The Full Moon takes place at 20°13’ of the Sign of Aries. It mainly brings upset and crisis to Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn persons, who are born in the last days of the second decan, or in the first days of the third decan.
It also affects Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius persons who are born within the first days of their Sign
A Full Moon that brings repressed feelings to the surface and shakes relationships, is taking place on the night of the 13th of October.
Full Moons are always a beautiful spectacle. The disk of the Moon hovers majestically lit, amidst the darker sea of the sky, gleaming in white marble hues, and stirring awe inside us.
In Astrology a Full Moon’s energy may be more difficult or more easy. This happens because a Full Moon usually marks a peak of sentiments that comes within the contrasting energies of the Sun and the Moon. So the outcome becomes more harmonious or more dynamic, depending on which aspects are formed at the time of the Full Moon’s occurrence.
The case with this Full Moon in Aries is that it is a great amplifier of dark emotions.
With the Moon in the Sign of Aries, we may feel the impulse of the soul to act. It may be as if a spring of emotions that are overwhelming need to be expressed.
This headlong way of the Aries is not the best way to express how we feel during this particular Full Moon. And this is because, under the intensity of planet Pluto that is making a T‑Square with the Two Lights, all hell may break loose.
You see, this Full Moon happens on the axis of Aries – Libra that relates to finding a balance between ourselves and the others.
This is the relationship axis in astrology, and in this particular case, there is a high pressure as the two lights are both steeped in the Plutonian Energy. With this Full Moon in Aries, we may feel as if somehow a dark veil has fallen on our psyche, a cloth covering smothering desires.
The Moon is in Aries and this place makes her power – aggressive, and argumentative. It is very easy that we color our deep and repressed feelings with antagonism or even anger.
Watch out for anger. Watch out for power plays in relationships.
But there are some helping aspects in this Full Moon also
One is the trine-sextile aspects that the two lights make with planet Jupiter, in a wedge formation that aids the tension.
The second is the magnificent trine that Mercury in Scorpio makes to Neptune in Pisces.
These aspects bring warm feelings, gentleness, generosity, openness, honesty, inspired thinking and spirituality, and they do work very positively for Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer, Virgo, and Taurus persons, of the middle second decan and the first days of the third decan.
But in my humble opinion, these aspects cannot balance the amplified intensity that this Full Moon is having for the Signs of the Cardinal Cross and the Fixed Signs of the first days.
This may be for the better…
Sometimes the shedding the old skin and the transforming into our new selves, worths all the pain that may come as a consequence of this very process of transformation.
Embrace the potential for transformation that this Full Moon holds, by confronting fearlessly everyone that oppresses or possesses you.
Do not fret and do not compromise!
But dear girls, do not forget first and foremost to confront fearlessly, the dark side of yourselves.
Fight it, and come out as winners.
The true Moon in Aries, Amazon style.
You know. 😉
