April Full Moon 2022 is in Libra, the sign ruled by Venus. This lunation joins a whole host of planetary conjunctions that are sure to add a whole extra layer of energy—especially in your most intimate relationships.

The fourth month of the calendar year is certainly filled with a heck of a lot of lunar energy and one of the most highly charged in the Moon calendar 2022—with a New Moon at the beginning and end of the month!

This lunation, also called the Pink Moon, comes bang in the middle of these lunar events, on April 16. This is following the firey fire sign energy brought in by the New Moon April 2022, which said that if we stay true to ourselves and what we desire, anything is possible.

Grab your love horoscope 2022 real quick, because during this Full Moon the stars are asking us to pay attention to our most intimate relationships—and the most recent journey we have been on in love and in partnership.

Whenever the moon is in Libra, we consider how we relate to one other, if we feel seen, heard, appreciated, and valued. Because this is a Full Moon, it signals a cosmic critical juncture where we must decide how to proceed based on how we answer that question. 

With the Sun and Moon making a tense square to transformational Pluto, it signals that what’s been buried beneath the surface can no longer remain hidden. Expect secrets to be revealed, truths to be uncovered, and deep emotions to emerge. 

Remember that Venus is the ruler of Libra and therefore reigns over this Full Moon. Venus, currently in Pisces, is making her way to join abundant Jupiter and dreamy Neptune. After all, Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces is a magical once-in-a-lifetime conjunction.

It’s our celestial clue that hope is on the horizon and a reminder that when you lead with equal parts authenticity and compassion, nothing can shake your equilibrium. In light of it being merely a fortnight ahead of Venus conjunct Jupiter 2022, you'd better pay attention to matters of the heart!

Here's how the Libra Full Moon will affect you depending on your star sign. For the most accurate reading, look at your sun or rising sign according to your astrology birth chart.

Aries Sun & Aries Rising

Aries, your keyword for this Libra Full Moon is “compromise.” Libra energy activates the opposite sign in your chart. Right now, it means you’re being called to consider other people and your dynamics with them. It’s the age-old question of give-and-take. You can certainly ask if you are giving more than you are getting back. But beyond time or energy, are you giving all of yourself? Are you able to? Are you accepted for your truths? There is no quicker way to burn out the light of your fierce Aries fire than feeling misunderstood. For you, being alone is less lonely than finding out you’re surrounded by people who you can’t be authentic with. If so, it could be time for careful recalibration. For you to be at your best, you must be with those who allow you the freedom to express yourself honestly. Don’t dim your magical shine for anyone. 

Taurus Sun & Taurus Rising

If you’ve been feeling like you’re going through the motions, this Full Moon in Libra is a cosmic invitation to be more mindful about your minutes. Zooming through daily errands, chores, and routines can certainly tick off boxes on a to-do list, but you could wonder what it’s all for if you’re not slowing down to enjoy the process. And that’s where you thrive, Taurus. In slowing down and savoring every moment. Use this Full Moon to think about your daily routine less like a daily grind and more like a daily commitment. One you’re making to yourself. Consider which parts of your routine you want to remain committed to. Which ones fill you up and which ones deplete you. Which ones leave you nourished and which ones activate uncomfortable emotions. If you can let go of the ones that aren’t adding to your day, you can tip the cosmic scales back to balanced.

Gemini Sun & Gemini Rising

For you, Gemini, this Full Moon is all about fun—and asking yourself if you’re having any right now. All work and no play with make anyone feel a bit dull, but for you especially, boredom is the quickest way to dampen your spirits. This is a time where you have full cosmic permission to let go some of those adult responsibilities that may be weighing you down and embrace the freedom of feeling like a kid again. To get inspired again. Ask yourself what has been holding you back from expressing the full scale of your wit and charm. Consider if you need more real-world fun and less time spent online. Are you consuming more content than you are currently creating? You’re not one to be passive or play small. Time to be an active participant in your life and put your whole self out there. 

Cancer Sun & Cancer Rising

This Full Moon is an invitation to think about parenting—and it could be a healing time if you’ve ever considered reparenting yourself. Family is important to you, Cancer. And as we get older, it’s a common phenomenon to find yourself speaking to younger generations or your own child the same way your mother, father or an authority figure spoke to you. It’s that moment when the realization dawns on you. History is repeating itself and you’re in a different role. During this lunation, consider if that creates a sense of harmony for you or one of uneasiness. Think about the role you played and are now playing. Are there traditions you want to carry forward for a new generation—or is this a time to offer yourself and others some care and compassion that you longed for and may have felt elusive? You can release this if it’s a burden.

Leo Sun & Leo Rising

Leo, this is a time to investigate the quality of your communications with others. Think about your latest conversation with your family. Your siblings. Your friends. The stranger behind you in line. A person commenting on your social media post. What are those interactions like—and more importantly, how do they leave you feeling after they’re over? Do you find yourself wishing you could have said something differently? Expressed yourself with more kindness? With more authenticity? With more open-ending curiosity and questions and less stubbornness? When you have your answer, take time under the influence of this Full Moon to determine where you may be letting yourself down—or where others might be. You’re not known as a shrinking violet, so ensure that your voice is being heard in service to, but not at the expense of, the relationships you care so much about.

Virgo Sun & Virgo Rising

Can you celebrate when you have a win, Virgo? Can you cheer for yourself with the same energy that you give out in support of others? Those are the questions you must sit with during this Full Moon in Libra. It’s a lunation that is asking you to consider what you are worth, what you deserve, and how much you value the qualities that others see so readily in you. The very ones you may minimize or write off as “not a big deal.” This Libra Moon wants you to know that whatever it is that you’re thinking about, that event or milestone, is in fact a very big deal. Use this lunation’s energy to treat yourself like your own friend and then act as you would if you were celebrating them. Send yourself flowers. Buy a cake. Enjoy a toast. Be your own cheerleader. You deserve it.

Libra Sun & Libra Rising

Libra, if there were ever a time to choose you, this Full Moon in your sign is telling you that the moment has come. And yes, it may be initially uncomfortable for you. You’re always considering everyone else’s feelings, their wants, their needs. As noble as this inclination is, the question that’s been building to this critical climax is this: is there something you’re avoiding within yourself? When we focus so much on what’s happening outside of us, it’s easy to lose sight of what we do have domain of, where we can exert the most control. Trust that the other person you’re thinking of can take care of themselves. They can make the best decision for their own interests. Just like you can. Remember that. If they can, then so can you. And now is your time to be all about you. Choose you and allow the clarity that comes from that simple mindset shift.

Scorpio Sun & Scorpio Rising

Scorpio, consider this Full Moon in Libra as you setting up a celestial out-of-the-office automatic reply. You don’t have to answer any emails right away. You do not need to reply to texts. And you do not need to say yes if you all you want is to say no. The best part is you do not have to feel guilty about it, either. Sometimes the best way you can show up for others in the future is by not feeling the need to show up where you don’t want to—and when you’d rather not. There is power in silence and power in rest. It’s time to recharge your batteries—literally and figuratively. With so much time in our week spent staring at our phones, facing a glaring computer screen, or endlessly scrolling through social media, take this weekend to be offline. You’ll be ready for the next cycle refreshed and recharged.

Sagittarius Sun & Sagittarius Rising

As arguably—and notoriously—the most fun-loving sign of the zodiac, this Full Moon in Libra is inviting you, Sagittarius, to go out and do the things you love doing with the people you love doing it with. The last several years have certainly seen our worlds shrink. While some signs may have enjoyed the comforts of home, you’ve always longed for excitement and adventure. You thrive on conversation, sharing big ideas and having even bigger experiences. Now is the time to consider taking all the hard lessons you’ve learned over the last few years, when fun was in shorter supply, and decide how you want to move forward—and who you want by your side. Friends are the most precious relationships we have because we actively choose to participate in them under no legal or familial obligation. So show your friends you care for them as much as you know they care for you.

Capricorn Sun & Capricorn Rising

There’s no sign that commands authority and respect quite like you, Capricorn. But this Full Moon is asking you to consider if it’s coming at the cost of your relationships, either personally or professionally. We know that you can shoulder responsibility, take charge, and lead a team. But can you delegate tasks? Can you ask for help when you need to—or could you even recognize that you needed to? It’s OK to need a break and it’s more than OK to ask for support. It may sound obvious to say, but it may not feel like an obvious, available option to you in the moment. With this Full Moon in Libra pointing towards the keyword of balance, it wants you to remember all the times you felt maxed out and at capacity—and then decide that you don’t have to live like that anymore as the price of success.

Aquarius Sun & Aquarius Rising

As an Aquarius, you’re the ultimate combination of dreamer and thinker. You can easily describe complex concepts or imagine a utopian future. But are you spending more time fantasizing about the possibilities than you are taking concrete steps towards making them real? Do you expect others to listen to your plans but bristle if they seem to offer you unsolicited advice? You have a trademark stubbornness. It makes you loyal and dedicated to your beliefs, which is admirable. But now is the time to think about letting some of that rigidity go so you can let new ideas in. Make space for someone else’s perspective. Allow someone to offer advice. Accommodate a new point of view. You have so much to offer others and conversely so much to learn from them. Open yourself up to new ways of relating and see what you get back as a result.

Pisces Sun & Pisces Rising

For this Full Moon, you’re being asked to think about sharing, Pisces. What are you sharing of yourself—and what is getting shared back with you? With this Full Moon in Libra activating the most secret and intimate part of your chart, there is a possibility that you could experience a naked truth or have a real vulnerability exposed. If the thought of that feels initially uncomfortable to you, consider if sitting with a secret might be more burdensome over the long run. No one wants to feel called out, but there is also freedom in revelation. When you don’t have to hide or worry about being found out. For now, consider the weight of a secret vs. the freedom of confession. Consider who you can share your feelings with and who no longer feels safe. Remember: it’s OK to hold on to one even if you have to let go of the other.
