Aries Season with a Full Moon in Libra illuminates Relationships. Our relationship with ourselves highly conditions our relationships with others. What we believe, what we feel, what we think, how we act – are how we relate. For most of us, it’s all a highly subjective experience. Life is mostly filtered through our own lenses.
The Aries Season holds the energy to support us towards a time of greater personal focus and self-discovery. It’s a time of initiating new beginnings, taking chances, having adventures, and basically BEING in the exploration of the Self. It’s a time when we are guided to become more self-aware and self-centered; to allow ourselves to be the center and, therefore, get perspective on what is orbiting around your world. It’s a time to make choices. To choose what it is that you want or do not want. Who are you? What is your desire? What do you identify with? What gives you purpose? These are Aries’s questions resounding in the Season of the Libra Full Moon.
Naturally, as the Libra Full Moon comes to its peak, we too can begin to reach a point of clearer recognition of who we are in relationship to others. People are our greatest teachers reflecting on us like a mirror of self exactly who we are, where we are, and often where we are going. Others have a way of revealing our blind spots and our shadows, as well as our greatness and beauty.
The balance presented by the Aries/Libra axis is about the two-fold of being free to have a personal individual experience of yourself to get to know and understand yourself deeper; to have an identity and a purpose to fight and to live for while being able to connect with others in the contrast and contradictory experience of relating to another. Libra allows us to see ourselves in the eyes of another and experience ourselves through another. While also gives us the opportunity to come out of ourselves to understand others and to gain perspective of both ourselves and them through the connection and the reflection.
“No man is an island, entire of itself.”
With the Sun in Aries with Chiron currently making its eight-year sojourn through Aries, the sign of the Warrior, the sign of the birth into ego as well as the ego’s development and exploration, here in the Aries season, we can find an intensified confrontation with the wounds of the ego, and the pain and the suffering found within our ego attachments and identifications. Here is where we can find ourselves in the healing and the crisis of these very types of wounds. Therein is precisely where the Warrior archetype of Aries can be focused on fighting and winning the battle.
This current time of the heavily occupied Pisces with Jupiter, closing in on the culmination of a thirteen-year cycle with Neptune, asks us to surrender and accept the “bigger” things that we cannot control. The things that are out of our hands, the things beyond us, bigger than us, and those things that can often feel like life just playing its hand on us or like getting caught in the “cosmic joke” of it all.
Life does seem to have a mind of its own, and here we are each as players in the game of life.
As Mars and Venus will also join in Pisces throughout the next month, COMPASSION is key. Find strength in it. Use as the medicine to heal. Speak it as the voice of love that we all so deeply need.
