VIRGO FULL MOON: Healing The Healer
The Full Moon arrives at 22 degrees of Virgo on Sunday, March 12 at 10:53 AM EDT.
During this Virgo Full Moon, we have arrived. We find ourselves upon a new landscape, perhaps one in which we are still learning to navigate. We set out for this destination on the Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse two weeks ago. Whatever emerged at that time, has been unfolding both multi-dimension-ally and timelessly into a spiral of events that has left us bewildered, perhaps even shocked. The healing opportunities which have arisen are as deep as the ocean.
As Chiron is the Moon’s faithful companion through this time, the archetype of The Wounded Healer is awakening more fully within us, presenting ever more dramatically those wounds in which we have not fully accepted, embraced and healed. We are like onions being pealed away one layer at a time. Beneath each layer lies yet another layer. We are after all, multi-dimensional beings.
Who among us is not wounded?
The message at this time is that in order to be of healing service to others, we must be in service to our own woundedness. In communing with these wounds, we allow for our own lovely vulnerability; for vulnerability is the doorway to grace.
Virgo is a feminine mutable earth sign, ruled by Mercury. Prominent archetypal themes for the sign of Virgo include The Servant, The Martyr, The Analyst, The Perfectionist, The Angel and The Hermit. While this sign is characterized by purity, the true definition of the word “virgin” is “complete unto oneself.” We are thus graced with enhanced awareness of our quiet strength, for Virgo contains a high measure of personal independence. Virgo reminds us that in order to assist others, we must first assist ourselves; in order to guide others, we must navigate within.
Wherever the Virgo Full Moon falls in your natal chart, wherever Virgo resides, you will experience heightened awareness and illumination of a dimension of yourself that requires quiet attention. It is time to proceed with practical mindful attunement to the task at hand. We know what this mission is, for it was presented to us during the New Moon Solar Eclipse. This Full Moon presents us with the full impact of an irrevocable change that has happened upon us. Now, we must proceed with self-blessing in gentle Virgo fashion leaving no stone unturned.
As we tend to ourselves, Virgo imbues us with a desire to hone our inherent gifts. Virgo attunes us to themes of service, work, health, improvement and perfection. We are reminded of the sacredness that presides over mundane matters.
While it may seem that we never reach the precipice of this perpetual climb, we may fail to see that precious gemstones lie just beneath the surface of our weary feet. Virgo treads lightly upon the earth. Now, more than ever, we must tread lightly with ourselves.
The great Swiss psychologist, Alice Miller, said in her book, The Drama Of The Gifted Child, “The gift is in the wound.”
Get in there and look around. You will be amazed by what you see. You will be honored by who you meet.
We are all miracles unto each other.
Virgo Full Moon Blessings Upon You.
The wound is where the Light enters you. – Rumi –
One can give nothing whatever without giving oneself—that is to say, risking oneself. If one cannot risk oneself, then one is simply incapable of giving.
