Bad Moon Rising

Full Moon Aires/October Forecast:

𝓡𝓾𝓷𝓷𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓘𝓷𝓽𝓸 𝓣𝓻𝓸𝓾𝓫𝓵𝓮

Knight of Wands / Five of Swords

𝔼𝕟𝕖𝕣𝕘𝕪 𝕆𝕧𝕖𝕣𝕧𝕚𝕖𝕨:

This full moon in Aires brings us the brilliant energy of the Knight of Wands (KnW). The energy is anxious, eager, motivated, passionate, and ready to move; however when we glance ahead to see where he is going… it appears he is about to run into some trouble (5S).

So although we have the desire, enthusiasm and energy to move things along to where we want them to go, we could find we are having expected (and unexpected) opposing energies within ourselves; as well as opposition, conflict, challenges, and very strong turbulence from other people and situations in our environment. Anger, frustration, and tempers can be at a high right now with the fire energy present.

I get two songs with this combination of cards… the first is “Bad Moon Rising” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Truly a song of the times. I never realized how dark that last verse was! Very much like the dark times we find ourselves in.

Although I do recommend we be prepared for extremely challenging times and unexpected events (economy changes, shortages, tension, gvt overreach, conflict, social unrest, mood swings, relationship shifts) I do NOT recommend we “prepare to die.”

Certainly we can try to continue denying what is happening around us, but the truth is… we are living through some strange and biblical times. There is an unsettled energy and an obvious nefarious agenda playing out around us; however, this suggests we move forward despite the “nasty weather.”. The knight shows us taking action, staying the course, and going forward with optimism, integrity and bravery.

Notice the KnW is prepared. He carries a wand that can be used as a tool for empowerment, but can also be used for self defense. He is approaching this bully with courage, a positive attitude, and integrity, but understands he may need to engage in battle if necessary.

Unfortunately the bully (5S) seems to be better equipped, much more aggressive, stronger, and darker. The knight may be facing sneak attacks, aggression, divisive tactics, and hidden agendas. The KnW is brave, and full of optimism, and he does not fall into fear.

Translation: We cannot let fear cripple us as we move through the storms both collectively and in our personal lives. We need to remain optimistic, resourceful, and flexible to find a way around the any obstacles that we face. We must avoid falling for divisive tactics that will break us down.

𝔽𝕚𝕧𝕖 𝕠𝕗 𝕊𝕨𝕠𝕣𝕕𝕤: “𝔹𝕣𝕖𝕒𝕜 𝕄𝕪 𝕊𝕥𝕣𝕚𝕕𝕖….”

“Break My Stride” by Matthew Wilder. Wow. This dates me, but let’s ignore that and start with the fun upbeat energy of the lyrics:

“Ain’t nothing gonna break my stride

Nobody gonna slow me down, oh no

I got to keep on moving…”

That’s the vibe of the KnW as he skips along despite the gnarly energy of the five of swords! We have to keep moving forward in a positive, healthy way despite the dark roadblock of the five of swords.

It looks like a face off of good and evil, nature versus technology, leadership versus rulership, a healthy movement versus the resistance, man vs machine, morality versus legality, and peace versus war.

We are truly standing in these unprecedented times throughout our world, our country, and in some cases, our personal lives.

This could even represent the fight of light and dark within ourselves. KnW is authenticity, clear intentions, and honesty against the dark with its hidden agendas and the people trying to protect them. So where is this taking us collectively and personally?



I think we are heading straight into troubled waters. Despite big events and chaos, things in the US have seemingly just been humming along this past summer… but as we bridge over into the Fall Season, turbulence builds and it may erupt without warning.

Strong October vibes. Around the time of October 5th may be significant for events taking place, but the remaining fall/winter season are tense. What are some things I am getting with this?

Possible trouble with CHINA is on the foreseeable horizon. That red sun in the 5s is angry; and this brings me back to the lyrics of “Break My Stride”… the beginning course opens with:

“Last night I had the strangest dream,

I sailed away to China

In a little row boat to find ya”

I had no idea this song mentioned China, so that lends us confirmation. This may allude to war, threats of war, or issues with shipping. The water in that card is red… we could question potential bloodshed or contaminated oceans. We may be looking at Navy involvement, attacks come from water, oil spills, or attacks on water supplies. This sounds scary… however, let’s refer back to that KnW… we are going to move through this with eyes wide open, creativity, adaptability, and bravery. We may have to work around things, we may have to face things, but as long as we stay united we will move through things.

I also feel this shows clashes coming up between ways of life, ideas, and what is moral versus what is legal. This could be with large groups, this could show demonstrations with the people versus the people in power. This suggests a long hard battle, and the bully in the 5 of swords may seem more powerful as he keeps trying to “take things away” but the KnW continues to move forward with a positive attitude, integrity, light, and non violence. He uses his fiery passion to fuel his quest.

The KnW desires freedom… he like to roam. Having said this, we could be facing issues with travel and restricted movements somehow. There could be roadblocks and obstacles in our path. Again, the KnW doesn’t seem rattled… he just keeps moving despite them. He will go around if he needs to.

I do feel there will be some “bloodshed” in politics. Dark agendas will be revealed, and things heat up between politicians. They may turn on each other and try to bring each other down as the dominoes fall.

This may bring opportunity for a new energy to enter the stage… a more youthful, transparent, authentic way. Of course this will be resisted by those trying to keep control, but the light is now exposing too much for the old to hold on. We are entering the biggest battle of our time, but I feel we organize and unite as the hardships we face inspire us to move forward as ONE. We realize we have all been victims.

Motivating factors include: issues with health or lies surrounding health, lack supplies, loss of faith, loss of jobs, loss of homes, lack of help from the gvt or people in power, and from financial hardships.



Trying to be positive and move our lives forward, but we may be encountering some resistance along the way. This can be our own emotional and mental conflicts or obstacles and disruptions that feel impossible to overcome, but with optimism, passion to succeed, and a clear vision of where we are going, nothing is impossible.

Potential issues with shaky relationships. Sudden conflicts, news, or events may surface that put a nail in the coffin for struggling and expired partnerships. Be mindful that pent up aggression and anger are very high, and domestic altercations can turn physical if your partner is prone to this behavior. Be cautious and careful. PICK YOUR BATTLES.

Facing the “bully” within (ego), we neutralize its attack on ourselves. We see it for what it is, recognize that it has defeated us in the past, and face it head on, knowing it is not going to stop us from moving forward anymore. We are done fighting with the enemy… but we must move through this last battle first.


Although a “bad moon” is rising and we have “trouble on the way…” I feel collectively we move this trouble together, keeping motivated towards a healthier way of living and existing, and personally we move through the storm for the same purpose.

Watch for:

*political dismantling/disturbances

*military/law enforcement highlights

*threats of or actual war

*social justice groups, highlights, protests, urest

*divisive tactics

*erratic behavior by others, emotional outbursts

*water issues: Navy, spills, contamination, flooding, supply

*financial shifts / supply issues

*travel disruptions or movement issues

*nature versus technology, leadership versus rulership, a healthy movement versus the resistance, morality versus legality, and peace versus war

*Relationships/Partnerships that are past expiration date are ending.

*Supply issues, job losses, sudden changes with economy

The only way out is through. October is a catalyst for a lot of change that can roll forward for the next 5-18 months I think this turbulent energy may actually carry into 2025. There will be unstable and hostile energy, angry people, turbulence, and threatening situations that will force us to become brave, adaptable, and creative.


𝕋𝕙𝕖 𝔸𝕕𝕧𝕚𝕔𝕖/𝕋𝕒𝕜𝕖𝕒𝕨𝕒𝕪:

Do not give up. Be courageous, be brave, and be prepared to make change or adapt as needed. Keep emotions centered, and eyes on the path ahead. Keep moving forward even if the obstacles seem impossible, or the battle seems like it can’t be won.

The bully in the 5 of swords may have more tricks, more power, and more tools at his disposal, but he is so busy trying to “win” and hoard swords, he cannot fight the battle efficiently or effectively.
Find his weakness and use it against him to move forward. His biggest weakness can be found when we do not engage with him as it limits his power over us. Keep emotions and egos in balance, and use creative approaches to solve problems.
