This morning, October 20, 2021, we have a full moon in Aries at 7:57 am PDT. This full moon is full of “hot” energy with Mars conjunct the sun in Libra and applying at this full moon both square to Pluto in Capricorn. The full moon at 27 degrees 26 minutes of Aries, cardinal energy packs a punch so be mindful of how quickly things can drop in on you! Mars may be acted out as free will or taking courage, but it can also be the outburst of unexpected pent-up feelings of frustration or even anger. Consider your own chart and where Aries is within the houses and second where Mars is activating things in Libra.
This moon is also separating from a conjunction with Eris by three degrees so there is an additional element of tension that lights up discord. Mercury is direct but still picking up speed in Libra at 10 degrees 29 minutes. Mercury is still within orb of its trine (easy flow) with Saturn in Aquarius, so collaborations can still bring new ideas for future projects to the table with the North Node of the moon in Gemini at 3 degrees and Ceres at 11 degrees Gemini (retrograde) there is a supportive wise matriarch-caring quality embedded in the possible communication and teaching opportunity as well. Likely the most pleasant aspect is Jupiter trine both Mars and the Sun from Aquarius at 22 degrees and still picking up speed so it has stronger energy within this full moon. Supporting energy is such a bonus when there are other hard aspects to navigate. Jupiter in Aquarius is helping us expand our connection relative to our allies or groups that support us. Jupiter is the archetype of growth, so consider where this growth is taking you. What new allies have you found in the recent weeks, did you get to know them online (Aquarius)?
Venus is at 14 degrees of Sagittarius at this full moon offering supportive freedom-loving energy for this fiery moon. It may spark the desire to “get out of the house” without much notice! Venus in Sagittarius may draw you towards the urge to travel, consider where your heart wants to explore, whether you go with your entire physical being or just your mind, either way, it will bring you some joy.
Neptune at 20 degrees 52 minutes of Pisces is six signs away from Libra, so it is in a discordant position with Mars, the ruler of this full moon in Aries. Also in the blind spot of one sign away from Aries. There is a tension that flows in the undercurrent of this full moon in Aries connected to perhaps escapism, but maybe even the ability to just go with the flow. This full moon is more active and will require action, to align with the full moon energy it is helpful to consider something that gets your heart going and perhaps a beautification of something like your yard or even your own body and physical presence. So raking the leaves for the yard might burn some extra energy that needs an outlet. Taking a brisk walk with a friend can also burn the extra energy of this full moon, just be careful on what topics you discuss that might be sensitive to whomever you invite to join you.
Uranus at 13 degrees 24 minutes of Taurus is retrograde and building toward the last square with Saturn in Aquarius that happens in December. For now, unless you have planets and angles at 13 degrees plus or minus five degrees you may only notice it in the changing supply lines of products available in the market. It will get more challenging as the year comes to a close.
Though the sun is in peacemaking balancing Libra, this full moon will likely bring tensions and some flare-ups of feelings about individual perspectives or identity related to balancing something between two polarities. It is not an easy task. Libra Sun with Mars, knocking on the table demanding its own version of how it should be. Patience and taking a pause before reacting is the best choice, even more so if you are a Mars-ruled individual. Namaste. Bless this moment.
