The Moon will reach its peak fullness in Libra on Sunday March 28, 2021 at 2:48 pm EDT, but its energies are powerful throughout the weekend.  This Full Moon is a SuperMoon, being at perigee or its closest point to the Earth.  There is some evidence that a Supermoon has a stronger effect on the tides and geophysical events such as storms, earthquakes and the like. Personally, I experience the Supermoons as being much more intense and I tend not to sleep under their influence.

In any case, this weekend’s Libra Full Moon coincides with the conjunction of the Sun and Venus in the sign of Aries, the opposite sign to Libra. This is what’s called the “superior” conjunction of the Sun and Venus, when Venus is at its furthest point from Earth, and it is the midpoint of the Sun/Venus cycle, just as the Full Moon is the midpoint of the Sun/Moon cycle.  There is a sense here of culmination and release in Venus-related themes: self-esteem, what we value, how we feel about our attractiveness, our ability to love, our desire to connect.  The fact that the Sun and Venus are in a tight conjunction to Chiron’s drawing out of the wounds for healing suggests a powerful opportunity to let go of destructive patterns, even if they are deeply entrenched to the point where they seem to be our very nature.

The lunar cycle is symbolic of the dance between our conscious awareness and the inner world of the emotions, a polarity which requires balance and integration just as all polarities in astrology do.  The entire wheel of the zodiac is a system of polarities, in which each pair of signs represent oppositional forces that require balance and integration.  That is particularly true when the Moon is in Libra, the sign that more than any other embodies this dance.  Libra seeks a harmonious truce between the conflicting forces which keep us from experiencing true ease and relaxation, and that is the theme to embrace this weekend. ❤️
