Equinox/Full Moon in Aries – Sept 23, ’10
Everyone is breathing a sigh of relief now that Mercury has gone Direct, which allows for greater ease and flow of all communications. Last week Pluto (planet of transformation and power) stationed to go Direct as well, which gives us a great big PUSH forward.
After moving through the wormhole over the summer (the Eclipses and Cardinal Cross) into your New Reality and finding your “sea legs,” then revising that which needed correction during Mercury Retrograde, it is now time for the next wave of activity – if I had to give it a name, I’d call it The Start of Something New.
On the Fall Equinox (Wed, Sept 22nd at 11:09pm ET), we begin the Fall season so focus your energy, set your intentions and decide what you will create. Then do some ritual to support the manifestation of your vision, in addition to taking practical actions. (FYI – writing your intentions is a ritual in case you need a suggestion.)
The Full Moon in Aries occurs right after the Equinox – on Thurs, Sept 23rd at 5:17am ET. The Full Moon is when things come to light and it’s also the culmination of things. The emotional energy has been amping up as always approaching a Full Moon, and tensions may run high, so easy does it.
Aries is the maverick, the pioneer, the warrior, and with this energy, you want it YOUR way – direct, energetic and action-oriented. Libra is the other-oriented, sign of peace, harmony, balance and beauty. Libra is “the mirror,” who desires compromise, connection and loves a win-win (a Libra dream come true!)
The task at hand is to assess your ability to take action and be assertive without being a steamroller vs. your willingness to compromise without sacrificing your own needs. Check in with yourself and see what needs adjusting so that your masculine/feminine aspects are in balance, therefore making you more effective in your life as well as in the world.
Whatever you’re attracting in your life that you don’t like is mirroring some part of you that’s unconscious, and you’ve called it in to awaken you. Pluto is squaring the Equinox and Full Moon, so when people or aspects of life feel oppressive, slow down and check in with yourself.
Have you given up your power and called in a bully or manipulator to reflect that? Or are you the dominant player? These are just two sides of one coin and Pluto often brings power struggles. If you’re confronted with this energy, don’t engage. I suggest you withdraw and go within to discern what part you play in this drama.
As Dr. Phil says, “You can’t fix what you don’t acknowledge.” You may discover that you are operating in ways that surprise or even horrify you – not at all what you intended – but don’t resist the information. Awareness provides you with the opportunity to heal shadow energy – and please seek help if you aren’t able to correct it yourself.
Jupiter (expansion), Uranus (change) and the Moon (home/needs) oppose the Sun on the Equinox and Full Moon, indicating a strong drive for freedom and authenticity wherever you feel trapped by life circumstances. Be brave and make those revolutionary changes – take the conscious leap!
As you begin this new season honor yourself and treasure your relationships. All is in Divine order.
