Aries Full Moon: We are the Heroes

We are powerful beyond measure,

and so deeply vulnerable at the same time.

This may seem like a dichotomy, but it isn’t.

We have misunderstood real power.

It has been something assertive,

non-surrendering, pushing on through.

This is not real power. This is simply willfulness.

Real power is something else-

receptivity, openness, the courage

to keep your heart open on the darkest of days,

the strength to feel it all even when

the odds are stacked against you.

Real power is showing up with your heart on your sleeve and

absolutely refusing to waste one moment of your life

hidden behind edginess and armor. Jeff Brown

The Full Moon on October 9, 2022 at 16 Aries accelerates a healing process that has kept confidence at bay. We are making strides in reclaiming a deep and abiding trust in ourselves.

The Aries Full Moon marks a movement away from feeling we are simply at the effect of the world and a victim of circumstances. Looking through a clearer lens, we embrace ourselves as heroic. We have the potential to better accept ourselves and not fight circumstance or wish life were different than it is. As the wound surrounding of self-confidence heals, we realize that we are exactly where we are meant to be and circumstances are perfect to stir and awaken what lies dormant within us.

Key to this process is conversation and collaboration with others. It is through interaction with others that we can finally remove the protective armor that was erected long ago. We are to allow, not force ourselves, to meet some imagined outcome. We are to slow down so that we can adequately focus awareness on habitual thought patterns that are ready to be rewired. We are discovering how our self talk and our words can better express our intrinsic nature. This will result in creating connection with, and acknowledgement from, others that we long for.

Releasing our Maverick Spirit to Engage at Will

Not Just Going Along with What Others Wants

but Initiating Dynamic, Empowering Interaction

The Aries Moon illuminates Chiron and the journey we have been taking to reclaim and trust our instinctual nature.

This process, initiated when Chiron moved into Aries in 2018, has compelled us to dissolve the defenses and patterns of self protection that the ego erected to help us mask our insecurity so that we would appear self-assured. By healing the wounds that had us lose faith in ourselves, the armor that has been stifling our vitality can finally be set aside With a willingness to embrace our vulnerability, we can re-engage our intrinsic nature rather than keep reinforcing our coping mechanisms. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, is rousing the warrior within us. Our inner fire is being stoked. It is this fire that will guide us to courageously take the next decisive step towards actualizing our heart’s desire.
