There's A Full Moon in fiery Aries on September 29, 2023 at 10:57 pm GMT.
A full moon in the sign of Aries represents a contrast to the current sun in libra, whilst Libra is represented with balancing scales - ie seeking harmony, sometimes at the detriment of ones self; Aries is the total opposite & is bursting on to the scene, encouraging you to prioritise number one.
A key theme & question this full moon is asking us is how can you find balance between the I & the we, the self and the other?
Full moons are moments of magnification, & the Aries full moon promises a sense of culmination & new opportunity. If you’ve been pushing emotions down or ignoring how certain situations or people make you feel, be ready for a possibly volatile eruption to the surface.
The final full moon before eclipse season, this is a time for release, reassessing & realisation. With a heavy emphasis on the past, it’s time to look at who you are now, has this changed even in the last six months since you set your intentions with the New Moon in Aries?
Are you living in alignment with who you really are & prioritising what’s important to you?
Now is the time to really challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone and move forward with something that you may have been too scared to before.
Main take aways to ponder
- It's time to stop people pleasing to the detriment of yourself.
- Recognise what in your life is draining & depleting and spend more energy on what you find restorative or energising. (Think about your relationships & interactions with others with regards to this too).
- Are you living authentically and in truth to the real you? It's time to take back your power & find/ follow your purpose.
- Meditate & try to connect to your intuition and inner wisdom, if you're not sure where to begin - pull out a pen & paper & see what comes up for you as you let the pen flow with the journal prompts below.
Tarot for the Collective
I have pulled a tarot card for the collective to help us enquire further into this energy.
The card I have pulled is Death, signifying
Endings . Change . Opportunity . Letting Go . Transition . Transformation
Although the Death card is probably the most feared and misunderstood of all the cards in the Tarot deck, it can actually be one of the most positive cards in the deck & I really feel it has a strong connecting message to the astrology of the moment. Read through the description below from www.biddytarot.com and see how this aligns with the message coming though at this time to further enquire into your journaling & mediation.
"After a period of pause and reflection with The Hanged Man, the Death card symbolizes the end of a major phase or aspect of your life that you realize is no longer serving you, opening up the possibility of something far more valuable and essential. You must close one door to open another. You need to put the past behind you and part ways, ready to embrace new opportunities and possibilities. It may be difficult to let go of the past, but you will soon see its importance and the promise of renewal and transformation. If you resist these necessary endings, you may experience pain, both emotionally and physically, but if you exercise your imagination and visualize a new possibility, you allow more constructive patterns to emerge.
Similarly, Death shows a time of significant transformation, change, and transition. You need to transform yourself and clear away the old to bring in the new. Any change should be welcomed as a positive, cleansing, transformational force in your life. The death and clearing away of limiting factors can open the door to a broader, more satisfying experience of life.
The Death card has elements of a sudden and unexpected change. Death happens to everyone, no matter who you are, how much money you have, where you live, or what color your skin is; it is the same with a significant change. So, the Death card can be a sign you may feel as though you are caught in the path of sweeping change and cannot escape its effects (especially if accompanied by The Tower or The Hanged Man). Although the upheaval may seem unwanted and painful, this massive change could bring with it a series of unexpected surprises that create new opportunities and advantages for you.
