A full Moon in Libra is often ideal for promoting harmony, peace and equality in relationships, but this one may highlight the more challenging aspects inherent in the sign: judgment of self and others. Get ready for your internal Judge Judy to weigh in on significant relationships during this lunation.
Libra is the archetype of Justice, usually depicted by scales, and behind those scales often sits a judge. There is much weighing and considering of the evidence before a decision can be made. The positive side of Libra is the ability to stand back and look at both sides of a situation before rushing to any kind of premature conclusion. The negative side is that indecision and fear of commitment can be endless.
Another huge Libra theme is the whole “compare and despair” debacle as those with heavy Libra planets will attest (especially when Libra is on your ascendant). Add to this the fact that Saturn -- the cosmic taskmaster -- is in his final months of inhabiting the fair stars of Libra, and it’s clear that many relationship issues surrounding injustice are about to reach a fever pitch. There are only six months left to commit or quit and make any final adjustments to break negative relationship patterns and karma, once and for all. (Well, at least for another 29.5 years when Saturn will return to Libra!)
Like it or not, there will be plenty of internal chatter going on now that the ruler of Libra, Venus, is ensconced in the chatty sign of Gemini. Opinions and gossip galore may run rampant during this airy full Moon. Oh, and good luck getting any of the internal committees to quit their chiming now that Mercury is freshly out of retrograde and moving full speed ahead.
Are you being treated fairly? Has passive-aggressive behavior replaced honest and bold communication? Do you look too much for your self-worth in the reflection of the other? Do you treat yourself the way you want to be treated? Do you worry that your mate has eyes for the proverbial “other woman’ that the Libra mythology (famous for love triangles) often constellates? Are you overly dependent on your partner and not progressing in your own life?
These are the kind of questions this full Moon will trigger. Let your relationships be an honest mirror instead of a pacifier or blindfold, and you will do justice to this fair lunation.
