This is the Now Moon! Do you feel the sense of emergency in the air? Occupy Wall Street is such an awesome representation of this Aries-Libra polarity. The way of the peaceful warriors: fighting for justice with a fierce sense of urgency and cooperative simplicity.
What injustices from ourselves or others must we face in our personal lives? Where have we been too complacent?
This is our annual reminder to face life on life’s terms but with the spirit of a boxer—not as a wimp and certainly not as a victim. In other words, not “yessing” life while secretly grumbling and bitching that we aren’t getting what we want. There’s no side-stepping, half-stepping or pussy-footing for that matter while the Moon rages full in Aries. Putting off action for a later date is courting disaster. Love relationships get heated and crisis erupts like a house on fire when egos flare. If we feel we’re being treated second class—time to pull out the big guns. And if the need for immediacy is met with laziness and complacency, the war is on. This is a time for action. A sense of urgency can be felt all around. Patience is in short supply so don’t push buttons or promise things that you aren’t ready or willing to act on immediately.
See you–See Me:
Are you a lover or a fighter? Either way, having it out with the one you love can be the most bonding necessity at this time. It’s always the couples that never fight that end up in the War of the Roses divorce battles when all that was suppressed for years comes raging to the surface. Mr. and Mrs. Nice Guy will not be invited to the Full Moon in Aries party. Passive-aggressiveness will not only get you nowhere but will probably be punished— violently. We will all feel like we’re reaching our boiling point and enough is enough. It’s time to sever the cords with those that refuse to take our best interest into consideration. Co-dependency is just ugly and repulsive at this point in our evolution as a species, so don’t even go there. Uranus in Aries won’t abide by losing your authenticity just to be liked or to have someone to go out to dinner with. This Full Moon demands that we look after ourselves and stop hoping there is someone out there that can do a better job at it. This is the great Hall of Mirrors Full Moon. Who is the real enemy?
Love is a Battlefield:
The battlefield is usually with our own ego and vanity issues that need to be resolved from within. No matter how many thousands of times or sources tell us we’re good enough, smart enough and goshdarnit people worship us—we’ll keep on comparing and despairing in the name of self-doubt until we reach the point of self-possession. Aries says: if we can come home to our deepest “I AM’ principle and get clear on who we are and where we’re projecting our best on to others, we still stand a chance. And let’s face it: Aries loves a good fight. As Dylan Thomas said: we must rage against the dying light— and on a daily basis. Honor the Aries essence by making every day, every interaction a thrilling new creation.
