During the Full Moon in Libra, you will likely notice the quality of your relationships improving thanks to your thoughtful attempts at fairness and compromise. As human beings, we have a strange, but unconscious way of mimicking the behavior of others. When met by a charming smile from a stranger, our faces respond with an equally bright grin. Yawns have the same effect. Try coughing in a large public room full of people – at least a few folks will cough in response.
With those you are closest to, they too will mimic the consideration and respect that you’ve shown them. You’re beginning to see the flavor of your relationships take on a sweeter side. Who can resist a person who treats them with utmost respect, trust, and kindness? Power imbalances may begin to level out, as long as you continue to not only be thoughtful, but also clear about your own expectations.
If you have been working on redecorating your home or office, continue selecting colors, objects, and textures that produce a tranquil environment. Look through a few more catalogs, visit a few more stores, and soon you will have created a space that is worth all the work you put into it. Attend a couple of social gatherings where you can showoff your charming self while enjoying the gracious company of others. As the moon begins to wane, donate old clothes or furniture to charity.

Misunderstandings can easily occur during the brief period of this transit, for several reasons. Our perceptions are off right now, because we’re filtering information through our network of emotions, which means it won’t arrive at the other end of the process in the same condition that it went in. Communication and all forms of expression are emotionally tinged, both in the giving and the receiving. We think we know how other people feel, when actually we’re simply projecting our own emotions onto them. We may feel nervous and high-strung for no apparent reason. Happily, this influence will fade in a few short hours.

This impatient, jumpy energy will only last a few hours but can be quite irritating while it’s here. Suddenly folks are touchy and hypersensitive, taking offense where none was intended, becoming easily defensive and having emotional outbursts. It’s too easy to have one’s feelings hurt during this brief period and wounds that take only seconds to inflict may take much longer to heal. Impulsive or emotionally based actions are likely during this time, and usually won’t be beneficial in the long term. Tempers are short and arguments can easily ensue if folks give in to the self-indulgence or selfishness that this transit can create.

Painful or restrictive emotional memories affect our perceptions and moods during this short but intense transit. Folks are very hard on themselves and critical of others at the same time. Feelings of loneliness and inadequacy are pervasive and it’s very difficult to feel sympathetic to another person’s problems or even their point of view. We just don’t feel very tolerant or forgiving at the moment. In fact, we can feel quite judgmental, inflexible and severe. Needless to say, this is not the best time for tackling thorny emotional issues. Wait till tomorrow, when this troublesome energy has passed.
