Full Moon April 2022 Astrology

The April 16 full moon at 26°45′ Libra looks complex in the chart below. It makes positive aspects to Mars and Saturn, and challenging aspects to Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto. There are also two very positive fixed stars that align with this full moon. But the one planet that stands out the most in the chart is Pluto. And full moon square Pluto is the strongest influence on this 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 in Libra 2022 Aspects

Full Moon square Pluto can lead to compulsive and destructive behavior as deeply buried feelings are exposed. Emotional power struggles are possible and may become quite ruthless. Jealousy, manipulation, guilt-tripping, bullying, sexual abuse, or domestic violence may be involved.

Such intense emotions and reactions may become difficult to control and lead to a personal crisis. This aspect is also associated with spying and other invasions of privacy. Confronting family secrets may be revealed, or your own secrets or embarrassing habits may be exposed in public.

Although sometimes very painful, gaining awareness of destructive Pluto influences can be healing, with opportunities to transform and evolve. The Moon trine Mars and Saturn make this easier. It also makes this a good full moon to eliminate bigotry, racism, fears and phobias, addiction, sexual problems, and unhealthy relationships.

The Fixed Stars

The April 2022 Full Moon in Libra Sign is actually in the Virgo Constellation. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago. It was always the Constellations, or more specifically the fixed stars that were used for astrological interpretation. Not the Signs which were only meant to be a measuring devise.

Full Moon April 2022 [Stellarium]Full Moon April 2022 [Stellarium]
  • 24♎09 – Alpha Virginis, Spica
  • 24♎32 – Alpha Boötis, Arcturus
  • 26♎45 – Full Moon April 2022
  • 28♎25 – Epsilon Boötis, Izar

Fixed star Arcturus gives riches, honors, high renown, self-determination and prosperity by navigation and voyages. It is like Mars and Jupiter (great pride, grandly liberal, commanding, cosmopolitan views.) [1]

Arcturus gives an enterprising spirit but has a reputation of achieving justice through power. It, therefore, makes the native belligerent and quarrelsome. If critically aspected (yes, square Pluto), the good influence will be hampered or made into a real handicap. If involved in legal action, such a native may lose all. [2]

Moon conjunct Arcturus: New friends, business success, good judgment, domestic harmony. [1]

Constellation Boötes gives prosperity from work, strong desires, a tendency to excess, a fondness for rural pursuits, together with some liking for occultism. [1]

Full Moon April 2022 Summary

The strongest influence on the full moon April 2022 astrology is the challenging square to Pluto. This brings the potential for destructive, intense and extreme emotions, reactions and behaviors. This is not a good omen for the war in Ukraine as this aspect is associated with torture, rape, and genocide.

Thankfully, the full moon aligns with the two most fortunate fixed stars used in astrology. Although the orb of over two degrees means they only have a weak influence. Further positive but mild influences come from the full moon trine Mars and Saturn.

The positive influences combined will help to reduce the challenging influence of Pluto. It gives you the chance to free yourself of bad habits, obsessions and compulsions. This will lead to healing from a positive transformation of your emotions and relationships.

But fixed star Arcturus also has a reputation for achieving justice through power, causing belligerence and quarrels. Another reason not to take this full moon in Libra 2022 lightly is Pluto retrograde. Just before the end of this moon phase, on April 29, 2022, Pluto stations retrograde at 28°35′ Capricorn. It will be square the Moon at 27°00′ Aries. This reinforces the theme of addressing your darkest feelings, habits, and reactions.

The April 16 full moon lasts for 2 weeks up to the April 30 solar eclipse. The waning moon phase is good for releasing and letting go, resting, healing, regenerating, contemplating, meditating, decluttering, harvesting, pruning, and hair cutting.

Looking Back

The April 16 full moon is the final moon phase of the current eclipse cycle which began at the end of November 2021. So this is a good time to look back at how those eclipses affected you. The closer we get to the April 30 solar eclipse, the more intense the pressure becomes to finalize those issues the previous eclipses brought up:

  • Lunar Eclipse November 19, 2021 at 27♉14 has been especially difficult, with the potential for misfortune, violence, sickness, greed, immorality, irresponsibility, and excessiveness. But it also helps you access the deepest darkest areas of your subconscious, exposing them to eliminate fear and heal past trauma. With honesty, faith, and a strong sense of purpose, you can evolve your soul to a higher level.
  • Solar Eclipse December 4, 2021, at 12♐22 brought the potential for a crisis caused by unexpected setbacks and restrictive change. It increases the risk of violence, crime, sickness, terrorism and war. But it also gives the common sense, patience, and cautious attitude to adapt to challenging conditions.
