Do Not Love Half Lovers – Kahlil Gibran
Do not love half lovers
Do not entertain half friends
Do not indulge in works of the half talented
Do not live half a life and do not die a half death
If you choose silence, then be silent
When you speak, do so until you are finished
Do not silence yourself to say something
And do not speak to be silent
If you accept, then express it bluntly
Do not mask it
If you refuse then be clear about it
for an ambiguous refusal
is but a weak acceptance
Do not accept half a solution
Do not believe half truths
Do not dream half a dream
Do not fantasize about half hopes
Half a drink will not quench your thirst
Half a meal will not satiate your hunger
Half the way will get you no where
Half an idea will bear you no results
Your other half is not the one you love
It is you in another time yet in the same space
It is you when you are not
Half a life is a life you didn’t live,
A word you have not said
A smile you postponed
A love you have not had
A friendship you did not know
To reach and not arrive
Work and not work
Attend only to be absent
What makes you a stranger to them closest to you
and they strangers to you
The half is a mere moment of inability
but you are able for you are not half a being
You are a whole that exists
to live a life not half a life
The horoscopes are valid for the Full Moon in Virgo that occurs on March 18th 2022, and the week leading up to the Full Moon and the week afterwards.

The horoscopes are listed from Aries – Pisces
Aries Rising and Aries Sun
Dear Aries, this Full Moon may come with the completion of a work project or the gaining of insights in relationship to work related topics or questions you’ve been pondering on. More so, this Full Moon illuminates the ways in which you’re of service to the world, whether that’s in work or somewhere else. Where and how do you invest your time and energy to others? Where do you provide healing work, support and service? And how does it make you feel? Depleted? Or more alive? It’s not necessarily a bad thing to expend more energy than we get in return; if that’s temporary and if you can regain the energy elsewhere. There are many different ways in which we can be of service to the world. It’s all about finding the balance, between making offerings and making sure you’re taken care of. This Full Moon may also illuminate the ways in which you best and/or want to take care of yourself. Whether it’s sleep, eating habits, sports, meditation, counseling. Whether it’s physical, mental, spiritual or emotional (self)care. More and more you’re learning about what you need to do in order to reload your battery, in order to be able to show up at the office.
Taurus Rising and Taurus Sun
Dear Taurus, please take the day off on March 18th (or one of the surrounding days) and go to your favourite museum, book a table at your favourite restaurant or put on your favourite lingerie and decorate your silk sheets with rose petals. It’s time to be taken out on a date, whether by your lover or by yourself. The Full Moon in Virgo warms your pleasure spots, illuminates your sources of creativity and inspiration and asks you to mark some time in your calendar to indulge in the good stuff in life. As a Taurus you know that art, beauty and pleasure require effort. Your gifted at creating valuable crafts and sharing them with the world. As a Taurus you also know how to fully enjoy that art, beauty and pleasure. You hold the gift of slowing down and fully using your senses. Pisces season has been all about sharing your creativity and beauty with the world; offering your Venusian gifts to your audiences and the people you care about. With the end of Pisces season, you will want to indulge in and enjoy these gifts yourself for a moment.
Gemini Rising and Gemini Sun
Dear Gemini, a home project, family endeavour or a private storyline may come to completion or fulfilment with this Full Moon. Which may be as practical as unpacking the last box after moving houses, or putting the last hand to that kitchen renovation project. It may also be about something coming to completion within your family, that started about six months ago. Or maybe you’re closing a series of therapy sessions that was all about rewriting your life story and relating in a different way to your past and ancestry. Whatever it is, this Full Moon marks the completion of a period of growing stronger roots. There’s a sense of stability and grounding. Which is beautiful. Because just like trees, we need strong roots in order to grow high. Much of the astrology in this year, 2022, is about you growing high. You’re making important steps towards a more abundant future. Even if it doesn’t feel like it right now (sometimes these steps feel so small and insignificant in the present); in future times you’ll look back at early 2022 and notice that you’ll have made some important steps and planted important seeds. Take a pause with this Full Moon and enjoy your private time on your couch with a good book and/or watching a movie with your family (or whatever you feel like doing).
Cancer Rising and Cancer Sun
Dear Cancer, these past few weeks have pulled your focus to your future dreams and hopes, the journeys that you plan on making, the pilgrimages that you’re undertaking, the studies that you’re about to start, the research that you’re doing, the novels that you want to write, the big bold moves that you want to make… With this Full Moon, your focus shifts for a moment back to the here and now and to your present surroundings. To your community and to your close connections. To your daily rituals and daily movements. To your diary writings, pen pal exchanges, and emails coming in. About six months ago there was probably a new start in your life that had to do with either your immediate environment, community, communications and/or daily rituals. With this Full Moon there’s some type of completion or fulfilment in relationship to that. Either the actual completion of, for example, a writing project. Or, for example, the gaining of insights and revelations in connection to your daily rituals.
Leo Rising and Leo Sun
Dear Leo, self-esteem is a precarious thing for you. Your sign has the bad rap of being self-entered, arrogant and self-inflated. Leo is ruled by the Sun, which is at the centre of our solar system and all other planets move around it. Leo gives a lot about appearance and about what other people think of them. Yes, sometimes Leo shows a bit of arrogance. But the thing that I’ve come to learn about Leos, is that they are just very aware of being noticed by others. Which can be quite stressful actually! Which can create insecurity and/or pressure to perform. This is why Leos tend to be so charming and why they tend to dress so well. They put in the work and effort! I’ve come to learn that behind the performance of a Leo, often isn’t that much arrogance, but more so self-awareness. And this Full Moon, dear Leo, is here to remind you that your (self-)worth isn’t dependent on how well you perform. You’re worth everything, because of the unique person that you are. You’re special and beautiful as you are. Just being you is enough. This Full Moon is here to put the spotlight on your worth (which is unconditional by the way!); and I hope you allow to receive that spotlight and own it. Whether you’re home alone enjoying some private time or clubbing in your disco dress; go bathe in that spotlight and inflate yourself a bit.
Virgo Rising and Virgo Sun
Dear Virgo, the Full Moon in your sign illuminates you. It illuminates the love within yourself. The love that you feel, for others, for the world. It illuminates the love that your are. This Full Moon is truly a beautiful one and brings magic to your most important connections. Whether it’s in business or in love, these days the most important connections in your life are flowing with ease. Connections are created and sustained by mutual effort. With this Full Moon you may notice the generosity of others towards you, and your generous attitude towards others. In coming together, is where the magic happens for you with this Full Moon. Which may be in the most intimate coming together, but it may equally be in a group of some sorts. Dear Virgo, spread the love… and it will multiply… and it will enrich the world… and it will also come right back to you.
Libra Rising and Libra Sun
Dear Libra, healing is not a linear process. Two steps forward, one step back. The same goes for work, whether it’s physical work, sports, or doing your desk job, results are often not seen immediately. The fruits of our labor develop over time and are harvested on a later day. So, in the process, while doing all the work, while being on that healing journey, take a pause every once in a while. Take a pause with this Full Moon. Check in with yourself and acknowledge how far you’ve come! Take a moment to care for yourself and acknowledge all that you feel. Acknowledge the good and the bad. The hopes, the dreams and the fears. Let them all pass by, as if doing zen meditation. Dear Libra, have trust that you’re on the right path. Even if you’re not yet harvesting the fruits that you’re hoping to taste, have trust that you’ll do so in the future. Keep going at it, keep doing the work. But with this Full Moon, take a short pause.
Scorpio Rising and Scorpio Sun
Dear Scorpio, this Full Moon illuminates your social connections / professional networks / instagram audience / friendships / the communities you’re part of. How do you enrich your people? How do your people enrich you? What creative offerings do you bring to the world? And who are the people that inspire you to do so? Who are the people that you dream with? Together dreaming for a brighter future. Who are the people that you pray with? March with… protest with…? Who are the people that you vote for? And who votes for you? There’s so much fortune to be found in our connections. Most of us humans in modern day societies are primarily focused on the day to day stuff, on going to the office, on feeding the kids. All very important stuff!! This Full Moon reminds you, though, that there’s more to life than the daily to do list. Fortune is found in being connected. Small, but very valuable, happiness is found in being a part of a greater whole. That experience, of being part of a community or even humanity, is so incredibly profound. With this Full Moon, take a moment to notice and reflect on how you feel connected with others.
Sagittarius Rising and Sagittarius Sun
Dear Sagittarius, family gatherings and other private joyous occasions offered pleasant distractions from your exploded email inbox and other important (maybe even intense) conversations and meetings these past few weeks. Pisces season has been all about enjoying family time and / or the enjoyment of private life / home life. Which doesn’t mean that your work life was absent and that you abandoned the office completely. You’ve actually been quite busy lately moving around and about and being in touch with many people. The Full Moon comes with the completion / fulfilment of (or gathering of insights related to) a part of your career or public life. Maybe you started a new job, a new project, a new endeavour about six months ago. Now is the time to take stock. What has grown since last Summer? How do you feel about it? And where do you want to go next? This Full Moon creates some magic in the axis in your chart that is about home / private life & career / public life. How do you balance these two parts of your life? How do they contribute to one another?
Capricorn Rising and Capricorn Sun
Dear Capricorn, what travel plans did you start to dream about last summer? What future did you start hoping for? What plane tickets did you want to buy? What studies did you want to start? What dreams did you start to dream? The Full Moon in Virgo illuminates what has come of the seeds that you planted during the New Moon in Virgo last Summer. Some things may have turned out as you hoped, other things didn’t. This Full Moon shows you where you need or want to update or change your hopes and dreams. There’s much magic in living in the here and now. ‘Be here now’ as Ram Dass used to say. Pisces season has illuminated this eastern spiritual wisdom for you. Focusing on the future is valuable when it comes to getting clear on your dreams, visions and hopes and when it comes to setting goals and knowing in what direction to go. This Full Moon in Virgo helps you to do so. Just don’t forget… that your mental and emotional peace aren’t necessarily found in the future; the challenge and the gift is to be content and at peace in the present moment.
Aquarius Rising and Aquarius Sun
Dear Aquarius, these past few weeks you’ve been reviewing your assets. Whether that’s your money, your knowledge, your skills, or the complete package that is you. You may have even received some blessings, extra money coming in. Or possibly you started a new job, started a new project or found a new way of making money. If it hasn’t been about your finances, other assets of yours have been illuminated; like the gifts that you carry with you. You may have received a boost of confidence, realizing that you have so much to offer. Because, dear Aquarius, you do have so much to offer! This Full Moon highlights that, it shows especially where others have something to gain from you. Where you can share your love, wisdom, talents, feelings with one another. Which also raises the question: who is the person / who are the people, that you want to share certain parts of yourself with? What would you like to receive in return? What do you want these collaborations or intimate relationships to look like? How can you grow together?
Pisces Rising and Pisces Sun
Dear Pisces, the Full Moon in Virgo brings some magic into your most important relationships (which may be in business or in love, it may be in a single friendship or in a group gathering). Either way, this Full Moon illuminates something about your social / relationship life, in a positive way. Even if you haven’t experienced much luck in love, this Full Moon has the potential to bring you some helpful, comforting and supportive insights in regards to the ways you ‘do’ relationships. Since the start of this year, you may felt your confidence growing. You’re worth so damn much Pisces. You’re learning so much about yourself these months. You may have also started learning important lessons when it comes to the dynamic of I and You. This Full Moon may also come with the completion or fulfilment of something that started six months ago in your relationship department. Whether it’s about a goodbye or the next step in a commitment, trust the process. You’re on the right way. If you are able to and if you desire so, spend this Full Moon (or one of the days around it) with someone dear to you. This Full Moon is all about connection for you.
