Taking place on October 9, 2022, this Full Moon is in close contact with the asteroid Chiron, known as 'the wounded healer' in astrology. It means that we may feel extra sensitive around this time – like our deepest fears or underlying insecurities could feel particularly raw, brimming to the surface, or even publicly exposed. But luckily, at that exact moment, the Sun is tightly connected to Venus, which offers a kind and compassionate counterbalance to the lunar intensity.
The New Moon darkens the night sky on September 25th, inviting us to collectively tune into the truth of our relationships. In Libra, it’s all about balance, give and take, fairness, negotiation and of course, compromise. Libra’s shadow side is indecisiveness and overthinking, both of which are themes critical to this lunation.
While the thought of a retrograde may make you wince in despair, Uranus retrograde — which started August 24th, 2022 and lasts until January 22nd, 2023 — is nothing to stress out about.
On August 20, 2022, Mars enters dualistic, fast-talking Gemini for a seven-month circuit, until March 25, 2023. The reason for this protracted period? The red planet goes retrograde from October 30th until January 12th, 2023. He usually stays for about two months in any one sign, but due to his backward dance, his visit is much, much longer.
The day that Jupiter seems to be standing still in the sky, just before it flips its course and starts going retrograde, is July 28 2022. Jupiter is in fiery, youthful Aries on this day, so feelings would be fast and furious and changes would take place swiftly.
The Full Moon in Capricorn on 13 July, also known as the Buck Moon 2022, is taking no prisoners. The Moon is challenged in the sign opposite her home in Cancer, and joined by powerful Pluto. Thus, our gentle Moon may struggle to open up and reveal her vulnerable emotions during this time, even if the most violent of storms is happening within. Culminations of a cycle begun at the New Moon in Capricorn on January 2nd are being revealed now, for better or for worse.
