Full Moon Reflections
Happy Full Moon! Full moon is exact today, Monday March 9th at 10:47 am PDT.
Full moon time can bring much stirring in our internal and external worlds. You may notice your mind racing, it’s hard to sleep, certain subjects just won’t go away. What is lit up for you?
Every month, the full moon occurs in an astrological sign. (For those of you who want to dive deeper into what astrological signs are in relation to time and our orbit around the sun, you can check out this handout I created for my online astro class.) This month, the full moon is in the sign of Virgo. Virgo is associated with the body, with grounding ourselves in the here and now of our own living temple. Virgo is also associated with the Wise Woman, the herbalist or Witch, one who knows how to align with nature for effective results.
Virgo is connected with the harvest and also specifically with the intestines. Virgo full moon is a great time to go easy on the stomach, do a cleanse or something healing and soothing for your guts. Virgo full moon is also an excellent time to look at what you are harvesting in your life. Where are you invested? What are the energetic dividends on that investment? Is it right for you? Or time to upgrade?
A few full moon reminders:
–If you can, give yourself time and space for quiet reflection. What is lit up is an opportunity for you to create more clarity by observing it with curiosity. So many times I’ve seen huge subjects come up at full moon that have been buried in my subconscious. The more I pay attention and harmonize with the process—what life is pointing me towards observing—the greater the reward of insight, growth, and inner peace.
–Full moon is also the time to release what is being lit up. Creating an altar or having a simple living ceremony where you write down what you are releasing and burn it can be effective and cathartic at this time. So can setting your intentions for what you would like to clear and release in your life over the next two weeks of the waning moon cycle.

Wishing you a wonderful Full Moon filled with deep clarity and health!
