***All times are EDT***


Monday October 16th-
At 1:08am Retrograde Jupiter in Taurus opposes Ceres in Scorpio- creating tension between the Planet of Expansion and Excess and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. Jupiter/Ceres can amplify the desire to nurture and caretake but can also overdo it to the point of having no boundaries or limits. There can be things up in home/family dynamics, with mothers, or children. With both bodies in signs having to do with money and investments there could be things playing out in the financial sector as well. As this happens overnight pay attention to your dreams upon waking for messages from the Unconscious.


Tuesday October 17th-
At 9:27am Juno moves out of Leo and into Virgo- shifting the Goddess of Commitment and Partnership from fire to earth, yang to yin, passion to restraint. Juno in Virgo is committed to being of service, helping and healing others. Juno in Virgo is speaks the Love Language ‘Acts of Service’ and is a giver in relationship but she also needs to have her cup filled as well. As Juno heads to oppose Saturn we may get some reality checks in relationships and commitments in our lives. Are we giving more than we are getting? Are we playing the support role to someone’s overblown ego? Self care, discernment and boundaries are key!

Mercury in Libra quincunxes Retrograde Uranus in Taurus at 10:48am- 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.


Wednesday October 18th-
At 2:46am Retrograde Saturn in Pisces sesquiquadrates Pallas Athena in Libra- creating tension between the Lord of Karma and the Wisdom & Warrior Goddess. Saturn/Pallas can bring some reality checks around our vision and ability to see the full picture of what is going on. Pallas in Libra is wonderful for wanting peace- but the tense nature of the aspect with both bodies in signs that want to see the Light and avoid the shadow, there can be a tendency to be myopic. Saturn as the Great Patriarch can also infuse our thinking and perception with patriarchal ideas and agendas that we may not even realize we are adhering to! Questioning what is behind the curtain or swept under the carpet is key.

The Sun in Libra opposes Retrograde Eris in Aries at 4:27am- 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! Pay attention to what needs to be revealed, no longer concealed- in your life!

At 5:11am Mercury in Libra semisquares Venus in Virgo- creating tension between the Mind and the Heart. These two are in mutual reception (in each other’s signs) so there is some alignment between them- yet the aspect is tense. Mercury in Libra prefers peace and balanced viewpoints- Venus in Virgo values discernment and seeing clearly. If our desire for peace makes us ignore Truths that would disturb our peace- we will default to Mercury in Libra. If our desire for discernment makes us overly critical and judgmental- we will default to Venus in Virgo. Balance between Mind and Heart, discernment and compassion, severity and mercy- is key.

At 7:21am the Sun in Libra cojoins the Mean South Node at 24’49 Libra and at 1:59pm they align by declination, making a Super Aspect between the Conscious Self and ego and the Karmic South Node of the past. Sun/South Node amplifies and magnifies the karmic patterns playing out in our lives and a Super Aspect doubles down on that. Where are we people pleasing or peace keeping when what we need to do instead is TAKE A STAND, take action, say no or set boundaries. Relationships where we have ignored things or put up with things for far too long can be cracking under the pressure. Relationships that are balanced, fair and equal will be fine. The Sun is triggering the Eris/North Node conjunction incoming on 10/21. From now until then the Goddess of Pulling Back the Veil to reveal the Truth is amping up and getting louder. If you listen and work with her- the astrology can be positively LIBERATING!

At 10:57pm Mercury in Libra opposes Retrograde Eris in Aries- 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. 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. Today through tomorrow Mercury is triggering the Eris/North conjunction coming on 10/21. WAKE UP SHAKE UP TERRITORY IS INCOMING!!!!

The Sun in Libra quincunxes Retrograde Neptune in Pisces at 11:40pm- 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 and overdo the tendency to people please/peace keep at the expense of their well being. 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!


Thursday October 19th-
At 12:14am Mercury in Libra cojoins the Mean South Node at 24’47 Libra- aligning the Mind and Intellect with the karmic South Node of the past. Pay attention to conversations, insights and realizations incoming today around what is karmic and what needs to be resolved from the past. From yesterday to today Mercury and the Sun have been triggering the Eris/North Node conjunction exact in 2 days time. Mars triggered it from 10/4-5. Connect the dots between back then and what is happening now. Being willing to rectify imbalances, see reality, take action and deal with things head on is key!

Retrograde Saturn in Pisces opposes Juno in Virgo at 3:36am- creating tension between the Lord of Karma and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. Reality checks and heavy realizations or interactions in relationships, partnerships and marriages can be incoming. In any alliances or commitments we need have the rose colored glasses off so we can see things clearly- not from a projection of past or future (what could be/should be/might be/used to be).

At 10:12am Mercury in Libra quincunxes Retrograde Neptune in Pisces- creating tension between the conscious mind and intellect and the planet of intuition, illusion and idealism. Mercury/Neptune can be great for creativity, imagination and intuition but the tense nature of the aspect can make it really easy for us to delude or deceive ourselves or others or generally just be out to lunch. Watch out for over idealizing people or situations and seeing what you want to see! Take time to meditate and reflect and make big decisions in a few days when the aspect has passed.

Venus in Virgo sesquiquadrates Retrograde Eris in Aries at 12:38pm and sesquiquadrates the Mean North Node in Aries at 2:16pm (and semisquares the South Node in Libra)- creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty in the sign of discernment and clarity and the Eris/North Node conjunction aligning the Activist and Warrior Goddess with the Node of Destiny! Expect some upheaval and chaos in relationships, finances, health and daily life. They may very well be for the better particularly if we have been sticking with the old from a place of control and it’s holding us back from opening up to the new. Having healthy outlets for anger and rage so emotions are not stuffed, denied or acted out in uncontrollably are key! Venus in Virgo is demanding we SEE CLEARLY— while Eris on the North Node demands we TAKE A STAND FOR TRUTH. Pay attention to what is happening today- it’s a tight trigger of the Eris/North Node conjunction incoming early Saturday Morning.


Friday October 20th-
At 1:38am the Sun cojoins Mercury at 26’34 Libra- aligning the Conscious Self and ego with the Conscious Mind and Intellect. Sun/Mercury often coincides with information, realizations and aha moments incoming. In Libra the realizations and communications can involve relationships, partnerships and marriage. The Sun and Mercury are in the midst of VERY INTENSE transits right now- quincunx Uranus, opposite Eris, conjunct the South Node, quincunx Neptune and now heading to square Pluto later today and tomorrow. The Libra part of your chart and any Libra planets around 25-28 Libra can be getting wake up calls! Use this astrology to get super clear on what needs change and then initiate it and make it happen for best results.

At 8:51pm 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 right now. 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).


Saturday October 21st-
At 3:08am the Mean North Node cojoins Retrograde Eris at 24’40 Aries – aligning the Node of Destiny and Evolution with the Goddess of Discord, Chaos, Activism and Taking a stand for Truth! The Eris/North Node conjunction is HUGE. All month long this transit has been triggered- so what is unfolding today is not necessarily surprising. On a personal level we are being asked to set things into motion, take a stand, set boundaries, say no and collectively CLAIM THE FULL POWER OF THE PEOPLE (the 99%). And if we have been keeping the peace, sweeping things under the carpet, trying to maintain appearances and otherwise avoiding reality- this astrology can feel intense. This is one of the BIGGEST Astrological events of the year (along with Pluto square the Nodes which happened on 8/3). You can read my in-depth blog about it here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/eris-conjunct-the-north-node-awaken-all-heart-warriors/

Retrograde Chiron in Aries opposes Pallas in Libra at 8:21am- creating tension between the Wounded Healer and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. Pallas wants Peace and Harmony but with Chiron opposite we need to be aware of where our wounds and pain may be choosing how we see things or understand things instead of coming from a clear and neutral space. This activates the Aries/Libra axis- the axis of me and we, independence and individuality, war and peace. If we are overly self focused we need to be aware of others- their beliefs, perspectives, and realities. Alternatively, if we are overly focused on others and afraid to take a stand, speak Truth or take care of our own needs- we need to reorient to rebalance the scales. Politically there can be quite a bit of polarization right now. There is a need to find common ground, shared humanity and a vision that has everyone in it- not just one people, one country, one ideology.

At 10:09pm the Sun in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn- creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the Lord of the Underworld. Sun/Pluto 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!

Retrograde Uranus in Taurus semisquares Vesta in Cancer at 2:42pm- creating tension between the Rebel and Revolutionary and the Priestess asteroid Goddess. Uranus/Vesta is amazing for devoting ourselves to radical and revolutionary causes. With both bodies in deeply feminine signs- this can also be about devoting ourselves to awakening and embodying the Divine Feminine. The tense aspect can bring up a lot of emotions and/or sudden/unexpected things in home/family dynamics (Vesta is in cancer after all)- so be aware and navigate with care.


Sunday October 22nd-
At 12:32am Venus in Virgo trines Retrograde Jupiter in Taurus, aligning the two Benefic planets in expansive and positive ways! With Virgo and Taurus involved positive things incoming around health, well being, work, finances and self worth are supported! This is a blessed transit that can bring blessings into your life. Be open to receive!!!!

Mercury moves out of Libra and into Scorpio at 2:49am- shifting the Mind and Intellect from Air to Water, thinking to feeling, conscious focus to the Unconscious. Mercury in scorpio is DEEP. This is a penetrating placement where we want to get to the root of what is going on. This is great for therapy, shadow work, research and investigation. Just watch out for too much intensity and obsession/compulsion in thinking and emotions- indulging in jealousy, possessiveness and power/control dynamics is not recommended!

At 12:12pm Mercury at 0’38 Scorpio trines Retrograde Saturn at 0’38 Pisces- aligning the Mind and Intellect with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. This is great astrology for serious and grounded conversations and thinking. We can see deeply and see reality – which empowers us to know what to do as we move ahead. It is a great day for research and deep talks. Pay attention to your dreams and intuition today- wise messages can be incoming you don’t want to miss.

At 2:31pm Juno cojoins Mean Black Moon Lilith at 2’08 Virgo and Chiron in Aries sesquiquadrates both of them from 3:16pm to 4:41pm – creating tension between the asteroid Goddess of Commitment and Partnership, the Fierce Dark Feminine and the Wounded Healer. This can activate power and intensity in the feminine- which may be met by masculine resistance or opposition. This can be internal in terms of our own inner feminine and masculine- or external in terms of relationships and political situations. At best Juno/Lilith is committed to seeing into the shadows, being discerning and seeing the Full Truth. Chiron in Aries reminds us that if we are afraid to activate/stand up/have agency OR if we are overly aggressive, combative and selfish- both will show their tendencies for imbalance today and it could impact our physical and mental health and well being, or play out in work situations. Tending to what is not being looked at is key.

At 8:21pm Venus in Virgo sesquiquadrates Pluto in Capricorn- creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. Virgo wants to analyze and discern while Pluto wants to expose what is hidden, toxic, stagnant and stuck. Venus in virgo does not want things to get messy but Pluto in Capricorn does not care how messy things get if it means you get into the shadow that is being denied or ignored. In relationships, Love and money situations navigate with care. Be willing to see what is not being looked at or addressed- within and without.


Have a blessed week…
