ABOUT FULL MOONS
Every month the Moon reaches its fuller phase when it makes an exact opposition with the Sun, representing the peak of the lunar cycle, when emotions are heightened and the subconscious rises to our conscious awareness. Further, it’s a time of illumination and harvesting, for it’s when we see the results of the intentions we set six months ago with the New Moon of its same zodiac sign. This makes it perfect to celebrate if you see the blooms of the seeds you planted and/or an opportunity for reflection and gaining emotional clarity on a situation.
CULMINATION OF A SIX MONTH LUNAR CYCLE
The Full Moon will occur at 8 degrees Libra, an air and cardinal sign ruled by Venus, the goddess of love. This lunar event will culminate an emotional cycle that began on October 16th 2020 with the New Moon of the same sign that happened right opposite Mars and Black Moon Lilith in Aries. Since in every new lunar cycle a seed is planted and the new is promised, but yet to materialize, it’s with the lunar climax that we can see everything manifest to form. For instance, this New Moon of the past equinox highlighted that suppressed rage will be brought to light through the course of its six months cycle.
Every lunation in Libra brings our relationships to our emotional focus, and as this one opposed the dark feminine and the god of war, it precisely had to do with the shadow aspects of ourselves that we tend to suppress our dark emotions like jealousy, insecurity, anger; the desires we deny ourselves to meet; the feelings we tend to keep to ourselves in order preserve our ego or to avoid conflict, only to instead create a war within.
FULL MOON IN LIBRA
Thus, this Full Moon in Libra, happening this time right opposite the goddess of love Venus, and the wounded healer, Chiron in the sign of Mars, asks for you to let your inner fire escape in order to heal and purify your deepest wounds. Thus, to empower yourself and finally close a cycle of emotional suppression and of avoidance of conflict that leads to passive aggressiveness, to open yourself up and/or to finally release the chaos within so that peace and harmony is restored in your heart and in your relationships. Therefore the underlying message is that the calm will come after the storm; the peace after war. This is reinforced with Venus’s shift from Morning Star (where she has the qualities of the warrior goddess) to Evening Star on March 26th (where she has the qualities of a lover goddess).
THE ARIES & LIBRA POLARITY
With this lunar transit, there is an internal and/or external battle that’s being resolved and this Full Moon will be representing the culmination of its negative cycle. Additionally, because of the exact opposition between the Moon and Chiron, it will be illuminating the unhealed wounds of the ego and the root cause of conflict. These wounds may be reflected through the other like the light the Moon reflects from the Sun. Further, the Aries and Libra axis tells us that relationships serve as mirrors as they often reflect back to us our own sense of self worth, our self esteem, what we should heal and lastly who we are, for we can’t fully know ourselves without learning who we are with the other. Therefore, this lunar event is also about cultivating self love and taking back our power by deciding what we will continue to allow.
For instance, the Full Moon of Aries Season, the first zodiacal month in which we are called to focus on ourselves and our objectives, brings the balance of the polarity by putting our emotional focus to our relationships for the purpose of deepening self awareness and personal growth. The key message is that for finding fair solutions, resolving conflict, finding harmony and healing from the root, is to go through the fire of your inner underworld and bring out those suppressed and shadowy emotions to light in order for them to be healed by the purifying flames as they burn. This is represented with Venus’s conjunction with the Sun as it symbolizes her descent to the underworld like the myth of Innana.
THE SUN AND VENUS SUPERIOR CONJUNCTION
On March 26th, the Sun & Venus perfected their conjunction at 5 degrees Aries, and Venus made her shift from Morning to Evening Star. This aspect is known as a Superior Conjunction which happens when Venus is moving in direct motion and is at the far side of the Sun. Therefore, being analogous to a Full Moon, it’s a time of culmination, blossoming, illumination and harvesting when it comes to venusian matters; desires are illuminated as we reach a new level of understanding and we’re called to connect in a deeper manner with others. Further, with Venus preparing to appear in the night sky, it’s also a time of releasing and letting go of what no longer aligns with our soul desires and for healing.
Thus, as this almost coincided with the Full Moon in Libra, which is ruled by Venus, it triple intensifies the love and romance characteristics of this lunation. Further, since the lunar climax brings something to a culmination, it reinforces also that it’s about closing cycles in matters of the heart and relationships. However, since Venus is in Aries it comes with a call to action, to begin asserting ourselves in what we want and don’t want, and taking the initiative in order to meet our illuminated desires. Additionally, the fire element makes it perfect to direct towards creative endeavors and for leveraging the motivation it ignites to start something new and embark on a new journey.
FULL MOON LIBRA OPPOSITE SUN, VENUS AND CHIRON
Further, as Chiron will be exactly conjunct the Sun and Venus, meaning that it will be also at the 8th degree, it highlights that the wounds of our ego will also be revealed, making this Full Moon highly emotional, especially after the Last Quarter in Cancer of March 21st that began to uncover them so that they’re released or healed with the Full Moon. This may be a time when all of the suppressed emotions can no longer be contained and so the fire element of the Sun, Venus and Chiron in Aries may impulse us to express and liberate them.
However, as our wounds and insecurities may surface, we may also feel fearful to take action, to express our vulnerabilities if it’s “damaging” to the ego and avoid conflict altogether, however, that may all create a ticking time bomb. Thus, this lunar event is an opportunity to reclaim our power, confront our fear of conflict and to express ourselves, to voice our desires and/or our anger. Thus, this Full Moon might be highly liberating as we free the chaos within and harmony and balance is restored in our lives and in our relationships.
GRAND AIR TRINE: FULL MOON TRINE SATURN & MARS
The Full Moon will also be in a harmonious alignment with Saturn and Mars, two planets that will also be trining each other, creating a grand air trine. The air element represents communication, logic, rationality and movement. Thus, highlighting that we may be able perceive and understand our emotions objectively and consciously as well as express them in an effective manner. Mars is ruling over the Sun, Venus and Chiron in Aries and its positive aspect with the Full Moon indicates that we might feel the impulse to take action on resolving conflict and finding solutions as well as taking action on our wants and our emotions in order to meet our needs. Further, its trine with Saturn is excellent as it talks about taking practical action.
THE TWO WEEKS INFLUENCE OF THE FULL MOON
For instance, this lunar event will bring the needed clarity in order to make decisions. However all will not happen in just one day, as we have two weeks of this influence until the New Moon in Aries. This new lunar cycle will initiate with a stellium in Aries making it the perfect time to begin following new objectives and taking action on our goals. We will also be welcoming a new beginning as we released with this Full Moon in Libra a cycle of suppression and avoidance of conflict to initiate one of authentic expression and honoring one’s raging emotions to transmute them into radical self love and acceptance. Your relationships with others will then mirror what you allow and what you don’t and thus, your sense of self worth.
