"Virgo is the powerful sign of the Goddess, perfect unto herself. This energy is a reminder that we each carry a gift waiting to be discovered. The world is waiting to embrace our talent once we are ready to give it. The key, though, is feeling good enough to share our gifts with the world without fear or hesitation."~Spirit Daughter

Full Moon in Virgo | Saturday 2/24/24 at 4:30 a.m. PT

"The current lunar cycle reaches its peak this week when the Moon is exactly opposite the Sun in the sky, at 4:30 a.m. PST (1230 UT) on Saturday, February 24. At that time, Luna will be positioned at 05°23´ Virgo, opposing the Sun at the same degree of Pisces.

A Full Moon always requires that we find a way to balance the qualities of two very different signs, that we moderate between two polarities of expression. In this lunation, the Sun in transcendent Pisces promotes a more creatively imaginative, "go with the flow" approach to life, and assures us that spiritual surrender is key to navigating this reality. At the same time, the Moon in analytical Virgo compels us to focus on practical matters, reminding us that paying attention to details can be essential. To successfully navigate the energies of this Full Moon, we must not only observe the forest from above, we must also walk through that same forest and focus on the individual trees along the trail."

"Virgo’s keen sensibility for streamlining and making sense out of a mess harkens back to the profound wisdom of the earth itself. Virgo wants to find efficiency because it is the most intelligent option. Virgo wants to find the home for all things lost. Virgo understands the innate order, the flawless mathematics and the subtle splendor of organisms at work. Nothing in nature is wasted. Nothing is without a purpose.

None of us are.

Knowing that we are of this earth, born from the wise order of the universe, is enough to know that nature doesn’t make anything without a purpose. If we are here, nature has called us here for a reason. That reason is our responsibility to discover but we can have faith that the reason fits like a crown of glory around our soul.

You are the perfect you. Don’t break yourself to fit in."

Treasure Your Unique Talent | Crystals for the Full Moon in Virgo

“Everybody is talented because everybody who is human has something to express.”
~ Brenda Ueland, Journalist and author of If You Want to Write: A Book About Art, Independence and Spirit (1938)

The Full Moon brings with it a swing-dancing balanced opposition between the Moon in Virgo and the Sun in Pisces. With Pisces' dreams of utopia and amorphous possibilities, and Virgo's ability to bring what was once vague and craft it into the precise and concrete, amazing feats of creation are possible.

We recognize the complementary nature of so-called "opposites," and the beauty that becomes possible when we combine our unique gifts.

Open-Eyed Grounding | Become Rooted in the Earth

"Look at the earth crowded with growth, new and old bursting from their strong roots hidden in the silent, live ground, each seed according to its own kind...

Each one knowing what to do, each one demanding its own rights on the earth.

So artist, you too from the depths of your soul...let your roots creep forth, gaining strength."
~Emily Carr

"Grounding is the basic practice that begins every ritual, and the tool that helps us stay calm and present in any tense situation. Grounding means being relaxed but alert, energetically connected to the earth but able to move, present and aware, in a state in which we can take in information and make conscious choices about what to do.

You can do this exercise anywhere. Ideally, you should be outside, standing on the earth, in some natural place. But you can also do it indoors or in the midst of a city.

Stand in a comfortable position, with your feet about shoulder-width apart, your knees lightly bent. Stretch and release any tension. Take some long, deep breaths into your belly. Feel your feet on the ground.

Tell yourself that just by breathing and feeling your feet on the ground, you can bring yourself into a calm and grounded state.

Imagine that, like a tree, you can extend roots into the earth, from your feet and the base of your spine. With your eyes open, notice if what you see changes as you extend your roots down.

If there is anything clouding your awareness or interfering with your ability to be present, take a deep breath and imagine letting it go down through your roots into the earth, to become compost.

Feel the living fire deep in the heart of the earth. Breathe some of that energy up through your roots, into the base of your spine and your belly, up your spine as if your spine were the flexible trunk of a tree. Feel it warm your heart and throat, and reach out through your arms and hands. Let it move up through the top of your head and out like the branches and leaves of a tree. Let those branches come all the way down to touch the earth, surrounding and protecting you. Again, notice what changes.

Feel the sunlight (or moonlight or starlight) on your leaves and branches, and breathe in. Feed yourself on the energy, just as a tree feeds on sun. Draw it down through your head, heart, hands, and belly, down through your feet into the earth. Look around you and notice what you see, hear, small, and feel in your grounded state."
