Why are we always talking about the Moon? Of all the planets, why is it the Moon speaks to us most importantly? While every planet is important and makes up who you are and the energy around you, the Moon is the ultimate feminine energy. She is the “bringer of moods” and the “puller of tides.” Her house and placement in your chart reveal how your intuition work — and we all know female intuition is the most powerful force out there.
What does it mean when Moon is in Aries? According to Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide, the Moon in Aries is bold, impulsive and energetic. It’s a period when we feel feisty and maybe a little argumentative. Since Aries is the first sign of the zodiac it’s a natural starting point for all kinds of projects and a wonderful time to channel all that “me first” energy to initiate change and new beginnings.
Anyone born under the sign of Aries knows the impulsive nature of their sign. Known for their bravery, directness and impetuousness, Aries are a force to be reckoned with. Aries are considered very good at initiating projects and “getting stuff done.” Now is the time to harness the energy of the bold Aries and use this time to make the changes in your life you so desire. Now is the time to be bold.
For that extra push, here’s some inspirational words from women who know how to get sh*t done. Use them and their words to assist you during Saturday’s full moon.
“I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people’s lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.

“Do the things that interest you and do them with all your heart. Don’t be concerned about whether people are watching you or criticizing you. The chances are that they aren’t paying any attention to you. It’s your attention to yourself that is so stultifying. But you have to disregard yourself as completely as possible. If you fail the first time then you’ll just have to try harder the second time. After all, there’s no real reason why you should fail. Just stop thinking about yourself.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt
