“Few delights can equal the presence of one whom we trust utterly.” George MacDonald
The Full Moon in “partnership” Libra today at 27 degrees (10:45 pm EDT) puts a focus on our relationships with others. The Full Moon opposes the Sun in “self-discovery” Aries. When we have opposing energies, we are always needing to find a balance between the two forces. Here we are trying to balance our needs for cultivating our own healthy self-development while at the same time kindling or maintaining fulfilling relationships with others, something that many of us characteristically find rather difficult to do. Full Moons also help us glean “full awareness” of situations in our life, by “shedding more light” on them.
Too, with the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus all presently positioned in Aries, we have a plethora of energy now for “self-focus.” Also, as a result of this “Aries” thrust, many of us are learning new things about ourselves, and as we acquire this new self-knowledge, there can be corresponding impact on our external relationships. Often as we change and grow, so does everything else around us.
“Karma Lord” Saturn is also presently in the sign of Libra to teach us more wisdom on how to get along with others. Often with Saturn, too, we acquire this wisdom through the “school of hard knocks.” In other words, learning from our struggles and setbacks. Our breakups and heartaches.
Too, perhaps simply keeping in mind some of the “Libra keywords” now, such as diplomacy, cooperation, consideration, fairness, and politeness, and incorporating them as actions into our daily lives, may go a long way towards creating the “self versus others” balance that we are all striving for. Also, isn’t it so true, that when we help others achieve what they want, it helps us to get what we want? Something we may also want to take note of today, particularly with the energetic lineup in “self-serving” Aries, which is perennially searching for “what’s in it for me?”
The only aspect that the Full Moon in Libra is making is a quinqunx (adjustment) aspect to Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Venus is also the natural ruler of Libra. Venus is in “surrendering” and “caring” Pisces now (the sign representing our ‘link to the divine’), where she longingly yearns for the removal of all boundaries in her quest to be engulfed completely by love. Possibly yet another admonishment to us to somehow find a way to integrate our more egocentric, “temporal” nature with our more enduring, selfless, “divine” being.
“It is divinity that shapes, not only your ends, but also your acts, your words and thoughts.” Swami Sivananda
