This week plays host to a particularly powerful full moon in Aries, cardinal with a past-exact cardinal t-square in play. Mercury puts paid to its retrograde mischief (Monday), and Libra Mars gets its groove on with Jupiter and Pluto.
In addition, the Sun tours the final degrees of Libra with a move to Scorpio late Friday night, merry a day after Mars completes its square to Scorpio-ruler Pluto.
That’s a lot of movement, a ton of dynamic and powerful potential.
On Monday with a stationing Mercury, Libra Mars perfects an afternoon trine to Jupiter: heightened and increased action, intellectual exploration and expansion, aha moments that are ultimately actionable.
The Mars-ruled Aries Moon sextiles Saturn then heads into conjunction with Chiron and opposition to Mercury as Mercury moves direct. Authentic, honest action can be planned now – or an earlier plan implemented or re-imagined for implementation.
There’s likely to be invigorating news and welcome ideas. One such idea would likely pertain to how you may put your own healing to use in helping others or healing relationships.
In all negotiations, take the high road and speak with kindness and a polite attitude. This is particularly purposeful (cardinal) as rage and accidental or intentional violence are just below the surface.
Purging is also another possibility with this energy. Remember that it feels good once you’ve purged, even if it doesn’t as it happens.
Don’t stand in the way of something big or heavy. If it doesn’t go, don’t force it… unless not doing so is dangerous.
Road rage has been building all the last week. Can you feel it?
Tuesday the Aries Moon trines Venus in Sagittarius and sextiles Sadge-ruler Jupiter in future-oriented Aquarius. The mood is HYPED, hopeful but also banging. We want, we need, and it feels GOOD. Perhaps we acquire.
The Moon bounces on through the day and into the night where it heads into opposition with Mars and square to Pluto – with Mars’ applying square to Pluto, this brings rough t-square energy. While the vomitous violence is not at its peak yet, the mood to move exacerbates it to the point of shaking something loose. Be mindful of your own and others’ safety. Know your own strength and don’t underestimate risk. Otherwise, this can be very freeing or empowering once engaged or implemented.
Wednesday morning, the Aries Moon moves into full moon opposition to the Libra Sun, still holding that t-square energy with a past-exact square to Pluto. That sounds scary after all I’ve just said, but I’m reading it differently here: Something’s gotta give. And it does. NEED, it needs to give and it’s been a long time coming.
We’ve been too “nice” or tried too many things that just didn’t work – likely due to timing. BAM. Now we get that movement and do we ever. Something we need to move past will end. Good riddance. Not to bad rubbish; some of this we LOVE. But it’s time. And there’s going to be a lot of relief associated.
We get some tingly Aries Moon time with no aspects till the Moon heads to Taurus in the afternoon. It then heads into square with Saturn (exact overnight), not a particular mood builder, but definitely a bit of stability.
Early Thursday, the Moon moves through and past the square to Saturn and into conjunction with Uranus by afternoon. Any heaviness gives way to a charge, one which emanates from what is possible now as Mars completes its square to Pluto.
Friday’s Taurus Moon sextiles Neptune and squares Jupiter before going on to trine Pluto. The Taurus-Venusy mood enjoys a bit of welcome and sweet anesthetic or mood altering tipple even as Jupiter pours on the juice. That trine to Pluto feels mighty sexy on the heels of a release of responsibility and that only increases as the Sun hits Scorpio for a deepening of our autumnal, leaf-strewn path.
The Aries full moon takes place at 27 degrees. Where does this hit you chart? Are you feeling any of that Marsy intensity building around you?
