full moon in libra- restoring the Sacred Balance of Life (4/16/22)

by | Apr 15, 2022 | Lunar Insight

the full moon at 26’46 libra is exact on saturday, april 16th, 2022 at 11:55am PDT- making the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in aries conjunct chiron on march 31st. this is one intense lunar cycle with chiron shining a light on our wounding and healing journey with the masculine/ego/anger/will and this full moon triggering pluto and eris can definitely bring things to a boil and show us very clearly what is out of balance and no longer working.

libra is focused on relationships and partnerships so anything unresolved or on the back burner in partnerships (romantic, financial, business, political and more) can be in focus. but this is also about the sacred balance in our own lives and within our being- the masculine and feminine balance within that attracts and repels what is without.

the full moon square pluto brings up all the unresolved emotion- particularly if we tend to sweep things under the carpet to keep the peace at any cost. the full moon opposite eris can add more fuel to the eris fire- with rage, chaos, discord, conflict exacerbated. we would all do well to have deep practices to turn to when working with anger and rage. we don’t want to stuff it (or sweep it under the carpet) but we also don’t want to act or react in it impulsively or unconsciously. balance is key!

luckily saturn is trine the full moon- so if we can rise above to get some masterful perspective we can be supported in finding a better balance in our lives. saturn shows us what we MUST deal with- and with his conjunct to juno an asteroid about partnership and commitment- we have even more focus on relationships. get real moments about what is working and what is not can be present. discerning if something can be worked with, healed and transformed versus what can only heal by being full let go of and released is required right now.

eris is actually with pallas athena this week- and leading up to his full moon we have had a triple conjunction of sun/eris/pallas forming with all of them quincunx the karmic south node. eris gets a bad rap- called the Goddess of Discord and Chaos- but she actually has some really benevolent qualities. it’s just that her medicine is not sweet- it’s sour, spicy- it makes you gag. it tastes crappy going down but it can be very healing medicine if we use it wisely. eris reveals what is concealed and she pulls the carpet out from underneath us to show us what we have swept under it. the chaos and discord that comes with her is not so much created by her as it is REVEALED by her. she shows us what we have not been looking at. what we have denied, avoided, or hidden from.

with pallas involved i am personally concerned about escalation of war in ukraine. i highly recommend we all use this full moon in libra to visualize peace AND to deal with what is in the shadow that makes it so we cannot find or create peace. the powers of manifestation are not a magic trick. we set our intention yes but we also follow that up with conscious action. the Universe always prefers when we co-create with it ;)

with the full moon also quincunx jupiter and neptune- we need to beware of being all Love and Light so as to avoid facing the shadow. Love and Light are a force for healing in the world. True Love and Light has the capacity to face fear and shadow. shadow jupiter/neptune can amplify tendencies to bury our heads in the sand and just not want to look and see reality- in ourselves, in others, in the world around. we need our eyes AND our hearts wide open.

there is an interesting alignment happening with the north node of destiny. we have it conjunct capulus- the fixed star in perseus that has to do with male, sexual and/or aggressive energy. he is the one that cut of the head of medusa (we will be learning A LOT about this myth in stargate mystery school that starts on april 19th- more info here- https://divineharmony.com/stargate-mystery-school/ )

the north node is also conjunct asteroid phaethon- which can speak to feeling out of control and taking on more than we can handle. mythologically phaeton was the son of the sun and and he had immense pride and ego- he drove the chariot of the sun and did not know how to handle it or control the horses. he ended up destroyed the earth with terrible fires, smoke and destruction.

so we have a north node of destiny linking with two masculine archetypes that can wreak havoc- aggressive capulus and destructive phaethon. and keep in mind this is a lunar cycle that began with the new moon conjunct chiron- the wounded healer in the sign of mars, highlighting what is wounded and toxic in our collective expression of the masculine principle. what pretty much sums this up for me is the war in ukraine.

let’s add one more mythological character to the mix- pallas and eris are conjunct sisyphus. he is the guy who got punished and had to push a giant boulder up a hill. every time he almost go to the top the boulder would fall back down and he would have to start all over again. this is an asteroid that speaks to karmic patterns that seem to cycle round and round with no resolution. and asteroid toro to this- machismo, bullying, intimidation- and i am seeing way too much wounded masculine archetypal energy come to a head in this full moon.

all planets are direct! all planets are moving fast but the sun. pluto stations retrograde in 12 days- but has not slowed his speed yet. he is also parallel the solar eclipse degree from december 2021.

i have said this a thousand times and i will say it many thousands of times more- WE NEED THE FEMININE TO LEAD. the destructive wounded masculine principle has us precariously close to world war 3. weapons of mass destruction would not even been allowed to be created if the feminine principle was leading (women AND all beings men/non-binary – that honor the feminine principle).

i was chatting with a friend the other day and i said that i really feel like women/beings with wombs need to lead by coming fully down and in (embodiment) and accessing and anchoring into their full power. a beautiful open heart with health boundaries and full embodiment is a force for profound change in the world! i think that for the wounded masculine to really truly heal- the wounded feminine who has been disembodied and living from heart chakra up needs to come all the way down and in.

this is how the feminine leads.

may this full moon serve your enlightenment and your embodiment!

blessed be…

Libra 27 A black leopard beneath a full moon

Feeling deeply connected with the animal instincts. Lavishly gifted with subtle tracker senses. Empowered to tap these subtle layers in all that we say and do.

We are super charged with a feeling tone of resonance, of synchronicity, of each and every aspect of existence interpenetrating all the others and inwardly involved with the whole. Fascinated and compelled to sit back and witness how it all unfolds. Just seeing it, knowing it, sensing it inside. Nothing to be done on the outside.

A feeling underneath of having no way around the fate of pure beholding, devoid of active dynamism. Especially devastatingly made to watch intently and avidly as whatever is most feared comes true, whatever is sought pulls away at the last moment.

A karmic predisposition to grapple with self intensively and to steer clear of further entanglements. It is as though the lessons were so thematic that there is no further room for fresh directions of destiny. The mountainous overlay of what went wrong keeps coming in to be cleared.

The need to find such resiliency of spirit that the lost instincts kick in and the core convictive feeling comes to the rescue. Without this, the bleak prospects seem unrelieved and too much to bear. Yet once the inner self comes alive, none of it is anything other than just what was asked, just what was needed.

An immense battle to believe in and trust the inward experience. So many reasons not to. Such a hard time getting there for self and being willing to be as vulnerable as the soul really feels when it has no place to hide.

Being relentlessly exposed to the substance of having gone far off the intended path. Being alerted to what it will take to shift directions. Being given great assistance and understanding.

KEYNOTE: A consciousness able to transcend the conflicts and pressures of the personal life.

This picture symbolizes the capacity, latent in every individual, to contemplate the stress of existence in our world of duality from a higher level. Through the use of his mind, backed by the efforts and struggles of past generations and the cooperation of other men, the individual can gain a new perspective on human problems and reach freedom and peace in a supernal realm of being.

This second stage symbol contrasts with the first, for while the first dealt with the cooperation between polarized energies, this one introduces us to the realm of unity beyond polarity. It is a stage of TRANSCENDENT REALIZATION.
