Full Moon in Libra: The Past Comes Knocking (Dr Bairavee Balasubramaniam)

Mercury Retrograde´s prominent role during this Full Moon brings back the past in a way that influences our choices for the future.

I´ve noticed that themes, questions or events that occurred when Uranus was at 12-13 Aries (2013-2014) are coming back to the fore. These degrees correspond with Mercury´s movement in the build-up to this Full Moon.

I feel that we are also being asked to look at the karma arising from events that occurred when Pluto transited 7-8 Capricorn (2011-2013).

So much has happened in the world, in our individual lives since then. I remember writing on these alignments and knowing that we are yet to see the ripening of the seeds we set as a collective.

Mars (7 Capricorn) and Saturn (8 Capricorn) square, whilst the Sun (10 Aries) and Mercury (13 Aries) oppose the Full Moon (10 Libra).Those with placements near 7-13 Cancer will experience this as a Grand Cardinal Cross. (Remember the major ones in 2012 and 2014?)

This Full Moon asks us to look at the questions that we, as individuals and a collective, have been wrangling with for the past 8 years.

Have we found a true, just, equitable way to find balance in our personal lives?

Our families?

Have we found a career or vocation that will ultimately lead to the creation of a worthwhile legacy?

These are times in which the pause that Libra brings to the decision-making process is priceless. Think things through before committing to any key decisions at this time. Remember to consider the basic, practical needs of life and how best to secure them.

Venus at 0 Taurus reminds us to take whatever ideas, questions, energy, dilemmas or crises that occur right now and to look at them through pragmatic eyes. We´re asked to remember to stay rooted and grounded in these times of change.

You may want to postpone major decisions until April 30th, when Mercury will return to 13 Aries. Let the dust settle before coming to a conclusion. (Just after the Full Moon in Scorpio)

From a larger perspective, whatever we are working through is being influenced by forces and alignments that will take a while to find some kind of resolution.

Vesta (The Priestess) is at 29´33 Sagittarius, squaring Chiron (The Wounded Healer-Teacher) at 29´02 Pisces. Vesta will retrograde to this position again on June 15 – and once again on September 16. Her role in this drama encourages us to commit to paths of service (not servitude) that take us towards Truth.
