See my first Full Moon post here
for information about the creation of the monthly blends and the definition of a Full Moon.
This month's Full Moon occurs on Tuesday, April 7th at 10:35 pm (EDT) at approximately 18º of the sign of Libra, opposite the Sun in Aries. By combining the signature essential oils of Libra and Aries, a sense of harmony between the opposite signs can be created, easing any tension felt before, during or after the moon is full. I chose Bergamot for its emotionally uplifting and tension relieving properties, as the Full Moon energy will amplify our feelings and emotions during this time. Geranium is also emotionally uplifting and stabilizing. I hope this blend instills a sense of peace and balance with its energetic attunement to the sign of Libra, which exudes peace, balance and harmony.
Fun fact! Did you know that Geranium oil is distilled from the leaves of the plant, not the flowers?
The blend is listed below and a PDF copy can be downloaded here.
Full Moon in Libra Diffuser Blend
3 drops Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis ct. camphor) (Aries)
4 drops Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens var roscum) (Libra)
3 drops Bergamot (Citrus bergamia)
Add the oils to your favorite diffuser and breathe deeply. Diffusing this blend a few days before, during and a few days after the full moon is good timing to take advantage of the soothing effects.
Tensions are already running high right now, and Full Moons amplify our feelings, emotions and experiences. The Sun in Aries is strong and under the rulership of Mars. The Moon in Libra is gentle under the rulership of Venus. This may be good time to find your inner Peace Warrior. This is a very good time to express your emotions. Don't hold anything back. Libra energy tends toward people pleasing and keeping the peace at the expense of oneself. One of the best ways to find our inner Peace Warrior is to sit with, honor and express our emotions so we can move the energy out of the body.
What can you do to emote?
Remember, emotion is energy in motion.
Do what works best for you!
What can you release or surrender to feel a better sense of inner balance and calm?
What healing of your identity did you begin when the Moon was new (3/24) that has helped you feel more connected to your true inner self?
Release what hasn't served you.
Offer it up the Moon with grace and gratitude under the watchful gaze of Venus.
My lovely friend Abra of Shift Studio in Ventnor, NJ just went on FB Live yesterday evening (synchronicity!) and gifted us with a meditation and practices to release energy.

One practice that may be helpful and calming is to connect with the planets in the sky. Mars is visible in the early morning sky before sunrise. Venus is visible in the evening sky just after sunset. The Moon will be big and beautiful on the night of the Full Moon. There are mobile apps like Sky View and Sky Guide that can help you find the planets. Time and Date is a useful resource as well.
Finding the Aries/Libra axis in your chart can also be helpful in specifying themes.
If you need help with that, I'd be honored to be of service.
I'm co-hosting an online Full Moon Goddess gathering for this Full Moon. My friend Julie and I will be calling in the energy of Venus, and Julie will be guiding us through some gentle chair yoga poses. Join us! The event is on Tuesday, 4/7 at 6:45 pm (EDT) and is donation-based.

Full Moon blessings and love!
