Virgo Full Moon: Bend a Little


This Sunday the Moon is Full in Virgo, opposite the Sun at 26 degrees Pisces. If you have planets in the last degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius or Gemini, you will feel the effects more strongly than most.

All of us will be bathing in a wondrous illumination and expansion, as the inspirational energy field that emerged from the New Moon conjunct Neptune in Pisces of two weeks ago, sweeps to a crescendo this weekend.


Both Virgo and Pisces are linked to service and humility.

I am very tempted to make the following quote my whole post, as it is so appropriate to this Full Moon.

15. MODESTY creates success.
The superior person carries things through.

It is the law of heaven to make fullness empty and to make full what is modest; when the sun is at its zenith, it must, according to the law of heaven, turn toward its setting, and at its nadir it rises toward a new dawn.  In obedience to the same law, the moon when it is full begins to wane, and when empty of light it waxes again. 

This heavenly law works itself out in the fates of human beings as well.  It is the law of earth to alter the full and to contribute to the modest.  High mountains are worn down by the waters, and the valleys are filled up.  It is the law of fate to undermine what is full and to prosper the modest.  And people also hate fullness and love the modest.
                                                            
The destinies of human beings are subject to immutable laws that must fulfill themselves.  But a person has it in their power to shape their fate, according as your behavior exposes you to the influence of benevolent or of destructive forces.  When someone holds a high position and is nevertheless modest, s/he shines with the light of wisdom; if s/he is in a lowly position and is modest, s/he cannot be passed by.  Thus the superior person can carry out their work to the end without boasting of what s/he has achieved.

THE IMAGE

Within the earth, a mountain:
The image of MODESTY.
Thus the superior wo/man reduces that which is too much,
And augments that which is too little.
S/he weighs things and makes them equal.
