Full moon in earthy Virgo, the keeper of Earth’s rhythms and cycles.
Don’t be surprised if you catch yourself delving into the details of issues and habits that need to change. Analysis can be a great use of Virgo energy, but try not to overdo it. Be gentle with yourself. You really don’t need to alter every aspect of your life.
With the moon now in Virgo and spring equinox just around the corner, it is the perfect time to connect with and honor Mama Earth.
Spend some time out in nature, and express your gratitude to Mama Earth for the food, water, air and shelter she provides. No need to create an elaborate ritual; simply express your love and gratitude to Mama Earth in some simple way.

We have arrived at Imbolc – the halfway point between winter solstice and spring equinox.
Days are lengthening, seeds are stirring, animals are birthing. Mama Earth is beginning to awaken from her long winter slumber.
Celebrate that spring is on its way.

This fiery full moon is is amplified by a total lunar eclipse. The next few days will be positively pulsating with the energies of transformation and expansion.
With change comes chaos. How best to handle all this wild, chaotic energy? Lena Stevens from the Power Path offers this advice:
“It can be as uncomfortable as growing pains but if you stay present
and focused on improvement, the rewards are phenomenal.
Many indigenous peoples see this time as an anchor
for the future, the beginning of a new cycle.
What do you want? What do you need?
What is showing up for you?“
Focus on what you want to improve and change. But never stop expressing gratitude for the good things that are already present in your life. Dance with gratitude for what is, as you turn toward your heart’s desires.

And if you are to love,
love like the moon loves.
It doesn’t steal the night.
It only unveils the beauty of the dark
