Full Moon in Aries: A Spiritual Battleground

The moon is full at 20 degrees of Aries on October 13th. This is one hell of a fiery, No-b.s. influence, kicking things into high gear. There is a spiritual quality to this Full Moon that is so subtle some may completely miss it. Those who notice have entered what may be termed the cusp of a cosmic rebirth. It involves a call deeper into our souls to access the whole truth of who and what we are, what we value, what we stand for, as well as what we would defend with our very lives.

There are those who support spiritual truth and authenticity and those who would fight against it and try to tear it and us down. Those who would oppose the righteous use their ignorance against them, so it would behoove such folks to recognize that tolerance, like ignorance, is not bliss but the cause of terrible suffering. Sadly, the blind lead the blind, and the ignorant perpetuate their ignorance far and wide until some random trouble-maker, like a bolt of lightning shakes the status quo of stupidity and meaningless violence. If you are sick and tired of lies do not tolerate them. If you despise crime, then expose it. Do not tolerate abuse. Do not tolerate evil in this world. What good does tolerance in this instance do? To inform ourselves and others in compassionate ways is one way to show love and take responsibility for what is being created in our lives.

The Sabian symbol for this moon is “A pugilist enters the ring”. Leading up to this weekend fires have raged (they literally have in California) and battles have been initiated. The Arian warrior theme is full on and aggression is more than just an undertone, it’s a blatant overtone. Every undertaking has had extra force, even urgency behind it. Impatience is at an all-time peak. Remember to breathe. There is so much potency in every thought that it would amaze us to know the extent of the power that just one can wield. Meditation can help to purify the thoughts that do run amok in our minds and so direct them more carefully. Desire and willpower combine in strength and therefore goals stand a much greater chance of being fulfilled than usual. This can be hugely positive or negative depending on who is willing what into manifestation.

The Moon forms an exact square to Pluto and also to Saturn which is 14 degrees of Capricorn. The tension is real. There is some previously hidden business coming to light, and words that long went unspoken now being unleashed. But be careful for those who seem to be seething inside. They are like volcanos who could be ready to explode at any moment, most likely when it is least expected. Mercury in Scorpio goes Retrograde on October 31st but has already entered the pre-shadow phase. Many people are less likely to hold their tongues and what they have to say will be deep and impactful.

The Moon’s opposition involves the Sun in relationship-oriented Libra. It would do well to choose wisely how to engage with others or whether or not they should even be part of the picture anymore. It could be that some ties must be severed because they have become infested for both parties.

Aries’ ruling planet Mars is inconjunct Uranus in Taurus. Nobody wants to take advice or a back seat. Fewer will be willing to wait around for someone else’s help during this period so they are more likely to help themselves. In some cases that is perfect and just what’s needed.

An exact trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius is the precious saving grace, expanding both perceptions and possibilities where none were visible before. This is the time to trust your own instincts above all. They may have been creeping up as those odd hunches you have about so-and-so next door or maybe as the solution to a problem that’s been tumbling around in the back of you head for several weeks. Your intuition may steer you clear of danger or guide you to the situation you have been hoping for. You gotta do what you gotta do, and chances are you’ll do a better job than you or anyone thought you would.
