The Libra full Moon effects intensify as the week progresses, culminating on Sunday in the form of a relationship clarification, culmination, or ending that opens the door to a new beginning. Values, priorities and money are always involved when Venus rules as it does under a Libra Moon. The Sun in Aries opposition to the full Moon entails an effort to bring the situation into a better balance. Over – compromise may need to be reined in or reconsidered in light of results that may become obvious. A “peace at any price” strategy could be called into question.
At the beginning of the week Mercury in Pisces squares the North and South Nodes. What’s fading or no longer as interesting as it once was may be exposed and possibly cast aside. A promising opportunity is waiting in the wings to be discovered or noticed. In any case an old focus or life direction is likely to have “run it’s course” no longer holding the promise it once did. Accepting the rewards you’ve earned while setting your sites in a new direction might be wise.
A Sun-Venus conjunction in Aries is likely to put you in the limelight. You could benefit from bold/risky, self-centered actions that keep the focus on you. It pays to throw something fascinating into the mix.
It’s worth mentioning, though, that Chiron in Aries, the asteroid of pain, vulnerability, fear of self-assertion, or lack of confidence plays a role in putting and keeping you in the spotlight. You might need to take the courageous action you’re most afraid to take. Pushing through rather than backing down is a personal victory with wide-ranging, positive implications for the future.
Saturn trines the full Moon providing structure and support for success and the part of yourself that’s approaching “full bloom” status.
Jupiter sextiles Juno – the asteroid of committed relationships. Something more liberating, expansive, and encouraging is thrown into the mix. But this could amount to nothing if you fail to say what needs to be said, refuse to share your dreams, deepest thoughts, or fall into something resembling victimization.
Every aspect and planet has a more powerful effect under a lunation. Initiating communication this week within the realm of a parent/child relationship tends to work strongly in your favor as you attempt to cultivate something better.

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
This full Moon emphasizes the current nature of the relationship you have with yourself. A blind spot is illuminated and exposed in ways that clarify and open new doors. A challenge may be thrown in your direction. You might need to push through doubts or a lack of confidence to fully embrace new opportunities centering around communication and connections. It’s likely you’ve recently gained some new insights within the realm of relationships and your chosen area of expertise that could be shared with the public. That could make you vulnerable. You might feel like backing down when you need to push through. The challenge involves putting into words an idea that’s hard to convey. There are rewards in the form of strengthening self-confidence for pushing through rather than backing down. What you have to teach or convey may be sensitive, personal, hard to put into words, or understand. You may have barely grasped the fragile or confusing essence of what you have to share. But there’s something fascinating you have to share that could enrich the general conversation. It’s time to move on from an old story or playbook. It’s time to begin cultivating what you’ve dreamed of cultivating. Most promising are mother/child or parent/child relationships and mentoring opportunities that tend to benefit from communication efforts. Listening for “the feeling behind the words” seems important.
TAURUS (April 21-May 21)
Mars/North node in your sector of personal resources and money could have you newly focused on financial matters, joint finances, or an old way of relating to a financial partner.

Under this full Moon your 12th house is “loaded.” There’s a lot you’re keeping to yourself, hiding from view – maybe some lies you’re telling yourself, or genuine confusion and misunderstanding.

Under this full Moon the source of your anger may be illuminated, newly empowering you in ways you haven’t previously been. You might see more clearly the source of a vulnerability that keeps you isolated, unavailable, in hiding, or clinging to your privacy. There’s a fascinating mysterious aura that surrounds you within the public realm. Others may sense your unusual and liberating leadership style elevating you as a role model. You might want to “play that up” as you unravel an “old story” characterized by mistrust, financial complications, intimacy issues, and fear of confronting the truth. Moving away from a vulnerability related to being victimized or rejected seems wise. Reaching out moves you in a promising direction.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
This week Mercury, your chart ruler, is offering you a challenging choice related to your profession or highest goals and aspiration.

Being willing to cultivate what makes you fascinating to yourself and others seems wise. Many Gemini’s feel victimized by a career choice, their status, life direction, lack of a supportive career environment, or the feeling that nothing solid or long-lasting will take hold.

Information related to your health, work, or usual routines clashes with something promising and expansive related to travel, higher education, publishing, and the legal or official aspects of a situation.

You may need to be officially qualified, completely healed, or totally certain the you will not experience or repeat a humiliating defeat. It might take some time to get things in order.

Mercury in elusive, non-committal Pisces squares Mars, your chart ruler, in Gemini in the 8th house of a “personal, transformative confrontations with the truth.” Avoidance is a strategy that seems to protect you from exposure and vulnerability. But Scorpio tends revert back to square when failing to muster the courage to fully align themselves with what or whom they love. You may insist on having a “net” beneath you to “catch your “inevitable” fall. But Mars retains his integrity by being willing to risk it all when the fear factor is high because you can trust yourself and your instincts. The issue here is the relationship you have with yourself, a lack of trust, and a “blind spot” where keeping relationships stable and in balance is a challenge.
