Tapping into the energy of Aries Full Moon with mindful self-care ritual
The Full Moon ritual helps us awaken the energy that is brought to us by the Full Moon. Every Zodiac season delivers us Full Moon in the opposite sign and through self-care practices, we can adequately balance these opposing energies. While Moon transits the Libra sign, we are welcoming Aries Full Moon on 1st October. This is the moment to feel the fullness of the Moon, while she illuminates some part of our lives. We gain greater awareness of our life circumstances and we are invited to take a deeper look at where we are with our vision we hold for ourselves. This is the moment to pause, reflect, and release all that feels like a burden. On the New Moon, we plant new seeds, while Full Moon sheds a light on the progress of our intentions.
Every Full Moon brings a new set of energies and understandings to work with. This is an opportunity to refresh our self-care and introduce nurturing practices that will help us grow and evolve into the best version of ourselves we can be.
Aries energy is entrepreneurial, pioneering full of passion and inspiration. As it is the first of the Zodiac signs, we are reminded that we have a purpose in life and our task is to discover that which brings us the greatest joy and passion. Aries Full Moon is here to help us rediscover that long-forgotten spark and realign us with our true essence.
Astrology of the Aries Full Moon
To truly sustain on that path of passion, we have to find ways to fuel and nurture our soul’s needs. Aries sign with her brings the energy of the warrior Goddess that doesn’t complain or retreat in face of adversity – she is ready to fight for what is dearest to her heart. During this Full Moon, awaken this creative energy and see in which way can use her to give you the motivation to walk your soul’s path boldly and confidently as you are brushing off any fear or self-doubt. Lean into your authenticity and while Mars is retrograde in Aries, remember how unique you are and capable of removing any obstacle. Find inspiration in remembering the moments where your independence and self-reliance helped you achieve many accomplishments. You still carry that energy within you – this is the moment to harness that internal power.
Mars forms a beautiful trine with Venus in Leo, asking us to keep our hearts open and soft. As we remember what we love about ourselves, we are nudged into actions that will help us grow and ultimately lead a life that feels good to us.
Additionally, Mars forms a square with a stellium in Capricorn (Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto). These aspects can bring some situations from our past, making us feel restricted somehow in our present situation. That can raise additional anxiety, but the key to working with this energy is through self-discipline and motivation. Change comes from us and we have the power to improve our world. Use this Full Moon to release any of these feelings and align with the highest vibration of Aries, which is motivation and passion.
During this Full Moon be also aware of Aries’ low vibrations – when things don’t go as you desire don’t get easily frustrated, irritated, or angry. Find a productive way to manage your energy through physical exercise, breath work, spending time in nature, and meditation. It is also an opportunity to review how you define your priorities and time for self-care. Dedicate that special time to yourself and set healthy boundaries that will allow you space and time to maneuver: to work through your emotions and ground yourself so any anger or frustration can dissipate out of your awareness. Use the positive energy of the Aries to align with your purpose and pursue your passions.
