Full Moon in Libra – April 10/11, 2017

Relationships are the flavour of this weeks Libra Full Moon on the 10/11 April.    

You may have already felt quite an intense polarity building – one that is calling us to take a leap out of our heads and move deep into our Hearts. 

The pull of opposing forces is so strong, you may find yourself oscillating between happiness & apathy, wealth & poverty, lust & comfort at the drop of a hat.   You may at times feel deliciously sexy & running hot through your trantric desires…. and then suddenly feel the cool embrace to retreat within, akin to the Hermit in the Tarot.

Please keep reading down the page where I share with you the following:

  • General Meaning of the Energy of Full Moons
  • Energy of our April 10/11, Full Moon
  • Energy of other Aspects – Uranus, Jupiter, Spica, Arcturus, Retro Plants & Galactic Centre/Saturn that are contribute to this months Full Moon energy.

Once again we have a very powerful month ahead…. sharing with you how to make the most of these truly transformational celestial events ☆


Moon_FullThe mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the Full Moon.  During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.

The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour & consciousness.  In addition, during a Full Moon, both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

During the LIBRA Full Moon, the moon is reflecting the light of the SUN in ARIES.

This is a full moon to acknowledge the world around you is but a reflection of you.

This full moon highlights that underneath the physical facade, we are all the same… and united in our commonality we can change the world for the better.

It is our amazing diversity (Aries) that creates the whole in balance and harmony (Libra) – so lets all join together in a Heart-Space this full moon and have gratitude for the amazing array of life on this planet and honour the unity of all creation.

This full moon is the first of three powerful full moons as follows:

1. Christ Full Moon – April 10/11, 2017   (Sun in Aries)
Honour of the Christ within all of us / within all of Creation

2. Wesak Full Moon* – May 10/11, 2017  (Sun in Taurus)
Buddha’s birthday, honouring the God within all of us / within all of Creation.

3. Goodwill / World Invocation Day Full Moon – June 9, 2017 (Sun in Gemini)
Honouring of spiritual unity in humanity.

Wesak (or Vesak) is the first full Moon in Taurus – the time when the veil is thinnest between the higher dimensional planes (6th Dimension Pleiades, 7th Dimension Sirius & 8th Dimension Galactic Core) and the Earthly plane (1st Dimension Crystalline Earth’s Heart).

On Wesak, we commemorate the birth, enlightenment and the passing of Buddha – all of which took place during the Sun in Taurus Full Moon. 

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the spiritual ruler of Earth. Venus represents the Divine Feminine – the Mother Mary (May is the Month of Mary).   During the Wesak Full Moon it is said that a divine Pentagram of Venusian Light opens a portal to Shambhala (the number 11 in numerology) through our Hearts.

We are called on the Wesak Full Moon to SURRENDER (number 5 in numerology – the Pentagram) and simply receive the LIGHT (11 in numerology), the ENERGY (11 in numerology) & HEALING (11 in numerology).

We then emerge from the Wesak Full Moon in an awakened state of WISDOM (11 in numerology) & ENLIGHTENMENT (11 in numerology) = 11:11

ENERGY: Other Full Moon Aspects

We have so many other prominent astrological aspects this week, that our April 2017 Full Moon is feel quite intense.

As I mentioned at the top of the page, you maybe feeling the pull of opposing forces in a strong way, having you oscillate between happiness & apathy, wealth & poverty, lust & comfort at the drop of a hat.   You may at times feel deliciously sexy & running hot through your trantric desires…. and then suddenly feel the cool embrace to retreat within, akin to the Hermit in the Tarot.

Sharing with you the energy of the major planetary aspects of our April Full Moon to help you embrace the highest outcome.  You may also like to refer to the image right (click on image to enlarge).

URANUS opposition MOON & conjunct SUN

With Uranus, simply ‘expect the unexpected’.  Uranus is like a wildcard of the pack, unpredictable, original and out of the box thinking.  Uranus can spark revolutions as it has its gaze on more humanitarian, freedom loving and unconventional pursuits. 

During this Full Moon, Uranus (24.170 Aries) is conjunct the Sun (21.330 Aries) and hence in opposition to the Moon (21.330 Libra) – creating a very emotionally charged Full Moon.

You may feel stuck in a situation/relationship in your life and have a compelling desire to break free or escape from the turmoil.  Try not to create too much drama for yourself (in other words don’t let your head get too carried away with your story) or make any impulsive decisions during this Full Moon aspect.  It would be more wise to allow the Sun in Aries show you a ‘higher’ vision of what is possible and surrender to these insights from a place of Love, Compassion & Grace. 

JUPITER (retrograde) conjunct MOON & opposition Sun / Uranus

Jupiter (abundance, luck & expansion) is currently expressing itself through Libra (harmony, justice, truth, partnership, social, diplomacy) until Oct 2017 AND currently moving in a retrograde transit through Libra until June 10, 2017.  

During this Full Moon, retrograde Jupiter (17.490 Libra) is conjunct the Moon (21.330 Libra) and hence in opposition to the Sun (21.330 Aries) conjuncting Uranus (24.170 Aries).

With Jupiter conjuncting the Full Moon, a little honesty is being called into play.  Time to take a REALLY big look at yourself and own the ‘source’ of problems in your relationships.   Our April Full Moon is in Libra (ruled by Venus) and Venus Retrograde is conjunct Chiron this Full Moon… meaning some of your deepest woundings in relationships maybe coming to the surface – rich & ripe for deep inner-healing.   Let the healing begin and find solace in your heart as Venus turns direct again on April 14/15, 2017.

GRAND CROSS – Jupiter/Moon, Uranus Saturn, Vesta & Pluto/Juno

A highly charged GRAND CROSS (or Golden Square) is taking the energy to a higher octave again this April Full Moon – with  JUPITER/MOON in opposition to SUN/URANUS and squaring both VESTA (24.130 Cancer) and  JUNO (16.120 Capricorn) which is conjuncting PLUTO (19.230 Capricorn).

VESTA is an asteroid/minor planet and rules Virgo.  Energetically VESTA is the Priestess, the Goddess that flames the embers of your deepest passions, urges you to play out your tantric desires and guides you into being deliciously ripe, rich & abundant.   VESTA in Cancer is deeply emotional & drawing upon karmic bonds with family/past lives.

JUNO is an asteroid and energetically it is very similar to VENUS – though JUNO leans toward committment (whereas Venus tends to be more about initial attraction & desire).  JUNO in Capricorn is practical, pragmatic and ready to do what it takes to make things work.

PLUTO is the planet of transformation and induces us to look into the deep recesses of our subconscious and transform that which doesn’t serve.  Of course we all have free will & choice… but Pluto has a unique way of pushing your buttons and ‘making you’ transform or else !  Pluto can be pretty intense, but it can also make things happen !  Pluto is about death & birth, destruction & reformation, and endings & beginnings.

So, as I am sure you can gather from reading everything above, you may be feeling pulled in many directions of the Heart/Mind during this GRAND CROSS Full Moon.  

You may feel frustrated in the story of your relationships or feel a deep sadness/loss over what your head says is missing… what you can see ‘others’ have and a deep desire/wish that you had that too !

Pluto will be calling you deep into the recesses of your shadow to discover where this story of lack/unlucky in love/poverty/jealousy/limitation is coming from and JUNO won’t let you ease up until the full story has been uncovered.  And URANUS & JUPITER will be meddling in this process with a tug-of-war battle… taking you deep into your karmic / ancestral / familial traits.

This is a POWERFUL Full Moon to re-write and become very clear about what the energy of the Goddess / Priestess / Seductress / Tantric-ess means to you.  AND – and this is the IMPORTANT PART – then be willing to step into the HEART of what you feel with exhuberant joy… particularly as VENUS moves direct on the 14/15 April.   

The choices you make NOW will ripple through ALL of your relationships over the comings months (up until our September eclipses).   You have the opportunity to transmute deep ancestral karmic threads and move into a whole new sphere of beingness in the relationship with self.

On a greater planetary scale, I see the polarity of relationships taking centre stage in the lead up to the eclipse season over August/Sept.  We will be faced with the security/safety of staying small, doing what our community leaders, government heads, corporate powers say is the ‘right thing to do’… OR choosing to own our power and follow what our HEART knows is TRUTH & the path of living authentically. 

Inevitably, this can lead to destruction, a battle (both inside and out) and a war of sides.   As you follow your HEART choose to do so from a place of LOVE, COMPASSION & KINDNESS… which will help transmute the trauma and keep you grounded in the face of fear.


Add to the mix of our Full Moon / Jupiter conjunction, we also have two Fixed Stars SPICA & ARCTURUS conjuncting the Moon.

Here is a great picture of the Moon, Jupiter & Spica on April 10/11.

SPICA is the brightest Fixed Star in the Virgo Constellation and exudes energy similar to Mars & Venus.   She seeks to move, express, create and express sexuality.  Spica charges are kundalini energy to attract wealth, sexual partners & success… and on a higher octave the channelling of mystical wisdom.

ARCTURUS is a Fixed Star in the Bootes Constellation and exudes energy similar to Mars & Jupiter.  He seeks prosperity, public recognition, fame, fortune & mastery.

Both these Fixed Stars are conjuncting our 21.330 Libra Full Moon – SPICA (24.050 Libra) & ARCTURUS (24.290 Libra).

Once again they are amplifying the ‘relationship’ theme of the GRAND CROSS.. gifting us insight to where we may prostitute ourselves or sells ourselves out in order to been ‘seen’ as successful, attractive or having achieved.  They will inspire us to take a higher path, a path that serves something greater than ourselves and becomes the sources of these qualities in others.


And to make this FULL MOON & her associated aspects even more interesting this month, we have 4 planets in Retrograde (appearance of moving backwards) – VENUS, MERCURY, JUPITER & SATURN.

When a planet is Retrograde it’s energy becomes more inward.  During this inward phase, we have the opportunity to review or reflect our ‘inner-self’ as it relates to the past.  The past maybe this life, or could even relate to previous incarnation of the Soul. Whilst a retrograde planet can have a bad rap of creating chaos within our lives, in actual fact these ‘challenges’ produce wonderful opportunities for growth.   As the pot is ‘stirred up’ and what is unconscious comes to the surface… it represents a wonderful opportunity for healing, shifting old energy and being greater degrees of joy and self-love.

VENUS: represents the Divine Feminine archetype, the embodiment of love, beauty, sensuality, passion & desire.  Venus is often experienced as the great attractor – both how we attract things into our lives and our attractions to things in our lives. By things I am referring to relationships, resources, possessions, & money.   When VENUS transits retrograde, you may find that the world takes on a different hue.  What you previously experienced as beautiful, seductive and tantalisingly sexy, now tends to be seen through different eyes.  This is not bad, but rather a primal urge to move deeply into the recessess of the Goddess and uncover a more transcendent LOVE & beauty than you have ever experienced before.   Venus Retrograde makes way for the for the flourishing of a deeply primal ancient feminine energy that is enduring and deeply transformative.

MERCURY: rules all communications such as computers, phones, travel, electronics and all business/personal communications & documentations.  When mercury moves retrograde and into the darker recesses of our psyche, this may herald a time of misunderstandings, mis-communications, computers & electronics crashing and plans going haywire !

Rather than perceive Mercury Retrograde as a negative time, I prefer to work with the energy as a wonderful ‘inward’ time to recalibrate my visions and move forward in conscious action when Mercury moves direct.   It is also a fabulous time to tie up all those lose ends, old projects and things that you just never got around to finishing.

Of course if things do start to go ‘pear-shaped’, well that just means it is a time to do something else, or to do the job differently… see it as a time to learn a new skill, think laterally and solve problems from a higher level of consciousness.

JUPITER: rules expansion, freedom, wisdom, travel, foreign affairs, abundance and good luck.  It is a social and jolly planet, working with the collective as it spends about 1 year in every sign of the zodiac.

When Jupiter is retro, this energy is reflected inward and we are guided to reevaluate our spiritual beliefs, our societal ethics and our philosophical approach to life.  It is a time of truth-seeking and finding the deeper meaning in all aspects of life. Travel plans can be delayed or cancelled during Jupiter retro.  This is a time to slow down and give focus to your personal belief systems and understandings of success and abundance.  This is also not the best time to take big risks, or spend up big.. but rather do your research, ponder and follow your inner-guidance when Jupiter moves direct.

SATURN: is referred to as the planet of karma, discipline or the dispenser of justice.  It is a factual planet that induces us to face our personal reality, and is thorough, unrelenting and breaks down our control issues.  I like to view Saturn as a wise old sage.

When Saturn is retro, it is not a time to take short-cuts, but an opportunity to take things slowly and do it correctly the first time around.. or you may find you will be revisiting the project over and over again.  It is a time to understand your limitations or limitations of those around you and practice patience.   Authority maybe also be an issue at this time, and you may feel like ‘fighting the system’ be it in your family, place of work or the greater sphere of community or government.  When Saturn is retrograde there also tends to be a lack of boundaries.. so be mindful of saying YES to everything and then feeling overwhelmed and a loss of power.

Take the opportunity during Saturn retro to do some deep soul searching, assess what needs to change and prepare for this change once Saturn moves direct.  It is a time to assess our failures, learn from our mistakes and emerge from the introspection with wisdom and understanding.


The Galactic Centre is the central black/white hole of our Milky Way Galaxy – or as I refer to in Crystal Light Healing, the 8th Dimensional Portal of the Cosmic Gateway (Cosmic Heart), that is a mirror reflection of the 1st Dimensional Portal of the Earth Gateway (Earths Heart).

The Galactic Centre is a powerful transmitter of energy waves known as ‘Waves of Love’.  Since 1987, the vibrational frequency of these Waves of LOVE have been increasing in intensity and will continue to do so as we move toward 2040, the Golden Age. These Waves of Love are facilitating a shift in consciousness; an evolutionary leap for humanity into a new Earth; an awakening of humanity from the dream and into a multi-dimensional reality. 

Coming into 2017, the Galactic Centre was/is:

Saturn is the bringer of wisdom, our deep exploration of our karmic-ancestral beliefs & imprintings and the awakening to wisdom of the Soul.   When Saturn conjuncts the Galactic Centre… we are bringing an end to the old stories of our lives, our world, our human experience and simply setting ourselves FREE.  We close the chapter on our lives of having to follow rules that constrain our wildly passionate Hearts and step into an awakened story of divine beauty and Sacred Wealth of Soul.

As Saturn conjuncts our Galactic Centre over the following months in the lead up to our August 2017 eclipses, those who are prepared to embrace change with WHOLEHEART, who are prepared to step into the unknown (as scary and as vulnerable as that may make them feel)… will catalyse a tsunami of LOVE WAVES set to transform the world stage.. unlike anything we have seen/experienced in our lifetime.
