Tonight, the second full moon in the month of October will rise on Halloween night.
The actual full moon happened at 10:49 a.m. EST today in the earthy sign of Taurus, the sign it’s exalted in.
I love a full moon because to me, it’s the height of magical power. There’s so much magic in the air that you barely even have to do anything. You just have to sit back and watch it unfold.
This one is extra special and juicy to me for a few reasons. One, it’s on Halloween. Two, it’s in Taurus, and I love a big, earthy full moon. Third, it’s a blue moon, meaning its the second full moon in a calendar month. And last, and possibly most significant, it’s pretty much directly conjunct Uranus, the planet that moved into Taurus in early 2019.
Uranus is all about freedom, independence and sudden changes. With that on top of the emotional moon, there’s a strong possibility that feelings could be unpredictable. You may feel restless with sudden bursts of energy. You might pace around. But on a larger scale, with the potent power of the full moon, it could also mean big and sudden changes in general.
I pulled the Death card the other day. This card doesn’t mean actual death, despite its name. It means change is coming, whether we try to fight it or not.
Even as a tarot reader, I definitely don’t like getting this card. But I think it’s a good metaphor for this full moon. With the moon conjunct Uranus, change is certain. Time to let go of what is no longer serving us and embrace what’s to come, even if the path forward isn’t pretty.
On a lighter note, I hope everyone reading this has a wonderful, safe and happy Halloween! I am dressing up as Maleficent this year and I can’t wait to do my makeup. I’ll post a photo to Instagram.
