Full Moon in Virgo, Total Lunar Eclipse, Feb 20th, 2008, 10:26-31pm EST

THE SOLUTION IS TO TRUST IN THE MYSTERY-FEEL YOUR PRAYERS IN YOUR BODY AND ALLOW YOURSELF TO OPEN TO NEW SOLUTIONS TO GROUND THEM IN REALITY

USE INNER FOCUS TO COMMIT TO HEALING SELF AND SOCIETY (Sandra Pastorius-WeMoon Calendar)

Who is the new you imagined and prayed for at the new moon? The gift of this new moon was an expanded perception of your reality. There was an opportunity to open to a new way of perceiving an old situation. The annular eclipse allowed for powerful release of old limiting beliefs about your relationship to the community and how you fit into and cooperate with the community of humankind. What was your desire? Remind yourself of your new moon desires.

These desires have had to weather the storms of reality as we approach the Earth-y Virgo Full moon. The new moon is a rebirth. The new part of you is na├»ve, inexperienced, innocent…like a child…unaware of the deeper dynamics that shape reality. (Are you aware that you are creating your experience/your reality with your beliefs?) The seed planted will only bear fruit with attention and nurturing. I do hope you all had the opportunity to feel and nurture the purity/innocence of your new moon desires. If you felt it, the feeling became your prayer; regardless of your experiences this cycle, the innocent prayer was heard by your higher self and the Universe. Now, how do you ground it in reality?

Well, you have to get out of your own way. The waxing moon has shed light on your true relationship with the community. It has revealed where we’re strong and where we’re struggling. If we believe someone is to blame for our struggle, we still have work to do (My personal message is to be the change I want.) Hopefully the waxing moon is revealing the beliefs that shape your reality. Are they working for your desires or against them? The Virgo full moon calls us home to the truth, our Selves, our body, our Virgo Priest/Priestess. And it does so like Coyote, like Trickster. Allow the full moon to turn your beliefs on their heads. Think outside the box. Ruled by Mercury, the path of growth for Virgo is from self deception and criticism of self/the other -> deep self knowledge, acceptance of self/other and discernment…the ability to pick and choose what feeds and nourishes your dreams in reality, in your body. You will know because you will feel it. The truth is in the body in the feelings.

Now, this is the last total lunar eclipse until 2010; it’s a culmination of work we’ve been doing the past several years and will require some integration time. This means it’s BIG!!! There are two release points in your chart to consider: 2 degrees Virgo and it’s opposition 2 degrees Pisces. Here are there Sabian Symbols for your consideration:

2 degrees Virgo
A LARGE WHITE CROSS, DOMINATING THE LANDSCAPE, STANDS ALONE ON TOP OF A HIGH HILL

And

2 degrees Pisces
A SQUIRREL HIDING FROM HUNTERS


I believe the message here is: Do you believe you must sacrifice your needs for the collective? Does that work? Does it actually serve? Do you serve from guilt and fear or love-self love and love for the other? Do you know the difference? Do you want to?

In light of it’s opposition: Do you sacrifice your Self (the highest expression of your Divine Self) because your feel overwhelmed by the power of the collective dream/nightmare? Do you feel small in relation to the collective dream/nightmare? What do you do about that? Are you in love or fear? This is a possible interpretation of the potential release of this eclipse. But on this Virgo Full Moon, awaken your inner Priest/Priestess and meditate on the Sabian symbols yourself to discover, in your body, the truth of it for yourself.

Peace, love, blessings, joy, Helen
