October’s Full Moon takes place in the sign of Aries at 16°32’ and will be in conjunction with Chiron. In this current age, the sign of Aries is overlayed by the constellation of the Fish and where the March equinox (Zero Aries) is located.
From an experiential perspective, the Moon stays full for about 3 days and so will look full on the 8th and 10th as well. The sign of Aries being strongly activated this time in conjunction with Chiron is a pre-cursor to a period of time between late February and mid-May where the nature of Aries comes fully into view. This is due to various conjunctions taking place in Aries in 2023.
Aries is the archetype of the warrior in traditional definitions but its essence is mission-oriented, rugged individualist who is loyal to a cause or purpose. This essence is operating in the context of this age and seen more of the alpha-like energy that competes for everything, is ambitious and desires victory above all else. It also strongly shows up in those needing to show their strength in the world or to rescue all that are in need.
Since the Full Moon is conjunct Chiron, this will emphasize the vulnerabilities and the medicine needed through Aries. This includes the recognition of knowing that acknowledging one’s place of vulnerabilities is also a strength. Aries can have a tendency to avoid discussions about cracks in their armor or especially their feelings. In some segments of society, it amounts to never admitting defeat or being wrong. This can, at times, show up with the signs of Leo, Scorpio or a few others.
