Full Moon in Libra:  Rambling on the Rocky Road

Full Moon in Libra: Rambling on the Rocky Road

The full moon in Libra packs a punch Friday, April 19 (6:12 am, CDT)! Surprise revelations and abrupt epiphanies bring clarity to situations that were concealed in the foggy mists of the previous March. A powerful push directs the flow, breaking apart and separating. Choices become clear at a crossroads of sorts. Saturn changes direction, retrograding April 20, potentizing the full moon. Sharp turns around hard edges navigate rocky roads. Big changes unearthed help to move stagnant and stuck patterns!

Reactivity has a polarizing effect. Saturn and Pluto straddle the south node, transforming and purifying intensely. Balance may be sought by exercising determination with difficulties while finding an outlet for restlessness and the need for newness.

Another dynamic involves freedom-oriented quester Jupiter in Sagittarius, elbowing the lovely and elusive Venus in Pisces. The God of Merrymaking pursues the Goddess of Love, and the chase gets exhausting as more and more is demanded from her. Opportunities for growth make themselves known; use wisdom as a guide for narrowing choices down to palatable form!

To help cope with the winds of change, try lighting Coventry Creations’ Outta My Way! candle. Part of their Wicked Witch Mojo line, this candle is full of playful energy designed to help you get unstuck and control how your life is changing. To discern what opportunities are best taken, consider adding the Eye of Horus’ Meditation oil to your daily routine. This aromatherapy essential oil blend helps to create a relaxing atmosphere more conducive to clear thought. To ground, light some of Shoyeido’s Amethyst incense. This special incense blend aims to bring balance and peace to any environment its burned in.

Snow Moon in Virgo

Snow Moon in Virgo when Mercury is retrograde

The February Full Moon is known as the Snow Moon, and even the Snow Blinding Moon.
The Lakota Sioux know it as the Moon of the Dark Red Calves, while the Cheyenne called it the Big hoop and Stick Game Moon. Other names include the Quickening Moon, Hunger Moon, Opening Buds Moon, Storm Moon, and the Trapper’s Moon.

When the Moon is full in a sign it reflects the light of consciousness to the fullest. It is a time to be fully engaged with life in that specific area. This February the Full Moon is in Virgo, ruled by Mercury. But with Mercury in Retrograde, now is the time for contemplation and analysis rather than action.

The Quickening Moon

We’re quite fond of the title the “Quickening” Full Moon. The quickening is used to describe the first noticeable movements of an unborn child in their mothers womb. It marks a time when new life is beginning but hasn’t broken through the surface quite yet. Also, this leaves life open to so many wonderful opportunities  A journey has yet to begin. We are in the middle of Imbolc Season: A time of quiet, renewal and rebirth. While the skies are grey and the ground is white, life secretly begins to awaken. Soon enough, lush greenery will sprout from the earth and life will be abundant once again. One cycle is ending as another begins.The air is also filled with female divinity and fertility, which would make this a fantastic time for fertility and childbirth magick. With all this being said, use this time to better yourself and create the life you truly want. The possibilities are endless.

February Full Moon Personal Inventory

Use Virgo’s energy to look at your dreams and where you are on your path. Take stock of the specific gifts you bring, the ones which only you have to offer – do they line up with your profession or do you still need to find what Buddhist’s call Right Livelihood? Seek your greatest vision, and don’t let anyone block your intentions or talk you down. [Read more…]
