During the Full Moon in Virgo, Your Sign Might Benefit From Some Extra Boundaries—Here’s Exactly What To Expect
The full moon in Virgo on March 18 perfects at 3:18 a.m., EST, while the sun is in Pisces—and this lunation is likely to demand our utmost attention. That’s largely because of the drastic-feeling differences between Virgo (practical and analytical) and Pisces (imaginative and dream-driven). Both zodiac signs can be intuitive and compassionate, though, and that brings them together. They feel best when helping others, which can also connect to them benefiting from setting stronger boundaries—a theme that all signs will feel strongly during this full moon in Virgo.
During the full moon in Virgo, the sun and moon are both forming a supportive connection in their angle toward Pluto—the planet of death, destruction, and rebirth—which invites us to integrate some of Pluto’s alchemy into our full-moon story. Consider it an invitation to reclaim your power and make little shifts your life that need not require drastic change to be meaningful.
