Usually the independent Aries Moon's opposition to the cooperative Libra Sun reminds us to balance relationships with self-interest.
However, the Full Moon on Oct. 8, 2014, is a Total Eclipse conjoined with the karmic South Node in Aries, which sends a message to avoid isolating yourself.
Give up fights where you're going it alone, and be prepared to negotiate and compromise with friends, lovers and colleagues to make your life more pleasant.
This energy will affect some people more than others, so get your Personal Moon report to see how the Moon affects you personally, and look up your sign below to see what's in store during this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You might be overheated by emotions with this Lunar Eclipse falling in your impetuous sign. A tendency to act hastily or attract crises are undesirable possibilities of this Full Moon. Do whatever you can to cool down, because logic and compromise are keys to avoiding conflict. This is an excellent time to let go of old habits, patterns and ideas that keep you tense. Finding peace within and then with others is worth changing for.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Surprising events seem to come out of the blue with this Full Moon Total Eclipse in your 12th House of Secrets. However, you can escape unpleasant shocks by communicating more graciously at work. Stress on the job could leave you feeling isolated, which is why reaching out to others in a peaceful manner is recommended. If you're still stewing over wounds from the past, this is a time to let go and move in a new direction.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
This volatile Full Moon Total Eclipse in Aries lands in your 11th House of Groups, where it could trigger changes with friends and colleagues.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Professional issues could heat up with this impulsive Aries Full Moon in your 10th House of Career. This event is also a Total Eclipse, which is often a signal to change habits or situations. While leaping at exciting new opportunities is a potential plus, you're most likely to find peace and prosperity by staying calm under pressure. Maintaining harmony at home is a key to staying cool and clear on the job.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Travel and educational plans could shift with this Full Moon Total Eclipse in your 9th House of Higher Mind and Faraway Places. Impulsive behavior will create more problems than pleasure or solutions. If you find yourself in a major battle of ideas, finding common ground with your adversaries will be more productive than continuing a contentious debate. But if you must disagree, do it as graciously as possible.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Important personal and professional alliances are likely to be challenged with this combative Aries Full Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. You might be very reactive to others, which can wear you out as well as undermine trust. In fact, if you're struggling over major issues in a critical partnership, it's healthier to bite the bullet and initiate a change now than to wait until a crisis forces one upon you.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
If you're the only one putting in effort to make a relationship work, it's time to consider making a change. This bold Aries Full Moon is a Total Eclipse in your 7th House of Partners, making this time to take a stand. The key is that others need to be willing to discuss issues with you and to make compromises, if necessary. Treating yourself fairly is the standard to use in assessing your current situation or while seeking something new.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Changes on the job and in your daily routine are called for with this dynamic Aries Full Moon Total Eclipse in your 6th House of Health and Work. It's wiser to initiate shifts than to wait for a crisis to make them for you. This process requires the willingness to let go of activities where you find yourself struggling without making progress. Finding peace through nature, the arts and spirituality are benefits of this event.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Love, children and creativity are key themes of this Full Moon Total Eclipse in fiery Aries. It occurs in your expressive 5th House of Romance and Creativity, where matters of the heart could take a sudden turn. While it's fun and desirable at times to take risks, this event signals the need to be a bit more cautious. Jumping to conclusions is likely to do more harm than good now, so talk to a cool-headed friend before making any impulsive moves.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
A shakeup on the home front is possible with this volatile Aries Full Moon in your 4th House of Roots. This event, which is a Total Eclipse, can light some fires in your household.

Heading in a different professional direction is a good choice if you have the right partners and connections.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your strong and original mind is usually one of your best assets yet could prove problematic with this combative Aries Full Moon. This event is a Total Eclipse that lands in your 3rd House of Communication where unconventional points of view are as likely to spark conflict than inspire creativity. Expressing your thoughts in a more sensitive manner is a good way to reduce the chances of careless remarks and verbal conflict

Money matters come into play with this Full Moon Total Eclipse in your 2nd House of Assets. It occurs in the spontaneous sign Aries, reminding you to avoid impulsive spending. Rapid-fire reactions to questions about your abilities can also arise under this transit. Struggling on your own, though, is not the point, but connecting with fair-minded and cooperative allies will prove to be more rewarding than economic isolation.
