This month the Full Moon, called a “Harvest Moon” due to the season, is in the 1st sign of the Zodiac. As always with Fire sign Aries, make sure you have something physical to do to burn off all that excess energy. Reign in any aggressive urges, think before you act. Ruled by “Warrior” planet Mars, its combustible, aggressive, spark plug traits may be influenced by transiting Uranus, the unpredictable planet of change and revolution. (It remains until May 2018.)
Use the next few weeks to finish up old projects, clean up messes (physical, personal?) that you have been ignoring lately. Initiate, take charge, go first – just don’t do that “throw out the baby with the bath water” thing. Think it through and get it done.
* Harvest Full Moon in Aries 10/5/17 * 2:40 PM EDT / 11:40 AM PDT
**The first Full Moon after the Autumn Equinox is always labeled a “Harvest Moon” (9/22/17 – Sun moved into Libra)
During a “Full” phase, the luminaries are exactly opposite each other. The Aries Moon is fully lit by the Libra Sun. (Beautiful, dramatic, nothing to fear.)
The revolution may be televised or not – but there will certainly be unusual, unconventional activity as we encounter not only a Full Moon, in freedom loving, group focused Aquarius, but also a Lunar Eclipse. A stubborn, independent cause infused sign, it is all about “We / Us” rather than “I / Me”.
The humanitarian, 11th sign of the Zodiac encourages spontaneous change, community activism, group fun with a purpose and just contribution in general. Before jumping to the front lines, pause and reflect – is the issue real for you, or is the response automatic / knee jerk. “No Justice, No Peace” – (Love it)
Just a reminder – a ”Full” Moon phase packs power and can give our thoughts clarity. It starts the “waning” or decreasing period, on its way to the 3rd and 4th Moon quarters. This can be a great time to gather and tally results or confront the useless. Clean up old projects, get rid of outmoded thought patterns and attitudes in order to clear the way for the “New” Moon in about 2 weeks.
*Aquarius Full Moon: 8/7/17 – 2:11 PM EDT * 11:11 AM PDT
** Lunar Eclipse: It’s power increases the possibility of positive change manifesting over the next few months.
The earthy, Saturn ruled, 10th sign of the Zodiac is about ambition, authority, duty. Capricorn leans towards long term goals, managing a career, creating success (whatever that means to you) and reaching for the top. Are your personal actions and business strategies producing results?
If feeling the need to change and / or move forward, take the time to figure out a path to handle what is necessary. We can use Capricorn’s Full Moon energy to finalize and complete projects, activate plans that can move you closer to what we want.
*Capricorn Full Moon: 12:07 AM EDT 7/9/17 – 9:07 PM PDT 7/08/17
The Virgo Full Moon energy on Sunday March 12, 2017 inclines us to take care of ourselves and our work. Ruled by clever Mercury, this responsible, hard working 6th sign of the Zodiac is about health, service, self-improvement, handling the details and getting things done. Just be careful not to do too many things at once. Juggling might be exciting and a personal test of skills, but don’t go overboard. Think “pace”.
A Full Moon phase is a great time to move towards finalizing whatever project or diet regimen you may have been planning. The universe will support you in being healthy and contributing. Its influences will last for several days even when the Astrology sign changes to Libra.
*Virgo Full Moon: March 12, 2017 – 10:54 AM EDT /7:54 AM PDT
(the Moon, Virgo is opposite and reflecting the Sun, Pisces = “Full Moon”.)
HEADS UP – Daylight Savings Time begins at 2AM 3/12 – Set clocks one hour ahead (Spring Forward!)
On Tuesday December 13, 2016 the Sun is in Sagittarius, which means that this month’s Full Moon, is in the opposite sign – Gemini. While the Moon is in the Mercury ruled 3rd sign of the Zodiac, communication is key. Speaking / writing can tend towards the witty and the clever, but with “Full” energy, our interactions can also be purposeful, powerful and precise. I love this quote from Deepak Chopra:
“Language creates reality. Words are magical power. Speak always to create joy”
(Let us all do that!)
As always with a “Full” phase, finish and complete any old projects hanging around. Clear out any debris to make room for what’s next.
* Gemini Full Moon: 12/13/16 – 7:05 PM EST / 4:05 PM PST
Looking beautiful, feeling stubborn and being material? It might be the vibrations of the Taurus Full Moon on Monday. This is a fixed, finance focused Earth sign guided by the elegant, luxury loving planet Venus. Whatever vibes are out there can all be put to good use. Indulge the sensual side while monitoring investments. Share chocolate covered strawberries with a significant other while tallying the checkbook at the same time. It’s possible 😎
As always with a “Full” Moon, it’s a good time to finish what you’ve started. With the grounded Taurus influence, it makes sense to complete any financial dealings and/or improvements to surroundings – beauty, comfort and safety. What do you value most? Who do you need to be – to do what you want and have what you desire?
*Taurus Full Moon: November 14, 2016 8:52 AM EST / 5:52 AM PST
October 15th and 16th (West / East) delivers a brilliant, Full Moon in Aries, the 1st sign of the Zodiac. Ruled by “Warrior” planet Mars, combustible, aggressive, spark plug Aries’ usual “in your face” posture may be influenced by transiting Uranus, the unpredictable planet of change and revolution. (It remains until May 2018.) Remember, you can be radical, honest and direct, rather than just loud and angry.
Do the suggested Full Moon things – finish up old projects, clarify any fuzzy ideas that are hanging around. Use the extra Aries energy to get things done. By clearing out useless stuff, you create space for the new. However, this forceful Fire sign can be a little over the top sometimes. Don’t torch everything while trying to weed out the old, think things through before the ashes start to pile too high.
Full Moon in Aries 10/15/16 – Pacific 9:23 PM * 10/16/16 – Eastern 12:23AM
**During a “Full” phase, the luminaries are exactly opposite each other. The Aries Moon is fully lit by the Libra Sun – beautiful. No werewolves allowed 😈
A Full Moon on Thursday August 18, 2016 is in the revolutionary 11th sign of the Zodiac – independent, unconventional Aquarius. Its influence will be noticed.
Retrograde Uranus, this Air sign’s planet ruler, hates constrictions and thrives on the unusual, which can be exciting but precarious. Before jumping to the front lines, pause and reflect – is the issue real for you, or is the response automatic / knee jerk. You can still volunteer, organize, make a difference, do the “No Justice, No Peace” chant without falling off the edge.
And, a Full Moon phase is great for completing projects.
* Virgo Full Moon: August 18, 2016 – 5:26 AM EDT / 2:36 AM PDT
On Tuesday, July 19, 2016, the Sun is in Cancer, the Lunar orb is lit up and “Full” in its opposite sign of Capricorn. The Astrology sign that houses a Full Moon has its traits and characteristics heightened for a few weeks. The earthy, Saturn ruled, 10th sign of the Zodiac is about status, ambition, authority, duty. Capricorn leans towards long term goals, managing a career, creating success (whatever that means to you) and reaching for the top. Are your personal actions and business strategies producing results?
“I’m in charge” – take the time to figure out a path to do that successfully. We can use Capricorn’s Full Moon energy to finalize and complete projects, activate plans that can move you closer to what you want.
*Capricorn Full Moon: 7/19/16 – 6:56PM EDT / 3:56PM PDT
On Saturday May 21, 2016, the Sagittarius Moon is fully lit by the Sun in its opposite sign of Gemini – very dramatic, but nothing to fear. (No fangs or hairy knuckles.) The entire weekend will be under the benevolent influence of the wise, but perky and energetic 9th sign of the Zodiac. Ruled by lucky, expansive Jupiter, expect a lean towards adventure, an “of course good things can happen” outlook and a willingness to go for miracles – which can come in handy when edging a project toward fruition. A “Full” phase is a time to look for results– we start to see the end product of plans started at the time of the New Moon back on 5/6/16.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, at “Full” phase the Moon is “waning”, on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, therefore, we could feel its effects for about another2 weeks.
