Full Moon today!

full-moon.jpgThe Moon is full today at 4:03 pm EDT with the Moon at 22 degrees Aries opposing the Libra Sun. Under the influence of the Full Moon, the Aries influence of the Moon supersedes the solar power of Libra and injects a note of individuality and primacy of one’s own needs (Aries) over the desire for harmony that Libra prefers. 

Wherever this Full Moon falls in your chart, the issues of that astrological house will be energized and receive a powerful dose of inspiration and enthusiasm as the fire of Aries is injected into your life. You may find yourself feeling a little more courageous, a little more adventurous than you normally are.  Aries is willful and desires immediate action in order to fulfill our desires.   
The Moon is exactly sextile Neptune here, facilitating creativity and a spiritual understanding of the Aries need for courage and adventure. Aries is simple in nature – enthusiastic and courageous, though impatient. The Neptune influence is a softening factor that adds a note of compassion and intuition to the boldness of Aries. A trine of Saturn (form and structure) from Jupiter (expansive optimism) provides a methodology to achieve our goals and take advantage of new opportunities to fulfill our dreams and desires.

    Lynn, you say “wherever the full moon falls in your chart …”
    Can you explain how one figures out where a current full moon falls in one’s birth chart? Is that something that’s easy to determine, or does it require a trip to a friendly neighborhood astrologer?

    This Full Moon was exact on my South Node in the 9th. You’re right on about the energy boost!

    MK – you can get a free copy of your birthchart at, then look to see which of the twelve houses contains the 22 degree of Aries, that’s where the moon is in your chart.

    My daughter’s natal moon is at 22 degrees, Aries – in her 10th house. I wonder if that means that she would be very emotional – especially on today’s full moon.
