If there ever was a time to get serious about agreeing to disagree, this Full Moon at 06° 52′ Libra on 27 March 2013, 02:28 AM PDT is it. Maintaining a sense of perspective promises to be a real challenge.
For those of us who prefer peace and harmony, it may be better to dwell on the Libra Moon side of things. The Moon represents our feeling nature and in Libra she prefers to surround herself with beauty and civilized conversation. An inconjunct to both Mercury and Neptune in sensitive Pisces underscores the need to keep the tone upbeat and gentle. Rude, obnoxious sorts will be asked to leave the premises.
Venus, Libra’s ruler, exactly conjoins the Aries Sun and whilst Venus is outgoing and adventurous in Aries she still softens Aries stridency to a degree. Uranus in Aries is also conjunct the Sun, a far more unpredictable influence. However, the Libra Moon is still willing to invite these three to her party because she knows Uranus always keeps things interesting and stimulates the creative flow.
The stressful side of this Full Moon comes from Mars, Aries’ ruler, who is currently at home in Aries. Direct, forceful and forthright, Mars in Aries is still within shouting distance of Uranus though, in my opinion, is far enough ahead of the Sun we have more say in how we express our anger. Those with personal planets and the Ascendant from 8° to 11° in the cardinal signs however may not escape so easily. The desire to push ahead at all costs may be very powerful.
Mars is right in the thick of the action with aspects to Jupiter in Gemini, Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn. He is part of a Yod with Saturn in Scorpio at the apex and is sextile Jupiter in Gemini for the base. The square to Pluto in Capricorn further complicates matters. The Yod comprised of Saturn sextile Pluto with both inconjunct Jupiter is also in effect. All of these add up to why I started off this post by suggesting agreeing to disagree on this Full Moon is a good idea.
So many inconjuncts make finding common ground nigh into impossible to find, so rather than beating our collective heads against the brick wall of other people’s incomprehension we might as well sit this one out. Very few will be willing to listen anyway and having Mercury in Pisces square Jupiter in Gemini just adds to the confusion. Philosophical differences (Mars and Jupiter) are pitted against practicalities (Saturn and Pluto) . . . discuss politics and religion at your own peril.
With all those planets in Aries stirring the pot and bringing tempers to a boil, it is a good time to contemplate anger management. When we get angry do we claim our anger or point to something or someone else as the cause? If we claim our anger we stand a far better chance of dealing with it in a constructive manner. The string of squares to Pluto in Capricorn starting with Mars the day before the Full Moon and both Venus and the Sun on Easter Sunday after it bring control issues to the forefront. Are we mad at ourselves for choices we’ve made or do we feel like it is all someone else’s fault? Something worth taking a look at in my opinion.
This was not the easiest lunation to write about because peaceful soul that I am, I wanted to see if I could find something hopeful to say. As a Libra, I usually love this Full Moon and it was hard to see all the stressful aspects in this chart. If I have succeeded in bringing a little light into the picture, then I am happy. Choose peace and practice kindness, people!
On a personal note: The lunation axis aligns with my fifth-eleventh house cusps. The Sun is on the fifth and the Moon the eleventh. My place in my social circles and creativity are highlighted. Nice!
The stressful patterns revolving around Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto connect to my twelfth house Part of Fortune whilst Uranus in Aries is trine my natal Saturn. Looks like I make my own fortune through hard work . . . what else is new!
