March 31, 2018: 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).
This Full Moon ties into the Mars/Saturn conjunction that will be exact on April 2. This union of the planet of willpower and the planet of structure has us focusing upon the importance of being really thoughtful with how we utilize our energy. Consider what it is that you feel is really worth fighting for and what is just a passing fancy, as a means to harness your power and not fritter away your vital resources that you need to sustainably fuel your ambitions.
There’s a possibility that we could feel frustration if things seem to be going slower than we desire or we find ourselves not getting that which we desired. Having patience is challenging during Aries season yet do what you can to try to channel it. You may find connecting to the virtue of the slow and steady, and doing what you can to quell restlessness and impetuousness, quite well worth it—in fact, it could be a helpful strategy to avoid the latent incendiary energy that is possible to be lit up during these days. If we’re able to side-step minor accidents, clashes, and butting our heads against a wall, while still keeping our eye on what we’re committed to in the long term, why not try?
Additionally, the following day features an exact Sun/Mercury conjunction. While our minds may be bright and possibly racing with ideas and input, watch for a tendency to intellectualize things at the expense of other approaches to understanding. Be in your bright mind but also give honor to your senses, emotions, and intuition.
This month’s Full Moon falls at 11 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.
The Full Moon is exact at 8:37 am EDT
