A no-nonsense full moon in Virgo lights up the sky on March 7 at 7:40 a.m. EST. Astrologically speaking, full moons can illuminate hidden matters in our lives, bringing new information to light in a way that triggers an ending. In particular, any plans you put in motion or intentions you set around the last new moon in Virgo, on August 27, 2022, could come to fruition. At the same time, the grounded Virgo energy of this full moon could push us to gather the facts around a murky issue, sharpen our perspective, and develop a practical plan moving forward.

Indeed, embracing your inner Virgo and staying grounded will be important for weathering this full moon’s otherwise chaotic vibes. When it arrives, the sun in Pisces will be inching toward Neptune in Pisces, dialing up Neptune’s illusive energy as the planet of fantasy and dreams. This planetary combination can obscure the truth, blurring the line between reality and fiction.

We could find ourselves more anxious, overthinking more than usual, or wielding words as weapons of criticism.

All the while, the sun and the moon will also be forming a tense angle with active Mars in Gemini. This could spark a lot of mental energy: Both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. As a result, we could find ourselves more anxious, overthinking more than usual, or wielding words as weapons of criticism. Remember that words are also available to you to defend yourself and your ideas as necessary.

Within an hour of the full moon in Virgo, Saturn—the planet of limitations, hardship, and commitment—will enter Pisces for the first time since 1996. In turn, themes that dominated your life in the mid-90’s could begin to re-remerge now. But also, every time Saturn shifts into a new sign (about every 3 years), a new sector of our birth chart undergoes karmic lessons and experiences growing pains. The topics and themes that arise today could offer clues for how you’ll grow during Saturn’s journey through Pisces, which will continue until February 2026.

Exactly what those themes are may be shaped by how the full moon in Virgo interacts with your birth chart. Read on for your sun, moon, and rising signs to learn how this full moon could affect your life, then pick up a unique self-care practice that will help you process its intensity.

What the full moon in Virgo means for your zodiac sign


As the veritable energizer bunny of the zodiac, you tend to thrive with a packed schedule. But as of late, you may be pushing it too far, even for you. The full moon moves through your sixth house of daily routines, health, and habits, pushing you to assert your boundaries around your time and how you use it. Carve out time for your rest, and do your best not to overbook yourself.

Your full moon self-care practice: Rework your morning and evening routines. Prune out items that no longer serve you and work in at least one new soothing habit.


You may feel ready to invest in your playful side, Taurus. The full moon in Virgo lands in your fifth house of pleasure, creativity, romance, and leisure, making you more apt to take risks and dive into joyful activities. But, there’s a catch: A financial element could stir up hesitation, thanks to Mars in Gemini highlighting your second house of resources. Can you find a balance between enjoying the present and managing your budget for the future?

Your full moon self-care practice: Prioritize a hobby from your youth. Shoot some baskets, ride a bike, climb a tree, or swing on a swing. This will help you cultivate more joy and gratitude for your present-day life.


You’re entering your private and personal era, Gemini. As the full moon illuminates your fourth house of home and family, you may feel called to explore pieces of yourself or feelings that you’ve kept hidden for some time. Tensions among your career, home life, important relationships, and personal ambitions may feel like they’re colliding in an overwhelming way. Asserting your needs and speaking your truth will help you deal.

Your full moon self-care practice: It’s time to declutter. Go through any closets and junk drawers, and weed out things that no longer serve a purpose. The physical space you’re creating will result in more emotional space for you to occupy, too.


News or information could make its way to you, Cancer, as the moon moves through your third house of communication and self-expression. You may also decide that you want to pursue a new subject of interest, learn a new skill, or share your own news with family relatives. With regard to the last point, this moon paves a way for you to address whatever desires or thoughts you may have been hiding in your subconscious. Relief comes with communication today.

Your full moon self-care practice: Take pen to paper, and make a list of interpersonal issues that have felt frustrating over the past six months. Cross out the ones you feel are resolved. For the remaining, choose to engage in constructive conversations with the people involved.


How do you define your value system, Leo? This full moon in Virgo illuminates your second house of resources, income, and personal values. You may find that what you believe is at odds with the beliefs of others in your community and that you need to stand up for yourself and set boundaries. This is also a financial lunation for you; new opportunities may arrive or projects may wrap up, triggering a change in your monetary situation.

Your full moon self-care practice: Make a list of your values: What do you believe in? What do you stand for? What do you wish to speak up against? Considering your answers to these questions will grant you a strong foundation for managing confrontations in the future.


Take a deep breath. It’s time to let it all go, Virgo. The endings and culminations wrought by a full moon in your sign are of the personal sort: This moon asks you to release old pieces of yourself that no longer define or serve you. It’s an opportunity for a cosmic shedding that only happens once a year. How can you move toward a more aligned version of yourself?

Your full moon self-care practice: Dress up as a future version of you. Embody that version of yourself now as a way to bring your current self closer to the person whom you wish to become.


Rest is a cornerstone of health, Libra. The full moon lands in your 12th house of solitude, the subconscious, spirituality, and healing, prompting you to slow down and spend time with your own energy. Now is not the time to spread yourself too thin with external obligations. A new beginning is around the corner, but you deserve time to process the past first.

Your full moon self-care practice: Book a massage, commit to daily meditation, or consult with a diviner. Your health is asking for attention, so if you’re able, invest in caring for your physical, mental, or spiritual health in some way.


Major shifts in your social circle could be on the way, Scorpio. The full moon chugs through your 11th house of friendships, allies, and community. Perhaps you experience a dramatic confrontation within your network of friends, or you’re reaching the end of a big collaborative project. You may also be reflecting deeper on the unspoken expectations others have of you. Are there power dynamics at work beneath the surface in some of your connections?

Your full moon self-care practice: Reflect on the give and take in your friendships. Are they balanced? If there is more give than take, you may want to address the imbalance. Your time and energy are precious resources, and you deserve to receive what you give out so freely.


Major life changes could unfold for you under this moon, Sagittarius. It illuminates your 10th house of career, ambition, and public reputation, which could push you to start or end a role. If you’ve struggled with work-life balance over the past few months, the tension may reach a boiling point, perhaps triggering a confrontation with a manager or coworker. Airing your grievances will ultimately lead to more understanding or help you realize which connections you may be ready to leave behind.

Your full moon self-care practice: Reflect on where you’ve been and where you’re headed. Who were you five years ago and who do you want to be five years from now? Hold compassion and gratitude for your journey thus far, and visualize the necessary stepping stones on the route toward whom you wish to be.


A dramatic perspective shift could be on the horizon, Capricorn. The full moon lands in your ninth house of knowledge, spirituality, travel, and risks. You may be putting the final touches on a big project or travel itinerary, or sharing your wisdom with a wide audience. At the same time, some unsettling news may arrive, and you could be tasked with sorting through fact and fiction. The full picture may not be available to your right now, but clarity will arrive in time.

Your full moon self-care practice: Try something new. Engaging your mind in a new way will feel expansive and calming under these stressful moonbeams.


You may not typically engage much with your emotions, but on this full moon, you could feel prompted to do so, Aquarius. It activates your eighth house of vulnerability, fears, grief, and the inner psyche. In turn, it asks you to consciously practice intimacy with another. People are eager to support you for who you are, but first, you have to take a leap of faith and surrender. This is a powerful time to release old stories about yourself that you no longer wish to define you.

Your full moon self-care practice: Write a list of your secrets. What pieces of yourself do you carry guilt or shame about? Close your eyes, and imagine sending love to these parts of yourself or experiences from your past.


Your close relationships could be on the receiving end of this full moon's energy, which highlights your seventh house of one-on-one partnerships. You could experience significant changes or tension with a partner, family member, or in regard to your current living situation. Now is the time to address any frustrations that have been building. A verbal acknowledgement of how you’ve been feeling could bring relief.

Your full moon self-care practice: Say, “no.” If you find that you’ve been too accommodating in some of your close relationships, give yourself permission to set and defend firm boundaries.
