Virgo Full Moon

Moon opposes Sun at 10:07 am, Mar.5, 2015

As I've said many times before, I understand very little about astrology. I do like to read what April Elliott Kent writes as she usually puts her knowledge of astrology into stories of insights about her own life experience and then extrapolates from that a wee bit of coaching from the lesson she has learned.

This month she writes about the Virgo Full Moon with the sun in the opposite sign of Pisces.

Kent writes: "We're reminded at the Full Moon, when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs, that we tend to fare best when our natural tendencies are tempered by their opposites. Virgo is at its best when it borrows from its opposite sign, Pisces, which tends to react empathetically to human frailty. Or course, a Virgo ... might say that Pisces' policy of rewarding imperfection with kindness is the same as having no standards at all. Pisces would say nothing in response, but simply smile understandingly."

Important take away - Balance

"... the ability to perceive the faults that prevent others from being great is no more important than the ability to make them believe that they are capable of greatness at all."

Do you have a team, clients, employee, or children? These are important words to remember. We are all coaches to someone. What kind of coach are you?

This speaks to me as a Piscean!

I am not a coach, but I am a very active member of Toastmasters, where "evaluation" is a key component of the way people are encouraged to develop their speaking and leadership skills.

We are taught to be alongside the person we are evaluating, and sandwich a recommendation about where a speech or role could be improved between two commendations of aspects which worked particularly well.

This resonates with my Piscean "kindly" nature and allows me to deliver genuine and hopefully helpful "criticism" in a way with which I am comfortable.

Balance gives you clarity.

And in a place of clarity, figuring yourself out is much, much easier.

Shelagh, it's good to hear from another Piscean. I didn't know that about Toasstmasters! Thanks for adding that to the conversation!

Pat, I would love to hear more of your thinking how balance gives you clarity.
