Connecting with October’s Full Moon in Aries – and the Best of Ourselves ~

When any of the four cardinal signs of the zodiac (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn) are activated, we’re shown issues around our identity and expression. Tomorrow’s Full Moon at 20 degrees Aries, at 3:08 pm MDT, amplifies this area for us as it highlights all four of the cardinal signs with a Grand Cross or Square.

The Full Moon in Aries opposes the Sun in Libra and they square the North Lunar Node in Cancer, and Saturn, Pluto, and the South Lunar Node in Capricorn. 

Simply put, cardinal energies require and call for expression, and tomorrow’s celestial arrangement implores us to balance all four points of this Grand Cross.

  • Aries wants us to express our selves.
  • Libra wants us to express balance and harmony in our relationships with others.
  • Cancer wants us to express our emotional needs – while feeling secure enough to do so.
  • Capricorn wants us to express our personal responsibility and wisdom.

With the Sun in Venus-ruled Libra and the Full Moon in Mars-ruled Aries, balancing all four of these areas in our lives is the key to discovering and embodying peace and harmony. Libra reminds us that really are in this life experience together, despite situations or encounters that may make us lean toward judgment, isolation, and separation.

The spruce that is surrounded by aspens is not alone.
In fact, the entire forest is stronger for their connection.

At its core, astrology is about polarities and relationships. Having the courage to make the journey to the center point of any polarities or aspects at play allows us to embrace the best of each celestial body and the zodiac sign it is traveling through at the time.

If the best of our strong, self-confident, and courageous Aries self could meet our peaceful, balanced, and cooperative Libra self, we’d realize that we can be both empowered and harmonious. And, if our infantile, sensitive, and emotional Cancer self could meet our older, wiser, and responsible Capricorn self, we’d see that we’re both secure and unstoppable.

If we stay too long in any one expression of these signs, we’ll likely notice and feel mounting tension – and we’ll probably experience recurring patterns of behavior that reinforce the imbalance. 

I believe this is why the celestial bodies form patterns like the one that tomorrow’s Full Moon brings…so that we are encouraged to wake up and breakthrough habitual ruts. So that we can move to the center point of all of the axis points of our lives, and know the peace that abides there.

  • Aries/Libra = I am/We are
  • Cancer/Capricorn = I Feel/I Use
  • Taurus/Scorpio = I Have/I Desire
  • Leo/Aquarius = I Will/I Know
  • Gemini/Sagittarius = I Think/I See
  • Virgo/Pisces = I Serve/I Believe

Most of us get that Full Moons tend to intensify things…emotions heighten, and people can express less than their best selves. The Full Moon on October 13, 2019 is no exception.

One tool to help us move to the safe and balanced place on the Aries/Libra and Cancer/Capricorn axis is to create space in our lives. Then, we can consider the quality
of that space.

~ What if we created space with our breath and infused it with the quality of love?

~ What if we created space with our thoughts and infused it with the quality of choice?

~ What if we created space with our presence and infused it with the qualities of joy and
gratitude?

Another gift of this Full Moon is that it forms a flowing fiery trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius while the Sun in Libra forms a cooperative sextile to Jupiter. Tapping into creativity that lifts our perceptions to higher ground is supported by this celestial arrangement. Embracing the expansive light-heartedness of these energies will lighten any intensity that bogs us down.

Here’s to shining the Full Moon’s light on the center-point of our personal and collective Grand Cross and radiating it with celestial love and conviction – and having FUN in the process!
With great love and blessings, for all relations ~
