The Harvest Moon in Aries is making its appearance today! The Harvest Moon is the moon nearest the Autumn Equinox. This month, we get TWO full moons! the first moon is in the sign of Aries, with the second being in the sign of Taurus on Halloween.
Aries is a sign that is all about energy, action, passion, courage, and leadership. Some might thrive this Full Moon energy and love the extra boost of courage and confidence. Others may feel heavier, short-tempered, agitated, impatient, or more impulsive. No matter how the full moon effects you, you can still make the most of this intense lunar energy. Here are some things to do and not to do to help keep your balance through this fiery full moon.
DO - PURSUE YOUR PASSIONS
The energy of Aries is going to bring with it a surge of passionate energy. Think about what lights you up. Whether your passions are clearly known or you're still figuring them out, it's time to spend more energy doing the things you love doing.
DON'T - ACT ON IMPULSE
Aries is the cardinal fire sign, meaning it's the leader of fire energy. It's the initial spark of creativity and inspired action. The energy by nature may have you feeling fired up, but it's important to not act on impulse. Feeling inspired and motivated is fantastic, but it can quickly fall apart if you move too quickly. Be sure to take a moment to pause, take a breath, and reflect before jumping into anything.
DO - PUT YOURSELF FIRST
Aries is individualistic and finds value in self determination and independence. This lunar energy may be calling you to focus your attention towards the self and being assertive with your needs. It's important to listen and to honor these needs. After all, how can you work towards your dreams or help others if you haven't tended to the self first? Tune in and care for yourself the best way you know how.
DON'T - OVERDO IT
Focusing on the self does come with the potential of a slippery slope into selfish behavior. This kind of mindset could lead to imbalances in your relationships, like upholding unrealistic expectations and boundaries of others. Fortunately, the sun being in Libra can help with this. It's important to remember that it isn't you vs. the world. We need to unify now more than ever, so make sure you're helping yourself so you can help the collective.
DO - EMBRACE THE INNER WARRIOR
Aries is the embodiment of the warrior: strong, determined, fearless, and a true leader. Now is the time to stand up and fight for what you believe in. Be vocal and firm in your beliefs. Confidence and action are contagious and others will notice your strength and may follow suit.
DON'T - FUEL THE FIRE
Heightened energy may lead to heightened tensions. Don't let your anger or frustrations get the better of you! Stay clear of unnecessary drama. This is not the best way to spend your Aries energy.
Ultimately, the best thing you can do is keep focus on what's important to you and proceed with caution with everything else. I hope you all enjoy this full moon!
