Virgo Full Moon March 8 onwards,How’s your gut instincts? Mercury Retrograde and more Astrology by Tara Greene

Virgo the Virgin Goddess

Virgo a very large constellation. she rules the harvest,service to others, discipline, intelligence.

That beautiful Virgo Full Moon’s light is still streaming into my south-facing office window now. VIRGO a large constellation of the Virgin Goddess, which falls  on International Women’s day this year, rules work, service to others, health, discipline, perfectionism, worrying, workaholics, control freaks in general, servants traditionally, pets,the harvest, and the upper intestinal tract.

In short Mars Retrograding through Virgo has been of  late, wreaking havoc with my upper intestinal tract, So I have had some difficulties with this,and not keeping up with all this writing I intended to do. The upper intestine is associated with visions, being psychic.

How’s your guts feeling? A full moon in Virgo with Mars retrograde there conjunct the Moon will accentuate any unresolved emotional issues residing in your gut.

Mars Retrograde is conjunct the Moon at 18 degrees of Virgo and opposite the Sun in Pisces and Chiron nearby at 6 degrees of Pisces. Old anger issues, wounds and sensitivities will be stirred up leading up to and after this Full Moon. You’ll feel it palpably, I assure you. Spring is not so far away, 2 weeks from now  you can get ready to do a big spring cleanse soon. Worrying, a Virgo necessity is something to watch carefully now.

Saturn Retrograde at 28 degrees Libra is opposite VENUS at 3 degrees of  Taurus who is sitting nearby Big Uncle Jupiter at 8 degrees of  Taurus. Do be carefull about overindulging on rich foods especially with the Virgo upper gut stuff being overly sensitive. Venus and Jupiter love to eat a lot of rich sensual, foods in Taurus. Jupiter in Taurus promotes weight gain easily as well, so don’t be surprised if a few pounds sneak up on  you just like that. Pluto at 9 degrees of Capricorn is squaring Jupiter now, indicating large corporate reward taking now in the markets and conversely big companies scaling down from overly zealous expansions, trying to be more practical.


Mercury has just passed Uranus in Aries March 5 and is heading to square Pluto.  Mercury will join Uranus in Retrograde again March and April 22nd and it will stay within 10 degrees of squaring Pluto { the soul, the shadow} from March 3-23 and April 17- May 2. Exact on April 25. Mercury will also be in PISCES  from Feb 13 to March 2 and from March 23 to April 16 bringing intuition into our mental outlook for quite a long time. This is good.

URANUS PLUTO SQUARES the BIG aspects of 2012

Seven, count ’em exact passes between these 2 giants in terms of cultural influence not size, begins on June 24 2012 and ends March 16, 2015.

The last time these 2 transpersonal planets aspected each other they were conjunct in Virgo in the 60’s. Mars retrograde is going over their previous territories now almost as a rolling out of the red carpet trip down memory lane deja vu before the new landscape is born. Opposite Saturn in the 60’s these two planets, I know I still call Pluto a planet, they created the 60’s revolution.

Now they are beginning to hatch what was seeded 42 years ago, of course it is the midlife crises times for everyone born then. Uranus in early Aries and Pluto in Capricorn symbolize big new Aries angry, flash mob, occupy, new life, revolution. “We ARE the revolution.” Squares are frictitious, like rubbing two sticks together.

Pluto in Capricorn continues to tear down old monopolies, corporate structures, the Euro, the Greek, Portuguese, Spanish, Irish, etc economies.

By the same token Pluto in Capricorn also indicates, power and control issues from Plutocrats, Plutocracies who wish to gain total control of the world economies, and religions, dictators Assad, North Korea, Iran etc. and the like who resist the change and hang onto old  outworn ideologies, religious fanaticism, patriotism, government interventions, old school mentality. Pluto rules over death and decay, garbage, sewage, recycling. Dictators are being toppled, the people continue to rise up against such tyranny and even though they are being mercilessly slaughtered, young boys in Syria, the people of Iran, they will not be entirely stopped yet. Hussein,Gaddafi and all those former dictators who are now gone, fallen, are the beginning, we are just getting rolling revolutionary wise. When the Uranus Pluto squares hit exactly then the fires will really start to burn.

PLuto Square Uranus will also see all refuse and garbage being seen as a valuable resource and reused garbage as fuel in all areas will elliminate the need for burning fossil fuels, oil, natural gas, etc. Nicolas Tesla, who was strangled and buried by Edison, General electric,the US government for his radical, revolutionary, free electricity, should stage a healthy comeback.

 Aries is the I am principle, Uranus is US.   It’s the I is US thinking times.

Mars will continue to Retrograde in Virgo till April 13.

Review your health, diet, work routine. Mercury, the ruling planet of Virgo will be Retrograde in Aries back into Pisces  from March 12- April 4th. During that 3 week period especially, review any new directions taken. Go back into using your intuition rather than rashly jumping into new things  without thinking about whether they are right for you. Dream on things.. Review your work goals, your scheduling. Are you overly busy? A workaholic? You may take a revolutionary{ Aries}  new look at why you are working so hard and for what?

All Retrograde times are Good medicine. The Rx symbol is the same as a prescription. Relax mentally and physically with Mars and Mercury moving retrograde. Saturn is also Retrograde during this time period indicating a letting go of should, out to’s, heavy responsibilities.

 Enjoy life says Venus and Jupiter in Taurus right now. Smell the roses, indulge in massages, yoga. Slow down and notice what you are eating, drinking, savour each mouthful. Go to art galleries, the theatre, live music. Dance, plan your garden for later this year.

2012 is speeding by. At the spring equinox in two weeks. We will be at the conception period, nine months before Dec 21 2012. It is not the end of the world but a new consciousness being birthed. think about what your purpose is on earth now. What did you come here to do? remember, it is all inside of your every cell.

Confused? Solar flares got you off-balance? What’s your evolutionary new direction in relationships, work, health, finances for 2012?

I can help guide you spiritually and practically..
