We experience a Full Moon on Tuesday, April 7th at 10:34 PM EDT – this Full Moon will present in the zodiac of Libra, and it is also the first Full Moon of the Spring season. This Full Moon in Libra will highlight balance, harmony, and relationships. We are being given an opportunity to pause and evaluate how balanced and harmonious our lives are, especially as it relates to not only our relationships with others, but particularly the relationship we have with ourselves.
Balance, Harmony, Relationships
Spring is the season of re-birth, growth, and beauty, moving from darkness to light. This first Full Moon of the Spring season is also a move from darkness to light (full illumination). This Full Moon will shine a light on our lives in general, as well as our relationships, with an opportunity to notice and feel into how balanced and harmonious our lives are at this time. Nature is always moving toward balance, and we are being called to ask ourselves if we are as well. As we recently transitioned into the Spring season, marked by the Vernal Equinox late last month, we may have been intentionally (or unintentionally) creating shifts in our personal lives to move toward greater balance. Perhaps we’ve been spending more time outdoors and connecting with nature, after months of spending more time inside and ‘hibernating’. Maybe we have been moving our bodies more and getting more frequent physical exercise. Or possibly we’ve been taking time to clean up and organize our homes, freshening, lightening, creating space – clearing out the old and making room for new energy and ways of being. Regardless of what it may look like in each of our personal lives, how we’ve been moving toward balance is a huge theme under this Libra Full Moon! Let’s take this opportunity to pause, ask ourselves if we feel balanced, both internally and externally, and if not, what we may be able to do to create greater balance in our lives.
Personally, I feel like balance and harmony go hand-in-hand – when there is balance, harmony usually follows. So if we are not feeling balanced, our lives will likely not feel harmonious either. As we start to create more balance in our personal worlds, it’s interesting to notice if things begin to shift into feeling more harmonious. There’s not much more that I have to say on this, other than that we may use this Full Moon to be keenly aware of both the energies of balance and harmony and how we are currently experiencing them (or not).
Libra also places great emphasis on relationships! During this Full Moon, we may also consider creating space, and allowing its illumination to more deeply reveal to us how we are experiencing the relationship we have with ourselves as well as others, remembering that the two are intertwined. If we do not have a balanced and harmonious relationship with ourselves, it’s not likely that we will be experiencing balanced, harmonious relationships with others. How we treat and care for ourselves is a model for how we expect others to treat and care for us – if we are placing too much stock in outside relationships and neglecting ourselves, that also does not cultivate a balanced state of being. During this Spring season, Mother Earth is re-awakening, and her first Full Moon offers us this chance to re-awaken to ourselves, as well as everything and everyone surrounding us. This is a call for deep presence, pause, evaluation, and appreciation – and given the current state of our world, I believe this is more important than ever!
Wishing all of you abundant Full Moon blessings!
