The Full Moon is on Friday, March 18 at 2:17 a.m. CDT in 27° Virgo. This is a time when we find ourselves drawn to the details in life. Sometimes it is breaking down a large volume of information into smaller chunks in order to more easily digest the material. Sometimes it is taking our big (and often overwhelming) projects and begin with the tiniest essential next step in order to get going.
Full Moon in Virgo can also bring a focus on health and nutrition. Neptune in Pisces opposing the Moon can make us over-idealistic, looking for some type of perfection in our food choices. Instead of radical changes, try to improve food decisions over time. To improve your food on a subtler level, consider adding a prayer, blessing or thought of gratitude before eating.
The Vernal Equinox is on Sunday, March 20 at 10:33 a.m. CDT with the Sun at 0° Aries. This can be considered the beginning of the astrological year. Affirm and visualize your highest goal for the year ahead.
I was so sad to hear that astrologer Alan Oken recently passed from this earthly existence to the next. He was a light on the path of astrology through his writings and teachings. His books were part of my early studies back in the 1970s. He brought both the mystical and the practical into his talks and seminars. Here is an interview with Alan via The Astrology Podcast done in 2019.
