Restoring Balance and Integrity in All Relationships
The Libra Full Moon takes place on April 6, 2023, at ~12:34 am ET in the element of Air.
The beautiful full, pink moon in the sign of Libra is the first full moon of Spring!
Full moons are the energetic peaks of each lunar cycle, giving us an extra boost of energy and a chance to reflect on the momentum we’ve been building around our new moon intentions. Full moons are also a great time for cleaning and clearing energy (Anyone else feeling the urge for some Spring cleaning? (Or Fall clearing?)) and reflecting on what has and hasn’t been working for us.
With this full moon in Libra, we are called to bring peace and harmony to all of our relationships. We may find ourselves making amends with loved ones, negotiating terms that feel fair for everyone involved, or healing lingering issues in our partnership. Libra is a sign that helps us see both sides of the coin, allowing for diplomacy and mediation.
Full moons also invite us to find a balance between the archetypal attributes associated with the signs that the sun and moon are currently in. In this lunation, we see the sun in Aries, an archetype known for being assertive, independent, and self-motivated. Complementary to that, we find the moon in Libra, an archetype that governs justice, balance, exchange, and relationships. The balance between these two archetypes may look like learning how to be assertive while still being considerate of others or promoting harmony in relationships without sacrificing who we are.
This full moon in Libra encourages us to promote harmony in our relationships with a balanced perspective.
Libra, symbolized by The Balancing Scales and ruled by the Justice card in tarot, reminds us that integrity and fairness are necessary for the greater good.
While the air sign of Libra loves to connect with others and have harmonious relationships, how this is achieved is very important.
We need to strike a balance between putting ourselves first and considering the needs of others. The Libra archetype is naturally peaceful and compromising. However, if left unchecked, this energy can leave Libra always putting others first, spreading themselves too thin, and letting others outshine them.
This full moon allows us to consider where we must restore balance. Are we being fair to ourselves? Could we benefit from being more compromising in certain relationships? What boundaries do we have within our relationships that preserve and protect what's important?
Integrity allows us to feel centered, whole, and complete. Integrity is a vital part of maintaining harmonious relationships. When we practice living with integrity we practice making sure our words, intentions, and actions are in alignment as best we can. The benefits of integrity involve preventing frustration, resentment, and disappointment for ourselves and others.
With this full moon, let’s ask ourselves, where can we have more integrity in our relationships? Let’s practice saying what we mean and meaning what we say this lunation, and hopefully have some heart-to-heart conversations.
Here are some prompts to pull cards for or journal about (or both!) to help you reflect with this full moon.
No matter how your personal astrology interacts with these signs, it's a good time to reflect on these themes of fairness, harmony, integrity, and finding balance in relationships.
- What am I ready to release?
- What am I ready to express, and to whom?
- Where can I have more integrity in my relationships?
- What boundaries do I have within my relationships that preserve and protect what’s important?
- What do I need for my relationships to feel more balanced? (e.g., mutuality, compromise, assertiveness, etc.)
- What do I love about myself? What do I love about my relationships with others?
As always, take your time answering and reflecting upon these questions – you can revisit them throughout the year and beyond this full moon.
We invite you to reflect on these questions and the theme of this full moon in our Cycles Notebook! As part of our Aries Season Celebration sale, our community-fave Cycles Notebook (a blank + lined journal for expansion) is now 30% off until April 10th.
May this full pink moon illuminate what serves you best and encourage harmony in all your relationships <3
