With the Libra Full Moon falling on the weekend of both Passover and Easter, the spiritual importance of this full Moon is emphasized. All full Moons highlight our relationships, and the Aries/Libra full Moon is the archetypal relationship full Moon since the two signs energize self (Aries) and other (Libra). This first full Moon of the year shows us the emotional issues we face as we relate to each other. Since it is also a super moon – closest to the Earth – it will exert a stronger influence on both the ocean’s tides and our inner tides. This is the full Moon to be conscious of ‘all our relations’ in our dealings. And a good place to start is to examine how you act towards others.
Both the signs of Aries and Libra stand at the gateway of the Equinoxes, when night and day are of equal length. Aries at the gateway of Spring exemplifies the new strength of the returning Sun (in the northern hemisphere), bringing us the potential of our individual new life. Libra stands at the gateway of the Autumn, when we unite as a community to bring in the harvest as we prepare for longer nights and colder weather. Aries and Libra stand across the Zodiac from each other, and so it is their job to unite both sides of this opposition. Libra is better at compromise than Aries, so it is up to the Libra Moon this month to get the Aries Sun to listen.
Libra is good at striking a balance if she has a bit of Aries backbone. Libra is good at diplomacy if she uses her Venus-bestowed innate charm and social skills. Libra is about fairness because she can see both sides of the issue. Uranus in Aries is charging us with the cosmic energy to do our part in creating a better future; Saturn in Libra is pressuring us to stand up for justice for and between all people. We must stretch ourselves and become more than we’ve been before if we want to make the most of this potent full Moon time. What we learn about ourselves now will affect how we handle the rest of this year’s powerful energies.
