e find ourselves in a place of perfect opportunity with the upcoming April FullMoon. A large portion of the world is housebound and facing the foretold challenge of social turbulence and material scarcity. Little did we know it would take the form of a virus and toilet paper shortages. Since March’s Full Moon we experienced the joyous celebration of the Spring Equinox Ostara Sabbat where sowed blessed seed for the coming season.
Libra’s motto is “I balance & weigh” with the purpose to take the Measure of our Souls. The archetype is the Judge. Keywords are conscience, cooperation, equality, diplomacy, intelligence, balance, perfectionist and adaptable.
Libra teaches us arriving at mindful, deliberate and well-thought-out decisions taking into account all angles will bring about a successful future. It is a strange time and feels a bit surreal, sort of like the dust settling after a long storm. Our planet has been bombarded with the actions of humans and as humans, we are bombarded by the energies of others. In this we must take care to not let other’s feelings, emotions, anxieties and panic affect ourselves and our actions. It is also the perfect time to tune into ourselves with crystal clarity whilst a large majority of people are at home and the world grows quiet. We can see the effects in the climate with animals around the world returning to old spawning/mating grounds, seismologists have noted fewer rumblings almost immediately, less air pollution=improved air quality, less noise pollution above ground and in the oceans. This list goes on, proving that the world would do well from a break from human activity bombardment for a month each year.
The combination of Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra sends our inner flame outward in the pursuit of understanding spiritual truths impacting our thoughts and behaviors. Albert Einstein correctly surmised, “The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” It is the walk of the Spiritual Warrior that is called upon now to change our world through changing our thinking, which in turn changes our actions. Adapting to thrive beyond survival in challenging times and directing our inner flame with honed precision requires honesty, integrity, reflection and intentional purpose that gives power to our walk.
During this Libran Full Moon the influence of aspected Mars in conjunction with Saturn, Uranian impulsivity and Mercury in close sextile to the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction will push us to look closely at our deepest soul and heart level intentions currently manifesting itself in our lives, spell workings and spiritual practices. It is time to scry by Aries fire and recognize these truths. The Libran thoughts connected with Venus heart centered understanding will feel different from others as thoughts that arise from our soul, heart and mind being aligned will be accompanied with a solid knowing. These thought feelings will be known by the warmth felt throughout your body from top to bottom, your senses will be heightened and you will have a sense of its rightness and purity as in the ringing of a struck piece of crystal.
The areas where we have resistance, fear or avoidance will also point to future areas that need to be addressed during the dark of the moon, so make note of these as well.
This Full Moon will require the oftentimes difficult aspect of putting oneself first and forefront. There is often a lot of resistance to this within ourselves as we are frequently led to believe putting ourselves first is a selfish act. Self-care is not a selfish act, but one of required maintenance to grow as a person and be healthy for ourselves and others. We are part of a larger whole, which is only as healthy as its parts. The most healthy act a person can do is the caretaking of self and meeting your own needs in order to manifest a healthy unit. This Libra esbat will give us the energy needed to take back the power that flows through our veins handed down through our ancestral roots and lifetimes past. Let the truth of your inner self, your magic and your life’s purpose rise to the top and forefront of your awareness so that you can walk in your power.
During this time we are in a unique position to affect lasting change and weave magic into the world unlike ever before. We are calling on the power of witches, pagans, shamans, healers and spiritualists to join forces and weave magic in the fabric of our everyday reality while bringing forth balance and harmony.
Starting on April 8th at sundown, each person will enact their own rite and light a candle (preferably a 7 day if you have it). The wave of energy will be sent around our planet for a full 24 hours and continue as long as our candles burn.
