Full Moon in Aries
September 24, 2018
Fall is upon us; on September 22, 2018 the sun enters Libra marking the fall equinox, the first day of fall. The two days between the 22nd and 24th are great days for mother nature, and the cosmos is making sure that humanity is in check by ensuring that there is a perfect balance between the heavens and the earth.
Soon the leaves will turn brown, orange, and yellow, and their sweet smell will fill our noses with delight. Warm fuzzy sweaters and hot cocoa will be the theme for family and gatherings as we prepare for the upcoming winter.
The Libra/Aries moon will place a pinch of orange in the moon to let us know it is autumn. It seems that the Harvest Moon will make a grand entrance on September 24, 2018. Many of us may not see it, however, as it will may be hidden by the sun at approximately 3:09pm EST and 12:09pm PST at 2 degrees in Aries/Libra axis.
Enjoy this vigorous energy as the moon has never been this degree in the 20th or 21st century although coming quite close in 2007 at 3 degrees. We may not see this in the future either as the closest it will come will be at 1 degree in Aries during 2037.
As they say, Aries always liked to make magnificent entrances and exits; this time will be no exception. The full moon brings influential climaxes for Aries and those that have Aries anywhere in their VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurveda Theory), but this moon will not stop there; only because this moon has a very serious connotation. Thus, Leo and Sagittarius, where Saturn is currently according to VPAT, as well as cardinal signs (Libra, Capricorn, Aries and Cancer), will be confronted.The conflict, or shall I say the lack of responsibility in the past, is coming to haunt many of you. You must now take full ownership for your actions and bring anything from the past (i.e. relationships, plans and professional matters) to a fair-minded and just end.
Many people will feel the energy of the full moon as early as 5 days before (September 17-26, 2018) and the powerful energy could cause troubled sleep and energy. Never get a reading during the waxing period (which is between 5 days before the full moon) or do anything impulsive as your intent may be a little twisted.
Stay as calm as possible during this full moon and forgive others as they may not be in the same space as you; try to think of positives as they will support you enormously. Stay attentive on whatever is occurring around you and pay close attention to both the emotional and physical worlds.
The Aries moon is creating consciousness to bring constancy back into everyday lives; observing how much is given and if the same is returned. Additionally, this is a time of discovering, or searching for, answers that will give steadiness in areas of relationships and money. Libra energy needs a relationship and Aries energy loves to love, but with autonomy.The Harvest moon attaches humans to the earth as it is now time to harvest and pray. Native Americans found that during September it was the perfect time to harvest corn, grain, and wheat to save for the winter. The Harvest moon always comes as close as possible to the Autumn Equinox.
The Aries full moon also brings fortitude. Our propensities in this energy are supportive, disentangling, and to bring out the best in people. Temporarily, triumph for the top will manifest principles and goals. If the ambition and purpose is self-centered, without though of the consequences, there will be wrath from the universe.
Your career advancements or pursuits should have been successful, or significant, and there could have been great recognition if you have played your cards correctly. You must be very diligent in areas of money and resources as your expenses may exceed your income thus requiring you to work more. Your family may demand more of your time. There could even be a time where you may take vacations or a break from your work. If you are in business for yourself do not consider taking on more business partners or investors as they may not be beneficial for you. On the other hand, a personal relationship could have a wonderful outcome between October and November if you have not been too melodramatic or overly aggressive.
This fall it is advised for you to be calm and relaxed more so than ever as arrogance and mood swings could cause many issues in relationships that should be avoided. Any time you feel despair, depressed, or feelings of loneliness or confusion, the best method is a spiritual journey, whether physical or physiological.
Infrequent as it appears, this full moon is also known as the blood moon. People and animals may act bizarrely and/or foolishly. The blood moon has a reputation of fierceness, irresponsibility, and could cause arguments. The energy is so dangerous that it may be prudent to stay put or, alternatively, take your vacation at this time to get away for a while. Profoundly spiritual people may find it very tough to meditate or even connect with guides. Transporting positive manifestation and proclamation will be the best way to handle the energy.
The full moon is transiting at 2-3 degrees Aries/Libra. This will be the final straw that brings relationships, businesses, or friendships to powerful endings, or open a door to a new plan. There will be frequent inclinations from the universe; consequently, being observant to the messages must be an urgency.Aries full moon conveys contradictory energy. Libra needs synchronization in relationships and Aires is quick. Aries needs tranquility and yet is competitive, while Libra wants the best. Therefore, to subdue the energy and bring balance during this time I suggest some spiritual divination.
Anoint a candle with 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 the mantra is used to expand a planet or influence the harshness of rage.
During your prayers do not ask for what you want, rather, ask for what you need. Often, mantras can be difficult to pronounce, however, some of my readers have become so good with pronouncing the mantras correctly that this year I have increased the number of mantras.
The tougher the mantras which are pronounced correctly, the more powerful the energy.
Om Aing Kleeng Sauh

Those that have Aries in their chart will either end relationships or begin new ones, but they will certainly be started on value reasons which could cause future conflicts. For Aries, it is a time for transformation, or it is to expand what is already here. Especially for those that were born in late March, watch your health as you may get sick or just suffer from exhaustion.
Additionally, I do not claim to be an Astrologer but as a Vedic reader, we must use astrological graphs as our spiritual transformation groundwork and as utility to give you the most objective pathway to a spiritual light which is only handled by the universal powers.
For those who have had a VPAT chart done during the fall eclipse, anywhere you see Aries in your chart will be the area where something is ending and something new is beginning. A couple of days after the full moon is a perfect time to get an updated reading if you are an Aries or are involved with a Aries. This will assist you with your own progress or guide you in the next 3 months.
Wishing you the best of this beautiful full moon.
