This Full Moon takes place on April 19, 2019, Good Friday, at 11.12 GMT in Libra at 29° 06′, following another the Full Moon in Libra on 21 March 2019.
So this year the Full Moon takes place two times in Libra, insisting on the same themes, in two very iconic days (Spring Equinox and Good Friday). Easter traditionally takes place the Sunday after the first Full Moon following the Spring Equinox. This year the Full Moon took place on March 21, 2019 at 1:42, about 4 hours after the Spring Equinox on March 20, 2019 at 21:58. The Church has opted to celebrate Easter after the second Full Moon. With the benefit of hindsight, one might almost dare to think that the disaster of Notre Dame could be due to this negligence, but I’d rather let that go and return to the themes of the Full Moon in Libra.
One theme concerns the conflict between the individual and their relationships, inner and outer, the relationship with a partner in the outer world and the relationship with oneself or one’s shadow in the inner realm.
When we see this conflict and the related grievances as an anomaly it is inevitable that when it occurs, we see it has something that should not be there, an accident, something that happened due to your mistake or someone else’s. This means that it is ultimately about identifying, blaming and even punishing a culprit.
Paradoxically, it is this research and identification of a fault and culprit that causes and amplifies the most painful and lethal features of a conflict.
If we accept that problems, pains, conflicts are inevitable because they are part of the natural traits of this reality, just like a Full Moon, then something radically healing may happen. We no longer focus on denyng, repressing or fighting the problem, but rather on how to respond and adapt to it, how to relate to it. Then a Full Moon, even on Good Friday, can become most beautiful!
In this reality there is spring and autumn, the New Moon (when Sun and Moon are united) and the Full Moon (when they are at maximum distance from each other). It is part of the nature of this reality. Similarly, there are pleasant and unpleasant emotions and thoughts that bring benefits or serious damage, there is life and death, health and illness. There are times when you feel happy, harmonious, loving with yourself or someone and other times where you are depressed, angry, hateful to yourself or someone. This has always happened. It is part of the nature of this reality.
You can believe it is a problem to be eliminated or to stay away from and then spend your whole life fighting it or avoiding it. Or you can accept it as natural and choose to respond to it, to relate to it.
In this reality the sign that your relationships work well is given by your ability to manage conflicts, misunderstandings, pains, anger, darkness, tensions as well as joy, love, pleasure. Relationship is about creating a relationship between two or more parties, accepting that circumstances can change.
We live in a reality founded on dualism, light and dark, life and death. The most stupid and destructive thing we can do is probably to blame someone, including ourselves, for this dualism. Another option is simply to accept all this and find ways to live peacefully in this situation, also exploring other options and even other realities.
Happy Full Moon and Easter
