VIR – PI FULL MOON and its ‘Entourage’ – Sacred Alignment Practice, in Oneness with What-IS.

9 Mar

The exact Full Moon in VIRGO will be on March 5 at 10:05 am PST. Check out the Full Moon chart:

VIR - PI FM 2015

Not ‘just’ a Lunar – Solar polarity, but

The VIRGO MOON will shortly before the FM pass LILITH (in VIR since end of Nov 2014, until end of Aug 2015).

The PISCES SUN, after having ‘hooked up’ with NEPTUNE (last Wed Feb 25) is approaching CHIRON (exact union on March 7).

Virgo Moon / Lilith, and Pisces Neptune / Sun / Chiron create pulls on both sides of the Earth, and those of us with Sun / Moon / AC / Planets in VI, PI, or both will experience the (apparent) dilemma of…

Virgo <-> Pisces:

Doing, Working, Helping <-> Being / Relaxing, Receiving, Asking

Perfection <-> Ease

Practicality <-> Creativity

Problems <-> Let-go, Forgiveness

Precision <-> Randomness

Discernment <-> Allowing

Skills, Crafts <-> Art, Music, Dance, Inspiration

Hands (ruled by VI) <-> Feet (ruled by PI)

Remedies, Recipes <-> Medicine


…and asks us to strike a balance that creates synergy between the ‘2 sides of the coin’.


So we actually have a Moon / Lilith – Neptune / Sun / Chiron Full Moon.


What does that mean, and how can we be in natural alignment with it?


On the MOON side:

Moon / Lilith in VIRGO:

4 R

Johfra Boschart: VIRGO

Virgo is the energy of the harvest goddess and priestess who is clear and aligned with her sacred Self which she keeps in integrity.

Virgo practices self awareness (the energy of the Leo-to-Virgo Sphinx Point), and tends to ‘her’ body-mind-spirit temple through clearing, discernment, sacred practice, such as ceremony and ritual.

Which in our practical daily life means: a body / health / wellness / nutrition practice and lifestyle. A healthy body in a healthy spirit.


When I started 10 years ago my membership at a gym that’s owned by a friend with Virgo Rising, he said: “It’ll become a lifestyle.” He knew it.

And as I’m writing this, I’m having some bread with honey from the buzzy bees (thank you, Heather, delish!) – so Virgo…

Speaking of bees, if you care pls come to the Sierra Club event on March 17 in Victoria (it’s a tour, and goes to other Canadian cities too) “Protect the Pollinators”.


Just that core piece of the ‘regular’ / yearly Full Moon in VIR – PI (every year, between end of Feb and Spring Equinox) tells us:

The time is ripe, and the alignment is ON, for a Spring cleanse and household cleaning (why not combining it with residual Feng Shui tips from the Chinese New Year New Moon?), to clear the energy for the NEW to come.


What’s LILITH’s energy, fused with the Full Moon?

Some Q & A’s re: Lilith, nowadays in VIR, and activated via the Full Moon:

Some see Lilith as the ‘Black Moon’, others as an Asteroid Archetype of the ‘wild, instintual Feminine’ in men and women. I’m going beyond that connotation (which can be another ‘box’) nowadays, and see the Lilith energy as our deep unconditioned, free and wild Self.

Q: What does that mean for Lilith in Virgo (since end of Nov 2014, until end of Aug 2015 – Lilith is 9 months in a sign, and has a 9-year cycle)?

A: Our unconditioned Self needs to be free so that we can align ourselves with our true nature.

Lilith in VIR is very ‘allergic’ to being boxed in, in a reg. ‘job’ or otherwise ‘cubicle’ or narrow ‘box’ that is not her ‘temple’, in other words: anything (work, relationship, lifestyle, choices…) that’s not aligned with her highest purpose, and from which she can’t serve in integrity.


Q: What to DO? What would fulfill the needs (Moon) of Lilith-now-in-Virgo?

A: That’s an important qu for many of us. THIS is the only Full Moon of the year that highlights Lilith (and is SO close to her).

From the VIR perspective: Check in with sacred alignment. It all starts with qu like:

Who am I?

Am I in / out of integrity?

Does my work and lifestyle serve the highest good of all, incl. myself?

Or, am I abusing myself / allowing others to abuse me?


Is there a practice I can adopt right now that would benefit my well-being (something simple and self sufficient that’s not a big deal, like walks, Yoga, exercise, getting more regularly fresh air)?

Which ‘recipes and remedies’ would my inner wise one (not conditioned through external expectations) prescribe? Like: adding / removing something from my diet, sleep, work style and hours, certain practices that make me overall happier and healthier?

Is there something to do (VIR) and / or to let go of (PI)?


In a deeper sense, Lilith in Virgo is not about the particulars so much but about the alignment with ones’s true nature.

Which may sound like: Hey, nothing ‘wrong’ with you, you’re not flawed, inadequate, can’t really make ‘mistakes’. Discover your true nature that’s about your PRESENCE rather than all the ideas and possible problems that the personality can show up with.


So maybe it’s ‘all good’ if we can be ‘in the world’ (VIR) but ‘not of the world’ (PI)?

And / or maybe something is ripe and ready now to be harvested, as in: let go of.

Which brings us to the other side of the FULL MOON ‘equation’:


On the SUN side:

Neptune / Sun / Chiron in PISCES:

The bigger, longer lasting, and more transpersonal influence of Neptune (2012 – 2026) and Chiron (2010 – 2018) in Pisces is now (yearly) highlighted by the SUN, and brings Solar consciousness to these themes:


ONEness and interconnectedness of ALL – which can, for our separate identity, be overwhelming, confusing, make us vulnerable – or make us want to escape, be ‘addicted’ to ‘the state of bliss and union’, etc.

I guess you get the picture, and examples are everywhere, incl. the constant influx of media (also ruled by Pisces).

The SUN now in PI brought (happens yearly) end of Feb consciousness to Neptune – whoa, this really IS immense!


Did you feel overwhelmed by all kinds of influences and energies that are ‘streaming around’, maybe have a very vivid dream life, maybe didn’t want to face it all, and did you recognize that the way ‘out’ is the way ‘IN’ – to surrender and trust in being carried by What-IS?

So much is coming together now… Allow it,and  allow yourself to BE. Maybe that means letting go of, forgiving, releasing something or some ‘disappointment’, ‘illusion’, etc. from the area of life related to PI in your chart.


Chiron will be met by the SUN (a yearly event) on March 7, and the Full Moon on March 5 carries and catalyses that theme:


The ‘Medicine Wo/Man Chiron’ shows that the ‘wound’ carries the medicine, and certain processes in life (esp. round age 50, at our Chiron return) bring up old / original wounds as an initiation for intrinsic healing and as a deep teaching to us and others around us.

Nowa-years with Chiron in PI, when we dive in, and experience our oneness with life, and with ‘the other’, ‘the system’ relaxes, we can let go of the idea of separation and even adversarial ‘you over there’, and we are re-connected with life. Where is the enemy, the victim, the perpetrator, the saviour? The ‘healing’ and ‘teaching’ can simply lay in letting go.

This oneness with what-IS allows us also to let things ‘go through us’ as energy, rather than having them stick to us, or sit in our field. Just as we have taken it IN (PI is ‘famous’ for taking a lot IN) we are invited to breathe or otherwise release it OUT. Maybe no need to ‘do anything with it’ (i.e. analyze, problematisize, work on it…).

Music, dance, Yoga, Qi Gong, being with or IN water is natural therapy for this kind of release.


‘Wounding’ nowadays for many of us equals overwhelm of influences (Chiron in Pisces), and unreleased energies. 


Many people become more and more sensitive. I hear that from many clients, and experience it myself. As an ‘energetic hygiene’ and clearing of what we have taken IN (Pisces energy can take a lot IN), I recommend a very effective Visualization Practice that I adopted from my friend and Satsang teacher Susan Broznitsky.

Visualizations are also perfect for Saturn in SAG (more about that focal point below) and you can do it any time, without even anybody noticing. 🙂


Another way of releasing is Forgiveness Writing Practice. Recently, I came across a process that is intense but very liberating (Saturn at the end of Scorpio, moving into Sag before the end of the year loves it too!). There is a lot of writing involved, something for the Gemini Moon. Excellent to start it after the Full Moon, in the waning phase – green light from tomorrow on already.


Here are 2 useful Tools & Resources for Release of Stuck Energy, and for Forgiveness.

Try them on, and feel free to pass them on.


1) Releasing Stuck Energy – Visualization Practice

We all carry energy around that we picked up somewhere, and that’s sitting in us. When we can’t release it it can become toxic.

It can be quite frustrating to feel or sense those things that are not directly ours (yet on some level they are ours too…).

We might have picked things up from other people or from the collective field, through resonance and empathy, and / or by being in a low and receptive vibration (like feeling angry, and docking on to the anger around us).

As empaths, and when we have a lot of Pisces in us we take a lot IN, and need to make sure we release it too.

Close your eyes, and sit (or stand) upright.

Visualize your energy body that’s you and surrounds you as a beautiful temple, or cathedral, or garden, or any sacred space that speaks to you. Create or remember that sacred space vividly, in front of your inner eye.

Now locate where in your body, esp. in which Chakra area you have taken something in that’s still ‘sitting there’ and might feel like a blockage.

Realize and acknowledge that you must have opened up doors of your sacred space to let ‘it’ in, probably in front of your body when you were facing ‘it’.

Now you are invited to go to the back of your body in that same area, and open the doors or windows there (maybe they have never been opened? Or you weren’t aware that you can do this even?)!

Now allow the stuck energy to leave your space, blessed and transformed – since it is a sacred space. With ease and accompanied by the light. Hold space for this process. You may experience a light ray coming in from the back where you open the door / window, helping the energy to leave on this light ray.

Your experience is unique, and might have a message for you too!

How do you feel now?

You can do this practice when you notice having taken something in that kicks you off balance, and also in hindsight, even after years of ‘cultivating’ something in you.

I’m not saying, do it all the time, to avoid any discomfort… but as a tool to work with, so that the energy can flow.

This is a great tool (well, I like it, and the clients whom I have shown it to) that is easy, can can be done anywhere, without even anyone noticing. 🙂




2) Forgiveness – Writing Practice

I came across this one a few weeks ago, online. See how it resonates. Release and forgiveness is great after the Full Moon.

Like myself, you might start and then get wrapped up in other things the next days. Forgive yourself and continue.

See what not doing it brings up.

See what the process shows you!

You might or might not feel the forgiveness right away when you write it. See how that moves.

Yes, when we release and forgive (Pisces), the space that the non-forgiveness filled up can be opened up for other, more healthy and loving manifestations.



by Gary Douglas

“As you begin this process, acknowledge your personal connection to Divine Presence.

Your first step is to write down everything you want to manifest in your reality on all levels, physical, mental, spiritual, emotional.


Fill several pages – list all your goals, desires, dreams and wants.


Give thanks for receiving them. Release them into the universe as done!


Write one affirmation 77 times each day along with your response; you can do half in the AM and half in the PM or all at the same time.

You are releasing a tremendous energy as you process these issues.

Be kind to yourself and know healing is taking place.

Since you are releasing layer upon layer of energy and nature abhors a vacuum, your goals, desires, dreams and wants will manifest in this new clear space.


Write each affirmation 77 times and your response…even if the response is the same each time, keep writing it, don’t judge…just take what comes up.

1st day…I forgive others for hurting me…………………Response! (Melanie: Example: I forgive my friend… for… – be concrete!)

2nd day…I forgive myself for hurting others…………….Response!

3rd day…I forgive others for letting me hurt them………Response!

4th day…I forgive myself for letting others hurt me…….Response!

5th day…I forgive myself for hurting myself……….……Response!

6th day and 7th day: Pick the affirmation or issue that seems to have the most charge or repeat the day # 5 exercise for these remaining two days.

Repeat the process of writing the affirmation and your response 77 times.

If a certain person comes up often…use their name in the affirmation.

Be sure you write each affirmation and response 77 times per day for 7 days.


Love and acknowledge yourself for having the courage to do this FORGIVENESS PROCESS.”


In a wider, unifying, Piscean way, it all IS ONE already. Nothing needs to be done or perfected.


However, since we are embodied here in our physical temple (says Virgo), we are asked to bring universal energy into everyday experience.

Through sacred practice and concrete support with our tools, by connecting in the Quantum field of infinite possibilities and pure potentiality, by sending love and blessings, and….

with the focus on Saturn in Sag: by checking in on the intentions we hold and what we focus on, and SEE – taking our ‘blinders’ down can open the path to new opportunities.


In summary:

The VI – PI Full Moon & Entourage call us to be in Sacred Alignment, AND in Oneness with What-IS.
