February’s Super Full Moon-Pulling at the Tides

Super Full Moon in Virgo

 

This morning the moon waxes Full in the astrological sign of Virgo, and holds the auspicious designation of being a “Supermoon”. Virgo is of the earth energy and as a Mutable Modality, that structure and strength of manifest strivings out-picture as analytical scrutiny and filter of whatever comes into the purview of Virgo’s application. In this case, the watery depths of emotion’s gate-Mother Moon in her glorious fullness-receives the potent restraints and filters of earth’s shorelines.

Additionally, this moon is a “Supermoon”. A supermoon occurs when the moon is closest to the Earth and in this case when Full it appears (to the naked eye) slightly larger and its effects on the tides is felt more significantly particularly, 2-4 days after the Full Moon occurrence.

On my way into work this morning (still dark) I came out of my house to greet a beautiful, bright and huge moon that remained along my route to work. It was a surreal moment of almost feeling as though I was able to drive straight into the Moon herself. This image alone, pulled at my emotions and a welling up of response from the beauty, sheer mass and radiance of this celestial body reminded me of my place in the cosmos and the privilege of seeing such a sight.

Althought eh emphasis is on the brightness and light of the Full Moon there is the antithesis to this that lay more occultly cloaked as the Black Sun that polarizes this Full Bright Moon. The Black Sun has many things assigned to its use, qualities and meanings, but in this case I am calling on its energy to stand as the counter weight – Sun and Moon in constant dance with one another – as feminine and masculine, form and force – play out their dynamics.

Add to this a polarity of Light to what lay in the darkness (the Moon has no natural light of its own) and Darkness of what blazing in the light of Sun’s grace. And, the time is ripe for Virgo to weave the magick of sorting through what can be drawn together, refined and ultimately remade and readied for manifest expression. This Moon’s potential lay in refining and enhancing what and how we feel.

Pulling at the Tides

I propose that we dive deeper into the waters that lay hidden beneath this full moon of light. The resultant pulling on the tides of the waters we hold within and our floodgates of heart and intuitive gnosis have the opportunity for a clearing away and filtering of what will provide the composting of wisdom that lay within the Light of the Sun and its dark reflection on a Moon of potential.
