The full moon this Feb 19th, 10.53AM EST, is at 0˚ (powerful!) and will be the closest to the earth that it will be all year, so there is no chance of missing the big, bright and beautiful moon this Tuesday. Wednesday 20th Feb at 2.53AM for my Aussies.
Virgo is a symbol of our day-to-day happenings; your routine, habits, state of mind and your relationship with your physical self. This full moon is another testament to some important upgrades, with concentration on the subtlest parts of our lives, in particular, your physical health.
Of course, there will be a slightly different experience for everyone, based on your personal birth chart, if you would like a fully personalised full moon reading, click here!
BTW this full moon is the pinnacle point of the September 2018 New Moon, so take the time to reflect and celebrate your growth regarding who you have become and what you have been building for the past six months.
Before we get into too much full moon detail – a little break down of what’s going on with the planets:
Virgo full moon at 0˚ energy:
Pisces sun at 0˚energy:
Sun, Neptune and Mercury all in Pisces:
- What you think is real may actually not be, something you believe to be true turns out to be fake!
Pluto, Venus and Saturn in Capricorn:
Love the Earth
Venus is in the middle of two very heavy planets; Pluto and Saturn. Venus in Capricorn energy is all about loving and feeling appreciation for the earth we live on. It’s a sign that reminds us to plant and harvest with the natural rhythms of nature. It’s a sign to go with and not against the flow of nature and being in sync. Time to get cosy and flowy with our dear Mother Nature.
Mars in Taurus:
A reminder to be grounded – feet firmly on the ground.
Chiron moves out of Pisces into Aries:
This is important; Chrion is your Wounded Warrior, that when called upon, can help to heal your deepest wounds.
Chiron has completed his nine-year voyage through the emotional water sign Pisces and will not revisit it for decades – starting it’s new course with fiery Aries that it will stay with until 2027!
Chiron in Aries will help us to heal any wounds revolving around the identity. Time to HEAL and get on our own path. This is an exciting, liberating time that is beginning.

COLOURS AND COLOUR THERAPY DURING THIS PHASE
Virgo colours – Natural Brown and Moss Green
Natural Brown is secure, stable, enduring and industrious.
Brown is a good colour to wear if you are feeling unfocused and need to ground yourself. It is also a colour used for protection of outside influences. However too much brown can make you afraid to embrace change and anything new or unfamiliar.
Crystals to use – Tiger’s Eye.
Moss Green is open, grounded, sympathetic, compassionate, generous and relaxed. Green is in the middle of the colour spectrum and holds the balance between the red (hot) and blue (cold) ends. If you are lacking in green energy, you are likely to be off centre. Green is one of the safest most relaxing colours, but is best avoided where mentally you need to act fast on your feet.
Crystal to use – Peridot.
Pisces colours – Turquoise and Light Blue
Turquoise is composed, clear, creative, calm and healing.
Wearing turquoise protects from negative influences, boosts the immune system, has anti-inflammatory effects and helps wounds to heal faster. It’s a great colour to wear when you have a cold!
Crystals to use – Turquoise
Light Blue is a mixture of White and Blue so we must look into both colours.
Blue is introspective, contemplative, serene, fluent, tactful, sincere and faithful.
If you have difficulty sleeping, it can help to visualise or breathe in blue. Eating from a blue plate can help reduce the amount you consume. Eating blue coloured foods can alleviate a ‘red’ condition such as a stress related headache. Blue has astringent and antiseptic properties and can help treat infections. However, if you feel depressed, low, physically cold and if there is a tightness or stiffness in the body, you should avoid this colour.
White is pure, innocent, orderly and spiritual. White is associated with spirituality, psychics, healers and meditation. It is used in channelling white light to those in need of healing to cleanse the energy system. Too much white can be stark, cold, colourless and clinical.
Crystals to use – Aquamarine
Chiron in Aries colour – Red
Red is a very powerful colour and should be avoided by anyone who suffers from high blood pressure, heart problems, quick temper and anger problems. If you lack energy and vitality, procrastinate and have a sluggish circulatory system, it is good to wear or surround yourself with red. Drinking water energised under a red lamp or a red bottle full of water put outside under the sun is great. Eating red foods will help to restore your energy levels and give you the drive and motivation to achieve your goals.
Crystals to use – Ruby or Garnet
Enjoy the beautiful and exciting energies,
