Between the recently intense amount of Aquarius energy, Mercury in retrograde, and transition into Pisces season, we could all use some grounding energy right now. Lucky for us, this upcoming full moon is in the sign of Virgo, the Earth maiden of practicality, organization, and structure. This earth sign is here to help us recenter and refocus. Get ready to use this energy to cleanse, organize, release, and reset to live in better alignment with your highest self. Here are some things you can focus on during this full moon.
The Virgo full moon is a great time to make your to-do lists and take care of the things you may have been putting off. Sometimes, our responsibilities can build and feel too daunting to tackle. This leads to feelings of overwhelm and procrastination. This full moon will bring some clarity and motivation to help you tackle the items that you may have been putting on the back burner.
Instead of avoiding, use this energy to empower and show yourself what you can accomplish when you put your energy into a task at hand. Start making your to-do list (if you don't have a running one already) and establish manageable habits and routines. Having the foundation of routines can help you enormously in the long run. Building these lists and routines may even feel a bit daunting, but just remember that starting is the hardest part. Once you find your flow, you'd be amazed at what you can accomplish.
Virgo is arguably the most independent signs of the zodiac. The Maiden does not need anybody but herself and it's truly one of her best assets. All of the planning, structure, analytical thought, and routines she maintains serve to make her the self-sufficient goddess she is. Tackling challenges and problem solving for yourself is an incredibly empowering act.
Think about where in your life you can embrace independence and maybe establish some better habits that can help you be more independent in the long term. Start small by spending some time alone with yourself. Learning more about yourself in this way can help you to discover more about your needs, wants, and goals as an individual. This will also give you insight into things you can incorporate into your life to become a more independent and self-sufficient person.
HEALTH + WELLNESS
Virgo has a deep connection to health, healing, and nourishment. During this full moon, pay attention to what and how you consume. How are your eating and drinking habits? Too much? Not enough? Too much junk food and not enough whole foods? Now is a great time to get in touch with your body and listen to what it needs. Food is medicine. Water is medicine. Eating the right foods and staying hydrated does wonders for the body not just physically, but mentally.
What we consume has a profound effect on our physical and mental wellbeing, and this doesn't just apply to just food! This includes information we take in from social media, the news, our families and inner circles. Pay attention to what and how you consume and make sure that it is in your best interest.
With all of these ideas in mind, it's important to not fall prey to self-sabotage. Virgo energy can easily swing to work against you. Thoughts of perfectionism or becoming too critical/analytical can be detrimental to your growth and empowerment. Be gentle with yourself and remember that it doesn't have to be perfect! Follow your intuition, don't overthink it, and remember that beginning is the most important step.
This spread is centered around The Hermit, the Major Arcana card associated with Virgo. The Hermit is a solitary being who has chosen to self-isolate in search of inner guidance and the highest truth. The Hermit recognizes that they already possess the answers, truth, and knowledge they seek and understand that they just need to be alone, away from the noise and distractions of the world in order to receive it.
Before doing this tarot spread, I encourage you to spend some time alone. Meditate or take a bath so you can walk into the tarot spread with a clear mind. Embody the energy of the Hermit and the Maiden and see what you have to discover about yourself.
