  • Date: April 9 2017
  • Moon Sign: Libra
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: April 11 2:19 pm (ET) 11:19 am (PT) to Moon in Scorpio: Moon v/c in Libra is not one of the 4 void of course “good signs” Relationship issues may not go as planned, leave the planning until after the V.O.C moon… Venus is also in retrograde motion, adding stress and possible frustrations where relationships and money matters are concerned. Venus goes direct on April 14. 
  • House(s) using equal house method : 12th House of our dreams and wishes and perhaps our fears and phobias. She moves into the 1st house of self on April 10th
  • Opportunity Period: None

Full Moon 

  • The moon becomes full on April 11 (ET) and on April 10 (PT).
  • All of the following moon in Libra traits will be strengthened.
  • Those with personal planets in Libra may wish to work on creating a balance in their lives.
  • Taking time out and enjoying life’s luxuries may also be a good idea… Just watch your spending, as it’s probably easier to go over budget right now.
  • Issues dealing with judgement, such as court cases, custody issue’s or landlord issue’s may be on the agenda for some, if they are, staying calm and acting rationally will bring about better results. Libra can become passionate about things that aren’t fair and during the full these may seem “bigger” or worse than usual… 
  • Because the moon moves into Scorpio on the evening of the day the moon becomes full, Scorpio traits will also also be present this full moon and likely the negative ones as opposed to the more positive ones. Negative behavior such as drinking too much, or over indulging in other substances can be easier to do under the full moon’s influence. Be aware and be responsible and if you can’t be responsible then be very careful and try not to hurt or upset anyone else (who doesn’t deserve it) around you . 
  • The Full Moon is traditionally thought of as being the perfect time to wrap things up, finish projects and put an end to relationships and jobs or to move away… It’s not written in stone, however, as the moon will become full while in the 2nd quarter.. As the moon relates to our instincts, reactions and emotions, being “in touch” with them during a full is the best way to figure out if it’s a good time for you to end, stop or leave… 🙂

What does it all mean?

  • Libra has a need for balance, indicating this moon period may be an ideal time to implement some into our daily lives. 
  • A desire for justice may be present, dealing with issues that have upset our sense of justice may prove to be productive. 
  • Diplomacy is likely to be more apparent during the next few days, and may be a good time to bring up that topic you have been putting on the back burner. 
  • Hesitation is probably going to raise its head, we may see many sides of a story and find it difficult to make up our minds. 
  • Difficulty in making commitments or long-term decisions, because we can’t make up our minds. If this is the case perhaps wait a few days until the move has moved out of Libra. 
  • Libra is happiest when in a relationship or partnership. Indicating this may be a good time to begin one. 🙂 
  • Co-operation should be in the air, making this an ideal time to make plans with others. 
  • May be a good time to improve our appearance and surroundings. 
  • May be great time to go bargain hunting, 
  • In the 1st house: Our energy levels may be up and down, we can be more protective towards our loved ones, especially our children.. Relations with mother type personalities may be strained but they will remain strong. When it comes to allowing others to see our true self, we may find we aren’t as open to revealing as much as we had thought. 
  • In the 12th house: Some folks could be tempted to hide away from the world because it’s just so unfair and cruel… others may decide that numbing the unfairness with alcohol or other substances is for them… we can become “submerged” our spiritual world, we want to escape from the challenges of life and believe we are somewhere kinder and easier… As long as we come back to reality it’s a good way of refreshing ourselves and appreciating the good in our lives.
  • This moon sign will affect us all but will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
      • **Moon in Libra,
      • **Sun in Libra,
      • **Venus in Libra
      •  **Moon in 12th house
      •  **Moon in the 1st house
      • **Moon in 7th house,
      • **Any aspects to the Moon or Venus
      • **Midheaven in Libra
      • **Ascendant in Libra

In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-of-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void of Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void of Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Of-Course Moon: These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods. astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.

Full Moon April 15 2014: Moon void off course: Lunar Eclipse

Our lady becomes full on April 15 2014 at approximately 3:42 am where she is resting in the sign of Libra… but she also becomes void off course at the same time until she settles in with the sign of Scorpio at approximately 12:20 pm. This means we may feel the effects of both the Libra moon and the Scorpio Moon…

While the moon is void off course it is strongly suggested we not start projects or sign important documents or commit ourselves to people, events or places as we may have to retract our “promise” later, redo our projects or not finish them at all… or we may “regret” what we have signed at a later date… It is a good time to meditate, ponder and assess where we are .. And it’s a fabulous time to attend to routine tasks…. 

When the moon is full or becoming full in the few days leading up to the full moon it is traditionally suggested this time is best used to finish up projects we have already begun… And while it is not the best time to begin new projects, relationships, jobs etc… it shouldn’t stop us from making plans for the future, just as long as we don’t try to implement them now…. For those of us who have no choice but to begin something new during a full moon, take heart, it if doesn’t work out, keep the lessons learned and apply them in the future…. 🙂

The Moon in Libra is all about relationships, partnerships and making things beautiful… sometimes we can experience unbalanced relationships where a delicate handling may be required… and because the full moon represents completion it is possible that romantic relationships and business partnerships or sports relationships can come to an end now, if this is the case dealings should run fairly smoothly as most people are apt to be more agreeable. (Unless of course it is in their core nature to be awkward or create upset). It’s a great time to finish up our creative projects, especially ones which help to improve the look of our home or office.

The Moon in Scorpio….. ah this can be a challenging time for some… as our lady tends to become more sensitive here, and she can sometimes assume things, be jealous or take offence when none was meant… It is a good idea be more aware of our feelings now, but in a logical way instead of an emotional one… think before we speak, react, or act,  to avoid saying or doing things we may regret later, or which may hurt the feelings of others…. On the up side, it’s a great time for research and detective work, boding well for students and researchers… and regular folk who just want to discover something new or different… The Scorpio full moon may encourage us to be more intimate with another then we usually would be… this is great for lovers but care should be taken if single and out for a night on the town…


Solar and Lunar Eclipses Stock Vector - 24507378 Illustrator alhovik


Lunar Eclipse.… When a Lunar eclipse appears with a full moon it increases the effects of the full moon…. for 2 days before the full moon and for 1 day after the full moon, we may feel more anxious than normal and our time tables may be hectic, or at least it feels like it’s hectic, perhaps we feel disorganized or overwhelmed…. If an eclipse occurs on or near our birthday, it is likely that the coming year will prove to be one of transformation, changes and lessons…. wheel set in motion with a lunar eclipse full moon may take up to 6 months to occur…. This full moon/eclipse is on the edge of Libra, indicating issues and situations regarding relationships may be to the fore and will need attention… the love life could be unusual …

Full Moon in Virgo March 16 2014:

Traditionally it is said that as the moon grows into her fullest form, it is the best time for us to finish up projects… It’s not the best time to begin a project as you may be presented with more challenges than usual indicting that project may get put on the shelf for a while. Our confidence may also be “shaken” as we try our hardest to get something new off of the ground only to find delays surfacing we hadn’t anticipated.

When the full moon falls in the sign of Virgo, we are most likely to focus on fixing and fussing and our health…. we may be more apt to see the little details we would normally miss… which could make this an ideal time to view detailed written work or contracts.. although as the full moon represents the closing or ending of things it may not be the best time to sign on the dotted line regarding new projects or commitments…. Cleaning up the house, garage, office or car are excellent activities for this full moon… And if the weather cooperates this can also be a good time to get outside and go for a long walk or run… feeling healthy or taking care of our health can also be prompted with this full moon… 

The effects of this full moon will be felt the strongest by those who have the following: Virgo Moon: Virgo Sun: Moon in the 6th house: Sun in the 6th house: Aspects and transits to the moon. 

** Please Note*** The moon went void off course at the same time it became full… it then moved into the sign of Libra at 8:46 pm… thanks to Hocuspocus13 for catching that… 🙂 

Full Moon March 27 2013:

Our lovely lady becomes full on March 27 2013 at approx. 5: 27 am


The Full Moon is the perfect time to finish up on projects and get those loose ends sorted out…

Traditionally the Full Moon is not  the best time to begin new projects… so don’t start a new exercise regime this weekend, chances are you won’t stick with it, wait for the New Moon to pop up again… :)

This month the moon becomes full while in the sign of Libra and remains in Libra until 2:14 pm when she becomes void off course until she settles into the sign of Scorpio on March 28 2013 at 2: 14 pm. 

While the full moon is in Libra we may feel more inclined to beautify our surroundings, perhaps making this a good time to put the finishing touches to renovations and decorating…. 🙂 We may also feel like engaging in more harmonious relationships with our partners and loved ones, yet may also find our selves in the position of having to be the ones trying to balance the emotions within such relationships… 

Those most affected by a Libra Full Moon are those who have the following: 

Sun Libra: Moon Libra: Venus Libra: 

While the moon is in Scorpio we may feel emotions more intensely than usual and while this may indicate a desire to become intimate with someone, we must be on the look out for negative emotions such as jealously, or of becoming overly passionate about someone or something…

Those most affected by a Scorpio Moon are those who have the following: 

Sun Scorpio: Moon Scorpio: Pluto Scorpio:
