"Assess, analyze, organize, under the intelligent and perceptive Virgo Moon. It’s time to heal, weed, edit, and discern. The vibe is thoughtful, sensitive, health-oriented, compassionate and particular; we need to keep our eyes not on what we want to throw away, but what we want to keep and nurture."~Heather Roan Robbins
"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. We often do not feel worthy or ready to share our magic with others and end up hiding it away. Virgo’s energy in its highest state teaches us that we are always ready, always worthy, and perfect as is.
When Virgo meets the Full Moon, it’s time to release our fear of making a mistake and instead take a leap of faith. The Virgo Full Moon provides us with an opportunity to detoxify ourselves of any thoughts or beliefs that we are not worthy or capable of greatness. It’s a time to shed layers of conditioned patterns that tell us we are not good enough. This Full Moon is a chance to free ourselves from the weight of perfectionism and transform every mistake into a powerful lesson poised to help us evolve."

"March’s full Moon goes by the name Worm Moon. For many years, we thought this name referred to the earthworms that appear as the soil warms in spring. This invites robins and other birds to feed—a true sign of spring!
However, more research revealed another explanation. According to an 18th-century account of the Naudowessie (Dakota), the name Worm Moon refers to a different sort of “worm”—beetle larvae—which begin to emerge from the thawing bark of trees and other winter hideouts at this time.
There are quite a few names for the March Moon that speak to the transition from winter to spring. Some refer to the appearance (or reappearance) of certain animals, such as the Eagle Moon, Goose Moon (Algonquin, Cree), or Crow Comes Back Moon (Northern Ojibwe), while others refer to signs of the season:
~The Sugar Moon (Ojibwe) marks the time of year when the sap of sugar maples starts to flow.
~The Wind Strong Moon (Pueblo) refers to the strong windy days that come at this time of year.
~The Sore Eyes Moon (Dakota, Lakota, Assiniboine) highlights the blinding rays of sunlight that reflect off the melting snow of late winter.
During the Full Moon in Virgo, contact with the subconscious and the unconscious is more intense. Virgo's tarot correspondent is the Hermit, who is on an inward journey to the depths of the Self. To balance this intensity, it may be helpful to work with Howlite, as it is an extremely calming stone.
Judy Hall writes that Howlite links into the spiritual dimensions, opening attunement and preparing the mind to receive wisdom and insights. Placed on the third eye, it opens memories of other lives, while also calming the turbulent emotions that may arise.
In the Motherpeace Deck, the Hermit figure is known as the Crone, and represents "a stage of life in which wisdom is sought--a time of introversion and spiritual seeking. The Crone is a woman whole within herself. Her active inner life shines out to touch others with the wisdom and knowledge she gains on her journey."
