Tips for this month's FULL MOON
FULL MOON REMINDER... Wednesday, October 24th, 12:45 pm - EDST, is the FULL MOON exact day and time in OCTOBER! Don’t miss this chance to view your life objectively. During the three days around the Full Moon, you can see where you need to make changes in an important relationship. Once aware of your interaction, how can you best adjust your approach so that you can more successfully reach your life goals? It’s time for reevaluation.
There is an opportunity for insight and progress inherent in the FULL MOON. People often react emotionally during the days of the Full Moon due to a feeling of helplessness. They become aware of the distance between the way they want their life to be, and the way it currently is. Often, when they see this gap, they become upset.
Because this FULL MOON occurs in the sign of TAURUS, the emotional energy stirred in the atmosphere will be a bit rigid. Feelings of stubbornness may arise when you become aware of how current circumstances may not be supporting the larger goals in your life.
You will be very aware of the limitations in your life that bind you through the bond of a business or personal commitment, leaving you without the time to enjoy your own life and take care of your needs. You may be questioning how to balance your time better between relationship obligations and activities that bring you comfort and appreciation of life.
Those you are interacting with may perceive situations in a way that leads them to fear they can’t depend upon you, which may result in an emotional outburst on their part. As is often the case with the days of the Full Moon, people get upset. Sometimes simply pulling back and going ‘aloof’ until the emotional upset passes is the wisest route.
This is a powerful time (10/23 - 10/26) for reevaluating the new beginnings you made during the last New Moon. Re-read your wish list and notice the ways in which you are now either closer to--or further away from--the dreams in your heart that you would like to manifest in your life.
Given that this FULL MOON is in the sign of TAURUS, you are likely to be more aware than usual of your own needs for money, sensual enjoyment, and feeling in touch with the earth. What adjustments can you make in handling important relationships so that others recognize and support your needs?
The Full Moon in TAURUS opposes the Sun in SCORPIO, so when people become upset, they are likely to react with more solid anger than you anticipated. If this happens, recognize that the situation is going too fast for whomever is upset. It’s likely that they feel thrown out of their comfort zone and are trying to repel outer influences in order to get back into themselves. Don’t push them. Speak slowly and gently and things will settle down again.
Times during this Full Moon when the emotional intensity will be at its strongest:
Tuesday, 10/23 – all day and night; especially volatile 2:18pm - midnight
Wednesday, 10/24 - all day and night; especially volatile midnight - 10:33am
Thursday, 10/25 - all day and night
Friday, 10/26 - the energy starts to calm
These times are in Eastern Daylight Savings Time (EDST) and need to be converted to your local time zone. Keep in mind that if you are not observing Daylight Savings Time, subtract one hour, and then convert to your time zone. The Moon Box on the Homepage of this site (upper right corner) will tell you how many hours difference your location is from the Eastern Time Zone in the US.
