Sunday, March 12th (10:54am EST), brings us the final full moon of winter 2017.
This full moon can be interpreted several different (yet synchronous) ways.
Astrologically speaking, this moon is in the sign of Virgo, which alludes to the energies of organization, practicality, boundaries, and meticulousness. With Mercury acting as the ruling planet of this sign, clarity in communication, as well as speech and writing, comes to the forefront of our consciousness. Virgo is a perfectionist of sorts, but can become jaded and cold when things don’t work out as planned. Absorbing the positive attributes of the sign, and the lessons within these energies – allow the Virgo moon to shine light on what areas of your life need more organization, and don’t be afraid to create boundaries around certain situations that aren’t in your best interest.
In Native American culture, this moon is known as the Worm Moon, metaphorically representing nature’s resurrection into light after the darkness of winter. With Virgo helping us shine light on the areas in our life that need more organization and focus, allow the metaphor of the Worm Moon to allow you to resurrect into your next best self by concentrating on how/what the next “season of self” looks like to you. Spring forward into the warmer months, and place intention on what dream/desires you’d like to see rise up, and bloom.
The Storm Moon, as its known in Paganism, may reference the notion that March “comes in like a lion and out like a lamb”, and allowing this idea to serve as a mantra is a reminder to find the balance of power and peace. We are each a force in our own right, and the power of our mind is limitless, but the power is within you, and you alone. Remember that strength and confidence will bring you to the door you wish to open on the path to your next best self, but to unlock it – the key is to also maintain a gentle heart. Balance the heart and the mind, and all of the answers you seek will reveal themselves to you, like a rainbow after a storm.
Whichever astrological (or metaphorical) energy resonates most with you, the keys to remember are organization, resurrection, strength, and balance. Ask yourself – What is it that I need to organize, in order to resurrect into my next best self? What do I need to balance in order to find my strength?
Before you know it, spring will be here – and it will truly be your time to shine – look at this final full moon of winter as a last little bit of polishing before you are in your ultimate sparkle.
