Intuitive Astrology: April Full Moon 2016

astrology april full moon 2016

The April 21st-22nd Full Moon is going to be lighting up our buried desires, our passions and what we have truly been seeking in our lives.

Falling in the transformative, watery sign of Scorpio, this Full Moon is actually the smallest of the year.

Just because this Full Moon is small, doesn’t mean it will leave unnoticed. In fact, with both the ruling planets of Scorpio- Mars and Pluto in retrograde, chances are this Moon is going to create some sort of ripple effect in our lives that will be felt for months to come.

On the surface, the April Full Moon is very simple. In fact, it comes with very little fan fare and very little complexity. In a way, this Full Moon is about illuminating the passionate joy of our lives and where we need to work on creating more of it.

On a deeper level, we all walk through this life with a unique energy and vibration which creates the life that we lead, and when we learn how to tune into this, it can have profound effects on our lives.

This Full Moon is going to help us shine a light on our own energy so we can discern whether it is heading us in the direction that we truly desire.

The light is also going to help us determine if we have been following our passions or ignoring them.

While this Full Moon may not be enough to motivate us to take action, it will be enough to help us start thinking about what we want to achieve in this life and where we are heading.

In many ways, we have all been going through a deeply transformative process and now we are being encouraged to take a few steps back to see if the direction we are travelling in fits who we really are or if it is falling back to old habits.

We may not be able to see the path ahead, but if we are taking each step with conscious action and from a deeper soul place, then we can be certain we are on the path that is designed for us.

Essentially, this Full Moon is going to help us tune into our truth and work out what has truly been driving us forward.

Have we fooled ourselves into thinking that we wanted something for a particular reason?

Have we been climbing a tree that is leading us no where?

Are we at a fork in the road and confused about which path to take?

April’s Full Moon is going to help shine a light on all of these areas and begin the deeper questioning process into who we are and what we truly desire.

With many planets retrograde, the Full Moon will also be giving us the energy to move back through time and see where our past actions have lead us. In fact, many of the answers that we are seeking can be discovered with a trip down memory lane.

If there are things that we want to change, if there are patterns that need to be broken, this Full Moon will also help to illuminate and release some of these old blocks and wounds.

As the great poet Rumi states- “the wound is where the light enters you,” and this is very much the theme for this Full Moon.

Wherever this Full Moon touches us is also going to give us a clue as to how the retrogrades are going to effect us and where the root of our attention needs to be.

Pay attention to the events 4 days before and 4 days after the Full Moon, as you should notice something shifting or illuminating in your life during this time period.

April’s Full Moon may feel very quiet on the surface but if you feel a little deeper, you may notice how it is working to awaken you. In many ways, this Full Moon is like an iceberg that appears small on the waters surface, but so much bigger when you sharpen your gaze.

This Full Moon may also unleash something from inside us that has been buried for so long that may surprise us, or provide us with the information that we need to finally break free.

Secrets may also be unearthed during this Full Moon as the truth must be found in order for real healing to occur.

The end of April 2016 truly brings a slowing down of energy and this Full Moon is also going to signify a closing of the last few months, where we will all be given time to rest, reflect and ask the question- what do I truly desire?
