Time for you to shine—and shamelessly so—as 2018’s only full moon in Aries beams its stadium-bright lights on YOU. You have the stage, and any message you care to share will be well received today. While you’re at it, take time out to reflect on the last six months and honor all the things you’ve accomplished since the Aries NEW moon on April 15 of this year. You’ve evolved and gained awareness, and that is something to celebrate. An epiphany about your next big move could arrive today—tune in!
We’ve all heard that when one door closes, another opens, but not enough of us have heard Alexander Graham Bell’s valuable addition to this bromide. “We often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door,” he said, “that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” This year’s only full moon in forthright Aries is beaming into your twelfth house of completions, and it’s time to let go. Stop wasting energy on people or efforts that offer nothing in return. Have one last cry, scream or venting session if you must, then resolve to focus on the new and improved!
Wanted: BFFs who love ‘90s black-light roller-skating, trivia nights and costume parties as much as you do! (Or, uh, whatever floats your boat, Gemini!) Start the search for your soul friends today as a full moon in fiery Aries illuminates your community-minded eleventh house. Already found your high-vibe tribe? Gather your squad and let the champagne—or green juice—flow! Who cares if it’s a Monday? This day is all about celebrating the spirit of togetherness.
When you care about something, Cancer, you’re willing to put in the hustle. As today’s full moon in Aries activates your professional zone, you may have an epiphany about a career shift that you’d like to make. If you’re not jumping out of bed each morning (or at least waking up with a sense of wonder instead of dread), let that be your directive to start pursuing another path. Satisfied with your current status? Over the next two weeks, ask higher-ups for feedback, take on additional responsibilities or work harder to demonstrate how you add value. Then put in your request for the promotion you deserve.
Down the cup of courage today, Leo, and initiate that all-important conversation—the one you’ve been simultaneously eager and afraid to have. With the full moon in Aries beaming into your ultra-authentic ninth house, you can’t labor in delusion (or confusion) for a minute longer. The ninth house also rules international travel, so firm up itineraries and reserve your airline tickets to make an upcoming vacation a reality. A long-distance contact could reach out with an opportunity—or you might be the one to check in via WhatsApp. Trust your gut, Leo. When someone floats into your mind, there could be something important (and profitable!) to discuss.
Handing someone your spare key is a way of saying “I trust you. Let yourself in.” Are you ready to go there, Virgo? You could come face-to-face with a loyalty test like this as today’s full moon in Aries penetrates your eighth house of merged energies and deep bonding. This rapid-fire love bolt could bring a sudden exchange of shiny objects—those keys or, you know, some other metal, circular object. But if you’re still doubting the union’s longevity after having given it so many tries, summon the courage to spring free. Whether attached or single, delight in sexual chemistry that will bubble up with strangers but don’t let it blind you to the commitments you’ve already made.
No one believes in “You had me at hello” until they’ve been had at hello. It could happen to you today, Libra, as the annual full moon in Aries activates your seventh house of relationships. Under these buoyant beams, a passing glance can swiftly evolve into a passionate embrace; or you could meet the perfect project partner whose talents totally “complete” your own. Already attached? Download WeddingWire, scour Zillow for a place that’s perfectly sized for two, or do something that feels like an exhilarating next step.
Don’t even think about leaving the house in yoga pants today—no, not even your cutest pair. You’ll want to be fully loaded and Instagram-fierce as a full moon in Aries beams into your fashion-forward and fame-fueled fifth house. On a day like this, you could be stopped and praised (and even photographed) on the street or maybe get the chance to make an impromptu pitch over lunch to the office influencers. Dress for the part you want to play—and think along the lines of CEO or Queen of X (fill in blank)!
Home sweet home…uh, remember that place, Capricorn? Today’s full moon in Aries shines a floodlight in your domestic sector and calls you back to base. If you’ve been out six nights of seven every week (yes, even if it WAS for work), take the night off from that whirlwind and check in with your family and closest friends. They may be in need of a status update or the kind of moral support only you can give. They might also be fuming about your recent neglect. Suck it up and face the music. If you want to clear the air, you have to let people speak their piece.
Bring on the bon mots, Aquarius! Your wit is sharper than a ninja’s throwing star today, whether you’re peppering conversation with perfectly timed jokes or slaying with a meme and 140 characters. The full moon in Aries will bring kindred spirits out of the woodwork who appreciate your humor and sensibilities. A budding connection could finally take flight. Schedule drinks or a dinner thing—just take the initiative because your future BFF might not realize that you are even interested in being pals. This full moon will reboot your social calendar, and it’s all about exploring the local venues that have been popping up. Punch in those engagements so you don’t double-book!
Check your mindset, Are you focusing on prosperity or freaking out about how quickly you blow through your paycheck? Negative thinking won’t refill the coffers, but today’s full moon in Aries CAN bring a reality check about better ways to budget. You might have to tighten your belt for a couple weeks to get back in the black; but put some energy toward your income column, too. If you need to show and prove in order to lock in your bonus, make it your intention to slay in Q4. Elevating your income might be as easy as learning new software, taking a training your company offers or starting up a side hustle on Etsy.
Your body is your temple, Scorpio—and today’s full moon in Aries reminds you to treat it like a sacred space that houses your soul. Have your cake and comfort food AND your nights on the couch too. But make sure you’re running primarily on clean fuel. Fill up with fall superfoods like apples, sweet potatoes and pomegranates, and you’ll come alive. If you’re bored with your fitness routine, slip off the headphones and tell your trainer you’ll get back in touch in a month. A group class could be the perfect reboot. After all, squats are easier when you do ’em with a squad!
