Full Moon in Virgo: to hold or to fold

Many are experiencing some sense of loss, confusion, or feelings of unclarity as the stellium of planets in Pisces aspects Neptune, then Mars.

Mercury squares Mars along with Venus as we move through the first part of the last week of February. Venus peaked in its square to Mars February 23-26, and is still within an orb of influence. This transit can cause sparks to  fly one way or another in relationships. This can also affect any social relationship or money.
For some this has been a time of stress and friction, and yet for others this energy has been used to liven up the social or romantic life.
Mercury is square Mars, and the transit is exact February 26, but its influence will be felt before and after.
Mercury-Mars transits can be a time of high mental energy, communication and friction, anger or upset. Heated arguments can occur, impulsive decisions can be made, disagreements, irritation or upset can be common and some may lash out at others. You should use caution with driving and transportation at this time as it is accident prone. If you are feeling angry or frustrated it is best to let this energy pass before striking out at something or someone you may later regret. Then again, some may be relieved to finally speak their mind.
All of this is setting the stage for the full moon in Virgo that occurs March 1.
Virgo rules the 6th house of health and work, and it is here many of us will be focused at this time.
A Virgo full Moon can be discerning, but the other side of this is criticism. We could face self-criticism, or feel critical of others.
While Virgo is typically a sign connected with groundedness and clarity the opposite may hold true this time as this Moon opposes Neptune, and this may prove to be a challenging time for many.
Moon-Neptune transits tend to increase the subconscious drives that are already there. As Neptune is the planet of illusion, delusion and confusion, clarity will not be easy to come by. We can experience withdrawal of ourselves or others, hypersensitivity, confusion and indecisiveness, impractical ideas, deception or self deception or overindulgence in alcohol or substances if that tendency exists already.
The other side of this transit can be creativity, psychic awareness, spiritual awakenings and compassion for others.
By March 4, the Sun will conjunct Neptune at 13 degrees of Pisces. Many events connected to the full moon will play out at or around this time. This can be a time of creativity, spirituality and compassion, or it can be a time fraught with confusion, sadness and lack of clarity or even betrayal. Or it can be a combination of both.
If you experienced issues when Mercury conjuncted Neptune February 25, or when Mars was square Neptune you could see a replay of these or similar issues at this time.
As Pisces rules the 12th house some situations may relate to endings in some way or secret information can be revealed at this time.
Either way, the powerful stellium ( 4 planets in the same sign=Pisces) will end soon as Mercury and Venus enter Aries in about 10 days and we begin the journey toward spring and the astrological New year!
