The October 1 2020 Harvest Full Moon in Aries Asks Us to Balance Needs of Initiation, Independence & Compromise

The month of October kicks off with a firey full moon asking us to balance our needs (Aries) with those of others (Libra). Given that these two are action oriented signs, I expect people to making decisions to take quick action (Aries). Being the first sign of the zodiac, Aries needs to DO. He acts quickly and decisively—never looking back. It doesn’t matter if he’s bruised and beaten up. The bravery of Aries asks us to forge ahead despite the odds.

As a result, this full moon wants us to move ahead—no matter the cost! It reveals turning points where we decide to either a.) take things previously planted to a new level or b.) appreciate them for what they + let them go completely & get ready for the next.

However, and it’s a big h.o.w.e.v.e.r…..

The ruler of the full moon story (Mars) is going retrograde and caught up in a very difficult position. So it might be a tad difficult to get to precisely where you want to go. 

Both of the players of this moon story, Aries and Libra push to get things done. They take a totally different approach but each of them makes things happen. In order to find our way through the next maze, the Sun (in Libra) and Moon (in Aries) are asking us to consider a team approach. 

Being the Harvest Moon, it’s time to reap the rewards of seeds we planted back in late March – early April (the time of the Aries New Moon). I‘m sure we all remember April …. that’s when the true difficulty of 2020 became most apparent. But many people began important initiations then. They become pioneers of 2020 and planted new seeds. There was also a new fight that began surrounding what we truly believed in. In the face of the most difficult adversity, we came head to head with what was worth fighting for — and what wasn’t.

People, places and things have died since April — but entirely new things have begun to take their place. 

A new turning point has arrived once again. One that asks us to continue to fight for what we want and believe in. But some questions need to be asked. What is rightfully yours? What is necessary to share? Where do you need compromise and team effort to take it to the next level?

This October 1 2020 Harvest Full Moon in Aries will be showing you the signs. But it’ll be up to you to take the message, use it to bring in your harvest and lead you in the next! As a special note, this will be the first of 2 full moons in October. The second one takes place on October 31.
