What is marriage? That is the question many have been asking for years. Yesterday, the Surpreme Court began two days of arguments regarding the hot topic of marriage equality for the LGBTQ community. It looks like those in question are on the edge of some much-needed clarity.
Libra is the sign of partnership and marriage. With today’s Full Moon in Libra (opposing the Sun in bold, trailblazing Aries), relationships of all kinds are being illuminated. The illumination of the Full Moon leads to all types of revelations, discoveries and sudden shifts in consciousness, as we are able to see growth in the seeds we have previously planted. The moon is the archetypal mother, and when she’s full, it’s like she’s giving birth. The Full Moon is a culmination of sorts.
After years of fighting for civil rights, the LGBTQ community and heterosexual supporters of gay marriage are nearing the moment of truth. Is it any coincidence that the final stretch of this uphill battle began the day before the Libra Full Moon? Fortunately, Libra also represents compromise, equality, and justice, so maybe the government will play nice and put an end to the ban on same-sex marriage.
Whether you’re for or against gay marriage, one thing is for sure; your definition of marriage will never be the same. Gay, straight, or other, relationships as we know them are being redefined as we progress into a new age. While it seems most people are spending their Libra Full Moon celebrating a highly anticipated change, some others will undoubtedly find themselves stuck, asking the question, “What is marriage?”
