October starts eclipse season with a passionate Scorpio new moon solar eclipse on October 25. Before that Mercury goes direct on October 2 while at the same time opposing Neptune square Mars. Watch out for gaslighting! Addiction can also be a problem with Mars square Neptune on October 11.

If you want to heal any relationship rifts, the period between October 11 to 20 is perfect. Even the Mars square Neptune can be used in a spiritual warrior fashion by those who manage to avoid its obsessive and histrionic tendencies.

Heal Relationships

Mars square Neptune is not exact until November but keeps within orb in October as Mars is so slow pre-retrograde. Saturn at 18º/19º Aquarius is beautifully healing on the gentle dolphin star Sualocin. So Saturn’s trine to Mercury makes the seed moment of Sun conjunction Venus which takes place at the very last degree of Libra extra powerful on October 23.

Learning Triangle

There is a learning triangle in the sky from October 11 to the grand air trine on October 14. Lesson learned and healing takes place. The conflict is Saturn square Uranus, the adjustment is between Sun conjunct Venus quincunx Uranus and the resolution is Sun conjunct Venus trine Saturn.

So mid October is a Libran peacemaking period which should bring us all back into balance if we have been feeling worn out from overwork and anxiety stirred up during Virgo season! October is not without its dark moments the Sun enters Scorpio on October 23 after all. We also have Saturn square Uranus in effect in the background because they are both still retrograde. There is another learning triangle on October 27 with the propaganda of Mercury square Pluto. The adjustment is Mars quincunx Pluto and the resolution is Mercury trine Mars.

Communications could be vicious at this time and we will need to learn not to lash out in spite or revenge. Jupiter goes back into Pisces for the last time on October 28, the last few degrees of this decan are Scheat! Jupiter on this fixed star can bring imprisonment. Will someone prominent be arrested? As I wrote in Pisces Decan 3 post ” I like the fact here that “religious leaders speak out”. Some modern-day Joan of Arcs are needed in these times. The judgemental side of Jupiter takes full power here.” Jupiter in Pisces lasts until December 21, the winter solstice!


October Chart Of The Month

We have a romantic Libra Sun, Mercury and Venus all trining Mars in Gemini from October 14. I’m making that lovely grand Air trine my aspect of the month. Saturn in Aquarius completes the harmony making the trine about committed love and stability.
