Let Go With the Libra Full Moon

Posted on April 08, 2020

We just experienced a Full Moon in Libra a few days ago, and the energy remains strong for another 1 - 2 weeks. We’re out of some heavy astrological energy right now, so it’s a good time to focus on letting go, especially when it comes to relationship baggage and issues - Libra’s specialty!

What is a Full Moon?

A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon directly oppose one another in the sky, and therefore, they oppose in the zodiac signs as well.

The Sun rules your true self while the Moon rules your emotions, so Full Moons bring out some intense emotional energy. You can feel challenged in some way to make changes, to take action, to reconcile, and to move on.

Impact of a Libra Full Moon

Libra is the sign of relationships, governing the people in our lives, and with a Full Moon in Libra, you can focus on bringing to an end relationship issues and baggage so you can let go. This may mean walking away in some cases; in others, it may mean just letting go of something that has been a problem in the relationship so you can function better together.

Libra also rules peace and balance, so letting go of issues can help to restore peace in your life and make you feel more balanced. The more balanced you are, the better you can feel. This can be important in any area of life, but especially in your relationships.

Libra Full Moons tend to be less wild and intense since Libra is an Air sign, and Air signs are intellectual in nature. This can provide some helpful energy for expressing and processing emotions in a more objective way.

Libra Full Moon Ritual

Try a ritual for letting go of anger you have toward someone, an issue in a relationship that’s creating problems, or attachment to someone that hasn’t been good for you. Take some time alone in a quiet area to clear you mentally and spiritually. Imagine a peaceful scene and the issue evaporating into the air.

If you feel called to do so, light candles (white or black is good for letting go), burn some incense or sage or hold a crystal (clear quartz can be helpful for storing anything you don’t want anymore). Give yourself a Tarot reading if you’d like some guidance, or ask your guides for inspired help on what choices and actions to take.

If you want to do something more literally symbolic of letting go, write down whatever it is you want to let go of, burn the piece of paper (safely of course!), and bury the ashes outside or flush them down the toilet.

These are just suggestions, and it can be even better to craft your own ritual yourself. Make sure to read this article for how to do just that!
