LIBRA FULL MOON: THE FACES OF EACH OTHER
The Full Moon arrives at 21 degrees of Libra on Tuesday, April 11 at 2:08 AM EDT.
Endowed with the spectacle of radiant light, the Full Moon endows us with a beacon of hope inspired by her magical presence against the blackness of the night sky. No matter what is going on in our lives, this illumination acts as an energy transference which invigorates our inner world. In essence, the Full Moon activates conscious awareness of those areas of our psyches which have been cowering in the deep caverns of the unconscious. Once the light has been cast, will we see what’s there? And as this Full Moon is dressed in the partnership sign of Libra, the question becomes more of: will we see who is there?
Jupiter and the Moon are close traveling companions at this time. Don’t forget to look up! You cannot miss the effervescent planet as it aligns with the Moon for the next 3 days. As Jupiter offers tremendous beneficence, the planetary giant presents extraordinary expansiveness as well. Feelings, conditions and circumstances loom large. At this juncture, our current state of being is heightened. It serves to keep in mind that Jupiter, while often acting as the Guardian Angel in our lives who swoops in to save the day, can also expand whatever difficulty or negativity may be residing within our holistic domain. Therefore, remain ever so mindful of thoughts, words and actions. Through it all, Jupiter’s qualities of energy, faith, strength and optimism shine forth.
Libra The Scales is a cardinal air sign ruled by Venus. Libra’s presence personifies the archetypes of The Lover, The Artist and the Peacemaker. Libra emanates the essence of love, peace, artistry, partnership, balance, etiquette, aesthetics, cooperation and harmony. The realm of Libra includes significant one-to-one relationships. Partnership comes in many forms, does it not? Whether it is our life partner, lover, friend, colleague, client, parent or sibling, each is a relationship of unique expression. In facing the self, we serve the other. In facing each other, we serve the soul.
Any lunar cycle is not essentially the pure expression of it’s sign, and yet, the sign figures prominently and prolifically in the current planetary climate. At this time, The Full Moon is coupled with a powerful and turbulent double T-Square involving the Sun, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. As all of these conditions are combined with the Mercury Retrograde cycle, we are being pushed to our limits. Sometimes, it takes intense friction in order for us to find a deeper, greater and more meaningful awareness of ourselves and each other. We only needed an igniter. These are times of unstoppable ignition. In the midst of it all, we are blessed with the peaceful, balanced and loving nature of Libra to see us through.
There is a beautiful Native American saying:
“Don’t judge any man until you have walked two moons in his moccasins.”
All of our moccasins are a bit worn and tattered. Some of them barely have soles. Try to remember this in these most beautiful yet challenging of times. In that moment, when we come face to face with another, no matter who they are, look at their shoes.
In that very moment, when we come face to face, all we have is each other.
Libra Full Moon Blessings Upon You.
THE GUEST HOUSE
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
for some new delight.
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
as a guide from beyond.
