LOOK DEEP INTO MY EYES
Aries Full Moon Horoscope | October 5
We hope with the current goings on that autumn is treating you well so far. Soon it'll be trick or treating and monster mashing, but let's stick with our 12-degree 43-minutes Aries full Moon vibes, to see what October's horoscope has in sight for each sun sign.
As far as Sabian Symbol's go, we round up to the next degree, though for the archetypal flavor of the full Moon as reaper-harvester, I like to address the mature state of the exact degree on which the Moon falls:
If you know your Moon sign, all the better to cross-reference it, for optimal interaction with how you can balance the powers-that-be. I've always told any authority attempting control that "I answer to a higher power." This is often confusing enough to at least receive reprieve and return to the drawing board.
You want your truth, right? Now's the time to call it up, as we descend further into your soul's evolution. Aries rules the head, so it's a time for looking deeply into your soul's eyes, they're calling you to further its intention for the benefit of all.
God and goddess speed! :)
Gemini, with the Sun and Mercury conjunct in Libra, you can capitalize on this trine and really get your message across to the masses. Whether it's on a social media level or an organized family gathering, your words hit the mark, so please choose them carefully. Lest your brain hit the gossip train, I'd even take on a vocal exercise or too, to let some of the excess energy out in a playful way. Try to visualize how your words land into the atmosphere and what effect you want to create with them.
Cancers have the opportunity to get all those little rascally details finished up. Whatever has been dragging, nagging, snagging at your proverbial behind can now be taken care of to lighten the load for the next Moon phase. Your tide is high with the practical life, and do try not to listen to your reactive mind, saying all the blah-blah bullshit to keep you down. Nope, plough through the wake and harvest those last bits of duty, for clear sailing… *salutes*
_______Leo! By porphyry house calculations, you have your sign sitting opposite the first house, so it's time to lay on the lovin' to your significant other. If you're single, find that sigil magic (the good kind, of course) statement and ritualize it into reality. So juicy! It's a special period to build the life you always wanted to live. Seeing it through Other (it doesn't necessarily have to be a love interest, just keep it one-on-one, as in that one great novel) gives quality time to pursue the dream.
Virgo is quite simply on the precipice of ending any relationship illusions that are ongoing in life. Currently you have Mars conjunct Venus in your sign opposing Neptune in Pisces. This means you could have some personal revelations about the balancing of masculine and feminine energies and how they play out inside of you. It's a great time to reflect this polarity and allow truths to arise that have been laid dormant too long by the shadow. Let 'em pop!
This October full Moon, we can let the deeper thoughts fly in our relationships, provided we remember Libran diplomacy, sitting across from Aries, with its grace and tact always on tap. It's a prime op to draught forward the stuff we've been all co-dependent about and relieve a little stress from our inner pressure cooker. By allowing a tempered release of any authentic feelings that we've been holding back, there'll be less potential poison in the depths of our energy well. We want to give our best to ourselves and others, not another's best; someone else is already doing that!
I invite all signs to embrace the Aries archetype and for us to speak our will, and if we don't speak it then write, dance, work, lead, love or whisper it into our lives. The effort we make reaps equal returns for giving back and getting back. So the love wheel rolls…
This is a time for a literal balancing act, Libra Sun Aries full Moon. Uranus will communicate plenty of surprises to us, some not so subtle and for others we need to pay attention through strict and continuous self-examination.
The Aries/Libra axis is one of the more interesting ones because their rulers, Mars and Venus respectively, are now conjunct in Virgo. Down and dirty work on our inner worldview, as it relates to the masculine and feminine, gives us pause and invites a weirdly peaceful balance that we're not accustomed to. I for one am going to try not to fuck it up out of habit, ha! Ride the wave my lovelies, this full Moon is a teacher of self-will and pure love.

Bruja/o/x culture (brujería), stem from an ancient set of mystical beliefs and practices that have been passed down through generations in Latin America. It has its roots in the indigenous spiritual traditions of the region, as well as elements from African and European cultures and today’s Instagram hashtags #bruja and # brujería have over 2M posts combined.
As other magical practices, brujería orbits honoring spirits and deities, divination, nurturing specific traditional healing methods such as curanderismo, and rituals to protect oneself from negative energy. Get yer charms out!
In Latin American countries like Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Cuba, Colombia, and Brazil it is still a vibrant part of daily life for many people, though there are some variations depending on location. The original practice was brought over by Spanish conquistadors during their colonization of the Americas, and the stories say the cobblestone streets were “paved in slave bones”—see a pattern of repressed magic much? Seems everywhere we turn there’s a need to rise up from the lid put on us for being natural… No longer, though. You watch! This next 20 years will have diverse magical cultures openly practicing without fear, the time is nigh 😊🌿☽🌕☾
Now evolved into something unique to each region, brujería remains a source of immense pride for those who practice this tradition, which continues to hold strong despite attempts to marginalize or even eradicate it

Are you looking for insight into your archetypal planetary vibes? Do you want to know what the stars have in store for you in May of 2023? We Spirit Nesters can help you to gain insight into the events going on. With Pluto’s ingress to Aquarius, the upcoming trends vibrate with Uranian energy, so expect the unexpected! From love and romance to career and financials, May prepares us for individual and collective freedom or to take steps towards clarity and avoiding potential pitfalls. Read on to get into the flow of your elements and how each sign expresses itself in what's coming up!
Astrological Movements: In May, we see the Sun in Taurus and Mercury in Gemini, which will inspires an increase in mental acuity with a skosh of practicality. This is a sweet, sweet time for learning new skills or tackling projects that require careful attention to detail. However, it's also important to be aware of potential communication issues that may arise due to this pairing. You'll want to think carefully before fully speaking your mind during this month! This isn’t to say withhold info, but just be prepared to take the repercussions if you do, from both sides of the coin…
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) can find themselves feeling energetically active during this month as they take on new challenges with enthusiasm and learn through friction, that’s what squares do, and there’s potentially enormous power in that, though not always 100% comfortable. We all know what kind of magic happens outside that zone, though, yes?
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo Capricorn) can expect stability and security thanks to the positive energy flowing through their world right now, but it’s super important that you know in which house Aquarius sits, because that security can be going through do-over renos, you feel me? And we’re not just talking light stucco here, we’re talking a new roof level of shift, lol.
Air signs (Gemini Libra Aquarius) can prepare themselves for exciting conversations as creative ideas come into play – but don't forget that words have power too and can anchor you to stuff that you might not have anticipated! The intellect is in full gear and, depending on where your moon sits, you could be having emotional epiphanies in May that will set stuff free that you might have been holding onto for too long.
Water signs (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) can experience heightened emotions during this period which could lead to solidified feelings emerging that you FINALLY understand, so make sure you take time out for yourself to feel them all the way through, up from the heart center and like a pinball machine bounce them around until their out on paper or in song or other creative force. Emotional inventory always feels correct and May has the vibes to take you through with the strength of an ox 😉
