MARCH 5TH, 2015 – VIRGO FULL MOON

AstroEyes Evolutionary Astrology – Cathy Lindsey

AstroEyes's pictureFull Moons are a time of releasing.  It is a time of releasing the old that is no longer working. Go deep into yourself, your foundations, your old perceptions, your Soul….. and observe what is no longer working for you.  What is no longer vibrating where you are now vibrating?   It is a time of purging and releasing in all areas of your life.   Especially at this Virgo Full Moon…… as we are in a very intense time period…..we are moving towards the crest of another very large hill on this roller costar ride that we have been on since 2010.  This is a high voltage Full Moon…

With all Full Moons (remember Full Moon energy is a day and half on each side of the peak), we have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon.  So with the Full Moon in Virgo, the Sun is in Pisces.  The Sun and the Moon are in opposition, and an opposition in Astrology asks us for an adjustment, a balancing, a compromise of the opposite ends, in order to obtain positive growth.  In this case, the Full Moon is in Virgo & the Sun is in Pisces.  Virgo sees the details and Pisces sees the whole picture on all spiritual levels, Pisces is in dream land, and Virgo is in real land.  Virgo uses analysis and Pisces uses intuition. Virgo is in the head, and Pisces is in the heart. Virgo is in the physical realm, and Pisces is in the Spiritual realm. Balancing Heaven/bliss (Pisces) and Earth (Virgo).  With this Full Moon we can bring in an incredible amount of Piscean energy through meditation and dreams, creativity and manifesting, than bring them down to Earth, with the Virgo Full Moon…….where we can ground the energies and use them in this reality.  Be aware however of the grey side of Virgo, which is too much detail, putting things off because you think that you don’t know enough yet, or because it isn’t perfect yet…..in other words….don’t hold yourself back.  The grey side of Pisces to be aware of … is addictions and getting lost in the fogginess of the Piscean energy, procrastination, and being ungrounded.

With this Virgo Full Moon, it is also a good time to focus on your health, work and service.  A lot of Healing is available during this Full Moon.  It is also a great time to clean (release) out closets, basements, and your own hidden stuff deep in your Soul…… that the Universe is wanting you to release!   This still holds true for things that are no longer vibrating where you are vibrating, including jobs, where you live, family, friends, and lovers…. it is a time to distance from them in the most loving and compassionate way…..as things may change down the road.  Release the old in all areas of your life…. that is no longer working towards your future!

This Full Virgo Moon is in aspect to  Pluto in the ongoing Cardinal T-Square….. adding even more energy of radical change and transformation to this Full Moon,  The Cardinal T-Square, during this Full Moon is made up of Pluto Squaring the North Node (what we came here to learn)….which is in Libra ( about Love, Peace and balance).  Pluto is also squaring the South Node (lessons from the past that we want to move way from) which is in Aries (the Warrior, pioneer, and initiator).  Also sitting with the South Node is 3 other planets in Aries….. Uranus (sudden things happening, lighting bolts and earthquakes, constant Change, humanity), Venus (love, feminine energy, creativity) and Mars (male energy, the warrior, the pioneer, the crusader). The Universe is speaking loudly here about balance……Bringing into balance….. the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Male,  and pharmaceuticals and  natural medicine’s……GMO’s and natural food…..etc.   It is about bringing them into balance for all humanity.  It is time…now… at this powerful Full Moon…. to take charge and begin to make a difference.   How can you take some steps to bring these things into balance?   How can you bring about change in these areas?

We also have Mars (in this Cardinal T-Square) that will be sitting with (conjunct) Uranus on March 11th, and squaring (stress and friction) Pluto.   This is a very powerful aspect and it could possibly become a volatile time throughout the world.   During this time and for a few weeks…..be careful and cautious…watch where you are walking and how you and others are driving.  Watch what you say and how you say it.   Know that the energies are very chaotic right now….and very intense.   Of course these energies are also affecting the World and the Earth itself.  I find it interesting that this conjunction of Mars and Uranus on March 11th…..happens right over the Vatican.   This could also bring about a Quantum Leap in our world….and a much awaited….. break through!

Releasing and cleaning out all the old….. is very important with this Virgo Full Moon, as we head towards the 7th out of 7 exact (by degree and minute) Cardinal Squares (between Pluto and Uranus)….happening in about 11 days.  This is the ending of a cycle within a cycle!!!   The first exact Cardinal Square (with Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries) was on June 24th of 2012……and the last of the 7 will be on March 16th 2015 at 8:50 pm CDT.    The bigger cycle (the Shift),  of the Cardinal Square with Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries started in the spring of 2010 and will continue through 2017 and loosely to the spring of 2018…..

With Venus and Mars sitting together in the same sign of Aries……it is a message from the Universe that besides the balancing of the Feminine and the Male that this combination indicates.  It is also saying that some of the lessons that are brought about during this Month….starting with this powerful Full Virgo Moon will be about learning through relationships.  Relationships of all types.  People, places, and things that no longer vibrate where you are now vibrating…..it is time to distance from them.  Family issues, with our spouse’s, our partners, our children, our in-laws, brothers and sisters…..and even love relationships (which can also trigger family issues), bringing up lessons that are deep within us and forcing us to look at issues that can make us feel uncomfortable.  This is presenting us with the opportunity to see what is no longer working for us in these areas.  Who, or what situation is not vibrating where you are vibrating……who might not be seeing things the way you are seeing things.   With this Full Moon….it is a good time to release many of these family and relationships issues.   It might be the time to distance from these relationships for a while.   You can do this in a loving and compassionate way…..just don’t be as available…..distance……in the kindest way possible, knowing that things can change down the road…..either by the rise in vibration and understanding from  the other, or by a permanent distancing.  It is time to think about all your relationships…..meditate on them…..see what needs adjusted and ask for guidance…..than Trust in that guidance.

The Universe has also given us a release valve during this Full Moon.   The Pisces Sun (part of the Full Moon) is sitting between Neptune and Chiron……all 3 in Pisces.  Pisces again is about unconditional Love and high channeled creativity.  It is very intuitive and understands the more mystical world. It is about Meditation and dreams.   So with the Pisces Sun (our life force) sitting with Neptune (which rules Pisces)…..the spiritual energy…the direct connection to Source, Spirit, God/ Goddess, Buda, Yahweh …what ever your version is..   Is extremely powerful!!   With both the Sun and Neptune sitting with Chiron…the Universe is wanting us to take notice.    Chiron was known as the healer of the Gods and the teacher of the Gods.  He represents a wound that we are trying to heal this life time…..both for ourselves and for the collective.   This combination is about healing the collective wound of our Spirituality and how we have been treated and manipulated many times in the past by Religions.  Not all….but some. It is about being able to share without fear our own beliefs.  It is about how we can help heal that collective wound.   Meditate on what the next step should be for yourself and for Humanity.

Remember that The Earth has also been, and will continue to receive these very intense energies as we climb towards the peak of this current hill in mid March.   We have already seen and will continue to see very unusual weather and Earth rumblings, Volcanoes, and releasing…..etc     We can see these energies also playing out with the World Powers Russia, the Ukraine,  the US and all nations as we  encounter and try to put an end to the dangers of ISIS.  Remember we are releasing the old ways…the “Old” in all areas of existence.    The “New” is about Peace, unconditional love, Joy etc.

With these powerful energies, you may be feeling tired, lethargic and worn out…… it is a time to listen to your body and to rest when you need to rest. Our bodies are trying to incorporate a lot of energies at one time, and the energy is intensifying.  You may be feeling like chaos is all around you…..it is a time that things are being put right in our faces….so we won’t miss them….and so we have to face them and make changes.  Change isn’t always easy…..but realize we are heading for that “Big Picture”, even though we are not sure what that totally looks like yet, we can still envision it.  Remember we are looking at the rise of the Phoenix out of the ashes……and it will be beautiful!!!!!

Our intentions this month need to come from honesty, and from the truth in our hearts.  You must Love with higher Wisdom (Pisces), and experience Joy with Knowledge (Virgo).

Release at this Virgo Full Moon the things that are no longer working in all areas of your life…things that are no longer vibrating where you are vibrating. What/who do you need to distance from at this time? Watch your thoughts, your emotions, and your reactions.  Pay attention to your reactions in situations that present themselves.  If your buttons get pushed, don’t judge… but observe.  The Universe could be trying to tell you something. It is time to release these things at this Full Moon.   It is a time to be quiet, call in God/Goddess, your Angels and Guides…..your whole Team.  Embody all the Piscean energy of this Full Moon and let yourself dream…..let yourself spend extra time Meditating!!!   Connect with your Guidance and think with them….talk with them……and ask them for guidance……. then trust in there guidance.      Manifest….Create….Meditate… and above all……Listen!!!

These are the energies affecting all of humanity and the Earth.  These energies also affect you individually, according to how they activate your own birth chart.

Alcohol is a gateway drug, not marijuana according to this study

Original Post from RawStory.com by Stephen Webster

A recent study in The Journal of School Health finds that the most common gateway drug is not pot, like most people tend to accuse.  The ultimate gateway drug is in fact the most pervasive drug in our culture: alcohol.

What’s in a broken ankle

It’s difficult to start a blog and to know exactly what to say. So I decided to start with today and let the story unfold as I go…

To give you a brief history of who I am and why my day would be so important, let me take you back to four months ago…

Well, I’m a 41 year old, Caucasian, single mom of two children and currently the guardian of my 16 year old niece. We live in a beautiful coastal town – the picturesque Garden Route on the Southern tip of Africa.

In November 2014, I walked joyfully down a couple of stairs and felt my ankles wobble… Left, right, left and I collapsed, falling down two steps and onto the pavement below. It was quite a scenario to say the least.

After three days of agony – I had x-rays done and was informed that my left ankle had two fractures, a clean break and my right ankle was severely sprained. I was booked in for surgery and since then have being going for physiotherapy, which brings me back to today.

Today was my last appointment with the physiotherapist and I finally gave back the crutches. It’s been a long and very difficult journey. You can imagine… A 41 year old, independent woman. Never been married, having recently moved to a new town and only knowing three people.

What was the reason behind my ailment I wondered…

Having being involved in holistic healing since the age of 17, I would naturally question the metaphysical reasoning behind my broken ankle. Well, I took into consideration that for the first time since leaving home, I had to depend on someone else to take care of me. I was like a baby, I needed to be carried to the bathroom, bathed, dressed, and all my needs taken care of – the children, my full-time employment, the list goes on.

This is where the story get’s interesting. Six months ago I met a guy and for the first two months we were inseparable. Then things became too heated between us and both of us decided that it was best to let the friendship putter out. I wrote an email to him, explaining how he had hurt my feelings etc, but couldn’t send it. That evening I had my accident.

He was there in a flash, holding my hand and soothing me. He took me under his wing and took care of all my needs. Not to mention, he had his own life to contend with. He moved in with us for the first two months and helped with everything. I fell in love, couldn’t help myself.

Things became very difficult between us. He didn’t want a relationship and at the same time he had also developed feelings for me. And on the other hand, I had allowed myself the pleasure of being nurtured, which I had denied myself due to a negative past experience.

I have to admit the situation made me depressed. I found myself drowning in despair, wishing that for once in my life, I could actually enjoy the love and companionship of a man.

Well this story is not about a man and woman who fall in love and live happily ever after. It’s about my inner journey and the revelations that would stir in me ever so often. One thing is for sure, I couldn’t run away anymore – I actually had to stay put and face myself.

I also did the necessary emotional and physical meditations and a couple of Reiki sessions on myself. I needed to uncover the original negative relationship patterns, that I kept repeating. I discovered that the issues I experienced were related to the relationship between my father and myself. And through understanding and forgiveness, I was able to to confront the dynamics of my relationships and how they had affected me over the past 40 years.

All the patterns that had played out in my previous relationships began to play out and I had to deal with each issue as it arose. I realised my thoughts were creating every occurrence. If I visualised him not really wanting to help me, but doing it out of pity for me. I would sink into a mood, which would in turn affected his mood and we’d start fighting.

So I began to change how I felt about the situation and before my eyes I noticed he changed and became more loving and supportive. I then decided to test this new theory out and would intentionally change my thoughts. I watched as we fought or grew close. I endorsed that I manifest my reality and then I began to use this knowledge to help me achieve more of an enlightened outcome.

As I sat in the waiting room today – I thought about all the people I had met along this journey… How the spirit moves in mysterious ways – I thank each of them, the universe and the angels – for the help and healing that has taken place…

The doctors and nurses did an amazing job even though I lost the plot many times. I just wish there was a little more passion for ones choice of career. As one lady in the waiting room stated, “We get more love from the banks!”

The people of South Africa – I thank you for reminding me that I create my reality and that wherever I found myself, there was always a beautiful soul out there willing to be a friend and help in some small way, even if it was a smile. To me this is priceless as it reminds me of the comradeship I felt as a child and I do believe that we as South Africans are something very special.

Well today I was able to jump on my feet three times, without pain! Simultaneously I thought about the past week – how my relationship with my best friend has developed into the most loving, nourishing and unconditional experience. I feel the desire to enjoy the present moment with him without expectations and in that way allow myself the pleasure of love.

I thought about how I have evolved in the past four months and I smile…
