Aries and Libra.  Mars and Venus.

Spring and Fall.  Planting and reaping.

Light and Darkness.  Life and Death.

Self and Other.


All the oppositions we find in life are symbolized by the interplay between these two energies.  Oppositions create energy.   The question always is: what will we do with it?  Choose wisely this year. 


This Libra Full Moon comes while the Sun is in Aries – Mars the warrior god and Venus, Goddess of Beauty, Sexuality and Love rule these two signs.  


Sun in Aries like Mars’ energy is aggressive and playful, inquisitive and impetuous.  But there’s also assertive leadership and courage under the bad boy image.  The Moon reflects Venus in Libra, and can be seductive, social, intelligent and talented.  Just as the Sun and Moon are often mythically paired as lovers, so are Venus and Mars.  Venus is the one who tames the wild warrior spirit, the one who can take the war out of the warrior.  Mars gives Venus strength and courage and a renewed sense of herself.  When combined, the power of love can’t be beat.


When we use Venus’ ability to connect to Mars in a loving and enchanting way, we can bring out his best qualities. He will protect and defend the land and those people he loves.  It’s not false patriotism, fueled by hatred or rhetoric. It’s will and desire at the service of life.   It’s Aragon and Arthur.  It’s Cleopatra and Eleanor of Aquitaine.


The Full Moon is supported by the Aquarian planets we’ve been discussing for the past year (http://www.wisdom-of-astrology.com/astrostarsarticles), adding their vision of unity and cooperation to the balance between self and other.  Ideals need to come back into vogue.
