End a Cycle, Clean up: Full Moon in Virgo


Full Moon in Virgo

February 25, 2013

On February 25, 2013 we will be transiting to a Full Moon in Virgo at 7 degrees in Virgo. Those that will be affected with the Full moon Virgo early born Virgo’s which is first 10 days in the sign of Virgo, including those that have the sun, moon or influencing planets in Virgo.

Native Americans call this moon a cleansing moon this most likely due to two full moons in February and March.   It’s also known as the hunger moon due to hunting becomes very difficult in many cases it is also called the snow moon because the snow falls are the heaviest during the month of February as we had seen in New York and North east regions.

As we transit through this earth moon careful consideration is needed since Mercury Retrograde is in its full force until March 17 when it begins to move forwards in motion.  Read more about it here. This means that we need to take extra time driving, and being very careful with our composure.  Perhaps the only positive thing during this full moon would be when Venus enters Pisces.  This could mean spiritual love, or a deeper understanding of spirituality.



The temperatures are now warming up and the birds are now flying back north.  This brilliant full moon demands our attention. The full moon is a period of endings and bringing a new phase into our lives. This means to research and evaluate life and find where there can be a balance between our needs and wants. Recognize people in your life as well as relationships can be quite significant at this time. There is a great need to share, and merge ideas of a higher plane and bring to this world the inner nature and outer personality through abilities to give what can be given.

The influence of this Full Moon is going to be especially challenging for those who are born on the full moon, or mutable sign.  If you birthday falls within the first 10 days before of the Virgo calendar this will have a great impact on the natal sun having to juggle time between home and career.

During this marvelous full moon reaching goals is our first priority. Strip yourself of all marginal roles, doubts, and insignificant pursuits, and dive into the ocean of light permeate all existence.  Like a grain of sand that dissolves in the vast sea, release your individual ego into the infinite embrace of divine awareness. Breathe in light; breathe out light. Feel the cells of your body become incandescent and lucid with the all-pervading glow of God. Allow the heavy burdens of the past months to drop away.



According to Vedic philosophies with the moon in Virgo there are tendencies of hesitance or misperception at the same time being very collective and rational.  Since Virgo is ruled by mercury there is a greater need to exchange rather than dream.  There is a need of setting strong standards by being ornate and being prejudice. There may be a need to be thorough within the home just in time for spring cleaning. Through this moon perhaps there may be even some exhaustion to the numbers of project that are taken on.  There also tendencies of feeling sick even through the energies of the psyche.

The Moon in Virgo brings a time for finding refuge of realism, exploration, and competence.  Everything must be procedural and cataloged. Due to Virgo’s disposition there is tendency to worrying and cantankerous. However, if there is appreciation this all goes away. This is a good time to complete projects, particularly smaller scale projects that require organization and attention to detail. Due to Virgo’s association with health, food and fitness may be concerns during this time. Also, people may be withdrawn as they are absorbed and intellectual pursuits. Critical thinking is emphasized, and caution needs to be taken to avoid being too precarious or hypercritical.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, as is Gemini.  While the Moon is in Virgo, it also a good time for academic pursuit, but not it is better for those requiring serious details rather than inventiveness.  This is a good time for taking care of any matter that requires scrupulous attention.  People may become nervous and retrieving with Moon passing through Virgo and will tend to be judicious, hard to please and even overly critical at times.


You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.

The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Virgo moon is:

“Om Eim Saraswatiyei Swaha”

(Om I’M Sah-Rah-Swah-Tee-Yei Swah- Ha)


This mantra invokes energy for making any projects fruitful and successful.

The intention of this mantra is the to keep up in balance from loosing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy


Also remember Mercury Retrograde ghost period.. is here and therefore to bring serenity in communication the mantra that should be recited until March 30, 2013 and that mantra is:

“Om Buddha Ya Namaha

(om Bud Daha Ya Na Ma Ha)


This mantra brings peace and tranquility which things become erratic in communication and travel.

These times can be very crucial and perhaps March 16 through the 25th of March can be quite intense.  It is my recommendation that a follow up in-depth reading on the self may be taken into consideration.   If you have not had a reading done in some time I would suggest you do so now.  Especially if you are a mutable sign or have any planets in (Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, or Sagittarius).

In addition please note I am not an astrologer nor do I claim to be however, celestial transformation is the ground work for Vedic readers.  In addition to Vedic reading I would recommend that you speak to my recommended Astrologers, and their link can be found here.   Each astrologer has a unique delivery and I would suggest you visit their site and see what you discover.  You will be amazed at their skill and abilities of understanding the transformational transits in your chart.

I wish you the most peaceful journey through this full moon and know I am always a phone call away.
