It’s time to step into your authenticity and show up for yourself. Taking the lead and finding the will to compete will always require a certain amount of courage, but your full moon horoscopes for October 2022 are giving you the green light! After all, this full moon is in Aries. Allow this bold and powerful lunation to bring you the clarity and momentum you need to move forward. What era of your life are you ready to transition out of? Celestially fueled by the brilliant spark of Mars in Gemini, this month’s full moon in Aries is here to open your mind to the infinite possibilities, and illuminate a brand-new path that lies ahead.
Governed by red-hot Mars—planet conflict and passion—the best way to understand the impenetrable essence of Aries is by acknowledging the fact that its cardinal fire is powerful enough to initiate an entire journey through the zodiac. And while fellow cardinal signs—Cancer, Libra, Capricorn—initiate new cycles of life, Aries’ fire sign qualities have everything to do with the magic of fertility. After all, the first day of Aries season is always the first day of spring! Looking at this fire sign in a literal way can also put things into perspective, so imagine the blatant audacity and fearlessness required for Aries legend, Lady Gaga, to rock that meat-covered dress at the 2010 VMAs. I digress… but I rest my case. Here’s what you should know about the upcoming full moon in Aries:
The moon is symbolic of our intuition, inner foundation and shadow self, so when it reaches its full moon phase each month, it puts a spotlight on everything that’s been hidden from our conscious mind. Luna also sits directly across the sun during this time, highlighting what lacks balance between our inner and outer world. The emotional tides in our bodies also rise, which makes us more sensitive to our surroundings than usual. On a brighter note, the full moon can also be a time of celebration, culmination and completion.
The full moon in Aries will take place on October 9 at 4:54 p.m. ET.
This month’s full moon will take place on October 9 at 4:55 p.m. ET at exactly 16 degrees Aries. Sitting in close proximity to Chiron retrograde, what this lunation is illuminating could feel bittersweet given the wounded healer’s influence, but it’s not as bad as it looks. On the contrary, there are other aspects working in our favor, so don’t be discouraged. Naturally, anything involving Chiron has to do with a wound and/or emotional trigger we carry within ourselves… and in the case of Aries, this “trigger” relates to our personal autonomy.
Despite the discomfort that could come with confronting these vulnerabilities within ourselves, recognizing what they are and where they stem from brings us closer to our authentic nature, and individual truth. The good news is, the sun will be sitting alongside Venus in Libra, presenting us with an opportunity to share, connect and relate to those who genuinely have our best interest at heart. In other words, this is equivalent to your “when all else fails” moment, as you are being reminded of the support you have around you, whether you were aware of this or not.
This is especially significant to consider with Mars in Gemini, given that this transit is notorious for being fickle, distracted and overly analytical. So, opening up to your friends and family about what it is you’re personally going through can actually turn out to be quite rewarding—at least when it comes to getting genuine feedback. Keep in mind, Mars is also in harmony with Saturn retrograde and the sun, which helps us set ideas in motion and find our sense of direction, despite the sensory overload brought to you by Mars in Gemini.
