The full moon has arrived. It ought to be a time to celebrate; however, fear is in the air. The theme of this full moon: emotional intelligence.
This week, the Sun is in Pisces—while the moon is directly opposite in Virgo. It’s a clear example of how brilliant Astrology is, because this opposition is so vivid.
The Sun sign today (Pisces) is a highly sensitive, emotional dreamer—the Moon sign is super practical and almost judgmental of dreams, feelings and their whimsical nature. Together, they create: a practical dreamer, a dynamic duo, two in rapport—no better way to manifest. Feel your feelings, intuit an idea, then apply practicality and manifest. Or as I like to say: womanfest.
I live in a Debra Silverman bubble: a world tightly bound by soft sheets, good food, fresh running water, security, safety and bushels of love brought in in a myriad of shapes.
However… if you sneak into the back room and walk down the dark streets of my mind, you will see bright neon signs flashing: Immigration! Refugees! Presidential campaigns! Politics! Viruses! 5G! The epidemic of anxiety and depression! And of course the headliner: the seemingly inevitable extinction we are supposedly headed for. Bye-bye neat, organized Virgo business as usual—we are now running down Chaos Lane headed to a Pisces bar.
I dance between these two worlds. We all do. Fear and trust. In fact, we are living in turbulent times of duality like never before, because we are being assaulted with information all day long. I want to be informed, carrying emotional wisdom, so I can stay in reality with an open heart.
None of this is new. Across time, we have been faced with health issues (think the plague), politics (assassinations), and people performing weird and curious acts that left us all puzzled and at times victimized (dictators). Yet, now more than ever, this kind of scary content becomes everyone’s story. Even if from a distance, fear is rampant.
All water signs inform the unconscious mind; however, Pisces specializes in secrets sourcing from the dark, twisted content that has us confused and scared. Virgo comes in with concrete steps to relieve the dark, scary world—with instructions, advice and research.
We are both logical and confused, both kind and cruel. The Sun comes up, then changes shifts with the Moon every day: our reality is steeped in duality.
This virus is real. And yet we are safe. Very contagious, but highly unlikely to kill you. The odds are in our favor, but then again, not in the emotional body. It’s just plain scary as a simple thought. If I say: coronavirus—we all get scared.
I am supposed to travel to go the Expo West with my partner, who loves the world of health food, science and new products; however, there is fear during this full moon. What to do?
Full moons increase emotional energy. Fear increases—but so does fun. It’s our challenge to ride the ups and down, the merry-go-round of life with wisdom and emotional intelligence.
I traveled. I took the risk. I invite all of us to live a life that has deep meaning, which implies walking straight into fear, carrying the light down the streets of despair. What is the alternative? To hide out, to give up, to surrender to fear? Not me.
I invite you during this full moon—with Mercury finally going direct—to go direct too: straight to awareness and calm. It’s a choice in every moment. What do we have to lose?
I choose to be safe—if nowhere else, than in my imagination—and then voila, it’s becomes true.
Safe/fear. Hope/despair. Light/dark. It’s all choice. What has distracted you these days? How do you stay in the center and hold tightly to faith?
Remember this full moon in Virgo asks us to serve. To use our worry wart energy to be soothed. This is our job—to bring hope, light, and safety to all those who come to us.
We know the stars have light even in the dark. I personally trust them completely. This is what I love most about Astrology: the Sun and Moon in perfect relationship! Steady and ever bright than dark across all time. How we love the trustworthy sky. This is my Virgo service: to inspire you to do that same.
Full moon: time to enjoy the duality at its best during a Pisces and Virgo dialogue. We can all choose love when fear tries to take you away. Just say: I trust life. Life works.
That’s the truth.
And the Moon and the Sun will continue the dance forever.
In service to you during this full moon in Virgo,
P.S. My personal project I am dreaming (Pisces) into form (Virgo) is a writing class that I am only inviting my list into. It’s starting in April, so stayed tuned. It’s my way of helping us clear out our fear to the light. You’ll see, stand by. I’ll be informing you soon!
