Bring me a Higher Love
The Full Moon in Aries October 13 adds momentum for potent change as it squares off to powerful Pluto and sober Saturn.
Full Moon October 13 highlights passion planet Venus in Scorpio with unpredictable Uranus. Just like children on a sea-saw, planets in opposition face off to each other with dynamic tension. Any aspect to Uranus represents pushing the limits or going beyond boundaries to take something to a higher level. As the planet of elevation pushes the planet of love and priorities, the month of October may bring opportunities to reevaluate what matters most in relationship.
Being in right relationship and integrity is essential right now. Are you aligned in mind and heart? Body and spirit? Take care to maintain the balance of thought, word and deed while you are pushing the boundaries of what you think is possible.
October astrology is a reminder to live authentically. Balance your needs gracefully with others. Transformation is required for all structures, personally and collectively. What are you willing to compromise and what would you consider your deepest values? Here are more questions for contemplation.
Full Moon October 13 is at 20 Aries (4:07PM EST)
Aries Full Moon theme: Intuition Requires Action.
If feeling confined or restricted, what action is required on my part to create movement?
In what ways have I been limiting myself?
What action steps are required to empower the life I love?
Am I living an inspired life in alignment with my values?
What is really worth fighting for?
How important is it for me to be right?
Can I assert my values and make my priorities clear gracefully?
October astrology is an opportunity to reconstruct the boundaries of what you think you can or cannot do.
Remember, Intuition requires Action.
October Full Moon Squares off to Powerful Pluto and Serious Saturn
Notice if you have a sense of what is driving you right now. Be clear with your motivations. Potent Pluto and and sober Saturn in the serious sign of Capricorn square off to both the Sun and a Full Moon in Aries on October 13. This planet pattern known as a T Square supports the intention of doing the right thing, at the right time, in the right place, with the right people.
Pluto and Saturn together in Capricorn forces the issue to dive deeper with integrity. See under the surface. Capricorn is a sign of responsibility and respect. This tempers the impulsive Aries Full Moon, and serves as an added reminder to be responsible for your actions and emotional reactions.
Venus is the ruling planet for the zodiac sign of Libra. Venus is the planet for priorities, values, love and money. Venus transits through Libra this year September 14 - October 8. Venus in its home sign of Libra brings an added emphasis to highlight values, or what you truly love.
Early October, harmony and diplomacy are the themes. The Sun in the balance sign of Libra squares off to serious Saturn in and powerful Pluto in the committed sign of Capricorn. Sun in Libra highlights how life is filled with contrasts. October astrology is a time to take decisive action on your projects and plans. Things slow down by months end as the next Mercury Retrograde begins October 31. That’s a three week cycle of reconsideration and reevaluation.
