10 Mar The week ahead: March 9th through March 15th of 2020:
We have a full moon tonight in the sign of Virgo. This is a sign that loves to be of service and especially around health, so we’re talking your doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, veterinarians and helpers of the zodiac. This sign also loves to organize and improve, so if you show up on their doorstop a hot mess express and you allow them to rework your crazy, you’ve just set their heart a flutter. They can also be known for being a bit detached emotionally with a touch of judgmental, but they prefer to look at feelings objectively so they can get right to the heart of the matter. You also don’t hear this much, but every Virgo I’ve ever known is absolutely hilarious. These guys have some of the best sense of humor and I think it stems from their ability to pick something a part, figure how it works, and comment on the absurdity of how it was even functioning in the first place.
Pairing this with our season in Pisces, you’ve got two signs that couldn’t be further a part. That’s how every full moon works though; these two signs that speak to different themes talk about the extremes we may be facing and feeling to help us find a middle ground. Where Virgo is grounded and earthy, Pisces is free like a flowing river. Where Virgo is detached emotionally, Pisces is in the thick of the feelings. But what they both excel at is helping others, being selfless by looking outside of oneself and seeing where they can make a difference in this insane world.
So maybe that’s our lesson at this full moon- where in our life or community can we step up and lend a hand, get to the heart of the issue while showing up compassionately, and heal ourselves in a holistic manner that allows for our mind and heart to work in harmony?
Oh yeah, and Mercury went direct today, too! Hells yeah! 💖
So how can we work with the energy of this week? My advice is this: Make a choice tonight. If you’ve been siting on the fence about what to do, where to go, or how to be, just choose. It’s time to make a commitment to yourself, to what you really want and to how you’re ready to show up for that. Extra points if you get outside this week and allow yourself to get inspired with a plan when in the woods, by the water, or just putting bare feet on the grass. Just know you’re in the right place at the right time if what you decide has you being of service in some way.
Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick one, two, or all three cards–choose what you’re drawn to). The top card is the overarching theme for everyone and it’s something to keep in mind or to remember, no matter what energy shows up for you as the week goes on. The stone you see in the picture above is Azurite in Malachite. Azurite-Malachite is an exceptional conductor of energy, bringing a grounded, more integrated process in healing physical dis-ease. The blue ray penetrates and moves energy, calming stress levels within the system while the green ray facilitates a deep healing force. It may also be used to activate the Third Eye in cleansing the subconscious of emotionally charged thoughts or negative feelings, and restoring a higher and clearer mental state. It assists in dissolving egocentric traits, dispelling conceit, arrogance and vanity, and instills a willingness toward flexibility and individuality based on a universal connection to “All.” Azurite-Malachite’s combination of energies is highly conducive to meditation by allowing one to go deep within the self, without fear, in order to be sustained, absolved, and reborn into the light, completely aware of the genesis at all times.

Overarching theme: Eight of Swords: The Eight of Swords speaks of our clouded perceptions which prevent us from seeing beyond our own self limiting beliefs. At the root of his key, we may also be asked to consider how we are processing your thoughts each day, as fear-based thinking may stunt our view of the world if we habitually remain rooted in a state of illusion. If you feel affected by external circumstances (or other people), it may be time to expand your awareness and look at the choices that are available to you. If you feel powerless, think about how you can activate your own inner strength and take control of your path. There may be more than one solution available to you, or an alternate route which you have yet to explore. When we are courageous in seeking out new experiences or perspectives, our inner dimension becomes more open and expansive. Questions to ask yourself this week: How can I expand my awareness and rise? Are there any internal or external obscurities in my life? Your mantra this week: I am ready to look beyond this veil. I am open and ready to receive. Additional Meanings: Isolation • Choice • Bondage • Restriction • Illusion.
