The Moon! The Moon! Look to the Moon! This weeks Wisdom Teaching is on the Full Moon Cycle in Virgo happening today, February 28, 2002.

Full Moon Cycles are “power times.” The ancients knew to look to the Moon for great wisdom. They are highly charged emotional times. They produce a higher state of tension, release and excitement in humans, animals and plants. Therefore, on a Full Moon ones judgment may be colored by these feelings–knowledge we can use to our advantage if we know the sign of the Full Moon. What is a full moon in Virgo like?

The Full Moon is in the Astrological sign of Virgo today. Virgos archetypically represents the Perfectionist, the Analyst or the Servant. Virgos have an inner longing for expressing the self through work and service. They also strive for the highest positive experiences of health and perfection within the body (or with whatever task they have decided to undertake.) In this cycle, I recommend that you examine the relationship you have to your work or service, and also explore the consciousness you have to your health and your physical body.


Because Virgos place tremendous value on service the shadow is of course the workaholic. Virgos need to balance his/her life with play or intimate relationship. Virgos also have the boundless ability to see the minute details of life and are never satisfied unless the task is absolutely perfect. The shadow of that is the annoying perfectionist who never actually completes anything.

Are you in the job or service that you love? Are you taking time to exercise your body? What do you need to do to make that happen? Are you engaging in a service that feeds your soul while helping others? How much is your daily work an honest representation of your true abilities? Do you have a regular exercise program that balances out the mental activities that you engage in on a daily basis?

As you explore these questions be easy on yourself. True evaluation of change at this time requires a commitment to a process.Process can actually help you to create a reasonable time frame to which you can make the necessary changes. 

“Quote For The Week”


I slept and dreamt

that life was joy

I awoke and saw

that life was service

I acted and behold

service was joy.
