Virgo and Pisces make magic at this Full Moon. Pisces opens the third eye and Virgo reconnects us to the natural world. To celebrate this moment, you could gather flowers, bells and a bowl of water, candles, crystals, and incense too. Yet sometimes the best rituals are simple ones. Just commit to grabbing five minutes before sundown. Find a spot that gives you a good view of the Eastern horizon. Allow your thoughts to ride the natural rise and fall of your breath. Soon your mind will grow quiet, like a sleeping child falling into another world. You might feel a spacious peace inside. Let your awareness expand into this peace. Feel how it floats through and beyond your body. Imagine that this expanding field of awareness had eyes. Let them watch for the Moon rising slowly above the horizon. And with the eyes of your body, watch how the earth responds to Luna’s soft wash of light. Notice how the Moon’s glow has the quality of something alive. See how it pervades everything, washing through mountains, limbs of trees, insects crawling along the ground. Observe too the sounds of civilization, how the shout of voices and rush of cars are part of the Full Moon’s symphony. If you sit this way for awhile, you may find that whatever is keeping you from fully enjoying your life is gradually melting away: a small gift from the vast magic of the Virgo/Pisces Full Moon.
