2nd Blue moon 2018
March 31, 2018
With the spring equinox behind us, we have the privilege of enjoying the sun and I can only hope that the storms are behind us as well. However, one never knows when mother nature will get upset and remind us that she is a powerful force.
March 30th marks the time of the second most beautiful constellation. In my 2018 predictive blog (written in December 2017), I stated that “In 2018, the skies will be twinkling every now and then, we will have one super moon, one micro full moon, and two micro new moons. Additionally, we will have two blue moons, one black moon, and one red moon.” Read more here.
This is the second blue moon of 2018, but it is also a full moon. A blue moon usually occurs when there are two full moons in one month. On March 2, 2018, we had a full moon in Virgo as Holi began in many parts of the world, marking time for spring to begin. This second full moon will now glorify equality and justice.
I have always pointed out that the full moon effect usually begins 7 days before and 7 days after the full moon appears. Isn’t it kind of ironic that “March for our Lives” was held the day I write this blog (March 24)?
On March 31st, we will have a full moon transiting in Libra at 10 degrees. The full moon will illuminate the sky with a hue of blue around 8:37 a.m. EST and 5:37 a.m. PST, transiting 10 degrees, depending upon the orb.
Even as the moon will be blue, beautiful, and full, for many Christians it will signify, “Black Saturday” or Easter Eve; often represented as mourning Jesus’s death, while meditating and fasting for his resurrection. Many churches around the world will celebrate Easter vigils, meditations, Baptism, and the Service of Light, while Deacons will make Easter Proclamations and scripture reading will be heard throughout the congregations. The following day will be the joyous celebration of the resurrection. But how could it be that this falls on April 1 (April Fool’s Day)?
There have been many stories as to how April Fool’s Day was adopted. I believe that added to Easter, not only can children have fun, but adults can as well. Many of us have been basking in mourning, shock, and speculations, it’s time to let loose and laugh a little.
This moon will affect all those that have Libra in their charts, as well as cardinal signs. When the Moon is full, the gravitational pull between the Moon, on one side of the earth, and the Sun, on the other, has a great effect on our own bodily water levels, as well as the earth’s. You may or may not notice the effect (depending on how powerful the Moon is in your Astrological chart), but there is no dispute that this energy creates an inner pull and fullness which may help us to sensitively connect with others.
Everything becomes lucid and more intense under the light of the full moon – passion and poise can become quite overstated, and we may have more insight and spotlight on relationships. There is a good chance of getting a surge of energy from the light of the Moon and having more luminous visions.
But be careful that the romanticism and hallucination, created by this moon, does not cause more confusion. Mercury retrograde is in full blast at the moment and may only get more intense as time goes on. Read more here.
The full moon brings with it random decisions, yet some may find balance between control and harmony. However, there may be some tension between our private desires to be alone, and feeling so alone that we will find anyone to fill the void. This could leave one with an extremely bad taste at the end of the day. Therefore, it is suggested that you do not make any decisions regarding relationship issues until the energy of the moon has passed the orb. This is 7 to 10 days before and after the full moon.
Then again, the delight of this moon brings with it Venus which sits pretty in Taurus. Neat, expensive, and romantic things are what Taurus loves most. These go hand-in-hand with Libra who loves poetry; perhaps a love story can be written.
During a full moon there is high impartiality, clear mindedness, and an awareness of your own needs, along with the needs of others. Listen to your inner voice and seek a balance that is important, one that is not about power and control. There are no winners or losers in a relationship, there are only educated individuals.
Perhaps there is a feeling that there is too much taken and not enough received, or that the burdens are just too much to carry. This moon questions our competency to accept other people’s duties, or if we should simply let them go. The pressure of this moon will not keep many quiet like they should; if you find yourself in this situation, remember to speak with truth and honesty. Don’t over scrutinize as emotions may get the best of most of us – be cogent.
Due to the volcanoes within our emotions, control issues may not allow stability to be restored as it should, therefore watch what you say to avoid fiery arguments. Convey needs and find sacrifices which are necessary to alter your own identity so that relationships can be honored.
The full moon brings with it a robustness to plant and harvest. While the moon is in Libra, there is a need to have a nourishing relationship with a loving partner in order to feel at peace, psychologically. There is an urge to regularly evaluate emotions, seeking just the right symmetry with others. There is also an energy for grandeur and the fine arts, so express them in a significant way. Inspiring others by giving them honesty and seeing their spectacular uniqueness is the theme for this full moon. There also could be an admiration of a mother or motherly figure to model wisdom, sensitivity, appeal, and fairness.
Since the moon in Libra represents Appealing, Beautiful, Expensive, Fair-Minded, and Loving, it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced. This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is also my suggestion that you purchase a yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or peppermint oil and chant Psalm 26.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.
This year I have chosen four mantras; the easier ones will assist those who are new to mantra chanting be more flawless and articulate. The more difficult mantras will assist those that are advanced, and experts, dive deeper into the spiritual world.
The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Libra moon is:
Om Hreeng Kleeng Shreeg
(oom Hriing Kliing Shriing)
Om Tatva Niranjanaya Tarakramaya Namah
OM draamg dreeng droung sah shukray namah…Om Rajadabaaya vidmahe, Brigusuthaya dhimahi, tanno sukrah prachodayat
Om Sarvabaadhaa Vinirmukto, Dhan Dhaanyah Sutaanvitah… Manushyo Matprasaaden Bhavishyati Na Sanshayah…Om Om Shree Mahalakshmyai Cha Vidraahe Vishnu Patrayai Cha Dheemahi Tanno Lakshmi Prachodayat Om
These mantras produce the quality of friendship within oneself and others. Their intention is to smooth your path in life by helping you understand the lessons you have set for yourself, and through karma, the negativity will slowly go away with every moon cycle. Remember to cross out any old affirmations, even if there is the slightest of change, and create new ones. Remember to never make the affirmations begin with “I balance”, they must be worded “I need balance in my life with friendship and love.”
When it comes to aspirations, the perfect number is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.
This full moon will have a great impact on cardinal signs and it is advisable to have an updated reading on yourself. Remember, for every ending there is always a new beginning. But remember mercury retrograde will not make relationships easy.
Wishing you the best of this moon and I hope that it brings inspiration. Love to you always.
