Ah, the ethereal glow of the Full Moon, this month in the graceful sign of Libra. March began with a Full Moon & it is ending with a Full Moon. This is referred to as a Blue Moon visitation; the Moon reaches its fullness for a second time in one month.
In folklore, the March Full Moon is called either the WORM MOON or the SAP MOON, indicating that the worms are waking from their slumber and that the sap is beginning to run. Here, north of the 49th we are beginning to wonder if either of these things will ever happen! The winter has been long.
However, any way you look at it—and, please, do go out and look at it, this is one of the sweetest Full Moons of the year. Libra energy is soft and lovely and those who are actually born under a Libra Moon, are blessed with one of the kindest of hearts. Relationships play a significant role in their lives and they seek every avenue of cooperation and compromise that they are able to. If you have a Libra Moon person in your life, you are lucky. They will always make you feel loved and significant! They can’t help it; it just comes naturally.
The Libra Full Moon focuses her beam directly on the exuberant Aries Sun, providing a wee bit of balance and mindfulness. Libra is all about ‘the other’ while Aries is a complete celebration of self. When the two perspectives are integrated, a good working relationship can be developed. Take the time to sit and plan out the projects that you are undertaking. Consider consequences for actions that you feel compelled to make. Take off the rose coloured glasses and really examine all possible outcomes. If there is one thing that we have discovered is that others do not always react to what we do in the way that we think they will. Yikes! So sit and deliberate on just what might occur if you leap into that unknown territory of ACTIONS TAKEN.
Mercury is retrograde until mid-April and beyond if you count the shadow degrees (which you should), so this adds to the energy of consideration and deliberation. The way to get the biggest bang for your buck during retrograde periods is to SLOW DOWN, both literally and metaphorically. Take a second look. Give a second thought. Measure twice. You get it. The retrogrades are wired into the whole scheme of things for a reason. Maximize the opportunity.
Mars just moved into Capricorn and will conjoin both Saturn and Pluto in the next couple of months. Those of you born under Capricorn should feel an extra surge of energy, a compulsion to put those track shoes on and get moving. Both the Moon and Mars are triggers, indicators of action so this month with a cardinal Full Moon and a cardinal Mars, energy picks up steam.
Jupiter is retrograding in Scorpio providing us with even more of a focus. Hey, all you Scorpio Suns, are you enjoying crawling out from under your rocks? When Jupiter transits any sign, opportunities can present themselves accordingly.
Saturn is slowing down considerably in preparation for his retrograde in Capricorn. This can be a very steadying influence if you have dotted your ‘I’s’ & crossed your ‘t’s. The key is always attention to detail. Pay attention.
We are right on the edge of the once in 8 year energetic shift of Uranus. He moves into Taurus in May. At this late degree placement, 28-30 of Aries, be ready for the unpredictable in the Aries sector of your chart.
Finally, Pluto is virtually at a standstill @ 22* of Capricorn, ready to station retrograde on April 22. As you can see, the energy fully supports caution, consideration, review and refinement.
The Sabian Symbols for this Full Moon are:
A PROFESSOR PEERING OVER HIS GLASSES
THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY
We are encouraged to be sovereign in all that we do, take responsibility for the construct fo our reality and carefully consider all thoughts and actions as we do so. Why do you do the things that you do? What are the fundamentals of your value system? Are you comfortable with the decisions that have brought you to this place in your life journey? Is there something that you can change to improve your situation? Are you willing to do what is necessary to get to where you want to be? Oh my, so many things to review!
With all of the retrograde energy around us, it is clear that the divine is asking us to take the time to scope out the landscape. With the weather turning, the sun getting stronger, the days getting longer, we can start to move out of our lairs and sit under the sky and contemplate just what, exactly, we might like to do! Don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to actually do whatever it might be!
