Supermoon in Virgo/Leo
February 19, 2019
As the groundhog predicted it will be an early spring, then why does it seem like the winter has just began? Yet think, in one month and one day from February 19, 2019, the beautiful spring equinox will usher another seasonal change.
The cool Hunger Red Super moon will blast our skies, waking us all up for a few days, just to put us back to sleep again. This will be one of the largest super moons in 2019, and the brightness of its beauty will grace us at approximately, 10:53am EST and 7:53 am PST time. VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) have always claimed that a full moon brings luck and prosperity, and it always marks an auspicious time for religious ceremonies.
According to the ancient theories, sidereal not tropical, this is also a Leo moon. However, the eminence of Virgo is present and very active during this time. Therefore, this energy will lead us into discussions and changes within the home and workplace. Could it be that we are in for another shut down or will there be a compromise? If there is a compromise, let’s hope it will last, because the energy of the ghost period of Mercury retrograde, which also begins on the same day, could cause confusion and at its worse, force us back to the drawing table in the middle of March (Read more here)
Nevertheless, this is a time to plant karmic seeds for all those that have a placement of Cancer and Capricorn in their chart. This will be the last full moon, or rather, most auspicious time for forgiveness. Rahu and Ketu are both planets of past and present karma, therefore, anything that may have happened, good or bad, was, and is, karmically driven. Depending upon the placement, this is where there were unexpected and unforeseen issues which triggered something to bring forth what must change.
Recall all the issues from July of 2000 through March 2002. What did you take with you? How did you apply it for the past two years, Dear Cancer and Capricorn? One cannot, however, put these two signs in a single box as it was a collective change. Thus, it’s time to think back at everything.
The experiences of Rahu/Ketu can be detrimental to the longevity and outlook of everyone’s life. Perhaps these experiences can be shared with your fellow Gemini and Sagittarius as they too now pay the consequences of their actions. Whatever you can remember, you can be sure similar situations are bound to occur, and with them, you must apply what you have learned so your actions appease the cosmos, not the other way around. For Gemini and Sagittarius, rewind to November 2009 through June 2011; the situations may be so similar that it will be eerie.
Often, history must repeat itself to make sure that we don’t keep repeating the same mistakes over and over. This moon is predictive to the situations which are same as they were at the exact time in 2000. Something powerful may have been happening behind the scenes for some earth signs. Possibly it was unrealistic, or uncertain, then the answers could have come very clearly to you around the 7th-9th of February. This may have a lot to do with your work, money, career, family, as well as what your future may hold.
Perhaps this full moon will also be transmuting where it is a chance to nurture, change and advance. To assist in getting rid of access negative energy as well as baggage we all hold on to. The pull of the energy you experience could be good or bad, but if you take a modest and spiritual path all will work out in your favor.
Nevertheless, as we move through the icy winter, the cold weather suits its name correctly this time as the northern hemisphere of this moon is named as the Snow moon; however, I don’t feel that it will suit the southern hemisphere as much for it is known as the Grain moon. Often, it has been theorized that the full moon energy can be felt as early as 7 days before and 7 days after.
The slushy, wet, and cold winter hit us hard, causing wipe outs and near misses on the road on February 12, 2019. The full moon, no matter how boundless or small, is very favorable to the Hindu culture as it is also known as Poonam.
Full moon is Pournami which is usually considered very peaceable and heavenly. In the Gita (Old Scriptures) it is said that God’s full moons are created for spiritual development. The lunar rays and solar rays aid our souls and implement these important rituals. Additionally, those who help create or write the Vedas (scriptures from God) to be read by humans were all born on a full moon, therefore, they should be worshiped as such.
This full moon in Leo/Virgo may be considered very heavy. It brings up lessons that we should have learned in the past and how we continue to repeat the errors that cause us, and our family, harm. Think of the texture of the Earth after there has been a fire.
However, if you are a mutable sign, especially Virgo or an Earth sign, it may be worthwhile for you to take that spiritual journey. It won’t hurt as you, and those with Virgo in their charts, will be affected by this full moon. Leo’s will also be going through something significant. Therefore, by proxy all mutable signs (Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, and Sagittarius) as well as Fire Signs (Leo, Aries or Sagittarius) will find something auspicious to experience or something that is being closed for something new to begin.
Consider the next 6 months as a test, dear Virgo’s and Leo’s. It is about what changes you have made since the new moon last year in August/September and how the eclipses affected you last year and this year; this is the question that is the most important in your life.
The Full Moon carries a time of brilliance and nascence. It is a period of personal accomplishment, but also a time to study for the deeper meaning in what you’ve created. How can you integrate your dream into the world for the greater good of all? The Full Moon impulses you to distinguish and honor the significance of the “other” – other people, other ideas, and other values.
Due to Leo/Virgo energy, relationships are of great importance at this time, and you feel a need to share, to merge, and to partner, whether lovingly or through other channels. You are called upon now to work toward attaining stability – balance of your inner nature and outer personality, balance of your need to take with your ability to give; the balance of your ultimate ideals with what is possible in the world.
Detach yourself of all external roles, worries, and insignificant quests, and dive into the ocean of light, soaking in all life. Inhale in light; exhale out light. Feel the cells of your body become incandescent and luminous with the powerful glow of God. Allow the substantial problems of the past months to drop away.
The Moon in Virgo carries a time of realism, scrutiny, and competence. People may feel more diligent and detail-oriented. As a result, this is a good time to complete plans, mainly smaller scale projects that need organization and attention to detail. Due to Virgo’s association with health, food and fitness may be a concern during this time. Also, people may be wary as they are absorbed in thought and academic pursuits. Because serious thinking is highlighted, caution needs to be taken to evade being too serious or condemnatory.
Every month emphasizes a certain Astrological sign, thus I will bring to you general propensities which could assist making the transition from full moon to new moon as smooth as possible so that each step is spiritual.

This will be a year to remember. You will have some challenges, but you overcome any hurdles with a smile on your face. The more you succeed in your career growth the more bliss you will feel inside. Now you will realize the need to put public interest first in your life. You will soon be given opportunities to act as a mediator and you will receive assistance from the higher ups. You will soon discover what is causing your subordinates’ dissatisfaction. If there any building renovations that go wrong, you may become unnecessarily upset. You may have difficulties with women in the work place. You may have a difficult time trusting people. But be aware that mercury retrograde may put some dampers on your plans
Saturn: April 2019-Sept 2019. Saturn is in Sagittarius, this means it won’t be rosy, nor will it be dull. There is a good possibility you may have a career relocation and finally get into the profession of your dreams. However, you will have some opposition from rivals. The opposition is nothing you cannot handle and as your year progresses, your social circle will give you all the appreciation you desire. On the other hand, things that may have happened in the past may cause you to feel distressed resulting in feeling lonely with a lack of support from family members. A huge prospect of work and career is possible.
Ketu – Since Ketu is changing signs as of March, you will now analyze your reactions to things, which may cause you to feel very empty in some areas of married life. Don’t doubt loved ones. Think before you invest. You may lack focus.
Ketu: March 30, 2019-. You need to be on the lookout for illnesses to your close relatives. You may work harder with more on your plate than you know what to do with. Because of exhausting overworked issues, you may miss important family dates and celebrations. You may be over stressed and may feel discontent. This could cause your expenses to be more than what you are bringing home.
Rahu – there is a change of sign in March, therefore this prediction reflects everything until March 30, 2019. You will overcome challenges through vigor and focused professionalism. Your financial situation looks good. However, you may have health issues, which you will overcome, and any legal issues will go in your favor.
Rahu: March 30, 2019-. You will have financial increases and will be able to bring in more resources from other avenues. However, due to work demands you may not be able to spend quality time with your loved ones. Do not take short cuts when it comes to your finances as they will result in more difficulties than anything else.
Uranus: Aug 2019. You will now go back to the actions of your past and realize you were tougher on yourself than you needed to be. You will recognize how you were able to overcome things in your life and it’s time to stand up for yourself. It is time to take out the journal and write down new ideas.
Jupiter – There will also be a change of signs at the end of March. Now is the time to adapt and alter the way you communicate your ideas and thoughts to people; you will soon realize that they are listening. You could also get rid of old material things and replace them with the latest and greatest. You will soon get distinction in society. Your thoughts are provoking, and brilliance comes from out of the blue.
Jupiter: March 30, 2019-. You may undergo stress which means you must take good care of your health and not let go of your health regime. A balanced diet and daily exercise will help you in moving forward with freshness and vibrancy.
Mars: March 30, 2019- Be careful of your health and avoid minor quarrels with your partner. You may feel that you are not getting the support you need in your career or profession. Your temper may rise and most of all, you may be accident prone where you are no looking both ways before crossing.
This is a blissful year for you if you can recognize that you cannot be perfect at everything and you have higher expectations on yourself than others do. Move forward and be optimistic. Be careful, however, around August that you don’t invest incorrectly. Do not neglect family and take care of the ones you love. Try to not bring work home and control a conflicting situation. Be careful of neighbors; don’t raise your voice and you will get further by maintaining a distance.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, as is Gemini. While the Moon is in Virgo it also a virtuous time for educational pursuits, but not it is better for those challenging serious details rather than unique creativity. This is a good time for taking care of any matter that requires scrupulous attention. People may become shy and retrieving with Moon passing through Virgo and will tend to be sensible, fussy, and even excessively serious at times.
Also starting on the full moon, Mercury will begin to motion backwards, and the most critical time will during mid-March. At that time there could be communication issues and things could break down, so be patient.
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 dependent upon the quality of intention. It is of the utmost importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.
The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. This year there are two mantras, one for those who are just now getting into learning about Sanskrit mantras and those who are fluent.
The mantras for Virgo moon are:
Om Shreeng Aing Sauh |
(Ommm Shreeng Aiiiing Sauhhh)
Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya
This mantra invokes energy for making any plans fruitful and successful.
The intention of this mantra is to keep us in balance and from becoming irritable through obscurity and blurred energy.
Please be cautious to understand that some of this energy can be felt as early as 5 days before the full moon. There can be breakups, confusion, and people can act just plain weird.
May this moon bring you joy, love, and tenderness. Always remember for every ending there is a new beginning.
