Horoscopes for October 1:

Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “Today’s Full Moon in Aries aligns with celestial body Chiron which could bring up memories of a past hurt or leave us feeling vulnerable. Because of this it’s best not to make decisions that might influence current relationships. Being kinder to ourselves can help too.”

Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the significance of the Full Moon in Aries. Gilchrist writes: “A Full Moon equals full light (results or an energetic peak). In the sign of Aries, you can expect emotions to be raw and impulsive. Anger, aggression or passion may be featured.”

Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, writing: “We are caring but not without walls. We are reserved, but that means there’s more to love behind the scenes. It’s time to pursue work with passion and to find your life purpose. Venus in Virgo is an amazing time to learn about your love language and to make improvements.”
