Welcome to the Full Moon in Virgo, Mother Mary, the Dutiful Spiritual Soul, that oversees the birth of the soul, into and out of the world, the source
that reflects the light from the one that is closest to spirit (the Sun in Pisces), it’s time for us to transcend to a lighter, higher dimension.
The recent Mercury Retrograde may have brought things up again, but perhaps for once and for all? We are releasing and letting go of so many old people, places, faces, without a performance but with a gentle whisper, and a quiet untethering of the ways….
Spring is around the corner, but mother earth makes no noise about it. She quietly works away to produce, and one day, new life has sprung.
The Chinese New Year of the Ox has landed and the snowdrops are rising.
Lockdown, as tough as it’s been, is lightning as the days are getting lighter.
The time of incubation, hibernation and darkness has taught us how little we need in our lives, the gift in simplifying, and now it’s a time for a final decluttering of the ways.
Many of us have worked harder throughout lockdown, than we ever have in our lives. Even if it’s “just” been on our passions, our hobbies, or ourselves… we’ve found the stamina of an Ox, putting our head down and just keeping on, keeping on going, going, going…...
This last lockdown here in the UK coupled with dark winter days, long winter nights and soooo much rain, has felt arduous, endless even.Thus is the nature of change, the struggle on with what feels like a lifelong situation, and with each day that passes, it becomes harder and harder to believe that things will ever change.
But then, you wake up one day and things are different.
Welcome to the Full Moon in Virgo - The Light at the End of the Tunnel.
She trines Uranus and opposes Venus thus bringing a higher love through a creative breakthrough.
She purifies and simplifies, cleanse and declutter your life, humble yourself and release…
You don’t need to push or force it, you just need to let it go. You don’t need to make a song or dance about it, you just need to let it silently slip away.
The tightrope of change is here, can you feel it? Sometimes change seems like it happens suddenly, but even with sudden change it never is...
There is always a little elbow nudge from the universe, a pre rumble in the air of the storm brewing, just like The Tower card in the Tarot. A sudden shock,when that burning tower blasts into flames, but…. there ain’t no smoke without fire.
Other times it's more like the Death card, a ghost that haunts you, you catch glimpses out of the corner of your eye, but when you try to fix your vision on it nothing is there, you reach out to get a grasp on it, but your fingers go right through.
It’s simply not your time yet. Both change agents (The Tower and Death) are ruled by divine timing.
The change on the cards at the moment feels more like the long, silent process of death.
Rather than the loud crash boom bang of The Tower. Death rules winter and here in the northern hemisphere we are at the end of it, and at the end of death is rebirth, a final clearing or the ways, exorcism of the old, and new environment ready to house new life, the light at the end of the tunnel but...
Us humans fear change, when we lack faith.
So what if we simply decide to have faith? In ourselves and the world?
2021 is the year of change. It’s time to make friends with both The Tower and Death and here’s 4 reasons why:
- 1. It’s a number 5 year in numerology - 5’s mark the mid cycle, the breakdown point of change.
- 2. The 5th Tarot card is The High Priest (faith) known to be stuck in the old and have a challenge with change.
- 3. Saturn (restriction, structure) is squaring (tense aspect) Uranus (change maker) we must find the soul purpose of this “change contract”
- 4. Uranus is in Taurus - the sign that rules the High Priest (number 5, the number of this year of Chinese Year - the Ox) see how it all ties together?
Taurus finds change mighty uncomfortable and needs to be gentle with it.
Being Venus ruled, it needs time to gestate and birth just like Mother Earth.
Yet, there’s a stillpoint in Taurus that’s majorly sacred, when everything around it rocks it can be a rock, and this I believe is part of what our collective transition through the spiritual initiation of lockdown has been about.
We are no longer afraid to let go of that we once clung to, we can see with clarity where our lives stuffed us like square pegs in round holes, and we are far less conditioned or controllable.
Even with masks and vaccines, there’s something inside that’s been stirred, The seed of simplicity, ease and grace.
This is where we land with Virgo, the spiritual wise one, the virgin goddess, the nun, the wise man and The Hermit. The one who can renounce, release, simplify, purify and release oneself from bondage.
So if you, like me, and many others feel along with the world starting to open back up again, you can see a change on the horizon, and a new life beckoning you forward, walk towards it, let go of the complexities of the past that once held you back, they no longer need to wear you down.
Take the long lasting lessons of what is hopefully a final lockdown with you.
The light at the end of the tunnel is now in our vision.
“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation. Let there be spaces in your togetherness. Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream." ― Khalil Gibran
