On April 16th at 11:55 AM PDT the Sun in Aries opposes the Moon in Libra at 26 degrees 46 minutes. This Full Moon event is an interesting one, with potential for things coming to a head! We are in a very complex and dangerous time in our world, where a Full Moon is all we need! Typically, Full Moons bring out our need for resolution on what was set in motion on the New Moon. The Aries New Moon was a time to set individual goals, considering what YOU really want to happen in your life. Now, the Libra Full Moon steps back to look at the “we”, the “us” that we are part of.
Libra is a Cardinal Air Sign. Cardinal as it begins the first month of autumn, and is the “conflicted leader” who wants everyone to be happy. Libra wants to give everyone a voice when leading a group, and can compromise their own will. This makes it hard for the Libran energy to find its leadership opportunities, as its nature is to seek all sides and at times, take no sides. The air element indicates this is a mental sign, intellectual and psychological. There is a social energy, bent on the more the merrier. But, this Air Sign seeks balance through isolation at times, to recharge and rethink. They are so mental and fair, at times they go around in circles trying to make a decision. This can be overcome through discipline and courage.
Venus rules Libra, and this femine energy seeks harmony, beauty, and justice. Venus is the planet that indicates what we value, be it people, possessions, health, money or whatever matters most. Libra is an active/positive polarity, but its ruling planet is passive/negative. Thus, the need for balance with this sign. The glyph for Libra is the scales in balance. It shows us our need for relationships and functioning well within them.
So on this occasion the Sun and Full Moon are both square Pluto creating a Cardinal T-Square. Pluto, at 28 degrees Capricorn stirs it up with a challenge to these already challenged luminaries. The push and pull of these Cardinal energies leads to the tendency to resort to rebellion, and hopefully transformation. These three all want a voice here; the Sun in Aries/self, the Moon in Libra/us in relationship with others, and Pluto in Capricorn/death and rebirth. These passions are released through full communications and a hunger for understanding and being understood. We have been fed stories from one or another side, very different from each other, just what is happening in our world. Periscope that into your personal life, in that the solution is honesty and compassion for every soul. Start at home, start with your most personal relationships and see if they’re in balance or not. See if you lean to one or another polarity, and seek your footing. The time is ripe.
Jupiter and Neptune are conjoined at 24 degrees Pisces. The good news is these planets will shower us with goodwill and generosity, and will encourage us to be considerate and loving to our fellow neighbors and family. We can listen more intently and be heard as well. The not so good news is it can cloud our judgment in Pisces. We may see the broad strokes much clearer than the details, which can get us in trouble. We can be more gullible and misled. Stay grounded and allow this lofty power to rub off the rough edges in any conflicts. Open your heart up to compromise, release yourself from preconceived notions, and do the right thing.
On the West Coast, this happens mid-day, and deserves a lovely setting and lunch break;) Beauty is the theme as the flowers begin to bloom and their fragrance is noticeable. Take a moment to align yourself and breathe deep. Imagine how you can make your world more lovely which will inspire you to smile more. Whatever your goal was at the New Moon in Aries, expand it out beyond yourself to include those that you love. Hold the image in your heart of everyone transforming into their highest version, following their creativity in whatever form it takes. Like the garden, plant the seeds you wish to harvest later after the work and nurturing it takes to be successful.
This Full Moon gives us the opportunity to balance our relationships with a loving heart. Be the change you wish to see in the world, from the inside out. We hope that these energies inspire those in power to do the right thing. Celebrate this day with everything that is important to you.
