This is a time of high emotion, and with the Sun in Pisces, you tend to be very aware of other people’s moods and feelings, and also be rather reactive to them too. Emotionally however, this Full Moon in Virgo brings you to a different place. There is an energy around taking a very practical approach to these emotions and their impact on you and your life.
A Ritual to Create Your Own Stability.
For this you will need a small piece of paper and a nice-sized rock; easy to pick up but heavy to hold. An out-of-the-way spot, ideally outside where the moon shines is good too.
Start by considering the person or influence that has the most emotionally disruptive and chaotic impact on your feelings. The one that shows up unexpectedly with demands on your attention. The one that surprises you with unpredictably caring or hurtful actions. The one that suddenly disrupts your plans or goals or dreams without even realizing they’re doing it. It’s like a little bomb going off every time they show up in your life.
It could be a family member, friend, or coworker, or perhaps something arising from the kind of situation you’re in like a job role or a living space, or perhaps even from within yourself.
Consider that troublesome influence for a quiet moment and think about the feelings it creates within you.
Now write your feelings down on a small slip of paper. Or draw them. Or scribble and scratch them. Represent your feelings when that chaotic influence is brought to you on that paper.
Now look at what you’ve put on the paper and see it for what it really is. It’s your reaction.
Now consider what the influence that makes you react that way really is. Maybe it’s someone else’s problems projected towards you. Maybe it’s heartbreak or loss that keeps knocking you off balance. Maybe it’s someone else’s wrong perspective or lack of understanding.
No matter what it is, spend the time until you can see it clearly, separate from your feelings. Look at it. Feel it. Label it and know it. It doesn’t get to surprise you or keep you off balance any more. It’s still there, but you’re taking control of how it affects you. You know it now.
The rock is your stability. It’s okay to be affected, to be angry, to be hurt, to be sad. You will feel these things but they’re not going to shock or surprise you anymore. You won’t be put off balance anymore.
Go outside when the moon is up. Put your paper, on the ground, ideally in an out-of-the-way spot where the moonlight shines. Then set your stability, your rock, down on top of the paper and leave it there. The rock never needs to move for knowing what you’re facing is a powerful step towards control.
And soon, in the near future, the paper will be gone.
