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 take place. The energy of a full moon is Yin-centered; it is a time of rest, reflection, and release to aid in the process of manifestation.
The Libra Full Moon will take place on Saturday, April 16th, and will be opposing the Sun in Aries. Libra rules connections and our ability to find balance, beauty, and fairness in our relationships. This Libra Moon is asking us to initiate more balance between how we assert ourselves as individuals, and how we relate to others in partnership. Libra and Aries’ opposition signifies I vs. We!
I vs. We
Aries wants independence, Libra wants interdependence- together this is an opening to truly reflect on whether or not our relationships are properly aligned with our values and beliefs. Self-worth and reciprocity are the themes for these next few weeks as we continue to work with this venus energy into the Taurus season.
The full moon is taking place in two masculine signs, further encouraging direct and intentional action. Because Libra, ruled by Venus, prefers peace over confrontation, this may challenge us to initiate uncomfortable yet important conversations with others. We can use the power of Aries to feel confident and supported in expressing our values and needs to others. By incorporating the energy of Libra we can initiate discomfort with grace, ease, and diplomacy.
Important questions we can begin asking ourselves 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 can I find more balance in my life? Where can I be of better service to others?
This is a time to shed awareness on old wounds that have been holding us back and keeping us in misaligned relationships. Once we take time to focus on our own personal values along with taking care of our needs then we can gather in harmonious connections with others. It’s time to put yourself first.
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 moon. 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.
Happy Full Moon!
