Sometimes guidance from both above and within meet us softly, whispering in the winds as it flows through us. Other times, it’s as if we have stepped into flames, unable to look away, unable to move away. Clear as day, filled with urgency.
Aries is fire. Fire is passion, demanding, powerful.
Fire cannot be missed – at least, not the kind of fire Aries burns with. Aries fire is felt in our bodies, our minds. It demands that we move, burning away what cannot survive here. Demanding that we let our flames roam free – only to realise that they hold an intelligence, a knowing, an inbuilt sense of purpose, a clarity of direction. Their freedom is simply, wholly, powerfully, the direction that is for them.
The guidance of Aries fire demands that we move in the direction that is ours to walk.
It’s not concerned with niceties, with complications, with narratives – with anything else, really. It is the warrior on a mission, tunnel visioned and all in. It shows us our direction and says ‘go – you must go, it is the only way’. It manifests as impatience and restlessness in our minds and bodies until we do so. It builds inside of us getting louder and louder until it’s all that can be heard. It burns away at us until we bow our heads to it – until we bow our heads to our destiny, to ourselves.
Aries shows us our path isn’t a desire, it’s a need. And that need cannot be ignored under this full Moon.
Full Moons are closures. Culminations that lead us to shed. As the Moon reaches her fullness it is clear what can no longer continue with her, and so she begins dropping layers, letting go of what is expired.
The Moon teaches us to surrender to our seasons, our cycles, our inner knowing and movement. As she sheds there is no fear of becoming empty. Empty is where she can begin again – it is the only way she can begin again. And she must begin again – just as Aries.
This full Moon offers us the courage to release what is no longer ours to carry. Dropping layers that cannot come with us as we say yes to the direction that is ours to walk. The North Node of destiny and evolution shines bright in this same fiery sign, highlighting our individual paths of purpose, and as the Moon burns bright with the fires of Aries it is tuned into this purpose, tuned into our purpose, and showing us clearly what must be burned away in service to it.
Who do you need to become so that you may walk your path? And what must be released for you to become this expression of you?
Aries Full Moon Ritual: Somatic Movement Workshop
Fire demands we move, the Moon demands we release. And this workshop supports us in doing just that – releasing through the body, the emotions, and the nervous system through supportive and expressive movement.
Created for you to journey through in your own time and space, this workshop meets you where you are and can be completed as many times as you so desire. Guided by Somatic Embodiment Coach and Sacred Movement Instructor, Alana Williamson, this container will hold you in safety as you wholly and completely transform yourself.
Access this workshop via our Flow with the Moon Membership.
