You and Me
The Full Moon in Libra calls out the classic dilemma between self and other. All humans need to live in their own skin, while relating and interacting with others. This is the dance between independence and togetherness.
Face Fear, Seek Harmony
The Sun in fierce Aries signifies the beginning of spring. Like bears yawning in a cave, buried seeds stir awake in response. On a personal level, Aries lessons involve learning courage through facing fear, with the assertive, independent approach of the Warrior. Aggression, impulsive decisions, and a shoot-first-ask-questions-later mentality characterize the dark side. On the other hand, the Full Libra Moon seeks harmony, diplomacy, and justice. It offers the multi-dimensional view of being able to see and mediate all sides. Yet beware the need for peace at any cost.
The poet Nikki Giovanni says, “If you don’t understand yourself, you don’t understand anybody else.” Finding healthy balance in relationships requires knowing and befriending yourself. At the soul level, relationships serve as mirrors. Pointing fingers at the other merely reveals your own vulnerability. The Aries-Libra polarity, done well, advances the cause of interdependence by balancing personal and social power.
At the Pisces New Moon on March 13th, we focused on inward healing and empathy. At the Full Moon, we see an inflamed wound coming to the surface. Now is the time to air grievances in any of your relationships. Take a deep breath, anchor your feet to the ground, and speak bravely from a place of equanimity.
Consider where this dynamic is taking place in your own life. What action can you take to help bring about balance? Use your Rising Sign (if you don’t know it, use your Sun Sign) to see where the clues of astrology lead you.
