Full Moon 24 September 2018 ~ Lone Wolf

The full moon September 24, 2018, falls at 2º Aries decan 1. The full moon September 2018 astrology shows that the moon has no special dignity in this decan. However, the gutsy stars found here ensure that this full moon will be incredibly productive all the same. This period is great for the lone entrepreneur who works tactically. Here the Moon does not lean on others emotionally and is not afraid of working solo. Those touched by this Aries full Moon are also not molded by what is popular or what loved ones expect of them. It is a time of inventions, some that are controversial, but others fantastically unique due to not being influenced by the mainstream.

Austin Coppock says Moon in Aries decan 1 develops emotional self-reliance but has “a difficult time creating and maintaining emotional relationships with others, especially those relations which place the natives in a position of vulnerability.” [1] This may be the reason for success here since we can become married to our work. We are so emotionally connected with our mission that we make passionate fighters for our cause whatever it may be. This is a time for activists and those who are willing to be heroes for their family or greater tribe. In the wider world, there will be those who act quite ruthlessly in order to preserve the integrity and independence of their homeland.

Full Moon September 24 2018 Fixed Star ~ Deneb Kaitos

Deneb Kaitos with the moon ~ “Pioneer, reckless, headstrong, violent temper, many quarrels.”

Deneb Kaitos is a 2nd magnitude major star found in the tail of Cetus the sea-monster. Robson says “It causes self-destruction by brute force, sickness, disgrace, misfortune and compulsory change.” While Elsbeth Ebertin says “Inhibitions and restraints in every way, psychologically and physically.” [3] Aries rules the head, so mental disturbance and hot-headedness go with the territory. Deneb Kaitos is probably the very star that gives the Rams their selfish and quite frankly, spoilt-brat reputation… This star situated in the tail can make them lash out without thinking at times. They can deeply wound (lacerate.) without meaning to. Interestingly the constellation of Lacerta the lizard makes up quite a large section of this decan.

Full Moon September 2018~ Tarot Card

Full Moon September 2019The tarot card associated with this decan is the two of wands. Karmically this card is about leaving the old for the new, deciding between staying with what you know and leaving for something brand new:

 “ On the outside, it may appear you have it all and are very successful but changes have been occurring on the inside for some time. You may have a new plan of action or a burning desire to do something else. You may feel that your fires have been burning low and that you are in dire need of a new lease of life, change of scenery or change of faces.” ~ Teachmetarot.

The meaning is appropriate in the sense that Aries decan 1 is indeed the start of a brand new cycle and the return of the sun.

Full Moon September 2018

The full moon September 2018 is part of yet another complex aspect pattern. This one is quite something else. You will notice if you look at it sideways it looks like a diamond inside a box Some of you may recognize it is part of a mystic rectangle joined to the nodes by two sextiles. This all means that the moon is aspected quite heavily. So we get:

Moon sextile Mars (Conjunct South Node) is as you would expect an extremely passionate aspect, but it really does need to express this energy physically or sexually otherwise anger-management can become a big problem. Mood can change very quickly, but the frantic tide can be very creative. Moon sextile Mars will be passionate about artistic products and be very driven to project them into the world. Because this aspect is also connected to the south node it could also purge out old grievances with karmic ties. It might be a good idea to channel the resentment into a piece of art even if it does look rather gory!

Moon sextile Black Moon Lilith brings an abundance of charm, persuasion and sorcery. This is witchcraft of the highest calibre, but with it, comes the ability to mesmerize and manipulate in the most underhand and unscrupulous fashion if need be.  Moon sextile Lilith has a Peter pan, youthful feel. This cheeky aspect will enable the subjects to charm their way out of a very deep rabbit hole if need be. This is the ‘lovable-rogue’ with less of the spikiness you sometimes find with Lilith.

Moon opposite Mercury can manifest as a magic wand once it has come to peace with themselves and tamed the mind to work with its intuition. At this time the collective is highly strung so they need to put their energies into something physical or creative through which they can channel their restlessness.

Moon square Saturn is an aspect that grows up quickly, therefore deep inside Saturn’s armour is a very soft-centered, needy child. This archetype is loathed to show this very fragile side of their character, so most of the time they appear very strong, capable and most of all independent. At this time those touched by this full moon might feel their suppressed needs will come out as incapacitating illness or depression, that way they get the care they feel they don’t deserve to ask for.

 The “Animated” Aspect Pattern

Full moon September 2018

The aspect patterns according to the Huber school are comprised of a Trapeze with a Sheild stuck on top of it. But the Moon itself is part of a T-square with Saturn so I think the most important Huber pattern to look at will be the two ‘Animated’ patterns that are held together by a sextile at the base making it look like that diamond I mentioned earlier.

Animated Figure“Hidden in this term is the profession of the animator. In the cartoons he produces, he shows all the movements of a character precisely in frames; which requires imagination, patience and a lot of hard work…. such a figure can rapidly switch from approval to disapproval. The motivations are a thirst for action and utilitarian thinking with energy and skill, or even “no gain without pain”. There is a constructive orientation towards adapting and modifying the status quo…New things are constantly learned from the oscillation between achievement and pleasure.” [2]



Full Moon September 2018To make the most of all this independent and risk-taking energy at this full moon September 2018 make the gods work for you by immersing yourself in Aries decan 1 energy. If your ascendant, Sun or Moon are in the cardinal signs decan 1 you might be flipping between being a daredevil or feeling great fear. To avoid going from one extreme to the other, try focused meditation or yoga with the following:

Useful healing materials and props: The 2 of wands to gaze at, mustard to eat, Tigerlily to adorn your table, Ruby crystal to hold, music in the key of D to listen to, cedarwood, clove and black pepper essential oils in a bath.

Ruby Meaning: “It encourages leadership and increased concentration, with sharpness of intellect. This beautiful red stone allows you to see your own strength and your creative potential from a heart-based perspective. One of this stone’s alchemical properties is to impart a sense of bliss, as well as encouraging a desire for life.”~ healingcrystalsforyou. 

Full Moon September 2018 ~ Summary

In the full moon September 2018 the rapid switching from approval to disapproval could be seen in the two t-squares. One to Saturn and the other to Uranus. There is extreme risk-taking on the one hand and extreme fear and caution on the other. An example of how this might manifest at this full moon is that one may be asked to something very daring, something new that takes a lot of courage which is so very Aries also. They could make a huge promise but then get out of it by becoming ill. On the positive side if all of this aspect pattern is utilized the challenging aspects can be offset by the harmonious ones. The is a huge amount of karmic adjustment going on here. Maybe we can think of this as being like tuning a piano, it is only when all the keys are put through their paces can we see just how much out of tune the piano really is.

One of the important aspects of the last couple of years has been Saturn trine Uranus and this really forms the bridge between the two animated figures. This is a bridge between the old and the new. These planets are also the ancient and modern rulers of Aquarius a sign of paradoxes as it is both innovative and futuristic while being a fixed sign and quite fearful of change. They are also both loner planets which takes us back to the lone wolf theme of the decan as a whole. Sometimes, when things just get too complicated to fathom it is just best to go into hermit mode or throw yourself into work. An Aries moon goes it alone.

  1. Someone much of a lone wolf showed up this night, a day before the full moon, as mercury trined mars, to give news of an opportunity to help with something new. I had already made plans to pursue something I thought new. So I have changed my plans for something new or is it really something old? Literally! To seek opportunity in the heart of Silicon Valley is nothing new since I have done that before, (80s-90s). Now offered to help restore wild lands under state contract at the very site work had begun in 1985 doesn’t seem all that new. Incidentally, I was there for that too.
    So what is new?

    Because my Capricorn moon is on the nadir and my Aquarian Saturn is in the 4th house as well, (natal Saturn with the moons’ south node), and because that fateful moons’ south node is with mars still close to that Saturn of mine, (also that Saturn’s’ transit is approaching my natal moon), I decided to give the land management project a priority. It seems appropriate. It seems rehabilitating this previously occupied land, for creating new park land, is more of a break from the old than anything Santa Clara might offer. But then the moon is not yet full!

    It just seems that with the squares present, a literal destruction of the old is more appropriate then just moving in a new direction. Perhaps everything seems old because I am old. I am of course on high alert for potential personal injuries.

  2. My natal sun, jupiter & pluto & progressed sun are semi – sextile to each end of the sun /full moon opposition. I drew the chart pattern out and the two of wands appeared! Magic ?

  3. Interesting article, thank you. With the Saturn Uranus Trine over the last couple of years – would this cover someone from you past coming back and why? He has Mars in Aquarius and I have Venus.

    1. Ha ha! There has been a LOT of that going on this year. I have seen that in my friends too. The return of the ex. Funnily enough, mine this year had the same surname as you which made me laugh 🙂 For you two it’s probably more to do with Mars retrograde in Aquarius though, but Saturn trine Uranus certainly adds to the nostalgia.
