Today at 6:50pm MT there will be a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Aries. This Moon is also a Super Moon, the closest Super Moon of this year due to the elliptical orbit of the Moon. When the Moon is so close to the Earth, the effect on the tides and our consciousness is greater. Two more things that add extra potency to this lunation is that it is the fourth of four total lunar eclipses which is called a tetrad, and that it occurs very close to the Equinox, a time of increased openness and cosmic energy flow.
All Full Moons are a time when emotions intensify, realizations can be very clear, circumstances can culminate, and many times we then make a commitment, take an action, move forward or let go of a given situation. This Moon in the sign of Aries, creates an opposition with the Sun in Libra and the dynamic is between independence and inter-dependence. Aries is the passionate Warrior and Libra is the gracious Peacemaker. Aries is “I”, and Libra is “We”. This opens us and directs our attention to the importance of balancing the needs we have with the needs of others.
Relationships are on the front burner during this time, even more so as Mercury is currently retrograde in the sign of Libra, bringing the need for deep reflection on relationships. This Moon brings us all to an awareness that within our individual lives and the collective, the importance of interconnectedness. That although it is important to have a clear sense of self and the ability to stand strong, we are all in this together, that we are not here alone.
When we are in a true partnership, romantic or otherwise, each person becomes more of who they are meant to be. The relationship is supportive, empowering and life affirming, with healthy space and shared commitment that can weather the storms of life and come out stronger.
Do keep in mind that this very powerful Moon in Aries can bring up fears, frustrations, and anger and in any communications with others, express your truth with honesty and compassion to create a resolve that is mutually understood.
Whatever emotions or issues this Moon stirs up, are what will no longer wait and is in the forefront of requiring our attention. There is a sense or needing to release the fear and move beyond into the unknown and claim a different outcome. This inner process calls for our own healing that we then can bring to others. There is something transformational on the other side of fear. Its name is Love….
