Full Moons are big, bright, dominant, full of conflict & illuminating of what lurks in the shadows.
Aries shadow is full on aggressive, arrogant and confrontational.
As we move into the shorter days it is time to surrender the things of summer and embrace the approaching darkness.
This can bring up feelings of resistance, feelings we are not yet ready to embrace.
Aries is the impulse & drive that creates new life, against all odds. And here he finds himself in the decaying fallen mulch of autumn. Frustrated with the slower pace, desperate to conquer new grounds & announce himself King of the world.
This full moon you may feel like you are being pulled in two different opposing directions - spring & fall.
The words are self-explanatory - your desire to spring forward is jolted by the denser energy of fall...
You may feel a tyrannical need to push, finish, power on through, and when this isn't possible, you can guarantee that stern beration is in tow.
If you feel a need to cling to all the hopes and dreams of this year that didn't come to full fruition in the solar peak as you might have hoped, know that this will pass soon enough.
If you feel a need to judge yourself for everywhere you think you are too lazy or don't do enough, know that this will pass soon enough.
If you feel a need to compare yourself with others and wonder why you aren't further ahead yet, know that this will pass soon enough.
Autumn is the season of letting go, of surrendering, of dying in order to be reborn - yet we fear the death because we do not trust fully in life.
An Aries full moon is a challenging energy to navigate as the clocks prepare to go backwards, so if you are feeling stuck & out of sync right now, remind yourself that...
'You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees or the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.'
Let the full moon reign down upon you, & allow her to show you what to let go of in order to fully embrace the waning solar energy of 2016.
With an abundance of Full Moon Love for you 🌕
