Full Moon Vibes
Full Moons bring an energetic culmination that can manifest as things ‘coming to completion’ in your life. It can be a time for important personal realizations or the achievement of milestones. The heightened energy of the Full Moon also reveals where unconscious emotional experiences are provoking you to excesses or interfering with your sense of objectivity.
Use the energy of Full Moons to reflect on how you find balance between energies of the signs where the Moon and the Sun are placed. Since the Moon rules your emotions, notice where fear or the desire for security are driving you. These periods of intensity increase our ability to gain understanding and self-awareness. They also draw our attention to negative behavior patterns and/or belief systems that are ready to heal.
The Aries Full Moon occurs at 10:52pm EST on Monday, September 24th. Be sure to double check for the time of the Full Moon in your location!
Aries energy represents our impulses, our desire for freedom, our sense of independence and the expression of our personal needs. It is bold, takes action confidently (although often without a well-thought strategy); it shoots from the hip. Aries rules the physical body, our mind (our sense of self) and our gut instincts.
The October ’18 Full Moon occurs at 2 degrees of Aries, so it’s also on the cusp to Pisces and will trigger manifestations in both signs.
Pisces energy represents the unconscious mind, compassion, empathy, selflessness or losing oneself, intuition and our connection to a universal unconscious that unites all living things – past, present and future. Pisces energy is introspective, and this Full Moon in Pisces can bring insights and maturity. It can also force you to confront a truth you have been avoiding.
Themes of the September 24th Full Moon:
- Internal exploration and the discovery of personal truths
- Impulsively expressing your opinions and desires
- Overcoming self-doubt
- A surge in creativity, intuition and prophetic dreams
- Making important personal decisions
- A desire for greater freedom and independence
- Retreating into your own inner world to escape reality
- Feeling a fundamental need to have a greater sense ‘purpose’ in your life
Because this Full Moon occurs on the cusp to Pisces, it also echoes some of the themes of the most recent Pisces Full Moon. For more info click here

Exaggerations or Shadows of Aries/Pisces Energy:
The Moon influences the emotions which guide our desires and decisions around our sense of security.
With the heightened energetic influence of the Full Moon, be mindful of these excessive tendencies so that you may work consciously to bring your emotions into balance:
- Overconfidence or an inflated ego
- Hopelessness; an overwhelming sense of sadness or despair
- Retreating into the world of imagination as an escape from reality
- Neglecting to communicate one’s feelings or needs
- Struggling to tackle too much without asking for help
Aries energy is confident, independent and headstrong but can also alienate others through aggressive or competitive behavior when it is exaggerated. This is a great time to take control of your situation, to make positive changes for yourself or to express your needs and desires confidently. On the other hand, remember that you can benefit from inviting others to help out or lend their creativity towards solving challenges you are facing. You’re not alone!
Pisces energy is intense and complex, so this energy brings the potential to feel yourself pulled into an emotional chasm. Be mindful of your susceptibility to ‘catastrophizing’, nihilistic thinking, escapism or a tremendous sense of being overwhelmed by the state of affairs in the world.
Peace and Blessings!
