March will be our second month this year that will consist of a double full moon. Right from its outset, on 1 March, the moon will present its abundance to us as it falls at 11º Virgo. According to Marina of Darkstar Astrology, this full moon will bring up “up themes of the victim/saviour archetype since it falls on the fixed star Zosma found on the flank of the lion’s [Leo] back. Unusual for restrained Virgo energy this star brings a lion’s bite to the full moon. The mystique continues with the fact the full moon is also opposite Neptune, which makes those martyr tendencies more likely to emerge at this full moon. There is also a sadomasochistic element here too which might come out in news headlines around this time. Look out for bondage-style fashion and love/hate imagery in the media.”
Marina continues to advise us that during this full moon we have the choice to be the empathic nurse or the torturer, much depends on the evolution of the soul or how conscious we are. Those who let themselves become literally unconscious through the use of drugs or alcohol lay themselves open to being possessed by demons who enjoy inflicting pain on others.

This full moon is perfect for the artisan and craftsperson who is very skilled and produces very fine and detailed works. Their precision and perfectionist traits are enhanced by this Virgo full moon to the highest potential. This can be utilized working with styles that require intricate and delicate operation of tools, like lacemaking, etching or fine jewellery making.
At this full moon, we can weave our heart and soul into each of our creations. Another tendency for those touched by this full moon will be the inability to take criticism from its superiors. Especially affected are the very people who dish out a very cutting critique of others. At this sensitive full moon however they will feel extremely wounded if they receive the same back.
Full moons tend to make us purge and release things from our lives, so we need to make sure that we are in control of this and no one is forcing our hand! Sometimes we can let go of things that we regret later, due to heightened emotions and the full moon’s perchance for saying ‘F*** You!’
The bright light of the sun throws a spotlight on our subconscious and our shadow. This can feel uncomfortable as the sun literally blasts out the demons who have nowhere to hide. Often the full moon is a time when we reap what we sowed at the new moon … for good or for ill.
