E piʻi ka Mahina Piha ma Pōʻakahi, ʻiwakāluakūmāʻono ʻApelila i loko o 12° o ka Iloano ma 8:32 PM Wā Pākīpika.
(The Full Moon will be exact on Monday, April 26th in 12° of Libra at 8:32 PM Pacific Time)
HE AHA KA MAHINA PIHA? (WHAT IS THE FULL MOON?)
The Full Moon is the climax of the lunar month that corresponds with the transitions from youth to maturity in the life cycle, ovulation in the menstrual cycle and the culmination of the Summer season with the Solstice. It marks the midpoint of the lunar month. This Moon phase is considered Yang, meaning a time to take action—this a kāne energy associate with release. When we have a Mahina Piha, the Lā and the Malama (another name for the Moon) are in opposition to each other. She becomes like a mirror and reflects the Lā’s light onto the Honua.
When the Moon is Māhealani, metaphorically speaking, she is operating like a lighthouse and showing us the ala (path) we must take in order to continue on with our Mahina Hou (New Moon) intentions. We’ll start to figure out what has worked and what didn’t work from the past two weeks, which is turn help to bring clarity as to what our next steps will be to holomua (move forward or make progress and improve).
This will usually MANAfest as things to let go of that aren’t aligned with our goals for this particular Malama (Moon Cycle). It doesn’t matter if we set intentions or not, we’ll be feeling called to let go of a lot of mea (stuff) right now. This could be material things, relationships, toxic behavior patterns, or even unconscious thoughts that aren’t aligned with our ʻoiaʻiʻo (truth). Be open to the process, because it’ll happen anyway.
Since the Mahina is in the kaha kokiaka (zodiac sign) of Iloano, we’ll feel called to let go of things that will allow us to make changes in different parts of our lives. Your pakuhi hānau (Sidereal Natal Chart) contains mau hale (houses) that will give you insight as to what areas of your life need these changes. All you need to know is what kaha kokiaka your ʻekolu nui (big 3: Sun, Moon + Rising) are in.
With Libra and Aries involved in this tug o’ war, we may be seeing how we relate to other people and how they relate to us does or doesnʻt resonate with your naʻau (your gut, or innermost workings). The Aries/Libra axis deals with the self and its outward projection in itʻs environment, and the adjustments that are needed in our daily dealings with others. It also an axis of polarity, while both signs are cardinal, one is wahine (Libra) and the other is kāne (Aries). Mars rules Aries and Venus rules Libra. In mythology, Venus was caught cheating with Mars while she was committed to Vulcan. Take what you will with that snippet.
The goal during this time is to find balance between autonomy and compromise, self assertion and cooperation, respect for the self and respect others.
MANA O ILOANO (Energy of Libra)
Libra is associate with balance, beauty and partnerships. Libra natives tend to be cooperative, fair and charming, but sometimes they can be indecisive, self-indulgent and can exhibit narcissistic tendencies.
Libra is an air sign which is part of the reason why these natives tend to be very social, like Gemini, a fellow air sign. Theyʻre usually easygoing, diplomatic and polished. Their dominant keyword would be balance because they are constantly trying to establish balance/harmony. This is also the sign of all kinds of relationships and these Venusian are happiest functioning in a union and lose their equilibrium and positive outlook when theyʻre alone.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Know when itʻs time to let things go that arenʻt bringing peace and happiness into your relationship with others and the self. Know that balance is being restored and anything happening is part of the process. Trust it.
HOW THIS WILL AFFECT YOU
In order to get an accurate interpretation of how this will influence you based on your birth chart, you must know your ʻekolu nui—Sun, Moon, and Rising signs. So for example, Iʻll use mine. Iʻm an Aries Sun, Capricorn Moon, Cancer Rising. This is activating my 4rd, 7th, and 10th mau hale, so how am I communicating with myself in way that is sabotaging my health or daily habits?
