Like every New + Full Moon, we have a card spread, ritual and sensory guide for you! But leading off is our fav astrologer, Winter Kosatlan, dropping some insights so you can tap, tap, tap in:
"Two days before the Spring Equinox, we are blessed with a Full Moon in Virgo which gives us the earth we need to support the manifestation of what we are building in our life.
Virgo is practical, organized and reminds us of the power of innocence. Represented by the Virgin archetype, this Moon in Virgo inspires us to ground in our purity of Self and embrace the abundance and blessings that we receive when we commit to tending to our health and wellbeing.
Earth energy is physical, representing the material world and our physical bodies. This energy, highlighted by the light of the Moon, is asking you to examine your day-to-day life and how you structure and organize your daily tasks, routines and work. Explore where adjustments can be made so that work can be done efficiently, opening up space for mindfulness practices and body nourishment, bringing overall health and wellness to all areas of your life."
This moon’s spread is really a focus on where you’re going career/work-wise. Virgos are hardworking, detail oriented, and intelligent. Why not use some of that energy to find out where your career or work is headed and what Virgo-traits you can use to shift, boost, or continue supporting yourself.
- What energies do I need to bring into my approach to my career?
- What energies do I need to release?
- What actionable items can I prioritize to reach my career goals?
- What unseen forces are at play that I should be aware of?
- What will take my career to the next level?
This is a full moon, so it’s time to enjoy feeling nourished and rejuvenated, not start new projects. That means although the focus here is on betterment of the self through organization, structure, and/or health, we don’t want to start anything too drastic- so the rituals provided are small moves that help maintain work you’re already doing.
Daily 10 Minutes: Repetition is key to all rituals, even small, everyday ones. The key here is to take only 10 minutes a day to focus more heavily on something you’re already doing. For instance, we all have to clean up from time to time, but what if you spent 10 minutes a day doing light cleaning, like picking up things that have been misplaced? Maybe you spend time exercising regularly but you always leave out the stretching portion. Why not take a daily 10 minutes to incorporate that into your routine? These aren’t major, new changes. They’re small steps to add to what you’re already doing.
Spatial Sound Cleansing: This can be done in conjunction with tidying up if you like but it doesn’t have to be. The goal here is to try a (potentially new) form of cleansing your space: cleansing with sound. For this method you can use an instrument, like a bell, tuning fork, singing bowls or drums. You also have the option to use your own body, through chants, singing, whistling, claps, or recorded sounds. These recordings can be nature sounds, music, white noise … Whatever feels cleansing to you. Many people swear by high frequency sounds to “push out” negative energy but really any sound that breaks up any stagnant energy in your space can feel cleansing.
With an instrument or your body begin making noise in the center of the room and gradually move outward until you’re satisfied that you’ve covered the space. If you are using a recording, simply put on the recording and then try to sit at the center of the room. Imagine the sound moving gradually throughout the room and pushing out negative energy. When you feel satisfied that the air has been cleared, you’re done! It’s as simple as that.
Since this mood brings Virgo energy, we’re surrounding ourselves with healthy foods, bright colors and clean scents!
Scents: Clean scents that are also invigorating are perfect for the full moon. We love tea tree, “fresh linen” scents, white tea, lavender, eucalyptus, and lemon.
Colors and textiles: Earthy tones like browns and greens are associated with Virgo, but so are bright whites. We’d suggest any pastels that are bright too, perhaps a light sage green. For fabrics, fresh linen always brings to mind feeling clean, crisp, and put together- but anything lightweight and all natural will suit the full moon energy. A pressed white linen outfit can work wonders.
Foods: For this full moon celebrate with foods that are healthy and nourishing. You know your body best - what feels nourishing for it right now? We have been super into Macro bowls recently (hello 2013!) because they’re super easy and versatile. Throwing in whatever we have in the fridge is fun and playing with layers of flavors is theeee best.
For example, try a bowl with:
Any type of bean
Something sweet - a yam works perfect!
A seed or nut for crunch!
+ If you’re a meat eater, throw in whatever sounds best to you.
We have been super obsessed with a lemon tahini dressing to top it off which is basically lemon, olive oil and tahini. Easy!
Experiment with whatever dressings and ingredients you have on hand. Tahini, chimichurri, pesto … The possibilities are endless.
Crystals: Look for crystals on this full moon that are cleansing, like black obsidian, clear or smoky quartz, black tourmaline, tigers eye, and selenite. These can remove bad energy from you and your space, eliminating unwanted stress.
