Virgo Full Moon 22nd February 2016

It's a full moon when the sun and moon stand opposite each other in the zodiac, and today at around 18.20pm here in the UK the Virgo moon reaches its most opposite position from the Pisces sun. 

The full moon symbolises the coming together and alignment of opposites - it's a time when situations composed of seemingly irreconcilable differences can find some balance and connection.

Virgo is the sign that appreciates detail and definition, while Pisces is just fine with a thumbnail sketch. Virgo believes it's the little things that matter, while Pisces prefers a soft focus filter. Pisces lives for the experience of 'oneness' (falling in love, appreciating a sunset or piece of music, etc) while Virgo enjoys categorising (everything has its place).

Both very different signs, yet with elements that can work together and co-create brilliantly if both sides are incorporated in positive ways. 

Notice during the days before and after any full moon where this balancing of opposites is taking place for you right now; within the self and in outside circumstances, and appreciate what the movement into alignment moves within you and around you.

February 2016 Horoscopes

21st March – 20th April
First week is about gaining some clarity on certain situations linked to work ambitions or long-term creative plans. It involves stepping away from power struggles, especially around the 6th, and holding onto your love of professionalism and an easy life. New moon on the 8th is about new participation with groups and teams, as well as friends who you really click with. Again, it’s about choosing to keep on track with what you want in the long-run, rather than reacting or over-reacting to others temporary moods or opinions. After the 19th and especially the final week you’re moved powerfully by your own moods, which works well when focused on what you want.

21st April – 21st May
How you see things, your view of the world and yourself has been changing dramatically over recent years, and again this month there might be events that transform or revolutionise your opinions and beliefs, sometimes suddenly or unexpectedly. New plans with partners (whether in personal or professional relationships) come into focus around the 8th, and it’s ok if it doesn’t seem easy at first as the rest of the month is about smoothing things out and finding the flow. Links to groups and gatherings are important in this somehow; perhaps it’s where your creativity opens easiest. Notice this around the emotionally defining full moon on the 22nd.

22nd May – 21st June
You can achieve a lot during Feb, especially the first week when the planet patterns speak of your focus and ability for intense concentration of effort; also your discipline and patience dealing with change/transformation. New moon on the 8th is about new ways of seeing things (e.g. travel or education), and integrating new ways of doing things. You’re also reaching for balance, such as between home/work, or private/public life, and events around the final week might bring this to a head. It might also bring creative or romantic inspiration, as this is a month of open hearts and infinite imagination.

22nd June – 22nd July
You are the natural nurturer of the zodiac, someone who gets emotionally connected easily, and who sincerely cares. Sometimes you take on too much because of this, and then you feel no option but to shut down and get cautious about opening up again. February has a lot of demands on your time that might trigger this (especially first week and midmonth), but the key is stepping back before you reach your limit. Recognising earlier when it’s time to replenish and nourish yourself means you’ll be refreshed for getting the most out of this magical month; especially events around the sharing and caring full moon on the 22nd.

23rd July – 23rd August
Lots of focus on your relationships, contracts and agreements this month, with a supportive new moon on the 8th that symbolises new beginnings with significant others. You might not be up for fully sharing your agenda or revealing motives until later in the month, but co-operation and collaboration are calling you, symbolised by communication planet Mercury and harmony-seeking Venus also arriving in your relationship chart (13th and 17th), indicating events that encourage bridge-building and transparency. Your mood moves much more to openness from the 19th; especially under the soft-hearted yet sensible full moon energy on the 22nd.
24th August – 22nd September
You’re in problem-solving mode for much of the month. The new moon on the 8th is a doorway for new solutions, and there’s helpful information or communication from the 13th. Those who are in harmony with your aims are more visible to you from the 17th, and you’re more receptive to some brilliant new ideas then too. From the 19th it’s very much about relationships, partnerships, contracts and agreements. Events last November (approximately) seems relevant to this, and there’s a really important full moon in your sign on the 22nd that symbolises things both coming to a head relationship-wise, and moving forward.

23rd September – 23rd October
First week might require some deep breaths (especially 6th), as tricky dynamics dominate certain situations, and it’s tempting to get pulled into power struggles or control dramas. Seriously, rise above it all (even though you might be right!), and you’ll end up feeling pleased with yourself in the long run. The new moon on the 8th is about new beginnings related to creative projects, fun, romance and entertainment. From then it’s easier to stay in the here and now rather than get lost in the past or anticipating the future. Your ruler Venus catches this vibe from the 17th, which means you’re feeling good to go with rest of February’s flow.

24th October – 22nd November
Mighty Mars is one of your ruling planets and it’s still in your sign during February. This indicates huge reserves of strength and energy available to you when you need it; meaning current situations are making high demands on you physically, mentally and/or emotionally (most noticeable during first week of Feb). A new moon on the 8th is about new beginnings linking to home and family, and also about how comfortable your comfort zones are right now. From midmonth and especially final week, the focus moves to the healing power of fun and friendship, which is a potent combination around the 22nd during an enchanted and restorative full moon.

23rd November – 21st December
Some situations might feel undone or like unfinished business up to midmonth, and yet it feels like the perfect place to leave things open to resume at a later date. It also leaves you to focus more fully on other situations that you want more immediate fulfilment on. Generous Jupiter has positive links to your income and resources chart (especially 10th), and communication is more harmonious and meaningful from the 13th (and 17th).  After that, especially around full moon time on the 22nd, it’s about balancing opposites, e.g. work-life and home-life (it links to last November somehow).

22nd December – 20th January
First week of February clears up some unfinished business from December and January, maybe linking to career, or long-term plans involving home and family. It involves some complex dynamics in situations, which means uncontrollable elements, so it’s important to be able to trust the process a little bit. Around new moon time (8th) up to midmonth it’s easier to go with the flow of this, and you’re feeling at the centre of some important new beginnings and changes. The planets then form a significant pattern (strongest 22nd and 28th), that has links to events last November. Communication, compassion and consideration are its key components.

21st January – 18th February
The sun (focus and attention) is in your sign till the 19th, Mercury (your communication and logic) arrives from 13th, and Venus (your Love and money) from the 17th. It all means the world is on your wavelength; it’s easier to get your message across, and you’re more intuitive about people and situations, as you’re wired for harmony and bridge-building with others. The annual new moon in your sign on the 8th symbolises an open doorway for new beginnings. It’s the time to let yourself dream big, and watch how the process of grounding your dreams into reality happens automatically unless you block it with doubts.

19th February – 20th March
First half of February is more reflective and introspective. This doesn’t mean things aren’t happening, just you prefer more time to decide what it means for you (especially around 8th). Events linked to friendships, groups and gatherings are significant, particularly during the first week, when there are some big changes and transformation to integrate. From the 19th when the sun moves into your sign you feel more in your element, and a magical full moon on the 22nd brings out your imaginative, artistic side in full detail. It’s also a time for healing in important relationships, and for trusting intuition when it comes to contracts or agreements (there’s a link to last November with that).
