In astrology there are two signs that govern physical, mental and emotional health: Virgo and Pisces. The annual Virgo full moon is the best time in 2021 to heal yourself, so get ready for some extreme self-care!
On Saturday, February 27th a glistening full moon occurs in Virgo, the sign of good habits. It’s not a coincidence that ancient astrologers placed diet, fitness and overall glowing health in the sign of Virgo. After all, feeling fabulous is often a result of discipline and intelligent routines.
We now know that genetics plays a big role in how you feel. But if your genes are functioning well, then there’s no excuse for not feeling like a million bucks.
So if one of your 2021 resolutions was to get in better shape and cure some ailments….and you fell off that wagon by January 5th….cosmic help is on the way.
Here’s a brief primer on how Virgo and Pisces affect health. Virgo deals with “lesser” health problems, such as basic aches and pains, colds, headaches, menstrual cramps and so on.
It also governs the day-to-day practices that help you maintain good immunity and a clear mind: getting enough sleep, drinking plenty of water, eating nutritious foods, working out and maintaining cleanliness.
Pisces, on the other hand, handles the nastier stuff: surgery, life threatening or serious diseases, physical therapy, and modalities like dialysis.
Pisces also governs your subconscious mind, from your dreams to memories to emotions. However, this is also the house of “undoing”, which can take a lot of forms. For example, getting as drunk as a skunk and getting behind the wheel of a car. Being involved in illegal activities. Cheating on your spouse (and leaving a messy, easy-to-find trail of texts). Not paying your income taxes.
On the health side, “undoing” means taking way too many drugs or drinking too much alcohol. Letting an eating disorder take over your life. Refusing to get annual mammograms. Chowing down on Oreos when you have diabetes. Not listening to your doctors. As you can imagine, there are mental issues driving these behaviors. Hell, you know something is wrong and yet you do it anyway.
So right now the Sun, Neptune and Venus are all in Pisces. This means that it’s time to get your sh** together when it comes to the more serious stuff. A lot of people are using Covid lockdown as an excuse for not going to the doctor, but this is not a good plan.
I was not happy about getting my annual mammogram last summer, but the prospect of getting cancer overrode my reluctance to be in a medical building. Wasn’t happy either about the four trips I took to the dentist and endodontist to get a freakin’ root canal and a crown. Nothing like having your mouth hanging open for two solid hours with a pandemic in play, I’ve gotta tell you. But it was that or mortal agony.
So don’t avoid a trip to the doctor if you need to go! And if you’re suffering from a drug, alcohol or emotional problem, Pisces season is absolutely the best time to get help. Many therapists are doing phone or Zoom calls these days.
The great thing about having a Virgo full moon in the middle of Pisces season is that full moons shine their brilliant light on issues. And considering that Virgo is the sign of forming good habits and sticking to them, you’re in good cosmic hands.
If you’re basically healthy on a mental and physical level, the energy of the full moon can be used to tweak your diet and fitness routine. Virgo is all about the outdoors, so get involved in a sport that’s been calling your name. Individual sports are a better choice than team activities right now due to Covid, but hey—get your blood pumping and feel terrific.
With gentle Venus in Pisces, you should be focusing on treating your body and mind like the temple they are. Venus is the planet of comfort and ease. Beauty and peace.
You would never go into a church, temple or mosque and trash it. They are places of reverence. Shouldn’t you be treating your mind and body the same way?
