There is no questioning the fact that the moon’s phases can have a significant impact on our lives, just ask any emergency room doctor or first responder. The night of the full moon is when ‘all the crazies come out’, a time of chaos and confusion. The next full moon is on October 24th, and it’s going to be a particularly challenging one for 3 zodiac signs.
Recognized as the ‘Ruler of Emotions’, the location of the moon in the zodiac has a significant impact on the way we feel and react to the world around us. This energy strengthens and wanes as the moon cycles through its phases, with the full moon representing the height of our emotions. It’s not that we feel ‘crazy’, that’s a common misconception. Instead, during the full moon, the emotions that you feel on a daily basis are intensified, which can lead people to react in an impulsive and erratic way. For example, if you have been frustrated with a specific situation leading up to the full moon, you may now find yourself experiencing moments of extreme anger.
On October 24th the full moon will once again grace the night skies, bringing its influence into our lives. This specific moon, more commonly referred to as the Full Hunter’s Moon, will occur in Taurus. Practical and dependable, one would assume that the influence of Taurus would work to ground us and minimize the impact that the full moon has on our lives. However, during the full moon, the moon is directly opposite the sun creating a unique dynamic. At this time, the sun is in the mysterious and passionate sign of Venus, bringing a somewhat reckless and overwhelming energy into the mix.
For some, this will be a great time to work on reassessing your relationships, identifying those that are worthy of your time and attention. It’s an opportunity to strengthen connections, embrace your differences and build your sense of self-worth. However, for a small number of zodiac signs, it’s not going to be that easy.
The Full Hunter’s Moon in Taurus will be incredibly difficult for these 3 zodiac signs:
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Just as the other signs are being called to reassess and re-evaluate their relationships, you will find yourself carrying out the same task. However, in your case, it will highlight some seriously toxic situations that you have allowed to continue for far too long in your life. It’s going to be difficult to face, after all, no one wants to believe that they have allowed someone into their lives with anything but the best of intentions, however, now is not the time to try to avoid reality. Rather than running from conflict, as you will be tempted to do, choose to face this situation head-on. Sure, it’s going to be hard and it’s likely going to hurt but it needs to be done. As soon as you free yourself from this toxic energy you can then redirect your energy to rebuilding your life with those that truly care for you. You’ll be better off in the long run.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
In the months leading up to this moment you have had some serious self-discovery, helping you to change and grow into a better, strong and more self-assured version of yourself. Congratulations, that’s something to be proud of! However, this full moon is going to reveal just how far you will go in some situations to keep others happy, regardless of what it will cost you. The new you is no longer willing to simply sit back and take this. Instead, finding your voice, you will stand up for yourself and express your own needs. Be prepared, there are some people who are going to be less than enthused. After all, they have gotten used to knowing they will always get what they want in your relationship. Don’t let this sway you – if you lose some of these relationships, know that you are merely letting go of negativity and revealing those people who truly care for you. They will be the ones cheering on your newfound confidence.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
As someone who prefers to keep your emotions buried away from the rest of the world, this isn’t going to be easy. The Full Hunter’s Moon is going to trigger some serious emotional overload on your part, and it’s going to be more than you have had to deal with in the past. Feeling overwhelmed, you’re likely going to lash out on friends and family, creating even more conflict and confusion. If you feel like you are about to lose control, try taking a step back, breathing slowly and counting to 10. At the same time, however, you need to patient with yourself. There is a good chance that these newfound emotions will, in turn, stir up some that you have been holding onto under the surface for a long time now. There is no better time than the present to learn this life lesson: the only way to release emotions for good is to sit with them, feel them and embrace them. It’s going to be hard, but when you walk away from this you will feel as though a huge burden has been lifted off your shoulders.
