Full Moon in Virgo ~ Embrace "Otter" Energy!
Full Moon in Virgo (Thursday, 10:05 pm PST)!
Sometimes it's fun to learn and explore through association, so as I was feeling my way into Thursday’s Full Moon in Virgo, I drew an animal oracle card (from the Druid Animal Oracle Deck), and the animal totem that showed up was: Otter. The Otter represents: Joy, play and helpfulness. The perfect remedy for the sometimes overly serious, get-everything-perfect, yet ever so helpful Virgo Full Moon energies!
Here’s what the Druid's say: “Otter invites us to play, to ‘go with the flow’ of life and experience. Allow yourself the freedom and pleasure of relaxing and letting go of all daily concerns. Otter could be prompting you to take a day or weekend out of your usual routine—to do something purely for fun.
Your practical self (Hello Virgo!) may tell you that you cannot afford the time, but deep down you know you need to take care of yourself to be of real value to others. Someone may even be coming into your life who will show you how to play again—something you may have forgotten as you accepted the responsibilities of growing up.
Otter shows us that being playful can even lead us to catch the salmon—the fish prized by the Druids as the totem of wisdom. Drawing this card also confirms in us the sense that we are truly protected.”
So, this Full Moon, let’s all take time to play, to be a little frisky, a bit adventurous and indulge in some light-hearted fun; to embrace our caring feminine side, but in balanced way. Knowing that there is great wisdom in joy and playfulness.
Happy Virgo Full Moon!
