Aries Full Moon

The 12° Aries Full Moon today stokes a good bit of emotional volatility and healing power this week. 

My best advice: Titrate your exposure to the relentless stream of tragic news. Channel your thorny feelings into rigorous exercise or through deep connection with one another. Ground yourself in the relationships of here and now.

Wherever this Full Moon lands in your chart, (see Mooncasts here), is where you're called to release and believe in yourself.

The Jupiter-Uranus opposition is still making miracles more possible now than ever. But we may find ourselves too overcome by the swell of suffering this week to fully access that optimism.

Full Moons generally signal endings or moments of culmination and clarity. This one confronts us with issues of power and/or powerlessness, vulnerability and control, bravery in the face of trauma. 

This is the domain of Pluto, our astrological Shadow, and he has the microphone at this Full Moon. With this energy, the only way out is through. And with the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter in Libra right now, our path to peace is through supporting each other.   

A week from now, Jupiter begins a year-long tour in Scorpio encouraging us to throw open the blinds on our deepest secrets, to mine the depths and find joy in true intimacy in ways we haven't considered since 2005.

Today, though, the Buddhist practice of cultivating lovingkindness can bring comfort and calm. 

Here's a metta meditation I recommend.

May we all be peaceful and free.
