Full Moon in Aries: The IMPULSE of INDIVIDUATION
October 5th, 2017 (at 2:40 pm EDT - 12 deg 42’)
“The paradox of individuation is that we best serve intimate relationship by becoming sufficiently developed in ourselves that we do not need to feed off others.”
― James Hollis, The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Midlife
Today’s Full Moon in Aries opposes the Sun in Libra, representing the height of the waxing lunar cycle. A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly opposite each other by sign, representing the symbolic POLARITY that the opposing signs represent.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and represents the IMPULSE OF INDIVIDUATION. Are you ready to strike a match? Where are your impulses leading you?
The Aries / Libra polarity represents:
personal interests vs. joint interests
personal identity vs. relating
selfishness vs. sharing
asserting yourself vs. compromise
charging ahead vs. maintaining balance
This Full Moon illustrates the planetary themes of VENUS and MARS; the Sun is now in the sign of Libra, which is ruled by the planet Venus. The Moon is in the sign of Aries, which is ruled by the planet Mars. Not only are Venus and Mars represented by the Full Moon, but Venus and Mars are actually CONJUNCT, meaning they are close together in the full moon chart, and merging their energies in the sign of Virgo.
This Full Moon is all about negotiation, and not just about how you relate to others. This is a powerful time to look at your personal options: what SPARKS YOUR FIRE? Are you taming your urges just to keep the peace?
The energies of this Full Moon can be quite volatile; we can get easily triggered if we are too quick to take offense. Patience can be in short supply, and people can be rather touchy (with Pluto squaring the full moon.)
Utilize the full moon intensity by committing to your individuality: write down your goals, make a plan, and shake yourself out of inertia to spark your inner fire!
By feeding our flame, we inspire others to do the same. The Aries Full Moon asks us to make a new start - a commitment to seeding a path with courage and heart!
