Full Moon in Virgo: February 2024
Full Moon in Virgo: February 24 2024, 4:30 a.m. PST
The New and Full Moon come in pairs, in the opposite signs of the Zodiac. But, there is usually a quality these opposite signs share. For Pisces and Virgo, it’s all about healing, and finding the balance between discernment and unconditional acceptance.
In the Lunar Cycle, the Full Moon is the time to celebrate your accomplishments and give gratitude for the good in your life. It doesn't matter if your accomplishments feel like baby steps. Acknowledge them! Celebrate! This will energetically align you to receive more success and blessings on your journey. And, once you've taken some time to acknowledge and celebrate your progress and any help you might have received on your journey, set your intentions to release what no longer servers you.
This Full Moon, in Virgo, is the best time of the year to release perfectionism, tendency to judge or be critical of yourself (or others), feeling like you're never good enough, unhealthy habits, excessive weight, and the clutter that doesn’t serve you (emotional or physical).
Imagine your inner critic shrinking until it's an inch tall and speaks in such ridiculously high-pitched voice that you just can't take it seriously. Or put it in a bubble and send it out of the window.
While you get the best results if your New and Full Moon intentions are aligned with the astrological sign of the Moon, you’re not limited to these areas – anything that is not working is fair game to be released!
Then, at the next New Moon (March 10), make intentions for new beginnings. Replace what no longer serves you with what you want to attract: that’s the base principle of working with Lunar Energies.
- Set aside about 30 minutes within 24 hours of the time of the Full Moon.
- Prepare your space. You will need to focus on your intentions. It may help to light a candle and burn some incense. A black candle is traditionally associated with removing things from your life, but a white candle will work as well.
- Spend a few minutes writing in your gratitude journal (or simply make a list of what you’re grateful for). This is IMPORTANT! Don't skip this step. By aligning with the energy of gratitude, you're inviting more blessings into your life.
Then focus on what you want to release (behaviours or circumstances that don’t serve your goals). Truly FEEL your intentions. Feel the lightness in your soul as your thinking mind gets out of its overdrive. Isn't it nice to know that the Universe got your back? That you don't have to drive yourself to high levels of anxiety by trying to anticipate and prepare for every single eventuality under the sun (which Virgo can do?)
- Keep repeating your intentions over the next two weeks, until the New Moon on March 10. No more self-doubts. You're leaving them behind on this Full Moon in Virgo!
