Full Moon in Virgo, February 27th, 2021
The Virgo full moon that takes place in Pisces season draws our attention to the relationship between our reality and our dreams.
Recently on a snowy walk, I took these two pictures thinking about when I would be writing this horoscope:
I had walked out to a trail on a creek near me that requires me to walk past some of the ugliest intersections in Toronto, IMHO. The trail is lovely, and snow-covered it was particularly magical, but the walk to get to it is pretty long and depressing. On the trail I was thinking about the beauty of Pisces season, that I was taking my time and getting a bit absorbed in the walk and the pretty snow and colours.
On the way back, I felt pretty bummed out to be going through such a bummer (and literally stinky) spot, but when I saw this billboard I had to laugh thinking about the fact that Pisces’ opposite sign is Virgo, and that the full moon in Virgo was coming up.
Pisces is all dreams, all romance, but also, illusion. Pisces is the glamour of a spell and the unattainable, whereas Virgo is the boring drudgery of our day-to-day – but Virgo also teaches us that the day-to-day is sacred. It’s what we have.
The ugly shopping complex subtly named for the slaughterhouse that used to be in the neighborhood and houses a lot of affordable grocery stores and a few hardware stores is extremely Virgo. It’s practical, it’s efficient (if you have a car), and it’s not particularly exciting. Passing this perfect mountain illusion made me laugh because of course the illusion is beautiful, but it’s just that.
I can get lost in the reflected waters of this poster or I can scan out and live where I actually am. Both are valid, and we need time in each. This full moon describes that dichotomy, and illuminates the sides of ourselves where we live intensely in our reality or in our dreams.
