The Full Hunter’s Moon in the fiery Aries rises on October 9 at 4:54 p.m ET inviting you to heal outmoded definitions of leadership, relationship, and change.
Change begins from within as we continue to reclaim our ability to choose a different path and release the limiting patterns of ancestral disempowerment. As we reclaim our power to choose, we own our inner leader and show up differently in all of our relationships.
The moon goes through many phases throughout the month. The Full Moon is a time of exalted emotional intensity and a time for clearing and integration. Be patient with what comes up, observe, express, and give yourself time to integrate. Each New or Full Moon lands in a particular zodiac sign giving it its own flavor and overarching theme. This theme is about embodying our, ” I AM” energy and moving forward with courage, confidence, and renewed passion! What’s going on this Full Moon in Aries?
Tension builds with the Sun (identity) and Venus (love, values) in Libra (justice, arts) opposite this Full Moon in Aries (warrior/initiator.) So, we are re-evaluating our own needs versus the needs of others – and how to balance our priorities. Chiron (the wounded healer) in Aries conjuncts the Full Moon highlighting where we have felt slighted by authority or oppressed in our natural leadership skills in business, career, family, or even in the power struggles within our relationships.
Mercury the messenger is now direct; expect better communication juju. Pluto is also direct as of October 8th lending its transformative magic to our forward movement.
Why is the Hunter Moon important?
The Hunter’s moon name comes from an intersection of North American, Colonial, and European roots. Traditionally, it indicated the time to go hunting in preparation for the cold winter ahead, according to Farner’s Almanac.
To look forward to winter, we must look back to see what we’ve accomplished as well. This Full Moon is the culmination of intentions set six months ago during the New Moon in Aries, on April 1st. Look back and explore where you were at the time and what you were hoping to manifest. Some of the journaling prompts to explore are:
“ What goals or intentions have come to fruition in the last six months?”
“ How can I redefine what leadership means to me and embrace my personal power?”
“ Where am I overly focused on my needs or others’ needs and how can I come into greater balance?
