Full Moon in Aries at 16 degrees, 9th October 2022. Storm Rider!
The energy of the Full Moon in Aries is positive, uplifting and fearless. It is a fire starter. We are Re-igniting, Re-setting, Re-starting!
The pure vitality of the Full Moon in the fire sign of Aries expands our inspiration, optimism and courage.
Aries is the courageous warrior who has a strong sense of freedom and individuality, therefore making any constraints or limitation feel unbearable. We will effortlessly be able to ride the storm that has been brewing since the beginning of September and culminates in October, as Saturn and Uranus make a last challenging square until 2044.
There is a chance for a radical shift in perception and a need to break out of old ways and patterns of behavior.
The month of October is a drama filled month, but also one that has the potential to allow us to reach new heights in love, as Venus in Libra meets with the the Sun in Libra on the 22nd October. This is called a Superior conjunction that forma a Venus star point with the sun, that although takes place every eight years, hasn’t happened in Libra, its own sign of love and relationships since 1771 !
The effects of which we are already feeling, as Venus gets closer to the Sun in Libra. This rare alignment signifies a huge karmic shift for the better in all of our relationships, allowing more love, harmony and abundance into our lives.
Helping us further to ride the storm of change with ease, is a wonderful Grand Air Trine that includes Venus in Libra, Mars in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius, helping us to turn any challenges we may face to our advantage.
“The eagle does not escape the storm, it simply uses the storm to lift it higher. In fact, it rises on the very winds that bring the storm”-Lois Evans
October and November are a time of culmination and radical shifts as we are within the eclipse window, the first of which takes place on the 25th October, a solar eclipse in Scorpio and the second on the 8th November, a lunar eclipse in Taurus. Both involve the karmic north nodes and its a major shift away from the drama of the south node in Scorpio to finding greater peace within our lives represented by the north node in Taurus.
Resistance to change is futile, change is inevitable but transformation is by choice.
Both Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus are currently at 18 degrees in a challenging square, the last that will take place until 2044! This is a revolutionary aspect that began at the beginning of 2021, causing seismic shifts personally and collectively, that we will especially strongly feel in October and whose effect will lessen in November when the storm begins to shift into calm.
The fact that Saturn in Aquarius also takes part in the Grand Air Trine is a sign of great hope that the Saturn-Uranus square will culminate in results that lead to greater peace, fairness and harmony, personally and collectively. This is especially heartening when we consider the current world wide conflicts. It also allows as to take heart that any difficulties we currently face, will more than likely find a positive outcome.
Everything is possible this month, big shifts, big love, big change and big opportunities! We just need to be flexible and courageous enough to let the change happen.
Its a karmic time for lovers as we are in the Eclipse season and Venus in Libra will meet in the heart of the sun in this rare alignment on the 22nd October.
This superior conjunction (When Venus was direct and at its strongest) last took place in Libra in 1771, since then, they have been in Scorpio. This and the south node in Scorpio and the coming eclipses in Scorpio/Taurus is a further sign that we are moving away from drama to greater peace and harmony.
Its a renewal of our hearts, burning away old dysfunctional patterns (perhaps since life times) expanding our heart energy.
It means we can upgrade all of our relationships, its time for each and everyone of us to step up and evolve out of our stuck emotional patterns as the eclipses and the revolutionary energies of the Saturn-Uranus square brings everything to a culmination, especially concerning events that have taken place since the beginning of 2021. We have a unique chance to raise our vibration, heal our karmic relationships and to evolve in Love. We are being asked to mature and redefine what love of self and others really means and to take responsibility for our actions.
Personally and collectively its a chance for a complete reset for greater balance, peace and harmony.
We can attract now, what we seek.
The power of this combination is formidable and promotes rapid growth and evolution. When we harness and give this energy focused direction, we can make real progress, have renewed optimism and perhaps most importantly of all, faith and belief in our potential to set and reach our goals.
The increased creative energy will help expand our powers of attraction through an increased magnetic power of thought and visualization as Pluto turns direct just one day before the Full Moon in Aries.
Pluto rules evolution and transformation, the very essence and meaning of life. Everything is made up of energy, of movement. Nothing is static in this world, not even the universe. Everything is in a state of perpetual motion and expansion. We will effortlessly be able to flow with the magic of transformation in our lives instead of resisting change.
The fire sign of Aries is the archetype of the Warrior hero taking action. With the Full Moon in Aries, we become activated to overcome challenges and to initiate the new, through courage, enthusiasm, and leadership.
Our deeper passions and emotions have been awakened, and we will be looking for authenticity and deeper meaning in every aspect of our lives. Superficiality just won’t do as Pluto turns direct.
Chiron in Aries conjoined to the Full Moon, helps to heal any feelings of lack of self-confidence, self-worth and that we are not “enough”.
Are we trying to keep the peace at all costs and people-pleasing? Forfeiting our authenticity, personal growth and empowerment? Whatever is standing in your way of personal growth will become apparent now.
We are starving ourselves of love when we think we have to “win” Love from others.
Learn to “create “ your own love for yourself and give yourself the love that you so freely give to others.
“May we stop seeing ourselves through the eyes of people who never saw us” – Shane Streel
Changes that we have been resisting out of fear or because we were putting others first, worrying what others may think while trying to fulfill their idea of how we should be, will no longer have power over us.
Any issues of insecurities and self-esteem can get a major boost of confidence right now.
It’s time to take action and speak your mind with passion.The Full Moon in Aries will help you to assert your leadership and entrepreneur qualities, to take charge instead of being passive. Pioneering and daring, you no longer have to wait for permission or validation from others.
We can rediscover excitement in our lives. What excites and motivates you?
“Respond to every call that excites your spirit”–Rumi
The sign of Aries has a deep faith in their invincible strength within and their ability to overcome any challenge. We too can once again renew our faith in our inner strength and know that there is something inside of us that is greater than any obstacle.
We need to take that leap of faith.
Fear is the opposite of faith, but they both require that you believe in something that you have not seen. Which one will you choose?
“One new perception, one fresh thought, one act of surrender, one change of heart, one leap of faith, can change your life forever.”-Robert Holden
The Full Moon in the fire sign of Aries re-ignites the passion within our souls so that you can prioritize what’s really important to you in your life.
Our dreams are just within reach, we have a real sense now of the infinite possibilities and new horizons that lie ahead of us so that we can create vitality for initiating new cycles of experience and to lose our fear. Letting go of the negative stories that we tell ourselves, limiting our true potential.
Life will begin to move faster, what you have been working so hard for, will begin to take root and show fruition.
The Month of October is all about expanding out of and breaking free from your limitations. Living out your true hearts desires and purpose that are on the other side of fear.
“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else´s hands, but not you.” —Jim Rohn
