FULL MOON is aproaching, can you feel it? This FULL MOON is in LIBRA,
but we still are dealing with a bunch of planets in Aries, yes that explains it!
Here are some wonderful insights from some of my favorite astrologers.
First, from the always right-on-point, Dipali Desai:
“From my perspective, the Full Moon in Libra  brings our attention to conflict resolution and feeling the emotions underneath the conflict(s) arising now. We may feel at war with ourselves, something or someone, or all of the above. What is the war or conflict really about? Your needs being met? Unresolved tension? Unfair actions? We must seek to find peaceful outcome that honors all parties involved in some way. One key is: Self-responsibility or in other words your part in the dynamic happening within the relationship. What can you do to change co-dependency into empowerment for yourself first? Transiting Mars in Aries and Mercury in Aries (retrograde) both oppose Saturn in Libra (retrograde) during the Full Moon in Libra, very sobering influence indeed. Keep editing your words, make sure you don’t attack the other party. Use your wisdom and say what needs to be said with maturity and compassion. Transiting Pluto in Capricorn with Mercury in Aries both in retrograde phase may stir up old issues.
We must get to the task at hand = “I” & “WE” in Relationships. Through relating with others we gain tremendous insight into ourselves and how we really feel or what’s going on inside. It is serious and we may even feel highly mentally frustrated (Mercury Retrograde in Aries) with wanting to run wild and free and claim our individuality (Mars in Aries) but we have the symbolic safety or fear brakes on (Saturn in Libra retrograde) keeping us in check often. But do not fret, things are moving perhaps even at a snail’s speed indeed. Patience will help otherwise you will over exert yourself and dish out too much energy. Dwell not so much on endings as something changing… morphing into something else, and remember to often look at the bigger picture (transiting Venus in Pisces) to help keep perspective with whatever is going on. Soon… we will feel the shimmer of birthing, and energy moving swiftly. But for now allow the tears and sadness to cascade down into a lake if need be. Giggles and laughter are playing peek-a-boo around the corner.”

And from  Julia Bondi:
“I am you, you are me, we are one together…words from the 1960’s that inspired a revolutionary generation are today’s message from a world in revolt. The Beatles tune is now a familiar soundtrack in our world, yet the combination of Uranus and Pluto that dominated the 60’s worldwide revolutions in politics, music, culture, and consciousness is singing the same song today. Uranus and Pluto are again in dynamic relationship to one another through their square in Aries/Capricorn, with Saturn in Libra joining them in the streets in 2011…
This Libra Moon inspires us to see the others in our world, to care for them, to listen to them, to join with them to find common ground. These nice Libran words and concepts are not new; they are now imperative if we all want to live together in harmony on an ever smaller, hotter, more crowded planet. The great religious sages have lived and preached love; however, it is only the Aries “I” who can co-create a loving world.
We are living in a period of intense challenges and immense opportunity. Only our human potential fully developed, lived and shared can transform our current challenges into the opportunity to live in a world that respects individuals while caring for the whole — the world of me and all those who are not me.
Every ideal we human beings hold as desirable and sacred is contained in the Libran message of love. Love begets compassion, beauty, justice, and mercy through the recognition of connectedness. We have been told by all great teachers that what we do for the least of our brothers and sisters, we do for God, the divine. This is the caring, Libran path to authentic, Aries selfhood and independence. “
