Super Full Moon
Full Moon in Aries
Harvest Moon/Rose Moon
October 15/16, 2016
As the fall birds chipper in the fall breeze, the weather forecasters are predicting that the colors of the leaves will be majestic due to the extreme heat. The leaves begin to turn orange, and brown, with very little yellow to recall. Even as fall arrives, the season changes are late.
However, the cosmos always has something beautiful and grand for human kind. Embrace! Our first super full moon of 2016; our stunning sky will bring an exceptional delight on October 16, 2016 with full moon in Aries, and super moon. At approximately 12:24am EST and 9:24pm PST October 16, 2016 the moon will move into Aries at 23 degrees.
People will feel the verve of the full moon as early as 5 days before (October 10, 2016); the powerful drive might cause troubled sleep and energy. Never get a reading during this waxing period, or do anything impulsive, as your goal may be a little tilted. To receive the most positive affect of the full moon it’s best to wait out every decision. It would not be shocking that emotions will be all over the place.
Perhaps people will call it a very volatile energy, which can be as fire (fire signs) always brings some unsettled energy with it. But I always say, our willingness to cope comes from our attitude. As disturbing as this may be the last time this type of energy entered our cosmos was one degree off in October 17, 2004.
Let’s rewind as I always like to do, to recall history and pinpoint any lessons we need to learn from this energy. Hurricane Charlie, Jeanne and Frances Hug Florida causing massive damage while residents flee but are unable to run too far. Bush focuses on Florida and healthcare costs concern voters. Many evacuated after a train derails near homes with more and more Americans concerned about travel. Looking at these headlines makes me wonder what we learned from these events which have a lot of similarities to today. What are we going to repeat? But no matter how we handle things in the next few weeks, our children or our children’s children will surely be tested on October 17, 2035.
So, what is so special about this moon beside the fact that it’s the Harvest moon in the northern hemisphere and the pink moon in the southern. Let’s also dismiss that we are about 15 to 16 days from Halloween. Furthermore, the world as we know it will dramatically change in less than 23 days when a new president is elected in the United States. I am sure many of you recall that I predicted the winner of the election as early as December of 2015, and during the spring and fall of 2016. As I always say, history repeats itself otherwise it kills us; we either learn our lessons or die trying.
Hence, I don’t like to make my writing political as this is something I rarely like to touch on. The only law which I try to obey is Dharma, the Universal Law. Nevertheless, the beautiful thing about this moon is that it is the first full super moon of the year. We have already had 3 super new moons which I mentioned in my blog in December of 2015 (read about it here). The first super new moon was during the eclipse on March 9, 2016, the second was on April 7, 2016, and the last was on May 06, 2016. Thus all of our new super moons were in Spring and early Summer. Now our super moons begin in the fall and I am sure you can guess how far they will go.
October’s super full moon is the first this fall. There are two theories behind a super moon; one theory is visually, the closer to the earth is to a moon the larger and super it looks to humans which are known as (perigean). Others say that where there are 4 full moons in a season it becomes a super moon. I personally feel science cannot replace the theory of magic of the universe as everything in the universe is magic in itself.
Besides the super full moon, Hindu holidays have already begun. Navratri already passed and now Dasara has begun. Dasara is a time many Hindus do a half-fast, eating only at night in worship of Goddess Durga through Lord Rama by killing evil Rvana the following day. Goddess Durga also kills Demon Mahinshsur, basically depicting a good vs. evil theme leading its way to Dwali which will be celebrated this year on the Black moon.
The intensity of this moon could be felt as close to October 2013; remember that when fire meets air, fire usually spreads. This Libra-Aries full moon is fundamentally a divergence of two equals. The Libra motto is “I choose what is stable” while Aries has: “I want what I want and I will find power to get it”. Therefore, this moon questions if our live is balanced and what force or determination is needed to get that balance. This moon will affect all early born Aries’ and all Libras.
Those that have Aries in their chart will either end relationships or begin new ones with new plans, but they will certainly be founded on value motives which could cause future conflicts. For Aries it is a time for change, or it is to magnify what is already here. Especially for those that were born Late March, watch your health as you may get sick, ill, or just suffer from exhaustion.
The Hunters moon or rather, blood moon, powers us to consider love entirely differently and ask the question: What is love? Does the love you have live unhindered? Love does not have to be just in the area of relationships, but also our connections with people. It can even be love of work and things you have learned. Additionally, it means to be able to let go of someone or something, no matter how much you love because it needs to be set free. The past years have prompted us that alterations need to happen; that this kind of life is no longer tolerant and peaceful. We will be reminded once again that we can no longer walk in other people’s shadows.
The Aires Full moon brings to us a determination of who we are and who we are becoming. Our resolve of this meaning will be motivated around accommodating, distinguish and bringing out our very best. With it, bring out the best results through objectives and desires being granted by the universal energies. However, one thing it will bring is a path that must be monitored and there is always fury when a person goes against the etiquette of the universe. But if you follow the advice of the universe and the path that the universe is trying to lead you to, then you will follow your spiritual path in connection with the universe bringing with it a Divine light.
This full moon will cause many people to turn out their character; including animals. This type of moon has been known for fierceness, irresponsibility and domestic disputes over things that may or not exist. Because this moon focuses around the totem stages, some of us may become very argumentative in what we say or do.
The distinctiveness of this full moon is at 23 degrees Aries/Libra, which means we are coming to some sort of a decision and it is in the house of relationships, which means that an ultimate determination will be made, either to move forward with any one relationship (i.e. business friends, lovers, family etc.) or its time to end it all together because it may not be fruitful or positive.
There will be many messages from the universe, so listen closely. Libras are also known as a focus of justice through mindfulness and balance which means you should listen to your intuition. Aries is the power which is also known as an awareness of something. Remember, in the spiritual world, the Universe gave the Aries Ram divine strength of will as creator himself.
This moon is a polar opposite of two signs, whereas Libra requires synchronization in every aspect of relationships and Aires can be very reckless. Aries really yearns for contentment and has to be the best at everything while Libra wants to be elite to others.
It is my suggestion that you purchase a white and yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil and sandalwood oil, and chant Psalm 39 and Psalm 26.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all solicitations of psalms and mantras attaining the anticipated result is dependent upon the quality of intention. When it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Aries moon is:
Om Aing Kleeng Sauh
(om aaiiinng Kling Suah)
These mantras are to bring stability across every aspect of your relationships.
Please note, these are general propensities and not specific to any person. I would suggest that you contact an Astrologer for the latest update on how to handle this energy and what to expect.
Additionally, I do not claim to be an Astrologer but as a Vedic reader we must use astrological graphs as our spiritual transformation ground work as utility to give you the most objective path way to a spiritual light which is only handled by the universal powers.
For those who have had a VPA chart done during the fall eclipse, anywhere you see Aries in your chart it is the area where something is ending and something new is beginning.
Wishing you the best of this beautiful full moon.
