Tonight’s full moon is expected to have a huge impact on love, financial stability and new beginnings, according to an astrologer.
Rose Smith said the full moon in Taurus, known as the Hunter’s full moon, is the perfect opportunity to reflect on lockdown, romance and finances.
The leading intuitive astrologer also said a planetary alignment known as the Finger of God is having its own impact on each of the star signs.
‘At the moment many people are coming out of lockdowns and enjoying new-found freedoms, but it’s important not to celebrate too early,’ Ms Smith said.
‘Many people have felt isolated and have been repressing emotions and events, the changes they are now going through actually represent a time when people need to be mindful that the heavens are challenging you.’
The October 21 full moon will happen occur at 1.56am on Thursday morning, in the part of the sky known as Taurus.
This is why there will be a focus on relationships and stability because those are key values held by the sign.
But some of the negative aspects of the sign will be felt too, with Ms Smith warning people to watch out for their own stubbornness.
‘After all these times of volatility, a little bit of calm and ‘steady as she goes’ is helpful to many now,’ she said.
‘Do watch for stubbornness however and don’t be a ‘stick in the mud’. There are many changes happening now, but some people will refuse to acknowledge these and seek to stay stuck in the past.’
Ms Smith said at the time of the full moon there are also strong influences coming from what’s called ‘The Finger of God’ or a ‘Yod’ in astrology.
This aspect pattern involves Uranus, Mercury and Venus which brings stressful situations where adjustments must be made.
‘The Finger of God can bring a compromising situation which is an ‘appointment with power’ as hidden energies are dredged up from the subconscious,’ Ms Smith said.

In the northern hemisphere, the full moon is called the Hunter’s Moon as it’s the end of the harvest season and marks the hunting that was done during this time of year. Hunters would use the light of the moon to track down game and stock up for the coming winter.Internet Explorer Channel Network
