Virgo Full Moon 2013 and Mercury Retrograde
February 25, 2013
The bright light of the full moon in Virgo helps us to see more clearly the road ahead. Difficulties become easier to view and obstacles may appear in plain sight. Opposite Virgo is Pisces on the wheel and thus our connection between thinking and feeling, head and heart, or the physical and spiritual is accented. Other planets in Pisces and closely opposite this full moon are Neptune (spiritual awareness) and Chiron (the wounded healer). Closely opposite but in Aquarius is Venus. Also in Pisces with not much effect on the full moon are Mars and Mercury. This may be too much information with little meaning for most readers. These many influences when summed up may say that knowing self enables knowledge of all.
Mercury is the smallest of our planetary neighbors. It has a distinguished place in astrology as the planet ruling communication. Three times each year its forward motion as it appears to us on Earth seems to stop and turn “retrograde” or go backwards. Astrologers utilize this motion to explain particular aspects of human nature. It is now occurring in the sign of Pisces. Expect to witness varied acts of kindness at random.
