The Full Moon in Libra is a Super Full Moon (perigee) and happens on Tuesday 7 April (10.35 PM New York) and Wednesday 8 April (3.35 AM London / 12.35 PM Sydney). This lunation may be felt more intensely by those who are sensitive to this type of energy, due to the moon’s closeness to the earth. This is the closest Super Full Moon in 2020.
Moon in Libra is (as always) in opposition with Sun in Aries at the time of the Full Moon. Sun is joined by the asteroid Eris and Sun & Moon form a T-square with the conjunction between Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn. Mars in Aquarius is square Uranus in Taurus – earthquake level tension! The celestial energies have been strong since the start of April and there is no letting up for this lunation, or for the days to follow…
I’m not going to spend a lot of time describing what these energies mean to civilization as we know it because I think that it has never been more clear how accurate the science of Astrology is… But I will remind everyone that the Pluto-Saturn conjunction in Capricorn was exact on the day the first death from Covid-19 was reported in the news. This influence is with us for all of 2020. Saturn has since moved into Aquarius and I really can’t think of a better placement for a lockdown: Impingement (Saturn) upon our freedom (Aquarius) in general, increased censorship (Saturn) and a ban on social gatherings (Aquarius).
What I will do for this Full Moon is share a Tarot spread I created. It’s inspired by what is happening and hopefully it will help you find the sweet spot where you choose what has been forced upon you, remembering all the while that what we resist persists.
