October's Full Blood Moon in Aries Turns Up the Heat

A full moon in Aries lights up the night sky on October 9, sparking a fire within us all.

The ram is known for its take charge attitude and as the moon forms a sextile with disciplined Saturn, la luna's cycle urges you to prioritize your own needs and desires. The planet of wisdom and responsibility also rests 18 degrees of Aquarius, igniting a "get your sh--t done" attitude for the month ahead. Creating more cosmic tension, the moon opposes Venus, which sits 16 degrees of Libra, the zodiac's mediator, bringing underlying conflicts to the surface.

While the thought a blood moon may sound spooky, fear not as the passionate and confident Aries is unafraid of the dark, encouraging all to mirror the sign's bravery and determination.
