On Thursday, October 5 (11:40am PST and 2:40pm EST), the full moon shines passionately and intensely in the courageous and fiery sign of Aries. The sign that is fierce, full of energy, unwilling to back down, and has the heart of a warrior. She is the sign that is filled with an unlimited source of pure will. She carries with her a power that can withstand any battle, any mountain, and face any fear because underneath that power is a will that is determined to live. In short, she is here to learn and master the art of courage. How does one develop courage, you ask? Well, the simple answer is, be willing to face a lot of fears. It is through facing these fears that she will develop the essence of her warrior spirit and become a mighty force in her world. Can you feel the Aries energy building?

With all of this fiery and bold energy illuminating the full moon, ask yourself: What fears are lurking inside me right now? What obstacles are now ready for my full attention? Where do I need some courage in my life? What mountain do I need to climb? If I feel triggered, what part of me wants to respond? What are these triggers trying to teach me?

Some of us might want to brace ourselves during the energies of this full moon because the intensity of our emotions will certainly rise. The good news is that Aries is about action. So if there’s something you want to get done and need the extra motivation – well, now is the time. Just remember that when you have all this extra, empowered energy, you might act before you think. This might get you in trouble and so it’s important to step back and attune yourself to what it is that you want to accomplish in the long run. Luckily, Mars, the ruler of Aries, is in the sign of Virgo and will assist you once you take a step back.

If you can channel all of this bold, daring, and fierce energy into facing what has scared you from pursuing your dreams, then you might just maybe be able to begin moving forward to what your heart truly desires and longs to create. You will certainly have the energy and there’s no doubt that you’ll have access to a tremendous amount of power, but with the Sun and Mercury currently in Libra and opposing this full moon and Mars conjunct Venus in Virgo, we must remember to step back and take a look at all sides before rushing in and bulldozing over whatever is in front of us.

If you find yourself triggered during this full moon, whether from a relationship or something that feels out of your control, try to see if you can locate what’s been brewing underneath the trigger. Additionally, see if you can become aware of what fears come up, what obstacles remain in front of you, and begin to notice any patterns that you are falling back into.

While all of us will feel the intense energy of Aires during this full moon, we will each experience it differently depending on where Aries is located in our chart and how our natal planets are affected by the current energies. If you are interested in a more personalized reading,
