The Full Pink Moon in Libra - Balance and Love
On April 19th, 2019 we have a Full Moon in Libra. This is the 2nd Full Moon in Libra and it happens at 29°, the last degree. This moon is referred to as the Pink Moon. Spiritually, the Pink Moon always signifies rebirth and renewal. After a long, cold, gray, and miserable winter, the resurgence of the color pink is a revitalizing dose of beauty and joy. It serves as a reminder that life is a set of ups and downs, a cycle of hibernation and reawakening. The flowers may go away for a while but they always return, more beautiful than they've ever been before. Their color is appreciated in a new light, since we've all gone so long without embracing their impact on our world.
The first Full Moon in Libra happened on March 21st at 0° Libra. What happened back then? These two full moons are connected. So whatever happened in your life at the time of the first Full Moon in will reach a culmination now, think back to what was happening a month ago?
The theme of this Moon is, all We Need Is Love
Libra is the sign of relationships. Have you ever wondered why is that? Is it maybe because Libra is balanced and peace-loving? Or is it something else?
If you look at the zodiac wheel, you’ll notice that Libra is the 7th sign of the zodiac, exactly opposite the 1st sign of the zodiac, Aries. And Aries is the sign of the individual, the “I am”. The opposite of “I am” is “The Other”.
Libra is not only about our ability to notice how others are different, but also shows us how we can understand ourselves better, through others.
Her symbol is the scales and Libra shows us and what we project onto other people, so we can understand ourselves better. Let’s say you’re a great artist, but you are not aware of it. You will be attracted to artists because unconsciously you are looking for people who can help you get in touch with this talent you already have.
We are often attracted to, or attract, people who have these traits that we don’t acknowledge in ourselves. That’s projection. So Libra is also about learning about ourselves, through others.
Venus, the ruler of the Full Moon is in the last degree of the zodiac in Pisces, ready to close a chapter in your life.
The Full Moon is also opposite Uranus, the planet of freedom and liberation. Uranus is conjunct the Sun, helping us to break free from the prison of the Ego.
The Sabian symbol of the Full Moon in Libra is “Three mounds of knowledge on a philosopher's head”. The symbol implies the fulfillment of philosophical understanding. The puzzle comes together.
This Full Moon can help you understand something profound about yourself and others. You may finally understand why you are attracted to the same people over and over again. Once you have this breakthrough, you can finally appreciate people for who they are - not as a reflection of you, but as individuals on their own. And when you release them from judgment, you allow them to enter your life. And life’s just better when we share it with others.
What you’ll need:
3. Pink or white candle
4. Sage or clearing tools
5. Pink sea salt
6. A rose quarts or any love crystal
Clear your space with your clearing tools
Light your candles and begin to meditate sitting up, just focus on the breath and allow the mind ti clear.
Take out your paper and write:
Before I release __________ I think about the good times. This one moment in particular stands out to me the most __________
I give thanks to this time.”
“The time has come for me to release ________ as the time has come to move on. The time has come to let this part of my life go because ____________.”
“_____________ has taught me a lot, including ________ and I am grateful for this experience and lesson.”
“Thank you ______for showing me the way. Thank you for opening my eyes to what needs to change. Thank you for being a teacher, but I am ready to move on and leave this behind.”
5.) Now, take the piece of paper and hold it against your belly button. Close your eyes and visualize a cord coming from your belly button to this other person or idea/belief. See the cord clearly in your minds-eye. Now, imagine cutting the cord. As you do this, keep saying: “thank you, thank you, thank you”.
6.) With your eyes still closed, look at this person or idea/belief standing in front of you and in your mind, begin sharing with them all you would like to say before you make your final goodbye. Just say whatever it is that you want to say and get it all out. You can do this in your mind or say it out loud.
7.) Once you have said all that you wish, turn around and begin walking away. As you do, see the cord still attached to your belly button fall away. Open your eyes and take a deep breath in and out.
8.) Now, take your piece of paper and begin ripping cutting it up as you do, recite the following or feel free to say whatever you feel in the moment-
“Under the light of the Moon, these cords have now been cut. I ask for a healing to take place. I ask for forgiveness. I ask for peace. May these cords remain removed as long as it is in my best and highest interest. Help me to be clear of these cords, help me to find the freedom, love, and peace I am looking for. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
9.) As a final step, you can take your pieces of paper and bury them outside under the light of the Moon or, feel burn the papers (if safe to do so) with your candles — or you can throw them in the recycling.
10.) Before closing the ritual, cleanse your aura and surroundings one last time. As you do, keep chanting the following with your crystals in your hand close to your heart.
“I am cleansed. I am free. I have released all cords that no longer serve me. I am light. I am love. I feel joy moving through me, life moving through me. I am whole. I am One.”
