FULL MOON in LIBRA
April 7th, 2020
“Authenticity heals. It's real, but messy.”
― Darlene Lancer
Full Moons are tough. This one, under these circumstances sucks a bit more than usual. Aside from the fact it is deemed a ‘supermoon’, several planets, casting tense vibes heighten the effects. On the bright side, and there is thanks to Venus and Mars, it seems we are in the midst of a squeeze – a necessary pressure to help induce the rise of something we’ve been pacifying. That something is a sense of purpose. The Sun preaches ‘I am, I can, I do’ in Aries. And the reflective Moon places a spotlight on whatever completes the phrase …I am …? This Libran Moon isn’t looking for just any answer – it’s looking for the one that justifies who we are, our purpose if not to seek harmony internally and with the external world around us. In order to achieve some sense of balance however, sometimes the apple cart needs upsetting.
This Full Moon marks the end of lunar cycle that began on September 28th, 2019. It is likely if anyone or anything we have chosen to devote our time to (especially if it started 6 months ago) doesn’t fit our newly awakening sense of purpose, break-ups and a strong desire to detach from previous commitments, responsibilities will drive our actions and behaviors. Ultimately, it seems a part of our psyche is aching to be free from constraints that simply no longer serve – even if our sense of purpose remains elusive.
Astrologically speaking the Full Moon in Libra latches onto our emotional world on a mission to find balance and harmony in personal one on one relationships and within the community. The Sun in Aries fills our heart with the courage to just do it and worry about the consequences later. Mars, Aries guiding planet is stricken by an erratic, unstable Uranus who insists changes be made within the blink of an eye. And Venus, ruler of Libra, swings in the freedom loving sign of Gemini. In Gemini Venus, planet of wants and desires is more curious than normal, scanning all the possibilities and looking for more breathing room to experience all life has to offer. And so, while being stuck at home possibilities are limited … except when it comes to making changes in our personal lives, in our relationship to others.

“The greatest challenge in life is to be our own person and accept that being different is a blessing and not a curse. A person who knows who they are lives a simple life by eliminating from their orbit anything that does not align with his or her overriding purpose and values. A person must be selective with their time and energy because both elements of life are limited.”

“Equitable and righteous thoughts are essential. A humble person who seeks an authentic life overlooks errors of other people, accepts criticism, and assumes exclusive responsibility for performing the necessary task in his or her own life. A person with integrity throws off darkness and feeds his or her soul.”
