There’s an interesting phenomenon that begins with the Full Moon in Aries on October 22nd. Our last Full Moon was also in Aries (September 23, 2010) and was at 0 Aries. The next Full Moon will fall in the 29th degree of Aries, setting in motion a trail of Full Moons in the last degrees of their sign. That sure doesn’t give us much time to complete activities related to the Full Moon’s sign. There’s a gift here, though, that we can make great use of and it starts with a question that has no merit:
What if the Moon was in Retrograde?
The Moon and Sun are never in retrograde motion. That’s the first thing we learn when we start learning about retrogrades. Only the planets retrograde ~ never the lights. Yes, it’s a ridiculous question. But two Full Moons in a row give us an opportunity to look back on what the results of our efforts at the last Full Moon were ~ a time to review, just as in a retrograde.
Where was your focus during the first Full Moon in Aries back in September?
- How did you do?
- Was progress made toward a goal that required physical activity?
- If anger issues were involved this past month, were they resolved to your liking?
- Was balance brought to partnership issues?
- Did you or your partner get lost in those issues, or was equality maintained?
Those are a few questions to review. Start now while the Moon is in Aires and maybe this coming Full Moon will shed some much needed light on the same old situation you were involved with at the last Full Moon.
An hour after the Full Moon in Aries, the Moon slides into Taurus. She’ll want to dig her heels in and take a stand. Please remember to be kind to your partner. It takes two to tango, after all.
Joining the Moon in Taurus, the Sun enters Scorpio on Saturday. This is a very fixed combination, Taurus and Scorpio. If you’re still angry about some situation you’re in, the fixed energy could create a “Mexican standoff” attitude and you’ll find yourself at an impasse with both parties refusing to budge. If you reach this point, important decisions have to be made. Take the time during these final Moon in Aries days to review what it is you’d really like to accomplish. How does Libra come into play? What’s fair, what’s just, and what benefits everyone? The answers may surprise you.
Watch your actions and mindset during this coming Taurus Moon. They just may be the issues that are of importance to you at the Full Moon in Taurus on November 21st.
