The Full Moon in Libra occurs on April 4, 2015 at 7:06 am E.S.T., and coincides with a Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses always brings certain issues to light, leading to unexpected developments, with decisions and actions taking on extra importance.
Lunar Eclipses are oriented around relationships and the feeling that is illuminated is one of a crisis of some sort – usually from a lack of attention or a lingering neediness or great want. This “relationship” does not necessarily mean a personal or love relationship, but can also mean a work-related relationship, health, or even the one we have with ourselves. Many times when a Lunar Eclipse is in association with a Full Moon, the effects can last for up to six months, when the next Lunar eclipse will occur.
Since this Lunar eclipse is in the astrological sign of Libra, the Scales, the need for balance in our lives comes to the forefront. Libra Moons represent diplomacy and fair mindedness for all, however, since Aries has a hidden agenda in this configuration, that agenda may be for the self and not really about diplomacy for all. This Lunar Eclipse will place the magnifying glass on flaws in our lives, particularly in partnerships and our relationship with ourself. Emotions run high and can overload the senses as decisions are made with emotional energy.
Full Moons are traditionally held as times to banish and remove, and the Full Moon in Libra, a “Cardinal” Air sign, means that the energy is innovative, intellectual and inventive. You may want to burn “Reversible” candles but if you are seeking a peaceful separation with a partner, lighting blue candles anointed with “Healing” and “Blessing” oil will aid and assist in keeping an even keel in this emotional time. It is also a good time to beautify your altar, creating new altar cloths, candles or robes.
The next New Moon will occur on April 18, 2015.
