Full Moon in Libra

FullmoonfireaThis Full Moon takes place on 11 April 2017, at 6:08 GMT. The Moon is in Libra at 21° 33′ and the Sun is in Aries at the same degree.

This time presents opportunities for challenging and harmonising apparently antagonistic forces, as well as embracing the power generated by pure love and passion. Here whatever abounds with energy, also and especially when it is perceived as anger or any intense emotion, indicates the presence of love and passion.

Hence the invitation is to be aware of what you are truly passionate about and find ways in which you can express that passion in a healing way and definitely through non-violent expressions.

A Full Moon in Libra is an opportunity for disengaging from the conventional scripts that rule our lives, tapping into what we truly are at a much deeper level.

Most human beings spend their whole life trying to fit into social roles. These roles are mainly part of a consensus reality based on separation and conflict, constantly downloaded and updated mainly through the media and social interaction.

What we believe to be our individuality is in most cases the mere repetition of scripts played throughout ages and by huge amounts of people.

The Full Moon is about giving expression to whatever vital and authentic within you has not been dealt with. The combination Aries and Libra challenges to reach a balance between your spontaneous and genuine desires, the way your energy would naturally move, and our connection with others and the environment, our dependency issues as well as our need for relationships.

A question you can ask yourself here is:

“Am I being truly myself or am I just trying to fit into a social model? Am I just imitating what I should be in accordance with my social environment, culture, conditioning, or am I being myself? And what does it mean to be myself?

Whatever the answer to this question is, what counts is the fact of being aware of what is happening. If it is your conscious choice to fully interpret a specific role, no matter whether it is a conditioning or not, this provides power, because you are aware of it and choose to do so. Choice is power, which means that when you are tired of playing a certain role, you can drop it and play another.

The Full Moon is the apex of the New Moon in Aries on 28 March 2017. The degree of the New Moon, or Lunation point (7° Aries 37’) indicated an area of life that would operate as Intent and driving force during the cycle, reaching the apex at the Full Moon and in the related zone (21° Libra 33′).

At New Moon, both the Sun and the Moon are conjunct. Hence, they are in a condition to experience their original unity and formulate a common Intent. On a Full Moon whatever was conceived and experienced during the New Moon, calls for direct exposure and accomplishment. Hence, this is the moment when you confront with the practical implications of the New Moon issues. This is the time for Aries manifestation, resolute discrimination and selective action!

This Full Moon represents the maximum level of horizontal magnetism, allowing grievances and blocks to reach a peak, which can either escalate separation or release it. Hence there is a most healing opportunity to liberate deep layers of ancestral conflicts and divisions between polarity, letting them go and moving beyond our limited nature into the reality of our unified self. What is the function of pain and grievances? Their aim is to push us to the limits of who we believe to be so as to unveil who we are beyond.

I wish you a most harmonious, reconciling and courageous Full Moon!
