Ordinarily the Full Moon at 17° 23′ Libra on 6 April 2012, 12:20 PM PDT, favors sitting down to talk over relationship issues with your partner but not this one. Unfortunately lovely Venus in Gemini squares an uncomfortable Mars in Virgo and both are involved in a T-Square with elusive Neptune. Between uncertain tempers, jealousy and a good possibility that the facts will be in short supply, resolving differences is NOT going to be easy.
Libra’s ruler, Venus, leaves easy going Taurus for Gemini on 3 April and is on her way to an exact sextile to Uranus in Aries on 9 April. Venus in Gemini has an edgy, brilliance to her and is more interested in playing the field than settling down. Uranus will amplify the desire to remain free and independent. Given Venus’s need to be adored and the square to Neptune in empathetic Pisces, the number of little “white” lies is bound to multiply . . . eroding trust and honesty in relationships. Sure, you can say you only lied to spare someone’s feelings but please consider being honest. As long as Saturn remains in Libra, chances are behaving badly towards our partners will result in instant karma.
By the way, Saturn in Libra is inconjunct a newly direct Mercury in Pisces and making it tough to determine whether or not we’re coming across the way we hope to. We may think we are getting our point across only to be greeted with a look of total incomprehension. Under this influence it will be very easy to misinterpret a well meaning comment, so carefully prepare your remarks before opening your mouth.
And then there’s Mars in Virgo . . . a week away from stationing direct and moving at a crawl, a guarantee he is not a happy camper. He’s under pressure from a very irritating inconjunct from pushy Uranus in Aries and feeling painfully out of sync with lovely Venus in Gemini. The only pleasant influence is the opposition to Neptune in Pisces who may encourage him to take refuge in la la land. Time to hang up the “gone fishing” sign and head out the door.
I have the feeling neither Libra nor Aries are going to enjoy this Full Moon . . .
The Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra form awkward aspects to Jupiter in Taurus, creating an atmosphere where exaggerations will be commonplace and may lead to emotional drama, both in the collective and in our personal interactions. Take your time to collect as much information as possible and consider it carefully before making decisions.
Thankfully Pluto in Capricorn only plays a very minor role here. The slowly waxing sextile to Chiron in Pisces encourages us to go deep within to relax our grip on old obsessions linked to past injuries. Pluto’s influence will return to center stage in late May and June.
Perhaps the best way to navigate this Libra Full Moon is to do our best not to rush to judgment. Use tact and kindness in our conversations with loved ones and avoid finger pointing, etc. Not a bad time to listen more and speak less either. You can also do as I do and keep telling yourself this too shall pass! *grin*
On a personal note: Yippee skippee, my natal Venus in Sagittarius creates a Grand Cross with the T-Square of Venus, Neptune and Mars. I can’t decide whether to laugh or cry because I’m pretty sure with Neptune involved I won’t know what’s what until the fog lifts. One of those times I’m grateful to be an old broad with years of Saturn’s lessons on impulse control behind me. Speaking of Saturn, he’s now off my Chiron and will be a diminishing influence for several months. Oh, he’ll be back to bug me once more in September but until then I can focus on other things.
