Aries Full Moon: The Initiation
New seasons bring new beginnings, and the same can be said for fall. Yes, it’s a time of shedding and release, but where ever a space is made, something new can come in.
This Full Moon in Aries gives us the invitation to plan ahead. This moon will take place on Oct 9, 2022 at 1:55 p.m. PST/ 4:55 p.m. EST. The influence of the moon is an external reminder to turn inwards. It gives us all a cycle to connect to, whether we bleed or not. As our energy waxes and wanes on the inside, we get to see this reflected in the lunar cycle.
As you bask beneath the upcoming full moon, consider going inward and taking inventory around what you need to release in order to make space for the energy you’ll be building up come the new moon.
October 2022 Aries Full Moon Insights
This Aries full moon is going to be inspired by the energy of Libra, because it is illuminated by the Libra sun.
This means that balance is going to be the name of the game. When we are called to start something new, we must think about how it impacts the balance of our lives.
When you start a new job, you might think about how well that job will fit into your current lifestyle. If for some reason, it doesn’t, you may have to make shifts in order to maintain a healthy balance.
The same can be said for relationships. When we connect with someone new and start to spend more time with them, there is a period of time where we have to find the balance between our old solo lives, and our new lives with a partner.
Aries is a cardinal fire sign, so it’s all about new beginnings, and at times those beginnings can happen very quickly.
Aries also governs the energies of vitality, instinct, motivation, and taking action.
We are entering a time of year where much takes place beneath the surface.
Old growth is cleared out, and new seeds are planted. Without this energy, things can become stagnant and outdated.
This full moon will present as a powerful time to plan. Clear out what needs to be released and use that motivational energy to plan for what you’re calling in. Set the vision and let your creative spirit lead the way!
