October 9: Aries Full Moon

This Full Moon occurs when the Moon in Aries comes to oppose the Sun in Libra.  This axis highlights our need for independence/separateness versus our need to be connected to others and part of a unit. Do you have balance in your relationships? Have you maintained your individuality within the union (or friendship)? If either end of this spectrum has been over-emphasized, or there has been a recent wound in love, you’ll definitely feel it now. Are you willing to change what isn’t working? 

Unrealistic expectations associated with the September 25th Libra New Moon will lead to problems now. Solutions to these will come to those with the courage to face these relationship issues and are willing to handle it with maturity. The Full Moon conjunct Chiron and opposite Venus will support the healing of relationship trauma. If you feel like someone you know deserves an apology, now is the time. Unspoken words may lead to resentment when Mars goes retrograde next month.

Planets in Libra, Aries, Capricorn, Cancer:  The Full Moon is when we reach a climax from our efforts. Did you have the courage to go after your desires? Did you plan well and respect your limits? If you answered yes to both, you will see a successful peak now.  If you answered no to either, you may experience frustration.  Identify the problem areas and use the next two weeks to make a plan for how to fix this. Focus on your Air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) planets or houses for support right now.

Planets in Leo, Gemini, Sagittarius, Aquarius: You will have an easier time. If you’ve been actively trying to manifest projects since the New Moon, this is when your new goals will be tested.  Have you been patient and thought things through? If the answer is yes, you should see a successful turning point here.  Spend the next two weeks being honest with yourself about where you’re at and make sure you haven’t skipped over any important details.  This crazy momentum you’ve been experiencing won’t always be there.. There will be a shift when Mars goes retrograde on Oct 29, and daily life may not run as smoothly as it has been.  Make sure you’re prepared!
