Full Moon Meaning

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your 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.

Full Moon Aspect

Full moon opposite Mars gives a strong urge to have your passionate desires fulfilled. But moodiness, impulsiveness, and anger can get in the way of your goals. There is a risk of minor irritations turning into arguments, abuse, or conflict that hurts yourself or others.

To avoid hostilities you can channel your energy toward hard work and competition. This is a good time to fight for a just cause or defend the vulnerable. If you are in danger, this full moon may trigger a fight or flight response and an opportunity to leave a dangerous relationship or environment.

Full moon square Pluto can lead to compulsive and destructive behavior as deeply buried feelings are exposed. Emotional power struggles are possible and may become quite ruthless. Jealousy, manipulation, guilt-tripping, bullying, sexual abuse, or domestic violence may be involved.

Although difficult to control, conscious awareness of such intense emotions or reactions can be healing, with opportunities to transform and evolve. This is a good time to eliminate bigotry, racism, fears and phobias, addiction, sexual problems, and destructive relationships.

Mars square Pluto gives an intense desire to gain power and control, and compete to win. But ruthlessness, jealousy, or underhand tactics will lead to power struggles and confrontations. Still, it is not wise to suppress your strong urge to succeed. Internalizing this potent energy could result in aggression from others. Someone may try to dominate you or challenge your ego or position at work.

So to avoid being a victim, it is better to strive for success but do so in a careful way. Also, try not to be overly assertive or make others feel threatened. This especially applies to superiors or those in a position of authority. This is not the time to be starting fights and making enemies.

Full Moon October 2021 Fixed Star

Full Moon October 2021 is in the Sign of Aries. But as the star map below shows, it is actually in the Constellation of Pisces. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago.

Full Moon October 2021 [Stellarium]

The full moon at 27°26′ Aries most closely aligns with Eta Piscium, Alpherg, at 27°07′ Aries. It is the only star in constellation Piscies that is used in astrology.

Fixed star Alpherg gives preparedness, steadiness, determination and final success. It is of the nature of Saturn and Jupiter (dignified, pious, conservative, acquisitive, retentive). [1] It rules the pineal gland and is related to spiritual development. [2]

This is a star of mysteries Those with it well placed have ready access to, and understanding of, what the Church loves to call ‘The Mysteries’. Let those who have Alpherg poorly aspected beware of the Genie that may emerge if they uncork it by mere dabbling for occult kicks. Nothing that happens with Saturn-Jupiter conjunction is on a small scale, neither enlightening revelation nor pathological obsession with the past. [3]

Full Moon October 2021 Summary

The major influence of the October 20 full moon is Mars square Pluto. This is a challenging aspect that creates a very competitive environment. It can make you intense in your desire to succeed to the extent of becoming ruthless and aggressive.

Fixed star Alpherg is like the most positive manifestation of Mars square Pluto. It gives preparedness, steadiness, determination, and final success. It also gives the spiritual development to transform the intense energy of Mars square Pluto into determination and perseverance to achieve your most passionate desires.

That new moon was conjunct Mars and continues to bring energy, passion and initiative, but also anger, violence and revenge. The effects of the October 20 full moon lasts for two weeks up to the November 4 new moon.

  1. Karmic release of the T-square is Sign of Cancer, domain of the Sly Stone boxer. So duck and weave here, fast reflexes, hands up to protect the face, rope-a-dope too, if your crafty trainer has the pull to design the ring. Mohammed Ali with Sun at 17 January, known as The Champ, and astrological inspiration behind Jake Edwards’ radio program of the same name. Heavyweight boxing was was the epitome of sports in the 1968-78 era, as Joe Frazier and George Foreman also natal decan 3 Capricorns. The Champ in radio humour used the same recipe for laughs. See? You want to study astrology and get good, hot gigs designing election outcomes, media advertising, jokes, coffee and … out the nose it goes. Then one day Saturn and Pluto show up together wearing dark suits and 22 oz Everlast gloves You’ve designed a plan to last 588 years and Its already taken a good Jack Dempsey thrashing.

    • You are loved. You are supported. You are worthy. You are safe. You are alive for a reason. The world needs you.

      • thank you. between personal issues/heartbreak and the wold situation i am losing the will to live. i am being so battered and hopeless. after a lifetime of similar.

        • Sabelmouse… Bless your heart💛 I too have been experiencing some deep despair, though got an angelic message “There is always tomorrow”, and hope was the last thing to float out of Pandora’s Box…
          Please take courage, and don’t give up. This challenging Pluto cycle has been about healing and emergence from the chrysalis in so many ways… and now our powerful little friend (Pluto) is in direct motion again.
          It’s been retrograding back n forth on my natal Jupiter for what seems like forever now, and I am no stranger to the Phoenix energies.
          We are all caught in the great web of transformation… let love be your guide 💛

          • thank you !
            well, i’ve got some saturn/venus/7th house stuff as well, and chiron. why it’s so incredibly superbad this last week i’m not sure. neptune on top of my merc? i’ve gone through a lot the last few years, and i have a lot of old trauma to deal with.
            but this is one of the worst times ever. i can barely muster the will to live and if i were not afraid of ending in a coma/disabled i would kill myself.
            usually i can muster some hope and who knows, tomorrow. i’ll have venus trine ac, then again i’ve venus in 5th transit, this whole thing started with venus square pluto. i am getting scared of anything to do with venus. i’ve chiron in 7, love/relationships is my worst pain. despite therapy ectr. i am 61 and still/again reliving abandonment and such from infancy. it’s incredible.
            gave up on it all, met someone, thought i had another chance, feel like i’ve got a knife in my heart. + the whole world situation.
            i feel like i will go crazy/explode if this goes on.

            • As someone who was left nurturing an emptiness my entire life due to childhood ambandonment. I want to encourage you to go to your childhood and stay there. The keys to healing your life are there, in those early years. All of the partners you get involved with will be built on top of an already lacking childhood. Nothing you build will stand if the foundation underneath is weak and unstable. Do this for yourself. Stop running and just heal. You don’t have to end your life. You need to heal yourself. If you’re still alive then you can handle the pain. It’s never too late. I have no idea how I’m still alive either. But your childhood caregivers may have abandoned you, but you can’t abandon YOU as well. You have to STAY with yourself. You have to heal that child you were. The time is now. There are many self help books about abandonment to get you started…and from there, you rebuild. Good luck.

  2. @jay yeah, i’ve been tying that. this last week mirrors a/several childhood situation/s remarkably.
    last night a shift happened, and i’ve gone from suicidal to just very sad.
    getting more perspective on that relationship i am in.
    the thing is that i’ve been through many such phases and there has been tremendous improvement over the years yet these things come back again and again and with such overwhelming intensity. like a tidal wave, literally.

  3. My Father, deceased 2019. Sun and Venus at 27Aries.

    He was The Champ.

    My Mom was a talent. She wad no Tramp. She sailed around the world, bought real estate, and worked all shifts at the hospital, before it was a thing. She won first prize at the fair for her pattern crochet.

  4. JAMIE…look up Muhammad Ali of Egypt. You realize astrology is prophesizing the future, right? So, if you’re predicting negativity and drama, trauma, conflict, violence, and wars, then people come along and believe that, you do know you’re planting seeds of creation by doing so, right? These are all just cycles of history replaying endlessly, so don’t you think it’s your job to transform these energies and experiences into harmonious endings that don’t cause extreme harm? Because every single thing can be perceived differently, and it doesn’t have to be doom and gloom. Does creation happen before or after the thought? Did anyone ever stop to think that maybe Mars isn’t about war, but rather, is the one who has the courage to enter the war zone and put things back into order? How about Saturn helping us all in career, and keeping us all safe with enough to eat and enough clean water for all. Why this big nasty monster that then becomes real, and poverty gets worse and worse, and what you gonna do? Blame the planets again? If you want the health and happiness you deserve, you need to understand that it’s you and you alone whom creates your reality. Are you creating poison? Sending love and light to you Jamie
