April's Pink Libra Full Moon Will Heal You From The Inside Out
Joining Chiron — the wounded healer asteroid.
Spring is looking rosier and rosier by the minute as this month’s pink Libra full moon arrives on April 6 at 12:34 a.m. ET.
The lunation owes its name to the Farmer’s Almanac, which dubs the first full moon of spring as the pink moon. While it would be cool to witness a moon Elle Woods would approve of, the Libra full moon still infuses the cosmos with its romantic and collaborative energy. The people-oriented sign is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, so it shouldn’t come as surprise if you’ve been finding yourself in a charitable mood. Coupled with the more-than-welcome end of winter, the full moon has many of us feeling like social butterflies.
Embrace that energy as this particular moon phase asks how you can find healing through community as the celestial planet will also be in opposition to Chiron, the “wounded healer” asteroid, which just so happens to be situated in Aries. While Libras tend to find strength in numbers, Aries are notoriously independent and self-motivated. This special cosmic contrast invites you to imagine how you can rely on others without surrendering your autonomy. In our individualistic society, it’s not uncommon to believe that we have to shoulder our burdens all on our own, but the Libra full moon reminds you that you can go further together and that there is no shame in asking for help. The air sign is represented by scales, so apply that sense of balance and give yourself the grace to reach out to your inner circle. Think of Chiron as a catalyst to letting go of unresolved tensions. Coinciding with a full moon, which represent the closing of chapters, finding solace in kinship is the key to walking into the new season emotionally balanced.
Setting intentions and grounding yourself during this full moon will be particularly important as it comes just before the Day of Miracles, April 11, when the sun and Jupiter link up in Aries — an astrological event that only takes place every 12 years. This is your sign to take yourself seriously and manifest what you want your life to look to and how you want you to feel over the next few weeks.
