WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
Just in time for a 4 planet retrograde, we get graced with a powerful Full Moon in Libra, the polar opposite of the Sun’s current home in Aries.
While these two cardinal signs carry a lot of the same qualities, they also possess ones which cause much disruption from the ways they do not match. This is projected in a means of aggression, impatience, and very low tolerance. This is a time when the masculine meet the feminine, and it can go either way depending on where you are in life – you can have a battle of the sexes, a struggle for dominance of these two polarities. Or, you can find it to be rather healing and magical as harmony is brought into your life.
Self-awareness is needed, do not react to life, slow down and consider how you can create the life you seek. The Full Moon illuminates what is needed to be seek from within, for it governs the soul; our sub conscious, emotions, and who are within. Any blockages we have from seeking our higher calling, or deepest desires, will be called out to be addressed.
Libra asks how you can create peace where there is war, how you can bring compromise to where there is struggle, and who you are in love, or your partnerships. These are questions which bring life changing truth’s.
While the pull is drawn more within because of the retrograde energy from Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn, we can see issue triggered in our environment as to make us create the changes needed to bring that sense of peace, harmony, and happiness into our lives. Relationships, projects or new plans will grow, or they will end, as matters of the heart is put on display when asked, “what do you truly desire. What is your truth?”
The key for this Full Moon is: Balance, between the masculine and feminine which promotes ultimate growth and evolution. This is the next level for many as they move towards new stages in their life. A bit more inner work must be done before they can step onto the new levels waiting for them. Changes have occurred within the past few months which ripped old foundations out from some, with the last New Moon in Aries they saw a glimpse of what lies beyond the rubble. While there is a surge of energy to act, the Libra moon says, slow down and consider your options first.
The last Aries New Moon was all about setting new intentions, you may see some results of your effort during this full moon, but the time for real movement in plans comes at the end of the month, closer to May. We are impatient and want to take what is rightfully ours, but we cannot risk causing delay or creating obstacles for ourselves by picking the fruit before it has ripened.
White lies, or a need to withhold information as a means to keep the peace, or fear of provoking the beast will also be highlighted. Be honest, even if you are afraid to. Vanity, or added aggression to prove your point over others, will also be issues to confront. Bite your tongue, if you cannot say something nice, then do not say anything at all. Promote peace and understand that not everyone shares your point of view – use the Libra way and be diplomatic, and agree to disagree. The war driven Aries pushes full force towards its opponent, horns first and bulldozes through their obstacles. Libra, on the other hand, wants compromise, and to come up with peaceful terms. These are conflicting energies, but if they work together then the vision becomes clearer towards the right direction.
Romance is heighted as well, as both these signs are idealistic when it comes to love. However, there may be issues when it comes to dependence on love, and a need for more freedom. We want to be close to our loved once, but not too close – there is a need to establish a strong sense of identity. You cannot have a true loving relationship without two people are whole within themselves, and do not need to take from the other, but rather share themselves equally. Those who enable others will be met with feeling drained or having enough of being fed off of, and those who depend on others will be faced with situations to claim their independence. This may not be easy for most, but true growth can be made individually, and within the relationship if the work is done.
Remember, self-awareness is key. Libra asks that you promote peace, bring balance and seek harmony in all that you do.
