Can you feel that? There’s something in the wind, and it feels as though, change isn’t too far behind. March is supercharged with a number of celestial energies, but on March 20, the very same day as the vernal equinox, the universe is gifting us with a majestic lunation, ruled by none other than gorgeous Venus, planet of love and beauty. Truth is, the phases of mother moon communicate with us and through us, but when la luna illuminates the night sky at her peak, the seeds we planted during the new moon phase are at full bloom. Bask in the moonlight, and ask the goddess of the moon to rejuvenate your spirit. This is a celebration from the heavens and a collective culmination, as we are given the opportunity to reflect on our growth and progress. In the end, the full moon phase is a symbol of completion, fertility, and spiritual abundance.
However, despite the alluring and ever-glowing presence of the full moon, it’s important to find an outlet where you can release emotional tension. Remember, the moon is a symbol of our inner world, and when she beams at her fullest potential, our emotions become heightened. Dance under her mystical presence, and celebrate all that you’ve manifested. Write your thoughts in a paper and burn it as part of a releasing ceremony. Charge your crystals, and take full advantage of the electric sky. Approach your shadow self with no judgment, as there is no need to be afraid. Acknowledge your repressed feels, and try to understand why they’re resurfacing. Mother moon is our loyal companion, so let your intuition be your guide. In the meantime, think back to the new moon in Libra that took place on October 8, 2018. This is a time to regain your power, and reap all that you’ve sown.
Given that March 20 marks the first day of Aries season, this magical full moon will be taking place in the sign of the scales. Now, this might sound like a coincidence, given Libra’s astrological symbolism, but the full moon is a call for balance, and this is because when the moon is full, it is traveling on the opposite side of the sun. For instance, Aries is Libra’s polar opposite and vice versa; however, both of these energies go hand-in-hand, as they are located on the same astrological axis: the ego and the relation of the self to other people. With that said, what’s evolved in regard to your relationships since October of last year? How are you integrating yourself into the lives of others, and vice versa? Where have you gained balance, and learned how to compromise? If none of the above pertains to you, please do not feel discouraged, as lunations are unique to everyone.
Libra is a representation of balance, codependency, equality, harmony, and justice. Its cardinal air is kind, light-hearted, and diplomatic. This charming air sign marks the halfway point in the zodiac wheel, and its season occurs during the Fall Equinox when it becomes time to understand both sides of the story. Interestingly enough, that is the very same essence of this lunation, except this time, we are being reborn in the spring. However, in the midst of Mercury retrograde, and Uranus’ recent shift into slow-moving Taurus, this lunation might not be as harmonious as we’d like it to be. For starters, the energy of Mercury retrograde will likely spark confusion and a number of misunderstandings, but it doesn’t end there. The sun and the moon’s planetary ruler (Mars and Venus) will be making a square to one another, which in turn can spark tension between male and female energies.
Nevertheless, despite the super-charged energies swirling during this full moon, it’s important to remember one thing: Full moons are a cosmic culmination from the heavens. Therefore, this is a time to reflect on your progress, and bask in la luna’s glimmering light. On that note, see your full moon in Libra horoscope and reflection below:
Cheers to another trip around the sun, Aries! This full moon is extra special as it will illuminate the night sky on the first day of your birthday season.

What needs fixing, Taurus? With la luna shaking up your responsible sixth house of health, physicality, and day-to-day details, your current routine and physical well being will be highlighted during this time.

Who knows, you might decide to revamp your entire workstation. *Reflect on the following, Taurus: Are you living a healthy and balanced lifestyle?

Who knows, some of you could be feeling really indecisive about something, and voila! However, given that this area of your chart is ruled by Mercury the messenger, this retrograde cycle could very well spark a possible negotiation with a sibling, or close relative. *Reflect on the following, Leo: Have you been communicating with an open mind? Have you reached a compromise with a sibling, or perhaps someone in your immediate circle?*

With la luna in your sign, you could suddenly get the urge to break free, whether be creatively, or emotionally. One thing’s for sure: there’s a whole lot coming to the surface for you these days, so make sure to stay balanced. Themes related to your sense of self and partnerships will be emphasized during this time. Although, for some, this lunation could also be the beginning of a revolution, in regard to your shared resources, and intimate unions. *Reflect on the following, Libra: Are you being true to your heart’s desires? When was the last time you put yourself first?*

How are you practicing mindfulness?*
