Blue Moon Magic!

Today, March 31, is a Blue Full Moon, rising in the sign of Libra. A Blue Moon is what the second Full Moon in a month. There are a couple of things making this one very special. March is the 3rd month and the number 3 relates to the Divine Trinity. This is all about bringing balance to your mind, body, and spirit. In astrology, the number 3 is also the number of divine communication, and represents the harmony that is achieved when you are in communication with all aspects of your mind, body, and soul. Libra is the sign that radiates calm in chaotic situations. This actually bodes well for this lunation that has some challenging aspects. It's fortuitous because having two Full Moons in the same calendar month signifies an opportunity to really release and the Divine Trinity can help you do that. The good thing about challenging aspects is that they force you work hard and improve yourself. The one positive aspect in the full moon chart is helping you positively transform your life in powerful ways. This is a full moon to work with your fears and release them from your subconscious.

A huge challenge with this Full Moon is the fact that we're smack dab in the middle of Mercury Retrograde. This makes communication difficult, but with this particular Moon, it will make it hard to understand our own feelings and even harder to share them. Try to fully understand a subject before trying to discuss it, or you might find yourself embarrassed by a lack of understanding. Not to make a political point, but keep a watch on the White House for the next two weeks, you might see this very scenario play out in real time.

Compounding the trouble caused by Mercury Retrograde, we have the Full Moon square to Saturn and Mercury. You needed more trouble, right? This particular combination tends to bring negative emotions to the forefront, along with sadness and loneliness. The way to combat this is to ground yourself and release those feelings and fears, either ritually or otherwise. Delving into a project, whether cerebral (like writing or creating) or physical (exercise, gardening) is helpful to deflect such feelings.

We also have Mars conjunct Saturn, and Moon square Mars, which can cause much friction if not handled correctly. Both aspects bring out long buried angry, resentful, and/or revengeful feelings. It also causes us to rush into things without thinking due to impatience. The easiest way to get around this is to first be aware of everything that comes out of your mouth, and second, don't take any risks during this period. Don't make any uninformed decisions, jump to conclusions, and most importantly, take responsibility for your own emotional reactions.

There are good things about this Full Moon, as we mentioned above. You will become aware of how your words affect others, and you'll be able to see it in others. The sign of Libra is ruled by Venus, the Goddess of Love. The planet Venus enters into the sign of Taurus at the same time as the Full Moon enters into the sign of Libra. This signifies an activation of the Divine Feminine through beauty and grace. Make sure to set aside some time to glorify that with some music, communing with nature, and meditation. All will be good if you keep true to your core values.

Until next month, and may you all be blessed!
