Full Moons are a time of culmination and completion of cycles that call our attention to turn inward and reflect on what is no longer serving our growth and development. We are reminded during this time to slow down and allow things to reveal themselves so that healing and transformation can occur. The energy of a full moon is Yin centered; it is a time of rest, reflection, and release to aid in the manifestation process.
Self vs. Others
We have a Pink Full Moon taking place on April 5th, allowing us to find balance within our relationships! Libra rules relationships and finds equality and fairness within legal matters, including contracts and business relations. These relationships do not necessarily have to be romantic but rather any type of one-on-one relationship.
The Sun in Aries will oppose the Moon in Libra, asking us to find the balance between self and others. Because Libra strives for balance and fairness in partnership, they can sometimes overcompensate for the sake of others to keep the peace. This can be a great time to find more balance between commitments to self and others and set healthy boundaries.
Chiron and Jupiter will also oppose this Full Moon in Libra, offering us an opportunity to heal wounds that prevent us from speaking up about our needs and putting ourselves first without feeling guilt or shame. Mercury will be in the sign of Taurus, a fellow Venusian sign, which can help communicate our needs in a way that brings balance, understanding, and harmony to our life.
There are a lot of supportive aspects to this Full Moon. However, conflict resolution with self vs. others will be a theme.
Essential questions we can consider during this Full Moon are: What are my values? How do I value myself vs. others? Which connections are no longer serving me? What relationships support the way that I value myself? Where am I avoiding conflict + confrontation?
Ways to Work with this Libra Energy
Libra rules the heart chakra, so working with roses, rose water, or even rose quartz can bring beautiful healing and aesthetics during this month. Green Aventurine is also a beautiful crystal to work with to help open the heart chakra and develop more faith and trust.
Surround yourself with pink and green colors to activate the heart chakra, along with red to stimulate power and stability. Libra rules the arts- this is a great time to artistically express yourself through dance, theater, singing, painting, etc.
Activating your Solar Plexus during this time through physical activity can also boost your courage and confidence to stand up for yourself, and use your voice.
Happy Full Moon!
