October’s astrology has been full of intensity from a Mercury retrograde and a supercharged new moon in Libra.

With it still being spooky season there will be a full moon rising on October 20th bringing the lunar cycle to a climax.

Find out the spiritual meaning of the Hunter’s Moon below and how you can work with the full moon energy.

What is the Hunter’s Moon?

The Hunter’s Moon is the first full moon occurring after the Harvest Moon which is the full moon that takes place closest to the date of the autumn equinox. As the Harvest’s Moon occurred in September, October’s big lunation is the Hunter’s Moon.

Its name is derived from the fact that this is a traditionally good time for hunting game in preparation for the winter months.

What is the spiritual meaning of the Hunter’s Moon?

Its spiritual meaning relates to powerful energy that helps us stand up for ourselves and regain power and control and its cosmic challenges require us to use skill and patience to make the most of the energy.

The Hunter’s Moon is about activating our inner warrior as the darker side of the year begins. Full moons in astrology mark the energetic highpoint of the moon’s monthly journey through the zodiac which generally heightens our feelings.

According to astrologer Narayana Montúfar: “This full moon in Aries is spicy and not for the faint of heart, as it is set to bring intense emotions to the surface. It is a culmination of all the work we’ve been doing during the entirety of Libra season, which will recalibrate our relationships so we can live more authentically.”

How to take advantage of the full moon energy

As the full moon takes place in Aries, it highlights the need for independence, bravery and taking control of our own lives. It is about finding peace within ourselves and letting go of anger, frustration and resentment.

As situations in life naturally come to an end, these lunations are a great way of letting things go that are weighing you down as well as releasing any negative energy. The Hunter’s Moon gives you the chance to let go of relationships, beliefs, or habits that are restricting you from moving forward, being in control and getting what you want.

Aligning ourselves with the spiritual energy of the Hunter’s Moon allows us to embrace self-improvement and feel more connected to the natural cycles of the planets.
