A full moon occurs when the Sun is opposite the Moon. This highlights opposing forces or polarities in your life such as your work versus home, or what you need versus what you want. Inner tension and external pressures can lead to personal conflict and crises that drain your energy. Your home, family and intimate relationships comes into sharper focus following a full moon.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. Use you 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.

A full moon has a relationship to the previous new moon. Your October 8 new moon goals can now be fine-tuned or completed, it is harvest time. You can make emotional adjustments in response to those new goals. Full moon October 2018 lasts for two weeks up to the November 7 new moon.

Challenging Aspects

Venus opposite Uranus signals change or tension in your love life. If single, a new romance would be exciting, surprising, unusual or kinky. But it could also be risky, unstable and brief. Internet dating suits this aspect and you could find someone from a very different background or culture than your own. If you have a partner, an unexpected event, flirting, an affair or sexual experimentation may lead to drama or separation.

Whatever your situation, if love is not an option then change and excitement can manifest in another area of life. Financial windfalls are possible but you should be extra careful with money. Avoid a tendency to gamble or invest in get rich quick schemes. Find stimulation some other way through entertainment, especially on the internet.

Moon conjunct Uranus brings impulsive reactions. Sudden events may result in relationship upsets, family disputes, or a major change in an intimate relationship. Some eccentric or weird actions may not turn out so well, but one or two may prove extremely valuable. At times you may feel isolated or detached from your loved ones.

Moon opposite Venus increases your need for love and affection regardless of the consequences. If single, loneliness could cause you to lower your standards just to be with someone. If you have a partner, different moods or needs may expose simmering tensions. Whatever your relationship status, if your emotional needs are not fulfilled through human contact, you may be tempted to substitute with sugar, drugs, alcohol or shopping.

Helpful Aspects

Venus sextile Saturn increases your need for companionship. If single, it increases the likelihood of finding true love with someone who is also interested in long-term commitment. A teacher-student type relationship is possible, or there may be a marked age difference. If you have a partner, any unexpected change or kinkiness in the bedroom is now less likely to cause tension or separation.

Being dutiful about making your lover happy and content will bring reassurance and commitment. A practical and common sense approach will help fix any recent difficulties. There should be a mutual understanding and acknowledgement if a relationship has run its course. This aspect helps you save money and be more conservative with investments. It favors long-term investments in blue chip stocks, real estate or works of art.

Moon trine Saturn gives the patience and emotional strength to handle sensitive or difficult relationship issues. Others may come to you for advice on a personal issue or just for a shoulder to cry on. Traditional values and old habits can bring solutions to new problems. You can rely on strong instincts and common sense to make important decisions about your home, family and relationships.

Full Moon October 2018 Fixed Stars

  • 00 ♉ 31 – Uranus
  • 00 ♉ 40 – Mirach
  • 01 ♉ 13 – Full Moon
  • 01 ♉ 47 – Mira

Fixed Star Mirach is on the side of the Chained Woman, Andromeda Constellation. Robson said it gives love, beauty, brilliance, devotion, forgiveness, kindness, renown, love of home and good fortune in marriage. [1] Ebertin adds cheerfulness, happiness, love of company, many interests, altruism, and a tendency to inspiration and medium-ship as a base for artistic creation. [2] But according to Robson, the Moon and Uranus do not go so well with this star:

Moon conjunct Mirach: Trouble with opposite sex owing to indiscretions, bad for domestic affairs, honor through martial matters.

Uranus conjunct Mirach: Unbalanced mind, may commit crime in insanity, occult interests, continual disappointments, bad for domestic affairs, peculiar or violent death. (Charles Manson 0°51′)

Fixed Star Mira is in the Tail of the Whale, Cetus Constellation. Ebertin said that if connected well and with a well-placed Saturn, and otherwise well aligned, it means prudence, perseverance, versatility, progressive spirit and endurance in solving difficult problems. But with unhelpful connections will bring as results failures, fiascos and enmity. When linked with the Moon, melancholy will then appear. [2]

  1. This full moon is conjunct my sun so I hope it’s about damn time for me to get lucky and find true love.

    • Well this full moon has been extremely unhelpful. Yesterday transit Jupiter trined my MC and conjuncted my 5th house Vertex and transit Venus sextiled my Jupiter. Those are some pretty good transits for luck if I do say so myself, but nope not a darn thing! Today’s full moon didn’t really affect me either despite being exactly on my natal sun!

  2. I have one question: Uranus was castrated by his son Saturn, and from the blood that fell into the sea, Venus was born. How can a confrontation between a castrated father and his daughter lead to a sexual encounter?

  3. Hi Jamie, Following the reading of your post I am wondering how the moon conjunct uranus will play for me if I have Vesta at 1.44 Leo, Orcus 1.30 and natal lunar post eclipse at 0.16 Leo and my sun is at 4.58 Virgo … would the wide trine with my sun help to mitigate the aspect of Uranus to this asteroids and post lunar eclipse?
    As far as I know Orcus was a god of the underworld punisher of broken oaths and Vesta is the godness of devotion both are conjunct my rising sign in Leo 5.48 …Am I passionately devoted to hold a candle against broken oaths or contracts? What can Uranus from Taurus disrupt or change that can bring unexpected love?
    On the other hand Uranus will also make an aspect to my Moon at 2.32 Aries so maybe this could be more linked to the unexpected love?
    I guess that in relationships the promise of true and forever and ever is a difficult oath to keep and when the oath is part of the deal Orus is involved … so maybe having Vesta (devotion) and Orcus (oaths and contracts) so close to my rising sign means that people perceive me as devoted to keep promises and Uranus transiting my 10th house and a sign such as Taurus means that broken promises related to love or finance are at play?
    To me it sounds like if there was some important contract, promise or oaths surrounding my birth …funny enough Vesta, as far I found, rules small and confined places and at birth I spent some time in an incubator…
    Any way I have the feeling that this moon will have an impact on me but yet reading your post I am not completely sure how it can work out !

    • Don’t make it so complicated. The Sun is in Scorpio and the moon is in Taurus and it’s happening at 1 degree of both those signs. Does the sun and/or moon aspect any PERSONAL planets rather than asteroids? Sure Vesta is an important asteroid, but usually full and new moons affect personal planets more outwardly so than transits to asteroids.

  4. Hi Jaime, I know you don’t use a “house system” for your astrological work, however is there a house system that is some what close to how you make your calculations? Just curious, Thanks

  5. will this moon be felt by everyone or just people that have natal planets near 1 degree ?

    • Everyone feels new and fulls moons to a certain degree. But how it affects you depends on aspects iot makes to your chart. And yes, if you have a planet within one degree of the moon phase you will feel it stronger than other people.

      • Oh it’ll be exactly sextiling my sun at 1° in the 10th (moon in 8th, sun in 2nd)….. something will most definitely be going on at work!! $$$?

  6. Radix Saturn 28° Cancer…conjunct to North Node in Leo, opposite to South Node in Aquarius, and squared to all the others…
    Does it mean a radical change or a Karmic turning point? Thanks for your attention. Answers will be appreciated.

    • Hi Esa. New meeting could easily result in a long term relationship if you find the right person. It may depend on your own transits.
