"Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes--simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That is its balance."
Libra is the sign of balance. As we are searching for ways to adapt to our "new normal," we will be digging deep down inside ourselves. We are craving a harmony that perhaps we once knew, but never completely lost. All that we are doing is reaching inside to re-master what we once knew. We are remembering. We are tuning into what our Spirit already knows.
You might realizing that this time of turning inward actually leads to your own e x p a n s i o n. Perhaps you're feeling creative. Maybe you're feeling like you want to cleanse your space by tidying up or doing some spring cleaning. Maybe you're working from home, and that's a struggle for you. Maybe you've lost your job. Maybe you need time to just rest, and do nothing.
It's important for us to know that everything that your body and intuition are telling you right now, are real. When your body is telling you it needs rest more, needs to go for a walk outside, needs to meditate, needs to stretch, needs to express itself creatively, listen to it. There is no correct way to live right now, but definitely ensure that you are taking care of what YOU need! Through listening to what you need, you are expanding.
This time of harmony that you are craving will bring to attention the areas of your life that may be lacking in some departments. Some of us pour all of our energy into maybe one or two aspects of our lives, and neglect the others a bit more. We can use this time to take a look at what areas that the full moon is illuminating...the areas of our lives that need more loving energy. Along with discovering areas that need more love, we are also realizing how to balance the Divine Feminine and the Masculine energies within us. We are in a phase where learning how to balance and redirect our energy is significant.
Libra is a very detail-oriented sign. We are looking at every aspect of our lives, and re-evaluating what our new normal will look like--now AND later. What pain have we not attempted to heal? How are we presenting ourselves? How do you show up for yourself and others? What can we do differently?
Another good question to ask yourself is how are you connecting with others right now? Are you in a position to safely emotionally support your loved ones, friends, partner, neighbors? People are coming together to support one another in small ways that make all of the difference. We are finding ways to build and maintain community while also maintaining our social distance, which is truly incredible. We are fortunate to have the gift of technology to reach out to the people in our lives that we love...definitely try to take advantage of the various ways of reaching out to those that you care about!
You will find a lot of sensitivity in the root and sacral chakras during this full moon. The root chakra is at the base of our spine where the tailbone is located. The root governs our sense of security, safety, belonging, survival, and grounding. The sacral chakra is right below the navel. The sacral chakra governs creativity, sexual experiences, and sexual health. This seems very relevant right now, as a lot of us are worried for our safety and security. We are also finding new creative ways to cope, even if that just means doing what we normally don't have time to do--which could be resting and relaxing for you!
