Wild hearts can't be broken—and neither can their spirits. On Sunday, October 16, the year's only full moon in courageous Aries will rock the skies. Along with being its fiery, badass self, this year's Aries full moon is ALSO a potent supermoon—meaning it's at its closest possible point to earth, causing it to appear up to 30 percent brighter.
The full moon/supermoon in Aries is also known as a Hunter's Moon or Travel Moon, since it is the first full lunation to follow September's Harvest Moon. The full moon/supermoon in Aries is set to rise just after sunset and sets near sunrise, making this is the only night in October when the moon will hover in the sky all night long, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac. For all you stargazers out there, the moon will reach its full lunation around 12:24 a.m. EST.
The Aries full supermoon will also travel at a close degree to iconoclastic Uranus, making for one liberated weekend. This forthright cosmic energy will draw out our freedom of self-expression and our deepest, most fiery passions. Tip: Just go easy on the "my way or the highway" bluster. Power struggles can easily erupt under these explosive skies. Instead of fighting for world domination, divert your attention to your wildest dreams. Dive into a passion project, or debut the one you've been working on since the corresponding Aries new moon this past April 7.
"Know Thyself" is this full moon's commandment. Say "yes" to what you REALLY want and "no" to what you don't—clarity will be easy to come by as the weekend draws to a close. The Aries full moon/supermoon basically transforms the world into a talent show, putting our most cherished dreams on center stage. Got something fabulous to promote? Save the humblebrags and go big and bold.
Caveat: Competition could get fierce, as Aries has an "all about me" vibe that can never quite get enough attention. Make some room for others to shine, too, instead of fighting for headliner status!
What have you been striving toward since the spring? This is the week to cash in and collect your comeuppance. New moons take six months to reach their corresponding full moon, and Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. La luna brings you full circle, baby—a time to see the results of your brave actions.
Here are a few tips for harnessing the heat and manifesting your wild dreams during the super-charged supermoon in Aries:
