The Virgo Full Moon and the Fierce Feminine
This week’s astrology peaks with the Virgo Full Moon on Thursday. This is the first Full Moon after the Aquarius New Moon eclipse, and therefore carries that event’s signature in some way — although it does so with a slightly different flavor, thanks to the Sun and Moon being in new signs.
As with all Full Moons, you may experience the sense of energy or emotions building, or an interpersonal situation that seems to be at a standoff. With the Sun and Moon in mutable signs, however, you might feel like there’s more wiggle room or flexibility available to you.
This could be especially worth tracking in terms of the youth outcry against the lack of gun control in the U.S. With the eclipse, a real seed seems to have been sown to change a cultural pattern of inaction on this issue.
By no means will the gun control problem come to its only peak or resolution within a month; it is far too complex for that. But I am curious to see what shape the current standoff takes this week. I suspect it’s highly likely that there will be further escalation of emotion and energy among the youth who are now fed up and demanding change.
This Full Moon has the Moon in Virgo opposite the Sun in Pisces (exact at 7:51 pm EST Thursday / 00:51 UTC Friday). You can think of this as the axis of manifestation: Pisces offers the vision and passion, and Virgo offers the way to make that vision tangible via intellect and method.

If Your Birthday is Feb. 26
(The Day of of Arousal) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Work through any feelings of anger you may have, and get to your real desires and needs that lurk beneath them. Notice any tension you may feel in your mind or emotions, and burn it for fuel. The mind runs on energy, which often manifests as ‘negative feelings’. You can flip those into positive motivation and the drive for self-knowledge.
|Current Pisces Weekly Horoscope
It’s your birthday season, and many planets have joined the party. Among others, Venus and Mercury are in your sign, which bestow a natural charm and ease of communication. You can say less rather than say more.

You’re probably getting the message to up your game on the financial front, though the first thing to remember about finances is that they’re connected to everything. In astrology there are two houses connected to the money that you earn.
Written in the Planets
Today’s aspects by the Moon would seem to be a reminder that love and compassion are not a zero-sum game. The best solution to any problem is one that takes into account everyone’s wellbeing; the best sort of creed is likewise inclusive. Wherever you have the opportunity today, do your best to make sure that no-one is left out in the cold; even if that just means offering one kind word, or a smile.
