This month (tomorrow) has us seeing a rare, second Full Blue Moon!
Yes, that’s right. Saturday 3/31 as of 8:37 AM EST, we have a Full Blue Moon in the sign of the diplomat-Libra.
A Full Moon happens when the Sun is opposite the Moon.
This highlights the polarities (opposing forces) in our lives.
These polarities are of an emotional, physical and spiritual nature. It can be one area or all three, and each Full Moon will feel different based on the sign and planetary aspects surrounding the Moon.
Awareness and emotion reach their peak and are heightened around Full Moons. This is why we feel more edgy and anxious around these times, sometimes not even being able to sleep.
Blue Moons are just a fancy way of referring to the fact that it is quite rare to have two Full Moons in the same month. Hence, the term ‘Once In A Blue Moon’.
Astrologically speaking, the fact that this is a Blue Moon does not really heighten or lessen the magnitude of the energy. This Full Moon is energetically charged enough!
This Full Moon emphasizes the opposing energy of the Sun which is in Aries, and the Moon which is in Libra.
Aries is under the element of fire and represents action, drive and force. Aries is about the self above all else.
Libra is under the element of air and represents fairness, balance and equality. Libra is about the others first, self second.
Under the duality of this energy we struggle, best believe it . We struggle with what is right for us, versus what is right for others.
March has been a wild ride with peaks and valleys, highs and lows emotionally. Energy levels have crashed and burned. We feel like human sling-shots going from one thing to the next, sometimes on autopilot.
The sky has been doing the tango this month, that’s for sure – and one thing is for certain: ‘As above so below’. We all feel this , make no mistake. The more sensitive you are to energy, all the more this will resonate with you.
If you are a Libra or other Air sign (Gemini, Aquarius) or your rising sign and/or Moon fall in any of these signs, you will feel this even more.
This Full Moon falls under the Air Sign of Libra- the sign of peace, harmony and balance.
Libra asks us to strike a balance. Libra seeks justice.
The issue around us at this time is that we are not feeling balanced within ourselves! Our inner-critics are talking to us loudly, pointing out to us all of our perceived flaws, where we feel we are lacking.
Keep in mind that this is a time where we are our own worst enemy.
We are very self-conscious as we try to navigate these polarizing energies.
This Blue Full Moon is Blue, that is for sure.
There are several planetary aspects contributing to this overwhelming energy. Most of them are challenging.
One of the major Astrological players right now is Mercury, the planet that rules all communication and technology, is retrograde (backwards), and is making an opposition (frictional aspect) to this Moon in Libra.
What we really feel, versus what and how we communicate our thoughts and feelings, are at odds and quite muddled up.
We ourselves may not even know how we are truly feeling, so trying to let others in on how we feel is well, super challenging.
The potential for arguments is high right now, so ‘mums the word’ might just be the motto to live by over these next few days!
Mars (planet of action, drive and force) is conjunct Saturn (planet of responsibility, limitations, and our challenging lessons).
This makes for the feeling of restlessness, edginess and impatience. Due to these feelings, you may be tempted to act hastily but try not to or you may just end up making a huge mistake. Heed to the caution of Saturn right now and slow down and think things through.
Saturn is the Daddy of the zodiac, and for good reason. He asks you to take precaution and responsibility and this is a very wise idea under this Full Moon.
Moon (emotion) and Mercury (communication) are both making a square (challenging aspect) to Mars (action).
This is all about anger coming up to the surface. Anger from deep within. Anger that may even surprise you to know that it is there. Have a constructive outlet right now or harsh words and fights are quite possible.
You don’t want to say or do anything that you will regret later, and remember what we said about Mercury being retrograde above. Communication is already spotty! The potential is high to fly off the handle. This is a red-hot button aspect so take care!
Moon and Mercury are also both making a square to Saturn- the teacher.
These aspects make it difficult to connect to others in a meaningful way. It is quite possible to have feelings of extreme loneliness, sadness, shame, blame and guilt come out to play with you at this time.
Ride the wave and keep in mind that ‘this too shall pass’. Acknowledge these feelings, but don’t sit and wallow in them.
You may want to communicate your feelings, but any attempt and you may just fall short of the mark, having some ‘foot in your mouth’ moments. Might just be advisable to keep the pity party to ‘party of one’. Unless of course, you are talking things out with a counselor, which I highly suggest.
On the positive side- we have a ray of Sunshine behind the Moonlight. Jupiter (prosperity, growth, abundance) is making a supportive aspect to Pluto (transformation, resources and rebirth).
It will stay like this until the end of April, giving us all a little boost towards positive change.
If you are doing your soul work, if you are allowing things to flow and you are not forcing, than the potential for growth through unexpected change is high.
Remember Jupiter wants to support us while Pluto wants to transform us. Together, these two can move mountains for us, if we let them.
Take good care of your inner world, your thoughts and your actions at this time as the potential is there to be feeling lonely, and ‘blue’ literally! Perhaps spending time in quiet reflection is the best bet. Get out into nature, exercise, meditate.
This Full Moon is definitely a heavy one, but not anything you cannot handle, especially if you heed the above advice.
Love & Light to all,
