We can aerate right up until the ground freezes, but I don't want to do it early, if its too dry or too wet... aerating in soggy clay type soil causes the problem of puddling, which means turning the plugs into stoney/gravelly chunks and possible compacted edges around the holes... if the process doesn't promote positive steps towards better tilth, then you are better off waiting, for decent soil moisture...
