The fiery sign of Aries influences the energies of the Full Moon on October 14th, bringing us a burst of motivation and courage to overcome any obstacles, in our mind or otherwise. Aries holds a unique vibration that shapes our inner power, especially our power to begin and our power to continue. Each of us are on a journey in life, one that is full of purpose, potential and adversity. To walk this path with authenticity, we need courage; the courage to begin and the courage to continue, even despite challenges, with the same energy as when we started.
The Full Moon is a time for release, clearing our way to manifest our desires. The Aries Full Moon inspires us to release the things that stand in the way of our true purpose, and reminds us that we are each here in this lifetime with a mission. The mission may not always be clear, and the road to get there may challenge us, but the most important step is in accepting that we do have a purpose, that in the grand scheme of things we do matter, and we can make a difference.
We may often face the harshest critic of our abilities in the form of ourselves. On this Aries Full Moon, let go of anything that blocks you from taking those pivotal first steps on your path. These barriers can come from your inner world or your external one. Identify thoughts and feelings which weigh you down energetically and take away your motivation. We also have external blocks which can prevent us from pursuing our mission. These generally come down to logistics like money, location, or even credentials. They also can be relationships which may be blocking you in some way, either because you are attached to them or because they lower your vibration. Know that most external blocks are a manifestation of deeper internal ones. Whatever your barriers are, identify them on this Aries Full Moon. Once we accept that our unique skills, experience, perspective and energy all contribute in attracting our life’s purpose, then our mission becomes clear.
This Full Moon also conjuncts with the Sun in Libra, its opposing sign. While Aries teaches us that our soul’s purpose is the priority in everything we do, Libra teaches us that maintaining inner peace is the most important aspect in us and every exchange we have. When we fuse together these energies, we create a balance point where we have the drive and motivation of Aries, centered and focused by the balance and stability of Libra. We have the drive of Aries to fulfil our higher purpose and the harmony of Libra to allow others to help us on our journey. Aries would like to make us believe we can do anything alone, but with Libra’s complementary energies we see that we are better with others. What we are really dealing with is the merging of the self with others. How can we stay true to our soul’s mission while being in harmony with the rest of the world? This is the opportunity the Aries Full Moon brings us: to find peace within ourselves, which helps us make better choices for us and our relationships.
This Full Moon, we will be working with the grounding energies of Smoky Quartz, a crystal that was known in the past as a Stone of Power. To the ancient Druids, it was sacred and signified the potent dark power of Earth gods and goddesses. In other cultures it guided souls to the afterlife, served in shamanistic rituals and tribal ceremonies, and was utilised in magic and scrying to connect with spirits of the lower worlds. Smoky Quartz’s phenomenal power, then and now, lies in its ability to protect and ground one physically and spiritually to this world, and to absorb and transmute significant amounts of negative energy and release it into the Earth to be neutralised naturally. It provides a vital shield against psychic attack, emotional and environmental stress, and is used extensively in healing and meditation. It is a talisman of the Root Chakra, an anchor in the natural world, drawing white light energy from the Crown down through the body to be deeply rooted into the physical plane. It initiates movement of primal forces within the body and activates one’s survival instincts in a purified way. It brings strength and stability, and a sense of personal pride in walking the Earth and inhabiting a human form. You can find Smoky Quartz at the following stores:
