February's Full Moon highlights the Virgo/Pisces polarity, the conflicting desires between concrete application and self-transcendence. Both ends can find harmony. We can discover transcendence through meaningful work or service, or the application of useful or helpful skills and experiencing a connection or oneness with others.

With the Full Moon/Supermoon in tropical Virgo, a powerful culmination, breakthrough, or crisis emerges in regards to individual purpose, usefulness, or constructive value. We know the Virgoan cliches of hyper-vigilant, organizational genius or germophobia catalyzing ubiquitous sterility; yet one of Virgo's lesser known powers is that of self-improvement. Simply said but not so easily followed.

Self-improvement invites critique and honest self-assessment--a willingness to acknowledge where one could do better. As the Full Moon reaches its peak this month, a critical process reaches a crescendo, or there is perhaps a greater sense of engagement in a project, task, or duty. Or the glaring realization that one needs a higher purpose or something to engage with meaningfully.

Whatever shows up for you, a Virgo Full Moon provides high energy for completion of tasks, responsibilities, or organizational endeavors. If you've prepared and done your homework, this Full Moon can feel fulfilling, providing a helpful boost to any constructive streak. If you've been slacking off, wavering, or wandering, it can present a challenge to find integration and balance.

There are two simultaneous conjunctions alongside this Full Moon. The Full Moon ruler, Mercury, conjunct Neptune adds an extra element of rational dissipation, desire for escapism, or creative/imaginal musing. Regaining focus can be hard; however, Mercury/Neptune can offer a momentary glimpse into another way of seeing yourself and situation, a gentle reprieve from overly mundane concerns and endeavors.

And Venus conjunct Saturn presents resolutions to relational challenges, deepening bonds, and commitments, or a sobering look into a valuable contact or connection. A trine from the dissipating Mars/Uranus conjunction brings an unexpected surge of tasks, critique, or duties, but also a vital enthusiasm for bringing yourself fully into what needs to get done. Chiron's quincunx is indeed an awkward reminder of blemishes and imperfections, but also, an inevitable healing breakthrough manifests.
