The lovely pink full moon in Libra is April 5 at 9:34 p.m. PT and April 6 at 12:34 a.m. PT. As the first full moon of spring, it's all about embracing new beginnings and freeing ourselves from the past while focusing on our current dreams and goals.
The full moon isn't mingling with other planets except for the sun, so we're getting its energy straight up, no chaser.
On the same day, Mercury and the North Node of Destiny hang out in Taurus, encouraging us to think smart about love. With the moon and sun playing a cosmic tug-of-war, we might feel torn between wanting partnership and craving independence. Striking the right balance might be tricky, but we're up for the challenge, right?
Now, the moon in Libra might not be all warm and fuzzy – it's more about making rational choices rather than sentimental ones. Libra, represented by the scales of justice, isn't known for being overly emotional. So, we might feel some raw, even harsh, vibes in the air.
This full moon is hanging out in the Via Combusta degrees of Libra, which can create a hostile atmosphere. Like the Tower tarot card, this "burning way" energy might make things feel chaotic and intense. Even if situations are falling apart, they're just reshaping to better suit our current lives.
Venus, Libra's ruling planet, is currently in Taurus (where it loves to be) and is chatting with dreamy Neptune in Pisces. This should help soften the full moon's vibe but might also stir up some fears and worries about relationships.
Interestingly, Venus is lined up with the fixed star Algol, one of the 15 magical Behenian stars. This makes it a powerful time to manifest our desires and strengthen partnerships. But be cautious – Algol's intense energy can create tension in love matters if we're not careful. To avoid conflict, think before speaking and choose words wisely for clear and drama-free communication.
With an open mind and heart, we can welcome all the positive vibes and energy heading our way. For extra protection against Algol's influence, consider wearing a good luck talisman like hematite, which is excellent for balancing and shielding against negativity. You could also burn some mugwort incense at home during the full moon to help let go of the past and open up to new possibilities.
