The full Moon will be in Virgo and illuminating our health, daily routines and the work environment. The daily home routines we encounter such as taking the trash out, cleaning the toilets and scrubbing the scum from the tiles in our shower or dusting behind the fridge, feel like a burden. Even so, there are routine tasks of care in all aspects of our life. At work, it may be the details in our paperwork, phone calls, filling out our time cards, driving through traffic – and then our self-care like eating healthy and taking frequent breaks or that massage you’ve been putting off.
Okay, not everyone can afford a massage – even so — you have two hands and can do it yourself. You don’t want to because it’s too taxing. So, instead, you turn on the tele or eat your favorite ice cream. Habits and comfort zone keeps us stagnant and not too fulfilled in the long-term.
Virgo can be prone to critical rumination when it is faced with doing something it doesn’t like or want to do. These critical mental Pattern cause us to make less healthy choices.
When the New Moon was in Pisces two weeks ago we weren’t thinking about spring cleaning or making healthier food choices. We didn’t mind going out for a drink with our friends, dancing into the wee hours of the morning – or doing yoga, meditation or reading poetry to our loved ones.
Any mundane activity pales in comparison to a yoga session or clubbing with our friends. Yet, these mundane activities are what keep our homes clean, us free of illness, and our minds less cluttered.
With the moon feeling tense vibes from Saturn we find these mundane routines stifling. We might even hear the distant voice of our mother telling us to clean our room or make the bed – even worse – wash the dishes.
The moon is challenged by Mercury and the Sun. Our mind wants to forge ahead and overlook the minute details and our deepest internal needs. Chiron conjunct this Mercury/Sun configuration – we feel we can’t go out with our friends because we have homework to do.
The excitement of Uranus dashing our plans or taking us away from our plans is another sign that we just can’t find any peace in our lives or get shit done. Or can you?
What is the resolution?
We have Pluto trine the Moon which provides emotional power to deepen our commitments to ourselves.
If we focus on the perceived drudgery as a spiritual task we can move our New Moon wish toward completion. We can be spiritual, clean our toilets and have fun while we do it.
Let’s face it, don’t you feel better with a clean house, a clear mind and a cleaner body?
