Full Moon in Libra Lunar Eclipse

The full moon at 14 degrees Libra on Saturday April 4th is also a partial lunar eclipse.





"This Spring is going to be an active one when it comes to the magical power of eclipses. Exactly two weeks after your beautiful New Moon in Pisces solar eclipse, we are seeing a lovely Full Moon in Libra lunar eclipse that presents another game changing option for you. This one activates some more Uranus square Pluto action so if you have been needing a transformation in your relationships, this is when it should happen this year. For some, there will be unexpected surprises that you can’t control. For others, you will be in the captain’s seat of striking out anything that does not serve you. This will be a period of transformation, and because it is an eclipse, that means its effects will be experienced for many months to come."

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra: April 4, 2015 – This is a big one (and may be nasty) Elsa

You can always look at "This Week in Astrology" at Cafe Astrology to see if there is a significant lunation in the week.

What Sign is the Moon in?

First we can consider the sign that the Moon is in, in general.  The moon changes sign about every 2.5 days, taking a lunar month to traverse the sky and our charts.

When the Moon is in Libra
Creating order is the focus, not necessarily through tidying or organizing as was the case while the Moon was in Virgo, but rather through pleasing interactions with others and aesthetics in our environment. We tend to solve problems through diplomacy, and we are more able to put aside our own emotions in order to achieve the peace we crave. The tendency now is to avoid direct confrontations. Decisions do not come easily. Seeing both sides to any given situation is the main reason for hesitation. Fear of losing others' approval is another.
The Moon in Libra generally favors the following activities: Relationship and partnership issues, activities involving teamwork and cooperation, activities that involve self-examination, activities related to beauty.

Libra Full Moon


When the moon is full in Libra, it can be about "befriending the enemy."

Full Moon for your Sun or Rising Sign

http://www.astrology.com/full-moon-horoscopes/2-d-d-564091 (this link was specific to a different full moon though)

Look at both, but preferrably your Rising sign.  For me, my Sun is in Scorpio and my Rising is Sagittarius: 

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising 
"Consider" comes from the Latin "consīderāre", meaning to observe, or go with the stars. For thousands of years, we considered that what was above reflected what was below. Thousands. Now horoscopes are one of the most popular things to read and yet astrology itself is generally seen as archaic superstition. Astrology is seen this way in part because it is easily disproved by science and that is because it isn’t one. It’s a meditation; a contemplation and, yes, it hopefully gives us pause long enough to consider what our next right action could be... 
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising 
Remember all the creative brilliance that I was waxing poetic about last week? Well this is the week for its manifestation. Bearing in mind that creativity is born out of chaos, this week could feel like an out of control science experiment or just the right amount of wowzas. It’s not all happening on the external plane though...

What is happening at the lunations?


Every new moon (and full moon) is different because it falls in a different sign.  When the moon is new it is in the same sign as the Sun because, by definition, they are conjunct and the moon is between the earth and the sun.  When the moon is full it is in the opposite sign from the Sun because, by definition, they are the farthest from each other, with the earth between them.


What is happening at a lunar eclipse?


  1. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth's shadow blocks all the Sun's light from directly reaching the Moon's surface. Eclipses of theMoon happen when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned to form an almost or exact straight line.



What house is the full moon in your chart?



So an important thing to consider is the house in your natal chart where the lunation is falling, as well as any planets that might be nearby.

So you will need to look at your chart.  I recommend pulling it up at http://astro.com (use the free extended charts, natal and transits option) or you can order from me.

Here is the section of my chart showing the Moon opposing the Sat. 4/4:



Not sure what all those glyphs (symbols) mean?

So for me, the moon falls in my 10th house (which is also where it was last time).  You can look up the meaning here, among other places: Full Moon in the Houses

Example 
Full Moon in the Tenth House 
You are suddenly in the limelight--everyone notices you now. It's time to put your best foot forward, but be sure to do so with grace and consideration for others, or you may just make a display that you regret later. Perhaps you've been hiding yourself away, taking it easy. Now you need a little attention, and career matters come to a head. You're called to perform, perhaps on a moment's notice, and it's best to keep your cool and do whatever you can to show your competence. A sudden job opportunity, or some form of assistance with regards to career, home, or property matters, could be part of the picture. This can also produce an event that requires you to take charge and show your responsible side.
From the New Moon, through the First Quarter Moon until the Full Moon, the moon is said to be waxing, which means the light is increasing.  From the Full Moon, through the Last Quarter Moon until the next New Moon, the moon is said to be waning, or reducing in light.



Be a Closet Astrologer

"While the sun and moon are in the same energetic sign at a new moon, they are in opposite ones at the full moon. We feel this tension, but it's also a time of fruition and manifestation of the intentions we set at the previous new moon. We've been working with that intent, perhaps that we made about our closet, but now we have a chance to integrate it in a deeper way. Now we are ready to move from blueprint to building the house. We have planned out our new closet organizational design, purchased the hangars and shelves, and now we are ready to take the action of putting it all together.  While we created symbolic imagery at the new moon, we may want to make a more three dimensional expression at the full moon. This could be an altar or it could be making your closet into an altar!"

When the Moon is Full in Virgo, we are oriented towards organization, and you should see some of your intentions set at the previous new moon come to fruition. Take a look at what you wrote about, designed or imagined (or made images of) at that time. What have you or can you put into action?
