October's Full Blood Moon in Aries Turns Up the Heat

This full moon teaches you to put yourself first.

A full moon in Aries lights up the night sky on October 9, sparking a fire within us all.

The ram is known for its take charge attitude and as the moon forms a sextile with disciplined Saturn, la luna‘s cycle urges you to prioritize your own needs and desires. The planet of wisdom and responsibility also rests 18 degrees of Aquarius, igniting a “get your sh–t done” attitude for the month ahead. Creating more cosmic tension, the moon opposes Venus, which sits 16 degrees of Libra, the zodiac’s mediator, bringing underlying conflicts to the surface.

While the thought a blood moon may sound spooky, fear not as the passionate and confident Aries is unafraid of the dark, encouraging all to mirror the sign’s bravery and determination.

Keep reading to see what this month’s full moon has in store for you.

Aries

Falling in your first house of self, October 9 is the perfect opportunity to banish any Sunday scaries and indulge in an evening of self-care. Break out your journal and tap into any deep-seated emotions that have been stewing internally. Empty your brain and your heart, so you can move forward into Halloween season with a clear head.

Taurus

Shining a light in you twelfth house of spirituality, the full moon in Aries invites you to give your soul some major TLC. Feel free to take a seat in front of the altar, break out the crystals and ask your energetic guides for some cosmic assistance. Chances are you’ve been feeling a bit adrift in the wake of Mercury Retrograde, so take this time to ground yourself.

Gemini

Sitting in your eleventh house of networking, the desire to reunite with good friends and socialize is at an all time high. Sister circles are an age-old way of honoring the full moon, but remember — Mars is currently taking up space in your sign, so tread carefully as the planet of war might muddy the lines of communication.

Cancer

The full moon lies in your tenth house of career, encouraging you to put your full force behind your passion project or side hustle. Aries are known for their independent spirits, so feel inspired by the strong-headed ram to leave fear and self-doubt behind and go after your professional dreams.

Leo

Your ninth house of higher knowledge and travel takes center stage on October 9 as the full moon turns your attention towards brighter horizons. If you’ve been feeling a little stir-crazy, take a trip to a nearby town or city for a change in perspective or do some inner travel by being productive and expanding your skillset.

Virgo

Given our last Mercury retrograde was in your sign, there’s no doubt the past few weeks have presented one headache after the other. With the full moon in Aries resting in your eighth house of intimacy, death and resurrection, take comfort in your tight-knit circle and share what’s on your mind. As the zodiac’s perfectionist, you can shoulder a lot of burdens yourself, but if there’s anything you’ve learned is that there is strength in numbers.

Libra

Taking up space in your seventh house of partnership, the full moon offers a wonderful opportunity to flex your amazing social skills. Represented by balancing scales, think about what you need from your one-on-one relationships to feel satisfied and fulfilled.

Scorpio

Health is wealth is your full moon mantra as the celestial being is in your sixth house of daily routine and wellness. Consider October 9 the time to emulate “that girl,” but make sure your adopting habits that make you feel like your best self.

Sagittarius

With the full moon in your fifth house of pleasure, consider October 9 your cosmic permission slip to be selfish and do whatever makes you happiest — or horniest. The goal is to engage in activities you truly enjoy, whether that means some solo or shared sexy time or vegging out on the couch. Go for it.

Capricorn

Putting a spotlight in your fourth house of domesticity gives you the gumption to tackle that pesky work-life balance. As the literal goat of the twelve zodiac signs, you are one ambitious force to be reckoned. Now, it’s time to shift that go-getter attitude towards your home life and sweep up any emotional cobwebs.

Aquarius

The full moon in Aries is in your third house of communication and as the zodiac’s most progressive thinker, pick up your journal to dive deep into that big, beautiful brain of yours. It’s likely this is turning out to be the busiest time of year for you and your social calendar is full. Don’t forget to carve out some time to listen to yourself.

Pisces

Falling in your second house of income, the full moon pushes you to take stock of not only your material wealth, but the overall abundance of your life. It’s uber-important to make sure you’re spending your money wisely, but be extra cautious about how you’re spending your energy and around whom.
