Full Moon in Libra ~ March 28, 2021

My March 2021 Forecast noted:

The March 28 Full Moon in Libra occurs opposite a tight conjunction of Sun, Venus and Chiron at 2:48 p.m. Eastern. This “Storm Moon” also occurs on Palm Sunday, which celebrates Jesus’ triumphant procession into Jerusalem. The joyful combo of Sun/Son, Goddess of Love and Beauty — conjunct Wounded Healer Chiron on a Full Moon, on the last Sunday before Easter — foreshadows the pietà. Read: exuberant joy, followed by grief, then some sort of resurrection. In the Christian tradition, Holy Week runs the full gamut of emotions. This Full Moon is exactly quincunx the rebel liberator Uranus in Taurus. It implies celebration, followed by an unexpected cleansing, redemption and healing. All tempered by Love.

Two other players join the mix: Trans-Neptunian-Object (TNO) Logos conjunct the Full Moon in Libra, and Asteroid Kassandra conjunct the Sun, Venus and Chiron in Aries.

Logos means “The Word” and represents rational thought, Truth and Order, as well as “the rational motivation behind something.” (More on Logos here.) I find this an interesting conjunction with the typically irrational Moon. The idea of Truth and Order also brings nuances with the sign Libra symbolized by the balanced scales of Justice.

In Greek mythology, Kassandra (or Cassandra) was a priestess of Apollo who spoke true prophecies that no one believed. This curse hurt both Kassandra and those who refused to listen to her warnings. Conjunct Venus, the Sun and Chiron, this Kassandra placement could shine love, light and healing on previously discarded prophecies. On the other hand, the wound and isolation (Chiron) of speaking a truth that no one believes (Kassandra) could increase by glossing over truth with just a superficial (Venus) nod.

Astrology reveals the archetypes and their alignments, but as with any party, we cannot know for sure how all the guests will behave! We can say with certainty that this Full Moon brings potential for healing by speaking the Truth in Love. Energies favor logical explanations for feelings, and revealed prophecies in context of a triumphant return.

If you’re the black sheep of your family and want to reconnect, this might be a good weekend to try. It would also be a good time for journaling, forgiveness of self and others, and turning towards the past for inspiration. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is:

PHASE 189 (LIBRA 9°): THREE “OLD MASTERS” HANGING ON THE WALL OF A SPECIAL ROOM IN AN ART GALLERY.

KEYNOTE: The need to return to source during a confused search for new value in a chaotic society. (More here.)

The connection to an art gallery jumped out at me, because the February 27, 2021 Full Moon in Virgo also dealt with art, in that case “AN EXPRESSIONIST PAINTER AT WORK.” The Full Moon in Libra focuses on “‘OLD MASTERS’ hanging on the wall of a special room in an art gallery.” To me, this speaks of creation and progression. Not just any old artists, but “old masters” from whom new artists (or leaders) can draw inspiration and create new forms tied to old ones.

This honoring of art and old masters fits well with the energies of 2021’s main astrological signature — Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus.

Collectively, we feel tensions between tradition and revolution. With each planet in signs the other would feel more comfortable in, this tension could play out as paradox. Sometimes people rebel by being more traditional, not less. Sometimes revolutionaries push for change that leads to greater, not fewer restrictions. Not all revolutions bring freedom. Not all coups bring oppression. This jousting between old and new, progressive and conservative, innovative and traditional runs all year, and in complex ways.

We can’t expect easy answers, but this Full Moon could encourage more balanced discussion. Perhaps Logos will temper some of the lunar emotional flare-ups.

In his Sabian Symbol for Libra 9, Dane Rudhyar goes on to note: At this fourth stage of the thirty-eighth sequence it is suggested that in the process of “Transfiguration” the presence of the greatest moments of the past is called upon, as Moses and Elijah were invoked in Jesus’ Transfiguration. The seed of the new day depends upon the seed of yesteryear for an experience of the cyclic continuity of spirit. This is the basis for the institutionalized ideal of APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION, the guruampara (an uninterrupted chain of gurus) of Indian tradition. (More here.)

“Transfiguration” refers to Jesus as he became radiant in glory on the mountain in front of his disciples, Peter, John and James. Moses and Elijah appear next to Jesus, and they all talk together. I mention this, because it further echoes the Logos and Kassandra conjunctions. Moses represents the Law, and Elijah represents the Prophets. I don’t know how this will play out, but I pay attention to double whammy symbols. You could even call it a triple whammy in that the Full Moon occurs on Palm Sunday, another key Biblical moment of “recognition.”

The Transfiguration, by Raphael, 1520

As always, how this Full Moon affects you depends on your natal chart, as well as on what levels you choose to engage these energies. In a world grown increasingly shrill and hysterical, this weekend offers a chance to explain actions, to speak the Truth in Love, and to heal through a delicate balance of rational, intuitive, emotional and prophetic awareness.

We won’t figure it all out all at once. The story unfolding through the sky and in ourselves transcends easy explanations on any one level. We can keep paying attention, though. We can open our minds and hearts to possibilities of strange occurrences in dimensions beyond what we see with our 3D eyes. We can honor our own roles as co-creators, and we can explore our own rules, regulations and desires for revolution.

We can also commit to shining in our own most authentic, loving ways. When we radiate our inner truth in the world’s darkness, one by one, we light up the world. And each other. We are interconnected in ways we can’t yet fully fathom.

Happy Full Moon! Love and blessings to all.
