Full Moon in the Houses
The Full Moon
Look to the position of the transiting Full Moon by house in any given month for areas of your life that will be illuminated abruptly.
While the New Moon is introspective, the Full Moon is public. It fairly bursts forth with energy. The emotional proclamations made now appear new and unrefined, simply because they are expressed as a burst of energy that has not yet been rationalized. Yes, they can be “loony” and sometimes “infantile”, but the surge of emotional energy can spur us into healthy action nevertheless. We need to get something out of our systems. We are in need of validation in the areas stimulated by the Full Moon.
Even though the emotional energy associated with the Full Moon seems new because it is so raw, it’s only the expression of it that is new. The truth is, the desire for change has been sitting with us for a while now, but we haven’t yet had the energy or impetus to do anything about it. That is the beauty of the Full Moon! Still, we need to be aware that there is a tendency to project our own state of restlessness or frustrations onto others. We are especially emotional now, and need to avoid blaming outside circumstances or other people for our own frustrations.
The Full Moon transiting the houses of the natal chart
Full Moon in the First House
“Hey, what about me?” is the feeling of a Full Moon in the first house. You’re looking for a bit of attention right now as you feel that life has been too “other-oriented” recently. Try to avoid infantile outbursts. Instead, work on your self-assertiveness. You do count, and there are ways to assert your own needs without stepping on others’ toes. Finding a balance between autonomy and dependence is what this Full Moon is about for you. Your emotions are on your sleeve right now. It is a good time to put your needs first, but doing so with respect for others will take you further. Whether you can succeed as a leader is “tested” right now.
Full Moon in the Second House
Intimacy, issues of power and control, or joint finances may have been a focus for the last two weeks. Now it’s time to recognize what makes you comfortable. This Full Moon is about balancing the give and take of intimacy–the giving and receiving of pleasure. Sharing issues come into focus, as do issues of power–what’s yours and what’s mine. Your comfort zones matter, and now is the time to take care of your own needs without eclipsing the needs of others.
Full Moon in the Third House
The last two weeks have found you somewhat restless and in need of more from life than the mundane. Now the mundane is catching up with you. Errands need to be run, people are talking your ear off, you need to do some paperwork and answer calls. An important document could arrive, or a sudden need to run an important errand or to take a short trip could be part of the picture. You are pushed to find a balance now. Do what needs to be done so that you can free yourself up for more adventurous and fulfilling activities.
Full Moon in the Fourth House
The last two weeks have found you working hard towards your career goals and other public matters. The demands of your personal life are now paramount. Striking a balance between energy spent on work and energy spent on domestic matters is essential now. Balanced attention to your public and personal lives is what you need to focus on. It’s time to prioritize. Otherwise, you run the risk of over-extending yourself. A home, family, or property matter could grab your complete attention at this time.
Full Moon in the Fifth House
You want to have fun, and the demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. It can be hard to find time for everything you want to do, but without creative self-expression (be it romantic or playful), you simply won’t feel complete. It’s time to do something self-expressive, fun, and creative. You may be required to complete a creative project at this time. You could feel an overwhelming need to pour your heart out to a lover, or a romantic affair reaches some sort of epiphany. There could be a whirlwind of activity surrounding your child or children.
Full Moon in the Sixth House
You look in the mirror and say, “That’s it! I’m starting that exercise program”. You crush out a cigarette with disgust and decide to quit smoking. You throw up your arms and say that you can’t take how your boss has been treating you. These are just some examples of a Full Moon transiting your sixth house. If it activates other personal planets, or if it’s an eclipse, the more intense or dramatic your proclamations will be. Of course, you don’t necessarily need to burst forth with emotional declarations, especially if you plan in advance. Avoid blaming others for your own state of discontent if that’s how you are feeling right now. You can use this surge of emotional energy to make positive changes to your routines. Do something to improve your work conditions if they are annoying you–even if it’s a small act of kindness with a co-worker or bringing in something to brighten up your desk or office. Get going on your exercise or nutrition program that you’ve been toying with in your mind. This may also be a time when a work project comes to fruition or completion.
Full Moon in the Seventh House
The New Moon was all about you. Now it’s time to strike a balance with an “other”. The seventh house represents an important one-to-one relationship–a marriage partner, significant other, business partner, or an adversary. It’s time to strike a balance between your own needs and those of another. It’s time to compromise and negotiate. Partnership “tests” are possible now, but so is a chance to truly connect to a special someone in your life.
Full Moon in the Eighth House
This Full Moon is all about give and take. What makes you feel comfortable and secure needs to be balanced with attention to other people’s needs and comfort levels. It’s a good time to settle some of your debts, financial or otherwise. You may be in a position wherein you are forced to make a financial settlement or large outlay of cash; or, you may find that you are leaned upon for support, financial or otherwise.
Full Moon in the Ninth House
Your attention to the logical world of reason has been a focus in the last two weeks. Now you feel a crisis of lack. Your personal beliefs may be tested now. Your impulses and faith matter, and all of the attention you’ve been giving to mundane affairs has you wondering when you’re going to have some fun. You want to take a leap of faith now. Your adventurous side pushes up and out, demanding attention.
Full Moon in the Tenth House
You are suddenly in the limelight–everyone notices you now. It’s time to put your best foot forward, but be sure to do so with grace and consideration for others, or you may just make a display that you regret later. Perhaps you’ve been hiding yourself away, taking it easy. Now you need a little attention, and career matters come to a head. You’re called to perform, perhaps on a moment’s notice, and it’s best to keep your cool and do whatever you can to show your competence. A sudden job opportunity, or some form of assistance with regards to career, home, or property matters, could be part of the picture. This can also produce an event that requires you to take charge and show your responsible side.
Full Moon in the Eleventh House
You’ve been focusing on what brings you pleasureyour hobbies, romantic activities, and so forth. Now you realize that the role you play in others’ lives (as a spouse, parent, friend) is an important element in your overall happiness. You’re looking for validation from friends and group activities now. You may be called upon to perform a humanitarian gesture. For example, a friend may experience a little crisis and asks for your help. You may suddenly find yourself around many people, perhaps after a period of relative solitude or private time.
Full Moon in the Twelfth House
Circumstances are such that you have an overwhelming need to be alone. You’ve been busy with all sorts of everyday activities, deeply involved in your work and routines. It’s time to balance your life with some down timeotherwise, you simply don’t feel whole. Issues come to light that originate from deep within. It’s an excellent time to get in touch with what’s been brewing beneath the surface. A secret or private matter may be revealed, a health matter could come to light, or a work project can reach culmination.
