The astrological Full Moon occurs when the earth is located in between the Sun and the Moon, allowing the Sun’s rays to illuminate the whole of the earth-facing side of the Moon – this is what creates the beautiful circular Full Moon we see from Earth.
Astrology holds that the Full Moon represents a time of completion, as we can see from the circular disc of the Moon being gradually completed. Full Moons in astrology are also periods of reflection and illumination, in much the same way as the Sun’s light is reflected from the Moon on a Full Moon night.
The Full Moon in Libra occurs on April 16th, 2022, and it is our quest for harmony and peace which will feel complete and upon which we can reflect, making this potentially a very uplifting moment.
Libra as a zodiac sign seeks harmony and balance above all else. As an air sign, it always aims to achieve this balance and peace through communication and intelligence. The Full Moon in Libra is an example of how this can be done, as we are encouraged to reach out to those we might not agree with and to engage in friendly, rational debate with them. This is one way of bringing harmony, if not agreement.
Libra is often seen as quite a passive energy, but actually, this is a cardinal sign, and one which leads and takes action. The Full Moon in Libra seeks peace, but it’s willing to obtain that peace via hard work and positive action; when the Full Moon is in Libra, peace is hard-won; we don’t expect it to fall into our laps.

In astrology, a Full Moon is also an opportunity for us to confront the shadow aspects of the sign opposite to the Full Moon. In this case, the Libra Full Moon brings out the shadow elements of Aries – a sign which can be selfish, aggressive, impulsive and domineering.
During this Full Moon, look at your own recent behavior. Have you been selfish? Have you dealt with something too aggressively when a softer approach would have been beneficial? Do you do something on impulse and regret it later? Use the energies of this Full Moon to forgive yourself for these Aries shadow traits, but also to learn.
How the Libra Full Moon Affects Each Zodiac Sign
Each Sun sign will feel the effects of the Libra Full Moon slightly differently. All signs will be experiencing a sense of completion or ending in some way, but the specifics will vary according to which solar house the Full Moon falls in for each zodiac sign.
Full Moon in Libra for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
The Full Moon shines from your love zone, Aries, so the harmony you’re celebrating is likely to stem from a love relationship or other close interpersonal connection. You’re working on being the best partner you can be, Aries, and it’s truly paying off, so keep on keeping on and keep on striving for that special connection.
Full Moon in Libra for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
Celebrate progress in harmony between your mental health and your physical health. Work on having these two parts of your wellbeing work together – if you are getting enough physical exercise, your mental health will improve, and better mental health leads to more motivation to get physically well. Seek a balance and congratulate yourself on how far you’ve come.
Full Moon in Libra for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
Creative harmony is the focus of this Full Moon, and that will come when you start to trust your head as well as your heart. Don’t fall for the falsehood that logic and intellect have no place in creativity or that it is all heart-led – get your emotions and your intellect working together to maximize your creative spark.
Full Moon in Libra for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
The Libra Full Moon is about harmony in the home; this may mean it’s time to redecorate, in order to achieve a physically harmonious atmosphere – or it may focus more on emotional harmony between family members. Don’t stifle discussion and debate at home, because harmony is much more likely to come when people are able to speak their minds.
Full Moon in Libra for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)/strong>
You can use your words to create harmony and balance during this Full Moon, as it blesses your communication zone. Learn the impact of what you say and discover how to be a more effective, more intuitive communicator. You can certainly command an audience, but now it’s time to work on creating an emotional connection via the content of what you say.
Full Moon in Libra for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)
Seek harmony between your finances and your values during this Full Moon, Virgo. The best way to do this is to ensure that what you do for a living, to create your income, matches up with your values and with your authentic self. Work on clearing blocks to abundance, Virgo, and on creating a healthy emotional relationship with money.
Full Moon in Libra for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)
With the Full Moon in your own sign, it’s time to seek harmony in your own identity and the way you express it. This is the time to step out of the pigeonhole or box others have put you in and to stand up for who you truly are. Shine your true colors and let the world see what you have to offer. You can present yourself with confidence now – we’re waiting.
Full Moon in Libra for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
During the Libra Full Moon, the focus is on spiritual harmony for you, Scorpio. That means coming to terms with your spiritual gifts and trying to develop them further. Listen to messages in your dreams or from your higher self, Scorpio – these may arrive via synchronicity or unusual coincidences. It’s all about getting comfortable with your spiritual self.
Full Moon in Libra for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
Harmony within groups is the key theme of this Full Moon for you, Sagittarius, and that means taking the lead within your community or your social groups to heal any divisions. This is also a good time to ensure that your long-term goals still match up with your values and your life priorities.
Full Moon in Libra for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)
This Libra Full Moon activates your career zone, Capricorn, which means that for you, the peace and harmony it offers comes in terms of career security. You should feel more confident now about your professional potential. Don’t be afraid to aim high and to switch your path, Capricorn, if you feel that you resonate more with an entirely different career route.
Full Moon in Libra for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)
For you, Aquarius, peace and harmony in this Full Moon come from understanding that it’s OK to change your mind. An outdated opinion of yours needs to go, and that creates quite a mindset shift within you – this is a good thing! Being mature enough to move forwards in this way brings you peace of mind and a better understanding of yourself.
Full Moon in Libra for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
The Full Moon in Libra activates a very sensitive part of your chart, Pisces. As it does so it encourages you to offer forgiveness to someone who has wronged you. In this way, you will regain peace of mind, Pisces, rather than allowing this person and their wrongdoing towards you to dominate your life. Forgiveness is an act of compassion not only towards another person but also towards oneself.
