October breezes in on the wings of a special Aries full moon lit up by the Libra sun. This is the harvest moon; it is big bright and closest to the fall equinox. The light of the harvest moon traditionally gave farmers more time to harvest their crops. This full moon in Aries signals a once a year time for closures and endings to struggles and competitions. This October is blessed with a second full moon, with a once in a lifetime opportunity to harvest whatever has come to fruition in your life. A full moon occurs when the Sun in Libra forms an opposition to the moon in Aries. This is a time of culmination and promise.
The Aries-Libra polarity is a relationship axis where Aries represents the self and Libra the other. Aries is all about self-assertion, Libra is about compromise. The Libra Sun reminds us to be diplomatic and fair minded when dealing with the needs of others. This full moon invites us to find the balance between these two energies. The full moon is an emotional declaration. Something has been building inside us and now the cosmos fairly demands that we let it go. Take some time to contemplate the “you” versus “me” in your personal relationships. Are you making time for yourself? Are you setting clear boundaries and protecting your time and energy? Always find time to honor yourself within your relationship with others. Take time to complete your full moon ritual.
