April’s Libra Full Moon Shifts Relationships

It’s all love on April 6, as the Libra full moon unlocks the source code for happy, healthy and balanced relationships.

Bring on peace, love and harmony! The Libra full moon on Thursday, April 6 (at 12:34 AM ET) could be one of the most exhilarating bonding moments of 2023. The annual Libra full moon inspires compromise over competition, love over bitterness and sharing over self-interest. And couldn’t we all use more of that?

What the Libra full moon means for your love life

Full moons are heart-openers, no question about it. And since April’s full moon is the Pink Moon, expect to be tickled this very shade by sweet gestures. And feel free to wear those rose-colored glasses, too!

The two weeks that follow the April 6, 2023, Libra full moon are peak manifesting time. As the annual Libra full moon opens hearts and mind, expect clarity about a relationship’s potential. Connections that have been percolating for the past six months could reach a defining moment.

Couples may be ready to talk commitment, cohabitation, or anything involving a ceremony!

Singles who want to dive back into the dating pool can put on their “water wings” and make a splash!

But heads up for everyone! Because the Libra full moon opposes both healing Chiron and candid Jupiter, emotional floodgates could open more than planned. Watch what flies out of your mouth, whether it’s an out-of-left-field proclamation of love or an unnecessarily harsh read of someone’s mistakes.

How the Libra full moons affect us all—and how to make it work for you!

1. Define your relationships

On the subject of your love life—or any sort of partnership from creative to business—here’s a question for you: Are you in or are you out? Libra marks the halfway point around the zodiac wheel, the turning point where the astrological energy shifts from “me” to “we.” Near the Libra full moon, you may feel dissatisfied by relationships that aren’t reflecting your values, whether they’re dating situations to professional collaborations.

Start hashing it out: Can you align on the things that are most important to you? Or are your outlooks just too different? If you’re paired up on a project, what is each person’s respective role? How will you share the profits and glory? You might need to analyze and reconfigure plans after taking a full-picture inventory. Remember, splitting everything 50/50 isn’t the only recipe for playing fair. In fact, trying to force that might be part of the breakdown. So, how can you divide up responsibilities to play to each person’s needs and strengths?

Fortunately, Libra is the zodiac’s diplomat, and this full moon will lend a hand in keeping negotiations peaceful. What would the ideal win-win look like to each of you? Talk through different scenarios. Then, put it in writing!

2. Attract your opposite

Still searching for your “missing puzzle piece?” While common ground is a beautiful bonding agent, beam your searchlight a little further near the April 6 full moon.

Libra, the great balancer, knows that opposites attract. Complementary skill sets can make for a total dream team, even if your head-scratching matchup makes little sense on paper. In truth, unlikely pairings can be the greatest win-win combinations. If you’re stuck in a rut, don’t autopilot into dialing a BFF or your “work wife” for an assist.

Step outside of your comfort zone instead! It may be far more productive (not to mention inspiring) to reach out to someone new—especially if they’ve conquered the very dragon you’re trying to slay. Artistes, team up with the engineers; mathematicians, seek someone who understands the metaphysical realm. Your powerful pairing could deliver the best of both worlds!

3. Wear your heart—and your art—on your sleeve

Luxe-loving Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, fashion and the arts. Image may not be everything, but Libra knows the powerful impact great style can have. Let the Libra full moon teach you how to speak a strong visual language.

Have you always wanted to dye your hair a fun color, try extensions or a pixie-bob? Or maybe get a tiny tattoo on your ankle (or a full-on sleeve of your favorite tarot card on your forearm). Play with apps that let you virtually make over your hairstyle. Start following tattoo and makeup artists on Instagram for inspiration and make an appointment when you feel that intuitive click.

Feeling totally lost in the face of fashion’s kaleidoscopic options? Or maybe you’re constantly riding the roller coaster of trends—or avoiding them and sticking to boring basics. It might be worth it to consult a professional stylist who can help you identify a signature look. Most sessions start with shopping in your own closet. You can find what foundational pieces you already have, and which might be missing, like a great denim jacket, or knowing what style of denim flatters your body type. The consultation fee will pay for itself when you’ve determined what future shopping faux pas to avoid (badly placed ruffles, ankle straps) and how to mix and match the staples with the statement pieces.

4. Practice peaceful communication

What’s the difference between hotheaded screaming and productive conflict resolution? We believe it’s the intention behind your “fight.”

If both parties, in their hearts, truly want to reach a win-win solution, then all the fighting words will come out in the wash. But if you’re digging in your heels just to win a power struggle, there will be no peace. As Libra Gandhi said, “Honest disagreement is often a good sign of progress.” You can still respect the other person’s right to their principles, even if you disagree with them.

If you find yourself locking horns with loved ones regularly, the Libra full moon is the time to learn the fine art of anger management. Learning to disagree without disrespecting the other party is a lost art form in this age of cancel culture. But sometimes, even the most diplomatic, and well-crafted reaction only opens Pandora’s box and further enflames the conflict. Rise above a power struggle and search for common ground. That may be the path to peace during this full moon.

Take a cue from late Libra Marshall Rosenberg, who left behind a legacy of conflict-resolution called Non-Violent Communication (NVC). Rather than react to a so-called enemy’s angry words, NVC teaches how to listen with empathy and seek to understand emotion behind the rant. By approaching heated conversations with curiosity and compassion, bridges can be built (instead of burned).

5. Join a Justice League

The scales of justice are the Libra motif. The Libra full moon shines a bright beam on bias, discrimination, or anything that’s just plain unfair.

Speak out and contribute to a social cause. Would you like to see your work culture be more inclusive? Are animals being mistreated in your area? Channel the Libra energy of the “peaceful warrior” and do something to help right the wrong.

Whether you’re donating time or money doesn’t matter. A social media campaign can raise awareness and inspire others who do have means to put some funds behind an important initiative.

Is someone being overlooked in your neighborhood, school, or within your family? How can you support people who don’t have access to certain resources or privileges? With equity-based Libra energy in the air, you could be inspired to find ways to build equity in your community.

6. Bring balance back to your life

Libra is represented by the symbol of the Scales, and during this full moon, we’ll have a lot to weigh out. The overriding theme of this inquiry my circulate around a question of “Is it serving my highest good?” At the Libra full moon, check your habits, your home, your diet. Where has balance gone awry?

Clean up your diet

Have you been going too heavy on the stimulants like caffeine or burning it up with spicy foods? Learn about the pH scale of acid versus alkaline foods. Try to add a few more alkalizing options listed on this acid-alkaline food chart. You don’t have to go to extremes, like Libra Gwyneth Paltrow, who was recently dubbed an “almond mom” for her restrictive (and downright scary!) diet. Simply making your mantra, “all things in moderation” can already bring a seismic shift.

Support your body at work

Many of us function on stress and adrenaline at our jobs. Where can you be more awake, conscious and calm around your finances and work? Libra also rules the lower back. If you need more spinal support (and many of us do), look into standing desk options, or just make your own.

Balance at home

Has your once-calm oasis turned into a noisy, cluttered hub? Tear a page from organizational savant (and surprise, surprise, Libra) Marie Kondo’s tidying bible and bring some serenity back to your sanctuary. By now, it’s a ubiquitous notion to release things that no longer “spark joy.” Whether you want to do a full-on minimalist purge or just tackle one communal area, let the Libra full moon get your clean-up mission in motion. And a reminder to be gentle with yourself in the process; even Kondo has recently admitted her home is less organized than she has been known to preach since becoming a parent!

Oh, and don’t forget the aesthetic element! Yes, even when it comes to organizing closets and drawers. Beyond decluttering, our Home Reset course will help you realign your home for maximum manifestation! Learn how to pull in prosperity through your kitchen and entryway. Learn how best to set up your bedroom for relationships and peaceful slumber. You can even change the vibe of your home via address numerology. We teach you all of that in this course.
