On March 12th, a full moon occurs in Virgo at 10:54AM ET. The Virgo full moon wants to put aside emotional whims and focus on what absolutely needs to be done. We can work on tackling the little things, getting them out of the way, and finishing then off one at a time. We can be extra productive, efficient, and hard-working, and can feel better when we’re getting things done. We may push ourselves too much though, and need to make sure we don’t work ourselves to the bone. Doing that only results in STRESS, something we need to always be mindful of with a Virgo full moon. We can stress ourselves silly over nothing too important, so don’t push too hard, don’t demand too much from yourself, and avoid any perfectionist inklings. And take a day off when you can!
This can be a good time to work on bringing some structure, order, routine, and streamlining life, your space, your schedule. Clear the clutter out of anything and get rid of anything that’s in the way or unnecessary. The less junk you’ve got around you, the better.
The full moon is opposite asteroid Chiron in Pisces. Chiron is dubbed the Wounded Healer, and governs what we need to heal from as well as how we can heal. Chiron can be very sensitive, and we may find that we’re extra sensitive with our wounds with this full moon. There may be something out of our control that brings back old wounds, exposes the deep hurt, and makes the pain known. But it’s likely for a reason, and we need to deal with it so we can finally heal and move on.

On March 27th, a new moon occurs in Aries at 10:57PM ET. The new moon in Aries is a time of energy, enthusiasm, drive, and positive approaches. We’re excited by what we’re doing, we can’t wait to get things started, and we may jump into it, but we’re too enthusiastic to worry. We can feel more pioneering and courageous, ready to boldly take the first step on a new journey and a new beginning.
The new moon wants us to get moving, but we may have a harder time doing that with Venus retrograde (appearing to move backward) at the same time. Venus retrograde normally makes us pretty lazy, but the new moon in Aries wants us to act. Perhaps schedule equal times for napping and for acting?
The new moon is *sort of* conjunct (aligned with) Venus retrograde in Aries. I normally only consider aspects within 2 degrees and it’s about 3 degrees away, but given that Venus is retrograde, that amplifies her impact and so, we can consider the conjunction. This brings more energy and focus on the Venus retrograde, which can amplify the bad or help bring some opportunities to get out of the bad. Maybe a little of both! This can be a great time for taking the initiative with second chances.
