Happy full moon, divine spirit!

This Thursday we celebrate the full moon’s arrival in 9 degrees of Aries! This occurs at 2:05PM PT/5:05PM ET on the very first day of October. This full moon activates the Aries-Libra axis with the Moon in Aries and the Sun completely opposite in the sign of Libra.

The Arian themes include assertiveness, action, decisiveness, enthusiasm, leadership, courage, initiating, eagerness, and enterprise.

The message this full moon has¬†for us is to stand STRONG¬†in your powerful essence and focus on what YOU need and want, while balancing that masculine energy with Libra’s need for peace, harmony and connection in relationships. Libra asks us to honor the needs of others as well. Creating this balance assists us to move forward powerfully while also gracefully honoring our divine feminine energy.

It is time now to slow down, reflect on what is important to you and decide what changes are needed now to stay aligned with your beautiful soul essence. What in your life is not honoring your highest potential? Envision the steps that are needed to take to begin to honor this, and then jump into action once the new moon in Libra becomes exact on October 16th. Are you still living out of alignment with your true self as we head into the last quarter of 2020? Not quite head over heels in love with your life? This is the time to be courageous and start looking at how you can begin to TRANSFORM this!

This full moon is aligning with Chiron in Aries. This may bring up an opportunity for healing around our relationship with our mothers or our past. Notice what is coming up for you in these areas.

Saturn just ended its retrograde journey, going direct late on September 28th.  Pluto will join Saturn in direct motion on October 4th. We can expect to see some progress going forward with structures or projects that we have been working on this year (Saturn), as well as an opportunity to create powerful transformation in the areas of life where we have been doing the deep inner work (Pluto).

We will enter Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio on October 13th and will remain there until November 3rd. The retrograde time asks us¬†to take time to care for ourselves…….to slow down, breathe and take care of¬†body, mind and spirit. Take this time to redo, revise, reorganize, reconnect, reflect¬†and revisit wherever needed. It’s a great time to “clean out the closets” and revamp both your inner and outer environments. Continue to take time to reflect on where you’ve been during this wild year and decide how you would like your 2021 to look. What is still calling out to be released from your life from this year? What do you intend to create in the coming new year?

It’s a GREAT¬†time to review your intentions that you¬†created¬†during this recent new¬†moon cycle,¬†pay attention to anything that comes up for¬†revision with those intentions, then¬†wait until after the Scorpio¬†new moon on November 14th¬†to implement major actions if at all possible.

A few things to keep in mind during the retrograde:

  • If possible, avoid making large purchases such as cars and¬†homes.
  • Make sure your computer has been backed up and try not to buy electronics during this time if you can help it.
  • It’s a good idea to wait on launching a new business, signing important contracts, and making important decisions if possible. Decision making can be off at this time and you may find afterwards that you didn’t have all of the¬†information needed to do so. If you do need to do any of these things, just be sure to double and triple check written contracts and ensure that there are no miscommunications.

When considering the above-always go with your inner guidance, first and foremost! Maybe you are feeling guided to go ahead and do something on the above list. Maybe your car just broke down and you need to buy a new one during the retrograde period. These are just guidelines, not hard and fast rules. Do whatever you feel divinely guided to do!

Full moons¬†celebrate¬†the culmination of the things you¬†have been working to achieve since the beginning of the cycle¬†with the new moon 2 weeks ago. Be sure to celebrate ALL of¬†your amazing achievements, big and small! Emotions can run high within a few days before and after full moons, so don’t be surprised if you have been feeling weepy or a bit on edge this week.¬† What are you aware of that is no longer resonating with you in your life? It is time to release it with love so that you are able to move forward into new¬†levels on your soul’s sacred journey.¬†You can journal about what you intend to release and then burn the paper in a fire safe container, releasing that energy to the Universe to be magically transformed.

I invite you to reflect or journal upon these questions now:

  • Am I honoring my inner wisdom and my vision for my ideal life?
  • Where have I been settling for less?
  • How may I serve others while still fully honoring my own needs?

I would LOVE to hear how this Aries full moon is impacting you! Please feel free to leave a comment below.
Enjoy the lunar energies! <3
