Full moons carry incredible energy and can create changes in your emotions, your body, your mind, and your spirit.
By tracking the full moons and their meanings we hope to inspire, enlighten, and inform you of the energetic shifts that are on their way to you.
March's Full Moon is called The Worm Moon. Sounds a bit gross, but it's named this mostly because with the warming temperatures (yay!), the worms start to come to the surface of the earth.
This Full Moon is in Libra, while the sun will be in Aries.
As with all full moons, these two energies are in a bit of a push/pull situation, which basically asks us to contemplate and strike a balance between the two. The Aries-Libra polarity is a relationship axis where Aries represents the "self" (you) and Libra represents the "other."
In reference to the "self" (you), Aries energy tends to be about self-assertion, confidence, insistence, courage...even some pushiness. The Aries Sun carries the energies of authenticity, moxie, and the desire for independence.
In reference to the "other," Libra energy is about compromise, our need for relationships, and what it takes to maintain them—accommodation, negotiation, grace, and balance. The Libra Moon encompasses equality, diplomacy, and fairness.
Since both of these energies are specifically focused on relationships, you are being asked to strike a balance among caring for your personal needs, being independent or autonomous, and opening yourself up to or focusing on caring for someone else, allowing some dependence and partnership.
Here's what you need to be aware of during this time:
- Examine your thoughts on independence and its value to you. Dig deep and look at your close relationships and ask—"Am I doing enough giving here? Am I a reciprocal partner? Do I have any issues around keeping up certain walls because it's healthy or because I'm afraid of a deeper relationship?"
- Be an open channel. Boundaries and displays of strength are good, but not if they are keeping you from experiencing life at its fullest. There's a lot of love out there to give and receive, and life begins when you are an open channel.
Wonderfully because Venus will also align with the sun and Venus rules the Libra Moon, it's a fantastic and easy time for conflict resolution if there is something specific that needs to be resolved.
