Today is a Full Moon in the sign of Libra and is a very powerful Full Moon at that because of other Astrological configurations. Before I talk about some of the other energies that make this a particularly potent full moon let me talk about Libra. Libra is the sign of balance, justice, relationships, art and social justice. It is no coincidence that scales are the symbol for many of the High Courts. In its shadow Libra can also have a tendency to seek peace at any price (to itself), be indecisive and have difficulty saying no. The greatest of balancing acts, and one that Libra teaches us, is the balancing act between self and others Libra is an air sign and air signs have an agile mind and are good communicators who can emphasize the intellect above all else. Often an appearance of sweetness and that of a light breeze but with the power of a gale force wind behind it. It’s all about movement and Libras evolutionary path is to develop the self through encounters with others and, thereby learning to balance the need for peace with the talent for challenging unjust situations rather than erring on one side or the other. The Full Moon is always an opposition to the Sun and the Sun is currently in Aries which is Warrior energy. Direct, energizing and pioneering. In the shadow it can be aggressive, volatile and reactionary. Now Libra full moon is ALWAYS opposite the Aries sun but what makes this Full Moon so powerful is that Mars, the ruling planet of Aries, is also in opposition....
