“An adventure awaits…and I’m off to find it!”
I woke up on the couch last night at 3 am (the “witching hour”), and snuck outside to get a glimpse and a picture of the full Aries moon, in all her majesty. In these last 3 days leading up to the full moon, I have done three things I truly NEVER thought I would, for a variety of reasons. It’s liberating and terrifying and I feel like I might need to warn y’all to get out my wayyyyyyy.
I kid. The leaps that I took were very calculated and have been growing in the background for a while, but those facts do not take away from the anxiety and fear that come with new directions and personal sovereignty. Aries energy is naturally a bit insecure for that reason…how can you be secure about somethign you’ve NEVER experienced before? In my experience….you cannot and you just gotta go with it.
I feel like I’m embodying the “new direction” opportunity this full moon is bringing us
The Aries energy is about trailblazing into a new direction. Accepting the insecurity that comes with that decision and knowing that you’ll figure it out as you go. Trusting your instincts and the intelligence and wisdom of your body.
This full moon is a type of energetic apex of the year, and we can see this energy rising up through the riots, protests and resistance to oppression that are going on throughout the world.
Here are 3 ways that you can lean into this Aries full moon energy too:
1- Identify where in your life you are needing a “new beginning”. This is something that has likely been brewing for a long time, so this is your chance to take your shot.
This life is YOURS.
(and trust that I’m leaping with you too #sosscaredInearlypoopedmypants)
2- Understand what your emotional needs are, and go heavy on the self care and especially the self kindness. This full moon in conjunct Chiron, which means that this change won’t be easy, but it is integral to your healing. A good friend of mine told me last week to “focus on the space you are creating….this space is now ready for something new and more fitting to come in for you.”
The truth is that no matter what, we will ALL go through hard things in life, and the fact that you didn’t go for your heart’s deepest desires does not excuse you from the trials of earth life (sorry).
Know that if you are willing to take this big leap- a leap that will rock your sense of inner security (ie: the moon) – growth and progress is unavoidable.
- Know what’s most important to you. With Venus right up close to the sun, there is light and radiance being shone on your most sacred values. Let your understanding of these sacred values, and your intentions to build your best life be your travel buddies and your reminder of why you are mustering up your courage to go a new direction.
The ongoing 2022 square between Saturn and Uranus continues, the back and forth between tradition and innovation. Do I want to stay in security (where it is safe, but also stifling), or do I want to fracture the established pattern (which is exhilarating and life giving, but, like, hella scary and unknown)?
Aries energy is COURAGEOUS. TRAILBLAZING. INNOVATING. ENTERPRISING. CONNECTED TO BODY. FOCUSED ON SELF….lean into these qualities
Aries energy is also IMPULSIVE. FEISTY. STUBBORN. WARRING…be on guard for these qualities.
he irony of this full moon, specifically, is that when the moon is full, we are being told that something has come to a completion. In this situation, we are marking both an ending, and a new beginning with the pivotal, fiery, heart connected flow of Aries.
Wishing you all the biggest courage to pursue all your best dreams.
As for me?…. like always…
