Closing a significant chapter of experience in our relationships. Reconciliation with the inevitable.
Becoming aware that we are led to changes that will further stabilise our lives and help our relationships find another meaning. Leaving emotional baggage behind.
Completion and release from critical issues. Urgent decisions and agreements. The end of compromise.
The April Full Moon is the second in a row this year on the Libra/Aries axis, and closes a chapter negotiating experience on balancing what we share and how we maintain our autonomy. This may involve relationships, marriage, alliances, contracts, partnerships and agreements of all kinds. Even the relationship to ourselves. We strive to find balance in what we keep for us, where we must reconcile and how we ultimately share ourselves.
We may have become more conscious of this process, and more energised in trying to find middle ground in this polarity, since March 21 (Full Moon at zero degrees Libra / Aries), as we also felt momentum for new beginnings with some difficulties and tension with the beginning of the current lunar cycle on April 5, in the sign of Aries. The issues that the culmination of this cycle at the critical last degree of Libra / Aries highlight, relate to agreements and contracts we have with others and are definitively brought into closure or conclusion in the next two weeks. This stems from a much deeper process which stirred the urge for change that promotes our freedom and autonomy. This may have been felt more intensely or activated from April 28 until May 15, 2018, and then from February 6 to March 5, 2019 that Uranus was at 29 degrees Aries. The urgent need to take initiative and be more associated with our individuality and creative desire or very pressing issues that had reached a climax have prompted us to move into drastic moves of dissociation or disengagement from relationships or associations. This was about the need for freedom of expression, autonomy and renewal. That urgent inner unrest may have been reflected in our external world. The Full Moon thus illuminates the closing of a major life chapter that leads us to very important changes in the future. The experience we have gathered during Uranus’s transit in Aries (2010-2019), which marked the awakening of our freedom, a revolution, new beginnings, and a need to radically change direction in an area of life (see the house that Aries occupies in your natal chart, the house that Uranus is placed, but also the house that it rules natally for more information) prompted our Martian nature, has come to an end. Now we are pushed to move on to the next stage of shaping, stabilising, and attracting things, always through innovation and change. Relationships within this time frame of our life have been more focused on the need to promote innovation, overcome obstacles with others, beginning something exciting, joining forces against pressure and the spirit of our times. We were united through our desires, the search for a new path, the willingness to find comrades for a common purpose, or to experience our creativity passionately. Now this process has accomplished its purpose. The Full Moon therefore says: if you have gained experience of what it’s like to fight for what you want, check whether you also have finally reached your limit with compromise and keeping balances in order to sustain contracts that are no longer useful or create more and more obligations, limitation, fears and difficulties. Everything is related to the past, and the consequences of actions that now clarify their true essence. Our relationship with some people and things is ending or enters a new phase of expression, and this requires letting go of all kinds of “baggage” and established mode of operation. Perhaps what we have built is part of our history, whether it is commitments or possessions. Now comes the time that we have to leave some of them behind either voluntary or any other way, and become aware of what is truly of worth. Continue reading
