Full Moons are a time of raising power, directing energy, and moving forward with intentions set at the previous New Moon. Because of the brightness of this phase, the Full Moon also sheds light on those things we need to focus on and shift our energy towards in order to attract what we desire. Depending on the sign the moon is in as it makes it way through a full rotation, each Full Moon will feel different depending on your own personal energy and where you fit on the yin-yang, feminine-masculine energy spectrum.
One of the most fascinating things about Full Moons is that during this time, the moon is always in the opposite sign as the Sun. For example, this Libra Moon sees the Sun in Aries, showing a balance between yin (feminine energies as seen with Libra) and yang (masculine energies with Aries). With the recent New Moon also occurring in Aries, it’s interesting that we have a continuation of this fiery energy to help us manifest the dreams we had during that time.
During the current Aries Sun season, we have had two Libra Full Moons, which is a bit out of the ordinary. This has given us a unique opportunity to work with this sign to further define our personal relationships with ourselves and others and release any energies that do not serve to assist in this process. The first Libra Full Moon asked us to look at the relationships we have with ourselves and with this current Full Moon, we are being asked to look more deeply at those relationships we have outside of ourselves.
Look at the connections we have with others. These connections can be anything from romantic partners, coworkers, friends, family, and potentially work itself or specific projects, as we tend to put a lot of our energy into the things we are working on. This Full Moon is asking directly, can you be yourself in each of these relationships? Can you be authentic and not hold back any part of yourself, for fear of being judged? Or do you find yourself holding your tongue, biting your lip, and staying silent?
When you cannot be who you are in any situation, it’s draining to your energy. It takes a lot of work to maintain the façade that comes with playacting and in the end, who benefits from that? Certainly not you. Take time this Full Moon to examine the balance you have currently, and decide what needs to change. It’s time to clarify what you need in each of the various relationships in your life.
We live in a world where other people are constantly around us and sometimes their energy affects us. Sometimes, we take on their energy, other times they take on ours. Finding the balance between give and take is essential here, as is ensuring that each relationship we participate in fulfills us and allows us to fully express ourselves. Evaluating current relationships and recognizing where your personal energy goes during interactions is the first step towards shifting that energy back into balance. For example, you might have that one friend that only calls you when they need help. To shift that energy, you could listen to them and then ask them what they plan to do instead of offering them advice. A simple shift in energy (from ‘fixing’ to ‘listening’) often results in one of two things happening: either the person figures it out on their own, or they get angry that you no longer offer to fix their problems and they stop calling/texting.
