Full Moon in Aries: The 'I' of the Hurricane

Today we have the Full Moon in Aries, cardinal fire sign of the Ram. Aries takes initiative, doesn’t hold back, faces everything with an open heart and courage. Dives in, trusts the truth, asserts the self. At this time of the Full Moon, we are meant to stand tall in our selves, solar plexus shining bright, taking refuge in the ‘I' of the storm.

Aries’ spiritual statement is “I Am.” During this time of global stress – natural disasters and human catastrophe – it can be easy to get highly disturbed, agitated, and despairing. It’s easier to lose our footing, to get swept away ourselves into a sea of negativity and darkness. During chaotic cycles, it’s imperative to remember the Self, the I Am of our true nature. Sat Chit Ananda ~ being (truth), consciousness, peace (bliss). 

There is a space and a place inside each of us that is 100% love, totally connected, pure presence. This is the ‘I’ in the hurricane. This is Aries’ I Am. I am here. I exist. I am awareness. Even while the world goes to hell in a hand basket around us, we can keep a cool head. 

Aries is ruled by the head, and it is particularly important for Rams and those with strong Ram influences in their charts, to protect their heads from the sun, from injury, from a potentially harmful rush of blood to the head. When Aries keeps their head, the Ram becomes a fantastic force of nature: clear, calculated, confident. Unstoppable. Let us all practice this today.

Drop into your true nature. Aries is ruled by Mars, the warrior planet, and is the master martial artist. Stay in the hara, the svadisthana or second chakra. You may feel this “seat of the soul” most prominently in the sacral area, or in the pelvic bowl region.  This is your center, your place of rest. I often advise my clients and students to hang out here, in your ‘inner hammock.’ 

From this place, all action arises from the Self, the ground of being. It is particularly important to find this seat of resting consciousness in times of strife. From this place, we make calm, cool, pointed moves. 

That's grounded and centered Aries.
Perfect action, right on time.
“If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too…”
~ Rudyard Kipling
