Since the start of October, there have been some tense cosmic energies on the rise. Perhaps you have been feeling this in your own life and wondering when you will find some relief. Well, that relief is coming with the October Full Moon.
Falling in the sign of Aries, the October 13th Full Moon is going to help cut cords of tension so we can relax and feel free. If you have been feeling highly strung, easily frustrated, or overwhelmed, there is a huge release point on offer to us under the bright Full Moon.
In order to use this energy to our fullest advantage, we have to do some work to snip the cords and release ourselves from the shackles we have become bound by.
What limitations have we been working with that are preventing us from moving forward? What thoughts or beliefs have been blocking our progress and standing in our way?
If we open and surrender to these questions under the light of the Full Moon, we will be guided to snip the cords, unlock the doors, and help free ourselves from any self-imposed barriers we have been hiding behind.
Pluto will also be very active under this Full Moon too and will be encouraging us to keep shedding the layers that hold us back so we can rise into our fullest power.
We must free ourselves from the cages we have put ourselves in and allow ourselves to soar. We must free ourselves from the puppet-strings of society and the self-imposed expectations we put on ourselves.
We have to remove the armor, padding, and masks we have been protecting ourselves with and allow them to fall away. The time to free ourselves is now. The time to be our true selves is now, and we can’t do that when we are hiding.
Just like the Moon will shine brightly in the night sky for all to see, we too have to step up and allow our own energy to shine for all the world to see.
We need to come forward out of the shadows and not be afraid to share our energy with the world. After all, that is why we are here. That is why our souls bothered to make this courageous, scary, and beautiful journey down to Earth in the first place- to share who we are with the world.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is ruled over by the energy of number one, which is about leadership, ownership, and showing up exactly as we are, free of attachments and insecurities and just ready to bring all of who we are into the world.
While we all collect insecurities along the way, it is moments like these where we are reminded to smash through them and to see them for the illusions that they are.
Along with guiding us to release the shackles that hold us back, this Full Moon is also going to be challenging us in our relationships. It wants us to make sure we are not hiding away our true selves or sacrificing too much in order to make those around us comfortable.
The Full Moon energies want to make sure we are not playing small or shortchanging ourselves just to suit others. It also wants to ensure that we are not doing the reverse and allowing our ego to overwhelm or smother another person’s truth or energy.
If this dynamic has been at play in any relationship in your life, you may find that the Full Moon instigates you to take action or to make some changes.
Relationships that are no longer serving you may also be released under this energy or you may feel called to set some new boundaries to ensure you are not be stifled in any way.
If relationship issues were present under the Libra New Moon back on September 28, this Full Moon could also bring some new information to the surface that will allow you to find closure.
As Aries is a fire sign, there will be a fiery quality to this Full Moon that may make us want to rush, force, and jump into things headfirst.
While this energy will be motivating us to break free, it may help to check-in and ensure we are acting from a place of love rather than ego.
This is highly motivating energy and a great time to take a leap of faith, but be sure you are listening to your intuition and following your heart in the process. If things feel right, then go for it! The energy will support you to leap higher, further, and with more ease.
As tensions could be high before the Full Moon peaks, we also have to be mindful of allowing these tensions to influence and affect our relationships in a negative way.
If you are feeling overly tense or wound-up, bring some self-care practices into your routine rather than lash out at those around you.
Put some preventative measures into place, especially if you know you need to have a difficult conversation around this time.
Sometimes writing your thoughts out on paper are a great way to clear tension and to get things off your chest. Aim to write for at least 20 minutes or more so you can dump out all that is bothering you and all that is building up inside of you.
This Full Moon is a wonderful release point, and while tensions will be high, we can use this frequency to snip the strings that have made us feel stuck or blocked.
If you have felt held down, held back, or inhibited in any way this year, this Full Moon is your chance to say no more, and to free yourself from it all. This is your chance to spread your wings and soar high into a new level of success.
Aries is the leader, and we have to become the leader of our own lives and our own destiny. We carve out our future every day based on the actions we take, the thoughts we think, and the vibration we emit.
On a potent and magical day like this, we can use these lunar energies to accelerate our journey and to keep advancing higher.
The time to step up is now, and it all begins with removing the limits you have given yourself and knowing that you can do anything.
