When Is The October 2018 Full Hunter's Moon In Taurus? How Lunar Energy Affects All Zodiac Signs In Love & Relationships
Love, Zodiac

Those who enjoy following astrology and learning about the zodiac signs are likely asking themselves right about now, "When is the next Full Moon in 2018?"

The Full Hunter's Moon is just around the corner, as it arrives on October 24, 2018.

Why is it called the "Hunter's" moon?

As explained on EarthSky:

"In skylore, every full moon has many names, and most are tied to months of the year. But some moon names are tied to seasons, such as the Harvest and Hunter’s Moons. The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. The Hunter’s Moon is the full moon after the Harvest Moon."

Essentially, the Hunter's Full Moon marks the peak of Autumn before the winter chill kicks in. But more than the season is changing right now — especially around dating, love and romantic relationships!

Weaknesses in bonds will be highlighted, and sudden changes in relationships or new love could happen with the flip of a switch.

The opposition of the Sun in Scorpio and the Full Moon in Taurus shines a blaring light on what you can no longer ignore in your love life.

Add in Venus opposite Uranus for a kick of excitement and uncertainty, and you have a recipe for both break-ups and make-ups.

This is the time to focus on what you want versus what you need in relationships, as well as the quality of your work-life balance. So take some time to meditate on what you want most moving forward, especially while Venus is still in Retrograde until November 16.

Stress and personal conflicts will leave you feeling physically and emotionally drained if you aren't self-aware about all of the underlying dynamics at play. Operating in awareness is what allows for personal growth here.

What we don’t want to see is usually the very thing we need most to acknowledge.

While this cosmic chaos ensues, remember that as the Bull, Taurus likes to roam in comfortable, familiar pastures.

These deep emotions, long forgotten, will make things unfamiliar and uncomfortable now, but you must work through them. Any emotional baggage you haven't yet processed is likely to show up in your body through physical symptoms such as poor digestion, sleep issues, pain, weight gain, etc.

Here are 4 self-care techniques for coping with uncertainty in love and relationships around the Full Hunter's Moon on October 24, 2018.

1. Pamper yourself

Taurus loves to be pampered, so schedule a massage, take a yoga class, or cuddle up with your beloved while sipping a pumpkin chai latte.

Add a dash of romance to warm up the winter chill.

2. Cry it out

Have a good cry.

Sometimes, a good cry will open up and cleanse pent-up emotions, such as anger, sadness, heartbreak, and grief.

3. Acknowledge your fears

Write down your three biggest fears, read them out loud, and then burn the paper (safely!), freeing yourself from fears grip.

Simply identifying and acknowledging the monsters in your closet is a great way to began the process of letting them go.

4. Express gratitude

It’s Autumn, so savor the blessings and stay in gratitude. Devour each precious moment, basking in natures color show, and harvest the seeds planted during the New Moon back on October 8.

Start a gratitude journal and acknowledge the good in your life.

When you consciously express appreciation, you plant more seeds for good in your life.
