February 27, 2021 Full Moon in Virgo

At 3:17 a.m. Eastern on February 27, we have a Full Moon in Virgo, closely trine Uranus in Taurus. These Earth signs offer a chance to ground electric, emotional energy into something tangible. Pay attention to sudden insights and inspired solutions.

This Full Moon at 8°57′ Virgo forms the apex of a Yod — aka Finger of God — formation with Chiron in Aries and Saturn in Aquarius as the base of the isosceles triangle. (You can see the green lines pointing to the Moon, and the blue line connecting Saturn and Chiron, which is the glyph that looks like a black key, as the base.)

Yod’s create huge tension and a divine mandate. Formed of two quincunxes and a sextile, they demand integration of signs with nothing overt in common.

This setup suggests a powerful opportunity for healing, leadership, and mentoring. Chiron was not only a wounded healer; he raised Asclepius — the god of medicine — and taught him how to heal. Virgo is a sign of service, symbolized by the vestal virgin “keepers of the flame.” Chiron in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius focuses this devotion and healing around the rightful place of individuals within the larger community. This Full Moon highlights what we independently need for personal healing, in tension with changes to traditions and structures that support the greater good.

Asteroid Hybris conjuncts Saturn at 8° Aquarius, suggesting a need for moderation. Hybris — from which we get the word hubris — takes things too far. Beware of overconfidence or “reading your own press release.” We each have roles to play in the complex reality unfolding before and within us. Leadership and expertise in one area does not mean perfection in all areas! With knit picky Virgo as the Yod’s apex, our minds can joust with emotions, ego, resistance and innovation. Sometimes Virgo gets overwhelmed by too many details that don’t make sense.

The Sun at 8°57′ Pisces offers a release point. Pisces evokes the bigger picture and a dissolution of ego. As much as we wrestle with the big questions, sometimes we need to “let go and let God.” When in doubt, say a prayer and sleep on it!

I love the Sabian symbol for this Full Moon. (Always round up for Sabian Symbols.):

PHASE 159 (VIRGO 9°): AN EXPRESSIONIST PAINTER AT WORK.

KEYNOTE: The urge to express one’s individualized sense of value regardless of tradition. (See more here.)

According to The Collector, “Expressionism was characterized by broad brush strokes, bright color pops and abstract styles. It aimed to express rather than depict physical reality. … Expressionism as an art movement can be very broad and difficult to characterize. It spans across different countries, mediums, movements and periods. Expressionist art was therefore not defined by a set of aesthetic principles, but rather as a tool of expression and societal commentary.”

Sounds like the tense Yod and Uranus trine of this Virgo Full Moon! If you feel like Edvard Munch’s “The Scream,” …

“The Scream,” by Edvard Munch, 1893

… remember to lean into that Pisces Sun release point. Sometimes it takes a little”Fish Magic.”

“Fish Magic,” by Paul Klee, 1925

Just as Edvard Munch and Paul Klee were both Expressionist painters, with any astrology forecast, we can choose to engage these energies in different ways. Dane Rudhyar echoes this idea at the end of the Sabian Symbol for Virgo 9:

“But there is a great difference between being an origin of development pregnant with futurity, and deliberately sought for ORIGINALITY.”

Thou Art That — yet also This.

    I’m definitely screaming!! Thus full moon is conjunct my natal Virgo stellium: Virgo sun (8.08°)/conjunct Venus (8.45°)/conjunct Pluto (11.47°)/near conjunct Uranus (5.50°)…and I’ve got Jupiter in Aquarius soon to conjunct my natal Midheaven (18.14°)/conjunct Saturn (18.23°)!!

    I’m definitely feeling pressure to create, with that Yod AND Jupiter conjuncting my Midheaven/Saturn in Aquarius (Sabian symbol: “A Forest Fire Quenched”. I have promised to write an article for SOTT.net about Edward Jenner and the history of vaccinations, to show what a charlatan and jerk “Doctor” Jenner was (did you know he paid 15 pounds for his doctoral degree – from a college he never attended?!). So the energetics seem to favor it if I can just stop screaming!!
