The Full Moon in Aries on October 13th is full indeed, with themes of power, self-inquiry, healing and rebirth. The Full Moon is at 20 degrees of Aries, square Pluto - exact, at 20 degrees of Capricorn. Immediately we know that the archetype of Aries and the power of the self is under Pluto's microscope in the depths of the Underworld, with no place to hide. All that we are, the power we hold and how we use it; or not, is being challenged by the Lord of Death and Rebirth. Pluto in Capricorn is about status and power as well. It asks us to see how we use our power to manifest, and where our desire to manifest is sourcing from. Are we creating from a lust for power, control and domination, or are we creating as an expression of our divine power to uplift the whole while honoring our creative sovereignty?

The Full Moon falling on the 13th day of October, activates the archetype of Scorpio, Key 13, and "Death & Rebirth" even deeper. This is the power of regeneration; the power to choose again, and choose wisely, to change the form all together. Death of form is a gift because it gives us the opportunity to change what has bound us and limited our growth. Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, and Saturn are doing their alchemy in Capricorn, moving into an even deeper discussion as we get closer to the January 2020, exact conjunction of the two bodies of archetypal force.

We also have the Sun in Libra, squared by Pluto. The Sun is our identity and our ego. It is the core of our truth. Pluto will challenge our light to shine brighter if we can withstand the initiation. All true growth is initiated by movement. Pluto is exerting the unrelenting force of a hidden desire. Mars, the ruler of Aries, is in Libra at 6 degrees, opposite Chiron, at 2 degrees Aries. All wounds are on the table. This cannot be denied. If ever there was a time to look at the hidden wounds of the self and the warrior; it is now. To add emotional rebirth to the Full Moon event, Venus in deep, dark Scorpio, is opposite Uranus in Taurus. This Full Moon is sure to be felt, and to be felt deep in the hidden recesses of the heart and mind. There is movement and change abound.

The message: we are magicians; we are alchemists; we are journeying through a most transformational period of our soul's development. It can be dark and deep at times; but for a good reason. It's time to discover what is hidden so that it can assist what we see in our surroundings. No more hiding, no more shrinking from our creative power. If it is blocked or lost in the chaos; it's time to reclaim it and own it. Magic is all around us - the frequency of change and the dark feminine gift of rebirth.
