*FULL MOON* in Libra brings a heart+mind alignment so we can better navigate the delicate balance of me and we within all our relations.
Universal energies have definitely been moving fast these last few months, but after the April Full Moon, things are going to start slowing down. The April Full Moon falls on the 11th in the air sign of Libra. Libra is all about partnerships and balance, Libra is all about learning how to see both sides of the coin.
When the Moon is in Libra, it is the perfect time to put yourself in the shoes of someone else. How can you be more compassionate? How can you be of service to the world?
The last few months have all been about setting goals and dreaming big. The Universe has been asking you to get clear about what you want, and about what you want the rest of the year to look and feel like.
Now however, the time has come to turn your attention onto others and onto your greater global mission. How can you serve the world? How can you benefit others?
There is no right or wrong answer here. In fact, the best way that you can serve others and the world is by being true to your authentic self.
In order to be true to your authentic self, you first have to love yourself. It is only when you love and accept yourself wholeheartedly, that you know who you really are. And when you know who you really are, that is when you can be of the greatest service to the world.
The April Full Moon is definitely going to be guiding us to get to know ourselves a little better. We will all be asked to slow down and reflect on the bigger picture mission behind our goals, dreams and wishes.
We have made big plans and planted our dreams, but now it is time to step back, slow down and be patient. Now it is time to let things marinate for a bit before moving forward again.
This is especially true seeing that this Libra Full Moon has some wildcard energy. This wildcard energy is nothing to fear, instead it is important to embrace it. Slow down around the days leading into and after the Full Moon, and take the time to plan before forging ahead.
Be patient and gentle with yourself and allow yourself time to process and release any lingering emotions. In fact, emotional energy will be high around the time of this Full Moon, so just be kind and loving with yourself.
Perhaps make time to do something relaxing and pampering and try your best to be patient, supportive and loving towards others.
With Venus and Mercury also in retrograde, you may have to be extra cautious about what you choose to share and how you choose to present things to others.
The energy of change has been in the air, but change is simply necessary for growth and this April Full Moon will be helping all of us to grow and embrace the changes that have arrived.
Trust and know that any changes you have been dealing with are simply there to push you out of your comfort zone into something bigger and better.
While the April Full Moon does bring its challenges and will be triggering us to grow, it also brings many rewards.
Around the time of the Full Moon, the Universe is going to be offering you a gift. Almost like reward for all of your hard work for the years gone by.
Your hard work and the growth that you have already achieved has not been ignored or forgotten by the Universe, and in April it is going to be celebrated.
If something has changed or come to an end recently, whether it is a job, relationship, or the end of a journey, really make time to reflect and celebrate. Really make the time to congratulate yourself and to honor yourself for all of your hard work.
If health issues have arisen for you this year, also make the time to celebrate your body and to pay gratitude for the healing process.
In many ways, the April Full Moon is going to remind you that you have a lot to celebrate. As long as you can open your heart to this idea, the flood gates of celebratory energy will flow.
To navigate this wildcard Full Moon, gratitude is key. Use the energy of gratitude as your driving force for the month ahead – be thankful for all that was and for all that will be.
2017 is a year to build foundations and dream big, and the energy of the April Full Moon is simply reminding us to slow down, pause, reflect and be grateful for all that we have achieved.
Air signs are mental; so expect both some emotional objectivity along with excessive emotional analysis even obsession by the mind. An air sign Moon teaches us flexibility, to bend like a tree in the wind and to fly above the earth and gain perspective, neutrality and clarity.only major, radical social and political change is upon our planet but also the necessity of inclusion of our spiritual source.
CATHY PAGANO from her Wisdom of Astrology:
“In the aftermath of the long 2012-2015 Uranus in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn, we are now engaged in the hard work of bringing our ideals about the future into our collective life.
And so these same group energies are active again, and can be used in positive, conscious ways or in mob-mentality, destructive ways.
Instead of thinking of this as a fight, think of it as Rising Up to our royal natures and taking responsibility for each other…
This Aries/Libra Full Moon is packed with power…
With the Sun in Aries, we seek a strong sense of self-identity– who am I and what am I here to do in this lifetime?
With the Moon in Libra, our unconscious seeks a balance through relating to others – can we allow others to be themselves without judgments and expectations?
Can we be ourselves when we’re with others, or do we need to hide ourselves behind ‘appropriate’ masks?
Can we be ourselves in partnership? Can we find the right partners for us?
These questions get supercharged at this Full Moon. Let your unique genius rock the day.

CHAD WOODWARD from his Kosmic Mind:
“Luckily, the Full Moon in Libra conjoins Jupiter. That helps to open up new possibilities, opportunities, and connections for us at the right moment.
However, don’t overestimate what you can handle. Don’t be surprised if the universe throws you quite a lot with this Full Moon. Your job is to mindfully discern what it is you’re capable of taking on.
To start, take a deep breath (don’t forget to exhale). Find your center of calm or your happy place. Sit there and gather yourself.
Transitions are often stressful; that’s a natural consequence of change.
This social Full Moon can give you a helping hand. Consider reaching out and putting yourself out there to truly benefit, but first, make sure you’ve found some place of balance within yourself.
That might not be reflected in your external life, but you can always find it within…
The need for freedom and authenticity is strong, which can go against cooperation or compromise in certain situations.
This Full Moon equally asks that we find some balance between the need to be true to ourselves and the need to integrate with others.
That’s a point of frustration, but again, consider new possibilities you’ve yet to encounter.
Put yourself in a place of receptivity and trust that you will find a new solution that’s truly out of the box.
And lastly, Venus, the ruler of the Full Moon is currently stationing and conjunct Chiron. That might accentuate heart wounds, shadows, and defects in our relationships, but realize that whatever pain you may encounter can be quickly transmuted with a change of attitude and a change of heart.
You have the power to rise above anything you encounter with others, by seeing it from a different perspective, or even focusing on bigger thing.”
