Welcome to an amazing day of possibility! Tonight's Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries is like a beacon for seeing your way forward. The Moon is concerned with emotional comfort and in the first sign of the zodiac - Aries, and riding the wave of a Total Eclipse (2 minutes earlier...), it acts as a rocket booster for illumination and realization of your personal ambitions!
On top of that, the "super" charged energy makes everything feel and appear bigger. The reason the Moon appears larger is that it is at Perigee, the closest to the Earth in its cycle. This Moon is also called the "Blood Moon" and is the last in a tetrad of four Eclipses that appear tinged with red. Try to think of this supercharged, Blood Moon as imbuing you with the strength and energy to take action as you move forward in your life.
The emotional nature of a Full Moon will have positive or negative effects on you depending on where you have 5 degrees of Aries in your chart. For instance, if in the 11th House of goals, aspirations, groups and friendships, you will have energy for seeking new friends and developing or starting projects that are in sync with your current inspirations. Share your ideas with people who can relate to your vision and support your aims.
In the Full Moon chart for tonight, the Moon in Aries is in a harmonious aspect to Saturn, recently moved into Sagittarius. The inner self-confidence you are feeling can boost your ability to move forward as you explore new horizons. These two Fire signs provide the impetus to achieve you ambitions through inspiration and seeking. Make sure you take advantage of this auspicious time to gain headway in your search for inner security!
Playing a supporting role in this chart is a conjunction of Mars (energy and action) and Jupiter (enthusiasm and expansion), both in practical Virgo. The emphasis here is on seeking meaningful work and instituting healthy habits in a thoughtful and pragmatic manner as you begin to embrace change on a daily basis. What do you want to do with your time every day? Are you spending too much time picking up after yourself, when a few small changes in your housekeeping habits could make a big difference each day...?!
Two more planetary alignments add weight to this Full Moon chart. the first is the Sun joining with Mercury, yes Retrograde... providing intellectual stimulation and efficiency in communication, especially as it involves partnerships and significant relationships. Don't promise more than you can provide, but do make the effort to talk about what needs to be spoken. and lastly, Mercury is also squaring off with Pluto, so watch our for bumping into others, knocking heads or hitting your head up against a brick wall. This can be a very productive time, which can bring about solutions to long-standing problems, if we all compromise!
The last thing I'll leave you with is an image of the Sabian Symbol for 5 degrees of Aries, (courtesy of Lynda Hill) and the Full Moon point: "A White Triangle is Seen. It has Golden Wings." http://sabiansymbols.com/oracle/ Imagine being able to lift yourself above the mundane and ordinary to gain a new perspective on your purpose in life. The spiritual integration possible can lead to self-transcendance. Use your creative imagination to elevate and inspire yourself and those around you.
And remember, keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground!
