The annual full moon in Aries arrives with extra oomph this year. Along with being its fiery, badass self, this full moon syncs up exactly with radical Uranus in Aries, bringing a cry of “Viva La Revolucion!” Changes of the big, bold variety are slated to happen, whether we think we’re ready for ‘em or not.
Adding to the forward-moving thrust will be the fact that the full moon and Uranus in Aries form a T-Square formation (three or more planets forming right angles to each other) with the Sun in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. T-Squares push us to act, but challenge us with tough choices. With the full moon in Aries at the helm here, we must do what’s best for us personally while trying to maintain a semblance of harmony and not completely topple the structures that support us. It’s definitely going to be a balancing act, and we should avoid the less-evolved traits of Aries, such as rash impulsivity and hotheadedness. Here are a few tips for harnessing the heat of the Aries full moon:
Shameless self-promotion is fully sanctioned by the Aries full moon, provided you do it with both sass and class. The zodiac’s Ram is not one to wait for others to sign its permission slip. Instead, Aries energy is about charging ahead boldly putting your ideas into the cultural mix. Got something to contribute to the world? (Um, of course you do.) Tweet about it, post a status update, throw a party to share it with friends. At work, you might harness this Aries full moon firepower to get your ideas in front of the higher ups; or, you could take the initiative and write someone you really want to work with a “let’s do lunch!” invitation. On the romance front, stop suffering silently through your love jones. Let your feelings be known in a seductively direct manner. This is a day where big risks bring bigger rewards.
The warrior energy of Aries will be flaring with extra intensity under the light of this full moon. Instead of getting into fisticuffs with your aggro neighbor or trying to suppress the natural emotion of anger, find a healthy outlet for release. Kickboxing, sparring, Krav Maga, mixed martial arts—this full moon is all about the fighting sports. You might even sign up for that self-defense class you’ve been meaning to take. Learning how to fight back and stand up for yourself is something the Aries full moon is here to teach. No more taking it lying down! No, we are not recommending that you start any fights, but when push comes to shove, it will be good to know that you can finish them.
Aries rules the noggin, so the head area will come into focus under this full moon. With the radical energies afoot, you might get the urge to make a bold statement and do something edgy with your hair. Shaving your head—if you feel called to do something so ballsy—can feel like a tribal ritual of sorts. You might just buzz a band of hair a la Rihanna, Pink, and the haute hipster set. If you’re not feeling quite so fearless about your tresses, you could also try a piercing, or treat yourself to a symbolically significant pair of earrings, headband, or other hairpiece. You might try earrings with balancing stones in them. Jasper is stabilizing and can help keep you cool in a conflict. Adventurine stabilizes blood pressure and relieves headaches—something the Aries full moon can intensify.
