One of life's great divides
All Full Moons involve some kind of conflict. Usually, as the Full Moon forms ... and for several nights following, you feel pulled in two directions at once, required to try and serve two masters ... no matter how impossible you know that is -- logically. Life's demands in two opposing / competing areas become equally insistent and intense.
They are always familiar. You've played this game before. Maybe you live with them constantly. (Were you born under a Full Moon? Do you have oppositions in your horoscope -- your Natal Chart? Do you have a partner, friend or important "other" -- lover, boss, parent, rival -- with planets in opposition to yours? Do planets in the sky now oppose a Natal Planet?) Full Moons reveal options you either didn't know about or didn't want to look at. Now ... you can't avoid them.
Full Moons are educational. They promote growth and insist on balance. You have to strike bargains with yourself and find compromises that let you take care of business and meet your responsibilities, even when priorities ... diverge.

The Moon in Astrology
* The Moon in General -- Your Inner Self of Feelings, Emotions and Intuition ---> Welcome to your inner world ---> In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs. It reflects our basic habits, instincts and automatic reactions. It speaks to some elements of our Karma and childhood home, our upbringing, family background and specifically our relationship with our mother (or major mother figure from the past.)
* Full Moon / New Moon? Or New Moon / Full Moon? -- Variations on the rhythms of life ---> Different rhythms ---> It's a subtle difference, I admit, but it's there nevertheless. Life's psychological rhythm has a different sequence, depending on whether the New Moon in a particular sign forms first, followed about two weeks later by the Full Moon in the opposite sign ... or whether the Full Moon forms first, followed then by the New Moon lining up with the Sun in its sign.
The Sun in Astrology
* The Sun in General -- Your Essential Self of Power, Will, Vitality and Ambition ---> The essence of you ---> In Astrology, The Sun represents your basic core identity.

From EDA: The Full Moon ---> Everyday Astrology ---> April 8, 2020 The Full Moon ---> Full Moons present choices. They highlight conflicts & prompt you to make decisions to bring two competing areas of life back into balance. There's really no right answer to handling such a request from a Full Moon with its different priorities & values. But it does encourage you to take conscious stock of your situation & decide whether it's appropriate to your needs ... whether it actually suits you.
