Aries Full Moon: Release and Resurrection

Aries Full Moon: October 13, 2019, 5:08pm Eastern


The Full Moon in Aries is the peak of the transformational lunar cycle that started with the Libra Super New Moon on September 28th. Relationships are under a lot of pressure, and it is intense!!

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, raw life force, the fiery spark of Eros that catalyzes new beginnings. The Full Moon in Aries highlights themes of identity and desire.

Who are you and what do you want? What is ALIVE for you, what excites you to move forward and what is worth investing in for the long term?

The Sun and Moon precisely square Pluto, Underworld God/dess, and secrets and suppressed feelings are erupting into the light. Pluto is the principle of death and rebirth, transformation and resurrection.

We’re called to release old ideas of who we “should” be, who we used to be, and what we used to want. To let go of what no longer feels aligned with our true self, uncover more of our present-time authenticity and stand in the authority of who we know ourselves to be now.

What needs to be felt, healed, released, surrendered, transformed in the fires of Pluto’s cauldron in order to liberate more of your FIRE? Where are you stifling or suppressing your passion, individuality and creativity because you’re following someone else’s rules?

If you’ve been hiding your truth, your desires, in order to please others and keep the peace, this Full Moon will interrupt your regularly scheduled programming and recharge relationships that have become stagnant and stale.

It’s time to feel the depths and darkness, reveal your secrets, lay your cards on the table, and discern what’s truly in alignment moving forward.

For more insight into what this Full Moon means for YOU, find find the house in your chart that contains 20 degrees Aries. The areas of life represented by that house are where:

  • events from the past, including karmic past, are coming to fruition, completion or culmination;
  • fiery feelings, desires, passions are rising to the surface to help you clarify your goals and recharge your life force;
  • you’re being called to activate your Spiritual Warrior and take committed action in integrity with your deeper values and purpose.

Word to the wise! As of October 11th, Mercury has entered its retrograde shadow, i.e., we’re starting to feel the influence of the actual retrograde – October 31-November 20. In the pre-retro shadow, we’re getting a preview of the themes we’ll be working with, what we will need to review and redo.

Because of its retrograde, Mercury will be in Scorpio for an extra-long time (Oct 3-December 9), focusing our attention – and our reviewing and redoing – on the Scorpionic realms of sexuality, intimacy, business partnerships and shared finances.

At the Full Moon, Mercury forms a powerful Grand Trine with Neptune in Pisces and the North Node in Cancer, offering support for open-hearted, vulnerable and transformational conversations and connections. As this Plutonian Full Moon urges us to reveal our secrets and speak our truth, the watery Grand Trine brings in the essential ingredients of compassion and softness.
