The New & Full Moon Forecast: Full Moon in April 2016

Full Moon in April 2016

This month the Full Moon in Scorpio is conjunct the asteroid Juno, associated with the Roman Goddess of marriage and childbirth. She was one of the most important deities, wife of Jupiter, and highly regarded for her values and commitment as wife and overseer of finances. When prominent or associated with other planets in an astrological chart, Juno identifies marriage, sexuality, commitment and the significant role relationship plays in everyday life.

Full Moon in Scorpio
Odyssey of Love

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
~ Thomas Merton

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
~ Carl Jung

The Full Moon on April 21st, 2016 occurring at 10:24 PM Pacific Time at 3 degrees of Scorpio is ruled by both Mars and Pluto. Themes of sexuality, transformation, radical power and relationship are huge factors for the coming month. (Remember, each month the Full Moon illumines a pathway of opportunity that is determined by alignment aspects to the moon and sun in the Full Moon astrological chart.)

This month the Full Moon in Scorpio is conjunct the asteroid Juno, associated with the Roman Goddess of marriage and childbirth. She was one of the most important deities, wife of Jupiter, and highly regarded for her values and commitment as wife and overseer of finances. When prominent or associated with other planets in an astrological chart, Juno identifies marriage, sexuality, commitment and the significant role relationship plays in everyday life.

These themes are profoundly important as we move into the month of May. The moon’s aspect to Juno suggests that we seek an illumined understanding of the emotional and sensitive undercurrents of relationship habits, values and needs. How are we behaving? How do these behaviors reflect the way we seek nurturance, offer and receive love and express our sexuality? Moon conjunct Juno lends light to the deep-seated issues that have housed themselves in the basement of our psyche. What lurks? Do you dare take a peek? You must.

The moon’s opposition to the sun in a Full Moon chart emphasizes the yin/yang, male/female dance of the inner world. In this month’s Full Moon chart, with Moon conjunct Juno, we also have Sun opposite the Juno/Moon conjunction. Not only are we to examine and connect with the emotional/fertile ground of sexuality, union and needs, we will learn to interact harmoniously without projections and overblown ego demands. In a sense, one may ponder the way of skillful cooperation, commitment, integrity; three resources so very important to Juno.

Mars, co-ruler of Scorpio, rules the Venus/Uranus conjunction in Aries in the full moon chart One must not overlook this radical juxtaposition to the Moon/Juno aspect. Emotions are keen, feelings run deep and questions regarding commitment and value seek clarity. However, pioneering Aries energizes freedom, independence, new experiences and eccentric values. How on earth do we balance these two opposing forces? Juno/Moon suggests we buckle up and strap ourselves in for a safe a ride on the roller coaster of relationship while Venus (ruler of love and romance) is pulled out of Her comfort zone by forever freedom-loving Uranus.

Clearly there is opportunity for all sorts of magic. Our greatest ally rests within our conscience. To express deep and healthy needs within relationship, it is wise to seek intimate union with the Self, the true Mother of our Soul. The Self, our highest point of identification with destiny, may then engage the interplay of intimate union with another in fullness, freedom and commitment.

Are you ready for the dance?

Do not hesitate to explore the entire gamut of this sweet, tender, sexual, independent, courageous and self-loving journey. Belts and buckles intact, you just might fly into a new dream.
