Monday’s Virgo Full Moon is the Perfect Time for Detoxification, Catharsis and Release


bekah finch turnerVirgo Full Moon Monday, February 22, 2016 @ 10:20 am Pacific

The full moon came quickly this month! The sun has shifted from high-minded Aquarius to dreamy Pisces. Pisces’ partner in the skies is mutable earth Virgo.

Mutable signs come at the end of a season versus Cardinal, who arrive at the start, and Fixed, that hold the middle. Mutable energy is carried by Pisces (water), Gemini (air), Virgo (earth), and Sagittarius (fire).

Pisces fluidity prepares the way for Aries initiating torch. This Virgo full moon comes within the Pisces cycle to highlight where in our bodies we need to allow the cleansing Piscean waters to flow and wash away the debris of the past month, the past year, and even beyond.

The new moon following this full moon is an eclipse. New moon eclipses often signify strong new beginnings, making Virgo’s task even more urgent around purification.

As we enter this weekend, I encourage a detox of the body, home, car, garden, anything in the physical realm.

We are dancing between the elements of earth and water with the sun/moon, so utilise them in your quest for cleansing.

Sweat it out in a sauna, yoga/dance class, or under the sun on a hike or tending your yard. Drink lots of water and detoxing teas and tonics. Eat plenty of fruits and veggies or if you can safely fast, this would be a healing time. Purge and clean inside and out.

Sit in meditation with the moon and ask your body what it is holding on to and how can you let it go?

This is a potent phase for true catharsis and release. Listen to your body, honor it as a temple ready to be purified for ceremony. We can only begin to grasp the changes that have occurred since 2012. The Virgo Full moon is our chance for surrender and renewal. Let go and go with the flow.

    Wow, how awesome! We (wife and me) didn’t know about this until after-the-fact, but we “accidentally” prepared for it anyway and this week is being awesome for us. Thank you for the heads-up on the upcoming New Moon, we will consciously prepare for it. We are both moon-children (Cancer) – my sun sign and her moon sign (yes we are perfect for each other). Blessings!
