Full Moon October 2022 Astrology
The October 9 Full Moon at 16°32′ Aries is opposite Venus. This triggers a longer term influence as the Sun-Venus conjunction is not exact until October 22. The highlighted aspect lines below also show the Full Moon sextile Saturn.
Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces, such as work versus home or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts peak when the Moon becomes full. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your relationships. You will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Full Moon in Aries Aspects
Full Moon opposite Venus increases your need for companionship, and you should feel more loving and affectionate. However, it can also create tension in relationships. It may become harder to share warmth and tenderness. Differences between partners can become more evident and problematic.
If dating, you may tend to lower your standards just to be with someone and not feel alone. A shallow or unfulfilling relationship or unrequited love may be the price for such a strong need for close companionship.
If your emotional needs are not fulfilled through human contact, you may be susceptible to substitution through food, alcohol or drugs. Is more self-love and self-acceptance needed before a true soul mate enters your life?
Full Moon sextile Saturn brings stability and security to your personal and home life. Emotional maturity, self-discipline and patience help you understand any relationship or self-worth issues resulting from the Aries Full Moon opposite Venus.
You will be more in touch with your deepest feelings to help share your love and affection. And you will likely feel protective of your partner, family, community, and nation. Relationships will benefit from greater loyalty, commitment, responsibility, dependability and respect.
Full Moon October 2022 is good for attending to shared responsibilities, especially those relating to your home and family. You could respect tradition and ancestors by visiting a nursing home or cemetery.
Saturn square Uranus is now at its tightest orb since it was last exact in December 2021. It will gradually weaken but may still bring restrictions, natural disasters and political and financial instability. There may also be other severe changes and unexpected setbacks. However, the Full Moon sextile Saturn gives the patience and determination to prevail over hardship.
The Full Moon in October 2022 is in the Sign of Aries. But as the star map below shows, it is actually in the Constellation of Pisces. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago. The Signs were only invented as a measuring device. Astrologers continued to use the visible constellation and their stars for astrological interpretation.
Although this full moon is in Constellation Pisces, it most closely aligns with stars in Constellation Andromeda, the Chained Woman.

The Head of Andromeda
Constellation Andromeda bestows purity of thought, virtue, honor and dignity but causes a battle with chimerical fears and a tendency to become easily discouraged.  It is a generally favorable constellation denoting that which is honorable and eminent. Badly placed, however, it can portend earthquakes. 
Fixed star Alpheratz gives independence, freedom, love, riches, honor and a keen intellect. It is like Jupiter and Venus (contented, happy disposition, honorable, philosophical mind, legal or ecclesiastical preferment, help through women.) 
In good aspects, it is significant for a harmonious nature, which brings about a good relationship with other people and makes for popularity. 
With Moon: Energetic, persevering, honor, wealth, many good friends and business success.  Can count on becoming well-known in public and popular with the masses.  (Angelina Jolie, Martina Navratilova)
Full Moon October 2022 Summary
The October 9 Full Moon opposite Venus can create tension in relationships as differences between partners become more evident and problematic. And the Sun opposite Moon already creates inner tension and external pressures that affect intimate relationships.
But the Sun opposite Moon also brings emotional strength and intuition to help overcome relationship challenges. This is aided by the Full Moon October 2022 sextile Saturn, which brings emotional maturity, self-discipline, and patience.
Finally, fixed star Alpheratz ensures that problems with relationships and self-worth can be overcome. It encourages love, harmony, and friendship.
