SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE… The moon moves into its peak apex of the month at 10:57am EST on Wednesday, October 20th in Aries. While retrograded Mercury stationed direct and back out of retrograde on October 18th, we are still in the post shadow phase during this Full Moon. With the energy of Aries helping to propel us forward, there is opportunity for much needed movement. Named the Hunter’s Moon in the Farmer’s Almanac, this moon is traditionally a time for harvest and for the hunters and community to begin to stock up on food and supplies for the coming winter.
This is a time to assess all that has been learned over the summer and especially these last few weeks of Mercury Retrograde, and begin to put wheels in motion for the future you desire.
OVERALL THEMES TO EXPLORE…Action, Initiation, Fresh Start
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, bridging the world of ether and matter and is quite literally a fire starter. This fire sign gets the train rolling! Use this energy to move forward on new projects, ideas or big transitional moves you have been putting off. There is always a great deal of energy available to us during a Full Moon, and this Aries Full Moon is supercharged to help move any stagnant energy in your body and in your life. Release what no longer resonates and get ready for a fresh start.
EXCELLENT TIME TO… Move your body, make some changes, and take deep breaths!
Change and movement is upon us. This may look as simple as rearranging some furniture or art in your home or as big as even moving homes or cities! Remember this fire energy helps to clear stagnation and supports forward movement, so allow the energy to support you in a fresh start but be careful not to get overwhelmed by the excess energy.
Take deep breaths throughout your day and visualize your breath clearing, cleansing and opening up your mind and body into new possibilities and potential timelines. This is a time to change it up!
My book Crystal Healing for Women contains a potent meditation called ‘Bringing Yourself Into Alignment’ Ritual that is supportive in coming into highest alignment in times of transformation.
