On Wednesday, March 20th we have a lot going on. Let’s start with the first day of spring! The sun enters Aries which signals the vernal equinox. Oh yeah. It’s exciting! Spring has sprung!
Shortly after the sun enters the new sign of Aries we have a full moon in Libra that is incredibly powerful. Further adding to the tension of this full moon is that the sun is conjunct Chiron, the wounded healer. Let me describe it this way: The sun, your will, your motivation, is compromised by a wound that seems unable to be healed completely. Instead the vulnerability must be accepted and built upon in order to turn that weakness into a source of strength so that you, in turn, are able to help others rise out of the pain they carry with them everyday. But during the full moon we are especially sensitive to our own unique pain, making it a challenge to embody the healer instead of being the wounded one in this scenario. It takes all of Aries bravery, courage and ability to take risks to fight through this existential battle. And Aries is much more comfortable on an actual battlefield that in the existential realm. But look at it as an adventure, to be all you can be, in order to create wholeness where there was once separation.
We are all vulnerable in our own special ways (Chiron). We all look to others to see if we can find acceptance (Libra). But in the end it’s up to us ourselves, each and every one of us, to find acceptance for ourselves within our own hearts (Aries). Bravely be who you are, whoever that is. You are not defined by what other people say about you. You are not defined by your pain. You get to decide what defines you. And the full moon in Libra can remind you to show up for this world as yourself. If you truly accept who you are then others, your partners in this life, will be meet you where you are. And being face to face with someone, openly and honestly, is what partnership is all about.
Allow this full moon in Libra to help you realize that when you are open and vulnerable to others it helps to create a stronger partnership. Use your presence in a relationship to bring out your own inner wisdom. But don’t look for your partner to be the source of your healing. We all have to do the healing part of it for ourselves. Our partners can bear witness and bring loving support, but at the end of the day it’s up to us to do the healing work in each of our own lives.
