I’m almost positive that the Aries-Libra axis is the sole determiner of our life quality. There are six pairs of polarities in the zodiac and I believe that Aries ruled “me” and Libra ruled “we” is the polarity pair that holds the “both/and” which determines our quality of life. Seeing as this is a post dedicated to the Full Moon in discerning Libra, I’m sure but I’m not convinced.
Aries introduces our sovereignty, autonomy, independence, and desires. Libra introduces our relationship to relationships, trust, and agreement. What is life without our agency and freedom? What is life without relationships and being loved and loving by others? You see, you can’t have one without the other. You can’t have Libra without Aries, vice versa, and generally speaking - you can’t really have anything without “the other”. Which is too complicated of a truth for our deeply polarized world. Yet we have to discuss it together. The Full Moon in Libra, Libra people, and Libra transits are here to help us understand where we’ve been too polarized because we’re overwhelmed with the complexity of: me and we, novelty and predictability, tradition and innovation, safety and adventure, love and desire.
I heard Esther Perel say in a keynote she gave in her 2021 Sessions Live “The Great Adaption”, that,”...when you polarize, each person doesn’t have to deal with the complexity because each one lets the other deal with the part that they themselves don’t want to deal with.” The Full Moon in Libra wants us to hold the complexity of me and we. It wants us to leverage central differences like a paradox that needs to be managed not a problem that needs to be solved. It wants us to find the thinking, strategy, and choices we’ve made that are either/or and binary in their approach. To instead include “the other” that we’ve polarized out of our lives.
This Full Moon in Libra has nuanced aspects that ought to be considered. Most notably its square to Pluto in Capricorn. Any transit to Pluto is sure to bring some awareness to our attentions that might be emotionally activating and/or anxiety inducing. This is normal. Ask yourself around the experience, “1) What do I know for sure? 2) What more do I need to know about the situation? 3) Who do I need to talk to to get the information I need and 4) What am I learning about myself in this process?” (Brene Brown’s Rising Strong Process). Especially around a polarity concern, this square to Pluto might help us understand where we’ve become too polarized, inflexible, and rigid in our thinking and behavior.
Study after research after evidence-based analysis all teach us that the quality of our relationships determines the quality of our life. And we’re all responsible for understanding who we are, what we bring, and what we want to give and receive in our relationships. This Full Moon in Libra helps us hold the axis of our life’s determiner. Let us be intentional, resilient, and committed to managing this paradox like our life depends on it.
