Now that October is here, so is the full moon we’ve all been waiting for. This full moon is in Aries and it’s one that a lot of us are going to feel pretty conflicted over.

We all know this full moon is going to really mix things up and with that, a lot of tensions will come forth. As you may know, this moon is heavily influenced by Mars’ retrograde which for some of us might break things down in ways we otherwise would not be aware of. If you’re someone who isn’t usually impulsive, that in itself might come out in you soon.

While this moon is on the 1st, it will be holding influence over us for several weeks. There will be a lot of struggles moving forth and you may in your relationships end up really dealing with a lot of pressure. This moon brings forth a lot of changes and transformations that not everyone is going to be ready for. 

Astrology King wrote as follows about some of the energies this moon will bring and influences it has:

Sun quincunx Uranus 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.

Mars square Saturn brings delays, impatience, restrictions, frustration, and inhibition. With a half-degree orb, it is a strong influence on the full moon October 2020 astrology.

The frustrations have been building for a long time because this aspect stays within a three-degree orb from August 15 to October 9. This full moon comes only two days after the climax of Mars square Saturn on September 29.

Mars retrograde from September 9 to November 13 is exacerbating this seething anger. An example of this effect is the ongoing rioting and anger directed at the police and other authorities in the USA.

While it might not feel like it, you need to really hold back some during this moon because it’s going to really hurt you if you push things forth all at once. Sure, you might be irritated about certain things but those things should not be brought up under certain circumstances. When tensions are high you should do your best to relax and calm down before sitting together and really talking things through. 

This moon could really make or break your relationship depending on how things play out for you. It requires you to have a lot of courage and honesty, that’s not going to be easy for any of us. Just because you’re facing delays and things of that nature does not mean you should close yourself off from the person who loves you the most. 

If that love is strong it will still be present after all of this is over. Focusing on growth and moving forward is important right now and you should be taking steps to really find balance in your life. If you’re thinking that things feel a bit more on edge when it comes to your lover, do your best to calm them properly and talk about the positive things you have with one another in your life together.

Just because friction and anger is present does not mean you cannot get through it. Aries is a powerful sign and it really brings out the worst in some of us, but we can all get through this. You are capable of getting through this if your love is strong enough. Take this moon as a test and see where things end up.
