The Virgo Full Moon (February 27th, 8:17 GMT) is ruled by Mercury, who has just turned direct. Yay! The intense period of inner change and communication with those dark parts we usually prefer to keep hidden (which we have – hopefully – been working on since the new moon earlier this month) can now transform into some tentative steps forward.
When taking tentative steps it is helpful to have someone kind to help us. Ideally someone who is stronger in the way which we want to be, or who knows the path, or who loves us unconditionally. Do you have someone like that? It doesn’t need to be one person, or a person.

Divination/ Journalling Prompts
Ritual/ Spellwork/ EveryDayMagic Suggestions
*Examine how you feel about asking for and accepting help (often in our culture it is not seen as a good thing, and that’s something which needs working through) *Take a leap – do something which challenges you, ideally with someone supporting you *Reach out to someone. Ask them for something or offer to do something for them. Remember that it’s not an exchange economy though, this is for practice and getting those asking and receiving muscles strong. *Maybe read Amanda Palmer’s The Art of Asking
The energy is building into a Virgo Supermoon (March 9th, 17:48 GMT), and it may feel like there is a lot at stake right now. Emotions are running high and any worries/issues that have been successfully swept under the carpet (perhaps for years) come tumbling out. And that is good. It is time to cleanse, to deal with, to (finally) heal. What is the point of all this hard-won Mercury Retrograde in Pisces inner knowing if we are not able to act upon that knowledge?
There is a clear choice illuminated by this larger than usual moon. Heal, or don’t. Thrive, or fester.

Divination/ Journaling Prompts
*What has run its course?
*Where do I need healing?
*What can support me to let go?
*Where do I (metaphorically) cut?
Ritual/ EveryDayMagic/ Spellwork Suggestions
*if you have a ritual knife it might come in handy just now for drawing/ renewing your boundaries, make a clean line between what is in and what is out.
*etheric cord cutting perhaps, if that is in your practice
If the cutting metaphor I have used in this post is triggering I am truly sorry. I wondered about softening and changing it, but self-harm is one of the past (or current) hurts/ harms that may be brought into focus at this time, so I felt it was more truthful, and maybe more helpful, not to look away. Ultimately this is a time for recognition of past harms, and for healing.
