The AstroMedium: Full Moon in Aries
This year has had its fair share of unique and powerful moments and as we approach Scorpio season, we have a full moon experience that could possibly be one of the most intense yet!
On October 20th, the moon in Aries makes an opposition to the sun in Libra pulling us between needing to focus on ourselves and our self-care and wanting to be with others and keep the peace.
The moon is not at home in the sign of Aries so the tension already starts out thick not to mention that the ruler of Aries, fiery Mars is in his opposite sign of Libra and at the time of this libation, the sun will join with Mars but the moon will oppose both of them, creating hyper-reactivity, hot tempers and impatience.
Anger and aggression are not a negative experience when channeled correctly as these emotional states help to push through more difficult feelings and expel excess energy which could contribute to irritability and anxiety.
However, this moon also has a depth that many of us are not prepared for but I feel this experience is not only needed but necessary to prepare us as we enter Scorpio season. Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio squares off with the sun, the moon and Mars making him the destabilizing force, stirring up deep psychological fears and a chance to do some serious shadow work.
This moon phase may bring out themes of control, forcing things to happen, unconscious behaviors that are keeping you from allowing more abundance and a Sextile from Jupiter offers loving support to create more positivity from whatever intensity comes up. Remember though, Pluto has the upper hand and before you can move into joy you must first let go of the old you or Pluto may cut your hand off in the process.
I AM MADE OF LOVE, NOT FEAR. AND I AM LETTING GO OF WHAT IS NO LONGER SERVING ME AS I RECEIVE MORE ABUNDANCE + JOY!
