COURAGEOUS CHANGE: March’s Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Virgo | Vedic Astrology Insights

Updated: Mar 24



FULL MOON IN VIRGO, 25th March, 7:00 am GMT | VEDIC ASTROLOGY GUIDANCE FOR YOUR SOUL PATH


Are experiences from the past resurfacing, causing psychological and physical discomfort? Lunar eclipses, known for their karmic significance, can indeed stir upheaval within the nervous system.


KETU AND THE PENUMBRAL LUNAR ECLIPSE


Ketu, the cause of this penumbral eclipse, is the south node of the moon who supports us in transforming and eliminating our past-life karma, but not without sudden loss or disconnection, resulting in pain and isolation. These are the conditions which often drive us towards a spiritual rebirthing.


Have you been feeling haunted by powerful and triggering thoughts and memories lately?

As the shadows loom large, traditional Vedic wisdom advises against initiating new projects or engaging in outward-focused activities during eclipses. Instead, it’s a time to turn inward, focusing on spiritual practices that cleanse and elevate the body, mind, and spirit. Take this opportunity to lay low and strengthen your inner light.


THE FESTIVAL OF HOLI


This full moon (Vasant Purnima) and lunar eclipse brings the Hindu festival of Holi, a springtime celebration of the vibrancy of life, the awakening of colours within nature, and the spark of Shakti that exists within everything.


Holi revolves around the tale of Prahlād, the son of a demon king, who, through unwavering devotion (bhakti), triumphed over the greatest trials imposed upon him by his own family. It serves as a profound lesson in deep devotion and trust in the cosmic forces (conceptualised as Maha Vishnu, Lord of the planets.) Holi serves as a poignant reminder that each of us holds access to an indestructible power that transcends any darkness seeking to engulf us; that power is of bhakti yoga.




Mercury in Pisces, Revati Nakshatra and Moon in Virgo, Hasta Nakshatra.


Virgo’s planetary lord is Mercury, who is currently in mystical Pisces traversing a gandanta, a karmic knot — an uncertain time for the mental and emotional bodies, where communication and self-expression can feel challenging.


Lean into the transformations you are likely being forced to undergo because of Ketu; allow difficult circumstances to unravel. Place trust in your intuitive waters, reflected by Pisces, where the Sun is stationed with the north node, Rahu.


Mercury, going retrograde on April 1st, plays an important role during the full moon and eclipse as he is in Revati, the final nakshatra in the constellation of Pisces, signaling an ending of a cycle.


The Virgo-Pisces axis teaches the attainment of balance between mind and emotions, logic and feeling, along with the material and spiritual realms. This lunar eclipse in earthy Virgo is guiding us towards the magic of surrender.


At the time of the eclipse, the Moon is in its own nakshatra, Hasta, amplifying our psychological worries — yet — there is hope, and the promise of spiritual illumination on the horizon. Savitur, a form of the Sun God who appears at the breaking of dawn, is Hasta’s presiding deity, and an open hand — the hand of creativity, skill, and power — is its symbol. This lunar mansion offers the ability to bring our manifestations towards us, through our own courage, effort, and special gifts.


It is through your own creative intelligence that you can break free of past limitations.


Let go of the anxious gripping, and practice a sense of healthy detachment towards your current desires. Engaging in creative activities will support access to your intuition and the flow necessary to move through the intensity of the current energies.


FULL MOON INTENTIONS

Declutter and cleanse your physical space, emotional body, and mind. What is no longer relevant or needed? Tend to your overall health and emotional vulnerability with spiritual, creative, and self-care practices.


JOURNAL THIS

What past issue is rising to the surface and amplifying my fear, anxiety, and self-doubt?

If my fear and self-doubt were guides, what would they advise?

What must now change for greater alignment with my authentic self? (Reflect on behaviors of self-sabotage and self-betrayal.)

If I fully trusted my intuition, what certainty would I courageously be moving towards?


Rise Up, Warrior.
