Aries Full Moon Goals: A few days late

So the moon is (or actually has) entered it’s latest full moon stage, and has moved through the Aries constellation. I’m going to be a day (or two, maybe three) late in posting, but that seems to be on par the past couple of weeks in my posts. By the time I post this, October will be halfway over, and that means there is only two and half months left in 2019. Somehow, time speeds by when one wants it to go slow, and crawls when we want it to speed past. I’ve realized that one thing I need to focus on during these last few weeks of 2019 and going into 2020—time management, and productivity.

So Aries is actually the start of the Zodiac calendar—which means astrologically speaking—it’s starting a new year, so goals can be reassessed, redesigned, tossed, and new ones made if one wants to.

So during the full moon, there are a series of questions one can ask themselves regarding the full moon in different constellations. So in regards to the full moon in Aries, one can ask themselves the following questions:

Have I been hotheaded, selfish, or argumentative this month?

Have I been going to fast or been impulsive this month?

Have I been brash, blunt, or too competitive?

Have I ignored other people’s finer sensibilities?

Have I had enough fun?

So if I were to number the previous questions 1-5, I think my answers would be as following:

  1. I don’t think that I’ve been hotheaded, selfish, or argumentative this month as all—though I’m sure that there are some people who will disagree with me on the selfish part (since I turned in my letter of resignation for my current position [and who knows when it will be filled]). I’m actually trying to put myself first at times (especially in terms of my mental health). I usually try to avoid being argumentative at work (it doesn’t seem to do any good, other than make a situation worse).
  2. No I haven’t been going to fast or being impulsive this month either—if nothing else, my problem is that I’m usually going in the opposite mode—to slow and being overly cautious. I’ve realized that I’ve actually worked myself into a stage/period of “motion paralysis”, and this is something that I’m actually going to be working on moving/getting out of over the next few months (especially once my reboot break starts).
  3. Again, no I don’t think I’ve been brash, blunt, or too competitive—I’m more likely to stand back and let others be in the spotlight. I’m quite content to be in the background doing things.
  4. I don’t think that I’ve been ignoring other people’s finer sensibilities.
  5. No, I probably haven’t been having enough fun lately. This is something else that I’m going to be trying to correct over the next few months. I know that it shouldn’t be trying to find a “balance” between work and home—but trying to enjoy and find something “fun” in what I do between the hours of eight and five (or nine and six—or whatever the work hours will be). Plus, once I’m better at time management—spend some time in the evenings working on crafts, photography, and/or writing.

So I can safely say—that I’m quite boring, dull, and more than willing to be a wallflower. Traits, that won’t be helpful in terms of networking, and job searching—so there are things that I will need to work on over the next few months. But before one can start making their full moon goals, one should also look to see which house the full moon is moving through—and what they may need to take into account there.

So Aries is moving through my sixth house—or my daily work and health zone. So this is one nice thing about the moon—it moves through the houses several times each year—but there are two times (new & full) that we can sit and reflect on how we’ve done with each house. This is the house, where we can sit and reflect on who we are (both business/work wise and health/fitness wise) and decide to work on what we don’t like.

I find it amusing that the sixth house has popped up approximately a month before I’ll be leaving my job, and a little over a week before I do a free health assessment. I know that there are numerous things that I need to focus on in both areas of life (work/business and health/fitness)—that I’m going to go slow, and the goals may carry over into goals for both November and my reboot break/transition plan goals.

Therefore my goals for the Aries full moon will include:

            Working on my reboot break/transition plan. This may include working through some of the personal development courses or starting to read some of the personal development books (particularly the ones that have numerous journal prompts).

            Trying to back into meditating nightly—this has been an on and off endeavor the past couple of weeks. I know that when I manage to do it for at least a couple of minutes—I do sleep a little better at night.

            Not touching my phone after I turn off the lights and start reading (I have the light dimmed on the e-reader, but haven’t figured out how to dim the light on the phone). Try to be meditating by no later than nine, and reading no later than twenty after nine.

            Continue trying to plan out the next couple of months, and look into different programs that allow you to block certain apps/web pages to help increase my productivity and work on my time management skills.

And always remember: Progress over Perfection.

Aries Full Moon Goals

Well next week is October already. Somehow the month of September has sped past, and we’re now entering the last quarter of 2018. I had thought that I would possibly have gotten more accomplished this year, and that I would have an industry position—well that hasn’t happened yet. So we’re entering the full moon cycle, and now the moon has moved into Aries—which is always a lovely fire sign.

So let’s look at the top 5 questions from “Moonology: working with the magic of lunar cycles” by Yasmin Boland.

Have I been hotheaded, selfish, or argumentative this month?

Have I been going too fast or been impulsive this month?

Have I been brash, blunt, or too competitive?

Have I ignored other people’s finer sensibilities?

Have I had enough fun?

So if I number the above questions again 1-5, I think my current answers would be as follows:

  • I actually think that I need to be a little more selfish or argumentative in the coming weeks (mainly for the sake of my mental health). I usually don’t argue with people at work (I don’t like conflict), and I try to compromise as much as possible probably in all aspects of life. I need to start putting myself first in some cases and decide that if I’m going to possibly take time off—it may be time without pay (as I’ve been told that unless I’m having an mental issue I can’t take sick leave for it).
  • No I haven’t been impulsive about things or going too fast. Probably there are a lot of people that are saying that I’m actually being way to cautious and going slower than others in terms of trying to work on my transition into industry from academia.
  • Again, I don’t think I’ve been brash or blunt this month. The same can be said about being competitive—I haven’t been.
  • What finer sensibilities? Right now I have no social life and I don’t think that I’m ignoring people’s sensibilities.
  • No I haven’t had enough fun lately. I’ve been too stressed about the animals that have declining health, trying to find another job, and the world in general.

So the moon is also passing through my 6th house or the daily work and health zone. So, this will be the second time that this house has come around this year (remember the moon passes through each house during all phases—but I’m currently only looking at the new and full moons (and not the quarters). So this is the time that we focus on releasing any issues about habits that we want to break. This is also the time that we may face a tug of war between dealing with everyday things and wanting to find time to ourselves.

This is also the time to look at what you do every Monday to Friday from nine to five—to sum up: your job. It isn’t suggested that you up and quit (unless you can afford too), but to start thinking of what you do enjoy doing and seeing if there is a way to turn that into your nine to five job, or figure out how to transition into a different job. I have decided that it is time to transition out of academia and in industry for several reasons (but that is another blog post)……

So my goals for this full moon period are:

  • Start a workout routine (either a second round of LIIFT4 or InsanityMax30).
  • Work on my transition plan (have the list of job titles ranked, and start looking into the top six a little more in detail [have at least one blog post on the top six as to why I wouldn’t mind having that position]).
  • Get back into meditating nightly.
  • Post an update (or question) in different groups that I belong to on Facebook. I’ve realized that I’m slowly losing motivation (or drive) on the transition plan (I want to transition, don’t get me wrong), and am curious to know if others had as well and what they did to gain the motivation and/or drive back.
