What else should I know about the Hunter’s Moon?
Full moons take place at the culmination of every lunar cycle. They appear when the moon’s light and energy are at their most potent. Full moons bring impact and information to light within three to four days before or after but are often most intense on the exact day they reach fullness. Full moons echo the patterns and situations initiated at the most recent new moon— but also the new moon in the same zodiac sign six months prior. Reflect back on what occurred near April 1, 2022, as it will directly reflect the situations, conversations and themes that pop up now.
The Hunter’s Moon was very important for Native American tribes and colonial farmers because it signaled the period in the year when it was crucial to gather meat to prepare for the winter months. Because the harvests were usually reaped in late September or early October, now it was much easier to see deer, fox and other animal game. This year, the Hunter’s Moon is also a full moon in Aries. The energy of this Fire sign will bring momentum, enthusiasm and passion to our lives. We may feel invigorated and inspired to launch in new directions or carve out the future. Aries is the first zodiac sign on the wheel, encouraging us to be courageous and take chances. Aries energy is fiery, confident and adventurous and focuses us on our innermost desires. Ruled by Mars, Aries is dominant, assertive and a leader — encouraging us to embrace what makes us unique and different.
When analyzing the cosmic energy of this full moon, we can see many significant planetary aspects that will further color the vibration of the lunation. The full moon stands opposite Venus, which will dramatically affect our need for companionship, emotional attachment and intimate relationships. If our unions are not aligned, there could be some rocky disagreements about these needs not being met or increased loneliness. However, the full moon harmonizes sweetly with Saturn, which can help bring stability and security to our emotions and personal lives. Mars, the ruler of this lunation, will also be highly active at this time. First, he will clash violently with Neptune, bringing weakness, illness, confusion or challenges to us. One moment we may feel fired up and the next on the bottom of the rung. Mars also conflicts with Mercury, which can bring short tempers, arguments and impulsiveness. Luckily, Mars also dances with Saturn, too, which can bring us the strength, patience and perseverance we need if we’re willing to ground ourselves and focus. This full moon’s ultimate message is that we can achieve self-actualization and step into our power — otherwise if we don’t, we may just be charging into battle looking for trouble. Use the energy wisely.
