Full moon in Libra: refresh and heal relationships
On 28 March the Full Moon rises at 8 degrees of Libra, just as Venus conjoins Chiron and Mars conjoins the North Node. The Sun conjoins Chiron the next day on 29 March and on 30 March Mercury conjoins Neptune.
This period suggests inspired thinking, empathy, compassion, healing and commitment in relationships, especially as Venus sextiles Saturn on 30 March, with the Sun following close behind to sextile Saturn on 31 March.
The Moon in Libra, our emotional nature, begs for everyone to get along! With the Sun in independent, self-orientated Aries and the Moon in cooperative, relational Libra, this full moon highlights the compromises that must be made between our own needs and those of others in order to live happily and productively.
However a little self assertion may not be a bad thing. This full moon in Libra is an opportunity to bring into the light any resentment or unspoken hurt that has been undermining our primary relationships. It is a chance to start over and to find the balance between our personal needs and the needs of others.
So what does this full moon in Libra mean for you?
For many this full moon in Libra will have little impact. But if you have planets or points between 5 to 11 degrees of any sign you may find it packs more of a punch. This will be particularly likely where the planets in question are in cardinal signs, that is Capricorn, Aries, Libra or Cancer.
If you’re one of those who will be strongly affected by the full moon in Libra you should also take a look at your chart to see which house the moon will fall. You will probably find it’s in this area of your life that you will experience most of an impact.

I’ve been feeling this all week; Sun and Moon in Libra at 10 and 17 degrees with a Scorpio ascendent, apart from some very, very odd dreams, lots of thoughts and emotions are coming to the surface and I’m seeing people in different and often not flattering lights.
Interesting! I have Venus at 15 degrees Capricorn and I seem to be coming to the climax of a very long period of waiting and stuckness. On the day of the eclipse I’ll be meeting someone with whom my relationship is difficult to say the least! Much hinges on the outcome…
Natal moon in Libra at 13 degrees – in the 8th house!
Natal moon square natal mars in 11th.
Transit pluto in 12th house
Transit uranus in 1st house.
I’m not afraid of the dark…. Much.
Thanks for sharing Anette. Big shifts eh? But so worth it when we look back in a few months time and see how far we’ve come…
So far I’ve felt like there has been a heavy weight on the soul these past days. Very introspective!
Warned my BF that there was an astrological storm under way so that he shouldn’t think too much about it if I was very into myself these days.
There’s a great need for freedom these days too (guess it must be the P/U square in 1st and 12th house…) – like I want to find my own apartment, even if I love my BF and couldn’t think of leaving him. I quite literally do not understand my own brain sometimes!
Maybe I’m just an adrenaline junkie, and when things get too stale, I’m jumping like firecrackers or something like that. Intimacy is a biggie with saturn and pluto in 8th house too.
Moon will pass my sun-moon midpoint and continue further in the 8th, past my scorpio sun, mercury, jupiter, venus and venus the next days. So I’m in for a ride!
It’s incredible how differently these transits affect each one of us because of the varied configurations of our charts. I have Venus at 15 Capricorn and my husband has Mars at 15 Libra and his north node at 15 Cancer. We had a hellova weekend! Not conflict between us, more challenges we had to face together. Enjoying some chill out time now… phew!
Two and a half years ago I do recall some very intense things happening around eclipses in November – possibly they were in Scorpio or were somehow related to Saturn which had just gone into Scorpio. For me this was the start of coming to terms with a whole lot of scary stuff, which I have hopefully dealt with internally so as not to need it to manifest! This eclipse, for me relates to my Aries midheaven at 13 degrees – and will mark the finale of the last couple of years of Uranus Pluto square affecting that area of my life. I hope for good things from all the upheaval. I am already feeling more confident, having processed a lot of the tumultuous transformative energy of this time. I have lots of ideas, but for now it’s still best to wait and see how things settle in!
Lovely post – as always
I feel similarly optimistic, as though a lot of things are releasing… Thanks for the compliment. It means a lot :)
