INSPIRATION & INDEPENDENCE

FULL MOON @ 2 DEGREES ARIES
Monday, September 24/ Tuesday, September 23
 7:53 p.m. PT/10:53 p.m. EDT/2:53 a.m. UTC
  • Conjunct asteroid Hygiea & Chiron
  • Square Saturn & Vesta
  • Sextile Mars

 

Keywords & Themes: Inspiration, healing, wholeness, protector, authority of self, momentum, ambition, leadership, will, independence, self-sufficiency, overcoming fears, action-oriented, purpose & legacy, unconscious dominating, anger management or suppression, motivation.

 

Collective Energies:

Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, keeps things moving and beckons us into taking action. Invite the Aries full moon by honoring your independence and inspiration through passion projects or setting new goals. Lead with your will and this moon may serve you well.

And while all of this may sound great at first, the shadow side can be impatience, easily annoyed, or compulsive (says the natal Aries Moon). Watch out for a bit of emotional avoidance, Aries doesn’t have time to feel things. This in-charge sign activates our inner warrior and passion so be prepared for a bit of agitation or competition even if you lean towards conflict avoidance. Though my favorite Aries superpower is its ability to maintain momentum when things may feel stuck, where Saturn could be the culprit.

Perhaps the more difficult aspect of this full moon is the square with Saturn and Vesta. When Saturn hangs out with the moon we navigate themes of security, scarcity, or responsibility. Things may feel heavier than they actually are so don’t be surprised if some sadness or depression creeps in. Though the upside (even if Saturn doesn’t want one), is patience and a balancing to the extreme movement of Aries. Saturn also feels comfortable being alone and Aries loves being independent, so you may enjoy the possibility of becoming introverted to get realigned with your commitments. 

This full moon hangs out in conjunction with the healers of the solar system, Chiron and the asteroid Hygiea. When these two meet, the same degree nonetheless, we come into contact with our health and places where we crave more healing. With this aspect to the full moon we remember the restraints of our bodies and the care they need for us to reach our ultimate goals and visions.

Pay attention to where you experience momentum and excitement in your life as Aries emotions can activate ambition. Aries full moon emotions move quickly and run the gamut between feeling optimistic to easily angered. Work with this dynamism by getting courageous about your commitments. Take note, when Aries doesn’t have a mission or goal to work towards, it leans more into annoyance, and by all means give that energy something to do!

 

Everyday Ritual Recommendations:

DO // High energy exercise such as kickboxing or running, though be warned Saturn could make you feel slow! Or, find inspirational activities that keep your brain humming.

BE // Focus on some sort of practice for sitting with difficult emotions, as often Aries may want to run away from discomfort. Rose quartz, fluorite, or amethyst can be effective tools for this practice.

EAT // Anti-inflammatory foods such as turmeric and ginger may be beneficial.

WEAR // Red or orange, something with a fall feel that also adds fiery edge.

Rebalancing of the Scales: Full Moon in Libra, March 20th 2019
Rebalancing of the Scales: Full Moon in Libra, March 20th 2019

March 18, 2019

Just hours after the Sun’s move into the fierce Cardinal sign of Aries, we also welcome the Spring Equinox. A perfect balance of the night and day. You’re about to be thrust into the Astrological New Year. This energy will pack quite the punch, stirring up things that will require our immediate attention. This is another Full Moon that is debuting at zero degrees, yet again another beginning and an end. While Full Moon’s bring completions, zero degrees indicate an opportunity to start over. With centaur Chiron in the mix, it’s incredibly evident that whatever comes up in relation to this Full Moon, we must play an active role in taking responsibility for part in all of this. This may come in a bit of a painful, or unpleasant way. It’s possible we may become

With spring we welcome greener days ahead while plants seem to wake up from their winter slumber with emerging buds and blossoms as symbols of new growth. The energies are more active as animals and humans seem to awaken into more activity, and even the bees return to their pollination cycle. While we have not yet arrived at the heat of Summer, instead we can enjoy the balanced energies of Equinox as the Sun seems to suspend in time.

Spiritual Transformations: New Moon in Pisces, March 6th, 2019

February 28, 2019

The New Moon in Pisces is taking place within hours of several other major astrological transits. This is really laying the groundwork for the revelations in the month ahead. Just a day after the start of a Mercury retrograde in Pisces, the messenger has begun his journey back from a critical 29 degrees of Pisces. This is the very last degree of the 360-degree astrological wheel, indicating truths that must be revealed for the soul's development. As with many other 29 degrees, this is also a turning point, before being thrust into the following sign, which happens to be Aries. Linked up at this beginning degree of Aries is Chiron, the wounded healer. It appears Mercury is journeying back through Neptune's mystical waters all month to retrieve a message about salvation. We have several weeks ahead of psychic insight and prophecy that will begin to reveal the path to self-healing and letting go. While Mercury may be retrograde, it will be making several
