Full Moon in Virgo
March 7, 2023

Theme: Soul Cleansing
by Andrea Dupuis
When we hear Virgo, we often think of people who are super organized and clean freaks. It’s partly true Virgoian people tend to like things organized, but Virgo is so much deeper than that!
It’s a deeply spiritual and devotional sign that’s quite underrated. The ancient origin of the Virgo symbol is a virgin which represented the highest ideal of purification. It was believed a woman was most connected to god before she was introduced to sexuality.
While this old view of Virgo is an outdated patriarchal ideal, the still sign still represents purity, fertility and spiritual devotion.
Virgo is so much more than cleanliness and organization, it’s about cleansing and healing on a deep soul level.
Virgo is also connected to the archetype of the High Priestess – one who is deeply devoted to her spiritual path and connected to esoteric wisdom. Her commitment to spiritual purity is in service and devotion to the divine. She is the one doing offerings at the altar, cleansing herself and others, walking the path of celibacy.
This Full Moon we can use the powerful Virgo energy to cleanse and purify our own lives. We can do this in many ways – through ritual, through cleansing and detoxing our bodies, or through our minds – using trauma release techniques, breathwork and prayer. Whatever method we feel called to, there are many ways to purify our lives and bodies.
There’s no greater time to do this than a Virgo Full Moon.
We also have Saturn moving into Pisces the same day – that means there’s several planets now in Pisces – Neptune, Mercury, Sun, Saturn. Pisces is the opposite complimentary sign to Virgo. They balance each other out.
Where Pisces is all about the ethereal and dream-like states – Virgo is practical, earth bound and grounded. Where one is about bringing spirituality into earth, into the body, and daily life – the other is about bringing groundedness into our spiritual lives.
A good way to counterbalance all of the intensity of the planets in Pisces, is to move toward the practicality of Virgo.

Who this Full Moon impacts the most:
Cord Cutting Ritual
You can do cord cutting anytime you feel a connection with someone that’s draining you or causing friction. It doesn’t mean you want the person out of your life. Sometimes we need to cut cords with the closest people to us, so we can maintain our energetic sovereignty. This has nothing to do with whether the person is good or bad, it’s about reclaiming our mental, emotional and psychic space for ourselves.
You can follow these guidelines, but always trust your own intuition first and foremost.
- Put on your favourite music or mantra, spend several minutes breathing and getting into a nice calm peaceful space
- Close your eyes and call up the image of a person or situation you are ready to cut cords with in your minds eye
- Imagine them standing a good distance away from you
- Sense and see what cords are in between you, they may show up in several forms. They could be hard, loose, soft or made up of various materials such as metal, rope etc. Take note – and no need to judge.
- See what parts of your body and what parts of their body the cords are attached to – again no need to judge just witness
- When you feel ready take a large blade in your minds eye and imagine cutting the cords, setting you both free
- You may feel or see the cords disperse or recoil
- Take a few deep breaths and feel into any new or open space
- You can now let the person go with the utmost respect and love, send them blessings as they go on their way
