This full Moon will be on Thursday afternoon, Oct. 1, 2020, appearing “opposite” the Sun. As the full Moon closest to the autumnal equinox (the end of summer and start of fall), this is the Harvest Moon.
The Aries full moon on Thursday, October 1, 2020, is linked to unstable Uranus through unstable aspects. So the major theme of the full moon October 2020 astrology is the release of tension. ***** DUCK *****
The October 2020 full moon is strongly influenced by Mars retrograde square Saturn. This indicates frustration and anger that has been building for at least one month.
The October 1 full moon also activates a fixed star that gives bad judgment and a quick temper. The combination of these influences creates a highly charged, impulsive, and dangerous full moon energy.
There will be a strong tendency to act impulsively and to lash out. Outrage, rebellion, and rioting are likely. But the tension created by the buildup of anger and frustration is best released more safely through flexibility and adaption.
This full moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
This can make you nervous, tense and anxious. A buildup of unstable electric energy can feel exciting but also scary. You may find it difficult to relax, especially if your freedom has been restricted or your creative self-expression blocked.
Pressure to change may come from someone with some power over you, changing circumstances, or an unexpected event. You may have to change your routine, behavior or plans. It is important to be flexible and adapt to changing conditions. An adjustment is needed whether you are forced to make changes or you find a different way forward yourself.
If you resist change, become arrogant or disruptive, you will suffer losses or miss out on an important opportunity. Being stubborn or overreacting would also damage your standing and prospects. You don’t need to totally change direction but rather make minor changes or alterations. Do not go too far or be too daring. Otherwise, you may have to start all over again.
So full moon October 2020 is likely to lead to an escalation of the unrest, rebellion, and rioting of recent weeks. The key to using this highly charged energy to your advantage is flexibility and adaptation. Minor changes and adjustments will allow you to take advantage of opportunities that arise from the changing conditions ahead.
The October 1 full moon lasts for two weeks up to the October 16 new moon. And that is followed by the second full moon of the month on the 31st, the October 2020 blue moon.
