Of course the potential for major earth changes is being played out whether it is Mt. Etna erupting for a third time in 2012 or a devastating Avalanche that killed 37 in Afghanistan. Many sensitives can feel the tug and pull of the earth's shifting plates and others are offering a clarion call that areas like the New Madrid fault in the Midwest is awakening. We are in a time when the human race must catch up with the ascension of the planet.

Even with the awakening of Earth's forces with the Grand Trine, this Full Moon has a distinctly personal feel relating to our own bodies and life paths. We are feeling the polarities between the Northern Hemisphere symbolized by the Moon and Mars in Virgo vs. the Southern Hemisphere where the Pisces Sun/Neptune/Pallas/Chiron reside. Symbolically Virgo tends to gather all that’s been learned and experienced subjectively, using the process of analysis to discover what is useful and then puts it into practice in our individual roads.

In many ways, the Virgo Moon represents a subjective awareness of others strives to improve oneself based on what he/she perceives those in her world judge. Whereas Pisces reflects the big picture of objective awareness of self and strives toward creating space to exist in harmony, based on her knowledge of what ultimately leads to transcendence.

So the next stop is a wild Full Moon in Virgo when we reach a point of assimilation on both a personal, political and evolutionary level.Both a Mutable Grand Cross, Grand Trine and Kite formation add to a hexagram or Star of David. These formation will highlight today’s Full Moon which peaks by March 13th/14th/15th toward the Aries New Moon on March 22nd.
