Forecast for the 2017 Aries Full Moon

12 Aries 42 / 12 Libra 42

This year’s Aries Full Moon delivers a paradoxical blend of hot-headed emotions and sober calculation.

The pairing may be unusual, but it’s just the trick to dispel the confusion and overload of recent months.

Sleepwalking, avoidance, stasis, immobility — none are possible now. Constraints are exploding and we’re acting and reacting, with cosmic clipboard in hand. And maybe a shovel.

Please follow my main site, EmpowermentUnlimited.net.

A Full Moon always brings situations and emotions to a head. Aries’ harvest is impulsive and impassioned, throwing caution (and sometimes social niceties) to the wind. Relationship issues are always in the mix, with the Sun opposite in the sign that rules them, Libra.

An Aries Full Moon lights up (and sometimes inflames) balancing the individual against the partner, or the union. This time the balancing act involves uncharacteristic texture and nuance, thanks to the cosmic triple punch that accompanies it.

First, the Moon’s ruler, Mars, is in an uncommonly restrained mode, thinking with his head instead of with his fists. He’s not only in the cerebral, detail-oriented sign of Virgo, but he is also conjunct his cosmic counterpart, Venus.

Both are coming off a clarifying, simplifying trine to Pluto, which summoned psycho-demons, survival instincts and bouts of cutting priorities down to essentials.

Stripped down, purified and raw, the ruler of our drive and sexuality is fusing with the ruler of our desires, relationships and values, in a mode of intactness and cleanliness. Our emotional and rational sides may be facing off in the Full Moon, but the masculine and feminine archetypes are on the same page (another paradox!), both approaching their domains with discrimination, a willingness to clean them up and an eye to improvement.

The blending may cool Mars’ hot-headed, gung-ho tendencies, so that he’s more determined and pragmatic than pugilistic. It may also tone down the Full Moon’s fieriness. This bodes well for going into (or starting) an emotional bonfire knowing it’s for the best. Also for rebounding from pyrotechnics with cleaning supplies and an action plan. And maybe a shovel.

The second factor is the relief and exhilaration of recently acquired freedom. While not in aspect to the Full Moon, unpredictable change agent Uranus is in the Moon’s sign, and only last week gained release from a long-standing, long-building opposition from Jupiter in Libra.

Their tension has been challenging relationships to accommodate increasingly idiosyncratic individual expression. As our own drum has become more insistent, connections have either followed or applauded the beat, or dropped away.

Look for this Full Moon to light up reactions to this tension giving way. Here’s a shortlist: Awareness of breathing room; being well and truly done with situations that muffle or trip up your beat; choosing healthy dynamics with intact boundaries; and coming away with a sensible game plan for getting what you want

Any of those reactions comes with an undeniable urge to continue reshaping the foundations of your life and connections. That’s from the third factor injecting this Full Moon with uncommon textures and nuance: the Sun and the Moon making a t-square to Pluto in Capricorn.

This configuration provides an avenue for expression and release of the standoff between reason (the Sun) and emotion (the Moon), between other people (Libra) and the self (Aries). Each extreme is bearing down on Pluto in Capricorn, the cosmic agent of unavoidable change, in the sign of our infrastructures, institutions and traditions.

The pressure is creating another round of tectonic shifts. Resistance is futile. This process is subject to forces outside mortal control.

Foundations and structures are undergoing metamorphosis. Long-term goals and ground rules are evolving — just as we are evolving, and as our connections with each other are as well.

The t-square’s pressure is dumping out in the mid degrees of Cancer, expressing itself in issues of home, family, nurturing and tribal definitions. All of them are responding to the emotional crestings of this Full Moon, the heart/will decisions, and the evolutionary surges in our closest connections.

But mostly importantly, each of us is responding.

No need to force anything. Venus/Mars in Virgo will restrain you from that. It’s a truism of therapy: as a person changes, everyone else in the system shifts, adapts and changes, too. Focus on your experience, and trust that the rest is taking care of itself.

May 2017

e too fast” vibe gets louder when the Sun beings his annual tour of  Taurus on the 19th. We’ll see how s

May promises a crazy-quilt of epiphanies and breakthroughs; explosions and implosions; structure and solidifying; and ever-greater commitment to self. And beyond the broken glass from so many shattered light bulbs, life-changing messages and streamlined priorities.

The hubbub comes from several overlapping cycles entering new phases. Our minds and information streams are in the middle of it all, tilting, opening, changing, committing and arriving at core truths. The activity fuels an actualizing fervor that ignited in December and is now hitting a reality-testing plateau. Inner fires are flaring, conveniently dovetailing with a renewed cosmic imperative for our lights to shine brightly, courageously, unabashedly.

If you’ve been feeling stuck or thwarted, help is on the way. This month’s journey will hand you occasions galore to retool your perspective, get out of your own way and embrace the value and uniqueness of the individual you are. Not to mention drop attachments that simply do not matter anymore.

Forecast for the 2016 Aries Full Moon

October 15 – 16, 2016
9:23 PM PDT /12:23 AM EDT / 4:23 AM GMT
23 Aries 14 / 23 Libra 14

The cosmic alarm clock is going off, but don’t bother reaching for the snooze button. There isn’t one. Not that anyone could sleep through the racket.

It’s coming off this year’s supercharged Aries Full Moon and its powder keg of emotional explosions, epiphanies, breakthroughs and jailbreaks. They are blasting us out of complacency and stuck places. Pushing fence sitters to jump to the ground and get going already. Detonating hair-trigger impulses venting pressure that’s been building for months, even years.

It’s all a cathartic antidote to the surreal atmosphere and whiplash-inducing reboots we’ve experienced this year. No more daze, shock, questioning sanity, feeling stalled, licking wounds or dissolving in tears. Raw, primal energy is being unleashed — life force, kundalini, courage, rage — that ignores (or thrives on) danger.

If you’ve been waiting for the nerve to pull off a risk, or make a move that’s given you pause, you now have at your disposal all the incentive, gumption and rocket fuel you could ever want. You are, in effect, packing heat. The complication is, so is everyone else.

The emotional harvest of this Moon is erupting both within us and all around us. Loose cannons and wild cards are everywhere. Ever heard of the phenomenon spontaneous human combustion? You may well see it. You may well experience it.

Little is neat, tidy or subtle. Even action you’ve been considering comes with surprises, leaping out on a schedule you didn’t contemplate, igniting with unexpected force, catapulting you into unforeseen — and probably unforeseeable — circumstances.

The volatility, unpredictability and chaos stem from the Moon’s tighter than tight company with Uranus, agent of radical change, and Eris, the goddess of discord. The Libra Sun may prefer playing nice with others, but that’s outweighed by these rabble rousers inflaming the individual end of the relationship axis represented by the Aries Moon.

Think you’ve already hit the point of “enough is enough?” Think again. With Uranus and Eris stoking this hothead, fearless Moon, there’s little chance of backsliding into dynamics of putting up with, tolerating or settling. The combined impact is making Humpty Dumpty out of out-of-balance arrangements, as well as any lingering inclination to remake yourself to fit someone’s expectations — or your projections, assumptions or beliefs of what someone expects or needs.

The Moon and her rough and rowdy companions are blowing up resistance, impediments and other forms of prisons, internal and circumstantial. The effect is catalytic, radically liberating as well as empowering, challenging us to step up and take charge of ourselves.

It’s time. We feel it, too. This Full Moon is a palpable milestone in the process of foundational upheaval, change and restructuring we’ve been undergoing for some four years, courtesy of the ongoing squabble between Uranus and Pluto.

The Aries Moon’s ruler, Mars, is heading for a conjunction with Pluto, ruler of the unavoidable end of the ongoing change imperative. Their meeting promises targeted, step-by-step, practical, mundane, concrete effort toward long-term goals — including that foundational restructuring we’ve been undergoing.

These two bodies are the traditional and modern ruler of Scorpio, the sign currently being visited by the ruler of the Libra Sun, Venus, goddess of all we hold dear (love, money, creativity, precious baubles, etc.). All the epiphanies and jailbreaks, all the apple carts being upended, all the glorious conflagration of this Full Moon, all are freeing us, hearts, energy and resources and all, for incremental progress on those long-term goals and revamped structures — including the relationships that are going along with us.

It’s time to get moving. It’s time to be bold. It’s time to just do it, whatever “it” we may have been pondering.

Postponing is unlikely, what with the cosmic alarm clock blaring for most of the rest of the month. Mars continues carrying out the cosmic change imperative by challenging Uranus, in an action-demanding square that peaks on the 28th and moves us further onto and into updated structures.

The Full Moon and the fortnight following it involve a concept that will dominate next year:  self-actualization. This Moon is priming our engines for a three-stage blast-off into that, and more, when order-loving Saturn trines radical Uranus, from the coming holiday season through November of next year.

That blast-off is part of the point of the last few years’ upheaval. This Moon frees and preps us for the journey.
