***all times are PDT***
monday october 15th-
at 1:20pm mercury cojoins retrograde venus at 8’50 scorpio, aligning the mind and heart in powerful ways. this is a great time for heart to heart talks, for syncing up our thoughts and our feelings. it’s a great time to go deep in communication, connection, relationship, therapy and shadow work. when the throat chakra and heart chakra are aligned- communication can be Truthful AND healing/connecting.
tuesday october 16th-
the sun in libra opposes retrograde eris in aries at 4:20pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! sun/eris 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 key to healing and awakening right now!
wednesday october 17th-
jupiter in scorpio semisquares vesta in capricorn at 1:42pm, creating tension between the planet of expansion who wants to dive into the depths and shadows when in scorpio and the Priestess asteroid Goddess who wants order, commitment and stability when in capricorn. the duality between chaos and order, the hidden the seen is in focus today. being aware of what we may be committed to that is old paradigm and what needs to be seen/confronted/changed within or without is key.
pluto in capricorn squares ceres in libra at 2:40pm, creating tension between the Lord of the Underworld and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. the new moon was conjunct ceres and square pluto and today is the exact pluto/ceres square. there are major shifts, changes, death and rebirth going on in home/family dynamics, safety and security issues, nurturing and nourishment, and on a broader scale this is playing out on Mother Earth. when ceres is in libra she desires peace, balance and harmony- but the square to pluto ensures that some aspect of life as we know it is likely getting upset or revolutionized in some way. we need to address where we hold onto things out of safety and security- particularly things that are toxic, stagnant or no longer working for us. opportunities to see where we need to shift things in our relationships, home, family and inhabitance on planet earth abound right now! the key is to not bury our heads in denial but actually FACE them and see what can be done to instigate change and evolutionary shift (personally and collectively). issues around attachment, loss, childhood dynamics and more can arise right now. working with what arises is key!
thursday october 18th-
at 11:15am mars in aquarius semisquares retrograde chiron at 29 pisces, creating tension between the will and drive and the Wounded Healer planetoid. old wounds and pain arising in our relationship to the masculine (within and without) are present right now. are we impulsive, reactive, aggressive? do we stuff our anger and avoid holding clear boundaries? over the next 24 hours there is a tense aspect formed between mercury, mars and chiron- so watch what you say, how you communicate, how you hear things and how you express yourself. combative energy is not useful. but honesty with compassion is!
friday october 19th-
mercury in scorpio sesquiquadrates chiron in pisces at 1:46am, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer. communication can be intense, wounding, activating of old stuff and deeply emotional right now. navigate with care! a balance between speaking to the shadow and coming from compassion is key.
at 2:47am mercury in scorpio trines retrograde neptune in pisces, aligning the conscious mind and intellect with the planet of mysticism, intuition and compassion. mercury/neptune is lovely for spirituality, mysticism, dreams and imagination. with both bodies in water signs letting the emotions flow and focusing on communicating from the Higher Heart is supported right now.
mercury in scorpio squares mars in aquarius at 10:23am, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the warrior and will. mercury/mars could manifest as being honest, direct and open- but it could also manifest as combative, argumentative energy that is divisive. luckily neptune was involved earlier in the day. take the Higher Road but don’t spiritually bypass!
saturday october 20th-
there are no major aspects today.
sunday october 21st-
pallas in virgo quincunxes retrograde eris in aries 10:58am, creating tension and friction between the Warrior Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! last week pluto trined pallas and today eris quincunxes her. some wake up/shake up astrology is playing out politically and with women all over the world (just tune into the news). eris in aries wants us all- women and men- to be in touch with our anger, rage and shadow. pallas in virgo likes precision and discernment but if she is too compartmentalized- eris can come and shake things up to wake us up! change is in the air- politically and otherwise!
have a blessed week!
