Dates to Watch:
Oct 1 – Venus Trine Neptune. A good day for decorating your home or rearranging the furniture. Inspirational thinking is at the fore.
Oct 5 – Mars Square Jupiter at 5 Capricorn/Libra. Mars wants action and Jupiter expands the range of the action. You may decide to throw everything away, including people. Try to be a little prudent.
This is very strong if you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) or the ascendant at 5 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn.
Oct 7 – Sun Square Pluto at 14 Libra/Capricorn. You need to maintain your self-control today. You are power mad and can get in direct conflict with everyone around you. Especially difficult if you have any personal planets or the ascendant at 14 Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn.
Oct 11 – Mercury Conjunct Jupiter at 6 Libra. You could get some really good news today. It’s a great day to advertise your business. You are feeling optimistic.
Oct 13 – Mercury Square Mars at 10 Libra/Capricorn. Everyone is saying exactly what is on their minds today. This could lead to a lot of bickering. Keep your tongue.
Oct 15 – Sun Opposite Uranus at 22Libra/Aries. There is some busybody around you trying to tell you what to do, what to think and how to act. Nod your head and then leave.
Mercury Square Pluto at 15 Libra/Capricorn. Your vacation plans could cost more money than you plan. You aren’t thinking clearly about your budget or maybe you don’t have a budget. Get real about the money you have.
Oct 16 – Full Moon at 23 Aries. This is a culmination of events set in motion or the plans made of the New Moon of Sep 30. Aries brings in a desire for change.
Oct 18 – Venus enters Sagittarius until Nov 11. Aphrodite doesn’t want to stay home and be a housewife anymore. Now she wants to travel. Your relationships could enter a period where one or both of you want more freedom. No more co-dependence and playing kissy face.
Oct 19 – Mars Conjunct Pluto at 15 Capricorn. Mars can get angry and Pluto can be explosive. If you have personal planets or the ascendant at 15 Capricorn, I would suggest a day at the gym with a punching bag.
Oct 20 – Mercury opposite Uranus at 22 Libra/Aries. Don’t let yourself get irritated by someone today. You could say the wrong thing to the wrong person at the wrong time. Cool it. Keep your trap shut especially if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 22 Libra or Aries.
Oct 22 – Sun moves into Scorpio until Nov 21. We have been trying to balance our emotional lives last month. Well, when the Sun moves into Scorpio there is no more balancing. Now we have intense desires and everyone should just stay out of your way.
Oct 24 – Mercury enters Scorpio until Nov 12. Our thinking last month was about finding the positive in others. Now, we focus on how nasty everyone is.
Oct 25 – Venus Square Neptune at 8 Sagittarius/Pisces. You feel very timid and giving today. But, don’t let others treat you like a doormat.
Oct 27 – Sun conjunct Mercury at 4 Scorpio. We are thinking of the dark side of life. Interesting that The Inferno movie is coming out tomorrow during Sun and Mercury in Scorpio. Scorpio is the ruler of Hades, the inferno.
Oct 29 – Mars square Uranus at 21 Capricorn/Aries. Stay away from crowds. People could get hysterical today.
Venus Conjunct Saturn at 14 Sagittarius. Sexy, young Venus is out looking for an older gentleman. If you are an older gentlemen watch out. We all want our relationships to be based on security.
Oct 30 – New Moon at 7 Scorpio. This is the start of a new month. Set your intentions for what you want to accomplish this month.
Mercury Trine Neptune. You could receive good news from far away. A good day to daydream.
OUTER PLANET TRANSITS:
JUPITER is in Libra until Oct 2017. This month he moves from 4 to 11 degrees of Libra 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 4 to 11 degrees of Libra. In Libra, he would bring good news and harmony in relationships.
SATURN is in Sagittarius until Dec 2017. This month he will travel from 11 to 14 degrees of Sagittarius. If you have the ascendant or any personal planets at 11 to 14 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 retrograde and will move from 23 to 21 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. This month he is retrograde and will stay at 9 degrees. 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 9 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 moves from 14 to 15 degrees of Capricorn all month. Profound changes will be felt especially by those with Sun, ascendant or personal planets at 14 or 15 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer.
Have a good month.
