True Blue Moon on Good Friday

True Blue Moon on Good Friday

and the Astrological Origins of Easter


We have a true Blue Moon this lunar month as the Full Moon on Fri 19 April is the second Full Moon in the sign of Libra, falling at 29 degrees.  You’ll see lots of erroneous media definitions of a Blue Moon, but astrologically, it’s when there’s a second Full Moon within the same sign, a fairly rare occurrence, and nothing to do with the actual colour of the Moon!   Last month’s Full Moon was at zero degrees Libra, and this month’s falls at 29 degrees Libra, making it a true genuine Blue Moon.

This second Full Moon in Libra gives us an additional opportunity to bring our lives into balance, the cosmic invitation extended by the Equinox and the Full Moon last month.  It highlights our need to relate to others, yet it also emphasizes the need to find a balance between the needs of the self and the needs of the other, between the need for independence and the need for compromise. This second Full Moon in Libra reinforces yet again the theme of the Equinox, the need to find balance in our lives.  This Full Moon falls at 29 degrees Libra, so check the houses of your chart to see which part of your life is under the spotlight. The Full Moon is exact at 9.12pm Queensland time (AEST) on Fri 19 April, Good Friday.

Easter Sunday this year falls on 21 April.  ‘What’s this got to do with Astrology?’  I hear you ask … Well, not many people realise but the date of Easter is determined by the Moon and the Equinox.  Easter Sunday is set as the first Sunday after the first Full Moon after the Equinox.  This is why the date of Easter changes each year, sometimes falling at the end of March and some years much later in April.  Astrology is present in our everyday lives much more than we realise!
