April’s Full Moon in Libra
Tuesday April 7th / Wednesday April 8th, 2020
About this Full Moon…
This April, we have a full moon in Libra, ruled by the planet Venus. The sign of the scales, Libra is all about creating balance, harmony, and peace, with an emphasis on personal relationships. As a result, you will feel a little bit more focused on creating tranquility, beauty, and harmony all around you.
Libra doesn’t just appreciate balance -- Libra also seeks out imbalance and fixes it. So, it’s no surprise that this full moon shines a light on any imbalances or injustices that need to be addressed. You find yourself wanting to play peacemaker during this transit.
Strong emotions can get stirred up—but with Libra’s emphasis on people-pleasing, we may be scared to make any waves, wanting to keep things ‘nice’ rather than rocking the boat.
That being said, it’s important to share your feelings and speak your truth. Because Libra’s natural skills are diplomacy and negotiation, the moon in Libra gives you the ability to use charm and tact to get what you want.
Don’t be afraid to show who you really are.
Our connection to others and relationships are always at the forefront during a full moon, but it is even more noticeable during the full moon in Libra. Because you’ll have a heightened awareness of your emotions, you’ll have incredible clarity about any inequity in your partnerships. Reflect on your relationships and which ones may be out of balance.
Remember though, balance is also about compromise. With this full moon in the sign of relationships, we’re asked to balance other people’s feelings, wants, and needs with our own. To find love, to become whole again, we need to let go of our ego…we need to be open to understanding others’ perspectives.
Libra is not only about our ability to notice how others are different. Libra also shows us what we project onto other people, and how we can understand ourselves better, through others.
This full moon is a chance to find your footing and enter the next few weeks on more solid ground. Full moons have a way of illuminating the truth, so if you’ve been seeking the solution to a problem, this time should help you see the truth.
Questions to ask yourself during this full moon:
What is asking to be released to bring more harmony into your life?
What activities or practices can you being into your daily life to create more balance?
