HOROSCOPES FOR THE FULL MOON IN LIBRA
The Full Moon perfects at 29°Libra07’ at 4:12am PDT on April 19th, wrapping up a series of self-love and relationship cycles that have travelled to and from the wild ends of several spectrums and strange scales. The following day, the Sun enters Taurus and Venus enters Aries, slowing down our energetic roll while speeding up our race for security in the name of all we’d like to create. As the Sun enters the sign of the bull, a generally steady solar placement, it makes its first conjunction to Uranus in this sign since the year 1941. This meeting shines a headlamp somewhere in each of our individual charts, alerting us to invasive species that might need to be pulled from their roots in order for us to work with fertile soil over the next eight years. If we’re willing to embrace the shocks that come with enlightenment, Uranus will support us as we break down painful patterning and rewire our security systems. Know that this surprise can be just as powerful in the form of internal aha moments as it can in external announcements.
Meanwhile, Pluto and Saturn are still hovering together in close company as they prepare to station retrograde near the South Node in Capricorn. To be a die-hard for harsh rules under this astrology will lead to difficult ego-deaths and rude awakenings. Together, these powerhouses are propelling us to work rigorously to understand the structures that hide out in our psyches. Pluto hyperextends our obsessive tendencies to control until we’re desperate to let go. It creates awareness of how our rigidity (Saturn) hurts more than helps us. True to a nature that demands we wrestle with our resilience and our patience, these outer planets will not perfect their encounter until early 2020. Time is a construct that will not budge unless you’re willing to bend reality. Remember, anything you try to control will ultimately control you. Use this period to consider the areas of your life that need a fuller cup to sustain themselves. How does your psychological framework keep you from all the care that comes as soon as you cut the compulsion to keep your cool or command the show?
As Mercury and Venus move through the early degrees of Aries, they look to Mars in Gemini for clarity and tact. It’s okay, even beneficial, to speak your peace more than once. To ask twice for whatever you need. To set your boundary as many times as it takes until you can keep it with yourself. Let this Moon light up our collective consciousness. Let this be a time when we communicate with passion but not impatience. When we listen actively as a way to relay our respect. When we use our raw power to stand for ourselves and our allies but not against others, especially when we don’t really know or understand them. Let us learn to call in rather than out. Let us join our visions because someone’s polar point of view is the antidote to the frigid nature of our fragility. When we practice doing the things that we say we we hold in high regard, our principles have more potency than when we simply speak them. Let us lend attention to various tragedies with equitable empathy. Let us reach for hands to hold because we’d rather harmonize than hurt. Let us open our hearts to receive the love in the world in whatever form it wants to come.
