There are days when you want to say ‘to hell with it all’ and let your heart lead the way — no matter the consequences or costs. Well Wednesday, Oct. 20 is one of those days. A Full Moon took place in fire sign Aries at 8:57 a.m.
Full Moons are days when projects finish, plans are finalized and your feelings about a person or intention become more obvious. Since this Full Moon takes place in Aries, a sign known for its excitability and impulsivity, you might find yourself rushing to get things done, forcing the finalization of a project or decision and/or feeling impatient with just about everyone.
Called the Hunter’s Moon, this Full Moon is urging you to go out into the wild and hunt your passions.
The trine between Mars, the bringer of action, and Jupiter, the bringer of luck, puts an extra pep in your step; the square between Mars and Pluto, the planet of transformation, has you questioning how badly you want what you want. Should you keep fighting or let it all go? Mercury is direct, but still in its shadow phase, so answers, decisions and actions will be delayed a few days.
With this Full Moon, there’s a tug of war between two paths, created by the Aries Moon and the Libra Sun: Do you go the direct route to your desires or do you diverge and delegate? Aries energy makes you put yourself first and act on your passions, but you’ll also feel more emotionally raw, like all your feelings are on full display.
Now, for a more accurate picture of how the Aries Full Moon will impact you, you have to look at where both the Moon and the Sun are in the sky. I’ve conveniently noted the astrological Houses these two luminaries are activating on Wednesday.
So, without further ado, your 2021 Aries Full Moon horoscope:

Self-centeredness doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Then again, it may lead you to act without thinking: Your ego pushes you to separate yourself from the group. That devil-may-care impulsivity may be charming to you, but today it could incite unnecessary drama and initiate one or two power plays…
Houses activated: 4th / 10th
