Full moons carry incredible energy and can create changes in your emotions, your body, your mind, and your spirit.
By tracking the full moons and their meanings we hope to inspire, enlighten, and inform you of the energetic shifts that are on their way to you.
Tonight, October 20th, there will be a Full Moon, known as The Hunter Moon because long ago it signaled a time to go hunting in preparation for the cold winter ahead.
As usual there will be a push pull between two energies and an invitation to find balance between them.
Tonight the moon will be in Aries and the sun will be in Libra.
In this particular axis, the energetics of Aries represent the "self." The Moon's location in Aries asks us to look at how connected we are to self assertion, leadership, and courage.
The Sun represents "others" in this particular axis. So the Sun's location in Libra asks us to look at how connected we are to compromise, negotiation, grace, and balance.
This Full Moon urges us to find harmony between meeting our personal needs and attending to the needs of others. It's also asking us to examine our feelings around our independence and autonomy versus our dependence or companionability.
The Aries Moon values authenticity over tact and is energized by independent efforts. On the other hand, the Libra Sun wants diplomacy, equality, and fairness.
The Full Moon is asking you to look at your drives, your passions, your personal motivations and how those can fit into a framework of also caring deeply for those around you.
Aries energy is about the self, how do I propel myself forward? How do I claim what's mine? How do I live my life to the fullest for myself?
Libra energy says, wait a minute—let's make sure everyone else is ok too. Let's find a way for everyone to win.
Don't neglect either end of the Aries-Libra axis. It doesn't have to be an either or. You can use both the energies to find that balance that will be most beneficial for you AND for them.
Gemstones can be a GREAT support to you as you examine these themes in your life. They can be used as simply contemplative accessories or you can actually garner the energetic qualities from the stones to help tune your perfect balance.
