March’s Full Moon will arrive tomorrow evening (March 28) when the Moon finds itself directly across from the Sun with the Earth in the middle. The Moon will peak in brightness at about 7.48pm BST but astrologers believe its energies will already be felt today. And you want to pay attention to this Full Moon because there is a lot to unpack in your horoscope this weekend.
A Full Moon appears once a month at the halfway point of the lunar cycle – about two weeks after the New Moon.
Astrologers, consequently, see Full Moons as a cosmic peak of sorts.
Any seeds planted two weeks ago are about to sprout and you have an opportunity to think about the future.
Tomorrow’s Full Moon will peak in the sign of Libra – the seventh star sign of the zodiac.
Libra is said to be a gentle diplomat and communicator who avoids conflict at all costs.
This will work in your favour, according to Jamie Partridge of AstrologyKing.com., particularly if there has been trouble in your love life recently.
He said: “The Libra Full Moon on Sunday, March 28, 2021, has an alignment of the Sun, Venus, and Chiron.
“So the spiritual meaning of full moon March 2021 astrology relates to the healing of broken hearts.
“The March 2021 Full Moon is also in a favourable aspect to Saturn.
“This means it is good for finding a serious, long-term partner, and for getting engaged or married.”
The Moon is traditionally said to reflect the inner self, that is, your deepest dreams, fears, emotions.
In stark contrast, the Sun represents your outer self and how you manifest in public.
Full Moons are, therefore, expected to exemplify and boost these aspects of your life.
Simone Matthews of Universallifetools.com explained: “While the New Moon is a time to set intentions for the future and launch new projects, the Full Moon is a time of culmination and fruition.
“Starting with the ‘dark’ phase of the New Moon, the lunar surface gathers light over a two-week period, then manifests as a full moon.
When the Moon is completely full, it’s a spiritual and energetic pinnacle of whatever you started when the Sun and the Moon united at the New Moon.”
This Full Moon is also important to Christians worldwide because its arrival will set the date of Easter this year.
Easter always arrives on the first Sunday after the first Full Moon of Spring.
Spring sprung this year on Saturday, March 20, and with the Full Moon on March 28, Easter will take place on Sunday, April 4.
This Moon is, consequently, sometimes known as the Paschal Moon.
Gordon Johnston of the US space agency NASA said: “In the western Christian ecclesiastical calendar this is the Paschal Moon, from which the date of Easter is calculated. Paschal is the Latinized version of Pesach.
“Generally, the Christian holiday of Easter, also called Pascha, is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first Full Moon of spring.”
