Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:
This Tarot Deck: Universal Waite
What has traditionally been known as the Moon card refers to a deep state of sensitivity and imaginative impressionability, developed within a womb of deep relaxation. Here we dream and go into trance, have visions and receive insights, wash in and out with the psychic tides, and
experience deep mystical and/or terrifying realities beyond our ordinary senses. The full moon and/or eclipse cycle charted by the Magi (as in some of the earliest Moon card images) exemplify this as a mechanism that Nature uses to expand consciousness.
The variants of the courtly lovers (representing skillful use of the sex force) or the man sleeping it off under the tree (use of drugs to alter consciousness) are also traditional avenues for tapping this primal force. Human interest in higher states propels us to the frontiers of consciousness, where we cannot always control what happens. The Moon card represents the ultimate test of a soul’s integrity, where the membrane between self and the Unknown is removed, and the drop of individuality reenters the Ocean of Being. What transpires next is between a soul and its Maker.
Full Moon in Virgo
Saturday, March 19, 11:10 am PDT, 2:10 pm EDT
The high emotional tides of this Full Moon are intensified by excitable Uranus’ conjunction with the Sun and opposition to the Moon. Normally, this lunation in orderly Virgo contrasts pragmatism with the Sun in Pisces’ penchant for fantasy as we seek to rebalance this relationship. Uranus’ presence, though, shatters the atmosphere with sudden emotional shifts and unexpected events. Flexibility is a must when dealing with these inner and outer surprises because rigidity only increases the tension. Open minds reveal short cuts and help liberate us from boring routines and outmoded dreams.
We can use logic while seeking solutions to the complex issues of life today with the analytical Virgo Full Moon at 2:10 pm EDT. However, the Sun in psychic Pisces tells us that it’s also okay to rely on our irrational intuition. This conflict is made more difficult because the Full Moon quincunxes confusing Neptune. Thankfully, the Moon enters fair-minded Libra at 4:03 pm, helping us to restore balance between our cool heads and our warm hearts.
Although you may have a lot of work on your plate today, boredom sets in quickly. However, it’s not time yet to leave your current routine behind, even if your fantasies of escape are quite vivid. Don’t let go of your dreams; just put them on the back burner for now. After your commitments are fulfilled you can explore ways to break free.
You may play the role of the serious romantic today and could benefit from stirring up interest within an existing relationship or looking for a new one. But your somber approach could prevent you from reaching your goals. Fortunately, a sudden breakthrough can change everything in an instant. If you are struck by the light of truth now, don’t fight it.
Normally, you make promises with the intent of keeping them, but this isn’t such a normal day. Something unexpected could occur, causing you to go back on your word and giving you a bit of explaining to do. But looking for reasons may be futile now. Instead of trying to figure out what happened, concentrate on improving the current situation. Focus your attention on being practical and save the philosophical inquiry for another day.
Your goals may shift today, leaving you floundering with uncertainty as you approach the weekend. Changing your schedule might not be worth the stress; just follow through with your previous commitments, exactly as promised. Nobody has to know what you are thinking now, even if your heart isn’t being fed by your current actions. Nevertheless, don’t keep your thoughts inside because you’ll feel a lot freer after they are out in the open.
You may be very hard on yourself today, even if you feel the emotional support of others through their words and praise. Still, you are tempted to ignore a friend’s optimistic perspective or might even question his loyalty. Your non-conformist point of view could precipitate a crisis if you begin to doubt your own judgment. Simply employ the healthiest strategy possible based upon what you already know.
Today’s Virgo Full Moon in your 1st House of Physicality is likely creating stress in your body. How you are able to move with this intense energy flow could be a mystery, yet your happiness depends upon finding a sensible solution. Don’t try to force the issue. When others see that you can be graceful under pressure, they will continue to accept you as their leader, whether or not you asked for the part.
You may be feeling a bit discouraged today and it could be particularly difficult to shake off the negative energy. You might attempt to share a previously hidden story, yet the more you talk, the less you’ll be able to remember about your problem. The more you attempt to reconstruct your buried feelings, the more elusive they become. Just relax and don’t try to change anything. Your happiness may be waiting around the very next corner.
Today’s Full Moon floods your 11th House of Long-Term Goals and activates your dreams. Although your spirit feels revitalized, the Full Moon’s opposition to unorthodox Uranus urges you to take a risky shortcut. However, hard work is the best way to get what you want. Meanwhile, the looming Sun-Uranus conjunction continues to tempt you to experiment. Instead, stick to the tried and true method over a radical new course of action.
The Virgo Full Moon illuminates your 10th House of Status today, giving you the impetus to dig in your heels and make a political statement. Although you may see yourself as a radical troublemaker, you might not be as disruptive as you think you are now. Thankfully, you won’t need to turn everything upside down in order to make the progress you seek.
The pragmatic Virgo Full Moon should help you to keep your mind on your work. However, she is rattling your 9th House of Adventure, encouraging your secret dreams about going on a spiritual journey. For now, it’s smarter to set aside impractical ideas of traveling around the world. Rather than flying off to a foreign land, try studying its culture or learning its language, instead. You may end up discovering there are many ways to feed your wanderlust.
Your heated interactions with others today could be motivated by fear, whether you know it or not. You’re afraid that a powerful person may be trying to control you, yet you don’t really understand the reason. Fortunately, your current concerns will probably fade quickly, but you’re still better off investigating further to quell any uncertainty. Be cautious in negotiations; a lack of finality now won’t necessarily slow you down in the long run.
Today’s Full Moon in your 7th House of Others is a reflection of the Great Paradox for you thin-skinned Fish. You must exist as part of a greater whole, since the school is more important than any one fish. However, you are also required to stand up for yourself by expressing your individuality. You may feel as if you’re walking a fine line between being overly flexible and stubbornly rigid. The key to your current happiness now is practicing moderation in everything you do.
