Full Moons bring an awful lot of powerful, charged energy our way.

Your Checklist for the Full Moon in Libra
• Full Moons are about endings
The light of the Moon sheds light on the most important areas of your life. With this Full Moon in Libra, relationships and partnerships are going to take front and center. This does not always mean endings in relationships, though for some, there will be breakups.
This instead means ending a way of doing things. So many relationships will see old habits dying hard, and even elevations to the next level. A lot of engagements, marriages, and live in relationships will start during this period. Any changes you make to your relationships right now have the potential to be epic, and life-altering under a Full Moon.
• Full Moons are revealing
Here’s where your intuition really gets a boost! If you’re paying attention, you will be given information to shed light on things that have been vexing you since the New Moon in Pisces earlier this month. The beginnings that you started there will have information and clarity come to them to breathe renewal into any area of your life. Emotional needs and wants from those near to you will be more clear, and so will your own. What just isn’t working for you? Have you been avoiding dealing with toxic behavior in a friendship, with a family member or a lover? Now is the time to face what’s going on and make the tough choices that will help you move forward in a positive way.
Libra is associated with the Tarot card of Justice - a card that is about doing the right thing. The Full Moon is a great time to consider what that means for you.
• Full Moons are excellent for cleansing
This is an excellent time for self-reflection. While New Moons are about setting intentions, Full Moons beg you to re-evaluate your status. How far along are you in the goals you set in the March 6th New Moon in Pisces? If you haven’t been working on them, what’s holding you back?
This could also indicate a time to further communication with someone very dear to you. Going deeply into your connection can be hard, but this could also mark a breakthrough in your partnership if you can keep your best interests in mind and play fair.
