April 10, 2017: Libra Full Moon
The Libra Full Moon calls upon us to integrate our desires with those of the people with whom we are in relationship. It can help us gain insight into whether our approach to accommodating our needs and those of others is a balanced one or whether the scale is tipped to one side. (For example, do we over accommodate others to the detriment of own needs, or vice versa?) Additionally, it’s an opportunity to inventory whether we are being our true selves when relating to others rather than being the person we think they want us to be.
Different people draw out distinct parts of who we are. With some people, we may find ourselves more connected to our humorous side, others our serious nature, and with others our adventurous disposition, et al. Use the Full Moon energies to get a sense of which aspects of yourself are brought to light when interacting with different friends, family members, and colleagues, as well as your romantic partner(s).
Think to what you want to give birth to, what parts of yourself and your life you want to blossom. The Libra Full Moon may give you opportunities to see how other people may be able to help you to forge just what it is that you want to pioneer.
The awareness gained, and/or the path to it, may reflect the need to go below the surface and to inquisitively look at that towards which we often cast a blind eye. That is what may hold the key to realizing what is truly fair—not just fair on the surface but fair on an even deeper level.
Mercury began its retrograde cycle April 9, the day before this Full Moon, and with that during this time we may find communication, travel, and idea generation highlighted. If you feel a flush of mental activity and thoughts streaming in, honor and collect them. Remember that Mercury Retrograde periods give us a powerful opportunity for connecting to insights that we may have skipped over previously. The strategy in discovering them is to go slow, honor the quiet and moments of pause, and retrace your steps by going back over recent conversations, communications, and ideas related to how to forge and deliver a message.
This month’s Full Moon falls at 22 degrees of Aries (Sun) and Libra (Moon). While everyone experiences the energies of a Full Moon, if you have planets or pivotal points (i.e., Ascendant/Descendant or Nadir/Midheaven) around this degree in Aries, Libra, or the other cardinal signs—Cancer and Capricorn—it may impact you more intensely.
LIBRA FULL MOON APOTHECARY SUGGESTIONS
Aries is associated with the head, muscles, and circulatory system while Libra is associated with the skin, lower back, kidneys, and blood sugar balance. Pay extra attention to these parts of the body and areas of health around the time of this Full Moon.
Cerato flower essence: During this time, we could find ourselves called to get an opinion from this person and that one. While there is benefit in seeking out alternative perspectives, sometimes it can lead to greater confusion. Also, sometimes we may seek advice from others because we don’t necessarily trust ourselves, feeling unable to connect to our authentic sense of inner knowing. If you are looking for a natural remedy that can help inspire your confidence that intuitive knowingness truly resides within you, consider Cerato flower essence. (Flower essences are made from flower-infused water and work energetically to restore emotional and mental balance. You can find them in natural food stores or holistic pharmacies.)
Exercise with a friend: Looking for an additional spark of motivation to help your spring get-in-shape resolution get underway? Instead of going solo to that yoga class or taking a walk alone in the park, invite a friend. Not only will the exercise pump your blood, work your muscles, and regulate your blood sugar, and relax you, but you’ll get to enjoy it while having a social experience, which is always nice to do when Libran energy is around.
