The Libra full moon on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, increases the risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic. Full moon April 2020 makes an aspect to Neptune that is associated with health imbalances. And Neptune is the planet of illness and infection.
The April 2020 full moon is made more dangerous by Mars square Uranus. This impulsive influence makes people rebellious and aggressive. Jupiter conjunct Pluto amplifies the risks but a positive aspect to Mercury gives understanding and common sense. It means smart thinking and cooperation with friends and neighbors is the key to staying safe and relatively happy during the difficult moon phase.
Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Full Moon Danger
Mars square Uranus only 8 hours before the full moon will have a dangerous influence. It will make people impulsive and erratic as they rebel against the restrictions imposed by governments. A tendency to act rashly without regard for the consequences may lead to great disruption or conflict.
You cannot restrain this erratic energy so you must express your crazy, creative or inventive side in a safe environment. Find a creative outlet socially, sexually or through a hobby. Get your kinky or dangerous desires out of your system in a safe way without upsetting others. Avoid impulsive actions and taking dangerous risks.
For those staying at home, April will bring a number of other moon- and stargazing events to see outside at night. This Friday, Venus will be visible near a cluster of stars called the Pleiades or the Seven Sisters, according to Alan MacRobert at Sky & Telescope. And as Brian Lada writes for AccuWeather, the Lyrids meteor shower peaks on April 22 and 23.
Michelle Nichols, director of public observing at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, tells WBEZ’s Katherine Nagasawa that people can easily stargaze near their home, even in a city. Both light pollution and air pollution can impact how stars appear in the sky, but lately, air pollution has fallen as there are fewer cars on the road and fewer factories at work.
“There’s no one best spot to observe the sky,” Nichols says. “The best place to observe the sky is wherever you currently are. So you don’t have to find that perfect location — it doesn’t exist. There are some sites that are better than others, but truly get to know the sky where you are.”
