Virgo Full Moon: Goddess Thalassa
On March 18th we have a full moon in Virgo. This is the 6th full moon at 27 degrees of its sign, pointing us to a larger cycle of time beyond the lunar cycle herself. We are nearing the end of a deeply cleansing cycle, yet still invited to lean into the process of letting go and allowing things to be destabilized so as to ultimately be reborn.
This full moon is powerful in that it invites and welcomes the Jupiter Neptune conjunction in Pisces, which is exact on April 12th 2022. At this full moon, Jupiter and Neptune will be within 5 degrees of each other, which is what astrologers term "conjunct" The exact alignment happens on April 12th but the effects will ripple through the rest of 2022. In this broadcast I discuss how these energies are perfectly aligned with the Virgo Full moon, and why they are ushering us into an even deeper state of release, and ultimately moving through fear into love.
With this full moon we have Goddess Thalassa. A primordial Goddess of the sea, known to have given birth not only to elemental creatures of the sea, but potentially to all creatures everywhere (ourselves included :) Thalassa is unique in that she is somewhat untouched by greco-roman remodeling of more pagan and earth based goddesses.
Nevertheless, she is untouched in the sense that she was "forgotten". Forgotten means left out of 99% of the cultural writings that the modern western world hangs its hat upon. Being left out is somehow still on the same level of being slandered and labeled as evil. Yet, she was so big and vast, they could not take her out with one label.. so instead of slander or misnomer she was somehow just forgotten. This is where things get rich and juicy.
We have only two accounts of Thalassa in Aesop's fables, in both accounts, as mentioned in the podcast, a sailor is cursing her for having caused death to his ship. In both cases, a large and voluptuous woman takes form and rises out of the sea to respond something akin to "Son, you are mistaken, I am as calm if not more calm than the land. You need to understand the element of Air. It was the wind with my water that caused that to happen." Perplexing even today she is speaking of the unseen forces that govern our world, and pointing us back to the laws of the universe and laws of creation. I hope that you enjoy this podcast!
