Want to put a little love in your heart? Well, it's gonna take some effort this week. Peace and harmony may be the Libra way—this sign counts Gandhi, John Lennon, and Alfred Nobel (of the Nobel Peace Prize) among its balanced ranks, after all.
So normally, a Libra full moon would be occasion to celebrate our soft spot for all mankind, passing out olive branches and goodwill.
However, the March 23, 2016, Libra full moon poses a challenge to that stereotype. It's particularly potent because it’s a lunar eclipse, which sweeps in and promptly confronts all our expectations.
Eclipses are known for prompting sudden change, turning potential energy into kinetic (active) energy, and revealing our "shadow" selves, as described by Dr. Jung. (Read all about this spring's eclipses here.)
The big news? This eclipse is the grand finale in a series of eclipses on the Aries/Libra axis, which began in October 2013. Throughout this series—the past two and a half years—you may have seen a dramatic reprioritization in your own life of the "me" and the "we."
