Tonight’s Full Moon is at perigee, which means it is the closest to the Earth on its orbit, and is a Supermoon. Supermoons can appear 15% larger than regular full moons. Tonight is also a Total Lunar Eclipse, where the moon will appear to turn blood red – hence the name, Blood Moon. It’s also known as the Harvest Moon. The moon will be at 4 degrees 40 Aries tonight – opposite the Sun in Libra, which is also conjunct the super galactic center (at 2 degrees Libra).
Full Moons are areas of culmination, graduation, illumination, and show what we have arrived at, learned, and are ready to leave behind. Because this is a Total Lunar Eclipse, it will also illuminate the areas of our unconscious that are ruled by Aries. This can mean reviewing (especially in Mercury retrograde, until Oct 9th) how we are being too self-centered, self-serving, self-absorbed, aggressive, and war-like – all shadow aspects of Aries. It encourages us to focus instead on the aspects of Libra – love of peace, relationship. This also conjuncts the north node – our collective evolution. Very potent stuff here!
The Sabian symbol for 5 degrees Aries is:
‘A Triangle with Wings’ : Evolution of values in the sphere of inward self, but at a stage not yet substantiated. Eagerness for a spiritual goal.
