Special Comment: Exciting Full Moon Coming
Usually astrologers tell you about the Full Moon right before it happens, but we’re here with a little early news. Taking place in Aries, coming up on Oct. 16, the Full Moon is conjunct Eris. It’s an amazingly close conjunction, just a sixth of a degree. Uranus, of course, is right there, less than a degree from the Moon. So this is THE Full Moon of the Uranus-Eris conjunction at its peak of intensity. If I were looking at this chart in 50 years, I would say that must have been an interesting week and dig into the New York Times archives and see what was going on. I’m just as curious today. From a personal standpoint, think of this event as a metaphysical wave that you can ride. Now is the time to get your surfboard in the water.

If Your Birthday is Oct. 4
(The Day of the Incorrigibles) | Get Your Birthday Reading
The Moon trine Chiron on your birthday is an invitation to emotional healing and relating more intimately to others. You may be born under an air sign, but you know that your emotions run deep, and lately, wide. Connect with yourself and you will find it both easy and appealing to connect with others.
Written in the Planets
Integrating mind and emotions is one of the challenges of being human, though it would be easier were we not so convinced that they’re unrelated experiences. Today’s contact between the Moon and Mercury is encouraging you to remember that you’re one being, united with yourself. It’s true that our psychic bodies have many facets. Sometimes it’s necessary to contrast what you believe and how you feel a few times before you start to see what the differences are telling you. Any one viewpoint that filters out others is probably not so useful. When trying to figure something out, you might ask: how do I feel? What do I think? What do I remember? What do I want?
