Full moons provide powerful lunar energy that assists us in cleansing areas of our lives that need it most. Under the full moon, take stock of your life and examine the areas where you can make adjustments, clear the air, and rid yourself of anything that may be holding you back. This could include bad habits or toxic patterns you've noticed happening time and time again in your life. When we intentionally work through these shadowy areas of our lives, we are able to rid ourselves of negative energy and can create space for newness, rebirth, and growth. And with each zodiac sign, the full-moon energy can be targeted to specific areas of our lives, depending on what the sign rules. For example, Virgo rules work, so if you're trying to have a more structured routine in your life, you can set the intention to shed any scatterbrained behavior under the full moon in that zodiac sign.
Full moons are also good for starting new projects or going full steam ahead with plans that have been bubbling to the surface of your life over the past six months when the new moon was in the same zodiac sign. Last month's full moon was in Leo and was all about boosting confidence. With the upcoming Virgo full moon, you can take into close consideration all the things you wished for and the intention you set under the Virgo new moon, which happened back on Sept. 6 of last year. This powerful energy is at our disposal. The universe is waiting to cocreate the life you want with you. So let's gear up for a beautiful evolution to begin under the full moon in Virgo, understanding that this human experience is not supposed to be perfect, yet you can still allow your naturally creative beauty to shine like the stars in the sky.

What Is the 2022 Full Moon in Virgo Meaning?
The Virgo full moon is also known as the worm moon, since earthworms typically begin popping up in the soil as it warms for spring. Just like the eager worm, Virgos are go-getters. Traits of the sixth zodiac sign include analyzing and evaluating things before jumping in, which works well with the full-moon energy. Our lunar friend provides us with the fuel we need to move forward on our big ideas when it's full. So put the pedal to the metal and see where the road takes you. If you're building a team, seriously consider bringing in a Virgo, because the zodiac sign ruled by Mercury is the planet of communication, coordination, creative expression, and information processing. Because of this, Virgos are very attentive to detail, implementing ideas with skilled precision, and discover overlooked errors. Tapping into the Virgo energy within or working closely with a Virgo could be just the fuel you need to get that engine roaring.
But be sure not to jump in too quickly and be overly confident if you don't intend to complete the tasks at hand to see your dreams through to fruition. All that rigorous work Virgos love can sometimes be left incomplete. Remember to enjoy the process. It's not about perfection, it's about creating and living in your truth; that way imperfections can be celebrated as uniqueness.
