FULL MOON in ARIES
October 5th, 2017
This Full Moon, in Warrior Aries, casts a spotlight on how others influence our lives, our relationships, our role within the collective and as individuals. It may feel as if we are at a crossroads, in a position where achieving a compromise is near impossible. In turn, emotionally charged debates will ensue creating a sense that a definite winner must emerge and someone or something must wear the loser’s crown.
Pluto’s harsh angle to the Sun and Moon reminds (or strong arms) us to deeply consider the costs, the potential consequences of the outcome we are rooting for. It’s important to note that Pluto often incites change of the permanent variety, transformations of the inner self and causes cold hard (sometimes painful) truths to emerge. Pairing that with the vibrant fiery energies of Aries and a desperate need for resolution under a Libran Sun and we truly have something to think about. In fact, as Venus and Mars join forces in Virgo, the desire to figure this out will be strong.
On a positive note, there is a great deal of courage that will be awakened as Lunar vibes reach a peak on the 5th. Still, an undeniable urge to step up to the plate can produce either a certain queasiness or ramp up a ridiculous amount of confidence. It’s also possible that, before you realize where you are standing, (perhaps you’re stunned or mentally stuck on the spot) there won’t be much choice but to take a full swing. So then, does it matter whether you are doing it for personal glory or for the team if you bat it out of the park? And exactly which side, in the grand scheme, stands to gain or suffer a loss.
