Full moon in Libra -A balance between extremes.
11th April 2017.
Numerological significance – The number 11 is much like a door way, or a connection to a higher state of being. Where ever the number 11 appears, so does an awakening, and an opportunity for us to learn even more about ourselves through past lessons. The number 11 can sometimes be lessons learned through pain, more often than not, and it can highlight to us where we may be out of balance, and sync with ourselves, or those who mirror aspects of us.

Libra ruling balance, co-operation & harmony reminds us of the justice card in the taro.
Getting things in order financially, laying the soil, & the groundwork for what is to come.
Libra in terms of relationships can see us engaged in further self analysis.
In order to create a sense of equilibrium, we need to understand the part that we play.
It is almost as if time freezes, & the offset of mercury retrograde causes even further engagement in self observation.
Finding yourself in a meditative state does not always have to mean sitting on the floor w/ your legs crossed, & your index finger curved towards your thumb.
Meditation can be the thoughts that come to you when you refrain from acting on your impulses.
If your relationships have adopted a similar narrative for a while, then this full moon inspires you to assess why.
You may be triggered by, or encounter an experience that allows you to see where your peace is being shaken, or war models within you that make peace, internally & externally, difficult to maintain.
Logical thinking & critical analysis allows us to make mental improvements that benefit our emotional experiences.
The ultimate yin & yang, the libra is able to make unbiased decisions.
This full moon could highlight to us areas in our lives where we need to maintain balance between our escapism, and or idealism. Idealism is very different from escapism, because idealism can conjure plans, recipes, and ideas for greatness, whereas escapism can become the place that we go to to hoard all of these grand inventions, without ever actually seeing them through.
It could be time with this full moon illuminating to put yourself first, and focus on your own better interests, however, you are also reminded how going it alone can be performed to your own detriment. You will need the support and help of others along the way, however this manifests, it is important not to shut the world out. Co-operation is needed. You may not be best friends with everybody in the world, but this does not mean that you should not have allies.
Do not let your professional work suffer because you chase emotional highs in love. Perhaps it is highlighted to you how often you allow romantic relationships to get the better of you because you make them the sole basis of your own happiness.
However, since Libra is so keen on relationships, you are being guided to find the right balance, between catering to yourself, and not shutting yourself off from those who wish to cater to you.
As full moons focus on releasing, you may want to sift through the ways that you hold on to any resentment towards others, or any relationships that you could be holding on to that need to be altered so that there is more balance involved. Maybe you are too co-dependent, maybe you are too unattached, and this full moon is showing you that.
Pleasure, beauty, and grace is needed to appreciate life, but once again, we are also asked to consider that there are more trying times in life that will also require navigation. It is important to be able to remain clear headed and level headed enough not to be taken under by every slight occurrence, or every emergence of trouble.
Full moon releasing ritual –
You will need a journal to complete this ritual that I have come up with for this full moon in Libra.
Seeing as Libra rules balance, fairness, and justice in relationships, and areas of life pertaining to a community, or social group, single out one of your past relationships this week to analyse.
Write down the name of the individual you wish to analyse, and why you have chosen them. This works better if this was an ex that you were in love with.
Write about your feelings for them now.
Write about your feelings for them during the relationship.
Write about your feelings for them after the relationship had ended.
What made it end?
How did you react to it ending?
How did they react to it ending?
And what was your NEXT relationship like?
Likely, the person you would have chosen is somebody who had quite a significant impact on your life, and you may be thinking of them now.
Once you have journaled these things down, you also need to journal and recite to yourself that you release all of the painful lessons associated with this relationship, including some of the beliefs that it left you with about love.
You may write a letter of forgiveness to them, or even a note if you do not wish to divulge so much energy to them. Once this is completed, you may either burn, or rip up the note, signifying your willingness to depart from whatever energy the experience stored within, and for you.
Repeat as you see fit. – Perhaps there are few people you need to do this with.
Thoughts//affirmations to consider –
I am not the same person as I was when I loved this person.
I am not somehow less deserving of harmonious relationships than anybody else.
Though I am not faulty, I am willing to take an open and honest look at myself.
If I harm or misunderstand others, I do so to myself, therefore, I try to be objective when I need to be.
Happy full moon 🔮
