This is a FULL MOON of RELATIONSHIPS – expect the unexpected – rekindling an old romance, sudden vulnerability in a current love interest, intensity of emotions, endings, or even fleeting encounters.
If you are single, you may fall head over heels – but the passion whilst intense & deeply erotic will most probably be short lived. If you are in a committed relationship, the depths of the shadow may come to the surface… a flirt, unexpected encounter with another, experimentation, betrayal, withdrawal or even separation / endings.
The above photo was taken last week at my October 2018 Heart Retreat.
During one of our early morning retreat Beach Walk / Yoga / Meditation Sessions – the beach was scattered with thousands of bluebottles in a narrow corridor that extended for many kilometers down the coast line. Hence the beach resembled the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy & the bluebottles her stars. Coincidently, as a couple of us laid down our wraps on the beach to sit quietly in meditation, in front of us we spotted a snake & a fibonacci spiral shell. This felt akin to the dark-rift serpent energy rising us up into our next greatest Soul Potential. What a TRANSFORMATIVE experience… and so very uplifting as we come into this weeks highly charged Full Moon… as we examine our self-relationship, our relationships with others & our relationship to life itself.

During this weeks October Full Moon (Moon opposition the Sun), the MOON in TAURUS (an Earth sign) is reflecting the light of the SUN in SCORPIO (a Water sign).
As the forces of the Sun & Moon oppose each other – Ego vs Emotions – our attention is being drawn to our Relationships due to the Moon also positioned in opposition to Venus as well as being conjunct Uranus.
What does this all mean… especially considering both Venus & Uranus are also retrograde. Put quite simply, expect the unexpected – rekindling an old romance, sudden vulnerability in a current love interest, intensity of emotions, endings, or even fleeting encounters. The kinky, deep sensual desires, darkest secrets… you name it… passion, rejection, lust, flirting, breakups… ANYTHING could happen this Full Moon.
Venus Retrograde & conjunct the Sun whilst in Opposition to the Moon… Venus rules all of our relationships, our relationship to self as well as love, family, friendships and our business relationships. When Venus is retrograde you may find that the world takes on a different hue, as what you previously experienced as beautiful now tends to be seen through different eyes. All your relationships maybe under the microscope this Full Moon and if you have avoided relationship then this maybe exactly what you attract. If you have slipped into old patterns (such as the glamour of overindulging in food, sex, alcohol), it is a time to also examine your relationship with substances and lifestyle choices.
With Uranus Retrograde & conjunct the Moon whilst in Opposition to the Sun… Uranus is like a wildcard of the pack, unpredictable, original and out of the box thinking. When Uranus is retrograde, chaos is often the order of the day as you expect the unexpected of an unexpectable planet ! If you are shy in your relationships you may find yourself at the centre of attention, or if you are an extrovert flirt you may find yourself hiding away. You may find your personality or behavior quite altered at this time, as your actions in the world oppose what others normally experience or expect of you.
With the retrograde planets Uranus & Venus strongly aspecting this Full Moon… this will be a Full Moon where your relationships may take unexpected twists.
If you are single, you may fall head over heels – but the passion whilst intense & deeply erotic will most probably be short lived.
If you are in a committed relationship, the depths of the shadow may come to the surface… a flirt, unexpected encounter with another, betrayal, withdrawal or even separation / endings.
Overall, this highly charged RELATIONSHIP Full Moon will highlight where we maybe stubborn or controlling in our relationships. YES we can all explain away WHY we have to hold onto things and deny the truth of a situation – but how does holding onto that energy/circumstance really make you FEEL. AND what would it FEEL like if you let go of it ?
What a great full moon energy to dive deep into ALL of your relationships (including the relationship with yourself) and transform into LIGHTness in alignment with your HEART/Soul.
