What if the volatility of October’s Full Moon at 23 degrees Aries, that bumps up against Uranus (the planet of surprising and inspiring events) and squares Pluto (the planet of utter transformation and the busting up of old, worn-out systems), and Mars (the planet of reaching out for our desires), resulted in an explosion of LOVE?
Uranus’s energy pattern implores us to expand what we know. It inspires us to stretch beyond our current boundaries that may have once had their usefulness, but no longer serve our growth.
Uranus rules the zodiac Air sign of Aquarius, so if we consider those we know with Aquarian natures, we likely conjure out-of-the-box thinkers, who often seem to dwell in a world very different than most. Ingenuity is theirs, along with inspiration to see and create solutions that serve the whole of humanity. Now, imagine Uranus, with all of those qualities and impulses, in the innovative and survival-oriented sign of Aries. Uber-confident, fiery Aries is intent on paving new pathways for others to follow for the survival of self-identity, yes, but also, ultimately for the survival of its species. Surely, if we are to survive, the best of both expressions must be cultivated.
This Full Moon in Aries, on October 15th, Saturday night, at 10:23 pm MST, illuminates those paths, and invites us to open new doorways to opportunities beyond our imagination, individually and collectively. It squares Pluto in Capricorn, which is perfectly poised to draw our attention to the systems of power and control that need to crumble in order for new life to emerge and flourish. It would be hard to deny that our larger limiting systems of power and control are breaking down in the world. Fortunately, there is increased awareness and transparency of the abuses of power in our world, and many of us are responding to the call to reclaim it. The elevated aspects of Pluto in Capricorn lead us to the wisdom of harnessing the power to co-create our experience and our reality. There is no place for victim-consciousness or remaining stuck in a cycle of blame. Instead, the square in the sky between places power in our realm, and allows us to choose our way forward with our thoughts, words, and actions. Since Pluto is currently conjunct, or next to Mars in Capricorn, the square from the Full Moon amplifies the strong desire we may feel to bust through our limiting belief systems and the structures in the world that keep them intact. Mars may add to our sense of urgency and volatility at this time, so taking care to pause and connect to our collective desires – where everyone wins – aligns us with the wisdom and honorable nature of Capricorn.
Finally, the Sun in Libra, whose Light illuminates the Full Moon in Aries, must become part of the conversation. Libra: where the scales of balance are weighed; where Venus has her say and the Laws of Love and Harmony come into play; where beauty abides and everyone is valued equally and unequivocally, and we all win.
What if, as all of these cosmic energies arrange themselves, we choose to see their alignment for our greater good, and then focus on the abundant opportunities to
stretch, bend, and grow our collective heart?
It is here that I will meet you tomorrow night, sleeping in the glow of Libran light cast upon the Arian Moon, dreaming and co-creating a new path,
for the good of all relations…
With infinite blessings to all,
