For the first time in 19 years, Halloween falls on a full moon, and this year, it’s an extra special blue moon event.

The full moon only occurs once every 19 years on Halloween. This year’s full moon on Halloween is especially exciting because it’s a blue moon, meaning it’s the second full moon in a month. See how this full moon will affect your zodiac sign.


Aries (March 21 – April 19): Aries, the sign of the ram, is a very passionate sign. This moon will disrupt routines and is a good time for Aries to reflect on their values. It’s important for Aries to ground themselves and make sure they’re using their energy in valuable ways. 


Taurus (April 20 – May 20): This full moon is in the placement of Taurus, causing this sign to be more heavily influenced by its effects. While Tauruses often have smaller social circles and keep to themselves, the energy of this may cause those with this sign to find themselves wanting to broaden their horizons. 


Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Geminis usually enjoy a fast-paced lifestyle, but with their ruling planet Mercury going into retrograde, they will be feeling the need to slow down. The blue moon will highlight this sign’s creative side, making it a good time for Geminis to try an artistic project. 


Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Cancers are the most emotional of the signs and enjoy routine. However, the moon on Halloween will likely make cancer want to try things outside of their comfort zone and expand their social circles. Community and friendship will become more of a priority for Cancers during this full moon. 


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Leos are the most confident of the sign, and this moon will amplify that. This is a time when Leos are functioning at their full potential. Leos should use this time to share their new ideas and seek advancements in their career. 


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Virgos are often very organized with how they spend their time. Sometimes they become too sedentary in their routine, but this full moon will cause this sign to want to expand their horizon. This Halloween, Virgos should try something spontaneous.


Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Libras are very sociable, balanced people. The Halloween moon will cause Libras to explore their philosophical side. On this full moon, Libras should seek personal growth and strengthen their close relationships.  


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Scorpios have a lot of depth when it comes to relationships, allowing them to make close connections. This full moon will bring changes in this sign’s love life. Scorpios should look for clarity in matters of love and friendships.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): A Sagittarius is very spontaneous and like to be on the go. This Halloween, though, this sign should invest in some self-care. As well, a Sagittarius should spend their Halloween relaxing and hitting the pause button on anything stressful.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): It can be challenging for Capricorns to indulge in their fun side, as they are very focused, work-oriented people. However, this full moon calls on Capricorns to stop taking life so seriously. This Halloween, Capricorns should find their inner child and be spontaneous.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Aquarians are known for their individuality and their disposition to emotional detachment. This moon will force Aquarians to listen to their emotional side as opposed to pure logic. This sign should spend time with close friends and family in order to express their deeper feelings. 


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Pisces are child-like and lovable. This full moon wants them to embrace their social side. They will likely receive lots of messages from friends and family on Halloween. Pisces should also try to reconnect with past relationships.
