In honor of this Virgo Full Moon, I chose to pull a card from the Kuan Yin Oracle deck.
With this moon activating the Pisces/Virgo axis, we see themes of health, both spiritual and physical, emerging. I sat in contemplation of this as I shuffled the deck, asking for the message I was to share for this occasion; the message that would serve the highest good…
SWEEPING SISTER WILLOW
Sweeping Sister Willow gently brings you healing for forgiveness and release of old pain now. Let her branches gracefully sweep any sadness and pain from your heart and Soul. Your time for greater inner freedom is dawning and the cleansing [of] sadness and healing of forgiveness is the pathway to that greater freedom now. You deserve this freedom and you are swiftly becoming ready to gift it to yourself with the help of Kuan Yin.
Forgiveness is a way to raise your vibration by shedding old energies that drain you and prevent you from having all your power available to you now. It is a chance to free yourself from suffering and empower yourself. Sweeping Sister Willow guides you to forgive others and yourself abundantly and freely now. You may be very aware of your own need for forgiveness or this may come as a surprise to you, in which case, be open to hearing the truth of who or what needs to be forgiven and released [by] Willow Mother from deep within your own own heart. It may be a small incident from when you were a child or a significant experience that you have just put to one side in an effort to carry on with your own life. This approach has been admirable and yet there is always a time to confront, forgive, and move on, not just in mind, but genuinely in the body.
This oracle indicates that you are in process of forgiving others, and that you also need to forgive yourself for being human and needing to learn and grow, just like everyone else. You do not have to be perfect and sometimes it is in forgiving ourselves that we become most able to forgive others too. We suffer less from harsh judgements which do not feel good for our heart and drain our Soul forces. Instead we experience more kindness, sweet nurturing from Sweeping Sister Willow, Kuan Yin in her form of forgiveness and healing, and enjoy more peace of mind.
Forgiveness is a powerful spiritual practice that helps you disconnect your energetic circuits from people, places, situations and memories that can drain your power from the present moment and slow down your spiritual growth and the physical manifestation of your heart’s desire and Soul purpose.
At present you are growing spiritually, and you need your power in the present moment to fuel your process. Like surfing a wave, you are about to be lifted, so forgive with sincerity and wisdom, and know that this doesn’t mean you are permitting future abuse. It means you are ready to have your power in the present moment, you have compassion and allow the Universe to direct the learning of every being of this planet, you let go of thoughts of revenge and you free yourself from the past.

What a beautifully profound and auspicious message.
The energy contributing to this reading was that of LOVE, and the vibrations of the Heart Chakra, which is represented by the circle of green and pink stones.
As we bathe in the healing energy of the Virgo Full Moon, in polarity with the watery depths of the Pisces Sun, let us offer ourselves up to the cleansing power of the act of love that is forgiveness. We are ready to heal.
Told you once about your friends and neighbours
They were always seeking but they’ll never find it
It’s alright, yes it’s alright
Where to go and where to see
It’s always been this way and it can never be
It’s alright, yes it’s alright
Give it all and ask no return
And very soon you’ll see and you’ll begin to learn
That’s it’s alright, yes it’s alright
Don’t you know that it’s so good for you
You can be making love and see it all go through
But it’s alright, yes it’s alright
