Happy Spring! The Libra full Moon occurs on March 27, 2013 at 2:28 am PDT/ 5:28 am EDT/ 9:28 am GMT. This is the first full Moon of the astrological year, sacred to many traditions.
The Sun is in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac and of Spring Equinox. Like the season of spring, the Sun in Aries heralds the arrival of the dawn, the beginning of a new cycle of life. Bold, courageous, inquisitive, Aries’ energy wants to ignite our creativity. It’s primal fire after all! The Full Moon is in the opposite sign of Libra, the sign of the harvest at Autumn Equinox. This Libra Moon takes in Aries’ youthful fire and desire for life and reflects back the awareness that the fire must be shared with others, that it be used responsibly. The cosmic dance of Self and Other gets played out in this first, sacred Full Moon of the year.
At this full Moon, Venus, Uranus and Mars join the Aries Sun in opposing the Libra Moon. The Moon reflects back to each of them their essence, what their needs and desires are. The Sun, Mars and Venus have just emerged out of the Piscean collective unconscious ready for renewal and action. Our sense of identity (the Sun), our desires (Mars) and our heart wisdom (Venus) have been dissolved and renewed. At this moment of rebirth, they can become one.
Our Ostara meditation encourages us to wake up and ‘become what we love’. That’s a perfect way to express the combined Venus, Sun, Uranus and Mars energy in Aries. Aries shapes our identity through how we use its primal fire, so shape yourself for your most soulful future. When these four archetypal energies combine, they can awaken us to our freedom to do just that—become what we love.
Until Next Time,
