The Full Moon in Aries will occur at 10:50 pm E.S.T. on September 27, 2015. In addition to this Moon being called a Blood Moon, it is also the last of four ‘Supermoons’ this year. The cherry on top of this is that there is a Lunar Eclipse at the start of the Full Moon time. The Moon, in the astrological sign of Aries, the Ram, might foretell how this Lunar eclipse will impact some of us – with a head butting in the seat of our pants! The sign of Aries represents the beginning of early Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and with spring is a sense of renewal and rebirth. There is this sense of rebirth going on and also other factors at play now.
The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is at 5 degrees Aries and with the Sun being at 5 degrees in Libra, the Scales, you may see many signs that balance is coming into play. Certainly we have seen a lot of political changes recently with the Pope visiting the United States and John Boehner announcing his departure as Speaker of the House, but also remember this is the time of year for Sukkot, which for many devout Jews, is a time to reconcile old debts and cancel out the remaining ones. It is also a time to not fertilize the fields and allow them to rest, or lay fallow, this year. This could also be true of other ‘fields’ such as investments and opportunities as well.
Other planetary influences at play is that all four Lunar eclipses have been in the signs of Aries and Libra. Think of this as the delivery man ringing your doorbell over and over. Can you get the message? These Eclipses will hit those who are Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) or those who have those signs in their Moon or Ascendant placement, meaning a great number of us! The best message to follow here is that you do not have to go “it” alone and consider your role that you play in your personal relationships. Is this how you really want to be viewed?
The energy of Aries, a “Cardinal” Fire sign, is spirited, energetic, innovating and creative and this Full Moon time is considered an excellent time to create candle spells to ‘banish’ or ‘reverse’ situations in your life. The Full Moon in Aries is considered excellent for ‘exorcisms’ and making changes and clearing out the old status quo. Be careful when handling sharp objects and above all, keep your COOL!
The next New Moon occurs on October 12, 2015.
