On Thursday, the 21st, we will have a Super Full Moon in Libra. Plus, just one day before , the Spring Equinox begins with the Sun entering the sign of Aries. It’s the New Astrological Year (fireworks)! Powerful times, ladies and gentlemen! Let me explain by parts:
According to the book “Moonology” by Yasmin Boland, the full moon phase is great to release and let go. What is it that is not doing you any good in your life anymore?
The Full Moon is also a time for forgiveness. Has someone done you wrong? Forgive and let go. It is hard, I know. We tend to want revenge, we want them to feel the pain they caused us. Sounds fair, right? After all, why are we the only ones who should suffer?! I understand. But, transcending, transmuting, and overcoming that impulse is magical. It takes huge self-control to forgive and let go. But, you see, It’s all about which energy you choose to surf on: a negative one of resentment and revenge; or a positive one of forgiveness. And remember, the energy which you vibrate attracts the same kind of energy.
This Full Moon will be in the zodiac sign of Libra. Libra is all about equilibrium, balance, harmony, beauty, and relationships. Ask yourself how are YOUR scales? Are they balanced in the various aspects of your life? What do you need to shed to have that equilibrium? What do you need to gain to make the scales equally balanced? And if your scales are aligned – if your life is fairly balanced and good- remember to be grateful. Gratitude is a huge powerful thing.
Now, just one day before this Full Moon, we have the Spring Equinox (on the 20th). That is when night and day are of equal lengths. The Spring Equinox also marks the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring in The Northern Hemisphere. In the Tropics, people do not feel the change of seasons much because they are not so well defined as they are in non-tropical areas. But the principle is valid nonetheless. The principle of the recognition of overcoming difficult times and the celebration of better and brighter times ahead.
This recognition and celebration was a common practice in the Germanic culture. The beginning of Spring was welcomed with a feast honoring the Goddess Eostre (or Ostara) – the Goddess of Dawn. Bunnies, or hares, were pretty much associated with her. Some say that she turned a bird into a hare; others say that she was a goddess with the head of a hare.
Pagans of then (and of new) celebrated, in the Spring Equinox, the awakening fertile energy of Earth. They showed gratitude for having survived the winter, the hard times, the nearly lack. And they welcomed the potential of change with Spring, of survival, of prosperity and abundance.
This is also a good time to set your intention on what you want. What do you want in abundance in your life? Is it love? Peace? Health? Money? And what can you give back? More love? More kindness? More understanding? Remember, it’s the dance of energy, the flow, that counts. You receive, you give; you ask for, you donate; You take something, you leave something. The currency of energy is energy. And everything has energy in it, even your thoughts!
So, as you can see, this is a great time to forgive, let go, and set intentions.
