The full moon for October occurs on the 5th at 2:40PM ET in fiery Aries. With Aries, we can make progress with the things we've done well and right by, and this can make us more enthusiastic and energized by what we're doing. We can also experience setbacks and delays if we need to adjust, and this can make us defensive and need to take a step back.
We can be a lot more impulsive and impatient with an Aries full moon, and we want everything and we want it right now. We need to take it down a notch and channel some of our excess energy and frustrations into something positive, or at least have a healthy outlet. It can be a good time to keep busy, especially physically, though it can also be a time of accidents and injuries.
The full moon opposes Mercury in airy Libra, so we can have problems with communication, get into misunderstandings and fights, and need to do more listening and not just hearing. My way or the highway won't work, and compromise is needed. There can also be elevated accident energy, so no texting while driving!

October's new moon occurs on the 19th at 3:12PM ET in fair-minded Libra, and we can focus on trying to find some peace and strike a balance. We can meet in the middle and make compromises that will give everyone a little win and keep us from going over the edge. It's a time to come together and be respectful.
Libra is the sign of relationships, so we can focus more on the people in our lives, enter into new relationships and partnerships, and find more value in committed relationships of all kinds. We can be more supportive of the people we care about, show more commitment, and work on balancing our wants and needs with the wants and needs of others.
The new moon opposes rebellious Uranus in Aries, so unfortunately, it's not all diplomacy and peace with this new moon. There can be some unrest, some feelings of uneasiness and impulsiveness, and we can push and pull and bend and break if we feel we're being treated unfairly. We want our individuality and independence to be respected.
The new and full moons for this month are a bit problematic with these aspects, and I'm a little worried about violence. Everyone, take some deep breaths!
