Embracing diversity, embracing our differences and accepting each other with child-like love is crucial to the advancement of humanity.


This Full Moon sits on me so I find it both interesting and heavy to write about it. When your identity and your emotions are not just looking at you in the mirror but sitting on you in your seat, you must absorb and integrate. The little details are all important. Everything is to be digested, from the physical to the emotional and spiritual. It is truly fullness. This is not only important for me as a Sun in Virgo or for other Sun in Virgo folks, but for all of us, as the Full Moon in the Harvest Mother visits us this month.

Sun in Pisces, 3° 34′ / Moon in Virgo, 3° 34′

The Sun’s transit in Pisces is a spiritual call to come to terms with situations and relationships and finish thing — tie up loose ends and/or release. Pisces calls us to make peace with that which has frustrated us in the past so we can move into the Spring season. There are things that have remained unresolved for a long time and now they must begin to be worked through and worked out rather than ignored. With the Sun in Aries coming and  New Moon in Aries heading our way, it would be best to resolve our differences by accepting them and creating a unified healed future. Why plan for anger and more frustration? There is nothing wrong with living in love and peace.

What preceded this Full Moon in Virgo is represented by the the karmic degree of Virgo 3: Two Guardian Angels Bringing Protection. Although you may not realize it, you are not alone. You are being protected, if not guided. The ancestors are watching. Feel good about yourt direction and even when stressed or feeling indecisive, you are not along. Ask for help.. Trust that help will show up when it is truly needed. Avoid being a victim or allowing orthers to victimize you. Be creative in seeking solutions when necessary. Use rational planning, creativity and spirituality to help create connection and resolution at this Full Moon in Virgo.

The Sabian symbol for this lunation is one that brings me a great sense of joy and fills my heart with feelings of love. It has been the guiding symbol of my life, long before I became aware of astrology or Sabian symbols. I was born into a diverse family and it has been not only my family culture but is also reflected in my friendships and relationships.

I suspect that we will hear about children’s organizations and what is happening with them behind the scenes, in the coming two weeks (if not longer) before the New Moon in Pisces. We may see some grand announcements about organizations such as Save the Children International, UNICEF, and Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts.

Embracing diversity, embracing our differences and accepting each other with child-like love is crucial to the advancement of humanity. We spend a lot of time doing and saying things to harm each other and reject each other, as adults. We could learn from children. They accept each other without regard to race, color, creed or religion. They only learn hatred when adults teach it to them by example or instruction.

The Harvest Mother (Virgo) wants us to open our arms wide and joyfully accept those who are different from us in whatever manner. Open out arms and embrace, share our resources, look beyond the surface and share the love. The consequences of that are beautiful. The harvest is bountiful and delicious. There is enough for all. Organization and planning has made sure of that and we can reap a good harvest down the road if we plant seeds of love today.

But we adults are not very good at this. We plant seeds of hatred. We have KKK marches and stab people with poles attached to American flags. We fire dark-skinned people based on skin in organizations that publicly proclaim to be protectors of children of color around the world.

Syrian Refugee Crisis

A clear example of this moment in time is reflected in Europe. There is a crisis in Denmark and other European countries, where the people in positions of power in government do not want to open their home or hearts to these people who are fleeing horrible conflict. They are being met with inhumanity. They are being treated as less than a human being and certainly less than the people residing in the places to which they are fleeing. They are being put in tents inside camps in the middle of winter, having their valuable taken from them, being told their marriages are invalid and that they will be forcibly divorced and put in separate camps, they are being labeled as criminals and hinted to be terrorists. Plans are being made to put them to work immediately (at a low wage) when they arrived, traumatized and exhausted. The white-skinned reluctant hosts are making sure the dark-skinned refugees know they are not welcome and are not on the same level of humanity as them. *sigh*

Future Perspective:  A Person Becoming Aware Of Nature Spirits And Normally Unseen Spiritual Energies

Where we are heading with this energy has much to do with spirituality. That is a hard one for everyone to accept because so many insist that we are nothing but meat sacks walking around with no spiritual existence…only a “rational mind”. But there will be acknowledgement of another level of awareness and it is spiritual. The ways in which we are judging and rejecting or accepting and embracing others will be brough forth to us. There will be consequences reflected in our society and in our individual lives. We need to connect with one another. People are hurting at a soul level.

Pay attention to your intuition. Meditate and pray. You will notice things you did not see or understand. Even if you consciously avoid doing this, things will come into your awareness. There will be reflections in our environments. Embrace your clairsentience or clairvoyance. It may feel uncomfortable but it will be informative. Embrace your creativity — writing, painting, graphic design, film-making etc. Something will come through.

Be attuned to your body. If you are female, pay attention to your menstrual cycles. There is something important about them that you need to know. Everyone should emotionally nurture themselves right now as we are coming into Spring. The Winter chill is melting and giving way to the softening warmer vibes of Spring.

Do not be surprised if there is more talk of spirituality and spiritual wellbeing and its role in our human existence. We are being called to do better, get along better, embrace one another. We must connect at that soul level.
