(Abby Cahoone) On September 24th, 2018 we have a full moon in the sign, Aries. One thing is for sure, this full moon in Aries will bring a lot to the surface, including fears and unsettled emotions. Let’s take a look at what might be in store for us energetically as the full moon energy approaches.

Full Moon Break Down
In general, the full moon is a time of cycles ending or coming to full completion. With this, naturally many will feel a push to release certain aspects of their lives. This can come in the form of relationships, work, or personal ideas and habits that no longer serve us. Because this is a time of heightened emotion this process can feel far more overwhelming than what we would expect it to.
My advice; do what you can as you can. Trying to be somewhere that doesn’t feel right won’t help you, it won’t feel natural to you. And trying to force yourself to be at a level you want to be at before you are ready for it can cause more distress than being exactly where you are and being okay there. Roll with what comes your way, and let go of the things that are clearly making their way out. This can be a natural process that we go through every month. As one cycle ends, another begins. Every time. Trust that. The next two weeks will be the ending of certain cycles and shifting you to the best place to begin new ones when the new moon comes into play.
This is also a time of abundance, things coming into their full form once and for all. So while this can be a good time to purge, it doesn’t mean that there won’t be a silver lining or two during this time.
Emotions Run High
This is pretty typical around the full moon time. You may have noticed feeling emotional or like you can’t control emotions a few days before the moon was full. We know the moon affects tides, being that we are made of 70% or so of water it’s natural that something is going to be stirred up inside of us.
Keep in mind you are not your emotions and they do not have to run your life. Oftentimes I notice people live at the whim of their emotions especially around the time of the full moon (myself included). If you feel yourself getting emotional don’t fault yourself, and don’t fault others for being in that space either. The best way to work through this is pay attention to what is making you emotional. This thing may be trying to work it’s way out or work it’s way into your life during the full moon. Ask yourself: am I resisting what is happening? Am I trying to cling to something or to push something away? These simple questions can help you gain a deeper understanding of the changes you are going through.
Aries, the Ram
The energy from this sign may cause you to feel a gamut of emotions as this fire sign shakes things up. This is because the moon represents our emotions and our inner world. You also may find yourself reacting faster than normal certain situations that could use a little more forethought.
The sign of Aries, the first of the zodiac named after the God of war, could potentially cause a little discord during this full moon. It is important that before you react- center yourself. This sign is the first of the zodiac and quite independent. You may find yourself wanting to rebel quickly against any authority and wanting to fight the injustices you feel are being thrown at you. But remember, this full moon is going to amplify those out of control feelings so be sure you are not blowing things too far out of proportion before you start reacting. If you do find yourself reacting quickly and getting overwhelmed, anxious, or angry when you notice this take a step back and collect yourself. You would be amazed at the power a few mindful deep breaths can have.
You may see these traits come through during this full moon not just in you but in everyone. Remember all of us receive this full moon energy, we are all going to be going through different shifts because of it.
An Opportunity to Face Fears
The energy of this full moon will likely give you the opportunity to face your fears once and for all. This can sound scary, it can sound daunting, but this is a way of you cycling out the things that truly do not serve a purpose in your life anymore. Remember, the full moon is about ending certain cycles. The time to end your fear based thought patterns is now.
A note about overcoming fears during this full moon from the Astrology King website:
Saturn trine Uranus encourages you to make positive changes instead of putting up with limiting conditions. It brings unexpected opportunities to break free of restriction, to leave unhealthy relationships and be yourself. It helps overcome fear of change because this is a transition phase in your life. You will stay calm and patient, planning every step methodically, instead of having to react to abrupt change. Above all, Uranus gives the electric spark and urge for freedom that will help you overcome your fears and find a new, exciting way forward.
As stated here, a fear of change for many of us may come up. But now is the time where you will finally feel the push to charge through that fear for good! This is a big transition period for many and a huge aspect of that is the idea of change. Be willing to move with what is moving for you because the things in place that limit you right now (I’m sure a lot of ideas run through your mind as you read the word limit, those are the things I am talking about) do not help you in any way. We often associate things shifting as a bad thing because it can make us uncomfortable, but this is usually only for a short period of time. This headstrong Aries energy may be exactly what you need to charge through this!
It is also noted on the Astrology King website:
Moon sextile Mars gives the passion and enthusiasm needed to overcome the restraint and inhibition from Saturn and the fixed star. It gives the warmth and sexual attraction to overcome fears of intimacy or rejection. The competitive yet cooperative nature to this aspect will also help avoid Mercury misunderstandings and arguments. It means you can express yourself with more confidence. Most of all though, it gives the drive, initiative and courage to overcome whatever tests and challenges this full moon represents for you.
It seems this moon will be giving us the opportunity to speak up! This is a trend that surfaces often during the full moon because we find ourselves compelled to voice the things that are bubbling up to the surface. Be on the lookout for this feeling to speak your needs so you can mindfully communicate before you start shouting about injustices and making demands. This can sneak up on you and come out of nowhere so taking the time for mindful communication is huge right now.
Overview and Tips for this Full Moon
As you work through this full moon’s energy remember:
- You may feel a little headstrong.
- Communicate your needs after thinking about how to effectively do so.
- Your emotions (and other’s emotions) may get a little crazy, and that’s okay. Be open and understanding to what is happening.
- Embrace change.
- Speak up for yourself.
- Take a deep breath before you lose your head.
- Feel your emotions completely and then let them go.
- Take note of what feels out of resonance and allow it to phase itself out.
This moons energy will bring a lot up for many of us. Take this as an opportunity to speak up for yourself when you feel inclined to. Feel your emotions fully as they ebb and flow through your being without clinging to them. Things may shift for you during this new moon and it can feel a little unsettling, but trust this is apart of a bigger plan for you and it is helping you re-calibrate towards the best path for you.
