The Libra full moon on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, increases the risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic. Full moon April 2020 makes an aspect to Neptune that is associated with health imbalances. And Neptune is the planet of illness and infection.
The April 2020 full moon is made more dangerous by Mars square Uranus. This impulsive influence makes people rebellious and aggressive. Jupiter conjunct Pluto amplifies the risks but a positive aspect to Mercury gives understanding and common sense. It means smart thinking and cooperation with friends and neighbors is the key to staying safe and relatively happy during the difficult moon phase.
Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Full Moon April 2020 Astrology
The April 7 full moon at 18°43′ Libra makes one minor aspect to Neptune so the recent theme of illness and infection continues. The fixed stars in this area do not have an important influence on the full moon but there are other planetary aspects that are very significant. They do offer some hope but overall, this is another challenging moon phase.
Neptune Illness and Infection
Full Moon quincunx Neptune increases your emotional sensitivity which can lead to confusion, insecurity and neurotic distress. The quincunx is an aspect of health imbalances, and Neptune rules illness and infection. So full moon April 2020 also increases the risks posed by the coronavirus. Cleanliness and hygeine are critical during this two-week moon phase.
There is also a risk of misdiagnosis, over-sensitivity to medications, addiction, and poisoning. Paranoia and suspicion can lead to mistrust and the poisoning of a relationship. You may be susceptible to isolation, gossip, scandal, betrayal, loss or disappointment. Interestingly, the coronavirus pandemic chart has this same aspect with almost the same orb.
Jupiter conjunct Pluto is exact on April 4, only three days before the full moon. With an orb of only 0°18′, this is a very powerful influence for the whole moon phase. This major alignment is widely square the full moon which makes it more challenging than it would normally be. But it is exactly sextile Mercury which brings progressive thinking and perhaps even some good news.
Jupiter conjunct Pluto can make you very focused and driven to succeed. A mix of intense effort and good luck can bring power and influence to make a big difference in your life.
However this conjunction is going to intensify and exacerbate the coronavirus pandemic. This is because it falls on Pluto on the pandemic chart at 24°30′ Capricorn. So there will be more fear, mass death and extreme measures to restrict the spread of the virus.
Some people will react with ruthless, extreme, self-righteous, prejudiced, immoral or obsessive behavior. Selfishness, greed, jealousy, revenge, racism, violence and crime are possible.
Mercury sextile Jupiter brings positive thinking which should reduce the risk of those destructive behaviors mentioned above. A broad outlook and excellent decision-making skills allow you to make plans in response to new laws and regulations. This is a good full moon to implement new routines at home for schooling children.
Mercury sextile Pluto gives the intense focus and concentration to research the truth and uncover secrets. You can trust your intuition to guide your decisions. Mercury sextile Jupiter-Pluto means you transform your way of thinking and adapt to new restrictions affecting communications and movements. Working together with your friends and neighbors will help you stay safer and happier.
Full Moon Danger
Mars square Uranus only 8 hours before the full moon will have a dangerous influence. It will make people impulsive and erratic as they rebel against the restrictions imposed by governments. A tendency to act rashly without regard for the consequences may lead to great disruption or conflict.
You cannot restrain this erratic energy so you must express your crazy, creative or inventive side in a safe environment. Find a creative outlet socially, sexually or through a hobby. Get your kinky or dangerous desires out of your system in a safe way without upsetting others. Avoid impulsive actions and taking dangerous risks.
