Full Moon [8 Libra 18]
– March 28 2021 (19:48 GMT+1)
This weekend’s Full Moon falls in the star sign Libra, cutting across the Aries/Libra axis of the zodiac – me versus you. Notice where the Full Moon falls in your own horoscope and which planets/angles are close to 8 degrees.
Moon Libra – Peace & Harmony
Libra’s zodiac symbol is the Scales. If you were born with the Moon in Libra, you thrive in a peaceful & harmonious environment and appreciate relationships that are in balance. In whatever star sign you find the Moon in your horoscope, this is where your emotional needs are met.
Libra is the sign of the zodiac that is averse to conflict. Yet, when you’re born with the sign of the scales dominant in your birth chart, you invariably have to deal with inequality in your life and you are naturally drawn into relationship issues. Often, it’s a case of trying to balance the scales rather than live in a world of constant equilibrium and harmony.
Full Moon & Relationships
At this Full Moon, consider where balance is needed in your own life. Many of us are currently starting over in some way. This is the ideal time to do so while the Sun is in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac.
You may have to consider other people in your life more than usual during the Full Moon period, especially if you’re at home with family and have extra demands on your time and attention.
Or, perhaps you’re working in a helping or service environment. Here too, try to ensure that the Libra scales are balanced. If not entirely harmonious, at least aim for compromise, equality and fairness.
Close relationships fall under scrutiny at the Full Moon when the Sun in Aries opposes the Moon in Libra. Aries is the sign of the ego, where the Sun can shine bright. Me first, my agenda, not yours.
Libra’s the opposite principle – ‘no please, you go first’, ‘what do you think?’, ‘you decide’. Notice your differences in relationships and try not to make one another wrong.
Relationship issues may flare up during this Full Moon when emotions are heightened. Drama is intensified and impulsive, spontaneous behaviour can cause controversy.
If you’re apart from loved ones, you might find it especially challenging during this Full Moon. Craving love, wanting to be in someone’s arms, needing your loved ones close.
This Full Moon is especially powerful as the Sun and Venus are side by side – they sit together at 8 Aries.
Venus is the planet that rules relating, also women. This is an independent placing for Venus and a symbol of ‘girl power’. In mythology, Venus had many guises, one of which was warrior woman. If you want to read more about this, read here: Venus Aries: Girl Power.
Venus is currently playing a key role during the lunations. At the last New Moon in Pisces on March 13th, Venus was conjunct the Sun. At the next New Moon in Aries on April 12th, Venus is still conjunct the Sun. During this Full Moon cutting across the Aries/Libra axis of the zodiac, the Sun & Venus are tight duo.
This is showing out in the world. On the recent New Moon in Pisces, women came together in London holding a vigil for a young woman who was abducted and murdered on her way home. There were protests in Australia too linked to sexual harassment cases.
And, here in the UK, there’s currently a rush of girls at independent and state schools standing up against sexual violence. Full Moons bring matters to light and are a powerful time to trust your instincts and stand up for what’s right.
n.b. in the image I use above, who holds the power? For me, it’s the woman, the dominant presence in red (Aries’ colour).
Chiron, The Wounded Healer
The asteroid Chiron is also in the mix during the Full Moon, again at 8 Aries. Chiron can represent a wound but also the ability to heal. The power of the Sun, Venus and Chiron in Aries tips the balance away from the Moon in Libra.
The emphasis lies strongly with the Aries triple conjunction – Aries won’t give up without a fight. It’s an ideal time to be strident, bold and courageous.
What Does It Mean For You?
The Aries/Libra axis is about relationships for everyone but these two star signs rule specific areas of your life. This is where balance may currently be required. Notice whether your scales are out of kilter or need realignment. Read both your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign:
- Aries: Personal goals & self care/relationships & one-on-one partnership
- Taurus: Retreat & recuperation/work, service, health & fitness
- Gemini: Friends, groups & networks/self-expression, creativity, children & affairs
- Cancer: Career & vocation, the future/home & family, the past
- Leo: Exploration & learning, seeking meaning/life close to home, neighbours & local community
- Virgo: Other peoples’ money, shared resources, all things taboo & hidden/personal money, possessions & assets, self-worth
- Libra: Relationships & one-on-one partnership/personal goals & self care
- Scorpio: Work, service, health & fitness/retreat & recuperation
- Sagittarius: Self-expression, creativity, children & affairs/friends, groups & networks
- Capricorn: Home & family, the past/career & vocation, the future
- Aquarius: Life close to home, neighbours & local community/ exploration & learning, seeking meaning
- Pisces: Personal money, possessions & assets, self-worth/other peoples’ money, shared resources, all things hidden & taboo
May it be a happy and powerful Full Moon!
