Full Moon April 2019 Astrology
The April 19 full moon at 29°06′ Libra makes aspects to Venus which rules love and Uranus which rules change. Unfortunately, both aspects are challenging so this full moon could bring relationship uncertainty and tension.
Uranus Change and Uncertainty
Sun conjunct Uranus brings excitement, unexpected change and freedom. You should feel a strong urge to break free from routine, doing something totally different from your normal activities. But with Moon opposite Uranus, unexpected changes and upsetting disruptions could bring restlessness and nervous tension.
Flexible and open-mindedness will increase the likelihood of more pleasant surprises and thrilling experiences. But if this impulsive energy affects your ego, you could take unnecessary risks or rebel against authority. Aggressive reaction and conflict may follow, with danger to yourself and your reputation.
Moon opposite Uranus can cause emotional upsets and relationship turmoil. Impulsive reactions and emotionally based decisions could turn a minor drama into total chaos. So take extra care when making important decisions, especially about relationships.
A strong need for independence can also be a strongly disruptive force. Unexpected events, mood swings or emotional detachment can put a lot of strain on your home and family as well as intimate relationships.
Venus Love and Self Worth
Moon quincunx Venus increases your need for love and affection but also increases relationship tension, especially involving women. Tension rises because of an imbalance involving emotional support and love. The amount of loved received is not the same as the amount given.
Seeking satisfaction elsewhere would involve secrecy and the risk of being caught. Emotional comfort may even be sought in sweet food or drugs. Even if you don’t have any problems with others, you could still experience an internal imbalance involving self-love and self-image.
Karmic imbalances may be related to a family member, possibly your mother. Addressing unresolved issues from this relationship is the key to resolving other challenging imbalances in your life. An interfering or overly possessive mother is one challenge you may have to face. Infidelity, addiction or health issues are other possible sources of relationship tension that you may need to deal with.
Asteroid Hybris at 28°47′ Libra is conjunct the full moon. Asteroid 430 Hyrbis is named after the Greek goddess Hubris, representing extreme or foolish pride, dangerous over confidence and arrogance. It usually brings about the downfall, or nemesis, of the perpetrator of hubris.
In ancient Greek, hubris referred to actions that shamed and humiliated the victim for the pleasure or gratification of the abuser. The term had a strong sexual connotation, and the shame reflected upon the perpetrator as well.
Today, hubris denotes overconfident pride and arrogance associated with a lack of humility and sometimes ignorance. Hubris is often followed by suffering or punishment (nemesis in Greek mythology).
