In general, Full moons are times of release. As you think on where you want to be in life, acknowledge what or who may be giving you the most resistance. One key to releasing anything is to be sure that you mean it. If you aren’t ready just yet, that’s okay. There’s always the next full moon. Once you write a list of what you’d like to release, burn it and flush the ashes. Feel the separation as the smoke rises up and away from you. Embrace your new found freedom.
This reading is for the Aries Full Moon on October 5, 2017. The decks used for it are the Gateway to the Divine Tarot by Ciro Marchetti and the Journey of Love deck by Alana Fairchild.
Are you noticing a pattern in your romantic life and you’re pretty sick and tired of it? Well, get out of your rut then. This stuck feeling should be making you take a good look at what choices you are making to put yourself back in the same situations. If you want a change, be the change. There is something new that can be born in you if you simply let it. And this can grow, again, if you let it. You don’t need to continually look at things so spiritually or try to make sense of them as much as you need to look at the grand scheme. Step back and look at it all: the patterns, the choices, the things you can’t change and those you can. Take everything in and decide where you want to be, then go. BE there. Is it that easy? To just teleport to the beach with a margarita in your hand, the love(s) of your life by your side and the money to make it happen? No, but the first step is deciding that you can grow toward the life you want. If people aren’t fitting into that, release them. Release situations. Release what doesn’t match and give yourself permission to move on from old patterns that are holding you back from the joy you seek and deserve.
Are y’all tired of the same fights and arguments? It’s time to find some concrete solutions and not just bandages that fall off eventually. Are you being led solely by your emotions? Are you comparing who’s doing more and who isn’t doing enough? Why? Seeking balance is a constant adjustment of responsibility, communication, and effort. If you’re ready to get off the merry-go-round, then hop off. Whether this means finally confronting a recurring problem or taking a break from your partner because you constantly refuse to see eye to eye, DO it. Relationships go through cycles just like anything else. Time is not linear. Just as Earth goes around the moon and seasons come and go, so do the pressures, joys, highs, and lows of relationships. If it’s worth it to all parties involved, then work for what you want so that you uproot bad habits that land you back in a familiar horrible territory.
So What Now?
While these are shorter than usual, there is still a lot packed in there if you’re honest with yourselves. So, get those lists out. Write down the bad habits, the past hurts that fuel your current choices, the old patterns that you’re ready to let go of. Clear your plate so that you have room for better decisions and the joy that they will bring. This is a harvest moon, so make room to rake in exactly what you’ve been working toward. The past few months should have clarified some things for you as far as your wants and desires, so make sure there’s room to receive them and that old, dead, rotten thoughts and practices aren’t in the way of what you truly want and deserve.
