monday october 11th-
at 10:29pm retrograde mercury in libra quincunxes retrograde uranus in taurus, creating tension between the lower mind and the Higher Mind in shocking and unexpected ways. mercury/uranus is great for aha moments and bolt out of the blue awarenesses- yet the tense nature of the aspect can bring anxiety, chaos and unexpected information or communications that throw us for a loop. with both bodies in venus ruled signs it’s not likely to be a peaceful, easy going time right now. AND if we can find ways to move through intensity with grace we will make it through. stay open to revelations that change your path or perception of yourself or others in sudden ways.

mars in libra sesquiquadrates the mean north node in gemini and semisquares the south node in sagittarius, bringing a minor aspect trigger between the Will and Warrior and the nodes of destiny and karma. mars can activate an awareness of our growth path and the karmic patterns that hold us back. seeing where we need to temper our fire, be more relational and willing to hear/see things from another perspective is important. if you tend to stuff your truth then maybe now it’s time to take a stand?
at 12:26pm venus in sagittarius sextiles just turned direct saturn in aquarius, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. this is great for getting real, focused and honest about money, relationships and what is working in your life. seeing what relationships or endeavors are grounded and growth producing and which are not is key. with both bodies in signs that are uber independent- this can also be a call to finding balance between freedom and commitment. “Freedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose – and commit myself to – what is best for me.” ~ Paulo Coelho.
the sun in libra quincunxes retrograde neptune in pisces at 8:31pm, 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 necessary- so take off the rose colored glasses right now!

friday october 15th-
at 4:46am the sun in libra trines retrograde jupiter in aquarius, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of expansion and abundance. this is a lovely aspect for socializing and engaging with others. both bodies are in air signs- so the sharing of information, ideas, visions and inspiration is supported today! jupiter’s energy blesses travel, exploration, learning, teaching, and mind expansion!
venus in sagittarius sesquiquadrates retrograde eris in aries at 5:22pm and semisquares pluto in capricorn at 7:21pm, bringing a trigger between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Pluto/Eris square.
venus/eris creates a minor tense aspect between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. with both bodies in fire signs our independence, creative energy and self focus is high. we want to travel, expand, explore and we DO NOT want to be bound. but too much fire can burn the whole house down so we want to temper our fire and discern when we are truly being free and in the moment versus when we are escaping dealing with reality.
venus/pluto creates a minor aspect of tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. venus values freedom and space in sagittarius. she wants to spread her wings and fly- traveling, teaching, learning and expanding! with the tense aspect to pluto there can be shadow coming up in Love and money situations. jealousy, possessiveness and darker emotions can arise right now- particularly if we are addicted to being all ‘Love and Light’. if our need for freedom and non-commitment comes from fear of intimacy or fear of deep connection this can be brought out of the shadows and into the Light. navigate relationships and financial situations/agreements with consciousness today.
saturday october 16th-
at 11:49am venus in sagittarius trines retrograde chiron in aries, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Wounded Healer. this is an aspect and transit of heart healing and is amazing for Love and connection. healing around our hearts, values and feminine aspects of self is in focus today. with both bodies in fire honoring our (and other’s) needs for space and freedom is supported today.
retrograde uranus in taurus opposes vesta in scorpio at 12:16pm, creating an opposition between the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener and the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus. this can be amazing for sudden and unexpected revelations and awakening spiritually, sexually and more. yet this can also be a disruptive energy where things come up and out of nowhere so having grounding practices and being in nature and with Mother Earth can be supportive right now.
at 5:31pm mars in libra quincunxes retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension and friction between the will and drive and the planet that dissolves the will and ego boundaries. mars/neptune can be great for spiritual service, creativity, imagination and artistic expression. yet this is a tense aspect and the will and directness of mars gets confused by neptune- which can lead to lies, deceit, illusion, confusion and a desire to escape via substances or omissions of Truth. seeing what we don’t want to see within ourselves and others is a lesson right now.
retrograde mercury in libra (about to station) sextiles venus in sagittarius at 6:23pm, linking the mind and heart in harmonious ways. with this happening 2 days before the mercury going direct- what you hear, speak, think or receive in information or ideas is important to pay attention to right now. speak from the heart and listen from the heart for best results!
at 7:53pm retrograde chiron in aries sextiles mean black moon lilith in gemini, linking the Wounded Healer with the fierce Dark Feminine. this can bring a deeply healing energy into relationships with women, with our own inner feminine (regardless of gender), in communication and in regards to our relationship to power. healing conversations, revelations and insights can be incoming- pay attention.
sunday october 17th-
att 1:31am retrograde neptune in pisces squares juno in sagittarius, completing the 3rd and final square between these two since march. neptune juno links the planet of idealism, romance and fantasy with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. this can be great for romance, compassion and unconditional Love if it grounded in reality. the desire to see the best in others is supported but also exacerbated by this aspect. the shadow of neptune/juno is seeing what we want to see, deluding ourselves or others in relationship and being misled by the desire to escape reality. using this aspect to rise up to the level of the Higher Heart and Unconditional Love while keeping healthy boundaries is recommended ;) taking off the rose colored glasses so we can see self and others clearly is the lesson right now.
at 2:34am the sun in libra opposes retrograde eris and squares now direct pluto in capricorn at 5:12am, triggering the pluto/eris square. we just had the 5th and final square on 10/8 and 2 days before pluto came to standstill- so this is a very deep and perhaps intense time where what is swept under the carpet is coming up and out to be addressed. finding a healthy relationship to power and rage is key right now.
sun/eris creates tension between the conscious self and ego and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! this can throw us for a loop- showing us that which we did not want to look at before. remember the libra principle is to find peace and harmony but eris reveals the shadow beneath the facade that creates disharmony. our willingness to look at ALL OF IT- shadow and Light- is the path to healing and awakening right now!
sun/pluto creates tension between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of the Underworld. this brings up all manner of stuff from the shadow and Unconscious realms in relationships, work situations and more. the sun in libra wants peace and harmony but pluto wants to expose what is toxic, stagnant, stuck behind the surface. our willingness to not just keep the peace but to dive deep is key right now. steer clear of power/control dynamics and instead work to stand in your power and Truth!
jupiter stations direct at 22’19 aquarius at 10:30pm, bringing the planet of expansion, positivity and excess to a standstill in the sky. jupiter is in one of the two signs of saturn and in sign of uranus. saturn’s energy is not a comfy place for the planet of expansion and excess as the saturn desire for discipline and limits is counter to jupiter’s impetus. yet uranus energy is very aligned with jupiter- they both do not like being controlled or reigned in and tend to rebel at any opportunity. so finding the right balance between rules and limits and rebellion and revolution is key right now. at best we can use the expansive energy of jupiter and channel it into community, collective care, innovation and invention. just watch out for being obsessed with freedom so much so that you cannot commit or see things through that require your maturity and mastery to be on board.
have a blessed week…
