Midwife to the Full Moon

This is a short post for those following their Pisces Moon Cycle. We are nearing the Virgo Full Moon. The Sun is still in Pisces and is day by day, step by step building the dream we conceived at that time. Meanwhile, the Moon has moved through the Zodiac signs and now reaches Virgo, the opposite sign to Pisces.  Pisces is the womb of the gestating dream emerging out of the unconscious. Virgo is the midwife that will help bring the dream into manifestation.

Virgo seeks to create order out of the chaos of the Pisces unconscious.  Each sign has its opposite that is the other end of the stick. Where Pisces is the unconscious, Virgo is conscious. Where Pisces is aware we are all connected, Virgo discerns the discrete detail. While Pisces is everything, Virgo is contained. It is Virgo’s role to take the dream and make it a practical reality. Virgo serves the dream by taking care of its needs so it will survive in our everyday existence.

We are now in the energy of the Pisces/Virgo Full Moon and you may wish to reflect on what you felt was bubbling up at the New Moon. See what ideas you want to contain and nurse into your everyday reality. What routines are you setting up? Are there systems that you are rearranging to accommodate this new desire? How are you preparing for the birth of this dream? What new skills do you wish to develop in order to support it? As we observe our journey we will hear the whispers that answer these questions.

Virgo has a reputation for being critical when in reality it is trying to create the safest environment to birth the delicate and vulnerable. At this Full Moon it is worth being aware of that inner critic without succumbing to despair at the enormity of the task.

Virgo is witnesses the nebulousness of the Pisces domain. She knows the power of a small shift that  allows a whole new reality to manifest as the story unfolds. She is the facilitator of discrete moments that deliver you the outcome you desire. When you look back  you can see how seemingly random actions provide perfect steps to the present. The Full Moon is the time to answer the prompting that calls you take up a new skill, clear out a space, integrate a new habit or set up a daily schedule. You are now preparing the nursery for the birth of your dream.

Today I was lucky enough to discover the beautiful work of artist, Brigid Marlin. The image perfectly displays the Virgo energy bringing the Pisces creativity into the world we are familiar with. Scheherazade told stories that delighted a King, saved a sister and live on in the imaginations of generation after generation.
