Wild hearts can’t be broken—and neither can their spirits. On Thursday, October 5, 2017, at 2:40 p.m. EDT, the year’s only full moon in courageous, self-authorized Aries will rock the skies, supporting any declarations of independence—not that it has to be THAT extreme!
Are you craving a little more autonomy or space? Dive into a passion project at the fiery Aries full moon, or debut the one you’ve been working on since the corresponding Aries new moon this past March 27. "To thine own self be true" is this full moon’s mantra. Bow out of activities that don’t speak to your soul, and say a resounding "YES!" to the ones that light your fire. Got something fabulous to promote? Save the humblebrags, and go big and bold.
The Aries full moon is an opportunity to acknowledge your inner badass. Competition could get fierce, though, as Aries energy plays to win—which is only intensified under these powerful moonbeams. Warning: Be cautious not to cross the line into "cutthroat" terrain.
The forthright cosmic energy of assertive Aries will draw out our freedom of self-expression and our deepest, most fiery passions. Tip: Just go easy on the "my way or the highway" bluster. Power struggles could easily erupt at this ego-driven lunation. Instead of fighting for world domination, divert your attention to your wildest dreams. Dive into a passion project, or debut the one you’ve been working on.
The Aries full moon could transform the world into one big talent show, putting our most cherished dreams on center stage. What have you been striving toward since the spring? This is the week to cash in and collect your comeuppance. New moons take six months to reach their corresponding full moon, and Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. La luna brings you full circle now—a time to see the results of your brave actions.
The full moon in Aries is also known as a Hunter’s Moon or Travel Moon, since it is the first full lunation to follow September’s Harvest Moon in earthy Virgo—though many will also call this a Harvest Moon as well.
