How this Full Moon in Aries is impacting you ? …
Aries & Aries Rising: As your personal projects rise to glorious culmination, you notice a few snares in your professional sphere. Should power tussles ensue, channel your inner diplomat. Build a path from the shared ground of where your goals overlap.
Taurus & Taurus Rising: Sleep could feel like a tall order this week, as the Full Moon keeps you wired and ready to vanquish demons. Keep a notepad by your table to write down furious thoughts or dreams. This act of pouring your fears onto paper can keep them out of your mind.
Gemini & Gemini Rising: As your schemes for the collective start to bear fruit, tension could emerge between you and your conspirators. This is a bold and expansive week, but it will require effort to ensure no friend or collaborator is left behind.
Cancer & Cancer Rising: As your career dreams flower open, so do hiccups with near and dear ones. No one ever said colluding in life would be seamless. This is a week to honor those seams (aka boundaries.) To mark them in crimson threads and discuss your needs plainly.
Leo & Leo Rising: As the Moon kindles the lamps in your inner temples and libraries, you remember the many ways “knowledge is power.” How do you wield yours? This Full Moon also reminds you of the wisdom embedded in your own body — especially when it aches or complains. Listen.
Virgo & Virgo Rising: Your collaborations are blooming open this week, but a few trick spiders drop down from the rafters. Your urge to control the creative process may feel stymying to others. Constraints can be fruitful, but so can letting ideas breathe.
Libra & Libra Rising: As Luna lights the torches in your commitment sector, a partnership reaches a new milestone. Milestones are their own kind of threshold — a passage you can’t uncross. Here, a few ghosts dwell, rustling up old power games. The first step to banishing these ghosts is to name them.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising: Just before the season of You opens its gates, the Full Moon culminates projects in your zone of tinkering and toiling. While you may complete a key work project or health regime, there’s potential to overdo it. Put your body in control of your scheduling this week. Clear the calendar if necessary.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising: The birthing of a creative project can feel as wild and dishevelling as other forms of labor. The Aries Full Moon illuminates the finish line — and all the thorns you must cross to get there. Note that some of these thorns could be of a financial nature, but you have an infinite pocket book of talent to fall back on.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising: A home or family matter reaches a brave culmination this week. Your impulse will be to name all the elephants in the room or take decisive action in a housing matter. Expect turbulence, but remember that compassion ≠ people pleasing.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising: The Aries Full Moon reminds you that your intellect is a potent, not-so-secret weapon. As a writing, learning, or neighborhood project culminates, take care with your self-talk, as well as your words to others. Don’t underestimate the way those barbs can be self-stinging.
Pisces & Pisces Rising: As Luna fills in Aries, you turn a corner in your relationship with material security. In lore, the pots of gold are often guarded by trolls or dragons. This Full Moon may have you sweet-talking a few goblins, including your own fables around worth and worthiness.
