Through the first week of October, the overall energy we have to work with is an applying aspect between Mercury, the planet of communication and Saturn in Libra. When they come together on October 6th, we become very interested in relationships and partnerships and finding our equilibrium within these connections (Please keep in mind not all relationships are love relationships). Our need to communicate is on our minds and this should over ride any shyness that this transit can produce. If you feel you have something to say to someone, and if you are like me, you most likely always do, then we may feel a bit reserved in speaking our mind but the Libra energy will override this feeling. We need things to be balanced. If they are currently out of balance for you, then use this energy to your advantage.
Saturn is happy in the sign of Libra and is helping us to release old beliefs and let go of old patterns and ineffective supports systems. With the transit of Mercury over the same real-estate in the solar system as Saturn, we are assured that some form of relationship communication will come out during the first week of October which allows us to move forward with less baggage. If you initiate this action, then you will have more control then if you sit back and wait for something to happen.
On October 9th, Venus moves into Scorpio. On the 13th, Mercury will do the same. This happens every year around this time. It can be fun or overwhelming. It depends on your personal chart. Venus in Scorpio for the next three and half weeks can make things very intense when it comes to our love relationships, especially if you are in a new fresh relationship when sexual interest is high. Venus in Scorpio will increase these feelings, so beware. If you feel you have just met the “right one,” wait a few weeks for the intense sexual energy to calm down a bit before making any rash choices. We do have a few other influences on the books this month as well that will add even more intensity.
The next is the ingress (moving into) of Mercury into Scorpio. So besides feeling this intense physical attraction to someone, we can now include verbal interactions as well. Deep probing conversations, the kind where you get to know someone very well quickly. Scorpio is the king of digging up deep dark secrets, and most of us will be influenced by this transit by simply wanting to know more about someone. Other people who express their darker side easier will use this transit to influence others into telling them their deepest secrets. As a matter of fact, most of us may be more willing to share just a bit more than we are normally comfortable with about our private lives to complete strangers if we are not aware. Then, there is the possibility that someone can become obsessive about us or you about them. Watch for this behavior and be aware.
To look at these influences in one more way, if you have something that you truly value and are interested in learning more about, the Scorpio energy will help you to dive into this project totally and completely or research or whatever it is that you need to do that involves a deeper understanding of that subject.
On October 11th, we have a Full Moon in Aries at 10:06 p.m. EDT and that means we need to be letting go of some things. The energy up till the Full Moon has been different and that is always the truth. The energies build and build till they have to let go from shear intensity. Aries rules the self, new beginnings, independence, self indulgence, being self-centered, not necessarily selfish, and the part of the body it rules is the head. When the Moon is full, we are being asked by the universe to now release some of these traits from our lives, so we can experience something else with the next lunar cycle. What I recommend we do, as I always recommend during the full Moon, is to write out the things that you want to release and burn each piece of paper separately. Doing this any time after 10:06 p.m. EST --and I mean any time…days later if that is when you get to it. We are not as particular about Full Moon rituals as we are about the New Moon, so do what you like to do to release your energy. Dance, howl at the Moon, write things out and burn them. Be open for something different this time, something innovative it is Aries energy after all.
Also, on the 13th, we have the Sun and Saturn conjunct, in the same spot in the zodiac belt. The 13th will be a day when we can settle in, feel grounded with self discipline or oppressed by the “MAN”. I have mentioned before that having Saturn in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn, we have had our fair share of foundations breaking down around us. Today’s Sun Saturn conjunction will help us to see what is left and feel good about it. Sometimes we need to feel thankful for the things that have left our lives. Today the Sun will shine its light on your situation so you can see what you have and what has left you. It should be a rewarding day for the most part, especially if you are being honest with yourself and those around you that you love.
On October 14th, we have a tough aspect between Mercury and Uranus. So even though the 13th looks good with the Sun and Saturn, if you have done your work you can expect something to feel incredibly intense and out of character. Since we have Mercury involved, we can expect communications to be messed up in some way. It can be as simple as your phone not working, because you forgot to charge it to a satellite falling from the sky and interfering with the global communications. Communications are just going to be weird for a few days surrounding the 14th, but everything will be fine within a few days as Mercury and Pluto will work on reestablishing the communication link.
By the time we get to October 23rd and the Sun moving into Scorpio, we will already feel the intensity of Scorpio because of Mercury and Venus getting there first. It is typical behavior. The Sun will come through now and over the rest of the month of October and shine its bright light on all the new things we have been learning about our partners, thanks to Venus and Mercury. I say partners because we just spent the majority of October in Libra the sign of partnerships. Now we will take the secrets we heard and the things we learned about others and look at the transformations that where started and go with them to another level. The Sun in Scorpio is intense, obsessive at times, possessive too by not letting go of something that may be on the mind. I am not picking on Scorpios here since we all have Scorpio somewhere in our natal charts. We are all this way in one area of life or maybe two no matter what our Sun sign is. If ever you need something investigated thoroughly, ask a Scorpio to do it. You will not be disappointed.
On October 26th, we have the New Moon in Scorpio and that will top off this month of intense communications, relationship adjustments, investigations and research. With the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus all in Scorpio, it has been interesting all month to say the least.
With this New Moon, some of the other things that Scorpio is also interested in is changes through transformation and self mastery. We can have power struggles that need some attention with the New Moon or a fresh look at how we manage our money. Venus rules the things we value and she is in Scorpio. If we are not totally focused on a relationship, then we could be focused on the money we earn or lack of. Scorpio represents the money we have available to us through financial partnerships or other people’s money that we can use. So with this New Moon energy, we could easily attract the financial backing we need for something as long as we stay in a positive place.
This New Moon Scorpio energy can also reignite the kundalini energy at the root chakra. Our interest in sexual relations may intensify now that the Moon is involved. We already have Venus and Mercury playing here. Now the Moon will trigger these planets over the next couple days and peak our interest once again.
To sum up, October we need to watch out for overly emotional/intense people including ourselves. We are all a bit intense right now and feel that something is changing or about to change. That is very typical this time of year. We should go with the flow now and not let our fixed energies run the show just now. Let’s give Scorpio his turn and allow him to transform something in our lives. Change is not always easy for everyone, so if you like change and can embrace it then help someone else out that seems to be having a harder time with it.
