This Full Moon cycle fosters an atmosphere of aspiration and clarity that empowers us to establish a stable foundation for growth. By embracing possibilities that resonate with our nature, we can attain outcomes that fulfill our greatest potential.

This week ask yourself: How can I grow in alignment with my true nature amidst a flurry of ideas?

The Aries/Libra polarity involves the validation of one's unique nature while also collaborating with others, forming partnerships, and nurturing inclusive thinking. The New Moon at 0° Aries started a powerful Cardinal cycle, bursting with new ideas. However, the Full Moon now offers a wider perspective and a readiness to act on what has been developing over the past two action-packed weeks.

As the Sun moves towards a conjunction with Jupiter in Aries, the planet of growth and expansion, we can adopt a relaxed but alert attitude. It’s best to stay open to new ideas and expansion while not getting swept up in the activity. Sun/Jupiter conjunctions occur only once a year, making it a powerful time to pursue new ventures and expand your horizons.

Mars, the ruler of Aries, is positioned at 5° Cancer, trine Saturn at 3° Pisces, emphasizing that many of these new ideas will have practical value. Additionally, Mercury at 3° Taurus sextiles both Mars and Saturn, allowing us to see more clearly than we have in quite a while, and to think in grounded and practical ways. The Mars-Saturn trine is connected to taking action that recognizes the current reality, with attention to boundaries and rules.

The presence of Venus in Taurus during this cycle is also a reminder to value and cultivate the things in life that bring a sense of stability and groundedness. If progress is rooted in practicality, it can positively impact our personal security, home environment, and partnerships.

To better understand how the Full Moon affects a particular chart, it is important to determine what house it occupies and what aspects it has to the Natal Chart.
