With the sun in Aries, April 8th brings a soft, pink full moon (exact at 04.35 AM Oslo time) in Aries’ opposing sign, lovely Libra. Libra being the sign of love, harmony and partnerships this is an especially potent time to heal your past wounds and create new healthy relationships in your life.
As you may already know, all relationships mirror you in some way, and therefore can be amazing platforms for personal and spiritual growth. Our closest relationships are usually where our deepest insecurities and wounds are triggered, and by learning to slow down, take a step back to act out of understanding and love, finding compassion and patience to try and understand both ourselves as well as our partner – instead of reacting out of fear and insecurities – we can learn to grow, evolve and heal on a much deeper level. Because the hard truth is that if it feels like you’re in a never-ending hamster wheel, repeatedly falling into the same patterns in your life over and over, this is usually due to unresolved issues. And, as it is impossible to move past what you have not yet fully moved through, you can only truly heal what you are brave enough to feel. You need to feel it to heal it as they say <3
But this full moon is not only about relationships and romance. Libra may constantly wear rose-colored glasses, but she is also a peace-loving activist who craves balance in all aspects of her life. As always, the sun and full moon are zodiacal opposites, and with Libra opposing Aries, this an excellent time to do pause and check in, taking time to balancing out the opposing forces represented in your life at this time.
Aries and Libra represents the eternal dance between the masculine and the feminine energies of the universe: Ambitious, go getter Aries, ruled by action planet, Mars, and peace-loving Libra, ruled by the Goddess of love and abundance, Venus. It’s the ebb and flow of give and take, self and others, war and peace, endings and new beginnings. It’s the fiery light of Yang and the introspective darkness of Yin, both forces equally important, as one cannot exist without the other. Use this time to re-center yourself, then watch how the future path unfolds more clearly as your energy gets more balanced, making you more aligned with the Universe.
But more than anything, wrap yourself up in the loving blanket of the harmonious and loving Libra energy. Shower yourself with self-love and shower those around you with love too. Embrace the imperfections of yourself and others, knowing that a beautiful facade more often than not masks a messy interior. Find you inner voice, speak up and be true to your authentic self.
Be accepting and forgiving. Practice daily gratitude, and be grateful for all that has been and for all that will be, well aware that your past challenges has simply been lessons of growth, helping you shed your layers and unwrapping your unique gifts of how you can be of service to heal the world around you.
Now, take some time to slow down and connect to April’s soft and loving pink moon. Be proud of how far you’ve come and congratulate yourself on all your hard work. Then go out and shine your light bright!
