The Full Moon in Virgo is your cosmic call-to-action. A mutable Earth sign, symbolized by a woman holding a sheaf of wheat, Virgo brings practicality, critical thinking, and a high attention to detail to the task at hand. This energy allows you to see the entire path ahead of you, as well as any potential pitfalls along the way, so that you can take action based on a plan that is more than likely to succeed.
Even as the Moon wanes, this Virgo energy will remain strong for the next few days, giving you an opportunity to use Virgo’s sharp vision to enhance your life. This is an excellent time for organizing, learning, and advancing a skill set. For this Moon cycle, I recommend zeroing in on the following three areas, all of which resonate strongly with Virgo’s Earth element.
The element of Earth also makes this an ideal time for financial planning and wealth management – which makes sense, because it is tax season after all! If any sign enjoys bookkeeping activities, it’ll be Virgo, so you may as well take advantage (plus, if you haven’t done your taxes yet, be ye warned, they’re due soon!). Other fruitful activities include:
- Consolidating debt
- Opening up an RRSP or other long-term savings plan
- Meeting with a financial advisor or investment planner
Even if you consider yourself to be a financial expert, it’s always a good idea to consult with a professional since they’re privy to specialized information and can often see what you can’t – Virgo all the way!
Gardening & Plant Medicine
Virgo’s Earth energy also lends itself beautifully to all earth-based endeavours, such as planning your garden, starting seeds, or learning about plant medicine in general. Spring always has a tendency to sneak up on us, so the best time to start getting ready is now. Channel your inner Virgo with the following actions:
- Drawing up a plan for this year’s garden
- Taking inventory of the tools you have and budgeting for what you’ll need
- Starting seeds or sprouting your own herbs
Remember that you must be practical. Plan for what’s possible in your area/zone, with your lifestyle. Remember that plants and gardens need to be tended to daily, so consider that if you tend to travel or are planning a vacation. Also, if you like to make your own herbal medicines, remember that these things take time, so start thinking about what you want to make now so that they can be ready for Fall’s cold and flu season.
Learning & Professional Development
If you’re like me, you like to learn ALL THE THINGS. Tapping into Virgo energy can help you make the best choice in your learning ventures, so that whatever you choose to pursue is something that will actually be useful to you, and stay within your budget. It’s not all about ROI, of course! If you enjoy something and learning about it will give you pleasure for years to come, that in and of itself is a valuable return for your investment. Be wise and pick something that you’re actually passionate about. Consider:
- Taking an advanced course in an area that you’re already proficient
- Career advancement: Is there a program that would set you apart from your peers at work, which could lead to a promotion?
- Expanding your scope: Is there a course that would allow you to expand your scope of practice and perform more advanced procedures?
- New services: Is there a course in something that you’re really good at that you’re ready to offer the world at a professional level?
Don’t be scatter-brained about this! Remember, Virgo loves to be wise with money, so make the practical choice, and laser focus your energy on getting the most out of this education. You won’t regret it!
Happy Full Moon,
