Cosmic Calendar: The Latest
March 6th Friday:
There are no exact aspects today and it feels like a good day to let the after glow of the Full Moon's essence sink in a bit. The Moon has had a very long void period and we will all feel more grounded when the Moon moves into Libra this afternoon at 4:52 PM PST. On a larger scale we are getting ready to put some power into our step once Jupiter moves direct on April 8th. I suggest planning and organizing your summer plans early so that you can get an early jump on this enthusiastic shift. Remember, however, that we must prepare for the Saturn retrograde movement back into Scorpio in mid June through August. I share this because it's best to be prepared….as our plans may move forward in a bright and steady fashion, be aware of this coming period when reflection and deep seated completions will take hold. In planning summer fun and activities be aware of this time period. Yes, a season shift is around the corner….take it easy and enjoy the absolute splendor of the Moon in Libra this weekend.
March 5th Full Moon in Virgo
The Full Moon will occur at 10:07AM Pacific Time and activates 15 degrees of Pisces and Virgo. This opposition requires that we weigh in on the ways intuition and logic intermingle within our psyche. Pay extra attention to selflessness and compassion. Search for new ways to be in Service to others (Virgo) while examining the ways imagination and sacred dreaming play a role in personal visions and affirmation (Pisces.)
Another void moon day runs all the way through March 7th…use this time to shine a light on all that needs clearing, readjusting, and balancing in your life. There is static in the air with a Moon parallel to Mars in the evening. Be mindful of relationship tensions and let go of a need to be right. Play fair and find support for one another. With a Sun aspect to Pluto later in the evening it's your best interest to deal with your own shadow play…..and leave others out of the friction.
Notes on the Full Moon in Virgo:
The Full Moon in Virgo sends a note of healing to the world. Virgo, the maiden healer, shines innocence and purity into the heart of the Sun conjunct Chiron that opposes the Full Moon. Here we have the primordial wounded healer, Chiron, and the Sun, the mighty light of heaven, joining together to send a universal note of healing to everyone.
Whatever you’ve been hiding, whatever you keep as your own secret may be gently released. One cannot hide when the Light of Love insists on Truth. We evolve together when the illusion of separation is eradicated from the ego-mind. Our suffering and pain is one and the same, and until we understand how our own courage to heal is indeed a key toward global peace, we will continue to participate in the insanity of war, cruelty, and oppressive conditions.
This Full Moon invokes the healing of karma, a golden reward available to those who dare to engage with and release a Wounded Part of Themselves. Dane Rudhyar speaks of this eloquently in the Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon:
Full Moon at 15 degrees Virgo:

Keynote; The quintessence of deeds well done
Root strength produces beautiful flowers. The neophyte who acts with determination, courage and discrimination while following ‘in the footsteps; of his predecessors receives a symbolic prize to welcome and celebrate the willingness to have dared to move beyond their past; a past that had blocked and limited life’s progress. The mystic Beloved hands him what she has woven for him out of spiritual threads.
We are offered symbols and rewards for daring to move forward, beyond separation, and this moves us ever closer toward the building of a beautiful and significant CULTURE.
