The full moon arrives on Wednesday October 24, 2018 in the sign of earthy Taurus, and joins the planet Uranus to bring the biggest change of the year.
This October Full Moon horoscope is about change, excitement and uncertainty – especially in relationships. Venus opposite Uranus focuses the change and uncertainty on love relationships but also your finances.
This moon makes a more helpful aspect to Saturn which moderates the erratic and impulsive nature of Uranus. It turns unexpected changes into opportunities and relationship uncertainty into reassurance and commitment.
The fixed stars joining the October 24 full moon also bring a mix of problems and solutions. So Uranus with full moon October 2018 may bring unexpected love but will also show the vulnerabilities in your love life and finances. Saturn brings practical solutions that lead to greater security and stability.
Here is what each zodiac sign can expect from this powerful full moon:
Solid as a rock—that’s you, Taurus, and those who love you wouldn’t have it any other way. Through all life’s changes, it’s comforting to know they can always count on you. But why should they be the only ones who get to evolve? This full moon may stir up some resentment, but it can also inspire a self-reinvention that’s long overdue.
Job security may be an outdated concept, Gemini, but it’s something you value much more than you let on. And in today’s fast-paced world, you’ve got what it takes to stick around: versatility, adaptability, and a willingness to evolve. If you’re stuck in a rut at work, though, this full moon can show you where to make a change.
Your friends can always depend on you, Cancer. But how do you know who’s got your back? It’s not always the people you’ve known the longest or share the most history with. Someone you think of as a casual acquaintance could turn out to be your greatest ally… but only if you give them a chance. At this full moon, their loyalty may surprise you.
The value of hard work isn’t lost on you, Leo. But what good is success if you never take the time to enjoy it? The challenge is knowing when to relax, and when to keep pushing yourself. At this full moon, it may feel like an uphill battle, but you’ll have to fight inertia to get things back on track.
There’s an explanation for everything, Virgo—and you’ll keep looking until you find one. But your habitual ways of understanding the world may not be much help at this full moon. What you see isn’t always what you get… so if you want to understand what’s happening in your immediate environment, you’ll have to dig a little deeper.
Asking for help doesn’t make you needy, Libra—it makes you resourceful. After all, why go it alone when you’ve got plenty of backup? But it’s easy to get too used to depending on others… and that’s a hard habit to break. If someone lets you down at this full moon, it just means you’ll have to draw upon your own resources this time.
Evolve or die, Scorpio: it’s a fact of life for our species, and also for our relationships. And you’re better than most at knowing when it’s time to let something die. Still, at this full moon, you may be reluctant to let go—even if it’s only letting go of control. Make sure you’re not resisting a change that really needs to happen.
We know you as the eternal optimist, Sagittarius. And it’s true—with your resilience and resourcefulness, you can make the best of any situation. But when you’re stuck in one place for too long, it can really get you down. Try to keep the faith at this full moon. Dig deep, and bloom where you’re planted… at least for now.
“Me, myself, and I…” Sounds like your kind of party, doesn’t it, Capricorn? And we’re all for enjoying a little solitude now and then. But being alone all the time makes it easy to get set in your ways. At this full moon, try balancing me-time with some kind of group activity. (And yes, you can be the one to organize it.)
“Sustainable energy” isn’t just for the environment, Aquarius: When you’re out there fighting the good fight, it’s a must for you as well. Having a home base, somewhere comfortable and safe to recharge your batteries, can make all the difference… especially at this full moon. Don’t think of it as being lazy; think of it as resting up for the revolution!
It’s totally understandable, Pisces, if you’re not a fan of small talk. Whatever’s going on in that head of yours, it’s definitely more interesting than what everyone else is droning on about! Go ahead and enjoy the silence at this full moon—just don’t rule out the possibility of a deep, transformative conversation. Maybe they’re just waiting for you to change the subject.
No one tells you what to do with your hard-earned money, Aries. But doing things “your way” doesn’t always work out for the best. At this full moon, it’s actually in your best interest to ask for help. Advice from a professional (or a financially-savvy friend) can show you how to change your habits and set yourself up for long-term success.
