Behold the coming Full Moon
Ah! Behold the coming Full Moon. A Full Moon week is always exciting – tensions rise and tempers flare, sure, but they are turning points for us all. We measure out our lives in Full Moons, in many ways. Even as young children, we are taught “look at the Moon!” and somehow most of us grow up feeling connected to it somehow. Working with the Moon cycles is actually something wise women have done for thousands of years – though of course the practise when underground following the Burning Times!
What’s the Full Moon about?
The Full Moon is the climax of the lunar cycle. It’s when the Moon is completely round, of course, and it happens when the Sun and the Moon are on exact opposite sides of the zodiac. Symbolically it means we have all made it to another Full Moon and it’s time to let stuff go that we no longer need.
If you are a part of the new growing trend towards minimalism, then use each Full Moon to take stock of what you need to declutter in your house and your life.
On an emotional level, it’s also time to let stuff go. So what are you releasing this week? Write it down on a list and burn it, preferably on the night of the Full Moon. The exact time of it wherever you are is here moonmessages.com/moontimes
This particular Full Moon…
The particular flavour of this Full Moon is potentially healing. If you have to forgive someone now – or forgive yourself – you have super lunar support.
Note that the first astro-combo after the Full Moon this time around is a clash between the Sun and Saturn. This can certainly heighten the strains of the week. Talking things sooner rather than later is strongly advised!
An affirmation for the Full Moon
If you would like to work with the Full Moon to divest yourself of dramas just say this over and again on the night when the Moon is at her fullest; “I forgive you, I forgive me, I forgive positively everyone I know and everyone who knows me, in all directions of time!”
Do you want to work with the Full Moon for real? I’ve created a very simple A4 PDF designed to help you work with the energies of the Full Moon in Aries. It’s the first Full Moon of the new lunar cycle (Aries being the first sign of the zodiac) so sign up here now – it’s free!
Money issues could flare up this week, in your personal or professional life. Try not to allow arguments to follow suit. Rather consider any dramas you have to do with cash like a sort of springboard to sorting the issues out once and for all. The answer to any dramas this week is – more than ever – to communicate what you’re feeling. Mercury in your Communications Zone is in good shape. There should be almost nothing you can’t talk through now.
This month,learning is top of the agenda. This might mean you’re already in full-time education of course, of that you’re going back to it, perhaps signing up for a course to help further your qualifications.
Communication planet Mercury is in the cleverest sector of your chart for much of the month, and a New Moon in the studious sign Virgo on the 10th is brimming with academic genius. It’s an important month to take expert advice too or at the very least talk through any dilemmas or issues you have. If you’re studying, you can excel now.
Meeting new people and going new places awakens your curious gene and there’s much to learn when you look around you and keep an open mind. New connections make a big difference to your ability to make progress so be friendly and sociable. You don’t know what people are really like unless you make an effort to get to know them better.
Your love stars are pulsating with passion now especially once Venus enters sexy Scorpio on the 9th. Yet it depends on the state of a current relationship whether love is to expand or decrease. September 12 looks amazing for any Cancerians who have been working on an important relationship, be it familial, a friendship, a romance or a professional partnership. The lucky planet Jupiter will trigger Pluto in your Zone of Other People. Even relationships which have been really troubled can turn around now.
You’re a moon baby, i.e. ruled by the Moon and the Full Moon period is when your emotions are at their most sensitive. If your family aren’t happy with your choice of partner, this is when you’ll feel it the most. There are some potential challenges coming your way especially close to the Full Moon on the 25th.
Look out for a guru type or influential figure whose woo woo wisdom enables you to birth something dear to your heart. It might be a baby or it could be a creative project or prestigious event.
Prepare for a year of lessons, love life ructions and excitement. This year, for the first time in around 35 years, we have the two mega planets Saturn and Pluto in the same sign at the same time. And – drumroll please – the sign they are in is your opposite sign, Capricorn which is also know as your Love Zone!read more
