*VIRGO FULL MOON*
DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY
19TH FEBRUARY 2019 @ 10:53 GMT
Spring is in the air and it's time to shake out the last of the winter blues and hibernation. The Virgo full moon also heralds the spring. It is the moon in between Imbolc, (the first days of spring in the Celtic calendar on 2nd-3rd February), and Spring Equinox on 21st March, as the seeds germinate, flowers push out of the soil and the trees start to bud in preparation for blossoming.
February is turning out to be an interesting month. Things are moving at a fast pace and keeping on top of everything can be challenging. Fortunately, this coming Virgo full moon gives us all a boost of much needed energy, giving us the strength to overcome any blockages, challenges and obstacles so that our projects and creative endeavours move forward. What we do during this time will effect what happens for the rest of the year so it's important that you use your energy wisely. Let your intuition guide you.
We can feel really fired up over this full moon, ready for anything and motivated to take action on the inspirations that came up over the Aquarius new moon. However, beware the typical Virgoan trait of being a perfectionist. Don’t set your expectations too high too soon, or see your problems as hopeless or insurmountable. It is the law of nature that if there is a problem, there has to be a solution. This full moon can help you see how to overcome the challenges that you face.
Write a list of things that need to get done in priority order so you don't feel too overwhelmed. This is a good time to file papers, spring clean the car/home/garage, do some gardening, go through your starred email box, contact that person who's been on your mind. Under a Virgo moon we are inspired to do the mundane things that often get relegated to the bottom of the priority list.
Wishing you all
Virgo Full Moon Blessings

My 7 top tips to successfully surfing this VIRGO FULL MOON wave…
Don't Worry Be Happy
This Virgo moon can amplify any anxiety or worries you may be having, upping our stress levels that may in turn create black and white thinking. To increase the pressure, life is going very fast and things may be difficult to control. My message over this moon cycle is 'Don't Worry Be Happy!' Rather than feeling stressed and worried about the future and what you can't control, find the faith and trust that everything is happening perfectly, even if it doesn't feel like it.
Gratitude for the Earth
Virgo is symbolised by the Goddess Ceres who has given us the gift of nature, and taught us how to grow, preserve and prepare the grain and corn for the harvest. Most importantly she is responsible for the fertility of the land, and health and wellbeing of all its inhabitants. Over this full moon take time to give thanks to our beautiful planet. Send a daily prayer of gratitude for clean air, water and food and all the abundance the earth has given us. When we practice the attitude of gratitude we automatically feel more abundant and happy.
Fortunately, the earthy Virgo full moon likes to push us out of our comfort zones. This moon helps us to get creative and practically set our sails for distant shores, towards our goals. It motivates us to start planting our visions and dreams in concrete reality, so we can prepare for an abundant and prosperous harvest later in the year.
Refocus your Attention
This Virgo full moon refocuses our attention on the future by giving our visions and dreams more clarity and form. We can get a clearer idea of where we are going and what we need to do to get there. By allowing us to let go of the past, however difficult and painful it might have been, this moon also promises a brighter, more successful future by motivating us to start again with renewed focus, clarity and passion.
Clear the Clutter
Virgo helps us to re-affirm our purpose and gives reason for our existence. If you are feeling frustrated, anchorless, and battered by what is happening externally, use this time to clear your house both mentally and physically. Sometimes it is hard to let go of memories, represented by the stuff that we hide in boxes and bags. This clutter can hold us locked in the past and stops us from moving forward and allowing new things to enter our lives.
Being a Martyr
Be careful not to become the martyr over this moon so ensure you put your needs as high as everybody else’s. This moon can also bring out the negative critic, towards ourselves and others. We are all feeling a bit vulnerable and raw so be aware not to over analyze a situation or become too critical of someone, as this could lead to an emotional blow up that is easily avoided.
This full moon inspires us to ask the questions: who am I and what is my place in the world? and take full responsibility for what is happening in our lives. This can often ignite the need to serve others and the environment, so if you have been feeling the need to do some selfless service, this moon is propelling you to take action. When we help others, it often puts our own challenges into a clearer perspective and makes us feel better about ourselves.
Full Moon Ritual
This is the moon for celebration and shaking out the energy of winter. Discard the heavy clothing that has protected you from the cold and dance the cobwebs of winter away. Have a ‘sunbath’ to feel the heat of the warming sun on your body. This is the moon to take risks. Go for what you believe in and don’t be afraid. What you do now will reverberate throughout the rest of the year.
This is also a good time to complete projects, write proposals, edit documents, or anything that requires mental and detailed activity and analysis. You may also find that you are promoted or given more work responsibilities. Focus on getting your priority list done this month, to ensure you are on top of everything before Mercury goes retrograde and the emotional Pisces new moon on 5/6th March.
We may feel more willing to serve and help others during this moon so check out the volunteer opportunities in your local community and be open to all the opportunities coming your way.
Under a Virgo full moon we are inspired to search new horizons so do something new and exciting. Take up a hobby, do a night class, learn a second language, cooking lessons, a new skill or anything that stretches your abilities. This is also the perfect time to pamper yourself. Have that massage, reflexology, acupuncture, colonic hydrotherapy, flotation, detox, you have been promising yourself.
If you don't have the money take a long hot bath with essential oils, give yourself a foot massage and eat a delicious home-cooked meal. Curl up with a good book or reconnect with an old friend you haven't spoken to for ages. Find the time to love and honour yourself that will make you feel nourished and rejuvenated.
