monday october 1st-
at 11:52am mars cojoins mean black moon lilith at 6’15 aquarius, aligning the will and drive with the fierce Dark Feminine. this powerhouse of an aspect can be seen in the maelstrom of the politic news right now regarding kavanaguh and dr ford (if you are not aware of this google it and get informed). the warrior aligned with the Dark Goddess is a force to be reckoned with! the shadow of this can be the anger and rage that explodes on both sides- from women who have been assaulted by men and by the men who have done the assaulting and the response to the shame that arises when they are called on it. lets pray that this kind of astrology starts bringing to the surface the real issues that need to be addressed right now. women need to get in touch with their rage and grief- and men need to get in touch with their shame. until this happens and is processed in a healthy way (shadow work people!) healing cannot truly happen.
tuesday october 2nd-
at 5:03pm mercury in libra squares pluto in capricorn, creating tension and friction between the mind and intellect that wants peace at any cost and the Lord of the Underworld that wants to expose what is in the shadows. the degree to which we are identified with the surface, with peace and balance and not wanting to rock the boat- is the degree to which things could be a little choppy over the coming days (between now and 10/11 when sun squares pluto). this is a time to DIVE DEEP and confront what is hidden beneath the surface within ourselves, within our relationships, in business and in the patriarchy. steer clear of power struggles but at the same time don’t back down from speaking your Truth (from a healthy boundaried heart).
wednesday october 3rd-
the sun in libra semisextiles soon to station retrograde venus in scorpio at 6:36pm, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Love and Beauty. both the sun and venus in libra and scorpio are illuminating the depths we are going to go in relationships, finances and self-worth in venus’ upcoming Underworld journey. pay attention to what is illumined today! insights into the coming 42 day deep dive within are incoming.
thursday october 4th-
there are no major aspects today.
friday october 5th-
at 12:04pm venus stations retrograde at 10’50 scorpio, commencing venus’ 42 day Underworld journey. since september 3rd venus has been transiting her front end shadow and the days from 9/10-15 were very potent as harbingers of what we are going to be working with in the coming month a half as venus is in the Underworld. this is a time to reevaluate our relationships, finances, self worth/self Love, values and more. this is NOT a time to start new things (not advised to start a new relationship during this time, invest in a business, buy big ticket items and more)- but instead is a time to deal with the past. the karma unresolved from the past influences our present and future trajectory. people from the past may return to our lives for closure or completion. getting to the root of matters pertaining to Love, money and self-worth is key right now. more info on this will be posted when i get a venus retrograde video up (hopefully soon!). stay tuned!
mercury in libra opposes retrograde eris in aries at 5:14pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect that wants peace and harmony and the Warrior Goddess of Discord and Chaos that prefers upheaval to thinly veiled facades. again- communication can be revealing, shocking, intense and upsetting. the key here is to be willing to see what is out of balance or no longer working- not just trying to keep it all together to make it look pretty and peaceful on the surface. being in touch with deep emotions in healthy ways is key right now. healthy expressions of anger and rage can be liberating and freeing.
saturday october 6th-
there are no major aspects today.
sunday october 7th-
the sun cojoins ceres at 14’05 libra at 3:01am, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. sun/ceres brings focus to nurturing and caring for others but in libra these two can overdo this and over focus on others and their needs at the expense of the self. both the sun and ceres are in tense aspect to neptune today- which is a call to establish healthy boundaries and to take the rose colored glasses off so we are seeing ourselves, others and the world around us from a more realistic place.
at 8:17am the sun in libra quincunxes retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet of spirituality, mysticism, idealism and fantasy. both libra and pisces tend to focus on others and will sacrifice themselves. this is a time to orient to a healthy sense of self so we are doing proper self care and not just being victims or martyrs. seeing reality is key- so take off the rose colored glasses right now!
retrograde neptune in pisces quincunxes ceres in libra at 2:12pm, creating tension between the planet of sacrifice and surrender and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. mothers historically make a lot of sacrifices- for their children, families and for their relationships. the shadow of this plays out when the authentic self is sacrificed so that we are not living our true selves in these arenas of life. codependency and enabling are unhealthy neptune/ceres patterns- as is being in relationship with someone who acts like your child or you are looking for them to parent you. being aware of where we use addictions to numb out and just plain don’t want to face reality is key right now. seeing relationships, home/family situations and our childhood past through a more realistic lens is necessary.
have a blessed week!
