October 2015

Starwise Forecast for October 2015

We enter October with a waning Moon, following the Full Moon/Eclipse on the 27th.

6 – After a week of only Lunar aspects we have this rather active day. First the Sun in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn. Relationships vs. earnest, serious endeavors will have a to be looked at in a very deep and profound way. The ways of diplomacy may be sorely tested.
 
Later Mercury in Libra harmonizes with Saturn in Sagittarius. This should help to stabilize and focus, the relating discussions, leading to morally just commitments.
 
Later Mars in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces. Not a good time to get obsessed with and overly attached to the details, even though letting them go may feel like a floating vulnerability.
 
8 – Venus goes from fiery Leo into earthy Virgo until November 9th.
 
9 – Mercury stops its backwards-retrograde motion and moves direct.
 
10 – Venus in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius. A bit of idealistic analytical emotional energy challenged by the laws and moral restrictions of Saturn in Sagittarius. Don’t get too critical or morally restrictive.
 
11 – Jupiter in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto in Capricorn from 2008 – 2025 is a long period of transformation of economic and organizational structures. In these days we can apply some detailed Jupiterian enthusiasm toward implementing that transformation.
 
Later the Sun in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries. So we have the Sun in tension with Pluto on the 6th and now the Libran romantic, diplomacy is in tension with the Uranian end of the on-going Pluto/Uranus Square. In this case the diplomatic efforts may be severely challenged by surprise, revolutionary, impulsive actions and expressions.
 
12 – The Sun/Moon, New Moon conjunction in Libra. The time to ritually focus one’s intent towards harmonious, effective partnerships of all kinds on this day where we can potentially truly align and integrate the conscious and unconscious/instinctual orientations.
 
13 – Mercury in Libra harmonizes with Saturn in Sagittarius. (See October 6th)
 
15 – Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn. Similar to the Jupiter in Virgo trine on the 11th. Now the will and drive of Mars can engage in the practical details in service of the deeper Pluto in Capricorn transformations.
 
16 – Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces. Venus in Virgo can be overly idealistic and/or critical. Being in opposition to Neptune in Pisces can either confuse and dissolve her capacity to indulge in those behaviors, or accentuate a fearful vulnerability and therefore triggering those behaviors in an even more irrational, unconscious way. The lesson is always, always, always: choose Love and not Fear.
 
17 – Mars in Virgo conjuncts Jupiter in Virgo. Now we can really engage some enthusiastic power in working through all those details.
 
22 – Mercury in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. Mental diplomacy and relational orientations will be severely challenged, perhaps seen as inadequate, in relation to the deeper structural changes taking place at unconscious levels.
 
23 – The Sun in Virgo trines, harmonizes with, Pluto in Capricorn. Here that idealistic, at times critical, Virgo feeling orientation can be improved greatly by being put in service of the greater collective transformations within and without.
 
Later in the day the Sun goes into the month of Scorpio.
 
25 – Mercury in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries. Here Mercury completes the engagement with the Pluto/Uranus Square begun on the 22nd. Now by moving into opposition to Uranus. So even greater frustration for those diplomatic, relational orientations by unruly, impulsive, aggressive revolutionary forces. Or, our diplomatic, relational orientations will give in to becoming unruly, impulsive, aggressive.
 
27 –The Sun in Scorpio/Moon in Taurus Full Moon opposition. The Solar conscious energies are engaged by the deeper emotional energies of Scorpio, while the Lunar unconscious/instinctive energies are engaged by also a need for love but more important to be tangibly expressed. Integrating the two is the order of the day.
 
30 – The Sun in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces, so we can end the month with faith and trust that it is safe to own the emotional intensities of ourselves.
