Full Moon in Aries, October 5/6, 2017

General Meaning – Full Moons 

The mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the Full Moon.  During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.

The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour & consciousness.  In addition, during a Full Moon, both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

During a FULL MOON, the Moon is fully illuminated as it sits in opposition to our Sun.  The energy (influenced by the current Zodiac transit) is heightened and emotions, feelings, mental processes, dreams etc are all amplified.  When the Sun & Moon oppose each other during a Full Moon, this can cause tension & uncomfortable friction, but at the same time a greater amplification of vision & potential possibility.  The Full Moon is a powerful time of gratitude, gracefully acknowledging the beauty of life itself and all you have brought into beingness.  You may feel a burning desire to express your creativity, bliss out in sensual activities & through fierce yet profoundly tender vibrations let go of any aspects of your life that no longer serve the grandest vision of your Soul.

The FULL MOON is a great time to ‘moon bathe’ – simply sit under the light of the moon & meditate – and is you breathe-in allow the moon to warm your Heart & expand the beauty of the present moment, and as you breathe-out let the light of the moon transmute that which you wish to release.   Full Moon ceremonies, either lighting a candle for yourself or coming together with others in sacred circle, is a powerful way to bring healing to the self/group and simply BE this Wave of LOVE for all Humanity & planet Earth.  I LOVE placing my crystals out under the Full Moon to cleanse their crystalline structures and infuse them with solar vibrations.

The energy of our Aries Full Moon is a ‘Call to Action’ for humanity, a choice point in our individual & collective potentials.   This is a Full Moon of action, a coming out of the shadows and a rising up to take our place on the frontier lines of revolutionary change.  

During the ARIES Full Moon, the moon is reflecting the light of the Sun in LIBRA.  As the forces of the Sun & Moon oppose each other (Ego-Emotions, I-We) … our FULL MOON is being super-charged by a POWERFUL interplay of planetary alignments… making this a fiercely intense astrological cycle.

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and exudes a wilful independence, a pioneering spirit that presents to us as the feeling of anything is possible.  Aries is ruled by Mars the GOD of war, bloodshed & fighting.   Aries is all about ‘Me’ and what do ‘I’ want.

Opposing this fierce energy is our Libra Sun,  encouraging us to walk our paths in harmony, co-operation & blessed community. Libra is ruled by Venus the GODDESS of Love, beauty & harmony.  Libra is all about ‘Us’ and what do ‘We’ want.

As our Aries Moon opposes our Libra Sun, we are super-charged to transcend obstacles/ fears / doubts about what is possible in our lives and BELIEVE with wholeheart in something more beautiful for humanity.   Deep within our Hearts, at the core of our very beings… is a longing to shed the superficial story of separation, anger & fear… and a transcendent desire to simply LOVE one another.

As I created this months Astro Chart (click on image right to enlarge), I was completely awestruck by the interplay of Venus & Mars this FULL Moon. 

As I mentioned above Mars is the GOD of war, bloodshed & fighting.  Venus is the GODDESS of Love, beauty & harmony.  And Mars & Venus are both conjunct in the astrological sign of VIRGO… the ‘maiden’ that is full of GRACE and symbolises purity, justice and service.  Plus both are at a square to Pluto (anything is possible when we believe).

With the archetypical ‘Priest’ (Mars) & ‘Priestess’ (Venus) in the Virgonian ‘Divine Feminine’ embrace of justice through GRACE… PLUS with Mercury (communication) firing up our Sun (Moon)…  we are being CALLED to ACTION, to speak-up, to not play small anymore… there is work to do and the time is NOW.  Believe it and you will see it !

The collaborative energy of  Mars-Venus-Mercury-Pluto-Sun on our Full Moon reminds me of a famous quote by Martin Luther King Jr:

Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.

There is power in the collective when we let go of the fear/darkness and BELIEVE in a grander, more beautiful possibility for humanity in our hearts.   When individually (Aries) we see the Light in each other (Libra) we remember we belong to each other, the truth of who we are is LOVE.

Our Aries FULL Moon is also being influenced by Jupiter (expansion) in opposition to Uranus (rebellion)… furthering the desire for people to take a stand… a collective resurgence in sacred-activism. A standing up to our freedoms, human rights, gender rights, civil rights, women’s rights (and male rights for that matter), refugee rights AND our rights to live as FREE HUMAN beings and not being enslaved by the oppressive agendas of governments and those who try to inflict power/control over us.

In Summary, following on from our Venus Retrograde earlier this year… the stage is once again being set this Full Moon for the flourishing of a deeply primal ancient DIVINE FEMININE energy that is collaborative, powerful yet gentle and oozes with sensuality, pleasure and sacred purpose.  An energy that doesn’t seek to control, but rather chooses to include as it stands in balance and harmony with the Divine Masculine… taking our world into a new era of living & being through LOVE.

Asteroid 2012 TC4

On a side note… Coming up on the 12 October 2017, Asteroid 2012 TC4 will be pass between the orbit of the Earth & Moon, coming within an eighth of the distance from the Earth to the Moon. 

At the time of the passby on October 12, our Moon will be 366,000 km above the Earth and Asteroid 2012 TC4 will pass at 44,000km above the Earth.

The last time Asteroid 2012 TC4 passed Earth was in October 2012 and passed us at approx 95,000km above the Earth.

Asteroid 2012 TC4 is between 15m to 30metres wide and its projection will be ‘arced’ by Earth’s gravity as it passes by Earth at approx 10km per second.

The Asteroid is ‘iron debris’ left over from the formation of our solar system approx 4.6 billion years ago.
