Full Moon in Aries on 25th September 2018


Brave, Initiate Action, Impulsive, Fiery

On September 25th there’ll be a Full Moon in Aries, but before look what the Aries Full Moon means let’s look a little closer at the Moon and what if represents in astrology.

The Moon in Astrology

The Moon represents our inner world: our emotions, mood, feelings of inner security, sensitivity, the unconscious and intuition.  In astrology the Moon is one of the most important planets as she is also mother, home, family, feelings and habits and how we instinctually react to life.

In your natal chart (the time of your birth) the Moons location tells you your emotional tendencies while the Moon’s current location as its moving across sky impacts on our feelings and behaviour in the present.   She speaks to us in our feelings.

About the Sign of Aries

Known as one of the Trailblazers of the zodiac (others being Leo and Sagittarius) Aries is ready to charge in and conquer any challenge that it meets.  Always wanting to be out in front they are equipped with great courage forging new ground whether that’s ideas, covering new territory with passion.  It is the fearless warrior, incredibly brave and ready to lead the way.

Aries loves to be first, it can be fiery and impulsive, on one hand acting and speaking first without thinking, and this can get Aries in trouble as they can be seen bossy and pushy. It would be wise for Aries to learn to think before acting or reacting.

On the other hand, Aries is also first to help, they are the ones who will dive into a sea of sharks or blazing fire to rescue.  Aries will go where few dare to venture and will take on life head on.

 Full Moon in Aries

No matter where our Sun or Moon is in our Natal Chart (Birth Chart), we are all effected by the Full Moon in Aries.

You’ll feel your life force and vitality during the Full Moon in Aries encouraging you to be yourself.  If you don’t allow this freedom you may feel frustrated, impatient and even depressed because you are suppressing or restricting your life force.  The trouble is everyone else is feeling similarly to you and we have a lot of loose cannons on deck.

Be mindful of rash behaviour and actions, take a moment to consider the consequences. Finding balance is the key, too much Aries can cause havoc that’s why its counterbalance sign is Libra.  Take some deep breaths to calm yourself and slow down, this will help you to avoid unnecessary accidents and possible conflicts.   Things can blow up in an instant however the good news is they can end as quickly as they started.

The Aries Full Moon gives you a chance to harvest the seeds you planted in the Aries New Moon approximately six months ago.  So, things that were brand new back then are now either coming to fruition and may be working or not.   If they are working it’s time to harvest as we have to do something, if not it’s time to let them go and move on to other things.

Be aware of your comments, spontaneity can sometimes contribute to unkind and insensitive remarks without thinking of the consequences after.   Watch your temper and avoid careless behaviour in your reactions.  Stop, take time, again take a breath or many breaths to calm down and consider things before making any decisions.

At this time the Aries Full Moon faces the Sun in Libra, its opposite sign.  The fiery spontaneous energy of Aries when tipped to far needs to find balance hence it’s opposite sign is Libra which is all about balance.   Balancing the energy is necessary and will help to keep us on an even keel.

Suggestions for You to Do During the Aries New Moon

  • Put into action the harvesting of seeds planted in Aries New Moon

  • If the seeds planted have not come to fruition let them go and move on

  • Watch your temper

  • Take time to calm down where necessary to avoid insensitive comments

  • Make time for your loved ones

  • Be prepared to speak your truth and be honest with yourself

  • Try to refrain from arguments

  • Meditate

How the New Moon in Aries Coincides with Your Cycle

Day 6: Your Oestrogen has been rising over the past few days, but today it really starts to take off, the reason is nothing short of incredible.  The strongest form of Oestrogen in your body isn’t released by your brain but by the little cells in your ovary.  The biology of it is a bit complex but the effect on your body is clear – watch for special feelings of adventurousness.

Day 7: Rising Oestrogen is amping up your ability to focus and make quick decisions. Coupled with the New Moon in Aries be aware this may also add to the fuel, take time to keep in mind the consequences of your decisions.  Are you staying true to yourself? Is what you are doing now making you feel energised?  You’ll certainly feel the difference if you channel New Moon Aries into something you are passionate about.

Days 18 – 28: You may only be on Day 18 but it’s worth noting to prepare for PMS in the following days.  Symptoms generally make themselves known around 5-10 days before your period and dissipate with it’s start or soon after, some say almost instantaneously.

 This can be a time when everything blows up our skin and our emotions.  PMS can be an extremely intense time.  Combined with the fiery energy of New Moon Aries you may need to watch your temper and be aware of your reactions.  Hurtful and insensitive words  cannot be undone.
