April 7: Full moon in Libra

April 7: Full moon in Libra

Radical ideas and measures


Mars is square Uranus at 11:50 a.m.

 Yesterday’s rallying air trine may be put to the test today with Mars in Aquarius coming into a triggering square aspect with Uranus in Taurus. These planetary forces are both hard to manage on their own, but coming together in a challenging aspect catalyzes their positions and makes these particularly volatile. Mars is the planet of battle and action, where Uranus is the planet of shock and surprises—together, they could represent the swift implementation of radical ideas and measures that are needed in these urgent times. This aspect may also represent some sudden and unforeseen challenges that present a setback in progress of some kind. It will be important to stay calm, and not contribute irrationality to the moment so that we can better adapt and flow with any new developments upon us now.


Mercury is sextile Pluto at 2:28 p.m., and Jupiter at 7:20 p.m.

Mercury in intuitive and empathic Pisces forms a supportive sextile aspect with Pluto in Capricorn in the late afternoon, opening communication to address the potent regeneration happening in our personal, and collective sphere. Because the sextile aspect is harmonious, it supports constructive thought and communications around very sobering topics. By the evening, Mercury shifts into forming this sextile with Jupiter in Capricorn, again, highlighting emotionally aware yet constructive communications.

Full moon in Libra at 7:35 p.m.

Shortly after Mercury’s connection with Jupiter, the moon becomes full in Libra, punctuating the peak of this month’s lunar forces. The Libra full moon is lighting up a certain house in everyone’s birth chart, and so symbolizes an area of life that has reached a new level of renewal and reinvention since the Libra new moon in late September 2019. Libra is the sign of the scales, and so represents balance, fairness, and justice, but also, peace. This full moon reminds us all tonight to connect with calm and equanimous emotions.
