Libra Full Moon- March 28, 2021
Today’s Full Moon is exact at 8 degrees, 18 minutes Libra at 11:48 am PDT and at 6:48 pm GMT. We are one week out from the Vernal Equinox -00 degrees Aries. All planets are direct and moving fast. Opportunity and urgency are in the air. There’s vivid sense of walking toward what you want – but not quite knowing which way to go. Part of that is our recent departure from Piscean energies and concerns. The dream oasis still beckons to many of us. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Let’s just say it’s a fine place to visit but you wouldn’t want to build a house there. (Or may you would… that’s up to you). The temptation to “wait and see how things go” is strong. But I don’t suggest giving in to that thought. Not now.
Venus is conjunct the Sun (both at 08 degrees) in Aries at this Full Moon creating a situation known as Cazimi. This transit of Venus to the Sun will be active over March 24 – 29, 2021. For a planet to be Cazimi it should be within 1 and 6 degrees of the Sun and naturally, ideas on this vary. When a planet enters “the heart of the Sun” it is helpless and overpowered by Solar energy. The contact is exact. This journey through the Cazimi is a literal baptism of fire during which the planet in question is considered lost, disabled, and non-functioning. According to the great Renaissance astrologer Willian Lilly, “any planet under the beams of the Sun” (within 12 degrees) “hath not fortitude.” But as Venus, recently in her exultation in Pisces, vanishes from our sight into the Sun as he “devours” her, she is purified and transformed. She is released and as a result, strengthened, anointed, and divinely empowered.
There are a lot of planets sitting at 08 degrees at this lunation and a lot of contacts being made as a result. Sun, Moon, Venus, Uranus, Chiron, Vesta, are all sitting at 08 of their respective placements. The Libra moon opposes the Sun, Venus, and Chiron in Libra, creating a super-charged superhighway of fire and air energies. This signals a call to arms. We have some deciding to do. These times are calling for decision, insight, implementation, and activation. Venus sextiles Mars and the North Node in the third house as well as Saturn at 11 degrees Aquarius in the 11th house. This creates an opening and opportunity to expand and grow into what’s ahead.
This is a busy Moon! She is also the brightest Moon of 2021. This will intensify the lunar pull on the tides, tectonic plates, and our psyches. The conjunction of Sun, Venus, and Chiron reminds us that we can learn from pain and heal from action and love. We are in a position to reconcile our collective and individual pasts moving forward. The grand trine in air of the Moon in Libra with Mars conjunct North node in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius promotes clear thinking and intellectual innovation as well as teamwork. The Moon forms a quincunx with Uranus at 08 Taurus (who is also squaring Saturn) indicating that innovation and disruption are part of this new equation balance/imbalance moving forward. Mercury’s conjunction with Neptune heightens intuition, creative activities, and empathy but can also fall back into patterns of avoidance, wishful thinking, and inattention to reality – which given the velocity and interactions of this lunation – could be a problem. As noted above – all the planets are direct and fast. This is not a time to hesitate and dilly-dally.
The changes and shifts are circling and coming together. Between now and eclipse season which will begin with a total Lunar Eclipse on May 26, 2021, our mission is to think upward, ahead, clearly, and realistically. There’s a very pure stream of information for all of us right now. It’s not to be found the usual places. It may take some concentration and dedication to catch the right frequency. And we may have to be more precise in the ways that we see, source, and disburse this information and energy. Be curious, specific, truthful, and wide open to what you will find. Because you will find it – that elusive frequency – now and moving ahead. It will be worth it.
