full moon in libra

april 11, 2017

On April 11, 2017, at 12:08am, there will be a Full Moon at 21 degrees, 32 minutes of Libra. The Moon in astrology is our emotional nature. What and how we feel. When the Moon is Full our feelings can become overwhelming in either direction. It can be a time when we finally can make a decision, or take a stand. Where we have a realization that is sobering, or joyful, that requires a commitment, or a release. The Full Moon is one of those times, when we really feel and understand that there is a connection between our consciousness and the cosmos.  

This Full Moon in Libra shines its beautiful bright light on our partnerships. There will be more than the usual amount of thoughts, feelings, and meaningful discussions concerning, or with the important people in our lives.  There is also the relationship we each have with ourselves.  How can we create more balance, beauty and harmony within ourselves, and then, bring that forth into our outer lives?

Libra is a sign that is socially graceful, drawn to art and beauty, and through an intuitive sense of fairness, ultimately seeks peaceful resolution of conflict. However, with such a strong desire to keep things smooth and pleasant, it can be easy for Libra to sweep problems under the carpet, which in the long run creates bigger problems to be addressed later on.

This Libra Full Moon is part of a cardinal T-square with Jupiter, the Sun, Uranus, and Pluto. Cardinal signs represent initiation; that spark where creation occurs, and something comes forth out of nothingness.

Jupiter in Libra sits close to the Moon adding a layer of cooperation and optimism. Also in the astrological mix is Uranus and the Sun both in Aries, opposing the Moon and Jupiter in Libra. This brings up the dynamic of the needs of the individual vs the needs of the relationship. Frustration and fear vs mediation and peace. These are issues that surface in all relationships at some point. When handled honestly, lovingly, with respect and consideration for both, healing and a deeper connection can result

The T-square is created with Pluto in Capricorn, squaring both the Sun and Uranus as well as the Moon and Jupiter creating a challenging, yet compelling dynamic to use our personal power wisely. To commit to what truly matters to each of us in our lives.

Mercury in Taurus, which just stationed retrograde on April 9th guides us to reflect, reconsider, and have conversation about what brings us security. Taurus is an earth sign and naturally gravitates to finding security through stable relationships, skills, and resources that provide a certain level of calm, comfort and support. And when we think about Libra, and relationships, I think we can all agree that heartfelt communication is foundational to the stability of our personal connections.

During this Moon and after while Mercury is retrograde, spend some time with loved ones talking, listening, sharing stories, ideas and dreams. With intention and attention greater understanding and cooperation with those we love is possible.
