October Astrology Forecast

We are officially in fall after a very intense summer with Mars retrograde, Mercury retrograde, five outer planet retrogrades, three eclipses and major portal openings. A lot of the energies were felt internally as frustration, delays, anger and being triggered. It has been a time of major examination of who you are, where you live, what you do for a living and who you know. Are you in alignment for your highest good? I know many people who moved out of state in the last month. Sudden departures, new jobs, deeper relationships or endings, new bursts of creativity and a craving for a new adventure.  Looking at your life from a new perspective brings new opportunities and a renewal of magic. Have you experienced people from your past showing up? Whatever needs healing and completion will show up now. Clean the slate and get prepared for a brand new chapter. Good time to journal, be in nature, meditate, explore your creativity and think outside the box. For those self-employed, try a new angle with your business that brings joy and challenge. Get out of your comfort zone and be willing to experiment in areas that you have no experience. Pluto went direct today after being retrograde since April 22nd. Now is the time to move ahead with your goals, intentions and long range plans. Clarity returns with ease. This past five months have been a major test with patience on all levels. You may have experienced it with finances, business, contracts, relationships, getting results and moving forward. Pluto is a very inward, magnetic powerful planet. It can destroy and rebuild. Think of this period as a reset. It is very important to clear away the debris psychically, emotionally, mentally and physically. Decluttering your soul of the debris will allow the new intentions to evolve easily and magically. Clean out your closets, clean your office, get rid of broken things in your environment and create a vision board for the next 6 months. Intention along with divine action. We are entering a very powerful period to shift your life- be willing and ready to say YES! With Mercury, Venus, Jupiter visiting Scorpio and Pluto direct, the themes of depth, emotions, reality, transformation, healing will dominate the landscape. What area of your life has lost its luster? What are you passionate about? You may not feel very social during this Scorpionic month. Take time for self-care, massages, healing, inner work and visioning. A lot will transpire at a very fast speed.

Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn both want results. There is focus, tenacity and strong will power to take advantage of. We have done major excavations of our soul over the past year and there appears to be a lightness of being ready to emerge. Very productive and purposeful time. This is the year to be of service in a new way.  2018 numerologically is the 11 vibration which is a master number. Time to show up in a bigger way. Not a time to hide your talents or say someday i will do that. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn persevere  with sheer determination and tenacity. Procrastination is not part of the equation.  Pluto in Capricorn is the planet that cuts to the core and weeds out what is no longer needed. It is essential to pay attention to your inner divining rod!  Now is the time for reclaiming the magic in our lives and opening up to possibilities that seemed unlikely. The energies on the planet are intense and are teaching us to flow instead of forcing the river. Allowing and Accepting, will align us with Neptune (the divine). Time to break out of boxes that are so out of date and keeping you small. Time to bring your life into present time. The baggage needs to go. We are lightening our load and the vibrancy of the new reality cannot occur with denseness of the past. Listen to your soul and check in to see what your dreams are telling you. Many people are feeling a need to move, break out of relationships, change careers and live differently. Have you been feeling overwhelmed? Exhausted? Sensitive to energies? Join the club. Make sure you exercise and get out in nature. Grounding is especially crucial during this shake-up. Full Moon is October 24 in Taurus and New Moon is October 8 in Libra.

URANUS in Taurus! Uranus is the planet of revolution, change, awakening,  sudden intuitive hits, and innovation. Uranus in Aries has spent the last seven years activating the world in warrior fashion. Chaos, upheaval, rebellion, protests have occurred to change the world. Now that Uranus is in Taurus, the way in which change takes place will be on a very different vibration. Taurus is one sign that does not like change. It wants comfort, security and money in the bank.  Uranus will rebel in the world of money, fashion, business, beauty and security. How we view our own security can change directions. Uranus wants to be free from being tied down. We will find unique ways to create businesses, new trends with fashion, less conservative tastes, more color in homes and unique housing villages getting launched. This seven year phase will get the ball moving with intentional housing communities for the baby boomer generation. Good time to create your own trend and not follow others. Let your unique artistic style stand out.     The energy we experience in a Uranian transit, can affect our bodies with lots of nervous energy, anxiety, insomnia and a feeling of being in a blender. Clearing out the inner clutter will open up new territories that have not been discovered before. It is important to ground yourself during these times with yoga, hikes and psychic protection techniques.

Saturn in Capricorn

Saturn, the taskmaster is in the sign Capricorn until December 2020. Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and is very comfortable here. Saturn loves structure, discipline and commitment. Capricorn loves accomplishing, respect, goals and status. This is a very good time to bring your goals into reality and work hard to accomplish. While Saturn was traveling through Sagittarius the past two and half years, we were looking at possibilities and exploring. Now it’s time to do the dirty work. Capricorn is an earth sign and needs to move in small increments. Create a goal chart or any system that can track your success. Look in your chart to see what house Saturn is traveling through and this will show where you need to get it together.

Venus in Scorpio Retrograde       October 5 - November 15th

During this retrograde window, we are being asked to reflect on all of our relationships and our values. Since the retrograde is occurring in Scorpio, some of the questions will be: Are we connecting? Am i getting my needs met? Is this my soul tribe? It will either be a yes or a no! This is not a time for grey. You will be examining your friendships to see if you are aligned and supported in a positive way. This is a transformational time in relationships to let go of the walls that are in the way of really getting seen and heard. A time of true intimacy if you are willing to surrender and open your heart. A lot of people may be uncomfortable with the intensity of emotions that surface during this period. Issues may be about sexual needs, money, power, passion, and traumatic history. Find a way to let go of which is taking up important real estate in your soul!

Mars in Aquarius                          May 15 - November 15

Mars the planet of desire visits airy, eccentric Aquarius. Mars will have an unusually long visit through Aquarius due to the retrograde happening at the end of June, which i will cover next month. Mars in Aquarius wants to rebel, protest and strike out into new territory. This is a very independent combo. Mars is your energy, drive, anger and men. Aquarius is an intellectual, unique, progressive, humanitarian sign. When these two join forces, you have innovation and electrical energy. Do something new! Go out into the community and meet new people. This is good for activist, progressive movements.
