Relationship dynamics are under the spotlight during October’s full blood moon in Aries. Taking place on October 9 at 4:55 p.m., ET, this full moon mingles with the sensitive asteroid Chiron, known as the “wounded healer.” Chiron can represent some of our deepest pains, wounds, and triggers that are embedded in our psychology, but it also marks where we hold the potential to heal and evolve.

The moon and Chiron will both be in Aries during the upcoming full blood moon, sitting across the sky from the sun and Venus, both in Libra. Venus’ involvement with this full moon amplifies the themes of relationships, harmony and our desire to recalibrate. The Aries-Libra axis can be boiled down to “me versus we,” with Aries never being afraid to advocate for its own needs while Libra reminds Aries of the power of diplomacy and teamwork. This energy may reflect an internal battle between brashness and people-pleasing tendencies. So the challenge of this full blood moon in Aries is to find balance without compromising your needs.

With this full blood moon in Aries, we're ready to release old patterns and recommit to healthier dynamics.

Sensitivity is in the air during this, and it’s easy to feel triggered under these moonbeams. Remember that raw and honest reflection of what surfaces can bring about healing. This requires courage, which is naturally embedded in the energy of the moon in Aries. The sun and moon will also be forming supportive angles with Mars in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius, lending the dedication and fearlessness required to confront any shadows that have been lingering in our psyche or relationship patterns. With this full blood moon in Aries, we're ready to release old patterns and recommit to healthier dynamics; we’re creating space to begin again and venture down a more sustainable path in our partnerships.

Read on for your rising, sun and moon signs for more insight on how this full moon will activate your birth chart.

What the full blood moon in Aries has in store for your sign


Vulnerability is on the menu for you, as the full moon in Aries lights up your first house of identity, sense of self, and your personal psychology. The moon shines a light on your inner world and experiences. As the moon mingles with wounded healer Chiron, you may feel called to share some of your story you’ve never shared with others before to help lessen the power they hold over you.

If you’ve been feeling triggered in any of your current relationships—romantic, platonic, or otherwise—now is the time to speak your truth. Releasing what you’ve been holding inside will bring a renewed sense of freedom.

Your full moon self-care practice: Write a letter to yourself. Reflect on what you’ve been through in your life and your relationships: How have these experiences informed who you are today? Express gratitude for how far you’ve come and where you hope to be in the future.


You may experience some unexpected triggers under this full moon as it activates your 12th house of closure, solitude, self-defeating behaviors and spirituality. A song in the supermarket, a phrase on TV—even the most innocuous and random of events can ignite something that’s been buried within your subconscious. Your mind and memories are bringing this to your attention so that you can process, integrate, and experience a deeper level of healing.

Closure oftentimes requires solitude and rest. If you’re moving through the end of something—whether it be a relationship or project—honor that process. Take the time you need.

Your full moon self-care practice: Prioritize some meditation time. And remember that meditation can take many forms, whether that's playing music, guided meditation, cooking, or anything else that lights up your soul and allows you to sink into the flow of your subconscious. Invite in what’s stirring beneath the surface.


You’re thinking deeper about the give and take within your friendships and social circles with the full moon moving through your 11th house of community, friendship, and hopes and dreams. Drama and confrontations with friends and colleagues could unravel. Perhaps you’re seeing someone's true intentions and recognizing your needs aren’t being met in this relationship.

On the other hand, you may be celebrating a milestone—perhaps you’re closer than ever to achieving a goal or dream. Or, someone in your network reaches out with help to bring your wishes closer to reality. Overall, you’re reviewing which friendships feel balanced and which leave you depleted of energy.

Your full moon self-care practice: Practice asking for what you need within your friendships. If you can’t speak up for yourself, no one else will.


Your public and private worlds collide when the full moon moves through your 10th house of reputation, career, and legacy. Family matters or private matters may be revealed and discussed on a more public stage. This is a powerful time to address what’s been stewing within you.

You may also be up for some professional recognition, whether that's marking the milestone of a promotion or completion of a big project. The full blood moon in Aries could also signal a period when you’re reflecting deeper on your career and the way it intersects with your legacy. Do you feel fulfilled? Is this what you want to be remembered for? A career or job change could be on the horizon.

Your full moon self-care practice: It’s time to pause and embody any recent or upcoming milestones. Sink into the feeling of gratitude for this experience. Let it flow from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet. Pause and be present with this feeling, you deserve it.


You’re ready to share your spark and wisdom with the world when the full moon moves through your ninth house of broadcasting, travel, higher education, and philosophy. News or information that arrives under this full blood moon in Aries could feel life-changing.

If you’ve been honing or developing a skill, you may feel ready to share your expertise at a conference, by hosting an online event, or turning in a major project or thesis. You’re also craving adventure and risk and are eager to soak up some new life experiences to expand your horizons and understanding of the world.

Your full moon self-care practice: Use your voice and leave the imposter syndrome at the door. Others are waiting to hear about your specific story or expertise; your words and experience may be just what someone else needs to hear.


You’re ready to settle some debts—both financial and emotional—as the full blood moon in Aries lights up your eighth house of shared resources, your psyche, fears, anxieties, and vulnerability. This is an emotionally charged lunation that could coincide with you paying off a major bill, signing a contract, or extending forgiveness.

Get ready to process some of the dynamics and coping mechanisms that are no longer working for you. You’re ready to move forward in a new way, and sitting with your past and extending self-acceptance can be more healing than you know.

Your full moon self-care practice: Do a physical purge—closet, junk drawer, refrigerator—whatever. As you’re sorting through the items that you’re ready to release, visualize them as patterns and behaviors that no longer serve you. Once you remove them, you’re removing them on the astral plane, too.


How does codependency show up in your life, Libra? This full moon lands in your seventh house of one-on-one relationships and contracts. If you’re finding you’ve lost part of yourself in a relationship pattern, it’s time to reclaim some of your individuality. Where have you kept quiet to keep the peace? Where have you been sacrificing your needs and opting out of advocating for yourself? This could mark a healing conversation in one of your relationships and a symbolic rebalancing of the scales. It also signals a period of collaboration; it could coincide with signing a contract or beginning to work with someone new.

Your full moon self-care practice: What conversations have you been avoiding? Your heart and soul will benefit from engaging in those topics. Allow yourself to go there and address any issues that have been bubbling beneath the surface.


Your health and daily routine matter, and you may be feeling a little out of whack as the full blood moon in Aries moves through your sixth house of daily habits, health and conflict. For example, if you’ve been sorting through drama with coworkers, this full moon may highlight the issue for one final showdown. Or, if you’ve been overextending yourself and not listening to your body’s needs, it may catch up with you under this full moon. Release any habits that don't serve you and refocus your attention to your health.

Your full moon self-care practice: As you wash your face and body in the morning, visualize yourself washing off other people’s energy and expectations. Commit to this tiny visualization practice every day to feel a noticeable shift.


Celebration is in order under the full moon as it lights up your fifth house of joy, romance, children, creativity, and pleasure. If you’ve been working on a creative project or investing time in a new hobby, you may simply be basking in the bliss it’s brought you. This could mark a return to your inner child—a remembering of the joy you once found in simplicity.

This is a lucky section of the birth chart that’s associated with indulgence and pleasure, so don’t be afraid to spoil yourself. For those curious about love, this could be a beautiful time to reignite a spark within your love life or experience a shift in your dating life.

Your full moon self-care practice: What sparks passion within you? A hobby, writing, creating art, cooking—whatever it may be, prioritize spending your time with an activity that reconnects you with joy for joy’s sake. There are no expectations or deadlines—just joy.


Your sense of security is under the spotlight as the full moon activates your fourth house of home, family, and property. You may be moving, renovating, finding new roommates, or redecorating your living space.

On a more emotional level, you may find yourself wading through the psychological waters of your family’s ancestry and generational patterns. How do they impact the way you show up in the world? What stories and patterns are you ready to release? A milestone within the family may also be taking place; perhaps you’re welcoming a new member of the family or saying goodbye to someone.

Your full moon self-care practice: If you’re struggling with a family member and have the access and privilege to a photo album, find their baby picture, if possible. Visualize their inner child. What did they go through? Where may they be stuck? Send them the compassion and grace that you deserve.


You’re busier than ever and it’s making you rethink your priorities as the full moon moves through your third house of communication, information, learning, siblings, and your local neighborhood. You may be hopping from one event to the next or spending more time with siblings or extended family members. You’re remembering your time is precious and are more thoughtful about how you choose to spend it. Information or news that comes through under this full moon may bring a shift in perspective. If you’ve been honing a new skill, you may reach an exciting milestone.

Your full moon self-care practice: Reading and writing will be key to unlocking new layers of your mind and mental world. Commit to reading a book you’ve had on your nightstand for ages or pick up a daily journaling practice.


Money, value and security are all top of mind when the full moon activates your second house of resources, income and self-worth. This type of activation could coincide with a raise, promotion, or influx of cash. At the same time, it could also signal the decision to spend some of your cash and make an investment on a big purchase. There is a desire to reconnect with our budget and check in our sense of financial security and safety. Do we have a financial plan for the future? This may also be a time where we are tasked with expressing and sticking with our values. You may feel called to assert your opinions and make them known.

Your full moon self-care practice: Book a massage, a Reiki treatment, or a facial in the name of self care. If that's not in your budget, ask a friend or a roommate for a massage. Your body deserves some major R&R.
