Apparently tonight’s full moon in Libra is a BFD. And it hits exactly on my sun — which, according to the laws of astrology, should mean it will have a direct impact. (One law of astrology is that no matter how intense the transits, they won’t affect you if it doesn’t hit something that already exists in your chart.) Whatever.
Susan Miller calls it a Monster Moon — “tightly calibrated, a pressure point of the year.” This Full Moon is unusually hot, with big squeeze-type angles to the provocative energies of Mars and Pluto. Being aware helps you to prepare!
The Libra Full Moon chart suggests things coming to a head. Full Moons are harvest time, and with Libra comes in the instincts of the Judge. There can be a great re-balancing, with brave acts that flip the story drastically. This is not a time to provoke an “enemy” or pull a power move — it could backfire bigtime.
This could be the moment to overcome inertia. To bravely move with the energies of life, freedom, physical vitality and creative risks. It’s a tipping point moment, of action, to forge ahead fully engaged in the moment.
Four planets in high-spirited Aries make the atmosphere crackle with excitement. And yet, there is a wild and erratic pulse, and it must be said, a forcefulness, or aggression (violence). Even the lover Venus is acting crazy and unstable, electrified by the jolting Uranus.
Great and amazing strides are made, but only when we’re aware of the need for timing, and to stay rooted in the real. Some rude awakenings happen now, especially if we’ve got blind spots to what’s really going on.
Full Moons are about illumination, and what’s revealed now helps us balance the surging urge to act, with the demand to deal with “what is.” This is a testing time. Will we keep sight of our dreams, in the midst of great struggle? It’s said we gain strength of character through adversity. And this then fuels our ability to take risks, and put the full weight of our being behind what we’re doing.
It’s also the astro weather of a relationship being tested — how solid is it? What’s been repressed or denied is confronted. This can be ultimately freeing, even if events happen that seem devastating in the short term. The specter of force/aggression/violence here makes it one to err on the side of caution for personal safety.
