Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces, such as work versus home or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures, leading to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts peak at a Full Moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an honest and balanced look at your relationships, and you will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Full Moon quincunx Uranus creates tension, anxiety, instability and uncertainty. It gives the urge to break free from restrictions; for liberating change and excitement. Odd behavior from a loved one could make you feel insecure. Rapid mood swings, emotional outbursts or accidents are possible.
You could meet someone new who is usual, eccentric or exciting. Instant attraction is possible, but a new relationship could disrupt your normal routine or upset an existing relationship. An adjustment in a tense relationship may be needed to correct a karmic imbalance.
Sudden changes and unexpected events may present exciting opportunities if you remain open-minded and flexible. But give yourself time to adjust and avoid impulsive actions. Try to channel this electric, unstable energy into creativity, invention, innovation, and social or political activism. Occult work or meditation could lead to epiphanies and mystical experiences.
The Full Moon opposite Chiron may expose a deep emotional wound from your past that you have difficulty coming to terms with. The pain may be related to your relationship with a parent, an accident, a disability, or being victimized, bullied, rejected, abandoned or misunderstood.
You may attract people and situations which reflect or aggravate your pain, and you may become more sensitive to emotional reactions from others. Perhaps you will need to look after another wounded person at the expense of yourself. In addition, Chiron may cause pain from a new wound.
The lesson is to face the pain and balance your needs with the needs of others. Developing and learning to trust your intuition will help you deal with any emotional pain and help you avoid it in the future. Healing can also come through astrology and natural therapies. Once you learn to rise above your pain, you can better understand and help others.
An Irritation Triangle aspect pattern creates constant inner tension, and relaxation is almost impossible. This energy rarely comes to a halt and is constantly recharging itself.  In the Full Moon April 2023 astrology chart below, an Irritation Triangle connects the Moon, Sun-Chiron and Uranus.
This triangle makes you continually look for new possibilities, know more, achieve something and reach goals. But hectic overexertion and a rigid attitude bring permanent unease and nervousness.
Pushing yourself too hard could lead to a breakdown or a sudden outburst of anger. Thankfully, this configuration provides flexibility and adaption to be evasive and quickly compensate for the damage caused or hurt feelings.
With no harmonious blue aspects in the Irritation Triangle, there is no opportunity for resolution and relaxation. Your efforts may be fruitless, leading to a desperate longing and a permanent communication process. Thankfully, Mercury comes to the rescue.
Mercury sextile Mars helps you put your thoughts and plans into action. You will feel driven to succeed at something with a strong sense of purpose and initiative. You can quickly achieve much work with the courage and fighting spirit to take on almost anything.
Mercury sextile Saturn brings clear thinking, good judgment, and organization skills. These acute mental skills are matched by open and honest communication to resolve conflicts. It is ideal for business dealings signing contracts, and negotiating. With common sense and practicality, you can confidently make long-term plans for the future.
Mars trine Saturn gives you the strength, ambition, and perseverance to take on the hardest of tasks and complete them on time, on budget, and with perfection. You will find the most efficient way to get the job done. With patience and self-discipline, you can accomplish something you are passionate about, leading to a significant and enduring achievement.
Full Moon April 2023 (16°07′ Libra) is conjunct with asteroid America (15°35′ Libra). This asteroid, numbered 916, was named after the United States of America. Alex Miller found it “useful in describing events important to the country,” especially economic conditions. He said it affects the “mood of the American populace.” 
So under the influence of the Moon, which rules emotions and the general public, the Full Moon in April 2023 astrology should significantly affect America.
The April 6 Full Moon is the last Moon phase in an eclipse cycle that began with the October 2022 Solar Eclipse. As the previous eclipse cycle nears its end, the issues it brought up increasingly look for completion.
The October 2022 Solar Eclipse quincunx Jupiter is causing a struggle to overcome some uncertainty or crisis related to love, money, and your happiness and satisfaction. Important decisions are needed about what makes you truly happy and content. Are adjustments to your budget required to cope with economic downturns and the rising cost of living?
The November 2022 Lunar Eclipse conjunct Uranus brings the risk of unexpected setbacks and difficult changes that bring confusion and uncertainty about the future, particularly fears of a recession. Patience, flexibility and open-mindedness are needed to adapt to rapidly changing conditions.
FULL MOON APRIL 2023 MEANING
The Full Moon on April 6, 2023, quincunx Uranus gives an urge for liberating change but creates tension and uncertainty that can lead to impulsive actions and emotional outbursts. Flexibility and an open mind are needed to adapt to unexpected change, which becomes critical with the previous lunar eclipse conjunct Uranus.
The opposition to Chiron indicates wounding or the need to heal a deep emotional wound from the past. The irritating aspect pattern increases the tension and the risk of sudden outbursts of anger and more wounding.
Although the disruptive Full Moon aspects are the most significant, Mercury is well-placed for communication to solve problems. Mercury at the midpoint of Mars trine Saturn can be harnessed to relieve tension, calm things down, find practical solutions and work hard on achieving your long-term goals.
The United States
Full Moon April 2023, aligned with asteroid America, exposes the United States’ deep wounds, such as economic inequality, gun violence, racism and extreme political polarity. The country is particularly susceptible to instability and wounding that could manifest as civil unrest, violence and other unexpected or shocking events. The previous eclipses reaching their conclusion increase economic uncertainty and the risk of recession.
Astrologically, a full moon is influenced by the preceding New Moon. The March 21 New Moon brings the potential for irritation, anger and ego conflicts. But it also gives single-mindedness, drive and determination to solve such problems and restore harmony.
Finally, the influence of the April 6 Full Moon lasts two weeks up to the April 20 Solar Eclipse. This waning moon phase is good for releasing, letting go, resting, healing, regenerating, contemplating, meditating, decluttering, harvesting, pruning, and hair-cutting.
