Full Moon in Libra – Something’s Gotta Give!

scales

A Full Moon occurs on Wednesday, March 27th, 2013, at 5:27 AM EDT.

On Wednesday, a Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Aries opposes the Moon in Libra. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time – a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.

As with all full moons, reason tends to be eclipsed by emotions so keep calm and cooler heads will prevail. The world is full of wonder and possibility so do not let impatience compel you to throw the baby out with the bathwater. 😉

The Aries-Libra polarity is a relationship axis, where Aries represents “self” and Libra represents “other”. Where Aries is about self-assertion, Libra is about compromise. The energy of the Libra Moon is the awareness of the need for relationships and all that comes with maintaining them — compromising, negotiating, graciousness, and balancing. The Aries Sun, on the other hand, is self-assertive, leading, and personally courageous. This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between meeting our personal needs and tending to the needs of a significant other, and between independence or autonomy and dependence or companionability.

The Libra Moon is diplomatic, equality-minded, and fair-minded. The Aries Sun, however, values authenticity over tact, and is energized by independent efforts. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict.

This Full Moon is especially powerful, as the Sun aligns with Venus, Uranus, and Mars, opposing the Moon, and squaring Pluto. Changes are necessary, and resistance will only serve to attract opposition. A sextile to Jupiter alleviates some of the tension.

With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as emotions burst forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves, and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is new and not particularly rational as yet. Full Moons are about exposing or illuminating issues that are already there, but that have not yet been dealt with. Where does the Full Moon fall by house in your natal chart? Read more here.
