Full moon in Libra - Resisting Change

This week we have a full moon in the sign of Libra, on Tuesday April 11 at 2:08am EDT. Full moons occur when the sun is opposite the moon. The sun is in the fiery and active sign of Aries, and the moon is in the airy and balanced sign of Libra. Full moons are a time of culmination and release. Whatever goals we set at the new moon, we will start to see some results. It also is a time when it is good to express gratitude and to release any worries or fears. The sun opposite the moon shows a conflict between our ego and will, and our emotional needs, particularly between our egos desire to be independent (Aries) and our emotional need for partnership (Libra). We must each find a way to reconcile this and strike a balance that works for us.

From the Oracle of the Radiant Sun

Sabian Symbol
This full moon is at 21degrees Libra. Look at where that point is in your birth chart to see what area you should focus your energies. The Sabian symbol for this degree is "A Crowd on a Beach". This alludes to that this is a time to work together with others and to think of the collective. Beaches are a liminal space, marking the boundaries between land and water, showing that collectively we are working towards transformation and an awareness of the need to work together. Think collectively and pay attention to messages from the subconscious this full moon.

Full Moon Aspects
Moon Conjunct Jupiter (retrograde)
This full moon is conjunct Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck. We will be feeling quite emotional and generous at this time and may push ourselves to promise too much to others. With Jupiter in retrograde, we are asked to reflect first before we make any promises to others. There may be some unexpected strokes of good luck too, especially for Libras, Leos, Sagittarius, Geminis and Aquarius.

Moon Opposite Uranus
The moon is opposite the planet of inspiration, insights and sudden events. Watch for surprises and insights that may catch you off guard and emotionally upset you. The things that are revealed at this time have important messages for you, for your growth.

Moon Square Pluto
We emotionally resist change by trying to manipulate or control others. Do not try to emotionally or sexually manipulate others or succumb to it yourself. This will only backfire on us. We cannot stop change, only move with it.

Sun Opposite Jupiter (retrograde)
The Sun is opposite expansive Jupiter. This leads to restlessness, as we may feel that we are not moving fast enough. We may try to push things too fast and get frustrated when things aren't happening in the time that we want. We must remember that the Universe doesn't work in the time frame we demand.

Sun Conjunct Uranus
While we may find sudden events upsetting to our sense of equilibrium, but they are asking us to grow and expand. What we think is a bad turn of events, turns out to actually work in your favour. Look to where 21 - 24 degrees Aries is in your chart to find out where this will occur in your life.

Sun Square Pluto
Like moon square Pluto, we may have trouble this full moon, not just emotionally, but on an ego level dealing with loss and change around us. We may take personally things that others do or events that are out of our control.

Retrograde Planets
This full moon there are four planets in retrograde. Mercury goes into retrograde on April 9th, in the sign of Taurus. Expect that mechanical and communication items or computers may break down, as this retrograde will manifest itself more physically as it is in an Earth sign. Mercury retrograde is a great time to revise and re-look at things. Its also a great time to sort through items and rediscover what you may have lost.
Venus is in retrograde in Pisces and will go direct on April 15. This is a time to look back on past relationships and to learn from them. It is not a good time to change your hairstyle, or wardrobe.
 Saturn and Jupiter retrogrades are more subtle. Saturn retrograde lifts some of the restrictions we may of been under, but it can lead us to be complacent. While Jupiter retrogrades mean that the progress we have made growing and expanding becomes slower and even stalled. It is a great time to go on a diet though.
Overall these planets in retrograde ask us to take time to reflect. Rather than moving forward, look back at the progress you have made since December, and reflect on how you can revise things, and where you want to go from here.
