons means we turn to the  Pisces Sun for guidance.     The Sun in Pisces helps us tap into something bigger than our flaws.  When we are really rattled and super critical and anxious, we should find our intuition.  Or creativity. Or find humanity.  Or find prayer.    In short, on Virgo full moon we are reminded that there is something bigger out there than our to-do list.

The chart for this Full Moon has the tightest aspect between the Sun & Moon with Saturn (semi sextile and inconjunct) followed by the aspect of Sun & Moon with Uranus (sextile and Trine) at less than two degrees.    This is most curious since Saturn and Uranus just wrapped up their tense square aspect last week.  The Saturn square Uranus aspects will occur two more times this year and it is the signature aspect of the year.    The first-round last week was a bit of an assault on the senses.   Ask anyone in Texas about their electrical grid (Saturn in Aquarius- which rules electricity).     On the personal level take a look at where you felt your inner grid collapse?   Where did you feel your energy leave you or short out?   What hurdles showed up?  Do you have more insight on your responsibilities?  Or do you know more about what is not your responsibility?    What I find to be quite remarkable is that this powerful Saturn square Uranus aspect for 2021 is followed so quickly by a full moon where both Sun and Moon are making tight aspects with…drum roll… Saturn and Uranus.   What are the odds?   Evidently, the universe seems to think we need to find our way with both Saturn and Uranus on this full moon.

When I was a kid, my friends and I would go to a public Olympic size pool and try to swim to the deepest part with the only goal to touch the bottom with our hands.   I believe I was successful once and felt challenged since my friends were better swimmers than me, but it didn’t stop me from trying every time I went swimming in that huge pool.   I think of that act when I consider Sun in Pisces, Moon in Virgo full moon.  The desire to want something concrete, an easy identified task to do, insecurity if it can be done while being in an opposite of a concrete environment.     And of course, Pisces is a water sign which speaks to swimming.

Where will we be swimming on this full moon?    What are our tasks?   It could be anywhere and anything, but Saturn speaks to responsibility.  Some things demand we step up or since Saturn also cuts down, some things are not our responsibility.   The Aquarius  suggests we may need the help of our community.    Or perhaps we will have a task that will help the community.   We could seek like- minded ideal help or  brainstorming solutions with friends.  Uranus in Taurus could provide unique assistance that is practical but could come from out of the blue.   This full moon could find you bumping into something weird that is helpful and may provide useful later in 2021.      The challenge on this three-day cycle is that there is also a thread of impulsivity  (moon quincunx Uranus) which could amplify provocative behaviors.   Take note of  someone acting ‘crazy’.   Be mindful of the narrator’s state of mind and as always, get silent and meditate if things seem too confusing.

One gift to the whole full moon chart is Venus on the Sun opposing moon.  There is a patina of gentleness and kindness that should soften the harsher criticalness of Virgo.   We may connect with others through love, beauty and shared values.

Finally, if things get tense, one thing that will also help is put on music and dance or get lost in a good movie as these are Pisces’ long suits.  Replenish the psyche and soul when the task seems daunting.    And remember, just keep on swimming.

Full Moon Virgo: Finding Flow

Full Moon [8 Virgo 57]

– February 27 2021 (08:17 GMT)

This is a Full Moon weekend when the Sun in Pisces opposes the Moon in Virgo. The King & Queen of the planetary line-up gaze at one another from different sides of the zodiac.

Virgo v. Pisces

During the Virgo Full Moon, there’s often a sense of busy-ness, when you want or need to be productive and get things done – Virgo’s realm. Yet, at this Full Moon, the Sun is joined by Venus in Pisces, the planet of love, art & beauty.

You can imagine the Sun & Venus whispering to the Moon in Virgo across the zodiac – give in, surrender, let go.

What will bring you fulfilment now? You may choose to devote yourself to a creative, romantic, spiritual or caring activity this weekend. You may choose to let go and rest deeply and find a spa bath, a warm sea or a fantasy world to lose yourself in.

Whereas Virgo’s ruling planet Mercury enjoys the busyness of the mind, Pisces’ modern ruler Neptune wants to go with the flow, be intuitive and tap into the sensitivity of nature through dreams and imagination, not words.

Both points of the Virgo/Pisces axis are highlighted now. Through the confusion of ideas, thoughts and feelings which emerge, your goal is to find a route to clarity, efficiency, order.

Yet, there might be another way, one that’s connected to not knowing, being willing to go wherever life leads, to surrender to life rather than try to direct it the way you choose.

The Law of Opposites

Opposite signs in the zodiac have opposite natures and they can learn from each other. Virgo is the sign of analysis, excellent at paying attention to detail. At its best, a perfectionist, orderly & precise; at its worst, a worrier, overly critical & demanding.

At this Full Moon of order (Virgo) v. confusion (Pisces), perfectionism (Virgo) v. go with the flow (Pisces), the first step is to consider what you could let go of, which decisions you can postpone for a while, what’s urgent, what’s not.

There are times when you need to actively download your mind, to stop, to empty out. How can you slow down, relax, chill out? Any activity where you can stop the chatter in your head and tap into your intuitive instinctive nature could be of huge benefit.

While the Full Moon is in Virgo, do get your life in order, attend to your diet, tweak your daily habits, stick to your deadline but don’t try and order your life so meticulously that there’s no room for flow and ease.

If you’re trying to ‘do it all’, this is the ideal weekend to look at ways of doing things differently. Find your flow.

Here are the areas in your own life which are highlighted by this Full Moon. Read both your Sun sign & Ascendant sign:

  • Aries: Retreat & recuperation v. work, service, health & fitness
  • Taurus: Friends, groups & networks v. self-expression, creativity, children & love affairs
  • Gemini: Career & vocation v. home & family
  • Cancer: Travel & exploration v. busyness close to home, neighbours & siblings
  • Leo: Other peoples’ money & joint resources v. personal possessions & values
  • Virgo: Relationships & one-on-one partnership v. personal goals & self care
  • Libra: Work, service, health & fitness v. retreat & recuperation
  • Scorpio: Self-expression, creativity, children & love affairs v. friends, groups & networks
  • Sagittarius: Home & family v. career & vocation
  • Capricorn: Busyness close to home, neighbours & siblings v. travel & exploration
  • Aquarius: Personal possessions & values v. other peoples’ money & joint resources
  • Pisces: Personal goals & self care v. relationships & one-on-one partnership

Scorpio. Holding in and letting go.

 Scorpio is the other side of Taurus.

Taurus rules over the throat, vocal chords and neck. In this Venus ruled sign, we add substance to the initial  impulse born in Aries.

When our body does Taurus, adding substance is eating. When our wallet does Taurus, adding substance is earning money. When our sense of self worth does Taurus, we take in compliments…  There is always guaranteed substantial growth for your capital with bull energy.

The opposite of input is output. We are tubes. On one end we eat and drink, on the other we piss and shit. This reality is hilarious. (How old is your inner child?)  Even if we think we have outgrown pee and poo times, we have strong emotional roots in this mud…


It’s worth noticing that following the feminine signs is a journey through the digestive track:

After Taurus, the next Yin sign, Cancer, rules over the stomach, then comes Virgo and the intestines…  The glyph of Virgo looks like meandering bowels.

Then Scorpio happens. It is ruled by Mars and we push things out. The glyph looks like Virgo’s with a different ending.

If you’re an ecologist and very fond of the wonderful recycling cycles of mother nature, you won’t be shocked if I tell you that our corpse is somehow the last of our excrements. It is substance that no longer serves us. We leave it  behind as a gift to earth, it will become humus, feed plants… one day the nutrients will find their way back into other people’s plates with renewed vitality. However, for the dying ones and their loved ones, it feels like a big loss.


As for ourselves, we will find our way to the other side of the famous veil… Death is a fascinating reality for those born with Scorpio emphasis.

On our journey through the feminine signs, after Scorpio, only the bones, ruled by Capricorn, will defiantly resist decomposition. Archaeologists in a distant future may unearth them and call us Lucy.

Ultimate dissolution and return to spiritual unity are symbolized by the two fish swimming in opposite directions and next, we will be re-incarnating in Taurus.

So Scorpio rules over death.  There are many deaths, the physical one being a symbol for many other deaths which all consist of “leaving behind”.

It’s not always easy. We often have to grieve, like this little girl I knew. She wanted a new haircut.  She really wanted it. It would make her so pretty! This little princess had beautiful long hair. After it was cut, she looked into the mirror and burst out in tears…

There is no change without loss, loss is inevitable, nothing is permanent. However the tears of a little  girl in front of the mirror are infinitely respectable, and ours are futile on the way to the graveyard….

Taurus is gain, Scorpio is loss. It is not possible to refrain from dying. Life passes through us like a river. We assimilate lessons, digest experiences and release what needs to be, spontaneously or at times with the help of a good shaman-therapist-exorcist. We need to get things out. However, we can’t do it anyhow.

As children we learned to control these things getting out of our bodies. When we were two year old, we found out how to keep the stuff inside, under our control, for a certain amount of time, and to  let it out only at the right place, that is on the pot.

Meanwhile we also learned to say “no”. We were terrible twos. That’s what being anal is about: we were experimenting with power. No I won’t let my poo escape now. No I won’t eat my soup. No I won’t submit to your law. No I won’t tell you where the rebels are hiding. My power. Fuck off.



Scorpio is ruled by Mars, the warrior, and it’s a feminine sign. In Masculine Aries, Mars is projecting its aggressive and assertive fire from inside out. In Feminine Watery Scorpio, the warrior is on the sensitive receiving end, enduring and keeping it all inside: the fear, the pain, the desire to fall onto the ground and cry like a baby, the terror and the rage, the urge to shit one’s pants…

The warrior is keeping all his feelings inside. He looks impassible like Clint Eastwood chewing a cigar under the sun of a spaghetti.

In a more peace and love fashion Scorpio energy pushed to the extreme becomes Jesus Christ on the cross, tortured to death and still speaking with fixed determination the same words of love and forgiveness he did when he could breathe freely.

Less glorious but essentially similar experiences are our lot. We are nailed on the cross of matter. Fears, passions, desires and frustrations, shame, guilt, rage, dark feelings test our souls. Holding in or letting go? We are a battlefield. Demons and angels fight for the throne. (t’s symbolic language).

Demons are instant gratification monkeys. If they are hurt they want to hurt. If they are scared they want to kill. If they feel frustrated they want revenge. If they feel ashamed or guilty, they want scapegoats to make them feel how they feel. Expect bullies, inquisitions and holocausts.

Wise angels don’t deny the need for releasing, as the suffering is real, but it has to happen with consciousness, at the right place and time, without causing harm. Becoming able to cry is a way.

Scorpio is this inner battle. When demons win, the outcome is dirty. When angels surround the throne, peace reigns and it smells like heaven.

There is no victory without deep transformation. There is death and rebirth in the process.

Male sexuality also has to develop the strength of holding in  and the power to letting go at the right moment. Premature ejaculation is a failure in controlling excitation. Erectile dysfunction is the counterpart: an erection, paradoxically, happens when some muscles relax. If they don’t, the thing remains a bit too soft to please. The causes may be physical but they are often emotional, and have, without the shadow of a doubt, great emotional impact. Feelings about self worth are at stake.

I may have had direct experience of female sexuality in other incarnations but I won’t go into details about how it feels intimately here.

However I can say that between men and women the whole game of holding in or letting go is re enacted. Attraction and desire are powers, opportunities to play games. If one can’t help running… the other will make them run. If one can’t let go and become vulnerable, the other won’t open up.


Sexuality is emotional intimacy. If we were all innocent, free from anything we would rather hide, being partners would be the simplest and happiest thing in the world. But once Venus attracted and glued two humans to each other, a man and a woman (in most cases) join, not only their very valued sides, but the whole of themselves… How will they deal with the complicity of their shadows? Egos may have to die…


From birth to death we need to find just the right balance of holding in and letting go, of controlling and going with the flow. It’s important like life and death, like a night of love worth remembering forever, like living proudly with all our shit together.

And of course, we don’t have it all together, hence all the drama.



Pisces Horoscope March 2021

Be More Pisces

It’s all about you as March begins with the Sun in your star sign Pisces until the 20th and popular Venus here until the 21st. Ensure the focus is on your personal goals, make the most of your birthday time of year and have fun and celebrate in style.

When planets are in your star sign, it’s an excellent time to focus on your image and profile and consider how other people see you and how you come across in the world.

For some of you, the strong emphasis on your star sign Pisces will tap you in to your creative or spiritual source. You might be having profound thoughts or find that your imagination is unusually fertile. Go with the flow, listen out for signs and trust in life.

This is an ideal time to tap in to the best side of your Pisces star sign, the world of fantasy and dreams, your compassionate and giving nature.

This month’s New Moon takes place in Pisces on the 13th, a symbol of new beginnings. This could be an outstanding date for you whether you see yourself in a new light or have a major insight into your personal life.

Plus, this New Moon pulls in a stunning Venus-Neptune conjunction on the 14th and this feels especially beautiful and magic.

Venus and Neptune in Pisces are boundless and represent unconditional love. You may channel this love into a close relationship or have a keen desire to care for and help others. See where love leads you. Be open-hearted, generous and inclusive.

Your co-ruler Neptune is active on the 11th and 30th too, emphasising the importance of your star sign. It’s an ideal month to be more Pisces.

Money Moves

There’s major planetary activity later in the month in the fire sign Aries ruling your personal money and what you value highly in life. Hopefully, this turn of direction and fresh energy brings something new your way which boosts your finances.

The Sun enters Aries on the 20th, the day of the Equinox, a symbol of fresh starts. This is the beginning of the zodiac year.

Plus, lovely Venus enters Aries on the 21st. Venus represents the sweet things in life, gifts, treats, all that’s beautiful. This can go two ways. You might receive something special or want to treat yourself and the ones you love. What you give, you receive in return is Venus’ message.

This is confirmed because of a Sun-Venus conjunction in Aries on the 26th and the Full Moon in Libra on the 28th. Libra is the star sign that rules joint finances and shared resources in your horoscope.

Think of this as the natural flow of money and abundance. When the Sun and Moon oppose each other across the heavens on the 28th, this can manifest something special – money and emotions are linked.

Home Dynamics

Also this month, it’s important to consider your home and family life and how that impacts on what you want to do in the world.

This is because action planet Mars moves into Gemini, the star sign at the base of your horoscope on the 4th. Be ambitious about home and family plans.

Yet, Mars in your home and family sector can be argumentative. Perhaps, you have to confront what’s difficult in order to bring things out into the open. Ask for what you want and need and challenge anyone close who’s being difficult or holding you back.

At times, this month’s planetary activity could leave you feeling breathless or out of control. It’s a month when life is likely to speed up as the focus turns towards you.

A Lucky Note

Finally, your traditional planet Jupiter teams up with talk planet Mercury in Aquarius on the 5th. This may coincide with divine intervention, good news or a solution to a personal issue. This could resolve an issue that’s been dragging on since the start of the year.

Aquarius Horoscope March 2021

As March begins, talk planet Mercury is completing its long journey through your star sign Aquarius. Mercury entered Aquarius on January 8th and finally moves on this month on the 15th.

It’s been a slow process because Mercury spent three weeks retrograde, i.e. on go slow in February. Therefore, this month is about second chances and not giving up on a personal goal that means a lot to you.

The luckiest date is the 5th when Mercury teams up with the best planet in astrology, Jupiter in your star sign Aquarius. You may hear good news on or around this date. Alternatively, use this expansive planetary energy to get your message across.

Pisces Season

March is Pisces season and Pisces rules your personal money sector. The Sun is here until the 20th, the day of the Equinox. This is a practical sector of your horoscope but it’s not a logical or practical approach that is likely to do well.

Certainly, you’re wise to keep close tabs on your money but trust your intuition too and listen out for hunches and coincidences.

Practise the law of attraction and believe that what you give you will receive in return. The less egotistical you are around money, the more in flow you’re likely to be.

This is because of Neptune’s influence in Pisces, a key player in March. The dates to note are the 11th, 14th and 30th when Neptune connects with the Sun, Venus and Mercury.

These combinations are creative and great for utilising your imagination and coming up with genius money-making ideas. Feel your way forward while, at the same time, remaining open-hearted.

This is important because Venus, the planet of relating, is in Pisces until the 21st. Venus in Pisces is boundless and giving; it’s a compassionate, kind and caring influence. This would be a good month to raise money for charity or to help out someone in need.

Alternatively, if you’re the one who’s struggling, ask for help. Ensure the flow of money keeps moving and doesn’t get blocked.

The proviso with Neptune is to be wary of a sob story and not to mix emotions and finances. You need to keep your trust antennae on high alert. Learning who you can and can’t trust is significant this month.

The best date is arguably the 13th when there’s a New Moon in Pisces, a symbol of new beginnings. This is an excellent date to launch a new financial initiative, improve your income or earnings and be clever with your cash.

Find Your Voice

Late March is a positive time to use your connections, teach others and pass on what you know. Sharing ideas and brainstorming can be productive. This may involve going back to school, taking a test or exam or passing new qualifications.

This is because the sign of Aries is prominent from the 20th onwards, the day of the Equinox. This the date that the Sun enters Aries, the first sign of the zodiac.

In your horoscope, Aries rules communication, also education. It’s about your community, siblings and neighbours. Reach out to other people. This is when your voice can make a difference, so speak up and speak your mind

In fact, you may find that you can’t stop talking with this planetary influence and you have a lot to say. You may be putting the world to rights, especially around the Full Moon on the 28th, which cuts across the Aries-Libra axis of the zodiac.

This is about foreign connections, what’s happening out in the world. If you’re a typical Sun Aquarius, you want to play your part within society, politics or your community. Have your say, find your voice and join in with your tribe to make a difference.

The planet of relating, Venus, enters Aries on the 21st. Look out for contacts who can help you. Create new friendships, and gravitate towards people of like minds.

Improve your knowledge and use your ideas to benefit others. Talking to other people could be mind-blowingly exciting for more than one reason in the last ten days of the month.

Love & Passion

Love too is on the agenda because Venus is the planet of love. When she’s striding through Aries, she’s a strong and direct influence. If you’re keen on meeting someone new, take the initiative, ask someone out and go get what you want.

Also, passion planet Mars is stirring up excitement in your fellow air sign Gemini, ruling romance, from the 4th onwards. There’s a thrill of the new about love and relationships. This isn’t the tried and tested route. It’s innovative and something new that rocks your boat.
