There has been a lot of buzz in the Astro-world about today’s “Monster” Moon in Aries. I don’t want this post to be about fear, because people are dealing with enough of that in their day-to-day lives. I want this to be about moving forward and doing what Aries does best: Taking action. I believe in free will. The Planets can assist us, but at the end of the day we make it happen. I look at Astrology like a supplement. Something like vitamins. It can be used in conjunction with a healthy diet! No one can live on supplements alone.
What makes this Full Moon so intense is its close contact (Within 1 Degree) with the Uranus-Pluto square. Uranus/Pluto is all about getting rid of old “Junk” (Pluto) and ushering in the new (Uranus)by any means necessary. Don’t be surprised if things (And people) you thought you needed are swept away by this current energy. We have a habit of sometimes clinging to things we think we need out of fear and a false sense of security. Pluto represents both death and re-birth, Uranus represents changes that are sudden. This Full Moon is like a demolition crew destroying old and outdated systems that are present in our lives. What’s even more revealing is most of us saw this coming! We are all going through this collectively, so know that you’re not alone.
Full Moons symbolize opposition. The opposite of Aries is Libra. The lesson here is us (Libra) Vs. me (Aries) Relationships may be challenging during this time as we figure out where people play a role in our lives, and if we want them sticking around. these relationships can be professional or personal. The Asteroid Ceres is at 0 degrees Cancer touching the t-Square involving the Sun in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn and the Sun/Uranus in Aries. Ceres is associated with nurturing, self-worth as well as issues of abandonment. Sudden losses in our lives may be triggering and these triggers may be creating food complexes believe it or not. Ceres is also the goddess of the harvest, and Moon ruled Cancer often uses food for comfort/nurturing. Remember to trust yourself and your intuition, eat balanced meals and give your body the proper rest it needs. Saturn @ 29 Degrees Libra is Quincunx the South node in Taurus forcing us to deal with some serious Karmic lessons.
If you have a copy of your natal chart look what house Aries rules and see what planets you have in either Libra/Aries within a 3 degree orb of the Full Moon. I have Pluto in Libra @ 3 degrees in my 12th house opposite Chiron in Aries in the 6th. the 6th house is associated with health. The 12th house can often symbolize the subconscious and deeply hidden complexes. This Full Moon landed right in my 6th house. I was having numbness in my hands and an over all feeling of a panic attack. I actually went to the hospital because the feeling of fear was so intense, it started having an effect on my body. Thank goodness my blood work came back fine, and I wasn’t having a stroke. Stress takes a serious toll on the body, so make sure you do your best to relax and find healing tools (reiki, meditation, working with stones/crystals) that work for you.
