April 16th and 17th marks the April Full Moon in harmonious and compassionate Libra.
This beautiful Full Moon not only shines with the peaceful energy of Libra but also amplifies the cosmic vibrational frequencies of the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction we talked about last week.
What that means is that we have a burst of extra powerful energy in the skies over the next week, and really for the entire month of April and May!
The Full Moon is always a time of heightened emotions and heightened intuition, shining a great deal of attention on any tension that may exist in our lives and acting as a call to let it go.
You may have already started to feel this energy before the Full Moon, and certainly, the energy will continue for the following week.
While Libra represents balance and harmony, that doesn’t mean we automatically experience those states just because of the Full Moon.
We must look at what is not working in our lives and adjust accordingly, make any necessary changes in order to create a new path forward to a more harmonious existence.
Another aspect to keep in mind is the powerful energy of the dwarf planet Eris, which is very active under this Full Moon.
Eris is bringing some powerful feminine energy, think feminine warrior!
It is known to bring trouble and chaos, but don’t let it worry you.
What this feminine energy really brings (if you’re in alignment and aware), is an amazing, raw power that you can channel.
Think of the mother who protects her children with fear in the face of danger.
Or the woman who knows 100% who she is and how strongly her energy magnetizes others.
Eris is about feminine wisdom, whether you are male or female, whatever your gender expression – you can embrace the divine feminine power that Eris brings during this Full Moon.
The presence of Eris at this time can cause some tension for you, but in the end it is a force for good.
A road that leads you to greater harmony, leaving something negative and heavy in the past.
Libra should focus on our relationships and close connections with others, so this may arise as a theme in your life during the Full Moon.
Ritual of Cleansing
The following ritual is perfect for you to perform in the days after the Full Moon.
It will help you to tap into the cosmic energies and let the Universe guide you towards a more abundant, proactive and aligned life by raising your vibration and connecting with your higher self.
Cleanse your energy field and surroundings using any tool or method you prefer (sage, palo santo, essential oils, candles, crystals).
You can say the following or simply make the intention to clear your space and energy field.
I pray that my energy field and surroundings are cleansed and purified.
I allow the bright light of the full moon to illuminate and dissolve all that is no longer needed from my aura and from this space.
I pray that the higher divine frequencies clear my frequency of any negativity or dense energy and raise my vibration to the most aligned and perfect frequency.
This space is now filled with abundance, positivity and pure light energy.
Now, sit in your cleared space with a crystal of your choice in your hand and close your eyes.
(Rose quartz, clear quartz, or Hematite are great for this purpose but any crystal you are drawn to will be perfect for you)
Let your breathing become regular and easy, as you relax and meditate.
Try to simply clear your mind of worries and sit with your breaths and exhalations until it feels right for you.
When you are ready, open your eyes and take a few moments to stretch or have a glass of water.
Now, grab a notebook or journal. At the top of the page write, “My intuition tells me that…”
Then start writing everything that comes to your mind.
Let your unconscious speak through your pen.
Don’t stop to edit or think about what you’re writing, let it flow.
Even if you are writing things that make no sense, the idea is to write for at least 10 minutes of free flow.
This exercise is about listening and connecting with your higher self, your spirit guides, and your intuition.
The deep part of you that only knows the truth inside.
Whatever insights emerge, keep in mind the themes of this Full Moon in Libra:
Relationships, Harmony, Feminine Power.
When you have finished writing, read your notes and see what makes sense to you.
Try to sound in the emotions rather than using your analytical mind.
Use this ritual to cleanse yourself of any tension held deep and cleanses any negativity or anxiety with this writing exercise.
Even if you don’t know exactly what you are bringing to the surface, trust that the Universe has your back and is guiding you to release what you need.
Trust the wisdom within and practice believing in it.
To finish the ritual do something that grounds and centers you.
Take a bath with essential oils, go for a walk outside in nature, stretch and make sure to hydrate yourself with fresh spring water as much as possible.
Happy Full Moon Energies!
