Happy October! The month begins with a Full Harvest Moon in Aries on October 1. We call the Full Moon closest to the Fall Equinox (which occurred on September 22, BTW) the Harvest Moon because it marks the transition of seasons and, in the Northern Hemisphere, the harvest season.

The Full Harvest Moon takes on a more orangey color because it’s closer to the horizon on this day. People say it’s the biggest and brightest luminary of the year. But this year, it’s actually the second smallest Full Moon of 2020 (on trend with the year).

This luminary aligns with the centaur Chiron, which is retrograde in Aries. A centaur is a term for a cosmic body with an erratic orbit...as well as the mythical horse-man combo. Nicknamed "the wounded healer," Chiron was named after a centaur (the horse kind) in Greek mythology who helped others mend their wounds and hearts—but his hurts were never amended.

This mythological metaphor rings true today. We’ll feel an immense yearning for the past and we’ll want to correct our mistakes. This vibe is echoed by the planetary ruler of Aries, Mars, being retrograde. Basically, it's time to get reflective and sentimental AF. Prepare to feel all the feels.

Aries

It’s been a while since you let yourself have a good cry. Grab a romantic tearjerker, a glass of wine, and a box of tissues. Let your emotions ~flow~. It'll feel good, promise.

Taurus

You’re too busy reminiscing about the past and dreaming about the future to realize that your life is actually really good in the present. Appreciate what you have right now.

Gemini

A friend is asking for your help. But before you give them your time and advice, make sure you’re in the right place to help. If you're in a bad mood, you should sit this one out.

Cancer

A major opportunity is coming up for you at work, right after something else ends. It’s time for you to step up and show your responsible side. Come out of your crab shell and let them see you shine!

Leo

Your adventurous side is calling! Take your impulsive fiery energy and make a bold move. Trust your intuition. Will you succeed? 100% guaranteed.

Virgo

It's time to make some changes, Virgo. Specifically, it's time to let go of all the old baggage you’ve been carrying around. Sparkly new energy is waiting for you, if you only make space.

Libra

PSA: Resist the urge to text your ex or check their IG. You'll be tempted, but it’ll just lead you down an emotional rabbit hole. Don’t do it, bb!

Scorpio

One of your juicy secrets is about to come to light, making you wish that you'd kept all your skeletons locked away. Instead of getting defensive, change the narrative and laugh off the gossip. Take your power back.

Sagittarius

It’s time for you to figure out what you want and need from your romantic relationships. Use this Full Moon to make wise choices about what makes you happy. Lean into your emotions!

Capricorn

In real sea-goat fashion, you’re looking at the past to understand the present. And you're getting stuck there. But you can't live in the past! Move forward, Cap.

Aquarius

An old friend wants to connect out of nowhere—and they want to apologize for the way they acted int he past. This is a great opportunity to make up and start fresh, but are you really ready to make nice?

Pisces

You have something to learn about love, Pisces. Namely, you have to learn to respect other people’s boundaries—and set your own. In fact, healthy boundaries can make your relationship even closer!
