October 2021 Full Moon in Aries Horoscopes
The full moon in Aries debuts in all its fierce and feisty glory on Wednesday, October 20 at 7:57am PT. While it’s not Halloween just yet, this tension-filled lunation most definitely has some tricks up its sleeve. It’s ushering in a firestorm of change and upheaval. But if we’re willing to make the most of these turning points and trust the magic that lies on the other side, we’ll be able to weather this cosmic chaos.
With the full moon in bold and bossy Aries sitting across the skies from diplomatic and partnership-oriented Libra, we’re being asked to explore the way we lead, take charge, and assert our will. While our desire to act impulsively now is strong, the release-focused energy of the full moon may ask us to give up our need for speed and hit the brakes, as a lunar opposition with Mars (planet of passion) ups our chance for conflict and frustration.
Adding to the drama is the fact that the sun, moon, and Mars will also be locked in a collective square-off with intensity-fueled Pluto (planet of death and rebirth). Expect gaskets to blow on the emotional storms that have been brewing beneath the surface. Power struggles are likely to reach a sparks-filled climax, but thankfully, this release of tension will also bring us closer to a peaceful conclusion.
A hopeful sextile with no-longer-retrograde Jupiter (planet of abundance) serves as a silver lining on this lunar storm cloud, as it’ll soften some of this T-square’s hard edges and bring us a much-needed dose of optimism. Mercury (planet of communication) and Venus (planet of love) also make some harmonious connections. So, while the cosmic forecast shows a chance of showers, trust that just beyond it awaits a lush and bountiful rainbow, ready to stretch through your bright blue skies.
