The month of October is packed with dynamic energy of a Blue Moon month which means we have two full moons. This intensifies the energy of all the planets all month long! The month begins on October 1st with a Harvest full moon @ 9 Aries. Sun in Libra (relationships) and Moon in Aries (warrior) may see endings and culminations to relationship problems. Aries will be fiery hot this month, especially since Mars is in retrograde and the closest he will be to earth on October 6th which makes him especially potent. This will not occur again until September 2035! Watch your temper and steer clear of people who may trigger you. You may have issue of freedom vs together in relationships. You will not want others to have authority over you. Full moon is conjunct Chiron so health related problems may arise, especially anything related to the head or you may even find a solution to a long-standing health problem.
Venus enters the sign of Virgo October 2-Oct. 27 You may be picky and discerning about the people you spend time with. The tendency to want perfection and accuracy will make you crystal clear on what you want in friendship and love.
Pluto moves direct Sunday, October 4th @ 22 Capricorn This is a good time to take the lessons you have learned from the deep transformations of this intense year and move forward in a new positive direction. This is also good because the “power trio” of Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn that has been plaguing us all is finally moving forward and splitting apart.
October 9th is the second time that Mars forms a square to Pluto. The first time was August 13th and the last time it occurs is December 23 when both Mars and Pluto are direct. Frustration and tension will be high. Do not force anything, let things come naturally. You may feel out of control or feel like people around you are aggressive and testy. This can be dangerous energy. This is not the time for getting into arguments because everyone will end up losing and there is a good chance on December 23rd the same issue will come up for resolution when Mars squares Pluto for the third and final time.
Mercury in Scorpio turns retrograde @ 11 Scorpio on October 13th Mercury backs into Libra October 27 and remains until going direct November 3, 2020 Election Day! Same day Mars opposes the Sun. This Mercury rx. will feel a lot longer this time due to the fact Mercury square Saturn, Mercury quincunx Chiron retrograde, and Mercury oppose Uranus occurring from September 23 - November 17. You may feel disoriented, confused and not sure what to believe as all types of “theories” about what’s going on appear. Secrets, lies and things that want to stay private may surface. Be extra careful with credit cards, your money and potential fraudulent schemes.
Sun squares Pluto 22 Libra/Capricorn October 15 Ego conflicts may arise with authority, government or father figures.
New Moon at 23 degrees of Libra October 16 This is an intense New Moon as it opposes Mars in Aries and squares Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn forming a cardinal t-square. We may see more radical opposition from different organizations/groups but it could also open doors to active negotiation and moving into a brighter future. The key is to surround yourself with things that make you feel safe and nurtured, family and close friends. Let go of that which is out of your control, be secure within your own inner space. This marks the beginning of a new era. Time to clean out relationships that no longer feel right to make way for the new.
Sun Square Saturn at 25 degrees of Libra/Capricorn October 18 Don’t take any risks today. Your world is full of obstacles and limits right now. You may run up against annoying road blocks to your plans.
Mercury Opposite Uranus at 9 Scorpio/Taurus October 19 Mercury rules communication and Uranus the unexpected. There could be some surprising disclosures today. Careful of your speech today, you could blurt out something that you will regret. Keep your lips sealed!
Venus Trine Pluto at 22 Virgo/Capricorn October 21 This aspect can bring romantic happiness or an enjoyable gathering with friends. You find that you have more confidence. You are willing to release old fears because they hold no place in your life anymore.
Sun enters Scorpio October 22 - Nov 2 Proceed slowly and keep your eyes and ears open. Be the researcher and dig deep for societal truths and as well as your own truth. You will be in a don’t take no for an answer mood!
Venus Trine Saturn @ 22 Virgo/Capricorn October 24th This is very stabilizing energy and a great day to begin a long-term project, collect money owed or get in touch with a long lost loved one.
The Blue Full moon, a Hunter’s moon @ 8 degrees of Taurus Saturday, October 31st conjunct the unpredictable planet Uranus. You’ll be asking yourself trick or treat due to possible sudden changes in circumstance. Be on the lookout for ballot fraud and surprising information revealed close to election time! Time to make important decisions on what makes you feel insecure vs what strong and resilient. Anything that is makes you feel anxious time to write it down and burn it in a ceremony. Perfect time to step out of boundaries and dive deep. Decide having gratitude for all that you have. Great for embracing your true self and making a great transformation! There may be money or relationship surprises!
