The moon is at its fullest on March 18th at 11:55 am PST, 2:55 pm ET, at 26 degrees of Libra. Scroll down for the astrological chart from astro.com.
Today, 4/13, Jupiter is conjunct Neptune in Pisces at 24 degrees. These are the two rulers of Pisces joined together. It is a very auspicious celestial moment. Are you feeling the dreamy energy? I find it hard to ignore! This rare and beautiful aspect hasn't happened since 1856. To add to the magic, Venus is also in Pisces, which is its sign of exaltation. Venus is at its highest vibe, dishing out unconditional love and smooshy creative vibes. If you have important astrological placements around 24 degrees in Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer, Taurus, or Capricorn you could be experiencing some lovely boons around this time.
By Saturday, when the moon is full in Libra, this aspect will still be in strong effect and Mars will have also entered Pisces. That makes four planets in the most mystical sign of the zodiac. Make sure to tune into the forgiving, creative, and spiritual side of this sign and avoid the pull to escapism in more negative ways, like drug and alcohol use (a hazard of Pisces). Venus will also be pleasantly sextile with Mercury and Uranus. Expect the unexpected with communications! Most likely communications will involve compassion and grace.
On a different vibration: the full moon in Libra, (therefore: sun in Aries,) is involved in a cardinal T-square with Pluto in Capricorn. Plus we have Saturn squaring the lunar nodes. More positive: Pluto trines the N Node in Taurus. All in all, I would say this is a better full moon/time period for Pisces and Taurus folx. Generally, those with their sun, moon, and/or Ascendant in the early degrees, 0-17 of all signs will be feeling less strain. This is a very involved full moon!
The moon itself will bring up power struggles between areas of life related to relationships (legal or romantic, this is Libra), self and the things we fight for (Aries), and work or other hierarchical structures like the government (Capricorn). You may be fed up with the power of these Capricorn style entities and their ability to hamper your lifestyle. Pluto, at 28 degrees, is about to exit Capricorn. Don't hold your breath...this slow-moving planet won't permanently leave Capricorn in early 2024. As Pluto floats around the last degree or so of Capricorn recognize where you can take responsibility for your own life or reclaim power. If you don't like our government how can YOU step up and make our democracy represent your interests better? If you are constantly frustrated at work, how can YOU take ownership of your struggles and change how you interface with the job? If you access your power (Pluto) you will no longer feel as victimized; you will have more responsibility. Realize this is a choice. Honor your decision and see it for what it is. During this full moon, responsibilities and the need to maintain power at work or in the system can interfere with personal goals and relationships. Expect that this weekend. Often the way out of T-square stress, especially in a short-lived situation like this is to be nourished by the sign that would complete a square. In this case, that sign is Cancer. Cancer is all about home, family, and taking care of your feelings. I recommend taking Saturday for just that. This tension won't last long--by the time the sun moves into Taurus on Earth day things should feel more at ease.
Saturn in Aquarius squaring the lunar nodes is not feeling great either! This is a longer-lasting aspect. Saturn in Aquarius is wanting to build new structures to better support all of humanity: healthcare, housing, safety nets, smaller carbon footprint etc. This is not working with our personal desires for large homes, furnishings, gardens, and luxury food (N Node in Taurus). If we can find ways to minimize our carbon footprint while improving our physical homelife this is ideal. Or, work on improving our dining experience either while giving food to those in need or by considering our footprint as we choose foods. These are some ways these two energies can work together.
The Piscean energy will be strong through May, 1st. Enjoy the melding feelings. Merge with cool people. Make some art. Take baths and smoke Gentle and Protective or Clear Mind. Sleep extra so you can dream. Listen to your dreams. Record your dreams from sleep and waking time. Find a treasure in this Piscean celestial festival even if you are, so, not that person. There is a gift.
My best to you,
