October starts off with a bang, with the annual Harvest Moon on Thursday, October 1, and it’s here to kindle our inner fires and maybe start a little drama, too. The October 2020 Harvest Full Moon is the first of two Full Moons that take place in October that will close the month with cosmic intensity, and it falls into the stubborn and zealous sign of Aries.
Everyone will feel the tension and passion of this light luminary, but the Full Harvest Moon of October 2020 will affect each zodiac sign in a unique way. Aries is a cardinal fire sign that rules over our assertive self-interests, and the Full Moon here will be in direct opposition to the Sun in Libra.
This alignment makes the tension of this lunation particularly personal, especially when it comes to the dynamics of our relationships. While the Full Moon’s energy in Aries will motivate you to boldly put your personal goals and independence at the forefront, be sure to temper those competitive streaks with the diplomacy and sense of compromise of Libra season.
Doing so will ensure that we don’t make any Full Moon fumbles that cause unfortunate imbalances in our close relationships later on. Ready to harvest the magic of the Harvest Moon? Discover how the first Full Moon in October 2020 will affect you, based on astrology.
