March 2015 Full & New Moons: Full Moon in Virgo & Solar Eclipse in Pisces
A full moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are exactly opposing one another in the zodiac. It tends to signal a time of endings, culminations, and things coming to fruition. A new moon occurs when the transit Sun and Moon are in the exact same spot in the zodiac. It tends to signal a time of new opportunities, growth, and optimism. A solar eclipse is like an amped up new moon, and can impact you for up to six months.
For information on how the new/full moons may impact your sign, read the monthly horoscope.
March 5th 2015 Full Moon in Virgo
A full moon occurs at 1:05PM ET at 14 degrees 50 minutes of Virgo. In Virgo, we obsess over the details. We pay attention to every little thing and drive everyone and ourselves bonkers. We try to bring order to chaos, but we force too much structure and rules that don’t work. We demand too much from ourselves, absolute perfection, and need to cut ourselves some slack. You’re only human. We need to work on keeping our stress down, otherwise we can see some issues creep up, and it might seem like everyone is catching a bug. This full moon trines (positive aspect) transit (moving) Pluto in Capricorn, and we can get the power we want and take control back, and see those in authority try to do the right thing. If you're a Virgo Sun, Moon, or mid-Virgo rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
March 20th 2015 Solar Eclipse in Pisces
A solar eclipse occurs at 5:36AM ET at 29 degrees 27 minutes of Pisces. In Pisces, this solar eclipse puts the spotlight on our empathy, compassion, and ability to help others. We focus more on trying to reach out and help those who can’t help themselves. Since this eclipse is at 29 degrees, the Anaretic degree, the energy is amplified, and we can go a little too far helping others, or not go far enough. We have to find the right balance when it comes to reaching out. Fantasy can become important, and it can take over reality if we’re not careful. This can also be a critical time regarding water, our oceans, marine life, and we can see oil spills, chemical contamination coming to light, and we try to make people act responsibly. If you're a Pisces Sun, Moon, or late Pisces rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
