Tonight’s Full Moon in Libra shines a light on our partnerships, romantic and otherwise. This is a time when we may experience the culmination of an energy cycle within a one on one relationship, whether in regards to an intention we deliberately set, or just within the natural rhythmic ebb and flow which affects every part of our existence on an ongoing basis, and is always connected to the various cycles and phases of the moon.
The Libra Moon stands in the sky opposite the Sun and Venus together in Aries and we are challenged to consider our own needs and desires (Aries) versus the needs and desires of the partnership, finding a balance (Libra) in which what’s good for “me” is also good for “us”.
Be on the lookout for reaching a mutually beneficial compromise where everyone’s a winner. If you’re not there yet, you may find yourself almost at breaking point in a tug of war of some kind, either internally or with another party. With Mercury still in Pisces and Mars in Gemini, assert yourself firmly but gently in any negotiations to make sure you don’t overly compromise yourself.
Regardless of any struggles of this nature, the Moon in her Libra time of the month is reaching for maximum harmony all around. Supported by the 120 degree angle known as a trine to structure inducing Saturn, it’s a great time for the setting of diplomatic boundaries. The Moon is also forming a trine with Mars and her North Node in Gemini. These trines, forming a triangle in the sky between the planets and point involved, mean that the zodiacal aspects between Moon, Saturn and Mars and the North Node can be interpreted to mean that this Full Moon in Libra is a fine time for initiating communications which will lead to personal growth and bring peaceful resolve for the greater good. (Of course, that’s just one interpretation).
To acknowledge the Moon individually at this time, consider themes associated with Libra, an air sign. Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, in particular the non material forms of these ideas. A disembodied air of elegance springs to mind, the perfume of a fading garden in October. These kinds of ethereal qualities are Libra’s super powers with which the eternal goal of equilibrium is perpetually and necessarily won. The word equilibrium itself contains the word Libra.
So on this Full Moon celebration, enjoy the light, enjoy these ideas and feed your head something delicious. Share it with a friend, even if that friend is you.
