Tuesday, February 19th
8:52AM PST: Full Moon at 0°Virgo42’
A Moon in Virgo, as a general rule, is set up to help us process, prune and pick. To prime our pieces for painting and our promises for publication. To see separations between our ego assignments. To allocate efforts to where they’re best spent but never wasted.

A Full Moon in Virgo will acknowledge all the ways we’ve earned our patience with pride. Will affirm the expense of being humble. Will critique our conscientiousness when we’re overly consumed by the crazies. Will push us to the precipice of perfection but never over it.

A Moon in Virgo is always “ruled” by Mercury. This Virgo Moon is answering to the messenger, mildly mad, and moving slowly through deep Piscean waters. As a data processor who takes delight in clarity of details, blurry Pisces territory isn’t Mercury’s favorite place to be. But that doesn’t mean he can’t find some productive insight churning under the surface of the perennial pond.

Under this Virgo Full Moon, we’ll be acknowledging the culmination of projects that required incredible patience, perseverance and perceptivity around inestimable particulars. On the same day of the Full Moon, Mercury is entering retrograde pre-shadow - the period of time that sets the stage for serious review when he stations to go backwards on March 5th. Taking place in the early degrees of the mutable polarity of healing, this Moon means to help us make sense of the necessities that form the foundation of our big picture - or at least asks us to begin looking at it.

Use this time to examine where you become livid from focus on the little things. Where frustration could be fought with a lot more faith in things working out. Where support for your strategy comes from source and spirit rather than the physical force of your mental labor. Let this Moon help you flow with an optimism to which Virgo doesn’t always want to open itself. Let it be an opportunity to learn that believing and dreaming are productive in their own right. Make fantasy an integral aspect of your operations. Let looseness in your methods give way to magical lines in your magnum opus. Let listening for the poetic unfolding of information be a primary part of your process. 

If you know your rising sign and your sun sign, read both. If you only know your sun sign, that's okay too. If you like, you can read your moon sign for good measure. Horoscopes and forecasts are meant to be read as inspiration. The impact of planetary forces on our lives is more immense than we can see and a horoscope's level of resonance can vary from week to week. I suggest revisiting this page as often as you like while tasting horoscopes of a few other astrologers. Note which voices uplift your spirit. As always, take what you like and leave the rest. If you find support here, consider making a contribution.

horoscope for aries and aries rising

I am the master of my routine healing. I am the source that sends out SOS sparks when the world grows dark. When my distress signals are triggered, I will seek service as a remedy to any shortage of esteem. I will be patient with the ever-evolving aesthetics of my public persona. I will have faith that my time to shine won’t arrive a minute before I’ve tended to my shadows. When I act in accordance with my inner answers, I create comprehensive cures before superficial corrections. As Chiron enters my first house of identity, wounds wind their way to my surface. Make themselves clear so I can make more and better medicine. I will let this Moon initiate me into the ritual of healing myself from the inside out. I will consider who I want to be and how I want to feel down to the marrow deep in my bones. I will alight in awareness of the ways I’m operating that aren’t currently aligned. I will witness my impatience and my fumbling as I try to fix what isn’t inherently broken. I will be an active agent in a process that, according to Chiron, will take at least eight years to alchemize. I will remember that applying the salve, setting the bandage or taking the tincture is my job and sometimes, wounds just need time to breath, shift and mend themselves.

horoscope for taurus and taurus rising

I am getting clear that my creative process does not always need clarity. Does not need to be organized. Does not require restless focus on making everything look like the perfect romance. When I give myself permission to dream fantastic futures, I renew my faith in right now. The more optimism I grow through acts of giving over what I can’t control, the more the universe shares with me in return. I will take actions that integrate more of my wholeness so my offerings feel full to all involved, including me. I will let this Moon be a celebration of gratitude for everything I love, rather than a list of dislikes. I will allow my individuality to be in flux. When I am listening to the narrative that the bad won’t end and the good won’t last, I will see that I am stuck. I will take these signals as alarms to activate my physical sensations. I will wiggle my toes, sway my hips, feel warm breath caress my upper lip, stroke fingers through my scalp and realize in wonder how my aliveness right now can be all that matters for the moment. And that when the “moment” is over, I can begin to build a new dream any time, any day.

horoscope for gemini and gemini rising

I am the principle point-person for my powerful foundation. I am the project manager of my profound emotional property. As my accomplishments prepare themselves for a sincere review, this Moon encourages a kinder voice than my normally sharp but detached dialogue. This Moon asks me to find gratitude for the grace found in partnership. Wants me to be optimistic about all I’ve built and all I’ve yet to uncover. Is an advocate for the poetic part of my process - the element that enjoys seeking as much as teaching. I can be an expert in anything I want as long as I encourage my expertise in the mind of a beginner. While the Sun lights up my tenth house of career, I will remember to come and go like the wind that I am. I will observe how opening my secret escapades to the public can stop me from feeling safe. I will right myself with rest and a little retreat. I will treat my body as the temple that it is, the home that holds me, and the shore that the waves continue to kiss every time I return back to me.

horoscope for cancer and cancer rising

This Moon croons over the community that ultimately cares for me. Lights up my love for my brothers and sisters, be they bound by blood or secured with strings of similar standards for sweetness. It is important that I recognize where my love renders me most profoundly powerless. Compels me to critique and control. Emphasizes where I depend on the safe sentiments of others in order to secure my own soundness. This Moon points out where my hard lines are blocking me from the higher teachings of what love has to offer. I will learn by reviewing and renewing my faith in my brethren. As my intimate partnerships undergo mega metamorphosis, I will trust in their aesthetic alignment. I will Let Others Voluntarily Evolve. I will continue the good soul work of carving out my own container for the divine dreams my soul is still learning how to drive. I will see where slowing down gives me space to see. I commit to finding inspiration in the scenes I would miss if I were only focused on a narrow vision of what I can achieve with my ever-evolving tribe. I will dare to dream something different.

horoscope for leo and leo rising

I am the wizard that weaves my wealth. I am the star coin in my bank. As this Moon illuminates my second house of finances, I might be questioning my strategies in the art of saving. I will remember that resources are plenty when they are shared. That determining what I value requires my patience and my practice as I break down walls between conditioning and truth. I will take actions towards my career that correlate to clear investments in the growth of my joy. I will allow myself time to wade through continually changing currents without needing to always know where to flow. I will trust in the cycle of physical assets as they arrive and depart of their own accord. And I will remember that as a lion, I always have loyalty and love to offer. That I am whole when I let my fire burn like an open flame on a cold winter night. That I am most alive when I trust that the warmth I give will always find a way to give back to me. If I am questioning my worth, I need simply see that my light is as priceless as the Sun that loves us every day into life and never asks the Earth for anything in return.

horoscope for virgo and virgo rising

When I practice the art of integration I am whole. When I cut along the current, I can swim downstream. If I am separating, let it be for the sake of sewing myself back together once I have collected patches of consciousness. Once I have witnessed my holes as openings. Once I have seen what is needed from me, for me. If I’m letting go of what I don’t need, let it be so I can hold tight to what I do. As Mars migrates through my ninth house of higher consciousness, I will take action towards learning what helps me harness more hope. I will revive my creative projects by releasing physical barriers that block my vision. I will luxuriate in the aesthetics of fresh untainted space. I will lean on the changing nature of my partnerships as the key to more kindness, care and compassion for my process. I will practice floating with faith rather drowning in judgement of myself and others. I will let the water hold me.

horoscope for libra and libra rising

Sometimes, I find my sisters in my suffering. My sweetness in the mess. My grace in the gifts of desperation and the mystery of my moodiness. This Moon urges me to untangle myself with more kindness. Asks me to come undone with copious compassion. Seeks to teach me how suppressing my most painful secrets can be a disservice to the someones who need to see how human I am. As my home life contracts in order to change, I will align myself with the appeal in letting go. I will organize myself to sink into the synchronicity of soft lines. I will revel in the routine of cultivating concern for everyone who crosses my path. I will begin with the care I require in my body, mind and soul. And when my world feels like a prison, I will break free from any chains I placed on myself.


horoscope for scorpio and scorpio rising

My community is a construct of my own creations. The seeds of my future hopes will bear more mature fruit when I make time for fun right now. As Mercury revs itself up to review my romances, I will revel in the progress I’ve made with the groups that get me. I am powerful when I’m learning to let go of needing to communicate flawlessly. I will channel less chatter so I can emphasize the quality of my expressions. I will recognize that the actions I take in intimate partnerships are like signing a contract of committed consciousness. I will let there be ample space and time for me to assimilate new rules. I will put forth faith in the innocence that comes with being human. I will exercise my endurance as I learn many ways to innovate. I will expand my ideas to include my intelligence as an advantage that always gains me ground. I will risk seeing my incredible capacity to see.


horoscope for sagittarius and sagittarius rising

This Moon celebrates the course of events that communicate my calling back to my community. Sheds kind light on the clarity of character I’ve mustered as I’ve learnt from and counseled others in the most professional sense. I will greet my benevolence with gratitude; my easy and kind nature has been the key to many reputable doors. Meanwhile, this Moon also highlights dilemmas that arrive when I say the details don’t matter. As I review my resources with a critical eye, I will cut down and curate my expenses so they accurately align with my ambitions. I will note that my home needs some loving attention; might adore some decluttering. I will take time to consider what I need to be comfortable. Then I will distribute everything I don’t desire to someone who does. I will relish the delight of giving in doable ways. 

horoscope for capricorn and capricorn rising

I am a teacher of hope. A humble participant and active healer of higher systems. This Moon recognizes my thorough study of all the components that construct optimum faith. It emphasizes where I am conscious and where I am critical of theories that do not hold for me. When I question conditioning, I give myself freedom to grow. I will be open with my observations so my asks open doors for others to analyze. Perfecting healing processes is impossible because individual and collective wounds evolve as they are tended. We learn more about medicine as we need to use it, side effects pointing to all the ways it isn’t moral. When in doubt, I will bring myself back to the basics. I will remember my skepticism keeps my awareness alive as long as I secure my personal connection to spirit. I will see it’s not my sole responsibility to right the wrongs of the overly-religious but I will do my small part. I will be patient with the people who are attempting to offer me faith. I will remember the immune system might be suffering multiple wounds. It’s okay for me to build my unique concoction of curative self-care. I will continue my commitment to adapt rather than self-abandon. 

horoscope for aquarius and aquarius rising

This Moon highlights everything I’ve learned about the art of sharing. Takes pride in where I’ve pinched pennies so I can put my money where my mouth is. Realizes all the work I’ve done to register what I treasure. As my second house of worth gets ready for review, I will remember how much I value collective consciousness. I will look to the generosity of communities I’ve cultivated. I will plunge myself into the pile of compassion that is always sitting in my bank when I need it. Mars moving through my fourth house of home and ancestry has me activating spaces set up for everyone to feel secure. While rest can seem inaccessible in this state, I can count on the enduring goodness that comes from family, be they chosen or of origin. Mars in Taurus supports my mind-body connection - I will let the sensations in my soma show me where to go and what to do. I will practice this active refocusing on my emotions with a lot less mental analysis and a lot more thrill at the discovery of how much I am capable of feeling.

horoscope for pisces and pisces rising

My partners are goddess-sent. My intimates are a mirror for my own growth. The history I have in relationships and the one I am writing are part of the same sea. This Moon illuminates all the things I’ve learned about myself through my close connection to others. Reminds me how patience can take the shape of many different streams. Honors every choice I made to stay, to leave, or even to return because my river never stops running. As my first house of identity prepares itself for some change, I will remember how much my evolution is supported by my collaborators. I will gently let go of groups that aren’t aligning with my dreams, so space gets made for sincere support. Pisces season, sitting in a square to Jupiter, will be an affirmation that I am transitory in nature. That my work thrives on evolving every time I find myself disillusioned. That flowing downstream is really the only way to go. This Moon brings me some much needed earth. I will remember that matter is part of spirit. I will yield to the containers that want to hold me so my current of compassion can seep into every crevice.
