Oh me, oh my, there’s another full moon in the sky! On Feb. 27, the moon will again swell to its fullest size as it spirals through constellation Virgo, the sign of practicality, productivity and nit-picky analysis. Taking place at 1:18 a.m. MT, the 2021 Virgo Full Moon will directly oppose the Pisces sun at 8 degrees, causing a temporary yet intense dilemma between reality and fantasy.
Since the sun shifted into Pisces, there’s been a collective shift into supersensory la-la-land, as Pisces energy functions best through the expansive realm of the imagination. Not so with Virgo. The mutable earth sign is nothing if not grounded, realistic and a little perfectionist.
When the moon, the astrological planet of emotions, is full in Virgo, we are narrow-minded and skeptical about anything ethereal, eschewing feelings and fantasy in favor of cold, hard reality. Moon in Virgo also makes us a tad obsessed with labeling our feelings and fixing emotional “flaws.” Naturally, this causes an excess of anxiety, perfectionism and inner fault-finding.
While it’s safe to also expect some waterworks on the 2021 Virgo Full Moon (full moons are known for altering moods), it’s also wise to expect — well, anything, since Uranus, the outer planet of all things unexpected, is aligning with both the moon and the sun.
Making a sextile –– or soft — aspect to the Sun, Uranus could bring about some rapid changes and out-of-the-blue opportunities for our long-term goals. But be careful: Uranus also trines the moon, which makes us emotionally restless and fosters high expectations for exciting life changes. Does this mean your life won’t change in exciting ways? No, but it does mean you should take the time to summon some Virgoan logic and practicality to stay grounded.
This is all fascinating information, but what does it mean for you? Read your 2021 Virgo Full Moon Horoscope below to find out!
Your Virgo Full Moon Horoscope
Alright, take a good, long look at your routine. Get rid of the habits holding you back; your productivity will thank you. Uranus is shaking up your self-worth and value system, which hasn’t been fun. But no one said growing up would be easy. Silver lining: you’re building inner strength.
To date or not to date? The full moon will answer that question. If it doesn’t, or if you’re not into romance, you’ll see the completion of a creative project. Either way, your ego gets a boost! A welcomed relief, since Uranus is hammering away at your sense of self.
Go easy on yourself, Gem. Anxieties about home and family have you nervous AF. And with Uranus unearthing past romantic issues you’re still trying to ignore, it’s obvious: You’re in a rough spot. The good news? Things smooth out once you stop overthinking and let your intuition be your guide.
Communicate! Skilled as you are at reading nonverbal cues, you can’t expect others to be. So, talk it out. The relief you feel when you articulate your woes will surprise you. So, too, will sudden invites from acquaintances-turned-friends. Your social life is readying for major changes, courtesy of Uranus.
Life is changing in uncomfortable ways, and it feels like your fate has been on the fritz for months. (It has.) The tonic: release your exceedingly high expectations and your tendency towards self-aggrandizement. Get real about your values and your worth. Doing so steers your destiny in the right direction.
Vow to scrutinize yourself with compassion (for once). The full moon instigates an analysis of your identity and idiosyncrasies: are you as self-aware as you think you are? Meanwhile, Uranus is reshaping your philosophies and world view. Growth is guaranteed, but it’s not without its pangs. Self-love is a must.
Lucidity is a struggle, as reality and fantasy come head-to-head. Don’t bring unnecessary grief unto yourself by overthinking or judging. Just be. Uranus is (still) pushing you to examine your darker sides, and it feels like lightning is striking your psyche, exhuming all the pesky little feelings you’ve long-stashed away.
So, group projects are finally coming to close (if they haven’t ended already), but you’re still in close contact with a number of individuals who disrupt your equilibrium. Uranus wants you to reconfigure how you relate to others. Try cooperating. Better yet: let go of the need to control everything.
Self-discipline is not your strong suit, but it is a necessary evil in the adult world. Critical examination of this lack in self-restraint leads to revelations about your career and life goals. Uranus brings a change to your daily routine, which aids you along this quest toward self-mastery and adulthood.
Cliche as it sounds, the full moon sees you intensely pondering your aspirations. Are you good enough? Yes, you are, but you’re skeptical (you’re skeptical of everything, really). Uranus is shocking your passionate and artistic sides with more questions about self-worth. Let loose and do something creative, competitive or outdoorsy.
Anxious? There are intense emotions you’re trying to outsmart, and mental restlessness is the result. Blame the full moon! Actually, blame the (metaphorical or literal) renovations going on at home. Newsflash: Your emotional life and home life are intimately linked; to bring calmness to one, you must placate the other.
Ponder what you want in life right now. Is it a soulmate, a reliable partner? (Knowing starry-eyed you, it’s a soulmate.) With practical intention, you can attract anything. Meanwhile, Uranus rebuilds your friend-list. It’s a bumpy ride gathering new acquaintances, but if anyone can go with the flow, it’s you.
