Full Moon Meaning For October 2017
This Full Moon is Sun opposite Moon which highlights opposing forces or polarities in your life. Examples of this could include, but not limited to: ego vs emotions, work vs home, or what you need vs what you want. There may be inner tension or external pressure which can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts will definitely reach their chock-full peak at the full moon. To overcome any challenges during this intense time, look towards your own emotional strength and intuition. Being more subconsciously aware allows for a balanced outlook at your personal relationships such as romantic relationships, friendships, other family relations, co-workers, etc. You will clearly see any relationships dynamics or negative feelings that is causing you disharmony.
This Full Moon has influenced the New Moon which did occur on September 20th, 2017. Any new moon goals or ideas can therefore be fine-tuned, revaluated or completed. It now harvesting season. A time to adjust to what you have set in motion towards these goals. While this previous moon phrase of the New Moon did open up painful wounds you have suffered in the past, and I sense for many of you this was a very difficult and painful process for you; it was necessary in order for the healing to beginning…..to become renewed once more. This healing process is different for everyone and it can be an ongoing process for many people. Healing is also involve adapting to change, little changes and unexpected changes, making adjustments to whatever may come your way. As the popular British-American rock band of the 1970s hit was “Go Your Own Way”. (1977) I am reminded of this song, as it is phrase to remember that we are all on our own journey in life and in spirituality.
Full Moon in 12° Aries
The October 5 full moon at 12°42′ Aries is most affected by Mercury. Mercury is a masculine energy, and means “messenger of the Gods” in astrology. This means that communicating your feelings will be a major theme over the next two weeks. This Full Moon is also linked directly to Neptune which means your thoughts may be influence by self-delusion, paranoia, lies and deception.
There are also some fixed stars as well that will have some influence over the full moon in October 2017; as well as two very significant planetary aspects. One of these is Venus conjuncts Mars, which will happen two hours before the full moon. This means that love relationships will be a major topic of discussion but also war and peace.
Aspects of the Full Moon in October 2017
Moon opposite Mercury involves communicating your feelings for this full moon. You may also experience difficult with scrambled thinking where it may be hard to make sense of everyday problems. This can result in arguments caused by emotional bias or just simple lack of understanding. Other influences in your thinking may include addiction, racism or prejudice. Sensitive discussion topics and negotiations will be difficult over the next couple of weeks. Best piece of advice is to choose your words carefully over the coming weeks if you are planning to speak on a sensitive topic.
Mercury and the Sun quincunx Neptune can twist your perception of reality. While it may bring glamour or intrigue into your life, there is a need of balance between the two. However, this balancing act can also manifest as a saviour and a victim, or saint and sinner. There is potential to over idealize someone over to be sadly disappointed. A certain level of scepticism is healthy, but theirs is also a potential of paranoia and hypochondria.
Now is the time to avoid negative people, situations or any form of negative influence. Only trust people whom you really know so you don’t fall victim to lies, deception, gossip, fraud. It is important to keep your own personal awareness positive because your own self-worth is important. You are worthy of friendship and relationships that are balanced of both giving and receiving. Keep in mind that you can always to set boundaries with other people if necessary. With all quinxcunx aspects, it’s always a balancing act! Too much pride would lead to a fall, just too much self-pity will lead to failure.
Venus conjunct Mars increases one’s desires for intimate relations. Driven by an intense need for sexual satisfaction, you can become more direct in your approach in searching for a mating partner. Increased charisma and popularity making socialising more enjoyable, and exciting. This time is ideal for both romance and making new friends. There is also much satisfaction in creative outlets for those who may not be seeking a romantic partner at this point in time. Being artistic, through painting, drawing, dancing, or sculpture. This is to incorporate both the physical and the emotional aspects of expression.
There are two other aspects to the Venus Mars conjunction. A square to Saturn can inhibit your loved life while a trine to Pluto can enhance it. Again in full moon October 2017 there two distinct possibilities. You can choose to overcome the obstacles and take advantage of the benefits.
For those in relationships Venus square Saturn and Mars square Saturn can add stress to intimate or love relationships due to negative feelings, distance, or other relationship problems. While each party may have desires and needs that they wish to grow stronger, but it may be harder to express each party’s passions and succeed. Now, it’s important to put in the extra effort to avoid the risk of relationship drama. Being motivated in any relationship is challenging, and while you may prefer to be doing other activates, it is vital to keep working towards relationship harmony between you and your partner. This is no time to ignore your responsibilities, especially for loved ones. The best approach now is a defensive one. Be patient and plodding hard work get you these results of relationship success.
