The 2024 Full Moon in Virgo Horoscope: What’s in Store for You Come February 24

This full moon phase could be just what you need!

While one particular day of February may be dedicated to love, the mid-winter month was made for prioritizing more connection with loved ones and getting in touch with your heart’s desires — in part because from February 18 to March 19, the sun is in romantic Pisces. At the same time, though it may not feel like it, the promise of spring may inspire you to clear out clutter — literal or figurative — that’s no longer serving you and to streamline your routine so that you’re homing in on the commitments and activities that resonate the most with your spirit. And those are all themes to hold in mind in the days surrounding February’s lucky, emotional, well-being-enhancing full moon in Virgo.  

On Saturday, February 24 at 7:31 a.m. ET/4:31 a.m. PT, this cerebral full moon falls in Virgo, the mutable earth sign whose ruler is Mercury, the messenger planet that oversees how we communicate, think, make decisions, and gather and share information. The 2024 Virgo full moon is a culmination point of work and self-reflection that’s been in play for the last couple of weeks (since the last new moon on February 9) as well as the past six months (since the new moon in Virgo that occurred on September 14, 2023). It’s a chance to hit the finish line on projects related to your daily routine, health and self-improvement as well as a period in which you could become even more acutely aware of the relationship between your head and your heart. And with the moon forming a harmonizing angle to Jupiter, the planet of fortune, which is currently in fellow earth sign Taurus, optimism and creativity could soar. Here, everything you need to know about what this lunar event has to offer in order to make the most of it. 

What is a full moon?

Full moons occur once — less frequently, twice — per month when the moon and the sun sit directly opposite one another in the sky and in the zodiac. Because they’re sitting across from one another, the sun’s vibrant light is able to reflect off of the moon, leading to a gasp-worthy, luminous sight to behold in the night sky. During a full moon, the moon almost becomes like a nighttime version of the sun, illuminating the sky even brighter than any other time in the lunar cycle. For that reason, astrologically speaking, it is a time during which it feels like a spotlight has been cast on our deepest, most intense emotions. And as the sun opposite moon dynamic also mirrors an amplified focus on partnerships, full moons are made for reflecting — and taking action — on relationship matters. 

You can work with this energy for four days before and after the event occurs. In astrology, the moon rules our emotions, intuition and nurturing style. And when it’s full, all of those aspects of our inner life are heightened. You could feel particularly sensitive, empathic, fired up or even rundown if an emotional situation has become thoroughly draining. Full moons also present the chance to see how far you’ve come since planting seeds during the new moon that occurred either two weeks or six months prior.

What is the full moon in Virgo?

February’s full moon in Virgo asks you to get clear on how your thoughts and daily actions are aligning with your heart and spirituality. Virgo, the sign of the Maiden, is innately committed to the practical, everyday details of life and rational thinking. Its opposite sign — and the sign that the sun is currently moving through — is Pisces, the water sign known for being deeply emotional and empathic. And this juxtaposition is highlighted now. During the days around this full moon, you’ll have a chance to reconcile those two often divergent areas of your life. 

It also bears noting that despite Virgo’s reputation for being pragmatic and cerebral, the earth sign is one of the most intuitive of the zodiac. Passionate about self-improvement, the Maiden is particularly capable of tuning into their inner voice, which means this lunar event can enhance this ability for you as well. It may also be an especially social and busy moment, given that Virgo is ruled by buzzy Mercury, the communication planet, and associated with the sixth house of daily routine and health.

The 2024 full moon in Virgo can amplify your joy and fortune

The full moon occurs at 5 degrees of Virgo, while Jupiter, the planet of abundance, sits at 10 degrees of fellow earth sign Taurus, meaning that the two meet in an exciting, positivity-bolstering trine. The moon is the celestial body that oversees our intuition and how we process our emotions, while Jupiter’s job is to expand and magnify whatever it is connected to. And because the connection is a harmonious one, this full moon could set the stage for amplified happiness, heartfelt emotions and luck. What’s more, both the moon and Jupiter are in earth signs, so it’s possible to adopt a grounded, step-by-step approach to processing and expressing your feelings. And with this being a full moon ruled by Mercury (because Virgo is ruled by the communication planet) and Jupiter being the planet of knowledge and higher learning, expect the desire to talk about your feelings and to feel especially connected to loved ones and friends to skyrocket!  

The 2024 full moon is an opportunity to find clarity

In addition to harmonizing with Jupiter, the moon also opposes messenger Mercury and taskmaster Saturn, both sitting alongside the sun in the mutable water sign Pisces. In turn, the moon’s face-off with Mercury may cause a bit of haziness, challenging you to figure out exactly how you feel — or to pinpoint the best way to express how you feel to others. And Saturn’s influence could make you more conscious of boundaries within your relationships. While both of these planetary connections might initially sound challenging, they also present a chance to check in with yourself and care for yourself in a meticulous, thoughtful way. 

Here, how the Virgo full moon will affect you based on your sign. (Be sure to read both your sun and your rising sign if you know it. If you don’t, you can find it in your birth chart or by using this CafeAstrology calculator.)
