Aries Full Moon, Autumnal Equinox, and Planets a-Shiftin’: Spinning into Balance, Passion, Speaking Truth, and New Beginnings

This Aries full moon is arriving just after the Autumnal Equinox, amidst the crazy movements of all of these retrograde planets going direct. This is a time for imbalance turning to balance, for numbness and dissociation to turn into passion and motivation, for the mundane to turn into magic as we begin to turn into ourselves to prepare for hibernation and inner growth and integration.

The Vitruvian Apple: An Autumnal Equinox Article and Ritual

It is at this time of the year in the northern hemisphere that the leaves start to change and the air gets a tad crisper. Or, well, if you happen to be in the Midwest right now, at 80 degrees Fahrenheit and humid maybe it doesn’t feel that way, so much. But it will come, soon enough.

6 September 2017 Full Moon (Plus, Mercury goes direct and Neptune Retrograde)

The moon rose high in the sky in a burnt orange hue, last evening. Fall appears to be nearing. The mystery of the moon seems to grow somehow more mysterious at this time of the year. A glow came over my heart at the thought of brisk night walks through the woods, cool earth beneath my feet through the day, and a special permission from nature to turn within a little longer, and a little more often.

This month, the Harvest Moon appears full in the sign of Pisces, giving us the perfect floating current from summer into fall (fire into water), and the grace to sink into the emotions from whatever the fiery new moon and solar eclipse in Leo brought up for us. This full moon is the time to immerse ourselves in reflection and direction. It is time to flow.
