The upcoming Full Moon is the second Blue Moon this year, meaning it’s the second month in which two Full Moons occur. There wasn’t a Full Moon in February, which is sometimes referred to as a Dark Moon. This Blue Moon shines at 10° Libra tomorrow morning, Saturday, March 31, at 6.37am MST.
Full Moons are when the Sun and Moon are furthest from each other in the lunar cycle. This weekend’s Moon in Libra is in opposition to the Sun in Aries. This cycle began with the new Moon in Pisces, which I made a video post about here. So if this monthly cycle is about healing and dreams, this Full Libra Moon puts a spotlight on relationships, sharing, and balance.
The moon fully reflects the sun’s light on a Full Moon, meaning that the subconscious becomes conscious (werewolf metaphors and such). Wherever 10° Libra falls in your chart will show you in what area of your life you will feel it most-but we will see it express itself in this Libra kind of energy.
Venus is the ruler of the sign of Libra, and here is concerned with partnerships in particular. The planet of beauty is also brought to life through artistic expression in this sign, as a means for sharing with and appreciation by others. Like the Scales totem, Venus seeks balance and harmony in Libra. Both within the self, and within the environment.
The 7th astrological House is associated with Libra and partnerships. As opposed to the Aries “I AM,” Libra’s motto is “WE ARE.” It’s the sign of the Other rather than the Self. As a mental-energy air sign, Libra values analysis and communication, constantly balancing the needs of others sometimes above their own.
So what does this mean?
It might seem like the needs or concerns of others take precedence this weekend. People might demand things of us that we weren’t prepared for, especially with how up our own skirts we are during this Mercury Retrograde. The Moon and Mercury will be in direct opposition, which is an aspect of tension through circumstances. I think this Moon invites us to listen rather than speak in order to communicate more effectively-and because this is a Full Moon, there are likely to be many words. People have something to say, and rather than respond thoughtlessly, we are being invited to truly hear what is being said by those around us. This is that one moment of the Mercury Retro where stressing about yourself isn’t the way. Other People have the answers this weekend-and Other People will assist us in this healing, dreamy pattern of the New Moon in Pisces cycle that seems so ethereal. They are talking. Hear the words that are coming out of Their mouth before inserting your own.
The Full Moon in Libra passes through a T-square with Sun/Mercury in Aries and Mars/Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn this weekend, which means things could be quite busy and potentially draining. There might be a lot of stressful things going on, but in this case remembering the energy of Cancer will bring balance-emotion, intuition, and nurturing. Don’t block yourself off from your feelings, let that water flow and you can put out any fires that alight.
We will also be incredibly aware of beauty this weekend. Take it in! Libra loves to share beautiful things, so don’t wait, be the one sharing. The more you let your light shine, people will reflect it back at you. And then they might go do the same for someone else. What you give comes back to you, and this Moon will show you that.
Good times! Know I’m busy af this weekend but I’m surrounded by awesome people, so it should be pretty breezy:)
Hope you have an awesome one!
