Simone Pinkhasova is our new contributor joining us to share her astrology wisdom for our 30-Day Yoga Challenge Into the Stars!
Born in Serbia, Simone immigrated to Canada with her family when she was a child. She grew up outside of Barrier Lake, Alberta, where she spent hours swimming and studying the stars. Mystified by the cosmos, mythology, and astrology, Simone’s passion for stargazing flourished into a career reading the planets and their relationship to worldly events. She enjoys frothy Horchatas, lilies, and dangly earrings. Her favorite constellation is Cassiopeia, named for the Greek queen who bragged about her beauty until she was banished to the sky. Cassiopeia was the first star cluster Simone recognized, owing to how easy it is to see in fall and spring. As she becomes more near-sighted with age, Cassiopeia might be one of the last constellations Simone will perceive.

Your Astrology Report for the Full Moon in Libra
with Simone Pinkhasova
This weekend, we have a full moon crossing with a void-of-course moon on Saturday, March 27th.
A full moon is when the moon is in direct opposition to the sun. Full moons represent a polarity and the opportunity to attune to how we feel and clarify what we hope to culminate. We experience full moons once a month, whereas we experience void-of-course moons several times a month for varying periods.
A void-of-course moon is when the moon shifts from one zodiac sign into the next sign. Each of the zodiac signs have unique aspects, energies, and emotions; when we’re in a particular zodiac, we’re more prone to that sign’s emotional/energetic influences.
The transition during a void-of-course moon is similar to the feeling of returning home after an extended vacation; the return is painful, and yet we’re grateful to be home. The void-of-course moon represents a period of limbo between two signs and is NOT the time to be making big decisions until we’ve fully transitioned into the next sign.
Understanding the moon cycles is relevant as the moon symbolizes our emotional center—aligning with the moon’s rhythms may allow us to connect to a more profound expression of how we feel to create more ease, engagement, and self-awareness.
That said, this weekend is not the time to set goals, review intentions, or start new projects, specifically during the void-of-course moon on March 27th from 4:47 PM – 10:22 PM PST.
Full Moon in Libra
This weekend, make space to explore:
The shift from the void moon to the full moon in Libra occurs on Sunday, March 28th, which means we’re wrapping up the month swaddled in cashmere and lace. Libras are the Queens of Astrology. No sign compares with the simple elegance of a Libra in aesthetic taste and charm. Libra understands the need for order and balance and uses their intelligence to create harmony wherever they go—leaving the tantalizing aroma of whatever expensive perfume they’re wearing and benevolence for passersby.
We’re all treated to the simple graces of Libra on Sunday’s full moon. This weekend, take a moment to celebrate by sending well wishes to others, indulging in simple pleasures, appreciating beauty, and sharing good food and conversation with those you love! This weekend is not the time to dwell on, over-analyze, or examine your career, finances, or relationships. Libra’s energy asks us to pause and enjoy what we’ve created this past month, with a gentle and kind attitude towards ourselves and others.
Because the full moon in Libra wants everyone to enjoy the feel-good vibes, and the void moon puts everything major on-hold, we’ve selected a yoga & meditation class for the zodiacs that will leave each sign feeling refreshed, supported, and content.
The Month Ahead
April is greatly influenced by the planets Mercury and Venus. Mercury is the smallest planet and moves very quickly; it presides over Gemini and Virgo and symbolizes the winged messenger in Greek Mythology. Mercury represents communication, youth, and the ability to coordinate and assimilate information.
Venus is the planet of pleasure, governing adoration and beauty. Akin to the Roman goddess of love, Venus is all about grace, relationships, and aesthetic indulgences. Venus presides over Libra and Taurus and asks us to seek balance and harmony in all aspects of our lives, including material and metaphysical possessions.
On April 12th, we shift into the New Moon under Aries, a fire sign known for passion, determination, confidence, and fearless love.
The New Moon in Aries may invoke a playful burst of energy to direct into new projects with family and friends. April is a time to be surrounded by loved ones and spring clean the home. Invest your time in those around you and the environments you embody; embrace the tedium of decluttering your closet or organizing bookshelves. Call your parents or grandparents, take your kids to the park, or make a meal at home with friends.
April’s laid-back and loving energy invites us to focus on our health, specifically, the nervous and digestive systems. Get lots of sleep and rest, do grounding activities such as yoga, meditation, go for long walks or jogs in nature, and eat nourishing foods. Spring is the season of rebirth and renewal. We’re welcomed by longer days and bright mornings to draw us from hibernation.
Creating a daily ritual may help guide you through the flux we feel whenever we undergo a transition, be it the seasons or other life experiences. A morning routine of exercise, meditation, journaling, or something of the like, provides a grounding method to establish a new habit as we move into spring.
The latter half of April treats us to the Lyrid Meteor Shower on April 22/23rd. The Lyrids start on April 16th and peak around the 22nd. The best time to watch the shower is between midnight and dawn; grab a friend or family member and some snacks and zesty beverages to stay awake!
Next month, indulge in low-key activities:

Yoga & Meditation Classes for Each Zodiac Sign
Plan your weekend accordingly; choose a yoga class, meditation, and music based on your sign’s element.
| FIRE SIGNS |
Aries. Leo. Sagittarius.
This weekend, keep the fire burning at a temperature you can sustain. Libra’s energy asks that you balance your natural tendency for intensity with activities and people who help you take things down a notch.
Use this weekend to connect to Libra’s compromising nature. If there’s a dispute or a conflict you’re holding on to like a hot coal, now is the time to put it down.
Balance your need to be seen and heard with the requests of those around you. We know you like to be the one in charge, but allow yourself to open to receive others to resolve conflicts and unnecessary drama.
Your weekend yoga schedule:
Fire signs have a lot to burn before they can chill out, which is why Revolved Triangle is the perfect yoga class. Lunges, twists, and lots of core work bring the HEAT, so you feel the burn, baby!
Follow your yoga class with Ocean Meditation, and make sure to drink lots of water throughout the day.
It’s all about the playlist; Clara created a special hip-hop playlist featuring Jay-Z for class, so check out Revolved Triangle playlist on Spotify.
April Forecast for Fire Signs
Aries ♈️ It’s your month, celebrate long and large with those you love. Create a routine you can sustain; find an app to track your progress or a buddy to check-in with to stay motivated.
Leo ♌️ Release disagreements with friends or colleagues. Let go of being the one in charge and see how you can work toward compromise.
Sagittarius ♐️ An abundance of social activities keeps your mood elevated and activity level strong. Balance feelings of restlessness with grounding activities you can do in solitude, such as reading or meditation.
| AIR SIGNS |
Gemini. Libra. Aquarius.
It’s your weekend, Air signs! You’re always ready for a weekend of intimate conversations with friends and developing social dynamics.
Treat someone you care about to a nice meal; as we transition from Virgo into Libra’s graces, we discover our natural tendency to come into relationships with others and recognize how each relationship affects who we are in the world.
Remember, not everyone is as naturally inclined as you in making space for others, so take a step back to do a little self-care if you need it before venturing out into your vast social networks!
Your weekend yoga schedule:
Sweet, darling air signs can indulge in spaciousness and play in For the Love of Krishna. This deep back bending class includes a little bit of mantra, core strengthening, side waist lengthening, and a special Spotify playlist to instill good vibes.
Our suggestion is to bookend the day with yoga classes; open with For the Love of Krishna, and close your day with Hatha class, Tethered to Earth.
This Hatha session will help air signs ground and come down from the day-long high they’ve enjoyed.
April Forecast for Air Signs
Gemini ♊️ You’re vibing high this month with more and more opportunities to reconnect with friends. How can you use the information you gather for the greater good? Is there a way for you to hone-in on your ability to assimilate information and cast a wider net?
Libra ♎️ Your usual methods to come back to balance are disrupted this month when you overcommit. Use this time to rekindle your relationship with yourself, and see where you might be more decisive.
Aquarius ♒️ You’re in the mood to travel or relocate; press pause and examine all the ways you can escape within the comfort of your home. Call a relative who lives in a different area and exchange stories to inspire a shift in perspective.
| EARTH SIGNS |
Taurus. Virgo. Capricorn.
We shift out of the Virgo moon this weekend, so our earth signs will be a little disdainful toward having to pause their personal projects. Libra’s energy is more receptive and responsive, which means putting all individual achievement on-hold for a hot minute.
Earth signs might open to receive the fair-minded focus of Libra energy by creating plans and projects with friends or family members. See what collaborative spaces you can work in and who you may be able to partner with; Libra reminds us to explore relationships as a portal to see more of ourselves.
On Saturday, the void moon is a great time for earth signs to step back, pause, and reconnect with the people and places they find grounding before.
Your weekend yoga schedule:
Chances are, the earth signs have a favorite class on repeat they’ll want to tune into before honing in on the full moon to optimize their chances for opportunity and inspiration.
An Offering is the best class to keep these signs anchored in the present with the option to dedicate something beyond the aspirations of the self. The Spotify playlist for this class is steady and grounding for our dear earth signs to feel nourished.
Follow your yoga session with the Lakshmi Mantra to sow the seeds of abundance and beauty.
April Forecast for Earth Signs
Taurus ♉️ Your home life feels unstable, which is upsetting to manage. Get outside and explore nature to rediscover the quiet you have within yourself. Discover new ways to adapt and re-create your environment.
Virgo ♍️ You may be faced with a decision that’s disruptive and may cause you to act rashly. Focus on compassion and how to forgive yourself and others. Meditation is a must.
Capricorn ♑️ Spring blossoms with new routines, which is as exciting as it is unsettling. Remember to slow down and see the bigger picture; one foot in front of the other will eventually guide you to your desired destination.
| WATER SIGNS |
Cancer. Scorpio. Pisces
Water signs relish moments to explore the whims and fancies of those they love, so this weekend will be a treat for our Cancers, Scorpios, and Pisces.
Full moons are periods of heightened emotions and expectations, and this weekend’s full moon in Libra will crack open any lingering emotions around relationships and romance, so be prepared to confront the people involved.
The sensitive and nurturing attitudes of water signs thrive under Libra’s harmonious and benevolent attitude. Be careful of overdoing it with those you love this weekend, as it’s not uncommon for our water signs to get a little carried away with the romance!
Your weekend yoga schedule:
Self-care with time to indulge and follow one’s passion could be the mantra for water signs.
Follow this class with the Shiva Mantra & Meditation to let whatever you’ve been holding go and move with more flow.
April Forecast for Water Signs
Cancer ♋️ Reviving your community is at the forefront for you this month. Spread the information you know to be true and support those who share your values. Evaluate the traditions you no longer wish to preserve. Trust your process, no matter how obscure it may feel.
Scorpio ♏️ Things will get worse before they get better; use your intensity to focus on what matters most. Tensions erupt that are out of your control. Learn how to be with your discomfort.
Pisces ♓️ Your values are tested and your vision of what you wanted is blurry. Dig deep to rediscover your faith. Maintain your physical health with outdoor activities, breathe the fresh air to inspire and invigorate.
I look forward to seeing you next month for April’s Full Moon Reading!
