The Full Moon is on Wednesday, April 5 at 11:34 pm CDT in 16° Libra, a sign of balance and diplomacy. Libra brings the ability to talk through issues in relationships without antagonizing the other person. Social occasions and meet-ups with friends create good conversations. If there are friends or family you haven't contacted in a long time, this could be a good astrologically indicated opportunity. Professional networking can open up new possibilities.
The Sun in Aries in the Full Moon's chart is conjunct Jupiter expanding the natural Libra good will. Allow an attitude of gratitude to guide you. Try this affirmation:
I am open and receptive to all the good and abundance in the Universe.
What is Astrology?
Goswami Kriyananda's guru Shelly Trimmer framed everything with a mystic's point of view. Here is his definition of astrology:
"What is astrology? Basically speaking, astrology is the language of the soul, an expression of the spirit, the law of the Self. Each night, as you sleep, your dreams are composed of its language. It is You, and the basic laws of the You applied to this sector of time and space, on this planet Earth, in this solar system of soul, with this Sun."
This quote is from Ray Grasse's book When the Stars Align. A whole chapter in this book is a transcript of a rare lecture on astrology by Sri Shellyji. Ray also wrote a whole book about Shelly: An Infinity of Gods: Conversations with an Unconventional Mystic.
I really liked this Philip Goldberg article about the commonality across various religions as looked at through the lens of the four traditional yogic pathways:
