On Oct. 1st, at 5:05pm EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 9 degrees of Aries — the Moon’s entry into Aries on Sept. 30th in the late evening, starts the build up towards this Full Moon. The Moon in pioneering, fast-paced Aries makes an opposition to the Sun in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra.
Generally, a Full Moon brings our attention to our “emotional body”, increasing our awareness of what has been suppressed or ignored.

What if this feeling was an invitation for self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-nurturing? How might engaging with myself in that fashion bring me closer to myself? How might being accepting of myself despite (or even including) my self-doubt make me a more compassionate collaborator and ally?
