Astrological Forecast for This Full Moon
March 31, 2018, 5:38 AM, Pacific Time
(Special thanks to Patti Podgornik of The Celestial Garden for this fabulous post.)
This full moon in Libra, paired with Mercury retrograde, gives it an an intriguing twist. The full moon is typically a time of openness, brightness, and bustling activity. Mercury retrograde in Aries (the sign opposite Libra), changes things.
This full moon has the capacity to be more subdued. It’s a time of deeper reflection on what we’re feeling, what we’ve been and are experiencing, AND what we want – from our hearts – to be experiencing. If love isn’t the bottom line, then we haven’t gone deep enough.
Mercury retrograde in Aries adds a lot of fire power to this Moon. Although it’s more internal, be aware that many people will feel the need to let their pain and fear out onto others. There’s a lot of immature, bullying energy with this combination, a lot of ego energies combined with the need for control, and holding a vision to a standard of perfection that could be harmful.
The mature side of this is leadership that shines with passion, focus, principle, and the compassionate welfare of a society. Allow for visions to awaken that come from love. Let yourself be drawn to tools we can use for healing and for the highest good of a society.
Woven throughout this full moon phase are principles of love, uniqueness, diversity, wisdom, brilliance, tolerance, and kindness toward self and others. One message of this phase is to embrace and love the way we complete one another when we communicate and act from a place of brilliant universal love. Other messages are to honor the wisdom we each carry within us and to share from love. We are called to create balance, harmony, and equity, to recognize the unique soul and heart we each are, and to honor life.
We’re experiencing deep transformations that are shaking up our lives. We’re being called to hold the line, hold the space for love to awaken in more and more people. In many ways, this is a very Zen kind of love. It involves feeling the discomfort and sitting with the discomfort to heal the pain and trauma. It also involves allowing for the space of being love, as well as being with one another in love so we may know with clarity how to create a world that is kind, compassionate, and focused on life.
One of the great gifts of this full Moon is to embrace and act with the wisdom that there is room for all, that there is enough for all, that we can build/rebuild our world on the principles of universal love. We have the ability to create a loving vision from our hearts and wisdom. We can live together on this planet in a flowing, flexible harmony where we communicate with respect and tolerance with one another (and that includes the animals, plants, elements and all of nature).
This full moon’s highest vibration is that our ultimate guiding principles are those of life, creativity, transformation, respectful communication, love in general, and love in action.
We’re still also working with energies that are calling us to discover and express, through love, our unique purposes for being here at this time and place. Are we each willing to live beyond what has been considered “traditional” 3rd-dimensional living, and to become a physical representation of our highest, spiritual principles?
The overall combination of energies continue to push us to awaken to where we are no longer tolerant of things that hurt us, manipulate us, hurt our children, or hurt our Earth. We are also being pushed to awaken to where we are no longer tolerant of things that are inequitable, out of balance, keep us silent, and hold us in fear. This growing feeling of not being able to tolerate what hurts us could get intense for each of us. Breathe through the discomfort. Put your bare feet on the Earth and feel Her love for you. Do some kindness for another person, animal, the Earth, or an organization in need of support. These are just a few things that will help each of us on this path.
At the same time, there are other energies that are awakening us to what we truly are and draw us to an awareness of the veil of illusion. Once we’re aware of it, they call us to draw the veil aside and step through it into the real truth of the multi-verse. The sparkly, magical feeling we feel is the pull of love.
It all keeps spiraling around to love. Blessed Be.
