March 9th upcoming super moon will not only be a lunar event to marvel at — it’s the second-closest moon of 2020 — but it’ll also be a time to embody the Virgo spirit of working hard, being patient, and thinking critically.
This full moon is called the Worm Moon, which signals the official start of spring. This spectacle is also known as a luminary, which means that it’s in close proximity to the Earth.
As the first of three super full moons in a row, its effects will be highly felt due to its closer proximity to Earth.
And, news flash: This full moon in particular is occurring the same day that Mercury ends its retrograde journey.
This will be extremely energetically challenging for us all as the moon will be in Virgo, a sign ruled by the planet Mercury.
There are two ways that this luminary might affect us:
We may be the victims of gaslighting or indiscretions will be revealed. This is due to the Moon’s opposition to illusive Neptune and the Sun’s alignment to deceptive Neptune, according to Stardust.
The real truth will come out at the end of the month, when Mercury leaves its retro-shade zone.
In the meantime, trust your gut and lean into your intuition.
We can really use this full moon to our advantage as long as we embody Virgo’s practicality and attention to detail.
This moon will also form a trine aspect with all the planets that are currently in Capricorn — Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto — bringing the culmination of a project or situation that began back in August of 2019 under the new moon in Virgo.
Because the trine is a favorable aspect, we can not only expect these endings to be positive, we can also make a lot of progress, especially concerning projects and situations that have been delayed or stalled.
The Virgo full moon on Monday, March 9, 2020, has a generally positive influence but there are some potential challenges to be aware of.
The March 2020 full moon is opposite Neptune which can cause confusion, deception, and scandal. This challenging aspect to the planet ruling illness and infection may also increase fears about coronavirus which may be well-based if a pandemic is declared. A trine aspect to Jupiter brings the potential good fortune, trust, and faith. However, this generous aspect to the planet of growth could also increase the spread of the virus.
These aspects to the March 2020 full moon activate Jupiter sextile Neptune. This idealistic and spiritual enlightening aspect gives the March 9 full moon its overall positive influence. It also means hope, faith, and moral integrity from Jupiter can overcome any fears, suspicions or secrets from Neptune.
Fixed stars conjunct full moon March 2020 also have a mixed influence but again, a generally positive one. They bring the potential for regrets, disgrace, and misfortune. But also the strength, courage, and spiritual force to combat fear and deception with faith and honesty.
Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Full Moon Challenges
Full Moon opposite Neptune can increase your emotional sensitivity so much that you could become confused about your own feelings and misunderstand others. You could also give the wrong impression to others.
A tendency to over idealize someone and ignore their negative character traits could leave you vulnerable to deception and scandal. Being misunderstood, victimized or rejected could lead to fear, disappointment, isolation, and self-pity. So be very clear and honest about your intentions and avoid gossip.
Your intuition may become negatively influenced by your subconscious fears and be unreliable. I speak often of simply and mindfully allow yourself to BE. Remember this. Regularly.
You could imagine things that are not real, experience strange feelings or have nightmares. Paranoia, hypochondria, weakness, guilt, and shame are possible. Take extra precautions if you are not feeling well as you could be more susceptible to illness and infection.
Full Moon Solutions
I spoke earlier of the trine aspect with other planets sitting in Capricorn. Full Moon trine Jupiter brings good feelings and happiness. It helps you share your feelings with openness and honesty to reduce the deceptive influence of Neptune. It also improves mutual respect and understanding to reduce the confusing influence of Neptune.
Increased self-awareness will help you better differentiate between truth and fiction, reality and illusion. The fortunate and generous Jupiter aspect helps bring out the more positive traits of Neptunes like imagination, creativity, and compassion. Wealth, success, popularity and friendship are possible.
Jupiter sextile Neptune brings harmony, kindness, hope and good fortune. This spiritual enlightening aspect gives a good overall perspective of who you are and your place in the world. You can better align yourself and your goals with your spiritual philosophy or religious beliefs.
You can be generous without sacrificing your living standards. You can grow spiritually without throwing away your material possessions. Optimism, good intentions, and moral integrity make this a good full moon for professional advancement, business, and legal matters.
Full Moon March 2020 Summary
The positive Jupiter aspect to the March 9 full moon brings trust and faith to overcome any confusion from the challenging Neptune. Jupiter also brings honesty and morality to expose any lies and deception from Neptune. Finally, Jupiter sextile Neptune helps you react with generosity, compassion, and forgiveness to those who have victimized, betrayed or deceived you.
Do not sink to the level of those wearing masks, see them clearly and lovingly. Once exposed all will benefit greatly in their new paths to walk.
This is a good full moon for overcoming your fears. This is also a good full moon to acknowledge your own weaknesses and forgive yourself. This will help you grow spiritually, morally and ethically. Removing guilt and self-pity will lead to a happier and more contented life.
The fixed stars conjunct full moon March 2020 bring strength, courage, self-control, prosperity, and generosity, plus mental and spiritual force. These good qualities are amplified by the helpful Jupiter aspect. But the challenging Neptune aspect increases the risk of regrets, disgrace, misfortune, and arguments with loved ones.
Neptune rules illness and infection so the March 9 full moon could be a bad omen for the spread of coronavirus, especially if the sextile aspect between Jupiter and Neptune acts to amplify the infection.
A pandemic or fears about coronavirus, fear in general, confusion, secrets, and propaganda may negatively impact on world growth. Hopefully some lucky breaks and honesty dispell those fears, leading to greater optimism and prosperity.
The full moon conjunct Denebola brings the potential major catastrophes, assassinations, uprisings, massacres, royal events, and the election or death of heads of state.
A full moon has a relationship with the previous new moon. The February 23 new moon is still having a sexy, sporty and exciting influence, bringing opportunities to develop your natural talents and reach your full potential. It is ideal for competing, starting new projects, taking risks and sexual relations.
However, new projects are best begun during the waxing phase of the Moon, from February 23 up to the March 9 full moon. The full moon lasts for two weeks up to the March 24 new moon.
I have given fair warning, something thinking to begin is now best simply begun. Me…one mark has been made. The project agreed and begun.

The energies in the universe will impact you, that is fact. Work with the universe. Harness it. You have been given details on the two opposing forces, and indeed your star sign will have a propensity to air towards one planet or the other. You can however choose and manifest the outcomes you most desire.
Me, I’ll be choosing Jupiters route. The planet is key to abundance and wealth in all areas of the human mind body and also the spirit. Spirit here and there.
A simple trick I use…using Jupiters aligned crystal which works with the same vibration. Either carrying this or wearing it. Peridot will work very nicely. Ensure your crystal is cleansed and hold forth all the details made in this lengthy post. Harnessing the crystal with the energies you wish to manifest and walk with for this month ahead.
However what I find even easier is to remind myself of Jupiter consistently. Simply adding an image of the powerful planet on a screen on my phone. I thus constantly reset my thoughts in line with the energies of the universe during this astrological phase I wish to harness and be influenced by.
And there….this week brings March charging through with a full moon, sees the end of Mercury retrograde, the changing of the clocks and the start of a beautiful new equinox.
I hope these words find you well and enable you choice.
For choice is everything we have. Mercury Retrograde, I am thankful for you. Slowing everything down. Making time to stop and have to evaluate. To assess even when most painful. To make choices of continuation or new starts. Mercury Retrograde….see you next time.
With love to you my sweet friends. I walk with you on your journey and always think of you.
