YOUTUBE VIDEO TO COME!
The recurrent aspect for the October astrology forecast is the fixed Uranus T-square. This comprises of Sun, Mercury and finally Venus opposing Uranus which is square the Moon’s nodes all month. Themes of Uranus in Taurus will be triggered by the personal planets one by one (Dates in the aspect list at the bottom of this post). I will talk about this more in the YouTube video to come.
October brings us the start of the passionate Venus retrograde in Libra/Scorpio which is mostly easy to deal with. A third person could enter a relationship which ignites a rebalancing between the couple. This season’s themes are mainly about reviewing 2018 as we draw towards its close. This is because as Mars comes to the end of its shadow period, Venus will start her retrograde the very next day.
Venus Retrograde from October 6 to November 16 ~ 25º Libra to 10º Scorpio. Check out the link for the full Venus retrograde report. Venus loves being in this last decan of Libra and is very harmonious and graceful here. It will ooze charm but in a way that is not too sickly sweet. Because this position is so balanced, it will never lay things on too thick. Those touched by this Venus retrograde will know exactly when to pull back when they are trying to seduce someone or land a deal. Venus here will act as a giant magnet and draw people to itself. But it will start its journey in Scorpio where it is not so powerful.
Venus will still pass through the constellations of Libra, however, so relationships will have a chance to recalibrate themselves. There are some danger points when Venus passes over 15º Scorpio and the star Zuben Elgenubi “Bad for marriage, sudden and secret death, may be poisoned owing to the jealousy of one of own sex.” Eeek!, which is the Libra scale of loss. But all is well when Venus passes over 17º Scorpio and the star Zubenelscemali the scale of gain. “Social success, help from women, favourable for love affairs and marriage.”
In the YouTube forecast, I look at the tele-microscope aspect pattern and how it will affect your sign. I also look at the Mars retrograde shadow period and what it means in Capricorn decan 3 and Aquarius decan 1.
The aspect of the month is known as a Tele-Microscope. It can be looked at as a telescope looking into the distance or as a microscope looking down into detail depending which way up it is positioned. In the individual monthly horoscopes, I will show you what this means for your individual sign. But generally, if this aspect is found in a natal chart:
“the person is curious and wants to know, but it is not defensive. Instead, he dares to use and test the possibilities of the green (aspects). But this gives rise to the “magnifying glass effect”, allowing things to get out of proportion. The best possible applications are obtained by very accurate observation. The figure can be used in both ways in any location, but a certain self-awareness is required…The semi-sextile enables meticulous differentiation and the quincunx allows the wider context to be seen. If the awareness is adequate, from the small, the great can be understood. Otherwise, everything is just seen in its great interconnectedness and the small things are avoided (telescope position), or one always sees the little things and is not interested in the big picture (microscope position.)” 
So this month we have the opportunity to get the balance between nick-picking in our lives or distancing ourselves so much that we cannot see the granularity and everything becomes very black or white, or good guy/bad guy. Otherwise, the planets are pretty much behaving themselves this month with no personal planet retrogrades. Saturn turns direct on the 6th which means Aquarius and Capricorn heavy or ruled charts can start to move forward with their foundation building without any more “karmic” interference and obstacles.
