Moon Astrology with Bekah Finch TurnerEquinox: Wednesday September 23rd

Aries Full Moon/Eclipse: Sunday September 27th (full moon at 9/27 @ 11:52 pm PDT)

If I had to pick a theme for these three powerful events, it would be:

You are not alone.

It seems that way sometimes, doesn't it? That you really are in this by yourself. Especially when things get hard and messy, as they sometimes do. Aries is the warrior of the zodiac. She is the first of the signs, triumphing light over dark, as she carries the banner of winter ending and spring beginning.

In her full moon form, always appearing close to the Autumnal equinox, she is less comfortable. The light is diminishing, and with the fourth and final of a total lunar eclipse tetrad, her fire will be completely put out.. or at least, it will appear that way.

Aries is fierce, independent and insatiable in her desire. Ruled by Mars and cardinal fire, she is the heat in our bellies that stirs us to action, to laughter and to rage. She is the leader and she loves that role. I carry her as my moon sign and I can tell you, the moon is a hard place for the hot-tempered ram. The moon requests our softening to the mystery, our syncing with others and the cycles of life. Lunar energy is receptive, for the moon does not make her own light, she merely reflects the sun back at us, and is always half hidden herself. When Aries wears her moon cloak, she is forced to slow down, she is forced to flow, rather than burn, and she is beckoned to look deeper than her usual shallow yet intense pursuit of passion in the moment.

This full moon eclipse has a lot of people nervous. It is a final curtain of an energetic initiation and it is completing in the sign of powerful new beginnings. Our culture is so Mars dominated, anyway, our selfish obsessions with power, competition and prestige coming to a head over a planet in desperate need of healing and millions of beings trying to make a stand for a new way of living. Some might say the time of Aries is past, that we need to shift our collective consciousness and they are afraid the old way will not go out without a fight; after all, it IS Aries. But Aries is not all self-centered victory. Especially as the Moon. She is a mother who wants to protect her family. She is a seeker of truth. She is youth and youth can grow up.

What better time to stand at this cross roads between immature wants and wisdom needs? Between the ego and it's designs and the collective conscious and it's evolution than Autumn Equinox, falling just days before the eclipse.

Equinox calls us into community, into our center. It asks for a pause to reflect, to find gratitude, rather than regret or lack and to fill ourselves and our families with light before the earth turns her other cheek towards the sun.

At this pivotal moment on one of the most intense days of the year, my intent for the Aries full moon is to challenge the mighty ram to take one more big, fiery summer breath and then go deep into the darkness as though falling into an embrace. She does not have to lead the fight. She does not have to fight back. She does not have to fight at all. We do not have to fight at all — and we are not alone.

Harness the fire of the night in celebration, ritual,  revelry. Come together to laugh and share in the gratitude of the moment. Autumn Equinox is on Wednesday, the full moon is on Sunday. Make this a week of sacred community. Call forth your loved ones, your like-minded warriors. Gather in person, in dreams, on the phone, over Skype, or in meditation.

We do not have to wield a sword aimlessly toward the eclipse-blackened sky. We do not have to hide and shield ourselves from the unseen foes and fears that plague our hearts or minds. We can hold hands and circle closely. There is power in numbers. There is magic in celebration. Even if you feel like you are by yourself, that no one could help or understand, I challenge you to try. Big changes keep coming, time is moving so fast now. You do not have to do it by yourself. Aries only thinks she is better off alone. But I have seen her face in ritual and she lights up in a way no battle lust can touch.

Please remember, you are not alone. Not on this full moon, not ever. Warriors are stronger when they move together toward a common dream, when they are equal and protecting what they care for. Come together and dance. Come together and pray. Come together and breathe the light of love, despite the darkness.

Many blessings for an auspicious Autumn and Full moon,
