The equinox has arrived, now gracing us with a full moon in Aries and for the first time in a long time I've stepped into autumn with a renewed sense of purpose, contentment, vitality and welcomed acceptance of the upcoming rest period.
This time of reflection allows for us to look into our lives and take note of this years crop, how did the seeds that we cultivated way back last winter and plant in spring grow for us. Did we plant the right intentions and give them ample nourishment and light to grow, what were the wrong crops for our garden and are we ready to let them dissolve back into the earth? Where is the light and darkness in our lives in this very moment, can we honor both for their respective gifts?
"It’s going to be an initiation and a stretch for us to listen to the voice of our soul rather than the chaotic voices of our world…
“While the solar cycle starts in March/April with the Sun in Aries and impels us to find out who I am, the Aries lunar cycle begins in August/September with the question, who am I in relationship with others? “…The storyline for each Aries Full Moon is the Libra mystery: how do you and I compliment each other? “How well do we fit together? How do we achieve some kind of balance between me and my desires, and you and your desires? “…This Full Moon’s energy is enhanced by Mercury and Ceres in Libra, Chiron Rx in Aries and Saturn and Vesta in Capricorn…
“These three planetary energies are engaged in a new birth – a new way of being grounded in the Self yet opened to the Other, nurtured by Ceres’ spiritual realities and Mercury’s inner visualization…
“With Chiron retrograde conjunct the Aries Moon, we can either spend our time being re-traumatized by our old wounds or finally free of them. “And free to start a new life with Aries courage and leadership."-Cathy Pagano via @mysticmamma 🌝
My life has become full in ritual as self care & to find my centre. Seasonal,lunar and solar transitions is a time I take to honour, reflect, have gratitude, let go and recalibrate. I encourage you to find a ritual to mark the beginnings of the autumn equinox full moon and the equanimity of light & darkness in your life.
