Ordinarily, the full moon rises in the sign opposite the new one. Pisces energy is being given a rest in the second Virgo lunar cycle so the moon can rise in Aries in Bharani. Aries is vigilant about its goals, never backing down. This is helpful for Virgo’s need for mastery and improvement.
Bharani, ruled by Venus, maintains balance between extreme opposing energies, like dark and light or good and bad. This is fitting given that Aries is on the axis with Libra. The current lunar cycle began with analytical and creative energy of Virgo in Chitra, which is giving us guidance to carefully plan projects. The full moon will push us to move through the difficulties to complete projects, to make improvements, or sever ties with people.
Mars retrograde transited from Aries to Pisces on 4 October giving us a second round of reflecting upon being determined and peaceful. Focused, tranquil. Think peaceful protests.
The sun and Mercury’s retrograde in Libra both aspect Aries after Mars leaves its own sign. This may incite the collective to communicate issues related to social reform and welfare.
Venus is transiting Virgo, where it is uncomfortable. This may trigger issues with food, money, and self worth.
On a personal level, be aware of what or who triggers anger. Become more aware of who or what is draining your energy. Channeling thoughts and emotions into writing, speaking, or hobbies using the hands may be healthy ways of working with this odd energy.
The energy of this full moon will be felt between 28 October through 3 November.
