Aries Full Moon October 9, 2022 – Love and Friendship

Full Moon October 2022 AstrologyThe Full Moon in Aries on October 9, 2022, is opposite Venus. So the Full Moon October 2022 astrology meaning is overcoming relationship tension through self-love and self-acceptance.

The October 2022 Full Moon also brings emotional maturity and patience from the positive influence of Saturn. And a harmonious fixed star provides love and friendship.

Full Moon October 2022 Astrology

The October 9 Full Moon at 16°32′ Aries is opposite Venus. This triggers a longer term influence as the Sun-Venus conjunction is not exact until October 22. The highlighted aspect lines below also show the Full Moon sextile Saturn.

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 peak when the Moon becomes full. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your relationships. You will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

Full Moon in Aries Aspects

Full Moon opposite Venus increases your need for companionship, and you should feel more loving and affectionate. However, it can also create tension in relationships. It may become harder to share warmth and tenderness. Differences between partners can become more evident and problematic.

If dating, you may tend to lower your standards just to be with someone and not feel alone. A shallow or unfulfilling relationship or unrequited love may be the price for such a strong need for close companionship.

If your emotional needs are not fulfilled through human contact, you may be susceptible to substitution through food, alcohol or drugs. Is more self-love and self-acceptance needed before a true soul mate enters your life?

Full Moon sextile Saturn brings stability and security to your personal and home life. Emotional maturity, self-discipline and patience help you understand any relationship or self-worth issues resulting from the Aries Full Moon opposite Venus.

You will be more in touch with your deepest feelings to help share your love and affection. And you will likely feel protective of your partner, family, community, and nation. Relationships will benefit from greater loyalty, commitment, responsibility, dependability and respect.

Full Moon October 2022 is good for attending to shared responsibilities, especially those relating to your home and family. You could respect tradition and ancestors by visiting a nursing home or cemetery.

Difficult Change

Saturn square Uranus is now at its tightest orb since it was last exact in December 2021. It will gradually weaken but may still bring restrictions, natural disasters and political and financial instability. There may also be other severe changes and unexpected setbacks. However, the Full Moon sextile Saturn gives the patience and determination to prevail over hardship.

The Constellations

The Full Moon in October 2022 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. The Signs were only invented as a measuring device. Astrologers continued to use the visible constellation and their stars for astrological interpretation.


Although this full moon is in Constellation Pisces, it most closely aligns with stars in Constellation Andromeda, the Chained Woman.

  • 14♈28 – Delta Piscium, Kuton I
  • 14♈37 – Alpha Andromedae, Alpheratz
  • 16♈24 – Iota Andromedae
  • 16♈32 – Full Moon October 2022
  • 17♈37 – Kappa Andromedae
  • 17♈50 – Epsilon Piscium, Kaht

The Head of Andromeda

Constellation Andromeda bestows purity of thought, virtue, honor and dignity but causes a battle with chimerical fears and a tendency to become easily discouraged. [1] It is a generally favorable constellation denoting that which is honorable and eminent. Badly placed, however, it can portend earthquakes. [2]

Fixed star Alpheratz gives independence, freedom, love, riches, honor and a keen intellect. It is like Jupiter and Venus (contented, happy disposition, honorable, philosophical mind, legal or ecclesiastical preferment, help through women.) [1]

In good aspects, it is significant for a harmonious nature, which brings about a good relationship with other people and makes for popularity. [3]

With Moon: Energetic, persevering, honor, wealth, many good friends and business success. [1] Can count on becoming well-known in public and popular with the masses. [3] (Angelina Jolie, Martina Navratilova)

Full Moon October 2022 Summary

The October 9 Full Moon opposite Venus can create tension in relationships as differences between partners become more evident and problematic. And the Sun opposite Moon already creates inner tension and external pressures that affect intimate relationships.

But the Sun opposite Moon also brings emotional strength and intuition to help overcome relationship challenges. This is aided by the Full Moon October 2022 sextile Saturn, which brings emotional maturity, self-discipline, and patience.

Finally, fixed star Alpheratz ensures that problems with relationships and self-worth can be overcome. It encourages love, harmony, and friendship.

Astrologically, a Full Moon is influenced by the preceding new moon. The September 25 New Moon is promoting spiritual growth. In particular, by finding happiness and satisfaction within yourself without relying on someone or something else.

The influence of the October 9 Full Moon lasts for two weeks up to the October 25 Solar Eclipse. This waning moon phase is good for releasing and letting go, resting, healing, regenerating, contemplating, meditating, decluttering, harvesting, pruning, and cutting hair.

40 thoughts on “Aries Full Moon October 9, 2022 – Love and Friendship

  1. I have moon 14Libra54, but its in my 12th house, so the richness I feel in having my moon here, is not always noticed by others, indeed, because my life has been very challenging, and to the outside world I seem to live a life of constant struggles, rejection, in and out of poverty, often through no fault of my own, yet, good life lessons none the less and I do feel that rich sense of accomplishments for my efforts, regardless of how it looks to others, I dont have many friends but the few I do have I cherish the friendship, and so do they, built on trust and truth, regardless of agreement or not, is a very happy place to be. The square from Pluto kicking my emotional butt in recent years and now Chiron has been opposing for a while, but accepting some excrutiatingly painful realisations at times, was par for course, if I was to be free of the pain, I needed to be honest with myself and choose whether to remain in relationship with those who have treated me badly, yet no longer need to take it personally, perhaps just shifting its priority down a notch or too. Ive been subjected to some abusive relationships at times, yet I needed to take responsibility for allowing it, and understand whether I the relationship would be able to survive accepting that dark side, without it possessing me, which is usually the aim of those who force themselves or their beliefs on others, violating their vulnerability and privacy. Sometimes, yes, sometimes no. Always incredibly upsetting yet equally revealing, any rejection actually setting me free, to choose. So, I most certainly, do.

  2. I might add, it took many years to work through the ill affect abuse had on me, especially my mind, due to being subjected to gaslighting and stonewalling screwing with self perception as it does because that is the intent and of course being “shamed” by those who deemed themselves superior, still puts a dampener on ones spirits,even when you know you have no reason to feel ashamed of yourself, shame has been triggered by another belittling/shaming their prey, especially public shaming, without proof or evidence of the presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond all reasonable doubt… thus can get overlooked denied/ignored through the bargaining phase of grief. Its a truly debilitating emotion and will not go away by ignoring it. Just thought it bared mentioning, because there has been a lot of fearing and shaming tactics used in recent years, and I know I used to think that shame wasn’t present because I had nothing to be a ashamed of, but it is there regardless and can transform helplessness into hopelessness.

    • Hello Debbie,
      I do sympathize,having been subjected to gaslighting myself,for the past 2 1/2yrs by a psychopath neighbor.
      I had threats,which brought up fear,as well as grief and anger.
      I was also made to look the bad guy,police callouts,court,false intervention order made against me,persecuted and no one would listen.
      Frustrating to say the least and i suffered in silence.
      All my pleas fell on deaf ears.

      Fast forward to now….

      What i learnt,it was a blessing in disguise.

      Cause what this neighbor brought up,were all my fears,grief and anguish that needed to be integrated.

      Wasn’t easy,but eventually integrated and got to know and reconnected with my inner child again.

      And this is where the true power lies.

      With emotions that have come up Debbie re:belittling,shaming,fear and whatever else,look back to your childhood and see where that stems from.

      It’s important to remember our childhood and to cast our minds back.

      Unintegrated emotions coming up,are only your inner child trying to get your attention.

      Perpetrators,gaslighters etc are the catalyst of helping you transform and rise above.

      They crossed your path for good reason.

      And will again and again and again,and in different situations etc,if emotions are not reintegrated.

      I thank my neighbor for bringing out hidden emotions,that i needed to integrate.

      You too,could see the silver lining.: )

      I do feel for you and i’ll offer a few suggestions if you don’t mind?

      At this point in time,cut off everyone and focus on yourself and reconnecting with your inner child.

      Practice doing nothing,no tv,no media,no negativity,no distractions.

      Just sit in stillness and observe nature.

      Do this for however long it takes.

      May find you stop and go back and forth.

      Ego mind will want you to do something and play tricks.

      Observe the power play.

      Tip:Don’t give into first impulse.

      Substitution is another bargaining chip.

      What i also find very helpful,is finding someone where you can fully express and open your heart.

      No holds bar,no judgements and fully let go.

      Even at risk of offending.

      For me,i have used email to one person and texted to two others and fully let go.

      And yeah,i’m only touching base a little here on the above.

      But time out is in order and do nothing.

      If you ever need a hand or an ear,
      someone to feel safe with and to fully express,
      touch base and get in contact.

      That is,if you have no one else and or no other means.

      Either way,best of luck and best wishes.


      • Ps.For those that have faith in God and adhere to the truths in the bible,

        i am thinking of offering an confessional service of sorts,

        clearing,full creative no holds bar expression,

        a clear channel to source,God,through me.

        By way of a mobile number without sim,
        no longer in use,and deactivated email,no longer in use.

        People would still think they are communicating to me,
        despite mobile and email no longer in use,nor getting a reply.

        I wouldn’t say otherwise.

        This is key,

        for the faithful.

        • Pss.That is one end of the spectrum.

          A service of ignorance(no replies)

          but the attendee thinks there is a human at the other end.

          Irks,but works a treat.
          Option number 2,in contact with a human.

          Transference and projection.

          Bringing up the shadow(inner child)

          Attendee notices they don’t feel like themselves anymore.

          What transpires next,is the attendees deceased spirits make contact.

          Attendee then slows communication,then nothing.


          Laozi-When the pupil is ready,the teacher will come.

          Socrates-You can’t teach anyone anything,you can only make them think.

          • Yes Nomadic Spirit, I have spent many years on that philosophical quest, about 50 to be honest, and I continue to learn more and more, every day, more depth and bredth than altogether new, but then I do have a 9th house Sun & Merc, so the quest was always going to be the light of my life. Of course, our individual philosophy is just that, no 2 are the same, but the crux & its principle values are often similar, but once we have gleaned all we can from our personal life’s lessons, we are able to offer wisdom, insight & even perhaps a little foresight to others, in living as an example of what we now believe to be true, especially where we can relate or empathise a little to their present life lesson, having practiced and experienced similar, there is always some truth in it to be digested and revealed, but yes too much information and talking at rather than with people doesnt leave enough time or space for digestion, which may not make sense to others, but then my Sun & Merc are in Cancer, the philosophy of Home, Family, nourishment and the Maternal are the angle, my personal philosophy stems from. So thank you for your offering, a little acknowledgement and empathy are a always helpful on the journey we lay before ourselves at times.

  3. One of the earliest records of “Kumbaya” in the American Folklife Center archive is in a manuscript sent to Robert Winslow Gordon, the Archive’s founder, in 1927

    “The song is identified as “Come By Here.” The singer is identified only as H. Wylie. The place is not identified at all, but during this period Gordon was living in Darien, Georgia, and rarely collected more than a few hours from there. The cylinder is numbered A389 and “Georgia 156.” The cylinder is undated, but all the dated items in Gordon’s numbering system from A290 to A434 are from April, 1926; the last precisely dated cylinder before “Come By Here” is dated April 15, and the first after it is dated May 3, so from the written evidence it appears the song was recorded within that two-week period.”

  4. Nice work, Astro King. Also interesting reading the comments above.
    This full moon touches on themes that are recurring during 2022. In these instances, attention to the details and holding true to the facts in the face of emotional manipulation, done by the self to the self, or by others to you (which may be a reflection of how you feel about yourself anyway).
    For the people posting above, this includes gaslighting and having others disrespect boundaries (physical or emotional). I would add that beware the drunk, the thief, the drug addict who asks to be given another chance. Say “no” or at least instate tight caveats before allowing the person or situation back into your life.
    For those with the natal Sun or other personal planets around the placement of the full moon, you’d be wise to check the details, ask the right questions and don’t wing it in any matters or your ‘luck’ will run dry. You will be cheated, you will buy a dud or, if are being sneaky about something or kidding/deluding yourself, it will come to a head at this full moon and bite you! Listen to constructive criticisms or perhaps seek advice in all matters before jumping in.

  5. The Full Moon in Aries on October 9, 2022, is opposite Venus. So ….self love and self-acceptance.

    yes, i have accepted that im responsible for a work of art mirroring the Pandemic. In a very real context, working with Double Entry Booking (DEB) has allowed me the knowledge to communicate the financial version of the Holy Grail.

    Asset, Liability and Sweeeeet Equity. Asset, obviously found right here at astrologyking. Liability, thats Covid and various medical and media scampering around. Equity, thats delicate, subject to Neptune: the sponge you use in making a piece of art?

  6. Excerpt:Luke 12:1-3

    “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops.”

    Excerpt:1 Corinthians 5:6-8

    “Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed. Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”

  8. Believing in the Triune God


    Joshua 2:18-20 Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father’s household, home unto thee. 19 And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head, and we will be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him. 20 And if thou utter this our business, then we will be quit of thine oath which thou hast made us to swear.

    1 Peter 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
