Full Super Moon in Libra &
The Witches New Year (Aries Season)
Venus rules Libra.
Mars rules Aries.
The two “rulers” of this Lunation are facing off in a triggering Square/ The lovers; the archetypal Masculine & Feminine polarities; the archetypal Relationship.
Relationship reigns over the energy of this Full Moon in more ways that one. Rarely do I ever narrow it down to one thing but for my sanity & yours - I will. So this is about Relationships.
There’s a lot of propaganda about owning your sovereignty, owning your independence, not letting anyone who “doesn’t serve you” leave. These are valid needs, valid advice. And yet they, so easily, can be usurped by the Ego to avoid conflict, intimacy, & connection.
Mars & Venus clash underneath the Relationship centric Libra Full Moon to teach us something about where we are in that relationship to ourselves.
Have we clung to our autonomy and forsaken relationship to our own detriment? Or have we honestly cultivated our sovereign space welcoming in aligned relationship to facilitate reciprocal growth?
Clarity within Relationship dynamics are possible at this time because while Venus in Aquarius (awakening our need for liberation & unconventional connection) and Mars in Taurus (igniting our need for grounded stability & pleasure) are “fighting” - they are both receiving help from else where in the solar system.
Venus makes an expansive sextile to Jupiter in Sagittarius reminding us of the power of experience in shifting and even arousing more honest to our soul belief systems. This aspect gives rise to the desire for affection & growth via relationship.
Mars makes a generous trine to alchemizing Pluto in Capricorn allowing us to not forget the pleasure and pay off that is possible when we put in the hard work of patience, passion, and respect that actually facilitates depth and transformation in relationship. We are invited to look at the blue prints, the architecture of what we are building.
It’s as if this tempered centric Libra Full Moon illuminates, or triggers (via unpredictable change maker Uranus), a conflict - both for the internal and external so that there may be a chance for resolution.
The scales could shift wildly in order to present plainly to us an opportunity to decide where we actually want to put the most weight right now - giving rise to our own definition of what “balance” looks like.
Libra struggles with decision as an analytical Air sign whom considers both sides to maintain some harmony. Yet the Full Moon swings it’s energy towards making Decisions, Conclusions, Statements etc - at least for the time being. To swing out of the stagnancy of indecision.
Mercury is Retrograde still in Pisces - until the 28th - and is about to approach a full conjunction with Neptune, planet of Illusion, Imagination, and the Subconscious - something that happened around Feb 18th when Mercury was direct. Think back to then to see what your emotional state was like, and whether or not there was something Relationship centered that featured prominent. Retrograde means resists, reassessments, revisions.
We may look back and think “Damn what was I doing/thinking/feeling to believe that ridiculous narrative I was telling myself!?” - bursting through those wondrous entertaining but sometimes totally illusion based narratives is in order.
If the whole ex-lover bug hasn’t hit you yet - it may now. It could be through Dreams, Memories, your Imagination, or weird Synchronized moments. I try not to think TOO deeply into these when the other worldly essences come through - I take it as the truth that I’m healing or purging something through this and it’s being reflected back to me in this way.
That being said - there is also potential this reincarnation materializes in “real” life - the energies in Pisces here make a opportunistic sextile to Saturn in Capricorn - a transit that speaks to manifestation itself - Saturn Capricorn prefers that any work we are doing be fully tactile and accessible. And, let’s be honest, at times we don’t really “believe” it until we see it, taste it, hear it - experience it in a plain manner.
The other way that this pulls through for us is by encouraging (maybe even warning!) us to take responsibility, once more, for the subconscious/unconscious behaviors that have been repeatedly played out in our relationships. It can feel like we are at the mercy of them at times; these things have been with us since birth, taught to us as children, and reaffirmed in the media - it’s a weird form of comfortable tradition.
As we know, it’s not entirely easy to break free from the familiarity and even safety of how we usually show up and perhaps sabotage relationships. Saturn stands firm like a brick wall that suddenly pops up on our path so that we don’t ignore the capability we do POSSESS to take responsibility for our relationship habits.
And yeah - it’s going to be a long road - put we have to show up for it if we stand any chance to heal and release ourselves from karmic debt. It may not be Libra fair - but it’s what must be accepted.
We can no longer hide from, avoid or diminish the pain we’ve inflicted upon others when we’ve acted from the blind unconscious space. We can no longer hide from our own pain and say “woe is me”. And yes - it may not feel very fair because the task at hand is large, complex and not directly created by us. And yet - it SO does not feel great to be under the thumb of this bullshit does it? So we show up, the best we can - without the pressure of perfect, please. But committed to the sustained work of a lifetime.
We have the potential under this Full Moon to “mend fences” by extending an apology, owning up to our role, sharing more of our love, attention ..time - intimacy and understanding. This may be a ceremony that we only witness or decide upon within ourselves. If we feel ready, we may invite another.
The Full Moon in Libra opposes Chiron (the Wounded Healer) and the newly invoked Sun - kicking off Aries Season, the Zodiac New Year - the Spring Equinox. Due to the Mercury Rx period - we may not feel fully Aries fire power mode until the second half of the Season - so don’t be too hard on yourself if you’re not feeling the ignition right away.
Chiron in Aries is a several years long transit anchoring in healing wounds around Autonomy and Existence. Aries is driven by Desire, Identity, Passion - owning our personal brand of focused Wanting As the Sun shines and speaks with the Moon we are working on that alignment with the Self to align with the Other in a more productive, conducive, vital way.
The Lovers may want to blast shooting stars in each other’s directions to sever the bond or come to together in heat - but resolution, healing connection, and maturity all sit at the same table with them negotiating the terms with equal power.
Pluto & Saturn are building into a full conjunction in Capricorn January 2020 which will be pretty epic in transforming our relationship to power and authority. For now Pluto is working with the South Node - we do have to confront the “darkness” of our past in order to reach our light. You can see this play out in the collective with the media covering and debating through the various horrible and violent offenses in our world, even the atmospheric ones, that have “shocked” & terrified us. We can’t afford to avoid and pretend like we don’t have to atone for our ancestors, and the systems we uphold because of the well oiled machine we operate.
And the same can be applied to our personal relationships. We’ve all experienced not so great relationships - sometimes we hold onto the personal trauma (even if they were “mini”) way deep down inside of our psyches - thinking we’ve dealt with them - but the truth reveals itself when we enter into the next relationship and brush up against …something.
We need not be hostages to our past - but rather to be stewards in the evolution of it.
Past Origin of Shame + Guilt + Fear intertwined with our Identity can create a Desire for Power + Authority + Control.
Healed Origin of Acceptance + Responsibility + Trust unified with our Identity can create an empowered environment of Conviction + Guardianship + Agency.
Working with the Relationship theme of this Full Moon involves two Goddess Asteroids. Ceres in Sagittarius opposes Juno in Gemini. Ceres is the Goddess Asteroid symbolizing Nourishment/Nurturance, Abundance/Loss Cycles, Needs of Security/Safety. Juno symbolizes Marriage, Intimate Bonding/Needs, Equal Partnership/Rights.
Ceres in Sag speaks to being nourished by relationships that foster growth and expose us to experiences that we may not normally get to have on our own. Juno in Gemini speaks to a need to talk, communicate, and play with Curiosity with our partners; to be in a multidimensional way with them.
Ceres in Sag can also show us what beliefs we are locked into about relationships that keep us from growth. Juno in Gemini can shows us that how we speak to each other matters.
We can see how this helps us further narrow into our Relationship needs: how much we need to communicate and which type of experiences really produce growth.
Demetra George says this so well in her book Asteroid Goddesses about Juno and Ceres Natal connections “Therapy can be helpful in reconditioning the subconscious images and social imprinting that keep us locked in old response patterns. In this way one can meet the challenge of creating nurturing and supportive relationships denoted by Ceres - Juno aspects.”
We seriously are being called to lock in our non negotiable need for Nourishing and Expansive forms of relating. Bottom line; we DO need Relationships just as much as we require Autonomy - but we need relationships that support one and other’s evolution, success, and healing.
There are some things we will find we have an “unconditional” mindset towards, and other things we will have “conditional” response about. This is called compromise.
Juno in Gemini may have alerted you towards your desire for more frequent communications with your lover - but your Lover really needs some space and time to decompress after work. Ceres in Sagittarius may have altered your need for more real life experiences & adventures with your Lover but perhaps physical ability is limited, or money/resources are a concern and instead of the grand adventure in Budapest - you travel to a quaint accessible Canadian town for a weekend first.
This is not about “taking what you can get” or “settling” - this is about collaboration.
The Full Moon at 0º of Libra is a powerful degree for a Full Moon to happen - and to kick off Aries season. 0º is known as a “critical” point - it is the undiluted, full embodied archetype of the sign - in this case Libra - this is why Relationships, Harmonic Aesthetics, Justice & Balance are so so bright in the air.
You’ll see a lot of media reflecting the need for Justice and likely for balance, temperance within the political system.
In your personal relationships - it’s like you’ll want to start the refresh/restart button - but in a “healthy” way - as in not
“forgetting” or side stepping the past incarnation of it but by acknowledging it and saying “okay now - where do we take this from here?”.
The next month will reveal where fresh starts, new beginnings are possible with Libra at the helm. Take a look at your Natal chart to see which house (area of life) will be at the very focal point for you in addition to this collective Relationship anchor.
For instance, I have this in my 1st House of Self, Identity, Drive, Action meaning Aries is in my 7th House of Partnerships. I am fully living this Me - We faculty I have described above. My fresh start & revitalization lies in establishing Self Assuredness. Insecurity will always be present but when I show up in Partnerships the insecurity is not the one that should be at the helm - dictating my direction which can only lead towards a deserted island of regret. What I am Sure about, Firm about, Solid about, what I feel Sound “should” be what’s sailing me so that I reach mutual & hospitable conditions.
So that’s what I’ve got for you with this Full Moon babes, I hope you found this valuable.
We will experience a second Libra Full Moon next month at the last degree of the sign, driving this experience home even more. Allow your growth in Relationships really settle into your psyche by taking action that affirms and validates it’s realness. Know that next month will illuminate and bring even more opportunity for you wherever Libra resides.
