Libra Full Moon 2017


Happy Libra Full Moon đź’ś

FULL MOON MEANING

Full Moons occur when the Sun and the Moon are at exact opposite degrees in the zodiac. So, when the Moon eand Sun are opposition each other during Aries Season, we get the Libra Full Moon. This aspect brings our attention to points of tension in our lives caused by opposing influences. For example, your wants vs. your needs. Your wants vs. other people’s wants. Work vs. personal life.

In the case of Aries vs. Libra, we can see common themes of The Self vs. Others, or Targeted Focus vs. Harmony. Your goals from the Aries New Moon on March 27 can be adjusted to tailor to your preferences, needs or limitations. The Aries New Moon was about starting fresh, and bringing new intentions into the astrological year. The Libra Full Moon is telling us to basically forget about the mindset of obtaining that which we lack – this is mostly referring to how we struggle internally about characteristics and talents that we wish we had. How about we improve what we already have? If we build upon what is natural for ourselves, progress and growth would be exponential in relation to how it would be to start and build on something we don’t already know.

The Full Moon generally aids us in shedding what we don’t need. Let’s shed some extra stress and stop focusing on working hard for no reason. Do you want an end result, but the way you’ve been going about it hasn’t worked for you? Or is there any way you can break down your wants and needs into simpler terms? Think of other ways you can obtain that end result without feeling like you’re working endlessly. We all have underutilized talents – perhaps you can access those to get what you want. Or have any of your intentions been unrealistic given your limitations? In that case, it might be best to work on something else that would generate the same type of satisfaction within you.

 

LIBRA FULL MOON INTENTIONS

First you need to know your Sun Sign and your Ascendant (Rising) Sign. The Sun sign is your birthday, but you can only know your Rising sign, if you know the exact time of your birth.  If you are curious about this, please look at our free Natal Chart calculator to find your fate. Below you can find your Rising sign and Sun sign’s Aries New Moon intentions.

(NOTE: for more advanced Astrologers – If you have an interception in your chart, or uneven houses, read the signs on either side of your Rising sign to see if one of them makes more sense to you, the Full Moon could fall in another life area, if this is the case.)

In terms of intentions, take a piece of paper (or your phone notes), write down any difficulties you have experienced when it comes to manifesting your intentions from the Aries New Moon. Say you don’t have any New Moon intentions written down? No problem. I guarantee you have some goals or intentions that you have focused on for the past 2 weeks, even if you didn’t know about the New Moon. If you have experienced any difficulties, find your Sun and/or Rising Sign below to help you figure out how you can conquer or work around these difficulties.

 

 

THE TAKEAWAY

The correlation between success and happiness is a changeable one. Say you realize that you want something. If you obtain it, that makes you feel happy and successful. However, the second you focus on the next thing you lack, and your attempts to obtain it are unsuccessful, does that make you feel less successful and less happy than you did a second ago?

That being said, have fun with these Full Moon revisions. Don’t take them or yourself too seriously, and don’t put too much weight on them.

YOUR SUN SIGN AND/OR RISING SIGN

During the Libra Full Moon, your Sun sign and Rising Sign can show an inclination to certain revisions. The Aries New Moon was about physically acting towards what you want in your life. Now, the Libra Full Moon is asking you to step back and see if you have been tipping the scales in favor of anything that might have consumed you recently. Remember, Libra is all about balance and harmony. If there is anything you have been focusing on heavily with not much progress, it might be time to nurture other parts of you life you might have neglected in the process.
