The Moon will be in rambunctious Aries from Friday afternoon, 7/14, until Sunday night, 7/16/17. When the Lunar orb transits the 1st sign of the Zodiac, which is ruled by warrior planet Mars, we feel braver and more physical, more “up for anything”. Depending upon what the “anything” is, it could be the best of times or the most precarious of times.
Aries = energy and you probably won’t want to sit around for too long in one place. Take advantage of the urge for action and movement – do something exciting, do something different.
However, keep cool, keep the peace, keep the flame thrower in the closet. But, still have a dynamic weekend!
This month’s Full Moon is in the Fire sign of Aries on Thursday 9/23. It is also this year’s Harvest Moon. (“Harvest” is any Full Moon that occurs closest to the Autumnal Equinox– which happened when the Sun glided into Libra on 9/22/10.) During this Full phase, the Libra Sun is directly opposite and lights the Aries Moon. Rather than the more familiar crescent shape, we see it round and beautiful.
The Moon is “waning” on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, making it a good time to finish up old projects, clean up messes that you have been staring at for the past few weeks. An Aries Moon is perfect for physical activity. Get it done! Once you clear out what has been hanging around, you will create space for the “new” – ideas, things, people, places. However, fiery Aries can be a little over the top with all that Mars energy. Don’t do that “throw out the baby with the bath water” thing. Think it through before letting go?
On the afternoon of Friday 7/30, the Moon will march into the physical, aggressive sign of Aries. (Think “Action figure”.) This Fire sign is ruled by the planet Mars – the unofficial patron saint of warriors. Arian Moons are great for movement rather than mental activity, but still a good time to initiate, take charge- just think it thru and go for it.
Power down occasionally so that loved ones don’t feel that they are in the presence of a bulldozer, but by all means, take advantage of the energy – get crackin’, do something different, conquer new territories, etc., etc. (Just be nice!)
The long 4th of July Weekend begins with the Moon in sensitive, highly imaginative Pisces. Stay as grounded as you can, drill down and focus so that you can get your holiday preparations done before the Moon snaps into Aries early Saturday morning July 3rd.
The effects of the Aries Fire sign energy will be felt until Monday. Great time for activities, verbal sparring, and kinetic movement. Use the physicality/ jettison any anger that might be lurking. A reminder that “bigger is better“Jupiter and unpredictable Uranus are still sitting in Aries, which just adds to the power surge. A cautionary shout out for extremes and spontaneous combustion. Stick to sparklers, leave the grenades. (Stay safe/ stay calm.)
