The Full Moon of Sep 29 at 7 Aries created a T-Square (3 planets square each other) with the Uranus/Pluto square. A lot of folks out there have been going thru trauma. It is still in effect until 4 days and after that Full Moon. When will this Uranus/Pluto thing end? Not until 2015 I’m afraid. Maybe we all need to let go, and let God. Never thought I would be thinking that way, but this Pluto/Uranus Square has hit me and the people around me pretty hard.
For how the environment is faring under Uranus/Pluto Square transition read Dave Pollard’s Post of Sep 18, 2012 on his blog How To Save the World
To See How Religion is faring under this transition, read Mark Morford on the 2nd century AD fragment stating that Jesus was married Jesus, I'm Married

Is there any good news, yes I think we will come out the other end of this on a higher psychologically conscious level than we are now. We would have learned a lot about who we are, what we really need to be happy and how to work together. That is the way it happens in the charts of the people I consult, Pluto is death and rebirth and there is a rebirth when the transit is over and Uranus brings shocks and separations, but most of the time (not always) it gets rid of things or people you no longer need.
This month we have Jupiter turning retrograde on Oct 4 and Saturn entering Scorpio on Oct 5.
Dates to Watch:
Oct 3 – Venus moves into Virgo until Oct 28. Normally Venus can be kinda sleazy, but in Virgo, she starts to put on the high-collared white blouse and long skirt and pretend it’s 1890’s. We will all feel so prim and proper during this transit. We want to ring the bell for the downstairs maid to bring us some tea. And we don’t want to get down and dirty and go to a Irish Pub and sling down some ale with the guys. Wait for Venus to move into Scorpio for that sort of behavior, tsk-tsk.
Venus opposite Neptune. You are a little confused about your relationships and about how much money you have in the bank and if you are overdrawn or if your mate is telling the truth. Be careful of being deceived, you are not thinking straight about love or money and what else is there?
Oct 4 – Jupiter turns Retrograde at 16 Gemini and stays retrograde until January 13, 2013. For more info, read Lynn Koiner on Jupiter Retrograde
Oct 5 – Saturn enters Scorpio until December 2014. Look for the house in your natal chart that contains Scorpio. Saturn will reside in that house for 2 12 years. This is the area of life that will demand our attention. We will be willing to take a hard realistic look at how we are handling this area. Saturn will demand patience and acceptance in those matters that have not worked out so well for us. It is at this time that Saturn’s most important lesson come forward. When Saturn was in Libra the lessons were around marriage and on the national scene the gay marriage debate asked us to define marriage.
Now Scorpio is about taxes and other people’s money. Scorpio rules Power, Saturn rules Government and Business structures. At this time we will learn about who has the power in our society. Scorpio also rules foundations and grants. Finally it rules Psychology because it covers transformation, not only on the physical level but also on the mental/emotional level. Expect to see more self-help books.
Mercury Conjunct Saturn. Pay attention to the details even though you are feeling a little depressed and what to end it all. Think of all those people out there with Mercury in Capricorn, they feel like this all the time.
Mercury Enters Scorpio until Oct 29. We start to have fanatical strong opinions on this one and become an interrogator trying to pry others secrets from them.
Venus Trine Neptune. This is a great aspect for decorating your home. Dig out all those paintings from the attic that you have been too lazy to frame and hang up.
Oct 6 – Mars enters Sagittarius until Nov 16, 2012. Mars the planet of sex gets a little randy in this sign. You want to kid around, travel, and go on an adventure. You set a goal and go for it, but sometimes you forget the people you leave in the dust. Be a little more considerate.
Oct 7 – Mars Square Neptune. Be careful of your actions today, they may not be on the up and up. You may unintentionally deceive someone.
Oct 9 – Sun Trine Jupiter. This can bring in financial and educational opportunities but you have to be alert to the possibilities and go for it.
Venus Trine Pluto. This is a day for deepening all of your relationships. Also a good day for investing.
Oct 10 – Saturn Trine Neptune. I think when Saturn and Neptune pair up in a good aspect it is a very creative AND productive time. Take advantage of this day.
Oct 15 – New Moon at 22 Libra at 8:03:00 AM EDT. The start of a new month. Get busy and plant seeds of what you want to see in the coming month.
Mars Trine Uranus. It is time to think about the future and also to let your thinking and planning go into areas it has never gone before.
Oct 16 – Venus Square Jupiter. Personal matters are upsetting. Wait awhile before making a decision. You may overreact.
Oct 22 – Sun enters Scorpio until Nov 21, 2012. This is the month of darkness descending, Halloween and a time the vampires come out.
Oct 23 – Sun Trine Neptune. This stimulates your idealism. Go out and support your political choice, the one with character and integrity, heh, heh.
Oct 25 – Sun Conjunct Saturn. You feel restricted today. Concentrate on a difficult task. Not a good time to try to spread your wings.
Oct 28 – Mars Opposite Jupiter. You may take a big risk today that will not pay off.Watch out for extravagant claims.
Venus enters Libra until Nov 21, 2012. Venus is right at home in Libra. We will be feeling romantic and begin looking for that significant other.
Oct 29 – Full Moon at 6 Taurus at 3:39 PM EDT. This is the culmination of things begun at the New Moon of October 15.
Mercury Square Neptune. I was born with this aspect. It causes spaciness and ADD episodes. So if you are confused and kinda ditsy today, realize that I am like this all the time.
Mercury enters Sagittarius until Nov 14 when it retrogrades back into Scorpio. Yes, indeed, Mercury will turn retrograde next month. Guess on what day. Nov 6, Election Day! Mercury is the trickster. We will see what antics he is up to on that day. There will be many astrological predictions on what Mercury turning around in the sky will mean for the election.

OUTER PLANET TRANSITS
JUPITER is in Gemini until Aug 27, 2013. This month Jupiter turns retrograde on Oct 4 and will move from 16 Gemini to 15 Gemini. After the retrograde, you plans for expansion may slow down. You don’t feel as exuberant as you did. Look to the house in your natal chart that holds 15 to 16 Gemini. In this area of your life you may feel limited during the retrograde.
SATURN moves into Scorpio on Oct 4 until Dec 24, 2014. This month Saturn moves from 29 Libra to 3 Scorpio. If you have the Ascendant or any personal planets at 29 degrees of Libra to 3 Scorpio in your natal chart, 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. Scorpio rules passion, sex and depths of all kinds and Saturn may ask you to take on more responsibility for how you control your rage and psychological expression.
URANUS is in Aries until 2018. This
month Uranus is still retrograde and moves from 6 to 5 degrees. We all feel a need to rebel; we want more
freedom and 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) has just moved into Pisces until 2026. This month Neptune is retrograde and stays at 0 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 0 degrees of Pisces. For the enlightened out there, Neptune can also bring artistic, musical, creative expression, increased dreams and spiritual insights.
PLUTO is in Capricorn until 2023. This month Pluto has just started to move direct and will stay at 7 degrees of Capricorn all month. 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 7 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer.
Have a good month,
