Libra Full Moon

Libra Full Moon
March 31, 2018
8:36am EDT
10 Libra 44

As always, when Full Moon opportunities are offered it is good to consider the bigger context.   Context number one, sometimes Libra Full moon occurs after the Aries New Moon and the lunar year has launched and sometimes it will precede the new moon.   In this case it is preceding the launch of the New Year.   Context number two, by preceding the lunar year means we are processing the full moon from a Pisces lens.   Context number three, we are in the middle of retrograde Mercury in Aries.   

What does this mean?     It means that even before we go into the astrological details of this full moon chart we know that this moon is important because it is speaking to us through our intuition (Pisces lunar cycle) level.   It is speaking to us in ways that feel different perhaps even unworldly.   Guts and intuition bells will ring along with ‘random’ moments or thoughts.      The value of this intuitive energy is to inform us what we want for the upcoming new year.  With the Mercury retrograde we might be experiencing snafus that speak to the value of S-L-O-W-I-N-G down our thoughts and our communication.   Any hurdles that come up are also informing us what we want in the coming new year via experiences we just don’t want to have happen again.     And in the middle of all this energy we have Libra Full Moon informing us about our relationships and partnerships. 

Astro details:
Libra Full moon is in conjunction with Mercury so again watch any snafus that come up during the three-day full moon.  Are they based on misinformation?  Or based on rushing?  Or knee jerk reactions?   What would be the value in slowing down?     Mars the warrior is in conjunction with stern taskmaster Saturn in Capricorn and both planets are in square with Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra.    How are our relationships supporting smart and strategic movement?  How are we focused on going forward in some manner and our partner is resistant?  Or is our partner pushing movement and we are resistant?   Or how is our partner or relationship disconnected?    Libra is looking for a partner to help with balance.   Libra can respect independence in others but really does not like to be alone.   On this Libra full moon relationships based on real connection and similar values feel different than relationships based on fear of being alone.    Sun in Aries reminds us that being authentic and real strengthens our self- esteem.  What happens in relationships when one partner accesses more self esteem?  See if anything comes up during this full moon and how you need to shift your place in your relationship.  And remember how this full moon may inform you for your new  year (& Treasure Map launch) starting on April 15 9:57pm EDT. 

Happy Full Moon
Happy Easter

Happy Passover

Astrology This Week

This week begins the first quarter moon which launched on Saturday.   Our feelings and emotions are guiding actions.   On Pisces new moon we activated our intuition now our feelings guide actions which support channels to our intuition.   On the 27th we move into Gibbous moon and refine our passion. 

On 3/29 we get our first Sun in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn.   We will have a couple more of these during Saturn’s transit in Capricorn.  It has been a long time since these two tangled it up in Cap & Aries.  The last time was March 23 1988, April 3 1989  & April 16 1990.   Look a those dates and consider what was going on for you.   Where were the frustations and tensions. Sun in Aries is looking for independence and new paths and a way to break out.  Aries is not afraid of a little war to get where it needs to go while Saturn in Capricorn is the first to say…”Put the brakes on!”    A very frustrating aspect for sure but it is important to remember although Saturn delays it does not deny.  So, if something hits a wall—remember it is probably due to the timing being ‘off’.  Go back to the drawing board and come up with another plan.    And remember  Mercury is retrograde so we should be slowing down our thinking anyway. 

And finally on Saturday 3/31 we have the Libra Full Moon (separate post to come) launching both Passover & Easter and the importance of relationships.   

First Quarter Moon
March 24, 2018

Focus on:

How are you refining your passion?  How are you refining your drama?  How are you refining your brash and bold nature?  How are you refining your creativity?  How are you refining your need to tell truth? 

Special focus:
3/28:  Venus conj Uranus:  Annual aspect where values get a change up.  Chaos or brilliance arrives at money and love. 
3/29: Sun sq.  Saturn.  Restrictions, delays around actions and soul searching moments.   Delays are not the same as denial.

This Week in Astrology

Hello Spring! 
Today at 12: 15pm EDT –The Sun move into Aries and we in the Northern Hemisphere officially said goodbye to Winter.  

On Wednesday we move out of the New Phase of Pisces lunar cycle and into Crescent.

On 22nd Mercury turns retrograde.  See separate post.

On 23  Venus gets into it with Pluto.  Watch money, watch issues around money and power and women and beauty.   Oh, Venus you are so charming…but complicated when you get into it with Powerful pluto.

Crescent Moon Phase
March 21, 2018

Focus on: What are you learning about being practical?  What are you learning about taking things bit by bit?  What are you learning about money and love?  What are you learning about the importance being patient?  What are you learning about the benefits and pitfalls of being stubborn?

Special focus:
3/22: Mercury retrograde until April 15.  Mercury goes from 16 Aries 54 to 4 Aries 46. 
3/23: Venus sq Pluto.  Creativity and values are challenged to rebirth.  Rebirth is challenged to align with values.

First Quarter Moon
March 24, 2018 
11:35am  EST

First quarter: We do more actions based on the information that we just received.  Or we feel our instincts guide us on something.  We pursue again.  We make another call or we see someone. We mail something.  We stir the pot again.  This can be a time when we realize that the goals we planted on New need more action from us, perhaps actions that involve breaking away.   Are there people who say they have our best interest in heart but fear us growing away from them?  Maybe we need to get help from others not the usual suspects.  Some independence may need to be exerted.

Focus on:  What actions are you taking that speak to your feelings?  What actions are you taking that speak to your family?  What actions are you taking that speak to your moodiness?  

Special focus
3/24: Sun sq Mars.  Vitality and essence rub against abrupt actions.  

Mercury Retrograde

March 22, 2018
8:18pm EDT
16Aries 54

Mercury stations retrograde at 16/17 Aries.   Mercury in Aries rules fast moving thoughts.  Have you been feeling a bit ADHD?  Blame Mercury in Aries.   The retrograde should help us slow down and if not exactly get quiet which is what Pisces keeps asking us to do all 29 days, perhaps we can slow down enough to not get in trouble—if we are paying attention.  Mercury in Aries can be quick to anger and quick to mouthy.  There is nothing wrong with using our words to start a new path and a new route for independence but we don’t need to start small grass fires whenever we speak.  Luckily the retrograde will help us ‘take a moment’ and stop ramming (it is Aries of course) our thoughts down on everyone.  What is probably most noteworthy about this Mercury retrograde is that about 17 hours after it turns direct we get the Aries New Moon.   THAT is remarkable.  For those of us who do Treasure Maps on Aries New Moon consider how cuckoo it is that we will have three weeks of mental confusion or chaos and then poof it ends and we get Aries New Moon where we launch our new year and map.    Talk about the dawn after a storm.   I would consider this potentially one of the most profound Mercury retrogrades in a very long time.    Use these three weeks that could sometimes seem confusing or mentally challenging as a gift.   Perhaps we need any hurdles to clarify our goals for Aries New Moon.

Hi, folks, I am sorry that I didn't get this up yesterday but I was juggling so much over here and racing that I could not get it up until now.  Happy St. Patricks Day and a much wondeful Pisces New Moon to all! 

You will find the report on Margaret Wendt's website   

Thank you
