“Think slow—act fast.”
-- Buster Keaton (Libra born near a full Moon in Aries)
Gear up, grab your helmet and put your ego in check, the firebrand full Moon in Aries is about to butt heads with us all on October 11. This is our annual reminder to face life and love with an attitude of, “Bring it!” There’s no pussyfooting while the Moon rages full in Aries. Putting off action for a later date is courting disaster. Love relationships get heated and intensity erupts like a house on fire when egos flare. If we feel we’re being treated second-class -- it’s time to pull out the big guns!
This is a time for action. A sense of urgency can be felt all around. Patience is in short supply, so don’t push buttons or promise things that you aren’t ready to act on immediately.
Are you a lover or a fighter? Either way, having it out with the one you love can be the most bonding necessity at this time. It’s always the couples that never fight that end up in the War of the Roses divorce battles when all that was suppressed for years comes raging to the surface. Mr. and Mrs. Nice Guy will not be invited to the full-Moon-in-Aries party.
Passive-aggressiveness will not only get you nowhere but you’ll probably be punished, too. We all feel like we’re reaching our boiling point and enough is enough. It’s time to sever the cords with those who refuse to take our best interest into consideration. Co-dependency is ugly at this point, so don’t even go there. Uranus in Aries won’t abide by losing your authenticity to be liked.
This full Moon demands that we look after ourselves and stop hoping there is someone out there that can do a better job at it. This is the great Hall-of-Mirrors full Moon. Who is the real enemy? The battlefield is usually with our own ego and vanity issues that need to be resolved from within. No matter how many thousands of times or sources tell us we’re good enough, smart enough and gosh-darnit people worship us -- we’ll keep on comparing and despairing in the name of self-doubt until we reach the point of self-possession.
Aries says that if we can come home to our deepest “I AM” principle and get clear on who we are and where we’re projecting our best onto others, we still stand a chance. And let’s face it: Aries loves a good fight. We must fight the good fight to keep our fire burning on a daily basis -- to make every day, every interaction, a thrilling new creation.
