Everyone calls October the spooky season in honor of Halloween, but it's the Hunter's Moon that one should pay attention to.
October is nearly halfway through already and it's time to prepare for the next full moon — the Hunter's Moon. According to the Farmer's Almanac, as referenced by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), it's around this time that the hunt begins. With all the leaves falling, the fields reaped, and the deers fattened, the hunters can easily spot the animals that have come out and the foxes that have come to prey on them. Hence the name for this full moon, which will appear on October 13.
But what does the Hunter's Moon mean for the rest of us? Here's what the October 2019 full moon means for you, based on your zodiac sign:
This full moon, change is headed your way. You'll find yourself trying to navigate a balance between your professional and personal life to keep your peace. But more than that, it's your relationship that will see some change. Either you might be trying to get to a common ground with your partner in a team effort or you could be getting into a power struggle that could alter your relationship. The latter could mean that you might need to take a step back to assess what your relationship means to you before you make your decisions.
Taureans, this full moon could be the time where all the hard work you've been putting in so far, finally comes to fruition. Personally, all the routines and goals you set in place for yourself to enjoy some self-care are serving you well right now. The rewards will make you feel like the personal growth you struggled with for so long is actually worth it. It will also help your relationship with your partner feel more fulfilling, now that you're also taking care of your own happiness.
Geminis, this full moon is a chance for you to really look at the relationships with your loved ones right now. Some of them may no longer be aligned to you and you'll have to make the tough decision of choosing which ones are of value. Look for those bonds wherein the people associated allow you to express yourself and do their best to encourage your playful creativity. Cutting out toxicity is just what you need at this point. You'll have to make some changes here and there but your ability to adapt will do you well.
For most of the year, you've spent your time putting things into place both at home and at work. And now, you'll get to reap the rewards of it. It might become a bit overwhelming, but this is the time to be assertive and find a good balance between your professional and personal life. You might be looking at your dream home or job and though some commitment issues might crop up and emotionally overwhelm you, the sensitive yet strong nature of yours will help you get through it.
The pen is mightier than the sword but for you Leos, good conversations are far mightier right now. Your confident nature might come across as dominating or too strong, whether at work or in your relationship. You may have to deal with a few power struggles and make a tough choice on how to go about it. You might choose to change jobs, have a good one-on-one talk with your partner or even get into some habits that nourish you so that you can find the peace you desire.
Virgos, money, and finances are key for you this Hunter's Moon. You might need to be a little careful this month about finances and issues that you've been having regarding it have finally reached a point where you can make a balanced and informed decision about it, especially regarding your family life. It might take center-stage in arguments you have with loved ones, but the important thing is to keep your famous cool-headedness about it and respond and not react.
Librans, this is an important full moon for your relationships, especially for your romantic ones. While you might witness some tension between your partner and family or you could be torn between important people, it is this time when you need to be level-headed, calm, diplomatic and fair. Others may not like it so much, but if you feel the storm brewing, you might need to step in and fight for the people who are in the right. It could cause stress between you and others, but your patience will help heal that.
You might be the best at living a balanced life, but this full moon, deep inner issues may just boil over. When you're highly emotional, you might have to be very careful with what you say and to whom you say it, because you might regret it later. You've been holding back a lot and it's only fair that you need to let it out. But if you need an outlet and you have to share, try your best to do it with care and compassion instead of anger and resentment.
Your finances recently may have been making you feel somewhat restricted and can make you act out a bit. But don't worry. All the hard work you've been putting towards your goals have been rewarding, even if it's coming in trickles. Be proud of everything you have already achieved and keep going at that steady pace instead of acting too quickly to move things along. The gains at the end will be even more worth it.
Capricorns, for you, this full moon is one of the most important ones. You'll start to see the various aspects of your life — your work, your home, your relationships, your personal growth — all of it start to fall into place like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. However, if that starts to stagnate, it could mean that there is something in your life that you might have to let go of in order for those pieces to sit properly. It could be a career goal or an issue with your partner that hasn't been addressed yet.
Every hour of work that you put into the goals you achieved is coming to fruition. All the knowledge you gathered during the experiences that improved your home life or work life will draw others to you for wisdom. So pat yourself on the back! Now, all you have to do is excise your inner demons and make peace with your past. After all, you already proved you have the willpower, strength, and knowledge to do it.
This full moon represents a time for making important financial decisions, not just for you, but for your partner too. Over the past few months, money might have put a bit of strain on both of you as well as your relationship, especially when it comes to your personal and shared goals. But fear not. The Hunter's Moon, though it will not completely eradicate your issues, will help give you clarity on how to go about making financial choices. If anything, it might even help smoothen out that issue between you and your partner.
