Aries Full Moon Eclipse: October 2013

The Moon is full in Aries tonight at 7:37 pm Eastern, meaning the Moon will be opposite the Libra Sun.  The opposition of the Moon to the Sun indicates a tension between emotion (Moon) and reason (Sun), between conscious thought (Sun and instinctive drives (Moon). The word “tension” is defined as “the state of being stretched tight.”  In the Full Moon (or any other planetary opposition as well) we are being stretched to our outer limits to use all of our resources and gifts as nature intended.  Full Moons can […]

Powerful Aries Full Moon, September 29 2012

by Lynn Hayes This Full Moon is one of the most powerful events of the summer and is tightly wrapped up into the intense dynamic of change from the square formation between Uranus and Pluto. Every Full Moon contains an opposition between the Sun and the Moon, and the solar force of conscious awareness creates tension with the lunar force of instinct and emotion.  During the Full Moon the Sun is invisible, seen only in the illumination of the Moon and the power of the inner world. The Aries Full […]

Full Moon in Aries: October 11, 2011

The Aries Full Moon occurs on the evening of October 11th. As in any Full Moon, the Aries Moon opposes the Libra Sun, bringing the Aries/Libra polarity into the forefront of our awareness. The Aries/Libra dynamic balances the need for self-orientation (Aries) with a focus on  The Other (Libra). Libra itself  seeks to achieve balance, and in that quest there is often a loss of the desired balance  as the quest for harmony, especially in relationships, takes precedence over personal needs. Aries maintains the focus on personal needs and is […]

Full Moon in Aries: October 22, 2010

The Full Moon on Friday, October 22nd, is at the very last degree of Aries.  Aries is the sign of initiation and courage; the sign that inspires us to forge ahead despite our fears and anxieties and make things happen.  The 29th degree is a symbol of completion, and the Full Moon is the symbol of fulfillment and readiness for gestation.  There is a sense here of a readiness for personal growth and evolution that can come to fruition if our conscious intention reflects the purity of the Will. In […]

Harvest moon

The Full Moon occurs on September 23rd at 5:17 am Eastern time in the sign of Aries, balancing the Sun which has just entered Libra.  Full Moons occur when the Moon is in opposition to the Sun, and oppositions require that we learn to balance opposite forces.The Aries/Libra polarity is itself concerned with finding balance and harmony (Libra) while staying firmly rooted in our own individuality (Aries).  Me and you, this and that, here and there – all are differences that need to be brought into balance under the Aries […]

The Autumn Equinox and the Harvest Moon

sadly I do not know to whom this artwork should be attributed!! The Autumn Equinox takes place on Wednesday when the Sun enters Libra, followed the next day by the Full Moon in Aries which is often called the Harvest Moon.  Thanks to John and Susan Townley for finding this interesting article on the subject from the Wall Street Journal of all places. Astrologer Nick Campion is quoted in the article as a “historian of cultural astronomy at the Universe of Wales.”  Astrology isn’t mentioned, even though Nick is really […]

Aries Full Moon tomorrow!

Over the past week Mercury has been harmonizing with both Pluto and Mars, facilitating resolution of the anger and breakdowns that erupted with the Sun/Pluto/Mars T-square a week ago. Mercury is the messenger and its presence now in the release of the T-square energy makes it easier to process the information that came out of these critical events. This heightened understanding paves the way for the Full Moon in Aries on the 26th. The Aries Full Moon opposes the Libra Sun and strives for harmony and balance between individuality (Aries) […]
