Gaze into the Waters of Your Soul
The #Scorpionewmoon is a time of initiation.
The new Moon is conjunct Mercury as it moves into the sign that powers transformation. It is a time to think about who we are and where we are and how we might like to proceed – not a hard plan – more of an inner resolve.
Scorpio is a fixed water sign. So once resolve is initiated, the waters of intention, and desire can carry us on our way.
Imagine, in meditation if you like, stirring the cauldron that is the life, gazing into it and adding the bits and pieces that will make it most nurturing and delicious to feed the self and the soul. This is the time to say I no longer fancy that particular herb that I've put in my soup my whole life and it feels right to add this spice instead. I new introduction to the melange can utterly alter the course of the life. #Pluto is the ruler of #Scorpio and is the higher octave of Mars so instinct does come into play at the new Moon. Trust your gut as it works in concert to guide the Soul and the personality on the way. We are at the time of the Celtic New Year. Release what no longer serves. Write it in the fire’s ash and sweep it away. Feed the waters with love gratitude courage and the best of intentions. Write them down. Wait three days before speaking them aloud to another. We are powerful beings who came to transform and grow and find meaning and enjoyment. Intention opens the door and the doors are opening. Now

ARIES FULL MOON 2016 Creation is Liberation
The full Aries moon on October 15 is conjunct Uranus. Uranus is in #Aries until March of 2019.
Uranus is the planet of genius, liberation, shock, individuation, trauma, alienation, friends, ruler of Aquarius and service to the world. Aries wills us to instinctually strike out in new, exciting and ingenious ways. To make a mark. Our mark.
With Uranus conjunct the full Moon, our emotions and ego are drawn into this groundbreaking experience. Mars, the ruler of Aries, is in Capricorn – a Cardinal earth sign. We are wanting to find a structure for new energies that are moving in and through us and want to be made manifest. We also want to trust our own authority to lay this new groundwork.
It is likely that people will want to break out, break free. I suggest dancing wildly (for real or metaphorically) as a means to ground some of this very electrical energy and to help you see which way freedom lies.
The Cardinal fire energy of the #FullMoon/Uranus in #Aries is in opposition to the Sun in Libra a Cardinal air sign. Breathe in and blow on whatever spark you’ve created. Have a look at the spirits that rise up in the flame when you unfocus your eyes a bit.
A. It's relaxing and grounding as a practice which is needed in a time of such wild energy.
B. The genius will be called out of the flame by your instinctual desire to create something new and something that is uniquely your own.
C. True healing can be experienced in giving over, in a safe and sacred space that you've created, to the call of your wild.
Don’t worry about being refined or honing the experience. Allow yourself to be raw for the next few days. Rough drafts, sweeping lines, swinging arms. The Sun in Libra can help with refining once the full moon energy subsides. At that point, you may be relating to yourself in new and truer ways.
Oh, and as Aries is the baby of the zodiac, baby yourself a bit. Eat a bit of what you fancy, cry, put yourself first and swaddle yourself in something cozy when you get tuckered out. Full Moons are a time of completion, too.
This is a full Moon that can't be predicted or dictated. Breathe deep. Check the fire in the color of the Moon, the bonfire in the back garden and especially, what embers are being stoked in your belly. Trust your gut and let your body guide the way into liberation.
