About the Full Moon in Aries

Each Full Moon occurs in a different sign each month, and they take on the energy and the themes of that sign. When the Full Moon occurs in Aries, the ideas of passion, action, creativity, and forward motion are emphasized, making this an exciting time to be alive!

Aries is the Cardinal Fire sign of Spring – as well as the first sign of the zodiac.

This sign is all about taking charge, getting things done, following our dreams, and finding our passions. While the sign of Aries connects to the ideas of new beginnings, a Full Moon is linked with the idea of letting go and accepting any doors that may be closing in our lives.

Although it can feel stressful or challenging letting situations or relationships exit our lives, it’s important to remember that we have to let go of certain things to make room for the things we want most in life.

Think about the goals you most deeply want to fulfill, about the romance that you crave, your dream job, the city or home you would die to live in. These are all possible, within your grasp, but you will have a hard time holding onto these thoughts, ideas, and desires if you’re clinging to situations or relationships that are no longer serving you.

That’s why it’s so important to allow yourself to let go, even when it’s painful – and that’s the lesson during this Full Moon in Aries.

The Full Moon begins bringing your goals and dreams to fruition – those things you began to manifest during the last New Moon. The Full Moon in Aries may cause a flare in tempers or frustration, but these emotions and experiences are necessary to bring you closer to the life you’ve always dreamed of.

Who Will Be Most Affected by this Full Moon in Aries?

Fire signs are likely to feel the passion and the heat of this energy most intensely because their energy is connected to that same warmth that accompanies the Aries Full Moon.

Leo, Sagittarius, and especially Aries may feel a surge of emotion that can cause tension or creative passion – depending on how they choose to work with it.

However, every sign under the Sun will feel this zesty energy fill the air around them. Regardless of your Sun sign, this is your chance to embrace the ending chapters that will allow you to start writing the book of your life.

What to Expect During the Aries Full Moon

There are certain emotions, events, and challenging energies that may accompany this transit; but, if you learn how to work with them and make the most of it, you can sail through this transit like the skilled captain of your ship of dreams.

Relationships May Change

Have you been experiencing tensions or frustrations in certain relationships? Does it sometimes feel like you just can’t get through to a partner or a friend? This Full Moon in Aries may act as the catalyst for changes within these relationships – which may be positive or negative, depending on how you choose to view these shifting energies.

For instance, this Full Moon has the potential to help you let go of a bond that is no longer serving you, helping you make room for the new relationships that may be more fulfilling, healthier, and more connected.

The Full Moon is at its most illuminated, shining a light on things you may not have seen before – like infidelity, disrespect, or a lack or intimate connection. Aries will help you follow your intuition; but, try to make sure that you gather all of the necessary information before making any big decisions.

You will get truths sent to you during this time, and the Fire energy from Aries allows you to do something with them. Use them wisely, use them well, and expect the miracles to be abundant. Give what you hope to receive in love during this time - if you do so freely and without expectations, the Aries energy will be quick to satisfy you in return!

Information Overload

As the Full Moon shines its light on our lives, we may discover more than just information regarding our relationships. You may pick up on crucial information during this time that directly relates to key issues or themes in your life.

This information will help you close up the chapters that you need to move on from to begin moving towards the life you’ve always wanted. Ignoring the information that crops up right now will only cause more issues.

The Universe may be sending you a test or two with this information overload, and it’s your responsibility to take the hints that are flowing into your life. It may be your own feelings or emotions that are coming to light right now – trust the process.

The Circle of Life Continues

We’ve briefly discussed the closing windows followed by the opening doors associated with a Full Moon in Aries. Aries encourages new experiences, like jobs, relationships, living spaces, or a new routine in general. But the Full Moon has to make room for these things by helping you release the relationships or situations that are no longer serving you.

This is the time to prepare yourself to let these things go.

Clinging to them will only make it harder for you to get where you want to be. Try releasing your own emotions surrounding these situations as well to encourage yourself to let go of any emotional baggage that may be holding you back from your ideal future.

The Full Moon in Aries is about closing chapters that are no longer serving your highest purpose. What are your biggest dreams? What are your goals? Where do you want success in your life….right now?

The Full Moon in Aries will clean out what is blocking you, and give you the inspiration, fire, and action plan to get them out of your life - for good!

What circles are you noticing in life right now?

Listen to Your Heart

A Full Moon in Aries can create feelings of heat and even tension, but if you harness this energy and use it for good, you can turn this fire into creative passion. This planetary event creates powerful energy that is unavoidable, so turn it into motivation and artistic endeavors that will bring you closer than ever to your goals and dreams.

This is a great time for manifesting, releasing, paying attention to your psychic sense. You may receive visions or prophetic dreams right now, so it’s crucial that your pay attention to them and use these visions as inspiration.

Let Your Fire Blaze

Fiery and passionate, there is a certain sense of luck associated with the element of Fire. They say that fortune favors the bold, and this is the perfect time to allow yourself to be the most genuine, authentic version of you yet.

The element of Fire is inherently enthusiastic and expressive, so this is not the time to stifle that fire within yourself. Finding a creative, inspiring outlet for these emotions will help you avoid taking out your anger or frustrations on other people.

Expressing yourself creatively during this transit may even help you connect to a new passion or outlet that you had not before considered.

What You Should Avoid

While the Full Moon may be at its fullest for only a day, the days leading up to and following the Full Moon can carry the same intense, emotional energy. This may not be the best time to let your emotions run wild. Try to maintain a sense of cool and calm during this time to avoid creating unnecessary tension or drama in your life.

If you don’t try to reel your feelings in a bit, you may end up taking them out on the people you love most.

There are many ways, however, to allow yourself a form of healthy expression. Physical exercise, meditation, calming music, and crystal healing are all excellent ways to bring relaxation and harmony back into your mind and body.

Full Moon in Aries Ritual

Since this is such a fantastic time for emotional release, this ritual will require the use of obsidian, a stone that helps you let go of any negativity or overwhelming feelings that might be holding you back.

Step 1

Gather a piece of obsidian, a candle, and a stick of sage or Palo Santo before you begin. This ritual can be performed inside, but you may get more healing out of it if you perform this ritual under the light of the Full Moon.

Step 2

Seated comfortably, light your candle and focus on the blazing wick. Let yourself become mesmerized by the flame, focusing on the warmth flowing from its tip.

Step 3

Now, light your sage or Palo Santo and let the smoke waft over your body, clearing it of any negative energy.

Step 4

Finally, hold your obsidian in your left hand and imagine all of your troubles, cares, worries, and negativity flowing from your body, outward and into the stone. Obsidian absorbs any frustrations or stressors and neutralizes them, allowing them to escape from your body.

Once you feel rested and healed, look to the Moon and say a silent “thank you” for its guidance and wisdom.

Harness Your Emotions During this Full Moon

While the Full Moon can be an emotionally overwhelming time for some people, it can also be the catalyst that launches you into a new project or chapter in your life – especially if that Full Moon occurs in Aries. So, take advantage of this beautiful, healing energy to make the most of it.

If you do feel overwhelmed, try practicing activities that lift your spirits and bring joy into your heart, like watching a funny movie or eating your favorite kind of ice cream. This is a time to be gentle with yourself and others and remind yourself that there is always something new and exciting just around the corner.

What are you willing to release in order to make your dreams come true?
