Full Moon - Keywords for the Full phase are: fulfillment, illumination, realization, and experience. It is the time in a lunar cycle that you are given a clear view so that you can make adjustments to put your back on track to manifesting the goals you set at the new phase. Go to a public place. Do something with a friend. LISTEN. Receive awareness. Understand others. She  opens and blossoms during the Full Moon into the FLOWER, with the desire to share her beauty with others.  Those who are born during the full enjoy companionship and partnership and desire to merge deeply. Fulfillment and illumination are their goals. The full moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. Astrologically, the Sun and Moon are in opposition (i.e. opposite each other in the sky and in opposite signs of the zodiac). She is visible from moonrise to moonset.

Moon in Aries - the moon in this transit asks us to wake up and remember who we truly are, even if it bothers those we love and work for. Tempers, tears and passions run hot. Remember that using the garden as metaphor for any projects you want to nourish - this is a great time for digging beds (laying out the groundwork), moving boulders (moving things that are in way of your work on your goals), weeding or pest removal (getting rid of those things that are holding you back on your projects), but put a hold on planting (don't be impulsive). Those who are born in the sign of Aries search for fire, fierce independence and their own voice. They may need to learn patience and cooperation. They can appreciate our fire.  The Moon in Aries is a time of new beginnings, intense activity, pioneering in any field, reaching out with emotional surges, impulsiveness. This moon is the great tester of limits. When the moon is in Aries, you may want to depend on yourself, as there is also a certain amount of ego involvement. You might feel impatient now or want to initiate new things.
   Aries Moon is based on impulsiveness and acting on feelings of the moment, rather than the result of reason. Sometimes snap decisions are made - later to be regretted.

Sun in Libra

   Libra is an Air sign, relating to the world of thought, ideas, communication and humanity. It is also a Cardinal sign bringing eagerness, initiative, action and impatience.
   Librans are generally self-expressive, communicative, mentally alert and extrovert. They tend to be charming, easy-going, diplomatic and compromising. They are happiest in harmonious company, preferring to conform and to avoid conflict and dissension. Librans are typified by the scales; they like to weigh things in the balance. They are intelligent and capable of seeing all sides of an issue, however, this can lead to indecisiveness, and sometimes to misunderstandings through doing what they think others expect. Librans enjoy bringing people together and often have a strong artistic or creative streak. They are acutely perceptive about those they love and are often forgiving of faults, whether, real or perceived. They tend to bottle up their feelings for fear of 'upsetting the balance.'  On the negative side they can lack self-confidence, be fault-finding, indecisive, frivolous and shallow.
   While the Sun is n their sign, Librans should be particularly wary of their tendency to compare both themselves and others to some kind of ideal, as this is bound to lead to disappointment. It is a good time for them to express themselves artistically. Those of other signs  will also find this is a good time for artistic endeavors, social activities and for considering decisions which involve many positive and negative components.
