The October Full Moon In Aries Is Bringing Powerful Healing For Deep Wounds


With Chiron and Mars highlighting the lunar event, this is sure to be one for the record books.

Well, it’s 2020, and that means you’ve certainly got some wounds to deal with. Whether it’s anger, relationships, past karmic issues, trusting others, or your plain ol’ run of the mill resentment and hurt, this Full Moon in Aries is going to help you navigate (and possibly heal) from all those pesky troubles.

This upcoming moon has a lot of synchronicities of which you might not be aware. Named “The Harvest Moon,” this Full Moon is preparing us for the second (but equally important) full moon happening this month, named “The Hunter’s Moon.” Chiron will be in close conjunction with the October 1st Full Moon, as well as the blue moon on Halloween. This holds special significance because Chiron is also a hunter, a notable one at that, and his aim seldom misses. We are really going to feel our pain this week, but it’s for a good reason- so we can identify and heal.

If you’re thinking, “there’s a lot to heal from, how will I know what I need to focus on?” Don’t stress. The messages are going to be crystal clear, and Mars is going to help.

Mars is currently in retrograde, in the same sign as this full moon, Aries. This means that the illumination of the Full Moon is going to highlight, with extreme clarity, all the opportunities for healing. It will be a chance to finally tend to the wounds buried deep in our psyche. And hey, sometimes we are the problem. Reaching deep down inside and pulling out our own toxic traits is the hardest thing anyone can do, but it’s that kind of self-work that makes life more enjoyable in the long run.

The result of this Full Moon’s astrological energy, combined with Chiron and Mars, is amplified emotions, feelings and mental ability.

Your horoscope for this time is going to be a personal one, and it might hit a little harder than normal, but the messages are pertinent advice to follow.

ARIES – This full moon will meet Chiron in your sign, triggering a surge of energy which could bring some internal tension. You’re allowed to change. In fact, changing is what life is all about. Take stock of how you feel now as opposed to how you used to feel.

TAURUS  – This full moon could trigger your desire (or crutch) to escape or hide from reality, Taurus. There’s a part of you no one will never truly understand. It’s hidden in your subconscious and it subtly influences every aspect of your life. Dive deep into your subconscious and reflect on what you’re still carrying within. It’s time to forgive yourself and begin the process of healing. Acknowledge the pain and let it all out.

GEMINI – Your friendship sector will be highlighted this October full moon, potentially bringing up wounds that have not fully healed when it comes to fitting into a social circle.  You may be recognizing the impact you’d like to have on the world. Your passion extends not only to your own personal success, but also the success of others. There needs to be a deeper meaning behind what you wish for; it has to change the world for the better.

CANCER – This full moon could bring up any insecurities centered around success and your professional status, Cancer. What’s been holding you back from giving it a shot? Is it fear of failure? Fear of responsibility? Whatever it may be, facing your fear is better than allowing it to govern your life.

LEO – This full moon, Chiron and Mars retrograde are highlighting your beliefs, exploration, higher education, legal matters and travel sector, Leo. If you’ve been hung up on one small detail or imperfection, take a step back and consider the whole picture. There are opportunities, philosophies, and new experiences that await you. Let go of your former opinions and allow yourself to be changed.

VIRGO – Intimacy, property, taxes, investments and how you share resources will be highlighted this full moon, Virgo.  You only have so much energy to give, and if you remained hung up on the past, you’ll wind up wasting it. If a chapter is coming to a close, consider investing yourself in something new. You’re embracing the process of deep spiritual transformation. So much is coming.

LIBRA – Relationships are a big focus for you this full moon, Libra. This might include business partnerships or long-term romantic relationships, or potentially both. You may be realizing which relationships are significant to you and how you can strengthen them even more. You may be seeing how you can be a better partner and demand the same from your partner in return. Let harmony, empathy, and trust lead the way.

SCORPIO – This full moon will highlight your day-to-day responsibilities, health and pets, Scorpio. Now is the time to focus on ways that you can be more efficient. It’s all cause and effect. What choices are you making in your life?  Now’s the time to rethink your day-to-day routine. How can you improve your life’s balance between work and play? It’s time to take better care of your mind, body, and spirit.

SAGITTARIUS – This full moon will fall in your house of fun, creativity, romance and children. Have you been stalling on a creative project? It’s time to harness the creativity and pleasure that your inner child continues to carry for you.

CAPRICORN – Your home life is top of mind during this full moon, Capricorn. You might have trouble finalizing a new place, deciding on a roommate or finishing a renovation. You may be realizing how you need to do a better job of nurturing your home life and replenishing your connection with your family. Let your heart lead the way and spread compassion where it counts.

AQUARIUS – This full moon will bring focus to your siblings, transportation, technology, communication and learning sectors, Aquarius. Everything that wasn’t communicated clearly (or intentionally) may be making itself known. This is teaching you how to maintain boundaries with what information you decide to share with others and what you decide to keep to yourself. Let integrity and loyalty be your guiding light.

PISCES – Get ready to address any financial issues you’ve been neglecting, Pisces, as this full moon is here to illuminate your earned income and self-worth sector. This is a beautiful time to reconsider your budget, your spending habits, and how you can save for a rainy day. Ask yourself what it is you need versus what you want. Focus on a goal rather than your impulses.
