The March full moon is almost here, and this year Autumn Equinox falls three days later… we can look forward to a fresh start as we put to rest recent disastrous weather events and emotions, get our lives sorted and prepare for the cooler months. 

With the full moon being in the healer of the zodiac, Virgo, Friday’s (March 18th) lunar event should also bring up and eventually help settle any big emotions or miscommunications.

Because full moons mark the peak of a cycle, you’ll gradually put tough emotions and conversations to rest.

The full moon is also associated with tides adding to the terrible flooding southeastern Australia has been experiencing.

In the spiritual realm, water is unfortunately a reminder that we need to honour and work through our emotions.

Sadly, major events like the floods can bring up emotions that are already locked down in our physical bodies. Sometimes, we just can’t deal with them at the time, so they get pushed down until they’re triggered by another event such as the floods.

These emotions have been stirred up and activated within. The environment and the earth have been pushed to their limits, and so have we.

Now is the time to tap into Virgo traits of being practical and down-to-earth and just “get things done” before winding down for the winter.

Virgo is earthed in reality but is flexible – so it’s a good time to pivot on things that are making you feel stuck.

People need to let go of stubbornness and move forward with personal, home and business plans.

Virgo is also all about details, cleanliness, the environment and being organized. 

So, if we couple this full moon with the Autumn equinox which falls on March 21st – it’s a good time to get yourself and your home ready for the cooler months with winter approaching.

The Autumn equinox signifies the end of summer and a preparation for winter, it is a time when night and day will be in perfect balance with the same duration of day and night.

It’s not something people usually think about, but it’s important during this period to stock up on household supplies that you need, do a big clean in the house, tidy up your garden and plant winter veggies, then simply start to wind down for the winter.

Working with the seasons, rather than against them yields the best life results.

After the tumultuous few months that we’ve all had managing the COVID fallout and now extreme weather events, we need to look to stabilize ourselves, particularly our emotions, and focus on the future.

Virgo’s symbol is the ‘virgin’ – the original meaning being ‘a single woman who is one unto herself’, and this is a potent feminine symbol during the full moon.

During this time women can look at their independence and being at one with themselves, it’s not the meaning of being a shy ‘lady in waiting’.

We need to look at the divine feminine aspect of ourselves – not the cultural idea of women being soft and weak. This time is about understanding our true strength is in being vulnerable.

Virgo is also a mutable earth sign and while everyone will be affected by its influence over the full moon, other mutable signs Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces should take extra heed. 

Your star sign mode is important because astrology is based on the seasons. Cardinal signs mark the beginning of seasons, followed by Fixed signs in the middle of the season and Mutable signs at the end of the season – which we are approaching now.

It’s a time to be more meditative. Equinox is a good reminder to live your life with the seasons, it’s a guide for what we should be doing.

We can accomplish a great deal spiritually this month as we have no retrograding planets and no eclipses. This is a big opportunity for spiritual growth that can occur after a tragedy sadly.

When can you see this month’s full moon in Virgo? It will be reaching its peak on Friday, March 18that 6.17pm AEST, but will be seen in the night sky either side of this time. The Autumn Equinox will occur on Monday, March 21st at 2.32am. 

Here are Rose Smith’s full moon horoscopes.

ARIES: March 21 – April 19 Your Star Sign Predictions For February 2018

Aries (March 21st to April 19th): The moon is calling you to look after your own health and wellbeing this month. While it’s fine to take care of others, you need to be fair and balanced about this, taking care of yourself with equal determination. Your moon is opposite a ton of planets which could bring up a lot of subconscious energy which is difficult to understand. Take a deep breath and don’t try to accomplish too much. A rest is in order. Soon it will be time for you to emerge out into the world once more. Go within, meditate and try to understand what your subconscious is trying to tell you now.

Monthly Astrology for Taurus in May 2017

Taurus (April 20th to May 20th): You’re not backwards in coming forwards now! Do be careful you don’t get some friends or acquaintances off-side as there are a lot of oppositions in your groups and connections zone. Your hopes and dreams could be also tested… now’s the time to find the real in reality! The silver lining is that it’s time to play and have some fun. Take a few risks and get out ‘n’ about! People will enjoy your fun-loving side and you may find you are living a bit closer to the world of your inner child. Mysterious and unknown situations may draw you in with intrigue!

Astrology: Your Monthly Horoscopes

Gemini (May 21st to June 20th): Intense situations could pop up regarding your career and your parents but particularly with your mother. It’s ok because your normally cheerful disposition can smooth out any bumps and things are likely to go in your favour. You may find a lot of energy comes up around where you grew up, your family and old traditions. This is great because you can see the patterns of your past and how they no longer suit your lifestyle as an adult. Nurture yourself and your family now. You may also find that your family/spouse mothers you in some way, which is fine if kept in balance.

CANCER: June 21 – July 22 Your Star Sign Predictions For January 2018

Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd): It’s a big emotional time for you! You can achieve a great deal through genuine contact with others. Your feelings are likely to be close to the surface in your communications and you can gain rapport with others, so they are more likely to trust you. Likewise, they will feel more comfortable sharing their feelings. Just be careful not to go emotionally overboard, but you can make real headway in relationship matters. Reach out to others now and they can feel your genuine concern.

LEO: July 23 – Aug 22 Your Star Sign Predictions For February 2018

Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd): There’s a focus on your money and possessions now which is likely to make you feel more secure. Old antiques and things with sentimental value could be especially significant. You may want to keep things ‘in the family’ and not let go of the past. Also be careful not to overspend or waste money on inconsequential items as there’s a hard aspect to Neptune increasing the chance of gullibility and/or deception. However, it’s a great time for your imagination and potential musical ability. Focus within now and keep track of your inner world, as you may have some big realisations soon.

Astrology: Your Monthly Horoscopes

Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd): You come across as quite sympathetic and it’s easier to establish rapport with others now. Be aware that your emotions could show more than usual and to some you may seem a tad illogical. The full moon is in your sign giving you an added dose of intensity especially with Pluto compelling you towards showing your emotions. There may be dramatic crises that you can help others with. The mysterious and the unknown may seem particularly attractive. You would make a great investigator or healer of emotions now.

LIBRA: Sept 23 – Oct 22 Your Star Sign Predictions For January 2018

Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd): It’s a spiritual time for you, so best make time for inner reflection and peace. Look at your dreams and the little intuitions you experience throughout the day. It may seem hard to understand what your subconscious is trying to tell you and sometimes life is like walking through a fog. That’s ok – it will all come clear to you soon. You may not want to interact too much with others now and this is right and proper for you. Maybe you feel sorry for those who represent the ‘underdog’ – perhaps you want to help them in some way. Trust and keep going – you are on the right path!

Astrology: Your Monthly Horoscopes

Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st): Your connections, friends and groups are more important now. They can provide you with both emotional and physical support. Your friends might seem more like family, even moreso than your actual family! A strong spiritual connection brings your friends and connections even closer! Your hopes and dreams also come to the fore, and you may be more proactive about communicating these desires. This is a positive step for you to physically manifest your heart’s desires and friends can help you with this.


Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st): Your career or social status becomes your focus. It’s important that you get personal fulfilment from what you do, so you might think about what you can do to change things up in order to make yourself happier. It’s also a time of caring for others in a professional manner, so you might think of somehow incorporating this into your work life. There are positive vibes about working well with the general public now but do be aware that the public will see more of your personal life. Be careful of over-sharing on social media!

Astrology: Your Monthly Horoscopes

Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th): It’s time to broaden your life through spirituality, philosophy, study or travel. There’s a big wide world out there calling you now and the exotic or foreign probably feel more exciting. New experiences, brighter colours, more immersive experiences will brighten your life so try something different. Go to a new restaurant specialising in exotic food, plan a trip to another country or perhaps do a course in something that’s always drawn you, but you’ve never got around to doing. You’re likely to be feeling more spontaneous and unpredictable than usual… this is great! 

Astrology: Your Monthly Horoscopes

Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th):  The full moon is concerned with the resources you share with others now. It could be that your intimate life is suffering, and you may want to be intimate with another very much. But they are unavailable, or you shut yourself off because you don’t want to be hurt again. It’s time to look at ‘trust issues’ and to allow yourself to take a risk and be a little more vulnerable. You might be surprised at what happens – maybe a closeness with someone special is deepened if you can do this. There may also be issues around joint finances, perhaps loans, inheritances or superannuation.

PISCES: Feb 19 – Mar 20 Your Star Sign Predictions For January 2018

Pisces (February 19th to March 20th): You may be feeling emotionally generous towards others now. You could also look to them for similar emotional support. Women may be more important than usual, and your own mother comes to the fore in some way. Your sense of security, safety and happiness can be somehow tied up with women, so do watch for dependency, especially if you don’t have a partner. The universe is calling you to be a little independent but still maintain a closeness with significant others. It’s a time of feeding and nurturing your important relationships while being true to yourself!
