“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.”
-- Thomas Merton
The full Moon in the sign of justice, but there is nothing harmonious, balanced or even keel about this lunar influence. In fact, it’s a bit explosive and highly polarizing due to all of the tug-of-war energies going on with opposite sign: Aries. We’re feeling torn between our need for relationship, peace and connection versus our need for independence, individualism and being right. Which side of the fence are you on?
You will find out where you fall in the line between giving and taking. Any co-dependent tendencies are about to be busted under this influence. If you’ve lost yourself in an “other” whether that be a lover, boss, job, project, family member or any outer attachment that you’ve managed to lose yourself in, now is the time to take yourself back.
The best part of this full Moon is that communication is flowing and nothing is being held back. We’re all feeling fearless about expressing what we want and what we need. The only problem is that everyone is feeling torn between the need to stay related and the need to break ties.
The ideal scenario in balancing these polarities is to remain true to self while negotiating the terms and boundaries of the relationship contract with another. Relationships are ruled by Libra and remind us that in order for equality, peace and harmony to prevail, the needs and terms of each individual must be honored. Use this powerful lunation to practice the art of relationship -- first to self and then to others.
