The energy shift from March to April 2023
If you’re listening to this congratulations because what a March that was full of cosmic planetary shake ups, twists and turns. Still feeling the impacts of March? You’re not alone, allow yourself the time and space to integrate what has happened for you. April may spark up some feelings given the overall general energy of relationships and healing wounds from them with this Full Moon too.
Speaking of which, I had planned to record an episode on integration last week but ironically I was needing time and space to integrate after a huge month of soft launching my debut book The Great Unlearning which is now available to pre-order before it releases on the 23rd of June 2023 (more information on my website) and then going into my own self care by attending a retreat after! So that will be next week’s episode.
This week is all about the upcoming Libra Full Moon and as an added bonus I’m going to be talking about the day of miracles that is also happening in April. The Libra full moon is the first full moon of the astrological new year.
Libra Full Moon Energy in April 2023
Full moons are a time about completion and letting go so you’ll want to incorporate that into your week by taking note of what you would like to release.
This full moon occurs on the 5th of April 2023 or 6th of April 2023 depending where in the world you are, the 6th for those like me in Australia.
This full moon is closing the cycle out of the new moon in Libra which was around the 25th/26th September 2022 pending if you live in the northern and southern hemisphere respectively.
Take a moment to pause and reflect on what was happening in your life then and how it has played out now.
The full moon illuminates what is coming to a close and we receive signs we are in alignment and on the right track otherwise with it being in Libra, we’ll receive signs exposing where we may need adjustments and rebalancing in our lives. This is further magnified by the presence of Chiron, the wounded healer and represents our greatest wound in life is present next to the sun.
Libra and the Divine Feminine in April 2023
Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, beauty and relationships. Venus is the epitome of feminine and it’s currently in the house of Taurus (the other sign it rules) therefore the full moon is the culmination of the divine feminine. The moon is a beautiful time to celebrate the divine feminine with you!
Think slowing down, luxury, sensual and feeling safe and secure. Some simple ways could be pampering yourself, think bath, face mask, beautiful body lotions or oils and yes you can buy yourself flowers! Savouring hot chocolate or sipping on champagne. Making the extra effort for the little details: lighting up candles, garnishing your meals, fresh crisp sheets. It’s not what you do necessarily but the intention behind why you are doing it — for you, to honour the divine feminine in you, the divine goddess that you are.
Furthermore being in Venus we are invited to be in our senses for the healing the full moon presents, through movement, through art, through pleasure and through play. This quote by Teri Dealer sums it up “When you feel you are being moved by the creative spirit, you are in fact being moved by the divine feminine.”
Do note that the divine masculine embodied by Mars is currently in the sign of Cancer (which isn’t natural given Cancer is watery, emotional and intuitive — so take note of emotional outbursts or defensive behaviours around emotions and relationships). The energy of the divine masculine will be in the spotlight with the second Aries new moon in a few weeks which happens to be a solar eclipse indicating the next phase of our soul journeys. This full moon is preparing up to this point!
Libra Full Moon in April 2023: All about relationships
Putting the above all together we can see the cosmic flavour this Full Moon is about relationships.
What relationships do you need to let go of?
What relationships drain your energy?
Which relationships raise your vibration and uplift you?
What patterns and habits do you need to release that do not serve the highest harmony and alignment of your relationships?
What needs healing and forgiveness in your relationships?
How do you feel fully seen, loved and supported in your relationships?
How do you bring more balance into your relationships?
How can you improve the relationships I have?
Where and how can you bring closure to the relationships that no longer serve you? You may perhaps take a moment to reflect on the gratitude for the person for the lessons they have taught you and make a conscious moment to intentionally in your mind and energy to release their energy and let them go.
Libra Full Moon in April 2023: Balance and Harmony
Libra being the sign of the scales emphasises balance and harmony. Accordingly where there is imbalance, Libra naturally seeks to find that imbalance and fix it. So for this full moon there’s a spotlight of imbalances in relationships and the home.
Take a moment to reflect on what does balance mean to you?
What does balance look like for you?
Where do you need more balance in your life?
Libra Full Moon in April 2023: Boundaries
The biggest spotlight being on boundaries. Libra has is known for justice, cooperation, compromises and in turn seeking peace however in the shadow that is at the neglect of self. The full moon first and foremost shines a light on ourselves to ask ourselves, are we at peace within?
Often the peace within is disrupted due to a lack of boundaries: saying yes when we want to say no, people pleasing, being afraid to disappoint or let others down at our own expense. Even so when we aren’t firm with our boundaries, on a sub conscious level we start to get resentful at others and mostly ourselves leading to feelings of frustration arising.
Anger is a powerful emotion to indicate something is not right including anger at self for not upholding our own boundaries. Another sign is a shift in emotions perhaps if we are taking on emotions around us for lack of energetic boundaries such as being around lower vibrations and feeling negative even though we were feeling happy and positive beforehand. Watch out for the shadow of Libra which is passive aggressiveness which can happen when we find it difficult to state our needs, we can start acting out in ways such as being passive aggressive.
Libra Full Moon in April 2023: Chiron
As mentioned earlier the presence of Chiron being wounds also calls for a time to reflect on the past in terms of relationships: it could be reflecting on relationships out of balance perhaps over giving or over taking, a lack of boundaries leading to painful experiences and emotions, a fear of boundaries stemming from childhood: if I put a boundary in place, in return I will lose love and acceptance.
Helpful quotes about boundaries
Some quotes for you to ponder about boundaries in your life:
“The only people who get upset about you setting boundaries are the people who we benefiting from you have none.”
“When you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you’re not saying ‘no’ to yourself.’ – Paul Coelho
“Stop asking why they keep doing it and start asking yourself why you keep allowing it.”
“Walls keep everyone out. Boundaries teach them where the door is.” – Mark Groves
“Being able to say “No” is a necessary ingredient in a healthy lifestyle.”- David W. Earle
“Having healthy boundaries not only requires being able to say “no”, but also being willing and able to enforce that “no” when necessary.” – Jessica Moore
Truly this full moon is giving us a lesson in the art of balance in relationships. Aries season calls for us to focus on ourselves with Libra reminding us harmony, to strike the balance of inner peace and being aware of the impact of others on ourselves. It’s a great time to reflect on the dynamics of your relationships: independence, interdependence and co-dependence.
Libra Full Moon in April 2023: Self
Let’s also not forget about the relationship with yourself and bringing that into harmony and balance. Do an assessment with regards to how you are feeling within.
Are the foods you’re eating supporting you?
How is your body feeling?
Is it under too much stress?
Does it need more movement? What type of movement is it craving, intense workouts or more slow and flow?
How is your home, is it clean? A true home in the eyes of Libra is one that makes you feel serene, relaxed and tranquil. Maybe you’ll be called to do a declutter and cull which I find is always so good for the soul in the full moon. Everything has energy, including every individual item in your home!
Day of Miracles in April 2023
So when is the astrological day of Miracles? It’s the one day of the year when the Sun which represents well the sun shining so it’s favourable, confident and yes energy meets up with Jupiter at the same point in the sky. Jupiter represents luck and expansion, thus in turn growth and abundance.
That day this year is April 11th pending time zone and here in Australia April 12th. Given it’s happening in the sign of Aries it represents bold action and risk taking in alignment to be rewarded with miracle energy. It’s a time to call in miracles and be open to anything happening too!
