Let your work heal you. Ground you. Get you together.
Let your work form you. Inform you. Fill up your empty.
Let your work find you. Guide you. Give you what has been missing.
Let it bring you what nothing else has ever been able to. Let it give you a place to sort out the unholy acts that have been done against you. Let it give you a place to make your peace with all that has been at war with you. Let it give you solace where there has only been sorrow. Let it give you strength where there has only been misinterpretation of you.
Your work is your altar. Your savior. Your great initiation.
Messy and determined. Specific and symbolic. Relentless and forgiving. Your work is your way through. And it awaits you. Hunts you. Hounds you. Howls for you.
Do not leave it desperate for you.
Go to it. Go through all you have to get through to get to it. Go towards all that helps you develop it. Go to any length to make it feel at home. Loved. Adored. Anointed.
Serve it. Like it is your greatest blessing. Like it is your most sacred task. Like it is the gateway to everything that has been withheld from you.
On Sunday, March 12th at 7:54 AM PT, the full moon will arrive at 22° of Virgo.
Virgo is blessed with the ability to serve. The ability to work. The ability to make a masterpiece out of a mess. Virgo is blessed with a relentless drive to get it right. To get it working. To get it to those who need it. Virgo is blessed with the ability to see what doesn’t fit. What doesn’t add to the situation. What doesn’t lift up the meaning of what it is making. Virgo is blessed with the natural ability to understand the systems of the body. To trust nature. To tune into the rhythms of life. Virgo is blessed with the desire to heal. To eliminate what is toxic. To digest and integrate what will restore it to health. Blessed with the knowledge that sincere efforts help to assuage our anxieties, Virgo knows that using its abilities is imperative to experiencing any kind of calm.
This full moon sits in a square to Saturn. Saturn is stern. Serious. Withholding. We don’t have control over what is given to us. All we have is the ability to make room for what we want. All we have is the choice to dedicate ourselves to what we most want to make real. All we have is the effort we put towards progressing with what we’ve got to work with.
This full moon is ruled by Mercury. Mercury is in Pisces, the sign of its detriment. The sign it has the most difficulty in. The sign it swims around in, trying to make sense of the facts that it has gathered. Imagining poetic possibilities. Moving beyond what reality has offered up. Transgressing the testimonies of those that can’t imagine a world beyond the known.
Mercury is also squaring Saturn. Exact on the day of the full moon.
This full moon sits opposite Chiron, The Wounded Healer. The healing comes as it needs to. We cannot force it. We cannot contort ourselves into it. We can only journey through the process of it. The curriculum of it. The consequences of it.
The sun, in Pisces, sits in conjunction with Chiron, illuminating the healing nature of Virgo’s work. We must tend to the details in order to serve the sum total of our soul.
This full moon sits in a trine to Pluto. Good work transforms us. Through incremental efforts. Through precise intentions. Through giving way to what is greater than us.
The work of this full moon is to let ourselves be defined by our efforts, not by what hasn’t been offered us. We alone are in control of what we offer. We alone will either master or misuse our talents. We alone will either offer our best to the gods we serve, or offend those gods that wish to serve us.
Let your work be your offering. Let the full moon inspire your most precise efforts. Knowing that your work is here to serve the whole. From your fiery soul to the entirety of humanity. Offering it without reservation and with every effort you can muster.
Full moon blessings,
