Partnerships are paramount as we approach the first full moon of the season, a magical pink full moon on April 16th. The need to balance our authenticity, desires, and assertiveness with the needs of others gives this Full Moon the energy of compromise. While the moon appears as a full moon Friday through Monday, it will culminate at 2:55 p.m. EST on Saturday, April 16.
We’re still fresh from the vibes of the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction from the week before, so it’s time to drop those rose-colored glasses and discover that balance. Feeling ready for some revelations?
As with all Full Moons, we are urged to re-evaluate our lives as feedback and information we need to proceed are revealed to us. You see, the full moon is all about culmination, revolution and epiphanies. If you think about it, like the saying “as above, so below,” the moon shines in all its glory above, no part of it hidden. Below, as she is revealed in her glory, are the messages we need to develop.
Strangely, the moments when the moon is at its brightest in the sky are the same moments when the sun is completely opposite it, making room for it to be seen. They are in perfect harmony, balanced, aligned and shining the brightest, reminding us how to find balance in our lives where all parts of us can shine.
The full moon in Libra
Nicknamed the Pink Moon for its spring timing and association with blooming pink wildflowers, the full moon won’t actually light up the sky pink. However, it will spur us on to think pink (as in love) and to examine our relationships with others. The Sun is in headstrong, self-focused, fiery Aries, inviting us to pursue our needs, assert our desires, and launch headfirst into our ideas. Dwelling in intellectual, compromise-oriented Libra, the Moon urges us to see all sides of all circumstances and find the beauty in life. Contrasted with this Full Moon in Libra, we are given an opportunity to learn how to improve our relationships through compromise and compassion while honoring our own individual truth. Yes, it’s kind of a balancing act.
This theme is only reinforced by four other players throwing their energy into the mix. Pluto squares the full moon in Libra, Saturn trine and Neptune and Jupiter in quincunx. It will be a time of adjustment for all of us. Pluto squaring the Full Moon urges an adjustment in the way you experience, wield, and harness power.

Use the full moon in Libra to find balance in relationships
Circumstances may arise that allow you to understand your relationship to power more deeply. Do you stand up for yourself or do you allow others to walk over you? Do you overlook others or do you empower them? What parts of you do you really need to let go of in order to transform?
Looking back at the Neptune-Jupiter conjunction, this energy will still be active – but not positioned harmoniously with this Full Moon. You may also be tasked with evaluating whether your relationship expectations are realistic. Finally, Saturn will give you the support you need to find stability in your decisions and create a more stable foundation for your approach to relationships. Reflection will be key to navigating this complex energy mix.
