Full Moon Libra/Aries: October 12, 2011 Horoscope

Libra Aries full moon 2011The Horoscope of the Full Moon in Libra Aries continues the focus on the need to decide. Libra in its nature prefers pondering and weighing and likes to find a middle ground, Aries in its nature acts before any real decision has been made. Both of them together can find the balance between jumping into action, and postponing the action to a “right” time which never comes.   Each of us has decided on something, and now it’s time to implement.

The Sun is conjunct Saturn signifying that there will not be any short cuts, and what you build must have a strong foundation, otherwise it will not hold. This full moon just asks us all to be realistic in our expectations, and in our assessment of the resources we have. Many people will experience feelings of lack: lack of supportive relationships, lack of money, and the lack of a common ground between themselves and the world.

Aries-Libra always brings up the issues of I vs. us. Us is composed by two or more I. For some reason we are used to defend this I and feel threatened by the Us, as if it takes away something from the I.

In this horoscope, Jupiter in Taurus is in opposition to Venus in Scorpio, but both are in a harmonious aspect to Pluto.  This configuration will support any long term work that starts now, any solution that will involve some planning, some determination and the knowing that good things take their own time to blossom.

This horoscope represents the clash of: I want a quick fix Now, vs. I know that a real solution will take time and effort.  Changes seem quick, but the real ones, the changes that last are those that were built over time and effort. Try and reflect on the changes that you experiences especially in relationships to other people: did you change overnight? Did you change over the years? Can you tell the difference?

For all who read: this is a good time to learn to combine quick decisions and actions, within the long term actions and goals.

Meditation points to ponder in this full moon:

What is my personal way of making decisions?

Do I make my own decisions or wait for the “world” to take them for me?

What is being a part of “us” mean to me?

Can I accept quick changes? Do I have the patience to build those changes over time?

Full Moons:

Full Moons are time to reflect, time to celebrate, and time to make friends with the night. Many of our holidays are still celebrated around full moons when the nights are naturally illuminated.  Full Moons are also the time where people get in tune with their deepest feelings, when humanity guides are transmitting the light of conciseness, understanding and compassion.

It is advised Not to start any new project within the 24 hours of the full moon, but rather use that day for mundane tasks, while enjoying an acute sense of meditation.  Full Moons are times for reflection.

Take a look at your chart, locate the 18th degree of the Cardinal signs, any planet on this degree will be affected by the full moon. In affected I mean, understood in a new way, rather than acted upon. The action will follow when the point is activated next time by a transiting planet.
