April 16 – 17th marks the April Full Moon in harmonious and compassionate Libra.
This wonderful Full Moon not only shines brightly with the peaceful energy of Libra but also amplifies the vibrational cosmic frequencies of the Jupiter and Neptune conjunction we talked about last week.
What that means is we have an extra potent burst of energy in the skies over the next week, and really for the entire month of April and into May!
The Full Moon is always a time of heightened emotions and increased intuition, shining a great big spotlight on any tension that may exist in our lives and acting as a call to let that go.
You may well have already begun to feel this energy prior to the Full Moon, and certainly, the energy will continue for the following week.
While Libra does represent balance and harmony, that doesn’t mean we automatically experience those states just because of the Full Moon.
We have to look at what is not working in our lives and adjust accordingly, making any necessary changes in order to carve a new path forward towards a more harmonic existence.
Another aspect to bear in mind is the powerful energy of the dwarf planet Eris, which is very active under this Full Moon.
Eris is bringing in some powerful feminine energy, think female warrior!
She is notorious for bringing discord and chaos, but don’t let that worry you.
What this feminine energy really brings (if you are in alignment and aware), is an astonishing, raw power that you can channel.
Think of the mother who fiercely protects her children in the face of danger.
Or the woman who knows 100% who she is and how powerfully her energy magnetizes others.
Eris is about feminine wisdom, whether you are male or female, whatever your gender expression – you can embrace the divine feminine power that Eris brings during this Full Moon.
The presence of Eris at this time might stir up some tension for you, but ultimately she is a force for good.
A path leading you towards greater harmony, leaving anything negative and heavy in the past.
Libra does have a focus on relationships and our close connections to others, so this may arise as a theme in your life during the Full Moon.
The following ritual is perfect for you to perform on the days following the Full Moon.
It will help you to tap into the cosmic energies and allow the Universe to guide you towards a more abundant, proactive, and aligned life through raising your vibration and connecting to your higher self.
Cleanse your energy field and your surroundings using whatever tool or method you prefer (sage, palo santo, essential oils, candles, crystals).
You can say the following or simply make the intention for your space and energy field to be cleared.
I ask for my energy field and surroundings to be cleansed and purified.
I allow the powerful light of the full moon to illuminate and dissolve all that is no longer needed from my aura and this space.
I ask that the higher divine frequencies clear my frequency of any negativity or dense energy and I raise my vibration to the most aligned and perfect frequency.
This space is now full of abundance, positivity, and pure light energy.
Now, sit in your cleansed space with a crystal of your choice in your hand and close your eyes.
(Rose quartz, clear quartz, or Hematite is very good for this purpose but any crystal you are drawn to will be perfect for you)
Allow your breathing to become regular and easy, as you relax and meditate.
Try to simply cleanse your mind of worry and sit with your inhalations and exhalations for as long as feels right to you.
When you are ready, open your eyes and take a few moments to stretch or have a glass of water.
Now, grab a notebook or journal. At the top of the page write, “My Intuition Tells me that…”
Then just begin writing whatever comes to your mind.
Let your unconscious speak through your pen.
Don’t stop to edit or think about what you are writing, just allow it to flow.
Even if you are writing things that make no sense at all, the idea is to write for at least 10 minutes of free flow.
This exercise is about listening to and connecting with your higher self, your spirit guides, and your intuition.
The deep part of you that just knows the truth within.
Whatever insights come up, bear in mind the themes of this Full Moon in Libra:
Relationships, Harmony, Feminine Power.
When you have finished writing, read over your notes and see what makes sense to you.
Try to feel into the emotions rather than use your analytical brain.
Use this ritual to cleanse yourself of any tension held deep within and purge any negativity or anxiety with this writing exercise.
Even if you don’t know exactly what you are bringing to the surface, trust that the Universe has your back and is guiding you to release what you need to.
Trust the wisdom within and practice believing in it.
To finish the ritual do something that grounds and centers you.
Take a bath with essential oils, go for a walk outside in nature, stretch and make sure to hydrate yourself with fresh spring water as much as possible.
Happy Full Moon energies!
