Full Moon in Libra

Today, a gentle spring rain is falling, I have head cold symptoms and the temptation to not write about the full moon is quite strong for me. It may have something to do with the fact that my natal moon in Aries is being tweaked by the transiting lunar opposition. Also, I have the sign of Libra intercepted in my natal chart and no other planets in the sign of Libra. When we have an intercepted sign in our chart, it can be difficult for us to get what that sign is about, especially if we have no planets in the sign. When there is absolutely no energy signature at all, we come to understand the intercepted sign through deliberate study or by getting to know someone who has personal planets in our intercepted sign. An intercepted sign can be thought of as an energetic blind spot. We can’t see it, and we can’t see that we can’t see it until someone shows it to us. After we are shown, we become aware, but all our knowledge of the intercepted sign remains on the intellectual level.

The key theme for this lunation is relationship. With Sun, Venus, Mercury in Aries opposing moon in Libra and Saturn retrograde in Libra, what comes to mind for me is thwarted desires, petty and illogical arguments over who is right or wrong or who gets what. Relationship behaviors and patterns will come to light now. Things we may not have been able to see about ourselves or someone else will suddenly be glaringly obvious. It may be time to reevaluate agreements. Unfortunately, until Saturn goes direct in June, I suspect no compromise will be agreeable to both sides.

I know the physical effects of the Aries/Libra energy are affecting me personally due to my own natal moon. Aries rules the head. Libra, the kidneys. In general, this is the time of year when the seasons change and trees and plants begin to bloom. Allergies and head colds are to be expected. Get plenty of rest and drink plenty of fluids to keep the kidneys healthy.

Astrology is primarily about relationship. How we relate to the world around us and how we relate to others. As a personal astrologer, I get such a buzz from being able to help people understand how their natal chart influences their relationships. Feel free to contact me if you have a question about my consultation services.
