LIBRA FULL MOON - 7/8 April 2020

Exact at 3.35am GMT (Tues 7 April in America)

This is an incredibly powerful Full Moon, as not only does it involve some potent planetary energy, but it is also a Supermoon. Full Moons often bring out anything that may have been simmering beneath the surface and tend to play out within our relationships, bringing any underlying issues to a head. And as this Full Moon is in the sign of relationships, this is very much emphasised! We have the Moon in Libra, the sign of peace, balance and harmony opposite the Sun in Aries, the sign of war, assertion and courage, and the key is to find some kind of balance between the two. Supermoons involve an alignment between the Sun, Moon and Earth and have a more powerful effect on our mind, body, emotions and spirit than your average Full Moon. They have the potential to bring something to light that can have a profound effect on our lives, ushering in a new phase of growth. It is no surprise that this particular Moon is a Supermoon, as there is a lot going on in this cosmos of ours at the moment!  Not to mention that our relationships have been seriously tested in the past couple of weeks, since the New Moon.

Venus, the ruler of Libra, is currently in Gemini, the sign of communication and learning. There is a sense, while the planet of relationships is in this curious and versatile sign, that we will be passing a lot of information around between one other in the coming month. This Moon could involve quite a lot of conversations that could further our knowledge and help us feel more informed. Indeed, this is a good time to arm ourselves with as much information as possible. Thoughts, ideas, opinions and information could spread like wildfire as we pass on whatever we know to our loved ones, like a butterfly flitting from flower to flower spreading pollen. There is, of course, the danger of misinformation, so it is important to check and double check whatever we hear, doing our own research if necessary. Our relationships are definitely the focus of this Moon and, as many in the world at the moment are not able to physically see one another, our conversations are more important than they might usually be as they are all we have. It is no coincidence that Venus is in Gemini right now!

Venus is forming a lovely trine aspect to Mars, the ruler of the Aries Sun, which is very helpful for our relationships during this Full Moon. It allows for a nice flow of receptivity and the capacity to really listen to one another’s needs, combined with the Martian ability to assert our individuality and take care of our own needs. Mars, the planet of war, anger, assertion and courage is currently in eccentric, visionary Aquarius, the sign of liberty, equality, rebellion and freedom. With the trine aspect between the two planets, there is the potential for people communicating a lot and spreading a considerable amount of information between one another which could bring out the more rebellious side of people’s nature. Mars in Aquarius can cause people to fight for their liberty and human rights. It could give us the courage to protest, to stand up for humanitarian causes, to rebel, to revolt. It can bring up anger about the Aquarian issues of liberty, equality and our rights as human beings. Venus and Mars are literally going to be dancing with one another until the beginning of May.

In the meantime, we are currently building up to a challenging “square off” between Uranus and Mars that will peak on Tuesday 7 April but will still be very strong during this Full Moon. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, so this magnifies the energy of Mars in Aquarius, making it more acute. Uranus is the Great Awakener and it is possible that we could have some shocking realisations or epiphanies that wake us up and make us angry. There is the potential for some kind of sudden act of Martian force that comes from left field, taking us by surprise. We could experience sudden outbursts of anger or even acts of war that shock us to our core. It is quite possible that we may be forced to find the courage to stand up for our rights and fight for our liberty. And with Mars in Aquarius, the sign of technology and the internet, the fight might be virtual.  

Saturn is now in Aquarius as well, where he will be until July 1, when he goes back into Capricorn for a bit, and then again from 17 December until 7 March 2023. Saturn is the planet of authority, reality, limitation, control and responsibility. Aquarius is the sign of liberty, equality, technology, internet and our capacity to stand up for our rights and freedom. Saturn has the potential to shine the harsh light of reality on all things Aquarius, as we experience a curbing and limitation of our freedom, of our right to protest, of our human rights in general. As many are confined to their homes around the world, virtual reality is now more prevalent than ever before, through necessity. However, computers, technology and the internet can also be used for Saturnian control by those in power, as we are seeing in the use of drones to keep people in check during lockdown and apps to track people with the “virus”. We are also beginning to see the “reality” of what 5G really means, as it is being rolled out all over the globe as we speak, causing the birds to literally fall from the sky.

Aquarius is the innovative part of us that can, and has already, come up with some amazing technology that can help the world become a better, cleaner, cheaper, purer place to live. With Saturn in Aquarius is quite possible that we will become more aware of how this technology has been suppressed and repressed in the name of power, greed and control.The veils of illusion will be lifted! Saturn could now be calling for us to be accountable and to step up to the plate in the name of liberty, equality and humanity. We are called to become more responsible for creating a new world, a new vision of how the world could be. Aquarius is the visionary, and so we are being asked to help restructure our world in a way that is more fair, equal and far, far away from the current status quo. As the societal structures crumble, we are asked to take responsibility for creating a new world, the like of which we have never seen before. And this will involve stepping outside of the box and being open to new ways of operating.

Jupiter and Pluto are joining forces in Capricorn and the conjunction will be exact on 4/5April. This conjunction is forming a challenging square to the Sun and Moon during this Full Moon, so the energy will still be strong and could have a powerful effect on our emotions and relationships. This conjunction can take many forms. It brings the potential for powerful feelings of fear, panic and even paranoia to spread through the collective. We can find ourselves bombarded with so many versions of the “truth” that it is hard to know what is real. It can bring about blatant abuse of power and an escalation of fear-based control. We are asked to listen to our gut and to trust our inner guidance system and intuition: that part of us that knows what we know without knowing quite why we know it. Jupiter and Pluto together help us to dig beneath the surface in order to find the truth, although what we find might not be pretty. We know the truth, deep inside, although we might not want to admit it to ourselves.

With Pluto in Capricorn we are experiencing a death/rebirth of the structure of society and in the meantime are watching the structure of our own lives crumbling. There is the potential for an enormous amount of soul growth during this time, not to mention a radical change of values and what once held meaning to us is stripped away. Life is not going to be the same again, so it is up to us to choose how we move on from here. For many this has been a dark night of the soul, as we have been forced to face ourselves in ways that we have not had to before. Jupiter and Pluto bring the potential for profound soul growth and metamorphosis. While fear may be rife, Jupiter asks us to keep the faith. With Mercury in Pisces our imaginations could be running wild in all sorts of crazy directions, but it is so important to strengthen our faith and to nurture the sense of unity that is so strong at the moment. Fear closes the heart, causing feelings of separation that can make people turn on each other. The power of faith, and joining in unison through prayer, mantra, singing and meditation can strengthen spirit and keep the darkness at bay.

With Neptune in Pisces there is the potential for a beautiful and profound shift in consciousness. As people turn within and connect to spirit, we have a more tangible sense of how we are all connected. Now, more than ever, our compassion and empathy are ignited and we are being so very kind to each other. These are the qualities to be nurtured and strengthened during this time. The light in us all is shining brighter and brighter, collectively, which is why the shadows are so very dark right now. We must do all we can to strengthen our spirit and raise our frequency and vibration, through spiritual practice, diet and heartfelt connection with each other. Not to mention following our bliss and engaging in activities that bring us feelings of peace and joy. Gratitude practices and visualising the world we would like to live in could be so very powerful right now. Anything we can do to keep our hearts open. We are not alone. We are all in this together, and this has never been more apparent than now.

The Sabian symbol for the Moon, at 19° Libra, is: “ A gang of robbers in hiding”, which Dane Rudyar describes as “Protest against disharmonic social privilege. One might think of Robin Hood and his band, or early Bolsheviks in Russia, robbing banks to finance the revolution. The protest against an unbalanced society with its rigid stratification into classes can be seen as a positive factor, even if it challenges the principle of order, for it reveals dynamic qualities in individuals and the will to transformation. In another sense, it is the dark shadow of the ideal of “nonpossessiveness.” The question is: How valid and effectual is this kind of protest? Perhaps the fact that any effective resistance to the momentum of crystallised intuitions should be organised if it is to be effective. Individuals alone are impotent in producing actual changes in social consciousness. A “group” must be formed. The Keywords are GROUP PROTEST.”

This symbol is very interesting indeed in the light of the Martian, Aquarian and Uranian energy of this Full Moon! It hints, and not in a subtle way at all, at the power of the group to make social change. There is a sense of certain truths coming to light during this moon that could incite and ignite our righteous anger and give us the courage to act on it. With world meditations and chanting occurring all over the weekend there is a sense of unity and coming together in prayer to bring about a shift in consciousness and the potential for creating profound change on a subtle level. We must never underestimate the power of the collective. And now, more than ever before, we must strengthen our faith and harness the power of love. John Lennon was a Libran:

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us, only sky
Imagine all the people
Livin' for today
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Livin' life in peace
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

So much love
