Today’s Full Moon (11:48 AM PDT 8° Libra/Aries) opposes both Venus and Chiron, which are conjunct the Aries Sun. Idealism and impatience reach a peak. The necessary practicality and support must come from the sensitive Libra Moon’s desire for productive interaction with others. The Moon’s afternoon trine to Saturn helps to bolster our self-confidence but, in general, it is hard to find the necessary insight and subtlety to easily grasp the challenges to productive cooperation. There are especially strong opposing demands under today’s Full Moon, which encourage us to approach situations with as broad a perspective as possible. By maintaining the proper balance between seemingly conflicting demands or feelings, we will find ways to establish the much needed interaction that will help us to stay productive.
Today’s Libra full moon pushes us to focus on relationships. We’re focusing on “us” rather than “I” and harnessing the peaceful vibes in partnerships this moon brings.
This can also be a time of mending fences because Venus and the healing centaur Chiron are active in the day’s celestial energy. Since yesterday brought the Venus star point in Aries, this is a good time to put your money where your mouth is and move toward embracing the dreams that you began to manifest at that time. Rather than just talk about your vision, it’s time to take steps to achieve it.
The Venus star point is still going strong, adding motivation to the cosmic and lunar energy. It’s crucial to transform today. If we don’t, then the sentimental vibe will linger through the next seven years. This is the last time this month that we can reach for our dreams. Release. Heal. Embrace transformation. Let go of old hang-ups and move forward. Move in the flow and be in sync with the cosmos.
The Essence: Every 28 days, the moon manifests a steady progression from darkness to light, and then back again. This phenomenon in our skies has a powerful impact on our human psyches. It offers us the certainty that after periods of emptiness and darkness, there is light waiting so we can be reborn into a new phase. This calls to mind a native African prayer to the moon: “May our lives be renewed as yours is.”
The moon also has a strong influence on the ebb and flow of waters on the Earth. This same power, in turn, affects human feelings and emotions and mirrors their rising from or hiding back into the unconscious.
The Medicine: This card calls you to go on a journey of renewal, just like the moon does every month, so you can get unstuck, whether from a specific situation or life in general. For this you need to make time to be with yourself without the distractions of modern society, and have the courage to look at the unwanted or unembraced parts of your being until you arrive at a place of resolution. Shamanic lore explains that the finest treasures of humanity are hidden where people are most afraid to go.
