Hi Friends, it’s Luna!
The Aries Full Moon is upon us, and will be stirring up strong emotions over the coming days.
The Moon represents your psyche and ever-changing emotional landscapes.
During the Full Moon, your inner world becomes illuminated, causing your feelings and personal habits to become more visible.
Ideally, this is a time when you can engage and transform internal aspects of yourself, but if you’re not prepared, you can end up being dragged along on a wild, emotional ride.
This Full Moon is one you’re going to want to buckle up for. So, let’s take a deeper look and see what you can expect.
Finding The Courage To Take Risks
Do you remember when you were a child and believed you could fly? Can you think back to a time before you experienced the sting of failure or heartbreak, and were eager to explore the unknown without fear? This childlike wonder and bravery is Aries’ energy.
As the first sign of the zodiac, and a cardinal sign, Aries is an initiator who ventures boldly into new terrain and makes a path for everyone else to follow.
The Full Moon in Aries is conjunct Chiron, a minor planet representing our deepest wounds and ability to transmute them. Under this influence, an incident occurring on and around October 1st may cause you to feel intensely exposed and vulnerable. You may find yourself in a situation where you have no choice but to confront internalized discouragement from past painful experiences, especially if it has kept you from taking new emotional risks or forming new internal habits.
Whenever Chiron’s influence is present, you will attract situations where your deeply guarded hurts and sensitivities become unearthed. Pay attention to anything that makes you feel like crawling under a rock for the next few days. This is a squirmy, uncomfortable Full Moon, but if you can stomach the discomfort and lean into it, you’ll discover a precious opportunity to heal your emotional body and move forward with a renewed sense of confidence.
Inhibition often comes from a fear of rejection. The Arien way through emotional inhibition is to leap into the unknown, even if it means crashing and burning. Putting yourself out there can be scary, but doing so will create an vital outlet for your suppressed feelings and desires. Emotional courage not only promotes greater self acceptance, it allows others to connect with you in a deeper, more meaningful way.
If you have a habit of being overly self reliant out of fear of vulnerability, this Full Moon will magnetize situations where you can get in touch with your underlying discomfort and heal it. Opening up to others over the coming days may happen a bit awkwardly. Due to the influence of Uranus, you may almost accidentally, or somewhat suddenly, reveal a strange, raw, or unhealed dimension of yourself to another.
Are You Overreacting?
As if there wasn’t enough happening this Full Moon, Uranus will be sending an erratic beam of energy toward the Sun and Mercury. Expect communication between yourself and others to be sudden, bizarre, and surprising. You might take a stand for something you believe in and alienate others in the process. Try to keep in mind that your need for personal freedom could increase misunderstanding between yourself and others.
If you need to break free from an oppressive situation, this influence can help you find the energy to do so. However, if you suspect you may be reacting to your own inner turmoil, take a breath and wait to see if you still feel passionately about the issue at hand in a few days. It’s possible you may be missing a piece of vital information that will cause you to rethink your stance on the matter later.
Be sure to get enough sleep and be gentle with your nervous system right now. Avoid overstimulation, as this transit can cause you to feel mentally and energetically overwhelmed.
There are even more planetary forces to contend with this Full Moon, so you’re definitely going to want to take it easy, if possible.
Inner Tensions Reach A Breaking Point
To complicate matters further, a square between Mars and Saturn will amplify existing tension in the atmosphere. Your drive to move forward and pursue your desires may be curtailed in some way, resulting in intense friction and frustration. If you can focus your energy toward a dedicated, somewhat monotonous task, you may be able to transmute some of the charge.
Pluto and Mars will also be at odds, motivating you to push through, or even force your way past obstacles to achieve your objective. Try to disengage from power struggles and choose your battles wisely. At it’s best, Pluto square Mars can help you face your fears and move beyond your previous limitations.
Keep in mind, these influences can cause extreme behavior, and sometimes violence, so stay mindful and use your energy constructively.
A Way Forward
The combined influence of planetary forces this Full Moon has us poised for heightened sensitivity, conflict and arguments. Any clashes happening now may stir up acute, emotional pain from the past. Try to be gentle with yourself, and lay low if possible. If you’re feeling extra delicate or vulnerable, receiving energy healing, massage or talk therapy right now can be transformational.
You may feel compressed and provoked by the cosmos over the next few days. Stay grounded and disengage from conflict whenever you can. Alone time in nature or at home can provide a peaceful environment to explore the emotional vulnerabilities or inner tensions that may arise.
Above all, remember, challenging planetary transits like this Full Moon happen for us, not to us. Do your best to keep an open mind and heart as you observe what comes up for you over the coming days.
You’ve got this!
