If you would like to listen to an audio recording of my observations of this full Moon, you can do so here.
March's full Moon occurs on March 6 in Australia and March 5 in the United States. This full Moon is in Virgo, which can be a rather sober sign, especially when it's on Virgo 15: The Lacy Ornamental Handkerchief. This can be quite a stoic, 'oh, don't worry about me, I'm alright', type of placement, but I think there are so many other things going on that belie the surface values of this Virgoan lunation. This is a rather Chironic full Moon with Chiron conjunct the Sun and opposing the Moon - the Sun is at Pisces 15, Chiron is on Pisces 18 and the Moon is on Virgo 15, so, both the Moon and then the Sun aspect Chiron soon after the full Moon. This interesting and rather rebellious Virgo full Moon leads up to the total solar eclipse on March 20, which is a fabulous eclipse and brings a promise of many new beginnings, new realizations and opportunities. First, though, we have a few issues to work through with this full Moon.
