O Stars Above: Aries Full Moon

Relationships and a Lightening Bolt of Surprise


Managing ourselves can be a full time job these days, right?! Well, here comes the Aries' full moon (Oct 5 at 11:40 a.m. PDT) offering reality checks on just how well we are doing – in relationship to our relationships. Full moons bring to light what we can't see and this one comes with feedback from our near and dear. Pointing out the errors of our ways may come with a polite smile from the Sun and Mercury in diplomatic Libra, but don't blow it off.

Aries, the sign of 'me' and Libra, the sign of 'we,' are at opposite ends of one line. If either gets too far out on its end, compromises are hard to come by. So pay attention to where you stand, what you hear and what results you want.

Spicy, Uranus in fiery Aries teaches us a lesson in finding courage to break past our barriers of playing small. But, as we learn new lessons, perhaps, we overstated our positions. Uranus' gifts often come out of the blue - like a lightening bolt.

Giving Uranus extra juice, expansive Jupiter wraps up a year in Libra. He's opened doors to us of more social interactions and networks which means we have new choices of who to hang with and who to cut since a year ago. The combination of Uranus and Jupiter with the full moon could end up resembling a game of musical chairs.

Questions to ask under the light of this moon: have I overstated my case, and been too pushy about my point of view? Have I forgotten that others, like my dear best friends and dearest spouse, have view points too? Or do I have friends so busy espousing their opinions that they don't realize they are about to be voted off my island?

Handled with Libran diplomacy, a new balance could be found. Or like Jupiter shifting to Scorpio (October 10), we could wave good-bye and move on.

Horoscopes for October 5-19

Libra, you're having your moment in the spotlight but, alas, must focus on your sweetie, too. Story of your life, but a behind-the-scenes waltz with Mars and Venus is so romantic!Squeeze the last bit of fabulous connections out of Jupiter in Libra - walk through newly opened doors.

Scorpio, get out and mingle just for the fun of it because you are in the flow. You can feel an electrical charge building but things are not ready for prime time. Shore up work in practical ways, review work details, budgets, timelines. Keep your head in case of surprises.

Sagittarius, autumn brings many harvests thanks to two years of hard work. Business friends and fun could find a way to mingle and give you a breather but don't go wild and crazy – it's still business. A guardian angel comes into play.

Capricorn, work successes and allies are active, but unexpected excitement at home demands attention. Work may encounter delays but don't push it. Let things work out on their own. Delay may actually bring you more power so don't be your own worse enemy, at work or home.

Aquarius, fly your latest, greatest idea by close, old friends. Then listen closely to what they say. A dream is becoming clearer and doors may be opening but, this is not a “build it and they will come” time. Make a pragmatic plan. Get real and go slow. This is your upcoming trend.

Pisces, it's time to know your own worth and align with business partners who share your values. Don't sell yourself out by either over- or under-estimating your worth. Close relationships are your guardian angels so listen to them. Work behind closed door for the big reveal to come.

Aries, take a bow, it's your moon. If you feel a little vulnerable, don't get all chest out and pushy. Lead with your dearest wishes and maybe, even show your heart. Your spouse has your back and good words to use. Get in step with work routines and colleagues.

Taurus, take a few days off before the full moon. Your inner world is tangled up with the Collective Mind and it's busy and loud in there. A little R & R gives you time to tend to inner business and could lead to a sensual dance. Tango, anyone?

Gemini, friends may need more attention than you can give them, because baby, girls just wanna have fun. Somehow your sense of humor and the right words settle the mob down and lightens things up. Seriously, you have a silver tongue. What other problems could you solve now?

Cancer, that moon spotlights you at work and you are delegating like the executive-minded force you are. Home, too, needs diplomatic words and your tender touch to smooth the brow of dear ones. Warning: The spouse may be especially sensitive!

Leo, neighbors, siblings, barista and hairdresser could use your diplomatic skills. The moon calls you to take the highest view possible of how individualistic people can be. If they're stressing you out, take a time out. Let your roots sink deep and dreams fly high.

Virgo, you are dancing through life with a bit of flow and balance, and give and take working for you. Let people hand you on to the next perfect person to open even more doors. Be your own best friend and value yourself like you do your BFFs. If you must, organize your finances.
