Turn on your love light! Friday’s full moon in romantic Libra has us giddy with the flush of spring fever. Partnerships are Libra’s forte, and this full moon sounds the call for commitment. Relationships that have been budding since the Libra new moon six months ago, could blossom full-force. Hello engagements, co-signed contracts, joint business ventures, and other two-person efforts of the long-term variety.
Where has life become a bit, er, lopsided? Libra is the zodiac’s great equalizer, helping us bring back the balance. Represented by the scales, Libra is the “peace, love, and harmony” sign. With a gracious charm, this full moon makes a plea for greater equality, restoring the flow of give-and-take in our closest relationships. Here are a few ways you can maximize the lunar light of Libra’s full moon.
How can you make your duos even more dynamic? While common ground is great, Libra loves the principle of “opposites attract.” Branch out and work the buddy system with someone who knows how to pick up where you leave off. Complementary skill sets make for a total dream team, even if the matchup seems bizarre on paper. In truth, these unlikely pairings can be the greatest win-win combinations. If you’re stuck in a rut, don’t autopilot into dialing a BFF who can commiserate. It would be far more productive to reach out to someone new… someone who has conquered the very dragon you’re trying to slay. Creatives, call upon the gearheads; engineers, reach out to an artiste.
Relationship harmony is a major focus of this Libra full moon. Feeding the “emotional bank account,” as 7 Habits author Stephen Covey calls it, doesn’t require a huge deposit. This week, acknowledging and appreciating the little things that people do can be the glue that seals your bonds. Here are a few magic phrases to try:
It’s so easy to overlook the wonderful gifts people bring us on a daily basis, but being taken for granted can be a huge buzzkill to romance and friendship. Get the lovefest going by showering people with compliments this week. Do you need to be acknowledged too? There’s nothing wrong with asking for it, but be a giver first. The reciprocal remarks may come “automagically” once you start doling them out to others.
The scales of justice are the Libra motif, and this full moon shines a bright beam on bias, discrimination, or anything that’s just plain unfair. Appoint yourself a member of the Justice League, and bring things back to a level playing field. Is someone being bullied in your neighborhood, school, or within your family? Would you like to see your office culture be more inclusive? Are animals being mistreated in your area? Do something to help right the wrong. This is especially potent if you are on the winning team. It’s not really a victory, after all, if someone else has to suffer for your gain. Remember that Libra is the peaceful warrior. In the famous words of Libra pacifist Mahatma Gandhi, “Whenever you are confronted by an opponent, conquer him with love.”
Luxe-loving Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, fashion, and the arts. Personal style is a rich form of self-expression and a powerful way to wear your soul on your sleeve. This full moon helps you identify a signature look; your tribal markings, if you will. Are you feeling like a fashion victim, riding the rollercoaster of trends? A session with a stylist might seem extravagant, but could actually save you big bucks in the long run. Working with a pro can help you develop a customized look, and save you from all those costly wardrobing missteps. Image may not be everything, but Libra knows the powerful impact great style can have. Let this full moon teach you how to speak a strong visual language. Opt for a touch of luxury too and splurge on something that stands the test of time.
When in balance, we feel surefooted and stable, as if we are standing on solid ground. Libra’s equalizing energy can be incorporated into our physicality this week. One of the simplest exercises for improving balance is to stand with feet hips width apart; bend a knee and alternatively lift one leg off the ground, holding it there for 30 seconds. More advanced balancers could try this on a BOSU ball. Yogis and yoginis, Tree Pose (Vrksasana) is an excellent way to improve stability. Hold your abdominals tight while doing these exercises. This protects and strengthens the lower back, which is the part of the body that Libra rules.
