Spring, spring, spring into action and happy happenstance.
Any opportunity to set intentions and clear the slate for a new chapter, I’m IN! This Wednesday marks the first full moon of the season, spring is here.
My favorite go-to-site for starry related inquiries, Cafe Astrology, has great insight as usual:
A Full Moon occurs on Wednesday, March 27th, 2013, at 5:27 AM EDT.
On Wednesday, a Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Aries opposes the Moon in Libra. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time – a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
The Aries-Libra polarity is a relationship axis, where Aries represents “self” and Libra represents “other”. Where Aries is about self-assertion, Libra is about compromise. The energy of the Libra Moon is the awareness of the need for relationships and all that comes with maintaining them — compromising, negotiating, graciousness, and balancing. The Aries Sun, on the other hand, is self-assertive, leading, and personally courageous. This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between meeting our personal needs and tending to the needs of a significant other, and between independence or autonomy and dependence or companionability.
The Libra Moon is diplomatic, equality-minded, and fair-minded. The Aries Sun, however, values authenticity over tact, and is energized by independent efforts. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict.
This Full Moon is especially powerful, as the Sun aligns with Venus, Uranus, and Mars, opposing the Moon, and squaring Pluto. Changes are necessary, and resistance will only serve to attract opposition. A sextile to Jupiter alleviates some of the tension.
With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as emotions burst forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves, and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is new and not particularly rational as yet. Full Moons are about exposing or illuminating issues that are already there, but that have not yet been dealt with. Where does the Full Moon fall by house in your natal chart? Read more here.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 6 degrees and 52 minutes of Libra opposite the Sun at 6 degrees and 52 minutes of Aries, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 3 to 11 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.
