Virgo is summer transitioning to autumn, bridging one season to the next and therefore tied to preparation, organization, and gathering. When the Sun enters Virgo, we prepare our gardens for harvest as well as new seeds to sow.
Virgo is the way to awareness and the initiation to the upper 6 houses of the Zodiac. They are here to teach us the way to divinity. Inner strengths can be found in Virgo's sextile and complete mastery of the natal sextiles is the golden key to the spiritual evolution.
Regardless of your sign, balance is taught when we completely experience the fullness of moon and the resonance of our astrological polarity. Virgo-Pisces polarity is balancing tools and techniques with vision, intuition, and infinite possibility.
Knowing your natal chart and the current world chart is paramount in creating a full moon ritual. The Altar pic above is bits & pieces of several kits plus a few things that I have never sent out. This is something that I need for me at the moment, not necessarily a general Pisces/Virgo ritual. I used a Pisces Zodiac Candle with Sandalwood resin and Virgo Zodiac Oil, Tara Healing incense in my hag stone, red clover seeds as an offering to the goddess of the hearth hawks eye, smoky quartz, amethyst and selenite, Sacred Earth Oracle cards and the Chiron tea. A little later I plan to burn the Chiron Herbals (Solomon’s seal with allspice) while doing a meditation to see where that leads.
For the beloved Virgo,
The full Moon in Pisces is a time to grasp how to serve oneself, others and the collective consciousness. Your challenge is to intuitively connect (Pisces) with form (Saturn), energy (Uranus), and cosmic light (Neptune). Otherwise, Chiron, the planet of wounds to heal will continually ask you how until the quest is complete. It is your cosmic duty to teach us the way!

Virgo Lore & Correspondences
Virgo, also known as Astraea, the goddess of innocence, daughter of the Titans Astraeus, god of dusk, and Eos, goddess of dawn. Her name meant "star-maiden" and she was on the earth alongside humans during the Golden Age of Man. When the Iron Age dawned, bringing along misery and wickedness, Astraea abandoned the earth and went to the skies where she transformed into the constellation Virgo. She was closely linked to the goddess Dike, protector of fair judgment; this relationship was also identified on the sky, where Libra, the symbolic representation of Dike, lies nearby Virgo. According to the myth, when Astraea returns to Earth one day, she will once again bring the utopia that was during the Golden Age, bringing an end to human suffering.
The constellation is one of only three which represent women. The others are Andromeda and Cassiopeia. In combination, these can be seen as the three aspects of the feminine: maiden, mother, and crone.
Virgos are dependable, logical, genuine, industrious, gracious, scholarly, versatile, thoughtful and well organized.
