On February 24, 2024 the Full Moon in Virgo will happen at 5:30 AM MST. The Moon in Virgo at 5 degrees directly opposes the Sun in Pisces, which is surrounded by Mercury and Saturn. A Full Moon in Virgo brings a culmination of energies associated with the Virgo zodiac sign. Full Moons generally represent a time of culmination, completion, and heightened emotions. With the energy of Virgo added in we are completing things associated with practicality, health and wellbeing, being of service to others, and hopefully letting go of our need for perfectionism.

It is best to use the full moon to set intentions for completing projects, releasing what does not serve you, or completing specific goals. Here are 10 key points to consider about a Full Moon in Virgo that can help you as you set your intentions:
Attention to Detail:
Virgo is known for its attention to detail and precision. During a Full Moon in Virgo, there's an emphasis on paying attention to the finer points of life. This may involve refining skills, organizing, and focusing on the specifics of a situation.
Practicality and Efficiency:
Virgo is a practical and efficient sign. The Full Moon in Virgo encourages practical approaches to problem-solving and the implementation of efficient systems. It's a time to streamline processes and seek practical solutions to challenges.
Service and Helping Others:
Virgo is associated with service and a desire to help others. The Full Moon may highlight a sense of duty and a willingness to contribute to the well-being of others. Acts of service and volunteering may be particularly fulfilling during this time.
Health and Well-being:
Virgo governs health and well-being. The Full Moon may draw attention to health matters, encouraging individuals to focus on self-care, healthy habits, and overall wellness. It's a good time to assess and make adjustments to health routines.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, emphasizing analytical thinking and intellectual pursuits. The Full Moon in Virgo enhances cognitive abilities, making it a favorable time for problem-solving, critical thinking, and detailed analysis.
While Virgo's attention to detail is an asset, there's a potential for perfectionism. The Full Moon brings awareness to finding a balance between striving for excellence and accepting that perfection may not always be achievable.
Organization and Planning:
Virgo is a sign that appreciates order and organization. The Full Moon encourages organizing one's environment, creating plans, and setting realistic goals. It's an opportune time for planning and setting intentions for the upcoming weeks.
Virgo's practical nature extends to emotional well-being. The Full Moon may prompt a desire to declutter emotionally, releasing unnecessary worries and anxieties. Emotional detoxification and adopting a practical perspective on emotions can be beneficial.
Virgo's Earth element brings grounding energy to the Full Moon. This can be a stabilizing influence, helping individuals feel more grounded, focused, and connected to the present moment.
The Full Moon in Virgo emphasizes the mind-body connection. Activities that promote both mental and physical well-being, such as yoga or mindfulness practices, can be particularly beneficial during this time.
During the Full Moon the Sun and Moon of course oppose one another. This creates tensions between the Sun and Moon, a need for balance between our emotional self, and our ego self. The two signs that holds these luminaries add another layer into what needs balanced. Virgo is controlled and grounded, Pisces is watery and free flowing . Somewhere in the middle lies the perfect balance that helps you bring to fullness your goals during this full moon energy. The perfect mixture of control and freedom come together to create fullness.
Moon Aspects: This Moon in Virgo stands almost completely alone. It is considered the launching point for a whole lot of activity going on opposite of the Moon. All the red lines on the chart above show just how much tension there is during this full moon. The need for balance, and meeting in the middle is almost screaming out. The good news about the Moon in Virgo is you can learn how to control your emotions and respond in a way that doesn't add to the tension, but instead will dissolve it. You can also learn natural ways to manage stress and healing, like using crystals, mediation and hypnosis.
Stellium Planets: Of interest at this time is 2 sets of stelliums, one in Aquarius and one in Pisces. A stellium is when 3 or more planets come together in one sign, and are closely aligned. A stellium creates a concentration of energies within a specific sign or house, amplifying the traits and themes associated with that area of the zodiac. The Pisces stellium directly opposes the Moon. This includes the Sun, Mercury, full moon ruler, and Saturn. Pisces is a water sign ruled by Neptune, and it is associated with intuition, sensitivity, compassion, creativity, and the dreamy realms of imagination. The influence of Neptune, Pisces' ruling planet, enhances intuition and may grant a degree of psychic sensitivity. You may have vivid dreams, intuitive insights, and a heightened level of sensitivity at the time of the Full Moon. This is like a normal full moon on steroids as far as emotions go. Virgo has a lot of control, but this may be too much for her to handle.
The stellium in Aquarius involves Pluto, Mars and Venus. What all of these planets share in common; lust. There is something about this topic that is getting highlighted by the square to Jupiter in Taurus. Some truth may be exposed involving the topic of sex and lust. Another way this may manifest since Aquarius also brings people together is some sort of uprising, power to the people. These planets also align under the energy of great passion, causing people to come together who share a passion of some kind for the greater good
Jupiter. This planet is heavily involved in this Full Moon. It squares the stellium of planets in Aquarius, and is sextile to the planets in Pisces, while also trine the Moon in Virgo. Jupiter is the great benefic, a wise teacher, a giver of blessings. There is a need for growth and expansion at this time that simply cannot be ignored. There are major lessons to be learned as well. Jupiter rules areas like higher learning, foreign people and places, it is a seeker of truth. As the largest planet in the solar system it yearns to help you grow and expand in beneficial ways. The square aspect requires change, while the sextile and trine is the support you need to manage the change.
Chiron. In the midst of all of this Chiron still stands next to the North Node in Aries as it opposes the South. These fated points are showing us the way to heal. Showing us the way to learn from the mistakes of our past relationships in order to become stronger. While this energy does not aspect the Full Moon it is still a part of the bigger lesson going on now. Pisces, Virgo and Chiron all have to do with healing. Something big will need to be healed in all of us at this time.
