11 Virgo 23
We have reached the final Full Moon of this wormhole, which began on January 16. We have had three Full Moons in this wormhole, which is a lot of manifestation. Remember that each Full Moon brings forth the fruition of the seed actions we started with the New Moon. The last New Moon was an eclipse that took us on another sideways elevator ride, and this Virgo Full Moon promises to reveal a bit of what that ride was all about. More of the purpose of what we find now will become clearer once we are out of the wormhole, on March 17. There is so much more to come.
No matter what has happened to us inside this wormhole, we are here, we are still thriving, and we are able to make use of the Moon’s energies to help us. I make this statement because I believe that anyone reading this blog about the Full Moon can step up onto it with the mind’s eye to access the observer’s perspective. From there, we can see that no matter what is going on in our day to day lives, we are always thriving.
The Moon is part of our collective experience and is also incredibly personal, because the Moon represents how we experience emotion. The Moon governs all cycles on Earth, and a Virgo Full Moon is quite special, because it makes possible the integration of spirit, mind, emotion, with the physical experience.

Virgo is disposed by Chiron, the archetype of the master healer teacher. Chiron helps us locate where we feel less than, hurt, or wounded. This is where we can feel stress. It is place we usually do not care to visit often, because how to address this core belief of “less than” can seem elusive, and the steps needed to heal it repetitive. Once addressed in one context it tends to pop up again somewhere else. This is precisely its purpose, to take us to that place where we do not know what to do and at some point, surrender, so that a new strategy can emerge. Chiron empowers us to find our own inner master healer teacher and never leaves us dangling in space without guiding us to a way to identify and transform our pain.
The core function of Virgo is to make alignment possible, and that is a repetitive process as we move through this Earth journey. Once we awaken to this realignment process occurring within ourselves, we move beyond healing and into ‘wholing’. The amazing thing about “becoming whole” is the realization that we were born whole and always remain so, no matter what happens! Living on Earth requires learning that we must maintain a never-ending process of ‘wholing’, because we are continuously changing. A Virgo Full Moon inside a wormhole is the best time to recognize any issue that has eluded us while it was hidden in plain view.
The Full Moon energy can reveal our beliefs about our core issues. It can light up a core issue by showing us the patterns it creates in our lives from the observer’s perspective. And that detached, nonjudgmental perspective leads us to the decision to bring our thoughts, feelings, and actions into balance, however it may happen. Just wanting this balance can help build Self-worth. There is also a strong element of Grace to this Full Moon, as it is has just formed a new cycle with Orcus at 9 Virgo. Orcus represents our Immortal Self. Grace is the compassion that comes with realizing we are more than the 3D experiences we have, and that we are constantly surrounded by Love and support.
The yellow moon is pressed
against the dark sky,
waiting for an easy death
The Goddess of Compassion
Loves to find
Our tender places
And press them to her light heart
