you saw me standing alone
without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for
And then they suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper
Please adore me
And when I looked
The moon had turned to gold
Billie Holiday - Blue Moon Lyrics | MetroLyrics
This Libra Full Moon Blue Moon really stirs the relationship arena. Libra, the symbol of the justice scales, proclaims fairness and equality. When we meet the sign of Libra in the zodiac, we bring in the energy of another, and how to balance the give and take.
When we look at the axis of Aries and Libra, we are in the polarity of Self and Other. The Sun is in Aries hanging tight with Mercury retrograde which is walking us right down memory lane or unfinished business lane. We may interact with those we need to say something to, an old friend may suddenly appear.
Aries is about bravery and the courage to be yourself, the Warrior is the archetype. Libra is fed by connection with others and pursues harmony. Libra is keen to see many sides of a situation, which leaves the Libran somewhat undecided. The goal is to strike a well-rounded choice after considering all positions.
At play in this Full Moon moment is Saturn and Mars in Capricorn. They are providing tension to this relationship axis and Saturn is not ready to suffer fools. Saturn in Capricorn yearns for commitment and structure. If the plan ain't working, ditch the plan and get one that works. Mars can be punchy and lack patience when the fire and passion are ignited making for a warning to watch the temper these days or you may catch yourself leaving some words rather left unsaid. It is in what we say 'balsalmic phase' to Saturn or the final stage which may lead to endings.
As the Sun, Mercury, Moon, Saturn, and Mars are in Cardinal signs, this is also beginning energy or energy that ignites the new. As the Moon shines a bright light on where we are in our relationships, our relationship to ourselves and others. What are the messages? Are there adjustments to be made in our relationships? Are we in need of loving ourselves more? How have our dependencies on others become out of balance? Are we unwilling to lean on others and trust or are we not taking our own responsibility for ourselves? How can we offer more of ourselves to others while still maintaining our power and passion?
This image of the Moon and the rock formation depicts Libra. You can see the rocks are leaning on each other to make an arc. If one rock moves, the balance would be off and the formation would crumble. These rocks have found just the right amount of pressure and weight to pull this off. This is what we strive for in relating- perfect harmony and balance, give-take, trusting the other 'rocks' can take your weight, offering your support and structure for the other 'rocks'.
