Sun is Pisces, 27° 40'
Moon is Virgo, 27° 40'
With the last "winter" moon, this full moon is known as the Snow Moon in North America. We're heading into Spring season (Fall in the South). So while the Sun finishes up in Pisces, we have a full moon in Virgo today. The trends with this full moon are health, healing, and working with others. We may be a bit critical of ourselves or others during this full moon, as we focus on the minutia rather than the global. Its the nature of the moon in Virgo, unfortunately. Those of us born with a Virgo Moon know what this is like.
The Sun is conjunct to Neptune in Pisces and sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. With the Moon, this forms a wedge which can actually be a productive force. We are more likely to find some deeper meaning in our actions and decisions during this full moon. Dreams, goals, and productive objectives help with this.
Mercury in Pisces is conjunct with Jupiter, and sextile to Uranus in Taurus. These contacts bring up some spontaneous thinking patterns and we may find ourselves spinning, trying to keep up with all the thoughts. Sometimes it is better to write down all the ideas rather than trying to rely on our memories. We can come back to them later when our minds are not being bombarded with too many at once, or simultaneously. And there is no way to remember them all at this point.
Venus and Mars are conjunct in Aquarius, forming a square back to Uranus in Taurus. Our financial matters, as well as our typical skills and talents may feel somewhat off balance. The key is to work through them to get the most benefit from this time, as possible. Pushing through helps us to gain new skills and new opportunities to follow up on. Don't be afraid to try new ideas, but don't tie our hopes and dreams onto them. Our energy levels may be all over the map. Some tricks that can help with this are short meditative moments, go for a short walk, and other short focused activities that allow us to take a moment to regroup without burning up too much energy and time in the process. We'll sleep better for it if we release some of the frenetic energy. For this full moon day, Mars is transiting over a critical degree in Aquarius, which activates unpredictability and impulsive behavior. Avoid the unintentional battering of others' ideas and emotions, or we will suffer the long term consequences of their hurt.
Overall, the planets are mostly placed in Earth and Water Element signs, meaning that we are likely to feel more comfortable with introverted concepts. It is not a time of outward change, but ideal for introspective change. The three planets in Aquarius may disrupt this process unless we truly focus on healthy personal goals and boundaries.
