Astro-Update: The Libra / Aries Full Moon. Exact at 12:52 pm Tuesday September 25 AEST

This is a Saturnian Full Moon with both the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries being squared by old father time Saturn from his home sign of Capricorn. This suggests delays, blockage and frustration for sociable Libra and hot-to-trot Aries. Imagine a wise elder counseling two fun loving energetic teenagers to make haste slowly because “it’s a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll.” Wounded healer Chiron also features strongly in the mix, conjoining the Moon and opposing the Sun. The way forward is the way in is the way through. No spiritual bypassing allowed. Unhealed family wounds may rear their all-too-familiar ugly head, but kissing the metaphorical ugly frog may result in healing breakthroughs via the flowing trine alignment from Saturn to radical change agent Uranus in Taurus. The latter’s touch of revelatory earth magic may also produce rapid healing of ancient wounds. And Mars in Aquarius flowing with the Sun and Moon will boost energy, drive and motivation to overcome any and all obstacles.
