Lit matches are meant to be tiny, short-lived, and a bit risky.

They’re quick, hot, bright, and helpful, to the extent that one’s intentions are helpful, and one’s circumstances allow. Their function is to transfer energy into something longer-lasting, brighter, and warmer.

This weekend’s full moon (Sunday, October 09) is occurring in Aries, an initiatory fire sign, reflecting the light of the sun in Libra, the balancer. Mars rules Aries and is currently in Gemini. Full moons represent a culmination of energy and a peak of public awareness.

On this day we may find ourselves becoming aware of a variety of risks to weigh as we determine our next move in a life with no regrets.
