Full Moon in Aries – Finding Your True Purpose

Working with the Full Moon

Consider what is happening when the Moon is full in the sky:

Growth, completion and opportunity.

We see the whole illuminated surface of the visible face of the Moon. Up until this point we have watched the Moon grow in the sky since it was New two weeks earlier, and now it reaches it’s energetic climax. The Full moon therefore signifies growth, completion and opportunity.

Illuminating what is normally hidden

At night when the sky is clear on a full moon the light shines over the planet illuminating everything. It’s brightness is quite outstanding and often the level of visibility this creates is surprising. Consider this for a moment, as it demonstrates how the full moon shines a light into the dark corners on the things which are hidden. We also experience this in our emotional self and find that things come to the surface and what was once hidden begins to show.

Showing off your shadow side

The bright light of the full moon also casts a shadow as the moonbeams dance with natural and man-made structures on the planet. Inside, our shadow side becomes more visible and what we thought was hidden or forgotten comes back asking for our attention.

Opposing forces of the Moon and Sun

For the light and illumination to occur the Moon and the Sun find themselves in opposition in the night’s sky bringing the energy of opposing forces into play. Here we experience challenges, out of character behaviour and unexpected results. No wonder the full Moon is known the be an unpredictable and eventful time for many.

What is Aries Energy All About?

Aries is a fire sign, all about action and getting things done. However there is also a warrior energy to Aries too!. Aries wants us to achieve our goals and dreams and gets frustrated by what is blocking us from doing just that, whether it’s internal or external.

During the time of the Aries Full Moon we are being encouraged to identify what our dreams look like and the blocks we have in place that are preventing us from realising those dreams.

After the full moon, the light and energy begins to wane making it the perfect time to release those blocks, paving the way to success.

Ask yourself:

  • What is your true purpose?
  • Why are you here?
  • What are you meant to achieve?

The Aries Full Moon wants you to find your true purpose

Message from the Full Moon in Aries

The Sun in Libra

During the time of the full moon the Sun is still in the sign of Libra which I talk about in my blog New Moon in Libra.

The influence of the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries is felt during this time as opposing energies (astrological opposition).

The conflict that we experience here is that Libra is all about partnerships and relationships while Aries is single minded and focused on personal goals.

During this time we need to look for balance and use the drive of Aries and the social support of Libra to make that happen.

You can do it alone if you want to (Aries) but you totally don’t have to (Libra)

Message from Libra Sun and Aries Moon

Working with the Zodiac

When we work with the energy of the signs of the zodiac we need to consider the low vibration and high vibration energies of each sign.

The aim is to reduce our tendency to spend time in those lower vibrations by moving across to the higher vibrations.

Let’s take a look at the low and high vibrations of Aries:

Low Vibration Aires

  • Selfish
  • Manipulative
  • Inflexible
  • Reject support
  • Shut people out
  • Unable to compromise

High Vibration Aries

  • Strong leadership skills
  • Self confident
  • Positive
  • High energy
  • Creative
  • Brave/Courageous

What changes can you make in your life to move from low to high?

What’s in a Name?

Each Full Moon has a name associated with it and these can be different depending on where in the world you live. The Hunters Moon is the most common name given to the Full Moon in October. However it is also know as: Blood Moon, Harvest Moon, Shedding Moon, Winterfelleth, Falling Leaf Moon, Tend Colds Moon, Moon of Changing Seasons.

Inspiration and Guidance for this Full Moon

I like to connect to the guidance of some of my favourite authors during the lunar cycle. Here are a collection of quotes to support this Full Moon in Aries. Which is your favourite?

The Aries Full Moon occurs while the Sun is in Libra, the sign of relationships, and the Moon is in Aries, the sign of the individual. There’s an inherent tension between these two signs, since they’re at opposite ends of a polarity, but they also balance each other out. It’s hard to have a fulfilling relationship (Libra) unless your know yourself (Aries) well enough to choose the right person.

Moon Power – Simone Butler

When the moon travels through Aries we feel our life force rise up, our patience diminish, and our attitude sharpen. It’s up to use to use the enthusiasm to revive our life and consciously add in patience and foresight to soften the rough edges.

Moon Wisdom – Heather Roan Robbins

Deep in nature, connected to the Earth, away from the city lights, distraction, and noise – this is when you will experience a greater appreciation of what is involved at this key phase of the lunar cycle.

Lunar Abundance – Ezzie Spencer PHD

The Full Moon is the stuff of legend: humans become werewolves, witches cackle around cauldrons and people turn into ‘lunatics’. This is the ‘mother’ phase of the maiden/mother/crone triple goddess.

Many Moons – Modern Women

On the warriors moon we fight for what we believe in. This is a lone battle, and it is especially effective if we are fighting with no approval from other, and perhaps even in spite of their disapproval.

Hi, I’m Sarah Cornforth and I'm a Creatrix of Magick.  I have never really considered myself creative or artistic as I'm too much of a perfectionist for that and I still find it hard to accept the word ‘artist’ as a title for myself. Initially creating art was a way of coping with the curveballs of life. When I draw, or paint or craft I feel calmer, my mind slows down to a pace I can cope with and life becomes easier. I also love working closely with the phases of the moon and the cycles of nature in everything I do as the benefits are huge. At the end of 2017 a dear friend nudged me in the direction of creating art to sell, and if it had been anyone else who encouraged me I would have thought they were mad. But this particular friend has a special gift. She can see the life purpose of others. So I listened and I took every piece of advice she had to give me.....and here I am, creating art, working with the Moon, teaching people how to heal through Mandala art, feeling happy and sharing what I love with the world. Thank you for joining me on this journey.
