Monday – Thursday
Moon in Virgo square Saturn in Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter in Virgo
Aspect strength: weak transit
Aspect duration: Sunday evening till Wednesday morning (Central European Time)
During the first few days of this week the Moon in occupying Virgo. This is an appropriate energy to start a week with in general. Our focus is directed into fulfilling our needs for emotional stability and security by implementing a more responsible, dutiful behavior. Developing practical, working or any other kind of skills and talents is also favorable in achieving emotional satisfaction. Keeping things and daily rhythm on a certain organized level will be important to some, especially to people with strong Virgo energy in their charts. They also have the opportunity to gain the most from this Moon by satisfying their needs in the upper mentioned ways.
To others this Moon might prove to be rather stressful, especially for those who possess very little Virgo or earthly elements. Her influence might be felt as a kind of emotional pressure which can bring more stress. Usually the beginning of every week is exceptionally difficult as people need to get back into that weekly routine of their daily lives. This Moon emphasizes this fact and puts it even more in to our faces. 🙂 She will affect the moods of some people in a negative way as she will additionally stress the importance of performing our daily tasks and sticking to our routines or creating new ones. That can prove to be an emotional burden for some. Such an influence can bring more work, there might be an increase in daily obligations and duties.
On the brighter side, organizational skills can improve, our ability to analyze, plan or strategize as well. We can brighten our negative moods by putting ourselves in a position of offering service to others and making ourselves useful in some way. This can positively influence our self-worth and our emotional stability.
This Moon will reactivate a square between Jupiter and Saturn on Tuesday. These two planets are currently making an exact aspect, so this Moon can trigger their energy potential more significantly than she did in the past. Jupiter in Virgo represents the growing awareness of our earthly skills, talents, health issues (body and soul) and our abilities to serve ourselves and the world. Saturn in Sagittarius represents the authority, repression and restrictiveness of our personal or global traditional worldly beliefs. As much as Saturn restricts it also performs reality checks. It will show us where we are wrong, what kind of thinking or perception we need to abandon and he will offer us new understanding.
This square between Jupiter and Saturn is about learning something new, gaining new knowledge while at the same time abandoning or at least examining the validity of old beliefs. The process might prove tiring, stressful and frustrating especially for those with strong Virgo and Sagittarius energies in their charts. The feeling of stagnation can be felt although the individual is actually ‘moving forward’, making progress, but at a slower pace. So, the Moon joining this tug of war brings a lot of emotional energy into play. How will this make you feel? You could experience emotional frustration, impatience, anxiety, stress or concern. If you are expecting something to come your way, either by knowing it for certain or just by hoping and trusting your intuition, be patient. If there is some change that you are sure is going to influence you quite a bit, be patient, the process here is much more important than the final outcome. It is the process itself that brings awareness and knowledge that will prepare you to properly savor and understand the end results of this journey.
This will affect Virgos, Sagittarians the most. People with strong mutable, Virgo and Sagittarian energy in their charts will feel this Moon as well.
Lunar eclipse in Libra opposition Mercury in Aries
Aspect strength: Strong monthly aspect
Aspect duration: Generally the entire week while strongest on Wednesday morning till Thursday evening ( Central European Time)
So, this week’s Full Moon is a Lunar eclipse as well and that makes her even more powerful. Full Moons are about monthly energy cycles reaching their climaxes and thus they represent a certain highpoint during the monthly period. Such Moons can bring endings, conclusions, they bring things into fruition. It is a time of harvest when we enjoy or rather more accurately, deal, with the results of certain processes, ventures, journeys and so on.
Full Moons are also about balance since the Moon opposes the Sun at such times. We balance the conscious, more rational energies of the Sun with the more subconscious, impulsive and emotional energies of the Moon. It is a time when the way of the heart challenges the way of the mind. Achieving this balance, satisfying the heart and the mind at the same time is how we exploit the energy of the Moon most efficiently. However, the more powerful the Full Moon is, the more difficult it is to harness its energy efficiently and positively. This is not an absolute rule, but it applies in most cases.
As stated before, this Moon is very strong and also very much about balance since she is a Libra Moon. With the Sun in Aries the axis we are trying to balance is the one of ‘The self vs The other’.
Libra Moon represents the emotional energy that deals with diplomacy, compromise, pacifism, likeability, equality, fairness and balance in general. We will feel the need to balance ourselves with our environment and with our own hearts and minds while dealing with upper mentioned Libra ‘things’. Meeting these needs will make us feel emotionally at peace and stable, while failing in this balancing endeavor will produce negative emotional moods, conflicts of any kind and anxious behavior. Relationships we have with others and with ourselves will be influenced profoundly. Making compromises, achieving equality in our relations, trying to be non conflicting, fair, just and at the same time trying to appear likable will consume a lot of our emotional focus and energy. Paying no attention to these matters under such a Lunar influence will be bad for your own well-being and will spawn great problems. It will mark you quite negatively in the eyes of others. Remember that!
The Sun in Aries will be about asserting the ego and our conscious energy in order to achieve our personal goals, to make our wishes come true. It is a very motivational energy with a great tendency to act. The prime importance here lays in self-interest, while paying attention to other people’s desires, goals, expectations, feelings and agendas is not so much an Aires thing. As with the Libra Moon, do not neglect the importance of expressing your desires, wishes and your healthy ego, as well as boosting your motivational drive. That will move you forward and end the cycle of stagnation and compromise.
So, with this Moon and with this Sun, we want to act, initiate, we want to make things happen, we want to conclude, materialize things. We will seek balance between what we want, how we want it and how all of this ‘wanting’ of ours affects others around us. This is how we will be balancing on the outside. Some people will try to seek this equilibrium on the inside by balancing conflicting energies, deciding what is best, either to assert, to move forward, to act, to initiate something on their own accord or to conform to an idea and to compromise with a certain aspect and situation in their lives.
The third influence comes from Mercury, the planet that influences our communication, mental abilities, thought processes and decision-making abilities. This doesn’t complicate the energy pattern of this Moon but makes this Moon’s energy potential even more straight forward. The search for balance will put a strain on our minds and our interaction with the world.
How can the energies of this Moon play out? We might go through some internal mind battles with ourselves, trying to figure out on how to decide in regards to certain issues, how to balance ourselves out. It could be something mundane, trivial or it could encompass a very significant psychological issue or life situation. This influence can affect the state of our own personal emotional well-being as well as the well-being of our relationships. There could be an increase in action or activity in certain areas of our lives, unexpected events might occur putting us in a position to make up our minds and act, decide. We might be informed of something that we will need to process, thus seeking the upper mentioned balance in order to decide properly and to figure out the best course of action. We might get some important news, or we might learn something new. Communication with others will be influenced by this as well. Be careful to stand up for your self in interactions with others but also pay attention on how your actions and words affect people around you.
As said, Full Moons bring things in fruition, so prepare yourself for activity that will do just that. If you are completing a project, ending a venture, episode or a situation in your life, perhaps even a journey of some kind, this Lunar eclipse might help you or force you to seek conclusion. Increased daily tempo will be present, greater activity and energy output will be required of you. This Lunar eclipse can be quite eventful, keep that in mind. For every conclusion there is also a new beginning, so this Moon might usher you into a ‘new monthly age of being’. You will truly feel the beginning of this new cycle with the New Moon on 7th of April. That energy will give you more clue about what exactly your ‘new monthly mission’ is going to be. But hey, lets save that for another weekly prediction. 🙂
This Lunar eclipse will influence Arians and Libras the most. Other Cardinal signs and people with strong Cardinal, Aries and Libra energy will feel it too.
