On October 9th, 2022, we have a Full Moon at 16° Aries.
The Full Moon is conjunct Chiron and is opposite Venus. This is an emotionally charged Full Moon that will expose our deepest wounds. Venus, in domicile in Libra, is there to support us in the healing process.
Aries is the sign of “I am”. Chiron is where we feel wounded and inadequate. The Full Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron will stir our identity wound: those feelings of shame, inadequacy, that we are not enough, that we are invisible, that our existence doesn’t matter.
Aries energy is our instinct to take action based on what feels right in the present moment.
There is wisdom behind Aries’ instinct. The Aries energy is so alive, it is so rooted in the present moment, that it immediately grasps the inevitability of a situation. And from that place of full engagement and aliveness, taking action is a natural next step.
In our Pluto in Capricorn society, where every gesture, every look, every word is scrutinized, acting upon our Aries drives and impulses is oftentimes judged and criticized. People are being canceled right, left and center.
When you are criticized or judged for simply being who you are, remember that your instincts, feelings, and actions are 100% legitimate. There is nothing wrong with you. There is truth in every little thing that you are, say and do.
And when you judge and criticize others, reflect on how, indirectly, you’re denying yourself the right to ‘be’.
At the Full Moon in Aries, ask yourself: how are you being judged? And then go even deeper, and ask yourself, how are you judging others?
Judgment is a symptom of an unhealed identity wound. We judge ourselves and others when we don’t feel loved and accepted.
As Venus, the planet of love, shines a light upon the Full Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron, we are offered a unique opportunity to heal our identity wound.
We can do years of therapy and go around in circles, OR we can make a decision to love ourselves enough, and move on with our lives. Under the loving beam of the Full Moon, deep wounds can heal overnight.
In the process of facing your wounds with Aries courage and honesty, you may come to the conclusion that there are some wounds that won’t heal. And that’s ok too.
