April 2023’s full moon in Libra on the 6th, coupled with a new moon back in Aries and a powerful solar eclipse on the 20th is sure to bring about any changes your soul is still calling for. 

Any time a solar eclipse coincides with a new moon, it means big changes, but Aries in particular is sure to bring some powerful shifts…if you’re ready for them. Hang on for the ride, and don’t forget to check out my new and full moon rituals later in the post!

April Full Moon + Crystal Guidance

The full moon in Libra on April 6th will shine a light on the balance in our lives–or, more accurately, the lack of it! If you’re lacking balance in your life, the full moon will show you exactly where it is. If anything is lacking in justice or harmony, it might feel overwhelming right now. 

Not to worry: this is your chance to breathe and let go. Any situations or circumstances that promote imbalance can be released now. If they’re not ready to go on their own, you can also take any action steps you may need to bring more balance into your life (if you feel ready to do so). 

Libra is a deeply spiritual energy that brings harmony to All that is. It can show you how to be perceptive and at peace with all situations…even those that feel uncomfortable. The full moon in Libra also brings partnership, so whether this is a work collaboration or a romantic connection, notice where love and support is highlighted right now. The full moon in Libra might just be helping you to connect with others by shining a bright light on it during these few days. 

April 2023 Crystal Guidance

Jenny Shanks Medium
Crystal is Azurite

Azurite is a deep indigo blue crystal that resonates with the heavenly realms and helps us seek enlightenment and wisdom. During the April full moon in Libra, azurite can help you to regain equilibrium if things feel a little off balance. It’s a wonderful stone for calming frazzled nerves and seeking knowledge. 

Keep a piece of azurite near you while you sleep or in your pocket or purse to steady you throughout the few days the moon is full in Libra.

April 2023 New Moon + Crystal Guidance

On April 20th, the new moon will be back in Aries, paired with a solar eclipse. This powerful energy can help you follow up on anything you were focusing on the March new moon (also in Aries), and then strengthen it even more due to the solar eclipse. The energy might feel wild right now, so hang in there. This is a great time for feeling into anything that needs to change in your life and then taking those action steps. It’s also a great time for some rest and reflection as you manage any intense feelings showing up. 

Aries is a commanding, dynamic sign that asks us to boldly live our purpose. If you are holding back a part of yourself, now is an excellent time to set some intentions for stepping into the spotlight. Like the Aries ram, you are allowed to grab life “by the horns” and see how these intentions grow into fruition over the next few days and weeks. 

If you have not yet had a fresh start this year (although 2023 has already provided several astrological opportunities!), now is the time. With the solar eclipse and the Aries new moon, you are being called to boldly, courageously, and confidently take those steps you’ve been longing to take.  

New Moon Crystal Guidance

Crystal is Bloodstone

Bloodstone is a wonderful stone for balancing and releasing old energies. It’s also a wonderfully courageous stone, so Aries resonates perfectly with its tendency to strengthen our resolve. Any tough emotions can be brought to the surface by a bloodstone, so use it to gently breathe through any difficult feelings right now. 

Bloodstone is also a grounding, harmonizing stone that you can use for emotional and physical healing, so don’t be afraid to take some time out to rest right now.
