The thing about full moons is that since they’re the brightest point of the lunar cycle, they also illuminate all that was comfortably hidden in the dark.
The Libra full moon will be illuminating your relationships and how your energy is dispersed. Are you spending enough time on yourself and your needs? Are you enabling the neediness of your partner too much? Are you getting lost in your partner? Is there a power struggle?
Full moons are a time of release – a deep exhale.

Solar eclipses are a time to make external changes. And this new moon solar eclipse in Taurus is going to bring changes to how you grow what you love and desire.
Your external life is a source of great pleasure and joy. This lunation is asking you to switch it up and get really clear on how you show up for what lights you up.
Spending more time making your soul shine is exactly what is going to help you magnetize your desires!
Focus less on the how and more on the why. Being magnetic AF is a dance with surrender and desire.

This is your opportunity to listen and soothe, not judge and dismiss. Pluto’s purpose is to bring darkness to light.
Additionally, the United States is experiencing a Pluto return. Pluto is a slow moving outer planet and takes around 246 years to orbit completely around the sun. When the US was colonized and the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, the country was officially “birthed” as the United States of America.
Pluto has returned to the same place in the sky that it was on that fateful day.
Humans won’t experience a Pluto return, but countries absolutely do! The empire of Rome fell during its Pluto return. Currently, there is great change and transformation is happening for the US. This isn’t a doomsday energy, but one of change and illumination.
A lot is being brought to the surface and the US is in the midst of massive upheaval and transformation, which I think we can all agree is true.
April 2022 Astrology Round Up
The overall theme of this cosmic story is that it’s time to play, take action, restore balance in your relationships, create magic, and let your inner child play.
You’re always going to experience waves in the ocean of life, but it’s learning to either surrender or jump on and ride that self-mastery is experienced.
You are the master of your universe! Astrology is simply one lens to look through for better understanding. Never forget, however, that through all the retrogrades and lunar cycles, you are always in control of your own life!
