Full Moon in Aries: Inner Empowerment – Harvest Moon

On October 1, at 5:05 PM ET, the Full Harvest Moon in Aries kicks off the new month, inviting more excitement, zeal, and passion into our lives.

Full Moons represent the peak phase of the lunar cycle, a moment of blossoming, culmination, and maturation of our efforts. They offer us the chance to release the results of our work, to share it with the collective, and to let go of everything that we no longer want to carry.

Yet, Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac: this infuses the Harvest Moon with the energy of a new beginning, it increases our desire for freedom, new experiences, and lowers our tolerance for boredom and limitations.

The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox. In the Northern Hemisphere, this event signals the beginning of Fall and the need to harvest the crops: it held a specific significance for ancient peoples, and it was considered a very karmic time.

In the Southern Hemisphere, this Full Moon announces the beginning of Spring and the end of the hardships of Winter. It represents the perfect moment to share any project that was born through the reflection and introspection that took place during the colder months.

To celebrate the arrival of this Full Moon, on October 1 at 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live Full Moon in Aries Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

Getting in Touch with our Needs and Desires

 

The Moon at 9°08’ of Aries joins retrograde Chiron and opposes the Sun in Libra, bringing to light relationship dynamics that need to be changed or released, and illuminating wounds related to our self-worth, our sexuality, and our need for freedom.

The opposition between Sun and Moon taking place on any Full Moon always signals a creative tension between what we want to be and what we think we should be. In this case, the Aries-Libra axis is involved: this dynamic brings up a theme of self versus others that strongly plays out in all our relationships.

This Full Moon in Aries reminds us that we need to feel whole, happy, satisfied, and complete within ourselves before we try to achieve those sensations or complete ourselves through our interactions with others. She invites us to cultivate our self-esteem, to develop independence and autonomy, to meet our individual needs and desires before we expect someone else to do so.

 

Full Moon in Aries: Doing More of What We Love 

 

People with their natal Moon in Aries are extremely lively, enthusiastic, passionate, and great motivators who are not afraid of going out of their comfort zone, take risks, and do something completely unfamiliar. The Full Moon in Aries represents an invitation to dedicate more time to what we are passionate about. This cosmic event wants us to do what we love, what makes us shine, what excites us, what makes us feel fully alive, and to dive deeper into it.

full moon in aries Moon Omens

As we consciously cultivate and generate sensations of happiness, love, and personal fulfillment, we naturally shift our frequency, raise our vibration, and invite more of these energies into our lives. What makes you smile? What makes your eyes sparkle? What makes your Soul happy? Do more of that, and you will notice the benefits ripple and expand in all other areas of your life.

 

Asserting ourselves Consciously

 

The Full Moon in Aries illuminates dynamics related to how we channel and release anger and frustration, inviting reflection about immature reactions, impulsive decisions, and behavior patterns that need to be outgrown. Consciously working with the energy of the Full Moon in Aries helps us intentionally direct our willpower and strength, and express our opinions without being harmful or hurtful.

Movement is one of the best ways through which we can harness the intense frequency of this cosmic event and liberate our bodies from stress, anger, tension, and repressed emotion. Dedicating time to anything that supports the balance of our inner masculine and feminine energies will help us act from a place of alignment.

Venus is now transiting the last degrees of Leo and creating a supportive trine to Mars in Aries, ruler of the Full Moon. Together with the positive influence of Mercury in Libra, this alignment will facilitate our relationship dynamics and the constructive communication of our needs, desires, and values to other people.

The Fire Trine between Venus and Mars is a wonderful influence for our romantic and social life: we can easily take advantage of its energy to cultivate a more passionate and enthusiastic attitude in everything we do.

 

Finding Purpose in Hardships

 

This Harvest Full Moon in Aries feels like an open road that we are not allowed to take just yet. Mars is in retrograde motion, transiting his home sign, and he is conjunct Eris, dwarf planet named after the Goddess of Chaos and Discord. Moreover, they both square Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn.

These aspects reflect an amount of frustration and tension that we can’t simply ignore or bypass. The Full Moon offers us the invitation to explore the underlying nervousness, the stress, the anxiety, and the anger, and encourages us to find ways to create something good out of this highly volatile and reactive energy.

We need to be gentle with ourselves in this process and forgive ourselves if sometimes we can’t be our best version, or if we struggle to keep a positive mindset. We will inevitably react on impulse and make mistakes: that’s ok, what matters is that we learn something from it. These are very potent planetary alignments that are not to play with, and we are going to feel their influence in waves for the rest of 2020.

We may have the sensation that we have no control over the circumstances, the limitations, and the restrictions we are facing. Nonetheless, we can choose to work to master ourselves and our reactions. We can find healthy ways to deal with and express feelings of discomfort, and we can choose to make conscious decisions on a daily basis.

The Full Moon in Aries gives us an extra boost of energy: this cosmic event inspires us to find purpose in hardships and to keep moving forward despite the difficulties and challenges we encounter.

Full Moon conjunct Chiron: Learning from Pain

 

The Full Moon is conjunct with Chiron in Aries. This aspect brings our focus on wounds related to our self-esteem, our self-worth, and our sexuality. During these days, we are likely to feel drawn to reflect on the ways we assert ourselves. We may evaluate the way we go after what we want, how we express our individuality, our needs, and our sexual desires.

Feelings of shame and unworthiness can emerge to be elaborated and understood. When did you first feel ashamed of yourself? When do you think you first questioned your self-worth? Can you see a repeating theme or pattern throughout your life? How do you allow other people to treat you? How do you treat yourself? These questions may offer you important insights during this time.

The Moon conjunct Chiron in Aries can bring up deep emotional wounds related to our sense of self, our self-image, and our inherent worth, that can sabotage our relationships because unconsciously we don’t feel worthy of receiving love.

The invitation of this aspect is not to be afraid to fully feel our feelings, to carry our scars with pride, and turn our pain into wisdom by consistently being there for ourselves and not running away from difficult feelings. The conjunction between the Moon and Chiron reminds us that it is perfectly ok to feel broken and lost, yet we don’t need to stay stuck there.

Chiron aspects always offer us the possibility of deep emotional healing, that can only come through embracing our uniqueness and our sensitivity. Through the inner work we have done on ourselves, we can hold space for others and help them overcome their challenges too.

This Full Moon may bring us back to events that happened around July 14, when the powerful conjunction between Mars and Chiron took place. Take some time to think about what was taking place in your life back then. Some of the issues that emerged during that time have the potential to be fully understood, healed, and released.

 

Full Moon in Aries: Taking our Power Back

 

The Full Moon in Aries wants us to empower ourselves. She gives us the opportunity to step into our strength and to let go of the fear of fully embracing all that we are.

full moon in aries Moon Omens

Aries is a pioneer: it is the Zodiac sign related to leadership, bravery, and courage. This Full Moon invites us to open new paths and not be afraid to go to the beat of our own drum. Sticking to the choices and commitments we make as best as we can is what grants us strength, self-confidence, and a sense of agency.

Working with the energy of this Full Moon has the potential to help us release limiting beliefs and behavior patterns that are not supporting our growth. This cosmic event gives us the chance to let go of the fear of owning who we are and inspires us to embrace our individuality, uniqueness, and instinctual self-expression.

Sturgeon Full Moon in Aquarius August 2020

We start the month of August with a powerful Full Moon at 11°45′ of Aquarius, happening on August 3 at 11:58 AM EST.

The August Full Moon is also known as Sturgeon Moon. Her name comes from a prehistoric fish that was very common in the lakes of North America during this season: it was an integral component of Native American Tribes’ diet and survival. This fish was considered a symbol of abundance and a blessing: indigenous peoples used to perform rituals and ceremonies to honor the sturgeon and to celebrate this time of the year.

Any Full Moon represents completion and clarity: it is the time of the month when we reap the rewards of our efforts. We now see the blossoming and maturation of what we have been working on during the previous weeks. These days are a wonderful time to share the results of our work with others, to celebrate our success and growth, as well as to seek constructive feedback.

Moreover, Full Moons always offer us the opportunity to release what has been holding us back, and what we no longer need. They invite us to cleanse ourselves from unwanted energies, from everything that ran its course.

 

Aquarius: Unconventional and Unorthodox 

 

The Full Moon in Aquarius is inspiring us to expand our vision and our hopes for the future, to dare to dream about something unconventional and unorthodox, something that has never been done before.

Aquarius is an innovative, inventive, ingenious Air sign, with a Fixed quality and Yang type of energy. It can probably be considered the least Fixed of all the Fixed archetypes: the element of Air is inherently volatile and flexible, versatile, and predisposed to change. Yet, Aquarius has the inherent capacity to focus on the task at hand and commit to a long-term goal.

full moon in aquarius

Aquarius is the visionary, the genius, and the rebel. Ruled by Uranus, the planet of Revolution and unpredictable events, this sign is impossible to fit in one box. It is associated with progress and new technology, to interconnectedness and instant communication: for this reason, it rules the internet and social media.

It is not a coincidence that, as we are transitioning from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius, everyone is spending more time online, and more and more people will permanently work from home in the near future.

 

Full Moon in Aquarius: Innovative Ideas and Sudden Downloads

 

The Full Moon in Aquarius is highly intensifying our capacity for creative thinking and supporting our originality. If you manage to align with her energy, expect sudden, innovative ideas and downloads.

Aquarius correlates to the Higher Mind and the Akashic Records. The Akashic Records are the realms where all that has happened, is happening and will happen is stored. They can be considered a sort of database where all the information, memories, feelings, thoughts, conversations, and events that ever took place are stored and can be accessed.

The Akashic Records are encoded in a non-physical plane, a higher dimension that, with consistent practice and sincere devotion, can be accessed by everyone.

full moon in aquarius

Because of its connection with the Akashic Records and the higher planes, Aquarius is the archetype correlated to those unexpected downloads, ideas, and visions of the future that seem to be coming out of the blue. These unforeseen insights help us know exactly what we need to do at a certain point in our lives, and they always arrive at the right time, with perfect synchronicity.

On this Full Moon, the Aquarian energy is particularly potent, as both the Sun in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius are forming a square to Uranus in Taurus, the planetary ruler of Aquarius. Connecting with the Akashic Records may be easier than usual during these days.

We have create Full Moon Ritual Tools to help you harness the energy this Full Moon and other alignments in the heavens brings.

Full Moon in Aquarius: Cultivating Friendships & Fostering Communities

 

Aquarius is traditionally related to groups and communities. This sign inspires us to seek collaborations and exchange of opinions with people of like mind, to set up projects and agreements that everyone can benefit from.

People with strong Aquarian influence in their charts are original, open-minded, and creative. They live in the world of ideas, and they have big dreams and plans for the future, often unusual, always unpredictable. They value friendships and can interact with a wide variety of totally different people: they frequently have a huge network of contacts, especially over the internet.

Aquarius and Uranus break down the hierarchies and systems associated with Capricorn and Saturn. Their goal is to build communities where everybody is equal, has the same rights, the same power, the same duties, and responsibilities.

In a moment of history where most of us are forced to be physically distant, it becomes even more relevant to create a space where we can still come together as a group. Sharing our stories, our feelings, our challenges, as well as listening and supporting each other’s journey is a basic human need. The internet has the potential to be a great tool for that, and the Full Moon in Aquarius encourages us to use it wisely.

 

Venus conjunct the North Node: We are Supported

 

On the day of the Full Moon, we already feel the effect of the Venus North Node conjunction in Gemini, exact on August 5.

This aspect is likely to bring more harmony and balance in all our relationships, and we are going to benefit from its positive influence for the whole week. Venus conjunct the North Node in Gemini inspires us to share our ideas and opinions with others, to seek a variety of social interactions and exchanges, in order to expand our perspective and worldview.

Thanks to the beneficial influence of Venus on the North Node, relationships with other people are going to be an important source of inspiration and support during the upcoming week. The invitation is to listen to others from an open mind and don’t be stuck in our opinions or points of view: consider new possibilities, new ways to move forward.

Conflicts and misunderstandings are likely to be solved easily, and communication is supported during the current week. If you need to have difficult conversations with your loved ones, friends, or business partners, the days after the Full Moon represent a good time to do so.

 

Sun & Moon square Uranus: Unforeseen Events and Unexpected Surprises

 

On August 3, the Sun in Leo is exactly opposite the Moon in Aquarius, and they both square Uranus in Taurus, the planetary ruler of the Full Moon. The square between Sun, Moon, and Uranus creates a creative tension that, by making us uncomfortable, pushes us to find innovative solutions to the obstacles or problems we may be currently facing.

Uranus tends to shake up our reality and sometimes forces us to deal with the unexpected, to help us develop new perspectives and points of view we could not achieve otherwise.

To make the most out of its gifts, we need to be ready for sudden changes and surprises. Welcome whatever happens with open arms, even if you don’t understand immediately what its ultimate purpose and meaning is. When you look back, everything will make sense.

On the Full Moon day, we have other interesting aspects: Mars in Aries squares Jupiter in Capricorn, while Mercury in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn. These transits keep emphasizing the conflict between the demands of the world and our instinctual desires and emotional needs. They highlight the importance of making a conscious effort to integrate more self-care and personal time in our everyday lives – a theme we have been working on since June.

 

Full Moon in Aquarius: Make your Own Rules

 

The Full Moon in Aquarius invites us to make our own rules and dare to follow our personal path, without worrying about what other people are doing, or what they may think of us. Aquarius inspires us to have faith in our vision without seeking anyone’s approval or validation.

Uranus is all about freedom, liberation from conditioning, and even rebellion. The planetary ruler of Aquarius urges us to stop trying to fit in, to stop trying to look normal.

full moon in aquarius

Uranus gives us the courage to be ourselves fully, to embrace our uniqueness, and to embody all that we are without asking for permission. For this to be possible, we need to have a stable inner center: the Sun in Leo reminds us how crucial it is to develop self-confidence and a strong sense of who we are.

The planetary transits of the moment are inviting us to keep working on finding our real individuality. The Full Moon in Aquarius encourages us to experiment with different ways of self-expression and to connect with people who inspire us, motivate us, support us, and help us grow into who we truly are.

August 2020 Astrology Forecast – August Energy Update

August 2020 is a fiery, intense, and transformative time. During the first half of the upcoming month, we are likely to notice the prevalence of sharp, reactive, and volatile Yang energy. These days will inspire us to make important decisions and take action following our instincts and desires. We have some additional tools and insights for you for the month of August that will help you navigate this month, tap on following links to access: August Horoscope E-Books and Moon Calendar & Daily Affirmations

While the Sun travels through Leo, Mars in Aries is coming up to an exact square to Pluto in Capricorn, bringing up the intensity and increasing the general sense of tension. Luckily, the transit of Venus through Cancer softens this vibe: Venus will be reminding us to nurture our emotional health and to take good care of ourselves and our loved ones.

During the second half of the month, we are inevitably going to feel an energetic shift, as we will have six planets in an apparent backward motion. After the intensity of the first two weeks of August, we may feel the need to take a break. These days allow us to elaborate on the emotions coming up and to reflect on how we can best adapt to and integrate the events that have been taking place.

The end of August, when Virgo Season begins, is the best moment to start planning and scheduling for the months ahead. Virgo invites us to optimize our time management skills and increase our productivity. If we use this energy wisely, we are likely to get more done and be more efficient.

 

Full Moon in Aquarius

full moon in aquarius

We start the month of August with a powerful Full Moon at 11°45′ of Aquarius, a revolutionary and visionary sign, who inspires us to make our own rules and follow our path. The Full Moon represents completion and clarity: it is the time of the month when we reap the rewards of our efforts. On the same day, Sun and Moon square Uranus, Mars in Aries squares Jupiter in Capricorn, while Mercury in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn. These aspects may bring up some tension between our desire and need to express our individuality and the rules we are supposed to follow, the character we are supposed to play in the world. They keep emphasizing the conflict between the demands of society and our need for self-care, which was a theme during July, too.

 

Mercury enters Leo

mercury in leo

Shortly after the Full Moon, Mercury enters Leo after spending nine weeks in the sign of Cancer. This transit will affect the way we think, speak, and process information. Mercury will be in Leo for three weeks, stimulating creative thinking, increasing our desire to express ourselves artistically and to share what we know with others. Mercury is exactly conjunct with the Sun on August 17: they invite us to open both our hearts and our minds to new perspectives, opportunities, and possibilities.

 

Venus conjunct North Node

venus conjunct north node

Venus forms an exact conjunction with the North Node at 28°13′ Gemini: we are going to feel its positive influence for the whole week. This aspect is extremely beneficial, and it will bring more harmony and peace in our relationships. Conflicts are likely to be solved easily, and our communication skills are highly supported: if you need to have difficult conversations, this is the perfect day to do so.

 

Venus enters Cancer

venus in cancer

Shortly after the conjunction with the North Node, the Goddess of Beauty and Love enters the sign of Cancer. Venus in Cancer will inspire us to cultivate empathy and kindness, to protect our loved ones, and to nurture all our relationships. Taking good care of ourselves and others is key to the transit of Venus through Cancer: she inspires us to dedicate more time than usual to self-care, home, and family.

 

Lion’s Gate Activation

August 2020 Astrology Forecast

Today we experience an alignment between the Earth and the fixed star Sirius that every year on 8/8 activates the Lion’s Gate. This cosmic event is raising the frequency of the whole Earth and opening a portal between our world and higher dimensions. The celestial alignment taking place is affecting our DNA, all the cells of our bodies, and our personal and collective energy fields, preparing humanity and our planet for a powerful shift in consciousness.

 

Mars square Pluto

mars square pluto

The square between Mars in Aries and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn is the first one of a series of three happening throughout 2020. This powerful aspect is highly reactive: it may bring up anger, frustration, and defensiveness. Mars and Pluto are asking us to be clear about what we are fighting for, what we want, and where we want to go. The square inspires us to become more self-aware and to direct our willpower and strength in constructive ways.

 

Uranus Retrograde

uranus retrograde

Uranus in Taurus stations retrograde, joining Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, and Chiron. Uranus retrograde inspires an ongoing questioning of ourselves, our choices, and our life path. Uranus is the rebel, the revolutionary: it is the planet related to what Carl Jung called the individuation process, as well as to sudden disruptions and change. Uranus retrograde invites deep self-analysis to identify our conditioning and break free from it before we act, in such a way that when we finally take action we can do so from a different place, without unwanted influences of the past.

 

New Moon in Leo

August 2020 Astrology Forecast

The New Moon coming up at 26°35′ of Leo is an invitation to become aware of the ways we use our creativity, energy, and vitality. The supportive trine to Mars in Aries inspires us to experiment with different self-expression modalities, increasing our stamina, determination, and willpower. We are opening a new lunar cycle where our vitality and energy levels tightly correlate to our capacity for emotional regulation. Finding ways to channel, move, and physically release the excess emotional energy is highly recommended.

 

Mercury enters Virgo

August 2020 Astrology Forecast

Mercury starts traveling through Virgo, one of the signs it naturally rules. During this transit, our intellectual and mental abilities are highly supported: our mind is likely to be extremely active, sharp, and quicker than usual. Overthinking might be an issue: Mercury in Virgo is constantly analyzing everything, taking care of all details, looking for what to upgrade. If we can harness the best qualities of this transit, these are great weeks to reorganize our schedule, work on new projects efficiently, and improve our organization of time.

 

Sun enters Virgo

August 2020 Astrology Forecast

As soon as Virgo season begins, the energy is going to ground significantly. We are likely to feel more Yin and introspective, to shift most of our focus on ourselves and our inner state. We may feel called to implement practical actions to improve our health, diet, well-being, work-life balance, and daily routines. Constant dissatisfaction with the way things are and unhealthy levels of perfectionism are something to be on the lookout for. Our productivity and focus are likely to skyrocket if we use this energy wisely: we have the chance to make significant progress both in our work and in our healing process.

 

Mars square Saturn

mars square saturn

Just a few days after squaring Pluto, Mars in Aries squares Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. This aspect reflects the current tension between the will and the desires of individuals and the laws and regulations enforced by governments. During this transit, our need for freedom and impulse to take unrestricted action may encounter blockages imposed by external authorities. Yet, we still have the opportunity to channel our life force energy in different ways. Mars square Saturn inspires us to reach new levels of self-control and self-mastery and to overcome frustration wisely.

 

Venus opposite Pluto & Mercury opposite Neptune

August 2020 Astrology Forecast

On this day, we may witness polarization within relationships and all sorts of communication issues. Venus opposite Pluto reflects a conflict between the emotional needs of individuals and the demands of society or someone’s career. Mercury opposite Neptune may indicate a situation where the person we are interacting with misunderstands our message completely. These transits tend to generate a sense of confusion and some amount of projection. If you can, wait a few days to have important conversations.
