The Full Moon is happening at 16° of Aries and will be most potent for people with personal planets or the ascendant at 13° to 20° of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) and the air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius). In my practice, the purpose of astrology is to give us the ability to see the divinity in the shifting circumstances of our daily lives to help us surrender to what we cannot change, the courage to change what we can, and the wisdom to know the difference. If you are interested to know what part of your chart will be impacted, please revisit the New Moon in Libra post and find your rising sign in the horoscopes. The Full Moon is the manifestation of what was planted at that time.
This Full Moon is happening in conjunction with Chiron, the wounded healer. In Aries, he highlights the unhealed collective wound of both hyper-independence and co-dependency. If we have been unable to articulate or maintain our boundaries in the past, we likely carry the false belief that others are not to be trusted and are unreliable or we are unable to care for ourselves and are subject to the whims of others. We can now see, with the reflective light of the Moon, why there was so much contention to the New Moon’s aim of social cohesion, harmony, and balance and can begin the work to heal the imbalance of personal power and responsibility in our relationships and communities.
This lunation is assisted by the difficult energies of Saturn, the planet of necessity, and Mars, the planet of confrontation. Saturn assists us in the necessary task of reviewing our boundaries and Mars helps us to enforce them. We may begin to see that the ways we failed to honor our boundaries led us to believe that other people were unsafe to rely on or we must sacrifice our agency in the name of unsettled peace. It may be tempting to verbally lash out at others for their trespasses against us, however, it’s important to consider how we may not have known our own boundaries until they were crossed. We now have the ability to articulate them decisively thanks to that experience. We cannot blame others for not knowing better if we did not know better ourselves.
Though it may be challenging to say ‘no’ or communicate to our loved ones what we will no longer tolerate, all of this work is in service, ultimately, to a higher octave of justice and balance. If we can learn to walk the tightrope of honoring ourselves as individuals and honoring others in our community, we will find that both benefit. In order to do this, we need to let go of the resentments that keep us locked into believing that we cannot rely on others or that we cannot rely on ourselves. When healthy, Libra energy is able to discern how and when an action is a justice to all. When unhealthy, Libra energy is a blind servant to surface-level peace and people-pleasing. When we are able to trust ourselves by consistently maintaining and honoring our boundaries, we can fearlessly make connections and rely upon our relationships to nourish us in joy and harmony.
