I am late with this blog because I was on vacation on the Jersey shore. During our vacation, the news was all about Brett Kavanaugh and his opposition. The Symbols in the sky at that time were very telling. Venus and Mars have been squaring each other for the last few weeks. This symbolizes a fight between the male and female forces. But during this time Venus was slowing down to turn retrograde on Oct 5 which indicates that the feminine forces were losing power. At the same time, Pluto was starting to gain forward motion after turning direct on Sep 30. This symbolizes the deep state gaining power. It was easy to guess who would win. The Venus Square Mars isn’t over. It is exact on Oct 10. The battle may continue to go on, but Venus is weak.
Dates to Watch:
Note to my Astrology Clients. Use the Planetary Placement and ascendant sheet to find if the following aspects will have a major impact on you.
Oct 2 – Mercury Square Pluto at 18 Libra/Capricorn. Be careful about dealing with large sums of money. Verify all of your bills to avoid mistakes.
Oct 5 – Venus turns retrograde in Scorpio and stays retrograde until Nov 16. Venus rules love and beauty. While Venus is retrograde be careful of buying very expensive products, you may not like them later. OR maybe you get a new hairstyle, you won’t like that later either. This is a good time to renegotiate a contract, an old love could come back, but you could get disappointed in that person again, just like the old days.
Oct 8 – New Moon at 15 Libra. On this new moon until the full moon on Oct 24, we may be motivated to form partnerships in marriage, business or friendships
Oct 9 – Mercury enters Scorpio until Oct 31. Mercury rules the way we speak, write and think. In Scorpio, we want to do research, speak about what is hidden and think about the taboo subjects in our life.
Oct 10 – Mercury Opposite Uranus at 0 degrees of Scorpio and Taurus. Anytime Mercury contacts Uranus, we can have sudden brilliant insights. Do you have the ascendant or personal planets at 28 or 29 Libra or Aries or 0 to 2 degrees of Scorpio or Taurus, if so you may realize that you really are a genius for today anyway.
Venus Square Mars at 10 Scorpio/Aquarius. You may spend too much on pleasure and you can be awkward in social manners too. May blunders can be committed with this transit. And don’t be too aggressive in romantic matters.
Oct 12 –Sun Square Pluto at 18 Libra/Capricorn. Someone can be making demands on you. It would be good if they were direct in their request, but no, with Pluto they use manipulation and that can drive you nuts.
Oct 15 – Mercury Conjunct Venus at 8 Scorpio. Conjunctions are stronger than any aspects and Scorpio is deeper, tougher and more passionate than the other signs. You could hear from a friend or lover about their repressed emotions or some old lover contacts you about how they have loved you all of these years.
Oct 19 – Mercury Trine Neptune at 14 Scorpio/Pisces. Trines are positive aspects and when it connects to water signs, it means that our close relationships can run smoothly. Also, good news can come to you from afar.
Mercury Square Mars at 14 Scorpio/Aquarius. Be careful of all communication. You feel like fighting today and will need to keep your emails under control. Don’t insult anyone on social media.
Oct 23 – Sun enters Scorpio until Nov 22. This is the period that includes Halloween. The ancient cultures believed that the veil between this life and the other realities is very thin right now. If you think you see a ghost, maybe you do.
Sun opposite Uranus at 0 Scorpio Taurus. Someone could be trying to push you around today because they think they know better than you. Try to compromise.
Oct 24 – Full Moon at 1 Taurus. This is the culmination of the New Moon on Oct 8. This Full Man is on Uranus, so a lot of crazies could come out for the next few days.
Oct 26 – Sun Conjunct Venus at 3 Scorpio. This is a good day to make new friends. Your popularity increases.
Oct 29 – Mercury Conjunct Jupiter at 27 Scorpio. You could get some really good news today. It may be about a trip or a speaking engagement or an opportunity to attend a class.
Oct 31 – Mercury enters Sagittarius until Nov 16. Mercury is happy here, she can think about philosophy, religion, travel and all the things he wants to do. But unfortunately, in Sagittarius, he only gets about 10% of his plans accomplished.
Venus Opposite Uranus at 0 Scorpio/Taurus. You may decide to form a relationship with someone a little crazy that you would normally avoid. You are just showing off about how liberal you are.
OUTER PLANET TRANSITS:
JUPITER is now in Scorpio. This month Jupiter moves from 22 to 28 degrees of Scorpio. 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 21 to 28 degrees of Scorpio. Scorpio types are into growth, they are always looking at ways that they could better themselves, especially emotionally and psychologically. Jupiter in Scorpio will help you with that. But in Scorpio, he can also bring excess in all the things that are not good for you.
SATURN is in Capricorn until 2020. This month he will move from 3 to 4 degrees of Capricorn. If you have the ascendant or any personal planets at 3 to 4 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer, 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 Capricorn he is asking about your ambitions, your career, and your work ethic. In Capricorn he is right at home and wants to build something, make plans and succeed in the outer world.
URANUS is in Taurus until Apr 2026. He will retrograde back into Aries this Nov until March 2019. While in Aries he will cover 28 to 29 degrees. This month he is retrograde and will move from 1 to 0 degrees of Taurus. If you have personal planets or the ascendant at 1 to 0 degrees of Taurus or Scorpio, you feel a need for freedom and you want to make some radical changes in your 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 retrograde and moves from 14 to 13 degrees of Pisces all month. 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 14 to 13 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 moving direct and will stay at 18 degrees this month. Profound changes will be felt especially by those with the ascendant or personal planets at 18 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer. What needs to die in order to be reborn?
Have a good month.
