This month’s Full Moon (September 29th) will be zinging with the revolutionary energy of the Uranus/Pluto square. The Sun in Libra will have just finished opposing Uranus in Aries (and squaring Pluto in Capricorn). Then it will get hit with an opposition to the Moon at 7 degrees Aries (the Full Moon).
Should you be nervous? All depends on how you feel about finishing up. If you read this blog regularly, you know that I emphasis this fact, ad nauseam: Full Moons are about endings and culminations. And the Uranus/Pluto square is all about accelerating towards the future, by disassembling decaying situations/fears/habits/relationships, etc.
The Sun in Libra (being rocked by Uranus/Pluto) can signify the final buildup that was triggered on September 19th. What was happening for you around then? Did you receive a wake-up call? The last chapter is about to be written on this Full Moon, when you will be compelled to finish up and start fresh (Aries).
And here’s another fun layer of symbolism; this will be the Harvest Moon, so called because it will be the Full Moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox (occurring on September 22nd, when the Sun moves into Libra). In the season of harvest, people brought in the crops and figured out how to make them last throughout the winter. This reminds us that Libra is about much more than being pretty. It’s the sign of evaluating what’s happened, and figuring out what you need to do next (in order to maintain balance).
To help you out, keep the symbolism of the Harvest Moon in mind, and apply it to wherever it falls in your chart (where Aries is). What are you reaping? It will be connected to something you’ve sown over the past month or so. What must be left behind? The season’s over…time to take it indoors. What can you bring with you, and how can you make it work with the new order (courtesy of Uranus/Pluto)? Whatever you receive on this Full Moon will be a direct result of what you’ve given out. It doesn’t matter at this point if it’s fabulous, delightful, tragic or embarrassing. Now you have to figure out how to make it work. Aries gets on with it.
If you have planets between 5-7 degrees Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn, get ready to harvest.
