This full moon is exact on Wednesday, October 20th at 10:57am ET. The moon is in Aries opposite the Libra sun, both at 27 degrees.
The cosmic mirror of this full moon is reflecting back to us our part in our lessons. It’s about being willing to acknowledge our karmic patterns that play out in relationships, or that we attribute to relationships, so that we can heal them.
It’s tempting to look at our pain or struggles and focus on something outside of ourselves. This is especially true with relationships. She lied. He cheated. They wouldn’t recognize my value, etc.
Yes! People are 100% responsible for their actions. This isn’t about excusing anyone or blaming victims.
I’m talking about owning your part in every encounter and relationship. That includes your choices, your fears, your insecurities, your needs, your gifts … everything you bring to relationships, including your expectations, fantasies, hopes, dreams, and agendas.
This full moon is an invitation to look at relationships in your life and instead of focusing on what they did or didn’t do, look at you. Look at what feelings, fears, and beliefs come up in you.
Instead of thinking about how you wish they would change, be open to owning what scares you, what hurts you, what beliefs keep you from seeing how lovable you are.
Seeing your own patterns is a huge first step in changing them. If you’re not ready to change, that’s okay. It’s okay to recognize something and not be ready to take action. The recognition is important. Too often we ignore facing truth because we aren’t ready to then take action. Be gentle with yourself and know that just being willing to see things differently is brave and valuable.
If you are ready to make a shift, the wind is at your back. You’ve got this.
Have a beautiful full moon.
