October 2017 Moon Forecast
This month we’re starting the turn towards fall in the Northern Hemisphere, and the shorter and darker days are just around the corner. We’re now wrapping up the bounty of summer, and getting ready for the long slow down of winter. What labors of yours still need to be harvested? What work do you still need to do this autumn? Take note and make a plan during the Full Moon in Aries, as once we hit the New Moon in Libra, things will gradually start to slow down as we get deeper into fall.What work do you still need to do this autumn? The Full Moon in Aries is asking you to do it. Click To Tweet
On October 5 at 2:40 pm EST, we have a Full Moon in Aries. Aries is all about action and independence. Aries asks us what are we doing for ourselves? What action do we need to be taking right now before the fiery energy of summer is gone? Where do you need to stand more firmly in your power? This Full Moon, as well as the days following are a great time to get things done, as there is a grand trine in earth happening over the weekend. For me, like many of you, I see Samhain / Halloween as a turning point, one that marks when the harvest seasons transitions from finishing up work and gathering, to celebrations of gratitude and thanks for all we have received this year. This Full Moon marks a kick off point to finish up that work before the New Moon in Libra rolls around.
Last Quarter Moon
October 12 at 8:25 am EST is the Last Quarter Moon in Cancer. Emotions can run high in Cancer, so give yourself the breathing room you need!
On October 19 at 3:12 pm EST, the New Moon in Libra occurs. There are three planets in Libra today, so there is a big change of focus to relationships and partnerships. Where are you relying too much on others, or giving too much of yourself? What areas of your life are out of balance and need to be called back into alignment?
First Quarter Moon
October 27 at 6:22 pm EST is the First Quarter Moon in Aquarius. Feeling a little detached? Make plans to hang with a group of friends.
