Full Moon in Aries September 25 2018

Inner Tension
September 25 2018

After the autumnal equinox turning point, the Aries Full Moon on Monday September 24, 2018 is at 2° Aries harks back to spring-like energies of the prior vernal equinox. Memory of once-green leaves, now in fall, reminds us of opposite ends in the normal cycle of life and death in nature’s year, promising new life again in another six months. The Aries Moon conjoins planetoid Chiron, the mythic Wounded Healer, echoing that human births are seldom ideal, and yet we know ourselves better when we are aware of their circumstances. The full moon square Saturn has a restricting and depressing influence on your feelings and relationships.

 Whilst the Aries Moon demands a me first approach, the Libra Sun and Mercury emphasise us and we, keen on compromises and win–win scenarios. Typical tensions could be offset through well-thought-out words, since Mercury’s rationale can help to cool a fever. But Mercury conjunct the Sun is also “combust,” suggesting more volatility or less verbal and mental power. If a situation becomes explosive, perhaps that is part of the way forward!

Most situations have the potential to be contained, thanks to the Full Moon’s t-square configuration with Saturn and Vesta in Capricorn.  The eternal, living hearth flame is Vesta’s symbol; discipline and centredness, her tools and aims. Meditation on a candle flame or a lamp can be especially beneficial to bring a strong sense of order and calm. 

Saturn often represents an older person: a parent, guardian, elder relative, friend, colleague, mentor, or sponsor to be looked up to and relied on. Nonetheless, needed help can arrive in various ways. In a less personified or alive form, this help could be the wisdom of ancient texts or the continuing voice of a historical figure with worldly experience, imparting a learned understanding.

While Saturn square the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Chiron brings a multitude of potential problems, there are a number of positive blue aspects in the chart. First of all, Mars gives the strength and courage to overcome adversity. Another positive influence comes from Uranus which helps break through barriers and overcome inhibitions.

Saturn trine Uranus encourages you to make positive changes instead of putting up with limiting conditions. 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.
