Pink Moon : Full Moon in Libra
April 17, 2011
On April 17, 2011, we will have a Full moon transiting in Libra at 28 degrees. The full illumination could be seen around 1:10 pm EST and 10:10 pm Pacific transiting 6 degrees orb.
According to the farmers almanac the first full moon in April is usually referred to as a Pink moon or the Grass Moon. Often the reference of the Pink moon is due to the color of herb moss which looks dusty pink during the full moon light. At the same time Green moon is when the grass turns green and brings life back to bare grass ground.
This is an important aspect for Liberians as well as those that have Libra or cardinal signs in their charts. This moon will set the stage for the sky to open up this summer. This is also to build a foundation to end the series of eclipses which have rocked the foundation of cardinal signs for 3 years and the last gasp will be this summer.
It has been a given fact that full moons do affect our views of people and often makes us irritable. Though some it has been a myth or urban legions. The scientific facts concur that pressure of the water current against the moon cause many erratic behaviors in people. Water is attracted towards the moon when the moon is full which increases the pressure of water retentions and hermitages around the world including people, places and things.
As human beings we are philosophical people and our thought will be a bit distorted on the full moon night as the moons gravitational affect the ocean ties and because humans are 80 percent water our behaviors can also affect how we rationalize things. The full moon may cause deviant behavior and trigger anger, premature labor as well as bleeding.
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 affect 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 doubt that this energy creates an inner pull, fullness – and may help us to connect psychically with others. Everything becomes clearer and more concentrated under the light of the Full Moon – passion and self-esteem can become quite magnified, and we may have more consciousness and spotlight on relationships. There is a good chance to get a splurge of energy by light of the Moon and have more incandescent dreams.
Even though this moon is placed to bring light on relationship issues, the sun in Aries will bring polarity in everyone. It’s a reflection of one self in others lives and what ever that is put out there will come back to you whether good or bad, therefore, being the best you can will be the optimal way to go. Focusing on needs of others will defiantly bring brownie points during this full moon emphasis.
The full moon brings with it different diplomacy. Some may find balance between independence and unity. However, there maybe some tension between our personal space to be alone and feeling so alone to revert to be someone. Therefore it is suggest that you do not make any decisions as to relationship issues until the energy of the moon has pass the orb. This is 2 days before and after the full moon.
Bleeding and blood loss are more likely during a Full Moon, so take care. This is the time to Harvest, Pray and be Thankful, and to work on fertility and prosperity. Love and Romance go wild under a Full Moon, especially around midnight. In a full moon you may become highly objective, clear minded and aware of your own needs and the needs of others. Listen to your inner voice and seek a balance that is important not about power and control. There are no winners or losers in a relationship there are only learned individuals.
“With Pluto Retrograde, Mercury Retrograde until the 23rd, and Saturn Retrograde until the 12th of June, a slow down in our daily outcomes is delayed, until forward movement of these planets allows us to decide ‘once and for all’, instead of waffling, switching, flip flopping, and reversing our plans every 15 minutes. ” Rex Estell
“Saturn Rx in Libra opposing Mars in Aries adds to the theme of separations, as this doubles the effects of the Full Moon, like an exclamation point, so all is exposed that needs to be, especially matters of fairness, justice, equality, peace and balance.” Rex Estell
“Saturn Retrograde in Libra is headed for another square to Pluto in Capricorn, though after June 12th, the showdown is averted, and we pick up the pieces and move on. The New Moon of Taurus allows us to make real all that we’ve been initiating, and your persistence is required now, for the outcome desired to manifest in June/July.” Rex Estell
Perhaps there is a feeling that there is too much take and not enough received and the burdens are just too much to carry. This moon questions our capabilities to accept other people’s duties or letting it go. The pressure of this moon will not keep many quite like they should if so than speak in truth and honesty. Don’t over analyze, emotions may get the best of most of us and be rational. Due to the volcanoes within our emotions it may be that control issues may not allow balance to be restored as it should, therefore watching what you say to avoided heated arguments may come through collaboration rather than silence or arguments. Negotiate the needs and find sacrifices which are needed to alter your own identity so that relationship can be honored.
Mercury will continue to retrograde it may be a time where old flames may come into the picture or that old issues will come to the surface, be careful to make hasty decisions during retrograde. Read more about mercury retrograde and its expectations here.
