October 31: A Blue Moon on Halloween!
A full moon in Taurus at 7:49 a.m.
The moon is conjunct Uranus Rx at 7:55 a.m.
The sun is opposite Uranus Rx at 8:53 a.m.
October ends as it began, with a full moon. The full moon on October 1 was in fiery, driven Aries, starting the month with an energetic, but combative tone. Halloween’s full moon is in Taurus, a sign ruled by loving and luxurious Venus. This full moon ends the month on a potentially hopeful note, amplifying yearnings for peace, harmony, and collective well-being. This Taurus full moon is auspicious, since the moon is exalted in Taurus, giving it maximum potential to bestow luck, balance, and healing for everyone seeking to channel its power.
At the same time, this potent full moon, brimming with hope and good fortune, is conjunct Uranus, the planet of sudden disruption and inevitable change. This conjunction infuses the full moon with unique symbolism, causing it to shine as a beacon for personal and societal rebirth. We need to reinvent how we connect in our relationships for our highest aspirations of goodwill and abundance to manifest.
Finding our way back to some collective sense of compassion for each other can help unify us around a cause that will benefit everyone. At the very least, this full moon/Uranus conjunction in grounded Taurus reminds us we are entering an unprecedented phase of growth and evolution here on Earth.
While the full moon and Uranus unite in a powerful conjunction, the sun in transformative Scorpio glows in opposition, shining a spotlight on this configuration. The sun represents the theme of the solar season, and in Scorpio, we enter the shadows of the underworld to tap hidden sources of power or understand more profound truths.
It’s no accident that Halloween and other death honoring holidays from many cultures occur in the heart of Scorpio season, where the veil between this world and the next seems uncannily thin. Many of us may be honoring loved ones who’ve passed over this veil and may be calling on the guidance of these wise ancestors to help us rebuild our world. Tonight, our full moon rituals and prayers may hold our dearest wishes, as we cast them into the night and our dreams for a better future.
