Some lunations slip in quietly but not today’s Full Moon in Aries! The energy of this lunation infuses the whole day with cardinal assertiveness. The Aries Moon opposes Mercury in Libra at daybreak and Sun-Moon opposition happens late tonight. Oppositions are always between compatible signs, unlike squares. Aries and Libra can work together quite effectively because they are aware of what the other brings to the table. Aries excels at prioritizing and knows how to be decisive, Libra’s weakness. Libra understands why compromise is the key to good teamwork and Aries appreciates that. The tricky part today is Uranus in Aries conjoining the Moon shortly before she reaches fullness, bringing out Aries’s naturally independent side. This makes respecting our partner’s uniqueness critical to being able to stay together. 🌠☽♈🌠
Like it or not, the two other aspects happening today revive old issues from the past few years when we endured Uranus squaring Pluto. Long before dawn the Libra Sun opposes Uranus in Aries and it will be early evening when Mercury in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. As usual, it is up to us whether we choose to get caught up with old grievances or finally decide to let them go for once and for all. Something to keep in mind is often holding on to anger and grief usually proves more harmful to the one holding on than whatever, or whoever, caused the problem in the first place.
