We've got a full moon on October 13th (5:08PM ET) in fiery Aries, and full moons in Aries tend to come with a lot of energy as Aries is a fire and cardinal sign ruled by energetic Mars. But with full moons being emotional, we may be driven by what we feel to take action, and can be moved around by emotion. Sometimes these emotions can get the better of us, and we can blow up and be more easily irritated, frustrated, and annoyed. A healthy outlet for those feelings is needed!
As Aries is the first sign, full moons in Aries can be times when we finalize plans to start something, see the culmination of something we've begun, or it's the end of the beginning of beginning of the end in some way. Whatever happens can determine whether something lives on and makes it all the way, or falls apart and loses steam.
This full moon is square (hard aspect, 3 signs away) transit Pluto in Capricorn and trine (positive aspect, 4 signs away) transit Jupiter in Sagittarius. The square to Pluto really amplifies the aggression, and we may fight more over power and control and need to take a step back. This may prove difficult though, and there may be some major fighting of some sort with this full moon. The trine to Jupiter wants us to try and not be so serious, not sucked into the drama. But Pluto may not play nice enough for that!
The full moon occurs at 20 degrees 13 minutes Aries, The major aspects this full moon makes are:
Conjunction: 18 degrees 13 minutes - 22 degrees 13 minutes Aries
Sextile: 18 degrees 13 minutes - 22 degrees 13 minutes Gemini or Aquarius
Square: 18 degrees 13 minutes - 22 degrees 13 minutes Cancer or Capricorn

October's new moon comes on the 27th (11:38PM ET) in serious Scorpio. A Scorpio new moon tends to be more serious than a usual new moon, and we can focus on what we want to do intensely. We can work on starting something new, and throw ourselves into it completely. We can channel passionate energy into it productively, and try to push as far as we can.
Scorpio is very researching, so we may try to get to the heart of a matter that we've been struggling to find a solution for. This sign also governs transformations, so we may embark on a new transformation of something, and hopefully that makes things better.
This new moon is opposite transit Uranus in Taurus, so rebellious energy can get thrown into the mix with this new moon, and if we feel like anyone is trying to box us in, we can push back in a big way. There may be a sudden change with this new moon or something unexpected, some erratic energy that needs to be controlled, or something impacting the masses. Keep calm and be cautious!
