On Oct. 24, a full moon will make all the Halloween vibes even spookier. This month's full moon is called the Hunter's Moon, and it's thought of as the last Full Moon of the autumn season — it got its name because it was once used as a signal for hunters to search for meat before the cold winter months. Like any other month, this full moon will have some sort of effect on everyone out there. While it will affect each sign differently, there are some general full moon astrology predictions for October that everyone should be aware of.
This Hunter's Moon is in Taurus, which is the zodiac sign known for stability and growth. Taurus is also ruled by Venus, which is currently retrograde right now through November 15. And Venus is actually in Scorpio right now, meaning it's in opposition to this full moon. Are you still with us? Okay, so oppositions mean that we basically experience the not-so-great parts of each celestial body. According to PureWow, "The moon rules our emotions, which will feel a little more fragile and volatile than usual. Meanwhile, our instincts for love, harmony and diplomacy are likely to give way to jealousy, discord and separations."
So what does that mean when you break it down? With everything combined — the full moon in Taurus opposite Scorpio and Venus retrograde — this is sure to be a kind of intense period of time. You definitely will want to know what to look out for, so check out the astrology predictions for this moon below:
