Aries is the first sign of the natural Zodiac – “I am.” A Cardinal Fire sign ruled by Mars and represents Personal Self, appearance, temperament, child within and health. Aries is the pioneer, warrior, daredevil and the bully. Symbolized by the Ram, Aries can be compulsive, hot-headed and “ram” things through without thinking it through – not the most patient of energies! Rules the head and face and common ailments with headaches or sinus are often caused by fear, self-criticism and being annoyed. Common healing herbs are basil, peppermint, thyme, lavender, rosemary, and horseradish root. Crystals falling under Aries rulership are diamond, ruby, hematite, carnelian, and bloodstone. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon at sixteen degrees of Aries is, “Brownies dancing in the setting sun.” Life is an ongoing opportunity to appreciate the pure form of Source and dance with nature.
The Aries Full Moon is holding hands with Chiron and reminds us to have a broader perspective of the people and situations in life. Chiron is the wounded healer, and it is through the pain that resilience and compassion are found. Finding common ground with loved ones and peers nurtures connection and patience. Mars in Gemini aspects the Libra Sun and Venus and will have us willing to let go of Ego and find compromise in relationships. Arguments and unfortunate events of the past exist to learn forgiveness or at least dissolve hard feelings to be in acceptance without negativity. Appreciate every ending as a new beginning.
Jupiter in Aries creates life changing expansion and opportunities to travel, seek Higher knowledge and find the truth. Final judgements and legal proceedings will experience fire works and may be hard to believe. The hard-headed Ram is challenged to find acceptance and patience should information differ from a long-held opinion or belief. Reconnect with the child within to experience a renewal of perspective and ease up on rigid or outdated behaviors. Children are fascinated by simple things and fearless to explore. Recognize that it is never too late to have a happy second childhood – simply make the choice.
Practice watching your thoughts when triggered and take extra time to think through the exact emotion coming up to heal. Walks in nature, reinventing a favorite activity from childhood and remembering we are all connected Spiritually teach patience. An Aries Full Moon teaches healthier ways to process anger and embrace emotional maturity by observing the chaos instead of getting swept up in mean or hurtful drama. What makes your Soul feel full? Connect with your own inner lover and indulge in the sensual side of life – Mars is the lover or the fighter – you choose.
