The full moon in Aries, also known as the Hunter’s Moon, is happening Sunday, October 9, 2022 at 1:55 pm PT.
What is the Full Moon in Aries? How does it affect us?
The full moon is an event that occurs when the sun fully illuminates the moon. The sun and moon are in opposition during this time, which can reveal energies that need to be evaluated, balanced, and released.
The full moon is often a time of reflection where we can look at what we've accomplished and release anything that is no longer serving us. This can be a powerful time to clear blockages so we can be ready to manifest for the next new moon.
Aries is the first zodiac sign in the astral wheel. Represented by the archetype of the Warrior, Aries is a sign that represents new beginnings. Brave and not afraid of a challenge, they view life as an adventure (or a battlefield). Aries and the moon make an interesting pair, as Aries is all about action while the moon asks for reflection.
The full moon in Aries is asking us to reflect on—
Feelings of envy and jealousy. It’s easier to be a passive witness than an active participant. We may find ourselves feeling envious or jealous over another person’s situation because we secretly desire their exact scenario. Whether it be a better job or better relationship, this full moon is asking us to consider what we can do to manifest the reality we desire.
Making every creative project a “business opportunity.” As children, we were encouraged to try as many things as possible with no judgment or pressure. However, in our later years, we’ve been told to monetize everything we do because we can. Now, it becomes almost impossible to avoid the thought, “I wonder if this hobby could bring in money.” Release the pressure of having to make money off of what you enjoy and spend more time connecting with your hobbies for fun.
Our relationship with action. We’ve been conditioned to believe that every thought warrants immediate action. That sense of urgency is our ego speaking out of fear or avoidance (e.g. boredom, constant need for stimulation). Reflect on your relationship with your thoughts and how your thoughts may trigger you to take unnecessary action. The difference between forced action and inspired action is subtle, but the biggest differentiation is that inspired action is never driven by emotional intensity.
While the full moon’s energy lasts for 3 days, we can work with its energy for the next 14 days. This gives us enough time to reset our energy and get clear on what we'd like to manifest for the next new moon.
