Give the world service with a smile. This week’s full moon lights up the sign of Virgo, the grounded helper/healer of the zodiac. Like a sacred earth goddess, this full moon brings us back to our nature-loving origins and reminds us of the power of being generous for generosity’s sake. Giving selflessly is more restorative than a week at the spa. It connects us to the power of pure, true, universal love. Whether we’re helping a friend in need or volunteering at a nonprofit, this full moon will beam its light where our gifts are needed.
You might've heard rumors that Virgo energy is boring. Guess again. Ruled by speedy, communicative Mercury, our intellectual curiosity is stimulated under this lunar spell. There’s no better week to research, gather data and visual inspiration, or get to work on a DIY upcycling project.
This year, Jupiter is also in Virgo — and retrograde — so this full moon may reignite some of our grander goals or inspire us to take a bold risk on a project we back-burnered when Jupiter began its reverse commute on January 7.
