A full moon carries a specific energy and theme based on the planetary arrangement in the sky at the exact moment it is fully illuminated. It’s a great time to connect to nature and observe the brightness in the sky and the signal from the Moon that she is half way through a cycle. This is the culmination of the external masculine energy. After the full moon, we start descending down towards the New Moon.
The moon represents your emotional body and subconscious.
The part of yourself that you typically keep hidden or buried under your social personality. During the time of a full moon, all of that comes to the surface, asking to be seen. This is why many of you feel extra emotional, or as some say, the crazy comes out. It’s not that you are crazy, but it can be uncomfortable to feel all the feels.
The full Moon in Libra is the first full Moon of the Astrological year which starts with Aries in late March after the Spring Equinox. This Moon is shining a light on our closest relationships, our teamwork and communication with important matters.
Libra is also the great decision maker – great at weighing up all the options, though not necessarily making quick decisions. So let the energy of this moon help you weigh up any decisions you need to make.
Prepare for some big emotions to come out in love during this lunation, as the full moon will be in opposition to Venus and Chiron which is a tense kind of energy and could call us to consider how we can balance our own desires and needs and other people who rely on us. It is about learning to share who we are truly at our core without hiding aspects of ourself we may not want others to see. Is it not better for a select few to love us as we are unconditionally than to have dozens of friends who do not truly know us?
Our connection to others and relationships are always part of the energy of a Full Moon which is about external connections, but it is even more noticeable during the Full Moon in Libra. Because you’ll have a heightened awareness of your emotions, you’ll have incredible clarity about any inequity in your partnerships.
With this first full moon of the Astrological year, what do I want to release from the year just past?
What decisions do I need to make to move on? Is there anything I need to let go of or stop holding on to allow that to happen?
Where am I sacrificing my needs in service of others? Is there resentment there about it?
How can I speak my truth without being afraid of offending anyone?
Is there anyone stopping me from speaking my truth and why are they doing that?
Is there any inequity in my closest relationships that I am putting up with?
What is the root of this issue? (old patterns, bad habits, lack of self-love?)
Is there anything I can gain by staying in this pattern or am I just using it as an excuse to avoid the hard work of evolving?
Who will I become if I stop struggling with this problem? (how will it look, feel, sound?)
Imagine letting go of this problem…who are the people still supporting me in my life and what do my days look like?
What can I make a decision on and wrap up as we descend into the New Moon and this Lunar cycle finishes?
