Moon Full in Aries24 Sep 2018, by moon&sky in
Welcome Moon Full (exact @ 1952 PDT) in Aries
… strength, courage, healing
It’s just two days past Equinox. In the South it’s a time to sow seeds; in the North it’s harvest time. This Moon reminds us that we reap what we sow. There is some tension in the air (oppositions & T-squares) which provides both challenge and opportunity. Like in the tale of two Wolves – one angry, fierce and looking to fight; the other sad, loving and seeking harmony and peace – this Moon also reminds us that it is up to us to choose what we feed. Overall, north or south, this is a Healing Moon (Chiron influence).
The need for balance and equilibrium is strong (equinox season + Sun now in Libra). Some intense, challenging energies (esp cardinal T-square involving Sun, Moon, Saturn, Chiron, and Mercury) put increased pressure on our need for balance, and help us move into feeling and healing. The energy heightens our emotions; may increase feelings of vulnerability; and tests our strength, integrity, self-love and self-confidence. It pushes us to face our fears (Sun/Moon Square Saturn & Saturn-Uranus trine), heal our wounded parts (Moon-Chiron), break through inhibitions (Uranus), firm-up our boundaries (Saturn), and more strongly make our stand.
Aries loves the challenge. Moon-full in Aries shines the light on what does and doesn’t work; reveals where action needs to be taken; and helps us make critical decisions. This is a time to align heart and mind. A time to take a long-term view. A time to go slow, be thorough and attend to details (Moon/Merc-Saturn square). Time to listen to inner wisdom and to Spirit/Soul. Time to focus on what is most sacred. Time to honor our creations and step into the Light of our radiant selves.
At this turning of the cosmic wheel
all that was hidden is now revealed
Whatever may have evoked our tears
it’s time to release both pain and fears
Time to align heart and mind
Let them now become entwined
Time to honor the wisdom of your heart
and all that’s expressed by your sacred arts
Take your stand, strong, bold and true
Embrace the radiant you
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
Wishing you the loving embrace of strength, truth and wisdom this Moon
