That was a doozy of a lunar eclipse on Sept 27 and 28 at 4 Aries/Libra. The reverberation from that eclipse is still being felt and will be felt for a few years. Check the eclipse article to see how it was involved with your natal chart. An eclipse creates a very sensitive point in the sky. This point is at 4 Aries/Libra. Sometimes an event doesn’t happen on the day of the eclipse, but later when the eclipse is triggered by the Sun or Mars. The trigger days are Nov 20 and 21 when Mars reaches 4 Libra and March 26, 2016 when the Sun reaches 4 Aries.
This is a very important month for those of you born between the 24th of August and Sep 6. A Lot of ups and downs, but mainly ups. You will also be impacted if you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) or the ascendant at 0 Virgo/Pisces to 13 Virgo/Pisces.
Dates to Watch:
Oct 6 – Mars Opposite Neptune. Keep your wits about you! This aspect can lead you to wandering around in a fog. Don’t invest in anything! Don’t take advice from anyone! Try to stay grounded. This aspect can last a few weeks.
Oct 8 Venus enters Virgo until Nov 8. Venus gets mighty fussy on this one. She wants a partner who is a neatnik. You could become a critical nag if you aren’t already.
Oct 9 – Mercury turns direct at 10:57 EDT at 0 Libra. This is a time to implement our plans for the future. You could see the way forward if you have any personal planets or the ascendant at 0 Libra or Aries.
Oct 10 – Venus Square Saturn at 1 Virgo/Sagittarius. You feel irritable and ready for a fight. You have a smug, self-righteous look on your face that goes along with that big chip on your shoulder. Hide, don’t talk to anyone today, you will just tee them off. You are especially obnoxious if you have any personal or the ascendant at 0 or 1 Virgo, Pisces, Sagittarius or Gemini.
Oct 11 – Jupiter Trine Pluto at 12 Virgo/Capricorn. A very constructive aspect. Your creativity will allow you to make substantial gains and progress in any area of your life that you want to work on. Energy just flows. Especially powerful if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 10 to 14 Virgo or Capricorn.
Sun Opposite Uranus at 18 Libra/Aries. Some crazy person can come into your life and try to tell you want to do. Try to be tactful.
Oct 12 – New Moon at 19 Libra. A good day to set an intention about what you want to bring into your life this month. This new moon is all about your relationships.
Oct 15 – Mars Trine Pluto at 12 Virgo/Capricorn. This is a good opportunity to clean up your affairs, rid yourself of clutter and people in your life that are not in line with your goals and wishes.
Oct 16 – Venus Opposite Neptune at 7 Virgo/Pisces. Confusion around social events and relationships. Best to use this aspect in decorating your home. Venus/Neptune is found in the charts of interior decorators.
Oct 17 – Mars Conjunct Jupiter at 14 Virgo. Optimistic and willing to take a chance. You may expect too much from this aspect and get disappointed. But it does give you the energy to go after what you want. To push forward.
Oct 22 – Mercury Square Pluto at 12 Libra/Capricorn. Double check the bill you receive in a restaurant and don’t lend any money to anyone. Pluto is wealth and Mercury is a dirty little thief.
Oct 23 – The Sun Enters Scorpio until Nov 22. This is the dark, Halloween time of the year.
Venus Trine Pluto at 12 Virgo/Capricorn. A good time for a party and for sealing a pact of friendship.
Oct 25 – Venus Conjunct Jupiter at 15 Virgo. First conjunction was July 1 this year. You may have started a relationship back then, but it probably ran into a lot of obstacles because of difficult aspects from other planets. Now that relationship is free to develop although it will move slowly because Virgo is a shy, introverted sign but loyal and there for the long haul. This aspect brings love and good feelings to everyone. It can be a wish come true aspect. Or a dream trip or vacation. It could bring in good luck and abundance, but watch out for overspending. This aspect is especially strong if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 12 to18 Virgo or Pisces.
Mercury opposite Uranus at 17 Libra/Aries. Don’t enter into an argument with a business associate. There could be a temperamental flare-up
Oct 27 – Full Moon at 3 Taurus. A great full moon for staying home, taking care of your stuff and cleaning up the yard and garden.
Oct 30 Sun Trine Neptune at 7 Scorpio/Pisces. There should be a lot of ghosts prowling the streets this Halloween. This aspect brings in the paranormal and things that go bump in the night.
OUTER PLANET TRANSITS:
JUPITER is now in Virgo and will move from 10 to 16 degrees this month. Jupiter is about growth and expansion especially in travel and education and also in the area of your life ruled by the house in your natal chart that holds 10 to 16 degrees of Virgo.
SATURN is in Sagittarius until Dec 2017. This month he will travel from 1 to 3 degrees of Sagittarius. If you have the ascendant or any personal planets at 1 to 3 degrees of Sagittarius or Gemini, you may be in store for some hard lessons around the issues ruled by the planet and the house the planet is in or rules. While Saturn is in Sagittarius, he is asking about your belief system, your hopes for the future and your travel plans
URANUS is in Aries until 2018. This month Uranus is moving retrograde and will move from 18 to 17 degrees of Aries. We feel a need for freedom and we want to make some radical changes in our life. I believe in “cooperating with the inevitable”. If you have Uranus in a challenging aspect to your ascendant or personal planets, go on a long vacation, move, or make some major changes in your life.
NEPTUNE (creativity, sensitivity, escapism, dreams) is in Pisces until 2026. He is moving retrograde this month and will stay at 7 degrees of Pisces. A lack of focus, a sense of drifting or an inability to see a betrayal or disappointment until it's too late can be experienced by those of you with the Sun or Personal Planets at 7 degrees of Pisces or Virgo. For the enlightened out there, Neptune can also bring artistic, musical, creative expression, increased dreams and spiritual insights. Watch for some really inspired films to come out during the time Neptune is in Pisces.
PLUTO is in Capricorn until 2023. This month Pluto is moving from 12 to 13 degrees of Capricorn. Everyone is feeling the urge to purge and to find his or her truth. Profound changes will be felt especially by those with Sun, ascendant or personal planets at 12 or 13 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer.
Have a good month,
