Libra-Aries Full Moon


Aries Full Moon 2012 by Cathy Pagano/Kepler

   This Aries Full Moon is probably the most intense full moon we've experienced in a while.   Why?   Because it is energized by the Pluto/Uranus square that occurred on September 18-19th.    Leading up to the second of seven challenges between the planet of revolution and the planet of evolution, we just came out of a week of watching the world in turmoil once again while the "puppet masters' fall apart as their secret beliefs are revealed again and again. Patriarchy's minions keep delivering their disjointed, twisted version of reality so there can be no mistaking the stakes.   If we have a new vision of life on our beautiful mother Earth, we have to stand up for it now.   For more on this potent astrological energy, see my Wisdom-of-Astrology blog.

  This Aries Full Moon is within 1* of Uranus in Aries.   Uranus, the energy of the higher Mind or archetypal plane, is working with the Aries' need to find his identity and his purpose in life.   Aries asks, "Who am I?"   His answer is, "I am. . ."   Uranus says, "Who are you in the depths of your soul and in the heights of your spirit?"  

Revolutionary Uranus wants us to take ourselves and our life seriously.   He admonishes us, "Stop living a provisional life, one which leaves you unsatisfied and wanting more."   Why do we live a - life that doesn't engage our souls? Why aren't we living an engaged, passionate, creative life which is infused with soul?   Uranus in Aries invites us to explore the archetypal dimensions of our life and to consciously re-connect with the archetypal power of our soulful identity.   We might discover a leader, a builder, a thinker, a creator, a helper, a partner, an artist, a dreamer, a bard, a mystic.   Answering the call of our archetype is our hero's journey.

When that quest is fused with the Aries Full Moon awareness, you can be sure everyone will be feeling their power.   But with the Sun in Libra, we'll have to temper our Aries identity with a desire to be fair and just with other people.   Too much ego-self leads to imbalanced relationships.   Too much self-sacrifice leads to imbalanced relationships.   A true sense of your Self and of the other person's Self will result in a creative mix that achieves balance, beauty and harmony.

Now add to that the challenge of letting go of the old rules of patriarchy which are really entrenched behavior beliefs (Pluto in Capricorn squaring the Sun and Moon/Uranus), and we are in for an interesting weekend.   While many astrologers see the possibility of sudden upsets and surprises for this weekend, this full moon also holds the promise of doing something uniquely different.   Just remember that whatever it is will be unpredictable, so just go with the flow and try to keep your balance.   We could actually experience deep change this week. The question is, can we step outside of our usual behavior patterns, refuse to let our buttons be pushed and engage with people from the deep Self?  

So this full moon, embrace the new, the unpredictable, the original.   Stay true to yourself and give the other person a little slack.   They're going through the same things too.   Don't forget to ground and center -- you'll handle the energies better if you do.

Aries Full Moon, September 29-30, 2012

This electrifying Aries Full Moon occurs on Saturday, September 29 at 8:20pm PDT/ 11:20pm EDT and on September 30 at 3:20am GMT.  

The Sabian symbol for the Sun at 8*Libra is: A blazing fireplace in a deserted home.     In many ways, we have all "deserted' our true home -- our inner essence.   But just because we've deserted our Self doesn't mean that it still isn't there.   The fire burns brightly, giving us hope of light and warmth if we turn toward it.   We just have to have the courage (which we'll get from the Aries Moon/Uranus) to return to the Source.

The Sabian symbol for the Moon at 8* Aries is: A large woman's hat with streamers blown by an East wind.   Hats protect us from the elements as well as contain the energy of our crown chakras.   They symbolize the focused power our thoughts.   The streamers are the outward sign of the strong East wind that blows new insights, new energies and radical changes through our minds.   We need new "rules' if we want to recreate a society, since with Libra, we start the second half of the year where we draw together and pool our resources.  

The Sabian symbol for Uranus at 7* Aries is: A man succeeds in expressing himself simultaneously in two realms.   We have to learn how to work in both the spirit realm and in the material realm.   Once we remember that the material world is the form that spirit wants to manifest in, we might take responsibility for the forms we create.

Other Astrological Energies at Play

The other energies surrounding this intense full moon involve both the planetary rulers of this full moon as well as the Moon's Nodes: Venus rules the Sun in Libra and the South Node in Taurus while Mars rules the Moon in Aries and the North Node in Scorpio.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
