As we move into October on the 1st we will be seeing a very bright full moon. This full moon will be in the sign Aries and well, it’s going to bring with it some powerful energies.

This full moon is known as the Harvest moon because it is the first full moon after the Fall Equinox, and because of this, we’re all offered a chance to begin freshly. This moon for all of us will bring out a lot of emotions and really help us feel more romantic and more tuned into our partners all the while potentially causing conflicts within. Nothing is certain during this time, and these energies will make that apparent.

Cafe Astrology wrote as follows breaking down some of the energies this moon will bring:

This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between meeting our personal needs and attending to the needs of a significant other, and between independence or autonomy and dependence or companionability.

The Libra Sun is diplomatic, equality-minded, and fair-minded. The Aries Moon, however, values authenticity over tact and is energized by independent efforts. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict.

Neglecting either end of the Aries-Libra axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, we find a balance between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do.

This Full Moon is about emotional declarations. Something has been building inside of us, likely of a personal nature, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the upcoming weeks, we will discover what this declaration means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them.

The Full Moon illuminates the conflict between “me” and “you,” and between autonomy and sharing. With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic illumination occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is new and not particularly rational.

This lunation reminds us to consider how we are honoring ourselves in the context of our close relationships. New revelations can occur now, particularly in the areas of our physical bodies, leadership skills, our ability to initiate and begin new things, and our close partnerships.

While it might not sound like it, this moon will very useful in helping us take care of ourselves big time. During the time that these energies are present in our lives we should be reviewing our goals and really breaking things down as best we can. The more your desires come to the surface during this time perhaps the more you should be willing to dive into them. However, thinking things through is very important.
