We experience full moons every month of the year, but October seems to be the most appropriate time to tune into the spectacle, doesn’t it? Spooky season is in full effect now. And the shadow casting glow of a full moon adds to the general ~mood~. However, what the Oct. full moon means for your zodiac sign isn’t as spooky as you’d imagine. So even if you do catch sight of a witch on a broomstick cruising by la luna, the emotional implications of the moon phase won’t give you the chills.
While the theme of the mid-Autumn season is mini candy bars and flannels, the astrological theme goes deeper than the Halloween candy bag. On Oct. 5 the love and money planet we revere as Venus went retrograde. And it will stay that way until Nov. 16. According to Forever Conscious, the full moon on Oct. 24 and Venus retrograde will work hand in hand in learning the art of letting go. Full moons typically signify the completion of a phase, so this full moon might be a particularly good time to light some candles and let go of something or someone that no longer serves the higher purpose of your heart matters.
For some signs, this tango between the moon and Venus might bring financial matters into the spotlight. Forever Conscious writes, “While Venus is the ruler of the heart, she also rules over money, profits, and commissions. Under this Full Moon, our finances may be highlighted and we may have to take some measures to overhaul and create more security in our lives.” Don’t hide under the blanket! No matter what this full moon on Oct. 24 means for your sign, it won’t be that scary.
According to AstroStyle, October’s full moon is illuminating your house of “work, money and security.” Which is basically like having a slots machine light up in winning beams of bright colors. A goal you might have written in your journal way back when (in May) could be coming to a “profitable” conclusion around this time. Go ahead and dust those shoulders off!
This full moon is in your sign, Taurus, so tune in to the moonbeams and those emotions of yours! Cafe Astrology writes, “This lunation can bring a sudden revelation, and these can relate to your personal freedoms or attention to a partnership.” Don’t be surprised if you come across a surprising impulse with this full moon in your sign.
Are you ready for an exhale so cleansing that it will feel as though you have just showered in the waterfalls of Eden? Great. The Oct. 24 full moon offers healing for the Twins. If there’s something to let go of, or someone’s picture to finally move to the delete folder, this will be the time to do so. Don’t cling on to the things that are joy’s energy suck. AstroStyle writes, “This full moon could be a powerful portal for a spiritual message—don’t dismiss any strong intuitive flashes or inner guidance!”
It’s easy to get caught up in your own shell, Cancer. It’s comfortable in there. But the Oct. 24 full moon might have you realizing that you need to spend more time outside. Cafe Astrology writes, “After becoming wrapped up in your personal life, you may realize the need to reach out to others and remind them that they matter to you.” This full moon could be a good time to share with the people you feel the most connected to.
Leo, your calendar might be blowing up with alerts around the full moon. This lunation is all about finding a balance between your besties and water cooler pals. Cafe Astrology says that the moon, “may bring the culmination of a significant work project or a scurry of activity on the job or in your public life.” While your professional services may require the heft of your responsibilities, make sure you also send the group chat a GIF that’ll make them laugh.
The full moon whizzes into your ninth house of “global connections,” as told by AstroStyle. What does this intriguing house mean for you? The Astro Twins write, “this full moon could bring an utterly magical moment in which one of your gambles pays off or a visionary idea springs to life—and spreads like wildfire. Your hunger for knowledge could be sated by a mind-blowing realization that helps you see a situation from a new perspective.” Something is going to click into place and apparently, it might be an airplane’s seatbelt this time.
Any feelings that have been flying off the radar will most likely make their way into the spotlight on Oct. 24 courtesy of the full moon’s illumination. According to Cafe Astrology, “There can be a turning point or announcement in a relationship now.” Don’t be afraid to acknowledge all those ~feels~!
You don’t have to wait until the eve of a new year to redefine how you want to approach your life and the important relationships in it. You can make resolutions on say, Oct. 24, when the full moon lights up the night sky. It’ll feel important to re-write the definitions, terms and conditions on particular relationship dynamics. The full moon could help you hash out which relationships are right and which aren’t bringing you much joy these days.
Maybe wear a sleep mask around the full moon so you can actually get some rest in with all that night light pouring into your sleep sanctuary. This full moon won’t be upset you’re shutting it out, anyways. For Sagittarius, the full moon on Oct. 24 is all about wellness. AstroStyle says, “You might decide to make a radical change to your diet, exercise or work routines.” Whatever the change, make sure it’s not too drastic that you drop it.
As Kristin Cavallari once proclaimed on MTV, “Dramaaaa.” The word may follow you around as the moon reaches its fullest phase. According to Cafe Astrology, “there can be some drama in your romantic life.” At least it won’t be made for TV and if we’ve learned anything from our beloved SoCal soap operas, things always getting sorted out.
Reality check, Aquarius. A natural humanitarian, you’re pulled to save the world, at least a little part of it, on the regular. But the world is a very big place and sometimes your personal life requires that same level of enthusiasm and attention. Cafe Astrology writes, “It’s essential to have a strong sense of what you can and cannot do, not by lowering your standards, but through self-honesty and realism, and the last week of October brings gorgeous energies to help with this.” From worldly to wellness efforts, use this full moon as a chance to breathe and recuperate so you can get back out there with a freshly ironed cape and manicured nails.
According to AstroStyle, this full moon will illuminate your “third house of communication and community.” Those grand plans that you’ve been sitting on for months could suddenly be ready for their debut! The Astro Twins advise to expect the unexpected and the chance for all these things to happen at the drop of the hat. Stay alert, Pisces!
