On October 9th/10th, there is a Full Moon at 16 degrees Aries, a fire sign ruled by Mars. A fiery energy fuelled by Chiron, Pluto, Black Moon Lilith, and soothed by Venus.
This Full Moon in Aries has the Sun in the sign of Libra (relationships, balance and harmony) and the Moon in Aries (personal will, courage and assertiveness), and it asks to look at how you relate to others and whether you are losing yourself in the process.
If Full moons are a time of emotional climax when raw emotions are likely to come up, this one in Aries will be particularly passionate and intense.
Chiron, the wounded healer, joins the Moon in Aries, so old wounds and deep fears (thanks to a square with Pluto) are likely to come up.
Black Moon Lilith (our repressed, raw and dark feminine) will be in the Moon-ruled sign of Cancer, making a connection (square) with the Full Moon – more emotional intensity and repressed feelings coming to light.
All this is in the context of relationships (Sun in Libra).
We all carry wounds, fears and toxic experiences. It make us say and behave in ways that are not always in line with our best selves. And that is ok. That is when we need to practice self-forgiveness, compassion and self-love – to ditch the knives for the silver spoon.
Start feeding yourself love with a silver spoon. And to start knowing what it feels like. Then you’ll know if others are coming with a silver spoon or a knife to feed you.
That is Venus’s work, and she will be conjunct the Sun in Libra during this Full Moon in Aries. She will bring healing and love energy to help you do the work.
What to do if you feel overwhelmed to react emotionally?
Breath. Calm yourself. Stop yourself and breathe. Put words to what is coming up: through journalling, talking to a friend or going for a walk to clear your head.
Once you gain clarity, you have a choice of what to do and how to respond to whatever is coming up.
Speak up with assertiveness and clarity.
This Full Moon in Aries might bring to completion some issues from the New Moon in Aries on April 1st. What was happening then?
Use the next couple of weeks to work through fears you need to release and let go of in preparation for the upcoming New Moon in Scorpio (Solar Eclipse).
You have the power to do that and more.
With love and care,
