Full Moon in Aries – Initiation

I feel like this month’s full moon (13th, 22:07 BST)is a story of two sets of competing plot lines. On the one hand we have the Aries/ Libra axis activated, bringing our attention to where we want to move forward, and how we can best do that. And then there is the Cancer/ Capricorn axis also activated. All 4 cardinal signs. the urge to initiate is strong. But initiate what?

The answer(s) might come from dreams, or from journeying/ pathworking. This time from the full moon to the new moon in Scorpio is potent for dreamtime. Make sure you’re taking the opportunity by getting enough sleep.

First Quarter Moon in Capricorn – Work/ Work Balance

The First Quarter Moon lands in Capricorn, conjunct native Saturn (5th 5:46pm BST). I find First Quarter moons always have an aspect of challenge to them, but this one will feel that way more than most. With the moon also forming a sextile to dreamy Neptune in Pisces and trine Uranus in Taurus, there is a strong urge to do something different, to break free of the everyday, same old, same old. And that’s great, but the new thing, if it’s worth your effort, will also need work. The grass is not necessarily greener. You need to feed your current lawn too.

It’s all about finding your work/ work balance. That may be between your day job and your side hustle, or parenting and employment, or self-employment and home maintenance. You get the idea. There’s work, and there’s work. And there’s no right answer. Try and have some fun with it.
