April's Full Moon in Libra is the Relationship Reset We All Need
"Me" vs. "We."
The first Full Moon of the astrological new year will challenge us to move out of our comfort zones and drop our bad habits. In the process, we can improve ourselves and our most important relationships.
With the Sun in Aries and the Full Moon in Libra, many of us may be torn between pursuing our desires on the one hand and our obligations to our partners or family members on the other. Issues of fairness, equality, and reciprocity may arise.
Pluto, the planet of profound transformation, plays a significant part in this Full Moon which can only mean one thing...things will be intense.
Let's take a deep dive into this Libra Full Moon.
Astrologically speaking, Full Moons are when the Sun and Moon are in opposition, meaning they are at opposite ends of the sky.
When this happens, the energies of both luminaries create a situation of extremes. Think of a see-saw; when one side is up, the other is down. The Sun represents our ego and conscious mind, and the Moon represents our emotions and subconscious. During a Full Moon, our thoughts and emotions are at opposite ends of the spectrum, and we become aware of the imbalances in our lives.
The Full Moon signifies the climax in the lunar cycle; it's a time when seeds bear fruit and manifestations come to fruition. Things become illuminated, and we're allowed to balance the scales.
Full Moon in Libra
The Sun and Moon will be in opposition at 26° Aries and 26° Libra, respectively.
Our consciousness is focused on creating new things boldly and dynamically with the Sun in Aries. The Full Moon will draw our attention to our emotions concerning our most important relationships.
We must find a healthy balance between taking action on our desires and being emotionally fulfilled in our relationships.
Sun and Moon Square to Pluto Makes Things Intense
Both the Sun and Moon will square Pluto in Capricorn, making things intense and emotional.
Pluto is the planet of death, rebirth, and transformation. Coupled with the Full Moon's energy itself, Pluto will require us to take a hard look at ourselves on a substantive level. We'll be urged to get rid of unnecessary emotional baggage and bad habits that are preventing us from having healthy relationships.
The key point here is that if we want to experience changes for the better in our relationships, we need to change ourselves first.
Full Moon for the Signs
Your partnerships and commitments will become illuminated under the light of this Full Moon. Have you been giving your partner enough attention, energy, and passion, or have you been consumed with your own needs, wants, and desires? Changes at work could set the wheels in motion for transforming yourself and your most valued relationships.
Work and health matters will come into focus. Have you been serving everyone but yourself and, in the process, putting your emotional, spiritual, and physical health on the backburner? It's time to look at where you've been spending your energy. A change in perspective or a renewal of faith may allow you to see things from a different and healthier perspective.
This Full Moon will highlight that perhaps you've been all work and no play. It's time to give your inner child the attention that they need. It's ok to express yourself and have a little fun. For some, it may be a time to take a step back from friendships and associations, as intimate partnerships may take precedence. Follow your heart; it won't steer you wrong.
You may feel caught in a tug of war between work and home. Has your desire to build an empire or climb the corporate ladder caused a void at home and with family? Your obligations and commitments to work and family may reach the boiling point. Perhaps it's time to spend some quality time with those you love. Finding a healthy balance between the two, both internally and externally, will be the key to success.
This Full Moon may find you busy as a bee with business, communications, and socializing. Overlooked details may be uncovered, so keep your eyes open and pay attention. What you know versus what you believe may be called into question, especially concerning a work matter. Travel may be required, but obligations close to home may conflict. All you can do is your best, and that's good enough.
Money matters will become illuminated under the light of this Full Moon. Additionally, your value system and how you view yourself may conflict with what others believe and say about you. Don't be afraid to be your authentic self; it will do wonders for your self-esteem and bottom line. Standing on your own two feet may be challenging but definitely worth it.
This Full Moon is all about you! Have you been overly consumed with your partner and their needs such that you've been neglecting your own? It's time to shift the focus back to you and remember what you love, need, and want out of life. Things at home or deeply seated emotional wounds may come up; do your best to process them and discard what you don't need. In doing so, everyone wins.
Rest, relaxation and solitude are in order this Full Moon. Have you been running yourself ragged doing everything for everyone? If so, the time has come to rest and recharge your batteries; no ifs, ands, or buts about it! A hiccup in your daily routine may give you the opportunity for some downtime. Your emotional and physical well-being need to be a priority, so make them!
Friends, associations, goals, and ambitions will be illuminated on this Full Moon. Perhaps you've been so focused on being creative and in your own world that you've forgotten why you're doing what you're doing. A change in income may give you a harsh reminder. This Full Moon will help you get back on track, provided you make the necessary changes.
Your career and public life are in the spotlight on this Full Moon. Being emotionally invested in your vocation and life's purpose may have come at the cost of family and home. Any imbalances in this area will be revealed. Profound changes in your attitude or outlook on life may provide equilibrium in these sectors of your life. Much can be gained by doing the emotional work.
Allow your mind to wander and experience a new adventure this Full Moon. Your focus has been on your daily activities, emails, texts, and things going on around you. It's time to venture into new territory and experience the world. A spiritual awakening may be the catalyst to this shift; whatever happens, be open and receptive to it.
Intimacy and shared resources come into the spotlight this Full Moon. Asking for help, and dealing with the emotions associated with that, may be necessary. While being independent and achieving things on your own is great, sometimes we go farther together than alone. A conflict with a friend may set the wheels in motion for development in this area.
