Happy Supermoon in Libra! This Super Full Moon becomes exact at 2:48 PM New York time (18:48 GMT) on Sunday, March 28.
As a reminder, a Supermoon occurs when the moon is physically closer to the Earth than usual, thus amplifying its effects. This is the fourth-closest Full Moon in 2021, and the first Supermoon of 2021.
We are just over a week into Aries season—the beginning of the Astrological New Year—and we are still are under a rare window when all planets are moving forward, making it an ideal time to move forward aggressively with projects and creations. With Mars conjunct the North Lunar Node (traveling Retrograde) in Gemini, we feel an unmistakable call to 'take a leap' and 'go for it!'--especially in matters relating to our soul's greater mission/Service Work on this planet (dharma).
If there was ever a time to shift careers or start a new soul-aligned business, right now would be it! With Venus sextiling Saturn, we can see long-term success in business deals and arrangements (investments, too) that are culminated over the next 28 days, or in a well-planned novel entrepreneurial endeavor.
In Aries season, we are feeling a sense of excitement, a desire to make progress, and a desire for newness. With Venus conjunct the sun in Aries, there is a sense of fire and passion in romantic relationships, and it's a lucky time to make moves in business and financial matters. It's a great time to meet someone new if you are single and looking; or to bring renewed passion (sun-Venus conjunction) and commitment (Venus-Saturn sextile) to an existing romantic relationship.
Libra is a cardinal air sign that is represented by scales, demonstrating the need for balance and harmony. This Libra Full Moon reminds us of the essential need in life to balance everything, including balance between the feminine and masculine energies (the yin and the yang), the inner and outer experiences of life, as well as the right and left brain hemispheres.
Ask yourself how balance fits into your life at the current moment and what you need to do to become more balanced in all ways. Ask yourself or, better yet, journal on these questions:
In what areas of my life am I underfocused? What do I need more of?
In what areas of my life am I overfocused? What do I need less of?
In what ways do I need to express more Divine Masculine energy (e.g. logic, grounding, pragmatism, physical exertion) in my life?
In what ways do I need to express more Divine Feminine energy (e.g. creativity, softness, intuition, artistic expression, 'go-with-the-flow attitude') in my life?
What aspects of the Shadow Masculine do I need to release from my expression of life (e.g. trying to control too much; stubbornness; suppressing/numbing emotions; being overractive/angry outbursts)?
What aspects of the Shadow Feminine do I need to release from my expression of life (e.g. codependency; martyrdom; being 'lost in the clouds'; fears of being seen/heard)?
In which moments of my life do I feel the most balanced and centered? What activities or rituals bring me into balance and centeredness? How could I apply that feeling of balance and centeredness to the other aspects of my life that tend to feel more off-kilter?
Which aspects of my 'outer' reality need more tender loving care at this time?
Which aspects of my inner world need more tender loving care at this time?
What moves/decisions would the most balanced version of me make over the next few months?
UNITY & HARMONY
Libra is very much concerned with the vibration of Unity. Libra seeks to create equilibrium wherever there is discordance. On a global scale, these Libra energies are assisting to create unity amongst people where there has been rivalry. Let's focus on how we can work together with others in greater harmony over the next 28 days and beyond. This Full Moon serves as a reminder to remember to put the ego aside when you feel it 'flaring up'. Focus on bringing a greater softness and harmony to the world and to your relationships with others.
We are all a part of One Unified Field of Consciousness. This Field of Consciousness is often referred to simply as 'The Field'. You have a tremendous effect on The Field, whether you are conscious of this fact or not. You are inseparable from it. It is not possible to be separate from The Field, for if one were to be separate, one would not exist.
Every thought, word, and action carries a vibration with it—and this vibration contributes energetically to The Field. There is no way to hide from it! This means that you—yes, you—carry a tremendous responsibility, once you have become conscious of the interconnected nature of all things.
With every loving thought, word, action, or intention you contribute to the acceleration of the Ascension and liberation of all life on Earth (including those who are asleep, animals, plants, and Gaia herself). With every self-destructive, hateful, or negative thought, word, action, or intention your contribution goes the other direction: in keeping Earth and her inhabitants imprisoned in an artificial vibration of divisiveness, greed, and sickness.
Now, my intention here is not to make you drive yourself nuts by monitoring your thoughts all the time. The truth is, it is a Universal Law that a positive thought is approximately one thousand times more powerful than a negative thought. So, there's really no need to worry about your negative thoughts. Your negative thoughts aren't actually powerful enough to make anything bad happen in your life, so you don't even need to bother listening to them. Treat them as if they are a nuisance or disturbance that you can actually just turn off, just like you'd turn off an alarm that's beeping incessantly.
What really matters are your intentions, words, and actions. It is through these three mechanisms that you are constantly utilizing the Divine Masculine 'Sword of Manifestation' to affect your personal life, the lives of others, and The Field. So by intending for a better world to come about, you are having a massively positive effect on The Field. I did a great Mastery Empowerment Course on this very topic called Change Your Reality by Changing Your Words. You can purchase it here.
With this Libra Supermoon opposing Venus conjunct Chiron and the sun, we have the opportunity for healing to occur in all relationships, including familial ones. Let's have a discussion on family dynamics from the soul level.
SOUL-LEVEL FAMILY DYNAMICS
Have you already heard of a thing called the Life Plan? Have you heard that you choose your parents, siblings, place of birth and even your future partners before you are born? This is all completely true! Before you come into the body, you are the soul. As the soul, you work with Spirit Guides, Angels, Ascended Masters, and other souls to intricately create your Life Plan. Where you are born, the parents you are born to, the gists of your relationships with those parents and any siblings, and your romantic partners are just a few of the things that are planned out pre-birth.
The intention of the Life Plan is to create the necessary situations that will give you the opportunity to negotiate the lessons your soul desires for you to work through. As you complete (or partially complete) each lesson, that experience gained contributes to the evolution of your soul and contributes to balancing/expanding your toroidal field.
The particular lessons your soul chooses to partake in in a given lifetime are directly related to karma accumulated by the soul in previous lifetimes. Negative karmic experiences create imbalances/deficiencies in the toroidal field that need to be balanced in that or another lifetime. The soul almost always wishes to directly experience the positive and negative aspects of all possible themes experienced. Sometimes this will create negative karma, and like a boomerang, the opportunity to balance that karma will come to you in a different lifetime, providing the opportunity for healing, balance, gain of wisdom, and eventually to teach or model that wisdom to others in some way.
On top of general karma from past lives that the soul wishes to balance in a particular lifetime, there is also specific karma that exists between particular souls. For example, you and your mother may have incarnated together many times, perhaps being sisters in one lifetime; friends in another; and husband and wife in yet another. To create a general example here for teaching purposes, let's say that there is a lot of karma carried over from the most recent incarnation where you and your mother incarnated together.
Let's say that in the most recent lifetime with your mother you actually played the role of husband and wife. Perhaps the character your soul was playing had left the character your mother's soul was playing and ran off with another woman. Perhaps your mother's soul's character felt betrayed. In this example, the memories of that relationship from that most recent lifetime would be stored in the backs of your chakras in this lifetime (all memories from other lifetimes are stored in the backs of your chakras).
Due to this karmic memory, perhaps in this lifetime your mom would be overbearing and overprotective of you because she would have a deep-seated fear of you betraying her. Perhaps she would get jealous of your partners. Perhaps she would act passive-aggressively or even manifest illnesses to see if you truly loved her and cared about her or if you would leave her like you did in the last lifetime.
This is just one general example of karma that could be carried over from another lifetime and play out between souls; the possibilities are endless when it comes to situations that may be played out between souls in other lifetimes that get karmically carried over into the current lifetime. One of my favorite parts of the work that I do is seeing what happened in past lives between souls and getting a sense of what's in the Soul Contract. I do this in my Soul Plan Readings.
You will know when there is significant past-life karma between yourself and a family member when you often have irrational emotional reactions to things that shouldn't logically cause such reactions (or they have those irrational reactions). You might intuitively feel that there is a deeper issue with a particular family member than just what has happened in this lifetime. Oftentimes there is significant past-life karma with those family members with whom we have had the most difficult relationships in this lifetime. (And ironically enough, those family members with whom we have had the most difficult relationships in this lifetime are usually the souls that we are closest to in the astral plan—likely a part of our Soul Group of twelve or our Monadic Group of 144 souls.)
The natural evolution of all relationships is toward resolution, whether it seems like it or not. Each soul desires not only to balance its 'personal' accumulated karma, but also the specific karma it carries with another soul. This karma can be worked out in the afterlife or other lifetimes if need be, but there is often the possibility for some sort of resolution to occur in the current lifetime. So even for those really difficult family relationships that seem like it will be impossible to resolve the relationship in this lifetime, there still is a chance that the opportunity will arrive in the future for some resolution to occur.
Sometimes, it requires one of the people involved going through a 'Dark Night of the Soul' for there to be a strong desire to change the relationship and to make amends. In other situations, there may not be resolution until one or both of the people involved are nearing the ends of their earthly incarnations. And sometimes, there just isn't any resolution that occurs while in the physical, and the resolution needs to be worked in the afterlife and/or other lifetimes.
Each relationship is entirely unique, and thus there isn't any one-size-fits-all approach that will heal every relationship. Sometimes, giving someone the benefit of the doubt and being willing to forgive and let go of what happened in the past leads to a renewed relationship that is supportive to both parties. Sometimes, however, a relationship isn't ready to move into a healthier stage of its evolution, and the best option for the well-being of both parties is for the relationship to at least temporarily end—and this includes family relationships. Sometimes, it will take a years of silence between parties before the resolution can occur.
Sometimes, a bit of separation is all a relationship needs to rebalance itself. You might argue constantly with your mom while you live with her, but when your job takes you out-of-state and you see her only once a year, all of a sudden you both might realize that your time together is precious and you both naturally let go of grievances against one another.
We learn most from the most difficult relationships. Those family members, partners, ex-partners, friends, bosses and co-workers that trigger us the most are inevitably helping us to negotiate our pre-planned Life Lessons. In the highest sense, these people playing frustrating roles in our lives are truly serving us. These most difficult relationships are giving you an opportunity to grow spiritually and to do exactly what you had planned to do before you put on your 'bodysuit' as a human being.
The most difficult part often is figuring out what you are meant to learn. Sometimes a relationship is trying to teach you how to respect yourself; sometimes it is trying to teach you how to let go; sometimes it is trying to teach you how to become your truest self; and sometimes it is trying to teach you how to be vulnerable.
Here are some questions to consider when ruminating on your familial relationships (or any troubling/frustrating relationships) and how you can best navigate them. Journaling on these questions may give you valuable insight:
Ideally, what would I like to experience from the relationship with this person?
If I had to guess, what does the other person want to experience out of the relationship with me?
What irritates or frustrates me most about this person?
Do I tend to do the same thing that that person does that annoys me, but in a smaller dose or in a different way? If so, could I acknowledge that fact and make that part of me who does that feel a little bit more welcome?
What are the aspects of this person that I find the most palatable or endearing?
If I were to truly honor myself, is there something I would tell this person, even if it were to be uncomfortable or difficult? Does it feel like it needs to be said, or not? What would be the kindest and most authentic way of saying it?
Does this person remind me of anyone else from my past? Am I truly seeing this person as they are or am I projecting someone from my past onto them?
How might it shift my relationship with this person if I were to consciously make an effort to appreciate their positive qualities more? (Note: this doesn't mean it's OK to stay in any sort of abusive relationship).
How might loving myself a bit and appreciating my own positive qualities more lead to a better relationship with this person?
Might some distance between myself and this person improve our relationship?
Do I want this relationship in my life at all? If not, do I feel like I have the right to not have this person in my life? (If it is a family member, an ex-partner where there are kids involved, or a boss or co-worker, this can be a difficult question. Sometimes, it's not really possible to cut someone out of your life, and maintaining physical and emotional distance while increasing tolerance and understanding could be the answer.)
If I had to guess, what would be the highest possibility for this relationship in this lifetime?
If I had to guess, what sort of wisdom am I meant to be learning from this relationship? In what ways have I already begun to apply that wisdom?
How would letting go of trying to control the relationship just 10% more improve the way that I feel about the relationship? Would it bring me more peace?
As previously mentioned, this conjunction between the sun, moon and Chiron (the 'Wounded Healer') opposes the moon, giving us the opportunity to experience healing and resolution in relationships, as well as to let go of wounds from the past. Sometimes things need to be worked out via communication with another person, and sometimes things are best worked out individually and internally.
Utilize this Full Moon energy to do a releasing ceremony. My favorite ritual for this is to make a campfire on the Full Moon (if you are lucky enough to be somewhere relatively warm!) and write down everything you'd like to release on separate slips of paper. As you toss each slip of paper into the fire, speak your intention and visualize releasing that thing. You can release situations, people, places, things, perspectives, beliefs, addictions, bad habits, negative thought patterns, etc.
CODEPENDENCY VS. INDEPENDENCE
With the Libra moon opposing the sun in Aries, we see an interaction between the polarities of codependency and independence. Though the higher aspect of Libra is balance and harmony, one of the lower aspects is codependency. Those people with a lot of Libra in their natal charts, or with Libra as their South Lunar Node, may tend to fall into patterns of codependency and have trouble asserting themselves. Aries, on the other hand, is the most fiercely independent sign in the Zodiac. Aries is a leader, while Libra can tend to be a follower.
Here are some good questions to ponder or journal on:
In what ways do I tend to be unhealthily codependent with others?
Is there a part of me that feels incapable? What does that part of me feel incapable of?
In what ways do I know I need to become more independent?
In what ways am I stubborn? What might allowing a little bit more help from others do for me?
Who am I if I no longer have anything to prove to the world?
HEALING CHILDHOOD WOUNDS
The focus of this Full Moon is not only on healing relationships and experiencing harmony with others; it also provides a tremendous opportunity for deep inner healing. All of us carry some sort of woundings from childhood. In whatever ways our parents or caregivers weren't very good parents or caregivers--or in whichever ways we were abandoned, neglected, or denied in childhood--there will be inner wounds that are created.
Most people carry these deep inner wounds from childhood all the way throughout their adult lives, never really healing them. Most people will unconsciously manifest romantic relationships that reflect those unhealed wounds back to them (for example, manifesting a man that has similar unhealed traits as their father; or manifesting a woman who has similar unhealed traits as their mother).
Chiron (the 'Wounded Healer') is in Aries conjunct the sun and being illuminated by the Full Moon. Chiron in astrology represents the asteroid belt where the former planet Maldek was. Maldek literally exploded due to the society becoming overly structured with control and dominance, though it had an opportunity to become an enlightened society (and was, for periods of time). Thus, Chiron (Maldek's remains) represents the healer who was wounded and thus self-sabotaged. Without healing our Chiron wounds, we are bound to self-sabotage and thus miss out on our Highest Template, as well as the full possibility of our dharma.
Healing these Chiron wounds—which often begin in childhood—can take much self-reflection, therapy, seeking, and energy healing. Helping to heal these 'core' Chiron wounds is one of the things that I most value about my work as a healer. I love seeing people become free from old woundings and negative patterns of beliefs, and thus be able to step into their Higher Timelines.
Although these deep wounds usually aren't an easy fix and generally require repeated self-work, one exercise that I would recommend for this Full Moon is to do some Inner Child healing work. Visualize yourself meeting your Inner Child (a version of you when you were a young kid). Embrace your inner child and give him or her all the love that he or she didn't receive from his or her parents and/or caregivers. Ask the Inner Child what he or she needs from you—the adult self—and accommodate your Inner Child's needs.
Another great exercise is to find a photo of you from when you were young and imagine giving all the love you have in your Heart to that child. Doing so creates a 'Love Loop' and broadcasts that Love back to you in the present moment. It's deeply healing.
Wishing you a happy, healthy, and healing Supermoon in Libra.
