How to Heal With the Full Moon in Virgo

Posted on February 24, 2021

A person sits on a hill in front of a large Full Moon.

Here we are again, approaching another unique Full Moon, here to bring us healing energy and maybe even some heightened emotions. But this time around, that Full Moon is occurring in the Earthy sign of Virgo, bringing more balance to this otherwise emotional transit – along with other interesting strengths and challenges.

The Full Moon is always a time of reflection, release, and the end of a cycle.

However, because each Full Moon occurs in a different sign every month, they all bring a little something different to the table. With this transit – one that is typically full of emotions – in the sign of earthy Virgo, there are some incredibly healing opportunities.

And the good news is that it doesn’t matter what your Sun sign is or if there’s any Virgo energy in your chart because you’ll still feel this energy!

If you’re curious about what to expect from this transit and how to make the most of this Full Moon, keep reading to find out everything you need to know about the Full Moon in Virgo.

About the Full Moon in Virgo

There are two energies to consider with every Full Moon – the sign that the Full Moon is in and the energy of your own sign. These energies come together to create a unique experience, just for you.

Full Moons are essentially an ending – the completion of another lunar cycle.

This also means that there’s a sense of newness, of a clean slate, of starting over. And while the New Moon is typically a time better suited for manifestation work, the Full Moon is an excellent time to start thinking about what it is you want to work on attracting into your life.

The Full Moon is also always connected to the New Moon that came before it and began the cycle, and in this instance, we’re talking about the New Moon that happened in Aquarius on February 11th. The wishes you made during that New Moon may very well begin manifesting themselves into your life right now. The events, experiences, and emotions of this particular lunar cycle are coming to an end, signaling a new set of experiences.

This is also a time of release, as the Moon is at its fullest, ready to spill over. It’s time to make room for new things by letting go of anything that’s no longer serving you – grudges, bad habits, toxic relationships – particularly if any of those things cropped up within this current lunar cycle.

When you make the conscious effort to let these things go, you’re able to release them from your cup without creating a mess everywhere.

When this transit occurs in the sign of Vigo, you can expect a focus on hard work and responsibility – especially regarding how you feel about these things.

This would be a great time to sit down and evaluate your emotions toward work and obligations. Virgo is a Mutable sign ruled by the element of Earth, representing a practical approach to life coupled with an innate flexibility and the ability to go with the flow.

Now that we know a bit more about this Full Moon in Virgo let’s take a look at a few things you can do to make sure you’re taking advantage of this opportunistic transit, as well as when this energy will enter your life!

Full Moon in Virgo 2021 Dates

This year, the Full Moon in Virgo is taking place on February 27th, 2021.

It’s important to remember that the Full Moon’s energies can be felt for about 48 hours before to 48 hours after the transit actually takes place, which gives you nearly 5 days to soak in this healing energy!

How to Heal Under the Virgo Full Moon

While the Full Moon isn’t the best time to practice manifestation work – imagine how difficult it is to pour more liquid into an overflowing cup – any and all healing work that you partake in right now will help create the best circumstances for you to manifest your dreams in the future.

Reduce Anxiety

We’ve collectively faced a pandemic for over a year now, and there’s a good chance that you’ve dealt with many other stressful situations in the recent past. Let’s face it, most of us are walking balls of nerves right about now, and that anxiety can cause us to miss out on the good things right in front of our eyes.

You can do so many things to lessen anxiety, like yoga, meditation, exercise, listening to music, and even playing with coloring books and markers. The only thing that matters is that you derive pleasure and relaxation out of it.

It’s time to throw anxiety out the window and invite peace, harmony, and calm into your spirit.

Embrace Forgiveness

One popular quote attributed to Buddha states, “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”

Yes, people have let you down, perhaps even in seemingly unforgivable ways. But forgiveness is not about them, and it’s not about taking away their responsibility or absolving them of any wrongdoing – it’s about you. It’s about your healing.

When you let go of these grudges, when you truly forgive people for what they’ve done to hurt you, you’re freeing yourself from emotional poison and opening up space in your heart for more love and new experiences.

Acknowledge Your Emotions

Because Virgo is an Earth sign, it’s not the most emotional of the astrological bunch. Being ruled by Mercury – the planet of communication and information – this energy may have you reaching for your cell phone rather than a box of tissues when emotions pop up.

That is, Virgo would rather think things through or even forget them altogether than feel them out.

But it’s crucial that you do take time to acknowledge your emotions and validate them within yourself.

Anything you’re feeling right now, you’re feeling for a reason. And the only way to heal and move on from emotions that might be holding you back is by giving them the agency to express themselves.

So, if you find the tears bubbling up, let those bad boys fall! Don’t hold your feelings in during this Full Moon.

Dig That Virgo Energy

While Moon transits typically represent your emotional state of being, Virgo is about doing, about getting things done. This is one of the best times of the year to take a moment to consider your feelings about responsibility and hard work – especially as spring is just around the corner.

Do you dread your chores? Does cleaning the house feel nearly impossible lately? It’s time to shift your focus and think about these things in a new light. Yes, it can feel exhausting to clean after a long day of work but think about how satisfied you feel when you’re finally finished and surrounded by cleansed, refreshed energy.

Try to take advantage of this transit by shifting your perspective regarding duties and care tasks.

Learn new ways to make these responsibilities feel more fun, whether you tidy while blasting music or reward yourself in some way with each task accomplished!

How Will the Full Moon in Virgo Affect You?

Now let’s dive into celestial specifics to determine how this Full Moon in Virgo will affect and influence each Sun sign. While Earth signs – Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn – may feel this energy more intensely, we will all benefit in some way from this healing transit.

Aries: Don’t Obsess Over Details

Virgo is a sign that pays close attention to details, and it’s getting under your skin and calling upon you to do the same, Aries.

But it’s important to remember that the big picture may hold more weight, which is why we tend to think of things in the “grand scheme of things.” Intense scrutinization can drive one mad. Do what you need to do to expand your point of view during this Full Moon.

Taurus: Let Your Inner Child Come Out & Play

All this Earth energy is calling you to spend time in nature, Taurus, letting your inner child refresh its connection with the outside world.

The energy of Mother Nature is powerfully healing, especially for someone so connected to the Earth. When you’re feeling stressed out or emotional, simply take a break, step outside, and breathe in the crisp, refreshing air. Or, try planning a Full Moon ritual that you can practice outdoors, like a drum circle for one.

Your spirit – and your inner child – will thank you.

Gemini: Make Difficult Decisions

Let’s face it, Gemini, you aren’t exactly known for your decision-making skills.

In fact, trying to decide between two options can feel distressing, even overwhelming, for you a lot of the time.

But Virgo is decisive and firm, and you both share intellectual Mercury as a ruling planet, making it much easier for you to choose right now. If you’ve been mulling over a decision for a while, this may be the perfect time to listen to your heart and make a move.

Cancer: Be Open About Emotions

While you’re deeply connected to your emotions, you may struggle with sharing them with those around you, Cancer.

Being vulnerable can certainly feel scary, but it’s the only way to create true intimacy in relationships. Take this opportunity to practice opening up about your emotions and trusting that you’ll be supported.

Not only will you feel a sense of relief, but the Universe will reward your bold efforts.

Leo: Find Your Momentum

This Full Moon represents hard work and our feelings about it – how have you been feeling in your career lately, Leo?

If you’ve felt stuck or even a bit lost, this is an excellent time to regain your momentum and infuse your work with passion. Start thinking about what it is that would bring you joy each day, and then start doing what you can to turn that into reality.

As long as you include creativity and desire, you’ll find your way.

Virgo: Embrace Self-Care

Yours is a sign of service, Virgo, but that sometimes comes at the price of neglecting your own needs.

This Full Moon is in your sign, one focused on health and self-care, and it’s crucial that you apply these themes to your life right now. Make time for a soak in the tub, for childlike creativity, for listening to music, and reading a good book.

Gathering your strength will give you the energy you need for future projects and endeavors.

Libra: Listen to Your Instincts

The Full Moon enhances our intuition, and this one may have you reconsidering your position or career, Libra.

If you need guidance or direction, look no further than within your own spirit because it’s probably been trying to give you the answers all along. Balance your chakras, meditate, and work with crystals like labradorite and moonstone to amplify your instincts even further – and when they speak to you, listen.

Scorpio: Seek Spirituality

The Full Moon is a spiritual time for many, but especially for you, Scorpio. This is an excellent time to open your spirit to the celestial energies surrounding us and let them pour in. Working with Tarot cards, astrology, or studying new metaphysical practices will help you further tap into this energy.

You’re drawn towards the hidden mysteries of life’s waters, and it’s time to dive in and take a swim.

Sagittarius: Aim Your Arrows

As the centaur of the zodiac, you’re always thinking about how to accomplish future goals, Sagittarius. But when was the last time you sat down to reconsider and reevaluate those goals?

Sometimes we cling to goals because we’ve already invested so much into them, but you’re a changing, transforming the individual. If you want to shift your reality, now’s the time to do it!

Take some time now to decide where you’d like to point that arrow.

Capricorn: Live in the Moment

You’re concerned with taking care of your loved ones and achieving success Capricorn, but are you taking time to simply enjoy the present moment? When was the last time you stopped to smell the metaphorical roses?

It can be hard for someone so determined and motivated to kick back and relax, but it’s also necessary for your peace of mind. Amethyst is the perfect stone to work with during this time, as it promotes mindfulness and gratitude.

Aquarius: Encourage Transformation

This Full Moon energy wants you to acknowledge everything you’ve been through recently and how those events have changed you for the better, Aquarius. You’re constantly growing and evolving, so it may be difficult to keep track of those changes – but it’s time to recognize how far you’ve come and give yourself a pat on the back.

Appreciating and celebrating your hard work will only bring bigger and better changes in the future.

Pisces: Go With the Flow

Yours is an adaptable sign, Pisces – much like Virgo. That makes this transit the perfect time to practice going with the flow even more than you already do.

Yes, you’re adaptable – but you don’t always love change. Try to find the beauty in it now, try practicing gratitude each time a plan changes and morphs into something even better and more beautiful.

When you go with the flow and accept what’s coming, it’s easier to see the magic in each moment.

Bask in the Virgo Full Moon Glow
