Libra Full Moon
March 20, 2019
00 Libra 09
Spring arrives 6:59pm EDT then three hours later the Full Moon arrives at less than one half degree of Libra. The excitement of spring will be felt by us individually (Aries) and our partners (Libra) as soon as the new season launches.
We are, of course, half way through the Pisces lunar twenty-nine day cycle where the emphasis is on letting go, tying up loose ends, healing those things we have no control of including memories and regrets. For those who are feeling a little “off” and perhaps self -confidence is flagging, the move by the Sun into Aries (starting the first day of spring) and the full moon will lift our mood. We may not be ready to go full on with a new project or tackle some problem but we will feel like all is not lost and we get some balance for the three-day full moon.
What is interesting is that this year we have a gift --there will be two Libra Full moons! We are getting two rounds of finding balance and adjustments and checking in with our partners and relationships. The timing is most auspicious due to fact that Treasure Maps is sandwiched between both full moons.
On April 5 the Aries New Moon begins the New Lunar Year. During that time those of us who know the power of that new moon will set aside precious time and make our personal treasure maps. Treasure Maps are a collage or a vision board of the things we want in our lives and things we want to accomplish during the new year. A ‘mindful diet’ “Strong health” ‘ Trip to Paris’ “New back porch’ “healthy relationships’ ‘new car’ “new job’ ‘marriage’ it can be anything that speaks to you after the Aries New Moon launches (April 5 4:30am EDT). We have a few days to make that map and for those of us who have been doing them for a long time (waving my hand-- 23 years!) we know that the maps are powerful and will manifest during the year, (some years more than others) but many will experience manifestations by summer. The two full moons will be bringing us information that will support what we want in our maps and the year and remind us the importance of our relationships and finding balance. This is a gift indeed!
In the chart of this full moon we have a pronounced Chiron which puts emphasis on personal identity, showing the world who we are, going our own way, finding our inner warrior and showing up for self in a new manner. Given it is Chiron there is some lesson around independence and doing our own thing that is uncomfortable. We must fight through the uncomfortable and just do it. Luckily the Libra full moon reminds us we are never alone. The work may be ours to do but there are people cheering us on, offering advice and reminding us of our strength. This full moon could show you that there are people supporting you whom you might not even know --a perfect stranger may give you a little ‘boost’. Then when we get to the second Libra Full moon we will have the planet Uranus influencing us and that is much different from Chiron. Expect surprises then.
Libra’s ruling planet Venus squares off with Mars on the 3/21 so there could be sparks. Values that are noble could be at odds with practical actions. Luckily Libra moon can remind Venus to take a breath and ‘this too will pass’ . And of course the real reward of this Libra Full moon is the power of finding your balance in the face of anything –that is a gift!
