Virgo Full Moon – Sept 6, 2017
In general, Full moons are times of release. As you think on where you want to be in life, acknowledge what or who maybe giving you the most resistance. One key to releasing anything is to be sure that you mean it. If you aren’t ready just yet, that’s okay. There’s always the next full moon. Once you write a list of what you’d like to release, burn it and flush the ashes. Feel the separation as the smoke rises up and away from you. Embrace your new found freedom.
This reading is for the Virgo Full Moon on September 6, 2017. The decks used for it are the Earth Magic Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer and the Journey of Love deck by Alana Fairchild.
That last New Moon (Aug. 21) took a lot out of you. New moon energy, a second Leo new moon, the lunar eclipse and ongoing Mercury Retrograde most likely had lots of things going on around you, to say the least. This Virgo Full Moon is the time to let all of that go. Mercury is finally coming back out of retrograde, so get ready to communicate fully and truthfully about what you want and who you want it with.
Don’t get comfortable in the chaos that has surrounded you recently. Drop all of that busy and exhausting energy and recenter yourself. This might feel very lonely at first, but what it will also do is help to calm your spirit. Reclaim your focus or develop one once and for all for you…what you want in a relationship – other than “someone”, “physical stimulation”, “some company”. What does a healthy and enriching relationship to you? Don’t just take the next person who comes along into your inner sanctums when they want to act like a bull in a china shop. You’ve done too much work on yourself to let another person who hasn’t done the work on themselves to come mess up your peace.
Keep your heart centered on these goals and start cutting situations and people who don’t match up. Clear the brush so that the one(s) who need/need to see you can do so. For example, when you cut through an older tree and look at the rings, you see that the tree went through various traumas and growth periods. Similarly, we go through cycles as souls within the human experience. Draw strength from the situations that helped pad this past cycle and build on the lessons you learned. Note that this does not mean you should bring all of that baggage with you as doubt, fear or a reason not to invest. Those are ways to extend your current period, not bring about a new one. You must let all of that go if you are to begin building again. It’s truly time to shine, like the swan after the duckling phase. Remember, you have to let go of the fluff and the feelings associated with “ugliness” in order to have room to embrace the beauty that you have grown into. Your outlook on yourself must change if you want others to see the difference as well.
That last New Moon (Aug. 21) may have taken you through some growing pains in your relationships. New moon energy, a second Leo new moon, the lunar eclipse and ongoing Mercury Retrograde most likely had lots of things going on around you, to say the least. This Virgo Full Moon is the time to let all of the confusion that came with it go. Mercury is finally coming back out of retrograde, so get ready to communicate fully and truthfully with your partner(s)about what you want for your future and whether you want it with them or not. You either let go of the drama, or you will be letting go of them. Don’t cling to disruptions.
Remember that you’re still going to have to work for the success of these relationships. You don’t get to stop trying just because you’re now together and/or committed. You may need to shed some of the extra responsibilities you picked up to make sure that you still have time to tend to your relationship. While you definitely still carry your partner(s) in your heart, remember that you need to share and express that to them in their love language as well. If your love language is Words of Affirmation and their love language is Physical Touch, then that’s how you successfully communicate. Give them a massage, hug them more, squeeze a butt cheek! Likewise, they could be putting up little post-it notes on the mirror for you, leaving sweet voice mails or snapchats to remind you they love you or simply letting you know you still look sexy on your way out the door. It’s the small things you did in the beginning that still need to be done today. Take a few moments to reminisce, find those gems, then put them to use!
While you might have gone through some battles lately, if you deal with and put down the ego and hard feelings associated and search for understanding and common ground, you’ll see things aren’t as bleak as you may have previously thought/felt. Find that focus, even when yours may be pulled outside of the relationship because you just need a break. Do you need to separate from the person or from the frustrating situations that you have created together? Get back on track, address the real issues, propose solutions and then work to reestablish the love upon which your relationship was founded.
So Now What?
Breathe. It’s always a lot, but none of this is impossible. Include the hurt and pain that you’re ready to really let go of. Those traumas that you have let lead you into confusion and frustration will go if you insist on it. Are you ready to move on and get out of destructive circles and trends in your romantic lives? Stop going back then. Truly look at the steps you took, take responsibility for your choices and do not accept blame for anyone else’s as you look to forgive yourself and them. Cry, shout, get angry…whatever you need to do to say goodbye to it. Write it on those lists and them watch the blaze they create. See the beauty that comes from your trauma. It’s not the pretty paper and the ink, but it’s the release you get as you watch that physical representation burn to ashes. Put it all down so that you can grab the new blessings headed your way.
