The Libra Full Moon is exact on Monday, April 10th at 11:08pm PT, bringing the tension between Self and Other to a peak, and kicking off Sunday's Mercury retrograde station with a dramatic bang. The Moon Guides are live with sign-by-sign guidance into ways to work with this energy. Read on for more details!
The Sun in Aries, sign of the self, opposing the Moon in Libra, sign of partnerships and relating, grants us an opportunity to release those habits, routines, relationships and vices that jerk us out of our innate sense of balance.
The Sun is closely conjunct the generation defining Uranus-Eris conjunction, an aspect exacting an electrifying influence on identity and personal power. Eris is a chaotic, disruptive energy; Uranus is an awakening, activating, shocking — and is also associated with new technologies. With their conjunction occurring in Aries, they tell a story of breakthroughs and breakdowns, fragmentations and re-alignments in how we define ourselves — and how that rapid identity evolution plays our across digital media.
This is an ongoing alignment active throughout the year (and will become super-activated again in just a couple weeks as Mercury meets up with this aspect for 2+ weeks during its current retrograde) so you won't find any mend-all solutions during the Libra Full Moon; but you may find some key elements necessary to accessing the larger whole of who you're becoming.
This energy requires grace. It requires artfulness. And it requires humility. But there's also a component here about standing your ground in your convictions — particularly those you feel most passionately about.
What are you willing to fight for? What are you willing to risk violating social norms to achieve, defend, or bring into the world? The time has come to decide — and to use that decisiveness as panacea against the chaos of a world in the midst of a monumental identity crisis.
So how best to use the energy of the Libra Full Moon?
Own what's yours.
Release everything that's not.
There's tremendous power in self-knowledge, even if you don't have the whole thing figured out yet. If we remain faithful to what we know, deep within, to be true — about ourselves, not about what other people can or should do or be — those fragments can lead us down a whole new path of discovery and opening, relationships and insight.
Let the shocks and sudden insights promised over the next three weeks blossom in a space of calm and dignity. At this moment, the purpose of shock is simple: to initiate us into more complete manifestations of our truest selves. The only safety we possess in the moment? The choice to say yes. To affirm our experiences. The choice to flow into and through it and trust that what's coming up is moving you into closer alignment with your right environment. Your right relationships. Your right life.
