A Full Moon approaches in the earthy, practical sign of Virgo – the sign of the healer. This Full Moon on 9 March 2020 is also called the “Worm Moon”, which, as unpleasant as the name sounds, is simply because this is the time of year when the earthworms emerge from the cold ground, signifying warmer times ahead (in the Northern Hemisphere). It’s a glimpse into the coming Spring and a period where evening begins to thaw out once again! New beginnings are just around the corner.
As with all Full Moons, it’s about culmination and reaching conclusions to events set in motion 6 months ago, on the Virgo New Moon around September of 2019.

About the Virgo Full Moon
The Moon enjoys being in an earth sign – it feels nurturing and stable. Virgo is a sign that’s related to security and having a plan, and this Full Moon might see certain plans “coming together”. Virgo is also quite an analytical sign, so we might feel, collectively, an increase in our mental energies, and it’s important to watch that our thoughts don’t turn over-critical and self-judgemental. Practicing self-compassion is a very important topic over this Full Moon, as well as watching our boundaries and having healthier habits.
Keywords for this Virgo Full Moon are: groundedness, action, plans in motion, health, detoxing, boundaries, compassion, healing, service, practicality and security.
Energies affecting this Full Moon
The ruler of the sign of Virgo is Mercury – and Mercury is planet of communication and the mind. Mercury has been Retrograde over the last several weeks, only to begin going direct and behaving himself once again as this Full Moon culminates. What conversations can you start having now, conversations that perhaps went awry over the last few weeks? Mercury is now in Aquarius, inviting clearer communication and better decisions that we’ve made in a while!
The Sun and Moon are also configured to Neptune, planet of boundaries, escape, illusion, and spirituality. And so, this is a highly spiritual Full Moon, though we do have to be very careful of making sure that we are not fooling ourselves – things may not be quite as they seem over this time!
Fortunately, there are some grounded links to other earth planets – Mars, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn – which allows manifestation of the dreams supplied by Neptune, and could signal a time where you see those dreams start coming to life!
How to make the Most of the Full Moon for each Sign
Aries and Aries Rising
This Full Moon shines a light on your habits, Aries – where are you escaping, and where could you create healthier habits for yourself? Be very careful not to deceive yourself about the things you need to change but could be resistant to.
Taurus and Taurus Rising
In compatible Virgo, this Full Moon for you, Taurus, feels loving and giving. It’s all about balancing that in your love, and being sure that you are allowing yourself to receive as well as share. Don’t allow those lines to be crossed though, or else you could feel taken advantage of.
Gemini and Gemini Rising
Things seem a little confusing for you over this Full Moon, Gemini. On one hand, you feel like withdrawing into a cocoon, and on the other, you’re out there, shining in the world. Are you showing who you really are, or what you want people to think you are? Be true to yourself, Gemini.
Cancer and Cancer Rising
This Full Moon asks you what beliefs you need to shed in order to live more authentically. Cancer. Big conversations may also be had over this time – be sure to mean what you say, and say what you mean. Listen with your heart and not your head!
Leo and Leo Rising
This time is one in which you see a particular financial matter which has been brewing come to a head, and it’s time to realise where you may be getting exploited. Only you can do something about it Leo – so be sure to set things straight. As much you may want to give, keep something for yourself, too.
Virgo and Virgo Rising
A Full Moon in your sign marks the climax of events set in motion since your last birthday, Virgo. How far have you come and what have you achieved? Could you find ways of shedding even more of what you no longer need in your life?
Libra and Libra Rising
This Full Moon is one that you need to take time out, Libra. Find a moment of escape from reality and responsibility – and make sure that the ways in which you take time out are good for you. Nature, travel, long walks and music are all great ways to de-stress – just don’t reach for the wine.
Scorpio and Scorpio Rising
You’ve reached a point with your friendships in which you have to draw a line, Scorpio. It’s time to take action if you want things to be balanced and fair. You’ll be driven to finally speak your truth, and it could be transformative for you.
Sagittarius and Sagittarius Rising
Things at work are shifting now, Sagittarius, and it can be hard to predict where they will go. It’s going to be supremely important that you keep your eyes open for any misconceptions or deceptions that are likely to occur around this time – things are not what they seem right now.
Capricorn and Capricorn Rising
The things you want to harness to bring growth into your life are available to you over this Full Moon, Capricorn, as long as you clearly define what it is that you want. It’s time to expand and get in touch with what you need from a spiritual level. Certain studies come to a culmination now, and you could feel rather proud of yourself!
Aquarius and Aquarius Rising
This could feel like an emotionally intense Full Moon for you, Aquarius, and it’s asking you to look at how you value yourself, and if the last few months have honoured your talents – or if you have allowed yourself to simply be exploited. Now’s the time to draw that important line.
Pisces and Pisces Rising
This Full Moon has a culmination in your relationship zone, Pisces, and it’s either going to be about letting someone go, or reaching a high point when it comes to teamwork. However, don’t buy into anything just yet – wait for the dust to clear before you draw any conclusions.
3 Tips for making the most of the Full Moon in Virgo
1. Get Grounded
Because of the strong connections to planet Neptune, dissolver of boundaries, it’s important to get grounded over the Full Moon in Virgo. Eat foods that make you feel nourished, go for walks, get out of your head and try to find some clarity. Be careful of what you put in motion – make sure it’s aligned to your dreams.
With many positive links to planets in ambitious Capricorn, it’s a Full Moon that you can really manifest and make things happen – or let them go. You could be feeling spurred into action, motivated and goal-oriented. Once again, check and double-check that your goals are realistic.
3. Release Bad Habits
All Full Moons are a time of release – and with the Sun and Moon in the healing zodiac signs of Pisces and Virgo, it’s a perfect time to give up smoking, drinking or any other addictive behaviours that are holding you back from living your best life.
Summary of the Full Moon in Virgo
This is a contradictory Full Moon – it’s both grounded as well as imaginative, and it’s the type of Full Moon where big manifestations can happen – just as long as you are well aware of what you are choosing to manifest.
Neptune makes things a little bit unrealistic still, and Mercury recently Retrograde needs a bit of time in order to make better decisions. Let things unfold naturally over the next few days, and follow your intuition closely – look for signs and allow yourself to be guided!
