Libra Full Moon ~ Open Your Heart to Love!
Monday’s Full Moon (11:08pm PST) is in air sign Libra. Libra is all about partnerships and balance, and learning how to see both sides of the equation. Libra’s ruler, the planet Venus, is often called the Goddess of Love, bringing a heart-centered focus to this Full Moon. Indeed—April’s Full Moon is known as the “Pink Moon”, which fits perfectly, because pink is the color associated with love and the Heart Chakra!
When the Moon is in Libra, it is a perfect time to put yourself in the shoes of someone else. How can you be more compassionate? How can you be of service to others, and the world? The last few months have focused on setting goals and dreaming big. The Universe has been prompting us to get clear about what we truly desire, and what we want the rest of the year to look and feel like.
Now the time has come to turn our attention to others, and how our time and energy can be spent to contribute to the greater good. Sometimes, however, the best way that we can serve others is by being true to ourselves—our authentic self. In order to be truly authentic, one must love and accept themselves wholeheartedly—warts and all! As it is said: You can only love another to the degree that you love yourself.
This Full Moon will be guiding us to get to know ourselves a little bit better. We are being prompted to slow down and reflect on the motivation and intentions behind or goals, dreams and wishes. We have planted the seeds of our dreams, and now it is time to step back and be patient; to let things marinate before moving forward. This sentiment aligns with the current Mercury Retrograde—a time to regroup, review and take a breather.
